Colton said.
Freshmen Will Have Time
The Cassidy Lake men, all between

Respond 400 Strong, Will Pledge
Coke Dates To Sophomore Service
OVER 400 sophomore women crowded the League Ballroom yesterday
The occasion was the first mass meeting of Sophomore Service
Workers-the girls who are going to relieve the shortage of help
at the University Hospital by putting in spare hours carrying trays,
and washing dishes.
Despite the rain, they came. Just about every sophomore woman
was accounted for-those that couldn't make the meeting had signed
up beforehand.
This is the first great united action that the campus has seen from
the women since everyone began realizing the importance of disbanding
WE FEEL that the sophomore women should be commended whole-
heartedly for their cooperation, eagerness and enthusiasm in ful-
filling the obligation that rested upon them.
The organization is smoothly synchronized and already moving
full speed ahead., Even the heads of the CDVO, Red Cross and
League were surprised at the 100 per cent response and even more
so at the excellent, serious and faultless organization of the project.
The greatest portion of the girls will be putting in their well-cher-
ished "coke hours" at the University hospital where they will clean
instruments, answer lights and wait on the patients.
Others will do clerical work in offices suffering from lack of pro-
fessional help. Others will act as hostesses for campus parties for men
in the service. Others will do art and publicity work for the CDVO.
But the important thing is that every sophomore woman has
pledged her free time for the duration and has pledged it gladly.
F THE WOMEN of the freshman, junior and senior classes do as well,
then the whole country will be justly proud of the University of
Michigan.-Barbara de Fries
