To Red Cross
Every Serviceman Will Have
Christmas Boxes as Presents;
Each House Should Give One
In order that every man in ser-
vice, whether sick or well, may have;
a present at Christmas time, Univer-
sity women have been asked to do-
nate boxes, according to Monna
Heath, '44, President of the Wo-
men's War Council.
This drive is being sponsored by
the War Council in conjunction with
the American Red Cross of Ann
Arbor. It will be done under the
auspices of the Camp and Hospital
Every house on campus has been
asked to contribute at least one box.
The minimum cost of each box
should be $1.00, and the maximum
cost, $2. The packages should be
wrapped plainly, but with Christmas
stickers and seals so that they will
look like gifts.
The name and address of the donor
or donors should be enclosed in the
box. All boxes must be brought to
Miss McCormick's office in the
League by Dec. 17.
Some of the suggestions offered by
Miss Heath in her letter to the house
'presidents for the contents of the
boxes are packs of cards, cigarettes,
white or GI handkerchiefs, station-
cry, toilet articles, and billfolds.
"Each house is being asked to give
at least one box, but the more boxes
the better. This is a real chance for
us to show our servicemen personally
how grateful we are for all that they
are doing for us," Miss Heath ex-

The "Bond Bombers" of Junior

as slackers, shirkers, or parasites, in
Michigan's first women's ice-hockey
game between halves of the Mich-

The game is the coed's attempt to
poitray the dire consequences of the

over nearly everything else on cain-
pus," said Peg Weiss; '45, coach of
the "Bombers." "Why not the hockey

other things we'd like to take over

up to the women of Michigan to come

the team is only a symbol. We could
never get a real, living Lizard into
an ice-hockey game!"
The team will practice at the Coli-
seum at 1:30 tomorrow. Anyone in-
terested in getting into the game who
has not yet reported in urged to come
to the rink at that time. "No skating
ability is necessary," Peg Weiss in-
sists. "Just 'nerve'."
The game will be played with
brooms and a block of wood and,
while rules for the game have not
been drastically altered. they have
been touched up a bit. Penalties will
be shortened to one minute, and will
include swatting, calling names and
anything else which might obstruct
the game.

Women Lauded
As Cooperators
In Blood Bank
"The response of women to donate
blood for the December Blood Bank
was excellent in every way," accord-
ing to Josephine Fitzpatrick, '46,
chairman of the Women's Blood
Bank, recently.
"I don't want the girls to feel that
their blood isn't needed, just because
theĀ° appointments made last week
have been cancelled. There will be
another Blood Bank in January, and
I hope that all the women will sign
up again," continued Miss Fitzpat-
Postcards have been sent /to the
women who signed up telling them
of the cancellations. Girls may call
for their written parental consent at
Miss McCormick's office in the
Four hundred soldiers from Fort
Custer volunteered their blood to the
Detroit mobile unit of the Red Cross
as a Christmas present. Since the
mobile unit must stay within a
radius of 40 miles from its base,
arrangements were made in Detroit
to have the soldiers meet the mobile
unit when it was in Ann Arbor Dec.
16 and 17.

Proxy Parents
Can 'Staned- In'
For Mothers
Ann Arbor mothers who haven't
been able to leave their homes for
weeks because of having no help to
stay with young children, can give a
long sigh of relief. The Proxy Par-
ents Corps, composed of Michigan
coeds, will come to the rescue.
The Proxy Parents are a subdivi-
sion of the League's Child Care Com-
mittee, specifically organized for
assistance to harassed housewives.
Many of these volunteers, according
to Jo Ann Peterson, '44, chairman,
have had experience with babies and
young children.
Proxy Parents are payed thirty
cents an hour for their services. At
night the employers must make some
provision for their helpers getting
home. Corps members are available
for the assistance of mothers at all
hours of the day and evening and
may be obtained by calling the
League, 23251, or Miss Peterson, 4089.
"The demand for Proxy Parents,"
Miss Peterson emphasized, "is often
larger than the supply." Women
who wish to enlist in the group
should get in touch with Miss Peter-
son or register at the undergraduate
office in the League.

dance, to be held from 9 p.m. to mid-

Singers Patty Dupont and Billy
Leighton will entertain with vocal

ment, "Hungarian Rhapsody," re-

Surgical Dressings
Quarters Enlarged
No one shall be turned away from
the Surgical Dressings room in the
League because of lack of room in
the future, according to Jean Whit-
temore, '44, head of the unit, for the
large turnouts have caused the over-
flow to be moved into the Kalamazoo
With Christmas vacation coming,
Miss Whittemore urges that every
volunteer try to come in to work
extra hours as there is a constant
demand for surgical dressings Irom
the front.
Laundry Needs
Coed Workers
Wages To Be Given Helpers
Who Volunteer in Emergency
"The University Laundry is urging
more coeds to sign up for work so
that larger orders can be accepted
and the Ann Arbor laundry problem
at least partially solved," Gerry Sta-
dleman, '44, chairman of the project,
said yesterday.
53c an hour is paid for laundry
work and University students are
asked to handle only clean material.
Two hours a week is the minimum
time which any girl may work. These
hours must be at the same time every
week and excused absences may be
obtaiqed only through Miss Ethel
McCormick, director of undergrad-
uate activities, at the League.
Workers are advised to wear blous-
es rather than sweaters as the work'
rooms become rather warm. Ordi-
nary school shoes and skirts are
suitable for the work.
"Dependability and conscientious-
ness are prerequisites for all work-
ers," Miss Stadleman said. "No girl
is wanted who will not work every
week and do a creditable job."
