Flood Water,
Deep Snows
Two Lives Lost,
Scores Isolated
By The Associated Press
Flood waters and foot-deep
snows took two lives and maroon-

hunters in western states yester-
Elsewhere the freakish weather
shot temperatures to both record
lows and highs for the date.

dead in Idaho where she had been
missing from her hunting camp

In the Houston, Tex., area the
threat of a major flood eased

creeks, which rampaged through
the area, began receding.
Hundreds of suburbanites were
marooned by the 10-inch rain
which flooded homes, halted traf-

dred residents were evacuated
when water whirled into their
homes. It stood five feet deep in
some sections.

25 Game Streak
Blasted by Army
Wolverine Passing Offense Snuffed
Out by 'Tragic' Injury to Ortmann
(Sports Co-Editor)
It had to end sometime.
Michigan's still-mighty Wolverines went down to defeat at the
hands of a relentless Army team yesterday, 21-7, to clip The String
at 25 victories in a row. The Cadets win stretched their undefeated
streak to 14 games.
THE SPIRITED WOLVERINES received the opening kick off and
looked for all the world as if they were going to march up and down
the field at will, as Leo Koceski took the kick and raced to the
Michigan 45 before he was stopped to start things off.
On the first play from scrimmage Charlie Ortmann threw a
long pass which was knocked down out of the waiting hands of
end Harry Allis by two Army defenders. The next play was one

Varied Merriment Fires
Revival of 'Tug Week'

Freshmen will take the lead in
the spirited revival of the Univer-
sity's rah-rah traditions of pre-
war days tomorrow when they as-
semble at the campus flagpole at
7:30 p.m. for the rally which
marks the opening of Tug Week.
The Fiji marching band of Phi
Gamma Delta and the East and
West Quad bands will sound the
rousing call to all freshmen and
interested spectators, and lead
them to the rally.

THE THREE BANDS will orig-
inate from Hill street and Wash-
tenaw, from Palmer Field, and
from the West Quad.
Original skits, speeches by
Dave Lake, cheer leader captain,
and by the freshman represen-
tative, songs by the Vaughn
House Trio, and a pep talk by
Prof. Russell C. Hussey of the
geology department, "sponsor of
the Class of '53," will provide
entertainment for all.
A sophomore rally will be held
at 7:.30 p.m. Tuesday, for which
a similar program has been plan-;

ned by Chuck Murray, '51. Bill
Osterman, '51, will act as master
of ceremonies for both rallies.
* * *
PROF. HARRY C. Carver of the
mathematics department, a Mich-
igan alumnus and classmate of
Hussey's, will encourage "hip
sophs" to show their spirit and
muscles at the tugs-of-war during
the week.
"Soph Satire," a musical com-
edy, will be presented by the
sophomores for the freshmen at
8:00 p.m. Friday at Hill Audi-
torium. Adele Hager, '51, direc-
tor of the show, said that all
students are invited to see
"sophs' talents."
An all - campus "Hard-Times
Dance" will be held Saturday night
at the League, in honor of both
the freshmen and sophomores. The
key to the informality of the
dance can be found in Bill Grip-

Students Report Job
Openings Scarce Here.
(EDITOR'S NOTE--This is the first of two articles surveying the scope and
wage level of student employment on and around campus.)


Students hard hit by the swollen cost of living and facing the
added burden of a tuition hike next semester are finding it increasingly
difficult to find a job in Ann Arbor.
While hardly reminiscent of the "30's" when thousands of stu-
dents the nation over pounded the sidewalks hunting for work to
keep them in school, many students on campus have reported long

at local business establishments.
