Ticket Sales
To Commence

Tickets for IFC Ball will go on

A limited number of tickets has
been sent to the president of each
house. Those which are not sold
by April 29, will be returned to
the ticket committee and will be
put on sale in the Administra-
tion Building to independent men.

BESIDES THE tickets returned
from the fraternities, a definite
number of tickets have been set
aside for the independent sales.
The dance will be held from
9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday, May 11,
in the IM Building.'
It will be "Heaven and Hell" for
those who attend the dance, and
"devils and angels" will hover
around the couples.
THE "OTHER WORLD" will set
the mood for the dance, and the
idea will be carried out in the
"Heavenly" and "Hellish" decora-
Fluffy white clouds and angels
will reign in the peaceful realm
of heaven, while on the other
side of the room, the fire and
brimstone of Satan's domain
will make things "hot."
Booths will be set up for the
fraternities, but this year they
will be built by an IFC commit-
tee, rather than by the individual
There will be a separate booth
for independent men.
Harry James, the man with the
horn, will provide the musical
background for the dance.
His band is best-known for its
swing, but it also features the
best in smooth, slow music.

Wars Demand
Role Changes
On Homefront
In every war the loneliness and
frustration of the vast army of{
home-front women present almost
as many problems in morale as do
the armies away from home.
But no longer will women be
left to cope with their anxieties
alone, thanks to the services of;
experts in psychology, sociology,
industry, government, philosophy,
and religion, who have solutions;
to suggest, though they may not
always be easy to apply.
IN PAST ERAS the woman's
role was one of household chores
and passive waiting. This is no
longer true, with so much to be
done on the home front, such as
jobs in war industry and the host
of volunteers needed by the Red
Cross, the Office of Civilian De-
fense and the U.S.O.
The picture ,is not a bright
one; yet it can be made bright-
er, after the initial hurt of the
men's leaving has given way to
sensible analysis and planning.
Wives who manage to adopt a
positive attitude and hang on to
it have found the separation a
chance to become acquainted with
themselves, and to develop inde-
pendence and a richer personality.
* * * .
last war have shown that the wo-
men soldiers of the home army
have a clear-cut campaign all
mapped out for them.
The first campaign objective
isato help in every way possible
and practical to win the war by
strengthening the home front.
Secondly those at home may act
as morale officer to at least one
soldier through letters and gift
Lastly one may keep up a never-
ending campaign of self - im-
provement for width of interests
and warmth of heart and for
greater patience and greater cap-
acity for love.
Opposed to this operation are

of the mind: self-pity, unreason-
