Jane Connell
To Be Editor
Mademoiselle Magazine Selects
Michigan Coed As Guest Editor
Jane Connell, '42, has been chosen
by Mademoiselle Magazine as one of
ten guest college editors to put out
its August college issue, making this
the third consecutive year that a
Michigan girl has received such an
Although the usual procedure is
that the win'ers participate in the
ten monthly quizzes that Mademoi-
selle puts out concerning college
fashions, Miss Connell entered late
and participated in only three. How-
ever she sent an article called "It
Doesn't Cost a Fortune to Be Well-
Dressed in Michigan" which im-
pressed the editors so that they told
her she didn't have to take the other
Some of the topics that Miss Con-
nell was quizzed on were her favorite
college slang, the etiquette for listen-
ing to hot jazz. In competition with
about 3,000 girls, she was one of six
prize winners on the quiz which de-
manded a description of the most
perfect evening in your college town.
As a guest editor, she will receive
a trip to New York for the month of
June, after which she and nine others
will put out Mademoiselle under the
guidance of the regular editors.
Last summer, Miss Connell was a
member of the Detroit News College
Board, which also entailed a trip to
New York, won through the same
article she sent to Mademoiselle.
Other Michigan women who have
been guest editors are Jeanne Crump,
'42, and Helen Barlett, '41.

Madge Evans Of Stage, Screen
Will Be Star Of 'Petticoat Fever'

If you happen to see an extremely
attractive redhead strolling along
State Street and feel the impulse to
say "haven't we met some place be-
fore?", that person is Madge Evans,
who is now in the throes of rehearsal
for "Petticoat Fever," which will open
open Monday, May 18, at the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre.
Miss Evans' career in the theatri-
cal world dates back to the day when
she was, literally, a "babe in her
mother's arms." Being a smiling,
healthy child she was chosen to ad-
vertise everything from milk to baby
Started At Five
Born in New York City, Miss Evans
had an excellent opportunity to "get
ahead" in her field of endeavor. The
William A. Brady movie company,
situated at Fort Lee, N.J., was in the
habit of choosing their actors and
actresses, for bit parts, from the pic-
ture collections of commercial con-
cerns. It was in just this manner at
the age of five that Miss Evans was
chosen for her first role in a picture
entitled "Sudden Riches."
She remained in New York, play-
ing in stage productions until, in
1932, she went to Hollywood under
contract to Metro Goldwyn Mayer.
While there she played in such pic-
tures as "Son of India," with Ramon

Navarro, "David Copperfield,"

The engagement of Ellen Jane
Thomssen, '42, to Thomas J. Hanson,
'43D, was announced at dinner
Wednesday at the Alpha Gamma
Delta house. Apple blossoms and li-
lacs decorated the table, and at each
place was a colonial corsage as a
Miss Thomssen, who is affiliated
with Alpha Gamma Delta, is the'
daughter of Mrs. Norman F. Thoms-
sen of Detroit, and Mr. Hanson isj
the son of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas H.
Hanson of Sault Ste. Marie. Mr.
Hanson is a member of Delta Sigma
Delta fraternity.

"Lover's Courageous" and "Picca-
dilly Jim," with Robert Montgomery.
Miss Evans is the wife of Sidney
Kingsley, playwright. It was in one
of his plays. "The World We Make,"
that she was last seen in Ann Arbor,
two years ago.
Mr. Kingsley is now in the Army,
having been inducted last year. They
are very devoted to each other and
Mrs. Kingsley arranges her engage-
ments to coincide with the territory
in which her husband is stationed.
Her next vehicle, after leaving Ann
Arbor, will be "Skylark," although all
of her contracts contain a clause
which states that she may change
them if her husband is moved to a
different locale.
Is Amateur Gardener
Mr. and Mrs. Kingsley own a farm
in New Jersey where they retire after
the grind of New York life. It is here
that Madge Evans has taken up the
hobby of amateur gardening. "Prac-
tically any spring afternoon, when I
am on vacation, you can find me with
a hoe in one hand-and a gardening
book in the other."
The feeling of an audience appears
to be quite an important factor in
the career of Miss Evans, for she
has chosen the stage as her favorite
means of "making a living." In addi-

Fund Is Given
By Panhellenic
To War Work
In concluding a year of successful
work Panhellenic Council brought
their activities to a close by voting to
use the funds saved during the sea-
son in some phase of war work, and
stating the rules for summer rushing.
Four large lawn umbrellas as well
as tables have been ordered for the
American Red Cross Station Hospital
at Fort Custer where convalescent
soldiers will receive the benefit of the
Council's decision.
In addition to this, three sets of
shuffleboard have been given to the
hospital, also for the use of those
soldiers well enough to be up and
around but not yet ready for active
service. Before these gifts are in-
stalled, it is planned that some land-
scaping will be done around the,
grounds, the cost of which will also
be shared by the Council.
Rushing Rules Announced
Virginia Morse, '43, president of
Panhellenic Board, has announced
the limiting rules for summer rush-
ing. In the first place no enter-
tainment which includes meals,
dances, or teas for more than three
prospective rushees, shall be given
by any sorority group unless mem-
bers of other Michigan Panhellenic
sororities are present.
Secondly, no entertainment may
be given throughout the spring or
summer vacations by actives, alum-
nae or patronesses for women who
are not in the University unless one
or more other sororities are repre-
sented. The Ann Arbor chapter of
any alumnae doing illegal summer
rushing will also be penalized upon
action of the Executive Committee.
Program For Fall Released
They program for intensive upper-
class rushing in the fall term has
also been released. Functions will
begin Saturday, Oct. 3 with invita-
tional open houses being held from
3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday will see
the same teas continued, but Mon-
day through Friday coffee will be
served to the rushees from 7:30 p.m.
to 9:30 p.m.
On Saturday, Oct. 10 each sorority
may hold either a luncheon or buffet
supper and on Sunday breakfasts
will be alternated with buffet sup-
pers. There will be no rushing at all
on Monday, Oct. 12, while the infor-
mal dinners on Ttiesday and Wednes-
day will conclude activities for the

If present plans are carried out, a1
civilian army of at least 25,000 wom-
en will be employed by the United
States armed forces to operate radio
locators of enemy planes and do oth-
er vital work in the field of radio.
This announcement came from the
radio section of the Office of Scien-
tific Research and Development in
Washington. It went on to explain
that the Navy also wants women
right now with college degrees, pref-
erably in physics, who also hold ama-
teur radio licenses.
College Women To Benefit
They will be started at once on a
salary of $2,000 a year either on ra-
dio locator work, in research labora-
tories, or in the development and
installation of radio communication
College women who hold degrees
in physics an'd/or electrical engi-
neering, but have no radio experi-
ence, will also be taken on as junior
physicists and junior engineers at
$2,000 a year. While women who
hold amateur radio licenses, but do
not have degrees, will be started at
once on radio communications fa-
cilities at $1,620 a year.
Army To Offer Jobs
The Signal Corps of the United
States Army will soon offer jobs to
women with similar qualifications.
It is supposed that women in this
division, after a four-months' course,
will obtain a commission equivalent
to those awarded men, and will see
active duty.
A prediction has been made that
the demand for technically trained
women will far exceed the supply
available now, or in the next few

not cease after the war. The elec-
tronic devices used to end the war
will be available for commercial pur-
poses. These devices, which are re-
stricted to war uses now, include
television, new radio methods of
communication, new uses of short
wave for commercial purposes, and
improvements in private sending'
sets. A great number of both men
and women will be needed after the
war to install and operate these new
devices in everyday life.
The field is further broadened by
the expansion of television and other
radio techniques. New methods will
require more and more technicians
so that the opportunities in this field
after the war are almost limitless.
