(storesthey can get cigarettes only if
they purchase something else at the
same time. One merchant has re-
vealed a similar practice existing
between jobber and dealer:
The jobber offers the merchant
a reasonable supply of "stoops"
(under-the-counter sellers) if he
will also buy fruits and flavors for
the soda fountain. This merchant
has been dealing with the jobber
for seven years, yet he now gets
less than four per cent as many
cigarettes from him as he used to,
mainly because he refuses to buy
on the "something else too" prin-
He maintains, however, that an-
other merchant who has just recently
begun to trade with this jobber is
able to get a very adequate supply of
cigarettes because at the same time
he does buy fruits and flavors at
'"fancy prices."
But no matter who's got the cigar-
ettes or how they get them, students
are beginning to revive a ,song hit of
1938, which began, "Here we are---
Out of cigarettes-"

Peace at a meeting of the Michigan
Council on Education to be held at
State Normal College in Ypsilanti to-
At the meeting he will try to deter-
mine the opinion of those present on
the following questions: Is it possible
at this time to determine whether
compulsory military service is or is
not a postwar necessity for the Unit-
ed States? Does the proposal to
create a new federal. educational
agency to serve youth constitute
a serious threat to our state and
community control of education? and
Should the defense goals of com-
pulsory military training be sep-
arated completely from the social
anc eiucational goals?
The Michigan Council on Educa-
tion is made up of all organizations
of teachers and representaitives of
colleges and school systems.

State Shortage
Of Christmas
Trees Feared
Director Contradicts
Federal Yule Reports
LANSING, NOV. 28-0P)-The
state may not have enough Christ-
mas trees this year because Michi-
gan Christmas tree handlers who
were faced with a flooded market last
year fear a similar experience this
season, C. A. Boyer, director of or-
chard and nursery inspection for
the state agricultural department,
said stoday.
Boyer, differing sharply from fed-
eral reports of a plentiful tree sup-
ply, said fewer than one-tenth the
usual number of yule trees have pass-
ed through permit checking sta-
tions to date. He estimated the state
usually used between 750,000 and
1,000,000 Christmas trees, while cur-
rent operations indicate a 250,000
tree shortage this year. Last year,
1,500,000 were cut.
Boyer said he didn't "want to start
another rush into the woods like
last year when more than 250,000
surplus trees were cut and had to be
burned, but if the tree trade con-
tinues as it has for another week we
won't have enough trees for the
Christmas season."
Normally trees for urban markets
would have been cut by this time,
Boyer said, but spot checks inicated
few had been. He attributed the in-
dicated shortage ' to lack of labor
and fear of financial loss.

The Michigan Union is a com-c
mon meeting ground for the alumni,
students, and members on campus.N
It is the outgrowth of years of carefuls
planning and thoughtful discussiong
by leaders who were interested in
the welfare of the University. Thes
growth of the Union has not stoppedI
with its construction. Its many ser-
vices meet the needs of our chang-
ing world.
Proposed in 1903 the plan for a
central organization for Michigan
men was not adopted until Novem-
ber, 1904. Following a colorful ear-
ly history, the construction of the
present home of the Union was start-
ed in June, 1916. Additions made
to the building in 1930 and 1937
have greatly increased its capacity.
Provides Recreation
What does the Union provide for
its members? Besides being a meet-
ing place, it has recreational facili-
ties. Among these are the bowling
alley, billiard rooms, swimming pool,
and ball room for dancing. The
Pendelton Library is for the use and
convenience of members. The Exec-
utive Council of the Student Office is
the aspiration of the more energetic.
Yet, the Union does more than to
serve us during our few years at col-
lege; it also includes in its organiza-
tion a plan covering life membership.
In 1926 the present plan of includ-
ing Union dues in the tuition of the
student was inaugurated. The dues
are ten dollars per year.
Life Membership
This amount -is applied toward a
life membership. The completion of
four years in the University entitles
a student to the gold emblem and
life-membership card. Should the
student leave the University before
graduation, it is still possible for him
to become a life member. He must
supplement within one year what-
ever is necessary to make the total of
$40. Students not completing the
payment within one year are assessed:
$10 extra. An increasing number of'
students come to the Union after
leaving school expecting membership
privileges. They find that their mem-
bership is no longer effective. They
knew nothing about the life member-
ship plan. As a benefit to these
people, Mr. Kuenzel and his staff
have contemplated sending out let-
ters. These letters will unfold the
life plan, giving the former students
a chance to receive these rights.
At present, approximately 50,000
men have paid their Union dues. This
figure shows enlargement over the
7,000 that there were shortly after
24,400 Life Members
In the Union offices are records of
24,400 life members. The staff is
hoping to increase this number after,
the letters are mailed to the men who
dropped out of Michigan before they
