Bette, Meyer Is
First Woman,
In CAA Corps
Keep your finger crossed, men.
Here comes that x quantity again.
Yes, who but a woman. And this
time it's Mary Elizabeth Meyer, '40,
who is bent on showing what she can
do to an army airplane this year.
In other words, Miss Meyer, is the
three per cent or approximately the
one-woman-out-of-fifty who this
year for the first time is able to par-
ticipate in the Civil Aeronautic Au-
thority vocational flight training pro-
gram. As flying is Miss Meyer's ma-
jor interest and as she intends to fly
for years and years and set all kinds
of records, she seems just the one to
be the first woman to apply for the
Women Can Fight
The CAA program was established
for the purpose of training citizens
who will continue as private pilots in
later years and of course, go to the
aid of Uncle Sam if he ever spats
with his cousins. And who doesn't
know how women can fight for their
Miss Meyer has had about 15 hours
of dual flight training since she be-
came interested in airplanes about
a year ago when several acquain-
tances of hers took up flying. And it
seems they just couldn't keep her
out of the clouds. Last summer she
attended air meets aplenty, coming
home with various aeronautical sou-
venirs, one being a tricky lamp in the
shape of a transport plane.
Hobby Is Unique
And instead of Petty-pictures
adorning her wallor signed pictures
of famous personages, Miss Meyer has
three large pictures of Ryan St's
hanging over her desk. To the unin-
itiated these are small low-winged
monoplanes-and that's a hobby for
At this moment Miss Meyer has
qualified for everything up to the
preliminary physical exam. And now
she's got her fingers crossed mighty
hard. All applicants have to be over

Members of the dance com-
mittee will meet at 4 p.m. today in

man, announced yesterday.
are urged to sign for their tables at
an early date, Palmer continued. In-
dependents are requested by Bud Cox,
'41E, social chairman of Congress, to
make their table reservations under
the name of Congress
Following the supper, which will be
served at 11 p.m., there will be a pro-
fessional floor show. Some of the
artists who appeared last year will be
back again. Patrons of last year's
dance will remember Spec and Spot,
the famous vaudeville unicyclists and
Chaz Chase, pantomime artist.
Tables will be arranged around the
floor to give room for dancing, group
singing and the floor show. Union
officials promise a full and entertain-
ing evening to those who plan to at-
tend the dance.
Theme Is Chosen
Marshall Brown, '41 and Douglas
Gould, '41, co-chairmen of decora-
tions have announced that a modern-
istic theme has been chosen for the
Other committeemen are E. P. Fos-
ter, '41E and Charles Kerner, '41, co-
chairmen of the ticket committee; Irl
Bent, '41 and Robert Ulrich, '41, co-
chairmen of the ballroom committee;
Harold Singer, '41, programs and
Peter Brown, '41E and Charles Hein-
en, '41E, publicity.
18 years of age but not over 25. They
must not have had solo flying ex-
perience and they must have been in
residence on campus for one year
previous. And then the final choice
is made on a basis of academic
worth, personality, and the physical
exam. Most every one in these days
of violent (?) studying usually has
some eye trouble; but all those ac-
cepted must have 100 per cent vision
without glasses.
Fliers To Try Exams
If Miss Meyer is successful in her
exam, she will complete about 72
hours of ground school throughout
the year starting on Oct. 2 and 35 to
60 hours for flight instruction start-
ing Oct. 16. And for such training,
health exam, insurance, she will only
have to pay $40, the rest being fur-
nished by the government.
So all you men who think you can
fly, don't say we didn't warn you

and kings ...
Weekends on campus are famous and why shouldn't they be? It's a nice
feeling to know that there's one course we all rate "A" in-enjoying our- I
selves. It seems that Ann Arbor took time out from classes, rushing, peti- I
tioning and other gruelling pastimes and took down its hair and had a r
whale of a good time this weekend-en masse. The State game and its in-
flux of visitors spurred on the spirit of fun at the various dances, and the
pep-meeting we staged as an opener was a huge success
After the bonfire died down the crowd surged up State Street to cam-
pus, where fraternities and the League and Union were throwing open their
doors to invite the invaders in to dance. Among those seen at the Union
were Gil Van Schack with Marjorie Sorge, John Coleman and Joan Bou-
chard and Jean Hastie with Jim Palmer. Ginny Morse and Johnny Hague
were also enjoying the music of Bill Sawyer and his orchestra as were Helen
Rhodes and Don Siegel, and Maxine Bertucci with Clark Taylor.
Theta Chi's Celebrate The Score .. .
The Theta Chi's broke down and had a dance Friday night to recuperate
(?) from the game, and among those present were Betty Fariss with Mark
Cheever, Lila Foster with Bob Crane and Aggie Crow doing all right with
Jim Bartlett. Dick Strain, who incidentally did a nice job of cheer-leading
Saturday at the game, was with Claire Reed-Hill. At the pep-meeting
Ann Kingston and Brad Heyl began to wonder if they were going to be
hoarse the next day as were Jane Ann Visscher and Don Winter, down
from Holland.
Our victory celebration brought forth more parties Saturday night and
the dance at the Intramural Building saw more than a few couples taking
"Father" Hines included Virginia Ward and Arnold
White, Bob Smolenski and Mary Later, and Owen
Mays and Joan Lynch. Suzanne Morgan and Ward
Faern were also seen trying to find a spot that looked
like a possibility for dancing. Over at the Kappa Sig
house a "State" dance was in full sway with Bob Mor-
rison and Peg Bennett flying around, bumping into
Chuck Brown and Marian Harris, Bill Altman and
Jane O'Brien, Jeff Pace and Barbara Foote, and
other guests.
Tea Dance In Season . .
The ATO tea-dance in the afternoon put a finishing touch on the
game with Tom Courtney, Bill Lapworth, Mary Baldwin, Ken Meyer, Betty
Clark, Ean Ironsides and Millie Radford adding up the score. Jane Jewitt,
Glen Kendall, Joe Fitsimmons and Ed Purman were there, feeling quite
pleased about the whole thing. Tom Schuler left the Phi Delt house to
come and sip a little tea with the ATO's, as did Elsie Courtney.
Over at the Phi Delt house a post-game celebration was being held by
loyal Michiganites, including Louise Hanson, Bob
Mix, Jo Anne Davidson, Joe Reed, Jane Connell
and Tom Harmon.
Trigon contributed to the list of parties with
a radio-dance Saturday night and Pat Loughead,
Jack Coleman, Pat Tackles, and Dick McGrath-
seemed to think it was a good idea. Joan Ander-
son and Lew Briggs helped the party grow livelier
every minute while Dick Mead played guardian
of the punch bowl. Phi Sigma Delta's original'
couple, Jack Sitanny and Mim Rubin, danced out
on the porch to smooth music provided through
the courtesy of Jack's portable radio!
