spoke to a group of 1,000 women
meeting in the Hotel enn1syvania in

Dr. Burns, who was instrumental
in formulating th ill-fated C'radle-

Publicity Committee Takes to
Ice at Hockey Opener Saturday
The "Bond Bombers" will make
their original contribution to the an-
nuals of ice-hockey when the Junior
Girls' Project publicity committee
takes to the ice against an unknown
opponent at the half of the hockey
opener at 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 11,

"Though the 'Bombers' aren't the
first to play hockey with brooms and
a basketball," Peg Weiss, '45, JGP
publicity chairman, said yesterday,
''we can guarantee it wil be original,
if nothing else.
JGP Goal Is $30,000
"Goals will represent opposite at-
titudes of contribution to the war ef-
fort on the part of coeds, with JGP
driving toward its $30,000 mark for
the year, while players will model the
lastest in hockey gear.
"As to individual playing ability
and teamwork, your guess is as good,
as ours. If the game' turns out to
be amusing, that's fine, because there
isn't much we can do about it."
' Skit To Be Featured
Actually the affair will take on
the form of a skit to emphasize the
opening of JGP's campaign to urge
every student to buy at least one
dollar's worth of war stamps each
month during the year.
The drive is now under way
through JGP representatives in dorm-
itories and auxiliary dormitories, sor-
ority houses, and league houses, and
booths have been set up in University
