For '43 Stated,
Laws Revised By Panhellenic
As Silence Period Approaches
With sorority women as well as
freshmen caught in the whirl of an-
ticipated rushing and with the pros-
pect of many new rules and, regula-
tions, the campus is about to go into
another period of "silence" between
independent freshman women and
War, priorities, and rationing have
stretched ;even into the realms of
rushing season, for food has been
strictly limited for the forthcoming
parties, Virginia Morse, '43, president
of Panhellenic, has announced. One
of the most outstanding of the
changes is the outlawing of formal
dinners, previously the climax of the
rushing season. This year informal
desserts will be held instead by all
houses from 7:30 to 9:30 Tuesday
and Wednesday, Feburary 23 and 24.
Another change, brought about by
gas rationing, will be a new system
of issuing tea invitations to the
freshmen. While invitations in the
past were delivered to dormitories by
each sorority, they will now be picked
up by the rushees in the League.
Definite arrangements for this will
be announced later.
Freshmen with a C average or bet-
ter may register for rushing from
Wednesday, February 10, to Monday,
February 15, at the Panhellenic booth
in the League. Both rushees and
affiliated women may gain any in-
formation about rushing at this booth
or may call Miss Jeannette Perry at
the Office of the Dean of Women.
There will be separate financial state-
nents for each sorority at the desk
in the League for freshmen who de-
sire this material.

Women's Glee
Club Will Sing
In Honor Show
Chosen to represent the entertain-j
ment talent of the University, thel
Women's Glee Club will be featured
at the annual "University Night"
program to be presented March 28 at
the Masonic Temple in Detroit.
The group has walked off with this
coveted honor purely by dint of its
own talent, displayed during the past
year at banquets, concerts, broad-
casts, and other campus functions.
Composed of 45 women, the glee
club is directed by Bill Sawyer who
anticipates "a busier season than ever
before" with preparations for the
Detroit appearance and with partici-
pation in weekly broadcasts over the
University broadcasting station.
The broadcasts, which began at
Thanksgiving, are presented in con-
junction with the Michigan Council
for Defense under the direction of
Dr. Joseph Maddy, and American
songs of all types are rendered in
five-part harmony by the group ev-
ery Saturday.
Director Sawyer wants to add male
voices to the ranks of the club this
semester, and all students who are
interested in joining are requested to
try out from 3 to 5 p.m. Feb. 9 in the
Kalamazoo Room at the League..
Second-semester freshmen who are
interested are also asked to bring
eligibility cards and try out from 2
to 4 p.m. Feb. 8.
on February 13, there must -be
no other contact between possible
rushees and sororities except in the
case of mothers and sisters who are
no longer active. No rushing is
allowed outside house premises and
there shall be no informal bidding.



Camera Financed Education
OfNow-Famed Potographer

"Necessity is the mother of inven-
tion," it has often been said, and
this assumption was made a reality
in the life of Margaret Bourke-White
when she turned to photography in
her senior year at Cornell University
in order to provide the necessary
funds to complete her course.
Miss Bourke-White, who will be
presented by the Oratorical Associa-
tion Feb. 4 at Hill Auditorium, dis-
covered that the photographs she had
taken of the university campus actu-
ally would sell. Therefore, after grad-
uation, she put away the test tubes
of her biology courses and turned to
her camera as a means of livelihood.
First 'Break' in N.Y.
Her first "break" came When she
was invited to come to New York by
Fortune to assume the duties of an
associate editor on its staff. She
opened her own commercial studio in
New York, and within a few years

had photographed everything of in-
terest in the United States, from coal
mines to construction work on the
rapidly rising New York skyscrapers.
Miss Bourke-White has the dis-
tinctioh of being the first non-Rus-
sian to make moving pictures in the
Soviet Union, and of making the first
broadcasts by a foreign correspon-
dent to come out of Russia in several'
The moving pictures were made on
one of her three consecutive trips to
the Soviet Union to record photo-
graphically the progress of the Five
Year Plan. It was on her experiences
during these visits that she based her
book, "Eyes on Russia."
Promises 'Inside Stories'
The broadcast occurred on the day
the war broke out in Russia. Miss
Bourke-White and her husband, Er-
skine Caldwell, were relaxing at the
Black Sea resort. Hearing the-news,
they rushed back to Moscow and
were pressed into service as corres-
While the topic of her lecture is
]Russian Women in the War," Miss
Bourke-White promises to include
several stories on the personalities of
the men who are guiding the world
today. These stories will be drawn
from "inside" information as she has
known them personally through her
'work as a photographer.

Few Contributions
To Charity'Fund
Infantile Paralysis Drive Nets
Only $700 in Ann Arbor
Contributions to the Infantile
Paralysis Drive show a deplorable
lack of response from the people of
Ann Arbor, according to Mrs. Otto
Laporte, representative of the com-
mittee, who reports that $700 is the
extent of the donations recorded at
the present time.
This figure includes the contribu-
tions collected by the March of
Dimes, the League, the special gifts
committee, and the State Savings
Bank. The collection boxes placed
in University buildings by Robert
Pohnson, '43, and Marion Thomp-
son, '45, will not be removed until
the drive ends on January 30, the
President's birthday.
Control of infantile paralysis, ac-
cording to Mrs. Otto Laporte, is now
more important than ever, for, with
the population massed in army camps
and in defense areas, an infantile
epidemic would spread alarmingly
unless curbed.
The shortage of doctors in civilian
life, she also points out, increases
the danger of infantile paralysis
should "the great crippler" once
get started. Sufficient funds must
be raised to alleviate the great suf-
fering it causes.
The important effort being made
to control this pernicious disease
through the present drive deserves
more attention and support from
Washtenaw County than it is now
receiving, Mrs. Laporte concluded.

Positions Await College Women
Trained As Secretaries, .Retailers

Jobs with a future! seems to be the
cry of a large group of women on
campus who are about ready to strike
out on their own. And there are two
.professions standing at the fore that
in turn want trained women to join
their ranks: secretarial and retailing
there are so many young women
who are interested in these fields,
and are sidetracked by the lure of
highly - paid temporary positions;
they thus bury their talents for pro-
fessions in which advancement and
success could be reached.
Demands Increasing
Secretarial schools are hearing the
requests for trained women increase
to demands, and in order to help wo-
men find jobs with a future as early
as next fall, they are accelerating
their training periods with special
courses opening in February.
Retailing schools are feceiving
their share of requests for trained
college women, too. With many posi-
tions in stores vacated for those out-
side with higher pay, the trained
Alt women interested in taking
standard Eed Cross courses next
semester in the following subjects:
nutrition, motor mechanics, home
nursing, and nurse's aide are re-
quested to sign up for these
courses in Miss McCormick's office
in the League. Red Cross certifi-
cates' are awarded to those who
successfully complete such courses.

woman has a chance to step into a
job that offers rapid advancement in-
to one with high pay.
Schools Accelerate Program
A prominent New York retailing
school is accelerating its training
program by opening its spring and
summer courses to current or recent
college graduates in February.'
Eligibility to placement in a full-
time position will come in the fall,
and any lacking courses by that time
can be picked up at evening classes
in the fall semester.
These schools represent the trend
of many retailing institutions that
are offering special programs to col-
lege women who want to be placed
in career positions before next winter.
Assembly Proceeds
Will Help Wounded
The funds originally collected by
Assembly last November for the pur-
chase of best-sellers for Camp Cus-
ter's reading room will be used in-
stead for a solarium for the wounded
who have come back to Custer from
Africa, Constance Gilbertson, '43SM,
announced yesterday.
Amounting to over $100, the fund
was collected in a campus book drive
that was pushed at the same time the
nation-wide drive was on. Because
the soldiers obtained plenty of books
from the national contributions, the
solarium was suggested instead.
Any money left over from this pro-
ject will go toward a radio.
