American Council On Education
Warns, 'Production Can't Wait'
Women students should be pre-
pared to be called from college at the
end of any semester if the manpower
situation becomes critical, according
to a bulletin published by the Ameri-
can Council on Education.
"Many"women still think in terms
of a leisurely four year course. Pro-
duction cannot wait! Under present
conditions, women should plan their
programs" so that they can most ef-
fectively utilize their education to fit
themselves into the. many necessary
and vital occupations.
War Work for All
Even though women may not ac-
tually be drafted into production at
present, "every able bodied woman
should sense the obligation to enter
sonie form of war service," the Ameri-
can Council states.
It is pointed out that a very large
number of women are continuing to
major in the arts and humanities.
"These are vital in the total cultural
pattern and will be preserved, but
only if the war is won. In 1942-43,
knowledge of the sciences, of mathe-
matics, and of social studies are vital-
ly important for the effective par-
ticipation of college women in the
war program and must temporarily
take first place."
Many people regard college stu-
dents as apathetic and selfish in their
attitude toward the war effort; these
people will be answered only by col-
lege women who are awake to the

yer's Orchestra when they play for the Union Formal to be held from

playing with the Union band since the beginning of the semester and is

Hillel To Hold
Today At Union
Just show your membership card
and you'll be admitted to the annual
Hillel mixer, to be held from 4 p. m. to
6 p. m. today in the Union Ballroom,
where records will provide the music
for general and special acquaintance
Those who have not yet enrolled
may purchase memberships at the
door. The money which would ordi-
narily have been spent on an orches-
tra will be donated to various war
agencies this year. A public address
system will bring the record music to
the ears of the dancers.
Those attending may come either
stag or with dates, but dates will be
the exception rather than the rule.
Special "mixer dances" have been
arranged to add to the fun, and there
will be many hostesses, whose duty
it will be to make introductions
among the students.
Arrangements for the affair are
being made by the co-chairmen of the
social committee, Grace Freudberg,
'45, and Harry Miller, '45, assisted by
committee members Mildred Getzoff,
'43, and Edith Kohn, '45.
At '42 Polls
WASHINGTON, Nov. 3.-- ()-
Women, of both the petticoat and
slacks variety, put up fewer candi-
dates but cut a much bigger figure
in the outcome of today's congres-
sional and state elections than in any
nation-wide balloting for years.
There were but 68 women candi-
dates in the national and state pic-
ture as compared with 92 in 1938 and
83 in 1940. But at the Democratic and
Republican National Headquarters it
was reported that women exerted a
greater influence in 1942 than at any
time since they obtained the vote in
Of the 31 women candidates for
Congress-7 Republicans, 5 Demo-
crats and 19 divided among minor
parties-two incumbents were in be-
fore the votes were counted.
Mrs. Margaret Smith, Republican,
was re-elected in the Maine election
in September, and her fellow-Repub-
lican, Mrs. Edith Nourse Rogers of
Massachusetts, who introduced the
bill creating the WAACS, was unop-
posed for reelection.
The dean of the petticoat law-
makers, Mrs. Mary T. Norton of New
Jersey, a Democrat, who has served
since 1925, sought another term, as
did two other House members: Mrs.
Frances Bolton (Rep.-Ohio) and Miss
Jessie Sumner (Rep.-Ill.).
The list of hopeful new candidates
for the House included Mrs. Dorothy
Kemp Roosevelt of Michigan, a Dem-
ocrat, divorced wife of the late G. Hall
Roosevelt, brother of Mrs. Franklin

By JANET VEENBOER
Trouping as quietly as possible down hospital corridors; listening in-
tently to lectures and directions of head nurses; stumbling through those
first grueling hours on a new job-such has been the life of the sophomore
women who have been working on their newly organized class project.
"It's interesting-and it makes me feel I'm really doing something," is
a typical remark from one of these volunteers. Coming back to school this
fall expecting to climb back into the security of their ivory towers, students
were just a bit startled to find the University pushing an all-out-for-war
effort to the nth degree.
But now, with only a little urging, Michigan women have caught the
spirit of the thing and are behind the University 100%. Soph Project is the
first large-scale work which has been attempted-and these girls are set-
ting high standards which are going to make it difficult for those class
projects which are to follow.
With lots of appliance to her job and with full cooperation of her com-
mittee, Natalie Mattern, chairman of the project, has turned her complete
attention these last two weeks to organizing this wholly unprecedented work.
Learning hospital routine, organizing duties, and orienting the volunteers,
recently have played a major part in the lives of the girls forming the cen-
With two weeks of work behind them the committee has formed a pro-
gram as follows: every day between forty and fifty girls will be working
under the leadership of one of the committee members, or captain. All vol-
unteers are under direct supervision of the head nurse of the floor or section
in which they are working. When the volunteer arrives, she signs in and
goes to her post. As she leaves she checks out, and thus a complete record
of the time she has contributed is kept.
"Orientation," which every girl had to go through, consisted of a two-
hour combined lecture and tour of the University Hospital. An education
in itself, this program succeeded in familiarizing the volunteers with hospital
routine and ethics. College, hospital, and student leaders are aiming towards
a high goal in carrying out this project, and it's up to the workers to main-
tain the standards.
So far they've done a wonderful job. Congratulations, stick to it, and
more power to you, Sophs.
And just to show that the sophomores aren't the only ones that have
been busy, approximately $200 has-been taken in during the last two weeks
from the sale of defense stamps in the booth at N. University and State Sts.
With war work looming so large in every person's life-or at least we
hope it does-a committee of Volunteer Registration for Emergency Defense
has been organized under the leadership of Jo Fitzpatrick.
Since there has been some misunderstanding about signing up for the
war training courses, with some women even registering under the Man-
power Corps and getting away with it, the committee wishes to emphasize
that all registration for volunteer service either has or will take place at
the various class projects which are in the offing.
