War Changes Father
Into Hep Jitterbug
Cleveland debutantes have solved
the manpower shortage by having
their fathers gallantly escort them to
a recent South Euclid college prom.
The girls readily admitted they in-
vited their dads because of the cur-
rent lack of eligible young men, but
added hastily that their fathers were
fine dancers and made excellent es-

Of Assembly
Is Announced
Assembly, the organization of
which all independent women resi-
dents on campus are members, has
been re-organized, according to Flor-
ine Wilkins, President of Assembly.
Since over 550 independent women
live in League Houses, it was felt
that a better method of representa-
tion was needed for them. This year
all the League House Presidents will
meet at 5 p. m. each Tuesday. These
meetings will be presided over by
Florine Wilkins. Women living in
the large dormitories will be repre-
sented by their House Presidents at
meetings under the direction of Jane
Richardson, Vice-President of As-
By having separate meetings for
the League House Presidents, it is the
hope of Assembly to make each inde-
pendent girl living in a League House
feel herself an active and wanted
member of her organization. Assem-
bly wants every girl to feel free to
come to them with any suggestions,
problems, or complaints, and she is
assured of having a sympathetic ear
lent in her direction.
To clarify the numerous activities
in which independent women may
participate, Assembly has as one of
its projects the compiling of a week-
ly calender of all events going on on
campus and the distributing of these
calenders to the House Presidents
each week.
Assembly has its office on the sec-
ond floor of the League, the former
Kalamazoo Room, and is open from
3 p. m. until 5 every afternoon.
Navy Women
Turn To Field'

Plan Will Be Effective Nov. 19
An entirely new procedure for't
"Sign-Out" sheets will be put into1
effect beginning Nov. 19, Natalie1
Mattern, president of the Judiciaryt
Council announced recently. '
This year, unlike the past, alll
signing in and out must be done in3
ink. It has been suggested that<
each house place pen and ink nearf
the sign-out post. It is requiredr
that after the specified date all1
sign-out sheets be in ink.
Sign-out sheets must be turned in1
to the Council for each week (a week
being considered as Monday throught
Sunday). These sheets must be
placed in the box marked "Sign-Out
Sheets" in the Undergraduate Of-
fices of the Michigan League before
5 p.m. on Monday.1
A composite sheet, also written in1
ink, must accompany the original
sign-out sheets and be attached firm-
ly. Also attached must be any late
permission slips which have been
signed by the house head.
The house head and the house
president will be held directly re-
sponsible for the accuracy of all
reports turned in. The house presi-
dent shall be responsible for their
delivery to the League. In cases in
which sheets are not properly turned
in to the Council, the responsible
officer shall appear before the Coun-
cil and be subject to social probation.

Freshman and transfer students!
You've said you want to meet people
on campus and herein lies the solu-
tion to all your problems, the USO.
A USO card entitles the Junior
hostess to attend any of the func-
tions sponsored by the club. On
Monday nights all hostesses who
have reached the age of 22 may at-
tend Officer's Night. Tuesday nights
have been entitled "Swing Sing
Nights" and you can sing out in
your basso profundo to your hearts
content. A Mid-Week Dance is held
every Wednesday, while Thursdays
are "Rumpus Nights."
Dancing Class
Comes Friday and comes the Danc-
ing Class, at which time any brave
souls who don't mind having their
toes pulverized by GI dancing shoes,
can come up and help teach the fel-
lows the P's and Q's of dancing. Sat-
urday nights are always the time of
big, gala dances. Sunday winds up
the week with lots of different activi-
ties planned. In the morning abso-

All women interested in becoming
Junior Hostesses may register at the
USO before November 15. Each reg-
istrant should bring two letters of
recommendation from adults in their
home town, preferably including one
from a clergyman.

Hair-Do Keeps
Pace with War
This year, as for the past few years,
the garb of "Miss Coed" is neat, dur-
able, and simple. Every girl knows
her clothes must keep pace with her
speeded up and more serious life.
Hair, in order to keep up with this
new trend in college wardrobes, has
also adopted a few new styles of its
own. High pompadours and intri-
cate hair-do's are out. In their place
has come the smooth new "flat-top"
look. The hair is usually parted in
the center and combed straight back.
It may simply be allowed to fe.ll
straight to the shoulder, or be worn
in a page boy or, for special oc-
casions, in a chignon.
In view of these new hair styles,
new hair accessoriesnarehappearing
in stores and shops everywhere. Ster-
ling silver identifications clips are
the newest thing to hold back ,hose
sometimes contrary locks. Velvet
bands and colorful nets, although
not entirely new this year, are also
seen sharing the lime-light in hair



Enough women to man 12 battle-
ships are now wearing the uniform
of the Navy Women's Reserve, and
one-fourth of these WAVES are in
the aviation branch.
They do every job in aviation
except to fly the planes, and although
they do not pilot planes, they fly in
them. Many women who have been
wearing the Navy blue for less than
a year have more than 50 hops to
their credit.
'Grease Monkeys'
Flying experience is necessary for
each Air WAVE, so that she can
know her job thoroughly. WAVE
aerographers fly with pilots every
morning to make weather observa-
tions and compile complete data as
to weather velocity, ceiling'and loca-
tion of various auxiliary fields.
"Grease Monkeys," the name given
to WAVES who wield the wrenches
and can make a sick plane well, must
know how a plane will act in the air
as well as on the ground. WAVE
radiomen perform the same duties
as their bluejacket brothers and of-
ten work side by side with them at
the wireless sets.
A small and select group of
WAVES recently began a six months'
course in the breeding and raising of
carrier pigeons. Pigeon handlers will
be assigned to Navy lighter-than-air
stations to keep up the communica-
tion lines of Navy blimps, upon com-
pletion of their course.

All records from the opening of
the residence this fall up to and
including Sunday, Nov. 19 must be
handed in by 5 p.m. Monday, Nov.
24. Model sign-out sheets and a
composite sheet may be found
posted in the Undergraduate Offi-
ces of the League for any further
All women students and house
heads are held responsible for the
observance of house rules within
their own houses. Copies of these
rules, which have been revised this
year, are available in the Under-
graduate Offices of the League.
Miss Mattern stated that there are
several good reasons for the change
in procedure and urged that every
woman on campus cooperate.
Control tower operators, dubbed,
"traffic cops of the air," have the
important job of directing landings
and take-offs at Navy airfields, but
in place of the whistles used by
"terra firma" cops, they use radio
and light guns to direct the sky
Aviation Training
Women between the ages of 20 and
36, in good physical condition, citi-
zens of the United States, with at
least two years of high school or
business school, and not having any
dependents under 18, will be accepted
for enlistment in the WAVES, and
can, upon completion of their boot
training, receive further training in
the aviation branch.
The Air WAVES now offers a
splendid opportunity of seeing the
world from the air, and almost every
woman in that branch intends to
continue with aviation after the war.
