Ice Carving Displays To Be
Big Part of Winter Carnival


To Play

Ice carving displays to be erect-
ed by houses and dormitories, will
be an integral part of the 1949
Michigan Winter Carnival.
In past Winter Carnivals, this
has never been done, but since the
ice displays at the Dartmouth
Winter Carnivals have added so
much more color, the Central
Committee is hoping that sorori-
ties, fraternities and dormitories
will participate.
These ice displays will be done
on the same basis as Home-coming
displays. Everyone will have an
equal opportunity, since displays
of this kind have never been done
on campus. They will be a real
challenge to the ingenuity and
constructive ability of students.
There has been much com-
ment that displays of this type
are beyond the scope of con-
struction, but in reality they
should be easier to construct
than our traditional Homecom-
ing ones, according to the com-
There are two general methods
of construction: (1) making a
rough statue of ice blocks with
snow packed on for finishing
touches, and (2) using a wooden
frame with snow packed over it.
Water is then sprayed to give the
statue a smooth finish.
These displays should be
simple. Many of them at other
university winter carnivals are
beautifully done, but thousands
of man hours were put on them.
The displays at the Michigan
Winter Carnival will be judge on

originality and construction, not
on complexity and size.
The Central Committee wishes
to know which houses :re inter-
ested in entering displays; In or-
der to have the house name on the
program, house representatius
must contact Mary C a r ol y n
Wright, 4089, or 5718, by Friday
Soph Cabaret pictures taken at
the dress rehearsal may be seen in
the Undergraduate Office of the
Orders must be in by tomorrow.
Each picture will cost 75 cents.
Women's Judiciary Council an-
nounced that sign out sheets for
the week beginning Dec. 13 are to
be handed in Monday, Jan. 3 in
the regular manner.

Contest Winners
To Receive Shirts
Benny Strong, "the young man
who sings the old songs," will be
the featured maestro for the an-
nual Paul Bunyan "formal" to be
held Saturday, Jan. 8 in Water-
man Gym.
Previously starred in many Chi-
cago and countrywide engage-
ments, including the Stevens Hotel
and Northwestern University,
Strong and his orchestra empha-
size "hotel-type" sweet music with
a lift.
His counter-point introductions
and endings and danceable tem-
pos are instantly recognized onthe
air and serve as a familiar trade-
mark for the Strong brand of mu-
Unlike similiar orchestras,
Strong knows the value of enter-
tainment features. Comedy, en -
semble, singing and novelty num-
bers will be provided by this group
for the season's most rollicking
dance. Members of this orchestra
are capable of presenting an en-
tire floorshow by themselves.
cal career at the age of 13 when
he was invited to sing at a politi-
cal rally in Chicago. He was of-
fered a job as the "Singing News-
boy," urging theatre-goers to sing
along with slides of old favorites.
Popularity of the well-loved
old songs was so great that
Strong decided to make a career
of it and has since become
known as a singer of old songs.
However, he is up to the moment
also with his recording of "That
Certain Party" now ranking fifth
on the weekly Juke Box Poll of
the Music Corporation of America.
OTHER FEATURES of the blue
jeans dance this year will include
the annual nut guessing contest
open to every ticket purchaser.
"Stuffy," the squirrel who has
hoarded a goodly sum of nuts
for the winter days, offers his
collection to be counted by every
one who buys a dance ticket at
the U Hall Forester's Station
where tickets are being sold from
9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.
Prizes for the most accurate
guess will be matching plaid wool
shirts for the lucky woodsman and
his date. At latest reports the
guesses have ranged from under
300 to 3,000 nuts in the bell jar.
ments for the big woodman's visit
will be added attractions. Over 100
thirty-foot trees will provide a lit-
eral forest in Waterman Gym for
the occasion.
Cider, doughnuts, cokes and ap-
ples will be served in amounts in
accordance with a woodsman's ap-
petite. Every couple will be fur-
ther lured to the dance with the
prospects of free black and white

Campus Christmas spirit has
been manifested this week in a va-
riety of holiday projects carried
out by sororities and women's resi-
dence halls.
Adelia Cheever, Alpha Delta Pi,
Kappa Alpha Theta, Alpha Phi,
Pi Beta Phi, Gamma Phi Beta and
Delta Gamma each exchanged
gifts at their annual Christmas
After the gifts had been dis-
tributed and the names of the giv-
ers had been guessed, the presents,
consisting mostly of toys, were re-
wrapped and taken to the chil-
dren at the University Hospital.
These houses also contributed their
Christmas trees and other decora-
tions to bring a touch of Christ-
mas to hospital wards.
Couzens Hall was another donor
of gifts to the Hospital and. Chi
Omega contributed gifts and a
EACH WOMEN attending the
annual Christmas dinner at Mosh-
er Hall Tuesday night brought a
gift suitable for a child. These
gifts were then distributed among
Ann Arbor children by the dorm's
Stockwell Hall has been sup-
porting a French school
throughout the year. Extra
money was sent for the holidays,
so that children of the school
might have Christmas presents.
As their Christmas project,
Martha Cook women have con-
tributed money to the fund that
will be used to buy a television set
for the local Veterans' Readjust-
ment Center.
IN ADDITION to sending pres-

ents to children at the University
Hospital, Helen Newberry resi-
dents contributed clothing to help
brighten Christmas for needy Ann
Arbor families.
Alpha Chi Omega held a
Christmas party Monday night
for the children of their Ann Ar-
bcr -alumnae. Delta Delta Delta
gave a party for ten children.
An unsuspecting date, upon
calling at the house, was imme-
diately whisked off to return in
a few minutes in the guise of Santa
Claus. According to all reports, he
played the role very well.

The all-campus Military Ball,
one of Winter's social highlights,
is already in the formulative stage.
Preparations for the gala affair,
to take place March 18th, have
been discussed at three meetings.
Jack Waters, student in the Ad-
vanced Infantry class, has been
working as chairman of the Mili-
tary Ball group. Head naval spon-
sor is Commander Markeson Var-
land, while Captain D. H. Merten
has assumed duties as combined
Army-Air Force sponsor.

IT TAKES big companies to turn out
.and service equipment like this. At
International Harvester we have the
idea that when a company grows be-
yond a certain size, it becomes a social
as well as business institution. And
that as a social institution it has cer-
tain well-defined responsibilities.-I
So we like to think that this picture
is an illustration of applied social
science. The employes built the truck,
but it would not have been built if
the customers had not wanted to buy
it, nor would it have been built if the

be productively employed. Today we
have more than 90,000 employes. Be-
fore the war we had 60,000. The aver-
,age straight-time hourly earnings of
our factory employes have increased
92.6% since 1941.
For our customers, it means pro-
ducing the best possible goods and
services at the lowest possible cost.
Our margin of profit on sales today is
one-third less than in 1941.
For our stockholders, it means a
fair return for the savings they have
invested in our Company. Dividends

The Company as a whole had prof-
its, after taxes, in 1947, of 5% cents
from each dollar of sales. We believe
most people regard this as a reason-
able rate of profit.
We know it is our continuing abil-
ity to earn a reasonable profit that
has made it possible for International
Harvester, again in this past year, to
serve more people-customers, em-
ployes, and stockholders in greater
measure than ever before.
Profits mean progress for everyone.
