Student Opinion Still Favors
Miss America, Cools To Yale

Since the fate of the Yale team
was foreordained yesterday, the In-
quring Reporter turned his attention
to issues equally as important: name-
ly-Miss America and Yale Men.
The campus has been split in two
on both these questions. The coeds
stoutly maintained that they are
equal, if not-superior, to Miss Ameri-
ca in looks, charm and whatever in-
gredients placed in the mold to make
a real woman. One sorority, too,
went out on a limb and said Yale
men were far more preferable than
Michigan men.
Were these views merely the opin-
ions of ill-advised minority groups or
did they represent the true opinion
of the campus? To find out, the
Inquiring Reporter ventured out to
quiz a representative group of Uni-
versity students. He asked the men
about Miss America and her coed
sisters. He questioned the women
about the superiority of Yale men.
1.. Can you compare Miss America
to the Michigan coed?
2. Whom do you prefer: Yale men
or Michigan men?
Robert Levine, '41: "Miss America
is better than anything I've ever
seen on this campus . . . that is ex-
cept my own true love."

Detroit: "Michigan men are all right.
For that matter so -are Yale men,
but there's an Alabama MAN who's
tops as far as I'm concerned. You
Michigan boys have originality. This
whole idea of bringing me here shows
that. I liked the scheme . . but
really, I'm not qualified to judge
between you and those Yale lads."
Virginia Capron, '43: "I think Mi-
chigan men are all right. The Yale
boys were more gentlemanly on the
football field, but you can't afford to
be gentlemanly in that game. Yes, if
I had my choice between dating a
Yale man and a Michigan man, I
would date the man-not the school
he went to."
Gene Dasch, '42: "Miss America's
the example of a perfect woman. She
makes all the Michigan girls look
sick. Gosh, she's better than a movie
actress and has much more sex ap-
Mary Virginia Bush, '41BAd.: "I
haven't seen a Yale man that I could
recognize. Anyway . . . Michigan
and Yale men are all the same-
superficially. When you come right
down to it though, I'd take a Michi-
gan man any day."
Marcus Crapsey, '43: "She looked
very tired; but tired or not--she
looked much better than our coeds.
Did you. see her hair? No Michigan
woman has anything that can com-
pare to it-except one or two out of
the whole bunch."
Janet Morrison, Mary Grove Col-
lege, Detroit: "Yale men aren't in
the running with Michigan men!"
James . Ednmunds, '43E: "I haven't
seen her close up but from the stands
she looked pretty smooth. On that
basis and on the reports I've heard,
she. must be a lot better than the
average stuff around here."

Mr. Arthur Koehler, '11F&C, an
international wood analysis expert, of
the Forests Product Laboratory at
Madison, read the next paper which
he divided into two parts: first, the
results developed by the Forest Pro-
ducts Laboratory in the chemical
utilization of wood in the past year;
second,. where big timber values lie.
He pointed out that his laboratory
had developed a process whereby
plastics could be developed from soft
woods. This is significant, he said,
because hitherto, plastics were
thought to be obtained only from
hard woods.
Mr. J. H. Tigelaar of the Haskelite
Co. in Grand Rapids read the final
paper of the session. His topic was
"The Use of Plywoods." He dis-
cussed the advances and uses of
wood and wood products in all types
of ply wood.
