Auto Search
Brings Results
Two Tires Of Senior Ball Car
Are Uncovered in Huron River
Investigation to find the person or
persons who kidnapped the official
"automobile" of the Senior Ball, to
have been awarded in a grand lottery
as some couple's means of transpor-
tation to and from the Ball, took a
turn for the better yesterday when
official Ball detectives recovered two]
of the car's missing five tires from the
Huron River.
Acting on an anonymous tip re-
ceived by phone yesterday noon, Ball
chairman Tom Williams, '42E, dis-
patched men to drag the river in the
vicinity of "The Island," and one
tire was located soon after.
Continued efforts are being made
to find the three tires still missing,
Williams said.
Abducted from its parking place
behind University Hall on Tuesday,
the car, vintage about 1905, was re-
turned Wednesday with a/note say-
ing that the tires would be held for
ransom, and would be returned only
if all plans to hold a Senior Ball this
year were abandoned immediately.
"We shall fight to the bitter end,"
Williams declared.
The Suomi Club will end their ac-
tivities for this semester with a pic-
nic to be held at 5:30 p.m. tomor-
row at the Island.

Star Of 'No Time For Comedy'
Has Rich TheatricalBackground

From carrying a spear in Christo-
pher Morley's "Black Crook" to play-
ing the lead opposite Frances Led-
erer in "No Time For Comedy" has
been the life story of Edith Atwater,
who will come to the Lydia Mendels-
sohn Theatre in the latter production
May 11.
At the tender age of 16 Miss At-
water decided that school didn't of-
fer the excitement she desired out of
life. For as long as she had been old
enough to know what the word
"stage" meant that had been her
ambition. Finally she decided to
make her own opportunities instead
of "just waiting around for a break."
This "break" came in the form of a
walk-on part, as an Amazon, in
"Black Crook."
Attended American Academy
To polish off the edges of her
natural talenit, Miss Atwater attended
the American Academy in New York.
The next few years found fortune
guiding the path of Edith Atwater.
She received parts in such plays
as "Brittle Heaven," with Dorothy
Gish, "Mask of Kings," presented by
the Theatre Guild with Dudley
Diggs and Margo, "Country Wife,"
"Susan and God," with Gertrude
Lawrence, and toured the country in
"Springtime For Henry." She cre-
ated the part of the secretary in the
play "The Man Who Came To Din-
ner" with Monte Wooley. It was in
this play that Ann Arbor saw her
Spent Time In Hollywood
Miss Atwater has had a taste of
every phase of theatrical life. She
traveled in vaudeville with Edmund
Lowe, playing the "girl in the act,"
which was a short mystery skit. As
Miss Atwater put it, "That was quite!
an experience. On week-ends we
would play five shows a day, often
never leaving the theatre."
She has also spent a year in Holly-
wood, playing in such pictures as
"We Went to College," with Walter
Abel, Hugh Herbert and Charles But-
terworth, and "Gorgeous Hussy,"
with Joan Carwford. "However, as
is the fate of so many young movie
actresses, in the latter production I
was practically completely left on
the cutting room floor."
Tennis Is Favorite Sport
Tennis is Miss Atwater's only re-
laxation from the stage. "I don't
have time for anything else, for,
fortunately, I have been almost con-
tinuously employed." But she has
taken an active interest in this sport,
and admitted with a blush that she
plays "quite a good game."
Miss Atwater is a happy bride,

having taken the vows just last'
November. Her husband is Hugh
Marlowe, who originated the role of
Ellery Queen on the radio. He has
also played on Broadway in "Land
Is Bright" and "Flight To the West."
While both Mr. and Mrs. Marlowej
love New York and their apartment,
their main ambition in life is to
some day have their own place in
the country, regardless of how small.
"But then, just like everyone else,
we can't plan on anything until the
war is over," she added.
Active In Theatre Wing
Miss Atwater's interest in the pres-
ent crisis has not been passive. She
was ond of the originators of the
American Theatre Wing War Service
with Rachel Crothers and Gertrude
Lawrence. Its purpose at the outset
was to provide a place where profes-
sional people could come to knit and
gather supplies to send to England.
Since our entrance in the war it has
become interested in providing for
American soldiers.
One of its divisions is the Speak-
ers' Bureau from which many actors
and actresses are sent to speak on
Defense Bonds and Stamps, Nurses,
Aid and Red Cross. It is in this
division that Miss Atwater has been
most active. A gracious lady of the
stage, Edith Atwater returned to her
place on the set of "No Time for
Comedy" with the poise and sophis-
tication of a well-trained actress.

League Aids Study
With finals less than two weeks
away, dating has to give way to
studying. This year the League has
solved the problem of where to go
on week-ends for study dates by
opening the Kalamazoo room as a
study hall from 8 to 12 p.m. on Friday
and Saturday nights. Providing ta-
bles and lamps, the room should
prove popular for the next two
weeks when studying is all impor-

Another Sugar Card
SECAUCUS, N. J.-'P-A father
registered his family for sugar ra-
tion books and was back within an
hour demanding another book.
He had become a father again
while signing up. The board tele-
phoned the hospital to learn the new
arrival's weight, height, color of hair
and eyes, and gave the proud father
another book.
Netters To Pay In Blood
TOPEKA, Kas.-(I-Tennis play-
ers will pay in blood for the right
to participate in Topeka's annual Me-
morial Day tournament.

each player will be required to give
a pint of blood a week in advance,
tennis club officials explained to-
day. The blood will be donated to
the Red Cross as part of the na-
tional blood plasma project.

Women Can N
Service To Cour
*~ * *
With all able bodied men of the
country either marching or flying off
to war, the women have no inten-
tions of staying home to knit socks
and sweaters. Action is what they
have demanded and what they have
won in the form of the Women's
Army Auxiliary Corps, recently form-
ed by an act of Congress.
Many college women who will be
graduating or who will not be able to
return to school next term may feel
the urge to do their part in defending
our country. By joining the WAAC
a woman can become a soldier in one
sense of the word, subject to be as-
signed to foreign duty where she
would beh innon-combatant service.
Physical Tests Given
In order to be accepted into the
WAAC, a woman must meet rigid
physical and psychological tests. A
selective service board receives names
of volunteers and investigates the
health and possible ability of each.
Unless one makes the officers' train-
ing school, it may be two or three
months before she is called, for uni-
forms have still to be manufactured
and barracks must be established.
There are several branches of work
in the WAAC, the most popular of
which is the air-raid warning serv-
ice. In learning about radio detectors
and interceptor commands, women
may be preparing for a life long ca-
reer. Others in the WAAC may be
telephone operators, receptionists,
secretaries, cooks, teletypists and
The road to a commission in the
WAAC will be difficult after the pro-
gram gets under way, for officers will,

ntry In WAAC
ranks with social position and "pull"
not influencing the choice. In order
to be an officer, a woman must be a
good disciplinarian and must under-
stand girls.
Members of the WAAC are subject
to our Articles of War, so that cour~t
martial will be possible. This means
that women must finish out terms of
service in spite of the fact that they
find they are not suited to the work.
Medical services and hospitalization
will be furnished, and pension bene-
fits will be drawn under the U.S. Em-
ployees Compensation Act.
To Have Ranks
Although most girls will enter the
WAAC under the $21-a-month class-
ification, those with special training
can add five to fifteen dollars a
month for technical work.
"Non-coins" include first leader,
junior leader, and auxiliary, and
there are also commissioned lieuten-
ants of different grades. Director of
the WAAC will be a major, while the
next rank will be that corresponding
to a captain.
