Lecture To Be
Last In Series
Topic To Be Discussed Is
Vocational Information
For College Women
All women students have been in-#
vited to attend the last in the series
of Orientation lectures to be given byj
Mrs. Katharine B. Dunbar at 5 p.m.
today in the Lydia Mendolssohn The-j
ater of the League, Marcia Connell,
'39, chairman of Orientation an-
nounced today.
Mrs. Dunbar. who comes to Ann
Arbor from Katharine Gibbs School
in Boston, will discuss the subject,
"College Women In Business." She
holds degrees of A.B. and M.A. from
The freshman picnic, originally
scheduled to be held today, has
been postponed until next Wednes-
day, Oct. 26, on account of the
freshman lecture to be held on the
same date.

After two weeks of learned com-
ments on things we don't know any-
thing about, we wanna get back to
Freshman, you've probably noticed
that the haze which has been notice-
able on campus during the last three
weeks has gone-vanished-disap-
peared! Why? Because rushing is
over! Campus is settling back to nor-
From now on life-in the raw-
begins. Would you forgive us, and take
us just a bit seriously, if we tried to
give you a little advice?
It's a queer world you've come to,
different from anything you'll ever
find in later life. 'A community of
scholars'-well, maybe-at any rate
it's surely a community. If you're
normal you'll want to keep up with
the Jones' Mary, and if you do, you're
normally foolish.
Probably right there lies the root of
your happiness or disillusionment for
the next four years. There are two
ways to keep up with Mary that open
for, you immediately, and though
they're both very venerable institu-
tions, we strongly advise against them.
Men, en masse, and politics!
Right here we have to stop to as-
sure you that we're not in the least
prim. Honestly. But we do have a yen
to help, in a way we feel would have
helped us when we were freshmen.
Popularity and politics-both are
hollow. Men-(we'll hear from them
tomorrow) -are inclined to follow the
crowd, and all one has to do is use
mob psychology on them. Class poli-
tics, on the other hand, are composed
of a nebulous stuff which vanishes
on careful inspection.
We're not entirely negative on this
subject. We advise: 1. Ferret out those
three or four friends for whom you
have a sincere liking and hang onto
them. 2. Remember that four years
from now you'll be glad if you have
something to show for your education
beside a string of dance programs.
3. If you are the type which has been
active in extra-curricular activities
all your life and couldn't be happy
without them, find the activity which
I best suits you and stick to it.

arine Gibbs, Mrs. Dunbar has taught

She is also experienced in vocational
speaking in schools and colleges.
Vocational information and place-
ment material will be included int
Mrs. Dunbar's speech today. In dis-
cussing the possibilities for college
women in business, she will emphasize
the qualities that the college woman
brings to her work and the criticisms
that employers sometimes make of
the college woman.
Mrs. Dunbar will also outline the
fields of employment for college wo-
men, and discuss the homely essentials
necessary for a business woman's suc-
The lecture will begin promptly at
5 p.m. today, Miss Connell announced.

asked to meet their groups and take
attendance. League points will be giv-
en for perfect attendance at the series
