basic items in 16 of the city's 60
foodstores, they have established
an average budget for low cost
food, moderate cost food, and lib-
eral cost food items.
The students, with the aid of
two Ann Arbor housewives with
previous experience in the survey
field, also determined food costs
for families of two, four, and sev-
en persons.
Their results have been com-
pared with a similar survey re-
cently taken in Detroit, and found
in most cases to be one or two
per cent higher than those find-
Results of the researcn show
that a woman between the ages
of 16 and 20 needs to pay be-
tween $4.62 and $6.10 each week
for food, depending on where it
is purchased and which quality is
bought. A man of the same age
range will need from $5.99 to $8.-
Families of two must pay be-
tween $11.09 and $17.12, while a
group of four need from $18.67 to
$26.41 a week for food.
The researchers, selected from
sociology classes taught by Dr.
Ronald Freedman, chose both in-
dependent and chain stores from
all sections of the city, and incor-
porating all income levels. They
surveyed specific grades of meat
and produce, and standard sizes
of containers.
Car Presented
To Mrs. Yost
Christmas Gift Given
By Friend of Coach
Mrs. Fielding Yost just received
the biggest Christmasnpresent
she's ever had-a brand new car.
The car was given to her yes-
terday by Fred Zeder, a long-time
friend of the late Wolverine coach.
In giving Mrs. Yost her French-
blue Christmas package, Zeder
said to her, "The coach was a good
friend of mine, and I'm going to
make sure you have transporta-
tion as long as I'm alive."'
Mrs. Yost was pleased by the
gift, which will replace a car given
the Yosts on their golden wedding
anniversary in 1940. She has one
misgiving, hodiever-she doesn't
know how to drive.

Santas' Local
Seeks Action
Local 395, Union of Santa
Clauses, filed suit today against
the Gargoyle, campus humor
magazine, for conspiracy in re-
straint of trade.
"The Gargoyle," exclaimed Noel

The Gargoyle staff, whose com-
bined assets total 2 cents, did not
seem noticeably affected by the
suit. When approached by a re-
porter, Thom Strope, Managing
Editor, smiled affably.
Strope Remarkably Calm
"We have a magazine to put out,
son," he drawled to the reporter.
"It's the Christmas Gargoyle, and
it goes on sale Monday. Why
should we worry about this asi-
nine litigation? Do you remem-
ber what Patrick Henry said?"
The reporter replied that he
Strope retorted that he didn't
either, but that it didn't really
matter, "I intend to fight them on
their own ground," he bawled.
"Come Christmas Eve, every
member of the Gargoyle staff will
be 'watching for Santa Clauses,
running from house to house, and
yelling, To arms! The redcoats
are coming'!"
