"I weesh I could get reed of zis
accent, but I don't sink I ever will,"
Irene Jastrzebski, '44E, told The
Daily reporter apologetically.
No doubt she has a charming Pol-
ish tint to each of the five languages1
she masters, for though Miss Jas-
trzebski has lived on every continent
but Australia, most of her life and
education have been in Warsaw. OnlyI
the German invasion caused her en-a
gineering studies to be interrupted
t here and transferred to this country.
"Engineering?" the Daily reporter
reflected. "Isn't that a bit unusual?"
Girls Study Professions t
Not at all in Warsaw, according to
Miss Jastrzebski. Most girls take up
professions, such as medicine, law
and engineering-if their social and
economic class permit the pursuit of
higher studies.
"It is zis way," she explained. "In'
Poland they are classes. Girls from1
better families with background never
used to work. When zat is change,
zey all start with type of professions.
Here, you are not like zat wis classes."
Men Secretaries Preferred
Bt t few of the women study thea
American girl's standby-the secre-
tarial course. More often it is the
man who does office work.
Another field of training limited to
men in the United States is in Poland
not only open to the women, but re-
quired of them. Every girl who grad-
uates from high school must serve
a short term of military training. Not
only traditional nursing duties, but'
sho(Xing, military tactics and defense
production methods are included in
the training period. And the training
was not wasted!
Serves As Nurse
"Everybody get a call as soon as ze
war start," said Miss Jastrzebski. She
herself served on hospital duty be-
fore leaving the country.
"But what happens to all this pro-'
fessional training and equality when
your girls marry?" the reporter won-
dered. "Do they give it all up gladly
for the home?"
She smiled. "Sure zey marry! SomeJ

of zem work, like here. Some
zem stop."

Hopes To Stay
It doesn't seem very different in
America to Miss Jastrzebski, for she's
been used to change. But she likes
the United States-at least the 35 of
them she has so far visited. And she
likes the educational opportunities
open to all classes. She .hopes, in fact.
to finish her studies here, and re-
main in America.
"Now I do the asking!" she said,
and proceeded to delve into the life
of a Daily reporter. She would like
to be in journalism, too, for she en-
joyed managing the school news-
paper for eight years in Warsaw.
"If I could just get reed of zist
accent," she laughed.
Black Comes Back
In New Fall Styles
You'd never dream of calling black
"dead" this year. It's full of life.
Last autumn you would have
thought it unspeakably dull to wear
nothing but black from head to foot.
This fall you might put on-after 5
p.m.-a black hat, black suit, black
gloves, black shoes, sheer black stock-;
ings, and find yourself the most not-
iceable person in the room.
Here's the reason: black, this year.
has glitter, the glitter of jet, the glit-
ter of sequins. For informal dances
after the football games-be in the
groove with black.
Petitions Due Today
All petitions for positions on the
central committee for Assembly Ban-
quet must be in the Undergraduate'
Office ef the League by 12 noon to-
d, -nacanced Jean Hubbard, pres-
ident of Assembly. Interviewing next
week for those who have petitioned



With the third football game of
the season as an excuse for celebra-
tion. dozens of fraternity houses and
other organizations are planning
dances and buffets for tonight.
'Ft Alpha Lambda will have a recep-
tion party from 8 p.m. to 12 p.m. at

The heroine of "Tom Sawyer" has
nothing on the smart co-ed of today
as far as supplying her class-mate-
who-sits-in-back-of-her with a thick
pig tail to do with as he may. Braided
pig tails have come into their own
at last after being confined to the
pages of our childhood novels. And
we love them!
We love them for several reasons
but mostly because they are cute as
can be and give the college gal that
piquent-innocent-as-anything look.
Then too, blowy days cannot affect
this coiffure as the braids, tied se-
curely with multi-colored ribbons,
usually keep intact. And the prov-
erbially drippy Ann Arbor. weather
will not wreak havop with this hair-
For evening, the pig tail offers a
very smdbth suggestion. Wind each
braid into a bun under each ear, add
a pair of shining ear rings an'd on
with the dance. Or, if you're the ma-
donna type, by all means halo your,
head with braids, embellishingsame
with ribbons or flowers entwined in
the braid.
What about hats? At first glance,
it might seem difficult to find a hat
to fit the pig tail arrangement but
far from it. The little Dutch hats
are perfect with braids and if you
don't look like Gretchen, we'll eat
our pig tails!

Do you have any vague ideas of
transferring? If so, or if you're just
curious about almost any college at
all, just ask one of 120 transfer wo-
men living at Mosher Hall this year.
Out of that number, there are 76
different colleges andhuniversities
represented, so your choice ought
to be among them.
One ambitious young woman, a
freshman medic, has just transferred
here from the University of Puerto
Rico and that's some distance in any
man's language, The Panama Canal
Zone Junior College is also represen-
ted by a junior who says that the
ratio of men to women is even better
there than it is here, or shall we say,
was here?
Freshman Slips In
Since Mosher is the only house on
campus entirely made up of upper-
classmen, many transfers come there
every year. The quota of residents
now includes sophomores, juniors,
seniors and graduate students. This
year, however, one lone freshman got
in some way that is a complete mys-
tery to everyone concerned, accord-
ing to those in the know.
All of the colleges represented are
in the United States or its territories,
and just about any junior college you
can mention is also included in the
list. Port Huron, Bay City, Highland
Park, Jackson; Flint, Grand Rapids,
and Fordson are a few of the Michi-
gan "jc's", while such others as Mesa
Junior College in Colorado, Colby in

Connecticut, Hibbing in Minnesota,I
Chevy Chase in Washington, D.C.,I
and Stoneleigh in Massachusetts, are
among. those on the roll-call.
Colleges Represented
Naturally, almost all of the col-
leges in Michigan have a representa-
tive, with Ohio running a close sec-
ond. There are also women from all
of the well-known women's schools
such as Vassar, Stephens, Bryn
Mawr, Mary Baldwin, Hood, Hunter,
Wellesley and Randolph-Macon.
You're probably getting dizzy from
all these names, but there are many
more represented from all over the
country. Stanford, Calif.; DePauw,
Ind.; Swarthmore, Pa.; Duke, N.C.;
Grinned, Iowa; Southern California;
University of Texas; Temple, Mo.;
Wooster, Mass.; and National Park
College, Washington, D.C. are not all
by any means. We'll stop now,
though, If your favorite school hasn't
been mentioned, just write in. It's
probably included somewhere among
the transfers.
