Committee Members
This year's Slide Rule Ball is com-
bined with the annual Engineering
Ball. Hank Schmidt, vice-president
of the Engineering Council, would
lhave headed the Engineering Ball

Linker and Bill Powers as ticket
chairmen, John Clipert, ballroom
chairman, Rupert Straub, orchestra.

publicity committee. Bek is the new-
ly elected president of the engineer-
ing school senior class.
All engineers are looking forwardl
Wo one of the highlights of the eve-
ning which will be the return of
their missing slide rule, according to
Bek. The prized possession has been
missing since the last Slide Rule Ball,
and rumors indicate that the lawyers
are guilty of the theft. The lawyers
are expected to appear shortly be-
fore midnight.
"Although the Engineers could not.
select their queen we are certain
that she will be there," Bek said. He
also reminded the men that corsages
are not permitted.

icemen will be held at 7 p.m. today
in the ballroom of the USO Club.

fSun Tanfoalizes
Relaxed Students
Old Sol is finally out in all his
blooming glory again and all good
University of Michigan students have
run right out to get their full benefit
of him. As a result student's faces
are blossoming out everywhere with
tans (for the lucky ones), burns (for
the. unfortunate ones), and freckles
(for, alas, both kinds.)
On a typical sunny afternoon lawns
are strewn with Michiganites after
their quota of vitamin D. Blankets
are spread out, books scattered lazily
about, and shoes often kicked cas-
ually off--truly a peaceful sight.
Dormitory sun porches are also in
the limelight this time of year. For.
after all, where else could you get a
tan, the daily gossip, and your lessons
all at the same time. Perhaps we'd
better just leave it with a tan and
No matter how you look at it the
sun is -good for you so get out in it.
After all, there are only 1,000 sunny
hours in Ann Arbor a year (it's a
fact), so let's not let any be wasted.
Dancing in the League Ballroom

Help Shortage
Remains Acute,
At St. Joseph's
No institution has felt the acute
manpower shortage as strongly as
the hospitals. Today, when the health
of every individual is so important to
the war effort, the lack of help in
these hospitals constitutes a grave
danger. The Michigan coeds have
failed to recognize this danger. St.
Joseph's Hospital has repeatedly
asked for coed volunteers: yet up to
date it has received little support.
Mrs. Wanzig, head of the volun-
teers at St. Joseph's, says, "Coeds are
vitally needed to carry trays during
meal hours from noon to 2 p.m. and
from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. However,
any other time will help out. Assis-
tance in the nursery, clerical work,
and ward duty are the tasks which
require coed help."
No costume is necessary. No regu-
lar hours are required. There is no
preliminary orientation. Coeds may
go over at a convenient time and
begin their work.
The need for volunteers is so great
that the requirements have' been re-
laxed to remove all possible excuses.
How can anyone fail to recognize the
urgency of the situation? With this,
urgency in mind, it is the duty of
every coed to cooperate wholeheart-
edly in alleviating the shortage at
St. Joseph's.
