Ensign Tells Women
Of Need for More Waves
“This talk about the manpower shortage is not so much imag
ination and fluff,” Ensign Elizabeth Hill of the Wave recruit
ing office in Portland, told several University of Oregon stu
dents who were interested in the Waves. “There is a genuine
need for additional enlistments in the women’s services," she

Wellesley college a year later and
then taught Latin in high school.
While in college she was a Phi

Asked what chance a college girl
has of becoming an officer, Ensign
Hill said that officer candidates
are still being taken directly from
civilian life, but some of the best
officers arc those chosen from the
ranks after six months of training.
Officers must have had four years
of college or two of college and
two of business experience.
Requirements for Wave enlist
ment demand that the recruit must
be at least 20 years old, and if
under 21 have her parents’ con

vision must at least be cori’ected

to choose her own post and as
nearly as possible is sent there.
She is eligible for 14 days’ leave
every year and receives an ample
number of 48-hour passes.
Ensign Hill also said that there
Is little distinction made between
the uniforms of the officer group
and the enlisted group. Base pay

man, is $78 for a third class petty
officer (a rating often received
after advanced training), and is
$138 for ,a chief petty officer.
There is a $200 uniform allowance
and no room, board, tax, or med

There are many openings for

Hobby Hobson, who is the only basketball coach in the
Northwest on the association board of directors, is now at a
DasKetoan association meeting.
Hobson is representing the North- j
west on a three-man committee
which will interview the national j
rules committee. While there he j
will present a number of protests. ,
Among the many things that are
considered by him to be wrong are
the marketing of new basketball
equipment without the approval of
the N.C.A.A. and the coaches.
Another point up for protest is
the raising of the baskets or the j
passing of rules to outlaw the
playing of men over 7 feet. Any
rule that would be passed against
the playing of tall men would be ;
very unfair to the men. They can’t
help it if they are tall and they
have just as much right to play
as a short man.
If a player is able to keep the !
opponents’ shots f rom going
through the hoop more power to
him. There are many teams in the i
nation that have ways of shooting j
