Measly 2% of Coeds
Can 'Get Their Men'

Various World

Results from a recent canvas of
the campus revealed that two per
cent of the female set has been wed-
ded to service men in the last year.
In comparison to other schools this
percentage is perplexingly low.
To get an explanation for this phe-
nomenon, a couple of men and women
students were asked to explain.
The men had this to say:
"Women just haven't been trying,"
Russell Williamson, '43, said.
"Maybe they're marrying oberleut-
nants," John Williams, '45, said. a
Women's explanations were:
"That four-out-of-five slogan ap-
plies to the men," Jeanette Raymond,
'45, declared.
"Michigan women are just level-
headed, that's all. Incidentally, #'m.
going to be married soon." Lyn Geb-
hard, '43, said.
Answer to this question remains
as high in the air as before and as
high as it will ever remain, for just
exactly why women, outnumbered 2
to 1 on the Michigan -campus, don't
collar their men will apparently be
forever shrouded in mystery.
At least until some changes are.
Police Protest
Too Many E's,
The police station is beginning to
think you can carry this E-for-
Victory idea a little too far.
Thick white E's are being put on
everything-telephone trucks, .gas
trucks, garbage trucks, kiddie fire-
wagons and in fact on just about
everything that moves.
Officially, these E's are doled out
by City Defense Czar Sherman H.
Mortenson to those vehicles that
must travel in the dark during black-
outs. Unofficially, it doesn't matter
what kind of vehicles are plastered,
with E's--and that's just the trou-

Corey Voices Hope
for Universal Utopia
When War Is Over
We can make ourselves a world
where poverty is non-existent and
individual welfare exceeds every-
body's wildest dreams of Utopia, Prof.
Louis Corey of Antioch College de-
clared yesterday at a Post-War Con-
ference panel discussion.
New machines and materials be-
coming available to man will revolu-
tionize our entire economic system,
Prof. Corey said.
At a second panel on "America's
Role in the Post-War World," con-
troversy raged around the relative
importance of and possible effects of
"putting our own house in order first"
vs. "wholehearted international co-
operatin." Prof. James Cissel held
that our first responsibility is to our-
selves. Prof. Harold Dorr set forth
his conviction that "America's future
depends not only on the amount but
also the spirit in which we accept our
post-war responsibilities."
Agreeing that our psychological
attitude is the greatest barrier to the
success of any international organi-
zation, Prof. Mentor Williams and
Prof. Preston Slosson also reached
agreement as to the necessity of some
such sort of organization if we are
to avoid a third world conflict in their
discussion of "Can We Establish In-
Prof. Williams warned that we can-
not have internationalism unless we
can generate a proper attitude to-
wards the rest of the world.

Rule Shelvung
House Parties
Is Unpopular
(Continued from Page 1)
should be curtailed, but argued that
these could be cut down without
eliminating the parties altogether.
The question was asked: Do you
think it is necessary to ban house par-
ties for the duration? *
Judy Fletcher, senior lit student,
said: "Just because there's a war
there isn't one silly reason to elimin-
ate fun entirely."
Lee Robinson, '45A, a member of
Pi Beta Phi, said: "They shouldn't
have the parties unless all expenses
are cut to a minimum. It's too bad
they don't find a way to do this."
Bud Burgess, junior engine student
and member of Theta Delta Chi, said:
"What does the Student Affairs Com-
mittee expect to gain by it? The USO
helps soldiers spend their free time
and we need something to break the
monotony as well."
A few students sided with the com-
mittee's action. G e o r g i ana Root,
sophomore lit student and Kappa
Kappa Gamma member, said: "The
ban's immaterial to me. House par-
ties are fun but they're not an abso-
lute necessity, especially if they inter-
fere with the campus' war effort."
Ben Douglas, 'Ensian business
manager and member of Phi Gamma
Delta, was another who refused to
join the ranks of the dissenters when.
he pointed out: "Eliminating house
parties is a swell idea. They cost
more than they're worth and the
housing situation is bad enough as
it is."
However, Fred Ginsberg, Daily as-
sociate business manager, spoke with
conviction. "Fraternities have been
responsible to a great extent for the
success of the campus war effort.
House parties don't conflict with the
war, so why should we sit like nuns in
a cloister all of a sudden?" .
. Of 19 fraternities and sororities
contacted, only one sorority favored
the ban. This was Alpha Delta Phi.
Theta Chi merely shrugged its col-
lective shoulders and its president
said: "It's immaterial to us."
The houses declaring themselves
opposed to the ban were: Delta Gam-
ma, Delta Delta Delta, Gamma Phi
Beta Kappa Delta, Beta -Theta Pi,
Sigma Phi Epsilon, Sigma Chi, Alpha
Ta'u Omega, Delta Tau Delta, Chi Phi,
Phi Kappa Psi, Pi Lambda Phi, Sigma
Nu, Phi Gamma Delta and Sigma Phi.

Campus blood officials reported
last night thap the last day's regis-
tration figures brought the total reg-
istration for the current blood bank
to 200 persons, filling the quota.

to Alan Brandt, '44, chairman, with-
out delay.

Initiation Rules
Are Clarified'
The fraternities on campus had
better contact their national organi-
zation and find out their national
rulings on the initiation of new men,
John Fauver, IFC president, warned
yesterday when explaining the new
initiation and pledging rules.
Fauver also disclosed that since the
Student Affairs Committee let down
the bars on fraternity pledging and
initiation the Interfraternity Council
has been swamped with questionsl
about the new rulings.
In explaining the new rules Fauver
emphasized that transfer students,
pledged this semester, and having at
least one semester's credit, are eligible
for initiation. First semester engi-
neers, he said, without recQrds of D
