Govt. Mapping
Course Begins
For Women
Surveying, Photogrammetry,
Topographic Mapping Classes
To Be Given After Feb. 1 5
A second thirteen-week course in
surveying, topographic mapping and
photogrammetry will be given for
women at the University by the
United States Office of Education
under the auspices of the College of
Engineering, starting shortly after
Feb. 15.
There is an increasing demand on
the part of government agencies do-
ing war work for. trained women in
this field. Out of the 27 women al-
ready trained, graduates found that
they have been able to literally select
their own positions.
Successful completion of the course
permits qualification in the Federal
Civil Service as an engineering aide.
Salaries start at $1,800 and the class
is tuition-free.
The prerequisites are either three
and one-half years of college work in
any field or two years of college study
with major work in engineering, arch-
itecture, physics, chemistry, mathe-
matics, forestry or geology.
Emphasis in this course will be
placed upon training in the principles
of making maps from aerial photo-
graphs, in the operation of stereo-
scopic machines and in the principles
of surveying and topographic map-
ping.

Manage'

To Survive Shoe
Rationing Order
By LOUISE COMINS
Cries of "They can't do this to me"
and "I should have bought those shoes
last Saturday" echoed through the
halls of the variousswomen's dorms,
league houses, and sororities yester-
day when immediate shoe rationing
was announced.
The coeds have cut down on their
sugar intake, ground their coffee to
the last bean and even painted their
legs to replace those precious nylons,
but this lates development took most
of them completely by surprise.
After the first excitement, the girls
began to think about the situation
more seriously and have decided that
things are not quite as bad as it
seemed at first.
Phyllis Laufe, '46: "Pairs of shoes
are the least we can give. Who cares
what we wear on our feet?"
Jeanne Lovett, '44: "It's a pity
we're not boys. They don't need so
many shoes."
Margaret Groessema, '43: "I think
that the surprise announcement was
an excellent idea. That's the way to
ration."
Betty Koffman, '45: "We'll feel it
here; because we do so much walking.
We'll have to use our ration card for
school shoes."
Evelyn Phillips, '45: "I think it's a
good thing. If there were no ration-
ing, some people would hoard, and
others wouldn't be able to get any
shoes."
Molly Ann Winokur, '44: "My fa-
ther thinks it's a good idea."

Announcement Of Two New
Appointments Will Be Made
A mass meeting for all women in-
terested in doing volunteer hospital
work will be held at 4:15 p.m.
Wednesday in the League. Although
this work was carried on last semester
under the heading of the Sophomore
Project, women in other classes are
also welcome to take part in this
work.
Students may sign up for two or
four hours a week and may work
either in the afternoon or evening. In
addition to the regular work the vol-
unteers did last semester, new posi-
tions in the clinics will also be filled
by these women.
Two new additions to the central
committee of this project will be an-
nounced at the mass meeting. These
positions will be filled by selecting two
of the volunteers who worked at the
hospital last semester.
Natalie Mattern, '45, chairman of
the central committee, urges that all
women, who have the time, turn out,
for the shortage of help at the hos-
pital is even more acute than former-
ly.
The work required of the volunteers
includes carrying trays, feeding pa-
tients, putting away linen, buying
things for patients at the Galens
store, and doing other small jobs.
Panhellenic Petitions

grams for the banquet. For the annu-
al ball, the positions open are general
chairman and chairmen for music,
publicity, ballroom, programs, tickets,

merly established, has been taken
over as a war emergency training pro-
gram classroom.
Girls from league houses which
need new presidents are requested
to place their petitions for office
in the Judiciary box in the Under-
graduate Office in the Leagut by
5 p.m. Wednesday, Lorraine Jud-
son, '43, chairman of Judiciary
