Men's Residene Halls
Among Best in Country



Men living in University Resi-
dence Halls really do not have it
as bad as they sometimes think -
at least when compared with oth-
er schools.
Men's dormitories at the Uni-
versity are among the finest, ac-
cording to a women who has been
with the system since it opened in
She is Mrs. Virginia M. Harry-
man, associate adviser of Taylor
House in South Quadrangle and
coordinator for the other asso-
ciate advisers in that dormitory.
"No system I've visited," she
said, "compares to the one at
Michigan. The educational staff
is nill, physical accomodations
are poorer and services fewer at
\ other .schools."
Mrs. Harryman began her work
with the Residence Halls in Allen-
Rumsey House in West Quad-
rangle, the first part of the system.
With the exception of one year
during the war which she spent
in Mexico, she has been an asso-
ciate adviser ever since.
Sees Changes
In this time she has witnessed
great changes in the Residence
Hall system but will soon see one
of the biggest - the development
of coeducational living.
"This prospect of coed living
has my wholehearted approval,"
she said. "It definitely is a step
forward. I feel it probably got its
start with the conversion of
Houses in East and West Quad-
rangles for women during the
housing crisis."
Housing crises have led to in-
creasing the size of Houses in the
men's system to slightly over what
Mrs. Harryman considers the
"I feel," she commented, "that
the ideal size of a House is 125.
This is large enough for sports
and social programs and yet small
enough for integration."
Commends Dorm Living
But even so, the value of the
dormitory in group living, in
meeting varied ideas, in socializ-
ing with people is not lost in the
Houses today, she pointed out.
One thing that does bother her.
may be a result of the size of
Houses. "I feel it's a shame to
think that a party or an event
in general is a failure just be-
cause there are not too many
people present. The important
thing is what the event has pro-
vided for those who are present.
A key to success of the House
is diversification according to this
associate adviser, who lives in a
House of 210 men, about 25 more
than the average. She believes the
ideal is some program that touches
everybody in some way.
Mrs. Harryman came to Taylor
House when South Quadrangle
opened in 1951. And with her came
a small core of men to get the
House started.
Many Left
Most of them are gone now but
one of the things she enjoys most
is having them, and other men
who have lived in her House, come
back after graduation.
She recalls one time when a stu-
dent returned for a visit after
four years. "He said he hoped to

... Veteran house mother
find me just as I was when he
was in school. Well, I guess I
pleased. He said, 'You haven't
changed a bit; in fact, you even
have the same dress."
She describes her job as co-
ordinating associate adviser of
the Quadrangle as one of a liasion
officer between the Office of the
Dean of Students, of handling the
directives of the Resident Direc-
tor of the Quadrangle and of
working with the overall social
One of the biggest differences
she notices in South Quadrangle
is the fewer number of women
visitors in the men's lounges. "In
West Quadrangle there was fre-
quently to be found several wo-
men visiting in the lounge. In
South this is hardly ever found."
She attributed this possibly to the
structure of the building.
The shopper of 1980 will no
longer be able to frequent the lo-
cal corner durg store as a social
center for it is about to undergo
a major revolution.
Upon'entering the drugstore he
will be carried by a moving con-
veyor floor; he will be watched
by a closed television circuit and
he will be able to patronize such
special departments as geriatrics.
These prophecies were made by
Dan Rennick, editor of the Am-
erican Druggist, at the University
of Michigan College of Pharma-
cy's Annual Lecture on October
Prescription departments will
be emphasized, and the drug sec-
tion will be run on a self-service
basis. Customers will be surveyed
by the television and a floor-
walker. ,
Moving floors will then trans-
port the customer to the rear
where he will be able to buy such
articles as cosmetics and maga-
zines as well as wheelchairs and
other geriatric articles.

G&S offer
Though Gilbert and Sullivan's
operettas were written for the
mere enjoyment of the people, they
always seemed to create some sort
of national or international inci-
dent in England.
Such was the case with their
comic operetta, "Ruddigore" which
the G & S Society is presenting
Nov. 8, 9 and 10 in the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre.
Since the original name for the
operetta had been "Ruddygore,"
some deep thinking Britisher sub-
stituted the world "bloody," which
in the British form of English is
not at all nice.
After the austere British press
finished commenting upon the
"nasty" name, many "nice" people
refused to attend the perform-
ances. Thus, the operetta's title
was changed to the less offending,
Causes Furor
Then, in the realm of interna-
tional disputes, a ballad in the
operetta referred to the French
sailor as a "darned Mounseer" and
a "Parley-voo." A French news-
paperman didn't take too kindly
toward these appelations, labeling
them insults to the French Navy-
and said so via newsprint.
It was only after Gilbert and
Sullivan again collaborated in
writing a letter designed to subdue
and pacify the newspaperman and
his reading public, was the threat
of war between the two countries
entirely obliviated . . . for the
time being, that is.
Slow Start
Because of, or even in spite of
all of these trials and tribulations,
"Ruddigore" was not an entire
success at first. It wasn't until
company in New York revived the
1920, when an American opera
company in New York revived the
operetta, that the production fin-
ally got the popular attention it
has today.
Tickets for "Bloody---," or
rather "Ruddigore" can be pur-
chased in the Administration Bldg.

For MEN Only
4 g ~eodie Wild j.*
The weather man says there is going to be a real chill
in the air Saturday night as you meander over to the
IM building to hear the hot licks of Count Basie. So,
brother, unless you've got an extra heavy toga in the
closet, you'd better check into the matter of a good-
looking, good-feeling topcoat.
First of all, let it be understood that the topcoats at
Wild's are much better looking than any style of toga.
But even more important, they're more comfortable and
more practical than most any topcoat or overcoat you can
find. These coats are a special mid-weight that puts
them in between the old thin topcoat, and the old bulky
overcoat. In other words, they are light and comfortable
enough to wear both in the Fall and Spring, and warm
enough to wear without additional outer clothing through
all but the severest winter weather. (And for those who
are especially subect to pangs of cold, there are perfectly
tailored zip-in wool linings for extra warmth.)
There isn't any doubt that Harris Tweed of top quality
is the real "iron cloth" of topcoats. But even among
Harris Tweeds there are differences in quality. Like
other genuine Scotch products, tweeds are made in small
quantities by individual workers in their own homes.
They are then selected and purchased by clothing manu-
facturers' representatives. The fabric selected by Varsity-
Town is of such superior workmanship, that each bolt is
identified by a certificate bearing the name and address
of the weaver.
The Harris Tweed Topcoat you select at Wild's will
be delivered with a facsimile of this certificate, so you
not only will know that you are wearing top grade tweed,
but if you desire, you can even correspond with the
weaver (and we're told he will answer!) Every other
detail of these coats is also carried out to perfection-
leather buttons, slash pockets, short collar for use with or
without a scarf, raglan sleeves for ease and comfort, nat-
ural water repellency-are all yours for a modest $67.50.
For those who prefer the luxurious feeling of a soft pile
type topcoat, or the always popular camel hair coat,
Wild's also has the answer. The finest pile type coat by
Society Brand is on hand in blue, brown, camel or light
gray for $79.50,
Whether you will be selecting a new topcoat, or wearing
one that is in your closet now, remember the importance
of accessories to give you that polished look. Check the
new Flat Top hats in charcoal brown or charcoal gray-
gloves of every leather and fabric in all colors to blend
with your coat-scarves with authentic Scotch plaids or
in Michigan colors.
Drop into Wild's and then attend the Roman Holiday
looking like the Emperor himself.
