Entertaining at Payoff Dance


Keynote To Be
And Relaxation,
Mortarboard's Dance Will
Benefit Victory Ball Escorts

Fail To See Necessity of Participation
In Campus Projects Vital to Victory
Exactly ten women students showed up at the surgical dressing unit
yesterday, even though the entire campus had been informed that the unit
would be open. Moreover, several houses were especially invited to turn out,

And Bomber Scholarship Fund but still the response was very poor.

An opportunity for coeds to take
their Victory Ball escorts dancing on
a return invitation, will be offered at
Mortar Board's Pay-Off Dance to be
given from 9 p.m. to midnight today
in the League Ballroom.
The dance will be conspicuous for
its free-and-easy informality with
community singing led by Nancy Fil-
strup, '43, and bridge tables set up in
the Ballroom.. Bingo games will be
held in the Kalamazoo Room, each
player paying one defense stamp for
five games. The winner of each game
gets three defense stamps as a prize.
Nickleodeon music will be furnished
for dancing.
Dean Lloyd Head Patron
Patrons who have been invited to
attend Pay-Off are Dean Alice C.
Lloyd, Miss Marie Hartwig, and Mr.
and Mrs. S. Graham. -
Pay-Off is a unique combination
this year of tradition and a means of.
adding money to the Bomber-Schol-
arship, all funds frcm the use of the
Ballroom going to this purpose. Us-
ually a return dance for J-Hop, it is
given this year for girls who wish to
return their invitations to Victory,

Recital To Be Given
Sunday Afternoon
By Maud Okkelberg
Mrs. Maud Okkelberg, assistant
professor of piano in the School of
Music, will present a recital at 4:15
p.m. Sunday in the Lydia Mendels-
sohn Theatre, playing compositions
by Mozart, Schubert, Haydn, Weber,
Castelnueve-Tedesco, Milhaud and
Mrs. Okkelberg has played a num-
ber of recitals in Ann Arbor' and near-
by cities and, as soloist with the Uni-
versity Symphony Orchestra. The
program that will be presented by
Mrs. Okkelberg Sunday will be pre-
sented Thursday, Feb. 18, at the Hor-
ace H. Rackham Educational Memor-
ial in Detroit.
Both programs are open to the pub-
lic without charge.

A unit of this sort is not established without someone putting forth a
good deal of effort. Mrs. Jesse Ormondroyd of the Red Cross gives up two
afternoons a week to this project, while the central committee has put in
countless hours fixing up the room in which the girls work, counting band-
ages, keeping a record of all bandages made, and publicizing this work.
Perhaps the fault lies in the fact that the students are not aware of the
purpose of this surgical dressing unit. It hasn't been established just to
allow coeds to try their hand at whipping up a bandage! The idea of the
project is to supply the large number of American soldiers who are being
wounded every day, with the dressings they are so badly in need of. Yet
because these gory sights are not strewn before the eyes of our feminine
students they easily eliminate any such thoughts from their minds.
There might even be some excuse if the work were the type that required
any use of skill, but the most inexperienced person can be taught to make
a dressing.
Nor is this work confined to seniors alone, for students of all classes
have been urged to turn out. Were just an hour a week devoted to this
project by each woman on campus, the amount of work that could be accom-
plished would undoubtedly be commendable. Such a direct aid to winning
the war as this should surely cause every woman student to feel that it is
-her responsibility to help in this work.
The unit will be open again today from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the League.

We do not feel it is an imposition to
entire campus.
