WAA To Hold,
Field Day for
East Quad Soldiers
To Enter in Sports at
Palmer Field Sunday
Instituting a different type of en-
tertainment for soldiers, the Wom-
en's Athletic Association will hold a
"Serviceman's Field Day" for all en-
listed men stationed on campus from
3-6 p.m. tomorrow at Palmer Field.
Under the direction of Nancy Hat-
tersley, '44, WAA president, enter-
tainment will be provided for the sol-
diers in the form of tennis, archery,
badminton, baseball, and golf-putt-
The field day originated when
servicemen asked for the use of the
athletic equipment at Palmer Field
and the Women's Athletic Building.
The WAA is furnishing all the equip-
ment for the use of the soldiers.
The five sports which will be fea-
tured are under the direction of the
WAA sports managers. Allyn Thomp-
son, '46, is in charge of archery,
Madeline Vibbert, '44, badminton,
Barbara Wallace, '45, golf, Betsey
Parry, '46, tennis, and Barbara Bath-
ke, '45, baseball.
Under the sports managers, com-
mittees of girls are being organized
as hostesses to play with the soldiers
in each sport. Any serviceman sta-
tioned on campus is invited to at-
tend, and all University women are
In case of rain, an alternate pro-
gram is planned, so that the field
day will not be called. Bridge, ar-
chery,"ping-pong, bowling and other
indoor games will be featured in the
Women's Athletic Building if the
weather prohibits using Palmer Field.
As a continuation of its successful,
"Know Your Money" campaign,
against the passing of counterfeit
money, the United States Secret
Service is launching a new program
against bad checks, with the slogan
"Know Your Endorsers."
The business of "checking checks"
comes under the heading of helping
morale on the home front, according
to George F. Boos, Supervising Agent
of the Secret Service in Detroit.
Government and industry are pay-
ing out checks this year in unprece-
dented volume, making possible an
enormous check-stealing crime wave,
if people who receive checks, and
merchants and banks that cash
them do not take proper precautions.
A merchant cashing a customer's
check should always know how to
find the endorser if the check
"bounces." A person cashing a check
should not endorse it until he is
ready to receive payment, and
should have proper identification
with him-preferably something with
his signature on it.
