Expanding Career Opportunities




Revealed By Psychologist

Fields of sociology and psychology
offer expanding opportunities in
careers for women was the encour-
aging report that Dr. Mary Fisher of
Vassar College gave during an inter-
view while at the University Thursday
and Friday to lecture for the Marriage
Relations Courser Dr. Fisher is chair-
man of the Child Study Department
at Vassar where she is a member of
the teaching faculty.
Recent discoveries and new re-
search in mental hygiene, psychology
and psychiatry have pointed to the
fact that the earliest years in life
are the most important in develop-
ment, and that is where the preven-
tive work will be done in the future,
Dr. Fisher said. Because of this pre-
ventive instead of cure method, Dr.
Fisher pointed out that there soon
will be more clinics opened for child
guidance and marriage for normal
Women Attracted To Field
For most women, Dr. Fisher main-
tained, the social psychology and psy-
chology of family relationships and
personality adjustments are the fields
most naturally theirs. These occu-
pations follow along lines that women
have always worked and been suc-
cessful in, she declared. From one
point of view, cited Dr. Fisher, there
is less competition with men because
many of the male sex are not at-
tracted to the study of the family
and personality adjustment.
Dr. Fisher stressed the college stu-
dent's need of adequate preparation.
From the practical standpoint it's
beneficial to combine class study with
actual experience, she advised. There
are many volunteer positions open
for students with serious intentions,
and the Best!
We highly recommend for the,
{ forthcoming Interfraternity Ball
and many Pledge Formals, our
i ndividualized-'hiI' styles.

and as long as college courses in so-
ciology and psychology do not pro-
vide clinical experience as an integ-
ral part of the curriculum, it is im-
portant to obtain such experi-
ence during summer vacations, she
Experience Is Valuable
As organizations where volunteer
work might be obtained, Dr. Fisher
suggested hospitals, clinics and recre-
ation centers, there being more op-
portunities in these institutions than
most individuals realize, she added.
"Any experience is valuable which
helps the student perceive what family
and community problems are, what
helps the most and what needs to be
done," Dr. Fisher stated.
Present employment openings for
prepared women may be found in
the clinical, teaching, social service,
nursing and research fields, informed
Dr. Fisher. In social or psychiatric
.work, a woman may expect between
1,200 to 2,000 dollars as a beginning
salary, depending upon the region
of employment.
Prophesies Employment Boom
Dr. Fisher prophesied that there
may be a boom in the creation of
jobs, for the mobilization will make
more room for women and part of
the government responsibility will be
to guard against dislocations of the
The present situation in some ways
compares to the period immediately
following the first World War, said
Dr. Fisher, when getting jobs after
graduation was easier than ever be-
fore or after. "Today's college class-
es are in a favored position from the
point of view of the immediate pres-
ent," she declared.
Trip To Be Planned
For Hostelers Today
Would-be or veteran Youth Hos-
telers are invited to attend a meet-
ing at 4:15 p.m. today at the Women's
Athletic Building to make plans for
an overnight bicycle trip to the Sa-
line Valley.
This is the second trip undertaken
by interested students. Last Satur-
day 11 couples left for the valley and
returned Sunday afternoon.
Date Group To Meet
There will be a compulsory meet-
ing of the Sophomore Cabaret Date

To Be Annual
Party Theme
Dance Sponsored By Congress
Will Be Open, Informal Affair;
Bill Sawyer's Band To Play
"Coffin Capers," the 1940 version
of Congress' annual informal "fling,"
will be held from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m.
Friday, Dec. 6, in the ballroom of
the Union, but anyone who has a
weak heart, said Dick Coe, '42E,
chairman of the social committee,
had better stay away from the party.
According to usually reliable
sources, Coe said, 'Coffin Capers' will
feature the 'Creep Catacombs'. Death
never takes a holiday, he warned,
and morbidity will be the theme of
the grim affair. "Come to the 'Con-
gressional Fling' and laugh yourself
to death," Coe added.
Bill Sawyer's band will play for the
affair which will be Congress' third
open, informal dance. Tickets,
priced at $1.25 a couple, will be
placed on sale in a few days. Holders
.of the lucky tickets will receive
unique door prizes.
Members of the central committee
of the "Congressional Fling" are Coe,
William Rockwell, '41; David Panar,
'41E; Richard L. Shuey, '42E; Gordon
Andrews, '42; William Jackson, '41;
Frederick Thompson, '42E; David
Lachenbruch, '42; Albert Blaustein,
'42, and David Margold, '42E. Other
members of the lower committee will
be announced in The Daily in a few
days, along with the announcement
of the ticket sale.
Although the dance is being con-
ducted by the Independent Men's Or-
ganization, everyone, whether affili-
ated or not, is invited, Coe said.
Daily Fashion
Show To Be
Are you looking for THE formal to
wear to Interfraternity Ball or THE
dress for a weekend party?
The answer will be found at the
All-American Fashion Fantasy at
4:15 p.m. tomorrow at the Michi-
gan Theatre. On the stage will be
displayed the latest styles, satisfy-
ing enough for any clothes problem,
in a show sponsored by The Michi-
gan Daily and Ann Arbor merchants.
There is no admission charge and
everyone is invited to attend.
The theme of the Fantasy is pa-
triotic, and the stage will be draped
in red, white and blue bunting. Bill
Gail's orchestra will play, and sing-
ing with him for the afternoon's en-
tertainment will be Helen Rhodes,
'42. Miss Rhodes will sing songs ap-
propriate to the individual styles be-
ing modeled on the stage by campus
women. A spotlight will be used, and
the entire show will be given in the
same way as a stage production. In
keeping with the patriotic theme,
Betty Keppler, '41, the announcer,
will be on a draped political speak-
ers' platform.
Yellow tags with the motif of a
woman against a star, that stands
for the Fashion Fantasy, have been
distributed to women on campus. The
motif also appears on the style show
notices, including the front page of
the fashion supplement put out to-
day in connection with the fashion
