Free -Guess at Squirrel's Nut Cache
Given With Each Ticket Purchased

By MARY ANN HARRIS
Matchin' plaid wool shirts for
the lucky woodsman and his gal
will be the prizes for the annual
Paul Bunyan guessing contest,
reveals the Foresters Club, spon-
sor of Paul Bunyan "formal" to
be held Saturday, Jan. 8 in Wa-
terman Gym.
At the U Hall Foresters' Station
where dance tickets are being
sold from 9 a. m. to 4 p. m. daily,
this year's committee has in-
stalled "Stuffy" the squirrel who
has hoarded a goodly sum of nuts
for the bleak winter days.
With each ticket goes a chance
to guess how many hours it will
takie the squirrel to bury the
acorns collected in a bell jar at
the rate of one nut an hour.
THIS ALL boils down to guess-
ing how many nuts are in the jar.
The latest reports on the compe-
tition is that guesses have ranged
from under 300 to over 3000. The
novel prizes for the contest win-
ners will remain on display this
week.
In order to give every dance
customer a fair chance a slide
rule will also be available to
help calculite "Stuffy's" nut
store.
The nut situation, however, has
been recently complicated by the
appearance of acorn worms in the
bell jar. The foresters are now
speculating on who will get the
nuts first, "Stuffy" or the worms.
Hillel Festival
I.Z.F.A. and Hillel will pre-
sent the annual Chanukah feb-
tival at th Foundation from
6 p. m. to 10 p. m. today.
The celebration will center
around a variety of booths,
holiday games, prizes and col-
orful decorations. Refresh-
ments will also be served.

BECAUSE OF the worm situa-
tion, ticket chairman, John Ger-
lach, advises everyone to get
their tickets and make an early
guess because, "there is no tell-
ing how hungry the worms will
get and the contest will have to
be judged on the original nut
count made by Art Ennis, dance
chairman."
The presence of these worms
is really a scientific phenome-
non that is baffling the fores-
ters, according to Ennis.
Normally the acorn worm cud-
dles up in an acorn in early fall.
snoozes all winter and wakes up
in the spring when they. have a
free breakfast on the nut.
FOR THE MOST "informal
formal of the year" decorations
and refreshments are literally on
a "big scale." Over 100 thirty foot
trees from the Michigan wood-
men's own forest will give Water-
man Gym a real woody touch.
The refreshments ox cider,
donuts, cokes and apples will
be abundant if refreshment
chairman, big Joe Link, has
anything to do with it, assures
the foresters, referring to
capacity.
As in past years "normal" dress
will consist of blue (black or red)
jeans, wooly shirts, boots and
other accessories that go to make
the well dressed woodsman.
THE "FIDDLERS" for this af-
fair wil be Benny Strong and
his boys from Chicago. Strong
is the maestro of that popular
recording, "That Certain Party"
now ranking fifth on the weekly
Juke Box Poll of the Music Cor-
poration of America. Strong's
Chicago appearances include the
Hotel Stevens, Northwestern Uni-
versity and the University of
Chicago.
