To Scholarship
Barnet's I 5-Piece Swing Band
To Play Favorite Arrangements;
Buck Dawson Is Jive Chairman
Tickets for Michigan's first Swing
Concert, two-and-one-half hours of
"solid jive," to be staged by Charlie
Barnet and his orchestra at 8 p.m.
Wednesday, April 22, in Hill Audi-
torium for the benefit of the Univer-
sity's Bomber Scholarship fund, will
go on general sale tomorrow on the
diagonal.
Fraternities will be contacted to-
day at dinner while salesmen will be
on hand tomorrow to sell tickets in
the men's dormitories. Proceeds for
the concert, which is being sponsored
by Alpha Phi Omega, men's service
fraternity, in cooperation with the
University Music Society, will be
turned over to augment the "Bomber
Scholarship" fund.
To Play Favorites
Charlie Barnet, who, according to
various national polls and "Metro-
nome," authority on swing, has been
voted the "world's greatest saxo-
phonist," will present his 15-piece
band in swing arrangements of
"Pompton Turnpike," "Between 18th
and 19th on Chestnut Street," and
"Cherokee," which are his most pop-
ular recordings.
Barnet's aggregation, considered
by "Metronome" as the best of the
white "hot" bands, literally burned
down Palomar Ballroom in Los An-
geles, California-with their "hot"
arrangements, where they filled an
engagement recently. The band sky-
rocketed to fame following an ap-
pearance at the "Famous Door" and
the Paramount Theatre in New York.
Dawson Heads Committee
Heading the committee in charge
of the arrangements for the concert
is Buck Dawson, '43, who invites
Michigan students to "sit and sweat
with Charlie Barnet" for the benefit
of their own enjoyment and thex
scholarship fund.1
Other committee members includer
Martha Kinsey, '44, and Moly Hoff-1
mann, '43, in charge of women'si
promotion; Robert Eich, '45, and
Carson Gruenwald, '44, publicity;t
Dick Schoel, '43, assisted by Stuart
Churchill, '43, and George Harris,
'45, tickets; and Will Coulter, '45,
arrangements. Also assisting will be
Bob Cope, '42, president of Alpha Phi
Omega.
Mortarboards
Hold Initiation
'BWOC's' Tapped At Banquet
Get Pins In Secret Ceremony
Mortarboards, clad in their official
regalia of caps and gowns, jumped
in and out of a moving van a night
ago, ran between the rain drops at
their stops and trudged up and down
stairs in their search for, and tapping
of, next year's members of the senior
honorary society.
At 10:30 p.m. (with late permission
et al, of course) the kerchiefed and
reversibled group arrived at the
League after having tramped with
muddy feet into approximately 20
houses, singing their special Pi Sigma
Alpha song.
A candle-lit ceremony was held in
the League Chapel during which the
new members of Mortarboard were
awarded the distinctive pin of the
society.
Women who were tapped at In-
stallation Banquet last week and in-
itiated Monday night, chosen for this
honor on the basis of scholarship,

service, and leadership are: Barbara

r --

Another chapter in the history of WAA began to unfold when Donelda
Schaible, retiring president, handed over her duties to Nancy Filstrup in an
impressive installation Monday at the WAB. With the sturdy background
set up by the past board, the new board is raring to go and hopes to make
this a banner year. There's lots to do at this time of emergency and with
cooperation of campus women, WAA hopes to do its part.
Hardly having a chance to realize what's been happening, Nancy whizzed
off last night with Miss Marie Hartwig on the Wolverine to Wellesley Col-
lege where they will attend the tenth national convention of the American
Federation of College Women. This organization of which, we are proud
to say, Miss Hartwig is a national officer, was founded during the last World
War, and consists of about 250 schools all over the country. The national
convention is held once every three years. so there will be many activities
planned for our sojourners. General problems of athletic organization and
woman's place in national defense will be the big topics discussed.'
The travelers will be back "hy'ar" in the West Sunday, and Nancy has a
supper meeting planned for the WAA Board Tuesday.
- * *
"Fun" is the key word to describe "Rec-Rally," if it could be described
in one word. WAA was really pleased to see the women and even men on
campus turn out. About 60 men and women ran around from sport to sport,
that final evening, playing one game, and cutting it short to try something
else. With dances to keep them going for an hour and a half, the committee
was disappointed, because everyone was at the end of his "second wind"
I after an hour of steady square dancing. Guess we'll have to practice up.
Candid camera fiends take note! Here's the place and time to exchange
ideas on the latest gadget you invented for your camera, or to compare
prize-winning upshots of the Law Quad. Hobby Lobby is stressing photog-
raphy, so anyone interested in that hobby or any other hobby, as far as that
goes, is urged to come out. Meeting will be held at 4:30 p.m. Thursday at
the WAB, so that means the first one is tomorrow.
Since the softball tournament has bravely had to wait for the snow to
melt, a little rain can't stop the games. With an optimistic outlook the
games have begun, and rain or shine, the first leg of the tournament will be
played off in two weeks--we hope.
Members of the Outing Club are another set of optimistic people. Sun-
day has been set for a hike and picnic supper. Those attending will meet
at 5 !).m. at the WAB.
Lots of organizing has been going on over in the tennis corner with Jo
Lloyd, new tennis sports manager, responsible. A board has been set, up
consisting of the following three people: Nancy Hattersley, Connie Ham-
mett and Helen Arata. They are to help organize the club and decide its
policies.
"Keeping the head down and left arm straight" is only a small bit of
the technique the women golfers on campus must keep in mind if they want
to be one of the eight winners of the golf tournament now in swing. Re-
member all you golfers have to do is to play eighteen holes on the University
course and hand your scores in to Mrs. Stewart Hanley before April 27.

Group To Hold
Meeting Today
Duties Of Sub-Committees
To Be Explained In League;
Eligibility Cards Are Required
New manager of the social affairs
of the League, Peg Brown, '43, chair-
man of the social committee, will be-
gin the duties of her office by hold-
ing a mass meeting at 4:30 p.m. today
for all women who are interested in
continuing work on the committee
or in joining for the first time.
Duties of the social committee in-
clude management of the Ruthven
Teas, which are held from 4 p.m. to
6 p.m. on two Wednesdays during
every month, the 7-11 Club in the
League, the style shows sponsored
by the League, the Acquaintance
Bureau, the Guide Service, and sev-
eral bridge tournaments which are
held during the year.
"This meeting is the last oppor-
tunity for women who wish to sign
up and everyone interested must at-
tend whether they were previously on
the committee or not," Miss Brown
said. Eligibility cards will be required
of committee members.
At this meeting there will be an
opportunity for women to petition
for the sub-chairnanships of each of
these functions. The room in which
the meeting is to be held will be
posted on the bulletin board in the
League lobby.
Slosson Will Speak
To Jordan Residents
Prof. and Mrs. Preston Slosson will
be the guests of Ruth Collins, '45,
and the Current Events Committee
of Jordan Hall at dinner tomorrow,
after which Professor Slosson will
speak to the residents on the war
and world affairs. Special invita-
tions have been extended to all Mo-
sher Hall and Stockwell Hall women.
At this time the dormitory's $240
contribution for the support of Ann
and Terry Steveson, British refugee
twins. will be presented to Mrs. Slos-
son, local chairman of the Save the
Children Federation.

The sole casualty in the unex-
plained aerial bombardment of Ann
Arbor's manufacturing suburbs early
yesterday lies today in a cheerless,
cubicle in the University Hospital, a;
man wronged by a capricious fate.
It was during the dark hours be-
fore the dawn that a University stu-
dent, W. "Buck" Dawson, '43, was
struck down without warning by a
timed bomb left in the wake of the
unidentified flight of aircraft, pre-
sumably those of the Prodigal Sun,
which wrought "relatively light"
havoc upon the city's factories yes-'
terday.
A Civilian Attacked
Dawson is a civilian, a man of
peace. But this is war in which the
innocent and the guilty, the strong
and the weak, suffer the indiscrim-
inate scourging of a war-mad Yellow
Peril.
Dawson will let nothing stop him in
his hysterial search for publicity for
the Wynx Dance which is to be held
Friday night from 9 p.m: to midnight
in the Union Ballroom. He. bribed
the counting committee which was
to determine the campus vote in the
Vote-For-Your Favorite Band Sur-
vey connected with last year's Soph
Prom to count the votes in favor of
a band which had already been hired.
He bribed a clothing store proprie-
tor in Detroit to sell him an overcoat
which he could say was given him-
that stunted his allowance for two
months. But this final coup is the
apex of everything; any man who
can bribe a Jap pilot to bomb him-
just for dance publicity must be
handed this week's biscuit with a
congratulatory word or two.
The Wynx Answer
In answer, therefore, to this pre-
arranged insidious and . marrow-
chilling threat of destruction from
the skies, Air Raid Precautions will
be taken Friday night by Wyvern and
Sphinx to keep civilians off the

Wynx Constructs Air Raid Shelter
For 'Refugees' In Union Friday

streets-and in the Union Ballroom
from nine to twelve.
All students who do not have the
security of private shelters for them-
selves and the ones, they hold dear,
are advised by the interceptor Com-
mand that a fully equipped shelter
will be constructed at the Union,
with morale sustaining group recrea-
tion furnished in the form of door
prizes, both dead and alive.
Bill Sawyer and his orchestra will
play for the cowering refugees and
will feature vocalists Gwen Cooper
and Al Burt.
Exhibition Of China
Will Be Held Today
In League By Scroll
New patterns and old favorites in
Wedgewood china will be displayed
from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. today in the
League as a project of Scroll Society,
senior honorary for affiliated women.
All students are invited to attend
the display, Mildred Radford, presi-
dent of the society, said, in explain-
ing Scroll's plans in setting up the
table displays. The room number
will be posted, she safd.
Plans are going forward, Miss Rad-
ford also disclosed, for a campus-
wide rummage sale to be sponsored
by Scroll. Members of the group will
canvass sorority houses and dormi-
tories for discarded "rummage" with
clothing and personal items wel-
comed. Following the sale, Scroll
will then donate a part of the pro-
ceeds from their project to the
Bomber Scholarship fund.
Le Cercle Francais will present "La
Belle AVenture," a comedy in three
acts by de Cailletet, de Flers and
Rey, at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, April
29, in the Lydia Mendelssohn The-
atre.
