and Claire Macauley, '46, of Martha
Cool, and Sybil Baum, '46, of New-
berry, co-ticket chairmen.
The predominance of two dormi-
tories on the committee is the result,

that the majority of petitions were
turned in from Martha Cook and.

late in March, the committee was
named early so it can start work
immediately at the beginning of next

Pbet Squirrel's
Afternoon Teat
For Martha Cookites Sarb Osborne
and Ann Schutz, feeding time comes
four times a day, rather than the
usual prosaic three.
And it all started when they found
a plump brown squirrel on their
fourth story window ledge. Said
squirrel, looking hungry, was fed
and rewarded his benefactresses by
coming back every succeeding day at
4 p.m. for more food. Named Bot-
tomley, for another Cook resident, he
displayed an enormous appetite, and
devoured anything that was given
him. He even snuck in one day and
started chewing on an errant sock,
which was rescued by its indignant
But Bottomley offers complica-
tions. Now that the exams loom
ahead, the coeds find that it inter-
rupts an afternoon of studying to
come home and feed their squirrel.
In fact it is getting very detrimental
to their studies. But Bottomley claims
that he has never spent a winter
more profitably.

Adelia Cheever House Places
First of Dorms in Time Spent
in Extra-Curricular Pursuits
The great number of hours spent
by University coeds in extra-curricu-
lar activities was highly praised yes-
terday by Monna Heath, '44. presi-
dent of the War Council, who com-
mented that University women "are
doing a swell job" as the statistics
for the month of December were
released by the Council.
Coeds in Adelia Cheever House
worked an average of 53 hours per
girl in extra-curricular activities to
top the report. Cheever's 25 residents
put in a total of 1,325 hours of work,
most of it concentrated on paid jobs,
work inside the house, and on cam-
pus publications.
In second place 'is the group of
coeds living in the Michigan League,
where the average per person was 46
hours. Another small house, Alum-
nae House, followed with 36.5 hours
per person, most of which was paid
Martha Cook coeds put in 4,158
extra-curricular hours during De-
cember, for an average of 30.8 hours
per person. 'he majority of hours
from Cook Building were spent in
non -paid campus War activities. Mar-
tha Cook also has the only C.A.P.
cadet, aid therefore wins in a walk
with flying hours.

more small h'duses: Ingalls, with 27.7;
Geddes, 20, and Hill, 19. Leading the
larger Jniversity-operated residence

Klein, chairman of the '47 Corps.
Contrary to the original plan and
to the custom of previous years, the
'47 Frolic will be held for freshmen
women only and is to provide oppor-
tunity for all freshmen women on
campus to become acquainted with
each other. It will be an original
costume party. Each girl is expected
to "dream up" a clever outfit using
any old clothes she has on hand.
Entertainment will be in the form
of skits provided by the various hous-
Last year, in accordance with the
plans set out by the League, the var-
ious classes abandoned their usual
Frolics, Cabarets and Plays. Instead
the freshmen undertook the enter-
taining of the servicemen stationed
on the campus for their project and
did not sponsor their Frolic.
However, in all previots years the
incoming class has had some kind of
a dance. The Class of '47 adds a
new note when they put on an all-
girl affair, for the former ones have
been functions with a "name band."

Curbs on Building
Will Not Be Relaxed
WASHINGTON, Feb. 7.-(P)-The
armed forces need so much lumber
that there is scarcely any possibility
of relaxing the curbs on civilian con-
struction in 1944, the War Produc-
tion Board said today.
Prospects for lumber production
this year are substantially under the
34 billion board feet needed, said Roy
V. Johnson, director of WPB's facili-
ties bureau. Seventy per cent of the
total needs are for the armed forces.

"Bows for Bonds" is today's motto,
for Junior Girls Project expects each
coed on campus to wear a hairbow to
prove she has bought an extra war
stamp in JGP's special boost for its
$30,000 goal for the year. it was an-
nounced recently by Marcia Netting,
'45, of the central committee.
Stamps will be sold and bows
handed out at points all over campus
and in the women's larger dormitor-
ies. While the amount of stamps
bought is voluntary, the JGP central
committee urges each coed to buy as
many as possible to spark the drive.
Vari-Colored Ribbons,
Ribbons will be of dillerent colors
so there will be no difficulty ;uch as
a green bow with a blue sweater, and
red-heads need not fear a clashing
shade of orange.
Women's houses have been as-
signed to sell stamps and hand out
bows at campus posts as follows:
Diagonal center, Collegiate Sorosis
and Alpha Phi; Romance Language
Building, Alpha Delta Pi. Alpha Epsi-
lon Phi, Chi Omega and Alpha Xi
Delta; between University Hall and
Angell Hall, Kappa Kappa Ganina
and Gamma Phi Beta; Barbour Gym-
nasium, Pi Beta Phi and Kappa Al-
pha Theta.

In the League Lobby will be Delta
Gamma and Kappa Delta.; Engineer-
ing Arch, Alpha Omicron Pi, Sigma

Gamma Delta; Natural Science Buil-
ding, Delta Delta Delta and Alpha
Chi Omega.
Women's dormitories--Mosher and
Jordan Halls, Stockwell Hall, Martha
Cook Building, Betsy Barbour House
and Helen Newberry Residence-will
have stamps sold and bows issued in
the buildings throughout the day.
Alpha Omicron Pi has announced
the recent electiotis of new officers.

LL us not in naive numbers
College Life's a happy dream,
For, the things we've been suspecting
Are exactly what they seem.
LIFE is marks and life is bluebooks,
Life is quizzes unannounced;
Life is lots of outside reading,
Life is pleasures spurned, denounced.
LIFE is clocks that aren't working,
Life is men that aren't here;
Life's the card that you are missing
And must have to buy the beer.
LIFE is eight o'clock in winter,
Three o'clocks when spring appears;
Life is rules and regulations,
And the joke that no one hears.
IN THE battle of Ann Arbor-
It's a battle, heaven knows-
Who can even boast of having ,
Witnessed all the latest shows?
Roommates haven't got a cent;
And you'll find the course you've chosen
Cut out in the supplement.
" IFE is theses, all unwritten,
Life in finals close a't hand;
Life is poets writing verses
Telling you that life is grand.
LET us then be up and reading
Lots of textbooks, good and deep;
Still no good at memorizing,
Learn to do without our sleep.
