is eighteen years or older and is corn-
preting her sophomore year or if she
is a junior or senior, she may apply.

ouit,and the final selections will be
made on the following factors: schol-
astic record, the school's recommen-
dation as to character, results of a
screening test, and a personal inter-
view With a representative of the
Curtiss - Wright Corporation. She,
nust, however, have completed math-
emtatics through advanced algebra in
order to be eligible. College mathe-

The Engineering Cadettes are train-
ed at the expense of Curtiss-Wright
and are paid a salary while in train-
ing, in colleges and universities all

coleges and will attend the regular
engineering classes of that school.
Among the courses that will be taken
are such subjects as mathematics,
aircraft drawing, theory of flight, and
aeronautical terminology.

The Engineering Cadettes will, by
filling in the places left by the men
who have gone to war, perform a dir-
ect service to their country and will,
give themselves good training for jobs
in the post-war world. As engineers
in the Curtiss-Wright plant, they will
be paid a high salary and they will
be where there are excellent oppor-
tunities for advancement.
University of Michigan coeds who

give information concerning- the'
WAVES to University women.
They will make a special appeal to
those women who will be graduated
in Febrduary to interest them in en-
listing immediately after graduation.
They have chosen this particular
time to come so that those women
interested can have an opportunity
to talk it over with their parents dur-
ing the Christmas holidays.

They may by buying stamps, but we
have very little record of it."

Le campus uni.t
Miss Whittemore added that there
are still openings for instructors, and
those women who have completed
six hours of work and can pass a

gested that volunteers who are con-
templating becoming instructors
complete their requirements now in
order to get in on the fun.
The campus unit will be closed for
the following two weeks, but work
rooms will be open from 1 p.m. to
4 p.m. and from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30
p.m. Wednesdays and Fridays in the

for them to leave blouses or smocks
at the League so that they will be
handy when women have two hours'

There are several new special pro-
grams for women to serve as officers,
in the WAVkS. College graduates
who have majored in physics or have

cruiting of well qualified students
for schools of nursing; and (4) the
enlistment of nurses who are pro-
fessionally inactive.
