With Children Greatly Needed

"Any girl who has any skill that
can.be used in any way in work with
children is needed on the new Child
Care Co mittee," says Lucy Chase
Wright, '44, chairman of the commit-
Miss Wright has announced that
F interviews for all positions on the
central committee will be held from
3:30 p.n.to 5,3a pm. today in the
Unidergraduate Offices at the League.
INo preliminary petitioning will be
required for positions and women of
any class may report for the inter-
views. Offices such as publicity chair-
man and chairmanships of associat-
ed cbm mittees in charge of Girl
Scout and Girl Reserve Work are to
be filled.
Worktobe Varied
The work of the Child Care com-
mittee, Miss Wright emphasized,
will cover a wide field. Girl Scout
and Girl Reserve leaders and assis-
tat leaders are needed and also
playground assistants for work with
younger children and "Proxy Par-
ents." The "Proxy Parents" will take
care of children in private homes
during the absence of adult members
of 'the family and will be paid for
their work at a rate of thirty cents
an hour. Transportation, when nec-
essory, will be furnished..
Women with speial talents, such
as singing, dancing, and story-tell-
ing, can give their services regularly
or :internittently to various groups.
The Girl Reserves, ii particular, need
the assistance of a woman interested
in ,narionettes. All supplies have
been promised to them and a leader
iall that is required.'
A new variety of work to be con-
ducted with the young people from
the high school is a series of dances
- which are planned to be held at the
YWC4 building. iniversity coeds
are wanted to act as combination
hostess-chaperones at these affairs
and see that everybody has a good

Perhaps it's because pouring molt-
en iron into molds in a foundry isn't
far different from pouring batter in-
to muffin tins, or hot gravy into 4a
gravy boat, when it comes to spilling.
Anyhow, 12 women moulders in an
automotive foundry are doing nearlyj
as good a job as their men predeces-
sors when-it-comes to production, and
are producing less scrap, according to
the auto industry's monthly Automo-
tive War Production.
Until now, it's explained, the foun-,
dry part of an automotive plant hasj
been considered strictly man's do-
main. Women moulders were out of
the question, partly because the'
weights to be lifted were too heavy
for them.'
But with the manpower shortage
what it is, and women proving adept
in other industrial jobs they never
before had tackled, one automotive
plant recently installed some weight
lifting machinery in its foundry.
Then employed women.
In many other ways, it's said, war
industry plants have been adjusting
things so women could take over
heavy mechanical machinery jobs.
Besides such mechanical aids as load
lifters, conveyors and chain hoists
have been installed. One plant put in
revolving jigs to help women riveters
rotate the heavy wing sections of
airplanes. The giant presses used in
forming automobile parts have been
equipped with safety devices, so wo-
men can handle them. And automa-
tic lift trucks are enabling women to
serve as stock handlers in several
And it's an ordinary thing these
days, it's said, to see women operat-
ing cranes. Women, too 'are driving
heavy trucks, working on drafting
boards in tool designing departments;
and sharpening cutting tools.

Revise Council
For Duration
War Committees To Be Set Up
In Dormitories, League Houses;
WAA, Assembly To Meet
In line with the general campus
trend towards a revised wartime
schedule, the independent women's
Assembly Board held its first regular
meeting Wednesday to set up a War
Activities Committee in each dormi-
tory and League house, according to
Doris Barr, '44, president.
Under the new system, each dor-
mitory and League house will have
their individual house war commit-
tee with a chairman chosen who -will
be responsible for house participa-
tion in war activities.
Assembly Enlarged
Assembly has been enlarged to in-
clude all nine dormitory presidents
representing Stockwell, Mosher-Jor-
dan, Adelia Cheever, Day, Geddes,
Hill, Ingalls, and Washtenaw Houses.
On Tuesday evening, the annual
Assembly's Fortnight Visitation Pro-
gram will take place. At this tine,,
members of Senior Society and the
executive Assembly Board will go
around to each dormitory to discuss
activities in the League and answer
questions in regard to the various
opportunities offered to women stu-
dents there.
Because there are 68 League hous-
es this year, it will be impossible for
the group to get around to each of
them. However, at 5 p.m. Tuesday,
Nov. 23, in cooperation with the
WAA, all of the League House presi-
dents and house athletic managers
will meet at the League to discuss
the new zoning plan to be put into
In keeping with the Assembly's de-
cision to become enlarged, eight more
Council members will be selected
from the sixty-eight house presi-
dents, one to represent each zone.
It is the intention of Assembly to
urge more and more independent
women to participate in war activi-
ties during the year.

flyt Sweet Old & Cetera
Enough of this drivel about "intellectuals!" Enough mysterious discus-
sion about "a boy I know," who's-head and shoulders over the rest of the
class because he "talks in terms of Plato." Enough of the awed tones, the
hushed admiration, the self-conscious reticence in the presence of the stu-
dent who has some unidentified link with Beauty and Eternity and all the
other capitalized abstracts,
What is this myth which has sprung up in Ann Arbor about "intellec-
tuas?' Who decided in the first place that someone was an "intellectual"
because he understood philosophy? Whose idea was it to set apart from the
others the student who read poetry with obvious relish? And who started
the rumor that the intellect-"the true intellet"-is expressed only in the
We Are All 'Intellects'
We are all of us "intellectuals"-the English major and the engineer,
the guy with an A in Philosophy 1,000and the girl with a C in Pol Sci L
We are intellectuals--and here the quotes may be dropped-because we are
learning a thing or two-We are intellectuals because, in the fulfillment of
our smallest assignments, we are using.our minds and our mental resources.
We areintellectuals because we are students.
And now the retort oomes back, "That's what you think." Yes, that's
what we think, We think so because we know that anyone who's here only
for purposes other than those academic doesn't belong here. He is not an
intellectual. We think so because more and more we've come to know people
whose interest in "ars, scientia, veritas" goes much deeper than the surface.
Has No Confinements
- - This ixitelectualism does not confine itself to the classroom. Nor does
it lurk alone in the hidden corners of the library. Nor does it refuse to
mingle with our daily activities. As long as five or ten girls can gather in
one room to discuss religion, as long as three English majors can collaborate
on the interpretation of an obscure line, as long as dinner conversation can
drift of its qwn accord over to the academic side-we are all of us intellec-
And oh the conversations whihh the "intellectual" has provoked! How
many."Intellectual" ears- must burn each day, each hour, each minute, as the
mystified student body takes to discussing the haunts and habits of this
exclusive dharacter.
llnough "f this slavery to "stereotyplsm"-enough of this respect for
reputation and rumor.. Our creative ability-our scientific curiosity-our
most sincere efforts-they are as nothing Utntil we have cast aside this mis-
conception and faced the next fellow in the knowledge that his intellect is
no more Intellectual than ours.
