uate of the University, who holds the
top secretarial position in the coun-
try, that of private secretary to Don-
ald 0. Nelson, head of the important
War Productions Board, is visiting in

Miss Thornton received her B.A.
degree from the University in 1937,
when she was elected to Phi Beta
Kappa honor society. "After that I
went to Washington and applied for
and received a position as a govern-
ment typist," she said.
When asked the method by which
she has achieved the place of the
nation's "number one" woman secre-
tary, she replied: "I worked up to it
by promotions. I was promoted to
my present position about two and a
half years ago after being in that
office as an assistant secretary."
She says that there is a great need
for secretaries andoffice workers in
various departments of government
at the present time and "the more
college graduates the better."

known Negro vicar of St. Cyprian's

sociation for the Advancement of

Chicks Survive Fire
REDWOOD CITY, Calif.-(/P)-
Seven chickens survived as fire swept
a garage adjoining their coop.
Their owner, Mrs. John W. Foster,
wanted to reward them for heroic
conduct under fire, she said.
So she turned them loose for a
field day in her Victory garden.

Many Positions in Public Health
Are Offered Interested Coeds

There are many fields other than
nursing which are open to women
in public health service; among them
are physical therapy, occupational
therapy and medical technology.
Physical therapy has been a stead-
ily growing profession since the last
war and is now an accepted part of
modern medicine. It is "the treat-
ment of disability, injury and dis-
ease, by non-medicinal means, com-
prising the use of massage, exercise,
and the physical, chemical and other
properties of heat, light, water, and
electricity (except Roentgen Rays,
Radium and Electrosurgery)."
The need for trained physical ther-
apists has been estimated at three
times the total now trained in this
country. The Army will take only
women as Physical Therapy Aides,
giving them regular army status
starting as 2nd Lieut. Women may
serve in the Navy in the WAVES.
Physical therapists with a B.A. or
B.S. degree are eligible for commis-
sions in the Navy.
The i present admission require-
ments for an approved physical ther-
apy school, as determined by the
Council of Medical Education and
Hospitals of the American Medical
Association, are: graduation from an
accredited school of nursing, gradua-
tion from an accredited school of
physical education, and two years of
approved college training including
satisfactory courses in biology and
other sciences.
Occupational Therapy Is Valuable
A field, closely related to physical
therapy, which offers excellent op-
portunities for college women is oc-
cupational therapy, which is recog-
nized by the American Medical Asso-
ciation as a valuable treatment for
physical and mental disabilities.
Occupational therapy is used in

hospitals and schools for crippled
children, in mental and general hos-
pitals, in tuberculosis sanatoria, pe-
nal institutions, in home service and
in community and, curative work-
shops. The Army and Navy will use
it in the care of neuropsychiatric
cases, in rebuilding physical strength,
restoring joint function and re-edu-
cating muscles.
Two Courses Are Offered
In general, training schools offer
two types of courses. One is a three-
year course leading to a certificate
which requires two years of school-
ing, and the other is a four-year
course leading to a bachelor's degree.
Both courses require a minimum of
nine months clinical experience pro-
curred in various types of hospitals.
Admission to a school of occupa-
tional therapy requires at least one
year of post high school education,
preferably college or its equivalent.
Professional training in nursing,
home economics, business or kinder-
garten work is valuable background.
Appeals to Scientists
The college woman who is inter-
ested in science and especially in its
medical implications and who may
not wish to work with people as a
nurse or therapist must, may find
the field of medical technology of.
Medical technologists, or labora-
tory technicians as they are some-
times called (not to be confused with
other laboratory workers and aides),
are needed in Army, Navy and civil-
ian hospitals and many industrial
1ny college or university with an
affiliation with a medical school of-
fers training for this work. The basic
scientific training which is necessary
can be procured at any college or
university with good departments of
biology, chemistry and physics.

NO SPRING FEVER HERE: Because the University can't hire men for
a ground crew, they've turned to University women to help out, and
here Nancy Roberts, '45, of Dearborn, shows that with the proper clothes
and equipment, a girl makes a good "cleanup man."

MONTREAL- (AP)- Miss Frances
Perkins, United States Secretary of
Labor, said recently that in some
occupations women workers "have
far outstripped the production rec-
ords of men formerly doing that
In an address prepared for delivery
to the Canadian-American Women's
Committee on International Rela-
tions, she said: that "in one East
Coast plant making airplane parts,
women workers in three weeks' time
increased production 150 per cent
over that of men who had been on
the job ten and fifteen years."
One employer told her that while
men showed more initiative, women
showed ingenuity, she said.
"They come up with some of the
strangest time-and-labor-saving de-
vices anyone ever dreamed of but the
miracle is that they work," said Miss
"A woman in an aircraft factory

who used to teach Latin got tired of
the eleven steps that went into paint-
ing strips of color on a tube. "I
could do it with this-and-this-and-
this," she explained, blocking out
three brief steps. And she saved
eight hours a plane for them."
Miss Perkins said that in the Unit-
ed States there were 15,000,000 wo-
men at work, of whom about 1,750,-
000 were in munitions factories.
