M ichigan Women Will Be Busy
With War Work This Semester

For Winter


After two; weeks of organization.
the..Office of the Social Director of
the League has announced an official
report of approximately what they
can estimate Michigan. women will
be doing this semester in war work.
One of the most satisfactory re-
ports of all come from the nurse's
aide course. Thirty-one women have
registered to date, and this registra-
tion willcontinue until 5 p. m. today
in the social director's office at the
League: This class meets from 7 p. m.
to 9 p. m. Tuesday, Wednesday and"
Thursday and will be the first class
of students to be trained as nurse's
aides in the University.
To Be In Residences
For the first time, defense coursesj
will be taught in University residen-
ces. All house, presidents have sent in
reports on what types of work the
women in their houses want to do
and have already done.
Alumnae House, a particularly co-
operative dormitory, has a record of
six women who have received their
first aid. certificates and four more
who intend to do so. The following
houses and dormitories plan to hold
classes in their residences:
Adelia Cheever, Betsy Barbour and
Helen Newberry plan to hold first aid
classes; Jordan Hall will hold two
first aid classes and one home nurs-
ing class; Mosher Hall will have two
first aid and one home nursing class
and Stockwell Hall has requested
three first aid classes and one home
nursing class.
Sororities Turn Out
Sorority houses have turned out for
the defense courses in equal propor-
tions with other residences. The
following houses plan to hold first aid
courses: Alpha Chi Omega, Alpha
Delta Pi, Alpha Epsilon Phi, AlphaI
Gamma Delta, Alpha Phi, Alpha Zi
Delta, Chi Omega, .Collegiate Soro-
sis, Kappa Delta, Kappa Kappa
Gamma, Pi Beta Phi, Theta Phi Al-
pha and Zeta Tau Alpha. Other
houses are still making arrangements
but their final decisions have not yet
been announced.
Many League hoses have sent out
requests to organize first aid classes
in their houses or to combine with
someone else. The following ones in-
tend to take first aid: Freeman, Hunt,
Gaffill, Gorton, Betty O'Connor, Sim-
ons, H. M. Smith, Starring, Sullivan,
Tauzey, Zimmer, Wood and Jellema.
The nutrition course, which will be
held from 4 p. m. to 6 p. m. Wednes-

days, has been organized and 13'
have registered. The maximum for
the class is 26 so there is still room
for 13 more.
Need More Women
There is a maximum enrollment of
25 in the advanced first aid section
but to date only eight have registered.
There is urgent heed for 17 more
The motor mechanics class, which
is taught in Ann Arbor High School.
has received an enrollment of 96
students. Women in this course must
remember that all of the classes have
now started and anyone who is absent
will lose her place because still more
want to register.
A grand total of 45 students have
volunteered their services as office
assistants in the lines of typing,
shorthand, bookkeeping and general
office work.
The sophomore women are to be
congratulated upon the excellent
turnout that appeared for the sopho-
more mass meetings Miss Ethel Mc-
Cormick said. Nearly every sophomore
woman has signed up for the Hospital
Volunteer Service.
The freshman women appear to be
leaders -on the campus. A total of 97
women at Jordan Hall have already
received certificates in first aid, life
saving, home nursing etc. and they
are doing a fine piece of work organ-
izing and cooperating with other
freshman women in the Cassidy Lake
Camp project.
Musical Honorary
Has First Meeting
Sigma Alpha Iota, honorary music
society, held their first meeting last
night at the home of Mrs. George W.
Patterson. Lynette Spath, '43SM, as
the new president of the active chap-
ter, presided at the meeting and short
musical program.
This is the only professional musi-
cal sorority on campus. Requirements
for eligibility are enrollment in the
School of Music, a B plus average and
Interviewing for positions on the
central committee for Assembly
Banquet will be held from 3 to 5
p. m. today, Wednesday, Thursday,
and Friday. The place will be
posted on the bulletin board in the

F rosh Project'
Dedicates Aid
To War Effort
Three hundred women in the class
of '46 attended a mass meeting yes-
terday in the League and pledged
themselves to a three-fold campaign
aimed at helping to win the war.
These freshmen women are going
to devote two or more hours a week
rolling bandages, aiding in the salvage
campaign, knitting, selling war
stamps, or attending current events
Three hundred freshmen pledged
to buy faithfully a dollar's worth of
stamps monthly.
As the focal point of the war pro-
ject, 300 freshman women offered to
devote one date night out of the year
to act as hostesses at a party given
for the entertainment of service men
at Cassidy Lake Camp.
It has been estimated that if each
freshman woman devote but two
hours a week at some sort of war
work, it will mean a total of 1400
hours per week, and 44,800 hours a
school year totaled for the war effort.
Miss Colton, director of Jordan and
adviser to the project, has organized
a large portion of the class of '46 and
has catalogued their interests, spare
hours, and free evenings. She has
urged them to maintain a high aca-
demic average so that they may be
more useful after they have obtained
a degree.
A supplementary meeting for all
those who did not attend theomass
meeting yesterday will be announced
very shortly.
Smart Gloves Add
Wardrobe Interest
Gloves make up an interesting, of-
ten ignored part of every woman's
wardrobe. Hand-sewn, double-woven
cotton suede gloves are inexpensive as
well as smart, and can be worn for
almost any occasion.
For teas and more dressy functions,
stitched capeskin short pull-ons are
very acceptable. A whipstitched glove
of soft, white doeskin will go to the
most formal activities, always classi-
fying you among well dressed women.
Jewelry, especially bracelets and
earrings, if chosen with an eye to
good taste, can help to set off any
costume. A leather - and - gilt link
bracelet with a shining name plate
will tag you once and for all. Along
in the higher figures you will find a
gold-filled bracelet-and-heart dangle
watch which will bring more than a
few compliments. Combined with
these you might wear either gilt-posy
earrings which will be in perpetual
bloom or those made in small gold
Barbour Residents
Hold Fall Initiation
Betsy Barbour dormitory held its
annual informal initiation of new
residents recently. The party began
after closing hours and all of the new
residents were required to put on
some form of entertainment.
A radio skit advertising "Flamingo
Fluffy Flakes," a "mellerdrama", a
quintet singing their own versions of
popular songs, and several piano solos
were only a few of the entertaining
performances. Group singing and
popcorn and apple refreshments
brought the evening to an end.

Bane Of Frdsh

In Lordly 'Sophomore Attitude'

They've gone through the trials of
Orientation, suffered the tribulations
of classifying during the pandemon-
ium of registration, and they've even3
humbled themselves before the3

tence on this campus is the average
The Sophomores of today are the
Freshmen of yesterday, and they try
in every way to convince the newcom-
ers that they would put the color of
the campus lawns to shame. So happy1
to be out of that chartreuse class
themselves, they suddenly appear as
the smooth, "I've - been - around"
bunch and hope this year's crop of
new faces will sit up and take notice.
You can usually pick out a Sopho-
more. If it's feminine, you'll find her
at one of the local coke parlors,
shouting across the table to her com-
panion, "Rushing is SO tedious now.

fore attending the University she

While no official title has been
chosen for the contingent, the desig-
nation "women's auxiliary reserve of

ously derived WARCOGS. The wo-

ing men for sea service. Present plans

end of next year.

I DO hope the Freshman Class will
have something to offer in February."
Or else, "What! Don't tell me you
haven't heard of Sawyer's arrange-
ment of Rock of Ages!" All for the
benefit of the amused newcomers
across the aisle.
On the other hand, the male Sophs
are not immune to this "second year
fever". Nothing delights the "boys"
more than to hiss a soul-crushing,
"Freshman!" to the conscientious gal
who labors along the diagonal with
an armload of books en route to a
one o'clock.
But the Class of '46 is learning fast
that they don't have to come puffing
to class at five minutes to the hour.
The mistakes of charging into a room
in Haven Hall instead of into one
with the corresponding number in
South Wing are fewer and farther
between. And they aren't carrying
every textbook they own to class any-
In other words they're beginning to
know the place and feel at home,
making the most of the presentyear,
but just BIDING THEIR TIME until
they too can hear that sweet music,
"There goes an upperclassman", from
the lips of next year's neophytes.

Magnificent New Furs

It takes -no more than a taste of
winter weather before fur coats are
brought frantically from storage and
linings are zipped into classic "season
skippers." These cool fall days are a
final warning to those of you who
have not yet found just the "right"
coat for winter wear.
The coat shown above is perfect
for all-around campus wear. Unusual
in the fact that it is reversible, it can
be worn casually to classes or turned
fur-side-out for dressy occasions. Its
extra warmth is indispensable for
those cold, wind-blown mornings
when you trudge across the diagonal
to that 8 o'clock.



"Stroller Sets" are getting "All
American" rating this season.
The matching Hat, Coat, and
Muff add a sophisticated note
to . any woman's winter outfit.
See them in Natural and Black
Oppossum, Black Kidskin, Mink-
dyed Coney, and Beaverette.








Don't be a lazy bones sleepin' in the sun! Why not
spring into action NOW and have your Ensian
picture taken?

attention of concert-goers is respect-
fully called to the following:
Holders of season tickets are re-
quested to detach, before leaving
home, respective coupons and to pre-
sent for admission only the coupon
for each concert, instead of the en-
tire season ticket.
The public is requested to come
sufficiently early as to be seated on
time, since the doors will be closed
during numbers. Parking regulations
will be in effect under the direction
of the Ann Arbor Police Department.
