Bus-Boys Give Candid Views
Of Campus Food Likes, Habits

By ROBERT MANTHO
Bus-boys know more than
think. And the bus-boys at
'Union are no exception.

you
the

Constant contact with people at
their informal best-or worst-has
given the student dish-carriers much
food for thought. Close observation
of male eating habits enables them
to speak with the voice of experience,
although the statements may sur-
prise you.
Did you know, that money doesn't
mean a thing to the freshmen as far
as - food is concerned? They buy
anything and everything until they
get into the rqutine of following the
specials posted by the Union from
day to day.4
On the other hand, the older people
who are attracted to Ann Arbor by
a convention or some similar device
watch what they get carefully. Their
favorite dish is either ham or beef,

a bit of dessert, a good cup of coffee
-and they are satisfied.
Doughnuts and coffee is the most
universial breakfast and seems to
agree with the respective palates
when hurriedly gulped down. Seven-
ty-five per cent of the students who
cat at the Union arrive five minutes
before class, gulp down their morn-
ing openers, reach for a napkin
and rush for their classrooms with
coat-tails flying.
For some reason, the bus-boys re-
vealed, the professors are light eaters
at noon. Opinion varied as to the
explanation of this phenomenon,
but some advanced the theory that
the professors wanted to keep their
reasoning powers at razor-edge sharp-
ness in order to cope with the un-
usual intelligence of University stu-
dents.
People are the most complex creat-
ures! But the bus-boys aren't so
dumb.j

British Find
Means To Cut
Ship Losses
(Associated Press Staff Writer)
By KIRKE L. SIMPSON
Parliamentary re-endorsement cf
Prime Minister Churchill's war lead-
ership was so clearly forahadowed
that the virtually unanimous vote
of confidence extended him by Lords
and Commons alike is less interesting
%han certain remarks made during
the preceding deba:.
Both from the P.. im Minister him-
elf and from his Ad niralty Lieu-
tenant came intimations that the
British are finding means to scale
town ship losses by sea. Details were
x thheld for obvious military reasons;
vet in effect notice was given that
British shipping loss figures for the
past month are apt *o prove less
heavy than anticipated.
No Crisis Until 1942
That can be deduced from Church-
ill's assertion that a dangerpus ship-
ping crisis would not come before
1942,,and that American ship con-
struction would meet it then. Berlin
contends that tonnage losses of the
British since early April, wher the
last accounting was rendered in Lon-
don, have been staggering. With def-
inite knowledge of the facts, however,
Churchill reiterated his prediction to
Parliament that 1942, not 1941, would
be the critical year at sea.
Even more specific was the declara-
tion of an Admiralty spokesman that
encouraging progress was being made
against the U-boat scourge. He indi-
cated that a heavy toll of submarines
was being taken, although refusing
to reveal numbers or methods.
Taken together, however, the two
statements cover both phases of the
sea battle around the British Isles,
Churchill dealing with replacement
tonnage and the naval spokesman,
Captain. Hudson, with counter offen-
sive measures.

While those two well-armored and
heavily armed ships were at sea, Brit-
ish naval craft of equal or greater
power must have been assigned to
hunt them down. To what extent
that reduced naval protection for
ship convoys or anti-submarine pa-

be conjectured; but with those men-
