POTS GO TO ST UDENTS' HEADS:
Univer-sity Men Succumb to New Look
By DAVIS CRIPPEN
The pots are among us.
A large number of male stu-
dents have begun wearing cha-
peaux known as pots, golfing caps
or just "-uh-" among the local
citizenry, depending on their atti-
tude toward the hats.
Though the caps have been
worn for some years in the East,
they have just caught on at Mich-
igan this semester.
Plays To Be
A bill of three one-act plays will
be presented by the speech de-
partment at 8 p.m. Friday in Lydia
This is the second of two such
programs given each semester un-
der the direction of students in
the advanced theatre classes.
Opening the bill will be "The
Queens of France" by Thornton
Wilder. Set in the French Quar-
ter, of New Orleans, the play tells
of the discovery of the heir to
the French throne. Enid Moise,
Grad., is the director.
The second offering, "Poet's
Corner," by Mary Pakingtong, de-
picts a scene from the life of John
Keats, showing his relationship
to the people who inspired him.
The play is directed by Nafe
Katter, Grad., who appeared as
Mr. Brink in "On Borrowed Time"
and as James in "Family Por-
Jean Cocteau's "Orphee," a
fable in modern dress, will close
the, bill. Tse play presents a
fanciful,comedy treatment of the
Orpheus legend. Directing it is
Strowan Robertson, Grad., who
directed "V frder in the Cathe-
dral" and "Sweeney Agonistes."
Tickets for the one-acts will be
on sale from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Friday at Lydia Mendelssohn box
THEIR RECEPTION has been
mixed. Local haberdashers have
been mystified as to the caps'
sudden popularity, but far from
nonplussed when it came to find-
ing points in the headpieces'
Students, even those "who
own one," on the other hand,
seem able to make only dispar-
Haberdasher Neuman Frost,
casting about for the reason be-
hind the cap surge, said dubious-
ly, "The hat manufacturers claim
they're coming back because of
the return of convertibles."

FROST, casting a calculating
eye at the cash register, allowed
that they were a good item
Unlike regular men's hats, he
pointed out, the caps can be fold-
Prof. James K. Pollock, chair-
man of the political science de-
partment, was elected president
of the American Political Science
Presidency of the Association,
whose 4,000 members include pro-
fessors, legislators and public ad-
ministrators is the highest honor
a political scientist can receive in
Prof. Pollock succeeds Prof.
Quincy Wright of the University
of Chicago. The office has been
held by such famed persons as
Woodrow Wilson and Lord James
Bryce,. author of "The American
Prof. Pollock is the second Uni-
versity of Michigan faculty mem-

its founding in 1906. The late

term of office is one year.
ed up and put in the pocket when
the owner attends class.
Student Helen Orlich,'50, cast
a negative vote. To her the
headwear is "rah-rah" and silly.
If they needed an excuse to
keep the head warm," she con-
tinued, "they could have picked
something more decent."
On the other side of the fence,
Beverly Bailey, '50, cooed, "I
think they're cute, but I wouldn't
be seen dead with a guy wearing
on.* * *
PAUL WAGNER,, proprietor of
a State Street emporium, was at
a loss to explain the caps' resur-
gence, too. "Just a cycle," was
all he could say.
But the style hasn't caught
him napping. Fifteen years ago,
he related, his store had bought
a cap rack. Just at that time,
however, caps had gone out of
style and the rack was convert-
ed to ties.
Just this fall, he declared with
the happiness of a man seeing
everything coming out even, the
rack finally got its set of caps.
* * *
SPEAKING of the caps as a
sign of a return to the men's
styles of the 20's, one salesman
said that would be okay "just so
they don't get in that raccoon coat
The types of caps are legion.
"There are as many different
kinds as there are manufactur-
ers," one haberdasher epigram-
One of the most unusual type
of caps are the ones sold in two
campus town stores for the bene-
fit of the "M" Club.
In traditional Maize-and-Blue,
nearly 200 of them have been sold
since they were put on sale the
week of the Ohio State game, ac-
cording to George Earl, one of
the men selling them.

TENTATIVE plans are afoot,
he confided, to equip a cheering
section with them for next sea-
But the majority of the stu-
dents would be far from wild
about such an innovation, it
would seem from their comments.
Leonard Wilcox, '52, about
summed up the contempt for the
caps shown by this group when he

of the article, "Measuring Profits
Under Inflation Conditions," in

In the article, Prof. Paton states
that corporate earnings are still
materially over-stated and earn-
ing rates are grossly distorted un-

Under inflation conditions, says
Prof. Paton, an intregrated, for-
