War Council
Aids Norway
30 Cartons of Clothing Sent;
More Contributions Asked
Appreciation for the 30 cartons of
Iclothing sent by the University Wo-
men's War Council to the American
Relief for Norway organization was
expressed recently in a letter from
the organization to Miss Ethel Mc-
Cormick, League Social Director.
Clothing for Norwegian relief may
be brought at any time to Miss Mc-
Cormick's office in the League, from
which it will be shipped to the or-
ganization's headquarters in Chicago.
and thence to Norway.
The clothing situation among the
Norwegians was described in the let-
ter, which stated that it is impossible
to purchase fabrics in the country.
"The shoe situation in Norway is
deplorable," the letter says, "so the
12,000 pairs of shoes we have already
shipped will come to good use, as well
as the twelve carloads of clothing
which have arrived in England on
the way to Norway. We are now
working on another carload.
"Only by using our imagination."
the letter continues, "can we picture
the dire need of the occupied coun-
tries, and the whole truth will be-
come known after the invaders arel
driven out. Our one hope is that this
will occur soon so we can reach the
undernourished, the sick and the
imprisoned before winter again sets
War Projects Listed
The University Hospital and Laun-
dry projects are being kept open by
the Women's War Council for the

Custom Reinstated in Rainbow
Room After Year's Absence;
Orchestra Will Remain Here
Union football dances, as well as
weekly dancing, will be revived after
a year's absence with the return to
Ann Arbor of Bill Layton and his
orchestra on Saturday, Sept. 16, it
was announced yesterday by Glenn
White, USNR, a member of the
Union Executive Committee.
The first dance will follow the
game with the Iowa Seahawks, and
will be held from 9 p.m. to mid-
night in the Rainbow Room, the
Union's main ballroom.
After Sept. 16, Layton's twelve-
piece orchestra will play for dances
from 9 p.m. to midnight every Friday
and Saturday in the Rainbow Room.
Union membership will be necessary
for admittance, and persons. must
fshow Union cards in order to pur-
chase tickets.
The tradition of special football
dances will be carried out by the
Union throughout the football sea-
son, according to White. "There's
a difference between ordinary dan-
ces and football dances." White
said yesterday, "The latter means
an all-day date for the game and
for the dance. There will be a lot of
alumni around, and we'll celebrate
our victories."
Regular week-end dances have not
been held in the Union for a year,
for the ballroom has been used as an
Army mess hall. With, however, the
withdrawal of the majority of ASTP
units, the way again became clear
for the holding of weekly dances in
the Rainbow Room.
