Edible Orchids
To Be Offered
Pay-Off' Dates
Fate flipped a coin and picked Fri-
dAy. Yes, gentlemen, Friday it is
when the cream of the campus crop
of feminine pulchritude pays off its
debts. Dinners and dances, J-Hops
and proms, movies and sleigh rides-
Michigan women mark them off the
debit column and write "Pay-Off" to
their credit.1
They did it last year, too-but not
with quite the finesse, the artistry,
that they plan this year. Why? Be-
cause under the sponsorship of Mor-
tar Board, the guiding light behind
all Pay-Off plans, a flower shop is
being opened between 3 p.m. and 51
p.m. Friday in the lobby of the Leaguei
--one of the few in history devoted
entirely to men.
Whether your taste runs to orchids,
roses, or gardenias, it will be satis-
fied by the delectable display of deli-r
cate blossoms-made of celery tops,t
radishes, and brussels sprouts--on
the couter of the booth. Each dain-j
ty nosegay including a sprig of pars-l
ley and paper doilie may be purchasedr
for the insignificant sum of one dimeI
(yes, I said ten cents), and will bek
delivered for a slight extra charge.
In addition to being beautiful, theI
corsages have one other sterlinge
quality-they're edible. Instead oft
buying him a coke, you let him eatt
a radish-much beter for him, really.r
