Cries Of 'Send Me A Real Nurse'
Silenced As Coeds Prove Efficient








They say you can get used to any-
thing-a truism born out by the fact
that no patient in either of the two
Ann Arbor hospitals is ever surprised
nowadays when he finds himself be-
ing attended by a saddle-shoed, be-
ribboned coed.
Such queries as, "You're not a Girl!
Scout, are' you? Heard they have
some working around here!" and "Do
nurses have new uniforms now?" or
"Send me a REAL nurse~!" have sub-
sided almost completely as coeds have#
proved their efficiency, and have,
taken a vital step toward becoming
an integral part of hospital routine..
Excerpts From Reports
Miss Katheryn Walsh, head of the
volunteer unit at the University Hos-
pital, disclosed the following excerpts
from this week's reports of the coed
Chenille ..$3.95, $4.95 $5.95
Cotton Quilted $.. ......4.95
Silk Quilted ..$7.95 to $15.00
Lisle Mesh Special ...at $1.15t

helpers. These reports, she declared,
are representative of all of the past
month's records: "The University vol-
unteers are doing beautifully
much better than most new ward
"We don't know how we managed
without them . . . they are improving
all the time. They have been espe-
cially valuable this week because of
the increased shortage of nurses."
"They have the initiative to actually
find jobs for themselves and yet
they're adaptable and will do exactly
as they're told." "They only have to
be told a thing once-learn so fast."
"Many girls have shown outstanding
ability and efficiency."
Patients Appreciate Attention
Miss Walsh further emphasized the
success of the Sophomore Service
which has organized coeds for vol-
unteer work at the University Hos-
"Two hundred and fourteen girls
have given a total of 2,483 hours to
hospital work so far. So you see what
a concrete help this project has been.
I can say, too, that I've had few of
the headaches I had planned on.
"Patients have told me over and
over again," she continued, "how
much they appreciate the University
women's attentions. The girls are so
attractive, on the whole,, and so anx-
ious to please, that patients look for-
ward to their visits. They can give
the patient the little attentions that
nurses are too busy to care for.
Miss Wanzeck, head of the volun-
teer group at St. Joseph's Hospital,
was equally enthusiastic in her praise
of the student workers. "The Univer-
sity women are so willing and anx-
ious to help whenever and wherever
needed. Their enthusiasm and con-
scientiousness are a pleasure to see.
I can't tell you how much we need
and are grateful for their services."

Women And The War,

Blitz efficiency, smooth tactfulness
and continual chuckle are character-
istics which make Josephine "Fitz"
Fitzpatrick, '44, popular as well as
effective in the administration of
her position as head of the women's
office of Civilian Volunteer Defense
on campus.
The latter is a placement service
which.operates under the War Coun-
cil in cooperation with the Man-
power Corps, and all the women's
class projects stem from it. Joseph-
ine's chief function is to act as mid-
dle woman between the Ann Arbor
women's branch of the OCVD and the
campus branch and to coordinate
University activities with theirs.
Amazing Versatility
The town organization indicates
what positions need filling and Jo
carries on from there. Thus she has
calls for everything from carrot
pickers to assistants for gas and fuel
rationing. These widely assorted po-
sitions give the college woman a
chance to show her much vaunted
versatility as well as putting her wish
to help with the war effort to prac-
tical application.
This women's placement service,
however,, did not originate this fall
when the Manpower Corps was
formed, but began operations last
February. At that time Jo began
placing University women in assorted
types of volunteer positions, which
included child care in the public
schools as well as typing and cler-
ical work.
Holds Four Other Jobs
"Fitz" is far from being the gimlet-
eyed individual who has come to be
the horrible prototype of all effi-
cient women. Her line of constant
quips and gags along with her eyes
of traditional Irish humor are irref-
son will play a medley of special
tunes. Moreover, the final elimina-
tion of the first annual Interfrater-
nity Pledge Sing will be held during
intermission of the dance.

utable proof that a gray personality
and capability are not synonomous.
Jo is not completely absorbed in
war work, however, but covers a lot
of ground in her extra-curricular ac-
tivities. She is a Ruthven tea group
chairman, president of Athena, mem-
ber of Wyvern, and rounds out her
war work by being equipment chair-
man for Senior Project. Last year
she was finance chairman of Sopho-
more Cabaret and worked on Thea-
