NORTH POLE CALLING:
Santa Not Dead, Radios
LewisJust Missed Him

CHICAGO,-(/P) - Santa Claus
as hale and hearty as ever, went
on the radio to laugh off the re-
port that John L. Lewis had mor-
tally wounded him.
* * *
THE CHUCKLING gent, speak-
ing "from the North Pole" over
NBC, said John L. "just missed"
him. He promised to be on hand
"as always" and asked children to
watch for him Christmas day.
Santa said he had lot of
work on schedule because "boys
are much better" this year and
r it means he'll have to move
about considerably to get to all

of them. He said he has "a few
jet planes" to take him on his
calls.
The broadcast was arranged to
dispel the worry of kids who had
heard NBC Commentator Paul
Long in Pittsburgh say that "John
L. Lewis just shot Santa Claus."
It was his way of saying, NBC ex-
plained, that it would be a bleak
Christmas for miners because of
the coal strike.
IN CHICAGO, a dozen young-
sters called the Sun-Times and
begged, "Say it isn't so." The
newspaper quieted their fears.

'Dutch' Nixes
Date Queries,
Hibernates
Phone Barrage
Shatters Privacy
By JOAN WILLENS
Well-meaning friends can make
life pretty embarassing, Lloyd
Heneveld, '50E, has sadly learned
this week.
IT ALL started Tuesday when
some prankster inserted this per-
sonal ad in The Daily's Classified
Ads:
"Handsome blond ex-football
player has nothing to do week-
ends; wholesome type date de-
sired. Phone Dutch, 3-4707."
Then came the barrage of
wholesome responses as the Sigma
Phi house received a daily average
of eight calls requesting to speak
to Dutch, the nickname of the shy
electrical engineering student from
Holland, Michigan.
* * *
7HE UNHAPPY football player
was forced to seek refuge from the
,udden invasion upon his private
life by being "conveniently absent"
most of the week, leaving his
"brothers" to tell "the girls" that
Dutch was not home.
Dissatisfied with this reply,
several eager coeds resorted to
writing letters in hopes of con-
tacting the unidentified Dutch.
Evidently critical of the whole-
some response evoked by the ori-
ginal ad and its repetition on
Wednesday, the jokester directed
his Thursday's "appeal" to a dif-
ferent segment of Ann Arbor's fe-
male population with:
* * *
"GIRLS-Want to keep warm
like a'Holland furnace? Have a
date with Dutch. Call 3-4707."
Reports from the Sigma Phi
house indicate that many coeds
are interested in Holland heat-
ing appliances, as the phone
keeps ringing for Dutch.
Queried by The Daily as to the
dating success of the affair, Hene-
veld, president of Vulcans, engi-
neering honorary, merely said he
had no comment.
John Combes, roommate of the
unusually popular 6'1", 195 pound
Wolverine guard reports that
Dutch is "pretty shaken up about
the whole thing."
Crimson Says
Yale Accepts
Garg;ant ua
Yale University is planning to
accept a 20-year-old gorilla into
the college according to the Har-
vard Crimson.
THE CRIMSON hinted that the
gorilla had been recruited with an
eye toward using him on the foot-
ball team in the fall.
Yale admission authorities
disclaimed any knowledge of the
affair. Said one official: "We
have never encouraged the en-
rollment of gorillas in the uni-
versity."
O t h e r university spokesmen
termed the whole affair a gigantic
misunderstanding which arose ov-
er the announcement that the

body of Gargantua, a circus gorilla
who recently died in his cage in
Florida, would be placed on dis-
play in the university's Peabody
Museum.
"Obviously we don't contemplate
using this gorilla on the football
squad," one administrator was
quoted as saying.

By DON McNEIL
Dorianne Zipperstein has been
a part of the Student Legislature
for so long that her record break-
ing election this fall might almost
be considered anti-climax.
* * *
TO THE PETITE brunette
"Dodo," who polled 279 first place
votes, highest in SL history to be-
come the first woman elected first
in the elections, the NSA Commit-f
tee of the Legislature is the center
of her extra-curricular activities.
Dodo has been representative
to the NSA national Congress;
two years in a row, has served
as secretary and later Interna-
tional subcommittee chairman
of the campus NSA, and was
elected this fall to the chairman-
ship of the International Com-
mission of the Michigan region-
al NSA.
Probably SL's hardest worker,
.she practically sleeps and eats
student government. It was her
sincerity, according to her sup-
porters, that won her the election.
* * *
SHE APPLIED, they say, the
same hard work to her campaign
that she does to her NSA work,
speaking at all open houses and
most fraternities, sororities and
dorms.
Now that the campaign is
over, Dodo is returning to her
old job-the NSA.
But she has more immediate ob-
jectives in mind.
The night following the election
Dodo was presented with a niece,
Lyn, for whom she has confidently
begun picking up votes and dates
for the year 1969.
* * *
SHE CAN'T be sure which event
gave her the biggest thrill, each
being a first in her life, but she
prefers talking about Lyn, and
has been busy lately buying
Christmas presents for the family
addition.
Optimistically, she hopes to de-
vote a little time to studying now,
"just to keep from fdunking out."
OSU Has Contest
For 'Ugliest Man'1
Alpha Phi Omega fraternity at
Ohio State has just completed one
of the most unusual contests in
collegiate history.
They have awarded a prize to
the Ugliest Man on Campus,
based on the candidates submitted
by men's organizations at the Uni-
versity.

Middle Ages
Began Use
Of Mistletoe
When you meet someone under
the mistletoe, don't kill 'em, kiss
'emn.
Strange advise for moderns, this
dictum was serious business to
knights of the medieval 'era.
'TWAS THE CUSTOM in those
days for enemies, when meeting
under mistletoe, to lay down their
weapons until the following day.
This tradition has been passed
down to modern times, still car-
rying a peaceful motive.
The basic idea has remained
through the years, but its form of
expression has changed. Romance
has been added with kissing the
current form of expression.
This has brought about a saving
of lives which more than makes
up for.the added expenditure of
lipstick.

Latest in the line of "be com-
fortable and stylish at the same
time" items of apparel, are fuzzy
wool-lined shoes.
These, especially attractive in
red or tan, are fast replacing the
customary stadium boots previous-
ly worn by University coeds.
ALTHOUGH they are not ad-
visable for deep snow, they are
fine when the white stuff has be-

come firmly packed, and are guar-
anteed to prevent cold toes.
Some campus reactionaries
have attacked the shoes as re-
sembling bedroom slippers, but
wearers smile smugly, secure in
thar protection against biting
winter winds.
Sporting a dull leather finish
and tied with a single lace in the
front, the shoes are rapidly win-
ning coed converts.
