Cooks at the ATO and Sig Ep
houses have been working extra
hard during the past week in at-
tempting to fatten up the men
with huge steaks and vitamin-
loaded vegetables.
The idea behind this all-out ef-
fort to build muscles and increase
strength is the annual ATO-Sig *
Ep tug of war. Thirty of the big-.>;;

"THE GREAT BIG hairy chest-
ed men" will attempt to snatch
away the title of champion rope
pullers from the Sigma Phi Ep-
silons who have been winners for
the past two years. They can suc-
ceed by dragging the Sig Eps in-
to the Huron in two pulls out of
The whole idea of the tug of
war began two years ago when
a major controversy arose over
Christmas trees. Such questions
as "what happened to the ATO
tree" and whose tree did the
Sig Eps have?" caused quite a
confusion which was further in-
creased when several other
houses on campus became in-
The ATO's and Sig E's, how-
ever, decided to settle the issue
by having a tug of war every
spring. The loser of the battle
must provide a Christmas tree for
the winning house the next year.
The tree is later donated to the
hospital. *
THE RIVALRY between the two
houses has become so great over
the tug that the men on each
side get together for practice be-
fore the event.

strategy of war games. It must
have proved a worthwhile idea
as, although outweighed that

A picnic for the two houses will
also take place in the afternoon
and evening tomorrow. Softball,
games and refreshments are a
part of the day's activities.

Vacationing Coeds May Find
Varied Opportunities for Jobs

Now that spring is here and
mid-terms are over, many coeds
are begining to think of what
they're going to do with three
months of free time.
This vacation time is a welcome
relief to many study-weary stu-
41, dents, as well as an excellent op-
portunity for exploring, learning
and turning classroom theory in-
to practice.
SUMMER JOBS vary in oppor-
tunity. Some will mean money in
the bank, some will mean room
and board-and fun, most will
give pin money, and many offer
nothing but experience.
Many coeds are headed for
beach and resort jobs this sum-
mer to .combine profit with play.
Off duty, students use the re-
creational facilities open to em-
ployees, which may include
swimming, horse-back riding,
fishing, and hiking. Most open-
ings for the inexperienced are
jobs as waitress, maids, or
kitchen helpers.
Journalism majors might wel-
come a job on a weekly small-
town paper, for the valuable prac-
tical experience.
* * *
SOME COEDS pick the public
library to learn about people and
books. Library jobs include cleri-
cal chores, or painting posters
and working on exhibits for those
with an artistic touch.
Hospitals are still under-
staffed, which means job open-
ings for volunteers, especially
good for students who plan to
make hospital work their ca-
reer. The greatest needs gener-
ally are for ward and clinic aids,
clerical workers, typists, lab and
dietitians' aids, and secretaries.
For the coed with a steady hand,
and good balance, a position of
waitress on the lake and river
lines may be chosen. This job af-
foirds scenic beauty plus pin
VACATIONERS who are handy
with a camera will probably head
for a photographic summer posi-
tion. Most openings will be found
as a photographer's assistant or
dark room technician.
Other openings might be
found as a photographer coun-
selor in summer camps or as
advisory consultant and record-
ing photographer for guests at
a vacation hotel.
For students who plan to travel

and explore, the American Youth
Hostel trips to Europe offer fine
opportunities for job experience.
Students help to repair dam-
aged hotels in France, Germany
and Holland as well as hosteling
in Scandinavia, the British Isles,
the Balkans, or southwestern Eu-
rope. This also provides a chance
to view international living.
