Coed Dance Club
To Hold Meeting
Any women interested in dancing
with the Modern Dance Club are
invited to attend a meeting at 7:30

'Experience is not a prerequisite,
just enthusiasm," according to
Jeanne Parson, director of the club.
No special equipment is required,
although leotards are usually worn.
The club plans to dance in the
WAA district conference in April
and to present an informal studio

Yantis is the faculty adviser.

committee members.
There will be a meeting of the cen-

aret at 2 p. m. Thursday in the Und-
ergraduate Office of the League. All
chairmen must attend.

Proof of the statement that "It's
the people who make an organization"
is easily seen when the varied work
of the Red Cross is lauded, for that
praise is in itself a sterling tribute to
those who serve with the Red Cross.
From those volunteers who work in
local chapters to those serving over-
seas on all fronts, everyone does his
job to help the serviceman and the
civilian alike. More than 10,000
trained men and women are now
serving with the Red Cross overseas
in such capacities as field directors,
recreation workers, case workers, so-
cial workers, and clerical assistants.
They are serving in every Ameri-
can Theater of war, from Great Brit-
ain to the China-Burma-India zone,
on remote islands in the Pacific, and
trekking through the frigid wastes of
Iceland and Greenland.
Sometimes the 'iRed Cross girl" is
the first American woman that battle-
weary men have seen in months, and
their first reaction is not to enjoy the
food and comforts which she serves
them, but just to look at her and take
in the fact that she comes from their

Fashion-Wise Coeds
Will Choose Sailors
For Spring Outfits
This spring there will be a sailor for
every coed, in the form of a hat,
of course.

New versions of the sailor hat are
dubbed the Bicycle, which has yard-
long streamers attached, the Suit,
with black quills topping shining
straw-braid, and the Postilion which
has a higher crown and is brimmed
with either bewitching ribbon bows
or pastel flowers.

beloved States. The keynote of rest
homes for servicemen in Italy, Aus-
tralia, and other overseas posts is
"just like home," and the Red Cross
women who staff these homes do their
best to make the men's stay the next
best thing to home.
From rest homes to palm-thatched
canteens, the serviceman finds the
Red Cross and its workers. In the
South Pacific, canteens offer combat
returnees items which they haven't
seen for months, and maybe years.
At desert stations refreshments are
usually offered in a tent.
A unique note was added to an al-
ready full Red Cross program when
they set up beauty salons for service-
women in such distant points as
London and New Zealand.
Cceds interested in serving as
assistant teachers for the civilian
social dancing classes being offered
every Ttesday by the social com-
mittee should contact Janice Car-
ter, 2-1146.
