'Molly, Moller
Or, Life Is Jus
Molly and me and our six-
month-old Mollerina have a nice
two and one-third rooms apart-
ment, completely furnished with
bathtub fixtures included, just off
campus and it costs only $67.50 per
month because I'm caretaker and

I was here before, you know.
In fapt, I took Molly to the J-Hop
in '41 (Goodman and Krupa, you

later that Molly and me were en-
But that's too far behind the
story. The editor says he thinks
that fathers and mothers at the
J-Hop this year have to go

sacrifice, you know, for the single
night's fun and frolic. So he wants

"Yes, dear," Molly replied,
snatching the paper from my
grasp and forcing me to look at
her. "Of course, we won't go."
"Of course."

Eleven Month Cold
Racing wintry winds swept over
the Michigan campus today as
the weather bureau predicted that
the present cold spell may con-
tinue for another 11 months.
Meteorologist F. M. Icicle told a
reporter that we can expect frig-
id winter -weather next January.
"I seldom like to go out on a
limb," Icicle said, "but you can't
gainsay this weather."
Students who had been routed
to Denver to avoid the tremen-
dous snowfall in the North and
Midwest didn't quite know wheth-
er or not he was joking.
