For Nurses' Aides
College Women Are Preferred;
Nursing Schools Open Doors
To Recruits During Midyear
Because of the urgent need for
more nurses, both in the Army and
Navy Corps, and in civilian organiza-
tions, the Nursing Council on Na-
tional Defense has sent out an appeal
to college women interested in serv-
ing their country.
"Young women with one or more
years of college are likely to be given
preference over high school gradu-
ates in entering good schools of nurs-
ing and to advance more quickly to
positions of responsibility," Kathar-
ine Faville, chairman of the Commit-
tee on Recruitment of Student
Nurses, points out.
Nursing Is Career
"Nursing is a career, not just for
the emergency, but for a life time.
It has more 'top positions' as admin-
istrators, supervisors, and teachers
than it has women qualified to fill
them. It provides the college gradu-
ate with a better median income,
both in her first year and later, than
does any other occupation, said the
Expenses for the usual 3-year nurs-
ing course are low, and may be sup-
plemented by scholarships. Oppor-
tunities for usefulness are almost un-
limited, especially in post-war recon-
struction all over the world."
Midyear classes, admitting new
students in February, are now being
opened by many of the 1300 nursing
schools in the United States, with
3-year programs leading to a nursing
diploma, and a 4-year or 5-year com-
bination academic and basic profes-
sional program, leading to a bacca-
laureate degree and nursing diploma.
There are also programs for college
graduates only, leading to the degree
of Master of Nursing, being offered
by nursing schools affiliated with
universities and colleges.
The Nursing Council on National
Defense, now engaged in recruiting
50,000 new student nurses for 1942,
represents the national professional
organizations of nurses, the Ameri-
can Redl Cross, and the nursing serv-
ices of the federal government.
It also works closely with the sub-
committee on Nursing of the Health
and Medical Committee in the Office
of Defense Health and Welfare Serv-
Any additional information may
be obtained from the Nursing Infor-
mation Bureau, 1790 Broadway, New
York, N. Y. This appeal has been cir-
culated to colleges and universities
throughout the country in order that
the matter be brought to the atten-
tion of well-qualified college women
willing to serve their country.

When you are literally "worn out"
these next two weeks and just think
that you can't study another minute
-and that time comes to everyone,
doesn't it? and you haven't the cour-
age to stay away from the books
more than an hour or even half an
hour, then the time has come to re-
lax, and do it with sports.
The bowling alleys down at the
W.A.B. will be open for you book-
weary people, and you'll be surprised
what a line or two of bowling will do
for 'that tired feeling.' A little exer-
cise and relaxation will net rewards
when you pop back to your deck,
fresher and with a new slant on that
history book or those soc. notes.
Barbour Gym will be open every
evening and some afternoons for
badminton, and that's another re-
laxing way to spend an hour. Be-
lieve it or not, "all work and no play
really will make Joan a dull girl".
so can you take a hint or shall we
say a none-too-subtle suggestion?
Basketball scores for the last week
show that Collegiate Sorosis whipped
Mosher I, 16-8; Mosher II did the
same to Martha Cook, 29-26; also,
Alpha Chi Omega to Pickerell, 25-11;
Delta Gamma downed Alpha Xi Del-
ta, 14-11; Alpha Delta Pi beat Alpha
Phi, 19-10, and Alpha Epsilon Phi
defaulted to Jordan.
Chi Omega and Couzens I played
a rip-snorting game which ended in
a tie, 13-13, and when re-played
Couzens came out on top, 17-7.
One finalist in the A tourney was
determined this week when in a
scrumptiously-close game, 18-16. Al-
pha Delta Pi nosed out Collegiate
Sorosis. At the end of the first quar-
ter the score was 3-5, thus indicating
what evenly-matched and excellent
teams they are. And to play at 5:10
today in the finals of the A tourney
will be Alpha Delta Pi vs. Martha

would serve the purpose admirably.
If you're to be an air-raid warden-

We are now on the brink of a
daylight saving time crisis, for Pres-
ident Roosevelt put his John Han-
cock on a daylight savings time bill
yesterday and come Feb. 9 the fun
will begin. Picture for a moment,
what this will mean to the lads and
lassies at Fair Michigan.
Watch Your Watch
As we fall out of bed and are on
our way to classes, the only thing
that will tell us the difference be-
txVeen night and day will be the
radium dials on our wrists for it will
be pitch black outside.
Classrooms will be flooded with
light which might be quite a shock
to our nervous systems at such an
early hour. Neon 4gns will prove
a serious distraction, too, especially
if the one right outside your window
advertises your favorite thirst-
See The Moon?
Early to bed and early to rise will
be the order of the day but who
wants to get up when the moon is
still visible in the sky?
We get awfully mad now when we
have to fight our way through the
crowd to our dormitory door at clos-
ing hours but daylight saving time
will eliminate this. Wooing will have
to take place elsewhere for no one
wants to be seen in a fond embrace
in broad daylight.
.Come In Early
Think of having to end dates and
weekends earlier when we're quite
wrapped up in those events as it is.
But think of getting out of school
an hour earlier, too. That's not so
The war has certainly done much
to upset our lives and in view of this
bill, we mean literally. Come spring,
however, longer days can be given to
a young man's thoughts and we'll
probably all be "out for defense."
Perk Hats Featured
If you're not going to answer the
call for student nurses, as put forth
in the story to the left, at least you
may take the course that's to be
offered in training nurses' aides!
We'll say that such is the case,
and in the meantime you're in a
quandry about what the well-dressed
nurse's aide is wearing. Their uni-
forms may differ in different locali-
ties, but we understand that here
the uniform will be pale blue, with
a white pinafore topping it.
Are You An Aide?
The one in the picture may give you
a vague idea as to the appearance of
yourself as an aide. Whether or not
the pert white cap will be a part of
the outfit is a question, but it's
more than likely, and the snood effect
is more than necessary and practical
to keep your tresses out of your
own and your patient's eyes.
If you can't visualize yourself run-
ning around taking temperatures, ad-
ministering back-rubs, and generally
humoring the injured or sick, there's
always the Motor Corps! Realize,
howsoever, that here you'll spend a
lot of time in overalls and slacks, so
better be sure you're willing.
-Or A Mechanic
Style in overalls can be had, but
when you're working hard under a
car, it's comfort that's most import-
The time arrives when all good
"Collegiennes" must burrow into the
depths of their wardrobes and find a
hat for that special occasion. If it
happens in your case that those on
hand are either out of date or abso-
lutely out of question, it's time to
stalk the milliners in search for a
perfect answer to your problem.
It's a nice feeling to have your
date for a tea dance look admiring-
ly atyou and say, "You really look
swell!" And that's what inevitably
will happen if you choose a velvet
calot with a gay flower perched where
it will rest right in the center of your
There are times, too, when you'll
need a casual hat that offers a
change from the classic felt rollers:.
In this case don't give up your hunt
until you find a visored cap that you
will wear on the back of your head
for that careless, yet charming effect.
Its success will make you wonder how
you ever got along without it.

To Be Exhibited
The various phases of work done
by the Michigan Arts and Crafts
Project, of the Public Works Admin-

Rackham galleries from 2 p.m. to
5 p.m., and 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
through Jan. 31, the Ann Arbor Art
Association announced recently.1
Under the sponsorship of this
group, the exhibition shows the fields
in which the Michigan P.W.A. has
been active through the medium of
photo-montage and by several rep-
resentative actual works.
The several large panels of pho-
tography cover the subjects of cer-
amics, textiles, furniture making,
silk screen printing, sculpture, wood
carving and mural painting. In-
cluded among examples of ceramics
is an excellent replica of the figure
which is mounted behind the Wom-
en's League Building.

gram for the 1941-42 season, this
display was substituted for the one
on "Small Sculpture Through the

uled. The latter showing was unob-
