rish Ladies Hockey Team

Ties All-American Squad

Over 1,000 spectators watched
an All-American women's hockey
team battle the previously unde-
feated Irish Ladies Touring Team
to a 3-3 deadlock at Palmer field
during the Thanksgiving recess.
The Irish team concluded its
two months' tour as guests of the
United States Field Hockey Asso-
ciation by competing in this an-
nual national tournament.
The Irish colleens also put on
exhibition matches each day. In
the Friday matches they defeated
New Atlantic, 6-0, and Philadel-
phia I, 4-0. Philadelphia I "had
previously defeated Philadelphia
II by a score of 2-1.
Saturday, under wet, rainy
weather conditions, the Irish team
opposed and defeated the Great
Lakes eleven, representing Michi-
gan and Ohio, 3-0.
Tournament chairman Helen
Stewart, of the University Wom-
en's Physical education depart-
ment, said that she considered the
tournament "an outstanding suc-

Matches ran continuously from
8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Thursday
through Saturday, including lunch
hours, in order to provide time for
all participants to play.
Each match lasted one hour
with 30 minute halves. No substi-
tutions were permitted except in
cases of injury.
Irish Team
All players of the Irish team
came from Dublin or Belfast with
the exception of Alma Gayer of
Cork who was one of several office
workers in the group.
There were three teachers on
the team. Irish sisters are on the
team. Alice Cleary, when not tour-
ing with the team or practicing,
spends her time as a social service
worker in a hospital, while her
sister and team member Mary
works as a chemist. Other team
members have occupations such as
architects, barristers and radio-

After the tournament was over
the still undefeated Irish team left
for more exhibition matches in
Detroit and New York. They will
sail on the Brittanica tomorrow
for Ireland.

With TD now playing the trom-
bone and Jimmy the saxaphone,
the men formed their own aggre-
gation, known as the Dorsey Nov-
elty Band. The group's appear-
ances in Pennsylvania soon at-
tracted the attention of the
scouts and led to engagements with
a jazz outfit in Scranton, Pa.
Subsequent performances wvith
the nation's top bands led the Dor-
sey brothers to form their own
band again, in 1934. This band
featured Bob Crosby as vocalist
and Glenn Miller, second trom-
bone. Two years later Tommy and
Jimmy decided to "go" it indi -
vidually and the two Dorsey Or-
chestras emerged.
Musical Reunion
The Dorsey orchestra which will
appear on the J-Hop band stand
marks the third musical reunion
of the two careers.
The Commanders, described by
J-Hop general chairman Mark
Gallon as "an up and coming band
on the east coast," was conceived
by Camarata. Originally used as
accompanists for big-name vocal
artists by a national recording
company, the Commanders fea-
ture a sound and rhythm which
they describe as "unique and dif-

Reservations for J-Hop may be
made from 1 to 5 p.m. Wednesday,

Reservations may be made this
year on any of the three days,
without regard to class.

of Activity

Michigras parada-goers of last
year will remember the excellent
horsemanship displayed by Uni-
versity students squeezed among
the floats.
The riders belong to the Wom-
en's Athletic Association's co-rec-
reational Riding Club which meets
at 7 p.m. every Tuesday and
At one time, this club was one
of the strongest on campus but
due to the war years and those
following, facilities were too poor
for the club to function properly.
The group was reorganized last
year with Jaylee Duke as its man-
ager. It started out with 18 mem-
bers and increased to 50 active

This semester Miss Gertsner said
that a sleighride is being planned.
"Capture the Flag"
Games on horseback are very
popular with the members, one
game being "Capture the Flag."
The group is divided into two op-
posing teams and each is given a
flag. The aim of the game is either
to capture the opposing team's flag
or tag all the players on the op-
posite team.
Students also participate in re-
lays which require much skill. Cal-
isthenics are performed on horses
with expert equestrians rolling
over in the saddles or dismount-
ing from horses when they are in
full canter.
During the first part of Decem-
ber, members will be chosen on
the basis of how well they ride to
join "Crop and Saddle," which is
the club's precision drill team.
Beginners Instruction
Instruction will be given to be-
ginners who wish to join the club
by more experienced members.
There will be a general meeting at
7 p.m. today in Barbour Gym for
all students interested.

(Author of'"Barefoot Boy With Cheek," eta.)
On every American campus there are four standard fixtures:
No. 1- ivy; No. 2 - a statue of the founder; No. 3 - Philip Morris
Cigarettes; No. 4- The Operator.
The ivy is to prevent strangers from mistaking the college for
a warehouse. The statue of the founder provides shade for necking
when the weather is fine. The Philip Morris Cigarettes are an aid
to concentration when you are studious, an aid to sociability when
you are sportive, and a source of smoke rings to impress new girls
.. And The Operator is the man you can't do without.
Well do I remember The Operator on my campus. He was a young
man with a ready smile, a quick mind, fifteen complete changes of
wardrobe, a six room apartment, a red convertible, and assorted
stocks, bonds, securities, and second mortgages.
The Operator's origins were a source of lively speculation. Some
said he was left over from the old Capone gang. Some said he was
Judge Crater. Some said he sprang from the brow of Zeus.
But, in fact, he was just an ordinary student -to begin with. In
his first year he studied hard, took copious lecture notes, got good
grades, and made a big reputation as a friend in need. He'd lend
you money; he'd let you copy his lecture notes; he'd write themes
for you; he'd sit up all night to help you cram for an exam. All of
this was done with infinite good nature on his part, and no obligation
on yours ... The first year, that is.
In the second year The Operator started to operate. He'd still let
you copy his lecture notes - but it cost you a quarter. Sitting up to
help you cram cost 50 cents an hour till midnight, 75 cents an hour
afterwards. His prices for writing themes were based on a sliding
scale - a dollar for a "C", two for a "B", three for an "A". A "D"
cost you nothing, and if you flunked, you got a dollar credit on the
next theme he wrote for you. ,,
His services expanded steadily. He added a line of cribs for
examinations. He booked bets on football games. He did a bit of
bootlegging. He ran a date bureau. He rented cars, tuxedos, non-wilt-
ing boutonnieres.
But all of these were really sidelines. His main line was lending
money. At any hour of the day or night, for any amount from a dollar
to a hundred, The Operator was always ready with a sympathetic
ear and cash on the barrelhead. And he rarely charged more than
150 percent interest.
Usury and sharp trading are practices not calculated to win
affection. Nobody loved The Operator. But nobody did anything
about it either... Becauseundergraduates live in a perpetual state
of need -need of money, need of lecture notes, need of romance,
need of beer, need of something-and The Operator was the goose
that laid the golden eggs and, therefore, safe.
Nor did The Operator seek affection. He just went his well-
heeled way, serene and carefree . . . No, not quite carefree. One
thing troubled him: a fear that some day he might graduate. Gradu-
ation, leaving school, would mean the end of his empire. You can't
run a business like that from the outside; you must be right in the
midst of things, spotting opportunities, anticipating needs, keeping
your finger on the public pulse.
So he took great pains to stay in school, but never to graduate.
This he accomplished by constantly shifting majors. He would come
within a semester of getting a B.A. in sociology and then transfer
to law. When he had nearly enough law credits, he'd switch to
business administration. Then from business administration to
psychology, from psychology to French, from French to history,
and so on, meanwhile getting cultured as all get-out, rich as Croesus,
and never accumulating quite enough credits for a degree.
Finally, of course, it caught up with him. There came a semester
when no matter what he took, he had to wind up with some kind of
a degree. He looked frantically through the class schedule trying to
find some major he hadn't tried yet. And he found one - physical
education. So, sleek and pudgy though he was from high living, The
Operator entered the department of physical ed.
It was a mistake. Among the people he had to wrestle and box
with were some great hulking fellows who, like everybody else on
campus, owed him money.
Their tiny foreheads creased with glee as they regarded The
Operator's trembling little body; their massive biceps swelled joy-
ously; their flexors rippled with delight. Rumbling happily, they
fell upon him and covered him with lumps, the smallest of which
would have taken first prize in any lump contest you might name.
Confused and sick at heart, The Operator dragged his battered
members home. He knew he had to get out of physical ed; his life
was forfeit if he did not. So, unhappily, he transferred to some other
course, and the following June, a beaten man in his cap and gown,.
received with lifeless hands a diploma and a bachelor of arts degree
and shambled out into the great world.
