"wishing well" for each year during
which they have been unattached.
Married women will blow out candles,
while special arrangements, as yet
unannounced, are being made for
senior coeds wearing fraternity pins.
Custom dictates pinning with safety-
pins, but wartime conditions have
forced initiation of a new custom, for
there are no safety-pins on the mar-
ket in Ann Arbor.
"But there's no shortage of lem-
ons," Phyl Buck, '44, assistant chair-
man of senior arrangements, said
yesterday. Engaged seniors must

Coeds in World War II Join Land
Army, Make Surgical Dressings

How to make 21 kinds of surgical
dressings was one of the classes of-
fered in war-time on U. of M.'s cam-
pus-'17 war-time.
That was the year wide striped
skirts were just enough above the
ankle to let the most stylish check-
ered hose be seen. For dates, a Daily
ad featured "Lovely satin dresses-
models in black, brown and Navy.
2eaturing sash belts and bows, silk
cringes, loop panels and silk soutache
)raid embroidery. Styles which as-
ure one of smartness."
Summer school women in '17 be-
ame members of the Land Army.
3roups of well chaperoned coeds took
veekly or monthly trips to neighbor-
rig orchards to pick cherries. Hap-
:ily, or unhappily, a group of 50
nen, unfit for service because of
lat feet, decided to go. cherry picking
oo--in a neighboring orchard. Soon,
according to a reporter of "Wolver-
.ne," a forerunner of The Daily,
methods of clipping cherries were
;eing discussed over the fence, and
its wasn't too long before the gate
vas found." There was no statement
made as to how production decreased
after the finding of the gate.
Could Canoe Until 9:.30
But all was not surgical dressings

or coeds of World War I. They were
illowed to go canoeing until 9:301

Moral issues were the flaming news
f the day. Movies shown in the
.vinter of 1918 had vivid titles such
is, "A Mother's Sin," "The Splendid
Sinner." "Daughter of the Gods
She Outdid Venus)," "Thais," "The
Natural Law," "The Moral Law" and
"Her Silent Sacrifice." Nor were
Ann Arbor women just content to
watch such things appear at the
noving picture houses. The Ann Ar-
)or Women's Club rebelled on Theda
Bara's portrayal of "Cleopatra." The
Mayor could do nothing to close the
picture, "at least until I view one
performance." Lloyd C. Douglas,
who was then pastor of the Congrega-
tional Church, was in agreement with
the women's clubs.
Women Supervised Strictly
Although the movies seemed to in-
dulge in a bit of flaming youth, the
University women were kept in strict
supervision. Ten-thirty permissions
-n Friday and Saturday nights were
the, rule.
Just as now, pleas were'published
daily for women to work in surgical

dressing units, to aid at the Hospital,
join the Nurse Corps, sew for the
Red Cross and buy war bonds and
stamps, but it will take more work
for us of '44 to catch up with the
record set by the women of '18. All
the campus war loan drives went
over the top and knitted goods were
flooding the battlefields of France.
However, there was one unfortunate
incident concerning the latter. Some
of the women knitting the grey
sweaters for servicemen Were inclin-
ed to give the finished product to
local civilian swains. This proced-
ure was rapped angrily in Wolverine
Meatless Days Then, Too
Hardships that come with every
war were noticeable then too. Dorm-
itories observed wheatless and meat-
less days; women as well as men stu-
dents had classes at 7:30 a.m. in-
stead of 8 a.m. And the wool situa-
tion was so precarious as to prompt
a member of the DAR to state. "The
time will come when it will be un-
patriotic to own any more than one

years ago when the World War had
only the number 1 after it.
Lectures Stress
With the dual purpose of adjusting
to wartime needs and of giving cam-
pus women a fuller understanding of
the value of physical fitness, the
physical education department has
this year instituteda series of rela-
tive lectures and has devised a new'
program of exercises, according to
Mrs. Dorothy Beise Miller, associate
supervisor of physicgl education.
Recreational leadership in the
family and community are being
stressed in this semester's lectures.
When the weather does not permit
outdoor sports, there are special
"rainy day" programs. The "rainy
day" programs are designed especial-
ly with the idea of group entertain-
ment for various age groups.
- While coeds march to "The Vic-
tors," bicycle in time with "A Bicycle
Built for Two," jump to "Pistol Pack-
in' Mamma," and rest to the soothing
strains of "Star Dust," they are, and
not just incidentally, working to-
wards agility, endurance and
strength. The exercises are designed
to improve fitness and the specific
purpose of each exercise is pointed
Previously the year of physical ed-
uca tion was made up of four seasons,
during each of which a different
sport was followed. This year, the
student remains in one class for the
entire semester. Mrs. Miller expressed
the belief that a sounder grasp of
one sport might be more desirable
than an introduction to two of them.
Student Tutors Needed
Tutorial Committee has announced
a demand particularly for tutors in
economics' and fine arts and an all-
over demand for tutors, who may
register for the course for which they
are qualified in the Undergraduate
Office of the League, according to
Jane Faggan, chairman.
The Tutorial Committee requires
that tutors have received a grade of
B and preferably A in the course they
wish to teach, and are paid for their

Under the new plan, both of the
vice-presidents will head boards of
their own: The vice-president in
charge of dormitories will head a
board consisting of the house presi-
dents of every dormitory and auxil-
iary dormitory.. The vice-president

a board, which will include a repre-
sentative from each zone.
Rifle Club Wins
The University Women's Rifle Club
defeated Northwestern in a tele-
graphic match recently by the close
score of 480-478, according to Joan
Kintzing, '45, manager of the club.
Eight women who have consistently
made 'the lowest scores during the
regular club shooting periods niade
up the team, scores being turned in
by the following Rifle Club mem-
bers: Emilene Wallace, Jane Zabel,
Betty Grimes, Bernice Grimes, Fran-
ces Covitt, Joyce Ludovic, Betty Mit-
chell and Joar Kintzing.

Would-Be War
Brides Advised
To Take Step
Young women should not be too
timid or cautious about marrying
their soldier, sailor or marine sweet-
heart if they have known him for a
reasonable length of time, Dr. Gul-
ielma F. Alsop, physician for Barnard
College in New York and co-author
of a book on marriage, advised would-
be war brides recently.
"Once assured in your own mind,
marry him before he goes to war.
Young people today are romantic,
idealistic and ready for any kind of
devotion. The heightened emotion
that sweeps the youth of a nation in
wartime makes for permanence in
marriage," she explained.
Young war brides have definite
responsibilities to meet. "You will
now be judged as a member of a
partnership, not as an isolated indi-
vidual. You must reflect your hus-
band's ideals as well as your own.
You have become a part of the war.
Win the war with him," Dr. Alsop
War brides should not date other
men, but should devote leisure hours
to war work or to entertaining ser-
vicemen at properly conducted com-
munity parties.
Dr. Alsop, who has had many years
of association with girls at Barnard,
cautioned against week-end mar-
riages. The young woman who meets
a soldier on Friday, marries him on
Saturday. and parts with him on
Monday may have serious difficulties

The importance of good teaching
in the schools of the United States is
greater today than ever before. Yet
at this moment there exists a serious
shortage of competent teachers prop-
erly trained and equipped to prepare
our 24,000,000 school children for the
problems they will be forced to face
in the world of tomorrow.
Men and women alike, influenced
by patriotic appeals and often by
superior earning opportunities, have
left the schools to enter the armed
forces, war industries, government
services or other non-teaching occu-
pations. Thus a great shortage of
experienced teachers have developed,
forcing some states to issue emer-
gency certificates, double up on clas-
ses, drop courses from the curricu-
lum, and, in some cases, even to close
Naturally, the situation is more
critical in some teaching fields and
in some geographical areas than in
others. The American Council on
Education reports show that at the
secondary school level, teacher short-
ages are greatest in the fields of in-
dustrial arts, agriculture, physical
education, physics, chemistry, mathe-
matics,- commercial education and
home economics.
Losses from the elementary schools
have been scattered through all the
To Open Interviews
Applicants for the co-chairman-
ship of the 1944-45 Bomber Scholar-
ship Committee will be interviewed

fices of the Union, according to Jean

One man and one coed will com-
prise the co-chairmanship, and other
positions on the committee will be
decided later. Students who wish to
work on the committe in some other
capacity than as chairman are asked
to apply at the same time.

grades. Shortages tend to be worst
in rural areas and small towns but
the pinch is being increasingly felt
even by systems paying better salar-
ies and offering more favorable con-
ditions of employment.
It is, of course, to the teachers
colleges, unive'sities and liberal arts
colleges that the schools in general
ordinarily look for their supply of
new teachers. Unfortunately, how-
ever, enrollments in teachers colleges
have declined.
Education has been named by the
War Manpower Commission as an
essential occupation. The President
has stated that education must be
maintained at a high level.
