Passengers Are ,
Wounded Men
CA (Delayed)- ()- The pretty
airline stewardess stopped to ask the
usual question of each passenger
"How are you doing?" But her pas-
sengers this trip were men who had
done their bit-wounded American
soldiers being flown back from the
front to hospitals in the rear.
It is very new, this evacuation of
patients by air transport on a large
scale-a dream in wartime planning
back in the United States is becom-

ing a reality in the African cam-
paign. It means that a soldier can
be got back to a well-equipped sta-
tion hospital for treatment in a few
hours instead of days.
And for this particular U.S. Army
nurse, Lieut. Clara H. Morrey of
Hancock, Mich., it was her first trip
to an advanced air:base to pick up
patients from an evacuation hos-
pital bound for a station hospital
several hundred miles behind the
battle lines.
On this particular 'day she and
eight of the other nurses Were out on
the flying field early in the morning
ready for their assignments. All the
girls have their main headquarters
in a barracks not far from this field,
which is midway between the front
and the hospitals to the rear.
Clara, her blue eyes bright with
excitement, like the other. girls, was
wearing blue slacks, a regulation
nurse's blue shirt, blue sweater and
a small man's sized fleece-lined

~Vomin power Corps q-ars
Congratulations, Encouragement
FEW WEEKS AGO nearly 200 women volunteered their services for the
"womanpower" corps.
The turnout for the "Buildings and Ground" crew, the chief project of
the corps, has been considerable, and for this cooperation coeds are to be
heartily congratulated. They have done a splendid job.
GERALDINE STADELMAN, '44, Personnel Administrator, who's in charge
of the corps, said, "The women who have come out have worked well, but
we still need many more women."
Coeds should not be content to rest on their laurels. There are
only three weeks of the semester remaining, and there is much to be
done in that time. When the weather does not permit work out of
doors, there is cleaning and dusting to be done in Hill Auditorium.
Work will continue straight up until finals but will not continue during
finals. It is imperative that all women who have not donated their services
as"yet do so now.
The University is very much aware of the manpower deficiency, and
this labor shortage is becoming more acute every day. The services of every
coed will be invaluable, and for those services every coed will be paid.

"Fun, Fitness Field Day" yesterday,
Kappa Kappa Gamma, which came
in second, and the third place win-

After the five exercises performed

Mr. Earl Riske-chose the winners
which were announced by Nancy
Hattersly, '44, president of WAA.
Certificates were presented to the
winning sorority, dormitory and
league house zone participants in
the daily exercise drive which started
in the fall and will continue' until
the close of the semester. The stc-
cessful groups were Collegiate Soro-
sis, Helen Newberry Residence and
League House Zone Three.

able turnout for the culmination of
the year's physical fitness activities,
according to the committee in charge
of the program.


With Friday's announcement that
pay checks were ready for girls who
did April's ground crew work, swarms'
of coeds descended upon the sub-
station to reap the fruits of labor.
From all over campus they came,
tripping over one another's shirts,
blocking the lanes of the diagonal,
rocking the ground with their deter-
mined tread, gasping in anticipation.
From all directions they came-from
dormitories, from classes, from
cokes, from beds-there was no
stopping them. The Great Trek was
definitely on!
Easy Does It
Picturethe excitement when, upon
their arrival-bedraggled and out of
breath-they found that there was
no red tape involved, no statements
to sign-no pledges, no oaths. A few
words exchanged, a murmur of
thanks, and the pale green slip was
put, into the trembling hand.
Forgotten the aches and pains, for-
gotten the hot sun, forgotten the
wisecracks of the passers-by-this
was the ultimate glory. The checks
themselves were beautiful to see-a
lovely, cool shade of 'green, soft,
smooth paper-pretty black marks
symbolizing dollars and cents. It was
nothing mercenary, you under.
stand-merely the joy of knowing
where the next coke was coming
from, the exquisite Satisfaction of
one who has not labored in vain. The
tables had turned-now The Univer-
sity was handing out the checks-
"SALARY checks," they said.
No Bo uncers
Then, the mad dash to the cash-
ier's office, to local book stores, to
drug stores, to banks-a dash to any
place that would cash the check. The
University's credit was good-no one
even hesitated about converting the
pale green slips into darker green,
more beautiful slips. Across every
counter in the town the happy trans-
action was made, and the sighs of
contented coeds drowned out the
voices of their professors in the class-
Almgost immediately the dress busi-
ness picked up, the coke business
picked up - everything picked up.
The heavy air lifted, and yesterday
the sun came out. The Michigan
woman was rejuvenated, and the sky
was an unbelievable shade of blue.
'So Shall Ye Reap'
Oh Michigan coeds-wherever you
may be-read this tale of compensa-
tion and mark it as a record of new
glory in the annals of your collec-
tive life. The memories of manual la-
bor - the aching fingers, the bent
backs crying for liniment, the leisure
hours gone-they are as nothing in
the face of this beautiful gesture--

SPARS, WAVES Offer Women
Variety of Jobs, Valuable Training

For the worxan who is tentatively
considering joining the women's
armed forces upon leaving college,
the WAVES and the SPARS offer
many opportunities.
The importance of these services
is well illustrated by a statement by
Frank Knox, Secretary of the Navy.
"This Is total war-a war in which'
every woman as. well as every man
must play a part. The men in the,
Navy and Coast Guard are. in for one
reason alone--o fight!"
"But to. keep them, fighting,: there
are important service jobs, that must
be carried on at .home-man-size,
full-time jobs < which you, the wom-r
en of America, can fill- jobs in
which you can serve your country in
your country and release the men to
fight at sea,"
Will Fill Men's Jobs
Members of the WAVES and
SPARS will be assigned to shore jobs
now filled by men. They will do all
types of office work, and will fill'
jobs in radio, communications, store-
keeping, along with many other,
'Service in the WAVES atid SPARS
offers training in fields seldom ,open
to women- in civilian life, and will
equip them for jobs they will be
qualified to fill after the war, it was
pointed out by the Navy. Three such
types of training are given in the

hospital corps, in radio and in mete-

two .years of training and two years
experience as. clinicaland dental
X.ray technicians. Women will now
be accepted' who have had biology,
chemistry, home economics or related
training, or who' have been dental or
medical assistants or secretaries.
Corps Gets Indoctrination Course
Members of the hospital corps will
take. the basic five-week indoctrina-
tion course at Hunter College,' l. Y.
or Iowa State Teachers College. They
will then be 'sent to naval hospitals
to complete their training.
Training for the Radioman rating
is given at the University of Wiscon-
sin. There is no special requirement;
but teletype operators could qualify.
Radiomen must be able to copy low-
frequency code broadcasts, start,
stop and regulate power, make ad-
justments on Navy radio transmit-
ting and receiving equipment, and
operate receivers and transmitters.
Prior to the war few women were
to be found in the 'field of meteor-
ology or aerography, Is. it is called
-in -lte,Navy. Aerographers must un-
derstand the, principles of meteorol-
ogy, have a general knowledge' of
weather codes and drawings, be able
to read meteorological instruments
and make routine observations.
