Seven Sports
To Make Rally*
Lively Affair
Square-Dancing Will Climax
Evening of Varied Activities;
Campus Soldiers Are Invited
Try your hand at a badminton
slam at 8:30 p.m. Saturday at Bar-
bour gym, where Rec-Rally, which
promises to be the liveliest affair of
the season, will be in session.
Seven sports will be in action at
the same time, and those attending,
may take in just as many as they
have time for or have the energy for.
Mixed volleyball, ping pong, shuffle-
board, deck tennis, aerial darts, and.
bowling games will be set up and,
rurr by members of the WAA Board.
To Be Informal
Sport play will continue until 10
p.m., when a huge square dance will
be sponsored in Waterman gym. Mr.,
Howard Leibee, of the Physical Edu-
cation department for men will act
as caller, and a small band will play
for the dancing.
Anything from shirts to slacks will
be appropriate dress for this affair.
Men and women, stag or by couple,
are invited to attend, and all soldiers
on campus have received a special in-
vitation. Tennis shoes must be worn
on the Barbour gym floor, where
badminton and volleyball will be
played, but street shoes will be ac-
ceptable for the square dancing.
Tickets at Door
Since the WAA recently put its
entire savings for the future women's
swimming pool into War Bonds, there
will be a very small admittance
charge for this affair. Tickets may
be purchased at the door, or from
any member of the WAA Board.
Committee planning for "Rec-Ral-
ly" is headed by Helen Willcox, '44,
vice-president of the WAA Board.

'45, Marion Ford, '44, Dorothy Lund-
strom, '45, Phyllis Present, '44,1 and
Ruth Tarbell, '45.

Sweater Swing
Will Introduce
Informal Trend
The big Sweater Swing to be held
from 9 p.m. to midnight Friday in
the Union Ballroom is the first in a
series of informal dances which have
been planned to take the place of
the more formal dances of "pre-war"
days.
Bill Sawyer and his band will fur-
nish the music, and- they, as well as
those who plan to attend, are re-
quired to wear sweaters. Sports
clothes, without a sweater, will not
do.
These informal dances have been
planned to entertain the students
"in the manner to which they are
accustomed" but,- because of the war,
at less expense, according to Bunny
Crawford, '44, who is in charge of
Union dances..
One of the big events of the eve-
ning will be a Sweater Girl contest
to be judged by the B.M.O.C.'s and
B.W.OC.'s at the dance. There will
be prizes for the best-looking sweater
girls, and the number of candidates
will not be restricted.

Dean Lloyd Comments on
COEDS IN ARMED FORCES
EDITOR'S NOTE: Miss Alice C. Lloyd, Dean of women, is a member
of the Educational Council Advisory to the Navy and helped in the organ-
ization of the Naval services. She has recently been appointed as special
adviser on this campus for the wAACs. She will be very glad to interview
any young women who are interested in these services and wish advice or
information.
AS THE WAR ACCELERATS and the 18- and 19-year-old men
are called into active service, it is obvious that there will be a -
greater demand than ever for women in the service of their country.
The Women's Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC) has been asked to bring
its numbers up to 150,000, and constant requests for an increased
number of officers and enlisted personnel in the Women's Reserve of
the Navy (WAVES, Women Appointed for Voluntary Emergency
Service), the Women's Reserve of the Coast Guard (SPARS, semper
paratus-the motto of the Coast Guard), and the Women's Reserve
of the Marines all point to the fact that women are playing a tremen-
dously important part in the nation's military plans. The object of all
these military and naval services for women is to free men for active
combat duty.
All the services are turning to the colleges for the personnel for
both commissioned and non-commissioned officers. The leaders of
all the servicesurge those interested who are now in college to com-
plete their courses.'
A bulletin issued by the Committee on College Women Students
and the War of the American Council on Education brings out the
needs of the various services and some interesting differences in their
organization.

Opportunity To Aid War Effort,
Preparation for New Careers
Offered by Service in WAACs
Lieut. Sarah S. Hudgens, WAAC
recruiting officer from Detroit, will
interview applicants for the corps
from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday at the
Armory, 223 E, Ann St., and frbm 2
p.m. to 5 p.m. at the League..
Lieut. Hudgens, a native of North
Carolina, enlisted as an auxiliary in
the WAAC at the Fort Des Moines,
Iowa. Training Center, Nov. 2, 1942.
Code Relaxes
Rules on Minor
Employment
LANSING, Feb. 24. -P)- The
Commission of Labor and Industry
has approved a special wartime code
of regulations, relaxing restrictions
on employment of minors because of
the manpower shortage.
The new code which will expire
three months after the war allows
minors to operate properly safe-
guarded passenger elevators, but still
forbids their employment on freight
elevators. It lowers from 18 to 16
the age limit for employment on
welding operations, provided the
point of operation is properly venti-
lated.
Minor girls may be employed as
public messengers, but only within
a specific building under the new
rules. Another change permits em-
ployment of minors on "non-hazard-
ous" power-driven machines which
are properly guarded, but still are
prohibited from operating meat-cut-
ting machines and paper cutters.

She completed her basic training
Nov. 28 and entered the Officer Can-
didate School, receiving her commis-
sion as 3rd Officer or 2nd Lieut. on
Jan. 23, 1943.
WAAC Is Vital
She is now on duty at the Women's
Army Auxiliary Corps recruiting of-
fice in the federal building in Detroit,
and will be in Ann Arbor from time
to time to interview applicants, ac-
cording to Mrs. Wells I. Bennett,
CDVO recruiting chief.
Mrs. Bennett added that "the
necessity for using women in mili-
tary duties has been established. The
tasks women must accomplish in the
ranks of those who serve in the uni-
form of their country are important
tasks, vital to the functions of the
military establishment. Here is a real
opportunity to contribute personally
to the war effort."
Of special interest to students is
the U.S. Army Announcement to Col-
lege Women, which states that the
Army "has. scores of jobs in the
WAAC for alert college women .
jobs vital to the war . . . jobs that
will train you for interesting new
careers in the post-war world."
WAAC's will gain interesting, prac-
tical experience at full Army pay in
addition to helping their country by
doing essential military work that
frees soldiers for combat duty.
Requirements Specified
Enrollment is open to all wvomen
citizens, regardless of race, color or
creed, who are between the ages of
21 and 44 and have no dependents
nor children less than 14 years of
age.
Recruiting takes place from 9 a.m.
to 4' p.m. daily and from 7 p.m. to 9
p.m. Tuesdays and Fridays at the
Office of Civilian Defense in the
Armory.
