Religious Groups Launch Programs


Dance Prices Higher,
Pool Improved at Union

After an orientation week-end
of open houses, mixers and wel-
come parties, Lane Hall and the
student religious groups are pre-
paring to launch their fall pro-
grams this week.
As their initial project, Student
Religious Association and the
Wesleyan Guild are sponsoring a
talk by Toyohiko Kagawa, world-
famous Japanese evangelist and
social worker.

Kagawa, who is making his
fourth lecture tour of the United
States, will give an inside report
on Japanese life at 8:30 p.m,
Thursday in Hill Auditorium. His
talk is open to the public with-
out admission charge.
Square dancing in the base-
ment or parking lot of Lane Hall
will be resumed starting at 7 p.m.
today and continuing every Tues-

day, night, and the Lane Hall
Craft Shop will re-open for its
regular Wednesday night sessions
at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow.
Other regular activities on the
SRA agenda include Friday cof-
fee hours from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at
Lane Hall and Saturday luncheon
discussion groups held at 12:15
p.m. also in Lane Hall. The
luncheons will be prepared co-
operatively by those participating.

This is the migratory season:
the Good Humor men are going
According to Al Stasie, Ann Ar-
bor's chief ice cream peddler,
most of his colleagues, like birds,
head for warmer climates in the
winter, especially California,
where they loaf, pick up odd jobs,
or continue to sell Good Humors.
BUT palm trees have no lure
for Stasie, who, after a busy
spring and summer, including a
bonanza day at the Haven Hall
fire, will temporarily forsake Good
Humors, Humorettes, I-Sticks and
just plain ice cream and retire to
"civilian" life in Detroit.
Stasie, who greets all his
customers with a broad smile
and thanks them with a snappy
salute, is typical of his trade.
So typical, in fact, that he was
recently chosen Ideal Good Hu-
mor Man of the Detroit area,
of which Ann Arbor is an "oper-
ating town." He was also run-
ner-up in the national contest.
For his honor, Stasie received
$150 and a gold pin with a minia-
te Good Humor truck on the
RULES of the contest, which
was carried on All summer, in-
cluded saluting the customers,
smiling, saying thank-you, wear-
ing a complete uniform, having
shoes shined and similar points
of personality and appearance.

But Stasie attributes his suc-
cuess chiefly to his polka-dot
tie complete with little bells.
This is his way of defying the
Ann Arbor ordinance, passed in
July, restriclg peddlers and
hawkers from ringing bells and
blowing horns to attract the
customers' attention.
Stasie, who is not in very good
humor about the ordinance, said
he has never had a complaint.
BUT EVEN without the bell, his
truck is usually surrounded by ice-
cream-hungry students and Ann
Arborites, for whom he never tires
of reeling off the names of half
a dozen flavors.
.. Students are especially good
customers, Stasie reported. But
he also has a large clientele
among females of the grade-
school set, many of whom fall
desperately in love with him
and give him their pictures. This
fatal attraction is common
among Good Humor men, Stasie
Students seem to go for the
"specials," Susie said, and the
girls in particular are always ask-
ing for chocolate chip and caramel
crunch. "They keep the company
racking its brain to think up new

speals to show it is keeping up
with the times," he declared.

THE LATEST Good Humor in-
novation is a napkin with a built-
slit, through which the stick
the Good Humor may be put.
Stasie, who works a 12-hour
day-from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.-
enjoys his job because it gives
him a chance to meet a lot of
people. Most of his customers
keep coming back for more ice
cream, and all summer long
well-wishers stopped to ask him
how he was coming along in the
But despite the fact that many
interesting things happen to him,
Stasie claims he has never had
any experiences like those of mo-
vie-actor Jack Carson in "The
Good Humor Man," to which all
Good Humor men were given free
"The MOVIE was somewhat
exaggerated," Stasie admitted,
"but I thought it was good. We
couldn't learn much from Carson,
While Stasie and his white
truck are gone, students will have
to go back to buying ice cream in
stores, until April, when, along
with baseball, the Good Humor
man will return.

Medical students who attended
the University 100 years ago were
never plagued by the academic
rat-race that present day stu-
dents face.
Student w o r r i e s centered
around the problem of mustering
enough faculty votes required for
graduation. A century ago the
Medical School faculty consisted
of five men, each of whom had

MD graduation okay.
the first man to achieve the spot-
less record of 25 votes. He later
became prominent through his
work in sanitation as professor Of
chemistry at Michigan Agricul-
ture College. '
Students were also required
to attend two full courses of
lectures. The theory behind this
repetition wa that "attendance
uponI lectures n the same sub-
ject a second time is much
more interesting . . . and pro-
fitable than the first."
Other requirements for gradu-

ation were: "complete a three
year term of study with some "re-
spectable" practitioner, attain 21
years of age and submit an ori-
ginal thesis on some medical sub-

Expenses were also quite rea-
sonable 100'years ago. The only
listed fee was $10, payable at,
once. A $1 deposit was required
to over all damages, but any
balance would be returned at
the end of the year.
In a bulletin issued by the Md-
dical School for the 1850-51 year,
tudents were informed, that

readily in private homes or hotels
of the village, for from $1.25 to $2
per week or with room, fuel, and
lights from $1.50 to $2.
