The: two main problems confront-V

how to organize nursing in rural
cOmmunities .where it has not yet
been established, and how to coor-

there are both private and public

well as lay members, of the commun-.

members of each staff will under-

The immediate goal is to have the
state department in charge of health
supervision and prevention of com-

Campus Differs
On Honors System

System is not applicable in the liter-
ary college because the literary stu-
dents differ from the engineers-they
are human."
Prof. Benjamin Wheeler of the His-
tory department: "While I do not
think the Honoif System is definitely
objectionable, I doubt whether it
would work as well in the literary
college as in the engineering school

inasmuch as the literary college is
much larger and has less esprit de
corps. Yes, the proctor system is
better, I believe, than the Honor

no. Students find their notebooks
too handy. Literary students also
are not concerned very much with
the after effects of. their education.
It's not essential for them to know
formulas and materials they'll have
to apply later. Accordingly, they
don't believe they're cheating them-

Glee Club Inaugurates Custom
Of Campus Serenades In Fall


Group To Sing To Dorms
And Sororities In First;
Autumn Performances
Lilting college melodies, remini-!
scent popular airs, and football songs
floating out of the evening during
these fall nights are not the result
of an overloud radio, but the best
efforts of the Varsity Men's Glee
Club, who will soon present their first
fall serenades in a number of years.
The Club, according to Robert
Vandenberg, '40, business manager,-
is presenting the fall sings in an
attempt to more satisfactorily enter-
tain the campus. The songs are giv-
en for the benefit of sororities and
women's dormitories.
Previous to this year one sere-
nade, given in the spring, was the
only informal all campus effort of
the glee singing group. Difficulties
arouse, said Vandenberg, due to the
extent of 'singing which had to be
done at one time to reach every one.
Starting late in the evening to be
sure of an audience, the club rarely
completed its rounds before the small
hours of the morning. Few of the
girls in the last houses on the list
heard the serenade.
In addition to the innova'tion of the
fall sing, the practice is being inaugu-
rated of two sings during the fall
period, rather than one. This practice
possibly will also apply to the spring
event also. A difficulty encountered
in addition to that of the time re-
uired, is the not unpleasant. one of
singing with a large number of dough-
Womens Debating
SquadChoses Four
Jane Krause, '41, Jane Sapp, '41,
Jean Maxted, '41, and Mary Martha
Taylor, '42, were chosen to the wo-
men's varsity debate team by Mrs.
Frederic O. Crandall, women's de-
bate coach, at the tryouts held at
7:30 p.m. yesterday in Room 3209
The team will travel to Ohio State
University Dec. 8 to participate in a
roundtable discussion on the topic,
"Should Anti-Democratic Organiza-
tions in the United States Be Sup-
pressed?" After the two-day dis-
cussion a representative from each of
the Big Ten schools participating
in the meet will present conclusions
reached at the roundtable in a radio

nuts and an indeterminant amount of
cider under the belt.
It has been the custom in the past
for the various women's groups to
provide refreshments as a token of
their appreciation for the vocal ren-
ditions. At times, this involves the
tradition of putting cigarettes for
the boys on their front steps, but us-
ually they are invited in.
It is the proud boast of the singing
club that they, and they alone are the
only men's group on campus allowed
legally in women's residences after
hours. This honor has been handed
down through the years, helping, no
doubt, to perpetuate the custom of the
campus serenades. In practice, the
men usually sing a song or two, and
then are invited in the house where
they can group around the piano.

There's something about a Manhattan shirt that
sets it apart, something in the precise perfection
that runs through every solitary inch of it. Man-
hattan shirts are true thorobreds-generations of
Manhattan shirts have preceded them.
Note the fine finish of the fabric, the exquisite
details of the tailoring, the smooth cut of the col-
lar, the tasteful harmony of color and pattern.
You'd do well to polish up your appearance with
some of the new Manhattans we have just re-
If any Manhattan Shirt ever shrinks below the indicated
size, we will give you a new shirt. Tested and approved
by the American Institute of Laundering.
