Students desiring a ride home
or to the vacation spot of their
choice may still seek aid at the
Union's free Travel Service.
This service, conveniently locat-
ed in the main lobby of the Union,
endeavors to match up students
wanting rides and those desiring
passengers, to the mutual advan-
tage of both.
Blue driver cards and red rider
cards are provided for thie students
to fill out. They are filed alpha-
betically according to the state as
soon as they are received.
The cards are matched immed-
iately after the necessary number
of riders for a driver is obtained.
The Travel Service then contacts
the driver, so that he may call his
The driver is asked to inform the
service if he has the correct num-
ber of passengers. This is requir-
ed in order to avoid matching one
rider with more than one driver.
A map has been placed above the
counter of the Travel Service so
that drivers and riders may tell at
once what cards are already in.
In this way they may easily deter-
mine their relative chances.
