Students Work At Varied Jobs
To Earn Way Through School


Contrary to the belief held in many
quarters, college students of today,
for the most part, do not live on vel-
vet and content themselves with hav-
ing a good time on the money of
their generous parents. College is
difficult to enter and difficult to stay
in, and the financial barrier is one of
the most important.
How to obtain the funds to go to
college has led students into a myri-
ad of pursuits. Michigan men and
women have not lagged.
Departing from the usual board or
room job, one student operats his
own grocery. No less enterprising
are those hardy souls who pick up
those-oft-needed extra shekels by act-
ing as blood donors in hospitals here.
When you go to the theatre in Ann
Arbor you -may be shown to your seat
by an economics major; your 3:00
coke may be served up by an embry-
onic doctor, or if you are fortunate;
enough to have permission to drive a
car, your gas is likely to be served up
by a soon-to-be engineer.
Newspaper correspondenceies are
held by several students; all Detroit
papers and the national news services
are represented in Ann Arbor. Several
outstate papers also have represen-
tatives to catch important athletic
and general news events. This group
is probably the hardest worked in the
University; hours are long and fre-
quently take a good part of the night.
Another field invaded by those gift-
ed with writing ability has beel the
ghost writing business. For a con-J

sideration certain gentlemen have
been known to write themes for less
talented albeit more pecunious broth-
er students.
More legitimate are those students
who earn part of their expenses by
typing long theses at so much a page.
The printing field has its share of
college men working in its various
branches, skilled and unskilled alike.
Students paid regular rates deliver
The Daily from house to house.
Also industrious are those students
who clerk in Ann Arbor stores. Others
have obtained lines of sport goods
which they display in fraternity and
rooming houses, receiving stipulated
commissions on all they sell. Gradu-
ate students oftentimes make partial
expenses tutoring, helping troubled
underclassmen over rough spots in
their University careers.
Cameras have brought money to
many students through local work
and, in the case of a fortunate few,
photo sales to nationally leading
magazines have been made. The
much ballyhooed date bureaus have
never done very well at Michigan.
Also on the list are students with
library and hat check jobs.
The most usual type of job, how-
ever, is the board job, in which the
student works from two to three
hours a day and receives as payment
all his meals. Some students also
earn their room rent by doing seven
to ten hours of work a week at odd
jobs in the house. Restaurants, co-
operatives, the Union and League
are the usual suppliers of board jobs.
