shakes Head
At Blind Dates
We're afraid it's true. The majority
of Michigan coeds shake their heads'
ruefully at the very mention of a
blind date. Dozens of women were
interviewed and the general opinion
of all was that .as one ex-blind dater
put it. "The Blind Date System isn't'
a system, it's a trial."
Michigan women were timid reti-
cent creatures, we decided, and would
have to be coaxed to give their opin-
ion freely. But the reply of every
"timid creature" we asked was a loud
Ignorance Is Bliss
We even thought we had a favor-
able answer, once. Kit Upson, '43,
was asked how she reacted to blinds,
and she enthusiastically replied,
"Fine." Ah, we thought, at last a
girl who sees the sterling qualities
of the system. "How many blind dates
have you had at Michigan?" we pur-
sued. "Oh, none," she said cheerfully.
"I go steady."
There are, however. some reveal-
ing answers which fall into three dis-
tinct categories. The first, or Hope-
ful Crusading Type has as one of its
adherents, Bertha Pines, '43, whose
sentiments are that, "On a big campus
like Michigan, it's the best system de-
vised so far to help people meet one
Margery Shores, '42, belongs to the
second, or the Oh-Well-I'm-Only-
Losing -Three -Or -Four ,- Hours-It-
Might-Not-Be-Too-Bad-Type. She re-
marked that, "All you can do is hope
for the best; you can't expect it."
Blind Dates Embitter

Sleigh Taxi Service
To Be Novel Feature
Of Winter Carnival
Long waiting for the Winter Carn-
ival will have its compensation in
one novelty feature which is the
sleigh taxi service, to be operated
between the town and the Arboretum
on the day of the outdoor events, ac-
cording to Ed Holmberg, '43, who is
in charge.
Cutters and bobsled will be avail-
able to anyone desiring transporta-
tion to Carnival Hill in the Arbore-
tum, for a small charge. Those in-
terested should get in touch with the
Union when the day of the events is
announced. This will be the firstb
afternoon during the week, or on a
week-end, that snow conditions are
satisfactory, after final examinations
are over. There is a possibility that
the Carnival will be held on J-Hop
week-end. All groups entering the
contests will be notified one day in
all right if neither of you can see,"
replied one. Another smiled sourly
and said, "Oh, I like blind dates-
as long as they're not lame, too."

Basketball Tourney
Nears Completion
Alpha Delta Pi beat Collegiate So-
rosis in the A tournament basketball
finals, to take its place opposite the
winner of the Martha Cook-Mosher
II tilt in the complete tournament
final at the beginning of the new

ament finals was assured after its
win over Alpha Gamma Delta, 25-
15, while Mosher II reached the B

Managers To Meet
House athletic managers will meet
with Donelda Schaible,'42, intramur-
al manger of the Women's Athletic
Association, to discuss plans for the
new sports season at 4:30 p.m. Mon-
day, February 17, at the Women's
Athletic Building.

Scarcely a newspaper today with
any pretensions of foreign news cov-
erage lets an issue go to press without
some sort of feature on "a cross-sec-
tion of English life during war time."
The Mite subm ts her own cross-sec-
tion, the material for which is garn-
ered not from letters, nor from per-
sonal contacts. but from a few of
the advertisements which appeared
recently in the personal columns of
two London dailies, The .Daily Tele-
graph and Morning Post, and The
Times. They' run as follows:
Lovlier Waves and Safer, too-
that's what Othermo means to you.
An Othermo wave leaves you free
to move from cubicle to shelter at
will-no wires or electricity to tie
you to your chair.

ly give medium powered car suitable

ernor's St. Bartholomew's Hospital.
