Suomynona To Sponsor


Of Summer Radio Programs

Role of Coed in War
Will Be Portrayed
"The Michigan Woman at War,"
first of a series of summer radio pro-
grams to be given under the auspices
of Suomynona, will be presented at
1:15 p.m. EWT tomorrow over WPAG,
the Ann Arbor radio station.
Suomynona, a new organization
which automatically includes all un-
dergraduate indepedent women not
living in a dormitory, league house,
co-operative house or the Michigan
League, will report for Assembly, the
organization of all independent co-
eds, in these Saturday programs.
President Writes Scripts
The scripts for "The Michigan
Women at War" are written by Mar-
jorie J. Baker, president of Suomy-
nona. Members of the new organiza-
tion will be the only persons taking
part in the presentation of the pro-
gram which will deal with the change
of Betty Coed in peacetime to Betty
Coed at war.

Included in the program will be
the facts of how the peacetime
League Council was replaced by the
present Women's War Council, why
the system of War Activities Work
Sheets was initiated, and how that
system functions. The program will
be given partly in dialogue form,
tracing the part played by coeds in
Michigan's transformation from
'peacetime to war.
Purpose of Organization
The purpose of Suomynona was ex-
pressed by Mary Chernus, vice-presi-
dent, who said, "Suomynona is an
organization whose purpose is to en-
able all independent coeds living in
private city residences to assemble
together and to coordinate their in-
terests and activities." The summer
broadcasts will be the major project
of the newly organized group.
Officers of Suomynona were elect-
ed earlier in the semester and include
in addition to Miss Baker and Miss
Chernus, Eleanor Moxness, as secre-
tary and Marge Faraday as treasurer.

State Street House will hold an
informal party from 8:30 to midnight
(EWT) Saturday. Mrs. Elizabeth
Bolles, the house mother is giving
the party as a farewell present.
Guests have been invited by the
coeds and all look forward to an eve-
ning of dancing and refreshments.

Now On Duty
At Leyte Post
Helen Hope Hanley, '36, has re-
cently been sent to Leyte. after hav-
ing served in New Guinea for more
than a year.
Miss Hanley, daughter of Mrs. Stu-
dart Hanley, an assistant in the De-
partment of Physical Education for
Women, was stationed for about sev-
en months at Buna Mission, in New
Guinea, where she ran a canteen at
the Air Strip for a month. She then

During her four months at Hollan-
dia, Netherlands New Guinea, Miss
Hanley built and ran a canteen at
the Navy docks. From her new post
on Leyte, she wrote recently, "We
are for the present in a Filipino
town-wooden construction and fair-
ly old, I udge. It is not much to see.
Other than the City Hall and a
couple of schools, everything* seems
to be grass shacks, almost like the
native New Guinea residences. They
are amazingly small and shelter an
incredible number of people."

R AYON JERSEY is rapidly disap-
pearing from the fashion field.
Its disappearance is regarded with
alarm both by designers, who were
just beginning to adjust themselves
to the limitations of this fabric, and
American women, because they had
found its slithery cool softness ideal
for summer wear.
The wide use of rayon jersey has
been a comparatively new thing, as
it only became popular after silk be-
came unavailable. Ac first Ameri-
can designers did some rathei un-
fortunate things with it. They cut
it straight and tight, forgetting that
the average American figure is large-
hipped, and that jersey sags.
This year's crop of jersey dresses
show on the whole, realization of
these vital facts. They are draped,
or gathered, cut on the straight to
avoid sagging, and discreet peplums
are used to make the back view as
attractive as the front.
WHEN JERSEY first became im-
portant, fabric designers appar-
ently decided that it was a topical
