Scores o UN men will again feel the affect of the war when they, along with millions of other men between 20 and 45, take, part in the third selective service registration from Saturday, Fel. 14 and Monday, Feb. 16. There will be three registration stations for university students. On city campus, students may register either in the YMCA rooms of the Temple or at the coliseum and on ag campus at room 304 ag hall. Stations will be open from 7 a. in to 9 p. m. both days.

Over 1,700 UN men will be eligible for armed service following the registration. However, according to (ieneral Guy Henninger, director of Selective Service, students regularly enrolled under contract in advnce KOTC are not required to register on Feb. 14 and 1G, as they are already enrolled in the armed services. i!en. Uenninger explained that if a student is in advanced KOTC and is not under contract then he must register. If at any time his KOTC contract is cancelled he must go to the local draft board and register within five days from the date of con tract release. Register on Campus. "We would appreciate it," (Jen. Uenninger said, "if all university students would register at either the ag college campus instead of going to other polls located in the '-ity. This will save the student time, and it will be more convenient for him." Maj. II. U. Turner, assistant selective service head, stressed the importance of careful consideration by the student before he indicates his home residence, lie explained. "The home resi dence that the student puts down will indicate what draft board wil have jurisdiction over him. It will only be the student who can determine where his home residence will be, and it should be the one that he is in touch with most frequently during the year." Keep Contact with Board. When the students sign up at the booths at the university, his records will be sent to his home draft board. When atiy student moves he should inform his board immediately, so that they can keep in contact with him at any time. "Men reporting for registration should be prepared to ask nine questions." Major Turner said. "Name, age in years and date of birth, residence, mailing address, telephone, name and address of person who will always know address of registrant, employer's name and address, and place of employment."

At Harvard the men will be given 18 months of continuous graduate work along with 248 other additional students who will be trained for reserve officer's commissions. Both Gardner and Park received $1000 scholarships. The critical need for quarter master officers .caused the War department to increase the size of the ROTC unit at Harvard. Men were selected who had at least three years of college work with good scholastic average, who had two years of basic ROTC training or its equivalent, had met physical examination standards and who were definitely officer material. Gardner was a member of Sigma Xi and recently was named the "Stuart scholar" at the college of agriculture. Both he and Park were working toward their mas ter's degrees in agronomy before going to Harvard. Their work there will lead to a master degree in business administration and also commissions in the quarter master corps of the army.

Students Sec Slight Defense Aid in Panhellenic Dance Ban BY JEAN BAKER. With National Defense becom ing a by-word on this campus, students as whole were amazed and bewildered at the recent de cision by the Student Panhellenic Council to move exchange dinners from Wednesday to Friday and Saturday nights and to do away with hour dances. Althought feeling that perhaps the spring hour dances were un necessary, most students failed to comprehend the logic of conserving for National Defense by promot ing bigger and better exchange dinners. Not only do most soror ities and fraternities serve better than average meals at these din ners but with Lincoln members attending as a rule, it means more volume expense. Voicing the gen eral student opinion, Polly Parmele says, "exchange dinners would cost much more." "Exchange dinners just won't work on week-ends" according to Nancy Newbranch, who agrees with Val Anderson that any time saved by the elimination of hour dances would be spent on the ex change dinners. "Picinic weather Is approaching and who will want to go to an exchange dinner" is the comment of Lois Christie and Bob Hyde; while Dorothy Filley, Mary Jo Latch and Barbara Ernesty all agree that the week-end exchange dinners will entail much more ex (See BAN, page 4) Marine Officer Spends Final Day on Campus Lieutenant J.

In terested students are asked to re port to the office of the dean of student affairs. To qualify for the Reserve, a student must be a sophomore, jun ior or senior in excellent physical condition. He must belong to no other military organization includ ing the Army or Navy ROTC. Accepted students will probably be allowed to finish school before being called to active duty but they are liable to call at any time. After an intensive officer's train ing course, the applicant will be commissioned a second lieutenant in the Marine Corps Reserve.
