Mitchell and the Michibomber

When you go to the Michibomber
carnival Saturday, March 11, you
won't be able to -see its originator,
because he's so small he's always fly-
ing into a gremlin's mouth and
spending hours getting out because
gremlins have such small cracks be-
tween their teeth.
You might not see the gremlins
either, because when ..the Michi-
bomber is all ready to. take off the
gremlins will be so ashamed that
they weren't able to plugthe con-,
trols that they'll leave, }and never
again come to Michigan.~
Mick, the Airplane
And here we have the creature
responsible for the affair, Mitchell
Bomber himself. Mitchell, or Mick,
which we always call him-for short,
is a little airplane. He used to live in
his hangar in Ed Zalenski's hair, but
since Zalenski has left. Michigan
Mick has been hovering around the
sports desk, living in the unused
style-books. Once in awhile he flies
up to the Women's Desk, and on one
of his latest' trips he told .us the
story of his adventures in setting up
the Michibomber.
From the day Mick got tired play-
ing roller-coaster on Dorothy Dar-
nall's eyelashes and announced to
the campus there would be a Michi-
bomber, difficulties followed him
around like a tailwind.
Enter the tVillain!
The difficulties were usually in the
form of gremlins, who first of all
sent regiments to every house and,
company on campus to 'dissuade the
organizations from cooperating with
Mick. In some places the gremlins
were successful . . . in. others they
slowed up the planning.
But in general, Mick won out, and
started to work on the Miehibomber

Naval Officers
To Interview
Coeds at League
WAVES' Recruiting Drive in
Region To Include Candidates
For Many Types of Positions
In order to interview prospective
WAVES, Lt. (.g.) Helen M. Stewart
and Alene Kasten, Sp. (R) 3/c of the
Women's Reserve of the United
States Navy will be stationed Wed-
nesday and Thursday at the Michi-
gan League.
The Navy is very much interested
in recruiting a large number of'
women from this territory, to release
men for active sea duty. Both enlist-
ed women and officer candidates are
needed at the present time.
Requirements for officer candi-
dates are more inclusive than those
for enlisted women. An officer can-
didate must have a degree from an
accredited college and make a satis-
factory score in the Officer's Qualifi-
cation Test. After six months' ser-
vice enlisted women may apply for a
commission with a recommendation
from their commanding officer.
Candidates Train at Smith
WAVES officer candidates take
their training at Smith College,
Northampton, Mass., while more ad-
vanced and intensive, officer indoc-
trination is very similar to that
given enlisted women.
Officer candidates join WAVES
as apprentice seamen, and continue
in this status for the first month of
their indoctrination. They then
qualify as Reserve Midshipmen and
continue at Smith for a second
month. Upon the successful comple-
tion of the course, they receive their
commissions and are ordered either
to a duty station in supervisory,
technical or administrative; posts or
to advanced training.
Advanced training'courses varying
in length from two months to a year
open the door to some of the most
interesting and important positions
in the Navy.
May Study Transportatien
Women who attend the Supply
School study disbursing and trans-
portation as well as. suply before
assuming responsible positions in the
business activities of the Navy. Aer-
ologists who have completed the nine
months' graduate course' in aero-
logical engineering are assigned to
air stations in weather centrals.
Officers who are trained in the
Japanese language will, upon com-
pletion of their course, be able to
read and write simple Japanese,
speak the language clearly in con-
versation or over the microphone,
and to understand it when heard
over the radio. Women selected for
training as air navigation instructors
take the same course as the male
instructors at the school, including
a certain number of hours in the


Senior Society
Pins Aegean'


Senior Society, independent wo-
men's honorary, may have initiated
some unusual personalities in its
seven-year history, but certainly its
treasurer neyer before tried to place
the pin of the Society onto the volu-
minous folds of the toga of a gray-
bearded Shakespearean character.
Blanche Holpar, '44, became a
member of the Society in between
acts of Play Production's "Comedy
of Errors" Thursday night. Miss
Holpar played Aegean in the pre-
In toga, tights, sandals, wig, beard
and greasepaint, Miss Holpar may
have felt a bit conspicuous, but
thanks to the ancient Aegean's taste
in clothes, her costume actually con-
formed to the regulations of the
Society, which specify that the new
initiates should wear "white or pas-
tel." The toga was light blue.
Also initiated into Senior Society
Thursday night were "ordinary mor-
tals" Rosalie Bruno, Phyllis Buck,
Joan Clark, Dorothy Darnall, Adele
Kraus, Mary Anne Olson and Peg
