Williag To Try Again
In spite of the general ill repute
of blind dates on campus most of the'
people questioned replied that theyI
would again try their luck in this'
way. Eighty-five to 36 was the wom-
en's verdict in favor of another blind'
date and 41 to 19 was the men's. The
others refused to comment. Some
very forceful answers came in on both;
sides of the question.
People from out of town do not
fare well when they attempt to get
a blind date with a Michigan woman.
Only 56 answered that they would
accept a blind date with an out-of-
town person and most of these were
grudgingly made. The men are not
so restricted in their tastes, for 32 of
them would take out outsiders while
only 25 answered that they would not.
A human interest story was dis-
closed by one fraternity man con-
cerning a date from out of town. "We
clicked," he wrote, "and went steady
for a year, then broke up because of
the distance separating the two of us
otherwise we'd still be hitting it
What Not To Do
A man who calls up a sorority or
dormitory corridor and asks if there
is anyone in the house who would
go out is facing terrific odds. More
than 105 women answered that they
would not accept the offer and only
11 admitted that they would. Even a
worse obstacle faces the student who
calls up a young lady from one of
his classes and asks her for a date. If
she doesn't know him or can't even
place him, she won't go out with
him: that is only five out of the 125
would. If she does know who he is
the chances are better, for 70 women
answered that they would then "take
the chance."

An offering by a Daily staff mem-
