Monday at the recruiting' center in the Cannon Memorial on Washington Blvd. The drive, sponsored by the combined nursing divisions of ths Red Cross, is to recruit Nurses Aides, students in home nursing and registered nurses for active duty with the Army and Navy.

With Miss Patrick will be another actor, Gene Lockhart. Both will speak over the loudspeaker system in the recruiting station. Detroit Quotas DISCUSSING the drive, the Red Cross stresses the close connection between the Red Cross nurse at battle station, the Detroit housewife caring for her families' ailments through her training in a home nursing course and the volunteer Nurses' Aide. With the requirement of 20 and more women on the home nursing front to back up one Red Cross nurse on the battle front, the three divisions have pooled their efforts to meet Detroit's quota in all three branches. For the division in home nursing Myrtle Vandermeulen, chairman of the home nursing division, has set her goal for the year at 14.980 certificates.

The nurses' recruitment must enlist 750 nurses for the Army and Navy. Chairman of Nurses' Aides Mrs. Carl Grawn is urging women to train as nurses' aides so that Detroit can meet its quota. A class is to begin Monday morning. Free Prv-- Thoto Making maps for the Army is a far cry from planning color schemes but Betty Gregory, interior decorator, finds it fascinating.

Lilly Dache's dim-out hat of pleated pink organdy ruffles has its own battery set which you. attach to your lapel. Klectric lights are hidden beneath the frothy ruffles. Designer Dache concocted the capot (upper right) in navy and yellow wool plaid as successor to the fascinator. For dark suits, Dache olfers the chartreuse and dubonnet plaid robin-hood hat with jaunty feather.

Ilarryson's "Mantilla" is a glorified version of the fascinator in black straw, black veiling, edged pleated white organdy.

DETROIT DAKY It Must Be the Needlework Y640 BY AILEEX SPAFFORD WHEN BETTY GREGORY, of 4SS Parkview, was a little pig tailed girl poring over her geography, she never dreamed that some day she'd be making maps for others to study. But the war has turned the world around in more ways than one.

So like most of the other women enrolled in the ESMWT courses at Wayne University Betty is' getting ready to take over one of the jobs formerly done by men. Topographic map making is to be her specialty. In this class, the girls study photographs taken from airplanes. Learn to interpret all the little gray smudges, white streaks and black spots. Finally, draw accurate contour maps to be used by the government, the Army or Coast Guard in planning military moves and such.

Government Sponsored APPROXIMATELY 65 different subjects are taught in the government sponsored ESMWT courses at Wayne and other college-level schools in Detroit. Unravelled alphabetically, ESMWT stands for Engineering, Science, Management War Trainees. In several of the classes, more girls than men are enrolled. Aircraft drafting, for example, is one for which women are especially adapted. They learn the basic principles of flight and airplane construction and are prepared to take jobs in engineering departments of airplane factories.

Members of the radio course are taught the mysteries of radio mechanisms so that they may inspect the assembly and installation of radios in Army trucks and planes. Laboratory Technicians THE INTENSIVE drawing course trains junior draftsmen for war plants. In the metallurgy class, students learn to polish specimens examine them under microscopes to determine the internal structure of the metals. They will become technicians in metallurgical laboratories. "We have many calls from the government and war industries for people to fill such positions.

More than we can possibly fill from our present student hody," reports Harold Donnelly of the Wayne College of Engineering. These part-time ESMWT courses are given during both the day and evening. They are 12 weeks in length and, as a rule, consist of two-hour classes twice a week. The majority require only a high school education. Enrollment for spring courses will begin March 15 with classes starting March 22.

Ammunition from the Kitchen Waste kitchen fats are needed for the war. They fire anti-aircraft and anti-tank shells. They make dynamite and gunpowder. Save, strain and sell all waste greases. Your meat dealer wdl pay you four cents a poundj for it.

It's told by a Detroit woman who is so thankful to get them back she wants no questions asked. She puts the whole thing down to the pixie-ish aspect life has suddently assumed.

Answers to Beauty Questions BY GRACE BARBER MRS.

U. Don't confuse deodorants and nonperspirants. They are different, although each has its place in grooming. Nonperspirants actually stop or deter perspiration. Deodorants neutralize perspiration and other body odors.

As to the number of times you should use a non-perspirant, some use it only once a week, some twice, some every day. Only you can judge for yourself. I think it's a good plan to have on hand both a non-perspirant and a deodorant, the latter cither in powder or cream form. Use them whenever you suspect you might be under any special emotional or physical strain. Nervousness often makes glands more active.

MISS II. I suggest two leaflets that will prove helpful. One is B-35, "Bleaching Tan and Freckles." The other is B-75. "Readers' Recipes for Bleaches" The latter is made up of methods used by women readers at home which have given varying degrees of success. A three-cent stamp should accompany your request for either of these.

Two wash days later, which brings us up to date, the housewife was sadly bringing in the wash and looking mournfully around the yard when she saw something pink and clean in the corner near the fence, looking like a dab of frosting on a chocolate cake. She hurried over and there were her nylons, newly washed, ironed and folded neatly, held down by a large, clean stone.

1 MRS. MARGARET PATTEN has been a member of the Sarah Ann Mother's Club of the Lutheran Charities Settlement House for some years, ever since Nancy, who is eight, and Robert, six, were old enough to play outside the house. And when Margaret's husband died and the burden of providing for two little ones fell solely on her, the settlement house workers helped her with her problems. Last week Margaret and William Rutledge were married at the Settlement House, the first bride and groom on the records. The Mother's Club insisted on it.

Mrs. Venus Cain baked the wedding cake. Forty-five members brought flowers to decorate the assembly room, and a pot luck supper for the wedding feast. The Rev. George Martin read the ceremony.
