WALL STREET REVOLT:
Trio Become Greeting Card 'Magnates'

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

ELIUSINE/M

By GAYLE GREENE
With the goal of revolutionizing
the business world and the prom-
ise of "a free quart of milk to ev-
ery Ann Arbor policeman when
we're millionaires," three Univer-
sity students have become greet-
ing card "magnates."
The trio, made up of an artist,
a self-styled whimsical cynic and
an heroic-couplet-type poet were
inspired by a notice in the Daily
announcing special rates for clas-
sified section birthday greetings.
"HAVING LITTLE else to do,"
they began to make up greetings
they would have sent to famous
people, according to Stu Ross,
155A. "Like Happy Birthday, Tou-
louse-Lautrec. You may be short
but what the heck," Ross illus-
trated.
"Our next illogical step," said
Ross, "was to draw the verses
up on greeting cards. Friends
kept dropping in and everybody
said they were kind of great so
we chose a name for the com-
pany (Finger Prints), a trade-
mark, (the artist's own index
finger print) and a slogan,
'Christmas cards for all occa-
sions,' and took the cards to a
local bookstore. The bookstore
magnate thought they were real
fine and put them on sale," Ross
said.
Stationing themselves at the
book shop just long enough to
see ten cards sold in the first hour,
the men then rushed home to do
some more, shouting "Happy
Birthday Vasco De Gama, where'd
you put my top pajama?"
With mass production of the
cards scheduled for this week only
a few of the hand drawn collec-
tor's items will be left on sale,
Ross said.
* * *
THE TRIUMVIRATE hopes to
expand distribution by marketing
the cards in Detroit and New York
but have decided when the busi-
ness reaches the point where it is
no longer pure fun but tedious
work, they will go into retirement.
In the meantime they plan to
devote one month of every year
to buying ridiculous items. "I
SL Launches
Aid Program
(Continued from Page 1)
It provides material aid for
refugees from East Berlin and
their relations. An elaborate
warning system has also been
organized by the Office for 26,-
000 professors and students in
the Soviet Zone. Residents of the
Eastern Zone report which aca-
demic people have been or are
about to be arrested by Soviet
officials to the Office of All-
German Student Affairs which
in turn warns those in danger
and helps them across the bor-
der.
Changes in curricula of Eastern
Zone schools are described in de-
tail and evaluated by the Office
whenever they occur as an aid in
placing refugees who want to
study at a West German school.
Angell To Discuss
UNESCO's Work
"The UNESCO Approach to In-
ternational Problem Solving" will
be discussed by Prof. Robert C.
Angell of the sociology depart-
ment at 7:30 p.m. today in Audi-
torium C, Angell Hall.
Prof. Angell was acting director
of the social science department
of UNESCO in 1949-50, and was a
member of the United States dele-
gation to the 7th General Confer-

ence held in Paris.
At present he is vice-chairman
of the United States National
commission for UNESCO.
Geologist To Talk
Gerald F. Fitzgerald, chief top-
ographic engineer, United States
Geological Survey, Washington,
D.C., will discuss "Mapping Meth-
ods of Today" at 4:15 p.m. today
in Rm. 2054 Natural Science Bldg.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY GERTRUDE STEIN-"This rose is mine is
mine is mine is mine," reads the greeting card Miss Stein holds
proudly in a painting by Pablo Picasso. The card is one of a
series of "Finger Prints" designed by a triumvirate of Univer-
sity students.

want an IBM machine to drape
my trousers over at night," said
one of the partners, Don Mal-
colm, '53.
"We will offer ten thousand dol-
lars to the University as soon as
we make a million, if Harlan Hat-
cher will carry a freshman's suit-
case from the station to his dormi-
tory," Malcolm said.
"And maybe we will construct
special statues just for pigeons,"
he mused.

won't be bothered by autograph
hounds," Ross said. I guess we
really are celebrities, he con-
cluded, stamping a finger print
on another card with the verse:
