'Saturday Grid Shuffle' Open to
Coeds, Servicemen, Civilians

Game Broadcast Is
Part of Program
The "Saturday Grid Shuffle." a
brand-new all campus dance which
will combine listening to the Michi-
gan-Pennsylvania football game and
dancing to snappy new records, will
be given from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Satur-
day in the main ballroom of the
Michigan Union.
According to Paul John, chairman
of the event, -the progress of the
game at Philadelphia will be charted
on a miniature football field. The
"Grid Graph," as the device has been
named, will be prominently displayed
in the ballroom. The "radio announ-
cer" will post the play-by-play de-
scription on the chart.
Everyone Invited
"Everything has been arranged so
that students can enjoy the game
and have a good time dancing too,"
explained John. "Everyone is invited
-couples or single. We want you to
come and get acquainted."
Admission will be free, as the main
Dressings Unit
To Open Here
The Michigan League Surgical
Dressings Unit under the chairman-
ship of Harriet Fishel will be open
from 1 p. m. to 5 p. m. Wednesday,
November 6.
The Dressings Unit will be open
each Wednesday, Thursday and Fri-
day from 1 p. m. to 5 p. m. in the
Kalamazoo Room located on the sec-
ond floor of the Michigan League.
A part of the Ann Arbor Red Cross
Unit the League Surgical Dressings
Unit is organized and directed by co-
eds and helps to fill the community
Coeds who volunteer for this es-
sential war work are given instruc-
tions in rolling various types of ban-
dages. Red Cross requirements de-
mand that headdresses be worn
(which are provided) in addition to
cotton blouses or smocks. Nail polish
is prohibited.
A meeting for instructors will be
held at 5 p. m. Tuesday, November 5
at which time plans for the forth-
coming year will be discussed. All
instructors are urged to attend this
meeting. 4

purpose of the affair is to have'stu-
dents come and have a good time.
"We especially like to invite the
freshmen to come. We know that
you don't know many people on cam-
pus and this will be an excellent
opportunity to meet more friends.
"There's a lot of talk about the dat-
ing shortage, but the 'Saturday Grid
Shuffle' may even solve that prob-
lem," John added.
Tap Room Open
The Union Tap Room will be open
all afternoon for those who want
refreshments. A radio with the grid
contest will be on, so no one need
miss any of it.
At present the Union plans to have
dances of this nature throughout the
rest of the semester. They will take
the place of the "G.I. Stomps" which
were only open to servicemen: The
influx of some 300 returned veterans
necessitates the planning of campus
functions which will entertain both
civilians and servicemen.
"Enthusiastic support of the 'Sat-
urday Grid Shuffle' will encourage
student organizations to sponsor ad-
ditional all-campus functions," John
Blood Donors
May Register
Registration of blood donors will
be held from 2 p. m. to 5 p. m. to-
day in the lobby of the League, ac-
cording to Jean Loree, secretary of
the Women's War Council and chair-
man of the blood bank.
The Red Cross Canteen will be in
Ann Arbor from 12:30 to 4:30 next
Thursday and Friday at the WAB.
Persons who are unable to register
at the League may call the Red Cross
Headquarters in North Hall, 2-5546.1
"Student donations are absolutely
necessary to maintain the Ann Arbor
quota." Mrs. Carl D. Malcolm, of
the Ann Arbor Red Cross said in a
recent interview. "Students have co-
operated during the past year and we
are counting on their continued sup-
port", she said.
Blood bank registration will be
held each month, and the donations
may be given on the second Thursday
and Friday of each month.

Freshman Plus
Advisor Caught
In Hectic Maze
A single coed and a 14 man escort
is only one of the many strange
phenomena of orientation week.
The lucky coed was an advisor for
a group of freshmen men. Not hav-
ing had time to learn that a lonely
coed is nothing to worry about at
the University, the 14 freshmen re-
fused to let their advisor walk home
alone and insisted that they accom-
pany her-en masse.
Information Please
One of the focal points of orienta-
tion activities was the information
booth in the lobby of the League.
Prize question of the week was asked
by a sailor who elbowed his way
through hordes of freshmen and
transfer women and hopefully asked
the information. clerk if she would
please help him . "I'm looking for
three strange girls," he said. "I
don't know what their names are or
what they look like, but I wish you
would find them for me." Of course
the clerk looked over the 1,100
strange girls and immediately spotted
the right three.
Orientation was only a part of the
many topics discussed at the infor-
mation booth. Every third person
was eagerly searching for informa-
tion on how to get trunks from the
railroad station, where to buy apples,
and the telephone number of the
League house on Fourth Street.
Where Am I
Persons asking the questions were-
n't the only ones who were confused.
One information clerk attempted to
direct a coed from the League to Fer-
ry Field and failed to find the League
on the city map. Another clerk took
time off to classify and found herself
walking toward State Street rather
than Waterman Gymnasium.
After a week of finding lost groups
and advisors, lost freshman and lost
buildings the information booth was
disbanded for another semester and
new students were put on their own.
Layton To Play
At Union Hop
Opening the fall season of week-
ly Union dances, Bill Layton and his
orchestra will play from 9 p. m. to
midnight tomorrow and Saturday in
the main ballroom of the Michigan
New arrangements of "It Had To
Be You," "Summer Time," and "You
Always Hurt the One You Love"
will be offered in the usual swingy
style of Michigan's favorite dance
Vocalist Judy Ward will be on
hand, as will Whitey Benson, Bill's
outstanding drummer. Also on the
rooster for the week-end will be
Dwight Daily, first alto saxophone
player and composer of the orche-
stra's theme song.
Layton took over the orchestra in
spring and since then has per-
formed at many dances at the League
and also out-door ones during the
summer on .Palmer Field. He re-
turned to Michigan September 16
after playing a stand at Hamilton
It will be the Union's policy this
year to admit only those persons who
hold Union cards. This will mean
that Union dances will be exclusively
for Michigan Students and their

JQP ?Committee

mittee will meet at 4 p. m. today in
the League, Nora MacLaughlin, gen-
