Stage, Screen
Call Alumnae
Margaret White, Martha Scott,
Ruth Hussey Are Acclaimed
For Their Outstanding Work
Fame comes to many former Mich-
igan students. Among these can be
included Margaret Bourke - White,
Martha Scott, and Ruth Hussey.'
Considered an outstanding photog-
rapher among both men and women
in that vocation is Margaret Bourke-
White who attended the University
and was enrolled in the College of
Literature, Science and the Arts from
1922 to 1924. Miss White has traveled
over the world getting photographs
of famous people and places for many
magazines, primarily Life.
A recent alumna is Martha Scott
who graduated with an A.B. degree
in 1932. Miss Scott was successful
on the New York stage and made her
debut on the screen in "Our Town".
Her acting ability has been highly
praised by critics who proclaim that
she promises to be one of the out-
standing ,moving-picture actresses.
Another newcomer to the screen
is Ruth Hussey, who attended the
Michigan Graduate School in 1933-
34. Despite the fact that Miss Hussey
has made but a few pictures, critics
have rated her work very highly. One
of her roles was as a newspaper
photographer in "The Philadelphia
Summer Directory
To Be Published
Published the first week after reg-
istration, the Summer Directory this
year will contain the usual features
of the student directory, plus the
home addresses of the students reg-
istered for the summer session, ac-
cording to Martha Graham, '41, man-
aging editor.

Jobs For Women
In Summer School
Are Many,;Varied
Women students attending summer
school have a much wider ,and more
varied field of jobs from which to
choose than do men.
According to Mrs. Elizabeth A.
Smith, Assistant in Charge of Student
Employment, positions are fewer dur-
ing the summer session than through
spring and autumn months. However,
there are opportunities to earn room
and board by waiting tables and doing
kitchen work. Miscellaneous jobs such
as gardening, and caring for lawns,
may also be obtained.
Women students, on the other hand,
may earn room and board by working
in private homes or in the dormitories.
There are also a few League positions
open which involve cafeteria and desk
work. Interested women students may
obtain, in addition, clerical or secre-
tarial work in many University! of-
fices. The Bureau of Appointments
and Occupational Information in
Mason Hall will guide students seek-
ing vocational as well as educational
guidance and will help in placing
students in business institutions

Prevent Poison Ivy
Summer-and the itch to tramp
through the great open fields is too
often followed by summer,-and the
itch. Poison ivy is an innocent look-
ing piece of twining foliage to the
inexperenced,-with three shining
green leaves and a reddish tinge to-
wards early fall. But even those who
think they know the enemyare often

like small oak trees in the grass.
Three leaves are stir the danger sig-
nal, however, and the most cautious
stay away even at the risk of losing
a wild rose plant.
But what is there to do once the
mistake has been made? Sprub with
naphtha soap within three lours, or
rinse with alcohol or kerosene. There
are several ferrous solutions which
will cut the oil of the ivy before it
corks. After the irritati'n bogins,
resist scratching, and experiment
with any of the legion cures yotr
friends will surely recommend.

If you think a summer in Ann,
-rbor means one long, drawn-out
sun-bath interspersed with a bit of
studying now and then, you're mis-
taken, because the turmoil of social
activities that whirls about the
League, really whirls.
Under the direction of Miss Ethel

League will present a social program
packed full of unique entertainment
and special events in dancing, bridge
and social hours.
Heading the list is a series of square
dancing classes to be held weekly

Institute, accompanied by seven-
piece square dance orchestra, will
supervise the instruction for the
fourth consecutive year. Lessons

of $1.50 covers the entire six lessonsj

crave to learn will find their happy
answer in Conway Magee, research

struct interested individuals in the
"ins and outs" of good bridge play-
