Use of Stringed Instruments
Jan Savitt, well known for the use
of strings in his orchestra, has been
selected as the band to play for Slide
Rule Ball, which will be held March
12 in the Union Ballroom, it was dis-
closed last night by Herb Heavenrich,
'44E, publicity chairman.
The decorations for the dance were
also made known, and will be based
on a St. Patrick's Day theme. The ef-
feet will be rendered largely with
lights. although no detailed plans
have been made. However, the Slide

place in the decorations, it was stated
by Ken Moehl, '43, decorations chair-
Jan Savitt and his band appeared
here two years ago when he played in
a swing concert which was held at
the' field house.
Strings Used Extensively
Violins are not the only stringed
instruments employed in this band,
but a viola and cello are included as
well. This string section is reported
to be ahead of all other bands in
original and effective arrangements,
for it was one of the first to use
strings in a swing band. Since then
such bands as Tommy Dorsey, Harry
James, and Benny Goodman have
followed suit and incorporated stringst
in their bands also.
Born in Russia, Jan Savitt, came to
America at an .early age and led aj
small studio band in Philadelphia
known as the "Top Hatters." He also
played as first violinist in the Phila-
delphia orchestra under the direction1
of Leopold Stokowski.1
Broadcast for Many Years,
For a number of years he broadcast
from station KYW, and later startedl
touring. He has appeared at numerous
famed theatres, such as the Strand
in New York, and others.
Jan Savitt is also known as the
originator of "Shuffle Rhythm." Sev-t
eral members of his band are also wellt
known instrumentalists. Ted Klages

sophistication" and really relax at ar

Bunny Crawford there is going to be
lots of rug-cutting by the "jive-boys
and hep-cats" on campus.
Bill Sawyer, the boys in the bnd,
and even Gwen Cooper will be wear-
ing sweaters or sport clothes, anc
those who plan to attend must wear
sporty sweater garb to be admitted.
One of the big events of the eve-
ning will be a sweater girl contest,
with prizes for the winners. This "spe-
cial feature" will be judged by the
B.M.O.C.'s and B.W.O.C.'s at the

Fai Sex Serves Profs in Union

As Coeds Invade University Club

Rolling surgical dressings in the Game Room of the League are
(from left to right) Judy Morrill, '43, Mary Keppel, '44, and Virginia
Stoves. The headdress they are wearing is to protect the dressings from
loose hair, and because of chipping, nail polish is taboo. The gauze is
folded following a cardboard pattern and the dressings are called four
by fours, because they measure exactly four inches square. Loose threads
must be avoided because of the possibility of their irritating a wound.
Thy are inspected twice for exactness to prevent their ruffling in

Six Special Houses
Are Invited to Unit
Work in the surgical dressing unit
will be continued this week at 1 p.m.
tomorrow in the game room of the
League, and the unit will be open
until 5 p.m., as usual. The unit will
also be open during these same hours
on Friday.
The houses that are especially in-
vited tomorrow include Alpha Epsi-
lon Phi, Madison House, Alpha Chi
Omega, Mosher Hall and Alpha Omi-
cron Pi. That house which had the
highest percentage of its members
represented at the unit last week will
be announced in tomorrow's Daily.
Marjorie Storkan, '43, chairman of
the project, reported that the turn-1
out last week was very good.

Soph Committee
Apoints 'Three
Announcement of the three addi-
tions to the central committee of
sophomore project was made last
night and revealed Bette Willemin,
'45, Ruth Caryl, '45, and Pat Coulter,
'45, to be the new members of the
These three women are all members
of the soph project honor roll, which
means that they have a 100 per cent
attendance record for their hospital
volunteer work.
Ruth Caryl is affiliated witli Kappa
Alpha Theta and is from Oak Park,
Ill. Pat Coulter is frGm Grosse Pointe,
president of Crop and Saddle, and
vice-president of Mosher Hall. Bette
Willemin's home is here in Ann Arbor.

Ann MacMillan, '44, is in charge of
the new League project which not
only has recruited women for the
University Club; but has relieved the
lack of help in the main dining room
and the general cafeteria as well.
Most enthusiastic about their work
seem to be the waitresses in the Uni-
versity Club. The professors are very
friendly and they enjoy the atmos-
phere a great deal.
When luncheon is over the girls
clear the tables and find it most
amusing to decipher the doodling
which is invariably found on the lun-
cheon mats.
The addition of women to that
club seems to have worked out most
successfully. Perhaps the only calam-
ity which has occurred by the addi-
tion of women, is the case when one
flustered coed, seeing her Ec. 52 pro-
fessor standing in line, who inciden-
tally was flunking her, made such a
valiant attempt to appear efficient,
that she poured soup into a dinner
plate and showered several bystand-
ers with hot liquid.
Waitresses in the main dining room
and cafeteria also enjoy their work.
All strenuous jobs, such as carrying
heavy trays, are done exclusively by
the boys. Marjorie Rutherford, '44,
received the thrill of her life last week
when she served lunch to Jascha Hei-
Approximately 25 women have en-
rolled in this sort of work. Ten of
them are Alpha Phi's who find that
the hour and half they work every
day is practically equivalent to the
time that is required for them to walk
home for lunch and return to campus.
The most practical training they
have received from this work is be-
lieved by Miss MacMillan to be the
experience with food. They learn to
judge quantities which are needed to

accommodate large numbers. In ad-
dition they have first-hand experi-
ence with dietetics.
Engagements Told
Mr. and Mrs. Clarence W. Tread-
well of Grosse Pointe, announce the
engagement of their daughter, Doro-
thy, '44, to Mr. Robert Barrie Marr,
son of Mr. and Mrs. Maurice S. Marr,
of Grosse Pointe.
Miss Treadwell is a member of Chi
Omega. Mr. Marr, '43, formerly at-
tended Kenyon College, where he was
affiliated with Sigma Pi fraternity.
Mr. and Mrs. R. J. Kaltner of South
Bend, Ind. announce the engagement
of their daughter, Muriel, '43, to John
Edward King, '43, son of Mr. and Mrs.
J. E. King, also of South Bend.
