The members of the committee
received names of the students that
they are to advise personally, concerning the choice of vocations.
Plans were made to sponsor several
special addresses to be made by eminent professional leaders at the
university during the months of
April and May.
The object of the committee is to
give women students useful information about various vocations in
regard to their opportunities, salOn regisaries and requirements.

by the student.
Dean Blanding said, yesterday
that fcr the last few years the vocational guidance committer has
been inactive at the university, but
that it has been revived this year
because of the great need of such
an agency to the women students
of today. Many of the women who
graduate from the university are
unable to decide what profession or
occupation to enter. The guidance
committee will attempt to remedy
tlvse conditions.
The committee is made up of the

Members of Alpha Gamma Delta
sorority this week are instituting
a finance drive which will bring
direct benefit to the needy students of the university, and which
also will assist in the relief of
the unemployed of Lexington. The
method which has been selected,
whereby contributors donate one
cent each time they eat a meal,
is one which makes it possible for
everyone to assist.
As we have pointed out in a
previous editorial, present economic conditions are a challenge
to our entire social order, of
which our educational system is
an intergral part. The situation in
the world of business cannot but
extend into the college and the
university, and here, as in the
business world, the unequal distribution of wealth is cited as the
basis of existing evils. In the
current campaign for funds we
believe that those students who
are more financially
than their fellows should contribute more than the sum which is
