Students Wanting Odd Work Urged
to Rand In Their Names
Seventeen jobs' were distributed
amongst students by the "Y" employ-
ment bureau last week. Thoughtful
housewives are preparing for the fall
week of housecleaning already and are
putting in calls for men to wash win-
doves and wax floors.
The supply of workers is scarcely
equal to the demand. Those who wish
to secure odd jobs are urged to hand
in their names at the employment of-
flce as soon as possible so that the
jobs can be given out as soon as they
are sent into the office.
Long String of Japanese Lanterns
Transforms Lawn
Long strings of Japanese lanterns
transformed the north lawn of New-
berry Residence into a veritable fairy-
land last evening, on the occasion of
the annual lawn fete, given for all
University women by Miss Agnes B.
Wells, the Women's League and the
students of Newberry Residence.
After passing down the receiving
line the many guests strolled over the
lawn, congregating in little groups or
going into the dining hall where danc-
ing was in progress.

A number of men, who have receiv-
ed their commissions at Fort Sheri-
dan, have also been ordered to Cam-
bridge, Mass. They are scheduled to
be in that city Wednesday of next
week. There is some rumor that the
men selected for this camp will enter
more detailed trench instruction and
in all probability they will be some
of the first men to be sent to the fight-
ing lines in Europe.
