THE CAUSE for flowing
hair in Ann Arbor may be
found in the fact that
haircut prices were placed
at 75 cents last week by
the City Barbers Associa-
tion . .. Little shavers can
get rid of their excess hair
for 65 cents as long as they
are under 12 years old . .
It is said that "illicit bar-
berships have sprung up in
dim dormitory and frater-
nity rooms-where ama-
teur shears-wielders ruin

wavy pompadours, and the
only password is "I brought
a bowl."

MICHIGAN N a t a t o r s,
favored to win the Big Ten
championship, went down
in an upset to the tune of
66 to 61 to Ohio's mermen.
. . . The Buckeyes sewed up
the championship in the
next-to-last event when
Keo Nakama, Hawaiian
star, swam the 440 free-
style in 4:47.4, nearly five
seconds better than the
listed record of 4:52.1 made
in 1938 by Michigan's Tom
Haynie . . . In the semi-
finals records also fell .. .
Harry Holiday, '45E, Mich-
igan's star natator, broke
the 150-yard NCAA back-
stroke record . . . He sped
to a new mark of 1:31.7,
bettering the old record of
1:34.2 which was set by
Vande Weghe of Princeton
in 1938 . . . Michigan ac-
counted for another brok-
en Big Ten record in the
300-yard medley relay . . .
The Wolverine trio was a
second faster than the
standard set by Ohio in
1939.

THE TWO Michigan
grapplers appearing in the
championship meets won
individual championships
Saturday . . . Dick Kopel
and Manley Johnson led
the Wolverines into second
place with 22 points behind
Indiana with 24 points ...
Kopel won the 121-pound
title by pinning Chicago's
Nicholas Melas in the only
fall in the championship
round . . . Johnson, de-
fending his title, scored in
the 145 division over Rollie

Rayburn of Illinois, driv-
ing to a 3 to 1 decision.

CANVASSERS will go
from house to house in
Ann Arbor this month in
an effort to find new hous-
ing facilities for war work-
ers, the Civilian Defense
Council announced Friday.
... The aim of the survey
will be to: list all available
housing space in the coun-
ty, and induce household-
ers to rent space to war
workers.
IT PAYS to wear a uni-
form in Ann Arbor now ...
Members of the armed for-
ces will now be admitted to
the "Union Membership
Dances for only half price.
... The new step was ap-
proved by a resolution of
the Board of Directors of
the Union Friday when
they voted.

MATERIAL shortages
have knocked down Ann
Arbor's campus "but they
haven't layed it out, a sur-
veyor reported this week.
Fewer eyelash curlers, few-
er razor strops are making
prices higher and goods
harder to find, but substi-.
tutes are minimizing the
impact of war on State
Street sellers.

INTO THE JAWS of the
U.S. armed forces have
gone approximately 10,000
former University students
and 101 faculty men . .
Cold, impersonal files list
43 of these former Michi-
gan men "killed in ser-
vice" and hundreds of ex-
ploits of bravery and cour-
age on the front lines mark
the University records.

way around the world and who was
Latin American correspondent for
Booth Newspapers, will give a movie
lecture, "Wheels over the Andes," at
8:15 p.m. Tuesday in the Lydia Men-
delsshon Theatre.
Friers, who is from Saginaw, Mich.,
first came to the University in 1937
as a student. By the time he gradu-
ated in 1940 he had made trips to
Mexico and Central America, Alaska
and even Europe.
It was in 1939 that his roommate
bet his $5 that he couldn't thumb his
way around the world. With $82 in
his pocket Friers tried it. He crossed
to Europe on an Irish freighter and
slipped into German. When he left
he smuggled $2,000 worth of cameras
and fled to the Balkans.
To add another to his many means
of travel, he rode a camel over the
Arabian desert and then hiked into

India. The British objected to his
