Woman's Face, Ah, Er---Figure
Are Own Business, Says Navy

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK, Aug. 14.-What a
woman does with her face and her-
ah, er-figure is her own business,
the Navy maintains, and Lt. Com-
mander Mildred H. McAfee, com-
FDR L duds
Atl antic Pact
As War Goal
WASHINGTON, Aug. 14.-(A)-
President Roosevelt hailed the At-
lantic Charter, on its first annivers-
ary today, as the basis of a just and
happy post-war world.
It was one year ago today that he
and Prime Minister Winston Chur-
chill, meeting on a warship in the
north Atlantic, signed that historic
document. It was a joint expression
of the principles for which Britain
was fighting and on which the
United States, then a non-belliger-
ent, was helping that nation.
Its eight bases for a post-war set-
tlement were:
No territorial gains.
No territorial changes except as
approved by the people affected.
Respect for the rights of all people
to choose their own forms of govern-
Equal access by all nations to
world trade and raw materials.
Full international economic collab-
The establishment of a peace as-
suring the safety of all nations, and
their freedom from want and fear.
Freedom of the seas.
Abandonment of the use of force
by the nations, and the disarmament
of those threatening aggression.
Reaffirming this declaration, Mr.
Roosevelt said today in a message to
"We shall stand shoulder to shoul-
der in seeking to nourish the ideals
for which we fight. It is a worthwhile
battle. It will be so recognized
through all the ages, even amid the
unfortunate peoples who follow false
gods today.
"We reaffirm our principles. They
will bring us to a happier world."

Photos On Display
In AlumniBuilding
A display of photographs of for-
mer Michigan men now in the armed
forces can be seen at any time of
the day in Altmni Memorial Hall,
T. H. Tapping, alumni secretary, has
The pictures are on the bulletin,
board in the basement hall leading
to the editorial room of the Michi-
gan Alumnus.
The men represent nearly every
branch of service, and some have
high positions as officers. Many are
probably known to students now at-
tending the University, said Tap-

mander of the WAVES, Women's Na-
val Reserve unit, confirms it.
The Navy wants no mutiny in its
feminine ranks and through Com-
mander McAfee states there will be
no rules nor regulations about make-
up and unmentionables.
"We have no rules about makeup,
although we don't want the women
to be conspicuous," Commander Mc-
Afee said in an interview today.
"They are being carefully selected,
and we will rely on their good judg-
ment. Except for the visible uni-
form, there is no regulation as to
what may be worn."\
The commander herself was not
in uniform today. The WAVES' uni-
form, she said, was being designed by
Mainbocher, New York couturier.
"It takes a lot of time to get uni-
forms approved and they are just
not ready yet," she said. "However,
it will be a Navy blue tailored suit.
Officers and enlisted women's uni-
forms will be about the same except
for the hat, buttons and insignia.
Getting stockings of a uniform shade
is one of the difficulties that is hold-
ing up the uniforms. We don't even
know yet what material the stockings
will be, but probably they will be
The hat, she said, would have in-
ter'changeable blue and white tops
and a "havelock," a cover to protect
the hat in rainy weather.

DETROIT, Aug. 14.-(AP)-Mayor
Edward J. Jeffries recommended to
Army authorities today that Detroit
discontinue blackouts until war
plants are ready to coordinate their
air-raid protective efforts.
Plants would be safer with all of
Detroit's lights blazing than as tar-
gets singled out in a sea of darkness,
the mayor said in a letter to Maj.-
Gen. George Grunert, head of the
sixth service command in Chicago
who ordered last Wednesday night's
War plants, obeying Army orders,
did not participate in the blackout
and later an Army officer criticized,
Detroit's efforts:
"It seems ridiculous for us to con-
tinue blackouts for civilian practice,
with the Army and Navy doing noth-
ing to indicate that industries en-
gaged in war work could black out
in event of an emergency," Jeffries
"We are now convinced that our
residences, stores, street and traffic
lights can and will be extinguished
in such an emergency,
"It is childish for e to black out
my home that nobody could bomb
except by accident and in the black-
out process identify, in a more effec-
tive way than I can describe, the war
factories-the real, rich prize for

Dimout Blues
14.-(Al)-Driving off in a dim-out,
Mrs. Elizabeth Koch discovered she
had lost her purse containing $100.
She parked her nearly new car and
groped ,in the darkened street for
the handbag.
But she forgot to set the brakes.
The car began rolling, knocked her
down and then plunged over a 25-
foot embankment, landing upside
down-with two shredded tires.
There was a happy ending, though.
A stranger found the purse and re-
turned it.

Pneumonia Ends
Gallant Struggle
Of Fisherwoman
JACKSONVILLE, N. C., Aug. 14.-
W/)-Mrs. C. F. Thompson hardy 32-
year-old fisherwoman, died in the
Marine Base Hospital at New River
today, losing a gallant 10-day strug-
gle for life which began when she
stoically amputated her own foot
with a saw-edged fishing knife.
Pneumonia was the cause of death.
It developed Tuesday night, just
when Mrs. Thompson appeared to
be showing improvement. She was
placed in an oxygen tent yesterday
but her condition became more criti-
cal hourly.
Mrs. Thompson's ankle was badly
mangled when her slacks were caught
in the drive shaft of a motorboat in
which she had gone fishing with a
16-year-old boy hired to operate the
boat. Unable to free her foot, she
took the six-inch fishing knife and
calmly cut it off.
