recess near his front door station.
and when my eyes became accustom-
ad the darkness. I saw that he wore
a dark blue uniform and cap. I knew,
it was George the doorman, and wait-
ed. feeling peculiar and a little silly r
in front of the many men hurrying in
and cut of the doors.
"You know better than this," he!
-aid quietly, and then I felt worse.
'This isn't allowed, you know that."
And still quietly, but very firmly he
pointed to the door, and indicated thet
side entrance. He said, "Thank you",
and I left, and joined Grady at the
aide entrance for the rest of thet
George Is Woman Watcher
George may have a last name. but
he doesn't really need it; everyone
has known him by the first for 17
years now. He came to the Union
about ten years after it was establish-
ed, and ever since then his sole occu-
pation has been watching for women.
It may be considered a very ideal oc-
cupation by the greener element on
"ampus, but it's given George a few
;ray hairs.
The situation. ,stayed very well in
hand until a year ago last spring
when the walk to the side entrance
was blocked during the construction
of the new dormitories. All that spring
the rule had to be lifted. And when
it came time for the women to go
back to the side entrance, even the
'eautiful new walk wasn't inducement
enough to persuade them to give up
their newly found status on a par
with the men.
Back to Tradition
But this September the Executive
council of the Union decided that it
simply couldn't go on-that it was
oractically a slap in the face to
Michigan tradition and to everyone
who had ever' been a Michigan man.
That George is doing his job con-
,cientiously was proved once and for
311 by yesterday's episode. Unless
Grady tipped him off. George has
more than his share of females to
:ontend with, it would seem. Most of
them are quite nice about going
around to the side entrance when
asked to do so, he says. Personally,
I wouldn't think it was a question
jf niceness at all, but of being just
,lain scared.
Two Types Try Door
There are two types of women who
:ry to walk in the front door of the
Jnion. One is the freshman, who
loesn't know any better, and there-
Iore can be forgiven. But the other
does it on a dare, or just to be per-
verse, or just to tell her friends,
preferably men, afterward. And she
is darkly frowned on by all con-
The only time this rule is suspend-
d are during conventions, and once
a year for the Union Open House.
But that's all over for this year. Off
he record, George has beeh known to
took tactfully the other way if some-
one is desperately tearing for a bus,
per suitcase flying open and her hat
hanging over one ear.
And, oh please, this isn't a chal-
.enge to the freshmen. IDefinitely not.
