Gifts meticulously
selected are found
at the Polhemus
hat shop on the
corner of State'
and William. Everything so
carefully chosen that whatever
you select will be right. Many
handsome bags, unusual cos-
tume jewelry from 1.00, Lark-
wood hosiery from 69c, and
colorful linen hankies from 25c.
Don't forget, too, this is the
place to get a hat to wear home
on the train - one that the
family will greet with approval
as you step from the Stident

Note to the ed: If you can't find us, just look underneath the stack of
crumpled copy-paper around the typewriter to the right of the woman's
desk. . we started this thing twenty times and couldn't get a decent lead.
Please don't get mad-all we want to say is that we are very happy that
Christmas is practically here and that we wish we could give all you nice
people that we work with on The Daily staff some real
purty presents, but on account of we only have 27 cents
and no rich uncles, we can't.
Anyhoo, just to show you that we're not fooling and
that we really do love you all, here's what we would give
you if we had the money . . .
To ESTHER OSSER whom we love, and who, inci--
dentally, is our boss, we will give a brand new job on
the New York Times . . . and hope that she will do the
same for us some time . . . also a slightly dog-eared
copy of "Little Caesar" and a special pocket-size bathroom scale so that she
can prove to DON WIRTCHAFTER that she does weigh more than 39
pounds. As for "Wirt the Squirt," we'll just give him Margot Thom ... he's
been hinting around long enough.
It's Grape Wine For The Kernel . .
We stayed up until 9:30 last Saturday night to brew a bottle of our best
home-made grape wine for HERVIE HAUFLER. The Kernel's been ruining
his digestion long enough on that Kentucky corn licker . . . and we finally
found a girl for AL SARASOHN-just like the one from Astoria. But, in
case he doesn't like this present so well, we've
asked the postoffice for an extra mail delivery ,_
each day. G
We tried to find a horse for JAN HIATT, but :
the one we had our eye-and a 25 cents down
payment-on was taken to the glue factory last
week, so we'll just have to give her our favorite
dog, "Thag." Put a saddle on her, Jan, and no
one'll know the difference.
On account of we know what it feels like to go
hungry, we're gonna give HOWIE GOLDMAN a.
free meal to make up for the one he didn't digest '
at The Daily banquet . . . also our vote for the
chairmanship of the Hundredth Anniversary one.
DAN HUYETT, who is really a good guy, will get
a phone call Christmas morning from someone
who did get his copy of The Daily . . . We've lined up a round dozen of Best-
Dressed Coeds for JEANNE CRUMP so that she won't have to comb the
campus each week looking for someone that is not wearing a sweater
and skirt.
Oh,*Those Dimp pes . .
Because we've always been fond-in a sisterly sort of a way-of GERRY
BURN'S dimples, we're going to present him with the snazzy new Lincoln
"Continental" features in the new Erector set No. 7. BOB SPECKHARD
always struck us as being an itsy-bitsy speck above us intellectually, but our
spirit of giving allows no class discrimination so we'll just send him a pack-
age of commas to sprinkle through his stories so us with the lower I.Q.'s can
understand them . . .
SHIRLEY WALLACE gets a bid to the Law Formal, and KARL KESSLER,
who wouldn't turn up his nose at pinch-bottle Scotch, is down on our list
for a keg of beer. AL DANN is a nice guy so we've splurged on his gift.
Wanna guess, Al? It's the city of Ann Arbor,
the Sheriff's office and the police station. Aw,
gwan, don't thank us . . . we couldn't use

A host of gift ideas
is found at the Col-

Black Shoelaces Are Out
According to a communique re-

editor, 'black shoelaces will not be
worn with saddle shoes during the
coming year. "It is quite possible that
brown shoelaces may be worn," the
communique read, "although confi-
dential reports from a reliable au-
thority contend that white will be
the favorite. We will watch with in-
teres the saddle shoes of next year."


Smart Colors, Right
Size Are Essentials
For Stocking Gifts
Silk stockings are a Christmas

right size, and wraps the package

colorful wrapping. Tiny bells, little
Santa Claus heads, gold angels, make

money can be saved by buying sev-

and giving them as separate gifts.
