Business Ad School To Reoffer
Special Program for Women
Coeds Who Have Completed Four Terms
May Begin Training in Summer Session

Provided that enough eligible wom-
en students apply for admission. the
School of Business Administration
plans to reoffer the special training
program which will enable women
who have completed four terms of
under-graduate work (60 hours) to
receive two semesters of business
training beginning with the Summer
According to Prof. M. H. Water-
man, secretary of the business ad-
ministration school, approximately
fifteen women were admitted in
February. At the end of the current
term, however, a larger number of
women will be completing their soph-
omore year, and it is expected that
requests for admission to the special
training program will be more num-
As a result of current needs, wom-
en are now being sought for many oc-
cupations to which, because of cus-
tom, they could previously gain ad-
mission only in small numbers and
with great difficulty.
In the field of accounting, for ex-
ample, positions with public account-
ing firms' have traditionally been
men's prerogative. But now public ac-
counting firms are energetically seek-
ing women who have had some prep-
aration in that field.
The bar has also been lowered in
banks, where in many departments
women have been refused employ-
ment by sheer tradition. Of course,
secretarial!'work which has been a
principal business activity for women
is still available, but it is emphasized
that the range of opportunities open
to women is now much broader.
Upon completion of the two-term
program, a student will have basic in-
struction which will be immediately
useful in the following lines: person-

nel procedures, banking and finance,
business writing, office practice, mer-
chandising, accounting and statistics.
At the end of this two-term pro-
gram students may continue for two
more terms and complete the require-
ments for the degree of Bachelor of
Business Administration, or they may
drop out at that point to take a po-
sition in business, postponing com-
pletion of the degree until after the
immediate needs of the war have
been satisfied.
Women who have had more than
four terms of college preparation
may, in some cases, be granted ad-
vanced standing toward the degree.
Continuance of work in other schools
and colleges of the University after
the completion of the special business
training program may be followed, if
the student desires.
Professor Margaret Elliott has been
designated as social adviser to wom-
en in the School of Business Adminis-
tration, and further details may be
obtained by consulting her or Prof.
Waterman, 108 Tappan Hall.
Sigma Alpha Iota
To Hold Musicale
Sigma Alpha Iota will give a musi-
cale at 8:30 p.m. tomorrow at the,

narda Danford, Grad, and Rose Hull,!

plans to give several Brahms and
Wagner numbers. P0hyllis Gugino
'43SM, will play a Brahm's sonata on

Edwards, '43SM, on the piano.

Letters to the Editor
Editor's Note: In reference to the decision as to whether it is advisable for
women to attend the summer term, the following statements are presented.
Miss Ethel McCormick, social director of the League and chairman of
the Women's War program committee:
"Women students should hasten their graduation because the country's
need for them is so acute. This acceleration can be achieved without injury
to health if the thoughtful student schedules her time and does not take
on too many non-essentials."
Dr. Margaret Bell, head of the Physical Education Department for
"I do believe in the accelerated program. To win the war, we need
more highly trained specialists. Therefore, the sooner a specialized woman
finishes her course, the sooner she will be available.
"To carry this program successfully, I recommend: that you do every-
thing necessary to keep fit; that next you do your academic work intens-
ively; third, that you systematically contribute either to the voluntary war
work or to paid war work; and fourth, that you use your leisure time as a
University woman should, to cultural advantage. It is by the long steady
pull that victory will be achieved."
Charlotte Thompson, '43, president of the Women's League:
"Due to the vital need for college trained women, we can be of the
greatest service by finishing our college work as soon as possible. For
many it is difficult to decide whether to return to summer school or not.
However, when we see what real sacrifices the women of other countries
are making and what their sacrifices mean to the welfare of the world, we
should be more determined than ever to contribute our talents. Although
an accelerated program is an added strain, with proper regulation of our
living habits, we American women can do what others are doing all over
the world. Let us all determine then to make our most valuable contribu-
tion to the war effort by taking advantage of the speeded up program being

Aid Is Needed
In Soph Project
Volunteers To Phone Captains
Before Reporting for Work
In order to better allocate the
services of hospital volunteers, wom-
en students who have just signed
up for the project are requested by
the central committee to phone their
captain before starting work at the
The captains, all sophomores, are
different for each day of the week,
and include: for Monday Jane Fag-
gen, whose phone number is 2-2591;
Tuesday, Peggy Laubengayer, 9896;
Wednesday, Mickey Thielen, 2-3023,
and Thursday, Eleanor Webber,
2-3225. Margery Merriam, 2-2569, is
the captain for Friday; Joan Shuc-
kowsky, 4018, for Saturday; Natalie
Mattern, 2-56A8, for Sunday, and
Dorothy Pugsley, 3718, for nights.
Orientation is necessary before
any student may start work at the
hospital, but inasmuch as workers
are still needed,Natalie Mattern,
'45, chairman of the project, stated
that no coed should feel that she
may go through orientation and
then not be used. The next orienta-
tion lecture will be given at 3:15
p.m. Thursday in room 2432 at the
University Hospital.
At present all night service has
been filled with the exception of
Friday and Saturday evenings. All
coeds who are interested in working
mornings may contact Miss Walsh,
head of the volunteer service, at
2-2521. Aid is especially needed in
the operating room during these
hours, while there are still openings
to be filled in the children's ward on
Saturday morning.
