Music by Jerry Wald
Contrary to a usual rule in the rise
of band leaders, Jerry Wald, whose
orchestra will be featured at the
dance, served no apprenticeship but
started his musical career by leading
a band of his own. Wald, who is
rapidly becoming known as one of
the finest clarinet-playing musicians
in the East, will come here from an
engagement at the New Yorker Hotel.
Wald stepped out of high school to
lead his own band when he was 19
years old and has been leading it ever
'47 Corps To Begin
Planting of Victory
Gardens Saturday
The '47 Corps, beginning Saturday,
will undertake as part of their class
project the planting and care of cam-
pus Victory Gardens, which will be
located behind the League and Jor-
dan and Stockwell Halls, according to
Estelle Klein, '47, chairman of the
Freshman Project Committee.
"Now that the freshman women
have completed the major work need-
ed to be done on the campus lawns,
the '47 Corps will start campus Vic-
tory Gardens in order to help relieve
the food shortage and to cooperate
with the request of the government to
raise garden products," said Miss
Tomatoes will be the only "crop"
of the campus gardens and will be
cared for by all the freshman women
who wish to volunteer for the work.
Each '47 worker who is interested in
the Victory Garden work can sign up
with her dormitory or league house
leader for a certain time each week to

since. After playing in New Jersey
for a few years, he went to California
where he formed a four-piece combi-
nation that included Stan Kenton as
pianist. From there, he and his band
went to New York and have been
there ever since, breaking attend-
ance records. He is a Decca recording

Handling the vocals will be Ginny
Powell and Dick Merrick. Miss Pow-

ell, although she started singing for
the NBC Red Network three years

Wald's policy is that of playing
only pieces he likes. "If I don't like
a song, it doesn't go into the books,"
he maintains.

WAA Boards Wash
Walls at Lunch Frolic
Coeds who frequent the WAB may
have noticed the newly washed walls
in the main lounge and the entrance
This clean-up job is the work of
the newly installed WAA fBoard,
working with the retiring members,
at their annual wall-washing day
On this occasion the coeds gather in
the morning, work, with the lunch
furnished by Dr. Bell and the faculty
of the Physical Education Depart-
ment for Women.
Every year a different part of the
WAB is scrubbed by the blue-jean
clad board members . . . but the
women don't seem to complain about
the hard work, it being the one time
of the year, they say, in which they
can release their inhibitions and can
throw sponges at each other.

Dressings Unit, closed for a week
because of lack of material, will
open at 1 p.m. tomorrow, remain-

Foreign-Post Officers Plead:
"SEND MORE WACs overseas" was the plea of commanding officers speak-
ing from foreign posts on the WAC anniversary radio programs over
the week-end.
Tales of women's heroism during bombings and battles were given as
proof by these high ranking officials that women are capable and necessary
in offices and communications centers in offensive and defensive areas.
THAT MORE WACs are needed seemed to be the obvious conclusion to
gather from all reports.
But where are more WACs to come from? How can overseas positions
be filled when every Army airfield and base in the United States has

interview women interested in securing information about the Women's
Army Corps from 10 a.m. to noon and 1:30 to 5:30 p.m. today.
vacancies in their personnel that MUST be filled? The women who took
the Romulus Air Base tour learned that every job they saw being done by
the few WACs available needed dozens more workers.
TO MEET this increasing demand for womanpower, the War Department
has arranged WAC enlistment, so that a woman may register for par-
ticular bases and Theatre of Operations when she first signs her name.
Every Army post needs more WACs, so every woman may choose her own!
University women are offered the 120-Day Plan, in which they register
now for service, but stipulate how much time they desire, up to 120 days,
before being actively called. All examinations but the medical are taken
now to permit women to be certain of their ability to pass.
AFTER JOINING THE WAC, specialized training is offered, to prepare the
members for wartime occupations and for post-war jobs. Practical
experience in aeronautics, photography, radio, and 236 other jobs is given.
gN THIS INVASION SPRING, the War Department is asking for every
woman between the ages of 20 and 50 to consider if she is waiting for
victory or working for it.
The Women's Army Corps is in the front ranks working.
