Room, Board
May Be Earned
By 'U' Women
Women students who are intereste
in living in private homes and provid
ing household assistance in return fo
their room and board are urged t
contact the Office of the Dean o
Women as soon as possible for a per
sonal interview.
At the present time there are 4
coeds working for their room an
board. Most of these live in facult;
homes near campus, and have room
equipped with desks and other con
veniences for studying. They are no
only earning the "lion's share" o
their college expenses, but are helpin
to ease the critical housing shortage
Booklet Explains Work
"Underwriting Your Own Educa
tion," published by the University, ex
plains the details of this, type of wor
and may be obtained at the Offic
of the Dean of Women.
Each woman spends 45 minutes pe
day doing housework for her room
and an additional 45 minutes for each
meal.
If all meals are eaten at the home
a total of 21 hours per week is re-
quired. The greatest demand for
household assistants comes fro
homes with children, and several eve-
nings a week are spent at home by
arrangement with the housewife.
Services in the home may include
dishwashing, cooking, and vacuum-
ing, and there is usually a cooperative
working arrangement between the
housewife and student. The work is
often not as strenuous as an outside
job, and there is no time wasted going
to or from work.
Suomynona Aid
One possible disadvantage of living
in a private home is that the student
may miss some social activities, unless
she makes a special effort to make
friends in her classes. Suomynona
was organized for the purpose of pro-
viding an opportnuity for women liv-
ing in private homes to meet each
other, and it is urged that coeds
working for room and board take ad-
vantage of its services.
. The success of this cooperative
working arrangement depends upon
the personal adjustments between the
student and household. Such details
as the use of the telephone, enter-
taining callers, laundry privileges,
work schedule, and closing hours
should be discussed in advance.
This type of work is familiar to
women who have helped with house-
work at home, and especially to those
who have younger brothers and sis-
ters. A strong attachment is often
formed between the student and fam-.
ily, and many coeds live in the same
home for the entire four years.

Deadline Is Se
For Collection
Of Gift Boxes
d Four more shopping days remai
- for campus "groups to send gifts t
r soldiers confined to Percy Jones hos
o pital.
f Every women's residence is respon
- sible for donating one or more boxes
All Christmas boxes are due not late:
1 than 5 p.m. Monday in the Socia
d Director's office of the League.
y Quality of gifts and not quantity
s should be considered in choosing
Christmas gifts for the patients.
t Veterans at Percy Jones indicated
f in a poll that they prefer one sub-
g stantial gift such as a billfold, key
case or leather belt rather than a
number of smaller items. Pens, pen-
- cils, toilet kits, knives, watch straps,
box cameras and bed lamps are
k other gifts that the men would like
e to receive.
All of these gift suggestions are in
r a three to four dollar price bracket
, The minimum cost of each box ha
been set at two dollars and none of
the gifts should amount to more than
four or five dollars.
It is important that the contents of
r each box be marked on the outside
to prevent such accidents as giving
a watch strap to a veteran without
an arm. If the contents are not in-
dicated the package will have to be
opened and re-wrapped.
eIn choosing and wrapping gifts.
-donors should take the same care that
they would in sending a Christmas
gift to a relative or friend. Boxes
wrapped in bright paper and ribbons
add Christmas spirit to the gift in-
side.
A personal touch may be added to
the presentation by enclosing a greet-
ing card with the signatures and ad-
dresses of the donors.
Party, Formal
Wilt Be QWen
The Michigan Christian Fellowship
will hold an "old-fashioned Christ-
mas party" at 7:30 p.m. Friday in

A special feature of the evening
will be a grab bag of toys which are
to be given to underprivileged chil-
dre. The maximum price for the
toys has been set at $.25. All Uni-
versity students are welcome.
* * *
Betsy Barbour residents will hold
their annual Christmas dance from
9 p.m. to midnight Friday at their
dorm.
Edwin Woodward and his band will
play for the formal and the Christ-
mas theme will be carried out with
decorations of holly and mistletoe,
centering about the traditional Betsy
Barbour Christmas tree.

Matt Aronson, also of Pittsburgh.

versity, is a member of Sigma Delta
Tau Sorority.
Mr. Aronson was recently dis-
charged from the United States Army
Air Forces and is now attending the
University of Pittsburgh.
Are you in "the know?" If you
still sling to baggy sweaters you are
definitely pre-1945. Catch up with
the times. Tuck that sweater in,
quick-like, and add a wide belt with
an oversized buckle. Or try a leather
sash tied in the front. Sloppy Joe is
dead. Long live Sleek Sue.

Fishermen's nets may be used in
coed's rooms to replace the traditional
bulletin board to hold pictures and
souvenirs. They hold more articles,
and will cover more wall space.

By JEAN WHITNEY
WITH Christmas only days away,
frenzied coed, buried deep be-
neath mid-semesters and "guizes"
begins to get panicky as she realizes
that she has yet to do her Christmas
shopping.
A good solution to the query of
"What shall I get her for Christ-
mas?" will be gloves, which is some-
thing every woman can always use.
Gloves ranging from long white
French kid to everyday pigskins are
available.
Creamy smooth handsewn kid, the
perfect complement to a calfskin or
alligator bag, are very ladylike and
come in brown and black. lace leath-
er in jet black is sleek and suave
looking. Also seen is a soft capeskin
glove, long enough to be worn wrin-
kled at the wrist.
DOESKIN is another type of leath-
er glove which is very attractive.
These may be had in a variety of
styles, including a short glove with
dog-eared cuff. This clever feature
shows a double color scheme of black

with white or fuschia, blue with pink,
or chartreuse with fuschia. It also
comes in plain black.
Designers now are creating gloves
with a dressmaker look that har-
monizes with dress fashions. Many
of these have unusual cuffs that can
be worn over suit and dress sleeves.
Dashing gauntlets have this type of
cuff. They are copied from hunting
and riding gloves of members of the
French courts and boast of a scroll
pattern on the cuffs.
EMBROIDERED gloves of fine kid
or suede easily double for after-
noon or evening wear. Fagoting,
corde embroidery, leather lacing,
and contrasting applique motifs are
a few of the details which make for
unusually feminine gloves. Single
corded shirring up the back of the
glove or diamond shape cut-outs in
the cuff are attractive novelty styles.
These are available in street shades,
neutrals, and a few bright colors.
Long rayon jersey evening gloves
come in an array of colors ranging
from soft pastel shades to practical
black or white. A variation of this
style is a long rayon jersey glove with
hand-painted flowers which serve to
dress up an otherwise simple outfit.
