'Michibomber Stunts Rolf In
As Newberry Has Mice Fright

Force Change
In Swim Club
The WAA Swimming Club has
been reorganized to include women
who would like to learn how to swim,
according to Marie Cassetari, '44Ed.,
manager of the club.
The group, which will meet at 7:30
p.m. Wednesday in the Barbour
swimming pool, will spend the time
learning how to swim, practicing
difficult strokes and improving meth-
ods. Miss Cassetari will act as in-
"Barbour pool, which is very shal-
low and small, was not satisfactory
for experienced swimmers and div-
ers. Consequently we decided to re-
organize our program; the swrimming
club as such will no longer exist, but
will be replaced by this new class,"
Miss Cassetari explained.-
"However," Miss Cassetari con-
tinued, "the fact that there will be
beginners using the pool does not
mean that experienced swimmers
are excluded from our meetings."

Coeds Have Rodent Distaste,
Decide To Take Up Bowling
It's a long tale, but it seems as
though the Helen Newberry coeds
have mice-fright. And it was gnaw-
ing at their consciences, anyhow.
Newberry appointed a committee
to sponsor a booth at the "Michi-
bomber" carnival Saturday, March
11, and the carnival central commit-
tee suggested that Newberry put on
mouse races for customers to bet on.
But the coeds on the committee
began to talk about who was to
handle the mice, and the whole pro-
ject was off. They will set up a min-
iature bowling alley, instead.
However, a problem remains. Since
the girls of Helen Newberry are
eliminating mice from their lives,
how about human rodents? , How
about an investigation? Are they
men or are they mice? Put a piece
of cheese down there and find out.

Plans for Scholarship Frolic
Add 'Romeo and Juliet' to Cast
Seven more Women's houses have
reported stunts for the "Michibomb-
er" carnival sponsored by Bomber
Scholarship Saturday, March 11, in
Waterman Gymnasium, it was an-
nounced yesterday by Dorothy Dar-
nell, '44, chairman of the central
committee for the event.
Kappa Delta sorority will repeat
its modernized "Romeo and Juliet"
skit which won first prize at Victory
Vanities I in August, while Alpha
Omitron Pi will give its version of
"Red Riding Hood."
Depending upon the mood of the
customer, he can pound nails at Chi
Omega's booth or aim at hearts with
Delta Delta Delta's archery equip-
Carrying out the sports motif,
Kappa Kappa Gamma will sponsor a
baseball throw, while Helen Newber-
ry Residence will have a miniature
bowling alley. Kappa Alpha Theta
will set up "pee-wee golf."

Right Is Wrong(
If You're QoiN
To Cook Bldg.
To go right or to go left, that was
the question . . . for Martha Cook
coeds returning home after a hard
day's war work at the League.
Since time immemorial a Cook girl
has come to the point on campus
where she was in a state of annoying
indecision. There is a spot in front
of the library at which one must
turn either right or left to reach
Martha Cook Building. Some thought
the shorter distance lay to the right,
but then there was the leftist faction
to cause dissension in the ranks.
But noemore. Enterprising Cookies
Fran Goldberg, Claire MacCauley,
Florene Wilkins and Marge Hall solv-
ed the problem for once and for all.
The quizzical quartet used the scien-
tific method, measuring their respec-
tive footsteps, and synchronizing
their length. And two set out in one
direction and two in the other.
Conclusion: It takes exactly 20 full
steps additional to get to Martha
Cook the.right way.

During the past semester 54,000
4x4 dressings and 37,000 2x2 dress-
ings were made at the League Unit.
"As the quota for Washenaw
County is to be 15% greater it will
mean that more volunteers will have
to give More hours next semester to
meet the new minimum," Miss Fish-
el urged.

day, Wednesday, and Friday from 9
a.m. to 4 p.m.

certainly caused a big stir
on campus this year. Vot-
ing was first held a week
ago Friday. Then it was
announced Sunday that the
Men's Judiciary Council
had thrown out the election
because of "alleged irregu-
larities." Tuesday it was
announced that Harriette
Wiltsee and Allan H. An-
derson were removed fi'om
the ballot. Apparently the
"alleged irregularities" con-
sisted in the presence of
the candidates within a
50-foot radius of the vot-
ing polls. Whether-or not
one or both of them did
any electioneering within
that zone was not defin-
itely stated. Harriette wiit-
see said, "I admit that I
was within a 50-foot radius
of the poll, but I don't see
how I did any defrauding
in the election." Allan An-
derson said he went to the
poll because he had heard
there were irregularities
going on, that upon arriv-
ing he discovered the report


election was held. Stan
Wallace, Pat Coulter and
Marjorie Rosmarin were
elected to the V-Ball com-
mittee representing the lit-
erary college. A member of
the Men's Judiciary Coun-
cil termed it "one of the
heaviest elections in recent
years.'' Students had real-
ized for a long, time that a
strong pol-litiA machine
existed on canpus. Some
even realized that lack of
student interest in student
affairs made the existence
of the mnach ine possible.
Said the Men's Judiciary
Council, "Thre Council is
particularly disappointed in
the attitude of Lhe student
body regarding our action.
The typical statement is,
'Why try to keep elections
honest? They have been
illegal for years. I don't
see any reason for all this
trouble.'" . . . Then J. J.
Linker wrote a letter to
The Daily, stated that the
same irregularities took
place during the election
in the Engineering College

for the campus he said,
