La Due, Tlornbury Hit by Housing Shortage


EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the fourth in
a series of weekly articles on faculty
Don Thornbury and Russell LaDue
have these things in common:
They are Teaching Fellows in the
English department.
They are Marine veterans.
They owe each other money.
They are room-mates.
More accurately, as Thornbury
puts it: "We are room-mates as soon
as we find a room."
Rumor has it that they met while
sleeping at a mutual friend's apart-
ment. Actually this is not true. Their
friendship dates back to one of the
lesser campaigns of the war when
the two of them were thrown together
at the same Marine V-12 unit . .
here in Ann Arbor.
Window Crawling
"In those days," says LaDue wist-
fully "we used to crawl through the
windows at the West Quad to go out
on liberty nights. Now we wish we
could crawl through to get back in."
Prior to their Ann Arbor duty in
the Marine Corps, neither of them
had attended the University.
Thornbury, in giving a brief bio-
graphical sketch of his friend LaDue

"LaDue was born in Sioux City, ed-
ucated and raised in Sioux City and
currently resides in Sioux City. All
of these are in Iowa."
Dignity Trouble
At present, the two of them are
having a difficult time maintaining
the traditional dignity and stability
of faculty members. Both of them
are attending the Graduate School
as well as handling their teaching
assignments and as yet they have no

"It's pretty sad," LaDue says dis-
gustedly. "I keep my laundry at Joe
Walker's, get my mail at the Student
Publications Building and I have to
race with Thornbury for the first
available couch."
This last leaves LaDue at a consid-
erable disadvantage. Thornbury is
about 6 feet 4 inches as compared
with LaDue's 5 feet 7 inches and out-
weighs him by a good 60 pounds.
Couch vs. Floor
One night both of them slept at a

mutual friend's, LaDue on the couch,
Thornbury on the floor. The friend
swears that when they awakened in
the morning, Thornbury was on the
couch and LaDue was on the floor.
"This can't keep up much longer,"
says LaDue.
Nevertheless, they keep busy
enough so that neither of them rcom
plains very much.
"You may quote us as saying that
we are both very happy." says Thorn-
bury thoughtfully.
LaDue's biggest problem right now
is finding a title for his prize-win-
ning Hopwood novel. The original
title, "No More With Me," is due forI
a change by the publishers.
Thornbury has a suggestion. He
wants to call it "No More For Me."
AVC Toee
New Memb>ers
The American Veterans Commit-
tee campus chapter will begin a mem-
bership drive tomorrow, its first an-
niversary on campus.
Information tables will be located
on the diagonal and in the Union to-
morrow, Tuesday and Wednesday.
New members may also sign up at
the weekly AVC Record Hop Wed-
nesdays at the League.
All members and interested stu-
dents will be welcome at the regular
weekly meeting held at 7:30 p.m.
Wednesday at the Union, Lorne Cook,
chairman, said.

Gargoyle Gods
C7 d I,/oi~iu
Of Magazine
Shinn stormed into the Gargoyle
office, his mouth foaming and his
eyes blazing. "McKinlay!" lie
screamed to the editor who was
mooing contentedly over the Under-
graetuate's Guide to Successful Stock
Raising, "do you realize the Gar-
goyle is coming out on November 4?",
McKinlay looked up in disdain.
"Of course I realize it. The busi-
ness manager told me. So there!"
"And do you realize," Shinn went
on heatedly, "that I have a story in
McKinlay sighed remorsemully.
"That can't be helped. People may
still buy it anyway, Relax !"
Associate Editor Shinn blushed a
violent red under his cold cream.
He raised his finger toward the
ceiling and assumed the role of an
Aristotle, so dear to all philosophy
"That's not the point," he thun-
dered. "The point is that we've had
hardly any publicity. We haven't
told the campus that the Gargoyle,
the finest college humor magazine in
greater Ann Arbor is coming out on
November 4!
"But," the editor laughed as he
straightened out one of Shinn's
Fauntleroy curls, "everyone knows'
that the Gargoyle enjoys a greater
circulation than the New Yorker in
Ann Arbor. All we have to do is tell
em it comes out on November 4 and
they'll buy it, see?"
