Change In Stamps
With each ticket the purchaser
receives part of the price back in
defense stamps, which in itself defi-
nitely makes this dance one of those
"worthy causes." Also, upon enter-
ing the' ballroom each person re-
ceives a sealed envelope--one color
fornthe women and another for the
Inside some of these envelopes are
defense stamps. When the announce-

pose of promoting mixing.

No More Kisses

In the last war enemy agents re-

Student Interviews Reveal Value
By PHYLLIS PRESENT
Red Cross defense courses have
been offered by the Michigan League
since the first semester of the pres-
ent year. At the beginning only
courses in first aid, home nursing and
motor mechanics were given.
There were five classes in first aid,
'two in home nursing, and one class
in motor mechanics. The first aid
course meant a two-hour period of
class with quizzes once a week at the
League. Home nursing was a two-
dour period of class plus an hour of
pictice held at Health Service, and
motor mechanics was a two-hour
period of class and practical w/ork
given at University High School.
Added to these courses mentioned
above, this semester advanced first
aid, child care, Braille, nutrition and
nurses' aide are sponsored by the Red
Cross. Besides all those, under the
physical education department, co-
recreational leadership and body-
conditioning classes are held. Type-
writing is also offered at University
High Schol as a defense course.
These classes have all been more than
We interviewed some of the women
.on campus who completed the first
Lorraine Judson, '43 made this
statement: "The first course in first
aid was very complete. Even though
3tudents don't put hours of time on
the course (although everyone must'
study to pass), I believe it is worth-
while, as you learn at least what not
to do-which is very important. The
quizzes were very good, but I suggest
that even more practical problems
be given for the students to work
Miss Dixon Says
Ann Dixon, '43, said: "The first
aid course was very practical and a
good basic foundation. I suggest that
it be followed by the advanced course
in first aid, if possible, though. The
best part of the course was bandagesE
and traction, for practical 'everydayf
Joanne Gross, '43, who had just1
completed her home nursing course
as it continued through the second
semester said, "This course is ex-
cellent, because it can be used in
peace time as well as during the war.'
You learn how to take care of every-
Mne from babies to the aged. In the
last war a girl who had had only
-ome nursing training was in charge
Af a tent with 60 soldiers in it. Miss
Gross, who is now taking first aid,
suggests that home nursing either be
followed up by nurses' aide or first
aid courses. .
Nancy Griffin, '44, remarked,
"Home nursing is more practical
than any course that I have taken in
a long time, as it's something you'll
use all your life. It teaches you per-
sonal, public health and mental hy-
giene. The course is taught in a very1
practical manner as we actually
worked around sick people in the
Careful Study Needed
Miss Griffin, who just finished her
home nursing course, also took firstj
aid last semester. This semester she
is taking advanced first aid, and up-
on completing that expects to enter
the instructor's course, soon to be
offered. She said concerning first
aid, "It must be taken seriously, and
carefully learned, as one only parti-
ally trained might step into a situa-
tion and make an awful blunder."
"Charlie" Boyd, '43, stated, "Motor
mechanics was so interesting that I'm
taking the advanced course now. WeI
'wore slacks, though the first classes
were not practical lessons as we had
too much to learn about engines. At
least I can change a good tire now.
I think the advanced course is very
necessary to get the full value of the
first one. With first aid and motor
mechanics training, one can become
a member of the Motor Corp."
Pencil And Flashlight
Combination Is Last
Word For Blackouts
The latest precaution for black-
outs has appeared on the market in
the form of lead pencils equipped
with flashlight bulbs enclosed in the
glass barrel. They are capable of
throwing more than enough light to
enable writing in total darkness.
Not only will they prove a great
asset to air raid wardens, but will
also come in handy for taking notes
at lectures or theatres, or jotting
down phone messages if you happen
to be caught in one of those phone
booths with the light burned out.
SJust a twist of the barrel and the
light flashes on. These nifty little
novelties come in either white and
red, or white and blue color combina-

leaders have not neglected this factor
in their seasonal chapeaux.

above which consists of a close fit-
ting crown bedecked with a brilliant
ornamental bird perched above the
forehead. The ingenious woman can
alternate the ornament with either
multi-colored plumes to match her
newest suit and accessory combina-
tion or with a black velvet bow for
the "strictly dress" occasion.
The new calots are as perky as
they are durable. Crochet one be-

Several department stores are offer-
ing calots of wool to match their
classic suits and suggest a jewelled
pin for wear on either the calot or
the lapel of the suit when a dressy
touch is needed.
Perennial sailor hats are back this
year but in a new and exciting style.
A tiny, straw version of the sailor
hat is perched on the front of the
smooth "upped" pompadour. Then,
ever popular, is the saucer-rimmed
sailor style which is always a flat-

the brim and a twisted cord of the
same wool around the crown. The
brim is wide and flattering to the
