Seniors may rent their caps and
gowns for this night at Moe's
Sport Shop, and are urged to ob-
tain them sometime this week.
Previously caps and gowns were
rented at the League, but the
practice - has been abolished this
affair because it will take the shape
of a benefit performance for Chi-
nese relief this year.
The entire downstairs of the The-
atre will be reserved for senior wom-
en, who will all be garbed in caps
and gowns, and will have their usual
hour of fun before the junior stunts.
This will include skits from last
year's JGP, and other traditional

The Ann Arbor Library Club will
hold a meeting at 7:45 p.m. to-

Twenty Positions
Open to Women



Women will be permitted to leave
a smock, shirt of blouse at the sur-
gical dressings unit this week, which
will be open from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
today and tomorrow in the game
room of the League.
Marjorie Storkan, '43, chairman of,
the project, announced that this con-
cession is bing made because some
coeds still do not realize that sweaters
alone cannot possibly be worn to do
this type of work. Any cotton gar-
ment, worn over the sweater, is per-
missible, however.
A head-dress is also essential. For
women who do not own a regular
surgical dressings hat, scarfs and ker-
chiefs are recommended.
The houses especially invited to
attend today are: Alpha Gamma Del-
ta, Kappa Kappa Gamma and Helen
Kappa Alpha Theta, Alpha Epsilon
Phi and Betsy Barbour are especially
urged to attend tomorrow. Next
Thursday one of the houses of this
group will receive recognition as hav-

"We set 'em up, and you knock 'em down" That's the latest WAA
motto, and naturally we're referring to the bowling project.
Yep, it may sound fantastic, but it's true that members of WAA are
stepping into the shoes of pinboys in order to make it possible for women
students to bowl for the old reduced price--that is one game for the price
of a couple of candy bars. Alleys are located down at the WAB, of course.
Best of all, however, gals, is that you can bring your boy friends along
for a few lines. Non-students may bowl at the WAB also, and the alleys
are always open at the following times: from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. and '
p.m. to 9 p.m. every weekday. Week-end "strikers" will find the alleys
available from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays.
So hold your breath before saying that women can't take it, because
"WAA's" are getting to be expert setter-uppers, and we dare you to make
ten strikes in a row-we dare you, so take it up!
If you haven't been to a "Rec-Rally" yet, well, as the old saying goes,
"you don't know what you're missing." The gym upstairs and down be-
comes one mad gallery, and the halls are full of screams and laughter. We
guarantee that you can't possibly become bored here. Try your hand at
one game, when you get tired there are many others to satisfy your moods,
and loads of congenial people to play with.
Due to the success of the first two rallies, and the obvious demand for
something in the way of co-recreational activity, the series of "Rec-Rallies"
will be continued, according to Helen Willcox. Plans are now being made
for another affair in about two weeks, so watch for the announcement
of the date.
Now a few bits of gossip from our notebook:
Contestants in the table tennis and badminton tournaments, here's
an ultimatum to play off your matches by the end of this week absolutely,
Concluding the season, the Figure Skating Club has been invited to
skate with the Ann Arbor Senior Club Sunday. Officers for next year will
be elected at the regular meeting Friday.
Winning over the wires sounds like Mandrake the Magician's activities,
but this time it was Rifle Club, which won from Wheaton and Drexel Insti-
tute. Sadder news to compensate for the "gladder" is that Michigan's team
lost to Penn States. Mid-semester calling-so long.

Junior Panhellenic Delegates
Will Interview for Council
Wednesday Through Friday
Five positions on the Panhellenic
Council will be open for petitioning
beginning today and continuing
through Tuesday, Virginia Morse,
'43, president of Panhellenic, an-
Petitioning is open to any junior
delegate to Panhellenic who has had
at least four months' experience in
the association as a delegate from
her sorority. Interviewing for the
offices will take place Wednesday
through Friday in the Undergraduate
Office of the League.
Five Positions Are Open
Positions that are open are: presi-
dent, vice-president, recording secre-
tary, rushing secretary, and treasurer.
The duties of the president, as are
the usual duties of the head of an
organization, are concerned with act-
ing as general overseer and leader.
The recording secretary takes min-
utes at the meetings and is responsi-
ble for all correspondence. The rush-
ing secretary is obliged to keep com-
plete records of pledgings and initia-
tions. The treasurer of the organi-
zation is. responsible for collecting
dues from the sorority houses on
campus, for paying bills, and for
keeping an expense account of all
money spent by Panhellenic. Fin-
ally, the vice-president will preside
in the absence of the president and
will serve in an advisory capacity for
all Panhellenic activities.
Two Annual Functions
During the year, the activities of
the organization are numerous. Two
of its major functions are the annual
Banquet and Ball, the former for wel-
coming the new pledges to Panhel-
lenic, the latter a formal dance given
by all sorority women on campus.
This past year, Panhellenic has
been concerned with active support
on its part to defense projects and
drives. This semester, the organiza-
tion has redoubled the all-out-for-
defense policy with its curtailment
of needless expenses at sorority-house
dances, with the elimination of dec-
orations and programs for the Ball,
scheduled March 27, and with its re-
cent sponsorship of the Blod Bank
drive for donations from women on

cently made by George S. Van
Schiick, volunteer nurse's.aides may
now be assigned to Army hospitals,
under an agreement reached by the
Office of Civilian Defense, the Ameri-
can Red Cross and the Army.
Major Gen. James C. Magee, sur-
geon general of the Army, has re-

ses' aides in Army general and station

tary institution, a nurse's aide must
be a citizen of the United States or
of another of the United Nations,
and must have completed the re-
quired training and 150 hours of
pledged service. They must also be
willing to give a "sufficient number
of hours each week to make their
service worthwhile" added Mr. Van

Restaurants Notice
Rationing Changes
A great change will be noticed by
many people as an outcome of food
rationing in this country, according
to Ray Fling, executive secretary of
the Michigan Restaurant and Cater-
er's Association, which represents
over five hundred restaurants in
Restaurant eaters have already no-
ticed the omission of tomato juice
and canned peas from their accus-
tomed places on menues, and the
foodstuff supply of restaurants has
been cut down 50%, says Mr. Fling.
Six hundred eating places had col-
lapsed in Michigan before rationing
started because of the labor shortage,

Many Women Disturbed
"If I join some branch of the women's reserves now, what will my
chances be after the war of stepping into the career I am preparing for
in college?"
This is a question disturbing a great many women who are toying
with the idea of joining the WAACs, the WAVES, the SPARs or the Wom-
en's Reserves of the Marine Corps. It is only natural to think about the
problem, and one cannot be blamed for worrying about jobs in the future.
But the main thing to think about now is that the armed forces need
women so that men may be released for active duty all over the world. The
need at this very moment is great: there is a job to do, and women must
not shirk their responsibilities.
At a time of so-called "crisis" it seems selfish to concern one's self
only with thoughts about jobs after the war is won.
However, many employers have already expressed their willingness to
accept women who have served their country well in time of need. What's
more, the training received in the armed forces will be carried over into
private industry, opening up fields for special service in many types of work.
The fields of work in which uniformed women are now employed are
expanding fields-many of them the results of wartime'needs-but still
fields which will remain wide open for years to come. New industries have
cropped up as the result of war, and after they are converted to peacetime
requirements, as so many of them will be. these same industries will con-
tinue to be serviced by the women who were the original workers. -
No implication that one should throw her college education out the
window to join the WAACs or the WAVES is meant. Education, too, is
vitally needed, and women must get all they can. But when college days
are over they must also realize that they can be of the greatest service to
their country by taking their places on the war fronts.
