Coeds Shun Union Dispite New Rule

* * *

.* * *

The Union's new coed ruling is
working successfully.
The coeds say they can hardly
wait to be escorted there. The
staff thinks its a great idea. Even
the men are being won over to
the plan.
There's only one trouble-the
women are still staying away.
A Sunday afternoon visit to the
Union by a coed and a male es-
cort will illustrate our point:
THEY ARRIVED at 3:15 p.m.,
checked their coats and hurried
to the billiard room. They were
anxious to observe reactions of
the men to what should have been
swarms of women enjoying their
new privilege. There were no wom-
en, so the coed proceeded to take
a beating at ping-pong while they
waited for some to show up.
None came. So they tried the
pool room. The woman took les-
sons from her escort, pool room
manager Leo Kennedy, clerk
Bob Mitchell, and Union coun-
cilman Raffee Johns, '51, aided
and abetted by stares, chuckles,
cat-calls and various and sundry
manifestations of male interest.
But, at 4:15, still no women.
They stopped the "game" long
enough to question Ken Bitman,
'52. When asked what he thought
of women in the billiard room, he
sighed, "I guess I can stand it.
But I don't know any decent pool
players of the femalvariety."
* * *
AT 4:20 P.M. another women
finally appeared upon the scene.
Their Quarry walked in, hesitated,
looked around bewilderedly, and
walked out.
Deciding they were in the wrong
territory, they went downstairs to
have a cup of coffee. On the way
out, Kennedy smiled at woman,
and hoped she'd "come back soon."
A sign at the cafeteria door
made them pause. "Unescorted
ladies," it said, "will not be ad-
mitted." So the coed borrowed
a dime from her escort and went
in alone as a "test case." She
was served without a murmer.
Still undaunted by the dearth
Union Service
Will Arrange
Rides All Year
Because ofit its success I n the
past, the Union Travel Servicej
will operate throughout the school'
year, Union staffman Jack Eh-
lers, '53E, announced yesterday.
Ehlers reported that more than c
half of the drivers and riders whof
applied to the Service beforec
Christmas were accommodated.
Drivers, wishing to share ex-
penses and riders needing a lift1
for the between-semesters vaca-
tion, may sign up in the Unionl
lobby now, Ehlers said.

Attacked As
Western paganism is character-
ized by hypocritical lip-service to
Christian faith, Prof. D. Elton
Trueblood of Earlham College
charged yesterday.
Speaking to ministers assembled
for the 12th annual Michigan Pas-
tors' Conference, Trueblood warn-
ed that this type of "second degree
paganism," if carried to its logi-
cal end, will make the West easy
prey for a new authoritarianism.
Comparing religious conditions
in America to those in Russia,
Trueblood said, "Russia's pagan-
ism consists of a clear-cut denial
of God. Ours of the Western world
is less blatant, but it is equally
disloyal to the Christian cause."
"We are trying to hold on to all
the moral fruits of Christianity
-the Christian sense of integrity,
the basic idea of the equality of
man, the idea of life-long fidelity
--but we do not want to pay for
them with a real commitment of
ourselves to the Christian faith,"
he declared.
Prof. Trueblood will deliver the
last of his lectures on Paganism
at 9 a.m. today in Rackham audi-
torium. He will discuss "The Pro-
gram for the Church of Tomor-
The closing assembly of the'
Pastors' Conference will take place
at 11:45 p.m. in Rackham audi-
torium. The Rev. Boynton Merrill,
of the F i r s t Congregational
Church of Columbus, Ohio, will
deliver a sermon, "The Greatest
Invasion Ever Made."

'U' To Give
'Flu' Shots
Students will have a chance to
get protection from influenza
without cost, Dr. Warren Forsythe,
director of Health Service, an-
nounced yesterday.
He said that free injections of
influenza vaccine would be start-
ed tomorrow morning and conti-
nue until noon Saturday at the
Health Service building. Students
should enter by the north door
for the shots.
Faculty and staff members, as
well as student wives, can get the
flu injections at a cost of one dol-
lar. These persons should report
first to the Health Service cash-
ier's office.
"Because of the reports of a
widespread influenza epidemic in
England, the University has decid-
ed the expense involved in pro-
viding the free innoculations for
the student body is justified," Dr.
Forsythe said.
Lane Hall Peace
Group To Meet
Plans for campus peace action
will be discussed at a meeting of
the Lane Hall Peace Conference
planning committee at 8p m., to-
morrow at the League, according
to Henry Jarecki, '52, coordinator.
All who attended the original
peace conference are invited to at-
tend, Jarecki said.

of females, they proceeded to thet
bowling alleys. There, clerk Ed Up-a
son told them that they had stock-i
ed women's bowling shoes anda
lightweight balls in expectation ofi
a coed rush. He thought having
women around was fine. No wom-
en around.

THEY PROCEEDED to question
some of the assembled men. Jim
Richter, '51 was unenthused about
it all. "I don't like long hair
around billiard tables," he growled.
But Ken Ross, '53E thought bet-
ter of the idea. "I'd like to see
more women here," he said.
"They're stimulating to look at."
