Presenting This Years Femae Wolf

Local Men
Told About
NEW Women
Victory Ball Is Especially
Dangerous Period; Males
Warned To Be Very Careful
Leap year or no, the WOMAN
is a wolf! They told us in mar-
riage lectures (I heard by the
grapevine; I wasn't old enough to
go) that wartime is no time to
think about the things a woman
has been thinking about since she
left high school or before.
But let a good man declare his
intentions of going in the servicea
and pronto! he's being wolfed. He
calls up his old flames, anyway
a dozen or so girls he used to
know and they all insist on having
him come over. Well, he goes to
see one of them. Then he discov-
ers the gal didn't want to sit at
homeand talk over old times, or
whatever you do when you sit at
home, but wants -to- go -out-and-
paint the'town red (on his money)
to show him a good time-before he
left.
So he heads to a little tavern on
L-----Street and they chug-a-
lug a few dollars worth.
Then the gal gets sentimental
. . she wants to dance. He re-
members his rubber soles but off
they go to the only place open
where she sees everyone she knows
and drooping on his manly (she
tells him) shoulders, laments to
everyone on the floor, "Bud is'

leaving for the Army, isn't that
terrible?"
They loiter off homeward bound.
She has wolfed him along this
far . . . but the greatest wolfing
is to come . . . a melodramatic{
good-by. He sits down to tell her
THE FEMALE WOLF
how great an opportunity he has
before him . .. liberating his coun_-
try from imminent bonds of slav-
ery. "But why do YOU have to
go," she dramatically sobs. Then
she lets go with a tornado of
tears. With a well-worn tear-
stained face she professes her
great love for him . . . how she
wished she could have treatd him
better . . . now all opportunity to
show her true affection is gone. .--
Then there is the man who has
sported on his chest that sparkling

fraternity pin for some three years
. . . no woman has been worthy
of that pin. Along comes the WO-
MAN WOLF ... she has dated him
off and on for two years . . .feels
she is worthy of that sparkling
emblem. After an accidental meet-
ing over hamburgs she wolfs him
into a date that last night (pri-
marily by rolling those big brown
eyes and talking up with that'
never-fail he-man line).
That last night arrives. The gal
turns on all those feminine-help-
less tricks that womankind has
collected since the Ming dynasty,
She reminds her sailor to-be how
silly that little ole pin is going to
look on his handsome navy and
white uniform. Then offers to keep
it safe until he comes back. This
sweetness is all too much for the
unconquerable male (who said he
was?). Off goes that sacred medal,
precious to his heart (and chest)
for three entire years, The woman
is a WOLF.
Then there is the gal who
knows everyone. She flies around'
that last week promising to write
very regularly to all her old bud-
dies, 'cause after all, she assures
them-letters from the gang at
school are the only consolation to
the service-man in all those lone-
some hours. She builds up her
letter campaign to everyone who's
leaving-they're all convinced that
it's going to be swell to get all
those letters. Then the letter-
writing woman-WOLF finds a ro-
mantic 4-F the day after they all
leave (Feb. 14, strangely enough)
and nary a letter. It seems the
WOMAN is a WOLF.
Daily Editors Deny
Theme Of Extra .. .
Annually an attempt is made
by The -aily editors to find:
theme for the J-Hop (now 1
known as the Victory Ball)
extra.
This tradition is herewith
discontinued. The present edi-
tors in no way lay claim to any
theme for this issue. But don't
misunderstand. They are not
apologizing.
This is the themeless Victory
Ball extra.

Noted War Correspondent
Reveals All, BarsNothing

By MECHENZIE DeWITT
ALGIERS, Feb. 5.- This corre-
spondent just returned from in-
specting the fluid front in North
Africa. The situation there is still
developing.
Present indicatons point to a re-
newed offensive by our troops al-
though an attack by the enemy
forces concentrated near Sidi Ga-
zook cannot be overlooked.
The problem of supply is com-
plicating the effort of both sides.
Difficulty in bringing up large
supplies of beer to pacify the na-
tive population is proving particu-
larly embarrassing to our com-
mand.
It was reported here today that

the Wolverine Squad'on .may be
used to fly transport planes loaded
with the beer. Native leaders have
long been demanding large quan-
tities of brew as their price for
cooperation in the present offens-
ive.
As to the actual military devel-
opments on the fighting front.
there are two possibilities: (1)
either our forces in the south will
attack to cut off the enemy troops
in the west, or (2) the enemy for-
ces in the west will leap into the
fray first to cut off our troops in
the south.
Mussolini, according to usually
reliable sources, has just made an
inspection tour of fighting areas.
