Veterans To Hold
Mid-Week ance
In League Today
The sixth in the series of regular
weekly dances sponsored by the
American Veterans Committee will be
held from 2 to 5 p.m. today in the
League Ballroom.
The dance will be informal and noI
date will be necessary. Dancing will
be to records and the League coke
bar will be open for refreshments.
Decorations will be the same as those
for the Campus Casbah.
These mixer dances are held every
Wednesday afternoon in an effort
to help veterans meet women stu-
dents. More than 500 students have
been present at previous dances. Open
to all men and women students, the
dances provide a mid-week activity
which the campus formerly lacked.
The AVC originated the series of
dances because they felt the acute
need foV a place on campus where
veteran and women students may
meet in an informal atmosphere. The
dances have become a campus insti-
tution, and students are urged to
drop in after classes.

FOR RICH, GLOWING PROSE, replete with powerful imagery and spark-
ling with original phraseology, I commend the sportswriters of The
After a confusing season spent with the sporIs page and an icebag,
I have discerned several cardinal principles lurking behind all that
rr0 THE uninitiated, it mighl, seem tha l w hlfoot ball uly ers do most of
the time is run, throw balls, kick them, r tackle each other. However,
no sportswriter worth his salt i or his byline, on The Daily) sees it this way.
Football players do not run; they gallop, barry the leather (or pig-
skin-never football), lug it, grind out yards, whip, or possibly bullet
through, speed, or scamper. Usually they scamper.
THEY never throw balls and seldom pass. They loft, pitch, flip, toss,
arch, or heave. No one catches passes, either; the players gather the
leather in, take the heave, snare or grab aerials.
Maybe it's the altitude in the pressbox. Clark Baker's picturesque
account of the Michigan-Minnesota game distinctly says that "the
Gopher forwards reared up and threw back two Michigan thrusts in-
side the Minnesota 30 before the visitors could break the ice." The ice
confused me until I remembered that it was probably cold in Minne-
sota. Two paragraphs later, Mr. Baker states that "the Wolverine back-
field let only three tosses leak through out of the 14 the Gophers tried."
He doesn't say who took his finger out of the dike.
I THINK Clark has a subconscious yearning for some power station. He
felt that "Michigan State couldn't hang onto the leather long enough to
generate a sustained drive of any length," while at the Minnesota game de-
clared that Bumps Elliott "provided the spark that kept the Wolverine
,dynamo clicking." Engineers might object to this last statement, but I feel
that a creative artist like Clark Baker can afford to use a little poetic license.
If Keats can have Cortez discovering the Pacific, Ie can have a dynamo
powered by sparks.
I'm starting a little collection to present a dictionary of synonyms to the
sports staff, and I look forward to the day when we will read that someone
consummated the triumph by lassoing the hog epidermis and prancing
across the finish line for a sextupler.
