Coeds Reach Total of 312 Hours
Working at University Laundry.

Ralph Wilson'


University women have contribut-
ed a total of 312 hours to working in
the University Laundry this semes-
ter, it was announced yesterday by
Peg Weiss, '4, personnel administra-
tor of the Women's War Council.
The totals, Miss Weiss said, are
highly satisfactory for the Summer
Term, since there are so few coeds
on campus. However, she added, the
laundry can still use more workers.
Pay is 53c an hour, and persons are
asked to see the secretary in the
laundry building to report for work.
Of the Pniversity women, Estelle
Olejarczyk worked the greatest num-
ber of hours for the semester, 45.
Glenna Workman ranks second with
37 hours, and Marjorie Mayer third
with 31.
Others who have contributed a
good deal of their time toward the
laundry are Dora Morgan, 29 hours;

Bomber money is now being used

hteI7e te
Time was when residents of the
West Quadrangle could dash through
the passageway to the Union tap-
room and have a coke without both-
ering to dress in any more than
shorts or pajamas.
Then came the war and girl
waitresses and after a few embar-
rassing encounters taproom cus-
tomers have learned to come fully
clad. At least for the duration.
When peacetime comes back to the
campus men waiters will again
take over the Union and coeds will
be allowed to enter this den of
masculinity only on rare occasions.
A for-men-only atmosphere still
prevails, however, despite the ap-
pearance of a few hair ribbons and
skirts and sweaters. The only women
who are allowed to be served in the
cafeteria or at the ,soda fountain are
employes. Man-sized portions of
food, including two rolls rather than
one, are still a permanent part of the
Informality is the keynote of
Union fun. Anyone is privileged to
take over the piano and beat out a
bit of boogey-woogey or a sym-
phonic melody. Music is not loved
by the customers alone. A skilled
pianist who is preparing for his
final recital in the School of Music
may be seen behind the serving

Dean's Office Is Being Forced
To Turn Down Fall Applicants
The most acute housing shortage
of recent years now faces University
women, according to an announce-
ment from the office of the Dean of
Women which states that the office
cannot assure any entering student
of a room in a University approved
Women who do not have definite
room arrangements for the coming
fall term are not encouraged to en-
roll in the University. "Never be-
fore have we been forced to be so
discouraging and we regret very
much the necessity of being so now,"
said Miss Jeannette Perry, Assistant
Dean of Women.
"We always want to welcome to
our great university all qualified
students who choose it for their alma
mater, but we do not feel that we
can hold out unjustified hopes which
might be disappointed when it would
be too late for you to enter another
college," the message continues.
Cadet Nurses Included
An enrollment increase of 650 wo-
men is anticipated by the office.
Four hundred of these will be regu-
larly-enrolled students, and 150 will
be holders of state scholarships
which have been granted by the Re-
gents of the University.
Included in the increased enroll-
ment is a group of 100 cadet nurses,
who will receive their training here,
under the sponsorship of the Fed-
eral Government.
Housing facilities for women are


being increased so far as possible,
Miss Perry announced, with the con-
version of many former fraternity
houses into coed residences. Nearly
all fraternity houses, with the excep-
tion of Psi Upsilon, are being taken
over by women, but these are already
filled. Waiting lists, according to
Miss Perry, are already too long.
AJl Dorms Filled March 1
The housing situation has been
made inelastic by t h e wartime
proximity to an, industrial cen-
ter. "In the past we were
able," Miss Perry said, "whenever
necessary to add to our list of ap-
proved rooming houses. But Ann
Arbor is a small city only nine miles
from the Willow Run bomber plant
and our local housing has been
largely preempted by war workers, so
that we can no longer expand our
University housing at will."
Local war industries have also
caused an acute shortage of all kinds
of help, the announcement con-
tinued, so it is impossible to serve
meals in the houses converted into
auxiliary dormitories.
Figures on the number of women
turned away from the university be-
cause of the housing shortage are
unavailable. It is known that all
University dormitories were filled by
March 1.

ERECTION of four new

The Chemistry Building
will be enlarged to extend
