800 WACs Party Guests
A long line of WACs waited outside the door while within a pretty blonde WAC held out her hand for "Madame Zonga" to tell I her fortune.
All were among more than 800 WAC guests of military police assigned to duty in downtown Des Moines, at a Halloween party Wednesday night in the United Service Organizations (U.S.O.) club rooms, 615 Locust st. Various Diversions.
There were WACs all over the U.S.O, center — smging, making voice recordings to send home to the folks, drinking punch, playing Chinese checkers, eating doughnuts, drinking coffee, playing bingo, and dancing.
The more popular attractions, according to the length of the lines of girls waiting their turn, were the fortune teller, the weight guesser and the dart game.
Madame Zonga was Mrs. H. N. Barnes, 4417 Kingman blvd., who volunteered to tell the WACs' fortunes.
