Lipstick Sheep Shearing
Cause Students' Concern

LOOK and LISTEN
.with HARRY REED

By CAL SAMRA
The nation's collegiates were ap-
parently concerned with every-
thing under the sun last week, in-
cluding lipstick, tuition, sheep
A shearing, pinball machines, and
grants to "AngloiSaxon" medical
students.
AT Northwestern University,
male students abruptly became in-
terested in a sophomore dance. The
reason why:
Sophomore girls (stationed in
appropriate corners) were hand-
ing out luscious kisses to each
male ticket buyer. In fact, kisses
were bestowed from 8:30 a.m. to
1:30 p.m. daily upon ticket buy-
ers for a week.
The dance was a big success.
* * *
THE OSCULATION problem was
also bothering the student news-
paper, "Lantern" at Ohio State
last week. Student editorialists be-
moaned the discovery of a "kiss-
proof lipstick which is guaranteed
not to rub off on the male."
'Wednesday's
Tag DayT Goal
Set at $4,000
Wednesday is Tag Day, and stu-
dent volunteers will man collection
buckets all over campus and Ann
Arbor in hopes of raising $4000 to
help defray the, expenses of the
f University Fresh Air Camp for un-
derprivileged children.
The nine-week camp, under the
direction of Prof. William Morse
of the education school, will open
this year on June 18.
Money collected goes to defray
about one-third of the operating
costs of the camp. Charity funds
are allocated to paying for food,
equipment and other costs of the
campers, rather than covering any
of the expenses of the University
staff.
The remainder of the funds
come from the University Sum-
mer Session and the Institute for
Human Adjustment.
The Fresh Air Camp is located
on Patterson Lake, 24 miles from
Ann Arbor.
Alumni Meeting
The University chapter of Sigma
Delta Chi, professional journalism
fraternity, will hold its first alum-
ni reunion May 27.
The reunion, a picnic at the Sa-
line Valley Farms, will be an ad-
vance rally for the fraternity's Na-
tional Convention which is to be
f held at Detroit in the fall.

One perturbed writer noted :
"This may well deal a blow to
male vanity."
Another wondered how coeds,
"who want to leave their mark on
a man as a sign of ownership,"
would react.
* * *
BUT IF Northwestern and Ohio
State students were concerned
about lip-stick, University of Chi-
cago students were faced with a
more formidable problem.
The dean of students an-
nounced a new tuition level,
which will almost double the
1944 fee of $318.
University of Chicago students
will be paying $600 starting next
year. Numerous squaks arose.
OHIO STATE is sponsoring a
course in advanced sheep manage-
ment this semester.
Members of the Ohio Sheep
Shearers Association came to the
campus and demonstrated to 72
curious students "the art of
shearing sheep."
*, * *
OUT WEST, pinball machines
have been recently installed in the
Kansas State University Union.
Officials said the primary rea-
son for the contraptions is to
"increase the revenue for the
Union."
AND AT Harvard University, the
Medical School established a $200,-
000 scholarship fund "preferably
for applicants of 'Anglo-Saxon an-
cestry'."
Commenting on the donation, an,
official said that "Harvard would
not accept any gift that went
against the University's principles.
Men are accepted into the Medical
School without bias."
But, he went on to say, "we need
more scholarship money and the
gift is appreciated for helping to
fill that need."

Shrewd Lawyers Steal Slide Rules

There seems to be a trend emerg-
ing to place well-known Holly-
wood stars, often married couples,
in serious radio dramas.
This is a laudable move if they
are chosen for dramatic ability,
but I think more often it is the
name they carry that gets them
chosen for the parts. Desi Arnez
and wife'Lucille Ball did a pass-
able job on "Suspense" a few weeks
ago, and now Phil Harris and wife
Alice Faye are going to take a
whack at a similar assignment.
They'll play two strangers
trapped by a lynch mob, Harris
as "Dixie," a piano player ac-
quitted of an accidental death,
and the missus as Julia, a friend
who tries to help him against
the mob.
I think there's a mental picture
of certain long-standing radio
comedy stars and movie people
which prevents many listeners
from completely associating them
with serious dramatic perform-
ances. If the idea is designed to
get more listeners, it probably suc-
ceeds, but most people won't think
of the piano player as being Harris,
but rather Harris as being the
piano player.

Arthur Wiltse, 57 years old, own-

Union. The engineers were so sure
that the lawyers would never think
of looking there that they had re-
laxed their vigil.
** *
THEN A FEW HOURS before
the dance, several law students
learned that there was another
slide rule, in the gymnasium of the
Intramural Building.
On the basis of this news and
aid, promptly at 10:45 p.m. the
victorious lawyers entered the
League ballroom where the
Crease Ball was being held, tri-
umphantly carrying both slide
rules.
Amid a fanfare from the band,
and cheers from the attending
lawyers and dates, the slide rules
were presented to the Chancellor of
the Barristers, A. N. DelPesco,
'51L, and William Flaskamp, '51L,
chairmen of the dance.

lost rules heard that the lawyers
had them on display, and invad-
ed the dance.
To retain control of the slide
rules, the lawyers removed them
from the wires, placed them on the
floor, and stood on them.
However, realizing that the re-
turn of the slide rules would ce-
ment the atmosphere of friendly
rivalry between the 'two groups,
they returned the rules to the frus-
trated engineers.

"A rose by any other name"
could never smell as sweet as the
MacArthur rose-at least not dur-
ing this spring of MacArthur hero
worship.
The MacArthur Rose, a red tea-
rose on sale at a local dimestore,
has enjoyed a tremendous rise in
popularity since the general was
fired from his Far Eastern com-
mand.
Enthusiastic customers are for-
saking most other varieties in fa-
vor of the bush named for the
former UN commander. One wom-
an changed her selection of plants
completely upon noticing the Mac-
Arthur Rose.

Roses are not the only commodi-
ty profiting from the current poli-
tical and military controversy. Toy
shops report that tin replicas of
MacArthur are selling like hot-
cakes.
I Many adults as well as children
are purchasing the famous soldier
in a tan uniform complete with
crushed cap and corn cob pipe.
Even parts of MacArthur's
speech before Congress aren't safe
from the new craze. Vaughn Mon-

rushing out with a revival of the
Old Soldier Ballad the general re-

his address.

Prof. Slosson then continued
with a condemnation of loyaltyj

group, h'e'll sign any number of

EARLIER, on the suggestion of
Prof. Edgar W. Waugh of Michigan
State Normal College, the federa-
tion set up a committee to write
a pamphlet taking their charges
of inadequate pay to the people.
Habitual slashes by the State Leg-
islature of education appropria-
tions have left teachers' salaries
far behind those of other salary
groups, the teachers-maintained.
"Morale at Ypsilanti is the
lowest ever," Prof. Waugh as-
serted. Recent salary cuts at the
nearby college necessitated by
scanty appropriations were cited
as examples of the financial
squeeze the teachers are now un-
der.
The serious effects of this
economic neglect of teachers is
evident in the decline of faculty
research work at teachers colleges,
he said. Because of their low sal-
aries, they must secure outside
jobs which consume all the time
normally devoted to research.

The giant ostrich is no giant atR

share of troubles-he has to lie
down and hide when he gets scar-

"He may be the biggest and
most powerful of birds, but he
can't meet danger standing on his
own two feet," Irving Reimann,
Prefect of the University Museum
Exhibits, said, "and, incidentally,
he doesn't bury his head in the

with those long spindly legs.
But the beautiful white feath-
ers taken from the lower wings
have lured many men to over-
lo6k these invitations to death
and to concentrate on the invi-
tations to wealth these feathers
afford.
"The scarcity of the ostrich and
the increasing value of his feath-
ers have tempted many a breeder,
to overlook the devilish disposition
he has' to deal with. Although the
bird feels no pain when his wings
are clipped, a bag is usually tied
around his head just for safety's
sake," Reimann explained.

"HE KICKS forward with them

Jim Smith, '53L, a past presi-

since the Council began super-
vising certain parts of the elec-

creased considerably.
The Council occasionally gets
