MICHIGAN'S immortality is for-
ever assured and the busts of
Bean and Bean will grace the Halls
of Fame-that is as soon as Wash-
ington receives our report that a
vital post-war shortage has been
solved and prosperity is at hand.
We have decided to reveal the story
of our discovery to the world before
a grateful public beats its path to
our door with repulsive financial re-
Armed with safari helmets, 2
dozen handkerchiefs, sun glasses,
binoculars, and a $1.00 official
program, reputed twice as bene-
ficial as thesmediocre 50 cent edi-
tion, we pushed our way through
throngs of perspiring football en-
thusiasts toward the upper-class-
men's section of the Michigan sta-
THE LOCATION of section 33
proved a poignant shock. With a
sweltering sun determinedly follow-
ing us, we finally prepared to flop
into seats 14 and 15 in the mythical
shade of the Northern goal posts.
However, by the adroit crossing of
legs and tilting of thighs, we eventu-
ally managed to bring our two bodies
into harmonious communion with
seat 15. (Fourteen had shrunk out
of existence-some grad veteran,
grown fat on war profits, no doubt.)
By adjusting helmet and sun-
glasses and making judicious
swipes at his brow with a handker-
chief, my husband discovered that
what he had Considered sunspots
could be distinguished as a ser-
ies of Lilliputian figures on the
field, drawn up, he perceived by
adjusting his binoculars to dis-
tance plus (hitherto reverently re-
served for luscious blondes), "in
THE END of the first quarter
found my astigmatic orbes
bleared. "Darling,"said my husband.
"there's only one pair of field
bleared. "Darling," said my husband,
sides, 'I know more about football.
I'll watch the game while you rest."
This seemed an excellent suggestion,*
and I settled back to enjoy my first
legitimate stick. of post-war gum.
After an hour I began to feel
judiciously under the bench with a
mind to reclamation. Then I made
the tremendous discovery which
will bring us fame. There are
mountains, veritable stalactites of
gum under those benches! At once,
I realized here was our chance to
avert the coming depression. This
gum could be collected at the end
of each game, purified, and recon-
verted into a permanent gum to
supply a starved market.
PRODUCTIVITY of other items
would increase-cigars, vacuum
cleaners, diapers. America and the
world would be on the road to pros-
perity! I notified my husband of the
idea at once, and as the game was
already over, we left immediately.
Well enough of this-sufficient to
say we have talked to rubber ex-
perts (who prefer to remain anony-
mous) and they agree re-vitalized
gum will save the nation.
Vital Post-War Shortage Solved
By 'U' Students Behind Qoal Post
By BLANCHE BERGER
"Try to laugh on the outside -
cause it's crowded on the inside"
could well be the theme song of this
campus during meal times. The in-
terminable lines at registration, for
Ohio State football tickets, and the
Willow Run bus are small compared
to the hordes of people all trying to
jam into any available hamburg
stand for lunches and dinners. The
milling crowds that arrive in town
for football games do not add any
brightness to the situation.
The only thing to do to alleviate
this state of affairs is to work out
an infallible system - if possible.
Some desperate students have band-
ed together, bought their own sup-
plies and set up light housekeeping.
However, for those who can't cook
or open cans, still other solutions
can be found.
A Friend Indeed
Very often students have friends
who come early (say 2 or 3 hours)
and save a choice spot. At such times
ten or fifteen people are seen crowd-
ed together at a table for four, eat-
ing from everyone else's plate.
Some have resorted to ordering
while standing, in the hopes that by
the time the food is brought, a table
will be secured. Another trick is to
make friends with the owners and
waitresses, so that special attention
and courtesy will be extended.
However even when a student is
among those fortunate to get in-
side a restaurant, and even to a ta-
ble, he is met with the glares of o-
thers left standing in aisles who are
pushed back anci forth by the dash-
ing waitresses. These hungry vul-
tures stand ready to grab a seat as
soon as the dessert is served, or
someone gets up to get a pack of cig-
In spite of these conditions, res-
taurant owners have tried to coop-
erate in every possible way to ac-
commodate the students in the
quickest, most efficient manner.
Duringthe present meat shortage
they have also tried to vary the menu
to as great an extent as possible. In
order to be fair 'regular' customers
will get top priority.
Students Can Help
The students themselves can help
solve the problem by coming a little
before or after rush hours whenever
possible. Lingering over a last cig-
arette while others wait, reading the
paper or doing homework at the ta-
ble, changing orders, and visiting
with friends all help to slow the serv-
Perhaps the crowded situation as
it stands today will be improved
soon, but until then there is still one
suggestion that few people have ever
thought of. That is, eliminating the
habit of eating entirely. However,
there are too many who would ob-
ject to this suggestion-all of which
leaves us back where we started.
It's "To Each His Own" this week with popular
Eddy Howard's band . . . or perhaps you're more
interested in oldies 'like "hum-boogie" and "Well
All Right!" featuring the Andrews Sisters or "We
Three" and "Java Jive" by the original Ink Spots
. . . Another memory snatcher is T. Dorsey's fine
album containing "I'll Never Smile Again," "Star-
dust," "Song Of India," and "I'm Getting Senti-
mental Over You." Make it one of your major
vices to stop in and see us at the - . .
