affair, which will feature Ralph Wil-
son's orchestra, a local band high-
lighted by vocalist Jean Brooks, a
University student.

are the cardinal points of the dance,
and each active local fraternity's
crest will be displayed on the ball-
room's walls. Highlighting the dec-
orations will be the silver and black
crest, placed above the bandstand,
of Inter-fraternity Council.

Major 'Battle' Is Being Fought
Just Eighty Miles from Caimpus
Beautiful Gull Lake, Michigan, site of the Percy Jones Veterans Hospi-
tal Annex, is the scene of one of the most serious battles of the war.
In the midst of green pine and oak trees, blue water, cool breezes
and a healthful sun, veterans of World War II are fighting with the same
courage they used at New Caledonia, Guadalcanal, and on all other
major battle fronts. They are fighting a battle for health and successful
adjustment against some permanent injuries.

The Percy Jones Annex is the
former Kellogg estate which has
been donated to the hospital for
the duration. Veterans recovering
from operations and those being
built up for further surgery are
stationed at the annex for two to
five weeks. The men clean their
rooms and assist at K P, but most
of the orders for the day call for
swimming, sailing and general re-
Last Sunday 35 University coeds
spent the day at Gull Lake and
learned for themselves that the prob-
lems of the war will be only half
over when the peace treaties are sign-
ed. The trip was instigated by Rab-
bi Cohen of the Hillel Foundation in
Ann Arbor and was sponsored by the
University. The coeds swam, sailed,
danced and enjoyed a picnic dinner
with the veterans.j
During the course of the day some
of the coeds remarked that they
could see the men relax and seem less
for blood donors for the forthcom-
ing September Red Cross blood bank,
and announcements are being sent to
the fraternity groups through "Sum-
mer Hop" ticket representatives, Hot-
te said.

tense and nervous. Even the patients
who could not bring themselves to
join the general activities began to
smile and laugh more as the day
Discussions on the bus ride back
to Ann Arbor found the girls
agreeing that as men are trained
to go into war so they should be
trained to go into peace. The vet-
erans stationed at Gull Lake are
only a few of the men who have
been changed physically and men-
tally by the experiences they have
had. These changes make it im-
possible for them to react nor-
mally to peacetime life without a
period of rehabilitation.
Association with thoughtful civil-
ians who realize that naturalness and
not emotionalism is needed by these
men is an important rehabilitation
activity. The coeds who made the
trip to Gull Lake expressed a fervent
wish to continue doing something
through the University, and as civil-
ian citizens to help hospitalized and
discharged veterans remember that
all life is not the horrible nightmare
they knew while fighting for the free-
dom they must learn to enjoy.

Saturday Party
Will Make USO
'Hell of a Place'
'A Devil of a Time' To Be Had
At 'Hades Hop,' Regiment Y's
Dance To 'Be Held in Ballroom
The USO ballroom will be "one
hell of a place," as the week's events
are climaxed by the "Hades Hop,"
which will be held from 9 p.m. to
midnight Saturday by Regiment Y.
headed by "Colonel" Helen Alpert,
"The whole place will be decorated
like hell," Miss Alpert announced.
"We want all servicemen and junior
hostesses to come and have one hell
of a good time."
A reasonable variety of dance
music will be assured, as Regiment
Y is inaugurating the policy of sta-
tioning junior hostesses at the nick-
elodeon to guarantee a constant
turnover of records.
Usual Events To Be Held
The USO is holding its regular
events today through Friday. The
last tour to the Willow Run bomber
plant will be held at 1 p.m. today.
The regular Sunday morning break-
fast will be served from 10 a.m. to
nearly noon at the USO. Eggs, ba-
con, coffee and toast are on the
menu, along with the Sunday comics.
Open house and the music hour
will be held between 2 and 3:30 p.m.
today, with refreshments, card
games, table tennis and music. On
the classical music program are
Tchaikowsky's Symphony No. 5 in
E Minor, Brahms' Variations on a
theme by Haydn, Symphony No. 6
by Shostakovich, and "I Hear Amer-
ica Singing," a cantata based on the
poems of Walt Whitman.
Officers' Night Initiated
On Monday the USO club will be
reserved for officers. The change,
according to Mrs. Burton, USO direc-
tor, was made because enlisted men
failed to use the club on Mondays.
Tuesday will be highlighted by the
"Sing Swing," held in the evening at
the USO, and the usual Wednesday
night dance will be held. Thursday
will be "ruckus night."
The Friday dance will be held from
8 p.m. to midnight, following the
dancing class from 7 to 8 p.m. in the
USO ballroom.
