Army To Get
Two Additional
Days' Vacation
There will be no classes for Army
personnel on campus Dec. 24 and 25
or on New Year's Day, Army head-
quarters announced yesterday.
A previous announcement had said
that Christmas Day would be the
only one on which classes would not
be held. The new arrangement pro-
vides for two extra days' vacation
during the holiday period.
Army personnel will also be per-
mitted to work at railroad stations,
freight houses and terminals hand-
ling express, mail and parcel post
packages providing civilian help is

Quality Control
Course Opens
Enrollment Is Large
In ESMWT Classes
One hundred and eighty-nine in-
dustrial employes and executives will
attend the opening meeting of a class
in Statistical Method Applied to
Quality Control today at the Rack-
ham Building, Detroit.
The course, which is under the
Engineering, Science and Manage-
ment War Training program, will run
for eight days and cover 56 hours
of work.
The group of executives is just
attending the first class meeting,
while 123 people have enrolled for the
full course.
Prof. Charles B. Gordy of the
Mechanical Engineering Department,
has organized the course, assisted by
Prof. Cecil C. Craig of the Mathe-
matics Department, and Prof. Olin W.
Blackett of the School of Business
Seven additional instructors will
come from industries and govern-
mental agencies all over the country
to teach special sections of the lass.

USO Duties Explained
At the recent meeting for prospec-
tive hostesses, Miss Penelope M.
Pearl, clinical assistant of the Insti-
tute of Human Adjustment, Mrs.
Frank Legg, senior hostess, and Miss
Ethel McCormick, social director of
the League, spoke on the function
and purposes of the USO and the
duties of the junior hostesses. Miss
Jean Gaffney, '46, student chairman
of the League USO committee and
Miss Helen Bonegan, president of the
Ann Arbor USO, also gave short
All of the speakers stressed the
fact that the primary purpose of the
USO center is to provide a "home
away from home" for members of the
armed forces. It is up to the junior;
hostesses to help create and main-
tain a homelike atmosphere, they
said. In order to do this they must
be friendly but not forward and
must divine the needs of the men
coming to the center.
No Dates at Dance Permitted
If a serviceman wants to dance,
"play games, write letters, read or just
sit and talk, it is up to the hostess to
find it out and see that he has the
opportunity. "Be friendly," was the
advice, "and at the dances don't
congregate in a little group, scatter.
Ask the men to dance if they seem
shy and don't monopolize the popu-
lar ones."
Good grooming is essential, and a
slight touch of perfume is requested'
by the servicemen. No sweaters are
to be worn, an attractive date dress'
being preferred. "Don't hesitate to
wear the same dress frequently,"
Miss McCormick said, "it will help
the servicemen identify you."
USO Dedication
Will Be Today
The dedication ceremonies to offi-
cially open Harris Hall, new Ann
Arbor USO center, will be held at
3 p.m. today in the newly redecorated
Preceding the ceremony will be

The Army ASTP band and the
Company A choir will supply the
music on the program. I. B. Rhodes,
regional executive director of the
USO and Mayor L. J. Young will give
brief addresses to the servicemen.
Replies will be made by Capt. Rich-
ard A. Cassidy and Col. Frederick
Rogers of the Navy and Army respec-
Rabbi J. M. Cohen will . read the
invocation, and the Rev. Warren
Peek will give the benediction. The

State Suggests
Alid to Children
LANSING, Dec. 10-(P)-Governor
Kelly's Youth Guidance Legislative
Survey Committee today called for
statewide service in delinquency pre-
vention when it adopted a resolution
recommending assistance for malad-
justed children through cooperative
action by schools, child care and
welfare agencies and the juvenile
The resolution, presented by Pro-
bate Judge Arthur E. Moore of Pon-
tiac, states that a maladjusted child
may later develop into a delinquent
youth, and asserted that the children
should be helped when they are very
young. It called for training of
teachers to recognize early symptoms
of maladjustment and for employ-
ment of experienced social service
and health workers to help correct

Helping in the program to protect
California's war industries from de-
struction by flash floods is Beth
O'Roke, a University graduate and1
daughter of Prof. Earl C. O'Roke, of1
the zoology department.,
In a recent letter to several of her,
professors, Miss O'Roke described:
the work she is doing in the govern-
ment's flood control program. She
is in the hydraulics section of the
programming division.
Partial Post-War Planning
"'Programming' here means pre-
liminary surveys, designs, cost esti-
mates, and reports for Congress. It
is partially post-war planning. The
engineering for a large harbor and
flood control program which will
absorb thousands of the returning
Army and Navy men must be ready,"
she wrote.
"We are in the 'Dam Operation'
room, surrounded by phones, tele-
types, and a prospective short wave
unit. We figure out how much water
goes where when. Sometimes we
pore over old records. Some rancher
began recording rainfall 73 years ago
in San Berdo. He skipped a few
days, however, when 'cow kicked over
gage,' or 'flood covered the durned
Coeds To Pack
Holiday Boxes
Christmas Gifts To Go
To All Men in Service
University women have been asked
by Mrs. John Worley, chairman of
the American Red Cross of Ann Ar-
bor, to share their Christmas spirit
with servicemen everywhere by don-
ating Christmas boxes.
The aim of the drive is for every
man in the service, whether sick or
well, to have a present at Christmas
time. The Women's War Council, of
which Monna Heath, '44, is president,
is cooperating with the Red Cross in
this activity.
To give the drive its impetus, Miss
Heath has sent letters to all house
presidents, urging that their respec-
tive houses donate at least one box.
The giving of these boxes is not lim-
ited to one box from each house;
any girl or group of girls may donate
a box.
The packages should be wrapped
plainly, but with Christmas stickers,
seals, or ribbons so that they will
look like gay Christmas gifts. The
minimum cost of each box has been
set at $1, and the maximum at $2.
The deadline for turning in the
boxes is Thursday. The boxes are
to be taken to Miss McCormick's of-
fice in the League, and the name
and address of the donor or donors
should be enclosed in the package.
As suitable articles to include in
these boxes, Miss Heath has suggest-
ed cigarettes, stationery, handker-
chiefs-GI or white, billfolds, packs
of cards, toilet articles, tooth powder,
soap or razor blades.
Lt. Raymond Moore, Educational
Officer attached to the V-12 unit
here, was transferred to the Great
Lakes Naval Hospital for treatment.

"They say that during floods we
really work. Then the men scattert

have trucks ready to Paul Revere it
down through the valleys should an
older dam not hold. They phone or
radio in reports and we fill in dam

Hitler Needs Rainmaker
"And, this year, with Lockheed in
the middle of Tojunga Wash; San
Bernardino Air Depot plumb in Lytle
Creek; and Kaiser in the Santa Ana
River; all the Army and Navy bases,
and vital bridges in flood areas, there
mustn't be any slips. Hitler should
hire himself a good rainmaker," the
letter concludes.
After graduating from the School
of Architecture in June, 1941, with
a degree in design, Miss O'Roke
spent a year drafting and designing*
store layouts for a Detroit depart-
ment store.
Took 13-Week Course
In July 1942, she began a thirteen-
week course in surveying, topogra-
phic mapping and photogrammetry
offered on campus under the Engi-
neering, Science, and Management
War Training, program.
Her first assignment after com-
pleting the intensive course took her
to Flagstaff, Ariz., where she worked
on a confidential construction pro-
gram which was carried on 8,000 feet
above sea level.
While at the University, Miss
O'Roke was active in affairs at the
League, including the positions of
executive secretary of Pan-Hellenic,
vice-president of the League, and
membership in Mortarboard and
Kappa Kappa Gamma.
Other members of this special
ESMWT course have also obtained
interesting positions. One of the
girls is the final inspector of the
electrical wiring of the bombers at
Willow Run, while another is a mem-
b'er of the Women's Ferry Command.
Twenty women graduated in Miss
O'Roke's class, and since then an
additional twenty have been trained.
The course was open only to college
