Rnnual Spring Horse Show Is Slated for May 15
Seaman's Story Emphasizes
DRESSING UNIT'S VALUE
IT'S EXTREMELY EASY to convince one's self that one hour spent in
some war activity will add so little to the sum total that it's just not
worth the effort.
E" VERY NOW AND THEN something crops up that forces the realization
of the importance of "that little bit."
Such was the manner in which the vital necessity of the Surgical
Dressing Unit was brought home to one Michigan coed recently, when
she received a letter from a second class seaman of the United States
Navy who is now lying in a Naval Hospital in one of our Eastern states.
This young Navy man, who is recuperating from a seridus operation,
said that he had nothing but paper handkerchiefs to use in place of dress-
ings for over a week. The first two days after his operation he had used up
a week's quota of 4x4 gauze bandages and had not seen any since.
In his own words, the seaman observed, "If there's a scarcity of dress-
ings here, just think what it must be like in the battle zones."
[N SPI'TE OF the danger of being trite or "super-emotional," we are
pointing out that such a case can be the rule, rather than the excep-
tion. This particular case is but one example of situations that are
appearing wherever there are wounded men.
An hour spent by every woman on campus making surgical dressings
would help immeasurably to alleviate such a condition, since the dressings
produced in that time would be sufficient to help some wounded man re-
cover more rapidly..
The campus Surgical Dressings Unit will be open four more days,
only-between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. today and tomorrow of this week and
Thursday and Friday of next week ...
WHAT are Michigan women going to do about it? Are they going to set
aside at least one hour during those four days in which to make surgical
dressings? Or are they going to forget about the whole thing and allow
wounded seamen and soldiers to get along as best they can with makeshift
bandages? 1 --Charlotte Haas and Marjorie Hall

Lanterns to Sing
Since war priorities have caused
a stoppage in the production of pa-
per lanterns such as those tradi-
tionally carried by senior women for
Lantern Night Sing, which will be
held at 7:30 p.m. Monday, only the
leaders of the march to Palmer Field
will carry lanterns, thus preserving
the tradition in spite of the war.
In case of bad weather-meaning
rain-the Sing will be held at 7:30
p.m. in Waterman Gym, and the
march will be dispensed with. In
that case, signs placed about the
floor of the gymnasium will signify
the places where the women partici-
pating in the sing will congregate.
Led by the University band, senior
women, flanked on either side
by underclassmen, will march two
abreast to Palmer Field after lining
up in front of the library at 6:45
p.m. Seniors will wear caps and
gowns; juniors-yellow hair ribbons;
sophomores-red hair ribbons, and
freshmen-green hair ribbons.
Once at Palmer Field, the march-
ers will form an "M" and will sing
"Hail to the Colors" before stepping
into a "V" formation in which posi-
tion they will sing "The Star Span-
gled Banner." The marchers will
then disperse and take their places
behind the signs signifying the vari-
ous houses. All women are invited
to march with their housed whether
or not they are taking part in the

Serve as Mess
Boys on Ship
By The Associated Press
BALBOA, Canal Zone- Three
American women have started their
own campaign to prove that they
are qualified to serve in the United
States Merchant Marine. They have
started on a United Nations ship as
mess attendants and are regular
members of the crew, living in special
quarters with the legend "Three Mess
Boys" over the door.
The trio reached this Pacific port
recently, on the first sea voyage any
of them ever had taken.
Mrs. Ruth Bogard, 25, of San Fran-
cisco, went to sea because "I might
run into my husband some place,"
leaving a job in the Federal Reserve
Bank. Her husband, a gunner's mate
in the Navy, sailed three days after
Mrs. Mary Cotton, 35, also of San
Francisco, bakes for the officers'
mess. Her husband has been miss-
ing in action since May 30, 1942,
when his ship, the Quail, was scuttled
off Cavite. She formerly was a desk
clerk in a San Francisco hotel.
tern Night Sing is headed by Nancy
Hattersley, '44, president of WAA,
and she will be assisted by Mary
Alice Hahn, '45, lantern chairman,
Louise Forbush, '45, line of march,
Barbara Wallace, '45Ed, sing chair-
man, Dorothy DeVries, '44, patrons,
and Marjorie Hall, '45, publicity.
