Annual International Ball Today
To Feature Layton's Orchestra

Foreign students on campus will
play host to University students and
faculty from 8:30 p.m.- to 1 a.m.
tonight at the annual International
Ball in the Rainbow Room of the
Bill Layton and his orchestra will
furnish the music for the Ball, which
will have a cosmopolitan atmosphere,
with students from over forty coun-
tries, Latin-American, European, and
Oriental, attending.
Edward Salgado, a prominent Fili-
pino artist, who planned the decora-
tions for the semi-formal dance
asked that foreign guests wear their
native costumes to be in keeping
with the theme of the Ball. The
dance will be formal enough to re-
quire long dresses for the women and
informaol enough to permit a choice
of tux or business suits for the men.
All Are Invited
George Hall, general chairman of
the dance, emphasized the fact that
the dance is for everyone on campus,
students and faculty alike.
Proceeds from the Ball will go to
the Emergency Fund for Foreign
Students. This fund has been estab-
lished to aid foreign students attend-
ing the University. The Ball is given
annually to swell the fund.

Viptory Needs
Nursing Help
Nursing is beyond a doubt war
work with a future, for even after
the war, nurses will be in demand in
veterans' hospitals and in the re-
building of civilian health services
restricted by hostilities; yet to win
the war and to make a worthy peace,
America needs more nurses.
The government has already done
something practical about the short-
age, with the passing of the Bolton-
Bailey Bill by Congress in 1940, pro-
viding for payment of nurses' train-
ing for girls interested in nursing as
a career who are unable to afford the
expenses of getting the education.
This bill assures payment for the
tuition, living expenses, uniforms and
extra allowances of girls who enlist
in the United States Nurse Cadet
During the first nine months the
allowance is $15 a month, during the
next 15 to 21 months it is $20 a
month, and $30 monthly for the last
six months. After graduation the
nurses may go into military, civil-
ian or government service.

USO To Hold
'Holiday' Party'
If you think you had a hangoverj
from New Year's Eve, there's no tell-
ing how you'll feel after celebrating
the best holiday of the year in one
And that's exactly what's been
planned for the Holiday Inn Party to
be held from 8 p. m. to midnight to-
morrow at the USO.
They've moved all the holidays up
to this particular night to bring you
an evening packed with fun for all.
The various rooms will be decorated
to represent St. Valentine's Day (with
hearts and cupids) Thanksgiving
Day (complete with fat turkeys and
autumn colors) and many many more
festive days of the year.
Dancing to records in the upstairs
ballroom will be the order of the eve-
ning with some wonderful entertain-
ment during intermission. An adagio
dancer and acrobatic act will be the
featured highlights of the entertain-
ment all designed toward making a
perfect evening.
Regiment V is in charge of ar-
rangements for the dance. All Jun-
ior Hostesses of this regiment are re-
quired to attend the dance or send a
substitute registered hostess in their
place. All other Junior Hostesses,
however, are cordially invited to at-

'Private Home'
To Organize
For the purpose of organizing the
numerous independent women living
in private homes in Ann Arbor, there
will be an organization meeting at
4 p. m., Monday in the League, Flor-
ine Wilkins, president of Assembly
Council, announced today.
This meeting is the result of a
suggestion by Mrs. Bromage, As-
sistant Dean of Women, who felt
that students having special permis-
sion from the Dean's Office to live in
private homes were missing the op-
portunities and privileges afforded1

ed houses.?

Ann Arbor's 8,000 students are
slowly recovering from the exhaust-
ing experience of getting home for{
Christmas and back again in five
Students started out cheerfully
wishing each other Merry Christmas
in Ann Arbor's own inimitable cold
while waiting for late trains, except
the resourceful ones who went to
Jackson to get a seat. Many were
still happy enough to sing carols sit-
ting on suitcases in aisles, or standing
in line three hours to get into the
dining-car. But those who live far-
ther afield were discouraged by three
and four hour waits at way-stations,
and returned home morose, dejected,
and apparently on the verge of col-
lapse from too much studying.
Coming back was even worse.
Everyone who had been able to get
their hands on any was full of
holiday cheer, which was nice for
them but made sleep difficult for
their neighbors. Intellectuals be-
came involved in heated and noisy
arguments about Russia, or possi-
bly racial intolerance. Non-intel-
lectuals reminisced or snored, loud-
ly in either case. One conscience-
stricken coed read Carlyle's "Past
and Present" aloud all night, to the
edification of her neighbors.
It seemed that half the student
body returned on the Wolverine
Thursday morning. One unfortunate
coed rode across Canada on the plat-
form between cars in the midst of a
.howling blizzard, while the snow
sifted in over her open-toed shoes.
She finally got into the car and sat
on the floor, to be stepped over or

on by 127 people, by official count.
One of those hardy venturers who
fought their way up and down the
train all night for reasons of their
own remarked critically-"You can't
tell if they're people or not." By
this time the sodden lumps through
which he was plowing were begin-
ning to wonder, too.
One thoughtful. gentleman,
doubtless wishing to relieve the
general atmosphere of depression
in the war, wished everyone a
Happy New Year at regular fifteen-
minute intervals. The train finally
arrived a mere three hours late,

Coeds Face Challenge in 1945

Capturiiig Youig-lowiier's

> ,,;. ,
'" ' sue;
; j/d
,. f1 :

Those of you who toasted the new
year with, "The end of the war in
'45" have presented before yourself
a challenge.
Yes, a challenge to see that you as
an individual do something toward
achieving that end. Many will accept
that challenge but a still greater
nuxmber will be content to sit in
warm dormitory, sorority, and league
house rooms and do nothing.
War Work
There is no need for each coed to
rush to the nearest recruiting desk.
or to the employment office of the
neaiest war plant but there is a need
for each coed to give some of her
time and effort toward some volun-
teer war work.
Many women find themselves in a
position where they are forced to
work to finance either all or part 'of
their education. These women are
rot expected to go all out for war
work, they are doing enough.-But a.
larger majority of women are not
dependent on paid jobs and do no
volunteer war work.
These coeds are the slackers of the
campus, the lounge .lizards :of Michi-
gan, and those who complain the;
loudest about shortages of cigarettes,
nylon stockings and chocolate candy
Volun.eer Groups Need Aid
It is these women that volunteer
war work groups appeal to for help.
The Surgical :Dressings Unit, Hos-
pital Volunteer Project, and Child

Care Projec need the help and sup-
port of every coed on campus-we
cannot afford to let them down.
The Surgical Dressings Unit has
been assigned a large quota to fill by
the American Red Cross, easy to do
if only more coeds will volunteer.
From 1 to 5 p.m. every Wednesday,
Thursday, and Friday in the Kala-
mzoo Room of the League the Unit
is open. Coeds may work for any
length of time they desire, but they
ar, needed.
Both St. Joseph's Hospital and the
University Hospital are in dire need'
of volunteer help on any day. Re-
pea,"ed requests for more volunteers
have gone by completely unnoticed.
Due to wartime shortages of hospital
help every coed worker relieves some
of the strain on already overworked
Total Effort Urged
Child Care volunteers are also
needed to work with children of all
age levels. Coeds may act as, Proxy
Parents, Girl Reserve or Girl Scout
A deep personal satisfaction is
gained by doing any war work. A
feeling tat you as an individual in
some small way are aiding the final
push for- total victory.
To those who do something all we
can say is "thank you." To those
who do nothing all we can say is
"won't you try now?"
The war has affected every one of
us. We all have our part to play in
bringing victory in 1945.
