UNIQUE UNION RELIC:
Lone Spittoon Marks Vanished Sport
with LEAH MARKS
By HARRY REED
The great American habit of
chewing tobacco, and the result-
ant ringing of shiny brass cuspi-
dors, has almost disappeared from
But Frank Kuenzel, general
manager of the Union, has, in his
office, one of the last real cuspi-
dors in these parts. And he's got
his eye on it all the time.
* * *
"I REALLY WATCH that one,"
he said, "it's the last mark of a
truly man's men's club around
here, and I don't want it to go the
Way of the others."
Spittoons used to be sprinkled
about the Union, wherever ash
trays are today. Then as "chaw-
in" went out, the spittoons be-
gan disappearing too. "They
make handsome trophies for the
house," he explained.
One favorite trick used in ac-
quiring a cuspidor was the kick-
ing procedure, as Kuenzel de-
scribed it. A group of students
desiring a cuspidor would enter
the Union, select their prize, and
begin a heated discussion about
something while standing around
AS THE DISCUSSION proceed-
ed, they proceeded, very slowly,
toward the nearest door, casually
nudging the chosen cuspidor along
as they went. Sometimes it would
take 20 minutes of gabbing and
kicking to get into position for
the final move, Kuenzel recalled.
"When they were close enough
to the door, it was simple enough
to gr'ab it, and run."
"After enough of them disap-
peared, we tried replacing them
Although radio and television
are often criticized for producing
programs on the moron level, such
accusations seem unfair in view
of the many educational as well
as entertaining shows which can
be found on-both Iedia.
THE NEWEST of the "higher
type" shows is WXYZ-TV's"'Pulit-
zer Prize Playhouse. At 9 p.m.
each Friday the

SPITTOON KICKING-A student demonstrates the once-popular
art of spittoon kicking which has so decimated the Union's col-
lection of cuspidors that the one pictured above is the sole re-
maining specimen. It is guarded zealously in the office of Frank
F. Kuenzel, general manager of the Union.

with sand pots, and storing the
rest, but they seemed to dribble
away," he sighed.

AT PRESENT there are two
"flatties"-small green pans with
sloping tops descending to a nar-
row hole in the middle, in the
Union barbershop, but these are
adjudged vastly inferior by local
experts. They have absolutely no
tonal qualities at all. Kuenzel's is
the old brass type with the wide-
flanged, deep-sounding top.
Although the last University
athlete to chew regularly was Jack
McDonald, '50, first baseman and
hockey goalie, most of the early
teams kept the spittoons ringing
regularly on campus. Even some
of the point-a-minute greats, Neil
Snow and Willie Heston, had been
known to borrow a plug now and
Chances of a resurgence of
chewing on campus seem rather
dim, at present. Only half the
local drugstores- still stock either
plug or scrap, and the Union has
long abandoned it for the more
popular cigars, pipes, and cigar-
ettes. Sadly enough, another tra-
dition has gone the way of Mah
Jong and miniature golf.

ANOTHER SHOW which meets
with the approval of the. more in-
telligent listeners is the "NBC The-
ater" which takes the air at 3
p.m. each Sunday over WWJ. The
quality of its presentations of fic-
tional "masterpieces" is so fine
that many colleges conduct home-
study correspondence courses bas-
ed on its weekly broadcasts. The
"Saturday Review of Literature"
is publishing criticisms of the
books which form the basis for
this piece of excellent listening.
Among the finest discussion pro-
grams on TV is "Mrs. Roosevelt
Meets the Public." Many other in-
telligent and interesting political
figures meet the public along with
Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt at 3:30
p.m. over WWJ-TV.
