By NANCY GROBERG
For a while there we thought we
weren't going to get back to Ann
Arbor again. As a matter of fact it
didn't look as if anyone on the train
was going to hit New York. It's the
railroads-they keep messing things
They have a neat little system, the
men who pace up and down the aisles
of the Wolverine. They wait around
until they're sure you've gone to the
diner for an hour or so and then
change your car from a New York
bound one to a Detroit bound one. If
and when you ever see your car again
it is in the process of detaching itselfI
from the rest of the train. The prob-1
ability of redeeming your baggage
and other trivial belongings-such as
coat, typewriter, etc.-is practically
out of the question, and, running
through the station in Detroit in an
effort to catch some other car before
it rolls away, you are entitled to
succumb to any sort of language
which seems appropriate. Students
have been known to run through the
Detroit station for weeks at a time
trying to find the rest of the train.
Who's Got Your Ticket?
But the man who walks up and
down the aisle isn't finished with you
yet. When you have fallen into the
only sleep of the nocturnal journey
he will ask for your ticket. Having
lost the little red check he stuck in
your seat at the beginning of the
ride. you discover that people have midnight today and tomorrow in the

Conductors vs. Students
Railroad, people live in a world all
their own. If they believe in immor-
tality, they also believe that the
suffering which assures it should be
introduced into this world in no un-
certair terms. They are obviously
nauseated by anything vaguely re-
sembling a student and their most
unwavering belief could be called the
theory of pure animalism as the only
characteristic of college people.

suggest the only advisable method of
escape from this new torture device-

An orientation meeting for new
volunteers will be held some time
next week. Workers at St. Joseph's
Hospital do not need to attend a
meeting but must see Miss Wanzig,
director of nurses, for instructions.
Volunteer posts at University Hos-
pital include posts in wards, on pri-
vate floors and in clinics and other
stations where volunteers do not
work with patients.
Because of the desperate wartime
shortage of regular staff members,
both University and St. Joseph's Hos-
pitals are badly in need of volunteer
aid, Miss Evans said. University wo-
men are asked to contribute at least
two hours a week. They may go to
the hospitals during free afternoons

Five Poor Fish
Make Up Harem
Two coeds have devised what they
think is the perfect system for keep-
ing track of their dates.
For every new man, they purchase
a new gold fish to add to their fish-
bowl. In the words of one of them,
"Sort of like a harem, only not
exactly." On the day they are to go
out with a certain man, they transfer
the corresponding goldfish into a
smaller bowl . . . a reminder. If they
are 'doubling,' they transfer two of
the fish to the smaller bowl.
Currently they have five fish-
named Tom, Earl, Bruce, Dick and
Reggie. The coeds claim that they
choose each new fish to echo the
personality of the man in the case.
