The American public whose gifts
have made possible USO Clubs and
the organization's other activities,
will be the guest of honor from 2 p.m.
to 6 p.m. today, when the USO here,
and in nearly 3,000 other localities,
will hold Open House on the fourth
anniversary of its founding.
The USO was legally born on Feb.
4, 1941. However, the idea and plan-
ning for it started in October of 1940
as the nation was preparing its de-
fenses under the threat of war. Now,
on its fourth birthday, USO looks at
a record of service seldom, if ever,
surpassed-a record made possible
only by the American people through
their contributions to the National
For the first time today, a voice-
recorder will be available at the Ann
Arbor U8O Club. The recording ma-
chine will be for the use of men and
women serving with the armed forces
who wish to send records of their
voices to their homes.
Army and Navy personnel sta-
tioned on campus will provide the
entertainment for the afternoon, ac-
cording to Mrs. S. J. Paup and Mrs.
Frank Oakes, co-chairmen of the
local USO program committee. A
varied program has been planned
including selections by the Navy
Choir and specialty acts by several
members of Co. A.
Host to Over 68,934
The Ann Arbor USO has been
functioning for just a little over a
year, during which time it has played
host to over 68,934 men and women
in the armed forces. The USO first
began its activities at the League but
increasing military personnel on
campus necessitated larger facilities
and thus was brought about the

Paul Bunyan To Be Honored
At Campus Birthday Party;
Billy Layton's Band Will Play
An all-campus birthday party hon-
oring the famous lumberjack, Paul
Bunyan, will be presented by the For-
estry Club from 8:30 p. m. to mid-
night, Friday in the Rainbow Room
of the Union.
Colorful decorations, including the
distinguished personages of Paul and
his blue ox, Babe will help transport
party guests to the invigorating cli-
mate of the Great North Woods.
Layton's Band to Turn Lumberjack
Bill Layton and his band will turn
lumberjack for the evening and ap-
pear in their best bluejeans and plaid
shirts which will be standard dress
for everyone for the evening. Layton
has also agreed to help foresters Paul
Reis, Jack Stanford, Ted MKillop,

in leading guests in community sing-
Other arrangements for the cele-
bration are being made by committee

Navy V-12 men stationed on cam-
pus have been granted liberty until
12:30 a. m. The Paul Bunyan For-
mal is an open dance for which any-
one may purchase tickets. Ticket
sales will be held from 12:45 p. m.
to 1:30 p. m. tomorrow and from 4
p. m. to 5 p. m. Tuesday at the Travel
Desk of the Union.
Johnson, publicity chairman for the
dance, said that all students interest-
ed in American history should be ac-
quainted with the fact that Paul
Bunyan was the first man to open up
the vast forests of the Northwest.
According to Johnson, Bunyan was
disturbed by the disappearance of
trees in the northern Lake States
and so decided to explore the country
to the West, where he had heard of
giant trees and mighty rivers.

Mhorning and headed West." John-
son said, "Quickly covering Michigan,
Wisconsin, and Minnesota, he strode
out on the Great Plains. Since he
was in a hurry, he didn't bother to
remove his snowshoes. This caused
him no end of trouble, for the heat
of the plains country warped his left
snowshoe slightly, and he ended up
in Mexico instead of Oregon.
It took him a whole day to retrace
his steps from Mexico northward,"

Variety of Roles
Students in the Play Production
classes often find themselves cast in
strange roles, changing from one
play to the next, and a good example
occurs with Jean Parsons, '46.
Cast as Lovely Lisa, the dancing
doll in the Steadfast Tin Soldier,'
which was recently presented by the
Play Producticn Department, Miss
Parsons danced as the toy doll with
whom the soldier falls in love. .
However, in the current produc-
tion "Skin of Our Teeth," Miss Par-
sons is cast as the "Smallest Dino-
saur' . . . and will creep around the
stage on all fours.
"I love the variety of the roles,"
she said, "and the experience is won-
derful . . . but from dancing doll to
dinosaur is certainly a jump!"
