Coeds Control
Women Are Doing a
Good Piece of 'work'
Twenty-six University coeds, at the
controls of Ann Arbor's share-your-
ride program, are doing "a splendid
piece of work," according to William
Strickland, local administrator of the
War Transportation Board.
Pairing applications of Bomber
Plant workers for a partner to ride
to work, the coc-ds combine efficiency
with good "appeal to the public,"
Strickland said.
They work staggered shifts at the
City Hall to make effective Ann Ar-
bor's ride-swapping program under
the Office of Civilian Defense.
Transportation workers were se-
lected from over 1,000 women who've
signed up so far at the Michigan
League's Women's War Council. The
CDVO anticipates using more and
more University women for public
jobs around Ann Arbor, officials in-

Be Out Tuesday
The issue date of the Michigan
Technic's big December edition is the
question that's haunting engineers
and laymen alike these days as a
cloud of secrecy envelopes the Tech-
nic office.
Though it is rumored that the great
engineering magazine will be on the
stands next Tuesday close-mouthed
executives are maintaining poker
faces all over the place.
Heading the list of 5 feature stories
are Alice C. Goff's "Women in Sci-
ence" and a timely article on the
types and processes of synthetic rub-
ber, contributed by Don O'Neill, '43E.
"Electro-Chemical Industries" by
Paul Kennedy, '44E, "Glass" by E.
Aiken, and R. G. Freeman's discus-
sion of the economic aspects of his
field, "Production Engineering," com-

Garg Features
War Actimities
.Alan of Beauty'
Stars Local Talent
1942 may find the campus queen
of yesterday donned in factory slacks
and tailored uniforms, but if you
think feminine beauty has gone for
the duration, the December Gargoyle
which appears Tuesday will set you
Garg scouts have found local tal-
ent to fill a three-page "Album of
Beauty," with top place given to this
month's cover girl-a Nurses' Aide.
Photos of other phases of campus
life will highlight this issue of the
Garg-with war activities predom-
inating. Commandos training in the
ROTC units, weary workers picking
sugar beets at Sandusky for the
Manpower Corps and blue-uniformed
coeds aiding hospitals are all pic-
tured. The lighter note of college
sports breaks through with a "Sta-
dium Review" showing the best foot-
ball shots of the year.

A meat company employe cuts up the first shipment of horse meat
to arrive in Boston, Mass., for human consumption to augment dimin-
ishing supplies of beef. The meat, which bears federal inspection stamps,
came from Topeka, Kan. Campus eateries will probably soon be fea-
turing this new delicacy.

Meat Rationing Just Around the
Corner, WPI3 Officials Warn
~4 _____________

Seniors and
Sept. '43 Graduates,
If you cannot arrange a senior Picture
appointment. The Ensian has arranged
it so you can have your picture made
at home, during Christmas vacation.
Come up to the Ensian office tomorrow
for the special $1.5 0 coupon giving of-
ficial specifications.
See story in today's Daily.

Meat rationing is right around the
corner, the War Production Board
has decided, and scrapple, tripe,
souse, pigs' feet-and horse flesh-
soon are to come into their own on
student menus.
These rarely-served viands are
"meat sundries" which will partly re-
place such old reliables as steak, roast
beef, pork chops, once meat ration-
ing really gets rolling.
Even though United States meat
production this year is highest in
history, there won't be enough to
meet avid demands from American
fighting men at home and abroad,
hungry allies, and civilians, too, sup-
ply experts have stated.
Share Your Meat Campaign
It's the civilians who are asked
to join in a nation-wide "share your
meat" campaign while the War Pro-
duction Board maps out a big-scale
rationing program.
A fair share of meat for an able-
bodied person over twelve years old
is 2% pounds per week, the govern-
ment has suggested. And that in-
cludes meals eaten at home, at some-
body else's homes or at restaurants.
The rationing will crack down on
hamburger, pork, beef, veal, lamb
and mutton carcasses, sausage and
canned meats made from any of the
above, the government has announced
in preparing its ration plans.
Voluntary Rationing Program
2,500 dormitory students already
are subscribing to the 21/2-pound
limit per week preluding general ra-
tioning, according to Miss Kathleen
Hamm, University dietitian. The Uni-
versity has been limited to about
16% of its meat quota of a year ago,
she indicated. Pork, down 25%, has
been checked most of all.
The voluntary rationing program
should limit the student's 10 p.m.
Hootkins Gives
Talk in Spanish
States Clear Idea of
Democratic Mexico
"The majority of us are not doing
our part in cementing the much-
needed friendship between Mexicans
and ourselves," Dr. Hirsch E. Hoot-
kins of the Romance Language de-
partment said in a Spanish lecture
Dr. Hootkins, who gave a clear
idea of the Mexican views of demo-
cracy during a six-month stay in
Mexico last summer, stated that if
we wish to be true allies of the Mexi-
can people we must learn to appre-
ciate and comprehend their concep-
tion of democratic ideals.
"The Mexicans have a more realis-
tic feeling for democracy than we
do in this country because they are
still fighting constantly for it, where-
as we gained our democratic freedom
years ago and now take it for
granted," he said. "For this same
ren their annreciation of the im-

hamburger, Miss Hamm warned.
Such after-supper tidbits will figure
into that 21/2-pound ration, she said,
and it's just as important to cut
down consumption then as at dinner.
The Food Requirements Committee
of the War Production Board, which
made the survey of civilian meat de-
mands, estimates it will take several
months for adequate ration machin-
ery to be set up.
