Candy Booth
By Students
League Drives Committee
Sponsors U-Hall Store
Under Coed's Management
"Who do we thank for this?"
is by far the most prevalent ques-
tion posed by U. Hall shortcutters
as they stop to purchase the day's
supply of peanuts and cigarettes
at the newly-established, student-
run candy store.
The booth, open from 9 a.m. to
4 p.m. every day, except Sunday,
is part of a two-fold program in-
novated by the Leagu'e D:ives
Committee to provide students
with small necessities and inci-
dentals more conveniently and at
lower costs.
Volunteers Queried
Unsuspecting volunteer workers
at the booth have been pinned
down more than once by the
query, "You don't mean the Uni-
versity is paying you for this?"
One engineering student, was
convinced that partiality had
again been shown to "the Lit
School slackers." He added that
he knew of a suitable nook in
West Engine, if the workers cared
to change their location.
Student Likes
Trends in student tastes seem
to run definitely in the line of
two-cent suckers and peppermint
lifesavers, reports Joyce Atchi-
son, manager of the booth. "Those
two items sell out every day to
the tune of 350 of each," she add-
When queried as to the general
reception by students of the store,
Miss Atchison asserted that "if a
waiting line at 9 a.m. every day is
any indcation, the inmovation is
a success. Of course, our best
customers," she added, "are al-
ways the ever-present ticket sell-
ers there in the hall."
Booth Is Extension
The U. Hall booth is an exten-
sion of the candy booth plan al-
ready established in women's dor-
mitories. Each store is stocked
and supervised by a manager un-
der the auspices of the League
Drives Committee. The dormitory
booths are manned by volunteer
residents, who receive League ac-
tivity credits as well as business
experience for their work.
Any profits accruing from the
newly-started businesses will be
donated to the fund for winter-
ization of the University Fresh
Air Camp.
