Christmas Just Another Day for Cops
BOOKS TO BULLETS:
'U' Students Request Fantastic Presents
It's just another working day for
the members of Ann Arbor's po-
While businessmen are having
office parties, workers having fac-
tory parties and students just hav-
ing parties, the ever-vigilant police
are pounding their beats and an-
swering complaints, just as they've
been doing the other 364 days of
have one customary observance of
yuletide, the annual coffee and
cake hour sponsored by the com-
mand officers every Christmas eve.
A few lucky officers have one of
their one-and-a-half days off a week
fall on Christmas and New Year's.
Some others are able to use their
backlog time-hours spent on days
off appearing in court and doing
other special work-toward the hol-
iday season. But to the averr ge
cop on the beat, Christmas time
has little extraordinary to recom-
There is always some seasonal
excitement for the police. Already
this year there has been a com-
plaint that two 17-year-old ever-
green trees in an Ann Arbor resi-
dent's front yard were cut down
and are now decorating someone's
living room. The department is
working on the case, but hopes are
not high for the apprehension of
the local lumberjacks.
Main St. stores are overcrowded
with holiday shoppers, and precau-
tions are taken against the annual
increase in shoplifting. For several
weeks before the big day, a police
sergeant parades the street as a
warning to would-be-thieves. The
presence of the law is always felt.
So passes Christmas. Do the po-
licemen object? As one 20 year
member of the force cheerfully
said: "We're getting used to it."

While many University students,
reared in the tradition of the
'white Christmas', travel south for
the holidays, others who are used
to more temperate Yuletide climes
will remain in chilly Michigan
during the vacation.
Students from the Hawaiian Is-
lands and other tropical and semi-
tropical areas who remain in Ann
Arbor will miss the Christmas
feeling just as much as Northern-
ers who travel south. Whether
palm trees or snow signify the
Christmas feeling, the person used
to them misses much when he's
"Sing Ye To The Lord", an a
cappella motet by Johann Sebas-
tian Bach, will be sung with the
Michigan Singers composing the

University Choir members singing

cappella by the Michigan Singers,

Michigan Singers will sing Vaug-
han Williams' "Magnificat".
Other selections on the pro-
gram are "O Magnum Mysterium"
by Vittoria, and a contemporary

students from the Michigan Sing-
ers will sing the first choir part

singing the responsory phrases.
"St. Matthew Passion"
Prof. Klein will direct the Uni-
versity Choir for their spring con-
cert March 25, when they will

concert tour with a performance
in Carnegie Hall, New York City.
The Singers have performed two
Christmas concerts during the last
week in Eaton Rapids and Wayne,
Mich. They also participated in
the annual Ann Arbor Christmas
Community Sing and Pageant.

and BOB JONES
Encouraged perhaps by the New
York Sun report ('Yes, Virginia,
there is a Santa Claus"), Univer-
sity students are requesting Christ-
mas presents which could be sup-
plied by no one but St. Nick him-
Seeming to believe in the super-
natural powers of the bearded one,
one harried freshman paused in
his ten minute break between
classes to say breathlessly, "I
want a longer vacation. Say about
eight months longer."
Pausing first to observe the won-
ders of the earth-sky, trees, and
sun-Don Chisholm, '55, finally
said, "Give me money! More mon-
The influence of science has left
its mark on the heart of Jim Mc-
Donald, '56. He wants only "an
electrocephalograph. This would
enable me to penetrate the laby-
rinths of my roommate's mind."
Some students kept their requests
along more conventional lines.
Margie Denawetz, '58, had a strict-
ly practical wish. Returning from
the office of her English teacher,
she looked determined as she said,
"I'm asking for a set of encyclo-
pedias so that I can pass Freshman
This attitude was reiterated by
a worried looking athlete crossing
the diag, who said desperately, "A
couple good marks on tests I've
Bill Johnson, '58, had an unusual
request. "I'd like a doodlyboop, just
Marie Borrbonnais, '57, replied
to the query with a sly smile.
"Nothing you could print in The
Daily," she said.
Interviewed under the Engineer-
At some time in the past the
custom of . decorating doors at
Christmas time was established by
coeds living in the women's dorms.
Since then the designs which ap-
pear as one goes through a hall or
corridor have become more elab-
orate and original. Of course there
are always cheery red bows and
candy canes in evidence, but the
visitor is sure to see some truly
artistic and unique designs as well.
Many of the more talented and
ambitious students have pictures
of the Madonna and her Child in
their windows, with lights arranged
so that a halo effect is created.
Another appropriate design is of
an angel praying. The sign over
the figure reads, "Pray for me, I
have two bluebooks this week."
On one door old St. Nick is pulling
a transcript out of his bags. The
grades on the list are all A's.
COED COGITATES-Poring over a set of borrowed encyclopediae,
Margie Denawetz, '58, harbors hope that a benificent St. Nick
will answer her wish for a set of 'brainery' all her own. She and
many other Michigan students include practical gifts along these
lines on their Christmas lists in hopes of improving pre-holiday
grades after vacation is over.
ing Arch a few seconds before mid-
night, Cookie Schwartz, '58, was
restless. "All I want's my mistle-
toe," she chirped.
A note of despair pervaded the
words of Eugene Kreuzberger, '56.
"Well," he said. "I already have a
revolver. One bullet umuld suf-
Bernie Tolpin, '56, had only one
small request for Christmas. "Let
it be a 2S deferment," he said.
"Just a couple meaningless little
squiggles of ink."
Yule Shoppers Step Up Buying
NEW YORK, (R)-Christmas shop-
pers stepped up their buying thisj
week, according to Dun & Brad-
Total retail sales throughout the
nation matched the high level of a'
year ago. Night openings helped.
So did extensive promotions which
lured holiday shoppers away from3
suburban stores into downtown.
Holiday dresses, furs, accessor-;
ies and coats sold well; demand
for children's wear approached a,
seasonal high. Men's wear sales
were down slightly from the pre-
vious week, but buying of gifts,
sports equipment and furniture
was at a higher level.
Food stores showed substantial
gains over last year. Small appli-
ances sold well and television sales
continued to soar. Demand for ma-
jor appliances lagged. NeW automo-
biles sold briskly.
