THE IWI I CIIIGAkiD AI Y P AAE FJVf

fssembly Will Give
Time Out Benefit

Dance

Tomorrow

Tickets To Be Available Today at 'U' Hall;
Proceeds of Affair Will Help Purchase
Needed Equipment for Fresh Air Camp

Assembly's all-campus semi-formal
dance, "Time Out," will be presented
for benefit from 8:30 p.m. to mid-
night tomorrow in the Intramural
Building, and will feature the music
of Ted Weems and his orchestra.
A limited number of tickets for the
affair will go on sale at 10 a.m. to-
day in Room 2, University Hall. All
proceeds of the event will go to the
Fresh Air Camp Fund, and will be
utilized to purchase needed equip-
ment for the summer camp, and to
extend facilities for student use dur-
ing the year.
Weems' orchestra, formerly with
the Fibber McGee and Molly pro-
gram, has been reorganized since
the war, and features vocalists '
Shirley Richards and Larry Noble.
Perhaps the best-known member of
the band is Tiny Martin, who spe-
cializes in novelty numbers on the
bass. His rendition of "Flight of
the Bumblebee" has been compared
to that of concert violinists, and
he's the only musician in the busi-
ness able to play his bass like a
violin, held under the chin.
The list of patrons for the affair,
as announced by Sue Smith and
Phyllis Pettit, co-chairmen is as fol-
lows: Pres., and Mrs. A. G. Ruthven,
Vice-Pres. and Mrs. M. L. Niehuss,
Dean J. A. Bursley, Dean and Mrs. J.

By LOIS KELSO
MUCH EFFORT has been devoted lately to trying to pin the beef shortage
on somebody, some blaming the OPA, some blaming the :neat ;>ackers,
some calling it a British plot to boost the sales of Australian mutton and oth-
ers tracing it to a Communist scheme to undermine our American 'institu-
tions. One of my closer relatives is all for exercising the spirit of. Franklin
Roosevelt and asking some leading questions.
All these explanations seem to me rather superficial. I believe we
must probe more deeply before we discover the fundamental cause of
the trouble.
FIRST, we must ask ourselves where beef comes from, or used to come
from. The answer to that one is cattle. No one has organized the cat-
tle yet, so a non-producing strike on their part cannot be tIhe answer to our
problem.
Next, we must ask where cattle come from. The right answer is
way out West, where men are men. The West is still there, bless the
Texas Chamber of Commerce, so the reason for our difficulty must lie
elsewhere.
NOW WE ASK, who raises those cattle? Here, I think, we have the ex-
planation we have been looking for, because cowboys raise those cattle-
you know, strong, silent, manly people who roll their own cigarettes and
drink more than the Michigan college boy says he can.
An enterprising, forward-looking type if there ever was one, the
American cowboy knows when he's well off. With the entertainment
situation what it is, anyone who can twirl a rope, subordinate his per-
sonality to a horse, or just look virile is nowhere if he sticks around a
bunch of cattle.
WHAT NORMAL, red-blooded young American would expose himself to
' the discomforts of an outdoor life when he could be sitting around a
nice warm movie studio, riding around a well-lit arena for half an hour a
day at a New Jersey rodeo, or making passes at the guests in a'dude ranch?
A bright boy with the right press agent can do a lot better by the
wife and kiddies endorsing breakfact food than he can ruining.the shape
of his legs on a horse, and Scotch does more than malt can to justify
God's ways to man.
The long-striding, quick-drawing individuals who make Saturday
matinees such a risk must have come from someplace. Things like that
don't just happen. Apparently the boys saw the path leading from drudgery
to fame and they went that-a-way.
I on't know why nobody else thought of this first, but by now I'm con-
vinced that the blame for the beef shortage rests on the money-mad Amer-
ican cowboy, and it couldn't happen to a nicer bunch.
