There need be no regard for the
scarcity of women on campus for
the weekend of Aug. 21, for Mrs.
Beryl Bacher, acting dean of women,
has promised that all women brought
to Ann Arbor for the Summer Prom
will be provided with the best avail-
able in rooms.
The rooms that the University is
offering for out-of-town women in-
clude the sororities and dormitories
used by women students attending
the eight-weeks session who will have
left town by that time. They will be
rented at extremely reasonable rates
for both Friday and Saturday nights.
House Parties Not Approved
Though house parties were not ap-
proved by the Student Affairs Com-
mittee, there is a chance to have a
real weekend party on the University.
Applications for these rooms may be
made by calling the Dean of Women's
office or calling there in person.
Ticket sales for Summer Prom will
start Wednesday and extend indef-
initely, Herb Heavenrich, ticket com-
mitteeman, announced yesterday.
An organized system of ticket dis-
tribution has been arranged by the
committee in charge. Several com-
mitteemen will be responsible for can-
vassing all fraternities, sororities,
dormitories, co-ops and rooming
1.

houses beginning Wednesday. There
will be tickets on sale on the Diag-
onal daily with one campus organi-
zation in charge of conducting the
sale each day. Tickets, available to
students and townspeople alike, may
also be purchased at several campus
stores or at the Union and League.
Only Big Affair
Summer Prom, the all-campus-all-
city dance, will be held from 9 p.m.
to midnight, Aug. 21, in the Sports
Building. The only big affair of the
summer season, proceeds of the dance
will go to Russian War Relief, The
Bomber Scholarship and United
China Relief. Hal McIntyre and his
band, coming directly from a week's
engagement at Eastwood Symphony
Gardens in Detroit, will be on the
bandstand. The dance will be formal
or semi-formal and open to everyone.
Replace The Car?
CHICAGO, Aug. 1-(IP)-Sign of
the Times:

ported today that while license totals
for motorcycles, passenger cars and
trucks were showing a decline, li-
censes for one-horse vehicles in the
first seven months of this year
amounted to 1,113 compared with
1,097 for all of 1941.

HAMBURGERS- Big, juicy, ten-
der; choice meat from our own butcher
shop. Served with crisp potato chips and
dill pickle. Help yourself to the relish.
12c
PECAN ROLLS - loaded with
pecans and rich with caramel topping.
Delicious when toasted, too. From the

ing.
The medium used by Prof. Shu-Chi
is water-color and the paintings are
in scroll form, true to the traditional
Chinese manner. The colors strike a
contemporary note in that they are
fresh and rather high in key; birds,
flowers and landscapes being used for
subject matter.
Prof. Shu-Chi will be in Ann Arbor
for the exhibition and will spend
some time in the galleries giving dem-'
ionstrations of his painting, in which
he is said to have developed "a special
technique with two-color brushes,
which enables him to paint with phe-
nomenal speed."
The showing here is being arranged
by Dr. B. A. Liu, visiting instructor in
the School of Education this summer
and an associate of the China Insti-
tute of America, which has charge of
Chinese students in this country.
The exhibit has been shown in New
York and Chicago as a benefit for
United China Relief. There will be
Chinese students in the galleries,
which will be open from 2 p.m. to 5
p.m. and 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., to assist in
the presentation of the exhibition.
War Geography:
Stalingrad
*WHY IS IT
IMPORTANT?
By powerful but horribly costly
steps a gigantic wedge of Nazi motor-
ized strength supported by infantry
and Stuka dive-bombers has ham-
mered its way closer and closer to the
Volga river city of Stalingrad.
Stalingrad is the last remaining
Soviet steel center left in European
Russia and an important head for
the rail lines which carry Caucasus
oil to the embattled north. As such,
its defense would deserve a major ef-
fort by the Red Army even if it had
no strategic military importance.
As the situation stands, the Ger-
mans seek to cut the northern sup-
ply lines of the Soviet Causasus ar-
mies as well as northern Russia's life-
line of oil by stretching a steel band
from Rostov on the Black Sea to the
shores of the Caspian. So long as
Red soldiers remain in Stalingrad
this undertaking can never be as-
sured of success.
Since to the Russians Stalingrad's
fall would mean isolation of the Cau-
casus army and loss of the region
from which 47 per cent of Soviet oil
normally comes, they may be expect
ed to defend the city to the death if
necessary. Thus the impending bat-
tle for Stalingrad promises to be one
the bloodiest and most decisive
struggles of an extremely sanguinary
and important campaign.
