To Make Aptitude Examination
Tabulations Accurate, Useful
All coeds who fail to take the apti-
tude tests on Tuesday, April 13 will
be reported to the Office of the Dean
of Women and the individual record
of each University woman will be so
marked, Dean Alice Lloyd said yester-
"This is the first thing in which all
University women have been asked to
cooperate and the results are not too
encouraging," Monna Heath, '44, new
head of the Women's War Council
said yesterday." We want every girl
to participate because the only accur-
ate tabulation will be one in which
every person is represented.
"We have received a little over a
thousand applications but there are
still over 400 to come in. Tomorrow
is the deadline and after that no
woman who has not handed in her
application card can take the test.
"Six league houses have not picked
up their material as they have been

Coed War Work'
Report Is Given
A total of 2,349 women out of the
3,582 on campus under the direction
of the Women's Planning Commission
participated in the war effort during
this school year, according to recent
figures published by the League.
Though these statistics are by no
means final, and do not include those
women who have worked for Red
Cross, the figure is still not greatly
changed when duplications in project
personnel is considered. That is,
many participants were counted twice
because they engaged in several activ-
Blood donors, Junior project, phys-
ical education teachers for volunteer
exercises, Sophomore Hospital Ser-
vice and Freshman Project are among
those activities with the greatest
number participating.
Money contributions reached $,-
795.97 for Bomber Scholarship, while
the Red Cross received $2,566.48, In
one night the girls participating in
Junior Project Skit at the Ann Arbor
Eagles Club sold $3,402 worth of
stamps and bonds. The total sales
reached $4,892, with $1,673 worth to
be sold before compencement.
Total contributions by all the cam-
pus organizations are so far $5,566.88,
excluding the stamp sales, and this
does not include all the recreationI
facilities for soldiers and war hospi-
tals that sororities and dormitoriesI
and other individual organizationsI
have given.

Army, Navy To Give Intensive
Japanese Course to Women
Both the Navy and the Army are
now interested in obtaining women'
for intensive training in the Japanese
language, according to information
received recently by Dr. Burton Thu-
ma, armed services representative of
the University.
The Navy's special course which
is given at the University of Colorado,
Boulder, Colo,, was previously limited
to men, but it has now been opened
to women, reported Dr, Thuma. Ap-
plication blanks may be obtained
from Prof. Joseph K. Yamagiwa, in
Room 13 Angell Hall, or from the War
Information Center in the League.
The training program in Japanese
which is given by the Army Signal
Corps has also been opened to women I
although application blanks are not
yet available. Dr. Thuma said he did
not know the full details regardingj
the program at present. However,
interested persons may consult Prof.
Yamagiwa or write, to Col. Harold
Doud, Office of Chief Signal Officer,
War Department, Washington, D.C.
Applicants for the Navy course
should be between the ages of 19,
and 30 and should have completed a,
minimum of three years of college.
A college degree with Phi Beta Kappa.
or at least six months previous study.
in Chinese or Japanese is required.
The Navy course will last for one
year. Suitable candidates will be en-
rolled in a civilian capacity under a
contract which will provide for pay at
the rate of $150 per month, out of
which the student is expected to pay
for room, board and medical expenses.
The women students under this
program will apply for a commission
in the WAVES. Those commissioned.

War Council To Hold,
Interviewing Friday

JQP Petitioning
For Next Year
To Commence
Petitioning for positions on the
central committee of Junior Girls
Project for next year will begin today
and continue until 5 p.m. Monday, it
was announced yesterday by Ann
MacMillan, '44.
Women are requested to sign up
for interviews on the bulletin board
in the Undergraduate Office in the
League when they turn in their peti-
tions. Interviewing will take place
from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday
through Friday.
The purpose o starting the peti-
tioning early, said Miss MacMillan,
is to aid the current United States
Treasury Department drive to double
the amount of stamps and bonds sold
during the month of April all over
the country. It is also to relieve the
junior women who have recently tak-
en other positions.
Eleven positions will be open. They
are general chairman, assistant chair-'
man, secretary, treasurer, publicity
chairman. Women will also be cho-
sen to takge charge of sororities, league
houses and dormitories. The remain-
ing positions which will be open will'
be chairman of booths, corsage com-
mittee chairman, chairman of skits
and songs.

"I am greatly impressed with the
voluntary work service being put forth
by members of the Women's Athletic
Association and students in the Phys-
ical Education classes," said Dr. Mar-
garet Bell, in an interview yesterday.
"Their work, which is directly war
work in several respects, has been
most encouraging to me," she con-
tinued. "Not only does it show an
interest in the upkeep of the WAB
in order to help keep down great de-
preciation during the war, but this
work is valuable in that it produces
strength in the individual and teach-
es leadership. It is a truly demo-
cratic effort, and at the same time
that it teaches something about the
job, it renders appreciation of the'
work formerly done by others on the
88 Student Nurses
Receive Their Caps
In Annual Ceremony
Eighty-eight student nurses were
given caps recently, signifying that
they had successfully completed the-
six months probationary period, and'
were now accepted to go on With their
The annual capping ceremony was
held in the assembly room of Couzens
Hall and was attended by parents and
guests of the honored girls. Candle-

Father McPhillips and Miss Read-
ing addressed the students, and the
Choral Club sang two selections.
Following the ceremony, a recep-
tion was held in the parlors. The Jun-
iors, as big sisters, acted as hostesses
and served. Helen Culley, president
of the Junior Class and Jean Olson,
secretary, poured.
The "capped" student nurses, while
continuing their studying, will now
work on eight hour duty at the hos-

buildings and grounds around the
Work to which Dr. Bell is referring
began when the WAA Board members
took over the complete operation of
the WAB bowling alleys four weeks
ago. Student members of the Board
acted as pin boys and managers of
the alleys six days a week, evenings
included. They kept the alleys cleaned
and polished and kept accurate ac-
counts of the business end of the
Without their "free and voluntary"
service it would have been absolutely
necessary to close the alleys, and
therefore, deprive women students of
the exceptionally low bowling rates
formerly afforded. However, not only
did their work make it possible to
keep the alleys open,'but'a small op-
erating profit has been gained.
Not only has the labor shortage
been felt in such jobs as those of pin
boys, but in every labor service on
campus. Relieving the Buildings and
Grounds committee of some of that
squeeze, plans have been made for
the old WAA Board and the new one
to spend "a spring work week-end,
April 17, together at the WAB, and
wash the walls of the Lounge and the
council room. '
Alleviation of the manpower short-
age is indicated by the complete work
of the regular tennis classes in the
Physical Education department. The
students raked, scraped, soaked, filled,
rolled,' and plan to lihe the courts,

pressed a desire to cut the grass on
Palmer Field, and that men inPEM
classes have volunteered their ser-
vices in heavy work. She concluded
by pointing out that this type of work
is especially exemplified in that vol-
untary effort being. put forth by 12
men and women in doing the "dirty
work" at the University Health Ser-
vice, and that as the shortage gets
increasingly serious students may find
it necessary to take up other similar
