Women, too, who once trod th
campus lawns, are now doing thei
bit for Uncle Sammy. Take, for in
stance, Shirley Condit and Jean Tay
ior who received their silver wing
this month after graduating fro
the WASP training school in Sweet
water, Tex. WASP, by the way
stands f or Women's Airforce Servic
Pilots. Miss Condit was a member o
Phi Theta Kappa sorority while i
Ann Arbor and Miss -Taylor was
member of Delta Gamma sorority.
Their training consisted of fligh
experience in all type Army trainers
instrument drill on the land-boun
"Link," hours of class-room instruc
tion in navigation, theory of flight
map reading, military customs- an
courtesies. They also underwen
daily calisthenics which would give
a flaccid male aching muscles, and
miles of precise, military drill. To
qualify for WASP training the girl
were required to pass a tough physi-
cal examination, be between the ages
of 21 and 34 and have logged a mini-
mum of 35 hours pilot time.
Stepping up its preparations to
lambast the'axis, the Army Air For-

its Central Instructors School for
Bombardiers at Carlsbad, N.M. In-
cluded is Second Lieut. Thomas W.
Coleman, Jr., of Highland Park,
Mich., and former student of the

at Midland, Texas, AAF, where he
is an instructor.
A graduate of the University in
1940, Sgt. Frederick C. Pearce was
a member of the "guinea pig" group
of "Flight X" at Hondo Field. Set
up on an experimental basis back in
January, the Flight X project proved
highly successful, and recently the
"guinea pig" class of eight completed
the course and was rewarded the
coveted wings of the aerial naviga-
tor. When the school's request is
approved by higher authority, they
will receive flight officer's commis-
sions and will probably be trans-

Yule Holidays
Be Staggered
WASHINGTON -QP)- Many col-
tege and prep school students will get
a month's vacation in the Christmas-
New Year holiday season if educa-
Lional institutions follow requests
made today by the Office of Defense
The ODT asked that holiday va-
cations start not later than Dec. 15
and terminate not before Jan. 11,
1944, to eliminate expected rushes on
railroads and bus lines. If schools
can not comply with the extended va-
cation request, the ODT urged that
vacations start and end in mid-week,
to eliminate week-end traffic jams.1
Starts here Dec. 21
The University of Michigan had
the problem of holiday travel in mind
when it arranged the school calendar
for the coming year, Dr. Frank Rob-
bins, assistant to the president, said
today, in commenting on the ODT re-
Christmas vacation for University
civilian students will begin on Tues-
