Coeds Are Urged To Sign for
Hostess Work at USO Center
Coeds attending the summer ses ion or the summer term, are urged
to sign up as a USO junior hostess at the USO clubhouse immediately
according to Helen Alpert, campus representative of the USO committee.
"Hundreds of servicemen descend on us every weekend to be enter-
tained and to meet nice girls," Miss Alpert stated. "So far, there haven't
been enough girls to go around and some of the men are a little discouraged,
but we're hoping the reopening of registration will take care of the
situation."
Recommendations Needed
To become a junior hostess, a coed needs only to present two letters
of recommendation, preferably one from a clergyman, and if these are
accepted she is given a USO pass. A pass entitles her to attend all
- 'of the club's social functions and is

Coed Alumnae
Ship Overseas
Four University alumnae, now
working with the American Red
Cross, have recently arrived in Aus-
tralia. They are Marion E. Hanson,
'41, of Mt. Pleasant, Mich., hospital
recreation worker; Carolyn E. (Bet-
ty) Davis, '37, of Findlay, O., field
recreation worker; Marcelle Sadlier,
'27, of Indianapolis, Ind., hospital
social worker, and Alice B. Singluff
of Chicago, Red Cross staff assistant.
Helen J. Hawkins, '28, American
Red Cross secretary, has arrived in
North Africa. Until her Red Cross
appointment, Miss Hawkins worked
with the Cleveland Diesel Engine
Division,. and previously with the
White Motor Company of Cleveland.
The safe arrival of three Red Cross
workers in England has also been
announced. They are Jane E. Bisbee
of Chicago, hospital secretary; Mrs.
Evelyn Coughlin Couse, '23, of De-
troit, hospital social worker, and
Maybelle E. Kahle, '41, of Milwaukee,
Wis., hospital recreation worker.

a pledge that she will put in at least
11 work hours every three months.
Many coeds seem to have the falla-
cious idea that being a hostess means
only that they come to the USO oc-
casionally to be entertained. On the
contrary, a hostess's job is to see
that the servicemen are entertained,
Miss Alpert continued. This means
taking the initiative in going up and
talking to them and asking them to
dance.
Must Clean Center
In addition, every hostess should
assume the obligation' to help keep
the USO spick and span, and should
devote at least an hour a week to
working at the club. We need stu-
dents to type, to help in the office,
to take care of the library, to dust,
to do dishes and other housework.
Married women or older women
may become senior hostesses. They
sign the hostesses in and out at the
dances and take charge of the office
during the evenings. They also take
it upon themselves to introduce a
shy serviceman to some of the junior
hostesses.
Among the new activities being
planned for the summer are horse-
shoes and croquet in the backyard of
the USO, picnics and swimming par-
ties. "We're trying to arrange some
swimming parties for both service-
men and hostesses in the near fu-
ture," Miss Alpert said.

Women's Clubs
Pledge Support
To World Peace
NEW YORK, July 15.-(AP)-The
National Federation of Business and.
Prof essional Women's Clubs today
adopted a six-point program approv-
ing international cooperation with
the purpose of stimulating study and
action by the Federation's 79,000
members.
Presented to the Federation's bien-
nial convention, the platform de-
clared:
* 1. To rid the world of aggressive
war is the paramount challenge of
our generation ...
2. Force should be the servant of
the law. Responsibility rests on the
United States to do its share in aiding
the organization of the world . .
3. A permanent court of interna-
tional justice should receive the sup-
port of the government of the United
States ...
4. Freedom of thought and expres-
sion must be considered on an inter-
national basis ...
5. The world is an economic unit.
Effort should be made to raise the
standard of living of people every-
where in order that the goal "free-
dom from want" shall be achieved.,
6. We cannot substitute declara-
tions of principles for deeds. Only by
action can we achieve the kind of
world we want.
