Assembly Ball Will Be Held Jan. 9 In League Ballroom

For Committee
Beg ins Dec. 8
Elimination Of Decorations,
Big Orchestra Will Increase
Bomber Sch'olarship Donation
Saturday, Jan. 9 in the League
Ballroom is the date and place set
by Assembly Executive Council for
Assembly's annual ball, Betty New-
man, '43, president, announced yes-
terday, thus making it one of the
last big dances to be given this semes-
The affair has been moved up on
short notice from its customary
spyring date in order to give mid-year
graduates a chance to attend. Peti-
tioning and interviewing for commit-
tee positions will also be squeezed
into one week instead of two, so that
there will be more time to organize
dance plans.
Bring Petitions to Interviews
Instead of submitting petitions be-
forehand, all those trying out should
bring them to their interviews, which
will be held from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Tuesday, Dec. 8 through Friday, Dec.
11 in the Undergraduate Office of
the League, according to Miss New-
Positions open for petitioning are
general chairman, assistant general
chairman, program chairman, pa-
trons chairman, tickets chairman
and publicity chairman. Second se-
mester freshmen, sophomores, jun-
iors and seniors are eligible to peti-
Council to Officiate
All interviewing will be conducted
by the Executive Council, consisting
of Miss Newman, Dorothy, Schloss,
'43, vice-president; Mar'y Moore, '43,
secretary; Roberta Holland, '43,
treasurer, and Jean Conway, '43,
president of the league house group.
Though last year Assembly fea-
tured its triangle crest in ballroom
decorations, and Bernie Cummins'
orchestra furnished the music, there
will be no decorations this time, and
no out-pf-town orchestra. Instead of
investing in these features all pro-
ceeds will go to the Bomber-Scho-
larship fund.
Stork Pays Byrnr
Household A Visit
Capt. and Mrs. Robert Byrn of
Camp Grant, Ill., announce the birth
of a daughter, Carol Lynn. Mrs. Byrn,
who graduated from the University

Capt. Byrn was graduated from the
University Medical School and served

Songs, Scripts
For JQP Must
Be In By Tuesday
After Tuesday it will be too late
for any aspiring song or script writers
to enter JGP's skit and song contest,
Lucy Chase Wright, '44, announced;
for on that day all entries must be
turned in at Miss McCormick's office
in the League.
Although designed for the purpose
of selling war bonds and stamps,
skits may be of any theme but of lim-
ited length. Songs, on the other hand,
should pertain to the war theme in
order to further bond and stamp
All students, both men and women,
are eligible to enter this contest, and
one person may turn in any number
of entries. Instead of boxtops and
labels, one 10 cent war stamp is re-
quired with each skit or song which
is entered in the competition.
Following the idea of JGP, prize
for the contest will be a dollar defense
stamp, as well as a chance to have
the skit or song considered for a
Sunday morning broadcast. More-
over, the skits will be used as enter-
tainment at various campus func-
tions, including Senior Banquet.
"We are looking for a theme song,"
Miss Wright announced. She empha-
sized the fact that a catchy tune is
what is needed. "Be a triple-threat
student," she continued. "Have fun
writing, win a prize, and promote the
sale of defense bonds and stamps."
