Dean Lloyd Welcomes Freshmen,
Advises Coeds on Career Choice
August 10, 1945
To the Freshmen Women:
There is urgent need that every woman in America find as soon as
possible the place where she with her special ability can make the finest con-
tribution to the solution of the nation's problems in this day of world revo-
lution. 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
services, health and social services, government service, teaching-all
these are in dire need of trained women. We must all realize the mag-
nitude of the reconstruction problem and that our horizon has to be
world wide these days. American women must learn that we can no
longer live in a selfishly protected isolationism, that our choice of work
must answer the question, "Where, with my special skill and ability, can
I do the most good?" We can no longer make our choice of life work on
the basis of what will do us the most good.
It is the duty of every woman now enrolled at the University of Michigan

sense of responsibility. This is no
time to come to the "campus" and
not to college. In her academic pro-

should make her college experience
significant. Red Cross training and

Will Sponsor
Center Teas
.This fall will see numerous ac-
tivities sponsored by the Social Com-
mittee, a part of Women's War Coun-
First on the list is a series of trips
by co-eds to Percy Jones Veterans'
Hospital at Battle Creek. There they
will act as hostesses for dances to
be given for the hospital personnel.
Journeys similar to these were made{
during the spring term by the Gam-
ma Phi Beta, Sorosis and the Wo-
man's War Council.
The International Center helps
foreign students to get acquainted
and teas there are to be sponsored
in turn by all co-ed houses on cam-
pus. Each house will be notified by
the Social Committee as to the day
it will be in charge of the tea.
To Revive Traditions
Thebold Michigan traditions which
have been lost sight of or neglected
during the war years are to be re-
vived. In order to inform those who
are new on the campus, a series of
lectures sponsored by the committee
will be held. These lectures will tell
about such things as not walking on

Certain activities during orienta-
tion, which helps all freshmen find
their way around campus, are also
in the hands of. the Social Commit-
tee. Along with these other things,
the new committee chairman, Dor-
othy Wantz, with the assistance of
Robin Cherer, in charge of functions
at the International Center, and
Olive Jean Whitaker, in charge of
special events, plans to sponsor a
Guide Service, a bridge tournament,
dancing classes and a date bureau.
Sponsors Ruthven Teas
The Ruthven teas, given at the
home of President and Mrs. Ruth-
ven, are under the direction of Betty
Lou Bidwell, Ann Robinson, Lucy
Stone and Grace Lathrope, all mem-
bers of the committee. These teas
present-an excellent opportunity for
freshmen and upper classmen to
meet their president and his wife.
The social committee plans to have
next year an outstanding one in the
committee's history.

Panhellenic Association, of which

all sorority women on campus are
members, has been gearing, for the
last few years, its activities to pro-
mote, through collective and indi-
vidual participation, the campus' war
projects, according to Marian John-
son, president.
The Association will hold weekly
meetings of sorority house presidents
at which they will consider the in-

not yet formulated for the coming
year, but itbis indicated that the

and a secretary-treasurer.
The two vice-presidents are in

The organization has planned a
Fortnight program for the period

. Welcomes New Students
serious shortages are all important
extra-curricular opportunities. The
work in the classroom should serve
two purposes, that of providing spe-
cial background for a particular job
and that of gaining insight into
the world revolution in which we
are taking part.
In future years. if any woman
is asked what she did to help her
nation in its time of struggle, she
will want to have an answer. She
will be happier if she can say that
she tock her opportunities serious-
ly, that she prepared herself to
help the world pull out of the
chaos from which it had to re-
cover during her generation; that
she helped with the world's nurs-
ing problems or with the social
work of her community; that she
helped by teaching in the over-
crowded schools or worked for the
Red Cross. She will not want to
say, "I didn't do anything in par-
ticular. I couldn't find what I
wanted to do."
College training is preparation for
a life of usefulness. Be ready to meet
the challenge of your day. We wel-
come you 'to the University with
confidence that you will discover
here the true meaning of education.
Very sincerely yours

The staccato of typewriters, the

Shortly after the opening of the
fall term, a mass meeting will be held
for all women interested in working
on the women's staff, the time of the

U' Has Honorr
Society To Fi"t
Each BWOC 1
Alpha Lambda Delta Open
To 3.5 Average Freshmen
If your wagon is hitched to a starl
or if the term BWOC strikes musical
chords on your ears or if campus extra
curricular activities have a magic ap-
peal for you, then you will find that
Michigan's many honor societies are
looking in your direction.
Alpha Lambda Delta
Most of the honor societies are for
junior and senior women although
freshman women are eligible for
membership in one honor society, Al-
pha Lambda Delta. Members are cho-
sen on the basis of their scholastic
achievements only, requirements be-
ing half A's and half B's in the first
semester. Other purely scholastic
achievements such as Phi Kappa Phi
or Phi Beta Kappa are attained only
by those juniors and seniors who
really have solved the mysteries of
Ec. 51 or English 2.
Of course, the societies which rec-
ognize BWOC's also have scholastic
requirements. Mortarboard, national
honorary society for senior women,
has a scholastic record of .3 above
campus average for a standard re-
quirement. Other than this, its mem-
bers are chosen on the basis of ser-
vice in war activities and character.
Members wear a miniature mortar-
board of black and gold as their pin.
Senior Society, Scroll
Unaffiliated senior women are eli-
gible for membership in Senior So-
ciety, while sorority women may be
elected to Scroll. These three so-
cieties have as their main function
that of service to the campus as a
whole. For instance, last year Mort-
arboard members tutored returning
veterans in difficult subjects. As its
project for this year, Senior Society
has selected that of being big sisters
to independent women living in
League houses.
Wyvern is the organization for
junior women. The juniors have
adopted yellow and brown as their
colors and their "Damn, Damn,
Damn" tapping song has caused many
a house mother to hold her breath.
Wyvern is limited to twenty members
and taps twice a year, in spring and
in fall.

Studying .Aids
Dressing in the right clothes for
the right occasion is the key to suc-
cess and so it is with the proper
approach to studying.
Despite rumors to the contrary,
quite a bit of studying is called for
in the typical college program. And
until you learn exactly how much
the minimum cover charge is, it's
better to plan on doing too much.
But to get back to the main topic,
you can't study if you're not dressed
for it or you can't study if you are
dressed. What I really mean is that
you have to be undressed to study
and dressed in study clothes.
New Primness
Now that blue jeans have been
prohibited, we discover that the chief
difference in this year's and last
year's study clothes is their new
primness. One of the sharpest new
ideas is the grey flannel three-quar-
ter slacks to be worn with a casual
flannel shirt of a contrasting color.
Also sweet and neat are the navy,
black, or brown and white checked
slacks and matching "battle jackets"
with their military crispness.
Or if you prefer to study in lux-
urious femininity, there are quilted
jersey brunch coats which come in
wonderful colors - black with red
lining, white with soft light blue,
or aqua with peach. These can be
teamed with black satin trousers
which, complete the effect of ex-
Lounging Pajamas
Lounging pajamas are in the know
again with a honey of one being
shown in dashing red satin damask.
This particular style has the addi-
tional attraction of having a full
swishing bustle.
Although Dr. Dentons are almost
impossible to get, the lingerie buy-
ers are hoping to substitute for these
o1' standbys, flannelette night shirts
in various bright colors.
So when you study, dress the part,
but don't ever part with these extra
special study dresses.

Is Handy Item
Everyone knows that a girl's best
friend is her mother, but unfortu-
nately, we cannot take our mothers
to college with us. Therefore, we can
do the next best thing: we can take
the closest link to home and mother
-a laundry case.
This handy little container which
rides the rails betieen here and
home about twice a month may be of
almost any size or shape and should
have a reversible address card and a
good strong strap around it.
Nothing 'so cheers the hard work-
ing coed as a package from home.
The laundry case is better than an
ordinary package because, besides
holding food, soap flakes, cigarettes
and other necessary items, you may
also occasionally get some clean
Therefore, my advice to you is, if
you live any reasonable distance from
Ana Arbor, be sure to provide your-
self with -yes, you guessed it - a
laundry case!
