(Because I must' study for finals,
today's column is written by Tom
Thumb, who is the Daily's regular
columnist for 1941-1942, and whose
real name we cannot divulge for
scholastic reasons.-APB)

Dear Ma,
Sorry I didn't write to you before
this, but I've been studying hard, and
working on my job (which is taking
care of one of the profs' daughters.
She is 19.) I lost the job last night.
I got into Ann Arbor last Monday
morning just in time to register. I
know you'll be happy when I tell you
how I arranged my courses. I'm tak-
ing four hours-that's quite a load,
but I think I can manage it. That
means four hours of class a day and
that's plenty' tough. I've got my
courses fixed so that I don't have
any classes on Saturdays or Mondays,
which gives me plenty of time for
studying, of which I have to do plenty.
In case I mention Loch Alpine or
the Arboretum in my future letters,
don't wonder about them as they
are places where people study out
here-they're good because you can
concentrate there without anybody
bothering you.
I haven't found a job yet, but I'm
looking hard. I drive to Detroit every
night to look for one. Oh, I forgot
to tell you-I had to buy a car to
drive in and out of Detroit looking
for jobs. I got it with that money you
had hidden in Grandma's sewing bas-
ket to pay last month's rent-but
don't get mad-I only need the car
to look for a job so I can help you
pay more rent. It's a swell car-or
it was a swell car. I forgot to tell
you-I was driving home from Buf-
falo and in the middle of Canada the
brakes didn't hold so good and I hit
a telegraph pole. The car wasn't
hurt very badly and if you can send
me $200, I think it can be repaired.

Also I need some money for living
Ann Arbor sure is peachy in the
summer. The average age of the
coeds is 40, and most of them teach'
school, so they're very useful to have
around. For instance, they can tell
you the difference between an adjec-
tive and a verb at the drop of a split
infinitive. And they all know that
the Grand Canyon is the series of
Proterozoic rocks in Colorado. (This
includes, of course, the Unkar and
Chuar groups).
It's getting pretty awful around
here. When you go to the library to
study, you have to study. With a
little white-haired lady on my right
and a 300-pound school-marm on my
left (they bothlike to be called coeds),
what could I look at but my book?
Once I coughed by mistake and five
middle-aged ladies looked around and
exclaimed, "Oh, I'd love to!"
Yup, they let their hair down here
all right. The shoe stores have been
selling women's saddle shoes all the
way up to 112 here. "I believe I'll
be wicked," they say slyly, "and have
a double lime coke."
It's a lot of fun to watch them take
notes in clags. They write down
everything, from the instructor's
"Good Morning" to his "I'm sorry I
kept you so long overtime," including
any of his digestive processes which
may have been audible during the
hour. But you ain't seen nothing yet
till you've been to one of the summer
school dances! Wait till you see Miss
Sophie Froitzboinder, who teaches 6A,
do the conga! It ought to be reported
to the Superintendent of Schools.
Only one thing the male student
has to be cautious about. When these,
coeds ask you for a date, you have to
be sure they're married already.
But, all in all, summer school's
better than being in a draft camp.

W. have a lot of fun studying our
geography and hygiene hard---and
most of the football team's taking
courses here to keep us company.
They just can't seem to get enough
I've been reading in the papers
quite a bit about this gasoline-saving
they're talking about back home. I
think it's a swell idea, and I've got
some more ideas about how it can be
done around this University:
1. Fire all the campus cops.
2. Allow mixed company in student
automobiles at night. Then the fel-
lows and girls could save gas by all
going night-swimming in the same
automobiles, instead of meeting at
the lake.
3. Refuse to admit students who
weigh more than 250 pounds to the
University. Then automobiles would
save gas by not having to drive around
them when they're crossing the street.
4. Don't let any deans or Universi-
ty officials drive cars, except for re-
creational use. There's no, reason why
they can't walk to work like the rest
of us.
Remember, Ma, it's all for the com-
mon defense.
I never got that money order for
$50 that you sent me for tuition.
Please send me another.
You never told me whether they
got that billiard ball out of Ajax's
Love to all.
P.S. Have you tried letting Dad
use a cue on him?

Walter Biye (left) of Fort Defiance, Ariz., a commercial
student at Haskell Institute, Lawrence, Kan., and Chester
Yellow Hair (whose hair is raven black!), silversmith from
Crown Point, New Mexico, are two of the nine full-blooded
Indians in Ann Arbor for the eighth international conference
of the New Education Fellowship. They are shown here seated
on a native-woven Indian rug in the large house in which the
Indian Arts and Crafts Exhibit is housed. The exhibit traces
the development of education among the Navajo Indians.

Indian feathers and buckskins are stranger to these six full-blooded Indians than white men's clothes. The Indians, shown
here smoking the pipe of peace, are in Ann Arbor with the Indian Arts and Crafts Exhibit, housed in Ann Arbor High School
Gymnasium. The exhibit, part of the New Education Fellowship conference, is designated to acquaint foreign visitors with the
culture of the first Americans, and to demonstrate the necessity of fitting education among the Indians to needs on the reserva-
tions, one of which in the Southwest is four times as large as the state of Massachusetts. The braves in the picture are, standing
(left to right), Jack King, Creek Tribe, Okmulgee, Okla., and William Brown, Pawnee Tribe, Pawnee, Okla. Seated (left to right)
are Kenneth Springer, Omaha Tribe, Macy, Neb. Van Doolet, Sioux Tribe, Minocqua, Wis., Clifford Cuellar, Shawnee Tribe,
Shawnee, Okla., and Raymond Walker, Omaha Tribe, Macy, Neb. All were sent here from the Haskell Institute, Lawrence, Kan.,
by the department of the interior. The exhibit closes at 12 noon today.

Not for sale is this many-hued rug on which Mrs. Kather-
ine Bia, instructor in rug weaving at Fort Wingate, N. M.,
is working. It takes from three to five weeks to conplete such
a rug, which is all wool, and made with Indian dyes. Chester
Yellow Hair is watching the process. Visitors at the Indian
exhibit may purchase rugs and other Indian goods and trink-
ets at the Mexican market, which is a part of the exhibit
housed in Ann Arbor High School.
