At. a mass meeting held yesterday

help clean up the lawnA.''
This meeting washeld under the
auspices of the Personnel Adminis-
tration division of the Woman's War
Council which is the new woman7
power corps of the University. This,
new "wmn n's land army" will, take
the place of the men who have been
called to service or who have gOn4,
to work in defense plants. Its chief
campaign is to "groom the campus,"
especially to rake the lawns.

"Girls who are interested in serv-
ice with the Navy should obtain
their college degrees before joining
the WAVES," Lieut. Margaret May
Diehm of the WAVES stated recently.
Lieut. Diehm, who has been sta-
tioned for a few weeks at the Uni-
versity Hospital doing special work;
for the Navy, was graduated from
Smith College,, Northampton, Mass.,
in October, 1942, in the first group
of 120 women to receive the intensive'
one-month course after the estab-
lishment of the WAVES.
Finishes Basic Training
After her basic training, she was
sent to Indiana University, and later
to the National Naval Medical Cen-1

at. the University of Pennsylvania.
She advises girls to obtain their
degrees before entering the service,
iecause in this way they will be bet-
ter eqiuilped to enter one of, the
many fields which are offered.
Many Positions Open
A few of the many positions which
are open to prospective WAVES from
the business standpoint are store-
keeper, which is equivalent to the
quartermaster in the army, and yeo-
man, whose duties comprise plain
secretarial work. More on the tech-
nical side is the position of radio
operator, requiring training in phys-
ics, mathematics, and related sub-
jects. Laboratory training is neces-
sary for the field of pharmacist mate.I
The WAVES, an outgrowth of theI

Lieut. Diehm taught biological sci- new bill before Congress to estab-
ences at Drexel Institute of Technol- lish them indefinitely as a unit of
ogy in Philadelphia and received her the Navy. This bill also provides for
doctor's degree in medical sciences sea duty.

The Pride of -Her Life
in Cashmere

May, Secure
Defense Jobs
"We can place any number of col-
lege .women in jobs either for the
summer or for the duration," F. A,
Miller, director of personnel for a
Midwestern rubber plant, told an
interviewer recently. In other de-
fense industries personnel directors
echoed his, attitude.
In previous years and even last;
year factories offered only a limited
number of summer jobs to coeds!
because it was felt that training
them for temporary jobs and their!
replacement in the fall presented too
great a problem. Employers this;
year, however, faced by an acute]
manpower shortage, are looking to!
college women, both undergraduates
and graduates, to fill positions left
vacant by men now in uniform.
Undergraduates who plan to re-
turn to school in the fall will fill
jobs which require little training,'
such as clerical work and inspecting
in the factory, but for coeds whoI
have had courses in either chemis-
try, physics, or mathematics, there1
will be positions in the laboratories.
There will be unlimited opportuni-
ties in essential industries for grad-
uating senior women who have ma-
jored in chemistry, physics, mathe-
maticp, and engineering.
This development provides an op-
portunity for those college . women
who find it impossible to attend the
summer term to contribute to the
wa,r effort during the summer re-
tess. Graduating women may secure
permanent positions in this field.

'42. son of Mr. and Mrs. Howard I.
Chauvin of Saginaw.

her freshman year she was elected to
Alpha Lambda Delta honorary socie-
ty. She is junioir accountant of the
Michiganensian and has been tapped
for Mortor Board.
Ensign Schust is a member of Chi
Phi fraternity and was president

Chemistry Jobs
Open to Coeds
New Opportunity Is Offered
In War Industrial Research
With factories turning out arma-
ments, medical supply houses and
other industries clamoring for chem-
ists, women in the field of chemistry
are having a field day.
Production of food to feed the
Army and the Navy, of fuel for
tanks and planes, and of fabrics for
tents, parachutes and uniforms is
dependent upon the testing and re-
search done in chemical laboratories.
Women Handle Research
Much of the routine laboratory
work is now being done by women
who have had only a few college
chemistry courses. The more diffi-
cult research in. many cases is being
handled by women - thoroughly-
trained women with doctor's degrees.
Becoming aware of the many op-
portunities in this field, many col-
lege Women are "now 'enrolling in
chemistry classes. Accoiding to Dr.
Helen I. Miner of the department
of chemistry at Wayne, "There have
always been women chemists, just
as there have been some women doc-
tors, but war production is expand-
ing the field for them.."
College Degree Helps
With two years of college work a
woman can do routine analytical
work. With an A.B. degree she can
do much more responsible work in
chemistry and with a Ph.D. she is
equipped to do advanced work and
independent research. To aid women
who have been out of the field of
chemistry for some years, many re-
fresher courses are being offered.
