Club To Begin

The WAA Hockey Club will begin
regular meetings at 4:30 p.m. Tues-
day on Palmer Field.
The group, which is open to both
beginners and advanced players, will
meet every Tuesday and Thursday as
long as weather permits. Instruc-
tion will be offered, and Miss Ander-
son, faculty sponsor of the club, will
be on hand for coaching at all times,
The first meetings of Hockey Club
will be devoted to drill in technique
and to practice games; later in the
season tournament play within the
club will be organized. Special games
with University High School and
with nearby colleges are to be ar-
All women on campus interested
in playing hockey who were unable
to attend the organization meeting
this week are urged to call Barbara
McNeill, manager, at 2-4471. Those
planning to play on Tuesday are
asked to check out equipment in the
WAB just before practice.
With twenty-six members already
registered, the club's membership is
still growing. Miss McNeill states,
"All women on campus, regardless of
class or experience, are eligible for
the Hockey Club. We'd like to see
them out for hockey this year. Those
women who have had exeperience in
coaching or officiating hockey are
especially urged to join the club's ac-
Shortage of Food
Slims Coed Form
According to most reliable sources,
trim hips and slender waistlines will
be the keynotes of the Michigan
coeds' figures this semester.
This is not on ultimatum deliever
by Ann Arbor corsetieres, but an un-
avoidable conclusion we are forced
to draw from reports of University
Even pre-war scarcities, such as
butter, which are now available to
the public, are so expensive that
purchase problems still exist. Res-
taurants, league houses, and sorori-
ties, are faced with equal difficulties,
and all have resorted to concocting
ingenious substitutes in cheese souf-
fles, vegetable, dinner, and fish
Students could well echo Dickens'
cry from The Chimes, "Give us bet-
ter food when we're a-working for
our lives." But we fear that such la-
ments would go unheeded. Might im-
press your English prof, though.
Of course, we can always ration-
alize. With the trimming down of
feminine forms, crowded dorm condi-
tions may be somewhat alleviated.
Four slender women in a converted
quadruple room will be a good deal
more compatible than four hefty
Besides, Joyce Kilmer offers some
"food for thought" in his Apology,
with the theory that gastronomical
frustration sharpens the wit:
"For nothing keeps a poet
In his high singing mood
Like unappeasablehunger
For unattainable food."
We could even suggest that the na-
tional Treasury Department take
note of our fine . example, and try
cutting down on their figures.

THE SEVEN LABORS of Hercules were as northing compared to the labors
of the Michigan cheerleader. Look what those boys go through-they
shout themselves hoarse, do cartwheels, flips, and generally act pretty silly,
all in the hope of attracting the attention of a mob of people who are far
too much occupied in blowing soap bubbles, searching for friends or rela-
tions, explaining the game to the rest of the stadium, mentally composing
a scorching letter to The Daily about the poor student seats, or just quietly
passing out, to give them a glance.
For years now the boys have been trying to put over one of those
question and answer affairs that go over so well in high school-sort of
a Socratic dialogue, full of enthusiastic agreement on both sides. They
probably sat up nights putting this together. Despite all their efforts,
the cheer is still being received with thunderous apathy, as are most of
their efforts.
IN A LAST-DITCH attempt to drag some enthusiasm out of the student
body, the cheerleaders and the Student Legislature, still in there pitch-
ing, are sponsoring a YELL Contest. The winner will receive a free trip to
the Ohio State game and credit at campus bookstores.
For those who wish to be in good standing with Ann Arbor's Finest,
and for the cheerleaders themselves, I have a Helpful Thought.
PERHAPS the overwhelming lack of response in the past has been caused
by an overrating of the powers of Michigan students. They can speh
Michigan, M-I-C-H-I-G-A-N-Fight-team-fight, very nicely. In fact, they
have it down pat. But when confronted with anything more abstruse, they
become confused and relapse into abashed silence.
In future the yell-leaders might do well to consider the abilities of theft
audience, and I do mean audience. Maybe alphabet blocks would help.
