Second semester sewing will be car-E
ried on from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday
and Wednesday of each week, start-.
ing this Saturdlay at the Women's
Athletic Building. Knitting materials
will now be distributed at the same
time to those women who contract

Unit Is Expanded
Machine capacity of the unit has
been expanded to accommodate the
increase in participation, while the
amount of work accomplished is ex-
pected to expand with the additional
time period.
Alpha Gamma Delta has contribut-
ed the rent for sewing machines this
week.
Under the chairmanship of Janet
Lewin, '43, the project was started
last semester. The unit, under the
supervision of the Washtenaw County
Red Cross chapter, receives instruc-
tion and personal supervision from
Ann Arbor volunteers.
The Michigan projet is the first.
of its kind to be established in an
American University o college.
All Women Are Welcome
The Women's Athletic Association
board welcomes to the workroom all
women students, with or without
previous experience in this field. Ad-
equate supervision for beginners is,
available.
No compulsory hours or numbers
of hours are specified for each work-
er; participators last semester spent
from one half hour to twenty hours
per person.
The new unit answers the demands
of students for a work project in a
humanitarian cause.

Sale For Freshmen To Continue
From 1 P.M. To 5 P.M. Friday
Holders of Freshman identification
cards may secure tickets for the an-

Sale of tickets to Freshmen will

The theme for the dance this year
is to be "A Freshman's Nightmare,"
and decorations consist of a huge
bluebook framing the band, and a
large airbrush painting to be hung
at the other end of the room. This
mural will depict the various Fresh-
man activities. A tree of knowledge
will be found in the foyer of the ball-
room.
Music for the dance will be furn-
ished by Johnny 'Scat' Davis, ac-
claimed the "band of the year." Davis'
