Hair fell yesterday. Hot headed
students flocked to local barber shops
to rid themselves of all unnecessary
hirsute encumbrances, and head bar-

that brush cuts were confined to
certain individuals, and did not
extend to other students.

Students of broadcasting will offer
a second full-day program today
from the campus studio to the Pillars,
colonial establishment facing Angell
Hall. Broadcasting will begin at 8
a.m. and continue through 6:45 p.m.
and will include musical programs,
news, poetry, comedy, drama, tran-
scriptions and quizzes.
The purpose of the broadcasts is
to give students of broadcasing prac-

clude Donn Chown, Grad., station
manager; Richard Slade, '41, assist-
ant station manager and chief en-
gineer; Maggie Soenksen, Grad, pro-
duction manager; and Ted Mattson,
'41, continuity caretaker.
Recordings made by the Broadcast-
ing Service at the Annual Spring Glee
Club concert last month may be
ordered at Morris Hall. Two ten-
inch transcriptions of ten selections
will be available for one dollar apiece.
Some of the titles offered are: "'Tis
of Michigan," "I Want to Go Back
to Michigan," "When Night Falls,"
"In College Days," and "The Yellow
and Blue."
A number of Finnish Relief Con-
cert recordings and Louis Untermeyer
transcriptions can also be obtained
at Morris Hall.
