WAB Alleys Need Pin-Setters

Girls are urgently needed to set up
pins at the WAB bowling alleys.
Without the help of volunteer coeds,
the alleys will not be able to open,
according to Dorothy Flint, '46, bowl-
ing manager.
Working as a pin-girl requires only
one hour a week. However, that hour
must be worked at a specific time and
day throughout the remainder of the
semester. It is hoped that the alleys
will be open every Monday through
Friday from 3 to 5, and anyone who
can set up pins during these hours
is urged to contact Miss Flint imme-
diately at 2-3225.

Arrangements will be made for all
pin-girls to have free bowling privi-
leges. Moreover, this work is con-
sidered as an extra-curricular activ-
ity and credit will be given on the
League War Activity sheets.
The alleys are scheduled to open
on Tuesday, Jan. 2, and Bowling Club
activities will get under way at that
time. "Since the alleys are main-
tained for the convenience of all the
coeds, we hope that this appeal for
pin-girls will get a big response so
that the alleys can be opened as
scheduled," added Miss Flint.

Soph Project
Announces Its
Monthly Report
Dorothy Raskind Leads Other
Workers; 178 Coeds Work
1273 Hours for Both Hospitals
Heading the list of Soph Project
hospital volunteers for November is
Dorothy Raskind, '47, who contribu-
ted 28 hours in work at the serology
laboratory of University Hospital.
A total of 1,273 hours of volunteer
work was put in by 178 coeds in both
University and St. Joseph's Hospitals,
and their duties ranged from typing
records to passing trays.
Hospitals Depend on Help
Both hospitals depend to a large
extent upon volunteer help, and with
the praiseworthy cooperation of Uni-
versity women, they have been able
to carry on in spite of an acute short-
age of nurses.
At University Hospital, coed volun-
teers may be found at any hour dur-
ing the day, and Sundays are no
exception. They work in clinics, ped-
iatrics, occupational therapy, labora-
tories, the blood bank, and even roll
St. Joseph's Work Similar
The duties of St. Joseph volunteers
are similar, and they especially help
of during meal times to pass pa-
tients' trays. Volunteers are still
needed at St. Joseph's in the after-
noons during the week and on Sun-
day morning. They may sign up with
Miss Wanzig in the first floor volun-
teer office.
University Hospital still has open-
ings for coed volunteers on Monday
and Friday morning, Saturday after-
noon, and all day Sunday. Those
coeds wishing to volunteer their ser-
vices may register at the third floor
volunteer office.
Any questions concerning Soph
Project will be answered at the vol-
unteer office in -either hospital. At
University Hospital, captains will also
supply information.
Dependability Necessary
Although the hospitals still need
volunteers, only those women who
are dependable, conscientious, and
willing to do what is asked of them
will be accepted.
In former years, Soph Project dir-
ected its efforts toward Soph Cab-
aret, but with the advent of war,
volunteer hospital service has been
the task it is ably carrying out.
Paris News-
PARIS, Dec. 16.-(P)- Under a
'sardonic. headline "Gay Paris" the
leftist newspaper Franc Tireur toda)
suggested that on the basis of Rep
Clare Boothe Luce's reports Ameri-
can women will be asking their hus-
bands to send them packages of fooc
and clothing from France.

Students Help
In Compiling
Work Records
To aid them in compiling an over-
all record of the extent and type of
paid work being done by University
women, the Office of the Dean of
Women has asked those students who
have secured part-time jobs by direct
contact with their employer to regis-
ter their names with them.
This record will not include coeds
who have signed up for work through
the War Council at the League.
Those who have applied through the
Office of the Dean of Women have
already filled out employment cards
with the needed information.
A new bulletin board on which is
posted a list of job opportunities now
open to women students has been put
up in the Office of the Dean of
Women in Barbour Gymnasium.
There are openings in such positions
as caring for an invalid, room and
board jobs, animal care in a Univer-
sity laboratory, child care, and biblio-
graphical work for a graduate stu-
dent, and employers are usually will-
ing to adjust their work to the stu-
dents' schedules.
It has been found that there are
less students this year working for
their room and board, and the ma-
jority of women working on campus
are now employed by the University
itself, in the dormitories, laundry,
hospital, library and the League.
Quiet Hours
To Be Checked
Auxiliary dormitories are receiv-
ing surprise visits by members of the
Judiciary Council to check on viola-
tions of quiet hours.
"Many complaints are received
daily by the council concerning quiet
hour violations. The council is mak-
ing an effort to visit all houses dur-
ing their quiet hours to warn violat-
ors," said Natalie Mattern, president
of Judiciary Council.
Penalty for such a violation will
be imposed according to the discre-
tion of the individual inspector and
according to the degree of violation.
Either a warning will be issued or
the violator will be called before the
.ouncil and given a period of social
probation. The duration of the so-
.ial probation will depend upon the
"Dorms may be visited any time
;hroughout the semester, but the
-ouncil is making a concentrated
Affort to contact all of them now,"
concluded Miss Mattern.

Wanted: New


The search for a theme song that
will express the Assembly spirit and
go down in history as one of Mi-
chigan's traditions is the purpose of
Assembly's new Song Contest.
Each independent may enter as
many compositions as she chooses,
but the entries must have original
tunes and lyrics. They must be writ-
ten in ink on staffed music paper,
but presentation of the melody is suf-
ficient, i. e., no arrangements will be
necessary. Two or more coeds may
collaborate in composing a song, but
separate entries of tunes and lyrics
will not be judged. All entries must
be in the especially provided box in
the Undergraduate Office of the
League before 5 p. m., January 5,

Dean Joseph E. Bursley has asked

War Loan Drive, topping
their $100,000 quota by
$706, the University Bond
Committee announced.
Through the efforts of the
Bond Belles of the Junior
Girls' Project who account-
ed for 60 per cent of the
figure, the University Pay
Roll Savings Plan which
yielded about 20 per cent,
and direct purchases of the
other 20 per cent, 784 sep-
arate sales were made. Or-
iginally the quota for the
University was $50,000, set
by the County War Bond
Committee. However, the
Bond Belles indicated that
the University share should
be larger and suggested the
mark be raised to $100,000.
Solicitations by the Belles
alone accounted for $58,-
000 of the total.

Ensign Alvin E. Jackson,
Jr., '43E, was one of eight
survivors of the American
submarine Flier who swam
18 hours in Japanese-con-
trolled waters to a barren
island and lived there for
days on a pair of cocoa-
nuts. There was a terrific
explosion during the night
and in 20 to 30 seconds the"
ship went down. The men
swam during the night and
finally reached an island
where they rigged a raft
from bamboo and grass,
which they paddled from
island to island, all of
which were uninhabited.
Several days later they
sighted a large island with
a group of buildings sur-
rounded by cocoanut -grove
which they found deserted,
looted and damaged. The
