Ann Arbor Set for Zany
By BOO KEITH
Another zany and traditionally
spectacular Homecoming celebra-
tion will be on tap here next week-
end when the Wolverines do battle
with the Wisconsin Badgers.
All sorts of activities have been
planned to provide students and
visiting alumni with a rousing
time from Friday night to the wee
hours Sunday morning.
The week-end bill will include
a big pre-game pep rally Friday
and the traditional Homecoming
Dance Saturday night. Adding
considerable color to the festivities
will be scores of displays set up by
housing groups throughout cam-
* * *
INITIAL preparations for the
affair are already underway, with
at least 66 dorms, fraternities, so-
rorities and co-ops concocting wit-
ty and wierd outdoor decorations.
Spirited students are going all
out to do a bang-up job. At least
one house has obtained raw ma-
terials by raiding lumber piles
at the new South Quad. Most
groups will enliven their dis-
plays with moving parts and in
a few cases smoke or running
Judging will take place Saturday
morning and cups will go to win-
THIS YEAR'S Homecoming is
apparently the 53rd such occas-
sion in University history. The
event was inaugurated in 1897
when alumni foot-ballers came
home to play against the Varsity.
Display contests are more re-
cent. Fraternities started them be-
fore the first world war and in-
dependent houses' and dorms took
part for the first time in 1944.
That year is still a nightmare
to the feminine carpenters at
one particular sorority. The wo-
men built their display in the
basement and then found it was
too large to move outdoors.
Troubles of a different nature
upset the 1947 Homecoming. That
was the year Life magazine did
a spread on the fete. Everyone
here was excited over- the pros-
pects, but local pride quickly dis-
appeared when the magazine came
out showing a grinning coed witht
a cabbage on her head and a cou-
ple of thoroughly soused Wolver-

The last 24 Bomber Scholar-
ships, amounting to $100 each,
have been awarded, according to
Dean Erich A. Walter.
This year's award brings to a
total of 254 the number of scholar-
ships granted from the bomber
fund. It was started in 1942 to
provide financial assistance for
veterans who attended the Univer-
sity at the end of the war.
THE PLAN provided that a part
of the receipts from campus social
functions would be donated to a
fund which would be invested in
United States War Bonds.
The original goal of the plan
was to purchase enough bonds to
buy an Army bomber; thus the
name "Bomber Scholarships"
A total of $25,400 has been
awarded from the original $22,500
investment coupled with the in-

are all veterans, are:

Careless use of cigarettes, par-

way to shorten one's life expect-

TO COMBAT the cigarette men-
ace in Ann Arbor, there is a city
ordinance against smoking in bed
in hotels, rooming houses and
other transient residences. .
"I've seen people sent to jail
for violating this law," observed
He said there were less than a
dozen fires reported in student
residences last year, none of them
major, and attributed the good
record to an inspection system
maintained by the city engineer's
office and the University.
ON THE NATIONAL SCENE,
however, the picture is not so
bright, he added. Underwriters'
statistics show that fire strikes
more than 400,000 homes each
year. That means that every 90.
seconds, day and night, an Ameri-
can home is struck by fire, causing
an estimated total loss of more
than $260,000,000 annually.
And nearly all of the fires
could be prevented through the
exercise of a little common sense,
He cited four simple rules, which
-if followed, would greatly reduce
the incidence of firerindomestic
1. Do not smoke near combusti-
2. Do not smoke in bed.
3. Keep electrical equipment and
wires in good repair, and avoid
overloading circuits; a penny in
a fuse box can cost a fortune.
4. Use cleaning fluids which are
