representing Assembly and the other
representing the sororities.

to petition for the positions.
Archery Club
To Meet Today
Bull's-eye targets set up on Pal-
mer Field may look like a far cry
from the green depths of Sherwood
Forest, but the spirit of the archers
is still present in the WAA Archery
Club, headed by Barbara Fairman,
'46, who will assume the managership
of the Archery Club in addition to
that of the Outing Club.
The first meeting of the Archery
Club will be held at 5 p.m. today in
the small lounge of the WAB, and
all coeds who are interested in arch-
ery are urged to attend. At this
initial meeting, plans for the organi-
zation and activities of the club will
be discussed.
No previous experience is necessary
for membership in this club, and wo-
men of all classes are invited to join.
However, those coeds who have had
some archery practice either at the
University or at other schools are
especially asked to join.aIt is not
necessary to own a bow and arrows,
because all equipment may be rented
at the WAB for a small sum.
Two groups will be formed within
the club. One group will be for those
coeds who have had advanced arch-
ery with instruction while the other
group will be for beginners. Instruc-
tions will be given to those who need
it. Inter-club tournaments will be
sponsored as wel las matches with
neighboring colleges.

More Workers
Assist at Unit
House Honor Roll Announced
As New System Is Inaugurated
"Last week was unusually success-
ful for the League Surgical Dressings
Unit," Mickey Thielen, publicity
chairman, said yesterday.
"If attendance continues to be as
excellent we shall be able to meet
our Red Cross quota," she added. The
newly adopted system whereby wo-
men's residences are asked to send
enough workers to contribute a speci-
fied number of hours each week will
be continued.
The honor roll thus far for at-
tendance at the unit consists of the
1 following houses; sororities, whose
quotas are 16 ho'urs a week for
each house, are Chi Omega, with
30 hours; Delta Delta Delta, 27
hours; Alpha Epsilon Phi, 27 hours;
Alpha Chi Omega, 22 hours; Kappa
Delta, 21 hours; Alpha Delta Pi, 20
hours; Kappa Kappa Gamma, 16
hours; auxiliary dorm with a quota

14 hours; Starring House, 6 hours;
Strickland House, 5 hours; Hen-
drickson House, 5 hours; Augspur-
ger House, 4 hours; Rock House, 3
Miss Thielen emphasized that the
new system is not designed to limit

those asked of the houses are neces-
sary to fill the quota.
Surgical Dressings' workers must
not wear sweaters, but cotton blouses,
dresses or smocks are required. No
lint from woolen material must be
allowed to get into the bandages.
Nail polish is also prohibited.
The Unit is open from 1 p.m. to
5 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday and

of One Courageous American
et excitingstory of the fmous
Doolittle raid on Japan-and quietly and

It doesn't really look like this-the
handy gadget that grinds up bones and
scraps and washes them down your
sink drain. But think how convenient it
will be-after the war-to simply scrape
off the dishes after a meal and not
bother trotting out with the garbage!
"Mechanical pigs" aren't being made
now. You'll probably want one when
they are again manufactured. Mean-
while, put your money in War Bonds.
Someday you will be able to own one
of these handy waste-disposal unit,

washer and all the other aids to better
living that electricity will make possible
after Victory.
