anniversary of the WAVEs, Lt. (j.g.) Helen Stewart and Harriet Simonson,
Sp (R) 2c will be in the League lobby today, tomorrow, and Saturday
to interview women interested in enlisting or applying for officers' candidacy
in the service.
In a message to the 72,360 members of the WAVEs, President Roose-
velt this week announced that in 500 shore establishments of the fleet,
women in uniform took over the work of Navy men. "They released
enough of them," he said, "from non-

This column will run twice weekly for
the purpose of acquainting the present
student body with the traditions and
purposes of the Michigan Union, and to
announce Union events. The opening
column is a message from the new Union
The University of Michigan Union
was established in 1904 with the fol-
lowing purposes: "To furnish a Uni-
versity social and recreational center;
to provide a meeting place for facul-
ty, alumni, former students and resi-
dent students of the University and
to help in fitting University of Michi-
gan men for the performance of their
duties as good citizens."
The greatest of the problems seems
at present to be furnishing entertain-
ment for the servicement and stu-
dents on campus. Such things as
the Hour of Fun, G. I. Stomps, and
the recently-inaugurated outdoor
dancing have all been presented by
the Union. Union members are at
present forming plans, in coopera-
tion with other campus groups, for
summer dances, and the organization
is looking forward to promoting a
series of dances which will begin
with the football season.
Also, the Union is endeavoring to
provide the use of its facilities for
the servicemen in the nature of a
post-exchange and canteen.
The main governing body of the
Union is composed of members of
the faculty, alumni members, stu-
dent vice-presidents, and is headed
by a student president of the Union.
The officers and executive council
direct the Union's campus activities
aided by the sophomore staff.

TROOPS NOW IN NAPLE
In War Again
"Brazilian naval and air bases,
which are strategically situated on the
road from the United States to Italy
and North Africa, are playing a
vital role in smashing the Nazi war
machine," Dr. Egbero L. Teixeira
of Brazil said yesterday in a talk
at the Kellogg Auditorium.
Dr. Teixeira stated that Brazil
was the first Latin American coun-
try to send a completely equipped
expeditionary force to the Euro-
pean theatre of war. "Just recent-
ly the first contingent was an-
nounced to have arrived in Naples,"
Brazil was totally unprepared for
war when it came to our shores in
the form of a treacherous attack by
Nazi submarines," he continued. "The
Nazis sunk many of our ships, mo-
mentarily isolating the northern and

Discussing the internal situation
