League Presents Poor Man's
Prom' As Dance Theme Today

While those plutocrats possessed of
$2.75 are having a whirl at Summer
Prom down at the Sports Building
this evening the rest of the campus
can also step out merrily from 9 to
midnight at the League's presenta-
tion of the Poor Man's Prom, a gala
affair especially designed to console
the hearts and go gently on the pock-
etbooks of all the stay-at-homes.
Biggest feature of Poor Man's
Prom for the war-conscious, (and
who isn't nowadays?) is the fact that
just as in the case of Summer Prom
all proceeds will go to the United
China Relief, the Russian War Re-
lief and the Bomber Scholarship
Fund. Though the contribution will
include all the receipts from the

dance, there will be no increase in the
admission price from the usual for
League weekend dances.
Comfortable informal dates need
not hesitate to attend this democra-
tic all-campus affair.
Doc Sprachlin will lead Gordon
Hardy's Orchestra, the Harmony
Quartet will sing and the Dixieland
Band group will jive, all to make mu-
sic for the Poor Man's Prom. Hos-
tesses (you can tell them by their
hair-ribbons) will be on hand to ex-
tend the League's nospitality.
The League wishes to announce at
this time through the social commit-
tee that the program of Friday and
Saturday evening dances will be con-
tinued right through the summer se-

New War Journey
WASHINGTON, Aug. 20.-()-
Wendell L. Willkie, the man who op-
posed President Roosevelt in the 1940
Presidential election, tonight made
plans for his second wartime journey
to the fighting fronts on a personal
mission for the President.
Although Willkie stressed the fact
that his projected trip to Russia and

the Near East was his own idea, he
came out of a conference with the
President with the statement that he
would "perform certain services for
the government" while abroad.

"The Story of the Allenel's Food"

First gathered by the Indians, scallops have remained
since those early days as one of our most popular sea-
foods. A member of the oyster family, they are found
in the shoal waters of the bays on the Atlantic coast
or on the flats of Long Island Sound.
The main muscle of this fish, cut into cubes and fried
in deep fat to a crisp, golden brown, makes one of our
most delicious and tempting seafood dishes. Try them
