'Grid Shuffle' To Be Held
2 p.m. Saturday in Union

The "Saturday Grid Shuffle,"
which will be held from 2 p.m. to
5 pm. Saturday in the Rainbow
Room of the Union, will give students
the opportunity to follow the prog-
ress of the Michigan-Ohio State
game while dancing to the music of
new records.
The Grid Graph, a miniature foot-
ball field, will be prominently dis-
played and the plays will be outlined
in chalk by a dummy robot figure.
The play-by-play action of the game
can thus be followed on the Grid
Graph. A running score of the game
will also be posted for the dancers to
Popuar Event
The "Grid Shuffle" is a brand-new
all campus dance, having been intro-
duced by the Union only three weeks
ago for the Michigan-Pennsylvania
game. At that time the Union stated
that these dances would be continued
if enough interest was displayed by
the students. The last dance was
attended by 1,200 students and ser-
vicemen and was the largest turn-out
for a Saturday mixer that the Union'
has ever had.
The Union Tap Room will be open

SPARS Second
Finds Quota Full
General recruiting for the Coast
Guard Women's Reserve ends today.
exactly two years from the time
President Roosevelt signed the au-
thorizing congressional bill, and only
replacement, or women for specia
needs will be accepted for service in
the SPARS in the future.
Almost 10,000 SPARS are on duty
replacing Coast Guard men at shore
stations now, and early in 1945
approximately 200 will be sent tc
Hawaii and 300 to Alaska because of
exceptions recently made in the de-
cision of Congress that SPARS can-
not serve afloat or outside the con-
tinental limits of the Unied States
Every day SPARS are taking
over more duties and releasing
more men for active duty. Each
woman has completed a general
four week indoctrination period
afid taken specialized training in
one of a variety of fields before she
has stepped into the full time,
man-sized job she holds at one of
the Coast Guard bases.
Lt.-Comm.. Dorothy C. Stratton
director of the organization devised
the short, salty nicknamne, SPAR
from the Coast Guard motto, "Sem-
per Paratus" and its translation, "al-
ways ready," and she and the mem-
bers of, her group proudly wear the
basic WAVES' dark blue uniforir
with the Coast Guard shield worn or
the right lower sleeve by enlisted
personnel and on both sleeves b
commissioned officers.
Every SPAR has heard and
answered with action the state-
ment made by Frank Knor, while
he was serving as Secretary of the
Navy, "This is total war-a war in
which every woman as well as
every man must play a part."
Dorms Announce
Holiday Activities
For Thanksgiving
Never let it be said that Thanks-
giving is just another day for Mi-
chigan coeds! It may n'ot mar
mother's special chestnut dressing
and brandied plum pudding, but the
dormitories are doing their best tc
make Thanksgiving a special sort o
day for girls remaining on campus.
Jordan Hall will entertain V-1
men at an open house from 2 to f
p. m., with cokes and dancing. A
light supper is planned for the girl
and it will be served around the fire-
place in the evening.
Barbour and Newberry will have
festive dining room table decora-
tions for their dinners, as will Stock-
well and Adelia Cheever. At Mar-
tha Cook, each girl may bring a
guest to Thanksgiving dinner, and
Mosher Hall will have popcorn, cokes
and apples around the fireplace in
the evening.
League Requests
Coeds To Fill Out
Reference Cards
A mass meeting for members of
the Social Committee will be held, at
4 p. m. Wednesday in the Grand
Rapids Room of the League, it was
announced today by Mary Ann
Jones, chairman of the committee.
The meeting is compulsory for all
persons intending to serve on the
House presidents of dormitories,

sororities and league houses may ob-
tain extra personnel cards for their

all afternoon for those who want
refreshments. A radio with the foot-
ball game tuned in will be playing, so
no one need miss any of the game.
Free Admission
Admission is free and everyone is
urged to attend; with dates or with-
out them, according to Paul John
chairman of the event.
John promises that there will be
"no shortage of men so just come
and have a bang-up time. Show the
team that you're interested and
backing them even if you couldn't
go to Columbus to see them play"
Happy Holiday
To Be Ensured
By Red Cross
Christmas Packages for Men
In Hospitals and Prison Camps
Will Provide Especial Cheer
At this time of the year, when we
all are thinking of the approaching
Christmas season, the American Red
Cross has been carrying on in its
job of seeing that not one of our
servicemen lacks at least some little
piece of his old American Christ-
mases, no matter how far away he
might be.
Red Cross volunteers have packed
over 1,000,000 Christmas boxes for
servicemen in hospitals and isolated
outposts, and special provision has
even been made for boxes for those
who will be on shipboard on Christ-
mas Day. Busy Junior Red Cross
Chapters have made their contribu-
tion by making thousands of holiday
menu covers and sending s many
packages of small chocolatescandies
to be given by servicemen to the
children of Great Britain and Italy.
The American prisoner of war in'
Germany, who perhaps needs a mor-
ale-builder most of all, has not been
forgotten, and special Christmas
packages for distribution to the in-
ternees, including those taken be-
tween now and Christmas, have been
packed. These boxes include such
good things as plum pudding saus-
ages, turkey, tea, honey, strawberry
jam, nuts. fruit bars, and candy, and
to help them as they wait for the
hour of victory, cards, tobacco and a
pipe, games, cigarettes, and pictures
for the barracks' walls.
To the hospitals and Red Cross
clubs will go a little Christmas spirit
in the form of traditional Christmas
tree trimmings and table decorations,
while craft material, song sheets, and
holiday records will help overseas
workers in planning special parties
during the holiday season.
Servicemen in the Selfridge Field,
Romulus and Percy Jones Hospitals
will also receive their boxes, packed
almost entirely by local chapters. No
man has been forgotten.
Parents Appeal
For Coed Help
Proxy parents are greatly needed
y the mothers of Ann Arbor who
.ave appealed to the Child Care
Committee for coeds to take care of
heir children while they do shop-
ing or run some other errands.
Proxy parents, as the coeds are
,alled, are paid by the hour for such
simple tasks as escorting children to
the movies or watching them while
;hey play. Freshmen women may
iecome proxy parents, for no eligi-
flity cards are required.
Some coeds prefer to care for chil-
Iren of an older age. Margery An-
hony, '45, of Martha Cook, who has

'ecently been appointed Girl Scout
Thairman has sent out a request for
foed volunteers to work with Girl
Scout and Girl Reserve troops in Ann
Arbor. The girls in these troops are
)f high school age. Although it is
aot necessary to have had any pre-
ious experience with Girl Scouting,
,hose who do wish to work must take
a short course on leadership. Girl
Reserve assistant leaders are not re-
quired to take this course.
"Girl Scout and Girl Guide work
will be of great value to a potential
ob seeker. The Girl Scout or Girl
3uide leader is better equipped to
get along with people," says Miss
Proxy parents and Girl Scouting
r Girl Guide work is considered as
war work and is tabulated in with
the rest of the war activities. Any
^oed who is interested in this type
of work may call Naomi Miller, Child
Care Chairman at 2-4514 for further
