Annual
Senior Society
Sponsors Dance
'Doc' Spracklin And Orchestra
To Play At Victory 'Jingle Jive'
"The spirit of Christmas" was
heard in Mosher-Jordan and Stock-
well halls yesterday, and will be heard
in the remaining dormitories today,
as members of Senior Society dance
through the dining rooms singing to
the strains of "Jingle Bells."
The theme of their song is based
on the "Jingle Jive," to be given by
the group from 9 p.m. to midnight
Friday in the League Ballroom. This
affair will be Senior Society's version
of the Victory Dances, which are
presented each Friday and Saturday.
Each Victory Dance is sponsored by
a different campus organization.
It has been discovered that many
new students on campus do not know
what is meant by the Bomber-Schol-
arship, to which the entire proceeds
from the Victory Dances are do-
nated. For this reason, the singers
hesitated a few minutes at -Jordan
Hall in order to explain the purpose
of the fund.
"Doc" Spracklin and his orchestra
will play for the "Jive." In keeping
with the theme of -the dance, Sprack-
In will present a Christmas medley.

Military
Yearly Event
Now Includes
All Trainees
Proceeds To Go To Bomber
Scholarship And To NROTC,
ROTC Science Departments
For the first time since its incep-
tion, all members of the ROTC and
NROTC, including basic students,
are invited to attend in uniform the
annual Military Ball, to be held from
9 p.m. to 1 a.m., Friday, Jan. 22, at
the Intramural Building.
Decorations for the affair will con-
sist of military equipment, such as
flags and bunting, according to Ca-
det Col. Charles Thatcher, '43. No
programs or favors will be given, in:
keeping wth the war simplicity, and
all proceeds from the dance will be
divided among the military : science
department, the naval science de-
partment and the Bomber-Scholar-
ship.
Central committee for the ball will
be announced later in the week, and
the orchestra will be revealed soon,
also, says Col. Thatcher.
Ordinarily held in spring, Military
Ball will give students one last chance;
to relax before final exams. Date of
the party was pushed. ahead this_
year, because many of the advanced
corps men of ROTC are graduating
seniors. Also, it is possible that some.
of the basic students may be leav-
ing.
A colorful dance because of the
uniforms and decorations, Military
Ball will afford a last get-together
for many members of the' corps. A
straw vote already conducted has in-
dicated that approximately 600 ROTC
students and 200 members of the
NROTC plan to attend the affair.

WindbreakerExhibit at League
Features 750th Service Jacket

Representing generous effort and
war service are two leather wind-
breaker jackets on exhibit until
Weds., Dec. 16, in the main, Jobby of
the ,League.
One jacket, from the last World
War, made of old gloves, shows a de-
cided contrast to the other, a blue,
grey, brown, yellow, red, and green
vest, which was finished by Mrs. Wal-
ter Pillsbury last week.
Under the direction of Mrs. Charles
E. Koella, wife of Professor Koella of
the Romance language department,
a group of faculty and< Ann Arbor
women have been making windbreak-
ers for servicemen since the' first
meeting at the Koella home on March
25, 1941.
Makes First Jacket
On March 28th, 1941, Mrs. Pills-
bury brought in the first windbreaker,
.made in Ann Arbor. Last Wednesday,
Dec. 2, Mrs. Pillsbury brought in her
104th jacket, which- is now being ex-
hibited at the League. After the exhi-
bition it will be sent to His Royal=
Highness, Crown Prince Olav of Nor-
way.
Last week, Mrs. Koella opened her
home to the Ann Arbor Windbreaker
Group for the 75th time, and at that
meeting the 750th jacket -was fin-
ished. To date, 2,120 windbreakers
have been made, and made solely in
Michigan. Of that total, almost one-
third came from the Ann Arbor
group.
Made from Leftovers
Windbreakers are made from auto-
mobile upholstery leftovers, 20 tons
of which have been donated to the
group by the Hudson Motor Co. of
Detroit. Another 75 tons came from
Mr. William Hollands, superintendent
emeritus of printing and binding.of
the University Library, who saved
that amount for 10 years from-scraps
of bookbinding.
Every Wednesday from 2:30 to 5
p.m. the group meets at the home of
the .chairman, Mrs. Koella, to collect
a bag containing nine pounds of
scrap leather, two lining of sturdy
grey wool, and one ;spool of thread,
and to turn in the jackets they have
completed.
Sent Each Week
These are taken to Detroit by Dr.
Norbert Kulsavage. From there they
are sent express to New York, and
each week are in the hold of a ship
on their way to London, England- At
the Dartmouth House, headquarters
of the English Speaking Union, the
jerkins are distributed by Lady
Pound, wife of the First Sea Lord -of
Britain, and by Lady Alexander, wife
of the First Lord of the Admiralty.
Dartmouth has given the jackets

to American volunteers with the
British and Canadian forces, as well
as to British servicemen. Mrs. Koel-
la's brother, Consul of Norway in
London, has distributed some of them
to Norwegians in England.
In the lining of each jacket is a
large roomy pocket on which is sewn
a tape with the name of the English
Speaking Union. Oftentimes the wo-
men who make the jackets enclose
some small gifts in the pockets.
Englishmen Send Thanks
As a result, many letters of thanks
have been received. The last letter
from England arrived in Ann Arbor
in November. It was from a petty of-
ficer on a submarine. He says, "We
become victims of the prevailing ele-
ments precisely the same as other
ships. The bridge personnel each have
a jerkin.+ We find them completely
windproof; this is essential, for ordi-
nary woolen garments are quite use-
less unless covered by wind resisting
material. The jerkins were found
ideal garments for this purpose and
have created quite a fashion in ap-
parel for wear on patrol."

Now you know how your house rates-at least in the Voluntary Phys-
ical Fitness program, and at least for this past week. In case- you-missed
seeing the huge progress chart, ,we'll tell you that it's in the lobby of the
League.
Compliments go to several of the houses with perfect scores, but it
seems that others should be in the doghouse, because participation slips
were not even handed in by their athletic managers. Are your faces red?
Well, :anyhow, we expect slips to be handed in from every house at the,
leadership meeting at 4 p.m. Friday at Barbour.
Say, if you're not doing the exercises, you don't know what you're
missing. -It's really fun, and we all look forward to the 10:30 whistle to put
away that accounting or Shakespeare for 15 minutes and "reeelax chillun."
The new. set of exercises for this week are really finding our weak spots,
but we eat, it up.
Even Helen Garrels, who certainly should be able to take it after her
accident playing football this fall, was seen limping around the League after.
Monday night's exercises.
Patient and energetic Nancy Upson has divided the Figure Skating
club into two groups, so that instruction will be better. General instruction
will be given at first and then technique will be taught individually. If you
can get your hands on a pair of figure skates, come out to the meetings,
3:15 p.m. Tuesdays or Wednesdays at the Coliseum.
Roll them down the alleys, bowlers, for the tournament schedule is
posted at the WAB and all matches are to be played off by Saturday. Off
to dinner.
