Interesting Facts Concerning
Jordan Girls Come To Light





Residents Of Fourth Floor
Give The Low-Down
On Life Of La Femme
Michigan men fortunate enough to
obtain dates with the freshman
lasses residing in Jordan Hall must
prepare themselves for a 15-minute
wait. on the average, if they expect
to have their dates kept. Period of
waiting is from time girl is buzzed
until she appears to check out for
the evening.
This was one of many interesting
facts about Michigan women un-
earthed by this reporter in an effort'
to enlighten the misled youth of
the campus concerning the private
lives of the typical Michigan coeds.
Several of the fourth floor resi-
dents of Jordan Hall, representing
a cross-section of all freshman girls
living in that domicile, were queried
and their replies carefully recorded
in order to obtain this important
aformation- essential to the stal-
wart males who frequent the girls'
dormitories from time to time.
Out of 60 girls living on the fourth
floor of Jordan Hall, five give the
Michigan men a break by dating
them every night of the week; on
the 'other hand, eight do not go out
at all, deeming their academic marks
far more important than silly male
company. 40 out of the grand total
of 60 date three nights a week: Fri-
day and Saturday nights during the
weekends, and one night during the
week according to their class sche-
When questioned as to whether
the rujes were kept, Florence Wright,
'43, replied that they usually were.
"But everybody in Jordan has broken
,ne rule at some time or other," she
added significantly.
In answer to a question about tne
gossip that takes place among the
girls, Jane Wright, '43, said that the
gossip takes place after a date with
a boy. "The girls then get together
to discuss the good and bad points
cof the boys they have dated, and

Although t he girls find that most
dates are satisfactory, they have ex-

Florence Wright confessed that sh

within a month.

University-Owned Observatory

SEES CHAOS-C kiaos of phy-

Einstein (above), fanous physicist
seen in rceut fpose at a,~ Washing-

The McGregor Tower Telescope
which the University recently ac-
quired at Lake Angelus is only one
of a widespread system of observa-
tories. The observatory at Bloom-
fontein, Orange Free State, South
Africa, is the farthest-flung outpost
of the University.
The construction of the South
African plant was the post-mortem
fulfillment of, a life-long dream of
Prof. William J. Hussey, director of
the University Observatory from
1905 to 1926. Professor Hussey came
to Michigan from Wisconsin's Lick
Observatory, where he had estab-
lished himself as a foremost author-
ity on double stars as a result of his
systematic search of the northerp
skies. .
The occurrence and distribution of
double stars interested Professor
Hussey because they are a major
factor in evolutionary astronomy.
By a study of the relative proportion
of twins to single stars, a study which
involves above all steady, tedious
work, a better understanding of the
progressive evolution of celestial
bodies is being achieved. The Uni-
versity of Michigan is the acknow-
ledged leader in this field of re-
search, largely through the work of

lrn litisphere. In 192 his oppor-
unity came. Robert, P. Lamont, later
-ccretary of Commerce in the Hoo-
ver cabinet, invested nearly $175,000
in the project. A workshop was
equipped, an excellent 27-inch re-
fractor telescope was obtained, its
mounting was built, and a site was
determined on a mesa near Bloom-
The Orange Free State authorities
did not stint in their cooperation.
They leased the site to the Univer-
sity at one shilling a year and even
provided a home for the director.
In 1926 Professor Hussey, Prof.
Richard A. Rossiter, Henry F. Don-
ner and Morris K. Jessup set out to
build the new plant. Fate stepped
in to prevent the complete realiza-
tion of Professor Hussey's dream.
While in London he suffered a heart
attack and died, only weeks short
of his goal.
The other expedition members
carried on the work. Dr. Rossiter
assumed Professor Hussey's tasks
and soon the observatory was built
and in operation. Jessup and Donner
returned to the United States and
Dr. Rossiter has pursued the exam-
ination of the heavens alone for the
past ten years.
