OKS ARE DECEIVING:
Women EngineersBSekRecogniti

By JOHN CAMPBELL
"Is she an engineer-she doesn't
look like on."
This remark, heard occasionally
>n campus,. might be regarded as
ihe ultima n in compliments by
women e7nmeers. For whoever
first classified University students
as "men, women and engineers"
failed to reckon with a little-pub-
licized orgization called the So-
iety of Women Engineers.
100 Per Centt Representative
Unlike rnny student organiza-
ions, the Society of Women En-
gineers can claim to be absolutely
pipesent, v since their member-
shl inclu s all 26 of the women
enrolled in the engineering col-
ege.
The purpose of the society, as
oxplained by Mrs. Thelma E.
Dyer, preset sponsor and .secre-
tary of the chemical and metal-
urgical engineering department,
s to provide assistance to under-
grad.uate vomen in their studies
nd orientation, to help them be-
come acquainted with professional
fields in w ich they are interest-
ed, and to bring the woman engi-
neer before the male public pre-
lininary t, taking a job under
'male supervision.
Unorthodox Dress
- Women engineers also seem to
take no little pride in not appear-
ing like the traditional campus
conception of the tie-less, coatless,
slide-rule clad male engineer.
The society meets twice a month
and endelvors to procure outside
speakers as much as possible, not
)nly for the information to be
gained but for the purpose of dem-
onstrating to them the existence

of an alert, interested and capable
group of women engineers.
The exact time and circum-
stances of the origin of the society
at the University of Michigan
seem to be shrouded in mystery.
but the best estimate available
places the age of the group on
campus at about six years.
Not Affiliated
The local society is not affiliat-
ed with the national organization
of women engineers. The possibil-
ity of becoming affiliated with,
the national society was seriously
considered last year but was re-
jected because of a feeling that
:he club as yet was not suffi-
ciently- active and organized.
The local society reflects a gen-
eral optimism that the traditional
prejudice in industry against wom-
en engineers may be on its way
out. Mrs. Dyer believes that the
chances for women in engineer-
ing are "better now than they have
been for a long time."
This improvement, she said, re-
sults partially from the impres-
sion created by women engineers
during the war when the man-
power shortage forced a great de-
nand for them in industry. Ac-
cording to Mrs. Dyer, at least one
employment interviewer asked
specificallynforwomen engineers.
Opening Wedge
Mrs. Dyer believes that aero-
aautics has been the opening
wedge in what was previously al-
most universal discrimination
against women engineers.
Sally Farquahr, president of the
society, when asked about the at-
titude of men toward women engi-
neers said "they'd better get used

to it." She admitted, however,
that her own professional career
will be brief as she plans to be
married upon graduation.
Frances Jenkins, on the other
hand, is pointed toward aero-
dynamic work with an aircraft
company upon graduation in Feb-
ruary. A liking for math and a
feeling that she should prepare for
a definite job induced her to take
engineering after three years of
liberal arts courses.
Aeronautics Does It
A high school course in aero-
nautics finally turned the tide for
Helen Striho. She transferred
from the literary college and is
mow a sophomore in the engineer-
ing college, interested particular-
ly in design.
"Her dad's influence" was one of
the main reasons Ann Lawrence
became interested in engineering.
Now finishing up her junior year
in the engineering math curricu-
lum, she had previously been en-
rolled in the Chrysler work-study
program but decided to speed up
her school education. Her particu-
lar interest is in higher mathe-
matics for advanced research.
Miller Succeeds Wilson

Richard Miller, '48E, was elect-
ed president of the Varsity Glee
Club to succeed Douglas Wilson,
who resigned recently.
Other officers of the club are:
David Carpenter, vice-president;
Cal Blair, manager; Richard Crys-
tal, assistant and stage manager
and Robert Pollack, secretary-
treasurer.
