Ball Goers ToI
Go Pick Beets
Dark, Simon Legree Marv Bor-
man, campus manpower boss,
pleaded today with student Vic-
tory Ball goers to leave the dance
at midnight',tonight in order to
catch special trucks bound for the
beet fields of the Thumb district.
This call for workers in the beet
fields is especially urgent at this
time, since the real reason for the
new harvest is not so much' to
gather beets as it is to conduct
an organized search for several
students who were lost in last No-
vember's trek to the north.
Wages will be unusually high
this time, Borman said, since
workers will be paid in pounds of
sugar beets.
"Bring your date along too," he
urged. "She'll enjoy a week-end or
two in the country. Besides, that
town of Sandusky is.a hot town on
Saturday night-good cuisine and
a swell place to take a date."
: As a special concession to the
volunteers, Manpower officials
promised that this year they would
be excused from the second night
of the combined J-Hop and Senior
Ball. This will save a lot of tired
feet and weary pocket-books, they
The trip will take little more
than four, weeks. Classes will
be conducted .by correspondence
