Women's Closing Hour

To Be

12:30 A.M. Friday, Saturday


Elements Never
Bother Mystery
Man Of U Hall
"Eight-below" mornings, driving
snow, rain and wind-none of these
elements with which Ann Arbor has
been blessed during the past month
has daunted the patient, little man
who stands watch in the parking
space outside of University Hall. At
*any hour of the day he can be found
either directing cars into empty
spaces or standing on the steps near
the north door-just why he stands
in that, particular place has been a
campus mystery but has been ac-
cepted unquestioningly as have most
of the college traditions.
Elmer Fritz, a University police-
man, is a native of Ann Arbor and,
until this October when he acccepted
his present job, ran a grocery store in
the third ward. When questioned as
to exactly what a ward is, Mr. Fritz
proceeded to explain that Ann Arbor
is divided into eight districts or wards,
each of which is headed by two alder-
men. The town was divided this way

in order to facilitate voting and also
the public school system.
Mr. Fritz Indispensible
His main tasks consist of examin-
ing all cars coming into the parking
space for a small green tag placed
above the license plate which is is-
sued to faculty members and deans
almost exclusively. No car can park
in the University Hall parking space
unless it displays this tag. Then, too,
the lot is small and Mr. Fritz is in-
dispensible in keeping the constantly
shifting traffic in line.
--As to why he stands on the
fourthstep just inside the door, that's
easy. From there he can keep a vigi-
lant eye through the window of the
door, on every care that invades his
domain and can quickly arrive on
the scene if his help is needed.
Will Be Promoted
"I've never had any trouble as long
as I've been here and every one seems
to me to be very friendly," said Mr.
Fritz when queried as to how he liked
his job. His friendly blue eyes crink-
led as.he revealed the next. "I'm not
going to be here very long-I've been
promoted to the mail department of
the.University. They thought I did
such a good job during the cold seige
awhile back that they want me 'in-
side.' I didn't do much," he contin-
ued modestly, "but it was a tough
fight during those cold days. I prayed
to God to help me and He certainly
Mr. Fritz will be leaving his al-
ready-traditional post in a short time
but his friendly "hello" and untiring
service will remain well appreciated
by all.

Crisp, emphatic white details char-
acterize spring head-liners. A cer
tain eye-catcher is this pre-season
dress of navy blue paper taffeta which
is quite perfect for the- first after-
exam blow-out and spring wear.
The top is sheath-like, the better
to set off the billowy skirt which falls
from the torso length waist. 'W'hite
lace peeps forth as the skirt is
swished about in dancing and im-
maculate white elbow length gloves
complete the picture.

quire dyes, his year,, perhaps more
than any other, pastels will dominate
the scene rather than traditional
spring black. Pastels, combined with

waist dresses, will bring ,forth appeal-
ing styles this season.
Lemon yellow is predicted for the
color sensation and a particularly
attractive dress of this color employs
bigger and better ruffles plus side
draping for a wrap around frock of
rayon crepe.

hours were "an unwarranted inter-
ference with the student's private
life, and the savings in electricity,
heat and human resources are non-
existent or negligible."
The "kiss the boys goodnight at
12:30 plan" has been "thoroughly
considered by the Dean of Students,
the Dean of Women, the Interfra-
ternity Council and the Undergradu-
ate Council of the League," the re- i
port stated.
Emphasizing the need to bring the
t war home to the students, the Re-
port said : "Students must realize
that the nation is at war, and coop-
eration with the national program
of physical fitness is necessary."
The following is the official
League Council ruling:
"As a war-time measure, weekend
closing hours for undergraduate wo-
men have been changed on Friday
and on Saturday nights until twelve-
.The measure has been approved
by the Office of the Dean of Women
and is sponsored by the Undergrad-
uate Council in cooperation with the
Women's Defense Committtee.
"Action is being taken at this time
because the Undegraduate Council
believes physical fitness is a part of
the national defense.
"This was brought to mind when
the Defense Committee advertised
for blood donors. Of the 120 women
who signed, 48 out of the first 50
were not considered physically fit to
donate blood.
"Also most students are probably
aware that the University Health
Service has been overcrowded with
run-down students whose illnesses
are partially due to the lack of suf-
ficient sleep. For these reasons and
also because of the intensified pro-
gram on campus made necessary, by
the national war it is believed that
immediate health measures must be
"The matter of closing hours has
been thoroughly considered by the
Dean of Students, the Dean of Wo-
men, the Tnterfraternity Council,
the Undergraduate Council of the
Women's eague and is believed essen-
"Students must realize that the
nation is at war, and cooperation
with the national program of physi-
cal fitness is necessary.
"Students are also urged, at this
time, to realize the necessity of con-
serving electricity. Unless this is
done, the electrical power used by
the University may be rationed.
"Closing hours at 22:30 am. (Fri-
day night) and 12:80 a.m. (Saturday
night) for all undergraduate women
will be effective from Feb. 20th on.
Functions held in the women's
League, the men's Union, in all
houses and all dormitories will hence-
forth end at 12 midnight.
