TUJESDAY, NOVFNrr. " 2, l.'9


'Share Your
Turkey' Asks
Center Head
Wanted: a Thanksgiving Day
home for 25 foreign students.
Emphasizing the importance of
this holiday season in America,
Mrs. George Leeds, director of ac-
tivities at the International Cen-
ter, has sent an SOS to all students
and residents of Ann Arbor to in-
vite a foreign student to their
home to share the holiday turkey.
"THIS IS the second year we
have attempted to give the foreign
students a bit of the American
spirit so evident at holidays like
Thanksgiving, and we still have
openings for 25 hostesses.
"The idea of Thanksgiving is
a typically American one, for it
is the spirit of being home with
the family, not just the meal
alone," lWrs. Leeds pointed out.
"We want our foreign students
to share in this great American
tradition," she said. "Moreover, it
is a wonderful opportunity for
Americans to teach and learn
from foreign students."
Those who desire to invite for-
eign students to their homes may
contact Mrs. Leeds at the Inter-
national Center or by calling
31511, Ext. 358.

BABY IT'S COLD OUTSIDE-Immobilized bicycles and a piercing
wind plagued classroom-bound students yesterday morning after
the first snowfall of the semester. The cold snap will continue
today with a high of 36 degrees predicted. While students happily
tramped about throwing snowballs, plant department officials
sighed wearily, watched their carefully-tended lawns slowly dis-
appearing beneath the onslaught of student feet and voiced the
traditional plea.

ter to any I've met," according to
Bill Zerman, '49, former ace cam-
pus "promoter."
Zerman, now working as field
secretary for Phi Gamma Delta
fraternity, has extensive grounds
on which to base his comparison.
His job takes him to more than
40 college campuses from Canada
to Florida.

A JOURNALISM graduate, for-,
mer general sales manager for the
'Ensian and promotion manager
for last year's Union Opera, Zer-
man declared that he found east-
ern schools to be highly over-rated.
A few months ago, Zerman
talked wil General Dwight Eisen-
hower, president of Columbia Uni-
versity, about the fraternity sys-
"As a West Point graduate, Eis-
enhower had never attended a fra-
ternity school, and wanted to
know about them," Zerman ex-
"There is a lot more to a fra-
ternity than the social side," he
"Many freshmen have a great
deal of respect for the upperclass-
man, and the older members of the
house should exert beneficial in-
fluences on the social and intellec-
tual development of the under-
Talking about the discrimina-
tion issue in fraternities, Zerman
"As is typical of all other fra-
ternities, any question concerning
our national organization always
has been, and always will be de-
cided by representatives of our
46,000 members."
"I've never seen so many mal-
adjusted people as the students
at eastern colleges," he re-
Pointing to a difference between
Michigan and other schools, he
said, "In the East,. consideration
for the student takes second place
while major emphasis is placed on
alumni relations and ivy-clad tra-

Zerman is one of two field sec-
retaries touring the fraternity's
79 chapters in the United States
and Canada. He arrived in Ann
Arbor for a four day stay in time
to see Saturday's football game.
He described part of his duties
as helping to develop the person-
ality and character of the frater-
nity's members.
* * * *
"WE TRY to keep each chapter
up to a national standard, helping
to solve any problems individual
members or a house as a whole
may have," he said.
Along with his other promo-
tion activities on campus, Zer-

man was manager of a band in
1946-47. He belongs to Sigma
Delta Chi, national journalism
fraternity, and was a member of
the football squad, "until an in-
jury forced me to admit I wasn't
good enough."
Zerman will leave Ann Arbor to-
morrow, to visit mid-western and
southern schools.
In April, he begins a speaking
tour at Alumni dinners throughout
the country.
A Big Business
The all-time United States re-
cord for life insurance sales in one
year was $23,000,000,000 in 1947.
