the problems which have to be met

The purpose of the event is to

Bell System Reports
Busy Phone Wires
The influx of such a large number
of students this year has had a tre-
mendous effect on various services
in Ann Arbor, not the least of which
is the telephone system, as reports
from the Michigan Bell Telephone
System aptly illustrate.
The number of outgoing calls alone,
has mounted continually since the
commencement of the fall session.
7 to 9 p.m. seems to be the busiest
time for that call home (explaining
the difficulty in keeping the budget
down, perhaps?), and this .time finds
the dormitory lines rather full.
Consequently, as the Telephone
Company director points out, the op-
erator's patience is constantly on
trial, and if students will comply
with rules and regulations, it would,
be pleasanter for both parties.

least 8 hours sleep, and three well-
balanced meals. The results are cer-

At 'U' Changes
Plans Will Be Made To Relieve
Lack of Recreation Facilities
"I do not think there has been a
fundamental change in the young
people, but rather a change in the
campus," stated Dean Alice Lloyd,
when asked to comment on the
changing attitude of the students on
"There has been a tremendous
change of social life first due to the
war, and now to the tremendous en-
rollments and age differences. We
now have a large group of married
and single veterans, which makes a
complicated social picture. There has
been a challenge for younger students
in meeting older ones in the class-
rooms," commented Miss Lloyd.
She further indicated that the
present situation had brought to
light the most interesting year the
University has ever faced, that which
involved the overcrowded classrooms
and lack of recreational facilities.
"We are very eager to increase recre-
ational facilities as soon as possible,
and are now taking steps to relieve
the situation," Miss Lloyd added.
Miss Lloyd commented that social
dancing has always been one of the
most popular social activities of col-
lege students. The use of cars for
these affairs on campus was per-
mitted until 1927, when the privilege
was discontinued for a number of
reasonscone being the large number

Proper Knowledge o Football
By JUDITH ROBBINS
Now that October's bright blue
weather has turned tangy, the Mich-,
igan coed has initiated many new
ideas for keeping out of the cold.
If dressing for the weather isn't
given enough thought, she is liable to
appear at the colder games looking
a little rotund-having donned sev-
eral shirts, sweaters, sox and boots
for the occasion. But the gal who
plans her wardrobe beforehand can
look smooth and still be warm.
Well-tailored slacks of men's wear
flannel are always practical and
smart. Gray is attractive and still
slenderizing, while for the woman
Before the war women were per-
mitted 1:30 a.m. late permis§ion on
Fridays, but this was changed as a
war measure. Due to the present lack
of adequate housing facilities, wom'-
ens closing hours have remained to
insure the students' health. "There
is a tendency to let 'side shows' de-
tract from the 'big tent'" she said.
"We don't need more social life, but
need to protect the academic life."
Miss Lloyd does not agree with the
statement frequently made that the
coeds' primary purpose of attending
a university was to find a husband.
"I choose to believe that the major-
ity of women sincerely want an edu-
cation and are in college for that
purpose," she stated.

These coats; plaid and plain, will
have the broad shoulders that every
one loves. They will have coachman's
collars to turn up against the icy
blasts, and the backs will be full and
ripple from a yoke.
When the cold becomes cloth-cut-
ting, mouton coats will begin to ap-
pear. Mouton is youthful and perfect
for college. It has a beaver-like beau-
ty and a processed durability. For the

and finish a smart ensemble.
The Hostess committee and the
Decorations committee of Soph
Cabaret will meet at 5 p.m. to-
day in the League. The rooms in
which these meetings will be
held will be posted on the bulletin
board at the League Main Desk.
Science Shown By
By JOYCE JOHNSON
The over casts, potato bread signs
take wing and the crowds hustle
down to the stadium to look for
friends, to add another program to
their collections and to partake of
forbidden refreshments. Many peq-
ple also go to see the football game.
The fairer variety of students have
often been accused of not under-
standing and therefore not being able
to appreciate fully the science of the
game, but the coed in the next row
who inquires hysterically at the end
of every play, "Is that a first down?"
is indicative of the keen interest
women have in football.
Keen interest they also have in
football players. Many's the coed
who, so excited at the prospect of
seeing "Mr. Muscles" in action,
can't get her binoculars focused on
him in time for the big play. And
the women may be counted on to
groan appropriately as the grid-"
iron hits each hero.
Football is easy to understand. The
players of both teams line up for a
few minutes, then tear madly to-
ward each other and in the mad
scramble that follows the fans are
supposed to guess who has the ball.
But as one analytic coed remarked, a
lot of this confusion could be elimi-
nated if the team would line up with
their backs to each other to avoid
bumping into one another.
This much of the game is readily
comprehended. The mystifying
part is why twenty-two red-blooded
American boys are buffaloed by
only three men in black and white
who are allowed to hover over each
play and intermittedly move the
whole bunch to a different part of
