the coming year in commemoration
of its 25th anniversary as an active
organization on campus.
Activities for the coming year in-
clude a dance and musical program,

n dances.
The club, consisting of wives of
faculty members, in a recent meet-
ing to promote new membership, en-
rolled an additional 370 members,
bringing the total to over 1,400. The
club was founded by Mrs. Mary Le-

Marion Leroy Burton, in 1921. The
purpose of the organization is to
promote acquaintance and fellowship
among its members.
Officers included Mrs. Alexander
Grant Ruthven, president, Mrs.
Merwin H. Waterman, vice-president,
Mrs. R. H. Kingery, secretary, and
Mrs. John Sheldon, treasurer.
In supplement to general meetings,
the club is divided into sections which
meet monthly. Each member may se-

art history, bookshelf and stage,
bridge, interior decorations, music
and play reading.

Majors Receive
Broad Education
The Department of Anthropology's
work here at the University is not
so much the training of students to
become anthircpologists, as it is con-
tributing to their education as citi-
zens and human beings, according to
Prof. Leslie A. White, chairman of
the department.
In a recent interview, Prof. White
stated that the majority of an-
thropology concentrates never go on
with it after they graduate from col-
lege. For those who do plan to make
a career of anthropology jobs are
available. But to get very far in
this field, especially in teaching, a
PhD is necessary. Professionally,
Prof. White admitted, women are dis-
criminated against, but le believes
that they have a better chance of
success in anthropology than in some
other fields of science.
There is, he stated further, a
high percentage of successful wom-
en in anthropology professionally.
Most of the jobs for women in this
field are teaching jobs. Hunter
College, Wellesley College, Colum-
bia University, Brooklyn College
and London School of Economics,
to mention some, have employed
women as professors of anthropol-
Ruth Benedict, Gladys Reichard
and Marian Smith at Columbia and
Margaret Mead at the American
Museum of Natural History in New
York City are examples of women
who have achieved prominence in
anthropology. In our own Museum
of Anthropology here, the Oriental
Division is headed by Mrs. Kamar
A few years ago, the American
Anthropology Association elected
Elsie Clews Parsons to its presi-
dency. Prof. White does not know
of any other national scientific as-
sociation which has had a woman
as president.
"Competent, effective field work in
ethnology and archeology has been
done by women," Prof. White said,
"and many women have lived and
worked among savage and primitive
tribes." Bertha Dutton and Hulda
Hobbs of the Museum of New Mexico
organized an archeological expedi-

When we think of the great num-
ber of veterans who have returned to
school this fall, we rarely consider
that many of them are women. Miss
Flcrence Jhung, a former Wave, is
one of them who has come back to
Michigan to resume her studies
where she left off in June 1944.
Miss Jhung was in the Waves for
:1 months and received her boot
gaining in New York City. After that
=he attended the Aerographer's
Schcol in Lakehurst, N. J. She also
vorked for a while in Washington,
). C. and Memphis, Tenn.
Ueteorology Work
While in the service she did weath-
r work, closely connected with me-
teorology. At t h e Aerographer's
school in Lakehurst she was required
o attend classes from 8 a.m. to 5
).m., six days a week. Although her
iberty was quite limited, she found
time to go into New York, Washing-
ton, and Philadelphia. She was sta-
tioned there during the winter and
:ound the surrounding countryside
deal for tobogganing.
In Memphis she gave weather re-
>orts at the primary air base there.
There were two teletype machines in
-he weather office, and at Christmas
;ime the vital and imposing message
,ame through that "Santa Claus i-
racing the overcast!"


One of her most exciting experi-
ences was the time at boot camp
when she acted as SP during the
campaign tour of the late President
Roosevelt. Since she was so close, she
was able to catch a first-hand glimpse
of both him and Mrs. Roosevelt.
Made Many Friends
Miss Jhung joined the Waves be-
cause she felt she wanted to do some-
thing constructive and beneficial for
the war effort. She derived a great
deal of satisfaction out of serving in
the Waves and formed many firm
friendships. "We all had something
in common," she said, "and we had
no trouble in becoming acquainted.
I met all kinds of people from all
valks of life and made many new
Because of her interest in meteor-
>1ogy acquired through her months
>f service, she has decided to major
in it. Miss Jhung's home is in De-
troit, and she went to Michigan for
;wo years before she enlisted in the
Waves. "Aside from how crowded
The University is, it amazes me how
'ittle change there actually has been.
It certainly is good to get back to
school," she commented.
Mandarin styles, fashioned in
three-quarter lengths with high Chi-
nese collars, are leading the parade
for evening wraps.
