Letters to the Editor-
To the Coeds:
Last Saturday's Daily carried an article, written by a coed, advising
fellow members of her sex as to the best procedures to follow while dating or
being looked at by servicemen, presumably referring to the local crop. From
the looks of the story she got her information from a Girl Scout's Handbook
dated 1917.
The Michigan edition of the serviceman is not totally ignorant of the
requiremento for social life and usually has most of the prerequisites. Rather,
the conglomeration consists of men from all college campuses throughout
the country with experience of from one to ten years at the best of sorority
Our friend stated that if a civilian had too many feet while on the dance
floor the best bet was to sit out the evening getting secretarian spread at a
bridge table. But, if G.I. Joe did it the deed must be excused because he is
giving.his all for Uncle Sam. That's the one thing a soldier does not want.
We aren't looking for sympathy. If we bore you, say so. If we step on your
feet, collectively or otherwise, suggest a game of bridge; chances are that
we can play it too. But don't build up a line or method of approach designed
for servicemen. We hate it!
As for clothes, just be natural. Skirts and sweaters are great for mid-
week wear or informal USO dances. Those knee-high woolen stockings that
are cropping up now were designed for Russian snipers and make even the
prettiest pair of.legs look like those of a cold bovine. Dress clothes should be
the .sam'e as always. If you look good in red, wear it, everyone else does.
Don't be over-feminine though because the local soldier or sailor doesn't
have time to cater to the whims of a vine-type female. She's poison ivy in
his books.
At your next USO function, Miss Coed, try to remember a few'of these
points. They're yours to use when and if you please. If they seem far-
fetched give them a brief trial anyway; we think they might work and know
that at least they can't make matters worse.

Chicago Servicemen's Centers
Play Host to Over 6,000 Girls

CHICAGO-(A)-The Chicago ser-
vicemen's centers, rated among the
nation's top places of entertainment
for men in the armed forces, had a
girlpower problem today-too many.,
A controversy over the dropping
from the centers' membership lists
of more than 300 girls disclosed that
some 10,000 girls are waiting for a
chance to go to the centers and
dance with the servicemen.
About 6,000 girls, between 18 and
30 years of age, have been granted
membership in the centers and their
duties consist of general social activ-
ities,_ including dancing, playing
games, and talking with the service-
men one night a week.
The girls' committee of the wom-
en's advisory board of the centers
last. week ruled that more than 300

girls. many of them members since
the first of the three centers opened
two years ago, should be dropped to
make room for some of the 10,000
girls on the waiting list.
But many of the girls who have
received dismissal notices have pro-
tested to center officials and have
formed the servicemen's centers' vet-
erans. Miss Clara Miller, a spokes-
man for the group, said there weren't
so many girls seeking to join the cen-
ters two years ago when there were
more civilian men than now.
But Daniel L. Flaherty, adminis-
trative director of the centers, said
he believed the board's ruling was
fair "and other girls should have the
same privilege of serving that the
original girls have had. Of course
they can protest. It's a free country,"

-in his column The Washington Merry-Go-Round not only the news but what makes the news.
Today as never before in the lifetimes of all of us, what the governments of the world are doing
is of personal, direct concern to all of us. Today there rages a world struggle more fateful in
immediate effect and in consequence than any the world has yet seen. A prime power in that
struggle is Washington. How Washington acts and reacts is vital. To know both and to understand
why, follow The Washington Merry-Go-Round.
