Eight Weeks
Nancy Upson Urges Women
To Join Volunteer Hostesses
For Rest of Summer Term
At the recent meeting of the Uni-
versity USO Volunteers, plans were
made for the remaining eight weeks
of the summer term.
According to Nancy Upson, '44,
chairman of the meeting, the dance
last-week was "really a success. There
were plenty of girls, the dance was
well organized, and everyone seemed
to have a good time." She expressed
the hope that all of the coeds remain-
ing on campus for the second eight
.weeks would sign up in the Under-
graduate Office of the League.
"We're here to show the service-
men a good time, not to find a man
that will show us a good time," she
stated. As a result the girls should
do their part, asking the men to
dance and cutting in. With both the
men and women cutting in everyone
will have a better time and will meet
more people.
Acting upon the demand for "more
women!" that was encountered fre-
quently in the suggestion box, the
committee is planning a sign-up
drive to be conducted in all of the'
dormitories, and sororities. A num-
ber of "Paul Jones" and other mixer
dances will be held at the beginning
of the USO affairs to enable people
to get acquainted.
The USO dances willbe held every
Friday and Saturday night that there
isn't some other big campus function.
Reporting on previous attendance,
Miss Upson stated that most of the
servicemen who attend on Friday are
sailors and marines, while most of
the soldiers come on Saturday.

Contrary to a previous announce-

Monday and Tuesday, Aug. 23 and 24.

such as name, age, height, religious
preference and interests. On the basis
of these plus a personal evaluation by
the registrar, coke dates are arranged
for all applicants.
"After the bureau arranges the
coke date, the students and service-
men are on their own," Miss HastrPi-
ter stated. The man can ask the
woman out if he wishes or he may let
the bureau know and they will send
him another date. The girl may re-
fuse the date and receive another one
