the spirit of campus celebrants.
This is almost certainly the first
time in University history that classes
will be held on New Year's Day. Even
Ann Arbor old-timers can't remember
professors and students alike going
to'class on Jan. 1.
New Year's Eve in Ann Arbor and
classes the day after are a conse-
quence of an acute transportation
shortage occasioned by war condi-,
tions. Although this is unprecedented,

According to Kelner, a high spot
of the evening will be the launching
of a campus wide war bond and stamp
sale at a special booth in the I-M
Building. Warsages, corsages made of
war savings stamps, will be sold.' All
pyoceeds of the campaign will be
directed to the Bomber Scholarship

the elimination of frills will prevent

Reported Aiding
Deserting Soldier
MIAMI, Fla., Dec. 30.-G)-Author
Ursula Parrott nervously blamed an
"impulse" today for leading her into
trouble over the flight from an Army
stockade of a young private with
whom she has been friendly.
She formally pleaded innocence to
a charge of aiding a soldier to de-
sert, but told newsmen that the story-
like incident was no fault of Private
Michael Neely Bryan of Germantown,
Tenn., a former guitar player in
-Benny Goodman's dance band.
Federal Bureau of Investigation
agents investigated the case thor-
oughly because, agent in charge A.
P. Kitchin reported, Bryan, 26, has
been charged in a warrant issued ae
New York with transporting narco-
The warrant, which Kitchin said
involves the drug marijuana, is in the
hands of Federal men here but has
not been served on Bryan because
of his military arrest. Kitchin said
the soldier would be returned to New
York to face trial as soon as military
authorities release him.
The four-times-married, thrice-di-
vorced author was released under
$1,000 bond pending grand jury ac-
tion on the Federal charges naming
a crime which woud have a maximum
penalty upon conviction of three
years' imprisonment and a $2,000
She was accused of going to the
Miami Beach stockade Monday after-

punished for leaving camp without
permission. Once inside, charged As-

back seat of her automobile, and sped

Ball Tickets May Be Purchased
At Army, Navy Headquarters;
ROTC, NROTC Will Attend
Hailed as "the nation's newest sen-
sation," Bob Chester and his orches-
tra have been engaged to play for
the annual Army-Navy Ball, to be
held from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday,
Jan. 22, at the Sports Building.
Before organizing his own band,
Chester was saxophone player with
many of-the big time New York or-
chestras. His first job was with Paul
Specht, and in order he joined Arn-
old Johnson, Ben Pollack, Irving Aar-
onson and Ben Bernie.
Organized Own Band
Organizing a group of unknown
musicians in 1935, Bob Chester se-
cured his first job in his home town
at the Detroit Athletic Club. From
then on the band skyrocketed from
one noted ballroom to another.
Chester's broadcasting over all the
major networks aided his climb to
fame. The band features brunette
vocalist Betty Bradley, who is popular
through her recording work, and
Gene Howard, tenor.
Tickets Available
Tickets to the Ball, which is open
to all members of the ROTC and
NROTC, including basic students,
may be purchased at Army or Navy
headquarters or from any member
of the central committee, according
to Cadet Col. Charles Thatcher, '43,
and NROTC Lieut.-Comm. Al Mac-
tier, 144, co-chairmen of the affair.
No programs or other favors will
be given away at the party, in order
to keep expenses down during war-
time. However, the dance will be a
colorful affair, because it is custom-
ary for the Army and Navy reserve
cadets to attend the dance inuni-
form. Other' decorations will consist
of military equipment, flags and
Ball Date Advanced
Proceeds from the Ball will be di-
vided between the Military Science
department, Naval Science depart-
ment and the Bomber-Scholarship.
Ordinarily held in spring, the date
of the Ball has been set ahead this
year, because many of the advance
corps men are graduating seniors. As
it is possible that some basic students
may leave at the end of this semes-
ter also, the dance will provide a last
get-together and a last chance to
relax before exams for many mem-
bers of the two military reserve
