Mrs. Roosevelt Calls On Women
To Duplicate Work In England

WASHINGTON, Nov. 18. -(IP)-
Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt, in the
first recounting of her flying trip to
Britain at a lengthy press confer-
ence today, told of her impressions
Of Britain's Royal Family, wartime
life in England, her trips to Ameri-
can military camps, and possible sug-
gestions for Uncle Sam at war.
Mrs. Roosevelt, who left for Lon-
don Oct. 21 and whose return was.
announced by the White House yes-
terday, said that from her observa-
tion the average Briton is not get-
ting as much food as before the war
but it is better balanced. "Dull but
adequate," she described it.
Mrs. Roosevelt said her trip had
convinced her that if American citi-
zens could only realize that the.
length of the war will depend largely
on what they are willing 'to do "We
might put a great deal more into
our war effort."
Asked for examples of what Amer-
icans could do, she said giving upJ
non-essentials for one thing. Also if
women were willing to do a great
deal more work, there could be re-
leased more manpower for war indus-
try and the armed services. She said
she doubted if anyone in England
now, no matter how rich, had ser-
Vrs. Roosevelt said the British peo-
ple were enormously grateful for the
help given them by Americans-the
warm clothing sent over, the ambu-
lances, the canteens. In return the
Bitish were doing what they could
to make American boys feel at home.
Many mutual friendships were de-
Their dislike for K.P. duty didn't
stop the American soldiers from mop-
ping up in Africa.


Bomber Scholarship
Committee Sponsors
Dance For Victory
Dance fbr victory! That's what
the Bomber-Scholarship Committee
wants you to do from 9 to midnight
tomorrow and Saturday nights. The
committee is sponsoring dances in the
League Ballroom these two nights to
raise money for their fund.
All money coming from the sale
of tickets to these dances will go di-
rectly to the Bomber-Scholarship, a
fund being raised here on campus toj
provide post-war scholarships forI
Michigan men in the army whose ed-
\ication was interrupted by the war
and who wish to return to school.

Annual Dance
To Take Place
Tickets To Go On Sale Today;
Proceeds Of Affair Will Go '
To Bomber Scholarship Fund
Fraternity men and their dates will
dance to the "sweet and hot" music
of Fletcher Henderson and his or-
chestra when he plays for the 10th
annual Interfraternity Ball to be held
Friday, Dec. 4, in. the Union Ball-
Henderson was recently with Ben-
ny Goodman's band where he did all
arrangements before he reorganized
his own orchestra. Coming to Ann
Arbor from an engagement in Chi-
cago, he will bring his rhythms be-
fore the Michigan dancing public
for the first time. In spite of the
fact that Henderson is known for his
"hot" music, plenty of danceable
numbers will fill the program.
Tickets Go On Sale
Tickets will go on sale today in fra-
ternity houses, where representatives
will have allotments proportioned to
the size of the chapter. However, to
keep the Ball exclusive for the
"Greeks," fraternity men are urged
to buy their tickets before the gen-
eral sale, which will begin Nov. 30.
As a new feature of their annual
formal the IFC is inaugurating an
Interfraternity Pledge Sing, the fi-
nals of which wil be held during the
intermission of the Ball. Pledge
classes are rehearsing 'now for elim-
inations which will begin in the near
Decorations Minimized
Even in their social life Michigan
students will see the effects of war,
for in spite of the fact that proceeds
of the dance will be given to the
Bomber-Scholarship, the committee
has announced that decorations will
be less extravagant than usual. How-
ever, Greek letters as well as crests
'of all campus fraternities will form
a fitting background for the festivi-
ties. A special "Sweetheart Dance"
will be played honoring those cou-
pIes that are pinned.
League Tutors
Advance Fees
For Services
It was decided this week that the
fee for tutorial services at the League
be raised from twenty-five cents to
fifty aents per hour.
Any woman wishing to register as
a tutor may still see Barbara Alcorn,
'43, director of the tutorial system, or
sign up in the Undergraduate Office
of the League. There are cards in
Miss Alcorn's box in the Undergradu-
ate Office which should be filled out
and returned to the same place after
the proper information has been
filled in.
Tutors are especially needed for
mathematics, chemistry and lang-
uages, Miss Acorn said that more
tutors are necessary to fill the demand
made by house-mothers and others
who have made an effort to contact
the committee for the benefit of wo-
men desiring to be tutored. The only
requirement for eligibility is for a
woman to have a "B" in the course
she wishes to teach.
Upperclassmen may be tutored at
the beginning of the semester, even
though the system is primarily for
freshmen. By University decree,
freshmen should not receive assis-
tance until five-week grades come
out, in order to make sure that they

really need the aidoffered by the
W yvern To Hold
Project Discussion
Today At League
All college women who have ind-
cated experience in nursery school
and recreational training on the re-
cent volunteer work'survey cards are
requested to come to a discussion be-
tween 3:30 and 5.:30 p.m.. today and
tomorrow in the Undergraduate Of-
fice at the League.
Three inember, of Wyvern, which
is sponsoring the CDVO project, will
be on haru, according to Helen May
Kresbach, '43, president, to talk with
the applicants.
The conferences are being called in
answer to the need for women trained
in this field, to help care for children
whose parents are working in defense
These women will go to the various
schools in Ann Arbor, and under =the
direction of an adult adviser, will
assist in providing gainful recreation
to the many defense-orphaned young-

P.1 Pe.n

Just interviewed Lt. Mary Newell, a graduate of the University, and now
a member of the WAACs at Des Moines, Iowa. It sure was wonderful to see
such a charming woman, smart and efficient in her uniform, and really
out doing her part toward winning this war.
It won't be long before most of us now in college will be ready to offer
our services in various ways also. WAA believes sincerely that each and
every woman should be in a healthy mental and physical condition not
only now while she is in college training, but also later when she actually
meets up with her duties:
Thus we have proposed and planned the voluntary calisthenics pro-
gram among University women. WAA isn't out on any extensive muscular
development program, by any means. Our purpose in, this program is that
of a general toning up of the physical condition of the women on campus,
and along with it an improvement in coordination.
Athletic managers are requested to attend the first leadership meeting
at 4 p.m. tomorrow at Barbour Gym, but anyone else interested (such as
those training for recreational leadership or camp counsel) is invited to
take the course. Helen Clarke, a member of the WAA Board, will teach
the exercises to those attending, in a series of six meetings.
Now that the program has been formulated there will be no delay in
bringing it directly to the women on campus. Those training to be leaders
will be taught certain exercises tomorrow and will go back to their respective
houses to lead their groups in the first calisthenics on Monday. Beginning
with a five-minute period of exercise, this will continue progressively until
a maximum of 20 minutes is reached.
Remember that this program is purely voluntary, but the WAA Board.
which is a fairly wide representation of campus women, feels that the
coeds will be behind their efforts. Certainly a maximum of 20 minutes a
day that will mean an improvement in your physical and mental behavior
"tomorrow" is not too much to fit into your busy program.
Some time ago we mentioned that several sorority houses, including
Kappa Kappa Gamma, Alpha Xi Delta, Alpha Epsilon Phi, had already be-
gun the program on their own. Jordan Hall is reported, also as having be-
gun a policy of going to bed at 10:45 p.m. and getting up at 7 a.m. for a
mass exercise program until 7:30 a.m. All this led the WAA Board to be-
lieve that a program was being demanded by the students, and that capable
leaders were needed to direct it.
Conducting an experiment is the Women's Physical Education Depart-
ment. At the first meetings of this new indoor season of physical education
classes this week, the students of the classes are being asked to run through
a series of endurance tests. For example, one of the tests will be to run
around the track. The results will be tabulated at this time, and then at
the end of the season, eight weeks later, the same tests will be given and
reports made as to the changes in the endurance of the students. The
Physical Education Department then expects to be able to show vital sta-
tistics as to which classes lend themselves most appreciably to improvement
in physical condition. Will it be fencing, body mechanics, badminton or
what? That question will be answered at the end of the semester.

Max Bruch's Concerto is a favorite with performers because it
offers great opportunity for virtuosity. Listeners like it for its
wealth of romantic melody. Nathan Milstein, violinist, is assisted
by John Barbirolli and the New York Philharmonic Orchestra.
Columbia MM-516 $3.78
Stokowski's symphonic synthesis is based on the original score
rather than on the popular Rimsky-Korsakov's paraphrase. The
result is like a free modern symphony. We recognize several of
the great choruses of the work, heard here in orchestral form:
the brilliant and barbaric music of the Coronation Scene, the
famous ballad of the Siege of Kozan, the pitiful Song of the
Idiot, and the haunting Death of Boris. Stokowski and the
All-American Youth Orchestra.
KERN Mark Twain
Columbia MX-227 $2.70
Of the three musical portraits commissioned by Andre Kostel-
anetz, Jerome Kern's "Mark Twain" is outstanding. It describes
Twain and his career in four episodes: Hannibal Days, Gorgeous
Pilot House, Wanderings Westward and finally, Mark in Erup-
tion. You can't miss Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn. Andre
