Battle Fronts
Demand More
Army Nurses
The increased tempo on battle
fronts all over the world has brought
with it an increased demand for nur-
ses, and although it is largely due to
American nurses that less than three
per cent of the men wounded in ac-
tion become fatal casualties, this per-
centage will increase unless the cry
for more nurses is answered.
A recent announcement from Maj.
Gen. Norman T. Kirk, Surgeon Gen-
eral of the Army, disclosed that hos-
pital units which the Medical De-
partment had not expected to or-
ganize before March must now be
activated in November-at once..
Graduate nurses, especially those who
are planning to have Christmas at
home and then join up, should re-
consider, for if they indulge in the
pleasure of a holiday season at.home,
some boy, who is fighting for the
privilege of everyone's having a hap-
py Christmas, may, during that time,
be losing his chance of ever having
another Christmas.

Toledo Coeds
Begin Campaign
For Slim Hips
Slim waists and hips at the risk
of becoming musclebound is the new-
est slogan for members of Florence
Scott Libbey Hall, women's dormitory
at the University of Toledo.
Each night at 11:00 p. m. the
lounge blazes with light and pajama-
clad women stream into the room.
Their streaming has been slightly
slower in the past few days. At last
one enters with a mysterious box
from which she carefully extracts
two black discs which turn out to be
records. These are placed on the
record player and immediately ev-
eryone is transformed into a writh-
ing, swaying individual. And so be-
gin their nightly exercises.
The fad has spread to almost ev-
eryone in the dorm, although there
are a few who prefer some extra in-
ches on their waistline to being crip-
pled for life.

Admission is free and music for the
