.Don't let th'e byline scare you!
'This little treatise is designed to give
you neophytes some hints on how
you can roll up an impressive aver-
age, and still have a bang-up good
time at Michigan.
That may sound like burning the
candle at both ends to some of you,
but it is really quite simple when you
get the hang of it. Before I pursue
the subject farther, let me state
emphatically that I disagree heartily
with those who say that college is a
place for work and not play, it is the
place for both.
The .experiences and friendships to
be gained from extra-curricular ac-
tivities and other recreation stack up
pretty well alongside the more intel-
lectual pursuits in their value to the
individual. Either one alone, how-
ever, seems to create a rather shal-
low personality.
The most important thing is to get
off to a good start. You'll probably
probably get a few assignments your
first day in class, so instead of spend-
ing fifteen minutes hanging out your
window watching the B-24's, spend
the time getting your assignment out
of ,the way. Most of the early assign-
ments are short, and if you nibble
away at them as they come along,
you won't have the whole cheese to
eat the night before an exam.
Use Those Free Hours
you may find yourself with a
schedule with free hours here and
there between classes. These provide
excellent opportunities to go to the
library and get a little work out of
the way, preferably work for the
class you just got out of, not the one
you go to the next hour !
Eventually you may be able to
discipline yourself so you can go
alone to a local drug store and drink
a, coke while you study during the
h1our. Utilizing your odd hours dur-
ng the day has the advantage of
leaving your late afternoons and
your evenings free for chats with
your friends, activities or an occa-
sional nmovie.
Cutting classes is a matter for the
individual to settle for himself, but
I wouldn't recommend it except in
cases of dire nece'ssity. Attending
class has many benefits other than
the assimilation of the professor's
words of wisdom. It creates a good

impression and may get you the B
instead of the C if you're on the bor-
der line. It also helps in getting, a
makeup if you really are sick some
time during an exam.
Notes Important
You'll find it a tremendous advan-
tage if you know how to take, good
notes. If you take Slosson's History
11 or 12, you'll be off to a fine start.
but here are a few suggestions which
have proven helpful to many, for
those of you who aren't interested in
Use an outline-essay form, getting
the main points and sub-points down
and filling in whatever details you
have time for. Usually you will have
no trouble keeping up with a lec-
turer and can get almost everything,
but get what's important and fill ,in
the details during a lull. You'll find
they'll come in.handy on an exam
so don't neglect them.
By all means, look interested in
class, even if it means writing letters
to stay awake. And, if possible, talk
to your instructor sometime before
or after class. If there is something
you're not quite clear on, or wish to
have elaborated further, don't hesi-
tate to ask him, but be sure the
answer isn't in the book first!
A good way to let your instructor
know you are reading his optioal
assignments is to ask him a question
about it, perhaps some point that
differs with the text. Talking to a
professor before or after class gives
him a personal impression of you,
whether it is good or bad will depend
on the questions you ask. That im-
pression may prove valuable in a
recommendation some day.
Find Old Exams
When blue-book time comes a-
round, you should experience little
difficulty, if you've gotten off to a
good start. The professor will usually
give you a pretty good idea of what
he thinks is important and the type
of suestions he'll ask. If not, you
can always make use of the exam
files at the main library lower study
HEoping that this will help you a
little, let me wish the best of luck to
you new freshmen in your studies.
But let .me also urge you to go out
for some extra-curricular activity
for its many benefits and I hope
you'll have as much fun as I have.

In the past volunteers have con-
tributedapproximately 10,000 hours
per year, and over 400 different:
workers have helped achieve the
commendable record.
Workers' Uniforms;
Members of the Central Commit-
tee act as captains and are stationed
in the volunteers' offices each after-
noon and evening. It is their duty
to assign newcomers to posts and to
see that workers are evenly distribu-
ted throughout the hospital,
Volunteers may work on private
floors or in wards or clinics. They
may also help at the Galen's stand
which sells candy, newspapers and
various other luxuryitems topa-
Four Hours Weekly
A minimum of four hours per week
is required of each volunteer. Every
effort is made to see that volunteers
maintain a conscientious, cheerful
attitude toward their work.
St.' Joseph's Hospital is especially
in need of workers at mealtime to
pass trays and to feed some of the
patients. Volunteers at St. Joseph's
are not required to wear uniforms,
but are asked to wear light colored
cotton blouses.

To the Freshmen Women:
American women are the only
young women in the world who are
having the opportunity of higher
education. We are fortunate to be
living in America and to be living in
a time of unprecedented opportunity
for women. There is no field in
which women are not now needed.
The armed forces, the health servi-
ces, social service, industry, govern-
ment service, teaching-all these are]
in dire need of trained women.
We must all realize the magnitude
of the struggle; and American women
must learn that we cannot live in
selfish and, at present, somewhat pro-
tec.ted isolationism. Our horizon has
got to be world wise and our choice
of work must not be made on. the
basis of what we think will do us
the most good. Rather must we say,
"Where, with my special skill and
ability, can I do the most good?"
It is the duty of every woman
now enrolled at the University of
Michigan to recognize her need
for training, and to accept that
training and education with a ser-
ious purpose and a sense of respon-
sibility. This is no time to come to
the "campus" and not to "college."
In her academic program and In
her social and extra-curricular ac-
tivities ,each women should make
her college experience significant.
Red cross training and service, hos-
pital volunteer service, community
cooperation, and special volunteer
work to meet one of the serious
shortages are all important extra-
curricular opportunities. The work

in the classroom should serve two
purposes, that of providing special
background for a particular job and
that of gaining insight into the world
revolution in which we are taking
In future years, if any woman is
asked what she did to help save
her nation in its time of need, she
will want to have an answer. She
will want to say that she freed a
man for active combat duty in the
armed services, or that she became
a nurse, or did social work in a
crowded industrial community, or
helped make bombers, or worked
for the Red Cross, or helped by
teaching in the over-crowded
schools. She will not want to say,
"I didn't do anything special. I
couldn't find what Iwanted to do."
College training is preparation for
a life of usefulness. Be ready to
meet the challenge of your day. We
welcome you to the University with
confidence that you will discover here
the true meaning of education.
Very sincerely yours,
Alice C. Lloyd
Dean of Women.

To Coed's Wardrobe at Michigan

Here isa check list to help you re-
member all of the necessities which
must be in your college-bound trunk
before it is locked and sent down to
the train station.
Now, do you have your tweed or
gray flannel suit? Your good old
knockabout pal that is just right for
football, dances afterwards, classes,
and just about any campus activity
that you will attend.. Then for con-
trast there is your dressmaker suit
in red or black or maybe gold.

That should take care of the suit
situation, but of course any extra
jackets will always come in handy.
When it's cold in ' Ann Arbor you
wear skirts and sweaters, when it's
colder than that you wear a jacket
over your sweater.
Once in a while, seldom oftener
than once a week, you shed your
knitted cashmeres and shetlands and
slip into a bit of crepe or soft, soft
wool. The DRESS that no trunk is
complete without is black. This fall
will see more and more of the super-
sleek sequined style (the aliteration
is for smooth). A good black can
be varied with gold bracelets, pins,
lockets or earrings. A rhinestone clip
with 'mtching earrings is another
way of adding glamour to glamour.
Wear Your Wool
Pastel wools with fly fronts or
those that button all the way up are
just right for ordinary weekend
dances. Baby blue, red, gold, winter
white, and deep purple are the most
popular colors with Michigan women
and, what's more important, with
Michigan men. Plaids with dutch
girl pockets and peter pan collars are
cute and -colorful for a dark winter's
Speaking of blouses, be sure they
are tailored with turn down collars.
White is best and long sleeves are
the most graceful. Dickies must be
in your trunk, down there by your
Rainhat Required
The general list is nearly complete
now. You can fill in the details ac-
cording to your taste and purse. No
more than two hats are necessary.
One of them should be the kind that
originated in the seafaring world-
the kind that keeps your hair dry and
your head warm. This brings up the
subject of raincoats. The style does-
n't matter, but be sure it's complete-
ly waterproof and all set for a good
work out.
You can close the lid on your
trunk now and feel assured that your
first appearances will be good ones.
Don't forget your brightest acces-
sory, however, your smile will win
you many more friends than that
new coral sweater. And remember
that war bonds must head every
shopping list.
