University Students Get
Work Through Y. M.
JOBS FOUND FOR 105;
Pay Last Term is $11,979
Says Mrs. Donnelly
Some unusual occupations that
University men engage in were
brought to light recently in a re
port by Mrs. C. E. Donnelly, head of
the University employment bureau,
to the .advisory board of the United
Christian Work of the University
Mrs. Donnelly, who has head
quarters at the Young Men’s
Christian Association, has for sev
eral years been the friend of men
who have had to work their way
through college and has aided them
a great deal in finding employment.
She is affectionately known as
“Mother” Donnelly to the boys
around the “Hut.”
Jobs Are Varied
Some of the men are dishwash
ers, dishwipers, or waiters in fra
ternity houses, downtown lunch
counters, restaurants and hotels.
There are janitors, clerks, stenog
raphers, and electricians. One
freshman has made over $180 milk
ing cows. Another is a professional
rug weaver. There is a junior whij
takes care of children in private
homes when their parents are out
for the evening. Several men mark
or sort clothes in laundries.
Many Earn Board
The report shows that the em
ployment bureau has found regular
jobs for 105 men and a very much
larger number of odd jobs. Seventy
two men have made more than their
board and room. Eleven men have
made more than their board, and
twenty-two have made more than
their room. The total amount of
money made by these students who
have had regular jobs in the last
term is $10,479. A conservative
estimate of the amount made
through odd jobs was placed by
Mrs. Donnelly at $1,500, making
the grand total for the term $11,
979. One year ago, for the same
term, only $10,928 was earned,
which shows an increase of $1,051
for this year.

“It is an error, for example, to
assume that all the institutions and
sacred traditions of centuries must
be ruthlessly supplanted by the
practices of a western civilization.”
Dr. Ching Yi Cheng, national ,
leader of the student Christian

hope, a better civilization?
Africa, too, is becoming self
conscious. Her people are no longer
willing to accept everything second
hand, but are desirous of an oppor

dominance, of more fortunate na

SECOND STRING MEN
NOW TO BE “SORRELS”
Dance Planned for February 8
to Foster Good Fellowship
of Scrub Team
The second stringers of the past
season's football squad held a
rather torrid meeting in the library
last night; the chief argument be
ing over the selection of a name
for the club that could be handed
down as a permanent tradition. By
the exercise of parliamentary rules,
backed by methods perfected on the
football field, President “Scrap
Iron’’ Toole managed to keep vari
ous embryo Patrick Henrys from
creating too much disturbance,
finally after a close vote the name
“Sorrels” was selected from among
such others as “Scrub Club,”
“Yannigans” and others of a
An official motion was also passed
which made the members of the yell
staff, who so ably supported Jack
Myers last fall, honorary members
of the organization. It was also
moved that the sport writers be
made members of thfe organization.
George Hillis and Ed Warren re
ported that the dance which is to
be given February 8 will be an in
formal affair and held at the Col
lege Side Inn. The dance is not
only a recreational pleasure, said
President Toole, but is for the pur
pose od developing a spirit of
friendliness and good fellowship
among those who failed to make
their letters and the successful men.
To further this cause, he explained
that the members of the freshmen
squad of footballers' who made their
numerals will also be invited.

High Point Winner
, Gamma Phi Beta beat the Alpha
Chi Omega team in the meet held
last night, with a score of 46 to 17.
Both squads showed good fighting
spirit throughout. The losers were
handicapped by having only four
girls to take part in all the events.
Virginia Wilson was the high
point winner of the meet, making
the maximum 15 points. Francis
Morgan, for the Alpha Chis, cap
tured first place in the diving event.
Delta Zeta forfeited to Alpha
Phi, so no league 1 contest was
held last night. Meets scheduled
for tonight are Alpha Delta Pi vs.
Susan Campbell (1), in league 1,
and Alpha Chi Omega vs. Susan

DR. CASWELL IS ASKED

Dr. A. F. Caswell, professor of
physics, has recently accepted a re
quest from the international re
search council to edit and criticize
some data on thermal electricity to
be published in the international
critical tables w-hich are being com
piled by this group of scientists.
The international research coun
cil, composed of experts in the
fields of physics, chemistry, and
technology from all parts of the
world, in a recent meeting decided
to compile these tables as time
savers for scientists. “In the past
if a scientist wanted to secure some
of these important technical fig

been necessary for him to analyze
the figures for himself. With the
aid of these tables it is hoped that
