Summer employment and a way

"THEY SEEM to be increasing
daily in both size and number,"
Prof. Angell complained. "The sec-
retary has refused to come to work
unescorted and has hinted that
she may quit if they are not elim-
inated soon.
"Besides," he added, "I'm wor-
ried about what might result if
they decide to nestle among our
records and manuscripts."
Furthermore, these rats are a.
serious threat to the future of
the sociology department, Prof.
Angell asserted. "Because of them
we may lose personnel, frighten
away students who come to us for
information and be left with only
half eaten fragments of important
projects and surveys."
"I hope this complaint will bring
the situation to the eyes of whoever
is in charge of the extermination-
of such pests before it is too late,"
he concluded.
Senior Class Gift
Thie Senior Class has announced
that they will follow the policy
used by the class of '50 in regard
to their class gift to the University.
A fund will be established with
the money left from this year's
expenses plus donations at class
reunions from now until 1976. At
that time the money will be used
for a gift for the University.

Phoenix officials claim that
they are not in any sort of ac-
tive competition with a similar

project in atomic research at
the University of Chicago.
"The field is so gigantic," one
spokesman pointed out, "that sub-
ject matter cannot be exhausted."
He added that the two universities
are not competing for researchers,
because they use members of their
own faculties.
The Chicago plan is one of in-

Heart Patients, Doctor Says

Place Your Orders

Heart patients can feel perfect-

in one hand and a cocktail glass
in the other, according to a Phila-
delphia heart specialist.

of cardiology at the University of
Pennsylvania Graduate School of
Seniors Urged
To Carve Soon
Seniors who wish to carve their
names in the special Union tap-
room table must do it today, Mark
Oscherwitz, '53, Union councilman,
has warned.
Carvers need only show their ID
cards at the ground floor check-
room where they will be issued
the tools.

The professor advocated a more

Frustration caused by giving up too
many things makes the blood pres-

Univexsity Hospital officials have
other ideas. One doctor, who did
not wish to be quoted, said that
while this recommendation is no-
thing new or startling, it does not
hold water.
Nicotine and alcohol do not af-

lungs and nervous system, he ex-

KNOWN TO the Michigamua tribe as
ers as "Smiling Dave," the Sioux
City native has picked up an as-
tonishing list of Greek titles dur-
ing his three-year stay at Michi-
gan. However, he insists that all
are scholastic and professional
Belin, a 22-year-old scholar-
politician due to graduate this
June, started his slightly suc-
cessful campus career on the
Vaughan House Council. By
the time he was through, he
found himself president of the
Young Republicans, treasurer of
the literary college senior class,
a member of the Student Legis-
lature cabinet and a standout on
the varsity debating team.
But his chief claim to campus
renown is the now-famous "Belin
Plan" for a longer Thanksgiving
Holiday. Although the proposal
has met consistently with admin-
istrative cold shoulders, Belin is
still optimistic about its eventual
approval. "Wait until my kid
brother gets up here," is now his
* . .
THE BELIN prescription for
success has been 8 hours of sleep
a night, a jigger or two of -deter-
mination, a bow tie and maize and
blue hat, a "Howdy" greeting, the
women's vote and the motto :
"Never let studies interfere wtih
your education."
Add to this a somewhat un-
usual background of his wartime
role as violinist for Gen. Mac-
Arthur's headquarters and a
summer job as foreman of a
corn detassling crew of women
and you have the Belin story in
a nutshell.
Brains seem to have come in -
handy, too. After running straight
A's in high school, Belin averaged
18 hours a semester here, finishing
his AB requirements in 3 years.
He will presumably receive his
masters in business administration
in 1953 and graduate from the
University Law School inr1954.
Although it seems inconceivable
that he could add anything new
to his extra-curricular record, Be-
lin insists, "I'm not retiring by
a long shot."
