leaps and bounds," Mary June Has-
treiter, '44, chairman of the Bomber
Scholarship Acquaintance Bureau
Already a total of 215 servicemen,
coeds and students have registered,
and the bureau has turned over a
grand total of $53.75 to the Bomber
The bureau is open from 1:30
p.m. to 5:45 p.m. every Monday and
Tuesday. Women are requested to
register in the early afternoon if
possible, while the men are asked
to come after 3:30 p.m. "If there is
anyone who cannot register on those
days or at those times, they can let
us know and we will. try to be open
at a time that is convenient," Miss
"We would especially like to extend
the invitation to register to the Army
civil affairs specialists scheduled to
arrive in Ann Arbor this week."
Graduate students and officers are
asked to sign up also. In response to
the bureau's request last week, sev-
eral Ensigns registered and have al-
ready been taken care of.
"A number of the boys have
brought their friends in to register,"
Miss Hastreiter stated, "and we have
received reports from many of the
applicants on the success of their
One man came back to the bureau
the other day and said he "wanted
another girl!" When asked what the
trouble was, he replied enthusiastical-
ly,. "Nothing! She was a wonderful
date and we had a lot of fun bike
riding. Sometimes she's busy though
so I'd like to meet some more."
Miss Hastreiter Also stated that
the bureau had had several requests
for girls who could speak foreign

Lt. Joan King, WAC recruiting of-
ficer, has assumed her new duties in
the League and will be available to
answer the questions of prospective
WAC applicants any afternoon or
evening, and other times by appoint-
'The lid is off the quota and many
more officers will be needed in the
Corps," Lt. King stated. As a result
Major General H. S. Aurand, head of
the Sixth Service Command has an-
nounced the establishment of a WAC
officer candidate training program
to train civilian women as officers.
Capt. Edith M. Davis was in Ann
Arbor last week to establish finding.
committees among civilians here
which will recommend qualified per-
sons as candidates for the OCS. Prof.
Arthur Van Duren of the German
Department, and Mrs, Wilma Dona-
hue of the Psychology Department
will head the University finding com-
The qualifications in addition to
the general WAC requirements which
will govern selection of candidates
are: Applicant must be between the
ages of 21 and 50, and must have
had at least four years of experience-
beyond the high school level in
"work, social study, or civic fields en-
tailing responsibility, initiative, re-
sourcefulness and other qualifica-
tions of leadership."
The personal characteristics of the
candidate are very important, Lt.
King said. "The ideal candidate will
have in high degree the ability to
work easily and effectively with oth-
ers." She will also be able to subordi-
nate personal views and interests to
the welfare of the whole.
Women are needed to fill positions
as command officers, executive and
staff officers and operational offi-
cers. Under the latter classification
special skill in some field such as
photography, foor management, pub-
lic speaking, communications, pub-
lic relations and so forth will be re-
43 Coeds Attend Dressing Unit
"Last week a total of 43 coeds at-
tended the surgical dressing unit
setting a new record for the sum-
mer," Jean Whittemore, '44, chair-
man of the unit announced yester-
"The first day was a real boom
day. We had 28 women and 239
dressing were made," Miss Whitte-
more said. Only 15 coeds attended
on the second day, however.
The need for surgical dressings is
very urgent now, she stated. A recent
letter from Dr. Walter G. Maddock
who is now with the 298 General
Hospital in England reports that
since the invasion of Italy their 1100
bed hospital has been overflowing.
Two-thirds of these cases are sur-
"When you figure that the boys
in the service are giving 168 hours
a week to winning this war and are
giving up their lives if necessary,
surely it is not too much to ask each
coed to put in two hours a week,"

ONE WEST QUAD sailor
was lamenting his difficul-
ties last week as he wished
some kind - hearted coed
would either send him an
iron or do his washing for
him . . . Sailor Siegel has
been washing his undress
whites in a washbowl and
then waiting hours to get
"dibs" on one of the irons
on his deck.. . Laughing-
ly, Siegel explained that
the washing was hard on
his hands, but admitted
that he had worked out a
pretty good system for get-
ting his whites both clean
and "white." . .. Soaking
them first in water and
then in chlorox seems to
do the trick.
