Oe Joudeje
This weekend houses are in a
state of financial embarrassment
after last week's J-Hop cavortings
arid for the most part will hold so-
cial affairs down to the record
dance level.
Victor Vaughan, however, is
;iaking an attempt at becoming
acquainted with some of the new
freshmen by holding an open-
house tonight from 8:30 p.m. to
midnight. The men have invited
Mosher, Jordan, and the nurses
from St. Joseph's Hospital to at-
tend the affair.
DANCING, PUNCH, and sand-
wiches are offered the guests plus
some fine entertainrent by the
men in the house. "The Three
Sharps," as the Vaughan House
trio calls itself, wil perform at
intermission time, as will some of
the more dramatically talented
members when they put on a skit
parodizing the radio programs of
our day.
Members of Phi Alpha Kappa
have planned a party in honor
of St. Valentine.
Intermission time will feature a
Valentine quiz show, with prizes
being offered to the highest
scorers. Even the refreshments
emit the holiday mood with heai't-
shaped ice cream and cookies,
cocoa, and heart-shaped candy.
Sounds good!

Michigan Union, Campus Ski Club
To Sponsor Excursion to Grayling

Although discussion of the new
administration building is a fre-
q uenttopic of conversation, prob-
ably the first complaint has been
lodged against the ad building's
self-service elevators.
But one Michigan coed, a senior
in music school, is well qualified
to pass judgment on the eleva-
tors. She spent a half hour in
one of them last Tuesday after-
noon-between the second and
third floors.
"IT ALL STARTED out of the
kindness of my heart," she ex-
plained. She had just entered the
elevator on the third floor and
pushed the first floor button when
a young man approached shout-
ing, "Hold the elevator!"
The doors had begun to close
so she obligingly pulled the red
knob marked stop. The elevator
stopped, but not until it was
comfortably settled between the
two floors.
Being fond of mechanical de-
vices, the marooned victim pushed
and pulled every knob, but the

elevator wouldn't respond. She
fially sounded the alarm; after a
brief but frightening interim she
heard voices on the floor above
shouting, "Are you there?"
"I THOUGHT that a rather su-
perfluous question," she stated
afterwards, "but I was glad to'
hear that someone was there."
The voices shouted directions to
her, telling her to be calm and as-I
suring her of her safety.
She then disproved all theo-
ries on female fear, by calmly
sitting down on the floor and
studying her French assign-
ment. After finishing the
French lesson, she again gave
the stop button a violent thrust.
The elevator slid gently down to
the second floor.
As she was gathering her books
There will be a meeting at 4
p.m. today at which time

game will be chosen. The game
will be held March 4.

tor and asked, "Going down to
"It's a bit stuffy in here," she
replied. "I think I'll walk."
Husband Trouble
By The Associated Press
Ever hear of Mrs. Pauline E.
Conlon of Richmond, Va.? Mrs.
Conlon, a dancing teacher, sued to
shed her 15th husband a couple of
years ago. She charged he
whacked her over the head with
"one of his artificial legs." The
suit later was withdrawn after the
gentleman left the state.
