New Office Set Up
A closer bond between independent
and affiliated women on campus was
established yesterday when Assembly
and Panhel saw their plans for a
united office materialize in a new
office in the Kalamazoo Room on
the second floor of the League. The
Kalamazoo Room is a large open
room, and staff members from both
committees will have their desks
there. In this way their activities
will be more closely co-ordinated.

Shortage of Cigarettes
Probed in St. Paul4
ST. PAUL, MINN., NOV. 3-(P)-
Victor E. Anderson, U. S. District
Attorney, said today that Attorney
General Francis Biddle had designat-
ed St. Paul as the "guinea pig" area
for a national probe of the cigarette
shortage and that a grand jury to
study the matter will meet in St.
Paul if it is decided to call one.
Officials of the district office of
price administration, at the same
time, announced the start of an in-
vestigation, and two investigators I
were assigned to study retail cigarette.

Sophomores are particularly urged
to support their class project. Now.
more than ever, there is a great need
for volunteers. It has been an-
nounced that first semester freshmen
are also eligible to work in the
Former Workers Needed
Volunteers who have already work-
ed at the hospitals are not required
to attend a special orientation meet-
ing from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday at
University Hospital. The room will
be posted, and the meeting is com-
pulsory for all new volunteers,
All former volunteers may start
work on Monday by reporting to the
captain on duty in the volunteer
office, or to Miss Beardslee, in charge
of volunteers.
Though a large number of women
are needed, Virginia Councell, '47
chairman of the project, stated that
they must realize the importance of
consistent volunteer work. At Uni-
versity Hospital, coeds are needed
in wards, on private floors, in the
clinics, or at the Galen stand. They
also work as typists and file clerks.
Jackets Furnished
Workers are furnished with blue
jackets, designating them as volun-
teers, and are requested to wear dark
skirts, white washable blouse, stock-
ings, apd low heels.
Joan Wilk, assistant chairman in
charge of St. Joseph's hospital, an-
nounced that coeds may begin work
there on Monday. She stated that
they are not required to attend an
orientation meeting, but may sign up
at any time in Miss Wanzig's office
on the first floor of the hospital
They are also asked to work foui
hours a week, and are especially
needed at meal time to help pass
patients' trays.
St. Joseph Uniform
Women working at St. Joseph's
Hospital are requested to wear a skirt
and washable blouse. They may work
in the wards, in the office, or with
children. Coeds living in the vicinity
of St. Joseph's Hospital are p'articu-
larly urged to volunteer their ser-
For the third consecutive year, the
sophomore class will promote volun-
teer work in the local hospitals to
help alleviate the shortage of nurses
and ward helpers. In former years
the sophomore class sponsored Soph
Cabaret, but that was during peace-
time. Now it has "gone to war."
At the present time, the need for
hospital workers is greater than ever
before since more nurses have left
civilian hospitals to care for return-
ing wounded veterans.

Instructors for Unit
Will Attend Meeting
Instructors of the Surgical Dress-
ings Unit will hold a meeting at 5
p.m. Tuesday in the League.
This meeting is for the purpose of
organizing the fork for the coming
year and it is essential that all
instructors attend. The Dressings
Unit, located in the Kalamazoo Room
of the League will open at 1 p.m.
Wednesday. Thereafter the Unit will
be open from 1 to 5 p.m. every Wed-
nesday, Thursday, and Friday. This
is essential war work and all coeds
interested are urged to attend, ac-
cording to Harriet Fischel, chairman.

Junior Women
May Register
At JGP Booth
Outdoor Signing in Place
Of Former Mass Meetings;
Enthusiastic Coeds Needed
Junior women who have not al-
ready volunteered to work on JGP
will have another opportunity to
sign up for the various committees
from 10 a. m. to 4 p. m. Tuesday
and Wednesday at an outdoor booth
in the center of the diagonal.
This method of signing up juniors
will take the place of a mass meet-
ing which was previously announced.
The booth will be manned on both
days by members of the JGP central
committee who will be willing and
ready to answer questions about the
work of the different committees.
"We need many enthusiastic work-
zrs right away," explained Nora Mac
Laughlin, general chairman, "as we
are planning to get to work imme-
diately. Our first big stamp and
bond campaign will be synchronized
with the opening of the Sixth War
Loan Drive which is scheduled to be-
gin November 20,"
Plans Still Being Made
The plans for this extensive cam-
paign are still being formulated but
the central committee expects to an-
nounce several large affairs in the
near future. Tentatively, the com-
cittee plans to open the drive with
a Bow Day at which time multi-
colored bows with stamps attached to
them will be sold.
According to Miss Mac Laughlin,
there are ten committees, every one
of which needs many members. The
largest committee of them all should
be the special events committee, head-
ed by Frances Goldberg. This com-
mittee will work on special affairs
of all kinds and the duties are inter-
esting and varied.
New System Announced
Jane Strauss, who is in charge of
selling bonds and stamps in sorori-
ties, will initiate a new plan this
term. Instead of having each soror-
ity appoint one of its members to
take charge of the sales in her own
house, Miss Strauss plans to have a
member of a different sorority take
charge of the sales. This plan, it is
hoped, will improve sales in that
girls will be more likely to buy stamps
from a woman from a different house.
In order to put this into effect, Miss
Strauss will need a committee of at
least fifteen women.
Dormitories will be taken care of
by Claire Macaulay. This is a vital
part of the total amount of sales
which will be needed for JGP to
achieve its goal, so Miss Macaulay
needs workers, too.
League House Method Changed
Rita Bregman, league house chair-
man, will also introduce a new meth-
od in leaguehouse sales. The league
houses will be divided up into eight
zones. Each zone chairman will ap-
point one member in each house
within her district to be in charge,
of the sales.The zone chairmen will
get their stamps and bonds from
Miss Bregman at the league and then
will distribute them to the house
chairman. This will eliminate con-
fusion at the league and will be a
good double check. Miss Bregman
would like any one interested in be-
coming a zone chairman to sign up.
Two Booths To Be Open
Jean Hotchkin, chairman of the
booth committee, announced that
there will be two booths open this
term-one in Angell Hall and one in
the League. Women are needed to
man these booths. Juniors who sign

up for this committee will be expect-
ed to work one hour a week, or more
if they like.
Betty Vaughn, secretary, is in
charge of the corsage and bow com-
mittee, which will begin making bows
for the drive soon. Jane Arner,
treasurer, needs workers to help her
keep the JGP books straight.
"Stamping Around" To Be Printed I
Ann Schutz, publicity chairman,
will need women to work on the
"Stamping Around" booklet, which
will be published monthly, contain-
ing all the JGP news. She will also
be in charge of special stunts adver-
tising stamps and bonds. According
to Miss Schutz, the first "Stamping
Around" will come out in conjunc-
tion with the opening of the Sixth
War Loan Drive.
Poster chairman, Betty Hendel,
says that she needs any one who can
even letter. Tady Martz, skits and
songs chairman, can use "any one
who can sing, dance, act, or write."
The skits and songs committee will
perform for the many clubs in town
and outside-of-campus activities.
