Social Action

Swasbbucklifg Datons Seek
Members for Merry Crew

Reach for your guns folks. The
Dalton boys ride again.
There is no reward for their
capture, however, since the char-
ter members of the "Dalton Boys,"
Chuck Evans, Roger Gibbs, Arthur
(Chippey) Russell and Dick Gar-
ret are not wanted for any hein-
ous crimes.
Membership Qualifications
The "Dalton Boys," it will be
noted are University engineering
students capable of imbibing pro-
digious quantities of beer and
"cussing a blue streak." Anyone
possessing these outstanding qual-
ifications is eligible for member-
ship, according to Evans.
It all started when Evans, sta-
tioned in China while serving our
mutual uncle, had occasion to
make several trips to India. For

answer to the problem.
Arlynn Rosen-I think we as
students should lead the way in
fibting discrimination, but pick-
eting only provokes antagonism.
Ntore karm Than Good
William Carey, '49-I think a
move such as IRA's drive does
more harm than good. Picketing
is silly and stirs up resentment.
Warren Spalding, '51-If the
prosecuting attorney wants to get
after the barbers, that's all right,
but it's not for the general public
to tell the barbers how to run their
George Olson, '50-I think this
campaign will do much to make
people conscious of the issue in-
Marvin Nochman, '49-The IRA
ought to confine its efforts to
newspaper publicity - picketing
exerts too much pressure.
Joanne Christensen, '50-I be-
lieve they are going about it the
wrong way and won't accomplish
Harriet Krantz, '50-It's a won-
derful idea if it arouses interest.
They are going about it in the
right way and should also insti-
tute legal action.

srome reason, he found that the
country was a veritable paradise
for a bearded man. At times he
was forced to refuse the innumer-
able offers he received to carry
his bags and for free taxi trans-
Evans was so gratified that he
organized the "Dalton Boys" last
summer while at Camp Davis, the
University summer camp for ge-
ology and surveying students, in
Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
Beards and Sombreros
Here, accompanied by his three
desperado companions, Evans
made regular pilgrimages to town.
With their long beards and black
sombreros, they appeared like na-
tive prospectors to the townspeo-
ple who promptly dubbed them
the "Dalton Boys."
One traitor shaved his beard at
Camp Davis. Sentiment for a kan-
garoo court martial ran high, but
pressing demands on their time
prevented the trial, and the cul-
prit escaped with a probationary
The Daltons were not without
enemies. "Rock-busters," (a term
(f endearment engineers use to
refer to geology students) often
became tangled in their beards.
A feud grew in which the Daltons
were the ringleaders.
Once some of the coeds study-
ing geology at the camp, sat in
on one of the Daltons bull-ses-
sions. They never returned. The
engineers outdid themselves in
their cussing.
The Razor's Edge
When our heroes returned to
Ann Arbor, there was a furious
dash for razors between the boys
and their wives. Now they're
beardless but still alive.
Each Friday, if you are observ-
ant, you will see the original Dal-
tons, and the comrades who have
joined them, on campus in black
sombreros. Any of them caught
without his distinctive chapeau is
sentenced to pay for the beer they
drink when they hold their Fri-
day meetings in a local German
Here they cuss and recuss the
mysteries and nuances of engi-
neering problems and rehash the
days at camp.
As a tribute to their generosity
and willingness to buy beer Profs.
Harry Bouchard, George M.
Bleekman and Robert C. Cole have
been named honorary Daltons.
