Servicemen Ask
For More Coeds
At USO Dances
"More women, more coeds," the
majority of servicemen who turned
in written suggestions Friday and
Saturday nights as to how the
League USO functions could be im-
proved, state emphatically.
Although the plea for coeds was
predominant, there was a deluge of
other suggestions, all pointing to the
need for a USO with greater recrea-
tiUnal facilities, where men without
prtners at the moment or men who
do not dance would have a place to
go. "A ping-pong table would be
swell," and "Lots more records," were
two of the comments. Another sol-
dier asked, "What about a billiard
Several soldiers requested a post
exchange. "Could you persuade the
merchants around town to permit a
PX? We need one badly," read one
Many of the suggestions read
"More USO," and "USO is great but
there isn't enough of it." On ten
slips the servicemen's hearty ap-
proval of the whole USO idea and a
demand for greater facilities was re-
corded by the simple statement,
