DOUGHBOY DILEMMA:
Frontline Fighters Send Plea
ForCoed Pin-UpGirl Pictures

"Give us guns, give us tanks, give
up planes, give us a University of
Michigan coed for a pin-up girl !" is
the plea of a company of American
doughboys who describe themselves
as "just a few fellows in Germany
doing our part to end this war."
In a letter addressed to "The Fac-
ulty" of the University of Michigan.
Pvt. Andrew F. Jacobson presented
the plight of himself and his buddies
in "not finding a pin-up girl for our
small but aggressive organization."
One of the men in Pvt. Andrew's
company was a student at the Uni-
versity back in his civilian days.
Memories of beautiful Michigan
coeds went with him overseas. In
refutation to the alleged tradition
that four out of five women are
beautiful and the fifth one goes to
Michigan, this loyal man of the
maize and blue entertained the
men in his barracks with stories of
the best-looking girls in the States
--Michigan coeds. His idea of a
perfect pin-up girl was a typical
American college girl from Ann
Arbor. According to Pvt. Andrews,
this former Michigan man per-
suaded the entire company to write
to the University and ask for pic-
tures from which to choose their
ideal.
The letter from the hopeful soldiers
traveled from the front lines to the
desks of various University deans,
was relayed to the president of the
Women's War Council and finally
arrived at the Student Publications
Building.
Editors of The Daily decided to
turn Pvt. Andrew's problem over to
the University coeds. Every dormi-
tory, sorority and League house is

being asked to help solve this
doughboys' dilemma by submitting
a picture of the girl in their house
whom other residents agree would
make the best pin-up.
Candidate pictures may be sent to
the Women's Editor at The Daily
affices in the Student Publications
Building. All pictures will be for-
warded to Pvt. Andrews anqs his com-
tany. The anxious soldiers have
)romised that "each letter will be
answered promptly."
The picture of the coed who is
-3elected by the men as "the typical
college girl" for whom they are
searching, will be printed in The
Daily. Reports will be made of all
lorrespondence received from -Pvt.
Andrews who promises that the pic-
tures will help them go straight
hrough to Berlin.
All house presidents are asked to
see that each picture submitted is
properly wrapped for overseas mail-
ing and is provided with sufficient
;postage.
Pvt. Andrews and the members
of his "aggressive organization"
issued their plea in all sincerity.
Through these men Michigan co-
eds have found one more oppor-
tunity to demonstrate their sin-
cerity in wanting to "do their
mart." Daily Women's Editor

anics for all coeds who would like to

As Entire Facul
Any war bonds today? There are
many different replies to this ques-
tion and as the Bond Belles canvas
administration and faculty members
in the Sixth War Loan Drive, they
can honestly say that they have
heard all the answers.
Most of the stories contain items
of the kindness and cooperation of
particular faculty members. One
dean of a school wrote personal mes-
sages to his faculty, introducing the
Bond Belle and asking for their
cooperation in the drive. In some
cases, he personally took her to pro-
fessors' offices to introduce her.
Another professor who is selling
bonds himself for a service club in
town is buying his personal bonds
from the University through the
Bond Belle teams.
Some of the experiences of the
Bond Belles have been amusing. One
of the oddest ones occurred when a
professor, instead of giving the cus-
tomary "Yes" or "No" reply to the
Bond Belle, greeted her with a bar-
rage of arguments as to the extreme-
ly "uneconomical" nature of war
bonds.
As one of the Bond Belles put it,
"We don't mind refusals to buy
bonds as we realize that most of
'Grid Shuff le'
Will Be Held
Another "Saturday Grid Shuffle"
which is to be held from 2 p. m. to
5 p. m. tomorrow in the Rainbow
Room of the Union, will give stu-
dents a chance to follow the Army-
Navy football game while dancing to
the music of the latest records.
In addition to posting a running
score of the game, the "Grid Graph,"
a miniature football field, will be dis-
played on the band platform. Danc-
ers will be able to follow the play-by-
play action of the game by watch-
ing the "Grid Graph" as the yard-
age losses or gains are diagrammed
on it.
The "Grid Shuffle" was introduc-
ed by the Union at the beginning of
the semester, and has proved so pop-
ular that it has been continued past
the close of the University football
season. The turnouts for these dan-
ces have been the largest that the
Union has ever had for a Saturday
mixer.
The Union Tap Room will be open
all afternoon for those who might
want refreshments, and a radio will
be tuned in to the game so that
Army-Navy rooters will not have to
lose a minute of the game. Admis-
sion is free, and everyone is urged to
attend, with dates or stag, coeds, ser.
vicemen, and civilians. Paul John,
chairman of the event, expressed the
hope that all students will take ad-
vantage of the chance to hear the
biggest game of the day.
