Volunteers Find
Work Absorbing
At Willow Run
"Teacher, don't go!" is the familiar
cry that goes up when volunteers on
the Child Care Committee leave their
nursery school charges at Willow Run
to return to Ann Arbor, and "teacher"
more often than not would like very
much to stay, the volunteers report.
Coeds, assisting at Willow Run,
work not only in the nursery school,
but also help supervise in the gym,
lounge, and arts and crafts room.
They donate four hours of work a
week to taking care of the children
of Willow Run defense workers, and
every girl is helping out where she
is sorely needed by a small, over-
worked and grateful staff.
Experience in life and an oppor-
tunity to see how people from every
part of the country live is what the
child care volunteers at Willow Run
say they have gotten out of their
work. And there's the feeling they
have that they've kept the children
amused and happy for a few hours.
It is impossible for a girl to work out
there any length of time without
acquiring a feeling of attachment to
the "children."
"With their soft Tennessee and
Kentucky accents, the children, in
their quieter moments, completely
charm the girls supervising and their
progress has been remarkable," Lucy
Chase' Wright, chairman of Child
Care, said. Some of the work done in
the arts and crafts room looks almost
professional, while in the gym the
boys and girls are becoming profi-
cient in shooting baskets, according
to Willow Run educational leaders.
Club Sponsors Tea
The Faculty Women's Club will
hold a tea from 3 to 5 p.m. at the
home of Mrs. Hugh Keeler of 660
Barton Drive to honor all newcomers
to the organization.
Anyone who is faced with trans-
portation difficulties for the evening
may call Mrs. Leonard Meretta at

5489 who is making special arrange-
ments to accomodate those who would
be otherwise forced to miss the tea.
