Difference in College Women,
Of Today,'YesterdayMarked

If the coke-sipping, prom trotting
coed of the class of '35 were to re-
turn to her alma mater today, she
would find an entirely different spe-
cies of college women had descended
on the American university.
Dean of Women Alice C. Lloyd
summarized the difference fully in
an address to incoming freshman
women when she said, "This is no
time to come to the 'campus' and
not to the 'college.' The eighteen
year old girl who, even if untouched
herself, has lived through an age
of atomic bombs, famines, and ra-
cial crises seeks far more in a college
education than coke dates, bullses-
sions on men and an ivy covered tra-
Whether the present day coed is
as happy as her older sister was
in her rah-rah days is open to
conjecture, but it is certain that
she is not as carefree. She knows
that by accepting a college educa-
tion, she also assumes a great res-
ponsibility to herself and to the.
future. She is earnest about it, and
she is determined to take full ad-
vantage of the opportunity.
The coed who, ten years ago, con-,
sidered college a gay round of house
parties and fraternity pins, is now
taking economics, political science, or
preparing for professional schools.
She participates in activities for-
merly run entirely by men, she at-
tends world student conferences on
peace and world unity, she is up on
the labor situation, she reads all she'

can find on the race problem, politi-
cal questions, and new philosophies
born in war-bitter nations.
Mature in every way, she writes
on subjects as profound as do es-
tablished literary figures, she
paints and sculps with an expres-
siveness equalling that of older
recognized artists. But most im-
portant, she thinks and is aware
of life. She still likes good times,
but she does not devote four years
to fun.
The Michigan campus enjoyed
fame, during the racoon coat era
and following years, as a center for
all the glamour that was college. The
election of a Big Ten Queen was the
major event of the coed's year. Foot-
ball and chrysanthemums, clothes
and balls dominated the life of the
freshmen and seniors alike.
But the Ann Arbor campus has
changed a great deal since then.
Michigan women today com-I
pletely govern themselves through.
the League Council, Judiciary Com-
mittee, Panhellenic and Assembly.
Six of the eighteen members elected
to the Student Legislature last year
were women. Women serve along
with men in other major campus
projects, The Daily, the 'Ensian,
and specialized student groups.
Call it. evolution, progress, or a
trend in American civilization. But
the difference between today's col-
lege women and Betty Coed of a few
years back is marked. College women
of today and tomorrow lead a useful
and important life

Teaching Posts
In QI Schools
Open to Women
Women teachers are missing an in-
valuable opportunity to travel if they
overlook the teaching positions now
open in the Army's service schools in
Japan and Korea, according to Ar-
vella Chick, graduate student, who
leaves this week for Japan to accept
a position teaching political science
in Tokyo.
Instructors selected for the special
assignments commit themselves for
only nine to twelve months overseas;
receive substantial salaries, have all
of their travel expenses paid, and
retain a civilian status. Opportuni-
ties to travel throughout Japan and
Korea are offered all of these teach-
ers, Miss Chick explained.
Operated similarly to service
schools in Europe, the schools for
GI's in the Orient will offer classes
ranging from basic literary instru.-
tion to pre-college and college
training. Subjects scheduled to be
taught include, English, history,
political science, psychology, art,
anthropology, speech, Spanish, Ger-
man, French, mathematics, and
The U.S. Army Information and
Education Division is now selecting
personnel for these posts from among
the candidates with the highest qual-
ifications, regardless of sex. Of the
group chosen thus far, a sizeable
number, although a minority, have
been women.
In addition to the opportunities to
travel and the experience of living
in a foreign country, Miss Chick
stressed the attractiveness of the
salary. When 25 per cent for over-
seas service is added to the base rate
of $3,640, the annual salary exceeds
At the same time, living expenses
are far below the prevailing level
in America. Lodging is furnished
by the Army, and all women em-
ployees live in a large hotel in
downtown Tokyo. The cost of a
year's meals as prepared by the
Army amounts to only $270. All
normal medical and dental cares
are provided by the Army and
overtime pay is computed on a
forty hour work week.
Miss Chick believes the experience
of teaching for a year in Japan will
be invaluable to her and to the other
American women who are being se-
lected for the work. "The recon-
struction of Japan and the estab-
lishment of- an entirely new system
of government may be viewed first-
hand," she said.
Single women who are qualified to
instruct any of the afore mentioned
courses and who are interested in
traveling may contact the University

Noted in Shoes!
Will the open toe, sling heel epoch
in women's footwear be shortened
or prolonged?
Leading shoe manufacturers offer
their answer to this moot question
and assert that the classic and closed
opera pump is on the upswing in
Styles Simplified
Among the early models shown
for fall selling are the plain and sim-
ple opera pump without any adorn-
ment, the pump with the rolled or
extension leather soles, and the
slightlier dressier pump with re-
strained throat ornament.
Among the reasons offered by
manufacturers for the popularity of
the style are the shoe's suitability
for wear with the new and longer
daytime hemlines and the more
perfect fit obtained with closed toe
and heel.
Covered-up Look Abounds
The covereddlook in leather-soled
shoes is carried out not only in the
classic pump, but in models that are
being closed up by degrees. Sandals
have wider asymmetric bands with
much smaller open spaces along the
stepin or fore and aft. Cut-outs are
smaller, and many sling pumps with
squared leather soles have closed
Decorative notes in fall footwear
are more subtle, with the emphasis
on a softer feeling in trim.
The Big Four in shoe color for fall
includes formal black, navy blue,
brown in cocoa and deeper shades,
and rich wine tones.

IDEAL FOR TRAVELING, these robes are light-weight
and easily packed in a suitcase . . . available in small,
medium, and large sizes. They come in gold or aqua
with a hand-blocked bamboo design; white with a
Hawaiian shower; and rose with Hawaiian orchid.
