Junior Project
Offers Many,
Varied Positions
Efficiency and originality are the
prime requisites for positions on the
central committee of Junior Girls
Project, for which any sophomore
coed may petition today through Fri-
day in the Undergraduate Office of
the League.
The juniors have converted their
class project to taking its place in
the war effort; its main object is the
sale of war bonds and stamps to Un-
iversity students and members of
the staff. The committee includes a
chairman, assistant chairman, sec-
retary, treasurer and publicity, post-
er, booth, sorority, dormitory, league
house and skits and songs chairmen.
Petition Blanks Available
Petition blanks, which must be fill-
ed out in ink, are available in the
Undergraduate Office. The Council
requires applicants to state fully
their plans for the positions desired,
including suggestions for procedure.
Posters in the League further describe
the positions open and contain other
information relative to the petition-
House chairmen-for dormitories,
sororities and league houses-have
difficult jobs; efficiency aid hardj
work are needed to keep sales mov-
ing. The same is true of the booths
No Hard, Fast Rules
The chairman of skits and songs
actually "makes" her own work, for
there are no hard and fast rules at-
tached to the position, and the title
allows almost any type of entertain-
Publicity is another position which
can involve a variety of activities:
writing, drawing, all types of stunts.
This year general publicity and post-
ers will have separate heads.
In addition to its year-around proj-
ect, in the spring JGP gives some
type of entertainment in honor of
the senior class. Before the war
the juniors gave a junior-senior stunt
night and Junior Girls Play, but in
the last two years wartime restric-
tions and the demands of other war
work have cut the project to one
function only.

Unit Comes Monthly
The Mobile Unit comes to Ann
Arbor once a month. The Unit's
stay is brief, because the blood must
be returned to the Detroit base for
processing before the blood is made
useless. For that reason the Mobile
Unit cannot travel more than 40
miles from its home base.
In Detroit, the blood -is reduced to
plasma, converted to powder form,
and transported in cartons to field
hospitals. On the fronts it is mixed
with distilled water and used for
