Army Master Menus Planned
To Fill Soldier's Daily Budget
By MARILYN MAYER
If you think the dorms are super
efficient in. meal planning, hear
about the Army whose master menus
are planned two months in advance!
This advanced planning facilitates
the bulk buying necessary to keep
within the 42 cents a day per soldier
budget. This 42 cents must provide
all a soldier can eat and after from
8 to 12 hours of strenuous exercise.
Don't ever kid yourself that those
boys aren't hungry!
Do you know what you'll have for
dinner Monday, April 2-0? Ten to
one you don't but the Army does. In
fact on Monday, April 20, the Army
is scheduled to sit down to bean
soup, Swiss steak with gravy, boiled
potatoes and savory onions; sliced
orange salad with mayonnaise, bread
and butter, cottage pudding with
chocolate sauce, hot tea.f
This master menu plan just re-
cently adopted is designed to relieve
any difficulties encountered b the
draftee in accustoming himself to
southern corn bread and cowpeas or
New England baked beans and boiled
dinners when maneuvers carry him
away from his native haunts.
If during vacations you are used
to dashing over to the corner grocery
for a pound of butter and a quart of
milk for dinner, imagine toting back
25 pounds of onions for an army
recipe! The ingredients for the sav-
ory onion dish mentioned above also
consists of 21/2 ounces of salt, 2% /
quarts of chili sauce, 1 pound brown
sugar, 11/ teaspoons pepper and 12
ounces melted butter. No, not a whole
camp, just 100 men!
Complaints are to be addressed to
Miss Mary I. Barber, expert food con-
Will End Saturday
Petitioning for the 1942-43 League
and Judiciary Council positions will
end at noon Saturday, and interview-
ing will begin Tuesday to last
through Saturday, March 7, in the
Positions open to present juniors
include those of League Council pres-
ident, secretary, treasurer, vice-pres-
ident or orientation programs, and
vice-president of the tutorial system.
Committee chairmanships also open
are those of the social committee,
Theatre-Arts committee, dance classl
committee, candy booth, merit sys-
tem, and the house committee. I
sultant to the Secretary of War, for
all menus must have Miss Barber's
ok before they may be placed before
the soldiers. Favorite army menu is,
Swiss steak, canned peas, sliced to-
matoes, apple pie and coffee and why
not? Iced tea in summer runs a
close second to coffee and the boys
eat more bread and meat than any
Most of the complaints come from
the mothers of the draftees who are
concerned about their son's welfare.
Although the soldiers are allowed re-
serves as many times as they wish
they complain that there isn't enough
food. At any rate the average draf-
tee is scheduled to gain 10 pounds
during his first six weeks in camp so
they can't be too terribly underfed.
"Pay-Off," traditional Mortarboard
dance to be held tomorrow evening
from 9 p.m. to midnight in the
League Ballroom, will feature the
favorite maestros of the time,.
that is in caricatures decorating the
walls of the ballroom.
Dance music is to be supplied by a
specially arranged radio system. Peg
Sanford, '42, chairman of the annual
affair, announces that the dance will
be very informal.
The patrons' list includes Prof. and
Mrs. Charles M. Davis, Prof. and'
Mrs. Samuel Graham, Prof. and Mrs.
Harlan Bloomer, Miss Hope Hart-
wig, Miss Jeanette Perry and Mrs.
Mrs. Stanley Adamcheck, of Dear-
born, announces the marriage of her
daughter, Winifred, to Lieut. Ethon
L. Stone, son of Mrs. Frances Stone
of New York. The ceremony took
place Dec. 25 in St. Paul's Cathedral
Rectory, Pittsburgh, Pa., the Rev.
T. S. Ganahan officiating.
Mrs. Stone attended Siena Heights
College and the University. Lieut.
Stone received his degree from the
Medical School and attended the
'United States Medical Officers'
School at Carlisle, Pa. He is now
'stationed at Camp Polk, La.
To Be Forgotten
Burr Frank To Be Chairman;
Decoration Theme To Be Built
Around Traditional Slide Rulej
Traditional rivalry between the en-1
gineers' Slide Rule Ball and the law-
yers' Crease Ball seemed doomed yes-#
terday when it was announced that
the engineering dance would be held
Friday, March 27, more than a month
in advance of the lawyers' ball.
Formerly held on the same night,I
the dances this year will be held with-I
out the customary "feud", as law stu-!
dents will be preparing for Michigan
Bar Exams at that time, and have
tentatively announced that their
dance will be held early in May.
No Band Yet
No band has yet been obtained for
the Slide Rule Ball, but in the past
few years the dance has brought
here such names as Vincent Lopez,
Woody Herman and Cab Calloway,
and the committee this year promises
to maintain the record.
Chairman of the Ball, annually
sponsored by The Michigan Technic,
engineering college publication, will
be Burr J. French, '42E, editor-in-
chief of the Technic and a member
of the Engineering Council.
Other committeemen working un-
der him will be John S. Burnham,
'42E, music; Robert L. Imboden, '42E,
finance; Robert S. Sibley, '42E, tick-
ets; Robert L. Summerhays, '42E,
floor; Ted Kennedy, '42E, patrons;
Bud Keetch, '42E, and William W.
Hutcherson, '43E, decorations; C.
Freeman Alexander, '43E, publicity,
and F. Carter Taylor, '43E, programs.
The second of twoaengineering
dances given each year, the Slide
Rule Ball was preceded by the an-
nual Engineering Ball which was pre-
sented by the Engineering Council
Presence Of Slide Rule
Traditionally present at the Slide
Rule Ball is the huge replica of a
slide rule which has, in past years,
caused so much "friction" between
engineers and lawyers when the irate
barristers have triedto steal the em-
blew before the dance.
With the absence of this rivalry this
year, there seems no question but
what the over-sized slide rule will
hang in its usual place at one end
of the Union Ballroom when the
dance gets under way.
Plans for decorations for the dance
are proceeding satisfactorily, Keetch
has reported, though no definite plans
have been announced as yet. Last
year's decorations consisted of four
murals depicting the four different
years of the student on campus.
Pastels In Contrast
Something new in classic spectator
sport dresses is this pastel, thin wool
trimmed with navy or wine. The tra-
ditional shirt-waist is camouflaged
by a graceful apron which can be re-
moved when "strictly sport" is the
demand. The peasant touch can be
noted in the broad band of trimming
on the apron which helps to "dress
up" this new spring frock.
W ickets To QIio
To Service Men
Branch Of Defense Committee
Offers Regular Correspondence
To University Men In Service
Michigan men in service with Un-
cle Sam's armed forces will be get-
ting plenty of mail. Such is the plan
of the League's new defense com-
mittee under the chairmanship of
Margaret Ihling, '43, which has
tackled its latest project by setting
up a correspondence division.
This branch of the defense com-
mittbe will keep track of University
of Michigan men in service and will
inform them of campus activities.
The idea is strictly no "relief for
the lovelorn" inspiration, declares
Mary Brownrigg, '44, chairman of
To Send Clippings
Her appointed committee will con-
sist of approximately 25 members
who will correspond regularly-that
is, once a week or twice a month,
with the Army or Navy men who
were attending the University up to
the time of their response to the
United States' defense roll call.
The women will send them, not
trifling hits of romance. but clip-
pings and cartoons from The Daily
and Gargoyle and whatever other
information about campus life that
may be of interest to them.
Letters Are Under Way
The first letters are already under
way, though the list of former Mich-
igan men is far from complete, and
these are filled with inquiries about
their interests as well as recent cam-
Later, it is hoped, the chairman
stated, that friends of the men who
are here on campus will be contacted
and informed of their whereabouts,
so that they, too, can reach them by
letter as they are transferred from
post to post and shipyard to ship-
Fraternities, dormitories and di-
rectors of men's rooming houses have
been asked to cooperate with the
committee on this defense project-

Jordan Hall To Give
Tea For Residents
I Saturday, March 7
What with second semester activi-
ties beginning in full swing Jordan
Hall residents have deemed it fit-
ting to entertain their colleagues at
a tea Saturday, March 7, from 3 to
5 p.m. designed to further acquaint
Joy Bronson, '45, chairman of the
tea, and her assistants, Oriel Straeh-
ley, '45, Norma Kelly, '45, Betsey
Hartsuch, '45, Ann Terbruggen, '45,
and Natalie Porter, '45, have issued
specially engraved invitations to all
freshman women. The receiving line
is to include Marjorie Hall, president
of the dormitory, Miss Bronson, and
the central committee of Frosh Proj-
ect, which will be announced later.
During the afternoon the Jordan
Glee Club will serenade the guests
first with "Gianiamia" and "When
Day Is Done" and later with Kreis-
ler's "Cradle Song" and "Make Be-
Women Need Physical Fitness
For Place In National Defense
(Editor's Note: This is the third in
a series of articles dealing with the
efforts of the Physical Education De-
partment in the all-out war effort.)
By MYRON DANN
"There is little the Women's Physi-
cal Education Department can do
for the university woman, unless
they themselves wake up to their own
needs and prepare themselves ac-
cordingly," Dr. Margaret Bell, head
of the Sixth Corps Area's Physical
Fitness Division, said yesterday.
"An extra gym course, or coming
in an hour earlier," Dr. Bell added,
"will do the coed little good in pre-
paring her physical self for the tasks
that lay ahead. She must make a
concerted effort in everything she
does to protect and build up her en-
durance and strength."
Health Is Social Problem
Dr. Bell, who is also head of the
Women's Physical Education Depart-
ment, pointed out that women are in-
clined to regard health as a purely
personal problem and to overlook any
social implications; yet close to fif-
teen million women will be working
in the war industry during the com-
ing year. Faced with such data they
can not afford to do other than meet
the problem as it exists.

Day For Interviews
Interviewing of women interested
in positions on the 1942 Freshman
Project is being conducted now in
the League and will continue from
3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. today and to-
Women may enlarge upon the ideas
presented in their petitions and may
present additional ideas, if they wish,
at their interviews. Eligibility cards
must be shown also at this time.
All girls participating in League,
Panhellenic, and Assembly activi-
ties, or taking defense courses,
must have their eligibility card
signed in the Social Director's Of-
fice of the League before 5 p.m.
University is designed to develop in
each student the above concept, Dr.
Bell pointed out.
In the fall before a student may
matriculate she is given a very thor-
ough medical examination and the
results of such an examination are
used as a basis for her health pro-
gram during college.
Special Courses Added
What few special courses that can
be offered to prepare the University
woman for specialized war efforts
have already been added to the cur-
Dr. Bell concluded by saying, that
four years compulsory physical edu-
cation in itself would not solve the
physical fitness program. Any wo-
men students, however, who feel that
they need some guidance or actual
training are urged to report to the
