Woman Teaching Fellow Claims
Unique Position in Zoology Field

Occupying the unique position
of a full time teaching fellow in
comparative anatomy, while only
a junior, is vivacious Margaret
Mackrain.

A zoology honors student, Mar-
garet is presently doing experi-
mental work on the pleasure-
sensory area.
Her eyes alive with interest in
her project, she explained that
she is studying the effects of sex
hormones on white rats.
Explaining her choice of a zo-
ology major, Margaret said, "It
gives the basic foundation so ne-
cessaryhto be able to understand
the process of the way people
function."'
Plans a Medical Career
A pre-med student who antici-I
pates a career in surgery, she re-
marked, "People are my first in-
terest and ny greatest satisfac-
tion is to do things for them. With
the techniques I'm working on I
hope people will be able to lead a
happier life."
And it can never be said that

THE GIFT HORSE
The college life is a busy one, especially at this time
of year. What with going to classes and studying for
exams and pursuing a full social schedule and construct-
ing rope ladders to foil dormitory curfews, the average
undergrad is so pressed for time that he cannot do justice
to his Christmas shopping.
Therefore, to aid you in your Christmas shopping, I
have gone into the market place and selected for you a
list of gifts, notable for their originality.
Perhaps the most original gift of all this year is a
carton of Philip Morris Cigarettes. "Original?" you ex-
claim, your bushy young eyebrows rising. "Why, we
have been giving cartons of Philip Morris for years!"
True, I reply, but each time you give Philip Morris,
it is a new treat, a fresh delight, a pristine pleasure. Each
carton, each pack, each cigarette, each puff, is just as
good as the first one you ever tried.
Another gift destined for certain popularity this
year is a gift certificate from the American Dental As-
sociation. This certificate, good at any dentist's office in
America, is accompaniedby a handsome gift card upon
which is engraved this lovely poem:
Merry Christmas, little pal,
Do you need some root canal?
Prophylaxis? Porcelain caps?
Bridgework to close up them gaps?
Shiny braces that will straighten?
Inlays? Fillings? Upper platen?
Merry Christmas to your teeth,
And the rosy gums beneath.

Gives Prizes
For Poetry
French students competed in a
poetry contest held last Tuesday.
Dec. 11, for honors and prizes.
The various French classes
selected French poems and recited
them in class as a class project.
Each class then chose the person
who gave the best recitation of
the poem.
Then the contestant gave his
interpretation of the poem at the
poetry contest, sponsored by the
French Club.
Participate in Three Groups
There were three categories in-
cluding students from French 1
and 2 who were in the beginning
category. French 31 and 32 candi-
dates made up the intermediate
category and the third category
was composed of the more ad-
vanced classes.
Poems from Rimbaud, Vigny,
Hugo, Valerie, and other French
poets were recited as well as a
selection from "Cyrano de Ber-
gerac" and a clever telephone dia-
logue.
In the first category, Francis
Wilson won the first prize, a
French record. Gwendolyn Fow-
ler, second prize winner, won a
French book. Third prize winner
Burt Kageef was awarded a French
poster.
Were Awarded Prizes
Catherine Dick was the winner
of the first prize in the second
category, and she received a
French record. A French book
was awarded to Phyllis Sophko,
second prize winner. Receiving
honorable mentions were Patricia
Penns and Cecile Russotto.
The last group to perform was
the advanced group in which,
Susan Liber wan an art book forI
the first prize and Roberta Rich-
mond won a record. Kenneth Katrej
and Betty Smith received honor-
able mention for their recitations.

the directors of the honored houses I
and directors and secretaries of
the League.
Presidential teas were first held
more than 20 years ago by Presi-
dent and Mrs. Alexander Ruthven.
Since the enlargement of the
University campus and population,
and likewise the teas, it has been
necessary to transfer the organi-,
zation of the special events to the
League. President and Mrs. Hat-
cher initiated the idea of including
the Union as one of the organizers
of the open houses
Real value in the open houses
comes because the average student
has a chance to meet the Presi-
dent and his family and see the
home, Mrs. Hatcher said.I

As a result of the campus event,
Mrs. Hatcher explained that they
learn to know many students from
their faces if not by their names.
Campus Groups

tet, and the Miscords, a coeds'

logue while Howard Nemerowski

Laughingly she admitted," I
don't miss many dances, and I try
to attend all the football and hock-
ey games. And for fun I sing in
Choral Union."
Enjoys Winter Sports
"I'm getting .anxious to go home
to the Upper Peninsula where
there will be snow so that I can
ski and skate." she added.
The eldest of seven in a farm
family of Finnish descent, Mar-
garet has worked since the age of
12, and completely supported her-
self since the age of 16.

Her mouth crinkling into aj
smile, Margaret told that since the
E third grade she'd wanted to come
to Michigan, and "Since the eighth
grade I've had correspondence
with the University."
Last year Margaret worked un-
der the Atomic Energy Commis-

Daily-Stephanie Roumell

'sion studying tissue responses to
radiation.
"First I worked with rabbits, but
then I started doing blood tests
of 300 Eskimos. And each blood
sample required 80 test tubes. I
didn't even get home for Easter,"
she explained.
sA warm, friendly person, Mar-
garet said, "I've always had to
look for jobs, because I have to go
to medical school to gain my goal.
I've been lucky all my life."

cordings have arrived and are in1
the Social Director's office of the
League. Students may pick them
up this week only.

Another gift that is always welcome is a book, espe-
cially to people who read. This Christmas the selection
of books is particularly attractive. For lovers of an-
thologies, there is William Makepeace Sherpa's A Treas-
ury of the World's Great Treasuries. For those who fancy
inspiring success stories, there is the stirring autobi-
ography of William Makepeace Pemmican entitled Hour
I Got a Forty Pound Monkey Off My Back and Started
the Duluth Zoo. For devotees of skin-diving, there is
I Married a Snorkel by Lydia Makepeace Watershed. For
calorie counters and waistline watchers, there is Harry
Makepeace Wildfoster's Eat and Grow Fat.
My own favorite book this season is a pulse-pounding
historical novel from that famous author of pulse-pound-
ing historical novels, Daphne Makepeace Sigafoos. This
one is called Egad and Zounds, and it tells the poignant
romance of two young lovers, Egad and Zounds, who,
alas, can never be married, for fiery Egad is but a gypsy
lass, while tempestuous Zounds is a Kappa Sigma. They
later become Ludwig of Bavaria.
My final gift suggestion is one that a great many.
people have been fervently wishing for since last year.
Do you remember the introduction last Christmas of
tiny personal portable radios that plugged into your ear?
Well, this year, you will be delighted to know, you can
buy an ingenious pick to get them out.
Max Shulman, 1956
Old Max said it, but it bears repeating: A carton of Philip
Morris, made by the sponsors of this column, is a Christmas
giftthat's bound to please everyone
