Coming Events

Detroiters To
Aid in Annual
Tag Day Drive
Committee Will Work
With Faculty, Students
For Fresh Air Camp
Eleven well - known businessmen
and judges of Detroit have formed
a committee to work with the Uni-
versity faculty and student group in
securing money to keep the Fresh
Air Camp open again this summer,
Prof. F. N. Menefee, director, said
Since most of the finances are
raised by contributions from students
and faculty members in the annual
Tag Day drive, we will hold our
twenty-third Tag Day this Friday,
Prof. Menefee pointed out.
However, individual contributions
do play an important part in keeping
the camp open, he added. For this
reason we have committees such as
this Detroit group organized by men
and women among thehbusiness and
professional groups who are inter-
ested in the project.
Among the members of the Detroit
committee are Henry M. Butzel, Su-
preme Court justice of Michigan, J.
Thomas Dasef, attorney, Ralph Ern-
est, consulting engineer, D. M. Ferry,
Jr. of the Ferry SeedhCo., F. S. Ford,
vice-president of a chemical corpor-
ation, Edwin S. George, D. J. Healy,
probate judge, J. Fred Lawton, in-
surance, Walter C. Russell, president
of a cement corporation, Wells Utley,
president of Detroit Steel Castings,
and Henry Hulbert of the National
Bank of Detroit.
This year's goal for the University
drive is $1,500. Twenty-five campus
and downtown posts will be open
from 8 a.m. till 4 p.m. Friday to re-
ceive contributions. Chairmen for
the drive -are Pete Wingate, '43, and
Helen Kressbach '44.
United, Jewish
- S
Appeal Drive:,,
Seeks $1,000
Moving into the second day of a
ten day campaign, local workers for
the United Jewish Appeal drive are
striving to meet their campus goal
of $1,000.
The local drive is part of a nation-
wide campaign to raise twenty-five
million dollars for the aid of refu-
gees' in occupied countries and for
the resettlement of those who have
escaped to America. A portion of
the funds will be delegated to the
rehabilitation of Palestine.
Herb Levin, '43Med, is directing
the University drive which will last
until next Wednesday. Captains have
been assigned to the Kappa Nu, Pi
Lambda Phi, Phi Sigma Delta, Sigma
Alpha 14u, and Zeta Beta Tau fra-
ternities; the Alpha Epsilon Phi sor-
ority and various league houses and
dormitories to urge and receive con-
Speakers are visiting these organi-
zations to explain the functions and
values of the drive. Contributions
may be made either to the individual
captains or in the Hillel Foundation.

ies to be presented at 8 p.m. tomor-
row in the Hillel Foundation.

nent obstetrician and gynecologist.

Vice-President Wallace report-
ed today that leaders of the seven

ments of food from the United

Students Missing First
Exams Are Eligible
For persons who missed the all-
campus aptitude examination given
two weeks ago, the test will be re-
peated at 7 p.m. Thursday in the

This move comes as a result of a
number of student requests that the

ior who did not take the first exam-

No person without an admission

tary services of civilian pursuits.

ed friends. of Jewish students at 9

Neighborhood War Clubs, organ-
ized at the instigation of the Civilian
Defense Volunteer Office to dissem-
inate necessary home front informa-
tion to all citizens, are now 6 months
old, Mrs. Charles A. Fisher, Director,
announced today.
"The - various government pro-
grams are often confusing," Mrs.
Fisher said, "from their sheer quan-
tity and detail, providing one of the
greatest challenges democratic edu-
cation has ever faced. This chal-

Invitations for
Serenade Are
Sent to Houses
Invitations to the All-Campus Ser-
enade to be presented by the Varsity
Men's Glee Club at 8:30 p.tn. Thurs-
day on the library steps have been
sent to all fraternities, sororities and
dormitories on campus, James Fred-
erickson, '44, publicity manager, said
The event, which, Frederickson
said, will be "the last chance for the
students and the glee club to get
together and sing Michigan songs'"
will be electrically lighted, but it has
been impossible to supply bleachers
this year.
In addition to the special numbers
performed by the glee club, there
will be a great deal of group singing.
Some of the songs in which the aud-
ience will participate are "When
Night Falls, Dear," "The Bum Army,"
and "Michigan Men." The program
will close with the singing of "The
Yellow and Blue.' Ten members of
the glee club will be scattered
throughout the audience to lead the
The Christmas sing on the library
steps was the last formal appearance
of the Varsity Men's Glee Club,
which has been handicapped by a
shortage of members this year. How-
ever, in spite of the fact that the
chorus has dwindled, the singers have
managed to give about a serenade a
month at the various dormitories and
sorority houses.
The All-Campus Serenade is being
given in place of the Varsity Men's
Glee Club's annual spring concert in
Hill Auditorium. Faculty, students
and townspeople are cordially invit-
ed, Frederickson said.

eral instructions and data for their
The work of the organization be-
gan with the Nutrition committee,
whose members gave lectures ex-
plaining the Share-the-Meat drive
and distributed pamphlets telling ,
"99 Ways to Share the Meat."
The clubs also assisted in the Vic-
tory Book Drive and members col-
lected 2,000 books and 728 magazines.
Members cooperated with the schools
in registering for War Ration Book
No. 1. and worked in stores explain-
ing the point ration system to cus-
tomers. During the Red Cross drive
177 block leaders canvassed their'
blocks for contributions.
Recently the clubs have made a
housing survey in which facilities
for approximately 900 war workers
were located. Some members have
taken school children to their homes
for lunch to relieve the burden on
the schools. In addition the clubs
have assisted the Salvage Commit-
tee, the Transportation Committee,
the Victory Garden Committee and
have assisted playground supervisors
in day nursery schools. The next
undertaking of the clubs will be the
distribution of printed matter for
the Cancer Research Committee.
In order to keep the citizens in-
formed, the Neighborhood War Clubs
have been publishing a monthly bul-
letin called "Home Front Cues"
which contains information on such
things as salvage, rationing, victory
gardens and nutrition.
The greatest problem which the
clubs have had to face, Mrs. Fisher
said, is one of organization. The
original organization plans were built
on the block plan- already set up for
air raid wardens.
U High School To
1old Band Carnival
As a grand finale to the war bond
drive which in the past school year
has netted about $6,000 in stamps
and bonds, the University High
School is planning a bond carnival
which will last from 7:30 to 10 p.m.
today in the Ann Arbor High School.
Home rooms and certain organiza-
tions such as the French Club and
the Girls Athletic Association will
sponsor booths which will operate
shooting ranges, fish ponds, and
other typical features of a carnival.
At 9 p.m. the carnival will wind
up in the school assembly where skits
will be presented and an auction will
be held.
