With the increasing population
of masculine material around
campus, the "M" coed has had the
chance to become quite indepen-
dent, and as a result only the up-
to - date activities - of - the - week
man can boast "It'.s a Date."
Thus appropriately titled is the
new weekly guide of Ann Arbor
events, "It's a Date," which has
circulated around campus this se-
mester. With a different campus
scene on the cover each week to
beckon observers, "It's a Date"
informs the U. student in pamph-
let form as to what's what for the
coming week in a cleverly infor-
mal, and yet informative, way.
"'I missed the dance.
I missed the show.
'I never know just where to
Well, here's a tip
To:you, my friend-
With 'It's a Date' your wor-
ries end," says the guide.
In the corner of the last page
is the name of the creator of the
weekly activity tid-bits, Jack
Trustman of 1037 Olivia. Jack, a
business administration senior, is
an "eager advertising man" on the
side, and plans on advertising or
sales promotion work after col-
Jack began his extra-curricu-
lar activities by printing college
desk blotters. Last March, how-
ever, it was suggested to Jack
by an Ann Arbor merchant that
he print coming weekly events
so that students and townspeo-
ple wouldn't miss the activities.
During the summer Jac con-
tacted an artist in Pontiac and
had engravings made for the
cover, and thus was ready to begin
when the '47 .fall term rolled
Jack and several other men,
who help to contact ads, distrib-
ute 3,000 copies per week to
dorms, campus buildings, and
fraternity and sorority houses.
Jack expects the calling card of
"It's a Date" to increase after the
first of the year when a different
campus coed's smile will enhance
the cover each week.
"Men," says Jack, "we know
you're very fond of that prize snap
of your li'l lovely, but leave us not
be stingy about the matter."

Although the primary purpose
of the booths will be to make the
purchase of small necessities less
expensive and more convenient for
coeds, any profits accruing will be
donated to the fund for winteriza-
tion of the Fresh Air Camp.
Booths will begin operating
this week in Jordan, under the
direction of Dorothy Carris, and
in Barbour, under the manage-

plan is still being considered in
other dormitories.
Booth managers and clerks, who
are chosen from the residents of
each dorm, will receive League ac-

work. Helpers will work in shifts.
Potential managers in dorms
still considering the plan are Dor-
