In Blood Donor
Campus Drive
The quota of 100 donors for the
League Blood Bank which will be
held from 12:30 p.m. to 4:15 p.m.
Thursday and Friday; Feb. 11 and 12
at the Women's Athletic Building
has been filled, announced Jo Fitz-
patrick, '44, chairman of the Wo-
men's Blood Bank, yesterday.
"The cooperation of the women
was marvelous. We had expected to
continue registration for two more
days, but the quota was filled much
faster than we had planned," Miss
Fitzpatrick said.
Because the quota was filled so
quickly, many women who wanted
to be blood donors did not have the
chance to register. However, there
will be another blood bank in March.

Your Neck Is Showing !
The decollete "peekaboo" blouse,
style scandal of World War I, quietly
reappeared in this spring's advance
fashion showings. Once a subject
for sermons, it was calmly accepted
in 1944.

Due to the existing shortage of
teachers practically everyone trained
for teaching has a position, com-
mented T. Luther Purdom, Director
of the University Bureau of Ap-
pointments and Occupational Infor-
mation, recently.
The greatest number of calls for
teachers in 1943 were in the fields
of mathematics, science, commercial,
elementary education, physical edu-
cation, shop, agriculture and music,
particularly that involving the direc-
tion of a band. And, predicted Mr.
Purdom, "It would appear that the
best opportunities will again be
found in the same seven fields this
"Those teachers who have not yet
made up their minds in which sub-
ject field they wish to specialize
would do well to consider where the
greatest demands are, since salaries
and the possibility of being placed in
a location desirable to them will be
In regard to teaching high school,
Mr. Purdom expressed the opinion
that frequently college students fail
to prepare in enough .different fields
so that they will be able to fit satis-
factorily into a high school situation.
If a prospective teacher wishes to
major in English, social science,
Latin or Spanish would be good min-
In choosing a major like psychol-
ogy or philosophy the prospective
high school teacher should have a
sound background in some other
basic field, because most high schools
do not have courses in subjects like
Answering the question of the de-
mand for college teachers, Mr. Pur-
dom said, "Demands for college
teachers are greatest in mathemat
ics, chemistry, physics, and phases of
engineering, especially on canpuses
where numbers of servicemen are
being trained."

ics, and phases of engineering, espe-I
cially on campuses where numbersI
of servicemen are being trained."
The .important problem of salary
was also discussed. "It seems safe to!
say that the salaries of the great
mass of teachers have been raised
from $100 to $400 a month. The
highest salaries are logically paid in
the defense areas where expenses are
proportionately high."
One of the questions most often
asked by prospective teachers today
is: "Should I take a teaching posi-
tion or should I try toddo something
which seems a more direct part of
the war effort?" To this question
Mr. Purdom would say that there is
an extreme need for a sound educa-
tional policy at this time and well-
trained teachers are needed more
now than ever before.
Tutor Requests Can
Be Left at League
"A lot of people have been phoning
about getting 'tutors, and although
this is perfectly all right, quicker serv-
ice can be gotten by signing up at
the tutorial box in the Undergradu-
ate Office at the League," said Jane
Faggen, '44, today.
If tutors are wanted for over the
week-end, Miss Faggen suggested that
the signing up take place early in the
week, since persons waiting until late
Friday to sign will not get tutors
until the following Monday.

Men's Houses-'
Pledge Help

Five of the campus' fifteen men's

Junior Girls Project's $30,000 war
bond and stamp campaign, it was
announced recently by Mary Lee
Mason, '45, assistant chairman of
Stamp representatives in the hou-
ses are Howard Stine, Chicago Lodge;
Arlie Trahern, Acacia-Alpha Tau
Omega; Robert Barton, Lawyers'
Club; Harold Johnson, Lockwood
Manor, and Charles Helmick, Cy
Adams House.
"We sincerely appreciate the co-
operation of 'these houses in our
stamp drive," Miss Mason said yes-
terday, "and hope to have the sup-
port of the other houses soon. The
coeds have put up excellent backing
for this project, and we would like
to make it as fully as possible an
all-campus campaign."
Representatives from other men's
residences are asked to contact Miss
Mason, at 5718, concerning the drive.
