Mrs. Jane McConell Will Speak
To Coeds Interested in Nursing

I

1 S

Y

Mrs. Jane Foster McConnell, a
member of the college counseling
staff of the National Nursing Coun-
cil, will be at the League tomorrow
.and Friday to speak to women inter-
ested in entering any phase of the
nursing profession.
Those coeds, regardless of class,
who wish information regarding
nursing are urged to make an ap-
pointment to see Mrs. McConnell at
the Office of the Dean of Women.
She will have facts about all schools
of nursing connected with colleges
and universities offering a degree, as
well as information on the U. S. Ca-
det Nurse Corps.
On Thursday evening, she will
speak to the Washtenaw County
Chapter of the National Nursing
Council, of which Dean Lloyd is
chairman.
Openings now and after the war in
nursing offer unprecedented opportu-
nities for young women with advanc-
ed preparation, according to Mrs.
McConnell. As evidence that college
women are responding to the chal-
lenge, she points to the fact that they
form twice as large a percentage Of
new student nurses today as ten years
ago.
Mrs. McConnell received her pro-
fessional training at Yale University
School of Nursing, and has served
as director of the Red Cross Volun-
teer Nurse's Aide Program.
Swim Tryouts
To Be Saturday
In Union Pool
Because of numerous requests, the
Swimming Club, which has just, re-
opened this semester, has found it
necessary to form a second, more ad-
vanced group, according to Rita Auer,
'46, manager of the club.
Tryouts, which will take place at
10:15 a. m. Saturday in the Union
Pool, and will continue until 11:30
a.m., are necessary for placement in
the club. Women entering will be
judged on their strokes, speed, and
general form. Requirements for the
advanced section are: one length of
the pool at a crawl, one length of the
pool at a sidestroke, and one other
length at-any stroke the coed wishes.
In addition she must also be able to
do a straight forward dive off the
edge of the pool.
"While some women are bound to
be more advanced than others, we
still have room for anyone interest-
ed in swimming to come out for the
sport. Every woman applicant will
be placed in one of the two groups,
either the intermediate or advanced,"
Miss Auer continued.
Plans for the coming year include
practice in strokes and diving as well
as some beginning ballet work for
the intermediate group. The ad-
vanced section will concentrate more
on ballet work, with some speed rac-
ing added.
This year is the first season that
the swimming club has had the use
of the Union Pool, and will give
many of the women on campus a
chance to engage in this sport dur-
ing the winter months. Towels and
bathing suits may be either rented at
the Pool or the swimmers may bring
their own.

Original SongI
Wins Acclaim
Wolkowski, Fisher Copyright
New Ballad for Publication I
A new ballad entitled, "Too Late,"
written by University students, made
its debut at the Union Formal last
Saturday night.
The tune was composed by Ruth
Wolkowski, '45SM, two years ago.
One night last spring, Miss Wol-
kowski was pounding out the tune
on a dilapidated, piano in one of the
women's league houses for her friend
Marjory Fisher, '46L. As seldom hap-
pens to most of us. the catchy: tuneI
suggested lyrics to Miss Fisher and
the music became a ballad.
When the lyrics and music hed
gotten together, "Too Late" was
sprung on the girls in the league
house who adopted it as their theme
song.
This term, "Too Late" was sung at
an open house at the Hillel Founda-
tion where it again struck a respon-
sive chord. This convinced the girls
that they had "something on the
ball" and the song was "married"
with a copyright.
Miss ,Fisher and Miss Wolkowski
are interested in getting "Too Late"
published to show just what students
can do.. They conceived the idea of
getting Billy Layton to feature the
ballad at the Union dances, and if
the song was really a hit, they would
like to get it petitioned by University
students to be played by:Fred Waring
or some other nationally known or-
chestra that features college songs.
Candidates for the positions of
Personnel Administrator and two
War Activities Chairmen on the
Assembly Council may bring their
petitions to interviews no later
than 5 p. m. today in the Kalama-
zoo Room of the League.
These candidates will become
permanent members of Assembly
Council and will work conjunc-
tively with them throughout the
remainder of the current fall and
spring semesters.

Coeds Learn
Mechanics
By STASIA ZAVLARIS
"Hey, toss me a wrench," might
easily have been one of the feminine
cries heard between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.
Tuesday from the workshop of the
Ann Arbor High School, where coeds
interest'ed in becoming members of
the Red Cross Motor Corps will be
attending a six week course in
mechanics.
The mechanics course, plus stan-
dard and advancedufirst aid courses,
is a prerequisite for Motor Corps
duties and will be taught by Mrs.
Harriet Batterson and Miss Virginia
Schumacher, both skilled in motor
mechanics work. Arrangements for
the first aid courses will be made
after the mechanics course has been
completed, so that preparation for
work in Motor Corps will not inter-
fere too much at one time with any
woman's academic obligations.
Michigan Driver's License
After successful completion of
these three courses, a coed may se-
cure permission for driving from
Assistant Dean of Students Walter
B. Rea, and after presenting a health
certificate, showing that she is physi-
cally capable of the work, passing a
sheriff's driving test, and giving
proof of citizenship, she may become
a Probationary member of Motor
Corps, provided that she holds a
current Michigan driver's license.
A woman serving as a Probationary
member is asked to volunteer as
much time as possible to become
familiar with the routine of work.
As soon as she has completed 50
hours of Corps work she is admitted
as a regular member, and permitted
'to wear the regulation Motor Corps
uniform and pin.
Office in North Hall
Regulars must sign up for at least
%f day a week, during which they
remain at the office in North Hall
and fulfill any calls for service which
come in while they are on duty.
