Union's Travel Board
Tells How To Get There
"Today's announcement that there
are but nine more shopping days un-
til vacation behooves everyone who
intends to frequent the family hearth
this Chritsmas to hurry up over to the
Union Travel board and shop for a
ride," declared Robert Sibley, '42,
yesterday, announcing the Travel
Board's existence once again for the
mutual benefit of those who have or
wish transportation.

Pat Hoeper, '42, who plays the
"Take A Number" conception of the

this sorority in the opera, were invited
yesterday to dine with women they
are about to satirize in the Mimes
The hostess sorority, it seems, re-
ceived notorious publicity last year
because of their alleged statemient
that they preferred Yale undergrad-
uates to University men here. And
so, in order to see whether or not
Hoeper typified their preference,
Dunshee and he gritted their teeth
and put themselves on display. The
consensus of Alph Phi opinion this
year, however, voiced by their -presi-
dent Jeanne Kaufmann, '41, was that
"the only reason we approve of the
opera's mythical Yale man is his
resemblance to Michigan men-and,
we 'like THEM."sr

repercussions of that misunderstand-

punch line of an old sorority song
that finishes with-"They call us

The point is, the Alpha Phi's want
Michigan respect and don't give a
hang about the reaction of Yale.
Dunshee, they announced, after
carefully looking him over, was cer-
tainly their idea of a true Alpha Phi.
Dunshee politely refused the initia-
tion they offered, however, and both
Dunshee and Hoeper left the sorority
house feeling slightly guilty about the
ribbing that the Alph Phi's are going
to take in "Take A Numfer"-for
the girls are all right.
