Dance Club Needs
Larger Tap Section

Thursday, unless there is an in-
creased coed turn-out at its meeting
tomorrow, according to Rae Larsen,I
'44, Dance Club chairman.
The five present members of the

Masters of America, teaches theI
group at no cost to the members, and1
the hour is usually spent working on1
new steps and on musical comedy
routines.I
The club, inaugurated last fall,?

interest by coming out and dancing

Dressings Unit
To Inaugurate
New System
A new system requiring each wo-
men's residence to contribute a spe-
cified number of hours each week to
the League Surgical Dressings Unit
has been inaugurated, according to
Mickey Thielen, '45, publicity chair-
man of the Unit, who also announced
that houses which fail to fulfill their
quota of hours will be placed on a
well-publicized "black-list."
Miss Thielen urged regular work-
ers to continue coming on days their
house is not required to send mem-
bers. "Just because a definite num-
ber of hours is asked it does not mean
that houses cannot and should not
contribute more," she said.
"Coeds who have been working at
the Unit deserve credit for the fine
attendance record of last wee," Miss
Thielen continued.
Sorority pledges must record their
hours for t'_e house in which they
are now living, and workers are in-
vited to come in groups of five or six.
"A group of women who know each
other will find it very pleasant to
work at the same table. Why not
have "bull sessions" at the Unit rath-
er than at the nearest drug store?"
Miss Thielen suggested.
Coeds who work or have classes
during the afternoon are asked to
spend one evening each week at the
surgical dressings unit in the Rack-
ham Building, which is open from
7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday and
Thursday. Hours contributed in the
evening are transferable to house
records.

Lag in Laundry,
Volunteering
Donald A. Callnin, manager of the
University laundry, stated that of
125 University students registered at
the laundry, only 79 worked last
week, putting in a total of 406 hours
for the week.
Callnin said that because of the
small number of students working
for this period, the hours put in
equalled those of only seven and
one-half full time employes. He.
emphasized that coeds have worked!
in very well with regular employes,
but some of them have not been too
dependable.
University women averaged less
than two hours a person during a
ten day period, but Callnin felt that
as the semester progressed, they
