turn up with a one-suit hand.
If Christopher Columbus had be-
gun playing in his earlier years at
the above rate, he would be due for
a perfedt hand any day now. And
to get a perfect hand in a particular
suit would require 1920 years.
However, Professor Carver said
that perfect shuffling is a rarity, and
at the above rate of play with the
imperfect way that most people shuf-
fle, a one-suit hand would take ap-
proximately 2000 years to turn up.
Thus Julius Caesar would be expect-
ing something good within a few
years--if he hadn't been assassinated.
Professor Carver admits that he l
once saw a perfect hand turn up, but
only because he switched decks.

To Talk Today
Youth Leader To Lecture
To Karl Marx Society
Henry Winston, outstanding na-
tional negro youth leader, will speak
on "One War, One Enemy, One Issue,"1
at 8 p.m. today in Room D, Haven
Winston, who has attained fame
as a champion -of Negro rights, be-
came known through his work early
in the campaign to free the Scotts-
bo'ro boys. a
In the lecture, to be sponsored by
the Karl Marx Society, Winston will
draw his material from his family
background of Mississippi slave life,
and from his nummerous campaigns
for the maintenance of civil liberties.
In addition to his activities on be-
half of the American negro, Winston
has become administrative secretary
of the Young Communist League. He
is author of many popular pamphlets,
the most famous of which is, "The
Scourge of Jim Crowism."

It took the Class of '45 to break the
time-worn coed habit of keeping
dates waiting, so the story goes . .
One of the newer male residents on
campus, chafing at his date's extreme
tardiness in presenting herself to be
admired on the ground floor of one
of the dorms, took matters into his
own hands the other night, hopped
into an elevator and went up to the
fourth floor to investigate.
He singled out the room of inter-
est, marched in without so much as
knocking and was greeted with a
shriek that resounded through the
corridor: "What-Are-You-Doing-In-
Here?" Came the answer from the
intruder, "Well. I rang and I rang
and I rang for you, but you didn't
come down. So I just came up to see
what the trouble was!"
Moral of the story: Never keep
your date waiting-too long.
Michigan students drowned out
their sorrows in drink after the team

urday . . . The West Quad held its
usual Coffee Hour and the usual

Alumnae Houses entertained home-

Newberry varied the procedure by
offering music to soothe the Michi-
gan sole . . . It was a tea dance that
done it.
