Porter's 'Begin the Beguine'
According to the plans recently
announced by Bill Sawyer, orchestra
leader, a variety of entertainment
will be featured at the League dance
to be held from' 9 p.m. to midnight
Saturday, which "promises to make
it a gala evening for the servicemen
and coeds on campus," he added. 1
The All-Soldier Choir of Company
A, comprising 55 members, will be,
the big attraction. The chorus will

ment of Cole Porter's "Begin the Be-
Featuring Herb Eidemiller at the

Among Sawyer's new arrangements

played in response to many requests,

Name" by Jerome Kern from, the
MGM picture "Russia."
Tickets for thedance are now on
sale in the League, Sawyer an-
nounced. "Although the ticket sales
will be limited to 250 couples, there
will be no advance in prices;" he add-
ed. He also said that servicemen will
continue to be admitted at reduced
rates as long as the students support
the dances.

A new Nurses' Aide class will
start on Aug. 23 and willcontinue
during the last eight weeks of the

cently by Mrs. Irene B. Johnson,

Soph Project
Volunteers 596
Hours of Work
The members of Sophomore Proj-
ect, have contributed more than 5 96
hours to the Hspital Volunteer Ser-
vice since the opening of the summer
term, Mavis Kennedy, '46, chairman,'
announced yesterday.
"Many of the coeds will have lig1t-
er programs at the end of the sui-
mer session," Miss Kennedy said
"and we would like all of them to
come out." For those interested in
working the second eight weeks there
will soon be an orientation meeting,
the time to be announced later.
Five coeds have given over twenty
hours of their time to hospital work,
Miss Kennedy added. They are Darcy
Bagger with 291/4 hours; Nancy Gain-
bill with 26 hours; Futh M. Cook
who contributed 22% hours; Lois
Long with 201/4 hours and Nancy
Richter with 20 hours.
One of the new projects started
this summer was to have the volun-
teers work in clinics, and the experi-
ment has proved very "successful;"J
Miss Kennedy added. The volunteers
also aid in medicine, urology, blood
bank, hospital aide, occupational
therapy, gynecology, M.C.A., Galen
Stand and Galen Carts.

The appearance of Shep Fields andz
his "New Music" rchestra at thet
Summer Prom to be held from 8:30t
p.m. to midnight Saturday in theE
Waterman gym will not be his first1
before a group of servicemen.-
Although he's not the one to holdt
back anything from the Army, Fields1
felt that the Navy has not been re-
ceiving its due from the entertainers.'
As a result he has made an effort to1
provide ships' service concerts for the1
crews of naval vessels laying up fort
repairs or supplies while on sea-"
coast tours. The band has gone
aboard battleships, cruisers and into
Navy yard recreation halls.
Of "Rippling Rhythm" Fame
Playing engagements from coast to
coast, Fields has become one of the
top-ranking stars in the music world
His band has been starred in several
movie shorts and has been featured
on many radio networks. Meredith
Blake and Ted Perry on the vocals
offer an added attraction.
Shep Fields who was famous for his
"rippling rhythm," tossed it away at
the peak of its popularity to evolve
his "new music." Fields' sensational
new style bridges the gap between
sweet and swing without being a hy-
Tickets Now on Sale1
The new combination consists of
Main at Liber

nine saxophones and woodwinds with
the usual rhythm section, piano, gui-
tar, drums, and bass.' The complete
elimination of trumpets and trom-
bones, regarded by rhany as a daring
innovation, has caused the orchestra
to be' billed as- "the only band of its
kind in the world."
Tickets for the dance, which will
be informal, are now on sale in the
Union, the League, and in State
bookstores, Rupert Straub, ticket
chairman said. "Anyone who wants
to come is invited," Straub added.

Demand Dates
Acquaintance Bureau To Open
Today in Response to Requests
Swamped under the pressure of
servicemen demanding dates, the Ac-
quaintance Bureau, headed by Mary
June. Ilastreiter, '44, opened its doors
this summer to accommodate lonely
students whose friends are in the
Army, Navy, WAC, WAVES or what
have you.
The bureau will be open from 1:30
p.m. to 2:30 p.m. today in response
to requests and from 1:30 to 5:45
p.m. tomorrow and Tuesday. Coke
dates will be arranged for all appli-
cants on the basis of height, religious
preference, personality and individ-
ual specifications.
"Any servicemen who would like
a date to the Summer Prom can reg-
ister with us, and the committee will
do its best to arrange a coke date in
plenty of time," Miss Hastreiter said.
Coke. dates are arranged first so that
"no one will have to spend an eve-
ning with someone he or she does not
care for." she added.
Miss Hastreiter stated that house-
mothers of the women's dormitories
and sororities are still reporting that
they have many calls from lonesome
soldiers and sailors who are anxious
to meet some Michigan coeds. "If the
men would only sign up at the bu-
reau, we could get them lots of dates,
because so far the girls have cooper-
ated beautifully," she added.
The bureau is prepared to meet
almost any tastes. The coeds who
have registered are . interested in
everything from dancing to outdoor
sports. They hail from Maine to Cali-
fornia and there are blondes, brun-
