Information
To Be Given
.At War Center
Ensign Shea Plans To Answer
Questions Concerning Waves
Ensign Helen Shea, WAVE recruit-
ing officer from the Detroit area, will
give information on the requirements
of the WAVES from 10 a.m. to noon
and from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., Feb. 18 and
19 in the War Information Center in
the League.1
All interested students are invitedI
to meet Ensign Shea at that time
and ask any questions they may have
concerning the WAVES. Questions
concerning training, possibilities for
advancement, uses of previous train-
ing, physical requirements and so
forth will be answered.
WAVE recruits must be between
the ages of 20 and 36 for non-commis-
sioned officers and between 20 and
50 for commissioned officers. WAVES
are enlisted 'for the duration plus six
months and will be assigned to shore
duty only, replacing the men wherever
possible. They will be under the com-
mand of WAVE officers throughout
their period of service.
Women may enlist either as "yeo-
..en" or as "apprentice seamen." Yeo-
men will receive four months training
which will consist of classroom work,
drill, sports and recreation, after
which they will be assigned to active
duty at some Naval or Air base de-
pending upon their training.
Apprentice seamen will receive one
month's training after which some
will be appointed "reserve midship-
men." They will be given a three
months communications course and
will then be awarded commissions and
assigned to active duty. The rest will
be appointed "probationary officers"
and will receive an additional month's
training, after which the-y will receive
commissions and be assigned to active
duty.
Officer candidates are trained at
Smith College, Northampton, Mass.
and at Mt. Holyoke at Holyoke, Mass.

Sign of Spring

Dressing Unit .Women in Ordnance

; .
As an optimistic note that spring
is not too remote, a silk afternoon
dress like the one pictured above is
a lively addition to any wardrobe.
It can be worn for all dress-up
occasions and the wearer will al-
ways be properly and charmingly
turned out. The slight draping in
front is very slenderizing and is
the only unusual thing about an
otherwise effectively simple pat-
tern.
Accessories are very important
to an outfit like this and must be
chosen with care. Long gloves are
both daring and attractive whether
in contrast to, or blending in, with
the colors in the print.
The ample bag, in fabric to match
the gloves, shoes and perky hat,
will complete the simple, yet dressy
ensemble.4
Prof. William McLaughlin will give
the fifth of a series of French lectures
sponsored by the Cercle Francais at
4:15 p.m. today at Alumni Memorial
Hall.
All persons interested in taking
part in League activities can have
their eligibility cards signed from
3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. every day
this week and next week in the
League.

Minimum of Thirty Persons
Must Attend Project at League
The surgical dressing unit will be
open tomorrow from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
in the game room of the League, and
unless a minimum of 30 persons turn
out each day the unit is open it will
have to be closed, the committee an-
nounced yesterday.
An estimated 75 students volun-
teered their services at the unit last,
Friday. According to the central com-
mittee the Michigan women are to
be commended on this number of par-
ticipants, as well as the amount of
work accomplished. The Chi Omega
sorority had the largest percentage of
women represented at the unit last
week.
The Alumnae House, Adelia Chee-=
ver, Sorosis, and Pi Beta Phi have
been especially invited tomorrow,
while the Ann Arbor girls, Alpha Phi,
Alpha Gamma Delta, and Gamma Phi
Beta have been issued special invita.
tions for Friday.

A group of women with "real effi-
ciency", according to Col. Henry Mil-
ler, general administrator of the
Army Ordnance courses in the engi-
neering school, will be graduated in
the twelfth inspectors class and the
second group trained in aircraft on
Feb. 26.
The graduates of the inspectors
class will have completed a ten-week
course in nine subjects, including
drafting, math, chemistry of materi-
als, physics of materials, shop proc-
esses, and production methods. After
graduation, members of the class will
work for the government inspecting
components of any type of fighting
equipment.
To Inspect Radios
Recently a number of women in
the inspector's course were trained to
inspect radios. The tudents, at pres-J
ent mostly women, receive such thor-
ough training here that they are in'
great demand in industry. Seven or
eight hundred have already graduated

P~u1preienii W/AA ntfi C
Hearing is believing! If you think that the sportswoman is a thing of
4he past, we will proceed here to try to change your mind. They say that
the things that you are searching for are often overlooked because they're
too near at hand.
Well, we just found out a second ago that one of our new tryouts on
the Women's staff and an assistant on the WAA beat, is truly enthusiastic
about sports. Margaret Whiteley, '45, a transfer from Baker University,
Baldwin, Kansas, has been in AA just a week, and already knows more
about the Michigan WAA than plenty of women who are finishing their
fourth year here.
Tuesday, Margaret went over to the Health Service and found out where
she could get in some athletic activity. She was already familiar with the
Women's Athletic Association, since she was captain of a basketball team,
and athletic manager for her sorority, Zeta Tau Alpha, at Baker. She
promptly joined a class in modern dance and one in basketball, for which
she receives no credit.
Margaret, who claims she's not a redhead, is known as "Red", "Peggy",
and even "Maggie", although she doesn't particularly like the last name
mentioned. Her favorite sport is swimming, but she goes in for field hockey,
volleyball, tennis, table tennis, aerial darts, bowling, and riding. She says
"it's a means of self-expression for me along with poetry," which she has
written since she was seven years old.
Next ones on her list to learn are badminton and fencing. Margaret
says she's never won any medals for sports, but plays a much better game
when she has stiff competition. Her main ambition' is to play tennis well
enough to receive an invitation for a set from her older brother. She's major-
ing in psychology, however, although Peg wants to do community recrea-
tion work.
Have I convinced you, and are you surprised? Bet you would be even
more surprised if you had the oportunity to count the number of Margaret
Whiteleys on this campus. There is an amazingly large group of women who,
while concentrating on getting their edt cation, still find time to enjoy phys-
ical education work.
How's your bowling form? Do you start your walk on the right foot
and does that unwanted curve cramp your style? Let the instructors at the
WAB bowling alleys, which have been reopened this semester, give you
some pointers. Bring the one and only along if you like. The alleys are
open from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. every day of the week,
except Saturdays and Sundays. On Saturdays, they are available from 1
p.m. to 6 p.m.
By now you probably know what's cooking with the Figure Skating
Club. The big event-Carnival International-will be presented at 8 p.m.
Sunday, Feb. 28, at the Coliseum. The WAA group has a sailor number on
the fire, and Nan Upson will be the soloist. Don't forget that residence
houses may reserve a block of seats for the affair-if they buy 25 or more
seats.
Dance Club has a double-feature offer. It seems that members of the
club who need phys ed credit may receive it by attending club meetings
regularly. The definition of regularly is twice a week, at 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays
and Thursdays at Barbour.
Margy Giefel announces that those interested in the second indoor
season tournament in badminton are to sign up on the bulletin board in
Barbour gym immediately.
Good riders and mediocre riders, attention please! Tryouts for Crop
and Saddle will be held Tuesday, March 2, so get prepared. Those who don't
make this club will be eligible for the University Women's Riding group.
All for now.

and have been placed as inspectors.
Requirements for the course are a
high school education and the age
range is from nineteen to sixty-five.
Members of the course range from
high school graduates to holders of
the master's degree. Many of the
women have enrolled for the course
because they want to DO something
really constructive in war production.
Program Strenuous
The program, arranged by Prof. O.
W. Boston, administrator in charge
of instruction, 'is strenuous, but the
women have proved that they can
stand up under the all-day schedule.
Four ordinance classes are going on
at once, and a new one enters every
five weeks. The fourteenth class for
inspectors and the fourth aircraft
course will begin March 1.
The important job of inspecting
was first carried on by men, but they
were drafted into the army almost as
soon as they graduated. For the first
five classes after the school started
on Jan. 19, 1942, only men were en-
rolled. Then women were admitted
and proved that they could stand up
under the concentrated regime.
Lady Marines'
ToLDon Scarlet
WASHINGTON.- ()- Yep, the
lady Marines are going to wear that
tcuch of scarlet which made the mas-
culine Marines so irresistible to them
before they joined up themselves.
It won't be a stripe down the trou-
sers, of course, but the Marines of
the women's reserve will have a scar-
let mnuffler and scarlet chinstrap on
the visor of the cap to add that cer-
tain something.
The uniform itself is forest green
and strictly tailored with a hip-length
unfitted coat, straight skirt and
matching topcoat. Shoes, shoulder-
strap purse and gloves are of Army
brown, the dress shoes a pump model
with a flat bow on the vamp.
Maj. Ruth Cheney Streeter, who
left a home in Morristown, N.J.,
which she said "will run itself" to
head the corps, turned up in the uni-
form for the first time today at a
press conference. She thinks she's
joined "a jolly outfit," she said, but
a fighting and working one, and she
intends to supply the fighting corps
with women to do the work at home.
Smiling but determined, Maj. Stree-
ter announced she would set out
Tuesday on a several weks' nationwide
tour of Marine posts and recruiting
offices. Her first stop will be New
York, then Pittsburgh and westward
to the Pacific coast and return by the
southern route.
She expects to recruit the quota of
18,000 enlisted women and 1,000 offi-
cers in double time.
