Coed's Men Mix
In North Africa
We all know it's a small world, but
Virginia Barr,- of Martha Cook, is
thoroughly convinced it's 'way too
A lieutenant and a warrant officer
living in a hut somewhere in North
Africa were surprised to find they
both wrote to a Ginny Barr at Mar-
tha Cook, U.S.A., though they were
not as surprised as Ginny herself.
But the pay-off came when she
discovered that the lieutenant is the
company'; chief censor.
"And there's so much room in
North Africa!" said Ginny, who now
writes a letter as carefully as though
it were her last will and testament.

Houses Plan
Booths, Stunts
For Carnival
'Michibomber' Central Group
Receives Ideas from Thirteen
Sororities, Dorms, Companies
Thirteen is not an unlucky number
for Dorothy Darnall, '44, and the
"Michibomber" central committee
when it refers to the number of hous-
es that have to date turned in plans
for stunts at Bomber Scholarship's
all-campus carnival to be held from
8 p.m. to 12 p.m. Saturday, March 11,
in Waterman Gymnasium.
Returns are coming in every day
from dormitories, sororities, and ser-
vicemen's units, and plans for the af-
fair will be completed in short order,
according to Miss Darnall. Sand-
wiches and soft drinks will be an ex-
tra added attraction.
Repeat Performance
There will be two repeat perform-
ances from last summer's JGP July
Jamboree, an outdoor carnival. Pi
Beta Phi sorority will have custom-
ers pitch pennies onto a flag for
prizes, as they did at the Jamboree.
Company A will give a skit as it did
at the summer carnival.
Gamma Phi Beta will have another
type of penny-pitching, while Mosh-
er Hall will run a roulette game and
Zeta Tau Alpha a bingo booth. Alpha
Delta Pi will have patrons putting
out lighted candles with a squirt gun.
Three Alpha Gamma Delta girls will
stick their heads through a sheet so
you can hit them with wet sponges to
win a prize. Alpha Epsilon Phi will
let customers take it easy in a swivel
chair while throwing darts at a map.
Duck-Hunters Haven
If you've always yearned to go
duck-hunting, the girls of Collegiate
Sbrosis will help you out ... by let-
ting you throw rings around ducks in
a bathtub. Company B will suspend
bags of water over several boys. Cus-
tomers with sadistic tendencies may
enjoy hitting the bag, bursting it,
thereby drenching the boy.
Look Into the Future
Madame Bethine Clark, Martha
Cook seer, will tell fortunes while
palmists Jean and Glen Hedler, also
of Martha Cook, will employ their
