Students' Original
Hitch-Hiking Ideas
Give Good Results
Original ideas for hitch-hiking are
rampant on campus, particularly
since the recent mass exodus to State
by love-lorn lawyers and dentists.
The most favored innovation con-
sists of small signs on the sandwich-
board order, to which paper maize
and blue M's are pasted, and which
also indicate the hiker's destination.
To Herbert S. Heavenrich, '44E, be-
longs the credit for originating this
IIt all began when Heavenrich de-
cided that his thumb was getting
too much exercise. He rigged up a
cardboard thumb, with a sign read-
ing, "Toledo, Please," beneath and
took to the highways. He got to To-
ledo and back with ease, and because
of his success, the idea spread.
