New Petition
For Attention /
Girls Claim They Have A Right
To Get Into Place Officially; a
Refuse To Be Stuffed Away

ANN ARBOR, Feb. 11, 1890-Forti-
fied by the walk-out of their prohibi-
tionist wing and the erection of a YWCA
on Williams Street, "Women of Wash-
tenaw" yesterday re-newed their de-
mands the J-Hop be made co-education-
al and dispatched a petition contain-
ing more than 700 names telling the
Regents that they refuse to be stuffed
in some corner for the next ten years
along with the Thanksgiving vacation
While the petition itself was the big-
gest thing ever to come out of a suf-
fragettes' meeting in Washtenaw's his-
tory, next in interest was the walk-out
of the prohibitionist wing under the
direction of Mrs. Sadie Kronkeit, who
said, in part:
"University authorities claim they
will not countenance mixed drinking at
this year's J-Hop and yet they have
the effrontery to advertise that they
will furnish ginger ale free. I think it's
suggestive, I mean, really I do."
The J-Hop, a dance which is staged
once each year by the Junior class, ha
been closed to women since its incep-
tion some years ago. Up until the J-Hop
began, women were satisfied merely to
clamor for admittance to higher educa-
tion in the University. Now they have
subsided on that front and are claiming
that they should be admitted to the J-
flop-that the ballroom is a women's
University officials claim they have
nothing to say. However, they did admit
the Board in Control of Athletics' An-
If You Missed
Last J-Hop,
Here Is Why
If you are going to the J-Hop you
will probably want to know how to get
there. Last year, 78 people missed the
Hop because they were unable to find
the place, despite high spirits. Seven
thousand other people missed the Hop
because they did not have tickets. So
maybe we had better tell you how to get
tickets, first.
However, our ticket office tells us
there are no more tickets available-
tho there are three scalpers in a walk-
up above the fire-station who wish they
had sold their tickets before the J-Hop
took place.
As to the location of the J-Hop. It is
in 4nn Arbor. Specifically, it is in the
Intramural Building. That's where you
are now if you are there. If you aren't
you had better read this. If you can't
read, it probably won't make any dif-
ference where you are-as long as you
aren't already waiting for your first
eight o'clock.
Don't take a train, for no trains go
by the Intramural. Don't wait for a
street car, for those tracks are just to
fool the hoboes. Don't hire a boat, for
this is still too early in the spring. Air-
planes are too dangerous. And the
Regents won't allow cars.
What does that leave-any taxi driv-

nual Statement will be out next week.
Chief among the arguments presented
in the petition, the introduction of
which is too long for reproduction here,
was the contention that women like
to dance, too. They cited the establish-
ment of a "Dime and Danc" establish-
ment above a certain grocery store
downtown and pointed out pointedly
they they saw seven of the nine Regents
cavorting thereabouts on the night of
Jan. 16. However, six Regents claim
they will have alibis.
Also, the women stated that any evils
accruing from the admittance of women
to the J-Hop, and they admit there
may be a few evils, could be nullified
by the presence of a chaperone, a 9 p.m.
curfew and the provision of a larger
women's lounge.
"Women have not always been refused
admittance to the 0-Hop,".the petition
sensationally states. "In 1872, it is
authoritatively reported a woman's
voice was heard to tinkle forth delight-
fully from the dark environs. The boys,
claimed it was a phonograph, but the
Women of Washtenaw have their
doubts. They feel if a woman was not
present, she should have been there."
Some 700 names were inscribed below
the above petition. Look at them close-
ly. You may find your sweetheart's
there, to say nothing of your wife's.
The names follow-sorry we could not
get their phone numbers.

Flash: University
Buys Pickles-
From sources too personal to mention
here, the Daily has uncovered the
astonishing fact that the University of
Michigan has become the proud possess-
or of three barrels of pickles from one
of the large pickle dispensers of north-
ern Michigan..These three barrels con-
tain some 29,000 gherkins (sliced) and
some 12,000 mustards (not sliced). It
has been estimated by well-known pickle
authorities that this is enough for 27
years of Ruthven teas, if one out of
every two tea-goers eats pickles. This,
of course, discounts the fact that Presi-
dent Ruthven and Bud may sneak down
in the basement and take a few-on the
This immense amount of pickles is
enhanced by the fact that the Univers-
ity may already have vast stores of
pickles under one of their buildings.

J-Hop Blues
The J-Hop is a lovely thing,
At least,s we'vebeen told.
Its praises: all the ca-eds sing,
Its wonders are : untold.
And how those girls rave on and on
About bands and songs and such.
But the reason that we've never gone
