Its members gleaned from thel
ranks of dogdom, the Amalgamated i
Squirrel-Chasers Inc. is an organi-
zation that goes almost unrecognized,
on the Michigan campus. Its mem-
bers pursue their duties under the
very feet of students, yet few cant
name its outstanding personages. z
Headed by Jeff '49ST (Skye Ter-
rier), who lives at the Ruthven resi-
dence, this club has undertaken to
rid our beauteous campus of (you
guessed it), rodents. This noble pro-
ject has been under way for severall
years, and success looms ahead, but
weather conditions. leashes, and
trees form obstacles hard to combat.
Ralston Wins
The present holder of the M.S.E.
(most squirre'ls eliminated) Award,1
is Ralston '48M (mongrel). His fam-i
ed technique of tree climbing hasi
been watched with awe by hundreds
of students. At one time in his car-
eer he reached the height of 11 feet
perpendic'jlar. Unfortunately, how-'
ever, the Fire Department did not
appreciate his efforts; they had to be
called to get him down. But with
constant practice, Ralston hopes to
beat his own record. He is conduct-
ing classes in tree-climbing for ama-
teurs MWF 1 p.m. at the third elm
in front of Romance Language build-
ing. The only prerequisites are four
legs and a tail.
Two more distinguished members
are Beans '49BT (Boston Terrier)
and Sheba '49C (Collie). They form
a very capable two-man, oops, dog,
team. Their method, Patent Pend-
ing, is to station themselves, one on
each side of the tree, thereby keep-
Engagement Told
The engagement of Miss Elaine
Glasner, '44, to Mr. A. Victor Peter-
son Jr., '44E, son of Mr. and Mrs. A.
V. Peterson, of Rverside, Ill., has
been announced by her father, Mr.
R. W. Glasner of Chicago.
Miss Glasner has been a member
of the Women's Glee Club and has
worked on Junior Girls' Project. Her
fiance is president of Phi Gamma
USO Sponsors
Bridge Party
Servicemen desiring to play bridge,
will be welcomed at the USO club
at 2 p.m. today when the weekly du-
plicate bridge tournament gets under
Classes for those who do not know
the game will also be held. It is not
necessary to come with a partner,
for Junior Hostesses will be there
to, act as partners. A small fee will
be charged.
Also, any townspeople who have
extra bridge tables that they would
like to contribute to the USO are re-
minded that the large attendance of
these tournaments necessitates more

ing the squirrel trapped in the
branches. But passers-by often spoil
their scheme by shooing them away,
and permitting the rodent to escape.
Try-out Tail-nippers
Although they are only on the try-
out squad, Ransome '47RT (Rat Ter-
rier) and Angus '47S (Scottie) have
several squirrels to their credit. An-
gus is particularly adept at tail-nip-
ping. He says, however, that the flaw
in this system is that he sometimes
only gets the tail, while the rest of
the beast escapes.
The Alumni Association of the
Amalgamated Squirrel-Chasers Inc.
has many former fraternity mascots
in it. These are mostly of the Great
Dane and St. Bernard class, and they
write that they are unable to pursue
their sport elsewhere. It seems that
the University of Michigan squirrel
is particularly plump, slow, and un-
suspecting, while the other varieties
have much more speed, and are
therefore harder to get. A small
monument will soon be erected on
the Library Steps in honor of the
Alumni in Service
Many former members have joined
the Armed Forces and are stationed,
all' over the world. Bones '44PD (Po-
lice Dog), now a corporal in the
Coast Guard, has had many exper-
iences in combat duty.
The Amalgamated Squirrel-Chas-
ers Inc. will continue its project dur-
ing the coming between-terms vaca-
tion, and hope to have the campus
clear of the pests before spring term

Dressings Unit
Short of Help
Do you remember when the war
first broke out? And all the women
and girls tried their hardest to show
their patriotism. About the only
thing they could do in those early
days was to knit for the Red Cross
or to do work at surgical dressings..
After several months of work the
supply was well stocked, they
thought, and so the attendance
dropped off.
The work had become rather mon-
otonous by then, anyway; they could
work at the more glamorous jobs of
USO hostesses and canteen work.
The latter jobs were necessary too,
but what about surgical dressings?
Now the need for them is more vi-
tal than ever. The supply is low and
the work rooms are empty.
It's such a little to ask-just one
or two hours a week.
YOU may work today from 1 p.m.
to 5 p.m. at the League Surgical
Dressing Unit. Thursday and Friday
the rooms are open at the same time.
SDT Has Open House
Sigma Delta Tau Sorority will hold
an open house from 3 to 6 p.m. to-
day. Chaperons will be Mrs. Hugo
Popper, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Ack-
erman and Mrs. Saul Hoffberger.
There will be a meeting on Mon-
day, Jan. 24, in the Grand Rapids
Room of the League for all house
representatives in charge of pick-
ing up Assembly Bulletins.

Keep The Bell Ringing
With War Bonds
Browsing through the book
stacks in WAHR'S I found the
newest of books, both fiction
and non-fiction, Leland Stowe's
"They Shall Not Sleep" which
of his talk next Tuesday,
and the new Hopwood winner
"Golden Apples in the Sun" by
Rosemary Obermeyer.
Remember those mittens you
have been hunting for all over
town? They have them at the

They also have those beautiful
hand knit fascinators and some
clever hand made hot pads in
any color combination.
We dropped in at the DILLON
SHOP and found some darling
sweaters in luscious pastel
shades, and some beautiful
skirts to match. For the gloves
