Dating Bureau
To Open Again
Under Demand
Remaining Males On Campus
Besiege Acquaintance Service
With Requests For Dream Girls
Swamped under the pressure of 900
freshmen demanding dates during
Orientation Week, the Acquaintance
Bureau, headed by Nancy Griffin,
'44, and Bob Wendling, '45, has sprung
up again, bigger and better than ever
to accommodate lonely students
whose friends are in the Army, Navy,
WAAC or what have you.
Operating from 3 p. m. to 4 p. m.
Mondays in the League and Thurs-
days in the Union, a committee of
twenty women in cooperation ,with a
corresponding committee of men from
the Union, will try their level best to,
match applicants according to height,
r;eligious preference, personality and
individual specifications.
No Risk Involved
No risk is involved in these dates,
since, according to Miss Griffin, "coke
dates are arranged before any other
type of date, so that no one will have
to spend an evening with someone
he or she does not care for."
The bureau sends dates to its clien-
tele until instructed by the recipients
to stop. The women have been getting
an extra supply because the men wh
have signed up are in the majority,
inspite of the drop in male attendance
at the University.
Bureau Wants Reports
Because many of its matches de-
velop into the "pin status" and even
engagements, the bureau is naturally
interested in the results 'of its work.
-"We'd like to hear about the success
of our ,dates.' That's just what we
love," Miss Griffin says, "but reports'
of failures will be appreciated too."
This year's demands for dates has
exceeded any since the Acquaintance
Bureau was established three years
ago. Most of the demands so far have
come from men, though according to
statistics the ratio of men to women,
heretofore in favor of the men, as far
as numbers go, is now reversed.
Tutorial Plan
Under 'Way
Registration Of Women Tutors
To Begin At League Tomorrow
Registration of tutors for the
League tutorial system will take place
from 3 p. m. to 5:30 p. m. tomorrow
and Tuesday in the Undergraduate
Office of the League.
Any woman who has, had a B in
the course she wishes to teach is eli-.
gible, tutors being especially needed
for mathematics, chemistry and lang-
uages. All instructors will receive pay
for their services.
Though the system under the direc-
tion of Barbara Alcorn, '43, was not
yet in action for the benefit of fresh-
men before five-week grades came
out, all those who need assistance may
fill out cards which will be found in
Miss Alcorn's box in the Undergradu-
ate Office. These cards should be re-
turned to the same place after the
proper data has been written in.
According to Miss Alcorn, upper-
classmen may be tutored at the be-
ginning of the semester, even though
the system is primarily for the bene-
fit of the freshmen. University offi-
cials decreed that freshmen should
not receive assistance until five-week
grades came out, in order to be sure
that they try to get along on their
own before looking for help.

The pledging of Mortimer Levin,
'45M; Martin Green, '45M; Leonard"
Fox, '45M; Aaron Stern, '45M; Ber-
nard Krohn, '45M; and Robert Gre-
kin, '45M; has been announced by
Phi Delta Epsilon.

Defense Bonds

door prizes, two $25 War Bonds will

"Formal" which will be held from

room of the Union, accordingr to
"Long Bob" Steidemann, '43, genial
master of ceremonies 'for the dave.
Drawing for the bonds will be held
during intermission, at which time it
is rumored that other prizes-less
'patriotic, perhaps, but of more im-
mediate value in these rationed times,
will also be awarded.
Not only have the foresters prom-
ised "interesting" prizes for their
guests Friday, but also informality
and fun in the traditional Paul Bun-
yan "no-ties, coats-or-other-strictly-
superfluous-attire" manner. Said Bill
Sawyer, "It's the best dance of the
year, and you can quote me. It's the
relaxed atmosphere that makes it

then," -he, remarked.

Letters to the Editor...

Hillel To SponsorRed Cross Unit

To the Woman's Editor of the Daily:
The news story which appeared in
yesterday's Daily concerning the
WAA project for voluntary physical
education program struck me as be-
ing one of the most progressive steps,
ever taken by the women students on
this campus.
At a time when the wail was that
the Michigan, women were at best
rather stupid, at worst criminally
complacent, I insisted that things
would break soon. They've been
breaking ever since. The class pro-
jects and hospital work were the
first signs of action. Now the most
tremendous effort to date has been

nade. The plan to adopt a pro-
gram of voluntary physical educa-
tion for women that was announced
in yesterday's Daily is terrific. It
is a' program which must be en-
forced to the last student. And it
is merely a question of who's to en-
force it.I
This plan has come from the coeds.
It is a purely voluntary measure, and,
as such has to be a success #or the
authority will be handed over to the
If this program fMils the result-
should be a compulsory PEW two
or three times a week down at the
WAB. And the thought of hiking
down to gym in the middle of the

afternoon to exercise is a horrible
one. But that's what we'll all be
doing if we don't cooperate now. All
that is asked for are a few minutes
away from bull sessions and the tele-
I am not the athletic type. My
most strenuous activities usually
are looking for food and walking
from the Ec building to the library
steps. And I'm not dying to be
energetic. But this is not a question
of personal preference. The women
of Michigan are in poor health
and our job is to build up that
health in every possible way. The
chance is here. There is no reason

Hillel Foundation announces Its es.
tablishment of a Red tfoss surgical
bandage unit, the. first. meeting of
which will be held fromn 2 p. n. to 5
why we shouldn't cooperate to the
fullest extent.
Ii refuse to believe that this student
plan won't succeed. My defense was
justified before.. I'm just as certain
now that I won't be disappointed.
I'm not writing this letter to plead
with the girls on campus. They real-
ize their duty. I merely want to
compliment the WAA for a swell -job
and remind the students that if this
measure fails, we will all' be taking
compulsory gymnastics, and not at
our own convenience.
Bernice Galansky, '44.

P. in. at 'the ;'oufrd toft©hiRaven
According- to " Charlotte Xa4mAn,
'45, and IHerbert Ievin,'44, all stu
dents and townspeople are invited to
attend the group, which will be super-
vised- by qualified Red Cross instruc-
tors in surgical bandage making. Reg-
ular 'attendance, of'" participants is
stressed 'ince the unit must fill a set
quota of work .each 'Tuesday.
Those coming to work-should- report
wearirg freshly laundered cotton
blouses or' dresses or wear clean cot-
ton smocks,., all of which must be in
light colors. A headdress of clean ma-
terial which conceals all of the hair
is required. 'It is requested by the
sponsors that no nail polish be worn
during the landage making.
