By A. P. BLAUSTEIN
Back in 1934 an employe of the
mechanical engineering shop, W. E.
Hawhorn, procured a tin cup, a tin
funnel and two tin spoons with which
he proceeded to make the now fam-
ous Spoofuncup, one of the most
coveted honors that can be won by
a member of the engineering faculty.
Tuesday night the trophy will be
awarded for the seventh time to the
most "popular-unpopular" professor
of 1940 at a dinner of the American
Society of Mechanical Engineers at
6:30 p.m. in the League.
The idea of presenting such an
award was first conceived by L. V.
Colwell of the metal processing de-
partment who at that time was a
member of the A.S.M.E. The first
winner was John Grennan also of
the metal processing department who,
it is said, really earned the title of
"Man Who Can Take It" at the 1934
banquet.
Four of the former winners have
been asked to serve as judges for this
year's contest, Grennan, Prof. Walter
E. Lay of the automotive engineering
department, Prof. Axel Marin of the
mechanical engineering department
and Prof. Henry L. Kohler of the
automotive engineering department.
The otier two recipients of the "lov-
ing cup" are the late Dean Henry C.
Anderson and the late Prof. J. E.
Emswiler of the mechanical engin-
eering department.
In actual construction the Spoo-
funcup is a very simple object con-
sisting merely of a funnel welded in
a vertical position on an inverted cup
flanked by two tin spoons. From its

various parts the trophy received its
present name.
Elaborate plans have been made by
the student members of the A.S.M.E.
to really run their profs "through
the mill" on Tuesday. "This is our
one chance a year to get back at them
(the faculty) ", one engineer said.
"and we're going to make the most
of it."
The unlucky six who will be put
through their paces by Ann Arbor's
mayor, Prof. Walter C. Sadler, of
the transportation engineering de-
partment, are as follows:
Prof. John A. Van den Brek of
the engineering mechanics depart-
ment, Prof. A. H. White of the chem-
ical engineering department, Prof.
Ben Dushnik of the mathematics
department, Prof. John M. Nickelsen
of the. mechanical engineering de-
partment, Prof. Lewis N. Holland of
the electrical engineering department
and William F. Bone of the metal
processing department.
Rest, Care Are
Very Necessary
To Evade Colds
With snow on the ground and a
slushy thaw on the way, all minor
illnesses-yes, colds-should be at-
tended to with more than usual cau-
tion, Dr. Warren D. Forsythe, direc-
tor of health service, warned yes-
terday.
A sniffle and chill may develop in-
to influenza or pneumonia within a
few days, Dr Forsythe said.
Suggested treatment is warm, dry
clothing and plenty of sleep, even for
those who feel themselves to be in
perfect health. When the first in-
dications of a cold appear, he said,
the victim should put himself to bed
and stay there for as long as he can,
drink fruit juices, avoid starchy
foods to keep the bowels open.
br. Forsythe mentioned reports of
a minor influenza epidemic in Calif-
ornia. There does not appear to be
any danger of that epidemic spread-
ing as far eastward as Ann Arbor,
he said, but the epidemic does bring
to mind that influenza comes without
any warning.
He indicated that there has been
no appreciable increase in the num-
ber of colds reported to health ser-
vice within the past days and re-
peated his warning that no cold is
too minor to deserve attention.
