THE DANCE is an annual event
which is presented by the foresters
in horor of Paul Bunyan, the hero
of all woodsmen.
The stories of Paul and his
big blue ox, Babe, have been
told for many years around the
logging campfires and have be-
come a part of the American
tradition.
He was a huge man, standing
43 axe handles high. His amazing
feats of strength were responsi-
ble for forming Pikes Peak, the
Great Lakes and many other sights
of scenic beauty.

Winners To Compete
In National Tourney;
Goren To Be Present
Union bridge tournament will
enter its second round of elimina-
tions at the weekly bridge contest
to be held at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday
in the Union Ballroom.
The final winners to be chosen
after the third round will repre-
sent the University at the Ameri-
can Contract Bridge League's na-
tional tournament during the first
week in December at Detroit.
Union officials stress the fact
that it is not too late for interest-
ed students to enter the tourney.
Late permission will be granted
to women on request to their
housemothers.
Charles Goren, nationally fa-
mous bridge expert will be on hand
at the Detroit competition. Mr.
Goren has devised his own theor-
ies on the art of playing bridge
and has published several books
on the game.
The American Contract Bridge
League's national tournament is
held twice yearly in cities through-
out the country. This year's tour-
ney marks the first time in re-
cent years that the contest has
been held in Detroit.
There will be a special section
devoted to college competition at
the national tourney where stu-
dents from all over the United
States will compete against one
another for honors.
In 1949 a team of students rep-
resenting the University won the
Detroit Intercollegiate tourna-
ment. Also in 1948 and 1949 teams
won trophies in the Central
States' Intercollegiate Team-of-
four in Chicago.

A SOfficer
By ROBERTA MAC GREGOR
"Life in the Navy is wonderful,"
Yvonne Fossenkemper, an ensign
in the United States Navy, said
during a leave which she spent on
the Universty campus.
The former student was gradu-
ated from the literary college of
the University in Feb. 1950, and
last year she served as the assist-
ant director at Stockwell Hall.
* * *i
SHE APPLIED for a commis-
sion in the Navy with 600 other
college graduate women. This
number was narrowed down to 300
who were interviewed in Wash-
ington, and Miss Fossenkemper
and 29 others were selected from
the total group to receive commis-
sions,
On June 26, they began the
four months' intensive training
program given to ensigns at the
General Lines School in New-
port, R.I. According to Ensign
Fossenkemper, this training is
comparable to that given male
officers at Annapolis and in the
NROTC.
She was graduated the highest
in her class from the training
course, which included such sub-
jects as Naval Communication and
Naval Law. She also received the
highest grades of any officer trai-
nee in the General Lines School in
the past six years.
FOLLOWING A LEAVE after
graduation from the course, En-
sign Fossenkemper will report
back to the Naval Communications
Department in New York City
where she expects to do cryptogra-
phic work.
Since there are no Naval
quarters in New York, the Navy

YVONNE FOSSENKEMPER

supplies officers living in the
city with a rental allowance.
Miss Fossenkemper will live in
a private apartment with five
other women officers.
The women are required to wear
uniforms only when on duty, and
Ensign Fossenkemper expects to
lead a nearly civilian life.
Officers generally enlist for a
three year term, but during the
present crisis, the enlistees are

"frozen," meaning that the enlist
ment automatically lasts until the
state of emergency is over.
Campus women interested in ob-
taining further information on
careers in the armed forces may
attend an open meeting of the In-
formational Conference to be held
from 3 to 5 p.m. Friday in the
Rackham Amphitheatre.

A new first lady will be acting
as hostess at the first of Hatcher
teas to be held Wednesday, Dec. 5,
from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.
Following the tradition set by
the Ruthvens in bygone years,
President and Mrs. Hatcher will
open their home for student teas.
MRS. HATCHER has issued the
invitation to all to feel free to
wander about the house at will.
No conducted groups will be taken
through this year.
This first tea is in honor of
the senior class and is being
held mainly for seniors. The
senior board and class picked
the pourers from faculty and
wives of faculty members. In
this way the members as a
whole hope to express their gra-
titude to those who have been
close to and have helped the
class the most.j
The names of the pourers will
be announced later.
* * *
USUALLY, AT each tea, there
is a house from one men's resi-
dence hall, a house from one wo-
men's residence hall and a league
house honored.
Also, with the above are hon-
ored a sorority, a fraternity and
the international center.
The first tea will be honoring
only the senior class, but the
regular tradition will be started
again at the following one.
.in Ann Arbor

Hostesses for the tea will be
from the League Social Commit-
tee. Mary Watt, chairman of the
committee is in charge of the
teas.
As her assistants Miss Watt has
Jean Beeman, Ruth Oberg, Marlyn
Carter and Kay Landis.
Blood Wanted
ByRed Cross
Today and tomorrow the Amer-
ican Red Cross will be taking
blood from student donors at
North Hall from 3 to 5 p.m.
All students are being urged to
answer the nation wide call for
the desperately needed blood.
In answer to the question of
women students becoming donors,
Dr. Margaret Bell M.D., Professor
of Hygiene and Physical Educa-
tion and phisician in the Health
Service said, "No physical harm
can result from the normal wo-
man's giving blood, and I sincerely
hope that our women will do-
nate."
Students should consider them-
selves in A-1 condition, and should
not, except in case of emergency,
donate blood more than twice a
year.
The minimum amount of hemo-
globin that should be in the blood
was set at 13.0 grams per 100 cc.
For women the normal amount of
hemoglobin is from 12.2 grams to
15 grams. The Red Cross stand-
ard is set at about 12.5.
Taking iron tablets after donat-
ing is highly recommended in or-
der to build up the blood as soon
as possible. Iron tablets may be
obtained at the Health Service.
It is hoped that a large number
of women students will be among
those turning out to help supply
the life-saving blood so urgently
needed by the fighting men in
Korea.
