Theme Is Time
The theme of Recognition Night
will be Time, in the sense of the
hours which have been put in by
independent women in war work.
Outstanding records in war activities
and high scholastic averages recog-
Speaker of the evening will be Dr.
Foburn T. Brumbaugh, executive
secretary of the Council of Churches
of Ietroit. Dr. Brumbaugh has spent
many years in Japan and will speak
on the topic of "I Know Japan."
During his stay in Japan, he was
able to observe the local ideas of
religion, social customs, and especial-
ly the life of young people. These
personal observations have given Dr.
Brumbaugh an insight into the prob-
lem of why Japanese people are as
they are today.
Songs To Be Judged
Entries in the contest for an assem-
bly theme song will be judged by
Frances Bostwick, '4SM, Beverley
Solorow, '46SM, Rose Derderian, '46
SM, and Jean Gilman, '4SM. The
winner of the contest will be an-
nounced during the evening. Also on
thie program will be original, humor-
pus skits by the honor societies of
Wyvern, Senior Society, and Mortar
"We hope that all independent
women realize that this is the one
night in the year on which they may
gather to honor their outstanding
members," Claire Macaulay, chair-
man of Recognition Night central
committee said. According to Miss
Macaulay, all those who attend are
asked to wear heels.
The Distinguished Service Medal
was recently awarded to Colonel Ov-
eta Culp Hobby, director of the
Women's Army Corps and the first
woman in the army to receive this
recognition, although six civilians
were so decorated after World War I.
The citation read that Colonel Hob-
by had, rendered "outstanding ser-
vice," both asdirector of the former
Women's Auxiliary Army Corps and
as chief of the Wacs.


First Rec-Rally
To Feature Six
Sports, Dancing
Featuring six sports, bridge, and
old fashioned square-dancing, the
WAA Board will sponsor the first
Rec-Rally of the year from 7:30 p.m.
to 11:00 p. m. Friday in Waterman
and Barbour Gyms.
Volley-ball, shuffleboard, deck
tennis, badminton and pingpong will
be the sports offered according to
Martha Allen, equipment chairman.
Bridge, for those not interested in
the more strenuous activities, will
be held in the Dance Studio.
Square Dancing To Be Held
Square-dancing, under the direc-
tion of Mr. Howard Leibee of the
Department of Physical Education
for Men and accompanied by a
Grange orchestra, will take place
in Waterman Gym from 8:30 p.m.
to 10 p.m. It is not necessary to
know how to do the dances, said
Mr. Leibee, for instruction will be
given before each new dance is at-
Servicemen stationed on the cam-
pus are especially invited to this
function, as well as the coeds and
it will be possible to come either with
dates or singly.
Small Admission Charge
Upperclassmen wil remember the
Rec-Rallies of the past years, for
the WAA Board began them in the
spring of 1943, to meet the demand
for "a place where we can have
sports and square dancing to a real
old time orchestra!" Since then
there has been a Rec-Rally at least
once every semester. This event,
will be the first that the present
WAA Board' has sponsored.
There will be a small admission
charge to cover the cost of the equip-
ment, and those who wish to play
volley ball are requested to wear
rubber soled shoes.
Some coeds are still needed to act
as sports chairmen for the Rec-
Rally and those interested are asked
to contact Alene Loeser at 23119.
It is not 'necessary to have a know-
ledge of the sport, as these coeds will
not be asked to instruct.
Bond Belles To Be
Honored At Dinner
Engraved parchments will be pre-
sented to the two Bond Belle team
members who made outstanding rec-
ords in the recent War Loan Drive
at a steak dinner for all Bond Belle
captains to be held at 6:15 -p.m.
The awards will be made to those
women who made the greatcet per-
centage of sales in proportion to the
number of faculty members for
whom they actually were responsible.,
Bond Belles accounted for approxi-
mately $62,500 worth of war bonds,
sold by the University during the
drive, which was much greater than
the established goal of $50,000 for
the teams.

New Ideas for Theme, Songs
Of Annual JG Play Are Needed

Original ideas are needed for Jun-
ior Girls' Play, which will be given
early in spring, Frances Goldberg,
chairman of JG Play, announced yes-
JG Play is an annual affair which
is given traditionally by junior women
to honor graduating senior women.
This year, contrary to the practice
of last year, only junior women will
be eligible to participate.
Ideas must be written on slips of
paper which will be available in Miss
Ethel MacCormick's office in the
League, beginning tomorrow. A box
also is placed in the office in which
the slips are to be put.
The deadline for these entries
will be Saturday, Feb. 24. The
information desired on the slips is
the name of the woman, telephone,
school and year, what she wants to
do, her experience, specialties, and
ideas for the script.
Although the script is the main
item at this point, entries with ideas
for songs, dances, or short skits are
also needed. This year's script must

easily into episodes, chapters, or skits
so that each one can be practiced in-
Official's Club
ToHold Meeting
"All coeds interested in officiating
at the intramural basketball games
should attend a meeting of the Bas-
ketball Officials' Club at 4:30 p.m.,
Tuesday at the WAB," stated Irene'
Turner, '45, manager of the club.
A basketball official's guide, which
may be purchased at any athletic
equipment store, should be brought
to the meeting so that the rules may
be clearly discussed.
"No previous experience is neces-
sary for entrance to the club. Many
officials are needed to help us con-
tinue the intramural sports," con-
tinued Miss Turner.
At the end of the training period,
two tests will be given, one written
and the other practical. The written
test is given to judge the coed's
knowledge of the rules themselves;
the practical test to determine how
well the coed can apply the rules.
"The technique of officiating will be
acquired by practice in officiating
in several games under supervision,"
concluded Miss Turner.
Former'U' Student
Destined To Receive
Letter 39 Feet Long
Dick Keuhn, former V-12 on cam-
pus, will probably receive the sur-
prise of his life when the letter com-
posed by girls in Betsy Barbour
reaches him at the Marine Hospital
in Detroit this week.
Made up of stories, poetry, car-
toons, quips and sketehes, the letter
measured 39 feet in length when it
was completed. Guaranteed to bring
a laugh to Dick, was the thumbnail
sketch of the typical Barbour girl,
picturing her as "three and one half
inches tall, weight; 230 pounds, hair;
yes, and eyes; two."
Dick was injured while wrestling
here last year and has been confined
to the hospital since.

dividually by a group of women and
then be brought together to form the
complete production. However, the
idea is not to have a lotaof discon-
nected episodes, but to have a con-
tinuous plot or theme running
through all of them.
In addition to ideas for the plot,
those women who would like to
sing, dance, act, or direct the play
are asked to sign up on the same
slips of paper. A stage force to
arrange for properties and scen-
ery is also needed.

ing up now.

Special Students
To Hold Meeting
Coeds in 'Private Homes Given
Chance To Become Organized
All independent women who have
been given special permission from
the Dean's Office to live in private
homes in Ann Arbor, are asked to
attend an initial organization meet-
ing at 4 p. in., Monday in the League,
Florene Wilkins, President of As-
sembly Council, announced:
This meeting is being held to help
unite the numerous independent
women living in private homes be-
cause the great influx of students
in the past year has surpassed the
University residence capacity. All
married women attending the Uni-
versity are invited to attend and also
the students whose permanent resi-
dences are in Ann Arbor.
Coeds Miss Activities
Mrs. Bromage, Assistant Dean of
Women, has suggested this meeting
as she felt that many of these coeds,
in some cases isolated from campus,
were missing the all-important so-
cial aspect of their college life. That
they are in many cases prevented
from war activities and social func-
tions. It is her desire to unite these
women in an organization especially
designed to fit the needs of a widely
separated group.
The coeds themselves will decide'
at this meeting whether or not they
wish to continue such an organiza-
tion. Hours of meetings will be
planned to fit the schedules of the
girls who are working. If any girl
will be unable to attend this meeting
they are urgently asked to contact
Florene Wilkins at 2-3225, since as
complete a record of this special
student group is desired as possible.
Problems To Be Discussed
It is the desire of Assembly Coun-
cil to incorporate these students into
Assembly as the third main division,
if the students should continue the
organization. Students are asked to
bring any prolems or ideas for the
organization to the meeting.
"Most of the women have been
contacted by mail, but if in any case
an oversight has been made, I sin-
cerely hope t.hat they will attend
this initial meeting," Florene Wilkins
said. Students should consult the
bulletin board over the main desk
in the League for the room where the
meeting will be held.
