terday at a meeting of the University
Women's House Presidents' Associ-

by the University through the Uni-

Must Have Full Cooperation
Dean Alice C. Lloyd stressed to the
house presidents the importance of
every student taking part in the
testing program. She explained that
no accurate conclusions could be
achieved unless the program had the
full support of the University women.
"Contrary to rumors, these tests
are not being sponsored by the Army
or Navy. The University has taken
full responsibility and will shoulder
the expense in order to render the
greatest possible assistance to each
student and to aid the country in
meeting the grave problems of man-
power," Miss Lloyd said.
Mr. Clark Tibbitts, director of the
University War Board explained at

The group of tests which will be
administered to the student body
has been assembled by persons in the
University who are thoroughly ac-
quainted with the use of these tests
in educational, occupational, and
military placement. The results will
be reported to each student indi-
vidually and she will be aided in
her decision as to the most valuable
field of specialization in relation to
the war effort. The tests will also be
useful in securing proper placement
in civilian employment or in the
armed -forces.

One-Third of Michigan's Coeds
Earn Part of College Expenses



Selling magazines in order to work
one's way through college may have
gone out of vogue in the past few
years, but that is no indication that
Michigan coeds are now entirely de-
pendent upon Papa for their college
upkeep, since approximately one.
third of the women students living
on campus were wholly or partially
self-supporting during the 1941-42
school year, with the prospect of
even greater employment in sight
this year.
Of course, this estimate, appearing
in The President's Report for 1941-
1942, does not take into considera-
tion the number of women students
whose summer jobs help pave the
way to a college career. The statis-
tics used in arriving at the one-third
approximation are based on work
completed during actual attendance
at the University.
More than $90,000 was earned by
University women from September,
1941, to June, 1942, in a-Variety of
jobs, including work in dormitories,
private homes, tea rooms and restau-
rants, and secretarial, clerical and
defense work.
Women working for board and
room in private homes earned over
$26,000, while. a similar amount was

paid out by dormitories, excluding
Martha Cook Building. Residents of
Martha Cook were paid $2,800 for
their services, which included posi-
tions as waitresses, switchboard and
elevator operators.
Similar work at the League ac-
counted for $13,600 of coed earnings,
and women working in tea rooms
and restaurants garnered approxi-
mately $7,800 during the two semes-
ters. Profits from secretarial, cler-
ical and defense work made up
$11,200 of the total.
During the summer session women
earned approximately $6,000, this
amount in addition to the $90,000
made during the fall and spring ses-
This year women have assumed
an increasing number of positions
in defense industries, plus work that
was formerly done by University
men. It is expected that when the
returns for the 1942-43 school ses-
sions are compiled, it will be found
that close to one-half of the Univer-
sity women will have taken on some
kind of paying work while in school,
thus relieving the manpower short-
age to some extent and keeping
father out of the poor house a few
months longer.

According to the latest reports,
the enlistments of Michigan women
in the WAVES and SPARS are at
the highest level of any time since
the inception of these branches of
the Navy and Coast Guard over six
months ago.
Word to this effect was received
today by Lieut.-Comdr. Byron E.
Flechtner, Officer in Charge of
Navy recruiting in Michigan.
Women Respond Well
"We are highly gratified at the
response of women from this state
to our efforts to publicize the oppor-
tunities offered in the WAVES and
SPARS," said Commander Flecht-
ner. "We thank the Michigan daily
and weekly newspapers for helig
us to make these opportunities
"We still need many more WAVES

have not investigated these services
to do so now,"

cannot be married to Navy men nor
SPARS to Coast Guard men; how-
ever, according to a new ruling, they
are free to marry men in their cor-
responding branch of service after
the indoctrination and training per-
iods have been completed. If a mem-
ber of WAVES ma -ries a Navy man
or a member of SPARS a Coast
Guard man after her basic training
period, she must resign or be dis-

versities, after which they are as-
signed to various duties at Navy and
Coast Guard stations within the

Coast Guard men for sea duty.
In addition to base pay ranging
from $50 to $126 per month, WAVES
and SPARS receive either their
quarters and food free or $2.75:per

lotment of $200. They get their med-
ical and dental care and many other
incidentals free.

nounced that women in their senior

Ballet Dancers
To Meet Every
Thursday Night
Something new has been added-
the ballet dance group, one of the
few groups of its kind in the coun-
Although the club has been in ex-
istence since last spring, not many
students have been aware of it. The
function of the group is to follow
ballet, keeping up with its develop-
ment during the four years of college.
Rae Larsen, '44, leader of the club
and member of both the Dancing
Masters of Michigan and the Danc-
ing Masters of America, has adopted
the Cecchetti method of ballet as
the basis of the group, although
other methods are practiced.
The group meets from 7:30 p.m.
to 9:30 p.m. every Thursday at Bar-
bour Gym and is open to both men
and women. It is not necessary to
have had any previous training in
ballet in order to become a member.
Last year the club participated in
the Dance Congress in conjunction
with the Modern Dance Club. This
year, according to Miss Larsen, the
group hopes to do some choreogra-
phy and give a presentation of its
Air Trainees

College Women Are Requested
To Control Airplane Traffic
"Women are needed to guide the
planes of America as air traffic con-
troller trainees," the office of the
U.S. Civil Service Commission in De-
troit announced yesterday.
The Civil Aeronautics branch in
Chicago has made a request for
women who are college graduates
and are interested in this field to
apply for entrance into the first
class of trainees which will begin
training April 15. There is a great
need for women in this capacity,
and there will be opportunity for
enrollment in later classes.
Airway and airport controllers in
civilian airlines are the types of
trainees who are classified under this
call. Women are urgently needed in
this capacity to relieve strained con-
ditions which have resulted from
the lack of skilled men in this field.



Active Wornen
To Be Honored
Installation Night Will Be Held
Monday in Rockham Auditorium
General recognition will be given
to all "activity" women at the annual
Installation Night which will be held
at 7:30 p.m. Monday in the Rackham
The affair is held each year for all
University women, and the central
committee hopes that no coed will
fail to attend this function. Installa-
tion of the new Women's War Council
members and Judiciary Council niem-
bers will take place on this occasion.
Also, the long-awaited orientation
advisers will be announced as well as
the central committee of next year's
soph project. As usual, Senior Soci-
ety and Mortar Board will "tap" their
new members.
In previous years a banquet has
accompanied these other activities,
but due to the food shortage it was
eliminated this year. The manner of
presentation will also differ from for-
mer installations, in that the theme
will be a radio program.
"Calling All Women" will be the
title of the program, which will em-
ploy signs to lead the responses of
the audience, as is done in broadcast-
ing stations. Another added feature
will 137e the jingles sung by the League
Council to different groups aiding in
the war effort.
Every student who has participated
in some war activity is to come
dressed in the uniform she wears on
the job, if it is possible for her to do
so. Each women's residence may also
be assigned to caty out a certain
activity as a group, although no defi-
nite plans have yet been laid.
Brief speeches will be delivered by
President Alexander G. Ruthven,
Dean Alice Lloyd, and Mr. Clark Tib-
bets, in addition to the traditional
activities of the prograni. The im-
portance of women continuing their
education, and general recognition of
the work they have been doing will
be pointed out by President Ruthven
and Dean Lloyd. Mr. Tibbets Will
explain about the women's aptitude
tests to be given in the near future.
Houses that will be special
guests at the surgical dressing
unit, which will be open from
p.m. to 5 p.m. today in the League,
include Scroll, Senior Society,
Mosher Hall, Gamma Phi Beta,
and Alpha Xi Delta.
