Feast Day for Army
Man Away from Home-y
With few exceptions, the boys in
the Army will eat turkey this year
regardless of how far they are from
home, Capt. R. C. Zartman, quarter-
master, announced yesterday.
Turkey dinners were made possible
by an order from the government
freezing the sale of turkeys to civil-
ians until the government had pro-
cured enough to assure every man in
uniform a good helping ofturkey. It
will be a good helping because the
Army allows one pound of turkey per
man, Capt. Zartman said.
The master menu, prepared by the
Office of the Quartermaster General
in Washington, is to be used as a
standard for the entire Army.
Breakfast will be: oranges, dry
cereal, fresh milk, hot cakes; bacon,
toast, butter, sirup and coffee.
For dinner the men will have: fruit
cup, roast turkey with dressing, gravy
and cranberry sauce, mashed pota-
toes, buttered peas, ~corn, tomato and
lettuce salad, crisp celery, assorted
pickles, hot rolls, butter, pumpkin pie,
apples, grapes, candies, nuts and
.Supper will consist of: cold cuts,
sliced cheese, potato cakes, vege-
tables, bread and butter, peanut but-
ter and cocoa.

For all freshman and upperclass
women who signed up for rushing,
there will be a compulsory meeting
at 3:30 p. m. Friday in Rackham
Auditorium, according to Mary June
Hastreiter, '44, president of Panhel-
It is essential that every woman
who intends to go through the rush-
ing period be present at this meeting
which will be given in order to ex-
plain the entire rushing procedure. It
is expected that many of the prob-
lems which usually confront women
planning to rush will be cleared up at
At the meeting, all women will be
given booklets explaining sorority
policy, rushing rules and a variety
of other details they will need to
know before they invade sorority row.
These booklets will be made available
at the rushing booth only.
Because of the large number of
women desiring to sign up for rush-
ing this year, the registration period
has been extended until Nov. 29. It
is now possible to register in the
Undergraduate Office of the League.
This year, for the first time, a new
system has been put into effect tak-
ing the place of the former silence
period which existed between sorority
and independent women. All sorority
women have been put on their honor
not to discuss sorority with any
freshman or upperclass non-sorority

Actress Is Envious
"She walked up to us and shook

15 minutes and during this time she

Quota Is Raised
"The Navy doesn't want to fbrce
people to join. A girl may change her
