Willow Commuters Praise
Latest Bus Additions
By LEON JAROFF
"A bus named Desire!" exclaimed an enthusiastic commuter as
he stood on a Willow Village loading platform early Monday morning.
For, gliding up to a stop, was a large, streamlined, maize and
blue bus. Many of the Villagers hesitated before boarding the. vehicle.
"IS THIS FOR US?" asked one incredulously. "It must be a mir-
age," said another. "Nothing that good could be true!"
But the gleaming bus was indisputably real, for it was one of
the eight new 34-passenger busses purchased and placed in srvice
by the University.
The new vehicles have replaced eight busses of similiar size leased
from and returned to the Federal Government, leaving 30 busses in
the University fleet.
* * *
HOW THE WILLOW VILLAGES feel about their new transporta-
tion is well illustrated by the behavior of the lines at the Ann Arbor
loading station at East and North University. Whenever an old bus
is loading, the line holds back and students look over their shoulder
hoping for the appearance of a new one.
Interviewed at the loading station, Leonard Kaminski, '50,1
happily compared the old and new transportation. "When riding
in back of the old busses, you could see all the passengers' heads
bouncing up and down in unison. When the front wheels hit a
bump, the rear of the bus would bounce."
"Compared to them, the new ones are as smooth as silk," he added.
THE FEMININE TOUCH was added by Mrs. Pauline Sundell, '51
PH. "I haven't had the opportunity to ride on a new bus yet, but I'm
really looking forward to it," she said. "The color is so attractive,"
she explained.
Two of the drivers, Robert Goss, '49, and Milton Moxie '50E,
were impressed by the absence of rattle from the new vehicles.
Goss noticed that passengers seemed happier after the 20 minute
trip.
Moxie, who still drives one of the older busses, wasn't too dis-
satisfied over his plight. "The old ones aren't bad-once you get used'
to them," he said philosophicall.

Many undernourished,

war

weary students of France felt the
friendly hand of Michigan men
and women this year through the
World Students Service Fund.
The student rest center at Com-
bloux received half of the $3,100
collected here last spring, accord-
ing to R. J. Fairgraves, Assistant
Secretary of WSSF.
*' **
THE WSSF CENTER, estab-
lished after the liberation of
France to assist students who
worked in the underground, or had
similar war experiences, houses 60
or 65 students at a time.
The students there now are
those whose whole physical and
mental condition has been twist-
ed and broken in their adoles-
cent years during the war.
These men and women who are
trying to pick up the threads of
their education after years of near
starvation an ddanger each get a
month's rest at Combloux.
'. * X
NOW THAT THE fighting war
is farther in the background, the
center is getting younger students
who spent their childhood in the
midst of war and are now prepar-
ing to start college.
A letter from Fairgraves, com-
mended Michigan students for
their participation in last spring's
program.
Remaining collections have been
turned over to the General Fund.
