'M' Students
Place Police
In Dilemma
Blue-Coats Register Plea
Asking That Activities
'Be Toned Down'
It was a close contest at police
headquarters last night as police at-
tempted'to decide to whom the title,
"public nuisance No. 1 in Ann Arbor"
should be attached, to mad dogs or
to equally mad students.
Almost every other complaint that
is made either involves a dog who
is supposedly foaming at the mouth
or students playing ball in the streets,
breaking windows and causing other
public disturbances.
As a last resort the police depart-
ment has pleaded with The Daily to
ask ball playing students to refrain
from playing in the streets. Ferry
Field and the various parks through-
out the city are suggested for all
Yesterday a complaint was filed
with police that some students on
White Street were making an unusu-
ally loud "racket." A squad car hur-
ried to the scene and found it was a
fraternity initiation. New pledges
were being dragged from their room-
ing houses and cooled off under a
garden hose. Police did not stop
the ceremony but asked the boys to
tune it down a little.
John Troppi, of Battle Creek, who
has been confined in University Hos-
pital for the past two weeks was re-
leased yesterday to find that the
tire shortage situation has become ,a
pretty serious affair.
When he had been admitted into
the hospital two weeks ago, Troppi
had parked his car in the Hospital
parking lot. Yesterday he found
that someone had not only removed
his tires and wheels, but had also
taken his hub caps and log nuts.
What makes him angry is that the
thief did not even leave the car
jacked up.

Michigan Bell's telephone lines are carrying a heavier
"load" than ever before . . . about 5,000,000 local
calls and more than 80,000 long distance calls A DAY!
Much of that "traffic" consists of calls placed by gov-
ernment, the armed forces, and war industries. Those
calls are vital and must not be delayed!
You can help assure that important messages go
through if you keep your telephone conversations short
and if you do not make unnecessary calls during the
busiest hours . . . 10 a.m. to 12, and 2 to 4 p.m. Even
though your line may not be needed for war use, a
