chairmen, have announced.
The Bluebook Jump Will be the

sorosis Wins


WAA Honors
For Exercises
Louise Forbush Congratulated;
Madison House Leads Dorms,
Zone No. 4, League Houses
"Most consistent exercisers" is the
phrase due to be bestowed on the
members of Collegiate Sorosis, who
take top honors for this past semester
in participation in the WAA Volun-
tary Physical Fitness program.
Deserving praise for her leadership
in making her house not only tops
among sororities, but leader of all
residence houses, is Louise Forbush,
'45. Second place in the sorority di-
vlsioff goes to Kappa Kappa Gamma,
under the leadership of athleti cman-
ager Bett Carpenter, '45. Kappa Al-
pha Theta wins third spot, with Jo-
sephine Bolesser, '43, the leader.
Madison House Leads
Virginia Burr, '45, of Madison
House, brought her house to first
place among the dormitories, while
Alumnae House placed second under
Eleanor Hunn, '45. Ruth Edberg, '45,
is responsible for the success of Helen
Newberry in third place.
Zone 4 won first place among the
league house zones, arid Peggy Paige,
'46. was athletic manager. Second
and third "placers" are Zone 3, with
leader Catherine Shilson, '46, and
Zone 6, under Gloria Roberts, '43.
League Houses Averaged
Results of the league houses were
figured on the zone average, of
course, so many other individual
houses had excellent participation,
but suffered as other members of
their zone brought the average down.
Two. houses deserving special praise
for, participation are Mrs. Benson's
house and Mrs. Reeves.'
"Although no participation will be
tabulated during exam Week," ac-
cording to Shelby Dietrich, '45, chair-
man of the project, "the WA4 Board;
urges residences to continue the exer-
cises for sake of relaxation and en-
durance." The Voluntary physical
Fitness program will be continued
throughout next semester, although
athletic managers will be only asked
to bring participation results and re-
ceive new exercises every other week.




Brightening Willow Run Barracks
Will Be Project Of Art Students



Murals with plenty of appeal will
be the contribution of Prof. Jean P.
Slusser's class in pictorial composi-
tion toward better morales in the Wil-.
low Run bomber pilot barracks, ac-
cording to' the latest reports of the
art students.
Skating girls, farmerettes, "Follies"
dancers, cowboys, and baseball scenes
have already been submitted by the
students to be judged by Professor
Slusser and a group of art instructors.
The best of these small, single-figure
paintings will be hung between the
windows of the recreation rooms to
brighten the drab walls and drooping
aesthetic sensibilities of the pilots and
ground crews.
Larger Murals To Be Painted
Larger iurals, consisting of several
figures and of a wider range in subject
matter, will be painted directly on the
walls of these rooms. All this will be
done during the week between semes-.
ters by the four or five students whose
work has been judged the best.
The idea began when a group of
pOtblic-spirited citizens, visiting Wil-
low' Run, saw how gray and gloomy
the living accommodations for the
soldiers were and suggested that the
architectural school do something in
the way of decoration.
Instituted As Class Project
Such enthusiasm greeted their sug-
gestion that Professor Slusser decided
to institute it as a class project. The
artistic . problem involved was the
use of the two-dimensional mural
.style, usually requiring monumental

and elevated subject-matter, to paint
sprightly and slightly burlesque
scenes, calculated to take the men's
minds off their environment.
Only the designs will be included
as class work. The process of "blowing
up" the preliminary paintings-that
is, making them mural size-and put-
ting them on the walls depend entire-
ly on the students, who have seized,
the proposition to devote their vaca-
tion time for a worthy and construc-
tive cause.
Novelist Stands Trial
On Charge Of Aiding
In Army Desertion
MIAMI, Fla., Jan. 23-(P)-Ursula
Parrot, novelist, must stand trial Feb.
25 on charges arising from the es-
cape of a soldier, Pvt. Michael Neely
Bryan, from a stockade. Bryan al-
ready has been courtmartialed and
sentenced to a year's imprisonment,
on a charge of desertion.
Mrs. Parrott, 40 and married four
times, is charged with assisting a
soldier to desert, harboring a deserter;
and subversive activities by causing
insubordination and refusal of duty
by a member of the military forces.
The third count, based on the War
Act of June, 1940, met its first test in
court today with defense attorney A.:
C. Dressler declaring it duplicitous
and failing to show what duty Mrs.
Parrott intereferred with by driving
Bryan out of an army stockade in
her car. Bryan at the time was a 20-
day prisoner for having been absent
without leave.
Lack of precedent sent counsel and
Judge John W. Holland exploring
through law books, before the jurist
overruled the objection.
Dressler also attacked the first

$2,000 bond and will be arraigned the
morning the trial opens.

pecially worthwhile -waging is the
fight against infantile paralysis, the
children's enemy.

celebration of the President's Birth-
day will climax the drive.
Dimes and dollars sent to the
White House during the' annual
"March of Dollars and Dimes" are
not spent for showy buildings nor
are they wasted in any Way. These
dimes andsdollars roll up their
sleeves and go right to work in a
cause that- aids polio victims, re-
gardless of race, creed or color.
Half of the money. raised in the
"March of Dollars and Dimes" goes
to the local chapters in 2900 coun-
ties of the U.S.A. and' its posses-
sions. The other half is disbursed
by the National Foundation in
grants for research and other ave-
nues whiqh may lead to victory over
infantile paralysis.
One reason why their need this
year is unusually great lies in the

grim news that an epidemic of the
dread polio is due this year. All evi-
dence points to the fact that infan-
tile paralysis increases alarmingly

THE NEWS is not all bad, however,
for defenses and counter attacks
