To Wise Public
For 'some time past, the USO
has been holding regular Friday
evening dancing classes. At the
risk of having their toes mashed
unmercifully, pert little hostesses
endeavor to initiate servicemen
into the art while Miss McCor-'
mack issues directions and counts
one-two-three-fo'ur in a loud voice.
The lessons begin with the fox.
trot and it is hoped that they will
eve tually progress to the rhumba

gan drivers.
Ramsdale's downfall come, how-
ever, when he was strolling peace-
fully across the diagonal at eight
o'clock the other morning, breath-
Ing. in the beauties of the dawn,
invigorated by the cold, crisp nor-
thern air. Suddenly his reveries
were rudely interrupted by the
sound of many tramping feet and
a stentorial "hip-hek-hoc-huk." It
was too late. The advancing horde
passed on, leaving poor Ramsdale
flat on the sidewalk.
Utterly crushed in spirit, he is
now in the hospital recuperating
from a broken back and compound
fractures of both legs.
Here's low ...
To all ye poor little freshmen
about to fill out registration blanks
we' experienced upperclassmen
hereby present advice, garnered
through long, bitter experience.

1. Have a simple name, some-
thing like John Doe or Mary Jones.
2. Live at a simple address, pref-
erably 1 Main.
3. Be born on an uncomplicated
date, e.g. 1-1-11,2-2-22 or 3-3-33.
4. Shoot all parents and guard-
ians before coming.
5. Become an atheist. -
6. Ignore all directions to print,
cross and "mark X in this space."
7. When you come to the blank
marked "sex" be sure to check
both "male" and "female." It gives
the recorder's office a thrill.
Added hints: List all nicknames,
pet names, abbreviations and
whimsical changes, thereby con-
fusing the registrar's office no
end. Write in lipstick or eyebrow
pencil. Fill out all blanks, includ-
ing Nos. 3651 SU, 24561J, 38570012
Z, lA and 4F. Bring your Buick
convertible. It will be useful in
getting to and from classes inside
Angell Hall.

Naughty, Naughty...,
Michigan coeds, still noL quite
sure whether they are "doing their
part in the war effort" since the
recent knock-down-drag-out fight
on the issue, continue to putter
around in war activities under the
guidance of that institution known
as the Women's War Council. One
of the- most popular activities is
the laundry.
Incidentally, all the sheets from
West Quad are done there. Most
of the sheets and pillowcases look
as if they had never been washed
because the V-12's have a quaint
habit of polishing their shoes with
the bed linen.

Pfc. Loretta Sullivan Fuhrer of Portland, Ore., operates a
powerful 24-inch turning lathe in the engineering shop at the
women marine corps training base, Camp Lejeune, New
River, N.C.

A flock of more than 200 Mallard ducks spends summer and winter on the Red Cedar river
sanctuary on the Michigan State College campus. Here is one reason why the wild birds have
become tame. Students treat them as pets. Coeds Margaret Ann DeGroot, Dundee; Mary Kelly,
Detroit; Janice Hopps, Ypsilanti, and Angelyn Mueller, Detroit, left to right, feed them scraps.
