will be the objects of a satire at
this year's Crease Ball, annual
Law School formal, which will be
held from 9 p.m. to 1 a. m. Friday,
April 29 at the Union.
The legal satire, which will be
the theme of the dance, will in-
clude a "raw revue," derived from
the more familiar "law revue."
The host of Latin phrases which
form a part of the lawyer's vo-
cabulary will be in for similar
treatment.
Crease Ball is given by the Bar-
rister's Club. Attendance at the
dance, which will be either formal
or semi-formal, is limited to law
students and their dates.
Frank Tinker's orchestra will
provide music for the formal. Wo-
men attending are granted 1:30
permission.
Tickets may be obtained from
Lloyd Eisenhower and David Mor-
ton. Others in charge of the
dance include: Lorne MacDonald,
chairman; Jack Reinhardt, as-
sistant chairman; Milton Filius

Fraternities To Combine
Efforts Constructing City;
Displays To Win Trophies
Waterfront scenes will be the
theme of the booths erected by
the fraternities for the 18th an-
nual IFC Ball to be presented from
9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday, May 6 at
the Intramural Building.
Two fraternities will combine
their efforts in each individual
booth construction. There will be
a total of 21 booths, each one be-
ing 22.4 feet wide, at least 11 feet
high and 15 feet deep.
* * *
BOOTHS MAY be constructed
of plywood, masonite or press-
board. Electric signs and flash-
ing lights may add detail to the
decorations.
The effect of the whole theme
will be a small city built on a
waterfront. Some suggestions
for booth construction are: a
soup kitchen, a warehouse, a
fish market or a seamen's em-
ployment office. Fraternities, by
uniting, will make it a better
dance since their booths will be
the main part of the decora-
tions.
Six trophies will be awarded for
the three best booths, an identi-
cal trophy being given to tfie two
fraternities combining their ef-
forts in the construction. These
trophies will be donated by local
merchants.
Judging the displays will be Se-
ger H. Slifer, a prominent Michi-
gan alumnus; Dr. Carl D. Shep-
pard, of the fine arts department;
and Prof. Harry Bouchard of the
engineering college. Governor G.
Mennen Williams will present the
trophies.

portunities for women. Problems in
choosing a vocation and methods of
getting employment will be discus-

By JEAN RUSS
Some concrete recommenda-
tions by Mrs. Mary Edlund, New
York job consultant and employ-
ment expert, especially aimed at
those who .will face the employ-
ment problem after graduation,
were given in an interview last
week.
Her firstsadvice toa prospective
applicant is that she analyze her
own assets. "Realize what you
have to offer to the employer that
will benefit him financially."
She warns against emphasizing
only the fact that the job-hunter
wants the job in question. "Look
at the situation from the employ-
er's point of view, see what you
have that he needs. Use a little
practical psychology.'
* * *
AS THE SECOND step in find-
ing employment, one can list those
assets in a concrete manner, "List
Staff Members
Attend Convention
Three staff members of the
Women's Physical Education De-
partment have been in Boston this
week attending the 54th annual
convention of the American As-
sociation for Health, Physical Ed-
ucation and Recreation.
Those who went to the meeting
are Prof. Laurie E. Campbell, in
charge of the teacher education
program in the department; Miss
Ruth Harris, head of corrective
work and Miss Fritzie Gareis, in-
structor in general sports.

the most important things you
have to offer the desired job first.
Prove that you can do what' you
want to do by backing up your
statements with things that you
have done-summer jobs, extra-
curricular activities, and grades."
"Include personal informa-
tion, references, an new ideas for
the job. Let your whole resume
represent you and what you can
do. .Don't be overmodest, but
back up your abilities with past
experience.'"
After making a resume the next
step is to send "shotgun" letters
to prospective employers. These
are letters stating your qualifica-
tions, as outlined in the resume,
asking for interviews.
* * *
LETTERS scattered throughout
the business in which you are in-
terested act like pellets of shotgun
fire. Some hit but the majority
of them will not. The reason for
a shotgun letter is that some will
make their mark and interviews
will result."
According to Mrs. Edlund,
giving a good interview is an art,
but one which can be cultivated
by anyone. "Cold" interviews,
those without a letter or tele-
phone call in advance will sel-
dom bring results. Something
is usually needed to give the
employer preliminary informa-
tion about the applicant. Shot-
gun letters can do this.

"One excellent device to make
an applicant stand out from the
crowd," Mrs. Edlund said, "can
be a cleverly devised scrapbook
which presents concrete evidence
of the ability of the person being
interviewed." This scrapbook may
contain letters of recommenda-
tion, information on jobs pre-
viously held, personal facts, and
samples of the applicant's work.
School and college records may
also be included, but only relevent
detail.
As a last word of advice, Mrs.
Edlund states, "Don't be afraid
to use "pull". Personal contacts
help introduce you to the business
world. An applicant who has been
recommended by someone known
to the personnel of the company
will be hired before another with
equal ability."
"Personal information on the
interviewee's habits and possibili-
ties are easier to obtain in this
way. Don't shy away from culti-
vating useful contacts. They may
give you the extra inch that counts
someday."
Mrs. Edlund speaks from exper-
ience. She and her husband, Sid-
ney Edlund, founded the Mari-
marketing Clinic, a non-profit or-
ganization sponsored by business-
men which helped thousands to
employment success. Together
they wrote a factual reference
book on employment problems,
"Pick Your Job and Land It!"
