The Truth About The PIGS

Has anyone wondered, besid
the members of the ticket com
mittee, why not a single membe
of Pi Iota Gamma sorority at
tended the J-Hop? Not one of th
charming creatures enhanced th
occasion with her presence. How
ever, my investigators, throug]
the use of wire taps and micro
phones hidden in powder rooms a
fraternity parties, have ferrete
out the truth.
IN THE COLD-It seems tha
since the beginning of the yea
every wire into most sororitie
was kept hotter than a pharmicis
mate's needle. Even men who hav
one date a year had sworn tha
they would makewthe supreme ef
fort on J-Hop weekend. But i
the Pi Iota Gaama house ther
was no sound of tinkling phon
bells-only silence.
beginning of exams, the pattern
of events was quite clear to- the
PIG'S. Only the married members
who had forced their husbands
to buy a ticket, were to have dates
It's true that most could cross the
country without changing stock
cars, but certainly the men on
campus had heard that "with a
three to one ratio, any girl can
have a date."
Racked by the worry that they
might not even be in the girl ca-
tagory, positive action was plan-
ned by the officers of PIG. As any
fool could see the "dateless Joans"
were in the majority. A chapter
meeting loomed in the near fu-
ture. The neurotic minds of frus-
trated women had begun to churn.
mugs and hickory paddles dripped
with anticipation as the presi-
dent's gavel rapped out an order
of silence. The meeting moved
swiftly through the usual order of
business. Everything seemed to
be quite routine-but the room
still contained 60 thwarted wo-
the meeting was about to close,
cne of the more prominent (ugh)
women arose and calmly stated,
"I make a motion that the Pi Iota
Gamma chapter hold a work-week
during Feb. 10 and 11." The gasps
of breath created such a vacuum
At the Wolverine
SCRAPER - with Trigger, the
Marx Brothers, Maurice Cheva-
lier, Sidney Greenstreet and Hed-
da Hopper. HENRY V-with as-
sorted Englishman.
The main film on this lament-
able double-bill shows that even
the smart money boys at Republic
can make a mistake.
Of course Trigger is magni-
ficent. Even this soporific item
can't .hide this artist's innate
abilities and natural charm.
But unfortunately the rest of
the fim is a horse of a different
The basic plot is a good one,
springing right out at you from
the front page of your newspaper.
It deals with the attempts of Rus-
sian agents (played by the Marx
Brothers) in New York, working
under the guise 'of pencil sharpen-
ers at the United Nations, to con-
vert to communism Trigger, who
is in town with his rodeo.
As I said the story is good, but

the execution of it is putrid. Only
one scene-a macabre chase of
Trigger, with Greenstreet on him,
by the Red agents, who are on a
BMT subway train at the time--'
has a certain outre charm.
Unfortunately, the second pic-
ture does not redeem the program
as they sometimes do. It is 'mere-
ly a feebly acted, badly directed,
otr nimcly zo-mfn Wrc -n 'i


in that room that the speed of
light increased 2000 miles per sec-
ond. Then - bedlam! From the
n o i s e s heard, the neighbors
thought DKE was back on campus.
APHORISM-The outcome was
inevitable. How could four mar-
ried women and two queens, who
had stumbled into the house by
mistake during rushing, fend off
that mass of determined (ugh)
women. Through the democratic
system the PIG's have traded one
bucket of suds for another bucket
of suds.
Only one bit of wisdom can be
drawn from this sad tale-Long
Live Democracy!

To the Editor:
Knowing no other way, I take
the means of the public press to
express my deep thanks to one
whom I know only as John Slav-
If it had not been for your ex-
aminations, your blue-books, your
lecture notes, your class notes and
your crib notes, John Slavens,
which -somehow found their way
into my house's exam files, I
would never have been able to
achieve the solid D in Arithmetic
which it has been my good fortune
to receive.
Again, thank you very much.

Advice ...
To the J-Hon Editor:
Since leaving the Daily as a re-
sult of a nasty mix-up over the
J-Hop extra, I have taken much
time to reconsider my folly. Here-
with follows my advice:
Consider carefully the symbol-
ism of each article you print, as
well as the superficial meaning.
Consider carefully the superfi-
cial meaning.
Consider the whole paper care-

Any of you who happen to know
a Daily staffer have probably no-
ticed the gleam in his eye when
he mentions the J-Hop Extra.
This edition, which gets more
loving editorial care than any-
thing else wve put out, really has
a three-fold purpose.
Above all, it is a chance for the
staff, the J-Hop Committee and
the readers to aid the March of
Dimes Committee to go over the
top on the campus quota.
The extra also serves as aI
souvenir of the big dance of the
Michigan year. Let's admit it,f
we all like to see our names in
print, and the list of couples at-
tending the great event is as
well read and re-read as the ad-
vertisements on breakfast cer-
eal boxes.
But most significantly to the
Daily staff, the J-Hop Extra is a
chance to blow off pent-up steam
that has accumulated over a se-
mester of listening and reporting
the antics and events that pass in
review in Ann Arbor.
You will find take-offs on prac-
tically everything of note that has
happened during the fall of 1949
as well as some predictions of
things to come. Undoubtedly,
some members of the Administra-
tion and student organizations
will find that they hit close to
home. But the ability to laugh at
ourselves is something we should-
n't do without even in our most
serious moments.
Anyway, here you will find
commentary on athletics, the
lecturers from both inside and
out of the University, and the
satire of reporters who have had
to sit through meetings of stu-
dent government and political
clubs through the year,
J-Hop extras have a fabulous
history. Years back, a Daily edi-
tor was kicked off the staff be-
cause his edition became too hot
to handle.
Last year it was put out by a
witty young man with the human
slant on life who wanted to get a
column in the regular edition and
couldn't. He knocked himself out
for a week to do a job on the extra
and a job on his column.
Considered from every angle
then, the J-Hop Extra means
many things to many people. A
break for those hit with Polio,
a memory for those who took
part; and a chance to use up ex-
cess energy for the reporters who
write it.
In line wtih current Mid-Cen-
tury themes, we'd like to predict
that like dogs and women, the J-
Hop extra and the J-Hop weekend
will still be holding their own in
2000 A.D.

Old Voice
In the Land

It was inevitable, in the second
half of the 20th Century that
arm-chair detectives would put
their minds to work tq find out
who pulled the million dollar
bank robbery in Boston and the
series of diamond thefts and rob-
beries which have, cropped up in
New York.
Some of these theorists, mostly
Republican, lay the whole thing
at the door of the Fair Deal.
Seems they've got proof that it is
another try at balancing the bud-
get without raising taxes. They
point to the fact that President
Truman said it was possible but
didn't explain how.
No doubt the bankers were
members of the "vested inter-
est" clique, and as the Republi-
cans put it, "their votes don't
Anyway, they argue, after 18
years of the New Deal and Fair
Deal we should be accustomed to
million dollar raids-look at the
national debt.
The final result will probably
show some small time gangsters
were the culprits. If the Boston
police will follow my own the-
ory they'll throw a road block
around the Massachusetts coast
land and catch the thieves.
"The daring that braved a
stormy sea even unto Plymouth
and the courage which defied In-
dian arrows", an old voice in the
land known as "rugged individu-
alism", has returned again.
This time the opposition is us-
ing bullets.

To the Editor:
I have been on sabatical leave
for the last seven years, and have
just returned to Ann Arbor. In
spite of instructions to the con-
trary, I find that The Michigan
Daily has been delivered each day
over the whole period. Therefore
I have 1,449 Dailies on my front
I am returning these by special
truck, since you must have more
use for them than I do.
-Renneth Koke
EDITOR'S NOTE: A check with our
triumphant circulation department
reveals that every Daily was delivered
to Prof. Kowe. There have been ex-
actly 1,449,Dailies in the last 7 years.
