Accept an old-fashioned greeting with old-
fashioned sincelty. And. as the clock in
the tower strikes the con ing of '45, our
thoughts will be with you, for the Victory
and~c Peace totvai d which all ofor 1 ot

" "' I'

was the motto on campus
for this New Year's week-
end. Because few service-
men were granted permis-
sion to celebrate the com-
ing of the new year to-
night it was decided to
celebrate 25 hours early.
So at 11 p.m. last night
600 lusty lungs completed
the illusion. Confetti, pa-
per hats, noisemakers and
all the trimming invaded
the Rainbow Room at the
Union for an informal
dance. Jimmy Strauss, De-
troit society band leader,
and his orchestra supplied
the music for the evening.
BUT WAIT, that's not
all! For those lucky souls
with late permission for
tonight, a gala occasion is
being planned by the Wo-
men's War Council to be
held at the League. Com-
edy, vaudeville, dancing,
movies, games and a gen-
eral atmosphere of gayety
will add to the fun of new
year frolickers from 8 p.m.
to 1:30 n.m. at the League

Buggy Ride." Members of
the Women's Glee Club
will sing. Favorite records
will furnish music in the
ballroom where a coke bar
will be run by Assembly.
The League grill room will
be open during the eve-
ning and will be appropri-
ately decorated for the
New Year's festivities.
Dean of Women Alice
Lloyd, her assistant, Mrs.
Mary C. Bromage, and
Miss Ethel McCormick, di-
rector of coed undergrad-
uate activities, will head
the serving staff in the
grill room. They will be
assisted by directors of co-
ed residences. Two rooms
will be equipped with vari-
out types of games.
