While rain was falling outside,
snow balls were flying inside the
Phi Rho house. Disregarding Mo-

"manufactured" snow with the aid
of a gasoline motor, ethal chlor-

The secret of success in making
synthetic snow was not discovered
without several trial tests. 'The
snow was finally produced when a
gasoline motor compressed air
which caused ethal chloride to be
sprayed into a deep freezer.
Twenty-five pound blocks of ice

The stairway was converted into

IT'S A TOUCHDOWN--Loraine Stuerzl carries the ball across the
goal line in the first Footbowl game, held on the diag. Sparking
her teammates to a 12-6 victory over the men, Loraine leads with
a flying wedge. The game was held as a publicity stunt for the
Independent-sponsored dance, A-Hop, to be held Saturday, from
9 p.m. to 1 a.m. in the League.

Rusty bicycles for sale, rides to
football games for hire and houses
for rent-these are just a few of
the numerous notices that can be
found on the many bulletin boards
no campus.
Few students realize the import-
ant function these handy bits of
wood perform at the University.
For example there are over 200
notices on the Union bulletin board
at all times. The variety of sub-
jects posted on the board have
given it the title of the campus
swap shop.
In order to accommodate the
large flow of advertising, the Un-
ion officials have issued a new rul-
ing to the bulletin board. All no-
tices to be placed on the board
must be typed on 3 by 5 inch cards
and approved by the officials in
the Union Student Offices.
To clear the constant muddle
caused by the many notices, a new
system of placing ads for similar
things on brightly colored pieces
of paper will be started by the Un-
ion in the near future.
Coeds plagued by bleak, barren
dormitory walls have found bulle-
tin boards to be a decorating aid.
By hanging a bulletin board on
one of the walls and covering it
with dance favors and pictures of
their favorite beaus, coeds can
brighten up their rooms and give
them a collegiate look.
A spirit of rivalry is often start-
ed by roommates to see who can
collect the most party favors and
knick-nacks to hang on their
bulletin boards.
To keep students informed and
to give them some timely reading
material while smoking a between-
classes cigarette in Angell Hall,

the journalirm department main-
tains a bulletin board in the An-
gell Hall lobby on which the latest
news dispatches are placed.
If any student needs anything
from a few rusty fish hooks to a
coed to type his English themes,
he needs only to look on one of
the many campus bulletin boards
to satisfy his needs.
Ten Counselors
In League Off ice
To Ai dRushees
In preparation for the informal
rushing session whch will begin
Oct. 23, rushing counselors are
now holding office hours from 3
to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday
in the Undergraduate Office of
the League.
Marianna Larson, chairman of
the counselors, has urged senior,
junior and sophomore coeds who
are interested in rushing to con-
tact their counselors as soon as
Ten counselors each year are
chosen from ten sorority houses
to aid rushees in the complicated
business of rushing.
Coeds who have these jobs are
for all purposes disaffiliated from
their houses, since they do not
wear their pins, nor do they enter
into their houses' rushing periods
at any time.
Since the installation of this
system two years ago, much im-
provement has been made, and
League officers feel that it has
become an important part of

Synthetic Snow, Ice Create
Atmosphere at Phi Rho Party

The diagonal was the scene of
a strange footbowl game yesterday
when the Kickoffs met the A-Hops
in a clash that will probably make
advertising history.
Under the coaching of Alberta
Corht, the Kickoffs, team of
eleven Michigan men, and the A-
Hops, composed of evelen Michi-
gan co-eds (and three Michigan
men) took the field in a publicity
stunt for the Independent's annual
dance, A-Hop, to be held Satur-
A band, featuring Bob Leopold
on trumpet, Dave Cavitch on the
saxophone and Jack Robertson
pounding the drums, played typi-
cal football music, including the
'Victors' and 'Varsity.' Leopold
also refereed the game, with slight
leanings towards the girls' team.
Cheers were led for an enthusi-
astic audience by Tom Leopold,
complete with huge A-Hop mega-

The game was played on a
unique gridiron. Instead of yard
markers, the distances were mark-
ed by days of the week. Wed-
nesday stood at the fifty yard
line, with the goal being Satur-
day, the night of A-Hop. Thurs-
day and Friday stood at appropri-
ate intervals.
The final score, as one might
suspect, was A-Hops 12, Kickoffs
6. Both touchdowns for the girls
were made by Loraine Stuerzl, on
a flashing pass attack accompan-
ied by a flying wedge.
Jim Kanitz scored for the men
in the first half on a pass from his
