Under a Mango Tree
Boosts G.I. Morale
The Army believes so strongly in,
the value of a pretty girl as a morale
booster for .the men that it is main-
taining a beauty parlor in a tin
shack under a mango tree in New
Guinea for the American girls sta-
tioned there.
An old generator supplies the elec-
tricity and it often takes all day for
a girl's hair to dry. Gun oil is fre-
quently used on the hair. Mosquito
repellant is used as a nail polish
remover. Salvaged mosquito netting
is used for hair nets.
Neverthelels, the jungle beauty
parlor is. so popular that the girls

The list of attractions doesn't end
with the above-mentioned items be-
cause there will also be programs

will "invade" the dance, appropriate
# door prizes and intermission enter-
The Egg Hunt will continue to dis-
rupt campus traffic throughout to-

LaCrosse Group
To Hold Meeting
Members of WAA's LaCrosse Club
and all those coeds who are inter-
ested in learning to play this fasci-
nating game will meet for the first
time this season at 4:30 p. m. today at
LaCrosse is somewhat similar to
field hockey. It requires the samel
number of players and the field upon
which it is played is the same size as
a hockey field. However, in place of
a puck, a ball is used and LaCrosse
sticks, similar to racquets, replace
Any woman who would like to par-
ticipate in this game which has gain-
ed increased popularity here on cam-
pus since it was introduced to coeds
three years ago may come to this
afternoon's meeting.
No previous LaCrosse experience is
needed since ample instruction in the
fundamentals of the game will be
given to all who come out for it.
Smartest hat of the spring season
is the flower bedecked beauty. In
colors ranging from palest pastel to
vibrant Mexican colors, the 'unreal'
flowers on any spring chapeau adds a
gay and decorative note.

To Attend Tea!
The first of a. series of teas de-
signed to establish closer relationsI
between women living in League
houses will be held from 4 to 5:30
tomorrow in the lounge of the WA.
Inhabitants of League Housesahave
been divided into Zones of about
fifty coeds by the WAA for conveni-
ence in participation in sports and
other League activities. Jean Brown,
League House Manager, explained
that the fact that these women live
so far apart and seldom see each
other has been a distinct disadvan-
tage to them in competition with
oth er groups.
"We want to create a feeling of
good - fellowship and cooperation
which will serve these rather un-
organized women in all future cam-
pus activities." Miss Brown conclud-
Cceds living in zones III and IX
are invited to attend this tea. They
will play bridge and ping pong, and
will watch charades and movid
about Michigan.

It makes no difference if the rushee

houses to which she has gone to
the final dessert would be the most
logical choice. There is no limit to
