Members of the Hub- Ette brigade will be the cadets' "morale builder without an dancing partners. equal." Senator O'Daniel (you remember his Hill Billy band, of course, 1 says "proper music will do more to inspire patriotism, elevate morale, submerge sorrow and encourage increased effort than any other form of activity." We're telling you this to lead up to- u request. Several young men at the Lubbock Army Air base are organizing an orchestra. They are sadly in need of a bass fiddle and a piano and would appreciate the loan of such instruments. Of course later there will be squadron funds to take care of measures like this but at present all they have is the desire for an orchestra and a few ments. brass instru- If you have an upright piano you are willing to let the young men borrow for a time won't you telephone your name to the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce? * * * GOT THE BIRD The Woman's Angle hopes the response is as hearty but not as generous as that to the announcement Mrs. F.

Because of the wartime need for glycerin, used in the trianufacture' of munition explosives, it is vitally essential that the sentence, "the bubbles will last linger, incidentally, if you add a teaspoon of glycerin to each three eups of water in making the suds," p« omitted from the text of the St. Patrick's day release. The release was prepared before the Pearl Harbor attack, feihcsi'.that time glycerin has become nationally important. Its use phould certainly not be advocated for bubble-blowing. * *' * •We are printing that letter to call to your mind that even big fcompanies recognize the need of saving in little things.

According to assurances givenf Friday morning, girls and young women residing in the entire Lubbock area are eligible for membership in the Hub-Ettes brigade.' This assurance resulted from^an inquiry by Miss Elaine D. Hughes, employe of the soil conservation service in Brownfield, as to whether membership in the Hub-Ettes is confined to residents of Lvib- bock. She has been informed that it is not, and a membership application blank was forwarded to her. Other girls and young women in nearby towns wishing similar blanks were invited to send for them. Miss Hughes-svas credited with having suggested the thought, by her inquiry, that organizations of units of the Hub-Ettes in other towns of the area may be practical and desirable. If so, it was explained, it may prove an important contribution to the efforts of the brigade to help provide entertainment for men in the armed services. The procedure to be followed, 11 applications for membership are received from out-of-town girls will be the same as- those receivec from girls living in Lubbock. The application will be passed upon by a committee appointed for that purpose, and will be accepted or rejected.
