Filipinos Hold
Banquet, Dance
Hayden Is Guest Speaker
At Fifth Anniversary
Philippine students dressed in their
native sarongs and butterfly dresses
of pineapple cloth celebrated the fifth
anniversary of the Philippine Com-
monwealth with a colorful dinner and
dance at the Union last night.
Special guest speaker was Prof.
Joseph Hayden of the political science
department who addressed the group
of more than 80 students and facul-]
ty guests on the significance of Amer-
ican and Philippine relations. He re-
placed Jose Yulo, speaker of the Phil-
ippine Assembly, who was retained
in'Washington on official business.
Governmental affairs of the Islands
have been well handled by the officers
of the Commonwealth, Professor Hay-
den declared. No other nation, he
pointed out, has a balanced budget,
but the economic situation of the
Commonwealth is still precariou4
If the United States gives up the
Philippines, the action must be final,
he maintained. America, in that in-
stance, must cease all aid and control.

Invasion Strikes Arboretum To Sing Here

- .

Most college students are too so-
phisticated to believe in ghosts.
That was the general belief in and
about Ann Arbor until very recently.
But lately there have been numerous
reports of apparitions seen in local
It was only last night that Milton
Charnowitz, Grad., reported via tele-
phone to the Daily office that he had
seen a banshee-mat's what hecall-
ed it-while walking in the Arbor-
etum with an acquaintance. He re-
ported that the ghost said nothing
-just pointed to a sign engraved on
an old sheet he happened to be wear-
ing, which read, "Coffin Capers."
Another report of supernatural do-
ings around town was evidenced when
Henry Bleege, '42E (Don't bother to
logk it up; his name was. withheld
from the directory), was confronted
by a lean, pale gentleman, upon leav-
ing the owl show at a local theater at
2 a.m. Tuesday. The lanky one tapped
Bleege squarely upon the shoulder
blade and whispered confidentially,
"Would you like to see my appari-
Bleege consented and was ushered
into an alley where he was intro-
duced to a rather short, transparent
skeleton. Bleege maintaining his pres-
ence of mind, asked the apparition to
state his business and be gone. The
skeleton, whose name was Sam, clank-
ed his tibia upon his fibula (perhaps)
and tapped out a message in inter-
national code, which, freely translat-
ed, reads: "I'm here for the great

ghosts' convention at Congress' an-
nual Congressional Fling. December
6-Friday night.''
Immediately the office of Congress,
Independent Men's Association, was
called to verify the facts. Yes, it's
true-Congress is holding a big creepy

To the average University student,
football games may be synonymous
with long, thrilling runs, voices hoarse
from cheering, pretty girls in fur coats
adorned by giant chrysanthemums-
that may be the student's idea. but
members of Ann Arbor's police force
find that a game day brings them
only a great deal of extra work.
When crowds whose numbers reach
the fifty and sixty thousands pour
into the city, the police force must
focus its attention on the problem
of traffic direction.
Twenty-eight local policemen are
on traffic detail on football game
days, 26 directing the flow of cars
on foot, two in a squad car and one
on a motorcycle leading the bands.
Even this force, however, is insuffi-
cient when Ann Arbor's population
doubles or triples. The local officers
are reinforced by nearly 30 State
Tropers, six Pontiac policemen and
four from Flint, all of whom work
on foot unsnarling traffic tangles and
preventing them wherever possible.
Airplanes, often used to spot bottle-
necks and traffic jams near city
limits, then to radio directions for
rerouting to ground officers, have
been unnecessary during the current
home season.
The man in charge of the traffic
work by the Ann Arbor police force
is Sgt. Sherman Mortenson. He is
well satisfied with the way his men
have handled their work this year,
feeling that this has been the best
football season in many years, from
a traffic director's standpoint.
"I haven't had any serious head-

aches resulting from game day wor-
ries," he commented recently. "The
boys are all doing their jobs well and
are finding that motorists, realizing
that the officer knows the quickest
route through town, seem very will-
ing to cooperate with the men whoI
are in charge of keeping the streams
One reward for the officers' extra
work comes during the actual play-
ing time, when they are permitted
to watch the game. Early in the
first quarter, when traffic has thinned

out, each officer enters the Stadium,

ie keeps one eye on the play and
the other on the spectators, watchful
for obnoxious "drunks" in the crowd.
These self-appointed cheer leaders
-and sometimes recruits for one of
the teams-are removed from the
Stadium by the officers and refused
readmittance. Until today, none of
the "drunks" have been in a con-
dition that necessitated taking them
to the police station.
