obtain healthful outdoor exercise."

LETTERS TO EDITOR-
Lt. Bethell Praises Ann Arbor
WAC Recruiting Efforts
BECAUSE of a cancellation in orders I regret that I must discontinue my
stay in Ann Arbor before the scheduled closing date of our WAC recruit-
ing drive. I wish to express my deep appreciation to the League, the Office
of Civilian Defense, the University, the press and in general to all Ann Arbor
residents for their splendid cooperation with us.
YOU SHOULD BE AS PROUD as I am, that your city and mine
now leads by a 50Cc margin all other Michigan cities in both the
number of applicants and the number of acceptances in the corps.
Because the WAC is playing a most active p~art toward ultimate
victory, your enthusiastn' and interest in the corps is merely one
other indication of your willingness and imnortance in the total
I REGRET that I, personally, can no longer be available to give information
to all who are interested. However, information may be obtained on
Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at the Armory and on all other days at
the Federal Building in Detroit. I wish to extend hy sincere hope that all
who have joined and vwill join our ranks from Ann Arbor will find the hap-
piness and satisfaction that the WAC has given me.
