War Council Is
coordinator of
Coed Activities
Women's Governing Body is
Composed of Executive 'Board,
Project and Committee Heads
The Michigan League, center of
women's campus activities and gov-
erned by the Women's War Council,
is functioning at full speed in a war-
time program of activities which have
supplanted the old pre-war extra-
curricular work traditionally carried
on by college women.
As a governing board, the Women's
War Council is composed of an ex-
ecutive board which discusses the
pro's and con's of all problems before
the board and presents alternative
solutions to the whole War Council.
The executive board is made up of
the president of the Women's War
Council, Vice-president .and person-
nel administrator, the secretary, the
treasurer, and the president of Ju-
diciary Council.
Chairme nAre Members
Members of the War Council are
chairmen of the class projects-
Frosh Project being the care of the
campus grounds, Soph Project the
providing of volunteer workers at the
University and St. Josephs' Hospi-
tals, and Junior Project the sale of
stamps and bonds via unusual en-
tertainment projects.
Also on the War Council is the
chairman of surgical dressings, the
group which rolls bandages for use
by the armed forces. Similarly, the
Child Care Committee chairman,
who is in charge of recruiting wo-
men to supervise the work and play
of children living in the Willow Run
area, is part of the Council. And the
chairman of the Social Committee
is a council member, her duty being
to supervise-all social events, includ-
ing the Ruthven and International
Center teas held weekly.
Recruits Volunteers
The vice-president, who is also
the personnel administrator, is in
charge of getting coeds to work for
various campus organizations, such
as the University laundry and the
Union, whenever paid " or volunteer
workers are needed. Thus, any or-
ganization .needing help i free to
call on the office of the personnel
administrator to recruit the required
Other War Council members in-
clude the president of the Women's
Athletic Association, the chief USO

USO Summer
Plans Include
Varied Activities
The Ann Arbor USO took over
Harris Hall last fall, and made it in-
to the present USO Club. Before
this, dances were held at the League,
and the USO ceased to function dur-
ing the week. Now Harris Hall is
open to servicemen and junior hos-
tesses all the time.
Plans for the summer include Fri-
day and Saturday night dances,
weekly dancing classes for soldiers,
and fudge parties, taffy pulls, danc-
ing, games, group singing and other
activities during the week. A classi-
cal music hour will be featured on
Sunday afternoons. Open House is
also held every Sunday afternoon
and evening. Future plans include
USO picnics and Sunday morning
USO' breakfasts.
Junior hostesses must be between
18 and 30 years of age, and are re-
quired to present two references.
Freshmen women must bring these
references from their home town,
and one should be from a clergyman,
if possible. Attendance at a meet-
ing for prospective junior hostesses
and an interview are compulsory.
Colonel, the women's editor of The
Daily, the presidents of Panhellenic
and Assembly boards, the chairman
of the Orientation-Tutorial Commit-
tee, and the Bomber Scholarship
Committee head, the latter's job be-
ing to help raise money for the $100,-.
000 fund which will send men and
women in the armed forces to school
after the war is over.
Interviews Coeds
Judiciary Council is the body
which makes the campus rules for
women-all rules regarding closing
hours, delinquencies, and the like,
and it is also the body which sub-
jects the offenders to punishment
when and if the rules are violated.
Another important job carried on by
Judiciary Council is the interviewing
of all women who are petitioning
for campus activities jobs. "Judish"
selects the women who show the
most promise and who have the best
ideas for carrying on activities to
head all projects, including War
Council positions.
Thus it is that a coordinating body
has been formed to direct women
in campus affairs, to recruit workers
a sthey are needed by other organi-
zations, and generally to see that
University women enter into a con-
centrated program of war activities
for the duration.

Make Most of Opportunities
To the Freshman Women:
r[O THE ENTERING WOMEN, there is a special message this year.
The women of America are now almost the only young people in
the world who have the privilege of higher education, and moreover,
have that experience in college communities, where to see the sun by
day and the stars at night does not mean the threat of death and des-
truction from the air. In these war years, though we all realize that
the world is a suffering world, we women of America are to an
unusual extent untouched by it in our daily lives.
THIS PUTS upon every woman who enters the University of Mich-
igan this year the obligation to make the experience of college a
truly significant one. Upon the women of America rests the three-
fold obligation of preserving our cultural heritage, of preparing our-
selves to do some important and specific task toward the winning of
the war and later the preserving of the peace, and finally, and most
important of all, to maintain the values of a Christian Democracy-
a public-spirited interest in the welfare of all people, tolerance and
vision in facing the problems of our Nation, always with a fine sense
of personal integrity which alone can produce a healthy and sound
society. Those who are fighting for us will want to find a good society
to come back to. It is our privilege to preserve these values in a
world of strife.
O THE FRESHMEN who now enter in June, 1944, the University
of Michigan has a warm welcome, because we believe that, as you
accept education from the State, you will help to preserve the culture
and traditions of a nation founded on the principles of freedom of
spirit, of freedom of religion, of freedom to know the truth.
-Alice Lloyd
Dean of Women
