to whether we could have 'a formal
dance," Munson said, "because for-
mals can't be cleaned now and for-
mal dances are supposedly outlawed
for the duration anyhow. However,
a lot of people have said they would
like a summer formal here, so we've
decided to let the campus decide."

of songs written by members of the
The chorus was so successful that
it is now a regular unit in Co. A, and
has expanded its activities to cover
performances at bond rallies, service-

A Chorus is the only soldier's choir
in the country, and that "it contains
some remarkably talented men."
