Vwo Prominent Seniors Join
WAAC, Marine Corps Reserve

Two senior women prominent in
campus affairs, Charlotte M. Noble
and Jean Jeffrey, recently joined the
women's reserves of the WAAC and
the Marine Corps, respectively.
"I want to go overseas," said Miss
Noble when asked her reasons for
desiring to enter the women's mili-
tary forces. "I want to do my part
to aid the war effort, and I would
even scrub floors or do the most
menial labor if it would give me an
opportunity to serve abroad."
Miss Noble was sworn in as an
Auxiliary in the WAAC and has been
placed in an inactive status until
she finishes the present term. 'She
expects to be called to active duty
sometime after June 15.
She has had no specialized train-
ing, but is an English literature ma-
jor with minors in political science,
philosophy and history. Miss Noble
stated that she may apply for offi-
cers' training upon completion of
her basic training.
Miss Noble, who hails from Ann
Arbor, is an Alpha Phi and has been
active in campus affairs. She is a
committee member of the Interna-
tional Relations Club, has helped

Council. She was on the publicity
committee of Theatre Arts, was a
member of Panhellenic Council for
several years and worked on JGP in

members of the WAVES and SPARS.
Miss Jeffrey stated that although
she had her teacher's certificate,
she did not care to teach. She wanted
to enter the women's military forces
primarily for patriotic reasons, but
felt that the training she would re-
ceive would be a valuable aid in
enabling her to obtain a better job
after the war.
"I would like particularly to go
into communications," said Miss Jef-
frey, "although I have had no spe-
cial training in that line." Most of
her training has been in leadership.
She is majoring in English educa-
tion, with minors in music and social
Miss Jeffrey is a member of Gam-

To Third Open
House at League
Soldiers! The central committee o
Freshman Project invites you to at-
tend the third in their series of
weekly open houses to be held from
8 p.m. to midnight today in the
Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo rooms
of the League.
According to Ruthann Bales, the
affair will be strictly "open" with
the soldiers and coeds free to drop
in at any time. In addition to the
dancing, bingo and bridge, which
will provide the principle entertain-

group of organized games.
Continuing the policy which was
accidentally started at the first open
house two weeks ago, soldiers and
students wishing to learn some
dances of South America will be able
to mix with the Latin American
dancing class. This entertainment
started through an error when the
dancing class and the open house
found themselves scheduled to use
the same room.
Jean Gaffney, general chairman
of Freshman Project, Shirley Cobb
and Shirley Sickels will be in charge
of the affair this week.

Second Course
In Petroleum
Qeology Planned
A second concentrated program in
Petroleum Geology to prepare wom-
en for vacancies known to exist in
petroleum industires will start June
14, 1943 and will end about June 1,
The first group began in February,
1943. Because this group will fill less
than half of the vacancies, a second
group will be started. The purpose of
this curriculum is to supply the oil
companies with replacements in their
geological staf fs.
The program was prepared after
consultations with geologists repre-
senting most of the larger oil pro-
ducing companies. A maximum of
46 hours of credit can be earned. This
credit can be applied toward a de-
gree at the University or at other in-
stitutions. Those with a Bachelor's
degree will receive 29 hours of grad-
uate credit.
Prerequisites for admission to this
concentrated program include one
year's work in physical and histori-
cal geology, trigonometry, and a "B"
