Tips On Women's War Duties

"Eat fish, they feed themselves,"
advises a sea green poster with two
glassy-eyed cods blowing bubbles
among the weeds. Visitors to the
Rackham building poster exhibit can
continue down the line of posters
from World War I with a more im-
mediate interest than curiosity.
"Eat less meat, less wheat, less
sugar and fats!" "Sugar means ships
--the sugar you use to sweeten your
beverage could cary arms to France.',
With urgent pleas and vivid compari-
sons the battle was carried on at
home in 1918. How would the Amer-
ican girl of 1941 rally to the cause,
and how would she be stirred by ap-
peals such as these?
Women Economize
She would find her most immediate
duty in the home, according to the
posters, where she would learn to
substitute skillfully, and use the last
nourishing bite for tempting leftover
dishes. She woule? have to learn not
to depend on the simple fried dishes,
but conserve -fat by baking and boil-
ing. Corn, oat and rye beads would
.take the place of wheat, and a kit-
chen garden supply fruits and vege-
tables for canning. Miss 1941 doesn't
know how to bake and can? She'd
learn how-through organized clubs!
and government booklets.
She might not be a salvation array
"lassie", lauded by one of the posters
for her uplifting influence on the
morale of the soldiers, but there
would certainly be a comparable in-
stitution where the girls of 1941
could organize to inspire and cru-
Certainly the "most blessed mother

in the world", as one poster called the
Red Cross, would continue to function
actively, and enlist the services of the
modern girl. The Y.WC.A., too, put
out its call for volunteer work, in
World War I with smiling damsels in
1918 styles cheering war weary boys,
or gazing defiantly into space.
But only one poster beckoned to
the working girl. Boldly portraying
a short haired lass in overalled pant-
aloons, it declared "For' every fighter
a woman worker!" Present methods
in Europe would indicate that wohnen
in 1941 are more ready and capable
of replacing their husbands in indus-
Farms Call Women
The farmerette arose from urgent
necessity in the war of 1918, when
hungry mouths in Europe as well
as Anerica called for a larger .crop
than ever before, and manpower on
the farm was scarce.
In social work, in the home, in in-
dustry and in nursing, the woman of
1941 would find herself as necessary
in an emergency asodid her mother.
Volley Bal Contest
To Be Held Tuesday
The WAA Board has challenged the
League Council to a novel volley ball
game at 4 p.m. on Tuesday in Bar-
bour Gymnasium.
For variety, a balloon will be sub-
stituted for the usual volley ball, andj
to weight it sufficiently for play the
balloon will be partially filled with
water. Rumor has it that WAA will
next challenge the Women's Staff of
The Daily.

Frame Plans
For Fortnight
Senior Society To Be Sponsor;
Members Will Present Quiz
Proram To All Dormitories
Plans for Independent Fortnight,
to begin two weeks before the an-
nual Assembly Banquet, Nov. 10, were
decided upon at a recent meeting of
Senior Society members, announced
Rosebud Scott, '42, president of the
The program to be sponsored by
Senior Society, will take in the five
groups of independent women which
make up Assembly; the dormitories,
31 league houses, three cooperative,
houses, Beta Kappa Rho, made up
of women working on campus, and
the Ann Arbor Independents. Mem-
bers of the honorary organization
will take part in each program
planned for the individual groups.
To Present Quiz Program
For independent women in all of
the dormitories, there will be after-
hour parties arranged by five mem-
bers of the society with the house
president. These five women will
present a quiz program to dormitory
residents, consisting of questions con-
cerning activities on campus such as
athletics, publications and League
committees. There will be time al-
lotted for members of the audience to
ask their own questions from the
The 61 league houses will be divid-
ed among the 15 members of Senior
Society. In cooperation with the
house president, these women will en-
tertain the residents at dinner or
at a meeting, according to the wishes
of the individual houses. This will
also be the case with the three co-
operative houses. There will be spe-
cial njeetings for them in accordance
with their own plans.
G rouns Will Meet
Beta Kappa Rho will be enter-
tained at an informal get-together
with the members of the society, and
the Ann Arbor Independents will
have an afternoon mass meeting with
them. This meeting will place em-
phasis on freshman and transfer wo-
men who are anxious to become ac-
quinted with activities on campus.
Jean Johnson, '42Ed. manager of
WAA Intramural sports, will work
in cooperation with Senior Society
on material to be presented concern-
ing athletics. Miss Marie Hartwig,
of the physical education depart-
ment, is acting as adviser to the
members during the Fortnight.
At these programs, parties, and
meetings, a special booklet compiled
by members of the society, will be
handed out to each woman. These
booklets will contain detailed infor-
mation concerning how, when, and
where, an individual may try out for
a certain activity, whom she must
contact in connection with it, and
other material designed to aid future
activity women.
Michigan Coed
Mixes Jewels
And I ngenui ty
What with having to wear such
standardized costume as skirt, sweat-
er and dicky, kvery coed needs a
trademark to make her different
from the rest. She may use ctume
jewelry, hair-dos, or she may dis-
play her ingenuity with flighty fur-
belows accenting date dresses.
One Michigan coed owns a large
necklace made of white and red corn

tied behind with rawhide which she
wore constantly untk a small de-
fenseless-looking worm crawled out
on her neck! A girl from Hawaii has
a long necklace of little brpwn seeds
which her clever sister strung in a
delicate design.
The college shops, too, are all
for promoting originality in personal
decoration. Some of their necklaces
and bracelets are nothing more than
the bright beads such as we all used
to have on our highchairs. Others
are constructed of, raffia, leather,
or yarn.
Window . displays reveal Indian
beadwork, suede flowers, a black and
goldi sea-horse pin, hand-woven belts,
a silver scimitar pin with a fierce
Moslem face on the handle, Chinese
carved bone jewelry, wooden apples
on yarn, Kashmir turquoise neck-
laces, a necklace-bracelet-ear-ring
set of spun silver from Calcutta, and
dozens of other whimsies.
And then you can always get some
wandering relative to bring souven-
irs back from the places he's been.
But if you have no convenient rel-
atives, maybe you can work the bar-
ter system with a pen-pal from South
America. She'd be glad, no doubt, to
exchange hand-made wares from her
land for some good old American
machine-made cosmetics and what-
not. It's a good opportunity if you're
sharp for doing your bit toward im-
proving Pan-American trade.

Dormitory To Give
Only Dance Of Day

To assist in the present emergency
of the shortage of nurses which is
being felt throughout the country,
Miss Rhoda Reddig, Director of tle
School of Nursing, suggests an in-
crease in the number of subsidiary
workers, such as the ward helper and
nurse's aid.
Although the shortge is nothing
new, since it existed even before
the defense program went into effect,
it has proved a source of concern to
nursing both in the civilian and mili-
tary fields. "The number of nurses
graduating in the past few years has
increased," Miss Reddig says, "but
the demand has been much greater,
due, in part, to public health and in-
dustrial needs."
More Employment Now
Miss Reddig, who is also director
of the Nursing Service at University
Hospital, adds that "hospitals have
employed more nur-ses in recent years
because of an increasing number of
patients, due perhaps to the 'hospital-
ization plans' which allow for pay-
ment of a fixed amount per year for
treatment in the hopsitals."
The use of more subsidiary helpers


in hospital and home care would then
relieve the nurse of many duties
which she could relinquish to this
type of worker. thus allowing her to
work in another field more demand-
ing at this time, such as the American
Red Cross or the Army Nursing Corps.
Seek Adventure
Miss Reddig, who is in charge of
Red Cross Nursing for Washtenaw,
Livingston and Lenawee counties, re-
echoes the call of Miss Mary Beard,
national director of the American
Red Cross, for more nurses. but is
confident that "the army will get
enough nurses if we are actually in
the war."
One of the reasons for her opinion
on this score is that nurses, like
everyone else, want adventure and
excitenent and when it can be found,
they will undertake jobs which lead
to it. This fact is substantiated by
Miss Beard's account that "when
nurses were torpedoed going to Eng-
land recently with the Harvard field
hospital unit, and five of them were
lost, their places were filled im-
Nurses aren't joining Red Cross
units for the further reasons that the
pay is less than it is in civilian hos-
pitals and that they are given no
choice as to where they go. Once
signed up, either as volunteer for a
one year period or as a definite part
of the Army Nursing Corps for three
years, they are sent where they are
needed, Miss Reddig added.
Glorified Mitten Is
Fashion's Favorite
Come fair weather or foul, the
Michigan coed will keep her fingers
warm with mittens disguised as
goalies' gloves or mother's mop.
She may appear at football games,
hands and arms protected by elbow-
length handknit mitts, wearing knee
socks that carry the same cable stitch,
or a perfect copy of the football,...
pigskin gloves with lacing.
