It was wonderful going into the

a joy to eat Mom's homcoeking once

delicious, i .ntalizing aroma
ing fr m the kitchen I thought
I would famish before dinner. Then
a? e table, aftr everyone else had
finished eating, I kept "stuffing it

y weren't used to having a pig
at the table, but for some reason I
couldn't stop.
Crash! Bang! shove�oh darn, I

worse than any previous Christmas
shopping days I had gene through.
What a crowd! Whkt noises! Of

exchange their gifts for a size
smaller, a size larger, or even for
something else. Tien there are the
kind of folks who don't like gifts of
of any kind but had rather have

JFirmt of nil. is the WAJkC really needed?
Emphatically yes! Already the President has authorized the
Corps to expand from 25,000 to 150,000. The Air Forces
and Signal Corps have asked for thousands of WAAC mem-
he rs to help with vital duties. Both Ground Forces and
Services of Supply are asking for thousands more. Members
of the WAAC may he assigned to duty with the Army any-
where � some are already in Africa and England.
Can the WAAC really help win the war?
The whole idea of the WAAC is to replace trained soldiers
needed at the front. If American women pitch in now to help
our Army (as women in Britain, Russia and China do), we
can hasten Victory � and peace.
What ran my rollege education contribute?
College training is important equipment for many WAAC
duties too long to list. Cryptography, drafting, meteorology,
laboratory work, Link trainer and glider instructing, for ex-
ample. If you are a senior you may enroll at once and be
placed on inactive duty until the school year ends. See your
WAAC faculty adviser for more details.
But eon i tire comfortably on WAAC pay?
There are few civilian jobs in whish you could earn clear
income, as WAAC enrolled members do. of $50 to $138 a
month � with all equipment from your toothbrush to cloth-
ing, food, quarters, medical and dental care provided, WAAC
officers earn from $190 to $333.33 a month.
