Weaknesses In College Women's Training

At a conference of deans at North-
western University, Dean Alice Lloyd
challenged the type of training of-
fered college women throughout the
According to the New York Times,
Dean Lloyd declared that women had
not been encouraged to take mathe-
matics, engineering, and other tech-
nical subjects so vital today and "col-
leges were remiss in not providing
adequate character training . .",
charges which brought forth a chorus
of contradictions from heads of wom-
en's colleges throughout the country
who declared that Dean Lloyd had
been unfair in her sweeping criti-
Some Ed'ucators Disagree
These educators maintained that
college women have arisen to thetest
of the times; in fact, they have done
far more than was expected of them.
"It is pointed out that today thou-
sands of college graduates are step-
ping into war work, and within a
short time they prove highly com-
In answer to these criticisms,Dean
Lloyd explained her stand on the is-

sue in a letter to the education edi-
tor of the Times:
"I said what I firmly believe: that
the war and its demands upon wom-
en have revealed' to us some of the
errors in the education of our wom-
en. I pointed to. the very small pro-
portion of women with mathematical
and scientific training and said that
many young women with aptitude for
this training had not been encour-
aged by their academic advisors to
go into these fields" . . . fields which
were highly important in the train-
ing of the WAVE and WAAC units.
Dean Supports Statements
Dean Lloyd emphatically denied
that these criticisms were at any time
leveled at women's colleges. She went
on to explain that until the war she
had never felt the need to encourage
women to go into highly technical

and scientific fields. But with the
demands of war work, women would
have been more capable of handling
scientific training if they had been
encouraged to take mathematics
and physics.
"It is my contention that we have
not yet demanded of our young col-
lege woman the best of which she is
capable. Neither intellectually, voca-
tionally, nor in community leader-
ship has she had the significance
that she should have.
"It is because I believe in her po-
tential power and ability that I now
say that this is partly the fault of her
school and college.
"I believe also that if education is
to be dynamic and not static, it
should not be offended by honest
and sincere criticism," Dean Lloyd

Public Warned About Rumors By OWI

WASHINGTON-(p)-The Office of
War Information called on every
American today to help win the war
"by toughening his mind and ears" to
sensational rumors.
Here are the rules OWI suggests:
1. Never repeat a rumor.
2. Do not repeat a rumor verbally
even to deny it.

3. If you know the facts which can
spike a rumor, cite the facts prompt-
4. If you don't knoW the facts
which can stop a rumor, ask the
rumor-teller where he got his facts.
5. Don't give a rumor the benefit
of any doubt.

The wedding of Dorotiiy Roth, '41,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles
Roth of South Bend, Ind., and Leon-
ard Philip Silk, son of Mr. and Mrs.
J. I. Silk of Detroit took place recently
in South Bend.
Miss Roth took part in JGP and
Frosh Project while a student at the
University. She was also a member
of Assembly Board. The couple are
now living in South Bend.


A special rehearsal of the Men's
Varsity Glee Club will be held at
'7:30 p.m. today in Hill Auditorium
before the Varsity Nfght Conicert.


Now that the sophomore women are doing a Florence Nightingale, the
juniiors have taken up hawking at football games. Although it may seem
far afield from any war work, the JGP committee under the leadership of
Marcia Zimmerman has found that there's more than one way to skin the
proverbial pig. And to prove that the girls know what they're doing, they
have reported $19.15 collected from selling what are now known as "War-
sages" at Saturday's game, where loyal supporters sported real "victory"
But what's most important-a grand total of $1,694.15 has been
taken in by the juniors-who aren't by any means letting up on ideas for
future sales. With Santa's sleigh bells practically jingling in our ears,
YGP sutggests that we make this a truly patriotic Christmas, and Helen
Garrels, publicity chairman, adds that this year's holiday motto should
be, "A Defense Stamp in Every Package."

It will be in the tropical rains of the Solomons, the dry heat of North
Africa, or among the winter snows of Russia that the war work of the
women in the University of Michigan is first felt, for the Surgical Dressing
Unit has already sent' 500 bandages direct to some battlefront. Made up,
wrapped, and sterilized here in Ann Arbor, the dressings prepared on this
project sponsored by the seniors were checked and rechecked before being
sent on their way to some distant country.
Indirectly related to the senior project is the First Aid course, in which
college women are learning the right technique of applying the dressings
which they are making. The cartoons of first aiders won't seem quite so
funny to the male element when the girls start cornering them with four-
tailed bandages in hand and gleams in their eyes.
Altogether nineteen sororities are participating in the program of
first aid courses offered by the University. The Pi Phi's are at the head
of the class with 23 girls enrolled, although there is a total of 285
women who are now cramming for bluebooks on cuts and bruises as
well as history and philosophy.
Quiet hoursare becoming more than just a name in women's residences
as the University continues to stress the physical fitness program. Although
as yet we can't quite claim to be able to hear a pin drop in any of the various
halls, houses are taking definite steps to maintain reasonable silence. At the
Alpha Chi Omega house proctors are chosen for each floor and a system
of demerits has threatened the girls with a penalty for too much noise. It's
all part of defense, and cooperation in this is as important as the most
active project on campus.

Dr. and Mrs. Raleigh Schorling of
Ann Arbor have announced the en-
gagement and approaching marriage
of their daughter, Ruth Mary, '39, to
Robert Nelson Rickard of New York
City and California.
Miss Schorling attended Swarth-
more College in Pennsylvania before
attending the University here, where
she received both her bachelor's and
master'sdegrees. She is a member of
Phi Beta Kappa, Phi Kappa Phi, and
Pi Lambda Theta honor societies.
Mr. Rickard is a graduate of the
University of Southern California and
is now studying at the New York
Medical College. The wedding will
take place December 21.

Sam Houston, Tex. and Capt. Fred-
erick V. Harris, son of Mr. and Mrs.
Emory S. Harris of West Palm Beach,
Fla., were wed recently in the post
chapel at Fort Sam Houston, Tex.
Mrs. Harris was president of her

member of Wyvern and Scroll. She

mittee of the League and Frosh Pro-
Marjorie High, '39, daughter of Mr.

tre Arts Committee while a student
at the University.
