Coed Conducts Unusual Research

* * *

Whether or not a University
coed receives more phone calls on
rainy days than on clear days has
been the subject of a research ex-
periment by Joan Nelson, '52.
"One conclusion my roommate
and I have reached is that show-
ers indoors and not outdoors are
the deciding factor in the number
of phone calls which we receive
from members of the opposite
sex," Miss Nelsoa reported yes-

"THE FIRST four weeks we
counted an average of .9 phone
calls per shower," she explained.
"To combat this we have been
taking tub baths in our room,"
she added.
The research began last fall
when she and her roommate ran
out of knitting -yarn and had
nothing to do in the evening.
They went to work making col-
ored charts on which to tabu-
late their phone calls.
The research came to a toa-
porary halt in the spring when
Miss Nelson became pinned to a
fraternity man.

"HE NEVER called, rain or
shine," she explained, "so it no
longer seemed necessary to con-
tinue the experiment."
In the interest of science,
however, she has decided to con-
tinue the research hoping in
addition to determine whether
fraternity or independent men
are more apt to call on rainy

p.m. Saturday at the Rackham

The theme for the costume
dance wil center around the idea
of Dante's Divine Comedy, with
the center of the hall serving as
purgatory, the right annex, hell
and the left annex, heaven.
In order to secure entrance

or hell, students must tell the

sons for seeking admission.
An Angel and the devil will be
posted at the gates to judge upon
the answers and permit or refuse
Decorations will be of abstract
design, with purgatory being a
reflection of reality, hell a vision
of ugliness and heaven being
everything of the beautiful, ac-

IN PREVIOUS years the title of
the theme has been kept secret,
but due to someone's slip, Central

Michigan Panhellenic Associa-
tion is sponsoring a booth for the
purpose of selling bus tickets on
both local and out of state lines.
Previously tickets are sold only
by the Union on campus. Al-
though the Union is still selling
the tickets, they sell only on local
* * *
BARB ELLIOTT, vice president
of Panhel Board, and chairman of
this project, has stated that she
and the Board feel that the booth
will be a profitable enterprise.
Coeds have signed up to sell
the tickets and were instructed
in the art of selling by two
agents of well known bus com-
However, the coeds found that
selling was a more complicated
business than they had anticipat-
ed, and they are keeping the
phone number of a local company
handy in case of any question
that might arise.
SINCE THE booth was started
only a short time ago, Miss Elliott
has found it difficult to estimate
an expected profit.
According to the agents, most
of the business can be expected
just before the holidays, al-
though a standing number of
tickets will be sold each week-
Panhellenic operates the busi-
ness on a commission basis, receiv-

ing a commission from every tick-
et sold.
The women working on the
booth also receive a commission
for their selling time.
Panhel Board expects the bus
route to be changed to go by the"
League soon, since at the present
time it does not.
The booth is located in the
League lobby and is open from 9
a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday
through Saturday. At other times
tickets may be, purchased in the
