Christmas surprises for students
faced with the prospect of a mer-
A sampling of student opinion
on the diag last week revealed
that snow and tag days trailed
for second place as undesirable
gifts. One of the men queried re-
versed the trend on tags stating
that he was in favor of more tag
days. By printing up a supply of
tags, he managed to get enough
mony to do all his Christmas
The male segment of the popu-
lation indicated a resentment
against gifts of ties for Christ-
mas. Most of them agreed that
one should pick out his own ties
without the help of others.
One student expressed a dis-
like of an album of Christmas
carols by Dorothy Shay, explain-
ing that the singer was not able
to furnish the atmosphere for
traditional Yuletide songs.
Mittens were scorned by a num-
ber of women queried. The seven
or eight pairs which they had
accumulated during several
Christmases were enough to last
them for quite a while, they ex-
Local Disc Dealers Foresee
Record Christmas Carolling
By THOMAS PARSONS ,
The carols of Christmas will beI
heard in more of Ann Arbor's
homes and dorms this Noel sea-
son than in any year of the past.
That is the concensus of three
out of four local record dealers,
who, after an unsurpassed week-
long run on the classic Christ-
mas discs, have decided that-
musically speaking at least -
Christmas spirit is certainly not
lacking in Ann Arbor.
Classical records as a whole, in
fact, have at last begun to out-
Briton Hails Marshall
As 'Wonderful Santa'
LONDON, Dec. 13-(AP)-U.S.
Secretary of State Marshall is
"the most wonderful Santa Claus
the world has ever seen," accord-
ing to Cyril Osborne, conservative
member of Parliament.
"His plan is history's greatest
Christmas box," Osborne said in
a speech today at Market Rasen,
Lincolnshire, "England should
give the lead to Europe by express-
ing her thanks for this most as-
tonishing act of generosity, for
the Americans are tightening their
own belts to give away food they
have grown by the sweat of their
strip their jivey "brothahs' in
saleability, the record vendors add-
ed, with a distinct sigh of relief.
And a hitherto little known var-
iety-children's records-have al-
so been rapidly climbing toward
the top in popularity during the
An interesting innovation in

closely, you who are still wonder-

Jimmy Dec. 25-the introduction
of classics for children in specially
edited, much abridged albums
which are guaranteed to catch
the ear and heart almost of any
three to eight years old.
One dealer in classical records
amusingl yremarked that not in
months had he sold as much 'Mo-
zart' as has crossed his counter
since the Boston Symphony con-
cert last Tuesday. And taking
their cue from this something-
which attends every local concert
of unusual excellence, the local
dealers have already stocked up
on 'Messiah' albums, and are
sending in their orders for Myra
As one dealer maintains, "Mere-
ly providing Ann Arbor with a
portion of its musical diet, is as
much a pleasure as a job.
The problem of what to get
junior for Christmas has been
simplified by the efforts of book
publishers, t o y manufacturers
and child psychologists.
Lately, the children's books
have had much attention paid to
them, with special emphasis on
what the various age groups like.
The result can be seen in the
large assortment of books that
appeal to children. The local
book stores have pretty complete
stocks of all age levels.
According to Miss Hazel Keed-
le, of the Ann Arbor Public lib-
rary, the tots like stories about
things they know and about what
children of other lands do, while
the 9-13 group likes fairy tales
and pioneer stories. The favorites
of the junior high school crowd
are mysteries, dog and horse tales
and career stories.
Something new for the chil-
dren is the complete battery of
records for them. These are de-
lightful and offer Mother Goose,
Tuby the Tuby and most of the
children's classics. Some have
reading material accompanying
them and many are unbreakable.
These too are arranged by the
age groups they interest.
If you feel that a toy would be
more appreciated, art and con-
struction sets are highly recom-
mended and very popular with

of Christmas trees among the

No trees were revealed, but an

With the onslaught of such
events several of the men's houses

mas tree defense systems. For ex-

grenades, six electric burglar a-
larms and an hourly watch, ac-
cording to SAE sources.
