In spite of the fact that front
pages are and have been filled the
past few days, Timely Topic No. 1
would seem to be Easter. And not,
only is"Easter time the time for
eggs"' but "This morn is Eastern
morn"-making it all the timlier. j
When we were a child Easter main-
tained its importance because of that
outstanding character The Easter
Bunny-a fascinating creature in-
We always questioned the origin of
the Easter bunny and have almost
come to the conclusion that said say-
ing came from someone talking with
the inevitable late March or early
April cold with the words, "Easter,
Buddy, Easter" and resulting sound
effect, "Easter, Bunny, Easter." It
was only after attaining an age some-
what above 12, however, that we were
able to figure this out, so before this
time we had complete faith in that
Interest in the Easter Bunny is soon
replaced by interest in the Easter
Bonnet. Here it is not hard to find
origin what with Paris designers
shouting "Ze chapeau, Mam-zelle, it
is ze chapeau that is important.
Non?" and American women failing
to answer, "Non!" either loudly or
There comes a time in the life of
every student when his interest ad-
vances to the Easter Vacation. Par-
ticularly noticeable is such interest
when what we might term an "off-
year" rolls around. We might go fur-
ther and define an "off-year"-that
is, when Easter Sunday fails to come
during regular Spring Vacation.
Such a year is 1940. The exodus
from Ann Arbor at such a time is
amazing in view of the fact that
classes go diligdhtly-but perhaps less
noisily-on. On the other hand, we
might look at such a weekend as giv-
ing near two-Spring vacations.
At any rate, many are the fond par-
ents made happy by the return of
their offspring-and by chance a girl
friend or boy friend, as the case may
be, who."just happen" to be home
from one of those odd institutions run
on the quarter system.

In speaking of the proposed sub-
iects and questions for discussion,
Miss Maxted said that they will in
all probability be light enough so as
to make library and reference work
unnecessary. By so doing, the Com-
mittee in charge of debates hopes to
attract a larger and more diversified
group of women.
League Points Given
Those who participate will receive
league points, the committee stated,

women's team will meet the victors

Intramural debating, this spring,
will be new in that in past years a
faculty adviser supervised all plans
and contests. Mr. Frederic Cran-
dall of the speech department acted
in that capacity last year. Anne
Hawley, '40, and Betty Bricker, '40,
acted as co-chairmen of intramural
debates last year.
The only prerequisite for becoming
a member of the debating group is
that the candidate is interested in
debating and is scholastically eligible

Action Was Necessary
Admitting freely that they were re-
sponsible for removing from view
some dozen or so posters placed in
conspicuous spots on campus, the en-
gineers feel that they are justified in
stating categorically that the action
was necessary if Ann Arbor wishes
to retain any vestige of civic pride1
in the appearance of the community.
"Obviously, the posters were an eye-
committee reported. "The College of
Engineering regretted that this step
was necessary, but the committee was
appointed because the engineers real-
ized their duty to the public, and
were driven to this action by their
obligation to the Unversity to remove
all blemishes to the campus from
view." The chairman of the com-
mittee modestly requested that his
name be withheld.
Lawyers Plan Ietaliation
Although the removal of the posters
was necessary for aethetic reasons,
the engineers realize that since all
lawyers are lacking in the finer sen-
sibilities, they will not understand
this and will consequently attempt
retaliation. Therefore, another com-
mittee has been appointed to investi-
gate the rumour that a group of bar-!
risters have plotted to attain access
to a certain house a block or two
from campus wherein reposes a giant
slide rule similar to the one which
will be used to decorate Slide Rule
