MASS

MEETING SCHEDULED:

Union, WAA Plan Spring Weekend

Plans for a gala Spring Weekend
sponsored by the Women's Athletic
Association and the Union are well
under way.
Barbara Burstein and Stan Lei-
ken, co-chairmen of the weekend,
have announced a mass meeting
for all those interested in working
on the various committees. The
meeting will be held at 7:15 p.m.
Tuesday in the League Ballroom.
At this meeting chairmen of the
committees will explain the type
of work for which each committee
is responsible. Those attending will
have a chance to sign up for the
committee oftheir choice.
March 28, 1953 was the date of
the last Spring Weekend which is
held in the off-years of Michigras.
Over 700 enthusiasts turned out
to watch the second Wolverun Der-
by, a soapbox race in which racers
from 25 different organizations and
housing units were entered.
Before the race the weekend was
officially opened by a procession
led by the Phi Gamma Delta
marching band from the Union to
the "race track" on E. Washington
St. behind Health Service.
Climaxing the weekend was Skit
Night. Participating houses submit-
ted scenarios to the central com-
mittee early in the winter and
from these six were chosen to pre-
sent their show in Hill Auditorium.
With proceeds from the weekend
going to charity, this year'scen-
tral committee hopes to duplicate

the success of Spring Weekend,
1953 and make that of 1955 the best
yet. Plans for the Wolverun Derby,
Skit Night, open houses, and other
special events are well under way.

By ELAINE EDMONDS
Because of the negligence of a
hunter, the University Museum of
Zoology has become the possessor
of a golden eagle.,
The bird was shot on Sugar Is-
land in the Detroit River recently
by a duck hunter. The body of the
bird, which is protected by law in
Michigan; was confiscated by the
Conservation Service and sent to
the University Museum.
Most commonly found in the
mountains of the west, the golden
eagle is rarely seen in Michigan.
Records show that the bird has
been observed in this state only a
few times.
The length of the bird is about
three feet and the wing spread ap-
proximately six feet.
One of the largest and most mag-
nificent of the eagle species, the
golden eagle is characterized by a
dark brown body and a head and
neck of golden brown. The bird has
a rounded dark brown tail ending
in dark and light tones.

In order to preserve the bird it
has been stuffed with cotton, ex-
celsior and borax. A wooden stick
is inserted in the neck of the bird.
According to Robert W. Storer,
assistant curator of birds at the
museum, the golden eagle will last
at least 100 years after being pre-
pared in this way.
