Bureau Offers
Servicemen Aid,
No More Lonesome
Friday, Saturday Nights
For Seekers of Dates
Offering a solution for lonesome
Friday and Saturday nights, an ac-
quaintance bureau will be set up in
the League sometime this week for
the benefit of servicemen and Uni-
versity students who have been look-
ing for their ideal.date.
Under the sponsorship of the
Bomber Scholarship Fund, the Bu-
reau will establish a file containing
the vital statistics of all interested
applicants. Any serviceman, Uni-
versity male student and any girl
may register with the Bureau, Mary
June Hastreiter, '44, Bomber Fund
chairman, said.
"We plan to take down names, age
and height, and also the applicant's
major interests, so that we can ar-
range afternoon coke dates on the
basis of mutual interests," Miss Has-
treiter added. "After the coke date,
the matter is out of our hands. If
the man wants to ask the woman
for a date, it's up to him. If he
doesn't, he can try again."
Planned along the general lines
of the successful League -Acquain-
tance Bureau of two years ago, the
Bureau will attempt to facilitate the
process of getting acquainted for
the nunmerous servicemen who want
to know some University coeds, but
who haven't found the "right ap-
proach" yet.
"We hope the women won't be
backward about registering," Miss
Hastreiter said. "After all, it is for
a worthy cause and is a good way
to get to know the soldiers and Navy
Charging a twenty-five cent fee
for registration, the Bureau will
otherwise offer its services free. The
money collected will be turned over
to the Bomber Scholarship Fund for
the eventual rehabilitation of war
veterans returning to school. Fur-
ther plans and the definite opening
date for the Bureau will be an-
nounced early in the week, Miss Has-
treiter said.
More Men Leaye
To Be Reprocessed
More than 36 students in the Med-
ical and Dental Corps left Ann Arbor
for Fort Wayne today to be re-
This group, which received its or-
ders later than the other students
in the corps who have already been
reprocessed, left over the holiday
weekend in order to lose as little time
as possible from classes.

FORT SILL, Okla., July 3,-(P)
--The Army broke one of its rules

Judge Advocate Generals School
"Beefing," that time-honored and
cherished custom of the service,
sometimes known by a less polite
term, starts early in the morning at
the JAG School. With the first ex-
asperated "damn that bugle" it con-
tinues on through the soapy showers,
growing in intensity until it reaches
a crescendo in the few shuffling mo-
ments before "Fall in!"
But unlike the drab profanity of
the infantry or the bombastic oath
of the artillery, the JAG boys lend
a unique legalistic flavor to their
gripes that make them utterances
worthy of note.
Daily, except Sunctay, the early
morning Michigan air resounds to
Blackstonian con demnations "I
didn't know you had to button all
the buttons. That new rule is ex
post facto as hell" . . . "that extra
skin- unconstitutional, inequitable,
unconscionable" . . . "and to think
we have the nerve to accuse the Axis
of regimentation!"
Captain (Judge) Lent shakes his
head in utter helplessness, "if two

surprise inspections in one day
don't amount to double jeopardy!
I'm going to burn my law books!"
From the third platoon Major
John W. (Man's man) Cook
sounds off: "It was a case of pure
fraud and deception, my room was
a model of perfection and that so-
and-so inspecting officer had to
go and open the closet door! I'm
going to take it up with the lieu-
tenant-governor of Texas"
Lt. (3.0) George Butler in the sec-
ond squad strikes a Napoleonic pose
and issues his daily ultimatum:

Marines Have
First Liberty
Nearly all of the 1317 naval blue-
jackets, cadets and Marines sta-
tioned in West Quadrangle left the
"ship" yesterday for their first week-
end of liberty.
In accordance with naval liberty
regulations for the local V-12 unit,
those traveling outside of a 40-mile
radius of Ann Arbor and men in the
Navy prior to their stationing here
were required to receive "liberty
NROTC cadets being already in
uniform were required also to re-
ceive passes even though their trav-
cling was confined to the Ann Arbor
Non-uniformed V-12 men, not re-
quired to sign out, were free to leave
after chow at 1800 (6 p.m.) yester-
All V-12 men will be free on week-
ends from 12:10 p.m. Saturdays until
12 midnight Sundays. Those re-
maining at the Quadrangle will not
be required to return until 1 a.m.
Saturdays instead of 10 p.m. dead-
line as on week days.

sayin': 'look here sir, I'm in the
Transportation Corps and all this
walking will just about ruin my rep-
utation.'" Even the diligent Lt.
John (ab-out face) Coman ration-
alizes thusly, "Now under Article
XXXVII, Subsection (5), 78b of the
Geneva Convention, even lowly pris-
oners of war are entitled to humane
treatment etc. etc...
And just before the final blast
of assembly the basso profundo of
Capt. (Pres.) Driscoll roars forth,
"What they really ought to do is
change thedmanual to read, 'tis to
be shot to death with musketry, to
be hanged by the neck until dead,
to be skinned alive at the JAG
School' ".
All through the day it goes and far
into the night,--wherever the Army
is --whether it e in the far flung
encampments beyond the seas or a
luxuriously appointed Army campus.
It's a tradition or something and as
much a part of the Army as a pair
of GI pants.

Complaints against motorists who
have apparently driven further than
their ration allows will be surveyed
by district offices, Serious offenders
may be cited into ration suspension
hearings and face possible loss of ra-
tions for any period through Decem-
ber. Less serious cases will be referred
for action to local boards.
Motori;ts holding A ration books
need fear no interference from the
OPA unless they are more than 240
miles from home, Lindbloom said.
Nor will holders of B and C books
be likely to run into trouble, Lind-
bloom said, if they remain within
their districts. He pointed out that
most holiday objectives may be
reached legitimately even by supple-
mental ration holders.
"If they can show they have saved
and will save their non-occupational
mileage in the current two-month
period, then they may drive 90 miles
or 180 miles round trip," he said.
Those having supplemental ration
books are limited to 90 miles a month
for non-occupational driving--gaso-
line for which must come from the
motorist's A book, Lindbloom re-
minded drivers. The current A books
run from May 21 to July 22.
