Baby Siters
Have Time
For Studies
The Office of the Dean of Wom-
en has issued a call for baby sit-
ters-a job which has more than
financial remuneration to recom-
mend it.
For those students whose pet
peeves include an uncomfortable
library and a noisy house, the
baby-sitting position has study ap-
peal. Parents usually have the
youngster or youngsters in bed be-
* fore the arrival of the baby sitter
who can then sit down to an eve-
ning of undisturbed book-crack-
Some parents may lure baby-
sitters with the offer of a well-
stocked refrigerator, record col-
lections and an invitation for the
boy or girl friend. Baby-sitters
then have an opporunity for a rare
"evening-at-home" which the stu-
dent occasionally longs for in the
midst of the Ann Arbor social
In the event that the baby-sit-
ters charges are not sound or
steady sleepers and awaken during
the night, the sitter should not be
a complete stranger. Parents may
arrange an afternoon meeting
with the child so that the baby-
sitter can establish a friendship
and avoid that helpless feeling
when the tot wakes up at nighi
and screams for "Mommy" at th
sight of the baby-sitter's face.
One experienced male baby-sit-
ter declares that the key to baby
watching is the telephone number
which the parents leave for him ir.
case of emergencies. Its chief
value, he maintains, is its feeling
of security because most situa-
- tions have to be handled by the
baby-sitter anyway until the par-
ents get home.
Women students who wish t(
baby-sit may put their names or
the list in the Office of theDeai
of Women. Householders who wisl.
the baby-sitting service may cal
at the same office. Office hour:
are Monday through Friday 8 a.m
to 12 noon and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

TEXAS LIFEGUARDS-These girls amply bear out half of that old Texas boast about having the

THE NEW LOOK, at first glance,

POPULAR IN summer cottons is
the bolero-sundress combina-
tion. Cool and carefree, the bun-
dress can be formalized for city
wear with a matching or contrast-
ing bolero. Contrasting cummem-
bunds provide an added distinc-
tion and formality. Almost all of
the popular pattern manufactur-
ers have varied and simple pat-
terns for this type dress.

flats. Women find these shoes
practical and versatile for they
can be worn as playshoes or for
formal dances. Best effect is with

To complete the picture and add
sparkle to dressy cottons diminu-

Men Bterl
Than Women
Men are better "laundresses"
than women, at least as far as au-
tomatic washers are concerned, re-
"According to an operator of a
Detroit juke box laundry, the
mechanized housekeeping that has
put the man of the housetbehind
the apron, over 50 per cent of the
washings today are done by men.
Teach a man how to run the auto-
matic washers and in a little while
he's an expert," the laundry owner
"For one thing, women, after
they put their quarters in the
washing machine, try to overload
it. The male washwoman sorts his
washing out neatly, slips quarters
in the right number of machines,
tells the laundry help how much
bluing and starching he wants on
the assorted loads, and then slips
away for a quick beer or stands
and watches the washing, bubbles
and suds, go round and round-
says it's very soothing on his

Summer's bright suns will tell
the world whether you give your
skin proper care.
Only a silky, clear skin will
stand the test of the bright sum-
mer sun, which shows up every lit-

just as much care of your skin in
summer as you do in the winter,
