Coeds Have Obligations
To the Freshmen Women:
THE UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN is welcoming the largest num.
ber of new students which it has ever admitted in its long and honor-
able history. This year many young people, both men and women,
who wanted to come to the University of Michigan were turned away. This
fact puts upon those of you who are here a very special responsibility to
accept the privilege of being here by
doing your part to face your respon-
sibilities and to work with diligence
and sincerity.
The women enrolled in the Uni-
versity during the war years an-
swered a great challenge in meeting
an unusual situation and in carrying
out a program which helped the Uni.
versity and the community in those
difficult years. It is very important
that college women should not now
lose a feeling of the importance of
their responsibilities toward the com-
munity and toward the nation in fac-
ing the adjustments and problems of
the peace.
On the campus at the University
of Michigan the American students
meet representatives of every state in
the Union and nearly every nation in
the world. There is a fine oppor-
DEAN ALICE C. LLOYD tunity to promote international un-
derstanding right here at the Univer-
sity. There is also the opportunity to show our foreign friends what
American hospitality means. They will judge America and American
women by what they find on this campus.
In the years ahead women are going to have very keen and difficult
competition in the business, industrial, and professional worlds. It is im-
portant, therefore, that they accept their educational opportunities with a
serious purpose and that they show real quality in their achievements. It
is no time to come to the "campus" and not to the "college."
College training is a priceless opportunity. It must be a preparation
for a life of usefulness. It must be an experience in tolerance and under-
standing. It should train you to be effective in your generation. We wel-
come you to the University of Michigan with the hope and belief that you
will discover here the true meaning of education.
-Alice C. Lloyd,
Dean of Women
New Coeds Told To Beware
Of Variety of Pitfalls to Study

Dean's Office
Helps in Job'
Many students are working these
days, many at jobs to be found right
on the University campus.
The Office of the Dean of Women
has a special file for those who want
to find part time jobs. They keep in
touch with stores, offices, household-
ers, University instiutions, and other
agencies which need student help.
Girls work in the main library at
all types of jobs-some at the desk,
some in the catalogue department
and still others in the stacks ser-
vicing the books. Each girl must put
in a minimum of 15 hours a week in
a schedule that is easily arranged
with her class hours.
Cafeteria Work
The Michigan League offers jobs
in certain fields. It employs girls for
work in the cafeteria, the soda bar,
or one of the dining rooms. Those
who like waitress work can find em-
ployment in one of the dormitories or
in one of the restaurants nearby.
This work has been especially popu-
lar lately, because of the high cost
of eating out.
One of the easiest ways to earn
room and board is to live at the
home of a faculty member or some
other recommended private home.
There you give in exchange a cer-
tain amount of time daily doing
Typists, Stenographers
The University offices employ typ-
ists and stenographers. Those who
have training in these lines are fre-
quently in demand. Several busi-
ness concerns in the area also use
this type of part time student help.
The University Hospital provides
jobs for many in various types of
positions. They need office helpers,
ward helpers and others.
At Laundry
At the University Laundry, women'
may find work feeding the mangles
or folding clean clothes.
There are numerous opportunities
to earn a part of your college ex-
penses. However, those who plan to
work must remember that it is prac-
tically impossible to try to earn full
expenses. Part time jobs are fun and
there are many girls working at

Granted Yearly
A number of scholarships and
prizes are awarded annually to quali-
fied women students in the Univer-
sity who apply for them.
The various dormitories award
scholarships on the basis of good
citizenship, scholarship, and need.
Although they are ordinarily in-
tended to meet the needs of stu-
dents who have already made a
record at the University, they are
occasionally awarded to a new stu-
dent whose credentials are excep-
Entering freshmen who are resi-
dents of Michigan are eligible to ap-
ply for the Michigan Alumni Under-
graduate Scholarships, valued at the
total of the semester fees. These
scholarships are renewed as long as
the completion of study in the Uni-
versity is satisfactory. Application
should be made to the secretary of
the University of Michigan Alumni
Club in the applicant's home city or
A goal to strive for is the win-
ning of one of the three Ethel A.
McCormick Scholarships which are
awarded each year. These are giv-
en to second semester junior women
who have a scholastic average of at
least 2.7 and have participated in
extra-curricular activities.
The awards of $100 each are pay-
able at the beginning of the next full
semester during which the recipients
are on campus, and are given for one
year unless the winner fails to meet
the requirements at the end of the
first semester.
Letters of recommendation must
accompany each application and the
women applying must appear for an

At school the most complete way to enjoy your leisure
time, to get the most from every spare moment, is to
listen to good music and appreciate its full meaning.

A new college year is opening be-
fore you and if you are reacting to
it in true student form, it is just
agpout this time that you solemnly
swear to yourself that you "are really
going to study this semester-really
going to keep your work up from day
to day."
So with these noble words sound-
ing like a clarion in your brain you
attend the first day's classes, fever-
ishly taking notes in your brand new
notebooks and making memos of as-
signments. The zeal for learning is
within you. "English 1, here I come!"
is your battle cry. Old familiar rules
for good study habits chase across
your memory. Always study in a place
where there is the least possible dis-
traction. Never attempt to study in a
poor light. Study in the free hours
you have throughout the day so that
your evening study load is lighter.
Always do daily assignments and, as
a consequence, experience an easier
Final Week. Don't put off difficult
homework tasks: "tackle them" and
find out how surprisingly easy they
Study Hours Begin
Yes, scholastically speaking, all
promises to be well. And all is well
until between the dark and the day-
light, when the night is beginning to
lower, comes a pause in the day's
occupations that is known (we leave
Longfellow at this point) as the study
hours. Please note the plural.
Dinner is over. Quiet hours have
begun. With a flr'n, buoyant step you
head for your room, prepared to settle
down for some good hard concentra-
tion on those Chem problems. Forty
five minutes later you issue forth from
Scoop's room-those T. Dprsey rec-
ords were too good to miss-and with
a foxtrotting step you again turn
toward your original destination. But
not fast enough, for suddenly your
best friend looms up. Seems like the
gang is planning a .snack and every-
body is going.

Later, much, much later, your
bomb shattering decision and an-
nouncement to retire to the library
announcement to retire to the library
for further study brings a snicker and
then remonstrances from the group.
But to no avail. Your mind is made
up. Study rules must be practiced
before they become habits.
Off to the Library
That walk to the library felt good.
Nothing like the brisk night air to
pep one up. In fact maybe now is a
good time to take a quick glance at
the latest issue of LIFE. The periodi-
cal reading room is right next to the
study room and it will only take a
minute. After briskly thumbing over
the pages devoted to national and
international news and minutely de-
vouring the review of the current hit
movie, you enter the sanctum of stu-
dies and open the school book of the
Ah, now for problem one! After a
brief but sufficient survey of said
problem you decide that perhaps it
would be wiser to move on to problem
two. And after a similar examina-
tion of problem two you feel you are
in need of a respite, and so you make
your way to the drinking fountain.
Upon your return you again force
your wandering attention to remain
on the problems, which have by this
time become definite burdens. The
antics of two nearby veterans pro-
vide fascinating entertainment, how-
ever, and you forget your troubles
until the chimes ring out the startling
news that the Library is closing.
Now no use getting panicky, you
rationalize. These problems are just
extraordinarily hard and you are
tired. You can do them before class
in the morning. Your. English theme
has to be finished when you return
home, and you didn't want to get
into any chemical entanglements
anyway. So your study schedule was
disrupted? What did that man Burns
say about the best laid plans of mice
and men . .?
