Work Sheets for War Activities
To Record Coed Participation

New Plan To Begin This Week;
Bulletins To Be Issued Monthly
The Women's War Activities Work
Sheets will be out sometime this
week, Miss Ethel McCormick, social
director of the league, announced
yesterday.
The new plan is designed to give a
comprehensive survey of the partici-
pation of the Michigan coeds in vol-
unteer work and paying jobs. To
help the labor shortages, each stu-
dent is asked to contribute at least
an hour of her time each week.
The sheets are to be kept by the
War Activities chairman of each so-
rority, co-op, dormitory and league
house on a weekly basis. At the end
of each month they are to be re-
turned to the Undergraduate office
in the League where the new sheets
will be available.
"Until the November work sheets
are ready for distribution, every coed
Stamp a Week
For Each Girl
Is JGP Goal
A stamp a week bought by each
Michigan coed will carry this year's
Junior Girls' Project to its 1943-44
goal by next May, it was announced
today by Rosalie Bruno, Betty Wille-
min, Peg Morgan, and Ruth Mary
Picard as the four house sales chair-
men formally opened the new cam-
paign.
The goal is set, according to JGP
Central Committee, as a minimum
mark for each woman on campus.
Deborah Parry, JGP chairman, ex-
pects this year's sales to soar high
above the quota, as many will be able
to afford more; and additional
stamps and bonds will be sold to
other Ann Arbor students, service-
men, faculty members, and towns-
people through booths in the League
and in University Hall, and through
skits, and corsages.
After signing up members last
week, several of the JGP committees
are already at work. The corsage
committee, under Marcia Netting,
sold carnations to coeds for the Fall
Prom, netting nearly $100 in war
stamps, while the publicity commit-
tee, headed by Peggy Weiss and Mar-
cia Sharpe, has begun a poster cam-
paign and has given a skit on cam-
pus to start the new drive.
More coed talent . .. singers, dan-
cers, actresses, writers . . is needed
by the skits and songs committee
under Bobbie Heym. The committee
will attempt to work up a show to be
given in Ann Arbor and nearby areas
to sell bonds and stamps.

is being asked to keep track of her
own hours and the jobs she has
worked on this month," Miss McCor-
mick stated. This is to help the com-
mittee get the plans underway as
soon as the sheets are received from
the printers.
At the end of each month a bulletin
will be distributed to every house on
campus showing the extent of their
participation and their standing in
relation to the other houses. This is
to encourage those houses with an
exceptional record to keep up with
the good work, and to stimulate those
who are falling behind to greater ef-
fort.
As the work sheets are turned in,
each individual girl's participation
will be recorded in the League files
by the members of the Merit Com-
mittee. It will become part of her
permanent college participation re-
cord which is used by Judiciary Com-
mittee in appointing project heads
and other positions.
Among the volunteer jobs that are
recognized are Blood Donor, Bomber
Scholarship, Child Care, Choral Uni-
on, committee meetings, '47 Corps,
Judiciary Committee, JGP, Merit
Committee, Nurses Aide, Student+
Publications, Surgical Dressings, hos-]
pital services, ushering, U of M Band
or Orchestra, WAA, Women's Gleet
Club and money raising projects.
Listed among the paid jobs for
which the coeds receive credit are
Building and Grounds work, Can-
teen, Child Care, factory and secre-
tarial work. Also included are Stu-
dent Publications, tutoring and work1
in the U of M Laundry.
Hospital Volunteer
Orientation Meeting
To Be Held Tuesday
"A third orientation meeting for3
hospital volunteers will be held at
7:30 p.m. Tuesday at University Hos-
pital," Carol Evans, '46, chairman,
announced yesterday.
Miss Evans suggested that women
who are interested in volunteer work
attend the meeting whether or not;
they have definitely decided to work.
"This will be an excellent opportuni-
ty to learn about volunteer duties and
the kinds of posts which can be as-
igned to volunteers," she said.
University Hospital furnishes the
Volunteer Service with blue jackets.
Workers must wear their own navy,
blue, black or white skirts, white7
blouses, low-heeled shoes and hose or
leg make-up. Dickies and anklets are
not accepted.

Sawyer To Play
For Traditional
Union Formal

furnish the music for the annual Un-
ion Formal which will be held from
9 p.m. to midnight Saturday, Decem-
ber 4, in the Union Ballroom, Dick
Chenoweth, general chairman, an-
nounced yesterday.
The announcement made last week
was a surprise as everyone had sup-
posed that traditional Union formals
were a thing of the past. However,
the committee is making arrange-
ments so that the dance will be given
in much the same manner as in pre-
vious years. This Union formal will
be the first and probably only dance

kets will be made shortly.

mittee, assisting Chenoweth are Ru-
pert Straub, Bob Grandy, Bob Gaul-
ker, John Clippert, Bill J. Wood, and
Don Larson.
Dependable Women
Only Asked To Work,
On Laundry Project
"There is nothing glamorous about
working in a laundry, but you will be
doing war-work that is directly im-
portant to servicemen," Miss Ethel
McCormick, League director of un-
dergraduate activities, said Friday at
a meeting of women interested in
working in the University Laundry.
Miss McCormick stressed the fact
that workers must be dependable.
"You will be expected. to work each
week at the time you signed for, and
this means during finals. If you can-
not work you must see that a substi-
tute who knows the job takes your
place."
Gerry Stadelman, '44, personnel
administrator of the Women's War
Council and director of the laundry
project sponsored by the five women's
honor societies, announced that work
would begin tomorrow. "We want
girls to work from 12 p.m. to 5:30
p.m. Mondays through Fridays and
from 8 a.m. to 12 a.m. on Saturdays."
Only clean linen will be handled
and work will include light jobs such
as folding and sorting. Workers will
be paid $.53 an hour. Miss Stadelman
also stressed the importance of de-
pendable and conscientious workers.
