Council Urges
Coeds To Join
USO Hostesses
Coeds were called upon yesterday
to rally to the aid of the League's
latest war project, entertaining the
soldiers, by Monna Heath, '44, presi-
dent of the Women's War Council.
"The response to the call for USO
volunteers has been good," Miss
Health said, "and we hope many
more women will register."
Each girl who registers as a stu-
dent USO entertainer will be asked
to serve four consecutive weeks at
the time she originally chooses.
Periods for entertainment are Fri-
day evenings from 7:30 to 9:45 p.m.,
Saturday evenings from 7:30 to 11:30
p.m. and Sundays from 3 to 5 and
7:30 to 9:30 p.m. The first two eve-
nings of the week-end will be spent
in dancing and games at the League;
Sundays will be a time of outside and
inside entertainment at the WAB.
Coeds will also participate in open
houses, Rec-Rallies and the JGP

hands of house presidents yesterday

Director's office in the League by

"Sub chasing in the Caribbean can
be a pretty exciting game!" Richard
Marion, member of the V-12 training
program and former electrician's
mate, said yesterday.
"During our search for enemy sub-
marines in southern waters, we
picked up four on the sound gear,
and unloaded at least 12 charges on
every contact.
May Have Caused Damage
"Of course, it's hard to tell when
you make a direct hit but there are
possibilities that we did some dam-
age to enemy subs in those waters,"
he said.
"In the South Pacific with a
convoy fleet, we ran into some Jap
bombers and a German submar-
ine. We were docked on an island
in the Phoenix group -when the
planes appeared.
Our ship was slightly damaged
when a three inch shell from one of
our own escort vessels caught our
Ship Repaired on Island
"We did our repair work on an is-
land base near the Phoenix group. I
spent nearly a month and a half on
that island altogether," he added.
"This one didn't have any vegetation
at all, just coral. It was at least 115
degrees every day and it never
rained. We did have open air mov-

ies there for entertainment, though.
That's all the entertainment we s.
in the months I was at sea.
"The greatest difficulty in sub
chasing occurs in rough water.
For us it was a common occur-
rence! Imagine loading "K" guns
for sending depth charges when
the water is so rough you have to}
bail it out of your machine gun
nests," he said.
Marion received his orders to re-
port for the V-12 program here when
his ship came into the Hawaiian
group, and caught the U.S.S. Hender-
son, a naval transport, home.

Navy Dentist Employs Strange
Jargon While Checking Teeth


Ii . -f . r

"Snake eyes on number 25 with
separate 'E,' tin can on number 12,
31 cross with 'separate I'!"
No, it's not a new game invented
by some ingenious student but the
code, used by Dr. H. A. Green, lieu-
tenant in the Navy Reserve Dental
Corps, in checking the teeth of some
1,300 men' stationed in West Quad.
"The code saves a 'lot of time," Dr.
Green skid; "snake eyes is our way
of saying there are fillings in both
cusps of the same tooth. 'Cross' in-
dicates a cross-shaped filling; 'tin
can' is our term for gold crown; 'E'
means an external cavity; and I'
means an internal cavity. A 'silver
O' is another Navy dental term for
a synthetic porcelain filling."
When Dr. Green calls "on the
black" to his assistant, it's no reflec-
tion on the sailor's personality. It
means he's charting cavities. "On
the red" indicates he's now checking

Informality will be the keynote of
the evening, Sawyer said. Shirts and

his check and the assistant charts
the position of the sailor's teeth as
he bites.
Approximately 250 men a day are
checked through the "Sick Bay"
dental office and what the dentist
sees goes down in Navy records as a
means of future identification of
each man in blue.
