Jobs Offered'
In Accounting
Seniors Will Be Interviewed
For Prospective Training
Graduating senior women with no
definite plans for a career will be
given an opportunity to investigate
the field of certified public account-
ing when Richard Donham, repre-
sentative of a Chicago firm, inter-
views applicants from. 10 a.m. to noon
and from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. tomorrow.
The firm is offering a scholarship
training, course, to be held from. June
26 to Sept. 8 at Northwestern Univer-
sity and at Connecticut College, for
48 women from midwestern colleges
and universities and guarantees the
graduates positions as juniors on the
firm's staff.
All Expenses To Be Paid
During their training, all expenses
of the students, including tuition,
books, room and board will be paid
by the firm. In addition they will
receive $10 per week for their per-
sonal use. On successful completion
of the course, followed by one week's
vacation, graduates will report for
work with the firm at a minimum
salary of $145 per month.
According to Mr. Donham, the
coming summer graduates will prob-
ably report to the New York or
Detroit offices of the firm and pos-
sibly to one of the other seventeen
offices. "Although juniors attached
to one office work out of that office
alone, the national and international
character ofrthe firm holds possibili-
ties for future transfer if desired," he
added. "In any event, auditing work
will take girls into a variety of com-
panies and industries and presents
some chance for travel with expenses
paid."
No Experience Necessary
Although the firm is interested in
girls with accounting backgrounds,
their program is primarily designed
to train coeds who have not before
thought of this field as holding prom-
ise for them. It makes no difference
what they are majoring in or what
subjects they have taken.
When the juniors start their work
in the firm, they will be closely sup-
ervised by more experienced members
of the staff. Those women who show
capacity and grasp of the subject will
progress to higher responsibility witih
subsequent increases in pay.
Coeds interested in being inter-
viewed should contact Mrs. Heil, sec-
retary of the business administration
school, for an appointment before
tomorrow.

Males To Crash
Senior, Junior
Women's Night
The prospect of free entertainment
will, according to rumor, lead seven
pledges of a local fraternity to "be-
come" graduating senior women at
7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 27, to gain,
entrance to the first floor of the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre for Sen-
ior Night and Junior Girls Play. a
"No man can outsmart us," Phyl
Buck, '44, assistant chairman of ar-
rangements, said yesterday. "We'll
spot our ersatz seniors, and after we
do there'll be seven more men in
Ypsi."
Preparations in the other camp
are, in the meantime, continuing.
"We have two courses of action," the
fraternity president said yesterday.
"Either we'll use the names of senior
girls who aren't going to their old
affair, or we'll slip phony names on
the senior list and pass in with those.
"It's not because we object to pay-
ing 60c for a balcony seat," he con-
tinued. "It's the principle of the
thing. In this country there are no
class distinctions. So where do the
senior women get the idea they can
sit in the orchestra and shunt the
'great unwashed' in to the balcony.
Men of the campus, unite!"
Miss Buck yesterday hinted a sec-
ret weapon in the offing: possibly a
password for senior women only. Or
the "authorities" might take a tug at
the hair of each "senior" to test for,
validity, for the men will no doubt
wear wigs.
Aloof from the impending battle,C
the junior coeds are holding daily.
rehearsals for Junior Girls Play,
Which will be given at 8:30 p.m.
Thursday and Friday, April 27 and
28. Senior women will be admitted
free Thursday, while balcony seats
will be sold to the public, and Friday's
performance will be entirely open to
the public.

Union, according to Jean Bisdee, '44,
chairman of Bomber Scholarship.
Petitioning is chiefly for those in-
terested in the co-chairmanship of
the 1944 - 45 Bomber Scholarship
Committee, which will be held by one
coed and one man. However, anyone
interested in other types of work,
such as publicityand special events,

Social Director of the League from
10 a.m. to noon and from 1:30 p.m. to
4 p.m. tomorrow and Friday and from
9 a.m. to noon Saturday. Applica-
tions should include, in addition to
the information requested on the
blank, the prospective date of gradu-
ation of the applicant and whether
or not he or she expects to attend the
summer session or term.
Petitioners will be interviewed by
the Bomber Scholarship Committee,
which is composed of chairmen of
student activities of the League and
Union, and headed by Miss Bisdee.
This year's work on the Bomber
Scholarship Fund, which is now one-
fourth of the way toward its $100,000
goal, has been accomplished by a
functional committee of League and
Union members.
SteVens Cooperative

Stevens Cooperative House will hold
a tea for prospective Co-op members
from 4 to 5:30 p.m. today at 816
Forest Street.

and ask any questions which they
might have concerning Cooperatives.
ICC menibers from other houses are
also urged to met students who are

heads will work in conjunction with

fill the same positions.
Panhellenic and Assembly have de-
cided to combine their annual for -
mals into one big event to be given

men's War Council will interview ap-
plicants from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

By ELLEN HILL
The freshman coeds in their recent
bloadcasting campaign have let the
campus know that it is spring and
the time when those barren plots of
lawn that have been student stamp-
ing grounds all winter should be al-
lowed to provide themselves with a
bit of grass.
Jay-walking students guiltily hop-
ped back on the sidewalk and took
the longer way around as "The Amer-
ican Frontier hasmoved westward-
trail blazing is no longer necessary
in the State of Michigan" boomed
over the campus. "Sailor, don't drop
your anchor here," startled many a
man of the sea into sticking to the
good ole cement sidewalks instead
of the short but, thanks to the voice
of the Freshman Project, more con-
spicious lawn trails.
The gals of '47 are really in earnest
about their Class Project. Last fall
they donned blue jeans, plaid skirts,
armed themselves with rakes and at-
tacked fallen leaves and loose paper

with vigor, amidst the shrill whistles
of the opposite sex. This spring has
already seen the freshman women
coming to the aid of suffering lawns
and grounds. Refuse containers for
cigarettes and loose papers have been
placed around the campus by the '47
coeds to help alleviate the severe
shortage of men workers. The fresh-
man women realize that although
their work may not be as glamorous
as other war work, it is just as es-
sential.
So make way, Michigan men and
women, for the new troop of workers
who are determined to realize their
slogan, "Campus Beautiful"-the '47
Corps.
USO Lists To Close
All coeds who have not completed
their registration for the USO Junior
Hostess Corps must do so by Monday,
May 1, or their names will be with-
drawn from the lists. Letters of rec-
ommendation, one from a minister
and one from a family friend, must
be in by that date.

SONNY DUNHAM
has already presented "Victory Varie-
ties" in an effort to give more enjoy-
ment to the men and women attend-
ing the University.
Orchestra Played for Soph Prom
Sonny Dunham has appeared here
previously at Soph Prom in 1941. H-:s
success as a bandleader was preceded
by solo stardom when still a young-
ster. In less. than ten years after he
first played the trumpet, Dunham
was voted "First among the 'Hot'
Trumpeters."
Before organizing his own band,
Dunham played with Glen Gray and
his Casa Loma orchestra. He is now
bracketed by the trade reviewers of
Tin Pan Alley with the nation's top-
flight bands, on the basis of appear-
auces at theatres, nightclubs and
radio.
Decorations at Minimum
Decorations for the dance will be
kept to a minimum. However, the
committee has planned for unusual
door prizes to be presented in a novel
mannrer.
Ticket sales will be held next week.
Location of ticket booths will be an-
nIounced at a later date. Proceeds
from the affair will go to the Bomber
S,,'bolarship and other University-
picked funds.
