Mass Meeting for All Those
Interested To Be Announced

Mass Meetings, Campus Tours
Tests, Physical Exams Make
First Week Busy for Freshmen
Hundreds of freshmen will pour
into Ann Arbor from all parts of
the country for orientation week,
the beginning of that exciting new
chapter of life known as college.
Orientation at the U. of M. is
complicated but well-planned, and
the freshman is whirled through a
series of examinations and tours
about campus by an upperclasswo-
mani advisor who is a member of an
orientation group headed by Bette
'Willemin, '45.
The seven advisors are Janet Gray,
Annie Hainsworth, Jean Hotchkin,
Elizabeth Jones, Joyce Livermore,
Mary Anne Olson, and Peg Weiss.
Mass Meeting eld
The first freshman activity is a
mass meeting in the League, where
the prospective coeds meet their
advisors, who will help each novice
fill out application blanks and make
appointments with academic coun-
selors. The latter are assigned to
each freshman to help select and to
approve a program of studies.
Other hours will be filled by a
series of tests and the physical ex-
amination. In free hours the groups
will wander about campus on tours
during which the advisors will ac-
quaint their charges with campus
buildings and institutions.
An important and necessary part
of orientation is the library tour,
for where and how - to find books
will facilitate later work. Another
highlight of the week is the physical
examination, which is always the ob-
ject of much speculation and talk
about the "strange things they do
to you." The well-known "angel
robes" are donned, and always give
rise to much amusement. Most of
them exaggerate WPB material re-
War Activities Introduced
War activities, now a prime sec-
tion of the coed's life, are also in-
troduced by the advisors. The fresh-
man may now participate immedi-
ately in extra-curricular activities,

That cool casual look Michigan co-
eds have in the summer session is
achieved by a clever combination of
cottons. mocassins with no socks,
simple hairdo's, and a natural tan
and bright lipstick as makeup. !
Winter college wardrobes are us-
ually intricate and expensive, with
large items such as coats, suits and
wool dresses taking huge chunks out
of the budget, but summer students
'have cnly one field of concentration
-a variety of brightly colored or!
white - cottons, easily laundered andj
enough to always have fresh ones
on hand..
Seersuckers have become favoritesf
with women away from home as they
require almost no ironing and there-
fore can always be kept fresh. A
two-piece seersucker suit should be
a basic member of a coed's summer
wardrobe for this reason..


Cottons Important
You can't have too many tailored
shirtmaker's - either in chambray
striped cotton, or perhaps a shan-
tung or silk one for dates.
But feminine frills will not be ig-
nored on Ann Arbor's campus any-
more than in other parts of the na-
tion this year. Billowing glazed
chintzes with low necklines and short
sleeves and skirts will be worn both
for dates and to liven up 8 Sclock
Dirndl skirts are the kind you can
make yourself in an afternoon, and
a variety of crisp cool blouses are
another "basic" for summer Ann
Arbor wear.
Dates are more informal than ever
in the summer-spectators, if you
can find a pair, a flower in your
hair and a starched cotton are the
only requisites. A linen suit is nice,
but not a necessity, as is a white wool

Women's Editor
There will be a mass meeting of
all coeds interested in working on

and terrifying. However, through
orientation week and its many ac-
tivities, the new freshman is directed
smoothly and confidently into cam-

life marked alternately by play and
hard work, and the formation of
many lasting friendships,

nerd shortly after the start of the
semester for women interested in try-
ing out for the staff.
Fashions, social affairs, weddings
and engagements have been left far
behind as the women's staff has been
converted into a war activity. It is
now the chief organ for many campus
projects such as the hospital volun-
teers, the women's recruiting for the
WACs, WAVES, SPARs and Marine
Corps, the bond and stamp drives and
Bomber Scholarship to aid icthe
education of retuiing servicemen
and women.
In addition, lectures by senior staff
members and speakers from local
newspapers and the journalism de-
partment teach the understaffs the
elements of journalism, how to write
news stories and to make up a paper.

Buys Bonds for

The Bomber Scholarship Commit-
tee is raising $100,000 to buy a war
bond now, and will after the armis-
tice convert the money into scholar-
ships for returning servicemen.
The committee has, in the two
years of its existence, reached ap-
proximately one-fourth of its goal,
but with a newly-integrated cential
group and plans for dances, carni-
vals, shows, and special drives, the
$100,000 mark should not be far

by Mary Lee Mason, Mavis Kennedy,

included a carnival, a symphony-

this change of duties, the freshman
woien formed a working crew,
named '47 Corps, put on blue jeans
and plaid shirts, took up their wea-

paper stickers . . . and went to work.
New Committee
During the Fall the freshman co-
eds were organized through their ori-
entation groups, each group having
a specified day and time to rake.
Early this year a Freshman Project
central committee was chosen which
took over the duties formerly under
the direction of Marcia Sharpe,

of freshman civilian men on campus.
Informzal"kits and songs by the co-
eds were the th-emel of the affair,
which enabled the freshman women
to assemble in a group and provided
opportunity for them to become ac-
quainted with one another.
Clean-up Drive
This spring the '47 Corps, in co-
operation with the city drive, spon-
sored Campus Clean-Up, during
which the '47 workers raked 'lawns,
picked up loose papers, and placed
refuse containers near University
buildings. Freshmnan lea gue houses
and dormitories were assigned cer-
tain sections, on campus for which
they were resl)Onsible. A friendly
rivalry existed between the various
freshman houses in an effort to win
the prize for having the cleanest sec-
tion on campus, and Jordan Hall
captured first place and was award-
ed the prize---a tin can trophy of the
'47 Corps.
Victory gardens became the next
conern of the freshman project,
hdid toiato "crop" were planted
and carocd for' by the coeds.
These freshman doings and duties
have provided the '47 women with
fun and relaxation, and at the same'
time have given them a feeling of
satisfaction in knowing that they
have been doing something worth-
while. The summer-term freshmen
will be able t{) "carry on" the useful
and patriotic work started by this
term's '47 Corps and will be able to
realize their aim--Campus Beautiful.
