Risque Posters
Decorate CampAus
If nothing else can be said for
them, it must be admitted that the
feminine seekers after learning on the
campus have always been most dis-
creet and modest in all their ways
and byways that is until lately when
they sought to advertise a dance and
tea fight to be staged Saturday after-
noon in Barbour gymnasium.
Their intentions were high and
lofty, as usual, when they made a
ver', ver', nice poster giving a hint1
to thepoor boys unknown and unen-
tertained who bewail the fact that
they don't know any nice young. girls
upon whom they may waste all the
money they saved up while serving
in the Battle of Ann Arbor, that they
would have a chance to meet and
dance with just about the nicest girls
in town on Saturday. Yes, the poster
was attractive with a picture of a
couple doing the aeroplane glide or
something and everybody was all for
it - but the authorities - and they
thought it was risque and unbefitting
for a University affair. Know what
they did. Quickly all the posters were
ordered to have pieces of white paper
pasted over the picture of the couple
involved in fox-trot and accordingly
it was done. The pieces of paper
stayed on about as long as flu masks
stayed on some of our faces, and'now
the horrible and brazen posters are
flaunted again before the eyes of the
shocked populace.
