Service Men
Invited To Open
House Today
Inaugurating the first in a series
of open houses for servicemen and
Univrsity students, the Playhouse at
the Women's Athletic Building will
open its doors from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
and from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. today.
The open house will be informal
and the lone boy who wishes to get
acquainted will find a score of hos-
tesses waiting to greet him, show
him the building's sports facilities
and introduce him to other guests.
Men with dates and coeds who wish
to meet people will also be welcome.
For those who would just like
to relax, the terrace will be scattered
with comfortable chairs. In the
newly decorated lounge, chess,,
checkers, backgammon and cards will
be the feature attraction.
Badminton and shuffleboard sets,
croquet mallets, baseballs and bats,
and volley balls can be rented for a
small fee which will be used to pur-
chase new equipment in the future,
Miss Marie Hartwig, of the physical
education department said yesterday.
Equipment for the games will be on
the playing fields.
The open houses are being spon-
sored by the Department of Physical
Education for Women, and are under
the joint direction of the League
social committee and the Women's
Athletic Association.

women pictured above cleared brush and refuse from the tracks so
the trains could go through. In the foreground is Lillian Mikula, '45,

fered by the University and any per-
son interested in taking a nursing1

Bolton-Bailey bill whose passage in
Congress instituted thevnew $65,000,-
000 training program which will go
into nation-wide effect this fall.
First Government Subsidy
Miss Reddig stated, "This is the
first time that the Federal govern-
ment has ever appropriated money
for a nursing education, and I think
it is tremendously worthwhile for
young women to take advantage of
this educational opportunity. Nurs-
ing is work for the future."
The bill provides that nurses en-
rolled in this training program will,
have their tuition and certain essen-
tials paid by the government and
that they will receive a $15 monthly
allowance for the first nine months
of training, $20 monthly for the next
fifteen to twenty-one months and
$30 monthly for the last six months.
The bill also stated that "'there
shall be no discrimination . . on
account of race, creed, or color."
After graduation, the nurses may go
into military, civilian, or government
Will Alleviate Shortage
Mr. Parran stated in his telegram
that he "hoped for participation of
all eligible schools and immediate
intensive recruitment of large fall
Mrs. Chester Bolton of Cleveland,
member of the House of Representa-
tives, and Senator Bailey, who intro-
duced the bill to Congress, stressed
the need for a nation-wide training
program which would alleviate the
shortage of nursesncaused by the in-
duction of 3,000 nurses per month
into the Army alone.
Miss Reddig said, "As the Univer-
sity Hospital expects to participate
in this nursing program, I would be
glad to hear from anyone interested."

morrow and Tuesday at the League.

to 3 p.m. and the men may sign up

The bureau will arrange coke dates
between the applicants and from
there on "they are on their own,"

wants to ask the woman for a date,
it's up to him. If not, he can try
Miss Hastreiter expressed the hope
that the women would not 'be back-
ward about registering because the
bureau will offer an excellent oppor-
tunity for coeds to get acquainted
with the numerous service men who
would like to know some University
women but have not found the "right
approach" yet.

STUDENTS are dodging
squads of marching men
these days as the summer
term gets under way with
a predominantly military
outlook . . . Vfore than 200
men of the ASTP have set-
tled down to the cleaning
of fraternity houses in
which they, are quartered
and the attending
of refresher courses until
their regular program be-
gins July 12. . . . Army
men are also living in
Fletcher Hall now.
* * *
the fraternity houses for
the Army to move into
found their task extremely
interesting . . . At one
house the boys must have

the teeth were still there
but no longer in the box
... Someone had scattered
them all over the room ...
One soldier summed up the
situation aptly with the
remark, "Boy, what a party
that must have been!"
Work of cleaning the
houses included mowing
lawns, trimming bushes,
dismantling bars and ex-
cavating beer and whisky
bottles from innumerable
hiding places . . . to the
tune of five carloads of
TURNING OUT in white
sailor uniforms are the
1,300 Navy V-12 trainees
A welcome contrast
from the khaki that domi-
nates the campus, these
men can at least wander

Lion over the Fourth, most
University students left
town for the weekend, re--
turning full of ambition
for their studies.
FINDING OUT the hor-
rors of war are the Univer-
sity professors who lunch
daily in the Union Univer-
sity Club . . . Soup forms
part of every lunch ... but
since the Army has taken
to eating in the Union din-
ing room, no soup spoons
have been on hand for the
desperate professors, who
even tried straws as a last
resort . . . While the Army
had all the soup spoons,
the men had not yet had
soup for lunch, one enter-
prising waitress discovered
. Said one soldier, "Every

Weeks is required to. get
clothes washed. . . and
huge bundles are being
turned away daily . . .
Shortage of labor is re-
sponsible for the situation
...Army laundry is be-
ing washed in Detroit, the
shortage is so acute here
..- If it gets worse, most
Army work will be sent
to Fort Ouster, Captain
Zartman of the Quarter-
master Corps said.

RESULTS from the Uni-
versity Fresh Air Camp
drive last spring have made
it possible for 120 boys
from nearby areas to at-
