Students Approve Women in Union

What's Up

Students interviewed yesterday
regarding the Union's plan for co-
ed recreation generally voiced ap-
proval of the drastic change in
what is the only strictly men's
Union in the Big Ten.
A spot check around the cam-
pus showed both men and women
enthusiastic about the experiment
which will begin Dec. 18. The new
arrangement will allow coeds es-
corted by Union members to use
the Union taproom, cafeteria, and
the ping-pong, billiard and bowl-
ing facilities for limited hours
during the week and weekend.
TYPICAL of men interviewed
was Doug Mann, '51L, who was
eating breakfast in the once sa-

cred Union taproom which es-
corted coeds will be allowed to
use from 2:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. daily
under the experiment.
"The change would be a fine
thing," he said. "They should
have done it long ago. What
this place needs is some women."
In a traditional position which
may disappear soon from the
main lounge-deeply seated in a
leather chair with feet propped
up on window sill-John Gregory,
'52L, agreed with -his law col-
league. "This move will make the

Union. "Since we don't have bil-
liard tables in the League," Lu-
cille Begrow, '52, commented, "I
think it's a fine idea. After all,
the men are pretty free to- roam
the League."
Apparently realizing a fond
dream of coed equality on cam-
pus, Sondra Diamond, '53,. ex-
claimed, "This is 1950; it's about
time the Union changed." Other
women interviewed agreed with
Naomi Benjamin, '53, that "the
changes should be permanent."
The question of Union front
door policy had a greater division
of opinion between male and fe-
male segments of campus.
Extreme attitudes on either side
were rare.

With most : of the stranded
stragglers back to Ann Arbor af-
ter the Thanksgiving vacation, the
campus is already well into plan-
ning for Christmas.
Victor Vaughn House became
the first residence on campus to
sprout Christmas trees. The dec-
orations for their dance last night
centered around the gay, tradi-
tional fir trees which will remain
decorated for the coming pre-
holiday weeks.
Mosher Hall, too, was the scene
of Christmas-like festivities when
their dance paid tribute to last
year's holiday favorite, Rudy the
Rednosed Reindeer, and guests at
"Rudy's Romp" entered through
an igloo door molded out of a
number of easily obtainable eye-
high snow drifts.
