Clerk Stalks Quad During Wee Hours
4 * * * *
Probably no one on campus is
mnore alert to the sound of foot-
steps than Theodore Kaarsberg,
West Quad's night watchman.
But if the footsteps are neither
those of a stranger, a rabble-
rouser, a woman, or an intoxicat-
ed student, Kaarsberg is unper-
urbed and continues his regular
nocturnal duties.
* * *
THE GRAY-HAIRED and con- :
genial Quad sentry admitted that .
his duties (as "night clerk," not
watchman) are rather tedious.
Five nights a week, Kaarsberg :
naintains a steady watch from 2
10:30 p.m. to 6 a.m. before the
hadowy entrance of West Quad. =
Nevertheless, he enjoys his
solitude. His duties, he explain-
ed, keep him quite busy. :::,
Aside from his night time spr- .
reillance of the Quad, Kaarsb'erg
has the enormous task of making
)ut dining room cards every:
ponsibility, of course, is to main- <
ain the "peace, quiet, order and
ecurity" of the Quad and to.- :
heck all transients, non-residents,
and strangers who appear therein.

The bushy-browed Norwegian
is well qualified to fulfill his
Quad duties. He wears a gold
Good Conduct pin presented to
him as a reward for 20 years
service with a well-known elec-
trical company.
Starting his fourth month of
niight watching for the Quad,
Kaarsberg lauded the conduct of
the Quad's residents. "Generally,
they don't cause me any trouble,"
he insisted.
But every so often, he said, stu-
dents stagger precariously by him.
"As long as they can navigate, I
leave them alone," he confessed.
As for rabble-rousers, strangers,
gamblers, and "Anti-vereinigessta-
ituosenwarehandlers" (b o o t 1 e g-
gers, Kaarsberg has no sympathy
with them.
Contrary to an article in yes-
terday's Daily, teachers' certifi-
cate application forms will re-
tain the question on place of
It was incorrectly reported by
the Student Legislature Sub-com-
mittee on Discrimination that the
question was to be removed from
the applications.

THE EYES HAVE IT-Theodore- Kaarsberg, night clerk at West
Quad, keeps a close watch on Marvin Leech, "55 A&D, as Leech
strolls down the first floor corridor at 1 a.m. In the morning,
Leech explained that he was bout for a "whiff of air." Leech's ex-
yplanation stuck, and he ambled away.
rU' Coed Seeking Companions
For Adventurous Rdiver Ride

is what YOU need
on Picnies


Mary Ellin McCrady, '51, had
considered the idea of taking an
open-raft trip down the Mississip-
pi for a long time.
Then she read the best-selling
adventure tale, , "Kon-Tiki," and
decided to go.
IF MISS McCRADY can round-
up from three to five other'ad-
venturous tars, she'll be off July
1 on a three-month excursion from
Pittsburgh to New Orleans on a
home-made raft. .
The blond sociology major
from Ann Arbor plans to take
the exciting trip chiefly because
"it will help a few people to get
to know a small number of other
people very well." But she added,
"it'll also be a lot of fun, and
should be filled with adventure."
Miss McCrady has spent num-
Crib Society
Picks Leaders
Jerry Warren, '52, was chosen
president of the Michigan Crib,
campus pre-law society, in a re-
cent election of officers for the
1951-52 year.
Other officers are: Larry Price,
'53, vice-president; Frank Reed,
'52, recording secretary; Gene
Mossner, '52, corresponding secre-
tary; and Lea Eisner, '53, treas-
The Michigan Crib is organized
to familiarize undergraduates in-
terested in law with the require-
ments and offerings of law

Get It at

erous summers with work camps
of the "Service Civile Interna-
tionale," a pacifist organization.
There, she became interested in
community life and got the germ
of an idea for the trip.
After reading "Kon-Tiki," the
tale of a raft trip from Peru to
Polynesia, she made up her mind
that she too could take a rela-
tively long trip, on the barest of
SHE PLANS to start off the trip
with about $20 from each person
on the trip. With that capital,
they'll build a raft from oil drums
and two-by-fours, purchase a
stove, a lantern and a tent for use
in case of bad weather.
In order to buy food, the group
will stop along the way to aid
in the harvesting of crops. Miss
McCrady plans to spend a few
weeks in New Orleans earning
her way by ,oing minstrel work
with a guitar. She hopes that
some of her companions can al-
so play instruments. Then her
plans call for hitch-hiking back
to Ann Arbor and ending the
journey sometime in September.
So far, Miss McCrady has no
definite travel companions, al-
though she has a tentative reser-
vationtfrom a sociology graduate
student who wants to- study the
group. She would like to hear from
any students that are interested
in taking the trip, and will meet
students at 4:30 p.m. Monday in
the League lobby.
* * *
THOSE WHO are interested but
cannot attend the meeting can
reach her at 2-4819.
Miss McCrady says that she
would prefer to have the trip an
all-girl adventure, but will not be
too particular about taking men
if necessary.
She would prefer to have an ar-
tistic group along for the trip.
She plans to read more than 15
books herself and would welcome
a painter who would like to paint
either the sights along the trip or
the other travellers.
The deadline for submitting
Men's Judiciary petitions will be
Tuesday, according to Student
Legislatui-e officials.
Petitioning is open to all male
students. Candidates will be inter-
viewed May 10. Petitions may be
secured from 3 to 5 p.m. in the
SL building, 122 S. Forest.

TIME OUT-University Day female visitors took a break for lunch at Stockwell Hall. These Battle
Creek High School seniors thought the tuna fish sandwiches were "pretty good" but their male class-
mates over at East Quadrangle sounded more like University freshman in their description of the
meal served there-cheese sandwiches. More than 500 high school students from Michigan and
Northern Ohio roamed campus yesterday, arriving at 9 a.m. and climbing back on their special buses
at 4 p.m. In the interim they heard talks by University and Union officials, visited counselors -in all
schools and saw movies of the 1951 Rose Bowl game.1'
