Mortar Board
Will Sponsor
Campus Affair
'Pay-off Dance' Will Be Held
March 9 in League Ballroom;
fouse Presidents Allot Tickets

Rushing Aid
To Be Given
By PanheIInic

An informal "Pay-off Dance" to be
held from 9 p.m. midnight, Saturday,
March 9, in the League Ballroom, will
be a revived campus tradition spon-
sored by Mortar Board.
All wiomen are urged to bring a
date, and can secure tickets, priced at
$1.50 from their house presidents.
The band which will play for the af-
fair will be announced later.
"Since this is one of the few wom-
en-bid dances it is an opportunity to
repay your dates," said Doris Heidgen,
general chairman for the affair.
For ten or fifteen years before the
war, Mortar Board, women's honor
society, sponsored a "Pay-off Dance,"
the last one of which was held in Feb-
ruary of 1942.
Members of the committees work-
ing on the dance are: programs, Mar-
ion Johnson and Beverly Solorow;
tickets, Jane Archer and Barbara Os-
borne; finance, Jean Gaffney; pa-
trons, Ruthann Bales.
Betty Vaughn and Jane Strauss are
in charge of decorations, and Mar-
garet Farmers Joyce Seigan and Ann
Schutz are handling publicity.
Presidents of dormitories, auxiliary
dorms and league houses are asked to
pick up tickets for the Mortar Board
"Pay-Off Dance" from 3 p.m. to 5
p.m. today and tomorrow in the As-
sembly-Panhellenic Office on the sec-
ond floor of the League.
Cards Are Read
For Distr ibution
By Assembly
Assembly membership cards may be
obtained from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. today
through Thursday in the Assembly
Office on the second floor of the
League, according to Helen Alpert,
Ass-embly president.
The cards are to provide tangible
evidence of association with Assembly
and will enable the Board to deter-
mine the number of active members
of the Organization. Membership
cards will also be a requisite for par-
ticipation in Assembly functions and
events.
Among the events to be sponsored
next semester by Assembly are the
League House Dances, at which coeds
from different zones will act as host-
esses, and Assembly afternoon teas.

TEARFUL TRAVELER-Kennith Eldridge, Jr., 1, gets a lift from
Porter K. L. Lucas as the child and his mother, a war bride, arrive in
Chicago from England.
By LOIS KELSO
THE VALENTINE MANUFACTURERS of America are to be commended.
With the originality, resourcefulness, verve, and determination to Give
the Customers What they Want, peculiar to American business men, they
turn out a line of missives which say everything you could imagine, and
much you couldn't.
There are the family Valentines, designed to strengthen ties in that
grand old American institution, the home. These are provided for mother,,
father, brother, sister, grandmother, granddaughter, brother and his wife,
sister and her husband, "my old mother," the mother of one very dear to
me," and "one who is like a mother to me" (I'm going to send that one to
Judiciary Council). There are, oddly enough, none for the "other father.,"
Next year I confidently expect to see one for "my husband's ex-wife,"
T THE TOP OF THE PRICE RANGE are Valentines several feet square,
often padded and scented. These seem to be aimed at those lovers just too
cheap to send flowers, or those with a grudge against the Post Office.
Also designed for the economical are Birthday Valentines and Valentines
for one who is ill. I wonder when it is going to occur to the trade that some
people have wedding anniversaries on February 14. That looks like a natural
from here.
A RECENT DEVELOPMENT, and one which strikes me as essentially sig-
nificant of our worldly American culture, is the Cautious Valentine,,
which carefully omits all references to Love, undying or otherwise. They
contain chaste references to warm affection and fond memories, but could'
not possibly involve the sender in a breach of promise suit.
My favorite of these is one which begins warningly-"Nothing senti-
mental! Just a friendly thought."
This is the sort of thing which makes a girl lock herself in her room

Those coeds who have any questions
oncerning rushing or sororities may
o to the Panhellenic Office on the
^cond fHoor of the League in order to
gave their queries answered.
Open from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. every
day until tho end of the semester,
she Office will answer those ques-
ions about sororities which were for-
meriy answered by the Office of the
Doan of Women.
Nancy. Jefford, rushing secretary of
=anhellenic, also requested that those
vcmn planning to sign up for rush-
ing bring their report cards to the
Office when they sign up for this ac-
ivity. Registration for rushing will
take place during the first week of the
second semcster. Actual rushing func-
:ions will begin at the end of the first
week.
Bdminton ClubI
Winner cf this season's WAA Bad-
mm ;n Club ingles ' tournament is
tlMarge Davy, with Gloria Miller as
Ixinner-up-.
.A tournament open to all women
will begin next semester, announced
M~ary Perrone, chairman. Those inter-
ested mray sign up through Wednes-
ay, February 20 at Barbour Gym.
Three weeks are permitted to pylay
the first round of matches. Sorority
women and rushees are urged to com-
plete their matches during the first
week, due to the conflict of rushing
activities.
sororities Initiate
New Members
Two sororities on campus have re-
cently announced the initiation and
affiliation of new members.
Zeta Tau Alpha is initiating Bar-
bara Luke, Pat Henry, Rosemary Lar-
son, Shirley Weitzel, Sylvia von Mee-
teren,. Marian Cline, Irene Zavalla
and Corinne Calkins.
Alpha Chi Omega has initiated
Joan Sanders, Ann Halliday Alfs,
Catherine Cowan and Pat Clancy.
Having trouble with unventilated
closets? Sachet tablets on closet'
shelves or small bags of sachet powder
en hangers, scent clothes lightly and
help counteract the stuffiness. Try it.

New Jobs Open
For More Air
Stewardesses
According to a recent Associated
Press release, the nation's airlines
will need many more stewardesses in
the next decade to staff domestic and
international passenger planes.
Expansion of service, introduction
of larger planes, and the use of stew-
ardesses for the first time on interna-
tional flights have contributed to the
need for three times as many host-
esses by the end of this year as in
1941.
Expansion Causes Need
When the war began the entire in-
dustry employed 1034 hostesses, ac-
cording to the report, but needs many
mere women due to this service ex-
pansion.
The field is made to order for any-
one who is air minded and has a yen
.to travel. The stewardesses of today
have a better chance to see the world;
than ever before. Some of them may
be based in Paris, Rome, Cairo or Asi-
atic capitals, the report continued.
Marriage Follows
"Cupid is the greatest headache to
those in charge of hostess personnel,"
said a TWA spokesman, and the other
lines agreed. The average stewardess
stays with her job from 18 months to
two and a half years-and then gets
married.
Each line, however, has a different
experience as to whom stewardesses
marry. Some said the greatest num-
ber marry passengers, others have the
bulk of weddings within the organi-
zation, and a third group of stew-
ardesses marries the boy back hcme,
according to report statistics.
Airplanes now are encouraging
women to enter the field since the de-
mand for stewardesses is so great.
However the highest standards are
still strictly observed.
'M' Dames To Meeti
There will be a general meeting of
the Michigan Dames at 8 p.m., today,
in the Rackham Bldg.
The program will include a techni-
color movie, "Michigan on the
March." The film concerns the war-
time campus of the University and
steps toward reconversion.
Sophomore women have spent 529
hours in hospital volunteer work dur-
ing the month of January.
The hours were spent in working in
the offices, children's wards, regular
wards, blood bank, and laboratories.

and shorts in white rayon with melon
trim and a matching fringed stole.
