Survey Discloses Dad Must Pay
More To Keep Son At School



(Editor's Note: Having been told
that the cost of living was going up,
and realizing that college students
above all are interested in the econ-
omy of things. (not Economics 51), a
Daily reporter has conducted an un-
scientific survey on the cost of going
to college.)
Either father will have tq dig down
deeper into his pockets or Junior's
going to have to tighten up his belt
another notch.
At least that's the way things ap-
peared to me after conversing with
some of the merchants on State
The cost of going to college has
gone up considerably, and the main
reason is the increase )n food costs.
Beanerles Raise Prices
Most of the local beaneries have
raised prices. What was once a'5-
cent meal now sells for 40 cents. In
one place all 10-cent sandwiches
have been hiked up. to 12 cents, and
all 12-cent sandwiches up to 15 cents.
Some places are charging extra
for toasting, milk is six instead of
five cents in many restaurants.
Sweet rolls and doughnuts, the pro-
verbial pre-eight o'clock breakfast,
have gone up one or two cents.
The , cost of living in dormitories
hasn't gone up-yet. But in some
house meetings the residents have
Mobs Jam Doors
Of Union In Rush,
On Football Days
When Ann 'Arbor trebles its popu-
lation for three or four hours on foot-
ball Saturdays the Michigan Union
really plays the big time.
Several thousand people crowd the
dining room, the two cafeterias and
special dining rooms between noon
and 8 p.m. and every other Union
facility from the barber shop to the
bowling alley does a land-office busi-
And while the Union staff headed
by Acting Manager William kuenzel
caters to the thousands of visitors
who want to eat, sleep, swim, or find
their lost brothers and sisters, the
undergraduate staff buzzes around
putting the collegiate touches on
Ann. Arbor.
Jim Edmunds, '43, and his staff
of 10 sophomores schedule and ex-
epute the mass card displays at the
stadium, Bob Burtstein, '43, manages
the. ticket resale and Blaine Kelsey,
'45, schedules bus, train and air pas-
sages for Ann Arbor's visitors from
the Union travel desk.
At night the Union services con-
tinue with the weekend ballroom
dances for students and alumni alike,
and by midnight the bellhops are
busy setting up cot dormitories in
large bedrooms to accommodate the
many out-of-towners who somehow
just don't get back to their homes in
Detroit, Toledo or Big Rapids by the
time it comes to be in those places.

been given pep talks about not tak-
ing more than they can eat, econo-
mizing on food and eating all they
have on their plates.
A few fraternities and sororities
have raised house bills, though the
increase is apparently very slight. In
many houses the extra cost has not
been added to students' board bills,
but absorbed in surplus formerly used
or house improvements, etc.
Books as yet have not gone up in
price, though some State Street book
merchants anticipate. slight price
rises in the future. Note and type-
writing paper has gone up a little.
Paper that formerly sold for 75 cents
a ream now goes for 80 cents.
Engineers Have Trouble
Engineers are having troubles lit
students don't realize. Slide rules
are virtually non-existent, though
manufacturers will rent instruments
to students for a dollar until new
ones are available.
Drawing instruments, at, least
those whi#i booksellers had on hand,
have not gone up. Most of these are
made in Germany, though, and one
merchant explained that some stu-
dents refuse to buy them because of
the imprint: "Made in Germnany."
Any domestic instruments that' come
in in the future will cost more than
the foreign ones now on hand, he
Private rooming houses have gone
up slightly in room rent.
All of which, they told me on State
Street, means one thing: prices will
continue to shoot up gradually, and
eventually wages paid students will
go up. Wages, they say, always fol-
lowing prices in increases.
Anyway, cokes are still a nickel.
Or they were yesterday.

Here Is Today's News
In Summary
Both the police department and
the city prosecutor continued their
investigation of the accident Wednes-
day which took the life of Eno
George, 44, as he attempted to cross
Main Street during the noon rush
Statements were taken by the
prosecutor from Mrs. Verndh Mag-
nuson, driver of the car, and several
witnesses were also questioned by city
authorities. Coroner Edwin C. Ganz-
horn said that he had not decided
yet whether he would order an in-
quest held.

City firemen were routed hur-
riedly out of their fire house
Thursday night in response to a
call that a downtown stpre was
filled with smoke.
The fire chief's car, two pump-
ing trucks, a service truck, and the
aerial ladder truck raced to the
scene of the alarm, only to dis-
cover that not only was there no
fire on the premises, but that the
"smoke" was fly spray being blown
through the store to rid it of the
annoying insects.
Ann Arbor Lions Club members
realized more than $1,700 from their
annual dance to aid needy school
children secure glasses or receive
other optical treatment.
Begun in 1929, the yearly affair
was held in the Intramural Build-
ing recently, and the profits will aid
underprivileged children throughout
the county in getting a better educa-
tion through better eyesight.
