To Over 500 'U' Servicewomen,


Publication Contains Excerpts
From Former Coeds' Letters
Among the many wartime innova-
tions at the University is the Alum-
nie News Bulletin now being sent to
more than five hundred Michigan
women in service.
The Bulletin, edited by Mrs. Lu-
cle B. Conger, executive secretary
of the Alumnae council, consists of
Social Activities
For Fall Listed
Stress on the revival of University
traditions, a project to entertain ser-
vicemen at Percy Jones, and a new
system of entertaining for Interna-
tional Center Teas have been placed
at the top of the list of Social Com-
mittee plans for next fall.
Hoping to bring to light again some
of the small Michigan traditions, such
as not walking 'on the seal at the
main library, the Social Committee
plans to sponsor a series of lectures
on the University.
Hospital Project To Be Undertaken
An activity whereby coeds will
make frequent trips to Percy Jones
Veteran's Hospital at Battle Creek
to act as hostesses for dances, similar
to the recent journey made by 72
women from Gamma Phi Beta, Sor-
osis, and the Women's War Council
is also being promoted.

tered the war, the Alumnae council
began to cOmflpile a list of names and

issue of her news letter in December,
Publication Sent Overseas
Sponsored by the Alumnae coun-
cil, the publication is sent out to
alumnae overseas and in the United
States who are serving with the arm-
ed forces or the American Red Cross.
"We receive letters of apprecia-
tion every week from all parts of
the world," Mrs. Conger said, "and in
several instances Michigan women
have discovered, through our Bulle-
tin, that a former friend or class-
mate was serving nearby. Many small
groups have been' brought together
through the News Bulletin."
Mrs. Conger keeps a file containing
a card for each alumna in service,
on which is kept information as to
her rank, work, and location. These
cards are revised each month with
the addition of news from the latest
letters which the council has received.
To Be Issued Throughout War
The Bulletin is to be issued
throughout the course of the war.
"It has done a great deal to intelest
women in the alumnae organization,"
Mrs. Conger asserted. The publica-
tion is mimeographed and mailed out
from the League under the sponsor-
ship of the Alumnae Council, which
defrays the publication and mailing
After the war, when the last issue
of the Bulletin has been published, all
letters and records will be turned
over to the historical library in the
Rackham building. "Since this is the
first time that the women of Michi-
gan have gone to war, we thought it
wise to makea record of their contri-
butions. Our files and bulletins have
been requested for the Rackham col-
lection because of their historical
value," Mrs. Conger stated.
