Campus Red Cross Unit

To Be Installed Saturday In


Local Chapter
Will BeOpen
Once A Week
Skill Not A Requisite For Those
Wishing To Aid; Work Confined
To Sewing, Knitting Of Clothing
Striving to use its efforts and
building facilities for humanitarian
purposes, the Women's Athletic As-
sociation board last night voted to
install an auxiliary unit to the
Washtenaw County Red Cross chap-
ter in the WAB. The work will
commence Saturday.
Under supervision of the local unit,
the student chapter will be open
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every Satur-
day for knitting and sewing pur-
poses. Work will be confined to the
sphere of clothing; bandage-rolling,
which requires white-gowned attend-
ants, will be omitted.
All Students Are Welcome
No signing up or binding hours will
be required of women who wish to
participate in these Red Cross ac-
tivities. Any woman student who has
fifteen minutes or more to spare at
any time during the specified hours
on Saturday will be welcomed at the
Women's Athletic Building by the
organization committee.
The board put special emphasis on
the fact that skill is not a requisite
for those who wish to spend some
time on the project. There will be
material and instructions for the
novice as well as for the experienced.
Although experience is not need-
ed, the board has requested that
anybody with knowledge of knit-
ting or sewing skills, and who is
interested in becoming a student-
superviser contact Janet Lewin, '43,
"It think it is splendid that the
WAA as an organization is interested
in promoting the Red Cross," said
Dr. Margaret E. Bell, head of the
Physical Education Department for
Women. "The project will provide
an opportunity for girls to spend
their spare moments in this profit-
able way. Every few moments count."
Cooperation Needed For Success
"This is one campus project that
demands a contribution of time and
effort, not for credit in the narrow
sense, but for an entirely humani-
tarian purpose" was the comnent of
Miss Marie Hartwig, faculty adviser
to the WAA.'
The chapter will work on the all-
or-none principle. The project can-
not be a mediocre success, because
it will be dissolved unless it proves
definitely profitable to the organ-
ized Red Cross. The building will be
open Saturday to anybody who wishes
to participate.
"Since the continuation of the
project depends upon the success of
the first turnouts, the cooperation of
all womnen who have at least fifteen
minutes a week to spare is urged,"
Janet Lewin, '43, chairman of the
project, commented.
To Give Lecture
"Internal Combustion Engines" will
be the title of a talk to be made by
Prof. E. T. Vincent of the mechanical
engineering department at 7:30 p.m.
today to members of the student
chapter of the American Society of
Mechanical Engineers, in the Union.

Sally Sessions
Takes Tennis
Singles Crown
Deuce games were in the majority
last night at the Sports Building as
Sally Sessions, '44, battled to a win
over Jean Johnson, '42, to gain the
Fall Tennis Singles Tournament
Miss Sessions took the first set
6-4, but dropped the second to her
opponent, Miss Johnson, 6-3; the final
set showed a wider margin of games
than the other two: 6-2.
The new title holder comes from
Interlaken, N. Muskegon, and is a
member of Gamma Phi Beta. She
already holds the State Novice Tour-
nament title for 1939, the City title
of Greater Muskegon for 1940 and
the 1939 West Michigan tennis crown.
The two finals contestants met once
before on the courts; it was in the
State Novice tournament that Miss
Johnson was forced out of the quarter
finals by Miss Sessions.
Girls Win Awards
CHICAGO, Dec. 3.-(A)--Girls from
Michigan won blue awards in three
classes to lead 26 states in clothing
projects at the National 4-H Club
Congress today.4H

Five feet. four inches of litheyouth,
slack flowing hair, and perfect bal-
)nce slowed down out of a "sit spin"
and resolved into Mary Frances
Greschke, winner of the Senior Wom-
en's Figure Skating Trophy for 1940
in both the Detroit Times and Detroit
News competition.
"It's my favorite spin", explained
Mary Frances who calls it her "cork-
screw". Then she was off into her
own choreography of the "Blue Dan-
ube Fox Trot" as the loudspeaker
broke into her special music. Her
plaid skirt and dark hair whirling
in the same direction-her whole
body expressing her interpretation of
the music, Mary made a heart-lift-
ing picture.
Has Had Professional Offers
The sixteen-year-old girl's appear-
ance between the halves of the hoc-
key game Friday will not be her
introduction to the campus, for jun-
iors and seniors will remember her
applauded programs of two years
ago. Mary, who has had several
offers of professional engagements,
is a senior at Ann Arbor High School.
Although she has been skating
since the magnificent age of five,
the young ice-ballerina started her
first lessons two years ago, under
James Lowden of Detroit. She will
appear at the Windsor Skating Club
Christmas Party December 17 by
special invitation.
Studied At Lake Placid
Ten years of ballet and toe dancing
are her "ground work" background,
while six weeks at Lake Placid tlis
summer, under the supervision of
Gustave Lucci in free skating, Joseph
Caroll, "Dance Master of the Ice",
and Howard Nicholson, Sonia Henie's
instructor, are her most recent train-
ing periods.
Frequenters of the Coliseum will no-
tice Mary Frances at the rink every
day of the week. She practices up
to five hours each day-rehearsing,
perfecting, and trying new figures.
At present, she is concentrating on
the "double salchow" which looks as
difficult as its name implies.

and Saturday nights, and at other

hers at the ages of ten, eleven, and
twelve, after which she withdrew
from student competition. Mary ex-
pects to enter midwestern contests
this year.
Designs Own Clothes
Three times a week, the Greschkes
make a trip to Detroit to join the
Olympia Skating Club of that city.
Don Grissom, of the club, is Mary's
skating partner; together they ap-
peared in the Lake Placid Midsum-
mer Ice Operetta last summer.
Skating is not Mary's only forte;
with a special talent for designing
colorful costumes, she designs and
makes most of her exhibition ap-
parel. Her latest creation is tur-
quoise blue flannel with "yards and
yards" of magenta taffeta underskirts
and velvet trim at the waist. She
expects to concentrate her creative
artistic talents when she enters the
University School of Architecture
and Design in the fall.
Capability, ingenuity, diligence, en-
thusiasm and a big smile-that is
Mary Frances Greschke.
Uh-Uh, Says Dickinson
LANSING, Dec. 3-(P--The wo-
men who wrote those "mash" notes
to Governor Dickinson, who is 81,
don't have a chance, the Governor
says. He admitted he had received
several letters proposing or hinting
at marriage, but said the letters went
into his wastebacket.

Ruthven Tea

abeth Hegge, '41, will assist.
The annual winter Engineering
Ball sponsored by the Engineering
Council will be held from 9 p.m.
to 1 a.m. Friday, January 17, in
the Union Ballroom. It was err-
oneously announced in yesterday's
Daily that the dance would be
held on the 16th.


"Margin for Error", Broadway hit
of last season by Clare Booth, pre-
sents a mechanical perfection of plot
that is very intriguing, according to
Prof. William Halstead.
The play combines a psychological
study with a real touch of old-fash-
ioned melodrama. It is a satirical
play on Nazioem, from the same
amused viewpoint from which Miss
Booth wrote "The Women".
Set Is Realistic
Depicting the office of the German
consulate in Washington, the entire
play takes place on one set, which
is one of the largest ever constructed
on the stage of the Lydia Mendels-
sohn Theatre. It is also one of the
most~ realistic sets attempted by the
stage crew.
Detail is carried out even to the
dark oak paneling, which instead of
being highlighted and lowlighted on
a flat surface, is actually raised and
inserted like real paneling. The set
gives the illusion of a spacious of-
fice, height being carried out by dark
columns set into the paneling.
Difficult Sound Effects Used
One of the most interesting scenes
of the play will necessitate a diffi-
cult combination of sound effects
and action. While the voice of Hit-
ler comes over the radio, interspersed
To Play Badminton
Barbour Gymnasium will be open
for badminton playing for both men
and women from 7:15 p.m. to 9 p.m.
today, and from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Friday for women only. Tomorrow
is the last day to sign up for the wo-
men's singles tournament which will
begin Monday, Dec. 9, announced Jo-
anne Taylor, '42, badminton manager,
of the Women's Athletic Association.

with static and the roaring of the
German crowd, there. must be a
,rowd outside the consulate, with
?rowd noises and singing. Into the
midst of this a brick comes through
the window, with the clatter of brok-
en glass. The sound effect of the
glass must be achieved off-stage.
It will be found that the play
works itself out with almost mathe-
matical precision, and that it is one
of the most interesting of the group
of anti-Nazi plays and movies which
are so prevalent now, such as "For-
eign Correspondent", "I Married a
Nazi", and "The Dictator".
JGP Music
Group To Meet
Meeting at 5 p.m. today in the
League will be the music committee
for JGP, under Phyllis Waters, '42.
Notice as to the place of meeting will
be posted on the bulletin board. Mem-
bers are requested to bring their eli-
gibility cards.
All health rechecks for partici-
pants in any kind of work on JGP
must be obtained by Dec. 14. Junior
women are asked to leave their re-
check cards with Mrs. Parker, the
receptionist, who makes the appoint-
ments with the doctors forthesre-
checks in the Health Service, Miss
Waters declared.
