This 1945 edition of V-Ball will be
the third dance of its kind to oc-
cupy a prominent spot in the way of'
student entertainment during the
year. Before the advent of war,
V-Ball was non-existent. Instead,
J-Hop and Senior Ball were high-
lights of campus social life. How-
ever, for the past three years, these
traditional dances have been com-
bined to form V-Ball.
McIntyre and his orchestra were
voted the best new band of the year
by Billboard magazine's poll of col-
lege editors and they have gained in-
creased popularity within the past
year. Originally, McIntyre started
with his own eight piece band. He
then joined Glenn Miller's outfit, and
at Miller's suggestion, McIntyre went
on to form his own band.
Soloists who are featured with the
orchestra include Al Nobel and Gloria
Van. Noble gained wide experience
as a vocalist on the networks and
sang with Eddit Lane and Carl Hoff's
band before joining the McIntyre
The orchestra is scheduled to make
an overseas tour of hospitals, out-
posts, and behind-the-line entertain-

last six months and will set the pace

IPetitioning and interviewing for

The petitions are to be brought to

from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through
Thursday in the Assembly Office in
the Kalamazoo Room of the League.
Petitions may be obtained in both
the Undergraduate Office and the

The traditional dance was started
last year when Assembly and Panhel
Organizations sponsored "Boulevard

tured Jerry Wald and his orchestra.
Michigan women were able to pay
back the men by inviting them to

Stressing the urgent need for Nur -
se's Aides during the present critical
shortage of trained nurses, Mrs.
Bradley Patten, Red Cross N e
Aide chairman, urged coeds to reis-

ter for the new Nurse's Aide courseI
to begin Tuesday.
All those who are interested mustt
sign up with Mrs. Patten from 0 a.m.
to noon in North Hall this wceh>, or
they may call her there.
The course includes six weeks of
classroom instruction to be given
from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesdays,
Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Fol-
lowing this will be five weeks of prac-
tical work at the hospital from 3
p.m. to 6 p.m. on the same days. In
order to earn her cap, a Nurse's Aide
must have completed 80 hours of
class and practical work.
Women may take the course for
I two hours of University credit if
they put in 70 additional hours at
the hospital. Seniors should not take
the course for credit, however, since

they will not have sufficient time
before graduation to give the extra
'70 hours.
A large amount of nurses from
botho St. Joseph's and University
Hospitals will leave April 1 fcr the
armed forces, making the nursing
situation in the vicinity acute. It is
especially important that this class
be filled.
The course will not be taught to
less than 20 women.

Coeds Want To Look

Tips Are Given
For Longer Wear
From Old Shoes
Shoe rationing has made it a pat-
riotic necessity to take care of shoes
already owned to insure longer wear
and foot comfort, and the absence
of the shoeshine boy around the cor-
ner has turned coeds' attention to
keeping the shine on their own shoes.
One of the most important rules in
preserving shoes is keeping them
cleaned and well polished, and for
this purpose polish to clean all types
of shoes should be kept on hand.
One polish will not ao the trick for
all shoes, and the wise coed will
keep her own shoeshine box, com-
plete with paste, cream or wax-liquid
polish for smooth leathers and suede
and gabardine dressings for nappy
leathers and fabric.
Scuffing of smooth leather shoes
can be prevented on the first wear-
ing by a previous good polishing.
Routine shines are better and more
effective if dirt is removed before ap-
plying the polish, and a good saddle
soaping will prevent shoes which have
not been worn for several months
from drying out.
Shoes should be taken to the cob-
bler at the first sign of wear, for a
run down heel will quickly throw a
shoe out of place. Rain is hard on
new or newly-soled shoes and shoes
exposed to damp weather should be
dried slowly in a cool place, and then
brushed or polished according to
