the ballroom. The %entire proceeds
of the dance will go to the Bomber-

feature "Doe's" Dixieland "band
within a band," a specialty composed
of several pieces, with Bill Henlin at
the trombone, Tom Snyder behind
the clarinet, Charlie Goodell and his
trumpet, and Don Whitefield beat-
ing it out at the drums, Clark Mc-
Clellan at the piano. Bill Wheatley
at the bass .and Dwight Daily with
his tenor saxophone.
Several numbers will be played by'
the "rhythm band" which features
the clarinet, drums, bass and vibra-
phone. The vocal quartette with
"Doc" himself, Bill Henlin, Charlie
Goodell, and Tom McNall will be
included in the evening's entertain-

the purpose-of eliminating the circu-

the dressings. In addition, the hair

they could do to yank him out before
he went over his head.
A few of the students were so eager
to get back to their waiting school
work that they hitch-hiked home this
afternoon after farmers told them
that further work would be impos-
sible. The students' only regrets
about the trip were that bad weather
had cut down production. "We could
have done so much more if the wea-
ther hadn't been so adverse," they
said. "But the farmers are mighty
glad that the Manpower Corps ar-
ranged wifh the University to send
the boys up. They're still shaking
their heads over the weather condi-
tions that hampered students, but
"it's something we've grown used to
up here."

der organizations has been acceler-
ated by the war," said Miss Colburn
in the announcement. "A year of
specialized training now will enable
young women to attain more quickly

display and service management,
which were formerly considered men's
jobs, are now open to women."

class who wish to participate in the
contest must mail registration blanks
and the First Paper to the school no
