Merchants Say
Little Missives
Might Work
Local State Street merchants were
today alternately rubbing their hands
in anticipation of a huge buying
spree on the part of the public for
snappy valentines between now and
Feb. 14, and then the poor store-
keepers were literally taking down
their hair (whatever hair the Ann
Arbor water had left them) as they
had their little cries and bemoaned
the fact that the present recession
would undoubtedly take away what-
ever income they had left from the
county relief roll.
As one sobbing spokesman said, the
proprietors had been pinning their
hopes on the J-Hop to bring back
prosperity, only to have the tempor-
ary boom dissolve into thin air, lit-
erally and figuratively. There was
hardly any scalping on J-Hop ducats,
the lacrminonious one reported, and
when you don't have any J-Hop ticket
scalping, then things must be pretty
But torbeat the recession whatever
and wherever it will, the merchants
are now going to battle it with tooth
and nail-and valentines. Truckloads
of the lacy missives could be seen
- pulling into Ann Arbor even in the
darkness of last night. While most o
the transporting was done in good
faith, it was reliably reported that
one load of valentines had been hi-
jacked on its way to this metropolis
somewhere in the eerie environs of
O Dexter.
Ann Arbor, always a city of the
unusual and the unexpected, plans to
offer its buyers an almost unpre-
cedented supply of the significant red
cards starting today.
There will be several for those
people you like and many more to
send to those people you don't like.
Even Western Union and Postal Tele-
graph claim that they will be able
to suit your every mood with a suit-
able epistle to your loved, hated or
indifferent one.
Each company is offering a variety
of 16 this year, though it is claimed
that three cannot be counted as they
are simply a kiss on the brow for
Mother. Out of the 29 others, how-
ever, the W.U. and P. T. claim there
is a wide choice of sentiment, grad-
ing from a coo to a sizzle, and, as per
usual, there is no advance in prices
this year.
Anything from:
"The Sweetest Story ever told is
conveyed in this message.
"Just drop me a line and say you'll
be mine.
"It's not the frills and laces that
make a valentine, It's the message of
affection, straight to your heart from
"Though miles apart, we laugh-
our hearts entwined by telegraph.
"Love sends this line, by valentine."
These two-bits' worth of straight
love, moreover, come to your one and
only in a fancy envelope that will
prepare the o.a.o. for what the tele-
graph form and you have to say.
The companies both offer a nice
line, and it would be hard to say
which excels in general trickiness,
but research shows that the W.U. is
prepared to go just a little bit farther
than the P.T. system dares venture.
The most the Postal delivery boys will
do is to ask the girl or boy to be
your valentine. The W.U. will give
them No. 211 or No. 214.
The first one says, "Name the date,
the hour, the spot. No. 214 asks the
valentine to wire back "Yes." You
can assume that this means the sen-
der wants the sendee to tell whether
he or she will go to the show with
she or he, but we think it means

Misses The Hop
(Continued from Page 13)
Johnny Greenbehindtheears did not
get to the J-Hop and we did not write
about the J-Hop.
But it takes a clever person to write
about the J-Hop.
We are not a clever person.
We went to the J-Hop.
