Dressing Unit
To Take Over

Mary Anne Olson Is Appointed
Women's Editor of The Daily

WAA's Swim





"Now that the Surgical Dressing
Unit has the Kalamazoo Room in the
League, in addition toctheir regular
quarters, we are expecting a larger
turnout than ever of workers for the
coming weeks," Jean Whittemore,
'44, head of the Unit, stated recently.
This new room makes it possible
for the Unit to employ many more
girls than are coming regularly to
work. With five weeks exams over
and bandages still as important as
ever, Miss Whittemore urged that
every girl keep her pledge of working
at least two hours every week.
The rooms will be open from 1 p.m.
until 5 p.m. on Wednesday and
Thursday and from 1 p.m. until 4
p.m. on Friday.
Many girls have appeared only
one or two times since they have
signed up, Miss Whittemore stated.
The attendance has dropped within
the last week although there was a
large increase during the week of the
editorials on women on the campus
in wartime. She hopes that all the
women on the campus will respond to
this urgent need by coming in every
week for several hours.
If daytime hours are inconvenient
or filled, volunteer workers may work
air rolling cotton pads in Rackham
Building from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.. on
Wednesday and Thursday nights.
Mosher Will Battle
Jordan Tomorrow
For Volleyball Title
Mosher and Jordan, both from
"Dormitory Hill," will face each other
at 5:20 p.m. tomorrow "in Barbour
Gym in the finals of the volleyball
tournament conducted by the WAA,
and one of the dorms will find itself
wearing the victor's crown for the
1943-44 school year.
Both teams are raring to go in this
final tilt, as Mary Ann Eibler, '45Ed,
has her Mosher charges well mobil-
ized and Margaret Robinson, '47, has
decked° her Jordan crew out in sweat
shirts with the name Jordan splashed
all over the front of them.
At 5:20 p.m. Tuesday the team
which ends up on the bottom of the'
heap will engage Stockwell, winner of
the secondary tourney in a battle for
second place. Although the Stockwell
team suffered a defeat early in the
season, Helen Massonn, '46Ed., has
her team in readiness for the brawl.
Stockwell defeated Kappa Kappa
Gamma in the finals of the "B"
tournament last week to gain the
coveted round, and Mosher and Jor-
dan defeated Pi Beta Phi and Martha
Cook respectively to enter the finals
of the "A" tournament.

Program Plans
The WAA Swim Club will meet for
the second time this season at 7:30
p.m. Wednesday at Barbour gymna-
sium, according to Marie Cassetari,
'44, club manager.
"There are no definite qualifica-
tions for membership at the present
time. Anyone who likes to swim and
who is interested in having a good
time in the water is urged to come.
In fact, if any girl really wants to
join the club but doesn't know how
to swim, I will give her instructions,"
Miss Cassetari explained.
To Use Barbour Pool
This is the first season that the
club will use the Barbour pool. In
previous years the Union pool has al-
ways been available for the meetings.
Because the pool in Barbour is not
as deep as the Union pool, no diving
will be done in the club. Women may
rent tank suits at Baibour Gym or if
they prefer, may bring their own
suits, providing they are not made of
To Play Water Polo
"As yet, our club hasn't been or-
ganized fully. We want the members
to make suggestions as to what they
would like to do before we formulate
any more definite program," Miss
Cassetari commented.
Among the suggestions that have
been made are that the club play
volleyball and polo-in the water, of
course. One of the more popular
activities in the water is water ballet.
Water ballet requires practice and
teamwork; but the results are pleas-
ing. Simple geometric designs can
be formed to a rhythmic beat.
Greta Lee Krantz, '46, of Evanston,
Ill., was initiated into Pi Beta Phi
Sorority Tuesday.

Bond Bombers
Leave Lizards
Helpless on Ice
The "Bond Bombers" crushed the
"Lounge Lizards" beneath their fig-
ure skates as JGP's publicity com-
mittee took over the ice-hockey rink
with a sweep (of their brooms) and,
it hopes, established women's ice-
hockey as the world of sports' coun-
terattack on the new draft quota in a
game that took place between the
halves of the Michigan-London A.C.
match at 8 p.m. yesterday at the
The "Bombers'" center proved to
be the star of the show. John Dar-
gan, of Company E, set the audience
rolling in the bleachers with his
feminine attire and erratic skating,
while Marion Hrebek, '44, as the
"Lizards'" center, symbolized the
coed parasite with one Martha Cook
corridor's worth of rhinestones.
Cathy Jones, '45, kept the team on
its feet with artificial respiration,
while Fran Goldberg, '46, was com-
mentator, assisted by Claire Macau-
ley, '46, Alicent Epps, '46, and Lenore
Chaice, '46. Peg Weiss, '45, repre-
sented the referee as a skater of
thirty years ago.
Priscilla Hedges and Uditta Maur-
au, '45, Dorothy Stefany and Nancy
Wilkes, '44, and Terry Schulz, '47,
were "Bombers," while Miss Hrebek,
Judy Ruetenik, Georgianna Leslie,
kay McFee, Betty Wilson and Eunice
Woldhausen, '45, and Sarah Lee
Dunn, '47, comprised the "Lizards"
Armed with shoulder pads, catch-
ers' chest-protectors and masks, and
football helmets, as well as fur coats
to keep out the icy winds of the Coli-
seum, the "Lizards" made a sad spec-
tacle. "Bombers" were dressed to
represent different types of campus

'Soldier' Boxes

Packages for Men in Service
"Christmas boxes for servicemen
must be turned in at the League by
Friday," Monna Heath, '44, President
of the Women's War Council, has an-
All University women have been
asked to cooperate with the American
Red Cross in donating these Christ-
mas boxes, which will be given to ser-
vice men.
The minimum cost of each box
should be $1; and the maximum has
been set at $2. The packages should
be wrapped simply but with some
Christmas touch.
The boxes may include all sorts of
little gifts. Some of which might be
packs of cards, cigarettes, handker-
chiefs, or even toilet articles. Any-
thing can be included which the girls
feel would be useful to a man in the
The name and address of the do-
nors should be enclosed in the pack-
age and then brought to Miss Mc-
Cormick's office in the League.
Miss Heath has emphasized in her
appeal to women's house presidents,
"This is really a worthwhile cause.
It is a chance for you women to ex-
press your gratitude personally to
our service men for the job they are
doing for us."

workers, andJunior Girls' Project.
The teams' goals were symbolized
with posters by Marcia Sharpe, '45,
and Georgianna Leslie, '45. "Bomb-
ers'" goal was JGP's own $30,000 in
war stamps and bonds, while "Liz-
ards" drove toward a picture of Hit-
ler and Hirohito and Jewelry, candy,
and cokes, with the inscription,
"Help the Axis."

University Laundry
Still Requires Coeds
For Morning Work
"The response of University coeds
to our request for laundry workers
has been very good," Gerry Stadle-
man, '44, chairman of the project, an-
nounced yesterday.
"We still need girls to work in the
morning Monday through Friday, but
the quota for afternoon workers has
been filled," Miss Stadleman added.
"However, we will put the names of
all interested coeds on a waiting list
and will call them when they are
Workers are advised to wear blous-
es rather than sweaters, and ordinary
school skirts and shoes. Two hours a
week is the minimum time each girl
may work in one week.
