"Michigan has the coldest student
body on the face of the earth."
This is the oft-heard cry and criti-
cism of students on other college cam-
puses who have anything at all to do
with University of Michigan students.
They are not inferring that Michi-
gan, students are bothered by a un-
due amount of cold weather. They
do mean that students here on cam-
pus have a decided tendency to stick
to their own cloistered groups and to
practically ignore those who do not
happen to belong to their own par-
ticular circle of friends.
A considerable number of ser-
viceinen on campus are of the opin-
ion that "liehigan students are
so wrapped up i their little groups
of friends and don't seem to have
time for a great many of us." Some
haye even voiced the fact that "we
wouldn't be here of our own free
will. We like to feel that we're
really wanted."
Realizing the problem that exists
at Michigan, the forces of the League
and the Union have joined to spon-
sor an Acquaintance Bureau which is
designed to promote friendship be-
tween students. It is definitely not a
"Date Bureau" but it has been estab-
lished with the idea of getting stu-
dents out of their own group or circle
to meet new people.
st'udents are being asked to reg-
ister with the bureau to help pro-
mote a strong campus spirit and to
help rid Michigan of its seeming-
ly{ "cold shoulder" attitude. There
are still new people to meet even
though a student has been on cam-
pus for a considerable length of
Registration for men will continue
from 3:30 to 5:30 p. m. on Mondays,
Wednesdays, and Thursdays in the
lobby of the Union, and for women
between 2:30 and 5:30 p. m. in the
League lobby on the same days.

Residents To Get Acquainted

for our..*

When over four. hundred girls sud-
denly find themselves living in the
same building with each scarcely
knowing the girl next door, some-
thing has to be done. The problem
was solved at Stockwell Hall by estab-
lishing "The Stockwell Ticker," a
weekly newspaper which comes out
every Thursday.
"The venture is primarily intended
to get the girls better acquainted and'
to provice an opportunity for them to
express themselves in creative writ-
ing and art work" explained Miss 01-
ga Overn, assistant house director and
advisor for the publication.
Page Editors Head Staff
Four page editors, Jane Quail, El-
eanor Sack, Daphne Silhavy, and
Barbara Gross, with a staff of 32
girls, write, lay out, and type the
stencils for the "Ticker," which is
mimeographed at the League. "Cor-
ridor Chatter," the gossip column, is
one of the most popular features and
is organized by Barbara Cross. Rep-
resentatives from each of the ten
f corridors are on her new staff and
contribute news from their group.

Virginia Brenkert, introduces a new
student or staff member each week.
Another convenience for Stockwell
residents is the Lost and Found col-
umn, and in a dorm the size of Stock-
well, it is understandable why the
column is always well filled.
Jane Wetmore provides the illu-
stration for the front page of each
j edition, while other members of the
are staff include Ruth Eberhardt,
Lucie Wayman, and Kate Hearst.
Contributions for the paper are plac-
ed in the "ticker machine," made by
Anne Yung-kuai, which is placed in
the main lobby.

in a formative state, we've had a fine
spirit of cooperation." Miss Overn
