the society tips prospective seniors
late in the spring, and completes its
selection of membership early the
following fall.
Intended to bind the leaders of
each senior class into an active group
for the advancement of the Univer-
sity and the College of Engineering,
Vulcans also serves to acquaint the

ment with the leading students in the
other fields.
Membership is determined on the

Field trips to important transpor-
tation centers throughout the middle
west, regular meetings featuring well-
known speakers and summer jobs in
traffic engineering or related fields
are only a few of the advantages of-j
fered members of the Transportation
"Although the club has no national
affiliation its membership is large
and the opportunities for contact

members are infinite," Robert Radke,
'42E, president of the club explained.
The membership is open to all
members of the civil engineering de-
partment who are interested in Traf-
fic engineering problems. Meetingsj
are announced regularly in The Daily
and freshmen are urged to attend,
Radke said.

What does she say about you?

You know a man doesn't have

to be handsome to please a woman. But one thing most women do re-
quire in men is a fresh, well-groomed appearance. To achieve this your
clothes, and especially your linen, should have expert care.
Contrary to what you may think, expert laundry service can be
obtained from the Ann Arbor Laundries at a very reasonable price.
