Ten Women
To Train for
Oil Industry
Ten women, ranging from second
semester sophomores to graduates,
have enrolled in the petroleum geol-
ogy course which opened for the first
time this semester, announced Prof.
Kenneth K. Landes, head of the ge-
ology department, yesterday.
Designed to train women for impor-
tant positions with oil - producing
companies, this course will compress
into twelve months the academic
wcrk in geology that formerly took
four and a half years.
Four women are from other depart-
ments of the University, and other
students have transfered from Flint
Junior College, Ohio State University,
Wheaton College, Ill., Eureka College,.,
Ill.. University of Arkansas, and Col- I
crado College. Colorado Springs.
Included in the curriculum are
courses in minerology, petroleum ge-
ology. palaeontology, physiography,
map and air photo interpretation, and
field work at Camp Davis. Instructors
of the various courses include Pro-
fessors A. J. Eardley, George M. Eh-
lers, George M. Stanley, Kenneth K.
Landes, and W. F. Ramsdell.
From the number of inquiries re-
ceived from women who were not able
to start the course this term, Prof.
Landes said that "it is highly prob-
able we will start a second group in
June and another in September."

some questions and answers of Interest
to every patriotie college woman
The drilling sounds so strenuous-l

1
',

Nonsense! The most beautiful women in America today
are the girls in khaki! Some calisthenics and drilling are
vital to general good health, discipline and tuned-up reflexes.
After a few weeks at Fort Des Moines, Daytona Beach or the
new Fort Oglethorpe training center you'll feel better than
ever in your life.

Maybe I wouldn't like the work?

n

People are happiest doing what they do well. Every effort
is made to place you where your service will count most
toward final Victory. You may have some latent talent that
will fill a particular need for work interesting and new to
women --such as repairing the famous secret bombsight,
rigging parachutes, operating the fascinating new electronic
devices - or driving an Army jeep over foreign terrain.

Then I have a chance toc nar-n soiiething new ?

First of all, is the WAA C really ieeded?

tR

Yes, indeed. And the list of WAAC duties grows constantly.
The training and experience you get in the WAAC may
equip you for many stimulating new careers opening up
for women.

,i

Emphatically yes! Already the President has authorized the
Corps to expand from 25,000 to 150,000. The Air Forces
and Signal Corps have asked for thousands of WAAC mem-
bers to help with vital duties. Both Ground Forces and
Services of Supply are asking for thousands more. Members
of the WAAC may be assigned to duty with the Army any-
where- some are already in Africa and England.

Excellent. The Corps is expanding rapidly and needs new
,; 4 officers, both commissioned and noncommissioned. Those
4 who join now have the best chances. All new officers now
come up through the ranks. If qualified, you may obtain a
commission in 12 ceeks after begining basic training.
What is the age range and other requirements?

The wvbole idea of thle VWAAC is to replace tratied soldiers
needed at the front. If American womcn pitch in now to help
our Armuy (as wvomen in Bitain, Russa and China do), we
can lastend Victory - and peace.

What (tuu my college eduieation contribute?

/'f~

College training is important equipmuent for many WAAC
duties too long to list. Cryptography, drafting, meteorology,
laboratory work,;Link trainer and glider instructing, for ex-
ample. If you are a senior you may enroll at once and be
placed on inactive duty until the school year ends. See your
WAAC faculty adviser for more details.

Very simple. You may join if you are a U. S. citizen, aged
21 to 44, inclusive, at least 5 feet tall and not over 6 feet,
in good health - regardless of race, color or creed. But the
Army needs you now-don't delay. Total War won't wait!
LingUistsaneeed. If you speak and write Spanish,
Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, French; German
or Italian, see your local Army recruiting office now! You
are needed for interpreting, cryptography, communications.
