List of Patrons Is Announced;
Navy To Sponsor Nation-Wide
Broadcast by Gray at 6:30 p.m.
Because of an overwhelming de-
mand for tickets to the Bomber
Scholarship Dance to be held from
8:30 p. m. to midnight tomorrow at
Waterman Gym, 100 tickets will be
placed on sale at the Union Ticket
Resale Desk at 7 p. m. tomorrow,
with only one ticket to be sold to a
customer, Roy Boucher, '45, chair-
man, announced today.
This first gala occasion of the sea-
son will feature the music of Glen
Gray and his Casa Loma orchestra.
Preceding the dance, from 6:30 to
7 p. in., Glen Gray will broadcast
over the nation-wide hookup from
Hill Auditorium. The program,
which is being given especially for
Navy men and other military per-
sonnel on campus, is being made up
by the Navy Department in Wash-
ington. Navy personnel will occupy
the center section of Hill Auditor-
ium. Capt. Richard Cassidy, USN,
will speak at the broadcast.
Especially for Servicemen
Dictated by war-time necessity,
decorations and attire for the dance
will be strictly informal. Because
of the large number of servicemen
stationed on campus, the dance has
been planned primarily for them
and they are especially invited, ac-
cording to Mr. Boucher.
The entire proceeds from the
dance will be donated to the Bomb-
er Scholarship Fund. The Bomber
Scholarship Fund has been estab-
lished to help men and women serv-
ing in the armed forces to return
to the University and complete their
education after the war.
A self-sustaining organization,
the Scholarship has set its goal for
1943-44 to be double that of last
year's total of $15,000. The drive
this year is under the direction of
Jean Bisdee, '4, treasurer of the
Women's War Council.

tribution of the year -1943 to the
realm of Michigan society, has met
with marked success, according t
Miss Bisdee.

students have registered. Up to the
present, the work of the bureau has
been to provide dates for the Fall

way to arrange other dates as well.

The Surgical Dressings Unit will
be open from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. today in
the game room of the League, Mickey
Thielen, publicity chairman, an-

"We are opening the unit on Fri-
days in response to popular demand,"
Miss Thielen stated, "and it will re-
main open as long as the students
continue to support it."
The first few weeks, the unit will
be training instructors, so that the
number of dressings shipped out can
be increased. At present there are
not enough instructors to inspect all
of the dressings that have been made.
A coed may become an instructor by
working six hours at the unit and
passing a Red Cross test.

with Representation."

-Joan List

There is a general protest from the women on campus over the nlew
and unpopular eleven-thirty lights out program presented by the Women's
War Council. The program is a voluntary one but the manner of its
presentation has left the words "cooperation" and "compulsion" un-
amusingly confused in the minds of Michigan coeds.
Such fracases, with the resultant bad feeling so injurious to the
spirit of wartime unity among the University's women students, could
be prevented by a very simple, unradical step. The house presidents,
who have had to act as go-betweens in this awkward affair, should be
given the opportunity of voting on regulations and suggestions forwarded
by the Council and working with the Council to clarify the implications
of such suggestions. Thus an elected group, truly representative, would
cooperate with the small appointed body for a more efficient administra-
tion of matters concerning women students.
An attitude of negativism toward the current situation is immature.
The idea of the University women working together to carry out a policy
which would be helpful to all is an excellent one but in this case the
women have really no sense of participation, only the impression, right
or wrong, that they are being arbitrarily told what to do. In the problems
arising from the misunderstandings about the lights-out suggestion, a way
of extending practical democracy on this campus can be seen. Let's
not scream, "No regulation," but, as responsible University citizens, anxious
to help in the campus and national war effort, work for "Regulation
