No Goldfish Gulpers
"ere, Despite 'Time'
Time, the weekly newsmagazine,
marched on in the wrong direction
this week when it reported that a
University of Michigan student had
swallowed 25 goldfish, Julius Aisner,
'41, the student in question, told the
Daily yesterday.
Started as a practical joke during
the recent fish digesting epidemic,
the tale of Aisner's feat was spread
throughout the country by a national
news service. A friend in Pennsyl-
vania's Ffanklin and Marshall Col-
lege telephoned the fish story to the
Boston Post, Aisner revealed. He de-
nied eating even one goldfish.
Chemical Ballet Termed
Success By Prof. Willard
The most spectacular event on the
program of the recent American
Chemical Society meeting in Balti-
more was an unique and entertaining
chemical Ballet, according to Prof.
Hobart H. Willard of the chemistry
department.
The purpose of the ballet, the pro-
gram stated, was to contribute to
what might be called "streamlined
chemical education."

Michigran Grad
Plans New Bill
Proposed Legislation Plans
Standardized Barhering
Dominic Dascola, holder of a bach-
elor's and a master's degree from the
University of Michigan is preparing
a model barber and cosmetology bill
to be submitted to the State Associa-
tion of Barbers, he announced recent-
ly.
The purpose of the proposal, Da-
scola explained, is to "raise barber-
ing from a trade to a profession," by
reorganizing the State cosmetology
and barber boards, and instituting
uniform conditions of sanitation and
supervision in State barber shops.
Dascola, who is the most recent
member of a family which has
claimed barbers for 140 years, and
who formerly was noted for being
the youngest registered hair-cutter
in the country, is at present the pro-
prietor of the "Esquire Shop" on
Liberty St. He was connected with
the Union Barber Shop for six years
prior to his purchase of his new shop.
He received a degree of Bachelor of
Arts in Political Science and one of
Master of Science in Speech from the
University.
