By LEE KALTENBACH
Those campus Lotharios who
find the three to one ratio a per-
plexing problem may owe some of
their grief to the existence of the
Baby Sitting Bureau."
Yes, last semester 150 coeds
signed up to spend their after-
noons and evenings baby sitting
to earn some of that much needed
-The "Baby Sitting Bureau" is
located in the Office of the Dear
of Women and corisists of a list of
the names of coeds interested ir
working as baby sitters for faculty
members, married graduate stu-
dent couples and business people
in Ann Arbor. Last semester ovei
160 calls were received for sitters.
The women specify the time
they are available when signing
up. When the Office of the Dean
of Women receives a call from a
couple desiring the services of a
sitter, they give the party the
names of three sitters, one of
whom is usually able to accom-
modate the couple.
IF THE SITTERL proves effi-
cient, the couple will undoubtedly
call her again, and this often leads
to a more or lessdsteady job. The
amount of pay is discussed be-
tween employer and employee, us-
ually in advance, in relation to1
the required tasks.
The idea seems to be almost
historic on campus, although
the demand has now reached an
all-time peak. During the war
and immediately following, the
League conducted a volunteer
pilan whereby University women
offered their services as sitters.
"Baby sitting provides an ex-
cellent opportunity foraearning
money since the sitter can often
study at the same time and such a
job does not tie the women down
in advance," says Mrs. Mary C.
Bromage, Associate Dean of Wom-
IF THE EMPLOYER wishes the
sitter to . remain after closing
hours, late permission can be ob-
tained. Usually coeds are taken
home by their employer, according
( to . Mrs. Bromage. At least this
plan is suggested in advance.
