British Speaker
Lays Emphas
On Mechanics
"An important thing your univer-
sity can do to prepare for defense is
to give both men and women the ut-
most possible mechanical training,
as our women's three to six months
engineering, courses are barely ade-
quate," Caroline Haslett, adviser to
the British Minister of Labor' on
Women's Training, said yesterday at
a League luncheon.
In England, Miss Haslett said, hun-
dreds of women are paying to take
the government engineering course.
"Women have proved that they can
do skilled work," she stated, "and they
are now taking over jobs such as air
raid inspection and anti-aircraft
Misfortune, Miss Haslett pointed
out, has forced experiments in using
women in industry and in the armed
forces. In addition it has become
possible and necessary to educate
English folk from the slums in better'
ways of living and to give them train-
ing in proper food preparation and
health value. It is difficult to tell,
however, she said, just when intensive
training should begin to be most ef-
Miss Haslett stated she felt the
greatest problem America will, have
to face in the future will be the res-
toration of Europe. American help
in England, she said, was appreciated
as greatly for the moral support it
provided as for the material aid it

Somewhere, somehow, sometime, on this great campus, we feel we
shall find the one person who has pot been asked to pose for the new, deluxe,
richly-bound and profusely illustrated issue of Gargoyle,
This particular issue, we might add, will be the Gargoyle's salute to
Mademoiselle, the periodical which you, Gwendolyn, and you too, Millicent,
keep on your desk for frantic consultation when Joe on Friday night or
Adrian on Saturday night do not respond in the manner in which the Eau
de Polecat ad on page 67 said they would. Personally, we have our own idea
of what a salute to Mademoiselle should be; we would even diagram it for
you if it weren't for Emily and those silly libel laws. Ah, but these are fond
longings which arise and must be suppressed in the best of us.
Anyway, to get back to the Garg interpretation of the woman beautiful,
quite a few pictures had to be taken to illustrate the gags that were thought
up. (Interpret gags, in that last sentence, as laugh-provoking lines or situa-
tions-not the why that may have occurred to you at first.) It was really
pitiful to see the eager smiles on the faces of the coeds as they entered the
office--thyey were going to have their pictures taken for the campus maga-
zine! And they had great visions -of seeing beneath those pictures, the cap-
tion, "Campus Beauty"---or perhaps, even, "The Campus Beauty."
Ruined Hopes
Egad, what a change, as unkind hands smashed something like shower
caps on their heads or black caps over their teeth. You've never seef such
beaten looks. Makes one think of a Greek tragedy.
The staff suffered, too. For one feature called, "Eat and Run," (your
first thought on reading that phrase was probably the right one), it was
necessary to conjure up a little mixture which would
photograph perfectly revoltingly. They did it, with
the help of some rubber cement, ink, dog food, and
a lock of Al Axelrod's wind-blown hair; but when last
:peen, everyone was standing around taking on the
horrible pallor of a poached egg tle.t had been
poached too long.
If Mimes is the success which its publicity men
would have you believe it is going to be, you can lay
that success at the door of men with the indomitable spirit whicrh Nate Bry-
ant has. Our boy, Nate, is but an obscure chorus lad (-sob on that, please),
but he is a particular kind of chorus lad. Nate, good friends, is the first on
the left in the group of four, which in an impressionistic ballet, interprets
the spirit of the Rhumba. Nate may have his faults; his measurements may
include the words: Chest, 36"; Chest Expanded, 36"-but for non-faulty
hip action, he undoubtedly takes the biscuit in any league. A salute, then,
to Bryant of the Grand Rapids Bryan~s. May he never get paralysis--at
least not until the Union Opera is over.
Social Stuff
Everyone had a very gay time Friday night dancing to the stuff which
"Pee Wee" Irwin and his Cleveland Trianon smart set orchestra dealt out
at Panhellenic Ball at the League, or to the music of Bill Sawyer at. the
Union where Paul Bunyan's headquarters for the evening were located.
Couples at Panhel included Janet Fisher and John Leidy, Barb Mc-
Laughlin aild Chuck Haughey, Sue Cone and John Purdue, Ginny Morse
and John Fletcher, Phyl Sheehy and Russ Hadley, Marjorie Leete and Pete
Wege, Edith Jense'n and Gil Walker, Carol Forsythe and Harry Altman, Ag-
gie Crow and Bill Funk, Sally Walsh and Freeman Alexander, and Nancy
Stock and Bill Sessions.
Paul Bunyan-that big fellow to the left as you entered the ballroom-
entertained Helen Schmale and Bill Hauser, Bette Ross and Dick Kebler,
Dottie Brooks and\ Al Darling, Millie DaLee and Al Thomas, and Mabe Luton
and Brad Williams.


WAA To Hold
Mass Meeting
Donelda Schaible To biscuss
'Women Leadership' Training
With the primary aim of enlarging
its program to include the scope of
national defense WAA, under the
leadership of Donelda Schaible, '42,
will hold a mass meeting at 4 p.m. to-
morrow at the W.A.B. for all women
who would be interested in an or-
ganization for leadership training.
"The present crisis has brought
about a demand for women trained
in recreational leadership so that
they may take an important place in
the needs demanded by the defense
program," Miss Schaible said. "To
meet this, WAA is expanding its pro-
gram so that leadership training may
be offered to University women.
Such an organization would give
valuable experience to those who are
interested in camp counseling, com-
munity recreation and playground
work. The program of the club will
also meet the needs of those girls
whose health ratings are such that
they cannot participate actively in
Opportunity will be given to learn
to keep score, keep time, and to ref-
eree tournaments sponsored by WAA.
Credit, will be given for participation
in these activities, just the same as
in any other WAA club work.
At the meeting plans will be dis-
cussed for the different aspects of
the work to be done, but Miss Schai-
ble stresses the fact that the pro-
gram will be expanded to meet. all
the interests and desires of the wom-
en who attend.
