To Fit Wornen' Complsory PEW Will Be Next
For War Work Step If Voluntary Exercises Fail


Miss Ethel McCormick To Head
New Committee To Compile
Training Suggestions For Coeds
Action to fit war training for Uni-
versity of Michigan women students
to the positions which women can
best fill in the nation's war effort is
the objective of the newly-appointed
Committee on the Women's War Pro-
gram which is headed by Miss Ethel
A. McCormick, social director of the'
Michigan League.
Information is being compiled from
both government and business
sources regarding the positions which
women can fill in the war program.
This information is being checked
to disclose the training which can be
given by the University to best fill
these needs.
The new program is an expansion
of a plan which has been under way
at the University for some time. An
extensive survey has been made to
find out what war training courses
each woman student is taking or has
taken as well as the student's field of
major interest. The information thus
gained has made it possible to give
definite advice regarding courses
which will qualify each student for
positions in fields where war-created
personnel shortages exist.
Along with this preparedness pro-
ject, the voluntary program of physi-
cal fitness for women students has

The newly initiated physical fitness program for women seems to be
a flop as far as most coeds are concerned. The program was started for the
sole purpose of giving the women an out from PEW, since most of them
object to the idea of compulsory calisthenics. The idea of voluntary exer-
cises to take the place of PEW, provided that there was 100 percent partici-
pation, was a good one, but the way the program is going now, PEW is
inevitable by next semester.
When half the athletic managers on campus fail even to turn in
records of their house or dormitory's activity in this direction, and when
half the records that are turned in consist only of girls touching their
toes.twice and calling it calisthenics, the one possible conclusion is that
the women want PEW. If they don't, they are still pursuing the best
possible course to get it.
Nobody likes the idea of compulsion, but some form of physical pro-
gram is not only inevitable but necessary. This year women as well as men
are doing twice as much as ever before. The war has tossed any relaxation
periods women formerly may have had right out the window. Most of
them have, besides their regular classes, and ordinary extra-curricular ac-
tivities, some form of war work to do, such as helping at the hospital. This
demands physical endurance, and usually night classes in addition. Further-
more, due to the University's accelerated program and the shortened sem-
esters, more work is demanded in a smaller amount of time, which means
harder studying and less sleep.
At the rate she is going, the Michigan coed is going to be a complete
physical wreck, and she is doing little or nothing about it. In fact, by her
failure to make a voluntary program work, she is forcing the very thing
she doesn't want-compulsory calisthenics. -Jane Farrant

That old familiar cry, "Barbour
gym is never open, so how can we
play badminton?" is gone forever. No
longer can shuttlecock-crazed enthu-

a first class Slazenger racquet and a
box full of Blue Goose birds without
having a chance to coordinate the
two in fast and furious action.
Take your pick-Monday, Wed-

together, and the answer is badmin-

the open singles and doubles classes
begins at 8 p.m. Monday when the
feminine racquet wielders take over
to battle for campus honors.
Tournaments Sponsored.
Wednesdays provide a chance for
the women to show their male coun-
terparts which way the bird flies, for
mixed doubles matches can be ar-
ranged between 7:30 and 9:30 p.m.
Of course, there is no rule against
Clara and June playing then too, and
tournament matches can be racked
up with ease.
The Women's Badminton Club,
managed by Marjorie Giefel, '44,
meets at 5 p.m. every Friday, and
tournament matches are usually reel-

able for conflict with the badminton
