Junior Girls Raise $40,000 in

War Stamps, Bonds

Freshmen Hup-Two-Three-Foui
In Traditional Orientation Treks

As the "breath of autumn's being"
fast turns into ye olde icy blast, hun-
dreds of freshmen trip over their
sweaters enroute to ye glorious ad-
venture-i.e. orientation. Hosannah!
Huzzah! And will group 305B please
meet in front of the library at seven
o'clock tomorrow morning.
Yes, this is orientation, otherwise
known as the lament of the swollen
foot-and to the ears of many new-
comers, it is music.
It is the music of about eight hun-
dred women, piling into the Rack-
ham Building, the library, and all
the other buildings on campus that
will hold them. It is the music of
two hundred men trying to make
dates with all of the eight hundred
women at once. It is the musics of
thousands of soldiers, pausing in
their "hup-two-three-four-s" to ask
advisers for "advice." The theme is
a bit confusing, and the meter is
very irregular, but it's music all right
-impressionistic stuff.
What Makes Frosh?
"What are freshmen male of?"
Pamphlets, and blank class cards
and empty fountain, pens-and green

tags that get left at home. And when
a freshman pricks her finger coca-
cola bubbles out.
"What are orientation advisers
made of?" Big brown envelopes, and
alarm clocks, and tags with blue
printing on them. And when an ad-
viser pricks her finger ice water bub-
bles out.
"What constitutes a promising
freshman?" She is capable of writ-
ing, mind-reading- and signing her
life away. She knows that while
Saturdays classes aren't compulsory
they are really "a good thing," nor
do professors have to hold open the
door for her; she holds it open for
Great Institution!
"What constitutes a successful
orientation adviser?" She can hold
her own under a rapid third degree,
can make out thirteen programs at
once, knows the location of the in-
formation booth, and she can spot
a green tag miles away.
Oh freshmen and advisers - ye
who get lost and ye who find the
way-know ye that orientation is a
great institution? Know ye that
despite the weary walk from building
to building, despite the ache of writ-
ers cramp, despite the mist of a
muddled mind, despite the wind
which puts up a fight at every
corner-know ye that despite all this
ye shall live to love the day you were
corralled into Hill Auditorium? For
there is no greater glory than this-
this business of orienting and being
Some Day Soon
Some day soon ye shall walk the
diagonal, carefree, calm, undirected
-with nothing more to worry about
than three term papers and an
hour bluebook. Some day soon the
man in the drug store will know you
so well that he will call you by name
when he tells you how much you owe
him. Some day soon you shall cool
off your feet in a classroom and un-
load your overburdened mind in the-
deep sleep which so often accom-
panies a lecture. Some day soon .. .
Oh, but it's %ll too clear to here
elucidate, too sweet to sugar-coat,
too certain to guarantee. Toss not,
then, in your respective rooms,
dreaming of dotted lines and aca-
demic counselors and meeting places
in the cold October air. But, rather,
lie peacefully abed, in perfect confi-
dence and in faith. For yours is the
kingdom of Ann Arbor and you shall
know no better home than this.
