My dear, weren't you positively
thrilled to death over the way the
team performed Saturday? When
I heard the score, I felt like cheer-
ing right on the spot, and only re-
strained myself with great diffi-
culty. Since I was home, I thought
perhaps the neighbors wouldn't
understand. If I had been in Ann
Arbor, I would - undoubtedly have
had support had I started a cheer-
ing section or something.
Anyway, I get prouder and
prouder of our team all the time.
They certainly deserve lots of
credit for the way they are going
at things. What with everyone
more or less against them and ev-
erything there at the start, it's a
wonder they just didn't give up
and tell the student body and all
the alumnae and everybody else
to go far away and see if they
cared. Me being a lady, I can't
express myself as forcefully as I
might were I a member of the
team, or even editor of Rolls.
Really, you know, if the team
could do as well as they did Sat-
urday when they had all of thirty
people out of the 10,000 or so stu-
dents on the campus down to see
them off when they left for Balti-
more, there's no telling what they
could have done had the remain-
ing few students gone down to
wish them luck, too.
be more strenuous this year than
ever before.
To foster the Christmas card
sale, several arrangements have
been made as a particular service
to patrons. Foremost of these is
the fact that a table will be main-
tained in University Hall through-
out the entire week. Purchasers
are not being asked to pay for
their goods until their order is re-
ceived. The committee is doing ev-
erything possible to make for
rapidity in the filling of orders.
Two weeks at the most is the time
require for the filling of even the
largest order.
Another source of funds in which
the women of the University have
been offered to: the League by Jac-
curing of the discounts which have
been offere ;dto the League by Jac-
