Students driving home for
spring vacation can be sure of a
car-load of expense sharing riders,
thanks to a special service at the
In an effort to ease up holiday
transportation woes, Union stu-
dent staffmen have set up a tra-
vel bureau in the Union lobby.
Its chief purpose is to enable stu-
dents with cars to get together
with students who want rides.
IF THE SERVICE works out as
well this spring as it did at
Christmas time, the end result
should be a mass exodus next
week of cars bound for all parts
of the country, loaded with riders
willing to help pay for gas and
other vital travel necessities.
Don Berns, '52, and Bernie
Jentiett, '52, co-chairmen of the
project, reported that more than
500 students have already signed
up. But they bemoaned one ma-
jor problem: "Not enough
Drivers going to New York, Chi-
cago and the Upper Peninsula
are especially in demand, accord-
ing to Jennett.
"We're trying to make assign-
ments as rapidly as possible, but
the lack of drivers is a hindrance,"
Jennett said. He pointed out that
students interested in the "share
the ride" plan should leave their
names at the Union as soon as
possible to ensure satisfaction.
A SERIES of boxes line the
lobby, in which students bound for
various areas can deposit cards
bearing their name, address, des-
tination and other information.
Cards are collected at the end of
each day and a Union committee
immediately tries to coordinate
the supply of drivers with the de-
mand for rides.
