STANDS AT FORGE ALL MORNING AND WORKS
IN SHOP AFTERNOONS
Ann Arbor, Mich. A
very feminine, almost frail
booking girl stands at the
forge in. the shops of the
engineering department of
the University of Michigan
from 7:30 in the morning
till noon and at her bench
in the wood shops from 1
o'clock in the afternoon till
5:30 at night, three days a
week.
She is Miss Hazel Quick,
a junior engineer who is
doing exactly the work she
wants to. She is said to be
the first woman engineer
ing student in the United
States to include shop work
in her regular course.
"I realize that in deciding
upon my profession I have
invited many perplexities
and obstacles, and that
there will- be
great opposition.
But I vigorously
believe that if I
am' capable the
right is mine,
and it is my
equal privilege
with men to
superintend a
job or boss a
gang! I hug tight
my pet and hon
est opinion that
an equally capa
ble woman has
as much right as
a man."
And, at that, Miss Quick is not a
suffragist. She is popular, and would
rather tango than eat!
o o
The women in Pittsburgh believe
so thoroughly in the power of their
own sex that they are asking for
woman police chief
' - i
. NATURALLY -"How
did' the airship happen to
fall?"
"The pilot went up in the air.".
o o -
What a beautiful world this would
beif-we should all follow the advice
we give otheis.
