Big Event of Social Season;
Name Committee Divisions
April 9 has been named as the date
of "M-Hop," the Frosh-Soph Ball,
which will be held from 9 p.m. to 12
midnight in the ballroom of the Un-
ion, and will probably be the last all-
campus dance to be sanctioned by
the University this semester, accord-
ing to the central committee.
"Michigan Memories" will be the
theme of the dance, as the freshmen
and sophomores will attempt to pre-
sent to those attending the dance the
customs and traditions most typical
of life on the Michigan campus.
The theme has been chosen with
the purpose of leaving with those
Michigan men who are about to enter
the service a picture of their college
days. As a swan song to all-campus
Michigan dances, those who hope to
remain here will also appreciate this
pertinent theme.
The dance will be headed by co-
chairmen Stan Wallace, '45, and
Edna Sott, '46. Other members of
the central committee include Elea-
nor MacLaughlin, '46, and Rosemary
Klein, '46, patrons; Allen Daskal,
'46E, and Harry Scott, '45, publicity;{
and Joseph Warner, '46E, and Don
Granger, '45, tickets. In charge of
programs are Larry Loftus, '45, and
Ruth Maloney, '45.-
. In former years the freshman andI
sophomore classes have held separate
dances, and this year they are com-
bining their efforts in order to cutt
down on expense And to make the
affair a bigger even than ever. t
The newly elected officers of the
Sigma Chi fraternity for the springt
term are William Burke, '43E, presi-G
dent; Frederick Metzger, '43, vice-i
president, and William Kopcke, '43,
Contestants in the WAA Inter-
house Table Tennis Tournament
must play off their matches in

Letters to the Editor
I LIKED your comments in The Daily yesterday regarding the plans
that women should be making to speed completion of their educa-
tional programs.
In the field of business, with which I am most familiar, women
are badly needed, not only in war industries directly, but also in the
many essential civilian occupations from which men are being with-
drawn. However, the need is not just for women in general, it is for
women with specific skills and training.
At its meeting on March 9, the Executive Committee of the School
of Business Administration authorized the reoffering of our special j
training program for women beginning with the Summer Term,
provided a sufficient number of eligible women students present
themselves for admission.
ABOUT fifteen women were admitted to this School in February
from the limited number who were eligible at the beginning of
the Spring Term. At the end of the current term a considerably larger
number of women will be completing their sophomore year, and many
of those should have the aptitudes and interest which would adapt
them to effective work in the business field.
- M. H. Waterman,
Professor of Finance and
Secretary of the School

Bus. Ad. School
Equips Women
Now is the time for all women
trained in business administration
to come to the aid of industry. The
School of Business Administration
offers two business courses to equip
women to fill the numerous positions
Special advisory assistance to wo-
men interested in the program is giv-
en by Professor Margaret Elliott.
By a special arrangement, stu-
dents may take two years of business
training at the end of which they
may go into industry.

Practice Methods
Tried, But Not True
A class in differential equations
received a surprise recently when
Prof. Earl D. Rainville of the mathe-
matics department announced that
the method he had been teaching
them all semester was entirely wrong
and that they would have to begin
the semester's work all over again.
Prof. Rainville had been teaching
a tricky method of solution for fif-
teen years, and he had never run
across a problem it wouldn't solve
until now.

the Captain Jinks and other equally
engaging arrangements.

affair of its kind to be sponsored by
these five honor societies as a group.

All proceeds from the dance will
