Student Cabbies
Sufer At Every
I Turn 'En Route'


Heroic Russian






"Otkay, lady. Show

me how to get

A student cab-driver is talking to
his passenger. While waiting for fall
classes to begin, he is picking up a
little extra money during the hot-
weather season. But the cab-driver
unfortunately isn't exactly "big-
time"-he doesn't know Ann Arbor"
beyond Angell Hall.
iFe has been cruising down State
Street for the last hour, has breathed
his fenders between two cars with-
out scraping much of the paint off
and he is pleased with himself.
A lady waves her handkerchief at
him from a corner and he pulls over.
She gets in arid asks him to take her
to a street that isn't on the map he
carries. So he says:
"Okay, lady. Show me how to get
Be Nonchalant}
This is just one of the problems theI
student cab-driver must solve.
"Once your passenger sees you're l
afraid of his double chins," the stu-
dent cab-driver confided to us, "he
orders you around like a poodle on a
leash. If you ain't nonchalant, you
don't belong in the cab business."
"What about tips?" we asked our
"Cinch," he said. "You gotta give
'em the bell-boy look sometimes and
study the polish off your shoes, but
most of the people will tip if you let.
'er talk to you."
"How's that?" we asked.
"Most people are lonely, believe it
or Ripley," he said. "Look at it this
way. They been working all day and
the boss had a fight with his wife
last night. Or they been riding a hot
train for ten hours. Put yourself in*
their place. Wouldn't you be lonely
We admitted he had something

Coeds Given Chance To Show New Fall

Hawkers with their pennants and
"Mums" in front of the Union, theI
crisp tang of an autumn day, crowds
of fans thronging Ann Arbor, stu-
dents cutting their Saturday classes
to entertain friends and family for
the week-end-it all adds up to foot-
ball season at Michigan, the one tithe
of the year when every coed has a
chance to show off her new fall ward-

College Coeds
For War Work
Classes In First Aid, Home
Nursing, Typewriting, Braille,
Child Care Will Be Offered
University of Michigan women will
have ample opportunity to "do their
bit" for America's defense this fall.
Continuing the already well-estab-
lished defense courses for women,
Miss Ethel McCormick, Social Direc-
tor of the League, announced that
classes in first aid, home nursing,
typewriting, motor mechanics, nutri-
tion, child care, Braille, and nursing
aid will again be offered this fall.
There are three types of first aid
classes: standard, advanced, and in-
structor. The principal aim of the
standard first aid course is to pro-
vide instruction for immediate intel-
ligent care of the injured in case of
an emergency. The ten class meet-
ings of two hours each include lec-
tures, demonstration, and practice.
The home nursing course offers in-
formation concerning home and
community hygiene as well as prac-
tical instruction in personal and fam-
ily health, the care of infants and
small children, and the care of the
sick under home conditions.
Typists Needed
Because a lack of stenographers is
one of the primary problems of the
defense effort, typewriting classes
are also listed among the defense
courses for women. Class meetings of
11/ hours each, are held twice a week
for the entire semester.
Motor mechanics is one of the
more technical and unusual courses
offered under the defense program.
Class work includes instruction in
the general mechanics of a car,
changing a tire without lifting, tak-
ing a carburetor apart, and learning
how to drive a truck. Students in the
class are given working demonstra-
tions on the mechanics of an auto-
mobile as well as instruction in emer-
gency repairs.
Classes in nutrition present facts
on food needs and food values and
offer information on the newer prin-
ciples of food preparation. The prin-
cipal aims of this course are the
training of lay volunteers to assist
in the national nutrition program
through community activities, and
in family and group feeding under
emergency conditions.
Defense Need
The"-course in child care is an es-
sential part of defense and the need
for centers to care for children be-
comes more acute as more mothers
are engaged in defense work. These
classes include a study of child de-
velopment,cnursery school methods,
parent education, nutrition and
health education.
Another unusual course offered as
a part of the defense program for
women is Braille. This course aids in
preparing students to transcribe, du-
plicate, bind books in Braille, read to
the blind, and to teach them the
Braille system.
The Nurse's Aide course offers an
opportunity to upperclass women in
the University by using them as as-
sistants in nursing responsibilities in
the hospital.
No credit is offered for any of these
courses. Registration will be held in
the Social Director's Office, Michigan

of the kind of excitement that fresh-
men dream about and that alumni
long for, and the right clothes will
go far towards naking the season the
most successful in your college career.
Luncheons, teas, buffet suppers, dan-
ces and even picnics preceding and
following the games make Saturday
the fullest day of the week.
With the opening game so early in
the year and the possibility of some
remaining weeks of warm weather,
college women will be flaunting their
newest suits for awhile yet. For that
special date when your Ensign or
Lieutenant comes in for a week-end
leave, nothing less than a dressy suit
with all the trimmings, hat, gloves,
and bag, will do. He'll be proud then
to introduce you to all his old "bud-
dies" who have somehow managed to
get just one more deferment and re-
main in the University.
The college boys arena so particu-
lar; a more casual, sporty suit com-
bined with spectators and a hat, if
you are in the mood for one, will sat-
isfy them. If you are footsore from

summer, saddle shoes are very much
in order. The hike out to the stadium
I no small one, and a good percent-
age of University women sacrifice
beauty for comfort and wear their
oldest, most comfortable walking
shoes. Sweaters and skirts will also
be seen in abundance, so the problem

of "what to wear" shouldn't be hard
to answer.
As time goes on and the crisp days
turn into blustery ones, the question
becomes not what to wear, but how
to keep warm. Those of you with fur
coats are fortunate, for, thrown over
a suit or casual wool dress, nothing
could be better. With or without a
hat, in saddle shoes or pumps, you
can be sure you will be classed among
the well-dressed women.
Of course there will come that
rainy week-end when you wake up
on Saturday morning and groan with
despair. In that case, anything goes,

boots will definitely be the thing to

!For Women Planned;
Similar To PEM
With the recognition of the need
for healthy young women in this per-
iod of war, plans are now being made
to expand the schedule of the Physi-
cal Education department for women
to include a physical hardening pro-
gram of exercises similar to PEM of-
fered to men.
First step toward this will be the
devotion of part of the regular re-
quired physical education classes to
the hardening program. For exam-
ple; part of the hour will be spent in
ordinary archery, golf or tennis in-
struction, while for the remaining
time those classes will meet together
for mass exercises.
It is expected that later in the
school year a voluntary hardening
program will be formed especially for
women on campus who have already
completed their physical education
With their aim, not to build mus-
cle but to increase stamina and abil-
ity, the Physical Education depart-
ment will require all incoming fresh-
men to fulfill their standards for
All women who enter with less than
two years' college experience on their
record must complete this required
amount of physical education before
graduation. For this work one of the
finest physical education departments
in the country is at their disposal.
