hunting for the evasive slide rule,
which is a necessary part of the
dance decorations, but so far no trace
of it has been reported. As prp-
viously announced, however, decora-

Need for Aid
At St. Joseph's
Is Announced
"Volunteers are needed at any and
all of the time at St. Joseph's Mercy
hospital for simple routine tasks
which can be performed by an un-
trained person, and thus can relieve
nurses for more technical uties," ac-
cording to Barbara Sternfels, '44,
chairman of the project. -
With the call of more and more
nurses every day into the armed sur-
vices, St. Joseph's hospital, as well as
other hospitals, feels the strain of dn
under-staffed personnel.
Coeds are most urgently needed to
perform simple tasks such as answer-
ing hospital calls, filling Water
pitchers and changing flowers, wrap-
ping supplies, winding silk in the op-
erating rooms and performing simple
desk jobs such as charting tempera-
Equally under-staffed is the office.
Women are needed for assistance in
tpying, mimeographing and filing:
The hour between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.
is the busiest at the hospital because
of the passing of dinner trays. Help at
this time is most greatly appreciated.
Women, not presently enrolled in a
hospital project, who would be inter-
ested in this endeavor, may contact
Miss Sternfels at 23119 or Miss Ethel
McCormick, in the undergraduate of-
fice of the League.
Plans Are Laid
For Rec-Rally
Dancing, Games Are Arranged
For Second WAA Sports Party
With the success of the first infor-
mal sports party in mind, the Wo-
men's Athletic Association and Phys-
ical Education department for wo-
men will sponsor a second "Rec-
Rally," at 8:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.
Saturday, at Barbour an Waterman
This affair, which is open to all
men and women on campus, stag or
by couple, will consist of an evening
of co-recreational sports, games and
square dancing. Soldiers on campus
will be especially invited to attend.
For ease and comfort in stretch-
ing for a deck tennis ring, skirts and
sweaters, bluejean or similar attire
is suggested. Tennis shoes mut be
worn on the Barbour gym floor,
where badminton and volleyball will
be played, but street shoes will be
acceptable for the square dancing.
Besides the sports games already
mentioned, guests will be. able to
swing from ping pong to shuffle-
board, aerial darts and bowling, dur-
ing the early part of the evening.
Square dancing to the tune of a
real grange band will be on the latter
part of the program, and Mr. Howard
Leisee, of the Men's Physical Edu-
cation department, will be caller.
Plans have been made for the
members of the WAA Board to act
as hostesses and to make introduc-
tions among those present. They
will arrange the various games, also,
a and be on hand to answer questions
on technique and scoring.

Each head-turning style flashes a mes-
sage in the De Lso Deb code of
youth, saying "it's Spring ... remem-
ber?" Yes, it's fun to be first with
the new, in shoes that match the livelys
tempo of the times.






Am I thrilled! This is my big
furlough week-end. You know
what I mean .. . the man of
my life is coming in.
"HE'S 1-A ...
Wait 'till he sees me in my new
print from Dillon's. It has that
classic tailored look, green, with
lots of polka-dots. Their bang
ling two-piece faille dresses are
grand for school. But the pow-
der pink and blue silk jerseys
... for dates . .. oh!
I was worried sick, 'till I walked
into the Smartest Hosiery
Shop. Anyone who wants to
look completely dressed - up,
must have a pair of smooth
looking mesh stockings.. The
mesh rayons and lisles are won-
derful values . .. all sizes, in all
the new spring shades. They
won't run, either!
To match my tailored suit on
Saturday . . . a smart roomy
saddle-leather bag. It's green,
with that hand-stitched trim,
shoulder straps, too. They
come in all colors, at Mr. Fos-
ter's Remembrance Shop. I
added a leather jewelry set ..
pin, bracelet, and earrings.
He's sure to notice my new ray-
on silk jersey print blouse. For
a change, I'll try a white crepe
classic shirt. Both sell at the
Mademoiselle Shop . . . sure
things for spring! A swell top-
per for slacks is a cotton striped
shirt . . . red, navy, or brown.

Soldiers go for sweater girls!
The "Baggy Maggy" 100% wool
sweater comes in heavenly
haze, maize, and cherry.. at
Collin's. The other new all
wool sweaters had me breath-
less! Pullovers and cardigans
in baby blue, pink, and yellow
sea green, dusty rose, or-
chid, and white.
