INTELLECTUALS' 'NIGHT OUT':
'Bull Ring' Features Company, Conversation, Beer

By HERBERT H. CHESTON
"Banish joys and companion-
ship and you'll banish all the
world" is the maxim of the Uni-
versity Bull Ring where good com-
pany gets together for intellectual
conversation and beer every Fri-
day night in a downtown tavern.
Faculty and student members
are there to meet old friends,
make new ones and get away from
narrowing departmentalism and
shop talk.
AT EACH of the round tables
that crowd the room are seated
serious-minded men and women
discussing anything from "the
concept of a metaphysical word"
to why "the University radio sta-
tion sounds like a soap opera."
An occasional heated argu-
ment or sparkling story draws a
smal standing audience, crowd-
ing to hear, analyze and inter-
pret every word. f

THE BULL-RING was founded
last fall by a number of faculty
and students who wanted to have
a group that could meet on a
democratic basis in a small and
informal organization.
The founding fathers include
Prof. George Frsyth o~f the
fine arts department, Prof.
Austin Warren of the English
department, Prof. Irving Leon-
ard of the Spanish department,
Prof. Carl LaRue of the botany
department and David Crippen,
Grad.
In an effort to keep the or-
ganization casual, there is only
one officer, a secretary-treasurer,
and one rule: no formal papers or
programs.
MEMBERSHIP cards were is-
sued to cover the small cost of
renting the tavern on Friday
nights. Ten cent beer reigns su-
preme.

FOR THE INTELLIGENTSIA--THE BULL RING-Every Friday night in one of Ann Arbor's ta-
verns, University faculty and students get together for informal intellectual conversation and
beer. The organization, named the Bull-Ring, was formed to end narrow departmentalism and pro-
vide stimulating discussions.

campus produced film "The Well
Wrought Ern," may capture the
attention of all the beer drinkers,
but the usual custom is, a different
topic at every table.

WITH THE publication of

"Generation" last week, much of
the discussion last Friday cen-
tered around the values of the in-
dividual articles.
With the sounding of the
midnight curfew on Ann Arbor
taverns the c row d begins to
thin.

Some go directly home, taking
with them the provocative issues
and thoughts debated during the
evening. Others continue the dis-
cussions well into the night, at
late hour restaurants and ham-
burger stands.

Ti Leaves Will
Spice Foreign
DinnerToday
A shipment of ti and tara leaves
flown in from Hawaii will give
just the right tang to the pro-
ceedings at a traditional Hawaiian
supper to be held today at the
International Center.
It is necessary that the leaves
be fresh, as they are used to wrap
pork in to give the meat a spe-
cial flavor, according to two of the
cooks who will prepare the meal.
Following the dinner, George
Peek of the political science de-
partment will lead the weekly
round-table discussion on the sub-
ject, "Statehood for Hawaii -
What It Would Mean to the U.S."
The suppers are presented by
different groups of foreign stu-
dents each week.
Papers Available
Students who submitted manu-
scripts for the Inter-Arts Union
Festival or Generation may pick
them up Tuesday in Rm. 2213, An-
gell Hall.
