U. S. Defense
Program First
For Red Cross
J. K. McClintock Declares
Group Will Have Real
Place In Army Plans
The national defense program must
take precedence over all other work
of the Red Cross, J. K. McClintock
stated yesterday afternoon at the
Red Cross luncheon of the Midwest-
ern Regional Conference.
McClintock, vice-chairman in charge
of finance, American Red Cross, ex-
plained some of the work that the
Red Cross has been doing since the
last war began, but stressed the fact
that the' organization has a definite
and important place in the plans of
the army and navy.
The Red Cross will supply the
fighting forces with nurses, techni-
cians, surgical dressings and aid in
the care of convalescents at army
and navy hospitals. But most im-
portant of all, the Red Cross will
serve, as it has served, as a means
of communication between the en-
listed men and their families. The
Red Cross will be called upon to
maintain the moral of the nation,
McClintock said, and we are the or-
ganization to do just that thing.
However, the biggest part of keep-
ing up the moral will be to com-
bat ideas foreign to our type of gov-
ernment, McClintock continued. An
organization like the Red Cross can
function only in a country in which
men are free.
The vice-chairman declared that
civilian relief in foreign countries is
the Red Cross's biggest problem now.
War today is made on the people of
the cities, he said, and though our
charters contain nothing covering
their relief, we are doing all we can
to relieve their suffering.
The session continued at the Rack-
ham Building where R. C. Swigart,
assistant to the manager of the mid-
western area, spoke on the war relief
activities of the Red Cross. Swigart
told of the money appropriated for
foreign relief and answered questions
which might come up during the roll

The bulletin board in the lobby,
by which means student assistants
keep the freshmen posted on League
and house activities, has been a note-
worthy success as evidenced by the
big turnout of Jordan girls at the
women's swimming meet this week.
If you feel hungry after the game
tomorrow, you'll have to storm the
doors of Stockwell Hall. Alumnae
House or Betsy Barbour for needed
refreshment, for each of them are
holding open house, with Barbour
being a little different, by adding
dancing for those who want it.
Eating with knives on a table-
cloth-less (?) table does not neces-
sarily indicate that Michigan co-eds
have been forced back into barbar-
ism to compete with the males who
romp on Black Friday; it may mere-
[y mean that Helen Newberry is put-
ting its new residents through their
"Pro-Week paces." Wednesday night
was stunt night, last night the ap-
pearance of Dean Alice Lloyd added
a more dignified note to the proceed-
ings and tonight the last dinner of

Harmon, Reagan
Will Be Featured
In CardDisplays
Even the card display at tomor-
row's football game will dramatize
the clash of those two outstanding
gridiron figures, Messrs. Francis
Xavier Reagan and Thomas Dudley
Harmon, Union Executive Carl Rohr-
bach, '42 announced yesterday.
The card displays are formed by
having several hundred students in
the cheering sections hold up blue
or yellow cards at a signal from
the cheer leaders. Each week the
theme of the displays changes to
feature the particular highlight of
the week which, this Saturday is the
rivalry between Michigan and Penn-
sylvania's star halfbacks.
Last week the "Grand Old Man,"
Fielding H. Yost was the center of
intrest, and, although those who do
the actual work of manipulating the
cards can't themselves view the dis-
plays, Rohrback assured them that
their creations are appreciated by
the thousands in the stadium.
The displays will continue to be
graciously received, as long as the
members of the cheering section fol-
low their instructions to the "T,"
Rohrbach concluded.

A total of $48,703.02 has been col-

quota of $56,000 set at the opening
of the campaign.

thanks to workers and Ann Arbor

Although the fund has fallen short
of the goal, Clague pointed out that
last year's drive netted only 79 per
cent of the set total. So the cam-
paign is still ahead.
