the dancing class project should at-
tend this meeting. JGP chairman
Ann Lippincott especially urged all
second-semester freshmen and those

from this project because of the op-
portunity it offers them to meet
other students," Miss Lippincott
The purpose of this year's peace-
time Junior Girls Project is to broad-
en social opportunities for the cam-
pus, and help to reconvert activities

Tickets for VO Dance on Sale
At League, Union, Diagonal;
Ex-Navy Man To Lead Band
The music o- Ray Anthony, an ex-
Navy man, will be particularly ap-
propriate to the Veterans Organiza-
tion-sponsored Feather Merchants
Ball, which is to be held from 9 p.m.
to 1 a.m. Friday, March 29 at the In-
tramural Building.
Anthony's 19-piece civilian orches-
tra is currently playing at a St. Louis
hotel. Dee Keating, who is at her
best on smooth, low tunes, is starred
as the vocalist with Anthony's band.
In 1942 Anthony joined the Navy
and appeared on several broadcasts
at Great Lakes. He later toured the
Pacific for 18 months and played for
armed forces audiences at the Royal
Hawaiian Hotel in Honolulu.
His band was featured on armed
forces radio broadcasts, Command
Performance, G.L Journal, and Yank
Bandstand programs, and beamed to
armed forces personnel all over the
world. By virtue of its popularity as
the "Hottest Band in the Pacific," it
was awarded an "oscar" by the G.I.'s.
Ray Anthony was to the Pacific
G.I.'s what Johnny Desmond, an-
other Glen Miller protege, was to
servicemen in the European theater.
Roth were relatively unknown until
they entered the service, and each
rose to fame through the acclaim of
the critical armed forces audiences.
Tickets for the Feather Merchants
Ball may 1e purchased at the Union,
League, and on the diagonal. They
will continue to be sold only until the
quota is reached.

theme, but will be kept secret as a

Total $2,300
The Michigan Union Student Book
Exchange has finished compiling the
data on the number of books sold
and the amount of money which was
taken in, and in the light of these
figures has been pronounced a suc-
cessful venture by its managers, John
Houston and Nancy Tressel.
As a non-profit organization, its
main purpose was to offer students
books at reasonable prices to the
buyer, and a liberal return to the
seller. Texts were collected the last
week of the fall semester, and sold
througout the first week of this se-
A total of 3228 books was collect-
ed from various league houses,
dormitories, and sorority houses,
- from over 750 persons. Forty volun-
teer assistants working a total of
315 hours assisted the Exchange in
the classification, selling, and
checking of these texts and sup-
plies. Lois Kelso and Mary Hag-
gerstrom contributed the greatest
number of hours, according to Miss
About $2300 in checks have been
sent to those students whose books
were sold through the Exchange.
Books which were not sold were pre-
dominately those which are for
courses offered during the fall sem-
Many students left their unsold
books with the Exchange to be
sold next fall. Manager Houston
stated that the exchange has a
good supply of first-semester books
for next fall.
Assisting managers Houston and
Miss Tressel were Nancy Land and
Pat Williams, junior personnel as-
"The chairmen would like to thank
the volunteers and students for their
invaluable aid and cooperation in
helping to make MUSBE the su..c-
cess it was," Miss Tressel stated.
