Women college graduates should
not feel that their diploma is the key
to an executive position in the busi-
ness world, for they will have to
compete with veterans and women
trained in special skills, is the ad-
vice offered by the Office of the Bu-
reau of Appointments.
Many organizations which em-
ployed women during the war are now
giving preference to veterans, and
company training programs for-
merly open to women are in many
cases now restricted to men.
A knowledged of shorthand and
typing are a prerequisite for the
majority of job openings in busi-
ness. There are many openings for
women who know shorthand. and
have a college background in a
particular field. Companies often
want employees who have majored
in economics, business administra-
tion, or political science, for this
indicates an interest in the busi-
ness field
University-trained women are ex-
pected to learn rapidly and to prog-
ress, but they must not expect to
start at the top. Although employ-
ers expect more of college graduates,
they object to college women start-
ing in a top position because they us-
ually only plan to work a few years.
There are definite shortages of
workers in several fields which are

Women Graduates Should Expect Keen
Competition in Businss, Political Fields

open to women. Teachers and lab-
oratory technicians are needed in
many parts of the country. Be-
cause of the rapid turnover, air-
lines are looking for women to
train as stewardesses. Civil service
opportunities are open equally to
men and women. Secretarial work
is an excellent field for college
Women who are interested in
working in a particular part of the
country, in a particular company,
or in a special field may apply at the
Bureau of Appointments. If there
are no openings on file, the Bureau
tries to reach particular companies
which do not hunt employees and
find out if there are any jobs avail-
Registration for employment at the
Bureau is now being held, and June
and February graduates may apply
for jobs.
All women who would like to
work on the League House Dance
committees may sign up today
and tomorrow on the sheets post-
ed in the Undergraduate Office of
the League.

Adventures in New Environment






Now is the time for all good jazz fans to head
our way, because our shelves are loaded with
new Commodores and Bluenotes. Billie Hol-
liday repeats on "Strange Fruit," and "I'll Get
By," while wowing her public with a new
"She's Funny That Way" with Eddie Hey-
wood. Speaking of Heywood, his Blue Lou"
and "Carry Me Back To Old Virginny" is
something to talk about. Muggsy Spanier and

"Baby, Won't You Please Come Home." Or
how about "Rockin' at Ryans" with "Hot

715 North University, Phone 3542
North End of the Diagonal - Ann Arbor

Walking down the corridor of
graduate students' rooms in Mosher
Hall, one would be sure to hear com-
ing from behind the door of Rm. 136,
the chatter of Chinese and occasional
merry laughter. This is the room of
Miss Sylvia Shu-lien Tsai from Fu-
kien, China, and Miss Jin Yuan Yang
from Wu-Chang, Hupeh, China.
Both are on Barbour Scholarships,
Miss Tsai doing graduate work in
chemistry, and Miss Yang, in English
literature. Miss Tsai graduated from
Hwa Nan Women's College in Foo-
show, China, and then taught there
for five years before taking gradu-
ate work at Nanking University. She
received her scholarship in 1945, but
was unable to get passage to the
United States until this year.
Miss Yang graduated last year
from National Wu-Han University
Wu-Chang, China. Her father is
dean of the University and her
mother is an instructor of English
Dr. Lucy Wang, the president of
Hwa Nan College, was once a Bar-
bour Scholar also, so through her
Miss Tsai learned about the oppor-
tunities offered here. On July 18 she
flew from Chungking to Shanghai
and from there took a boat to San
Francisco. It was on the boat that
she met Miss Yang, her future room-
mate. The two were separated when
they reached the United States, but
were reunited in Ann Arbor.
Miss Tsai went on to Chicago
where she visited some friends. She
saw all the places of interest there,
but what impressed her most was
that "there are so many cars and
so many women driving them!"
There are very few automobiles in
China, and most of them are driven
by chaufferurs. The great num-
ber of cars does have its disad-
vantages, though, she discovered,
when she and her friends couldn't
find a place to park downtown!
Before coming to Ann Arbor Miss
Yang spent some time in New York.


She visited the Empire State Build-
ing and noticed how proud New York-
ers are of it. What impressed her
very much was that Americans as a
rule don't pick up anything that
doesn't belong to them and that
they are very punctual.
Miss Yang worked with the
China National Relief and Reha-
bilitation Administration in coop-
eration with the UNRA and found
the work very interesting. She
worked with the Department of
Health compiling tables of demands
from hospitals which applied for
additional medical supplies and
hospital beds.
Meeting again in Ann Arbor, the
two Chinese students wandered
around campus together, and "we
sometimes got lost too," they admit-
ted. Miss Tsai remarked gratefully,
"I noticed that Americans are very
polite to foreigners. We feel perfect-
ly at home, and it makes it easier to
get along in the dormitory."
Miss Tsai finds Ann Arbor a
very beautiful town. She likes the
chimes in the Tower and especially
when they play music. Miss Yang
was impressed with the trees and
the changing colors of their leaves.
She finds the classes here conduct-
ed on about the same level as those
of her alma mater, but the social
life there is not as lively as it is
here. This is partly due to the fact
that the Chinese people are under-
nourished, and therefore not very
Miss Yang is studying various
courses in English literature and is
also taking Russian. Both she and
Miss Tsai speak English, since it
was a required subject in high school,
but when they are alone in their
room, they find themselves convers-
ing gaily in their native tongue.
