JGP To Begin
6th War Loan
With Bow Day
Coeds Will Sell Red Ribbons
Fixed to Stamps Tomorrow;
Bond Belles To Meet Tuesday
"Beaus Have Gone to War" will be
the slogan for JGP's Bow Day tomor-
row when bright red bows with war
stamps attached to them will be sold
from 8 a.m. to noon and from 1 p.m.
to 3 p.m. on campus.
Bow Day will begin the Sixth War
Loan Drive which opens tomorrow.
Only red ribbon has been used to
make the bows-the red symbolizing
the "rosy future" which buying
stamps will bring to everyone.
The price of the bows and stamps
will be ten and twenty-five cents.
"The ribbon is free," explained Betty
Vaughn, chairman of the bow com-
mittee, "just to prove how anxious
we are for everyone to buy a bow
Meeting for Bond Belles,
However, Bow Day, while it will be
a colorful beginning, is not the only
special project JGP is carrying on
during the war loan drive. The Bond
Belle teams who will sell war bonds
to faculty and administration mem-
bers are asked to attend a mass
meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the
League, according to special events
chairman, Fran Goldberg.
The fifteen captains who were
chosen to head the drive in the
various schools will select their teams
beween now and Tuesday. Any jun-
ior woman who would like to work
on a team should call Miss Goldberg
at 2-3225, and she will assign her to
Griffith Will Speak
R. Gordon Griffith, the University
representative in the drive, and War-
ren Cook, head of the Ann Arbor
drive, will speak at the mass meeting.
Griffith will explain the procedure
to be carried on by the teams when
they start selling bonds.
This year's Bond Belle quota has
been set at $100,000; while last year's
teams met their $50,000 quota. "This
increased quota," commented Nora
MacLaughlin, general chairman, "re-
quires that many juniors work on
the project. If you've failed to sign
up and would still like to, fill out a
card with your name, address, tele-
phone number, and the name of the
committee on which you would like
to work. Put this in my box in the
Undergrad office in the League."
Two Dorms Plan
Bond Drive Parties
Both Martha Cook and Newberry
are making plans for holding special
parties in conjunction with the open-
ing of the Sixth War Loan Drive, ac-
cording to Claire Macaulay, dormi-
tory war stamp chairman.
Newberry is going to have a war
stamp dinner tomorrow, while Cook
will have a fashion show Tuesday.
Admission to both of these functions
will be the purchase of a war stamp.
At Martha Cook the stamps pur-
chased as admission fees will go into
a pool which will be raffled off in the
course of the show. The more stamps
a woman buys the greater her chance
to win the block of stamps.
As consolation prizes, the clothes
which are being modeled will also be
raffled. The clothes most of which
are formals and over-coats, have
been accumulated for several years
and have not been claimed.
CHICAGO, Ill., Nov. 18.- (IP)
Second Lt. Ellanore Melody, Wom-
en's Army Corps, formerly of Detroit,
has been appointed claims and legal
assistance officer at Gardiner Gen-
eral Hospital, Colonel John R. Hall,
Commanding Officer, announced to-
Eligibility is the word everyone is
hearing this semester and yet very
few §eem to know exactly why the
rule has reappeared after it had been
disbanded for an entire year.
According to Dean Joseph Bur-
sley, the rule was abolished in the
past year for experimental purposes.
Since the civilian population was the
smallest it had been in many years,
the time seemed ripe to attempt the
opening of activities to all.
This year there has been a greater
civilian enrollment in the Univer-
sity. Therefore, because of the in-
creased social activity which ac-
companies an increase in enrollment,
the Student Affairs Committee felt
the need of both acclimating the new
Freshmen and helping to control the
grades of the rest of the students.
Participation in a public activity
includes service of any kind on a
committee, publication, public per-
formance or being a candidate for
office in a class or other student
organization. Athletic activities are
not included in this rule.

All questions should be placed in
Miss Mattern's box in the Under-
graduate Office of the League before

Skating Club Offers Students
Chance To Cut Fancy Figures
By JOAN WILK
Scene: A dorm.
Time: Before dinner.
Directions: A coed, of the Michigan
species, running down a corridor
yelling . . .
"I did it! I did it! I did it!"
Now, dear reader, what did this
Michigan coed do? Did she pass her
first bluebook, did she get an answer
to the letter she sent Frank Sinatra,
or did she get that Marine who sits
next to her in Organic Evolution to
take her out?
The Mystery Is Solved
You don't know? Shall we let you
in on a secret? She did something
entirely different. She joined the
Figure Skating Club, sponsored by
WAA, and learned to make her first
She knew nothing at all about
figure skating before she joined, but
Ruth Wineberg, '46, president; Silvia
Merrill, '46, secretary; and instruc-
tors, Betty Bott and Kay McFee,
'46, are teaching her the fundamen-
tals of this healthful and fun pro-
All University students are eligible
to join if they own a pair of figure
skates. They will be their "ticket to
membership." Although the instruc-
tors don't promise to make you
another Sonja Henie, they want you
to come out, have fun, and learn
something about figure skating.
New Members Invited
Meetings are ordinarily held on I
Tuesday and Wednesday at 3:30 p.m.
at the rink, but because of the
Thanksgiving Day holiday, this
week's Wednesday meeting will not
be held. However, all are urged
to attend the meeting on Tuesday.
In the spring, the Figure Skating
Club plans to participate in a carni-
val. Miss Wineberg wishes to point
out that men students are also
invited to come out for the club. It
is not "strictly feminine."
Would you like to travel free?
Join the WAVES and on leaves you
can travel at specially reduced fur-
lough rates, and get free rides on
both bus and streetcar in some cities.

tensive social program this year, in-
cluding monthly birthday parties
and after-dinner coffees.
Honoring new residents, Betsy
Barbour dormitory held their annual
initiation dinner Thursday night.
Cornelia Groefsema, president of
Barbour, formally welcomed the new
girls and presented each with the
traditional Barbour rose.
Importance of the times, its chal-
lenge to young women, and the great
discoveries which are growing out of
chaos was the subject of the address
given by Dean Alice C. Lloyd.
BUY WAR BONDS
By PAMELA ASKEW
For winter parties, perhaps the
most popular dress fabric is velvet-
een, either alone or combined with
taffeta or wool. Many of the 'little
wools' that one sees at teas and
dances are in reality "close-cropped
velveteen, or its up and coming cou-
Made in rich jewel tones, these
fabrics have come 'out of the kit-
chen' to the extent of receiving
a rush that any debutante could
envy. And the most startling fea-
ture of these newcomers is the
fact that they are not limited to
any one style; they are as adapt-
able as possible, and can be made
into either dressy or tailored
Black velveteen, in a naive little
jumper, offers a solution to the 'what-
shall - I - wear - tonight?' problem.
Worn with a rhinestone-buttoned
blouse with bishop sleeves, it could
hold its own in the most dressy com-
pany, and with a crepe tailored
blouse, it becomes tailored.
The 'fly-front' tailored dress done
in wool flannel has long been a
favorite with the college girl, but
imagine it done is raspberry velvet-
een or royal blue with shining sil-
ver buttons. Who could ask for
Corduroy, known in the middle
ages as 'the Kings' fabric', which or-
iginated its name, 'corde du rot',
was once so scarce that only those
of noble rank could wear it. Then
it suffered a decline and was very
seldom heard of, but it made a mete-
orous comeback and is now found in
the very 'best' gatherings.
The cord comes in either wide or
narrow wale, the narrow being used
for the more dressy styles, while the
wide makes excellent campus and
country clothes. Popular during the
past year have been pastel corduroy
suits, cut along semi-tailored line
so that they may be worn with a
sweater for casual wear.
All Junior Hostesses of the USO
must attend a meeting to be held
at 4 p.m. today in the auditorium
of the Ann Arbor High School
(located on the corner of State
and Huron Ave.)
All women who intend to par-
ticipate in USO functions this year
must attend this meeting, Ruth
Edberg, head of student activities
of the USO announced.

If it weren't for you
be any Santa Claus at
mean very little,. and
and millions of
all. The jolly
other people like you, there wouldn't
fat man in the bright red suit would
pack would be just a vacuum.
Thank heavens -- and thanks to you .- he is real. Just as real as your af-
fection for those you love. For all his kind generosity is but a reflec-
tion of your own unselfish spirit.
So, when we say Santa is a grand old soul -- when we say we love him and
all the sweet sentiment he represents - you know who we're talking about.
It is o and you, and y. You who trim the trees, wrap the gifts, send
the greetings, hang the mistletoe. - -
