NEW INDOOR THRILL:
Tap-Room TV Proving
Popular Sport at Union

,h By PAUL BRENTLINGER
he Tap-room television at the Un-
22 ion is the latest campus entertain-
1- ment sensation.
1- Last week's world series tele-
casts provided the biggest draw-
:f ing card since the set was in-
i- stalled in the Union cafeteria at
1- the end of the summer term, ac-
i- cording to Walter Orth, assistant
cafeteria manager.
* * *
k "FROM 800 TO 1,000 students
1e were in to see the series games
d each afternoon," Orth estimated.
l- Of course all these people
d were not in the tap room at
once. They came and went as
i- their class schedule permitted,
>f but the 300 to 350 chairs in the
ic vicinity of the TV set were al-
ie ways filled, Orth said.
Qr Sports in general seem to be
d the most popular form of video
y entertainment among Union tap-
ie room patrons.

evening to witness the boxing and
wrestling matches. These fight
fans do not hesitate to express
their feelings vocally, either. Each
fall or knockdown is greeted with
vigorous cheers or jeers, accord-
ing to the popularity of the vic-
tim.
Michigan football games drew
sizeable crowds to the tap-room,
even on home game days. It
seems that the Ann Arbor
townspeople have discovered the
TV set also.
A special favorite among some
of the video fans is the young lady
who conducts a physical culture
class at 4 p.m. on most weekdays.
THE YOUNG LADY, described
by one patron as being "well
built," personally demonstrates
various exercises for the fair sex.
"The boys get a big kick out
of this gal," assistant house
manager Lindley Dean declared.
Top flight vaudeville shows such
as those put on by Arthur Godfrey
and Milton Berle rank high on
the preference list of the fans,
also.
SLIGHTLY LESS popular are
the quiz shows and the amateur
hours, which give Joe Doakes from
Podunk a chance to demonstrate
his skill on his specially-built har-
monica.
With, all the popularity of the
television set, Union officials ex-
pect no great change in the
amount of business done by the
tap room.
Although more patrons visit the
tap room now, they spend more
time there. Thus, the increased
business which they bring is off-
set by the fact that the turnover
of patrons is very slow.
Student Wage
Level Stable,

inately men, are earning their
board by waiting tables and work-
ing as kitchen help in campus
fraternities, sororities and League
Houses. While a few of these
groups pays a regular hourly wage,
most of them give students board
for a little more than an hour's
work for each meal.
Students working in Univer-
sity residence halls are paid
slightly below the proposed min-
imum wage law. Depending on
the type of job, the hourly rates
are 65c and 70c. It was pointed
out, however, that the conven-
ience of working in their own
dormitories partially offsets the
students' lower wages.
The Union wage scale compares
favorably with that of local busi-
ness establishments, the average
being about 80c an hour. The
scale ranges from 75c an hour for
busboys to $1.15 an hour for senior
desk clerks.

Detroit Rally
Calm During
Robeson Talk
(Continued from Page 1)
(to the tune of "Just like a tree
that's standing by the water").
* * *
HE DID not make a long speech,
but alternated between singing
and reading prepared statements.
He told of his ex-slave father
teaching him his responsibility
toward the Negro people.
"Some say that Negroes are
all right if they keep their place.
I have but one place: Full Amer-
ican citizenship. Give us our
full human dignity," Robeson
said.
"All right, tell 'em! That's it." a
man across the aisle kept shouting
at the high points of Robeson'si
address.
ROBESON sang "Let My People
Go" and another spiritual, "Scan-
dalize My Name" and "Joe Hill"
(which he dedicated to "the 12
brave leaders of the American'
working people") and a Yiddish
song about the Warsaw Ghetto.
The concluding selection was,
naturally enough, 'Ole Man
River," in the politically con-
scious version ( show a little
grit ... ") of which Oscar Ham-
merstein claims to disapprove.
During the song, there was an
exodus of people trying to leave,
but the woman behind me kept
yelling: "Sit down and hear that
brave man singing."
Once outside, I ran into Council
President George Edwards. Asked
him why he was there, and he
said: "I wanted to see that an-
other Peekskill did not happen
here. It didn't."
