'U' Women Urged to Turn In





< - I

All Christmas boxes for veterans
stationed at Percy Jones hospital
must be turned in at the Office of
the Social Director of the League by
Dec. 15, according to Deborah Per-
ry, 45, chairman of the drive.
Although the committee expects
to surpass last year's mark of 300
boxes, none have yet been turned in.
Miss Parry reminded the coeds that
the deadline for the boxes is only
two weeks away and added, "This
drive really is important, and we
hope that every woman on campus
will contribute to it."
Many houses have already organ-
ized plans for the drive. Alpha Gam-
ma Delta, Chi Omega, Alpha Delta
Pi, Alpha Xi Delta and Pi Beta Phi
will give one box from each room in
their respective houses, while Gamma
Phi Beta, Zeta Tau Alpha, Kappa
Alpha Theta and Sigma Delta Tau
will give one box from every two
Alpha Epsilon Phi has collected
$1.00 from every member and will
use this to buy boxes, and Alpha

Omicron Pi, Alpha Phi, Betsy Bar-
bour House and Helen Newberry Res-
idence will also collect money. Col-
legiate Sorosis will give three large
boxes and Mosher Hall will give five.
Martha Cook expects one hundred
percent participation, as the girls are
filling boxes in individual groups,
and also contributing to a fund. Sev-
eral houses stated that they had no
definite plans as yet, but that they
definitely intended to make their
Pat Coulter, head of personnel
administration, has announced
that additional personnel blanks,a
which must be filled out by every
woman on campus, may be ob-
tained in the Undergraduate Office
in the League.
There will be a meeting of trans-
fer group A at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday
in the League, according to Betty
Vaughn and Jane Strauss.

Dressings Unit
To Begin New
Quota System
The Surgical Dressings Unit has
inaugurated a new quota system in
order to make the competition more
fair for the smaller houses, Francis
Goldberg, publicity chairman, -an-
This new system is based upon
percentage rather than hours. The
number of hours of work each house
puts in at the Unit is divided by the
number of girls living in the house.
In this way, if on the average, each
girl puts in one hour at the Unit, the
house would have filled its quota and
thus have 100%.
According to this new system, the
three top sororities were: Alpha Delta
Pi, 132%; Sigma Delta. Tau, 84%;
and Delta Delta, 79%. The three top
dormitories were: Lockwood Manor,
65.2%, Day House, 16.6%; and Betsy
Barbour, 12.6% The three top league
houses were: Mrs. Ross' League
House, 36%; Mrs. Gorman's League
House, 33%; and Mrs. Rock's League
House, 27%.
There will be another special ses-
sion for instructors from 3 p.m. to
5 p.m. Monday at the League.







Either way, you'll want
them ...'cause they're tops
with the campus crowd. Step-in

Notice Is Qiven
For Quiet Hours
Unless quiet hours are set and kept
in all houses, the Dean of Women
will be forced to set compulsory
hours, according to Mrs. Arthur Bro-
mage, Assistant Dean of Women.
"In many cases the league houses
are just now being organized, how-
ever, all houses should have chosen
the quiet hours best suited to their
individual needs," said Mrs. Bromage.
A number of students, in addition
to house mothers, have gone into
the dean's office to complain about
the lack of quiet hours in their league
"It is to the student's advantage to
have a. set time in which she can
study or sleep without being dis-
turbed by the noise of thoughtless
neighbors. If the students will keep
their chosen quiet hours so much the
better, but if not, this privilege of
choosing the hours will be forfeited,"
concluded Mrs. Bromage.
