War Council's Skit To Show
Campus Minus Coed Projects
The highlight of the summer coed
rally to be held at 7:30 p. m. tomor-
row in the Rackham auditorium will
be a talk by Miss Helen Bower, well-
known newspaperwoman and former
U. of M. student, according to Pat
Coulter, '45, president of the
Women's War Council.
Miss Alice Lloyd, Dean of Women,
will be on hand to introduce the
speaker, and Miss Coulter will give
a shorttalk on the purpose and plans
of the War Council for coed summer
The entertainment feature of the
program will in all last approximately
one-half hour and will be a skit by
the War Council, which is sponsor-
ing the meeting.
Speaker is Former Student
Miss Bower's talk will have as its
theme the opportunities for women
in the post-war world. She is in
great demand as a speaker because
of her humorous style and authori-
tative evaluation of what women are
doing in the world today, and she is
well-known throughout the state for
her comments on Detroit public af-
fairs and for her column, "The Book
Rack," which runs in the Detroit
Free Press.
Miss Bower was a student at the
University, and left in 1910 to join
the staff of the Free Press, for which
she had worked previous to entering
college. She is now book and art
editor of the Free Press. A member
of Kappa Kappa. Gamma sorority,
Miss Bower has been editor of "The
Key," sorority magazine, since 1930.
Council to Give Skit
The theme of the Council's initial
"dramatic" effort will be, according
to Miss Coulter, a portrayal of a
campus devoid of coed activity. The
skit, written in rhyme by Helen Al-
pert, '47, shows the University as it
"might" be if the coeds should fail
in their war-time projects.
"The whole thing will look funny
to you," Peg Weiss, ,Council vice-
Former Students

lyn Marie, to Harvey Edwin Bradley,
also of Rochester.

"Stay out to swing out" is the
motto of Bill Layton and his orche-
stra and Bomber scholarship work-
ers who are cooperating to bring
University students an outdoor dance
with a soft drink concession every
Friday and Saturday from 9 p. m.
to midnight at Palmer Field.
"Every little breeze" picks up the.
strains of Layton's summer-time
swing and carries them to the danc-
ers. Lovely Judy Wood is the femi-
nine vocalist who steps up to the
mike with a smile and a song as the
boys sound her cue.
Favorite numbers both old and new
are in the Layton repertoire, includ-
ing boogey-woogey, waltz rhythms
and an occasional rhumba. Dancers
may attend in couples or individually.
Admission is $.50 per person.
Freshmen volunteers operate the
cokebar located on the terrace of
WAB. Arthur Bradley, Chuck Samp -
son, Gene Derricotte, Charles Wahl,
and Marvin Shebel are offering ser-
vice with a smile as well as the best
cokes in town.
According to Mary Lee Mason, of
the Bomber central committee, these
boys have set a fine example as stu-
dents who are willing to give their
time and effort to campus war ac-
tivities. Vera Zinck, Jane Gray,
Janet Barber and Marie O'Conner,
freshmen women, have also volun-
teered to help.
"Bomber Scholarship is very grate-
ful to these freshmen," Miss Mason
said. "We hope that other students
will be as responsive to requests for

formed to certain definite styles,"
she said.-
In my day we all wore identical
middy blouses and the same kind of
skirts, black stockings and brown
shoes. Any girl who dressed dif-
ferently was-well, just wrong.
"Today it's the sloppy sweater'
and rolled-up denims. But they
aren't new any more. It's been
