Hiawatha Club Befriends
Upper Peninsula Students
By EVA SIMON
Among the first of the "I come
from-" clubs to rear its head
at the University, the Hiawatha
Club has for years been the local
center of "Esprit de UP."
The club was organized in 1937
to help Upper Peninsula students
find living quarters and acquire
jobs here. As more members join-
ed, it became largely a social or-

DISBANDED DURING the war,
the club was reorganized two years
ago, and for the first time per-
mitted 'women to join its ranks.
Highlight of the group's social
activities are the Christmas par-
ties held in several cities of the
Upper Peninsula, to which alum-
ni and students from all Upper
Peninsula colleges are invited.
This year parties in Sault Sainte
Marie, Iron River and the Copper
Country are being planned.
THE HIAWATHA CLUB derived
its name from Longfellow's epic
poem "Hiawatha," whose action

social functions of the group.
Speakers from the University,
and schools in the Upper Penin-
sula are invited to talk on educa-
tion, industrial development and
communications in the Upper
ONE OF THE major purposes of
the club is to promote better un-
derstanding between the residents
of the Lower and Upper Peninsu-
las, according to Ray Stenstrom,;
To this end the club occasion-
ally invites students from the Low-
er Peninsula to attend its meet-
ings and exchange ideas.
F. C. Bald, assistant director of
the Michigan Historical Collec-
tions, will speak at the next meet-
ing of the club, 7:30 p.m. tomor-
row in the League. Possibilities of
transportation to the Upper Penin-
sula will be considered.

war unemployment of 325,000 in
Michigan was reported today on
the eve of a return to work for
more than one-third of the total.
The Michigan Unemployment
Compensation Commission attri-

to belated effects of the steel
strike. Also listed as factors were

mobile industry shutdowns for

Unemployment stood at 168,000
in the state and was declining

From all appearances, the latest
