column featuring navy insignia,
the decorations will begin with

Vacationing Students
With Transportation
to help solve the transportation
problems of both vacationing and
homeward-bound students, the
Union has set up its Travel Ser-
Run free of charge, the service
has been planned as a meeting
ground where riders seeking rides
can obtain them and where driv-
ers can find passengers.
Committee members hope this
will be mutually beneficial to
both parties, for the riders can
save on transportation costs,
while the drivers profit by get-
ting passengers who will share
In taking advantage of the ser-
vice, drivers fill out blue cards and
riders fill out red cards. These slips
are available at the service head-
quarters in the Union main lobby
near the front entrance.
The boxes containing the cards
are cleaned out each day and all
cards are filed alphabetically ac-
cording to state. As each new
batch of cards comes in, they are
dated and subsequently filed in
that order. The service is thus put
on a first come, first served basis.
Matching the red and blue
cards, as soon as there are the
desired number of riders for a
driver, the Travel Service will
call the driver and report the
names and phone numbers of the
prospective riders.
After contacting the riders, the
driver is asked to inform the Tra-
vel Service whether he has too
few, enough or too many pas-
sengers. This information is re-
quested in order to insure against
one rider being matched up with
more than one driver.
So that riders and drivers may
see what cards are already in and
thus see what their relative
chances are, the committee has set
up a map in the Union lobby di-
rectly above the Travel Service
The service is available to any-
one living in or near Ann Arbor
and not only to students of the

Miss Mildred Webber of the Bur-
eau of Appointments.
After the foursprofessors tell
what types of jobs are available
in the various fields of the hu-
manities, Miss Webber will out-
line specific job opportunities
available to graduates.
After the panel discussion the
group will split up into four sec-
tions dealing with speech, Eng-
lish, history and languages. Each
of the groups will be headed by
one of the professors taking part
in the panel.
* , *
IN EACH group, there will alsoI
be 'graduates working in the field$
who will give an account of their
personal experiences in their jobs
and offer advice and suggestions
to the students.
The graduates and professors'
will also answer any specific
questions the women may have
about the various fields.
The idea for this and future
conferences grow out of sugges-
tions made at the League Work-
shop this fall. Recognizing the fact
that many women come to the
University without knowing exact-
ly what type of work they will be
doing, the group set out to pro-
vide students with an opportunity
to learn more about opportunities
in specific fields.
This first conference is centered
around job opportunities in the
humanities and future conferences
