Met By Coeds
Women May Register Now
For Work; No Special Rate
Of Pay Set by University
Coeds interested in part-time
employment as baby sitters are
asked to register their names and
addresses in the Office of the
Dean of Women.
Forty-six women students have
already signed up for work. Help
is especially needed now for Sat-
urday afternoon, as the office has
had numerous requests for baby
sitters during football games.
List Compiled
Once a coed's name has been
registered in the Office of the
Dean of Women, it is placed on
a special bapy sitter's list, which
is given to all householders who
apply for their help. It is then up
to the householder to contact the
Wages should be discussed be-
tween the employer and baby sit-
ter in advance, as the University
does not set any special rate. The
reason for this is that baby sit-
ting can mean one thing in a
household where the sitter must
do such things as read to the chil-
dren, fix their suppers and put
them to bed, and another thing
where the sitter simply sits while
the children sleep..The rate of pay
should rightly differ in each case.
Also the majority of requests for
sitters come from married veteran
students who cannot afford to pay
high rates.
Late Permission Needed
Baby sitters are advised to make
arrangements for transportation
home before they begin work at
night. Late pemission needed for
baby sitting must be arranged in
advance with the Office of the
Dean of Women.
Coeds are allowed to accept as
many requests for baby sitting as
they can fit into their schedule.
Baby sitting is fast becoming
a popular method of earning
money for students all over the
country. Women are already meet-
ing competition in a once limited
field as male students are threat-
ening to take over.
Golf Club To Meet
The WAA Golf Club will hold
an organizational meeting at 5
p.m. today in the WAB.
Plans for this semester will in-
clude lessons, movies, and lectures
designed to help members improve
their game. Tournaments will be
played later in the season.
All women are eligible to attend
this meeting, including first se-
mester freshmen. Members of the
University Women's Golf Team
the also asked to attend, accord-
ing to Mary Cobane, club manager.
Anyone having questions may call
Miss Cobane at 2-4561.

ONE OF THE MAIN CAUSES of consternation among the male
critics of women's fashions on this campus is the way that some
of the coeds try to combine the old with the new.
Unintentionally they have defeated their own cause of promoting
a "new look." True, they have achieved some sort of a new look, but
just what it is, is a problem that has been worrying many a male these
The answer seems to be that in striving for this "new look,"
and at the same time trying to be practical, the coed has created
for herself a silhouette that appears to be the Frankenstein of all
fashion designers.
To properly appraise the silhouette of the new-styled woman on
campus you have to look twice, the second time to assure yourself that
those are legs and not stilts upon which she is standing.
HER SILHOUETTE no longer resembles that which fashion de-
signers describe as approaching a gracious figure eight, but instead
imitates most closely a cedar chest standing on end.
This appearance is the outcome of wearing longer skirt lengths
with flat-heeled, over-socked oxfords. A combination of this sort re-
moves the last traces of a curve from a women's legs, and is the most
effective means of driving any male toward a frustrated revolt against
Even Petty, a master in the art of feminine pulchritude, takes
no chances by drawing girls in their flat feet. When a leg no longer
has a curve to it, it becomes nothing more than- a means of sup-
To the average man on campus the new styles, as some of the
coeds are wearing them, are an infringement on his right to admire
pretty legs. If he is ever to be won over to the "new look," it will have
to be done by presenting the new fashions to him at their very best,
and this occurs only when the old reliable oxford is replaced by a
smart pump which accentuates the curve of the ankle.
Of course it is impractical for the coed to wear high heeled shoes
to class. The only answer to this situation is one that would drag out
last year's clothes for campus wear and save the new fashions for
extracurricular activities where they would be duly appreciated by
those who are now in such violent protest against them.
