Laundry Problem Irks Coeds as
Imminent Final Exams Draw Nigh
Along with all the other crises of our times, comes something which has,
coeds agree, too long been overlooked-namely, the laundry problem. The
incompatibility of finals and dirty wash has eternally been the cause of
divorce between many a coed and cleanliness, and, in the face of this; all
sorts of suggestions are being offered.
Suggestions Offered
One philosophy major suggested that the separation of dirt from clothes
is as complicated as the separationof the soul from the body. Consequent-
ly, she advocated a special course, to be offered each semester, and entitled,
"Elements of Washing." This course, she continued, would deal primarily
with the principles behind the soap industry and would enable intelligent
Michigan women to get the most out of every chip, flake, or cake.
An economics student, inclined to be blunt about it, said, "Send 'em
to the laundry,",but her suggestion was counteracted by that of an English
major who said, "Whatever you do, don't send 'em to the laundry."
Situation Desperate
Suggestions or no suggestions, the fact remains that there is a definite
problem, and that this problem becomes more acute with the advent of
finals. Even in normal times women have been known to spend whole weeks
in the laundry rooms of their respective dormitories, and some of them have
no room in their closets, now that; their laundry bags have begun to bulge.
It,has been pointed out that much time could be saved if ironing were to
be eliminated, but social pressure has put the damper son this idea.
Education vs. Laundry
So it all boils down to this: the Michigan women must choose between
getting an education and getting the bulge out of her laundry bag. Rumor
gas it that absences from finals will not be excused on the basis of dirty
laundry. But on the other hand there is a watchbird watching the coed
who wears unironed blouses. (Have you been wearing unironed blouses this
week?) It's just another one of those unsolved problems-the type that
comes up so often nowadays. Statistics prove that there is a 50-50 chance
for the laundry. Anyone want to place any bets?

and 17, aitMthe Michigan League where
they will interview prospective WA-
A news release from the Navy De-
partment in Detroit stated that the
WAVES will be glad to interview
those interested in their branch of
service, either as officer candidates
or as enlisted women.
The increasing demand for WAVES
to release men for active sea duty
has resulted in a step-up in quotas.
Because of this, WAVES are making
every effort to recruit a large num-
ber of women from this territory.
WAVES are stationed at important
Naval Stations throughout the coun-
try. Women have been assigned to
airport control towers, routing pilots
in and out of the field. "Radio-wo-
men" type out dispatches vital to
ships and planes.
Women may serve as mail clerks,
storekeepers, members of the Hos-
pital Corps, or as yeomen, handling
orders, dispatches and other papers
vital to the operation of the Navy.
WAVES have proved that they can
handle many jobs, formerly done by

Coed 'sSliupper
The other morning a coed, follow-
ed by the professor of philosophy to
whose class she was going, entered
Mason Hall. The door swung closed
before she could get her foot inside
and her shoe was ripped off and
flung at the professor's feet.
Slowly, gently, he bent to pick it
up. The c6ed turned deep purple.
But the professor was not to be stop-
ped. "Here, Cinderella," he said soft-
ly, "here is your slipper." He hand-
ed it to her and trod his philosophic
way upstairs.

Co6nd uct Own
Sal vageDrive
Three roommates, Boo, Charlie
and Marion, residents of Stockwell
Hall; are conducting their own fat
salvage drive.
Not deterred by the fact that they
do not do their own cooking, the
three members of the 4002 Club
(their room number is 4002) manage
to rescue at least a pound of waste

fat a day for Uncle Sam. Their chief
source of material is the plates of
the Stockwelli annd Mosh( er-Jordan
Working in shifts, the three take
turns going from one table to an-
other asking permission to spear any
unedible fat scrial)s. Anot'ier source
of matei'ial is 1 ttincan cay ttcak(d to
the door of the 4002 Club beneath a
sign saying. "Please deposit all fatl"
During the evening the day's pro-
ducts are fried and the melted fat is
poured into jars. Not only do the
girls have the satisfaction of know-
ing they are 'doing their part" but
they also find the brown points
which they receive for the tat are
mighty nice to have around.

Coeds Endure
Day of Agony
Bewildered Honoraries Are
Harassed by Student Queries
Honoraries may be an honor, but
the recent tapping by women's honor
societies on campus has proved to be
a source of deep embarrassment for
the coeds.
Not being -used to all this sudden
attention the honoraries have run
out of snappy answers to all the
questions directed to them. Besides
dodging snowballs aimed at their
mortarboards, the girls recently
tapped by the society had to answer
=innumerable questions, mostly from
servicemen. Typical, of the queries
fired at them are the following:
"Don't you think it's a bit early for
that?" "Aren't you a bit prema-
ture?" "Are you really graduating?"
-This in the middle of January.
And then there was Senior Society
tapping, after which the new mem-
bers wore white collars and large
blue bows for one day. This was no
less comment-provoking. The worst
happened when one coed was asked
if she really thought that huge bow
was becoming, and when someone
else suggested she transfer it to her

girls living on the corridor which
made the most purchases during the
last week in January.

33% of the total sales for the week.
'Pictures Lie' Say
Michibomber Artists
"Pictures also lie," so you will have
the chance to see how prevaricating
an art student can be at the "Michi-
bomber" carnival on Saturday, March
11, in Waterman Gymnasium.
Betsy Barbour House and Alpha
Chi Omega sorority will each set up
booths where artists will sketch cus-
tomers or draw shadow caricatures
for a small fee which will go to
Bomber Scholarship, which is spon-
soring the carnival.
