With the need for a college de-

on the increase, the phrase "work-
ing your way through college" has
become applicable to women as
well as men.
Many . women now registered
in the University rely largely on
their own earnings to provide their
educational expenses. The Office
of the Dean of Women has out-
lined available resources to aid
coeds in financing a share of their
college costs.

of Representatives together with
the League Council.
The principal work of the board
rests in forming policies for women
on campus.

ALL WOMEN students are giv-
en a voice on the board because
of the democratic method of vot-
ing on policy changes.
Representatives from each resi-
dence bring a proposal before
their house and tabulate the
votes for and against it. If a
majority of the voters approve,
the motion is carried.
In this way, coeds have the re-
sponsibility of running their own

is the election of the members
of the executive board of the
League, the head of Judiciary
Council, and the members of

ed women's residences. Presidents

Women who major in physical
education have many opportuni-
ties for serving individuals and
the community.
Graduates are qualified for
teaching positions at all levels
from early elementary grades to
college. They may also enter ju-
venile work, where physical edu-
cation skills are used extensively,
especially in the prevention of
juvenile delinquency.
*. * *
munity, state and in youth or-
ganizations at a national level are
also open. Many scholarships are
offered for the additional train-
ing which qualifies physical edu-
cation majors for entering the
field of physical therapy.
In World War II many phy-

sical education graduates were
used extensively for work with
the U.S. Army. The Red Cross
also filled a number of positions
with majors in the field.
Even though graduates in phy-
sical education marry and make
no professional use of their educa-
tion, they have a background
which contributes to home and
family life.
