Nurses Launch
Biggest Drive
For Students
All Expenses for Four Months
Paid by Federal Funds; Musi
Pass College Entrance Exams
DETROIT- OP)- Characterizing
their jobs as "war work with a fu-
ture" Michigan nurses are launching
their biggest campaign yet to recruit
new students.
With a nursing sortage already on
hand and 1,164 additional nurses
scheduled to leave Michigan for the
armed forces in 1943, talk is heard
of speeding up former by inflexible
nursing curricula.
Already radical changes in train-
ing have occurred. Right now two
groups of probationers (beginning
nurses) are attending classes at
Michigan and Wayne Universities,
wearing sweaters and . skirts rather
than stiffly starched uniforms.
These girls are getting an intensi-
fied scientific training away from
hospital routine because of the short-
age of instructors in various nursing
schools, according to Miss Thelma I.
Scratch, executive secretary of the
Michigan Nursing Council for War
Service. During the four month
course at the two universities, all ex-
penses for the students are paid from
federal funds. At the end of this
time they return to their home hos-
Among the31 girls now attending
Wayne are students from hospitals
in Jackson, Grand Rapids, Traverse
City, Battle Creek, Lansing, Benton
Harbor and Detroit.
Girls between 17V2 and 35 years
old who can pass university entrance
requirements are eligible to apply for
the pre - clinical course, through
schools of nursing.

Despite War
LONDON- (IP)- In homemade
gowns and minus silk stockings, 200
British debutantes celebrated the
biggest social event of their lives last
Wdek-war or no war. They attend-
ed the annual Queen Charlotte's
birthday ball, London's offIcial com-
ing-out party, at a fashionable hotel,
and-it being wartime, the only one
the girls will have.
Although they are members of
some of Britain's wealthiest and aris-
tocratic families, many wore rayon
and cotton stockings, because silk
virttally is unobtainable in Great
Britain now.
Some admitted they had made
their white ball gowns themselves.
Their escorts all were in uniform.
Food 'rationing drastically cur-
tailed what would have normally
been a banqut. Britain's wartie
regulations pe rmit only a three
course meal costing about $1. The
traditional Queen Charlotte's birth-
day cake was made of dark flour and
contained very little sugar.
The ball is a charity affair given
annually for Queen Charlotte's ma-
ternity hospital.
At an emergency meeting of the
Union Executive Council, it was

ruled that roller skating would
not be permitted at the Don't Give
A Darn Dance, to be held from
9 p.m. to midnight Friday in the
Union Ballroom. At the same
meeting it was decided that bicy-
cle riding would be allowed.

During the 80-hour course which
was devoted to six weeks of class
work and three 'weeks of hospital
work, the girls were taught how to
help the nurses in various tasks.
They are now recognized as being

It is the general consensus of
opinion, in the foolish world outside
Ann Arbor, that college students
have no troubles. Our elders have
the idea that university life is just
one great big academic fling-they
have visions of beer brawls and dice-
rolling and gala bridge parties at two
in the morning. Our non-collegiate
friends picture us strolling blithely
across a sun-kissed campus, arm in
arm with our professors, sipping
Magazines play us up* big, with
coats thrown casually over shoulders
and tic-tac-toe affairs on every
blackboard. "You haven't a worry
in the world," people seem to say as
they see us in railway stations. That's
the sort of thing we get all the time.
Well, the horrible truth is that we've
got plenty of troubles.-We got prob-
lens! No one seems to realize it but
we have.
For instance-one of our friends is
a chem major. Anyhow, it seems
that, according to chemical authori-
ties, there- are six kinds of solid ice-
"solid ice one," "solid ice two," "solid
ice three," "solid ice five," "solid ice
six," and "solid ice seven." Now this
poor girl has been running around,
for months trying to find out what
ever happened to "solid ice four."
Do you think anyone can tell her-
any professor or instructor or grad
student that happens to be standing
around? Not on your life-all they
can manage to say is, "Very little is
known about 'solid ice four'," That's.
a big help when she's been tearing
her hair out all semester over this
solid ice business.
That girl'slife is being ruined. She
can't drink cokes anymore. - We
tried to help her.-We went around
saying to ourselves, "Now if you were

'solid ice four' where would you go?"
But we didn't know. That's the whole
trouble with "solid ice four"-you
never know what it's going to do
Anyway, there's a real problem-a
perfectly good chem major going to
pieces just because there's no one in
this whole big University-,not a
blessed soul, chemical or otherwise-
who knows what happened to "solid
ice four."
Ortake the problem of another of
our friends. She's a phys ed major.
It seems that for some obscure rea-
son phys ed majors have to keep
scrapbooks. "Well, the scrapbook's
fine," they keep telling her, "but you
haven't got enough pictures of chil-
dren playing."
Picture that girl dashing madly
about, looking for pictures of chil-
dren playing.-There 'aren't any, you
know. The magazines decided that
this year they 'were going to stop
printing pictures of children playing.
So if you happen to have any old
children lying around and you think
you could get them to play long
enough to have their pictures taken,
please let us know. We'd certainly
like to do something for this girl,
and we honestly don't know what's
happened to children lately.
Of course, we've only given a cou-
ple of examples, but they're rather
typical of the Problems of college
students. This baloney that some-
one has been feeding the world in
general about "the best years of our
life" is poisonous stuff. Furthermore,
when students start lolling on the
lawns and looking like advertise-
ments for summer resorts, we want
to know about it. Meanwhile we
wish someone would set the public
