Atten d an e Falls
A1 t Bandage Unit
The League Surgical Dressings
Unit weekly honor roll is led by Al-
pha Epsilon Phi sorority and Pray
League House, according to Mickey
Theilen, publicity chairman.
No dormitory contributed a suffi-
cient number of hours to meet the
minimum honor roll requirements.
Other sororities who gave 16 or more
hours are Delta Delta Delta, Gamma
Phi Beta and Alpha Delta Pi.
Jellema, Cordes, and Augsburger
League Houses met the minimum of
three hours required for League
houses. The Unit is open from 1
p. m. to 5 p. m. each week and in-
dividual workers are urged to at-
tend as. the specific number of
hours asked of each house is not
enough to fill the quota set by the
Red Cross.
Cotton blouses, dresses or smocks
must be worn. Woolen lint must not
be allowed to enter the dressing.
Nail polish, is also prohibited. Cot-
ton headresses are supplied by the
Red Cross but workers are asked to
bring their own as the .Upit's supply
is limited. Coeds are asked to work
two consecutive hours. Instructors
are always present to aid newcomers.
"Invading forces need huge quan-
tities _of surgical ,dressings," Miss
Theilen said. "The two hours of
work done by a coed can save the
life of a wounded soldier," she added.

The list continues with: alumni -
Doris Chapman, Dick Chenoweth,
Helen Baldwin, Elaine Stembol,
Sandy Perlis; drives - Shirley Sick-
les, John Clippert, Mary Kimball,
Milton Budyk, Joyce Livermore; per-
sonnel - Bob Gaukler, June Retzlaff,
Art Shufro. Natalie Ann Maguire,
and Dick Mixer.
