Ha Band To Hold Blackout Bounce' Tonight At l


Dirm Lighting
To Glamourize
Le ag u e Dan@ e
Joan Reutter Ard Bill Rhodes
To Feature New Arrangements
Of Three Song Favorites
Anyone curious about the inward'
appearance, or even the outward ap-
pearane, of a bomb, had better show
up from 9 p.m. to midnight today for
the "Blackout Bounce" in the League
Gordy Hardy's 11-piece band is
going to do the honors iii a ballroom
decorated .like a bmb in a black-
out. Chairman of decorations for
the dance is Gordon Hardy, Grad.
Special iiivitations are issued to
all air-raid wai'deens and their daugh-
ters and one of them is asked to
please bring ali air raid siren with
him, in case of difficulties. Since
blackouts and bombs don't require
style in tlios6 who attend, attire for
the evening may be according to in-
dividual taste.
Atmnoshiere Ilamorous
Certain understandable restric-
tions make it necessary for the
"Blackout" to be only a very partial
one, but the new system of lighting
in the League Ballroom is said to be
such that the whole place takes on
a glamorous, dim atmosphere, ready
at a moient's notice to cooperate
with national defense.
Late arrangements for the evening
include "Tangerine," and "I Remem-
ber You," both done by Bill Rhodes,
and that old favorite, "Lover, Come
Back To Me," which will feature
"Miss Michigan of Song," Joan Reut-
ter, and which was arranged by
Chuck Wellington.
New Sax Man Added
An extra-new tenor sax man has
also been added to the band. His
name is Art Smith and from all re-
ports he's supposed to be but good.
Door prizes, if any, will be supplied
by Hardy.
Table service is a special feature
of the League Ballroom, where there
are dances every weekend through-
out the semester, presenting Hardy
and orchestra. In case the air-raid
warden forgets to bring the siren,
Charlie Goodell and his trumpet will
In charge of tickets for the "Black-
out Bounce" is Hardy, not assisted
by anybody.

Style For The Miles

Need Of America For Nurses
Opens Positions To Women

'Straw In

The Wind'

War Production Board Cuts Out
Frills, Cuffs From New Styles

There are many fields open to Uni-
versity women in the War Emergency
but of all of these fields, perhaps one
of the most urgently calling is the
line of nursing, a procession which
affords innumerable possibilities.
The most important of these is the
service that can be done for the
country. From the moment a wom-
an steps into nurses' training, she is
aiding the war effort, since she is
then in a position to take over un-
specialized tasks previously assigned
to trained nurses and thus release
them for more specific work.
Army Needs Nurses
Upon graduaiton, she can answer
the call of the Army and Navy for
10,000 more nurses if she so desires.
Many top-ranking positions today
are held by women who answered
the call in the last war.
Besides service in the armed forces,
there are many positions to be filled
by graduate nurses in private duty,
institutional work, and public health.
Of the latter, there are positions toj
be had for 10,000 more graduates.j
This work requires unusual ability
and special training in the social
sciences and health education. Wom-
en trained along these lines will be

of inestimable service to the country
now and in the reconstruction fol-
lowing the war. In addition to social
work, and education, the public
health nurses can also function in the
fields of medicine and nutrition.
Specialized Jobs Open
There are many specialized jobs
to be obtained by women with nurs-
ing degrees as railroad and airline
hostesses and physician's office
Paul V. McNutt, director of the
Office of Emergency Management,
Defense Health and Welfare Serv-
ices, asked list February that 5.000
more students enroll in nursing
school. He will undoubtedly ask for
more in June and September.
Those who will graduate in June
and who want to be of real service
to their country in the emergency
should consider seriously the bene-
fits connected with nursing. Under-
graduates who are undecided as to
a field of concentration should also
devote attention to this possibility.
Those interested should contact Miss
Rhoda F. Reddig at the School of
Nursing. Remember nurses and more
nurses! is the cry of America today.

Although Easter Sunday is a thing
of the past. spring hats are still a
pertinent subject, and a fascinating
one at that.
Pictured above is 'a seasonal sailor
straw which is perky as well as flat-
tering to the face. It is unique in
that its crown ribbon and bow is
made of the same material as the hat
itself and thus it stands fresh and
stiff through April showers and May
Straw bonnets are the proverbial
spring "must have" and well they
may be. There is no other material
which gives as much zest to your
costume or fills the eye more pleas-
antly. Other straw styles include the
calot which perches on the back of
the head, and is adorned with either
colorful flowers or brightly-looped
A navy or gray pin striped suit
topped with this sailor straw in
bright red or kelly green would make
a fresh and colorful spring starter.
Mary Lou Ewing's
Betrothal Announced

There is a time to be feminine--_
so we're told; a time when ruffled
voile dresses and large picture hats-
if you want to do the thing up right-
are exactly in tune with the occasion,
and when-if you're conservative-
you can even look frail in a cotton
shirtwaist dress.
But if you're going in for summer
athletics of any kind, you might just
as well put any kind of dress-even
the most utilitarian of them-back
in the mothballs with your fur-lined
galoshes and lace-collared velveteen
There isn't a single summer sport
that you can put yourself into-and
have fun doing it-in which shorts or
slacks or some kind of substitute isn't
absolutely necessary.
The substitute is what is pictured
today. If you haven't your summer
sports clothes dictionary on hand,
and you've forgotten the terminology
from last summer, the name of the
above little arrangement is culottes--
and why don't you just try them on
for size?
These particular models are made
in fine quality tan gabardine and
are tailored so cleverly that when
walking, the wearer seems to be
wearing a beautifully-made suit
The particular advantages of cu-
lottes are many. For hiking or biking
they are unmatched; they leave the
legs free, and still protect them from
brambles and thorns. If you freckle
-don't lose a minute, but whip out
and buy yourself a couple of these
outfits; they're definitely your stuff.
And finally, the biggest advantage
of all is the magnificent way they
conceal-shall we say--too-plentful
curves. Any gal who feels like a
large and overgrown tomato in shorts
and feels, likewise like an overstuffed
sofa in slacks has the answer to a
heartfelt prayer in the number pic-
With an envelope of draped and
tailored gabardine wrapping her up
stylishly, the young lady in the pic-
ture gave herself an especially ready-
for-sports look by plaiting her long
bob into pigtails and tying colored
ribbon bows at the ends.
A sailor hat of the gabardine which
makes the dress is perched on her
head, completing a migh-ty smooth
sports outfit for she's certainly gone
to a lot of trouble for nothing!)

The War Production Board expects
to save 100 million yards of rayon,
cotton, silk and wool under the new
curtailing regulations oi women's
clothes and intends to enforce this
federal law with stringent fines to
manufacturers who violate it. From
now on, women's styles will not be
dictated by Schiaparelli, Lanvin and
other couturiers but by orders issued
by the WPB.
Frills Are dut
All furbelows such as frills, pleats
and coat cuffs will be henceforth
considered as unpatriotic as six spare
tires or empty defense stamp book-
lets. Standardization of current
styles and conservation of material
are the aims of the new program
but, insists H. Stanley Marcus, au-
thor of the measure, the WPB is not
attempting to put Americanwomen
in uniform and, he continued, it is
endeavoring to avoid regimentation.
Marcus eased his verdict by the
following statement, "I don't believe
you could kill fashion by this order.
If we decreed barrels for women, it
would be just a few days until barrels

Lawyers Show
Pressed Pants
At Crease Ball
Long, long ago-it must have been
a long time ago, the lawyers were
considered the "Bums of the cam-
pus"-or so Seymour Spelman, '42L,
publicity chairman for this year's
Crease Ball, somewhat shamefacedly
admits. It seems that they only
bothered to have their pants pressed'
once a year.
The all-important occasion? Their
annual ball, of course. And that's
why the lawyers decided to call this
big event, Crease Ball. At least that's
the committee's explanation of the
almost forgotten origin of the name.
And they emphasize the fact that
it all happened away back in the
dim, dark past--for after all, they
maintain, no one, not even the en-
gineers, could accuse the lawyers of
being the campus bums, for everyone
knows they are the most polished,
the best dressed, the most sought-
after men on campus!
So the lawyers are preparing to don
their best clothes, with knife-like
creases in the pants when they open
up the main lounge and dining room
of the Lawyer's Club to attend their
annual official Crease Court with
campus coeds in tow from 9 p.m. to
1 a.m. on the night of Friday, May 1.

at their; present dimensions and
tucking, pleating and shirring are
'out'! As for women's trousers, they
must be worn cuffless and beltless.
One unit price cannot cover a separ-
ate jacket, cape, boleros, coats or
redingotes, although these gadgets
can be purchased separately to
match or contrast with an outfit.
Hems and belts can not be-more

coats cannot have patch pockets or

Conscience Is Guide
For the woman who designs and
makes her own clothes, her conscience
must be her guide as to how much
material is 'legal.' The Board is
hoping that these home dressmakers
follow the example of styles set by
the regulated commercial designers.
. Dress designers are expected to
run into difficulty in creating orig-
inal models with those important
'touches of distinction.' Most of them
will undoubtedly take the regulations
in stride however and accept them
as a challenge rather than a handi-
cap to their artistic talents. Wits
will have to be used in concocting
smart styling but, -since simplicity
has always been the key note of good
style, the job should not be too diffi-
cult. Now that materials are limited,
line will be more important than
Purchases May Be Made
These regulations will not affect
clothes now stocked in stores but
only those to be manufactured in the
future. In other words, a consumer
can still purchase garments which
do not conform with the WPB regu-
lations although the restrictions on
wool went into effect last Thurs-
day and will be reflected in the
clothes sold for fall and winter wear.
June 19 is the date that cotton, rayon
and other material restrictions go
into effect-a date which is after
most of the summer's clothes .are
The War Production Board has
passed decrees on almost every de-
tail of women's wardrobes, limiting
the size of sleeves, sashes, belts,
pockets and skirt lengths, as well as
passing a long list of other restric-
tions. The American woman's dress
will, henceforth, be simple and
stream-lined and it is possible that
the emergency laws may introduce
a new concept of fashion.
