Clyde Lucas


To Play for Frosh-Soph Ball

Sale of Tickets
Starts Monday
For 'M Hop'
Central Committee Believes
Affair To Be Last All-Campus
Dance Sanctioned by University
Clyde Lucas and his orchestra will
furnish the music for "M-Hop." the
Frosh-Soph Ball, which will be held
from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m., April 9, in the
Union Ballroom, it was announced
yesterday by co-chairman Stan Wal-
lace, '45.
This will be the first Michigan
affair at which Lucas has played. An
accomplished musician .on nine dif-
ferent instruments, Lucas concen-
trates largely on the violin and trom-
bone. His band is composed of 16
men and a feminine vocalist and em-!
ploys 72 instruments in all. It is be-
cause of the diversified talents of
his instrumentalists that Lucas' band
has often been termed the "most ver-
satile" band known.
Tickets To Go on Sale
Tickets for the ball will be on sale
from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday and
Tuesday at the travel desk in the
Union, and a limited number will be
reserved for freshmen and sopho-
mores. If any tickets are left, they
will be placed on general sale after
"Michigan Memories" will be the
theme of the dance and will be built
around the customs and traditions
most typical of life on the Michigan
campus. The theme has been espe-
cially chosen inasmuch as it is be-I
lieved by the central committee that
this will be the last all-campus dance
to be sanctioned by the University
this semester.
Now Playing in New York
Clyde Lucas is now playing in New
York, and will go on to Hollywood
after his appearance here, for further
engagements. The recent trend of
his band has been from sweeter ar-
rangements to more swing and "solid"
In former years the freshman and
sophomore classes have held separate
dances, but this year they are com-
bining their efforts in order to cut
down on expense and to make the
affair a bigger event than ever.

'Qingham Hop'
Will Be Today
Guests at Rec-Rally Will Wear
Costumes in the Rustic Mode
"Gingham Hop," pseudonym for
the latest Rec-Rally, will be in full
swing from 8:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. today
at Barbour and Waterman gyms as
gymnasts and square dancers go all
out for costumes in an effort to snag
the prizes offered by the committee
for the funniest and the most original
"get ups."
Of what the prizes will consist is
still a secret to all but committee
members, but they will be announced
before the frolic is over. "Anything
goes," is the catch word for costumes,
and the more "hickish" the outfits,
the better it will be for all concerned.
Games and sports will be super-
vised by members of the recreational
leadership class, a course sponsored
by the Department of Physical Edu-
cation for Women. The course is, as
its title implies, designed to teach
women how to plan and carry out
play time projects for young and old.
Consequently, the latest Rec-Rally is
providing opportunities for members
of the class to get in their so-called
practice teaching.
Other innovations of "Gingham
Hop" are the addition of "Oddity
Hall," a room in which all sorts of
parlor games will be in progress, and
a public address system which will
allow square dancers to hear Howard
Liebee better as he sounds out the
swing steps.
Sports and games will rule from
8:30 p.m. to 11 p.m., continuing dur-
ing the square dancing which will
begin at 9:30. Soldiers and civilians,
with or without dates, are invited to
attend. A small admission charge
will be levied in order to allay the
cost of badminton birds, darts and
other equipment.
Announcement has been made of
the election of the following officers
of the Figure Skating Club for next
year: Nancy Upson, '44, continuing
as manager; Ruth Weinberg, '45,
secretary, and Kay McFee, '45, treas-

dent residence, announces its newly

Lieut. Nina Muncie, WAAC recruiting
officers from Detroit, will interview
applicants for the Corps.
College women meeting the qualifi-
cations of the WAAC may enroll and
upon request be placed on inactive
status until the close of the current
school year or until the completion
of the school course in which they are
enrolled provided such course can be
completed in one year.
Requirements Listed
If you are a United .States citizen,
aged 21 to 44 inclusive, of good repute,
of any race, color or creed, married
or single, and can meet the physical
and remaining requirements, you are
eligible for the WAAC.
Students who are 20 years old and
are interested in joining the WAAC
are urged to meet Lieut. Muncie or
Lieut. Hudgens and leave their names
as the age limit for WAAC recruits
will soon be lowered from 21 to 20.
Linguists Needed
There is a special need for linguists
and musicians in the WAAC although
women with all types of training can
be used. Cashiers, accountants, cleri-

Lieut. Hudgens said that women
are being rushed through more rap-
idly than formerly. She explained.
"The need is so great that the Army
has asked us to rush new WAAC's
through. In the past it was often
months before a candidate was on
her Way to a new Army station. The
usual time is now a week. Within two
weeks new members are usually ac-
cepted and dispatched to their new

But Youth Marches to War
THIS WEEK another spring began, but it is not the usual thoughts of
spring that come to mind. The moon is full this week but many
young men who a year ago were driving their sweethearts to the movies
or walking with themunder the campus elms are in training camps, at
sea., on Pacific islands, flying bombers over Europe.
Some of them took Gafsa on Thursday and are today marching on
Gabes. Some are wounded and some are dead, and more will be. This is
the spring they have been waiting for. They must face it, and so must
we. And the summer that comes after it.
They are attacking or preparing to attack. This is the new thing in
the war of the United Nations in March, 1943. The attack will not be
easy or cheap. It will test this generation of youth as none has ever
been' tested. it will test the faith of those who must remain at home;
those to whom the telegrams come, those mentioned in the casualty
lists as next of kin.
SPRING AND SUMMER are short seasons when one is going to col-
lege. or is planning a carefree vacation in the mountains, or has just
taken his first job, or when a boy and girl are newly married. They will
not be short this year. They Will be made up of nights and days of anx-
iety and, for some, of anguish. Courage and faith will be needed to en-
dure them.' The mountainsinto which this year's graduates must go
are sinister in their tragic beauty. Death will descend from the air on
lovely beaches.
Time was in this land when youth seemed irresponsible, almost too
free from care. The oldsters looked back toward their own sometimes
meager beginnings and shook their heads. Were we, in this age of easy
freedoms, producing young men of character? And now we know the
faith that was latent in them, their strength to carry burdens, their
unassuming valor and fortitude. Out of the old springs and summers,
out of the dancing, the motoring, the high school pranks, have been
born these qualities.
This spring they will use them in battle. The blossoming time of
1943 will not soon be forgotten. It will be a legend reverently told and
listened to in the winter of their generation. They will be fighting so
that springs in time to come may not be like this one.
