Among the faculty and graduate
women on campus who are doing re-
search in little-known fields is Dr.
Elinor Husselman, Curator of Manu-
scripts and Papyri at the University
Dr. Husselman transcribes and
translates ancient papyri for publi-
cation. These documents from the
old Graeco-Roman period were dis-
covered by archaeologists and others
at the sites of ancient civilization of
the Hellenistic period.
Papyri are formed by splitting a
reed into thin sheets and pounding
two sheets together to form a pa-
per-like substance. They are writ-
ten in Greek or Coptic, which is
Egyptian written in the Greek
The papyri come in rolls or book
form. As papyri are acquired, Dr.
Husselman decides which form they
were originally in. Rolls are only
written on one side of the sheet while
books are written on both. They are
mostly legal documents, and a few
of them are Christian literature.
With Dr. A. E. R. Bak of the
University of Michigan, and Dr. W.
. Edgerton of the University of
Chicago, Dr. Husselman published
the second volume of "Papyri from
Tebtunis." This book contains the
original Greek and the English
translation of several papyri.
Dr. Husselman was elected a mem-
ber of the Women's Research Club
for her work in papyrology. She re-
ceived her AB and doctor's degree in
Greek at the University of Michigan.

Coeds Live in Private Homes,
Provide Household Assistance
By M. J. TUTTLE
Providing household assistance in
return for room and board offers an
excellent opportunity for women stu-
dents to earn the "lion's share" of
their college expenses and at the
same time help ease the critical
housing shortage in Ann Arbor.
At present there are 38 University
students living in private homes and
earning their room and board in re-
turn for a definite schedule of house-
hold help. Each woman spends 45
minutes a day doing housework for
her room and an additional 45 min-
utes for each meal. If all meals are
eaten at the home, a total of 21
hours a week is required.
Many of these coeds live in fac-
ulty homes near campus, and have
rooms equipped with desks and
other conveniences for studying.
Single rooms with baths are often
available. The greatest demand for
household assistants comes from
homes with children, and several
evenings 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 coopera-
tive working agreement between the
housewife and the student. The work
is often not so strenuous as an out-
side job, and no time is wasted going
to and from work.
The success of this cooperative
working agreement depends upon the
personal adjustments between the
student and houshold. Such details
as use of the telephone, entertaining
callers, laundry privileges, work
schedule, and closing' hours should be
discussed in advance.
In order that women living and
working in private homes may have
an opportunity to make social con-
tacts, Suomynona was organized.
This group provides an opportunity
for women living in private homes
to meet each other, and coeds work-
ing for room. and board are urged to
take advantage of its services. Wom-
en working for room and board or-
ganized the Underwriters Group last
year, and a social rieeting is being
planned to reorganize the group.
Any women students who are in-
terested in working for their room
and board are urged to contact the
Office of the Dean of Women for a
personal interview. The Office is al-
ready receiving requests for women
to live and work in private homes
for the spring semester.

To Retire Friday
Mrs. Estelle Blackburn, matron at
Barbour Gymnasium, will retire Fri-
day after almost 40 years of service.
Since her appointment in 1907,
Mrs. Blackburn has been in charge
of such assignments as servicing the
lockers and dressing rooms, check-
ing women's purses, being responsible
for the dishes and silverware for the
alumni reunion luncheon, and acting
as librarian for the physical educa-
tion department. She was selected as
matron. by the late Mrs. Myra Beach
Jordan, former dean of women, and
has served in the same capacity con-
tinually since that time.
One of Mrs. Blackburn's chief in-
terests is the cultivation of flowers.
A bouquet invariably appears on her
desk each morning, and brightens
the atmosphere of the Barbour Gym
Mrs. Blackburn lives at 508 N.
Fifth Ave. in Ann Arbor. Her retire-
ment does not go into effect until
Nov. 30, but she will begin her ter-
minal leave Friday. A reception was
given in her honor last night by the
members of the physical education
cN, and /
Men will not be required to dress
in formal attire, and out-of-town
women guests will be permitted to
wear short dresses. The event will
be the last of the only two dances1
to be presented in the Intramural
Building this semester, and because
it is a benefit affair, Miss Petit ex-
pressed the hope that, "It will gain
the whole-hearted support of the
student body, since it will provide an
evening of enjoyment for them, as
well as enable them to contribute to
a worthy cause."
