flv Sweet 6Oe Ceera
By NANCY GROBERG
Sometthnhg'has to be done about Brooklyn. It's getting to the point now
where someone from Brooklyn isn't even safe in Manhattan. Certain New
York department stores in particular have it in for Brooklynites-they must
train their salesgirls to raise their eyebrows like that when, upon asking
for your address, they learn the inevitable truth.
Well, anyhow, if people from Brooklyn can't feel safe within the limits
of their own city, imagine how they must feel out here, confronted by the
firm Midwestern attitude. It is to make conditions less dangerous for the
Michigan student who must write Brooklyn down on all the records that I
here strive. I'm going to do my best-but I know how much it will help.
Some Say -'lottul!'
Maybe we should start with something simple like "Brooklyn is a place
in New York!' No, that won't do-Let's say that Brooklyn is one of New
York's five boroughs and leave it at that. Now with this fundamental fact
established we can become more confusing-like Brooklyn. Contrary to
popular -opinion, Brooklynites do not say "toity-toid" for thirty-third or
"woild" for world or "goil" for girl. They say "thayty-thayd" for thirty-
third and "wayld" for world and "gayl" for girl. There is a Ine distinction
there which must not be overlooked. (Imagine how confu .mg it would be
if everyone thought that "ay" sounded lil-e "oi" and vice-versa).
My friends tell me that you can track a Brooklynite down by his
double "t"-it's always glottal. What they mean is that I say "bottul"
for bottle, whereas they say "boddle." Well, it hardly seems fair to blame
Brooklyn just because its mispronunciation disagrees with their mis-
pronunciation. Besides,'Brooklyn wouldn't be Brooklyn if -people didn't
I had a Latin teacher once-in high school-who used to speak in the
same poisonous tones about "the natives" as we do when we mention the
people who get "E" in Hygiene 101. By "the natives", of course, he meant
us-the Dddger fans, the glottal t'ers, the r-dropping, r-adding Brooklyr'tes.
Of course, by the time a child reaches high school in Brooklyn, he b s be-
come calloused to that sort of thing-so we let him live. But I don't think
he would have lasted very long in the Bronx.
Where O0il-Is 'Er'
Well, it's luite a place-country and city all mixed up* into Brooklyn.
One minute, maybe sitting on the porch some spring evening, you refuse
to believe that New York City proper is only a half hour away by subway.
Then the Brooklyn College night school crowd gets out and you believe it
If circumstances really demanded it you could probably divide Brooklyn
up into a fixed number of crowds. (Please note: I said crowds not gangs.)
There's the Crown Heights crowd (sometimes known as the Eastern Park-
way crowd), the Bay Ridge crowd, the Flatbush crowd.
You might also divide Brooklyn up in terms of recreational activities.
There's the mah-jong division, the bridge division, the poker division, and
lately, the run -around-getting-yourself-involved-in-defense-activities divi-
sion. I might add that,'membership in one division does not exclude you
from membership in any of the others.
About once in the course of every year a Brooklynite commits the un-
pardonable sin and moves to New York. This process is usually brought
about by the uplifted eyebrows in department stores which I mentioned
before. Sometimes, however, there is another reason, like "John's business,
you know," or Tommy's flunking out of every high school in Brooklyn. If
the latter is the one, no definite excuses need be given because everyone
Well, there it is-I know it won't help. My friends will still go on ex-
ploiting my glottal t's, and people will still laugh at the sure thing in the
movies-a crack about Brooklyn. I don't care-I seen my duty, etc., etc.,
etc. Just one last joint, though-As far as we know, and according to au-
thorities, Brooklyn will not secede from the Union.
Education Program Speeded Up
To Prepare Students for Duty
There are approximately 1,300
schools of nursing In the United
States, and more than ninety per
cent of these are still owned and op-
erated by hospitals. The others,
known as "collegiate schools," have
various kinds of connections with
colleges and universities.
Nursing education is young as com-
pared with professional education in
other fields such as medicine and
law, and until recent y has been cen-
tered in hospitais, en -;irely outside of
the national system f education.
Nurses Urgently Needed
According to the modern concep-
tion of professional education, the
majority of nursing schools have not
yet attained full professional status,
yet about 80 nursing education pr-
grams leading to degrees are now re-
ported, and these numbers are always
Because of the urgent need for
nurses, the programs of many nurs-
ing schools are being accelerated so
that, if necessary, their students may
be 'ready for service in military hos-
pitals in this country or for civilian
service, in less than the usual three
Like College Life
However, life in nursing school is
not unlike life in college. The first
four to six months in nursing school
constitute the pre-clinical period dur-
ing which time the schedule is made
up largely of lectures, laboratory
work, demonstrations and periods of
practicing nursing procedures.
Social activities arepan important

Sorority Women Are Respondin
To 'Take Soldier to Panhel Ball'
By CAROL COTHRAN
"Take a soldier to Panhell Ball" is
a suggestion that is motivating a re-!
sounding response from sorority wo-
men on campus, for no less than 100
coeds have signed up to treat the
same number of men in uniform to
their annual formal, announces Mary
Lee Grossman. '45, publicity chair-
man for the Ball Committee.
The Ball, scheduled for Saturday.
March 27, will donate its proceeds
to defense drives, and the women who
are taking soldiers stationed on cam-
pus are contributing directly to the
Miss Grossman adds that the ma-
jority of the women who are signed
up feel not only that they will enjoy
the dance, but also that they will be
giving to sources that will help their
own men in the armed forces.
A date bureau, headed by Peggy
Ross, '43, provides the means for ar-
ranging the dates with soldiers on
campus. A list is available at the
League for women to sign their names
and state their heights and a similar
list is posted for the men in the bar-
The bureau then compares the lists
and matches are made according to
the heights of the persons as stated.
But the bureau's job does not stop
there. Coke dates are arranged so
that the "matches" may meet and
plan beforehand for their date on
Women who want to join the ranks
of those who are already signed to
accompany men in uniform to the
Ball should get in touch with Miss
Ross as soon as possible.
The Ball will feature the music of
Leroy Smith, colored orchestra leader
and violinist who has played for other
dance events on campus in the past.
Door prizes will be offered in the
form of war stamp books in $10, $8
and $5 denominations.
In keeping further with the all-
out-for-defense project, there will be
no decorations or programs at the
dance. And, as customary at past
Panhellenic Balls, there will be no
corsages worn this year.

now in the throes of a hat designing
contest. So* far, they contend, there
is nothing on the market in the line
of attractive protective headgear-it
seems that top- notch milliners have
been designing smart but impractical
hats up to now. -
"Girls get their hair caught in ma-
chinery for lack of protective head-
gear," Molly Eisenstat, chairman of
the woman's division, United Auto-
mobile Workers (CIO) Local 400,
said. "Our hat must not have any
frills, bows, or: visors-4hey're dan-
gerous-but-it must be attractive too,
for after all we're only human."
Turbans, about the best to turn up
yet, are not favored by many because
they are too severe, according to,
