gest array of side shows, amusements;
and concessions ever seen in Ann Ar-
bor - probably the greatest ever
placed under one roof. Until late
last night the big building resounded
with the noise of students hurrying
to finish construction of the more
than half a hundred booths planned
entirely by student organizations.
Little did one imagine last winter
upon. entering the Field House to
see the Wolverine basketball team
whip Purdue or the track team wal-
lop Pittsburgh that before the year
was over a giant Ferris Wheel and a
Tilt-a-Whirl would take the place of
the hardwood and the baseball cage.
But it has happened and it is prob-
able that the crowd that witnessed
the Purdue game will be but a
handful as compared to the throng,
that flocks to the Field House to-
night and tomorrow.

beastsgrowling ferociously and the
name of the booth is Tiger Hunt.
But the anti-climax comes with the
announcement that the role of the
igers will be taken by 50 hungry
beetles obtained from the University
The object. of the hunt is to catch
the beetles in small traps mounted
on a board, according to Dave Laing,
'39, chairman of the booth. Each
customer operates one of the 10 traps
and as soon as the beetles are re-
leased the winner will be the man
that catches a beetle first, he said.
The fraternity has mounted two
boards to provide for constant opera-
tion-while one board is being played
the beetles are corralled off the other
The idea came to the boys from an
article in the Reader's Digest de-
scribing a similar booth operated at a
carnival with beetles obtained from
under large stones. Trigon was. able
to avoid the back-breaking task of
peeking under stones because of an
article in The Daily recently that de-
scribed a variety of beetles main-
tained at the Museums to eat the re-
maining flash off skeletons in the:.

yestetrday is a group of trained
horses and other animals which will
perform tricks, Campbell said. The
animals are being quartered in Ann

to participate, Campbell said.

best-dressed bicycle riders. First
place winer will be given $5, second
place, $3, third place, $2, and fourth

Two Booths Are
To Be Projects
As the first projects of the newly-
organized Independent Men's Asso-
ciation, the group will conduct two
booths at the Michigras.
As one of the features of the carni-
val activities a radio will be raffled
by the Independents. Tickets have
been sold at 10 cents per ticket with
approximately 1,000 having already
The second booth will be unique in
the carnival-toy water guns being
used toextinguish lighted candles. A
difficulty which was overcome by
those in charge was thenguns 'shoot-
ing too much water at one discharge.
If this were not remedied the range
of the candles would readily have
been found at one shot. ..But the
guns have been regulated, it was hap-
The Independents, although newly
organized, have planned an extensive
program for next year with the pro-
mised assistance of faculty and many
campus organizations ,including the
Union, the League, the Assembly and
The Daily. It is hoped through spon-
soring such projects as booths at the
Michigras the campus will realize the
permanency of the group.
The present organization is being
sponsored by the Union and has as
temporary chairman Bruce Telfer.
