Date Pushed Ahead
The annual Ball, in former years
held in spring, has been pushed ahead
this year, because many of the ad-
vance corps men are graduating sen-
iors. As it is possible that some basic
students may leave at the end of this
semester, also, the dance will provide
a last get-together and a last chance
to relax before exams for many of the
members of the two military reserve

Ten whole days to relax'--and most of us need every single minute of
them. That doesn't mean we should sleep twelve hours a day, however, and
then come back feeling worse than ever. Seems its been an old custom
around here to come back so completely relaxed that eight hours sleep isn't
adequate for about a week after vacation, and we all crawl around campus
looking'like dead pigeons.
"We're getting a vacation during wartime, and that's plenty to be
thankful for. Why not keep a regular schedule this time. Get the right
amount of sleep and refuse third helpings, so help me.
Join a bandage-making unit and make it a regular -habit, or set a new
all-time record for the knitting of one- of those large-sized' army sweaters
or read that book you've been pretending you know for years now or write
six letters a day to the various and sundry in the armed forces. Take your
choice, but do something more than just sleeping, and gurgling eggnogs.
Now that we've taken those preliminary kinks out, let's not slip back
into the "flabby bag" stage. Take out ten minutes before bedtime stories
and do the frog, the airplane or the stretcher. We assume that you know
those are the names of some of the Voluntary Physical Fitness exercises.
So take a suggestion for a New Year's resolution and come back to
campus minus that Christmas extra poundage.

Credit should be given to two, athletic managers, whom we must admit
are practically mathematical geniuses. Deserving the taps on the back are
Frances Goldberg of Jordan Hall and Ruth Edberg of Helen Newberry, who
handed in really complete reports on their respective house's participation,
Including their percentage for the week.

More good news is in order. We hear that all by their lonesomes, many
of the Ann Arbor coeds are going through a stiff workout every night. That's
all right there, gals.
* * * *
In slacks and shorts about 90 leaders and athletic managers turned
out for the third meeting of the Physical Fitness program last week. Vehe-
ment speeches were given by various members of the WAA Board concern-
ing the success of the program and the factors of diet and sleep along with
On the sidelines were Mr. Clark Tibbetts, executive director of the War
Board, Dean Alice Lloyd, Miss Ethel McCormick and Char Thompson. Com-
menting on the program, Miss McCormick said, "It was interesting and the
turnout was impressive. I was especially glad to hear the talks on nutrition
and sleep which the Board members composed themselves."
Nothing can stop the Army Air Corps or the WAA, not even New Year's.
Next leadership meeting will be on Jan. 1, 1943, and we'll knock the "hang-
over" out of you. So see you then and Merry Xmas.

Outfits Become
With Smart Bag
They say clothes make the man.
We might add that a good-looking
purse is necessary for the well-
dressed woman. Purses come in al
shapes, sizes, and colors. to fit any
There's the slick domoc envelope
for sporty tweeds and just big enough
to carry the money you need for that
shopping excursion. Or maybe you
prefer a neat little' change purse.
How about the hand-woven Chimayo
zipper handbag in a plain color or
in Indian patterns?
There are any number of bags to
go with the afternoon or dinner dress.
You will surely like the embroidered
cord effects, the virgin wool broad-
cloth, and , the lustrous cord, hand-
crocheted purses that are being
shown so much this year. Equally
smart-looking are the large soft
4eather bags and the ever-popular
zipper top bengaline purses trimmed
with plastic rings.
Td match your fur coats and cloth
coats as well; there's nothing like the
double-duty muff bag. It holds so
much and keeps your hands from
being exposed to winter's mighty
blasts. You can't have too :mtich of
a good thing, the ancient proverb
says, and this time we suggest the
classic envelope purse of genuine Ca-
nadian boot-leather.

Business World Calls Women
To Fill Administrative Positions

The calls for women to fill office
positions heretofore held by men are
increasing to shouts as "business is
feeling the pinch of the draft," de-
clares Prof. Merwin Waterman, pro-
fessor of finance and secretary of the
School of Business Administration.
Public accountants, bank tellers,
,personnel managers, and department
store junior executives are only a
few of the jobs that are open to
trained feminine applicants.
Not to be confused with secretarial
positions, these vacancies are of the
business administrative kind; the
ones into. which the men graduates
step after completing the two-year
course offered in the school of bus-
Advancement Is Possible
"But what about after the war?" is
the obvious query; "Will the women
be required to give up their positions
to the returning male population?"
To this Professor Waterman answers
a definite, "Certainly not! As in the
last war, women will have their feet
in the doors of business. Although
many young women will be filling
these jobs as a stopgap until mar-
riage, there are those who will intend
to make the work a career. If they
are conscientious and execute their
work well, there is no reason why

they should be forced to give it up at
that time."j
The expression, "women will have
their feet in the doors of business,"
is explained by Professor Waterman
to mean that after the present war,
as after World War I, the female of
the species will occupy more and
more positions-in the business world,
formerly held by men. Capable, con-
scientious womep are no longer to be
restricted from advancement to of-
fices of the executive nature.
Coed Enrollment Doubled
The enrollment at Tappan Hall this
semester has it that the women stu-
dent body has more than doubled that
of last year and that the coeds are
adding up to a neat 10%' of the en-
tire enrollment. This should be an
indication that university women who
are interested in business positions
with salaries equalling those of their
masculine predecessors are realizing,
the opportunities in training for the
Two years, or four semesters, of
business administration instruction
will prepare the enrollee ideally for
these jobs, but the demand for
trained women is becoming so urgent
that employers are accepting even
those who have taken only one year
of instruction and have received "the
tools of business," as Professor Wat-
erman describes it.'
