Women Offered WAC Commissions ~-~--1

7.' f

By MARY LETSIS
College women are being offered
direct commissions in the Wom-
en's Army Corps upon entering
the service from civilian life, for
the first time in post-war WAC
history .
The program has been set up to
select 61 women from the 13
states that compose the fifth Army
district, according to Capt. Jauni-
ta Biddle, WAC.

ALL APPLICATIONS must be
Chicago Train
Tickets Short
Students planning to take ad-
vantage of the reduced Christmas
vacation train fares to Chicago
were urged yesterday to get their
tickets at once by Dick Allen, '51E,
Vulcan train service chairman.
Allen said that the number of
Chicago tickets being offered by
the senior engineering honorary at
reduced rates are limited because
they are on a special coach on the
regular train. He said there were-
n't many tickets left.
Tickets are on sale daily from
2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Admin-
istration Bldg. A five dollar de-
posit will hold any ticket.
Keniston Named
Rhodes Scholar
Ann Arborite Kenneth Keniston
has been selected one of the 32
winners of the 1950 Rhodes Scho-
larship awards.
A 1947 graduate of Ann Arbor
High School, Keniston is a student
at Harvard University. He and the
other winners were selected from
a group of more than 400 out-
standing college students in the
country.
Keniston is the son of Dean Hay-
ward Keniston of the literary col-
lege.
Student Players
Call for Tryouts
Students wishing to try out for
positions on the promotions staff
of Student Players should report
at 7:15 p.m. today to the Union,
according to Stan Brown, '52, pro-
motions manager.
Those unable to attend may con-
tact Brown at 38264. Students are
needed for work on programs, pub-
licity and usher supervising.

and between the ages

Those selected will then be
sworn in as Second Lieutenants
and will be sent to Ft. Lee, Va.,
for basic training.
"In the Army, there is no such
thing as specialization," according,
to Capt. Biddle. "Any member is
supposed to be able to do anything
that is assigned. However, this
doesn't apply to technicians, such
as medics or bacteriologists."
"BEFORE A definite job is as-
signed to a WAC-commissioned of-
ficer, there are certain phases of
duty that she must learn," Capt.
Biddle explained.
"First is troop duty. A rewly
commissioned officer must have
experience in dealing with en-
Engineers' Club
Will MeetToday
The Ann Arbor Engineers' Club
will hold its annual business meet-
ing and election of officers at 7:30
p.m. today in Rm. 3S of the Union.
The local club now has mem-
bers representing practically all of
the industrial firms in Ann Arbor,
as well, as consulting engineers and
members of the University facul-
ty. Membership is open to anyone
engaged or interested in engineer-
ing.

listed personnel and learning the
'troop attitude.' Recruiting and
special service duties,-entertain-
ment for the troops, must be
served, too."
Newly commissioned Second
Lieutenants receive $213.75 base
pay a month. Added to this are
$42 for subsistence and $60 for
rental expenses. "All officers are
granted 30 days leave a year with
pay," Capt. Biddle emphasized.
* * *
"ALL MEDICAL and dental ben-
efits are free, of course, and the
retirement program of the service
is hard to beat.
"After 20 years of service as
a captain, base pay is $427.50 a
month. After retirement, one-
half of that amount, or $213.75
is guaranteed for life."
After joining the Army, any re-
cruit is subject to overseas service
at any time. "But the long list of
volunteers waiting to go overseas
makes it improbable that any
women will be sent without their
consent," Capt. Biddle pointed out.
"A woman's status as an officer
is permanent after she receives
her commission. She can resign
and go on inactive duty, but if a
national emergency is declared
and her services are needed, she
will be called."
Capt. Biddle will interview in-
dividual applicants today. Ap-
pointments may be made through
the Bureau of Appointments.
