Fried chicken, plum pudding
and caroling will usher in the
spirit of Christmas in University
dormitories this week and next
in annual celebration of the holi-
day season.
Traditional Christmas dinner,
served at candle lit tables covered
with holly and greens are being
planned for 5,000 students living
MSC Project
Work To Start
Michigan State College expects
to begin construction on half of
its war memorial project next
year.
The project originally called for
the construction of- a student cha-
pel and adjoining international
center.
* * *
PLANS FOR THE international
center have been temporarily shel-
ved and the $170,000 collected in
the war memorial drive will be
used to build the chapel.
Until the international center
can be built, the basement of the
chapel will serve as a gathering
place for foreign students.
This year
visit Fischers

in University Residence Halls.
* * *
FOOD SERVICE units have
been planning for the festive sea-
son with mountains of candy
canes, fruit cakes and molded jel-
lies, to garnish the Christmas
tables.
Glee clubs gathered from var-
ious dormitory units will once
again roam from dining room
to dining room singing the cen-
tury old carols and hymns.
The dining rooms will be decked
with the red and green of spark-
ling lights and trees that mark
the celebration of the season of
the birth of Christ.
LATER IN THE WEEK, indivi-
dual house units will gather once
again for the annual Christmas
parties, to eat the cookies and
candies of -the holiday season.
The Christmas parties held
just before the beginning of va-
cation, mark a traditional cele-
bration, in most dormitories.
The most unusual of the festi-
vities held, will be the Christmas
program in Helen Newberry.

THE NEWBERRY Christmas
play, presented at a dinner is a
production of "St. Geogre and the
Dragon."

She has performed with the New
York Schola Cantorum, the Hart-
ford Oratorio Society, the Carne-
gie Opera Guild and on CBS
broadcasts.
Natzka, who made his Ameri-
can debut with the New York
City Opera Company in 1948,
has been hailed by New York
Times critics as possessing a
"voice which was a treat to
hear. rieh with resonan, and

and was judging "a commanding
bass with a beautiful voice." A
New Zealander, Natzke appeared
also in the 1940 New Zealand Cen-
tenary Celebration Music Festival,

Man, Convertible Listed As
Most Desirable Presents
Grin and wear it!
This is the only advice to the many optimists who have asked for
cadillac convertibles this Christmas and will by all indications get
underwear or another tie.
STUDENTS POLLED in a "What do you want for Christmas"
survey indicated that the most popular yuletide wishes are, in ap-
proximately this order: 1. A man. 2. A woman. 3. A car. 4. Money-
scads of it. 5. A ski trip.
Others nervously clutching their wallets sheepishly admitted
that their female friends would have to be content with a well-
selected card.
But not all the coeds will be disappointed Christmas morn. Jewelry
and perfume rated high as possibilities.
SEVERAL WOMEN confided that they'd been dropping subtle
hints for jewelry, though just how many will get diamond rings and
platinum watches is dubious.
One man was skeptical about dropping hints. Last year, he
casually mentioned rattle snake meat and got it-"canned and in-
edible," he said.
Argyle socks will be dropping off many a knitting needle to keep
campus feet warm, and tie racks should be adequately stocked when
the men get their presents, judging from female intentions.

regularly on the radio on many
nationwidebroadcasts, including
the "Treasury Hour." She has
also appeared as soloist with
several symphony groups, among
them the Choral Union series
orchestra, the Boston, Philadel-
phia and Cleveland.
She has also been featured re-
cently in the Worcester and Berk-
shire Festivals and at Colorado's
Central City Opera Festival in the
title role of "Orpheus."
The "Messiah" will be performed
at 8:30 p.m. Saturday, and re-
peated in a matinee performance
2:30 p.m. Sunday. Tickets for
either concert may be purchased
at the Choral Union office, Burton
Tower.
Christmas Job
Outlook Poor
In Ann Arbor
The outlook isn't too bright for
students who hope to earn Christ-
mas gift money at part-time jobs
in campus stores.
Only a quarter of the stores
surveyed are planning to use extra
student help during the rush sea-
son. All of these either have al-
ready hired the extra workers or
have long waiting lists.
* * *
MANY OF THE merchants use
students part-time during the en-
tire school year and felt that these
people would be sufficient to carry
them through the holiday buying
spree.
For the handful of students
remaining in Ann Arbor over the
vacation the job outlook is only
a little less bleak.
"The reason that we don't hire
students over the holiday period
is that they leave for home at
the time we are most busy," a dime
store manager explained.
THESE JOBS however will be
scarce. The director of a local
super market pointed out that
those students who are working
part-time while classes are in ses-
sion will work full-time over the
recess.
The only hope seems to be for
veterans. One store said that it
was not hiring any students but
did have openings for veterans'
wives not attending school.
