Campus Homecoming Exhibits
To Be Judged Saturday, Nov.11
0>

All displays feting Michigan's first
wartime homecoming must be ready
for judging by 9 a.m., Saturday, Nov.
11, it was announced yesterday by
George Darrow, NROTC, secretary of
the Union executive council.
Winners of the display contest in
both the men's and women's divisions
will be announced at the half of the
Illinois-Michigan game Saturday af-
ternoon. Trophies for the best exhib-
its will be awarded at the homecom-
ing dance at the Union featuring Bill
Layton and his orchestra Saturday
evening.
Display 'Dope'
Every organized campus residence
is eligible to - prepare an exhibit.
These will probably concern the
game, the war effort, the 1918 armis-
tice, or the homecoming itself.
Fraternities that have leased their
houses to the University for women's
residences will have first chance to
decorate their own houses. If they
have not informed the girls by Tues-
day that they intend to do so, then
the girls may decorate the houses on
their own.
Campus Cooperation
Some fraternities plan to cooperate
with the girls living in their houses,
both doing the decorations and both
receiving credit should they be tro-
phy winners. In such cases the dis-
plays may be entered into either the
male or female contest division.
Total expenses on the displays and
house decorations will be limited to
five dollars. All houses that expect
to compete in the judging should
notify either the Student Offices in
the Union or the Undergraduate
office in the League before Friday,
Nov. 10.
Secretarial, Stenographic, Bookkeep-
ing, Accounting, Business Machines.
Qualify quickly for a position with
a future. Free Placement Service.

Post-war Plans
'Must Include
Women Also
Women workers will remain an
integral part of the nation with ade-
quate post-war planning to use the
full labor force of the country for a
record prosperity, according to John
D. Durand, Department of Commerce
economist, writing in the current is-
sue of International Labor Review,
publication of the International Lab-
or Office.
Dr. Durand's predictions are all
encouragement to those who, like
many women' now in the University,
will be seeking employment in the
next few years. He predicts a total
labor force of more than 59,000,000
in 1950 compared with 54,000,000 be-
fore the war, of which 16,500,000 or
17,000,000 will be women.
One out of every three civilian jobs,
he stated, is now held by a woman,
many of whom are "learning skills
for which there will still be an ex-
cellent market after the war." Oth-
ers, he added, "are acquiring a last-
ing taste for the additional income
and thereconomic independence
which their jobs have given them."
He also foresees a rise in the age
level, despite the usual preference
for younger women by employers, a
situation which will call for careful
planning by employers, labor unions
and governmental agencies.
"If record prosperity is to be at-
tained after the war," Durand said,
"the need to provide jobs for a much
larger number of women should be
recognized in the plans which are
now being laid to maintain employ-
ment in the post-war period.
"Such a supply of labor," he stated,
"is a challenge to American industry
and government."
INVEST IN VICTORY

'U' Qlee Club
Gives Plans
For Fall Term
Women's Glee Club rehearsals,
which will be held from 4 p. m. to 5
p. m. Monday and Friday and from
7:30 p. m. to 8:30 p. m. Wednesday,
in the Grand Rapids Room in the
League, will open a new season of
Glee Club activities, Jean Gilman,
'45M, president of the Club, an-
nounced.
Plans for the 60-voice Glee Club
this year include a Christmas con-
cert, some out-of-town appearances,
and if possible, a series of weekly
radio programs. In the past, they
have sung for various affairs on cam-
pus and at Percy Jones Hospital in'
Battle Creek, presented concerts with
the Co. A Soldier Choir, and pro-
duced the operetta "Tom Sawyer,"
which was written by Bill Sawyer,
former director of the Glee Club.
The Women's Glee Club, which has
been directed for the past 3 years by
Bill Sawyer, will start the season
with their new director, Marguerite
Hood. Miss Hood is a member of the
School of Music faculty and director
of the May Festival oYuth Chorus.
The club's repertoire willrinclude
songs arranged by Fred Waring and
some modern compositions.
Officers of the Club are: Jean
Gilman, president; Rhea Christian,
vice-president; Ruth McNeil, secre-
tary; and Virginia Weadock, treas-
urer. A tryout meeting will be held
at 5 p. m. Monday in the League for
those who wish to sing with the Glee
Club. Coeds are asked to bring their
eligibility cards with them for the
rehearsal and the tryout meeting.
Gloves Warm
Coeds' Hands
By DONNA GUIMARAES
While winter winds affect every-
one; it seems to the coed that the
'hand that totes the book' gets more
than it's share of the cold gales.
And it is to the better protection of
he hands, that the glove .and mitten
manufacturers have turned their ef-
forts. This year the apparel for the
coed's hands combine warmth, nov-
elty and usefulness.
Lamb's Wool For Warmth
Lamb's wool has been used to line
the gloves and multi colored wool
. warmth via two materials. Hand-
knit mittens in navy blue and white
done in a Norwegian design are for
those who prefer to make their own.
Huge mitts of sheep skin, which come
almost up to the elbow are a sure
protection for the arm as well as
the hand.
The old favorites, angora mittens
are still popular, made in pastel col-
ors or white. One pair designed espe-
cially for evening is made of black
angora and wool and is embroidered
with gold sequins. Tiny caps made
of matching angora wool are also be-
ing worn on many of the campuses.
Trick For Angoras
A trick useful for those who posess
angora mittens is that of keeping
them in the refrigerator before wear-
ing them. While the initial feel is
not that of warmth, it is rewarding
in that the fuzz's that usually comes
off of the mittens refrains from do-
ing so.
The traditional favorite, pigskin, is
still a headliner, the majority of the
coeds being of the opinion that 'noth-
ing looks as well as leather gloves
with tweeds'. Pigskin gloves come
in an assortment of colors, most of

them in the brown and tawny shades.
A new note for dressy wear is struck
by spanking white pigskins, which
have the advantage over their doe-
skin sisters by being washable.

JQP To Recruit
Junior Women
An outdoor booth in the center of
the diagonal taking the place of a
mass meeting which was previously
announced, will be manned by mem-
bers of the JGP committee from 10
a. m. to 4 p. m. Tuesday and Wed-
nesday for all junior women who
have not already volunteered to work
on JGP, according to Nora Mac-
Laughlin, general chairman.
Many workers are needed as the
Project's first big undertaking for the
year, a stamp and bond campaign, is
scheduled to open with the Sixth
War Loan Drive on November 20.
Plans for this extensive campaign
are still being made but the central
committee expects to announce sev-
eral large events in the future.
According to Miss MacLaughlin,
there are ten committees, every one
of which needs many enthusiastic
members. The largest committee
will be the special events committee,
headed by Frances Goldberg. Oth-
er JGP committees are those con-
cerned with selling bonds and stamps
in sororities, dormitories and in
league houses, a booth committee, a
corsage and bow committee, which
will begin making bows for the drive
soon, a publicity committee, a poster
committee, and last but not least, a
skits and song committee which per-
forms for many clubs in town and
outside-of-campus activities.

HOOT'S DAUGHTER-Daughter of "Hoot" Gibson of film fame, Lois
has swapped a cow pony for an Air-WAC uniform and a jeep. Her
father taught her to ride almost as soon as she could walk, but she
says the jeep can be as rough as a bronco.

Six WAC Leadin
in' Greatest Show
Six new leading ladies-Col. Flor-
ence Blanchfield, Army Nurse Corps,
Col. Oveta Culp Hobby, of the Wacs,
Capt. Sue S. Dauser, Navy Nurse
Corps, Capt. Mildred H. McAfee, of
the Waves, Capt. Dorothy C. Strat-
ton, of the Spars, and Col. Ruth Che-
ney Streeter, of the Marines-have
come into the limelight recently in
what could be called the "greatest
show on earth," and are leading
more than 222,000 young Americans
of the distaff side in roles which are
vital to the winning of the war.
Col. Blanchfield, with her 40,000
modern Florence Nightingales, has
been in the service longest. She join-
ed the Army Nurse Corps in 1917,
served in France, and took over the
job of superintendent in June, 1943.
The small, sandy-haired leader, be-
sides being good in her own field, can
also take her car apart and make her
own clothing.
Head of the Navy Nurse Corps,
Capt. Dauser has been seeing the
world since she joined the Navy
Service shortly after our entrance
into World War I. Eight thousand
nurses and medical corpsmen, serv-
ing on land and sea are under her
supervision, and she is the first
American woman entitled to wear
four gold stripes on the sleeve of
her uniform.
The 77,000 Wacs who are doing
155 important Army jobs have as
their head Col. Hobby. This slight,
trim, photogenic officer was once a
"dollar-a-year-man" in Washington,
and it was there that she helped map
plans for the woman's army of

g Ladies Star
on Earth'

which she became director in May,
1942.
Capt. McAfee rates a salute as
she marches by with 70,000 Waves
in Navy blue. Once called "Miss
Mac" by the students at Vassar col-
lege of which she was president,
she was chose for her post after
18 months of research for a woman
who "combined intellectual hon-
esty, leadership, tolerance, sympa-
thy, understanding of youth, vis-
ion, and a sense of humor."
The name Spar, was devised from
the Coast Guard motto and its mean-
ing-Semper Paratus, Always Ready
-by Capt. Stratton, who had risen
to the rank of lieutenant-commanded,
in the Waves, when she was made
director of the Coast Guard Women's
Reserve. This small attractive woman
with a bright smile, who was once
dean of women at Purdue Univer-
sity, now commands more than 8,000
Spars.
The rosy-cheeked commander of
19,000 women Marines, sturdy Col.
Streeter, was active in civic affairs,
and an accomplished airplane pilot
with a commercial pilot's certificate
when she accepted her post. She has
two boys in the Navy, one in the
Army, and a daughter in school.
The parade of new stars is over,
and we find there is not one Ama-
zon among them-unless that qual-
ity is found in spirit.
Members of the Women's War
Council will meet at 5 p. m. tomor-
row in the Council Room in the
League, Marge Hall, president, an-
nounced today. All War Council
members all expect to be present.

tee of Soph Project will meet at
4:15 Tuesday in the League, ac-
cording to Virginia Councell, gen-
eral chairman.
