signed to acquaint freshman, trans-
fer and old Michigan students.

desk and one ticket per Union mem-
her will be sold.
League Keeps
Coed Records
The average coed probably does not
realize that a vigilant eye, in the
person of Merit Committee, is being
kept on all her activities on campus.
This group of about fifteen girls
keeps a file in the League with cards
for every girl on campus. One card
lists all the activities in which she has
participated each year on campus,
and other cards give her ratings by
committee chairmen, who comment
on her dependability,ability, and
willingness to work.
Judiciary Council uses these files
when considering applicants who
have petitioned for League positions,
and they are also used when recom-
mendations for employment are be-
ing writtei for University graduates.
"Working on Merit Committee re-
quires a great deal.of efficient book-
keeping, as any mistakes on our part
might be to the detriment of some-
one else," Joanne Pullum, '45, said,
"and we are always glad to add care-
ful workers to our staff."
WAA Club To Hold
Breakfast Hike
Members of WAA's active Outing
Club will meet at 8:00 a. m. to-
morrow at WAB and will then hike to
the Island for breakfast.
The group plans to prepare its own
breakfast outdoors and will have an-
other opportunity to utilize its "tin
can cookery" ability. During the
first weeks of the fall semester, the
Outing Club held a cookout on Pal-

mer Field and during the winter
months participated in various win-
ter sports.
In April, women belonging to the
club will -take a hostel trip to Sal-
ine Valley. Two groups will partici-
pate. One will leave at 9'30 a. im.,
and the second will depart at 12:30
p. m. to enable those with Saturday
morning classes to go with the club.

Filmy head scarfs are practical as well as flattering for evening wear.
A blonde is twice as dazzling in black lace, and white or palest pink
set off brunette beauty to perfection. The scarfs also keep the hair in
place and protect it from moisture.

Physically Fit'
To Be By-word
Of U.S. Women
WASHINGTON - (') - Relax,
brother, and stop worrying about
your babe becoming beefy with bulg-
ing giceps after the war.
The women themselves are going to
see that they don't get that way.
They realize that you want them to
remain trim and glamorous albeit in
fine physical fettle.
Any kind of postwar physical fit-
ness program that might develop
American Amazons is out. So is
compulsion, which might not be so
good for the figure, they figure.
. You can take that for keeps,
straight from the National Women's
Commission on the Form Feminine,
{ also known as physical fitness, and
its chairman, Laurentine Collins, of
Commission members, including
representatives from fashion circles,

medical groups, the pulpit, schools,
army and navy, are here discussing
the woman's part in strengthening
the nation psysically.
Standards which may be set up
for men will not do at all for women
Miss Collins told a reporter. She ex-
plained the viewpoint of what some
persons used to call the weaker sex:
The need for improving women
physically is just as real as for the
men. But women are different, bio-
logically, psychologically and, up to
now, sociologically.
They don't go in for mass forma-
tions. "0 woman got to want to
! do a thing and plan her own pro-

Swimming is wonderful for a
woman or horseback riding, bad-
minton, tennis and ever so many
things like that. But the principal
idea is to make her think it is im-
portant to her.

I '

of a Redc ross worker was recently
described by Marjorie S. Kendall,
'42, in a letter to the Michigan Alum-
nae Council.
Miss Kendall is stationed in New
Zealand with the American Red
Cross. She writes:
"I doubt if a Red Cross Girl has
ever been able to tell you what she
does for we never do the same thing
twice and are called upon to do most
everything. When I first came I
was sent with three other girls to a
Marine Camp miles away from any
town.It was our job to keep those
boys entertained.
"We established a small Red Cross
Hut which provided a lounge, can-
teen, writing desks and stage. Our
largest project was a regimental tal-
ent show in which over 300 men took
part. The talent we found in that
outfit Was amazing-singers, come-'
jians, a flame swallower, actors, in-
strument solos, dancers, and quar-
"After the Marines left, I was re-
assigned to a leave area. in a resort
section. Here my work was alto-
gether different. We met many men
coming to town on the train or bus,
got rooms for them, gave informa-
tion as to where they could get bicy-
cles, horses, golf clubs, play tennis,!
swim, etc., gave three dances a week,.

ran a date bureau, and organized
native concerts for large groups. It
was most interesting going into a
strange town and working the whole
thing out from the ground up."
Over the Christmas months, we
had a terrific time getting accom-
modations for the men. It is summer
here in November and December andj
the tourists all came. The New Zea-
land Air Force was stationed here,
and our men were coming down
260 and 300 per day. For three and
a half months we had an averageof
400 men in private. homes all the
time. Most of the homes charged
nothing and provided meals in spite
of the tea, sugar, butter, and meat
"Besides the large things we are
responsible for, we do many odd'
and small things for the men here.
Sew -on buttons, look at pictures of'
wives and sweethearts, buy presents
for children and girls, loan money,'
arrange fried chicken dinners for
small groups, and in general do any-
thing they ask us to that we pos-
sibly can. One of the oddest things
I have been asked to do was to find'
a two months' old baby for one of
the men. He had never seen his own
son at home and wanted to hold a,
baby of the same age as his child."
