Smartness as well as serviceability
will be the keynote of fashion for the
duration of the war. Women have
heard and will bear this statement1

be impressed enough with the impor-
tance of buying durable clothes.
The classic wool shirt-waist dress
is certain to remain in style for as

gical dressing stations in Ann Arbor,
the Red Cross officials plan to open
two new branches at Slauson Junior

the end of this month, for the pur-
pose of supplying the increasing de-
w and for Army and Navy bandages

CDVO To Aid
The campaign committee -of the
USO-Community Fuhd drive, headed
by Earl H. Cress, yesterday an-
nounced plans to use a great many
CDVO volunteers in the coming drive.
The volunteers will be selected
from the lists of persons registered
with the Civilian Defense Volunteer
Office. Those who have indicated a'
special interest in public contact work
and similar activities will be given
preference. They will be given posi-
tions in all divisions of the campaign.
Those volunteers who are signed as
campaign workers will receive credit
on the 'same basis as other volunteer
workers. This credit will apply toward
the completion of the 50 hours of
volunteer service required by the
Citizens Service Corps for member-
ship in that organization.
All persons who work in the cam-
paign and are enrolled with the
CVDO will receive credit for their
work. It makes no difference whether
they enter the drive through the Civ-
ilian Defense Volunteer Office or
whether they enter through other
Arbor High school, operating from 7.
until 10 p. in. Thursday.
Volunteers may work at the new
unit in Slauson Junior High School
from 7 until 10 p. m. every Wednes-
day. Red Cross officials have not yet
decided the nights on which the 'Tp-
pan school station will function but
evening hours are scheduled.
With these additional stations, tlie
Red Cross officers hope to overcome
any decrease in volunteer work dte
to gasoline rationing by establishing
stations within convenient walking
distance for the majority of the vo-
Instructors will be on hand at all
of these stations #nd the only uni-
form required is a clean work dress
or apron, according to Red Cross

Because slacks will become stan-
dard wear for classes in motor me-
chanics or first aid which are includ-
ed in the Women's War Training
Program, it will be necessary to have
at least' one or more pairs. Those

smartness in 'the fine check with
carefully tailored pleats down the
front. Dressed in these slacks with a

In doing the war work which will
be demanded of each woman, it will

saddle-shoes or low-heeled walking
shoes are a perfect combination with
either dress or slacks.

Conditioning Program Beginning
Tomorrow Will Stress Endurance
Here's the opportunity, time and
place specifically given, for the wo-
men on campus to start building up
their endurance and hardening their
bodies, in order that they be in the
best condition to help win this war.

and now all students are urged to
attend either of the two body condi-
tioning classes, to be held at 2:30
p. m. and 3:20 p. m. tomorrow at the

Anyone may attend, including i
freshmen who are enrolled in regular
physical education classes, also, up-
perclassmen are especially urged to
come out and make it a regular habit
according to Mrs. Dorothy Miller, of
the Physical Education department.
These classes will continue
throughout the semester at the ap-
pointed times. Students need not reg-
ister before-hand, but merely come
to the classes whenever they desire.
Weather permitting, the exercises
will be given outside on the field at
the W. A. B. When the classes are
forced inside, they will be held at
The program will include exercises,
marching, and an obstacle course,
following the one used in PEM. Be-
sides this special body-conditioning
program, the first part of all regular
physical education classes will be
spent on an endurance program. The
different sports classes, meeting at
the same time, will band together in
one big group for part of the hour
for a mass exercise program.
