Seven Bowling
Leagues Enter'
Annual Match
"A strike" and "a spare" will beI
common expressions heard around the
Women's Athletic Building now that
the all-campus bowling team tourna-
ment sponsored annually by the Wo-
man's Athletic Association has start-
ed. The schedule for the matches is
posted on the bulletin board in the
Women's Athletic Building.
Women from sororities, league
houses, and dormitories who signed
up for the tournament have been
assigned to 34 teams. The teams,
which have been divided into seven
leagues, will play off a round robin
tournament within their own leagues.
The winning teams in each of the
leagues will then compete in an elim-
ination tournament for the title of
all-campus championship bowling
team. The league matches are sched-
uled to be played off March 20, 24,
28, and April 2.
Date limits have been set for each
match, and failure to play off the
math will be considered as default-
ing unless the bowling manager, Mar-
ian Weiss, '41Ed, is notified in ad-
vance. Miss Weiss also announced
that teams can reserve the alleys by
calling the Woman's Athletic Build-

Headline in a Detroit paper re-
cently- Are you A Selfish Tele-
phoner?" Which brings to mind as
a timely topic-after all we saw it
in a newspaper-what we might be
so bold as to call Telephone Types,
probably more prevalent and more
noticeable at "collitch" than at. any
other time or place.
Type A-whom we may class as
THE TANTALIZER, because he or
she arouses curiosity which is never
satisfied, is the individual who an-
swers the phone most diligently, then
calls or buzzes twice and twice only
for the person wanted, after which
the answer "I'm sorry he (or she)
isn't in" is made and-klonk-the
receiver is down just as the callee
comes tearing down the hall with the
"Now-I'm-going-to-get - to - talk - on-
the-phone" look in his or her eye.
Tybe B is The Uncooperative who,
when talking on the phone, refuses
to answer the other line and lets it
ring on and on regardless of the
jangled nerves of others who are
within two floors.
Type C may be called The Hypo-
crite, for this is the individual who,
answers the phone simply to stop
the ringing. After having found out
who is wanted he or she counts to
ten, then tells the phoner: "I'm sorry
but that person isn't in" whether
said answerer saw said person walk-
ing down the hall ten minutes before
or not.
Type D is The Helpful Yet Aggra-
vating because he or she answers
the phone and diligently calls the
person asked for, but instead of wait-
ing to see if an answer is forthcoming
proceeds to walk off and let well
enough alone, thus, sometimes leav-
ing the person on the other line
dangling the receiver for hours and
then unable to get back in when he
or she does try to make the call again
because the other receiver is off the

Rivalry Of Lawyers, Engineers

of their sheltered sanctum sanctor-

during the course of the year: at the
annual spring athletic contest, at

A lawyer passing through the con-

tradition held, was a major blemish
upon the honor of the college. and
engineers considered it their hal-
lowed duty to prevent any aspiring
young barrister from desecrating the

ence, and the engineers of the time
were not prone to verbal persuasion.
Only too eager to leave an indelible
scar on the engineer's pride, the law

The lawyers, so the story as re-

with the intricacies of such mechan-

its inner mysteries within the sanc-
tum of the Law Quadrangle.
