To Be Chosen
For Positions
Sororities Represented To Have
Two Added To Membership
Quota; Qualifications Listed
Petitioning for positions as Jordan
Assistants for the coming year will
begin today to continue until noon
Saturday, Feb. 14, Jane Baits, '42,
chairman of the Judiciary Commit-
tee, announced.
These positions are open to sopho-
more, junior and senior women, and
both independents and sorority mem-
bers are eligible. Any sorority which
is represented in the list of Jordan
assistants will be permitted to have
two women above the total quota set
for the year by the Office of the Dean
of Women.
Leadership Ability Essential
Qualifications for assistantships
include ability to mix well and coop-
erate with others, willingness to ac-
cept responsibility, leadership, and
scholarship. Jordan assistants are
asked to take no part in rushing ac-
tivities, but may wkeep in touch with
their respective houses afterwards,
provided that there is no conflict with
their duties in Jordan.
Outside positions, either extra-cur-
ricular or for remuneration, are per-
mitted, although waiting table is not
encouraged. Petitions are available
in the Undergraduate Office of the
League and no late applications will
be accepted.
To Live In Hall
Jordan assistants live in the dormi-
tory during the school year, each wo-
man having from six to ten fresh-
man women for whom she is respon-
sible. Her duties consist largely in
advising, suggesting, counselling, and
generally helping with academic, so-
cial, scholastic and personal conduct
problems.
She has individual and group con-
ferences with the directors of the hall
every other week, on specific prob-
lems and on problems of a general
-nature, concerning freshmen. As
nearly as possible, the freshman as-
sistant is an example of the well-
adjusted, completely normal person-
ality.
"Serving as a Jordan adviser is ex-
cellent experience for anyone plan-
ning a teaching career, or personnel
work," said Miss Baits. Assistants will
also receive a small salary while serv-
.To Have Training
Interviewing for assistants will be-
gin at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 17, and
will continue all week in the Under-
graduate Office. Twenty-three wo-
men will be chosen, with ten alter-'
nates, who will be trained in case of
vacancies.
A training course will begin late in
March, which will meet two hours a
week for six weeks, dealing with gen-
eral freshman problems, specific Jor-
dan problems, case studies, tech-
niques, methods, and points of view.
There will be speakers from both the
University faculty and from other in-
stitutions.

Student Blood
Donors Sought
By Red Cross

University students will have a
chance to contribute to the Red Cross
blood bank from noon to 4:30 p.m.
Tuesday, Feb. 17 at the Women's
Athletic Building.
Two hundred persons are needed
to give a pint of blood each to the
plasma banks which will go to the
aid of American men at the front.
Both men and women may contrib-
ute; those from 18 to 21 need both
health service permits and written
notes of permission from their par-
ents before they may sign up at the
social director's office of the League,
however.
The amount of blood taken is about
one-tenth of the total in the average-
sized person's body, but authorities
of the medical school say that the
circulatory system contains more
blood normally than is required. Af-
ter a brief rest, the donor may re-
sume his business of the day. Only a
few moments is required for the do-
nating process. Since the whole blood
will not be placed in the blood banks,
and since only the plasma, the
"cream" which rises to the surface,
is typed, the routine of blood-typing
may be dispensed with.
Ten volunteers will be taken at
noon Feb. 17, and 15 persons at every
half hour period thereafter. Both
men and women may register for
donations at the same hour. All are
urged to get their health service per-
mits and parents' permissions as soon
as possible so that they may sign up
at the League for donations very
soon.
Engagement Announcedt
Mr. and Mrs. Herbert B. Willmott1
of Detroit announce the engagementt
of their daughter, Claire, to Mr. Har-1
old Ross Dunn, son of Mr. and Mrs.1
Rollo C. Dunn of Lexington, Ky. The1
wedding will take place in June. i

Dance Tryouts
Will Be Today
Seventy-Five Places Are Open;
Production To Be Pantomime
Tryouts for the Theatre Arts pro-
duction of "The Sleeping Beauty"
will be today from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.
and from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the
League, Mary Ellen Wheiler, director
of the plays, announced.
This production is to be a panto-
mime with the fourteen dance num-
bers illustrating various phases of
the story. Dancers of all kinds are
needed and there is a special place
for those who can tango and for a
Russian dancer. Every girl who is in-
terested in dancing is urged to try
out as 'areat deal of experience is
not necessary. The try out are pri-
marily for the purpose of placing the
girls with regard to height and
amount of experience, and there will
be places for seventy-five girls in the
dance numbers. Those who have tap
or ballet slippers are urged to bring
them.
Dick Strain, '42, will direct the
dances and the dance committee will
be headed by Barbara Alcorn, '43,
and she will be assisted by Rita Hy-
men, '44. Strain was in the '39, '40,
and '41 Mimes productions, has
danced professionally in various ho-
tels, and spent the last two summers
at Martha's Vineyard.
The music will be under the direc-
tion of Stanley Locke, '42, who played
for the Children's Theater last year
and who has studied under Artur
Schnable.
Student To Give Recital
Featuring the works of Mozart,
Handel and Repighi, Thomas Wheat-
ley, violinist and senior in the School
of Music, will give a recital at 8:30
p.m. tomorrow in the Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre. Wheatley, whose
home is in St. Albans, W. Va., has
been studying under Wassily Bese-
kirsky since entering the University

eign Policy Association Research De-
partment, lecturer and writer, who

several months in South America.

fund to aid stranded war victims. A
slight admission charge will be made
to non-members.
The state Alumnae Council will
meet in Ann Arbor the day of the
lecture. Prof. Harlow Heneman of
the University Committee on War
Defense will address the council
members at a luncheon at the League
which all alumnae may attend. Res-
ervations for the luncheon should be
made with Mrs. Hugh B. Keeler,
president of the Michigan Alumnae
Club of Ann Arbor.
Mrs. Dean will be entertained at

Martha Cook Building, is chairman
of the special membership drive.
