Coed War Workers Not Needed
Thoug roducion Increases
Women To Don Welders Shields, Goggles
If Nation Suffers Factory Labor Shortage


While a large proportion of the
' campus male population is re-
ceiving orders to report for physi-
cals and looking toward a future
in the Armed Services, coeds need
not worry, for the present at least,
about welder's shields and goggles.
Although war production is in-
creasing all over the United States
and some women are entering war
work, there is no emergency labor'
shortage yet to require very many
women to leave homes or school
to work in factories and offices.
Right now, according to the
most recent Census estimate,
there are more women working
outside their homes than at any
other time since V-J Day, and the
number is believed to keep on in-
creasing. But economists believe
that the number will not increase
sharply until war plants are ex-
Eligible Coeds
May Petition
IFor WAA Jobs.
WAA petitioning for Outing!
Club Manager will open today and
will continue through the week.
Interviewing will be held Octo-
ber 11 at the WAB.
Any eligible woman, except first
semester coeds may_ petition for
the position and may sign up for
an interview in the undergraduate
office of the Women's League.
" The Outing Club meets through-'
out the school year. Its activities
include hiking, skiing; tobaggan-
ing, cook-outs and various other

panded and the economy has
shifted even more from a peace-
time to a war-time basis.
If the war situation gets worse,
however, it may again be neces-
sary to turn to women for emer-
gency war work on the scale of
World War II.
This means that three million
found, many among young coeds
who, as they were in 1943 and 19-
44, would be willing to forego their
schooling. Other age groups will
be harder to recruit; there are al-
ready more women over 45 in the
labor force now than there were
during the war.
There is also a much larger
number of the women population
who are now married and have
children. Most of these 17 million
mothers would be out of the labor
market entirely, both of their own
wish and by national policy.
Married women already make up
more than half of the women's
labor force and perhaps more of
them, without young children,
would respond to another call for
war employment.
Few married women during
World War II worked apart from
their husbands unless their hus-
bands were in the Armed Services,
and even many of thees wives
moved about the country and took
temporary jobs as long as they
If there comes a time when
more war orders are received and
more war plants are being built,
the young women of the country
including the college crop, will be
called upon for emergency war

Modern dance is a contempor-
ary dynamic expression of art
form. Its growth has been encour-
aged by people who have grown
tired of the rigid forms of ballet.
Enthusiasts in the field describe
their art as the expression of the
feel of a certain thing rather than
trying to imitate this thing. Mo-
dern dance relies on original

Other competent members of
the club will assist Miss Pease
with instruction.
Several performances are given
a year. This serves as an incentive
for the students to do original
choreography as it provides the
opportunity for them to present
their own works before an audi-
ence. This also gives modern dance
enthusiasts the chance to see the

The old old proverb about dog
being man's best, friend carries
more truth than fiction on this
Evidently men are the only in-
habitants of this fair university
who merit the tender, affection-
ate, eternal love of a dog.
Weeping coeds can be seen
wherever good friends gather to
discuss the trials and tribulations
of college life. At the present time,
one of the topics is the fact that
women are not allowed to have
"Why," the girls lament, "why
do they typify us as hard-hearted

creatures who care nothing for the
devotion of a limpid-eyed, floppy-
eared canine?"
After all, since fraternities are
providing two Saint Bernards and
a Dalmation to wander around the
Diag, sleep on the library steps,
and generally trip anyonea who
happens to be in their way, natur-
ally the girls would like to reci-
procate in the same generous
Without a doubt the gentler sex
would give more time and energy
toward the care of the canine.
"We want a dog" has become
the battle cry of Michigan women.
