A GANG OF SINGERS

A war-time call for educators

Few students are strang-
era to shouts blaring in the
Diag, belonging to groups
clamoring for attention from
passersby. Theoe organiza-
tions often call for participa-
tion in campus clubs or ask
students rushing to class for
charitable donations.
But in 1943, one organiza-
tion called in a favor with a
much greater intensity.
The Willow Run Com-
munity School - home to a
high school, adult education
classes and a day care center
- reached out to University
co-eds to fill the void of edu-
cators lost to people helping
with the World War II effort.
According to an article in
The Michigan Daily on Dec.
15, 1943, attendance at Wil-
low Run increased from 180

children to 410 as more par-
tots became employed in
war-related work - and with
that boom in attendance,
more teachers were needed.
Though government offi-
cials had already built three
new schools to try to com-
pensate for the expanded
enrollment, the program at
Willow Run needed women
at the University to keep the
program afloat, according to
the article.
The school especially
called for women with any
experience in caring for sick
children, emphasizing the
desperation of the situation.
"Expansion of the Child-
care Program at Willow
Run depends on University
women," the article stated.
"They are needed to super-

vise the activities of these
children."
According to the article,
a major cause of absentee-
ism at the time was the fact
that parents had to choose
between showing up at their
jobs - which could help the
war effort - and caring for
their children.
Due to this lack of ade-
quate childcare, the adult
education program at Wil-
low Run was also suffering
great losses, according to the
article.
Registration to help vol-
unteer at the Willow Run
School was held in the Mieh-
ipso League lobby, where
student volunteers stood and
answered questions about
the program.
