To the Editor:
There has been so much talk of
the Michigan "Goon girl" that I de-
light in the fact that this creature
will finally come to life and be de-
fined at the style show. Too often
have we Michigan girls endured the1
taunting of the men as they warble
the charms of the various and sun-'
dry females who are scintillating,+
beautiful and so forth, but not from
Ann Arbor town. Which is all pretty
But the fact that much comment
has been going on since the search
for "what does Alice look like" and
still no one can figure out what
said creature is like, is heart lifting
in itself. If no one knows what a goon+
girl is then probably Michigan has,
none such. But I guess that it is
pretty far fetched. However, just to
prove to all men that there is no Alice
on this campus, I will attempt to de-
scribe her (that's what they really
want, isn't it?)
First of all, she has the proverbial
"dish water hair," no certain color,
at least none that we can identify.
She is no particular height or weight,
just medium in everything. She wears
skirts that are below the calves of
her legs, sweaters that definitely do
not match anything, and injuries
above injuries, anklets with high
heels. Her clothes are perpetually
mussed, her coat has been left out in
the sun to fade, etc.
Not that I object to glasses, I wear
them myself, but Alice is not con-
tent to just plain wear glasses, but
must appear conspicuous with ugly
black horn-rimmed spectacles. So
even if she might have pretty eyes,
she keeps it a secret.
Now let's see-well I guess that just
about covers everything. Now, I ask
you, have you ever seen her at Michi-
gan? (No reply requested).

What 1s College?
To one great phrase-maker,
college is the apprentice-
ship of life.
To us, college means all
this, and more, too. It
means study and research,
athletics and activities,
community living and bull-
sessions, parties and per-
formances, classes and
examinations, grades and
graduation. Add to these
the thousand and one events
of a college career, and you
get the true answer to
"What is College?"
And to get a true picture
of all phases of college life,
readers of this paper get
accurate local news in our
own columns and "national
college news in picture and
paragraph" in our Collegi-
ate Digest picture section.

plete local news regularly
