SHE CAME SHE SAW
(By Tom Dewey)
She was a sophomore and should
have known better,sbut she didn't,-
and therein lies the story.
About 10 minutes aftertheaEc.1 exan
in the Natural Science auditorium
had begun, there strolled in the usual
belated stude, this time a fur coated
one. She got her list of questions
from an instructor and started tc
work.
For 40 minutes the terrific struggle
lasted, she nearly chewed up a foun-
tain pen, swore internally and bore
evidence of a great surging hate foi
the man that wrote the test. Finall3
she gave up, went to the attendant,
and admitted that the questions were
entirely strange.
"But," said he, "the material is all
in the book."
"I suppose so," she faltered, "bul
I'm sure I don't remember Mr. G-
assigning anything like that."
"But Mr. G- teaches psychology,
and this is an economics examination,'
replied the surprised instructor.
Slowly it filtered in, and a dazed
sophomore wandered out of theNa-
tural Science building wondering
where it really was that she was sup-
posed to take the phychology examin-
ation.
BLIND POSTMAN FORMER
ATCHIR WITH GIANTS
By C. T. H.)
An observant individual having
nothing much to do about 5 o'clock on
any particular. afternoon, will marvel
at the phenomenon of a mail collector,
going about the execution of his duties
without the use of his eyes.
This man is Robert C. Carson, col-
ored, who has been handling Uncle
am's sacred charges for thirteen years
for the local postoffice. The duty which
is at present incumbent upon him is
that of night collector, and in com-
pany with a boy who drives the horse
and wagon that facilitates his work,
he performs this important task in a
thoroughly efficient manner. Onlook-
ers will testify that his accuracy is
remarkable.
"Bob," as he is familiarly called by
those who know him, is well known by
many of the students. Before coming
to Ann Arbor he was catcher with the
Adrian Giants, and when he joined the
force of the local postoffice he con-
tinued in that capacity with the team
of that organization until he was un-
able to hold up the big glove position.

BUT CONQUERED NOTI
Pasear Amazes !
ICub';Is iuriedln
HazeOf Work
(B3 A. T. F.)
One of the busiest features of the
University is the buildings and grounds
department. This very essential branch
of the University is divided into 10
sections, all under the direct manage-
ment of Superintendent E. C. Pardon
and his several foremen.
Upon entering the first of these sec-
tions, the storehouse department, one
is confronted with stacks of packages,
express parcels, magazines, periodi-
cals, and books. These are received
from all parts of the United States,
Italy, France, Switzerland and Ger-
many, and are written up, re-addressed 1
and delivered to various parts of the
campus. After wading through this
veritable maize of conglomerated mail,
one proceeds to the plumbing and
steamfitting department. Here is pro-
vided the information that the plumb-
ing and steamfitting department cares
for all University buildings, Univer-
sity homes and several other struc-
tures. An average force of 35 men is
maintained throughout the year to
handle this work.
Power Plant Intricate
Then, to proceed to the most intri-
cate 'branch of the buildings and
grounds department, the power plant.
At this place, the first revelation is a
huge electric locomotive, which is used
to haul coal and freight from the Mich-
igan Central depot. In the winter, as
much as 135 tons of coal are consumed

in a day. Mechanical devices, such as
automatic stokers, coal crushers and
giant vacuums for the disposition of
ashes, are used in the place of less
!efficient methods. With the completion
of the 600 kilowatt unit, theplant will
be able to generate about 1,600 kilo-
watts of electricity; 700 or 800 kilo-
watt hours are expended each day.
Department Complete
Still gasping from this array of sta-
tistics and facts, you stumble into an
atmosphere, clogged with sawdust and

the noise of saws and drills. This is
recognized as the carpenter depart-
ment. This section did more work
during the past summer than any Ann
Arbor factory.
And last of all, there is a laundry,
janitors' department, painting depart-
ment and volunteer fire sector to com-
plete a very instructive visit.

DON'T take a fellow's pipe. Take some other possession.
Because wrapped up in his pipe is a fellow's peace of
mind, his relaxation, his contentment. This is more than
true if it's a W D C Pipe, because then a good smoke is multi-
plied many times over. Our special seasoning process takes
care of this by bringing out all the sweetness and mellowness
of the genuine French briar. Just you go to any good dealer
and select several good shapes. Put them in your rack.
Smoke a cool one every time, and you'll be well on your
way to pipe-happiness.
