St. Joseph's WAC Officer
Hospital Needs To Lead Tour
Coed Workers Of Air Base

Plea for Volunteers Is Made
By Carol Evans, Chairman;
No Uniforms Are Necessary
"St. Joseph's Hospital at 326 North
Ingalls is desperately in need of vol-
unteer workers." Carol Evans, chair-
man of Soph Project, said yesterday.
"Coeds living in sorority or League
Houses in the vicinity of St. Joseph's
are especially urged to arrange time
to contribute a few hours each week,"
she added.
Duties Are Pleasant
The duties of a volunteer are pleas-
ant and workers enjoy doing it as
much as patients enjoy having them
there, according to Miss Evans. Vol-
unteer work is designed to relieve
professional staff members of duties
that are important to the patient's
happiness, but are not vital to their
phycisal health. Arranging flowers,
passing ice-water, arranging pillows,
delivering messages for nurses, work-
ing with records and other errands
for nurses or patients constitute the
work done by volunteers.
No uniforms are required, but vol-
unteers are asked to wear cotton
dresses or blouses. Help is needed
at any time, particularly at meal-
time to pass trays.
To Report to Director
Volunteers report to the office of
Miss Marie Wanzig, director of nurs-
es, for assignments to floors. All
hours are recorded on activity sheets
in the Undergraduate Offices of the
Further information concerning
work at St. Joseph's may be obtained
by calling Miss Evans at 4879 or the
hospital at 2-3211.
Soph Project formerly sponsored
only volunteer corps at University
Hospital, however, both corps were
combined during the fall semester.
Sophomore women sponsor the proj-
ect, but all Uiversity women are
urged to work.

tunes for all coeds, servicemen and
civilians who will gather for dancing

main ballroom of the Michigan
Features of the evening will be a
brand new arrangement of the old
favorite, "Stormy Weather" and a
saxophone solo played by Al Bohms
entitled, "Beebe."
Another feature of this week-end's

Project Petitions Due
Petitioning for the three positions
on the Freshman Project, open to all
first semester freshman women, and
to second semester freshmen whose
homes are in Ann Arbor, ends today.
Petitions may be obtained at the
Undergraduate Office in the League.

and Tuesday in the League.

Romulus Air Base will be.shown to
15 women on campus April 17 when
Lt. Barbara Bethel Rodgers willwcon-
duct a tour for all coeds who are
seriously considering joining the Air
Registration for this trip is now
being held in Miss McCormick's office
in the League. As Army regulations
prohibit too large a group of visitors
on the base at one time, the first tour
is limited to 15 persons. Other groups
will be planned by Lt. Rodgers if
more than 15 sign up this time.
The complete day, from 9 a.m. to
4 p.m., will be spent in watching the
activities of an Army Air Base. Lunch
in the mess hall will be one of the
day's features.
Over 200 Opportunities
Life in the Air WAC permits a large
range of activities-more than 200
types of assignments are available
for the enlisten woman. Some of the
specialized jobs require Army school-
ing, which is given to qualified WACs
after they have completed their basi
military training.
Sgt. Virginia Day, stationed in the
Ann Arbor Recruiting office is enthu-
siastic over the opportunities for
learning in the WAC that will apply
to post-war positions: "A weather
observer watches a test balloon
through a theodolite-she is learning
as she works. A control tower opera-
tor brings a plane in for landing-
actual experience in handling planes
is a skull which she is developing
each day on the job.
Specific Jobs Described
"A photographic technician devel-
ops negatives for an aerial map-she
is becoming proficient in a highly
specialized field. A radio mechanic
testsa plane's radio-more learning
by doing.
"These jobs-everything from sec-
retarial work to parachute packing-
are an essential part of keeping
planes in the air and it's a wonderful
WAC requirements include: "20 to
50 years of age, American citizenship,
two years of high school, general
good health and average height and

New Surgical
Dressings Plan
Is Successful
The new system inaugurated at the
League Surgical Dressings Unit,
whereby houses promise a specified
number of hours, is proving success-
ful, according to Mickey Thielen, pub-
licity chairman for the unit.
"Workers are needed in addition to
those sent by houses," she said. "If
the unit is to meet its quota as set
by the Red Cross there must be en-
thusiastic student support."
The unit is open from 1 to 5
p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday and
Friday. Workers are asked to give
at least two consecutive hours a week.
Miss Thielen said that a lot of time
is wasted during the first hour put-
ting on headdresses and getting ma-
terials, consequently only a coed who
contributes two hours is really val-
All hours are recorded on student
activities records in the Undergrad-
uate Offices of the League as making
surgical dressings is one of the most.
important war activities sponsored
by the University.
Cotton blouses or dresses must be
worn by workers as woolen sweaters
present the danger of lint getting in
the dressings. Nail polish must not
be worn.
Tutorial Committee
To Provide, Register
Tutors Next Week
Tutorial Committee will begin next
week providing tutors for those desir-
ing them, and those wishing tutoring
or who wish to tutor may register in
the Undergraduate Office of the
League, Jane Faggen, chairman, an-.
nounced recently.
Members of the Tutorial Commit-
tee will meet at 5 p.m. Tuesday in
the Undergraduate Office of the
League to map out plans for the
semester's activity. Miss Faggen
stressed the importance of this meet-
Tutors are paid at the rate of 75
vents an hour and the committee
makes arrangements for the appoint-
ments. Those who tutored last year
are urged to register again, because,
Miss Faggen pointed out, a new list
has been made for this semester.
There is a need for tutoring in almost
every subject.
Further information may be ob-
tained from Miss Faggen at 2-2591.


ONCE THERE was a columnist named Yearnie who wrote for the Daily
Newspaper in a Mid-Western university. Now he was no ivory-tower
dweller, this Yearnie, so when he wrote his column he went to town on
Pertinent Issues and knocked all the Thinkers and Non-Thinkers for a
loop. He was a Good Guy with the Right Ideas and everyone figured he'd
have some pretty important Things to say.
BUT ONE NIGHT, Yearnie went out on a beer spree and got kind of mad
at a girl named Sheila. As he cried into his beer, he decided that he
would write A Column about it. Sheila didn't have a chance in the world.
PRETTY SOON he published a little piece about Sheila, and in the bar-
gain he managed to do in every coed on campus. Of course he was
very precious about it-quoting Montaigne and all that-and he had Some-
thing to Say. So you see, it wasn't"

what he said, it was the way he said
H E ACCUSED the coed of putting
her wardrobe before the war, of
"sitting around in the east of the
lecture room and the splendor of
league houses," he called her an au-
tomaton, he did her in for all time.
And all the coeds who read his col-
umn began to wonder about Yearnie.
They figured that inasmuch as there
were plenty of women around who
gave very little thought to anything
more important than their wardrobes,
there was some Truth in what Yearnie
said, and he was being his Old Dis-
cerning Self. But that was as far as
it went.
THEY put it bluntly. They said
thathe was dealing in glittering
generalities, that he hadn't thought
too much about what he was saying,
that he was, in short, going on a
literary spree at the expense of every
woman in the university.
THEY wondered where he was when
women were carrying trays over
at the hospital, when they were hold-
ing impromptu political debates at
the dinner table, when they were
condemning those among them who
obviously didn't know what was going
on in the world, when they were being
turned away from blood bank because
the month's quota had been filled,
when they were running their heads
off trying to jo something concrete
for the Post-War Council, the Inter-
Racial Association, the MYDA.
THEY figured that anything he had
to say could have been voiced
after just a little more thinking.
SO SHEILA was ruined, and the co-
ed was antagonized, and Yearnie
went on writing his column and say-
ing Big Things. All his Wisdom and

erudition was lost in a maze of fury,
and people figured that something
ought to be done about it.
THUS came the inevitable challenge
to pseudo-intellectualism: the de-
mand that he get down off his intel-
lectual high horse, stop trying to show
up people's vocabularies, and make
something more than a repulsive stab
at everyone in general. Most people
knew that he had the Right Ideas,
and the steam behind them, but they
also knew that even the Right Ideas
can't get much past the steam stage
when they are flung at the public
packed in superficiality, pseudo-in-
tellectualism, and plain everyday

time record of $1,000# in stamps to

nelia Groefsema, '45, JGP treasurer.

sand dollars.

ior entertainment for senior women,
which will be given Thursday, April
27, in the Lydia Mendelssohn Thea-

Lloyd will give a skit.
