Al Stasie, district manager of
the Good Humor Co., who today
chugs out of Ann. Arbor for the
last time this year, thus becomes a
reluctant symbol.
STASIE, who became a district
manager at the beginning of this
year as the result of a state-wide
sales contest, described Ann Ar-
bor as his favorite spot for ped-
dling Good Humors.
With most Good Humor men
headed back to college during
the past 14 days and a two
week's supply of ice cream re-
maining to be sold, business
seemed about to melt away.
Stasie therefore took up the sell-
ing job during the past two weeks
and has been renewing acquaint-

SDA is not new on campus. It
was formed shortly after World
War II by University veterans. Al-
though it was inactive last fall,
the club was reorganized in the
Since its reorganization, the

for the exotic, Stasie listed their
favorites when the Good Humor
truck rounds out its day on Ob-
servatory Hill each evening.
THE LIST included such palate
tempting flavors and blends as
carmel crunch, chocolate chip,
peanut brittle, mint, pistachio and
toasted almond.
Stasie, who completely emptied
his truck the night of the Haven
Hall fire, finds that he has most
difficulty with uncooperative po-
lice who insist on rigid obedience
of all parking laws.

seat of his white freezer truck the
Good Humor man promised an
early return next spring.
Joint Judiciary
Fills Campus
Court Function
(Continued from Page 1)
Today the separate councils still
handle cases peculiar to their own
jurisdictions. The Women's House
Judiciary Councils, for instance,
take care of infractions of wo-
men's hours.
However, the Joint Judiciary
has gradually taken on the ma-
jor case burden with regard to
violation of general University
Lastspring a new constitution,
designed to provide a more repre-
sentative and centralized student
judiciary organization, was passed
by the Student Affairs Committee.
Final SAC approval was unani-
mous, although the League had
registered strong opposition to the
constitution when it was originally
Before the document was pre-
sented to the Board of Regents
for final approval, however, it
was learned that the new consti-
tution should have been submitted
to the Committee on Student Con-
duct instead of the SAC.
Composed of all the deans and
directors of the University, with
four student members, the Com-
mittee on Student Conduct has
not met for over two years. Its
functions are not clearly de-
Under the proposed constitu-
tion, Judiciary members would be
chosen by a special Interviewing
Committee composed of the presi-
dent, vice-president, treasurer and
recording secretary of SL, and the
president and interviewing board
chairman of the League, with the
chairman and vice-chairman of
Joint Judiciary advising.
Until a change in the composi-
tion of Joint Judiciary member-
ship is officially approved, it will
continue to function as it original-
ly was organized, under the auth-
ority of the President of the Uni-
Talks on U.S.
To Be Given
The first of a series of 11 in-
formative lectures for foreign stu-
dents on campus will be presented
at 8 p.m. today in Rackham Lec-
ture Hall.
Bill Zerman, assistant to the
Dean of Students will speak on
"Know Your University."

CHAIRMAN OF the series, Miss
Sarah Grollman, has planned lec-
tures which will include informa-
tion on study, politics, the press,
boy-girl relations, manners and

customs, marriage and family, and
Gafton Sigur, assistant director
of the International Center has
urged that American students also
attend. Through informal discus-
sions after the lectures, both for-
eign students and American stu-
dents can exchange ideas and be-
come more familiar with our ways,
he said.
Block-M Section
Termed Success
The Wolverine Club-sponsored
Block-M section made a success-
ful debut at Saturday's football
game, according to Jack Gray, '53,
co-chairman of the Block-M.
Although the flash card display
was shortened by a breakdown of
the public address system, mem-
bers of the committee reported
that they were satisfied with the
initial attempt.
At future games the stunts will
be performed at half-time and
will last longer.
