The War Department announced
last night it had awarded a $10,298,-
128 truck contract to the Fargo Mo-
tor Corporation of Detroit rather
than to Ford, whose bid was $250,-
000 lower. Officials said this was done
because the Ford Company had tak-
en exception to a provision which had
been included in all of the Depart-
ment's invitations for bids since No-
vember 17. That provision stated that
the bids must be subject to a circular
signed by General George C. Mar-
shall, Chief of Staff, saying that all

obviously going to obey all the laws
but that "arbitrary inclusion" of the
controversial clause could give the
government the power to cancel the
contract and bring suit.

J-Hop Edition
Will Glamorize

Final Examination Schedule
First Semester, 1940-41



No use going to the dance if you
don't get an edition of the Daily's
J-Hop extra. You'll miss all the
fun, all the pictures and chuckles
the other half of your party won't
be able to give you.
So the editors say.
It was with a good deal of scorn
that they revealed not so long ago
the theme of the extra - glorifying
the male. Copy for the edition,
which has been so hard to get from
the Daily staff members in the past
years, has been pouring in, they say.
They attribute this to the obvious-
ness of the subject around which the
paper will be built.
"Anyone with half an ounce of
sense can turn out page after page
of copy on ,the superiority of the male
over the other sex," they sneer. Their
only trouble, they admit, is restrain-
ing the viciousness of the staff. They
want to tell too much of the truth,
they say. And that, even if this is
a newspaper, couldn't be done. Not
on this theme.
The J-Hop extra will be put out
in two editions, one to be distributed
on St. Valentine's Eve, the first night
of the J-Hop, and one to appear on
the streets on Saturday morning.
The Saturday morning edition will
sell for ten cents. Anyone who wishes
to assure himself of a copy is asked
by the business staff to mail a reser-
vation to The Daily as soon as pos-
Among the features in the edition,
the editors revealed, will be a large
center spread on the three bands
appearing at the two J-Hop dances.
Other features will include a com-
plete list of those who attend the
dance and those who participated in
the preparation.

"Going to be in an upper berth?
Don't forget to bring a three-foot

los is a Phi Beta Kappa, a history
major, a second violinist, and a wack.
By his own estimate, he can swing
on his violin hot enough to keep up
with any of the Minneapolis Sym-
phony when they hit their jam ses-
sions late at night.
Being wacks, all of them, they wore
slightly peculiar garb after they were
turned loose from Hill Auditorium.
Two remained in formal dress, one
had on grey trousers, a brown sweat-
er, green coat, formal tie, and a black
hat. He also carried a pair of trous-
Perhaps any peculiarities can be
explained by the fact that these men
are as a whole a much younger lot
than the average symphony orches-
tra. This was a specific aim of the
fabulous Mitropoulos, who conducts,
even during rehearsals, without the
aid of a score.
Perhaps sheer exuberance accounts
for Ginopoulos' performance on State
street Tuesday. With a glad yip at
seeing a friend, he turned to cross
the street to join him, and tripped
head first into a snowbank. Into
something, anyhow.

utility to those graduate schools
which are faced with an increasing
problem of selection and classifica-
tion to students, Dr. Woodburne ex-
plained. The basic question really,
he pointed out, is the never-ending
inquiry into methods of improving
the evaluation of students by means
of academic records.
According to Dr. Woodburne, ex-
perience with the tests in the past
has indicated that the kind of evi-
dence which they supply can be of
substantial use to graduate faculties.
