Celebration

Dance Band Has Played for Union Parties
Since 1938; Gained Student Recognition
At New Haven Yale-Michigan Football Game
e W a ~ n e - I c g a n O~t 'a m

Current hits and songs appropriate
to the "Auld Lang Syne" spirit will
be played by Bill Sawyer and his
orchestra for the New Year's Eve
"Final Spree of '43" to be held from
9 p.m. to 1 a.m. in Waterman Gym.
Tickets for the dance will be sold
from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. today at the
Union.
This year marks the fifth in the
band's history as an established cam-
pus dance orchestra. Not until 1938
did Sawyer gain campus recognition,
and then he had to go to New Haven
for the '38 Yale-Mich. football game
to be heard by the visiting Michigan
student body.
Prior to that time, Sawyer had
played for various fraternity and class
parties, but in 1938 Stanford Walz,
manager of the Union, asked Sawyer
to play for the Union dances and
the orchestra gained its present po-
sition.
When Sawyer came to college as a
freshman, he organized a new or-
chestra, by the simple device of post-
ing a notice requesting five interested
freshmen to contact him. Since the
beginning of the venture some 60 of
the orchestra's members have grad-
uated from the University. Sawyer
said that he believes his is the only
organization in any, educational in-
stitution where students can get ex-
perience and instruction in reading
professional scores while attending
college.
The war has effected a rapid turn-
over in band personnel. The orches-
tra has lost 63 players to the armed
forces, 32 of whom have gone since
January 1, 1943, but there is still a
long waiting list of musicians who
want to play in the orchestra, Sawyer
said.
Sawyer pnd his orchestra have been
heard over most of -the major net-
works, and have appeared on the
Fitch Bandwagon. Sawyer's activi-
ties have not been limited to dance
music alone. He. is the director of
the Woman's Glee Club, the Soldier's
Choir, and his orchestra is aiding in
the preparation of the "Messiah."
The orchestra has presented several

USO To Hold
Holiday Parties
For Servicemen
Several Christmas parties for the
servicemen will be given during the
holiday season at Harris Hall, the
new USO center.
Beginning with a Christmas Eve
party, from 9:30 p.m. to midnight on
Dec. 24, the USO will hold three
functions for those men who must
remain on campus during the holi-
days. At this Christmas Eve party
there will be a Christmas tree and
gifts for the servicemen.
On Christmas Day, the men may
go over to Harris Hall for a tea dance
that will begin at 2 p.m. and con-
tinue through the evening. Refresh-
ments for this dance will be fur-
nished by a group of Ann Arbor
women.
Climaxing the holiday season will
be a formal dance given on New
Year's Eve in the ballroom of Harris
Hall. The dance will begin at 8:30
p.m. and continue until 12:30 a.m.
University coeds who will stay here
during the holidays and who are
Junior Hostesses are urged to go to
Harris Hall and participate in these
functions.
The new hours for the USO are
10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, open later
for dances and special functions.
Servicemen may come over to the
building at any time during the
hours, to use the facilities available.
concerts in Hill Auditorium, and re-
cently played Gershwin's "Rhapsody
in Blue" in the Masonic Hall in De-
troit.
The orchestra will return from an
extensive tour, during which they
will have made nine consecutive ap-
pearances, to play for the campus
New Year's Eve dance.

Mosher Hall
Heads Bond,
Stamp Drive
Mosher Hall is soaring over the Pa-
cific virtually unaccompanied on Ju-
nior Girls Project's war-stamp-and-
bond campaign poster on the League
bulletin board.
The poster put up by the JGP pos-
ter committee, headed by Marcia
Sharpe, '44A, is a large drawing of the
Pacific Ocean and surrounding ter-
ritory. Each large women's residence
house on campus has an airplane tak-
ing off from Ann Arbor's longitude
and headed toward Tokyo. Each
stamp bought in a house moves its
plane toward Hirohito.
The committee points out, however,
that returns are as yet incomplete for
the month of December, and the pi-
lots will not be in a position to give
their true bearings until after vaca-
tion.
The poster is emphasis for JGP's
'43-'44 bond and stamp campaign
which sets as its goal $30,000.
Bandage Unit
Remains Open'
Attendance Falls Off; 1,300
Hours Given During Semester
For the following two weeks women
in Ann Arbor will have the opportun-
ity to work at Surgical Dressings in
the Rackham Building from 1 p.m. to
4 p.m. Wednesday and Friday and
from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Wednes-
day and Thursday, as the League
Unit will be closed until January 5
at 1 p.m.
The closing of the League Unit Fri-
day showed a total of 1,300 hours
spent by the coeds at the Surgical
Dressings rooms this semester. The
attendance increased after the edit-
orials on women in war work appear-
ed in The Daily, but have decreased
in the past few weeks, announced
Jean Whittimore, head of the League
Unit.
Miss Whittimore continued, "There
has been no decrease in the need for
the dressings, however. Every letter

Non-Campus
Sales Banned
Students will have to buy war
stamps and bonds to reach the
$30,000 goal for the year set by Jun-
ior Girls' Project, as the JGP Central
Committee has banned the system
of having friends and relatives "back
home" send in bond numbers to raise
house totals, it was announced by
Deborah Parry, '45, JGP chairman.-
JGP's '43-'44 plan is to urge every
civilian student to buy at least $1 a
month's worth of war stamps fromi
money which would otherwise be,
spent for luxuries.
"Many houses last year entered the
war stamp and bond competition
with bonds bought by others and
neglected the real purpose of the1
drive, to divert student spending into
helping the war effort and keeping;
down Ann Arbor's already exorbitant
prices," Peg Weiss, '44, JGP publicity1
chairman, said yesterday. "This year1
we're working toward our goal the,
hard way, but the Central Committee
believes it the best way."
Honor Societies To
Hold Carolling Party
Members of the five women's hon-
or societies on campus will serenade
with Christmas carols from 8:30 to
11 p.m. Monday.
Gerry Stadelman, Mortar Board,
will have charge of the carolers.
Members of Scroll, Wyvern, Senior
Society, and Alpha Lambda Delta
will participate in the singing.
The home of President Ruthven,
Health Service, University Hospital,
Women's Dorms, East and West
Quads, and the Law Quadrangle will
be serenaded.
Carolers must meet at 8:15 p.m. in.
the lobby of the League.
which we receive from hospitals in
Europe and other battlegrounds stress
the necessity for many more surgical
dressings."
"Accurate and careful work is re-
quired in making these dressings,"
stated Miss Whittemore. "After the'
inspection by the Unit supervisor the
packages of dressings are not opened
again until they reach their destina-
tion."

civilian WAC resrui tinI Ouim .
and officers of various civic organi-
zations throughout the state will re-
ceive special invitations to the show
from Mayor Young. Twenty-five
hundred tickets will be distributed
over the state, and 2,500 will be re-
served- for distribution in this area.
Miss Ethel McCormick, social director
of women at the League has been
placed in charge of a bloc of 5001
tickets. Members of the faculty and
students should make immediate ap-
plication to her for these tickets.
Col. Hobby was appointed director
of the WAAC's on May 15, 1942, by
Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson
after its creation was approved by
Congress May 14, and has remained
director since its reorganization as.
the Women's Army Corps.
The purpose of the recruiting show.
Barnes said, is to inform the public
concerning the activities and aims of
the WAC. He stressed the fact that
"educational work is essential before
any campaign to obtain the large
number of women needed to carry on
this war is possible." He added that
the WAC recruiting show to be pro-
duced in Hill Auditorium will be the
largest and most elaborate show of
its kind to have been presented.
