Surgical Dressings
Will Be Made Today
Due to the turnout of 60 persons at
the surgical dressing unit it will be
open again from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. today
in the game room of the League.
The groups which have been espe-
cially invited to attend are the Ann
Arbor coeds, Alpha Phi, Alpha Gam-
ma Delta, and Gamma Pi ZBeta. How-
ever, women in all other groups arei
urged to participate in this work also.
It is hoped by Marcia Zimmerman,
'44, chairman of this project, that
the students' interest continues in
this work, for as it was recently an-
nounced, unless 30 persons turn out
every day the unit is open, it will be
forced to close.

Sports events, games and square
dancing will make up an evening of
recreation, fun and exercise at "Rec-
Rally." Those who come at 8:30 p.m.
will have an hour and a half to de-
vote to playing badminton, mixed
volleyball, ping pong, shuffleboard,
deck tennis, aerial darts and bowling.'
Coeds will have an opportunity to
show what the exercise program has
done for them by challenging the
men to a weight lifting contest.
Barn Dancing Is Planned
Those who attend the basketball,
game the same evening may attend
afterward, as from 10 p.m. to 11:30
p.m. there will be real, true-blue barn
dancing in Waterman gym. "The
square dancing will be led by a com-
petent leader and a small band will
play," says Miss Willcox.
Skirts and sweaters, bluejeans, or
"what-have-you" will be appropriate
for this co-recreational affair, and
those attending may come in couple
or .stag, both men and women.. Tennis
shoes must be worn on the Barbour
gym floor, where badminton and vol-
leyball will be played, but street shoes
will be acceptable for the square dan-
To Invite Soldiers
Members of the WAA Board plan
to act as hostesses to make introduc-
tions among those present, and they
will arrange the various games, also.
Soldiers on campus will receive spe-
cial invitations to attend, and the
whole affair has been arranged to be
one of informality and friendly fun.
There will be a very small admit-
tance charge per person, and al-
though tickets may be purchased at
te door, they are now in the hands
of all members of the WAA Board.

Discussion Held
On War Training
University Women Consider
Industrial, College Problems
"In 1943 there will be no place for
non-producers in the United States,"
William Batt, vice-chairman of the
War Production Board stated last
week at a conference of the Ameri-
can Association of University Women.
Mr. Batt was the first speaker in a
day-long meeting called to discuss the
training and placing of college wom-
en in war industries. He declared that
American college women are not giv-
ing their best to the "job of great
magnitude and tremendous serious-
ness" of winning the war.
Asks Colleges To Help
Dr. W. W. Charters, Director of the
War Manpower Commission's Bureau
of Training, declared that each col-
lege must .consider the needs of its
community and the extent of its fa-
cilities in planning war industrial
training for its women. He said that
such training need not destroy the
"essential' structure" of the curricu-
lum. He announced that industry
would need 4,500,000 new workers
during the- comipg year so that a
woman can find a war job in any
field that she wishes.
After the talks of the two govern-
ment representatives spokesmen for
industry and women's colleges took
over the meeting. Dr. Lillian Gil-
breth of Purdue University suggested
that prompt and coordinated infor-
mation on the . needs of industry
would greatly assist the colleges to
train women efficiently for war posi-
tions. She stated that education in-
creased the capacity for productive
work and that therefore women
should finish their college educations
before entering industry.
Companies Approve Women Workers
"A tendency to break into tears,"
is about the only complaint confer-
ence representatives of the Glenn L.
Martin Plant, Revere Copper and
Brass Company, General Electric,
RCA, and Grumman Aircraft report,
ed concerning their women workers.
In all other respects women have
proved satisfactory in these factories,
they declared.
The delegates showed wide differ-
ences of opinion on the question of
technical vs. general education.
Entries for the WAA Badminton
Club doubles and singles tourna-
ment are due today. All those who
wish to sign up may do so at Bar-
bour gym or by calling Marjorie

art of rushing existed, only in those
days the polite way of getting what
one wanted was expressed by merely
grunting an "ugh" or two. "Ugh"
meant anything and was effective
insofar as it was diplomatically pro-
If Ab, the primitive man, wanted a
mammal of some sort for Sunday
brunch he would bare his teeth be-
guilingly at said mammal and give'
it an "ugh." If Booba, a primitive
man, desired the same mammal, he,
too, would turn on his personality
and whoever succeeded in attracting
the mammal had it for his delicacy,
that is, without too much ado.
From this historical background, it
can easily be seen that the word
"rushing" can be considered as syno-
nymous with the word "diplomacy."
Even today the remnants of prehis-
toric days can be seen in the art of
rushing. We are still smiling beguil-
ingly, trying to attract the "mam-
mals" but the communication system
has improved considerably in the
matter of vocal contact, for the sub-
stitute for "ugh" is "Who do you
