"Is it a popcorn stand or a
paddy wagon?"
Ann Arbor's new buses seem to
excite much comment of this
kind; but Eldon C. Jones, assist-
ant manager of the City Bus Com-
pany, says that the customers ac-
tually like them because they are
peppy, maintain their schedule,
and ride well.
Service on the three routes went
into effect on August 31, before
the paint on the new buses was
quite dry from the factory. The
City Bus Company is the third
firm since 1943 to try to provide
effective service for Ann Arbor.
City Without Transport
For about two and one half
months this summer, the city had
been without transportation be-
cause the Ann Arbor Transit
Company had suspended service.
Instead of using the old red and
buff buses of the Detroit line, the
company is starting out with
brand new black and white ones.
"They are hand-built, not yet
on the production line," Jones
said about the buses. This bantam
bus is being produced experimen-
tally by the Divco Truck Corpora-
tion of ' etroit. A demonstrator
was in operation here last April.
When a bus is numbered "" on
the front, it means just that - it's
its serial number.
Improves Safety
Right now Arvin Marshall, the
owner of the transit company, is
cooperating with Divco to improve
the safety features and design of
the bus. A few other experimen-
tal ones are being used through-
out the country. In Cleveland they
serve as hospital buses for dis-
abled persons.
Black, white and gold - Ann
Arbor's city colors - were chosen
for the buses, but due to a slight
misunderstanding, they came out
looking like skunks. Inside they
have green upholstery and seats
for 21' passengers.
Conglomeration for Body
The body of the bus is rather a
conglomeration. In fact, it has a
Divco body and transmission, an
International differential and a
Nash Super engine.

About 1,100 passengers ride
daily on the six buses. The line
provides service on the half hour
at each stop. Their new Broadway
line just started three weeks ago.
In addition, contracted school
buses are run by the firm. They
carry about 850 Ann Arbor school
The fare on the passenger lines
is 25c.
Garg Plans
Lush Party
At Hospital
GARGOYLE is at it again.
Somehow a rumor got started
that GARG was giving a party for
the University Hospital's crippled
children, Until last week, nobody
on the magazine's staff knew any-
thing about it.
"Then I heard about it," said
Michael Sibley, GARG staff ad-
visor, "and, by golly, the idea was
a wowser! We quickly organized
into committees and tabled the
However, soon the public be-
came indignant: it looked as if
something had to be done - and
be done soon. Besides, the idea of
a party had a sort of lush vi-
brancy - you'd hardly expect of
that kind ,of thing," Sibley con-
The party was organized quick-
ly and thoroughly. The date was.
set for Thursday night, October
22. Based on a pre-Halloween
theme, there will be refreshments
and decorations for the children.
Fifteen of the campus's most
beautiful girls (selected by Sibley
himself, will serve as hostesses. A
giant pumpkin two feet in diam-
eter, carved in gruesome carica-
ture of the GARGOYLE editor
and lit from inside, will be used
as the grande centre-piece.
"By golly, those kids should'
have a wowser of a time," finished

The law school's Odd Lot In-
vestment Club held its first meet-
ing of the year this week.
Prof. Alan N. Polasky of the law
school spoke on "The Lawyer and
His Role in the Field of Invest-
ments." Prof. Polasky is the club's
The Odd Lot Club is a special-
ized organization which proposes
to familiarize its members with
the field of investments, to make
them aware of the responsibility
of the lawyer towards his clients
in this field, and to give the fu-
ture some practice through mock
Invites Guest Speakers
The club, which is now in its
third year, invites prominent men
in various fields dealing with in-
vestments to act as guest speak-,
ers at the monthly meetings.
Men from such fields as law, in-
vestments, manufacturing, and
business have spoken in the past,
and will again this year.
"We are going to try to get
George Romney of American Mo-
tors for next month," Joseph
Jerkins, '60L, president of the club
Other prospective speakers in-
clude Frank Tait, past president
of the Electric Power and Light
Companies of the United States,
and several others.
"We would like to get Walter
Reuther too," Jerkins added.
Holds Mock Contest
In addition to its lecture sched-
ule, the Odd Lot Club holds each
year a mock investment contest,
to give their members practice in
stock speculation.
Each member is given $50 thou-
sand in mock money to'invest as
he wishes. "This leads them to
delve into various companies and
kinds of stock," Jerkins noted.
At the end of the year, the
member who has made the most
money from his $50 thousand gets
a cash prize. "Last year the win-
ner got $30," Jerkins added.
The officers, of the Club this
year include Jerkins; as president,
Robert Leutheuser, '61L, vice-
president, George Cronin, '61L,
treasurer, and Kenneth Webb,
'60L, chairman of the Speakers'

The club meetings are held
monthly in the lounge of the Law-
yers Club. The November meeting,
like all of the rest, will be open to
the public, if room permits.

lated to the history of European
commerce from about 1450 to

The central theme of the li-
brary is to show from the original,
contemporary material, the exten-
sion of European commerce to all
parts of the world.
"We have found that many of
the lesser known booklets, pamph-
lets and tracts were expressions
of public opinion," he noted.
Write from Documents
"Often historians have had to
write largely from official docu-
ments and therefore lose the opin-
ion climate of the past which
these publications still hold."
Parker said that these little
known pamphlets are the best in-
dication of what the public be-
