    College Women Needed
By Marine Corps Now
‘ We've had a very successful week here at the University
of Oregon,” Staff Sergeant Tia Lange and Sergeant Flora
Ecarello, women marines, said Friday before leaving the cam
pus to return to recruiting headquarters in Portland. The ma
rines have been on the campus this week on a special recruiting
campaign. No University women enlisted but the sergeants
report that a dozen coeds were
interviewed and plan to enlist in
the marines when they become of
According to Sergeant Lange,
Staff Sergeant Roy Vernstrom,
former Oregana editor and now
serving as head of the public rela
tions department of the marines
headquarters in Portland, said re
cently, “I'm glad to hear that my
old school is working behind our
fighting boys by supporting this
marine recruiting campaign.”
University women who wish
more information about the women
marines may write to the recruit
ing office in 208 U. S. Courthouse,
Portland 5, Oregon.
“In every corner of the eartn
marines are carrying forward re
lentless offensives by land, sea,
and ail-. America needs its com
bat marines at the front. America
needs women to take over a ma
rine's job here and release him to
fight over there,” said Colonel
Sfjreeter, director of the marine
corps women's reserve. “The wom
en of the military services do not
join up for glamour. We are look
ing for strong, intelligent, willing
women who show the same smart
ness and snap which characterizes
the men of the marine corps.”
In order to qualify for enlist

years olds, have a minimum of two
years of high school or business

Women marines receive the
same pay as the men of the corps,
and they enlist to serve for the
duration and six months. Women
are accepted in the marine corps
on a basis of absolute equality with
men and will be expected to quali
fy with their standards. Indoctrin
ation training lasts six weeks, ad
vanced from four to 20 weeks de
pending on the field. Marines are
assigned to the field in which they
seem most likely to succeed.
After six months of service in
the continental United States,
women marines may now volun
teer for overseas duty. College
women who enlist now will be al
lowed to complete spring term
before being called to active duty.
