AwardI Petitions
To Be Accepted
Beginning Today
Petitioning for the three $100 Eth-
el McCormick scholarships, awarded
each year to outstanding junior wo-
men, will begin today and continue
through noon Saturday in the Under-
graduate Office of the League, where
petition blanks may be obtained. The
Executive Council of the League
Council will interview those petition-
ing Thursday, March 12.
The scholarships will be granted on
the basis of ability and leadership as
exemplified by participation in the
women's activities under the merit
system, character, scholarship and
The McCormick scholarship fund'
is supported by the student activities
of the League with each class pro-
ject contributing a large percentage
of its earnings to this fund. In addi,
tion to the questions asked each peti-
tioner on the application blank, two
letters of recommendation concern-
ing the applicant's life and character
are requested.
Each applicant is asked on her ap-
plication blank for information about
any honors or awards received previ-
ously, her extracurricular activities
and how her years in school have
been financed. Each woman must
also write a brief statement regarding
her plans for the future and what
kind of work she wishes to do after
the completion of her college course.
The winners of the scholarships
last year were Rosebud Scott, Lois
Gish and Elizabeth Ann Walker.
Are Necessary
In All Fields
Total warfare today is exactly what
the words imply-no longer does the
man at the front do all the necessary
and important work. For every sol-
dier in action there are ten people
behind him supplying him with
things from guns to butter.
The national economy is construc-
ted so that the natural slack of re-
sources can not all be utilized or put

into action. Guns and butter can
come from no one but the consumer.
The consumer can fight the Axis as
effectively as the man at the front
by cooperating with the economists
willingly and cheerfully.
Pinch Hurts
The public has already felt the
pinch of curtailments in the tire and
automobile supply of the country. In
smaller articles, however, the pinch
does not yet hurt; but rumors of fu-
ture shortages have sent (onsumers,
women especially, to the nearest gro-
cer or department store to buy up a
good supply "just in case."
Curtailments are a necessary part;
of winning the war and the hoarding
of those articles curtailed, impedes1
the flow of goods, already distributed
by the shift of goods to war purposes.
Substitutes Are In
Lisle stockings are fast becoming
an accepted substitute for silk in
every woman's wardrobe. The woman
of today is an ingenious person and
will undoubtedly find adequate sub-
stitutes for every curtailed product.
Leather boots for rubber, solid colors
for prints (dyes are vital for their
chemicals), and pearls and shell jew-
elry for metal.
Well, a comforting thought in look-

Yes, we know that slacks are pretty
much taboo for general campus wear,
but there are lots and lots of times
when they do come in handy around
the dorm or the sorority house, or
for that matter on the spring picnics
and walks which will come thick and
fast ere long.
The slacks pictured here are of the
strictly man-tailored type, with knife
press and narrow cuffs. The plaid
shirt is just as strictly tailored except
for the slightly full long sleeve. It
adds a color contrast to the quiet
browns, navy blues, or grays in which
this slack outfit may be found.
Just in case you want something a
little less tailored and a little less
sombre in color, thre's a rayon fab-
ric made up into smoth, cuffless
slacks with a jerkin of matching
color and material. It has deep patch
pockets and can be worn with your
favorite skirts too.
If you're the definitely daring type,
there's a new outfit of tapered plaid
wool trousers, to be worn with a
"sloppy sweater" or a tailored blouse.
Or how about a complete slack suit
in gray menswear flannel?
Petitioning For WAA
Positions Will End
Petitioning for positions on execu-'
tive board of WAA will continue
until 5 p.m. tomorrow, at which time
all petitions must be turned in to
the desk of the Women's Athletic
Building. They may be obtained at
the desk of the. W.A.B. in the office
of Barbour Gymnasium, or on the
WAA bulletin board of the Under-
graduate Office of the League.
Interviewing will be held from 3
p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Thursday, 2:30 p.m.
to 5:30 p.m. Friday, and 1 p.m. to
5 p.m. Saturday at the W.A.B.

Stomp' Offers
Novel Prizes
Defense Stamp Holders To Get
Local Merchants' Contribution
For the few scattered men who feel
that beautiful women aren't attrac-
tion enough for the "Defense Stomp"
-3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Thursday in
the League Ballroom-and vice ver-
sa, the elaborate door prizes to be
offered will make it practically im-
possible .for anyone to stay away.
The local merchants have really
been more than generous with dona-
tions for this affair. For the women
there will be perfume, linen hand-
kerchiefs and much "prioritized
stockings coming from campus shops.
Prizes Offered
And for the men who hold that
charm, grace and even patriotism
couldn't bring them to a tea dance,
the committee is offering wallets,
Argyle socks, ties, shirts and other
essentials contributed by the better
local men's stores.
"All you have to do," Bud Cox, '42,
general chairman, said, "is dance
with the right person." In an at-
tempt to clarify his rather obscure
statement, we'll go through this
"right person" process again-most
intricate process to say the least.
Get Right Partner
Upon entering the ballroom, each
person receives a sealed envelope-
one color for the women and another
for the men. Inside of some of them
are defense stamps. Whenannounce-
ment is made (~half-way through the
afternoon) to open the envelopes,
the man dancing with the woman
holding a defense stamp receives a
door prize and the same applies to
the woman dancing with the man
holding a stamp.
In other words, let your intuition
guide you to the right person and
while following its guidance you have
a good opportunity to become ac-
quainted. There will be approxi-
mately 30 hostesses to help keep
things rolling.
Besides, patriotism is all the thing
nowadays and you will be making a
definite contribution to national de-
fense by simply attending. Gordon
Hardy, '42SM, and his new ten-piece
band will furnish the music.
Society Members
To Sell Carnations
Senior Society members will sell
white carnations in the League and
in the various dormitories to those
planning to attend Assembly Ball
this Friday.
Women may obtain the flowers at
the League desk, where they may also
obtain tickets to the dance. Resi-
dents of Mosher Hall may get theirs
from Jean Hubbard, '42, who is also
in the dormitory; those in Jordan
Hall may obtain them from Betty
Partenfelder, '42; those in Martha
Cook from Elizabeth Luckham, '42;
those in Betsy Barbour from Doro-
thy Anderson and those in Helen
Newberry from Peg Sanford.
Ann Arbor Independents can be
supplied by Jean Krise or Doris
Daily tryouts for the women's
staff are reminded t there will
be a meeting at 3:30 p.m. today
in the Publications Building.

Petites Pommes de Terre
The Love Is A Beautiful Thing department is taken up this week with
"Pay Off," a charming institution of one-year standing which we are told
is a tradition. This dance is expressly designed to help the females pay off
their J-Hop dates; it seems like a rather commercial proposition, but we are
told that this is not the case-it is a beautiful thought. At any rate, the
dance is characterized by the absence of J-Hop dates-it's all right to go to
J-Hop with just any old burlap sack-people understand.
Couples who were paying off and being paid off, respectively, included
Hilda Johnson and Tommy Booth, Barbara Jenswold and Don Folkman,
Joey McGrath and Fred Marble, Sally Walsh and C. Freeman Alexander,
Sue Wood and Pete Hogg, Conny McLeary and Dale Chamberlain, Jean
Whittemore and Bruce Renaud, Janet Veenboer and Bob Bartlett. Charlotte
Conover and Reynold Kraft, Lois Fromm and Hugh Ayers, Betty Lou Duval
and Frank Powers, Jean Cordell and Elmer Hitt, Jane
Kelsey and Bob Mantho, Joan Reutter and Dave El-
E-dridge, Jean Mills and Bud Cox, and Louise Keatley
w +~~ and Whitey Fraumann.
U t onfusion . ,..
The Department of Utter Confusion-you may have
noticed, incidentally, that the only way we can get a New Yorkerish tinge
to this whole business is to just lift their stuff and superimpose it-however
the aforementioned department is occupied this week with the newly-formed
syndicate of Sapp and Gel6. Both are on The Daily, and we know it's
against the rules to give publicity to the Publications Building or its settlers,
so henceforth these two people shall remain nameless, except as Sapp and
Well, this apartment has in it these two boys. It also has in it two
square feet of space, one small stove, one small icebox, a Modern Library
Giant Edition of Ulysses, well-blackened on the edges in certain specified
parts-or "parts," and two cots, necessarily in a partly vertical position.
The whole thing is typical and sort of funny in itself, but the culmina-
tion of a certain amount of annoyance caused by the cramped quarters
came the other night when Geld-he of the Mississippi Gel6s-dragged out
an old Southern remedy for a cough he was developing in the form of a
Spanish onion and something which shall remain nameless except as a
cough syrup. After preliminary attacks of asphyxia, Sapp gagged a bit,
gave up trying to study his Poly Sci and flunked the quiz the next day. It
isn't that either of them are sensitive about it or anything, but mentioning
the scene which followed-on which we shall draw a merciful curtain-to
Gele, especially, is sort of like asking Goering about the winter sports at
Developments O Slide Rule ball


Plans Shrouded In Deep


The presence of two bona fide
cigarette girls at this year's Slide
Rule Ball, to be held Friday, March
27, in the Union Ballroom, was indi-
cated yesterday when the news leaked
out following a secret meeting of Ball
committee members.
A usually reliable source divulged
the information that the girls would
be "appropriately attired," and
would dispense defense stamps as well
as the usual cigarettes, cigars, chew-
ing gum and other wares. '
Secrecy shrouded other develop-,
ments of the meeting, but it was hint-
ed that further revelations may be
expected daily, and that startling

publicity stunts will soon be the rule
rather than the exception in the en-
gineering college.
Abandoned because of insufficient
methods to carry it out was a sure-
fire plan to release several thousand
balloons, every fiftieth one to carry
a complimentary ticket to the Slide
Rule Ball.
Chairman of the ball this year is
Burr J. French, '42E, editor-in-chief
of The Michigan Technic, engineer-
ing college publication sponsoring the
dance. Freeman Alexander, '43E,
Technic circulation manager, is chair-
man of the publicity committee.
