ied and confused, the Senate today
refused by a one-vote margin to com-
promise with the House over the bill
to abolish the office of state highwayj
commissioner, and the measure went 1

pending further discussions of strate-
There were some indications that
the bill which has kept the legislature
in a turmoil for weeks, was dead, but
it has been proclaimed a fatality be-
fore and revived.
For the third successive day, Lieut.
Gov. Eugene C. Keyes flatly refused
to let proponents of the measure
bring it to a vote. Opponents finally
agreed to break the parliamentary
deadlock and permitted a final ballot
on it, by allowing proponents to sus-
pend rules which Keyes had used to
block a vote.
The Senate then by a vote of 16
to 15 refused to accept a House-Sen-
ate conference report which would
replace the Highway Commissioner
with a three-man board appointed by
the governor, which would nominate
for a highway director for appoint-

The old custom of allowing only seniors to carve their initials in
the Union Cafeteria tables has been expanded to meet wartime de-
mands, and from now on any stpdent leaving for the armed services
may make his mark on the tables. Dick Ford, above, a junior, is exer-
cising his new privilege. When the tables are fully carved they will be
finished and then mounted on the cafeteria walls.

Senior male students are carving
their initials on the tops of the tables.
It is said that one of the numerous
reasons why male students come to
the University of Michigan is to
carve their initials on the top of one
of the tables in the Union Tap Room
when they finally reach the exalted
position of a senior.
Here in the Union the student's
name is preserved for posterity and
all of his relatives and children that
might attend the U. of M. at some
future date.

Health Service Director Dr. For-
sythe who just returned from a meet-
ing of the Council of American Stu-a
dent Help in Chicago said that he
anticipated greater demands to be
placed on the Health Service as more
soldiers arrive on campus.
"The government has asked the!
University-Health Services to remain
open at their own expense for the
soldiers as well as regular students.
The soldiers will not be asked to do
orderly duty in the Health Service
and therefore we feel that the stu-
dents should use their leisure time
for useful purposes," Dr. Forsythe
Both the hospital and the Health
