Nurse Corps
Representative
To Visit Campus
Opportunities Offered
To College Women Is
Subject for Discussion
Miss Dorothy Rusby, representa-
tive of the National Nursing Council
for War Service and the United
States Cadet Nurse Corps, will be on
the campus Dec. 6 and 7 to discuss
the opportunities for college women
in the United States Nurse Corps.
Informal discussions will be held
in the League and in the dormitories
for students interestd in nursing.
Her visit is part of a nation-wide
endeavor to recruit 65,000 student
nurses this year for wartime replace-
ments caused by the acute needs of
the Army, Navy and civilian health
agencies, and also to interest college
women in preparation for post-war
careers.
Nursing, Miss Rusby believes, is
war work with a future. Even before
graduation, the student nurse is
recognized as being in a service as
essential as that undertaken by the
WACs, the WAVES, the SPARS and
women in the Marines. Student
nurses release graduate nurses for
service overseas, or in military or
naval hospitals at home.
After receiving her professional
training at St. Luke's Hospital
School of Nursing in New York City,
Miss Rusby joined the staff of the
Henry Street Visiting Nurse Service,
where she served as supervisor and
educational assistant, before being
appointed to her present position on
the personnel staff.
She is a member of Chi Delta
Omega sorority, St. Luke's Alumnae
Association, the American Nurses'
Association, the American Public
Health Association, and the National
Organization of Public Health
Nursing.
Lautenschlager
To Speak Here
The Rev. Stanton Lautenschlager,
modern history and sociology profes-
sor at Cheeloo University, China, will
discuss the problems of China Thurs-
day and Friday before several Ann
Arbor audiences.
Returning to the University for the
first time since he received his mast-
er's degree in 1920, Mr. Lautenschlag-
er will speak at the Family Night din-
ner at 6 p. m. Thursday at the First
Presbyterian Church. He will also
lecture on the subject "The Students
in Free China" at 7:30 p. m. Thurs-
day in the Kellogg Auditorium.
He will address the Women's As-
sociation of the Presbyterian Church
at 3 p. m. Friday. Women from all
the Ann Arbor churches have been
invited to hear him at this time. -The
Young Married People's group at the
church will hear him speak at 8 p. m.
Saturday.
Mr. Lautenschlager, a Canadian,
was stationed at Tsinan in Shantung
Province and later moved to the in-
terior city of Chengtu with Cheeloo
University when its location was
changed. Since the beginning of the
war he has given half his time to
teaching and half to evangelistic
preaching in the high schools and
universities of Free China.
Army Students Ask
For Reading Lamps
Any faculty members, students or
Ann Arbor residents who have read-

ing lamps which they can spare are
urged to bring them to Army Head-
quarters for use by the ASTPR unit
on campus, Lt. Catherine James an-
nounced yesterday.
About 50 lamps are needed badly
by the ASTPR or A-12 trainees be-
cause their lighting facilities in the
barracks at 1550 Washtenaw are very
poor.
WAC Officer To Speak
To City Club Women
Presidents and officers of 55 wom-
en's clubs in Ann Arbor will meet at
8 p. m. today in the City hall to hear
Lt. Barbara Bethell, WAC recruiting
officer for this area, explain the work
of her organization.
The United States Army is urging
all eligible women to join the WAC
at once to serve in 155 non-combat
vital Army classification.
In Ann Arbor applications may be
made or information obtained at the
WAC recruiting office at 214 S
Main St.

Christmas Packages Arrive from Home

Mail call has an even greater attraction than usual for these doughboys dashing to the mail truck

loaded with Christmas presents from home for troops in Italy.
FOR CHRISTMAS CHEER:
Moms Club Plans To Present
Many Gifts to Servicemen

With Christmas less than a month
away, the Ann Arbor Moms Club is
planning to distribute gifts, help with.
dances and generally try to make the
holidays more cheerful for as many
soldiers as possible, Mrs. Sidney J.
Paup, president of the organization,
said yesterday.
The Moms are sending out more
than 700 Christmas cards, a great
many of them to soldiers overseas.
They are also giving one year maga-
zine subscriptions to all sons of the
members of the Moms Club. Reader's
Digest has been chosen as the maga-
zine, Mrs. Paup said, as a result of a
poll among the soldiers on campus
and letters from various servicemen.
Gifts will also be made to all the hos-
pitals in this area at Christmas time.
Flower Vases Given
Recently the Moms organization
furnished about 30 vases to the Wil-
low Run Hospital so that the patients
could have flowers by their bedsides.
They also bought ash trays for use in
the hospital and gave two magazine
subscriptions.
During the past few weeks the
members have made two trips to
Camp Waterloo near Jackson to sew
for the men stationed there. The
Detroiters Hear
Air Marshal

trips were made in Army trucks, and
the Army provided the noon meal.'
The 26 members who went on the last
trip mended and sewed insignias on
more than 250 garments.
Letters Thank Moms
Letters pour in to the club from
servicemen all over the world, Mrs.
Paup said. Most of these letters ex-
press appreciation for birthday re-
membrances or gifts to men in hos-
pitals. Although all vital information
is censored, Mrs. Paup remarked that
some of the letters give a good idea
of how our fighting men are living on
the battlefronts.
donors Under, 21
Need Permits
Women who are under 21 must
have the written permission of their
parents in order to donate blood at
the Blood Bank, Dec. 16 and 17, Jo-
sephine Fitzpatrick, '44, general
chairman of the Women's Blood
Bank announced recently.
Registration will begin 1 to 5 p. m.
Dec. 1 and last until Dec. 10 at the
League. Two hundred donors are
needed at that time.
The only requirement other than
the letter is that the donors must

up is necessary this year.

Taxes...
(Continued from Page 1)
war to save what we hold most dear
without financial secrifice.
"Taxation now, during the war, is
the easiest way to make that sacri-
fice."
But he was quick to caution against
a sales tax when Senators Byrd (D-
Va.) and Vandenberg (R.-Mich.) ask-
ed whether the Treasury would agree
to that form of taxation as a revenue
producer.
"Such a tax is completely lacking
in any relation to ability to pay,"
Morgenthau declared.
He estimated a 10 per cent federal
sales tax-potentially worth $6,000,-
000,000 in war-time revenue-prob-
ably would fall below $2,000,000,000
by the time it got to the Treasury be-
cause of the exemptions. He said
Congress probably would exempt
food, medicine, clothing and some
items now taxed separately.
It would cost the Treasury $18,000,-
000 and 6,000 additional employes to
administer the tax, he predicted.
Randolph Paul, Treasury tax ex-
pert, attacked the House-passed tax
bill as "a mountain of complexity for
a molehill of revenue." He said the
House bill-merging the present vic-
tory tax with regular inhcome taxes-
would make it almost impossible for
the average individual to understand
his income tax return blank.
Morgenthau repeated his argu-
ments for the $10,500,000,000 in new
taxes as a check-rein against infla-
tion, but said even if that weren't a
factor he still would recommend tak-
ing the same amount from taxpayers'
pockets because it is needed in "keep-
ing the national debt down."

'Think To Win'
Contest Brings
Huge Response
Campus Military Men
Offer More than 1,400
Entries to Headquarters
Figures on the number of sugges-
tions turned in for the Sixth Service
Command Think To Win contest in-
dicate that more than 12,000 sugges-
tions were received from the Detroit
district alone, Lt. Robert Wattles an-
nounced yesterday.
Lt. Malvin Flegal, attached to
Army Headquarters here, topped the
list of officers with 76 suggestions.
He also won first prize in competition
with all ASTP schools included in
this group, which is one of four in
the Detroit district.
Enlisted men on campus turned in
around 1,200 suggestions with Sgt.
Richard B. Matthews entering the

Sgt. W. R. Hart, also at Detroit Head-
quarters, won the prize for enlisted
men in the district with 110.
Contest winners will not be an-
nounced for a week or more, Lt. Wat-
tles said, because of the large number
of suggestions which must be read
and judged at Sixth Service Com-
mand Headquarters.

By BETTY KAMENS
In the Haughey home in Battle
Creek, history is being made. There
Mrs. Wilfred H. Haughey is keepingt
her own record of the second Worldi
War.
When the war and its various
phases scattered her eignt childrent
all over the world, keeping in touchl
with all of them assumed the propor-
tions of big business. But this prob-
lem was finally Sr Ived by Mrs.
Haughey and her typewriter.
She now writes one letter to the
entire family, making carbon copies
to be mailed to each one and keeping
the original on file. Then, when the
weekly letter comes from each mem-
ber of the family, she makes carbon
copies of that also, to be mailed with
her own to each one. By this method,
she not only hears from all of them
regularly, but they also hear from
each other, and they answer each
letter they have received in their
letter home.
Originals Bound
The original copy of all letters is
kept at home, and these will be
bound as a family record, and as a
sort of side light on the times in
which we live. Because each member
of the family is so busy doing his
part to win the war, this is an ex-
tremely satisfactory arrangement.
All eight of the Haughey children
are University alumni and all eight
are alumni of whom the University
might well be proud.
Three of the sons, Wilfred, Jr., '35;
David, '40; and Louis, '43; are now
in the armed services. Wilfred, a cap-
tain, is stationed in England as Exec-
utive Officer of his Battalion. David,
also a captain, is an instructor in
radar to Officer Candidates at Camp

Club will meet at 6:15 p.m. today
in front of Barbour Gym for their
first ride as a club. Members are
urged to be at the appointed place
on time.

what he hopes will be destroyer duty.
The other three Haughey sons are
engaged in war work. Clifton, '36,
is Naval Architect in charge of Kai-
ser's Vancouver Yard. He has re-
centlydesignedra pontoon, which was
christened "Little Audry," to assist in
launching the carriers and to elimi-
nate the necessity of extending the
ways.
Son Heads Draftsmen
With Clifton in Vancouver is Phil-
lip C., '37, who is chief draftsman of
the Vancouver Yard Office and is be-
ing held responsible for the work of
fifty draftsmen.
Charles, '43, a chemical engineer
and metallurgist, has been working
since graduation in the Dodge-
Chrysler Corporation inra new plant
which makes engines for bombers.
As Mrs. Haughey says, the life of
the Haughey family has been "an in-
teresting life, rich in contacts, rich in
rewards."

Stephen Fritchman, editor of "The
Christian Register," who will speak

Haughey Family Keeps Record
Of World War II in Letters

DETROIT, Nov. 29. - (P) - After
Germany has been pounded out of
the war Japan will be in for an even
greater aerial licking.
That was the message Air Marshal
Sir William Lawrie Welsh, Air Staff
Commander of the British Joint Staff
Mission, brought to members of the
Economic Club of Detroit today.
The British Air Marshal pictured
Germany as a country that has lost
all hope of victory and one which
"has every reason to believe there is
worse to come."
"It is filled with sullen, hostile,
foreign slaves waiting their moment,"
he said.
"Much of the steel production of
the country (Germany) has been des-
troyed," he said, "and transporta-
tion facilities and public utilities very
seriously damaged.
Sir William said that a system of
priorities determines which areas
shall be bombed. The bomber com-
mand rejoices, he added, when a fac-
tory is reconstructed, for it means
that the industry is anchored and can
be hit again and again just before it is
completely rebuilt.
Technic to Appear
On Campus Today
The Michigan Technic, oldest en-
gineering magazine in the United
States, will be on sale today in the
Engineering Arch.

ing exclusively to engineers, the mag-

tire student body.

ier, Editor-in-Chief; John Linker, As-
sistant Editor; Jack Kelso, Managing
Editor; Bill Powers, Business Mana-
ger; John DeBoer, Photographer;
