Navy Assures WAVES Officers
Assignments in Chosen Fields
With the adoption of a new policy
by the Women's Reserve of the U.S.
Navy, successful WAVES officer can-
didates are assured of assignment in
the field for which they have an-
nounced preference upon application,
according to Lt. (j.g.) Helen Stewart,
WAVES recruiting officer who re-
cently visited Ann Arbor.
Women applying for officer can-
didacy may specify the field of ser-
vice in which they wish to work, Lt.
Stewart . said, and a candidate is
accepted with the understanding that
if she passes officers' training she
will be commissioned for her special
field. If the candidate does not pass,
she has the choice of remaining in
the Navy as a member of the enlisted
personnel or returning to civilian life.
Seniors May Enter Reserve
Since there are quotas for officers
in each type of work, the WAVES
have a system of priorities by which
applications are considered. Among
fields rating a number one priority
are occupational therapy, office man-
agement, supplies and accounts and
statistics. Women who apply for oth-
er fields have less of a chance for
acceptance to candidacy, although,
Lt. Stewart said, there are still,
opportunities in many other occupa-
A coed now in the second semester
of her senior year may apply for
officer candidacy, and if accepted
she will enter the V-9 reserve pro-
gram for college students. Applicants
must secure recommendation from a;
faculty committee, about which fur-
ther information may be obtained
from Miss Alice Lloyd, Dean of
Choice of Fields Broad
The fields for which college women
may apply are: accounting, adminis-;
tration, aerology, cartography, chern-
istry, communications, cryptanalysis,
educational services, institutional
management, law, library science,
mathematics, office management,
personnel work, physics.

administration, statistics, supply
corps, welfare and recreation, writ-
ing and editing, bacteriology, .hel-
minthology, parasitology, serology,
dental hygiene, medical research,

apy and physiolbgy.
Although experience is desirable
for all programs offered, it is not an
essential requirement for aerology,
chemistry, communications, crypt-
analysis and educational services.
Further information may be ob-
taimed fromLt. Stewart, who is per-
manently stationed on the niinth floor
of the Book Building in Detroit.
Workers Handle Clean Linen
In Pleasant Surroundings of
The University Laundry must have
coed help if it is to continue its ser-
vices this summer, according to Peg
Weiss, War Council personnel ad-
ministrator, who yesterday urged
University women to give a part of
their time and energy to keeping the
laundry in operation.
Workers are paid 53 cents an hour,'
and are asked to work a minimum
of six hours each week. The hours
may be distributed through the week
from Monday morning to Saturday
"Coed workers handle only clean
linen," Miss Weiss said, "and work
is done in clean, light, airy surround-
ings. The laundry is University-op-
erated, and without our help it can-
not continue its service."
University Laundry handles all of
the table linen, sheets, pillow cases,
towels, operating gowns, patients'
pajamas and gowns and wrapping
cases for dressings for University
Hospital The Laundry also services
the League, Union and East and West

work, such as folding, sorting and
piling, at the laundry, which is open

THIS WAVE-and hundreds like her helps keep 'em flying. She is
an important cog in the machinery which makes Navy fliers. As a
Link Trainer Instructor, her job is to give directions to fliers, seated
in cockpits of stationary training planes. The instrument in front
of her, called a "crab," records how well the pilot carries out those
directions. As a result of this kind of training, hazards are greatly
reduced for pilots when they go aloft. The inset shows a rating badge
worn by Link Trainer Instructors, the "T" meaning teacher. A new
booklet about the WAVES is available at Navy Recruiting Offices.
