sonally, drop around to the Women's
Athletic Building tomorrow anytime
between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. to spend
a few moments at the first meeting of
the student auxiliary of the Washte-3
naw County Red Cross unit. There
you will find tiny six-gored skirts,
which when completed will make
some small girl thankful for your
humanitarian spirit.
Perhaps you havent time to finish
a whole garment, or even to finish
the basting. It takes but a few mo-
ments to run up one seam on one of
the three sewing machines; that seam
will make your help an integral part
of the finished product.
Perhaps you cannot use the sewing
machine, or even baste a hem straight.
Can you press, or pull white basting
stitches, use a pinking scissors, or
pin a garment together? Then the
Red Cross unit can use you-every
minute of your time, and every iota
of your effort.

on the part of the voters.
Only permanent representatives
may vote on the constitution and
treasurer. They are all advised by
Miss Walpole to attend the meeting
since it is necessary for a quorum to
be present before a vote may be taken.
After the constitution has been
read and discussed there will be a
skit interlude before a vote is taken.

Approximately 166 student social
careers have been aided and abetted1
this fall through the League dancel
classes which have provided an op-}
portunity not only to learn new dance1
steps, but also to make friends and
meet people.
So far this semester about six of
the eight lessons in the dance class
series have been held. The classes,
sponsored by the League and man-
aged by the Dance Class committee,
are run in two series of eight lessons
each; one series is given each semes-
ter. Once each week meetings of the
beginning and advanced groups are
All women who enter the classes,
not excluding the beginners, act as
teach-ig assistants to the men. In-
structors to the entire group are Miss
Ethel McCormick and Miss Barbara
MacIntyre of the League. About 15

women make up the dance class com-
mittee of which Margaret Whitte-
more '41, is the chairman.
Dance steps taught in the classes
are as completely modern as the
Willkie waltz which was taught the
beginning class this year during the
presidential campaign. The basic
waltz and fox trot also have been
taught the beginners, while the ad-
vanced class have learned the modern
polka, the tango, and are beginning
the rhumba.
After the completion of this se-
meseter's series in January, a party
will be held for the members of the.
two classes combined at which time
a practical application of all that has
been learned will be demonstrated.
Doris Arner, '43, will be in charge
of the affair.
The classes next semester will fol-
low the same scheme as this year.

"In the University Hospital many
of our patients are confined for an
extensive period of time and we at-
tempt to bring to these people the
same normal social experiences that
they would be encountering were they
in the outside world," explained Dor-
othy Ketcham, head of the Hospital
social service department.
Especially with children, declared
Miss Ketcham, do we emphasize the
normal continuance of life. The ad-
justment to illness must be made,
and the self-expression of the patient
provided for, she said. "Recreational
play is important for the young folks
within the institution and it must be
supplied for each child as his indi-
vidual case permits."
Recorded Concert
To Be Held Today
Another concert of classical records
will be held from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30
p.m. today in the Terrace Room of
the Union.
It has been announced by Bob
Samuels, '42, chairman of organiza-
tions, that most emphasis will be
placed on appreciation of the music
rather than upon explanation. Every-
one is invited to attend these con-
certs. Future programs shall include
the works of such famous masters as
Beethoven, Bach, Rimsky Korsakoff
and Hayden.
These concerts are held every Mon-
day, Wednesday and Friday. Those be-
ing presented on Monday and Friday
are given in the Terrace Room and
those presented on Wednesday are
held in Room 302 of the tnion.

Outstanding in her field of social
work as an administrator and author,
Miss Ketcham feels that "a social
worker must be able to present an
idea to the other fellow in terms that
he will understand." She stressed
the futility of knowledge without the
ability to transfer it in a manner
that will enable the patient to use it
for his own benefit.
"In our case work you take the
patient as he is in his circumstances
and you work as reasonably as your
skills permit for his objectives," Miss
Ketcham pointed out in illustrating
the tactics of the medical social work-
er in the Hospital.
Personal letters establish the im-
portant contact between the hom
and the Hospital for the out-of-town
patient that must be kept up, sh
stated. In these individual notes
which are written in an informal and
friendly tone, Miss Ketcham said tha
the social worker describes both th
physical and mental condtion of th
patient and relates the progress he
may be making.
"The Hospital is a unit drawing
persons from all over the State, and
we endeavor to cooperate in the de,
velopment of other capacities, that
the patient may give evidence of pos-
sessing while here, as well as upon
the concentration of his physical de-
velopment, Miss Ketcham declared.
