OnWar Crisis
Lecture Is First On Series
To Be Held At Rackham
School; Public Is Invited

The ever-popular jacket is an indispensable part of the coed ward-
robe, and at this season it may be either plaid or a solid color. The wasp
waist of the 1890's is reflected even in the definitely sporty wearing
apparel of the college woman, and the football shoulders as well as the
football plaids are very much in evidence. The advantage of a jacket
in this uncertain An Arbor fall weather is that it may either be worn
separately when the sun shines or under a coat when the autumn breezes
turn into winter blasts.
Women To Have Ailing Grades
Doctored By Tutorial System

Women as well as men will be able
to have their ailing grades doctored
under the tutorial system, which goes
into action this fall immediately
after the freshmen receive their five
week's grades.
The tutorial system was inaug-
erated last spring by Congress, the
independent men's association, and
proved very successful in both the
engineeringand literary schools. The
tutors were selected from various
men's honorary societies.
SEngineers Helped
"Of the 25 engineers with D' and
"ET grades who were tutored last
spring there were no flunks," said
Jack-Shuler, '40E, who has been ac-
tive in establishing the system on this
Any woman interested in improving
her grades simply has to apply for a
tutor in the Undergraduate office of,
the League. There her case will be
considered and a tutor duly assigned
to relieve her of her plight. Freshmen
are especially invited to take ad-
vantage of this opportunity.
The only compensation required for
this service is a 25 cent fee that is be-
ing charged this year for each lesson.

It is felt by the sponsors of the tu-
torial system that the students will
cooperate more with the efforts of
their tutors because in paying such a
fee they are signifying that they
are sincerely interested in trying to
make the most of the opportunity
offered them.
Time To Be Optional
The time and place for each indi-
vidual's tutoring period is to be de-
cided between the student and the
tutor. The usal procedure will be
a one hour period each week.
Under the newly combined sponsor-
ship of the League and Panhellenic
councils, members of Wyvern, Mor-
tar Board, Alpha Lambda Delta, and
other women's honor societies are
being asked to volunteer their serv-
ices as tutors. Other women aca-
denically eligible may also volunteer.
as tutors.
"The success of the women's tu-
torial system this fall will depend en-
tirely on the cooperation of the stu-
dents and the tutors," said Jane
Krause, '41,
