Streak of Humanism Changes

Tflie girl; or Collegiae Sorosis sor-
orit, wanted to buy a duckI but fear
of actio7 by th huanec,"iety
vetoed the Ilan, oci!iinally couiceivedl
for Bomber Scholarshi}1's "Michi-
bomber" carnival March 11 in Waler-
man Gymnasium.
The coed's "ducky" idea for a booth
at the "Michibomber" turned out to
be strongly reminilscent of a stunt at
the last "Michelodeon" carnival sev-
eral years ago, at which the city
humane society stepped in. This time
the ducks were to be plted in a
bathtub and ('ustomners were to vie
for honors at throwing rings arounl
the birds' necks.
In finding it necessary to duck this
plan, the sorority was victim of a
quack deal, unless feathers are more
to be considered than the human


-pidernis. At the -Michibomber."
customers can throw wet sponges at
girls, can drench men with ibatgs of
water, can endanger thelives of oth-
ers present by tossing darts from a
swivel-chair. But, they c in' toss a
ring around a duck.
Toroughly indoctrinatvd ith hit-
mianitrianism, the Sorosis girls have
decided to become a boon to mankind
and run a special telegraph service
at the carnival, whereby for a small
sum you can send a message to any-
one on the floor.
Sorosis might help you catch a
bird, after all.

'Thumbs Down on
V-Mail Kisses' Post
Office Announces
The soldiers may want a paper
dolly but the girls at home like paper
kisses. At least that's the general
opinion of the post office officials
when they have to sort the innumer-
able V-mails with the ruddy but
rather messy lipstick lip-prints end-
ing the letters.
Until Valentine's Day these kisses
will be permitted to go through the
regular #-mail process, but after Dan
Cupid's day all such romantic tricks
must cease, announced the post office
Any lipstick print found in a V-
mail letter after Feb. 14 will cause
the V-mail to be sent in the ordinary
