It is the duty of every woman
now enrolled at the University of
Micligan to recognize her need
for training, and to accept that
training and education with a ser-
ious purpose and a sense of respon-
sibility. This is no time to come to
the "caMpus" and not to "college."
In her academic program and in
her social and extra-curricular ac-
tivities ,each women should make
her college experience significant.
Red Cross training and service, hos-
pital volunteer service, community
cooperation, and special volunteer
work to meet one of the serious
shortages are all important extra-
curricular opportunities. The work
in the classroom should serve two
purposes, that of providing special
background for a particular job and
that of gaining insight into the world

armed services, or that she became

filled rooms for long and windy bull

waste-baskets by careless fag fiends.
No more dashing out of the library

'Tiz a sad tale and one that will
cause much bitter weeping, but a
package of cigarettes is as hard to
find as a coed with a date. To bum
a cigarette these days is to ask the
ultimate in precious commodities.
Not that we won't be better off
without so many of the things. It's
just that whenever there was noth-
ing else to do, one could always light
up. Probably the best available sub-
stitute will be to go downtown and
get lit up.
Mothers used to cry in their soup
because their sweet, young daugh-
ters managed to pick up all the vices
they missed in high school at the
big, bad University. This year, how-
ever, would-be errant daughters will
not be able to pick up the vice of
cigarette smoking. They won't even
be able to pick up the butts.
And so we have cigarettes added
to the shortages of housing, liquor,
shoes and dark corners on campus.
Life becomes increasingly taid.

Prof. William A. Paton of the
School of Business Administration
was awarded one of three annual
distinuished service awards of the.
American Institute of Accountants,
meeting in St. Louis in mid-October.1
The award was for an article on
"Accounting Policies of the Federal
Power Commission," which appeared
in The Journal of Accounting, cited
as "considered the most significant
and valuable article on an account-
ing subject" in the past year.
Professor Paton is a member of
the committee on accounting pro-
cedure of the Institute, national pro-
fessional society of certified public
accountants. He is editor of the'
"Accountant's Handbook," author of
"Accounting Theory" and other stan-
dard text and reference books in the
field of accountancy and widely
known for his studies and reports in
connection with public utility rate
cases and investigations. He is a
past president of the American Ac-
counting Association, national organ-
ization of collegiate teachers of
In 1940, Paton was Dickinson Lec-
turer at the Harvard Graduate
School of Business Administration.
He has been an instructor in eco-
nomics at :the .University of Minne-
sota, and a vising professor at the
University of Chicago and the Uni-
versity of California. He is an active
member of the American Economic

Pat Coulter, vice-president and
personnel director, is in charge of
getting coeds to work for various
campus organizations, such as the
University laundry and the local
University-operated cafeterias, when-
ever paid or volunteer workers are
needed. Any organization needing
help may call on the office of the
personnel administrator to recruit
the required" help.
Other War Council members in-
clude the president of the Women's
Athletic Association, Shelby Dietrich,
the chief USO colonel, Ruth Edberg,
and the women's editor of The Daily.
The president of Panhellenic
Board, Peg Laubengayer, is also on
the Council, as is Florene Wilkins,
who heads Assembly Board. The
Council further includes the chair-
man of the Tutorial-Orientation
committee, Bette Willemin, and the
coed head of the Bomber Scholarship
organization, Marcia Sharpe.
Judiciary Makes Appointments
Judiciary Council, headed by Na-
talie Mattern, is the body which
makes the campus rules for women
. all rules regarding closing hours,
delinquencies, and the like. It is
also the body which subjects the of-
fenders to punishment when and if
the rules are violated.
Another important job carried on
by Judiciary Council is the interview-
ing of all women who are petition-
ing for campus activities jobs. "Ju-
dish" selects the women who show
the most promise and who have the
best ideas for carrying on activities
to head all projects, including War
Thus it is that a coordinating body
has been formed to direct women in
campus affairs, to recruit workers as
they are needed by other organiza-
tions, and generally to see that Uni-
versity women enter into a concen-
trated program of war activities for
Campus Canines Get
Best of Everything
In classes, in the "Quads," and
throughout the student organizations
the dogs have their day in Ann Arbor.
Several of the more fortunate of
the canines are fed in the Army and
Navy barracks, thereby gaining ac-
cess to the best food in town, and
the especially-privileged "Gunner,"
Navy-Marine mascot, even attends
dances in the Union Ballroom.
The history of campus mascots
begins in the local fraternity houses
and many of the houses included
solemn photographs of their mascots
with the chapter pictures. The war,
however, sent the dogs to the armed
forces with their masters.
One of the most interesting of the
Michigan Union's many traditions is
the story of its carved table tops.
Perhaps the coeds here on campus
who have never invaded the "sanc-
tum" of Michigan's men have never
seen them, but there is hardly a male
on campus who has noL scanned the
names carved on these table tops in
the Michigan Union cafeteria.
Each of these table tops tells a
story in itself. Many of Fielding H.
Yost's point-a-minute teams have a
table top hung along one wall. Their
records and names, carefullypre-
served, were carved at the turn of
the century. The Veterans of For-
eign Wars have carved one table top;
the 1944 NROTC unit, another.
This tradition was started long
before the present Union was erected.
Most of the round tables have come
from the Orient, famous saloon near
Wahr's of pre-prohibition days. In
1919, the present Union organization
bought the table-tops from the Ori-
ent and hung them on the walls of
the cafeteria. Since this time the
tradition has been carried on by
countless Michigan graduates.
