Will Supervise
And I nstruct
Classes To Be Held At League;
Will Distribute Rule Booklets
And Conduct Sample Meetings
If you were conducting a meeting
and some ote should say, "I rise to
a point of order," what would you
do? Correct procedures will be out-
lined in Mortarboard's three-day ses-
sion, giving instructions to campus
women on parliamentary law, which
will open at 4:15 p.m. today in the
League, with a general meeting to
present the essential facts.
At this meeting booklets giving
handy rules of conduct for, meet-
ings will be given out to those at-
tending. The points will be 'ex-
plained andhbriefly illustrated, re-
serving the actual practice in using
them for the model meeting which
will be conducted at 4:15 p.m. to-'
Sample Meetings Planned.
At tomorrow's meeting members of
the audience will get an opportunity
to conduct sample meetings, or to
participate in. them. Those women
holding offices on campus will bene-
fit most directly from a knowledge of
the most efficient methods of con-
ducting meetings hMoreover, there
are many women who, although not
at present holding offices, can. expect
to do so in the future. This is es-
pecially ,apt to be true with the new
increased importance of the role of
women in civilian life.
The mecIatnical side of any meet-
ing will progress much more smooth-
ly if those attending have some idea
of what is expected of them, and of
what they can do and when it can
be done. lecause of this, Mortar-
board feels that the course will prove
worthwhile for those who merely in-
tend to participate in meetings, as
everyone sooner or later does.
Questions Welcome
At the third session of the dourse,
at 4:15 p.m., Friday, questions on
the information and points brought
out, in the previous sessions will be
answered. . These questions can be
submitted either during the Wednes-
day or the Thursday session.
Though spedial invitations have
been' sent to activity leaders, the
course has been created to fit the
needs of every woman on campus, ac-
cording to CPhyllis Lovejoy, '42, and
Rosebud Scott, '42, chairmen.

In 1917, the year the Michigan
Union was merely a deep cellar and
a bright hope, the University was
mobilizing for the First World War.
During this epic year J-Hop as well
as many other traditional affairs
was abandoned-at the end of this
year the present library was partly
completed. This period of change
and adjustment, war fever and an-
xiety, doubt and uncertainty is par-
allel in many ways to the one in
which we, the women of the Univer-
sity of Michigan, find ourselves to-
day. Then as now was there a gen-
eral inventory of abilities and, capa-
bilities. Let us look at the campus of
1917-18 and the work of the women
of that day. Superficially, the Uni-
versity was running just as before
and yet nothing was quite the same.
Thousands of students had left as
well as rscores of faculty members.
The campus was filled with khaki,
students in military training courses{

Specials for Wednesday

and in six weeks' course in Military
Stores given by the Engineering
Furnished Nurses
In that year, twenty-six Ann Ar-
bor nurses went into service and
twelve were in active duty in France.
Two- and three-hour courses were
introduced to the curricula in war
and food, nutrition and laboratory
work. Courses in household econom-
ics and conservation of food were,
offered, the directors of which were
in direct contact with the food ad-
ministration in Washington.
In the Literary School, such de-
fense courses weresoffered for credit
such as The Theory and Practice of
Publicity and the Methods and Prin-
ciples of Government Censorship. In
the department of philosophy, Prof.
R. W. Wenley gave a course on the
moral and spiritual issue of the war.
Women Loaned
A Liberty Loan campaign was en-
tered upon by the League and an
average subscription among women
was secured, higher than that of the
student body as a whole,. Many
women earned their contributions by
taking care of children, tutoring,
clerical work and even helping the
Work on surgical dressings at An-
gell House was taken up and girls
were taught the habit of dropping in
for an hour between classes-"hours
at Red Cross" were part of every
University woman's life-
Women Registered
women registered for war serv-
icts'c- did their bit of knitting and
discussed veemently tile "back to
the land", movement. A military unit
was organized for women, with
training in army tactics and hikes in
the Arboretum as part of its activi-
ties, On review, this unit formed an
official division of the officers Re-
serve Corps.
Movements to cut down on luxuries
and to simplify social life resulted
in entire renunciation of formal par-
ties and the establishment of 8-11:30
dances in women's houses.
Because of the man shortage, one

versity. Mr. Stevens, who received
his masters degree here, is a son
of Mrs. F. H. Stevens and the late
Prof. Stevens of the College of En-
gineering. He is a member of Theta
Chi fraternity.
The engagement of Ila Waggoner,
'42L, to Charles Day Johnson, 141L, of
Cleveland, 0.s was announced Jan.
4 by the mother of the bride-elect,
Mrs. Carrie Waggoner.hThe wedding
date was not set.
Miss Waggoner is a member of
Kappa Beta Pi, international law sor-
ority, and Mr. Johnson belongs to
the Order of Coif, national law school
honor society. He is now associated
with the law firm of Baker, Hostet-
ler and Patterson at Cleveland. His
parents are Mr. and Mrs. E. T. John-
son, of Warren, Pa.

of the greatest controversies in the
history of the University was waged
-whether women could participate
in the Union Opera! This actually
came to pass as well as the awarding
of fifteen Daily positions to women.
Women look over the imlander and
Ga'goyle and even, rumor' lath it,
tireatened the rootball team.
The picture of women in the First
World War is one of spirit and ac-
tivity. but, it seems from reports that
mobilization of women was not at
its maximum strength until the be-
ginning of 1918, almost ten months
after our entry! They were willing,
but slow to organize. Their efforts
were so vital after they had gathered
momentum that our generation of
women students can well profit by
their contributions to he coutnry
and the campus and organize our
own efforts with as much speed and
power as possible.
