Ann Arbor WAAC Likes Army
But 'Craves Service Overseas


Spirit Of Christmas Prevails
As Nine Groups Hold Dances


Wife of a renowned Flying Tiger
who has seen much action in China,
Third Officer Mary Newell, first re-
ported WAAC officer from Ann Ar-
bor, was graduated from Officer's
Training School at Fort Des Moines,
Iowa, on November7,in the seventh
class-just 11 months after Pearl
Third Officer Newell's rank is com-
parable to that of a second lieutenant
in the Army. Home on a ten-day
leave, she expressed her desire in an
interview to be sent overseas. "When
I get back to Des Moines, I will do
company work, which means training
and drilling auxiliary WAACS. Then
I would really like to see overseas
duty. Of course the Women's Army
Auxiliary Corps is a purely non-com-
batant force, designed primarily to
replace army men doing office and
administration work."
Graduated in '37
A graduate of the University in the
class of '37 and a Latin major, Third
Officer Newell worked at the Uni-
versity 'Hospital for some time as a
medical social worker. Like every oth-
er WAAC, when Third Officer Newell
joined, she signed up for the dura-
tion plus six months. "Every woman
in the Army Auxiliary Corps is also

subject to overseas duty," she stated,
"and most of the women I have asso-
ciated with are anxious to go."
"We are most pleased to see the
enthusiastic acceptance of the WAAC
unit in all military spheres; "and in-
cidentally," she continued, "I was
especially delighted to have members
of the ROTC salute me as I walked
down the "Diag."
Wears Two-Tone Uniform
Third Officer Newell was wearing
her winter dress uniform, which con-
sisted. of a "pink" skirt (actually
khaki in color) and a forest green fit-
ted jacket on the lapels of which were
the insignia of the WAAC, which is
Pallas Athene, ancient Greek goddess
of wisdom. Her hat, similar to the
Foreign Legion visor cap, bore the
gold eagle design granted to officers
upon graduation.
"About make-up," said Third Offi-
cer Newell in answer to our queries
of how much WAACS are permitted
to wear, "certainly we are allowed to
wear it, and nail polish, too, as long
as it isn't conspicuous. Complete out-
fits of clothing are issued to us, in-
cluding three pairs of cotton hose and
four pairs of rayon."
New Recruits Welcome
"The camp at Des Moines, which
now houses 5,000 WAACS, is con-
stantly receiving new recruits as the
law for the Women's Army Auxiliary
Corps calls for a maximum of 150,000
members at present. The corps will
take women between the ages of 21
and 45, and, although a college degree
is not required, most officers have
had some college training."
"Although the training period was
stiff," she concluded, "the thrill of
receiving my gold bars more than
made up for it. I am now waiting for
the opportunity to salute my husband
who is a captain in the Air Corps."
