Hillel To Have
At Mixer Today
Foundation Will Introduce Home
At Corner Of Hill, Haven Streets
With Dance For New Students
Hillel Foundation will combine a
mixer for new students with a house
.warming from 9:00 p. m. to midnight
today in its new quarters.
The Foundation has just moved to
a large twenty-room house on the
corner of Hill and Haven Streets and
has completely refurnished the house.
The dance will be held in the ball-
room, a spacious room which will be
used, later in the year, for such events
as lectures and meetings. The new
home also contains a completely
equipped music room which is avail-
able to students at all times.
A library, play room and several
study rooms and lounges are. also
ready for use at all times, and stu-
dents are welcome to avail themselves
of these facilities.
Grace Freudberg, '45, who is head
of the social committee for the Foun-
dation and chairman of the dance,
has stressed the fact that the dance
today is not a date affair. All unescor-
ted girls are urged to attend.
The informality of the football dec-
orations and of the recorded music
will provide all the guests with an'
opportunity to become acquainted
with the many advantages of Hillel's
new headquarters.
Other members of the committee,
Charlotte Kauffman, '43, Edith
Kohn, '45, Mildred Getzoff, '43, Bob
Warner, '43, and Louis Warner, '45,
promise that this, the Foundation's
first formal appearance in its new
home will be a real success.
The chaperones for the affair will
be Mr. and Mrs. Zwerdlin and Mr.
and Mrs. Kaufman, all of whom are
from Ann Arbor.
Quality Value, F i t
Mean Dress Value
To Careful Buyers
For most women shopping tripsI
are becoming fewer and farther be-
tween, for spare time and money are
now being given 100% to the war
effort. However, there comes a time1
when everyone needs a new dress or1
suit, and the inevitable tour of local
shops begins.
When you start out to buy clothes,
it is important to make thoughtful
and careful choices, for as likely asa
not, they will have to last for many
a month. The best dress to have in1
your wardrobe is one that you will
wear and enjoy the most.l
The first keynote to a "good buy"
is not p5rice but simplicity. However,
it's possible to be over-cautious and
conservative to the dull point. Moneyt
can't be put on both good material
and extra trinkets, so if you have a
limited income, the quality is by far
most important.
The next criterion of a good buy
is whether or not it fits well. If youI
are sure a dress really "does some-I
thing" for your face and figure it is
worth buying. Moreover, the fit at
the shoulder and waistline must be
good. However, an investment in goodt
alterations is often profitable..
If the fit of your dress is all right,
it is wise to look at the seams ands

Women With Scientific Training
Have War Work Opportunities

For 24th


On Sunday afternoon, from 5 p. m.
to 6 p. in., new Martha Cook residents
will be initiated into the household.
According to Mrs. Leona Diekema,
social director, there is an unusual
numnber of new girls. During this,
their twenty-fourth initiation, seven-
ty-one new residents will be welcomed
by the fifty-three old members.
Although many of the usual social
activities of the house have been cur-
tailed because of the war situation,
this ceremony is one of the customs
that will continue to be observed.
Ruth Ellen Thomas, '43, chairman,
Virginia, Capron, '43, house president,
Miss Sarah Rowe, house director, and
Mrs. Diekema will assist in the cere-
mony. During the program, Jane
Morley, '43, will sing a solo, accom-
panied by Phyllis Munger, '43.
Martha Cook's afternoon teas will
be held only during the winter months
"for the duration" and the social
committee is giving ten per cent of
its intake at all social functions to
the war effort.
make sure they are generous. Bound
or overcast armholes and small, nice
stitching also add to the wearing
value of any garment. Hand-made
buttonholes make a dress keep its
neat appearance for a longer period
of time.
Last, but not least, it is wise to
watch labels. Virgin wool is a posi-
tive good buy, but many new materi-
als are now on the market which will
wear just as well and be just as

War industries need university-
trained women. College students who
may be feeling that they are wasting
time at school while their contempor-
aries are filling shells and welding
planes should realize that their edu-
cation can fit them for many vital
war positions.
These jobs which add experience to
a prerequisite background of sound
training are not likely to have their
usefulness end with the war. One of
the wisest things a war career-minded
woman can do just now is to concen-
trate on scientific studies since the
demand for specialists in the many
scientific aspects of war industry is
tremendous. By the end of 1943 7,-
000,000 women must be added to the
staffs of war production plants if the
arming of the country is to continue
Preparation Makes Efficiency
The better a woman's preparation
for such work the more efficiently
can she help in this enormous effort.
Women trained in chemistry to any
extent are much needed in munitions
factories which have already em-
ployed many women chemists and
wish for more. Duties of the woman
For an extra dash to last year's
suit, hunt for a shiny seal, deer, or a
lounging dachshund to pin on your
lapel. You're sure to find one that
striktes your fancy for a minimum
price. They come in gray or dappled
brown plastic which adds an indi-
vidual touch.-,

chemist in a munitions plant consist
chiefly of analysis with some com-
pounding, spot-testing, research on
new products and tabulation. Pay
runs from $1500 to $2160 for most
workers, but those with M.A. or Ph.D.
degrees receive $3400 to $6000.
Physicists with training in research
will also find good openings in war
industry. They are needed for such
essential work as aircraft research.
making computations for ordnance
and shipbuilding engineers and doing
research on gases and projectiles. Pay
is from $1500 to $5000.
Opportunities In Math
Mathematicans have a variety of
opportunities. One year of college
math equips a woman to be an engin-
eering aide. Math majors can become
statisticians and well-salaried re-
search workers. In this field pay runs
from $1400 to $5000. Statistical work,
testing programs and figure work for
construction engineers are among the
duties of the wartime mathematical
Metallurgy presents possible em-
ployment to women with engineering
degrees. Pay averages around $1800.
Metallurgists conduct tests and assist
steel-mill smelter chemists.
Electrical research workers can be
employed by appliance manufactur-
ers and electrical equipment testing
Need For Doctors
Women doctors have never been
more needed than now when many
male physicians must leave civilian
posts to attend to the need of the
armed forces. They can obtan hospi-
tal residencies with $50 a month pay
or be contract surgeons at $2500 a
The way for a woman to obtain one
of these positions is to register with
the National Roster of Scientific and
Specialized Personnel in Washington.
She should also write to any firm
which may be located near her place
of residence to see what positions are
available. Her qualifications before
applying for work should be a college
degree with a background of mathe-
matics, dexterity in laboratory tech-
nique, patience, accuracy and keen
interest in the field she has selected.
For construction work she must have
a high production rate and in any
case she needs dependable health and
a steady nervous system.
War work for women combines the'
fulfillment of the urge to use one's
talents in the line of patriotic duty
and the practical advantages of bet-
ter-than-usual starting salaries in
more available positions than ever
before. Women who take up careers
in war production will be not only
materiallyhelping themselves but
also freeing men for fighting. Never
has there been more important and
valuable work for the scientifically-
trained woman.
WAA Names Gaskell
League House Head
At a meeting of the WAA Board
held at 4 p. m. yesterday at the
W.A.B., Jean Gaskill, '45, was ap-
pointed head of the league houses.
She is now living at Mrs. Maddy's
house and will represent the league
houses on the Assembly Board as
well as on the W.A.A. Board.
The Ann Arbor independent wom-
en also formed a volley ball team
which they will enter in the tourna-
ment on Oct. 12.

Another "must" in every girl's
wardrobe is a good, practical two-
piece suit such as the one shown
here. Its trim, simple lines lend a
neat, slenderizing appearance to
any lassie that might chance to slip
it on. The suit can be dressed up
by simply adding a flashy lapel pin
or donning a soft felt hat as seen
As an outfit for more sporty
wear a get-up of this kind can
hardly be outdone. Casual sweaters
or frilly blouses may be worn equal-
ly well with this all-round suit.
The comparatively narrow skirt
with its one lone pleat down the
center of the front is typical of
wartime styles.
The rich brown beaver coat
draped carelessly over the fitted
suit is especially smart with its
three-quarter length. A wrap of
this sort not only blends in well
with other colors but also looks
chic with all types of garb. It's a
smart looking outfit at any time
and place.
