Solution to Very Grave Problems
Offered by Union Talent Shows


There is now one less student at
the University of Michigan.
An anonymous person has
passed on to the great beyond. The
funeral procession, carrying an
expensive mahogany coffin, was
seen by many shocked students
between 11 a.m. and noon last
Wednesday. Leading the entour-
age was the four piece Zeta Psi
band dressed in "morning" clothes
and led by Hal Beam.
Their dirges threw an atmos-
phere of funeral gloom over the
entire campus. In fact, the inci-
dent caused such gloom that sev-
eral coeds were seen shedding
tears in their-coke.
STHE DECEASED is now buried
-on the mall along with political
discussions. His case is a sad one.
It seems that the poor fellow was
so wrought up at not being able
tdisplay his talents at the Un-
ion Talent Shows that he threat-
ened to do something drastic.
Of course no one took him
seriously when he threatened to
leap from Burton Tower, but
he was true to his word. His
lifeless cadaver was found early
Wednesday morning lying hori-
zontally on the terra firma. It
was not a pretty picture; not one
