'.J By Henry Smith Stories axe rapidly finding their way from Traverse City to our campus about a certain Ralph Witherspoon and Norvall Bovee. It seems that the aforementioned gentlemen spent last Friday in the northern city shopping. Now, one may ask, what could they want to buy? In case you haven't heard, Mr. Witherspoon IS a father and Mr. Bovee WILL BE a father. Naturally with babies, per- peram-^ perambul-, baby buggies, are essential. So-q-o-q, the two gentlemen spent the day searching for important infant articles. Could it be that Mr. Bovee took helpful hints and suggestions from Father Witherspoon and could it be that Father-to-be Bovee is expecting a girl? Rumors have it that the Union director bought some 56 yards of pink ribbon. Must have been expecting twins—or more! Information was furnished by Woody Smith, who it is rumored, bought and suggested articles for the Father and Father-to-be. His purchase included a bassinette. He now owns one half of the 56 yards of pink ribbon because luck was I against him in tossing coins. Speaking; of rumors would it not be wise for Central Michigan students to start a campaign to stop prospective rumors? Latest rumor finds that men enlisted in the various service branches will not be required to take final examinations. Another rumor is that all men will be given final orders at the end of the semester. If you hear a rumor, try to stop it immediately. Bun Dennison has hepped up Central's cheering sections at basketball games as never before. At the game last Saturday night with Kalamazoo College, Bun's group led new cheers, one of which went like this: A, B, C, D, E'll send them back to Kalamazoo. And oddly enough Kalamazoo returned to that city after absorbing its second defeat in two nights. Odds and ends ...

All seniors and men who expect to be in the armed services before the end of the school year are requested to have their pictures taken. Pictures will be taken of all other students and faculty who pledge to buy a book; otherwise these persons will not be photographed. Such a program is necessary because of the shortage of film. Two people will • report to the photographer every 15 minutes during the days he is on the campus. A schedule will be placed on the bulletin board across from the General Office the latter part Qf this week, where stu4ents and faculty who desire to have a Chippewa pic-? ture taken may sign their names to be photographed. Time chosen must be during a free hour (no one will be excused from classes to be photographed) , and appointments must be kept exactly on time. Organizations will be taken during the late afternoon and evening and will be scheduled on the same sheet as are individuals. Please observe the time carefully. Pledge cards will be distributed among students and faculty this week. War-time conditions make it necessary to limit pictures only to those who pledge to buy books. Pledges should be in before pictures are taken or at the time they are taken. Chippewas will be mailed to anyone not returning next semester, whether he is going into the armed service or otherwise, if he will pledge and pay for the book before he leaves campus and keeps the editor informed of any change of address.

Moore will speak to the students in an assembly at 10 o'clock Friday morning. In connection with the talk Dr. Moore said, "Much of our incorrect evaluations, faulty inferences and very bad guesses are a result of the misunderstanding and misuse of language. An understanding of the body mechanics involved when we think and speak will help to avoid many of $fa® mmts to evaluations and thinking." Bulletin! "College students Ira the Enlisted Reserve Corps will be called to active duty at the end of the first semester, term or quarter terminating after December 31, 1942, except as follows: all medical and premedic&l students including dental and veterinary; approved engineering course students who are classified as sophomores, juniors or seniors; advanced course ROTC senior unit students; all sophomores in essentially military colleges classified as MC colleges by the War Department; students in th© electronic training group; ttyftft aviation cadets." &&h mm ARE UEGEJp* TO wmtm* wm ' twb' skcond Student Governing Organization Also to Select Future Assembly Programs Student Council Will Conduct Spring Election to Determine Four Outstanding Seniors for Chippewa Awards. Ce»ty#l Michigan College's g&u4ent Council announced Monday night following a two hour sesionthat the Chippewa Awards will be presented this year by the Council and that the general election for the selection of the four outstanding seniors will be conducted the first Tuesday in April. At the same meeting the Council adopted a, special plan which will bring about a change in the coming assemblies. Previously the Chippewa-Awards were presented to the four outstanding seniors by the yearbook, Chippewa. Due to a budget problem the yearbook staff decided to drop the Awards. However, the Council volunteered at this point to make the presentations to the four outstanding seniors. The entire student body, will vote for their choices at a general student election on the April date. Faculty will be permitted to vote also. All seniors are eligible for the awards provided they enrolled as seniors in September, 1942, or in,, February, 1943. This rule includes mm who will or have entered the armed services during their senior year. Each Central student and faculty member will cast one vote for his or her choice. The winners will be decided by the four persons having the greatest number of votes. Previously the Awards were known as the Chippewa Awards. This name will continue to identify the Awards. However, the Student Council will be the sponsor, not the yearbook. The Council will present the four winners with small keys for the man or men, and neck chains for the girl or girls. Presentations will be made at the general awards assembly late in May or early in June. Two full pages will be devoted to the Award winners in the Chippewa yearbook. With their eye on better assemblies, Council members announced" that the Council had been officially approved as the final governing body in assembly programs. In the past semester only three required assemblies have been presented. These were called by President Charles L. Anspach. IJow- ever, non-compulsory assemblies have caused students and faculty many a headache, was the opinion of the Council* Therefore, under the new plan as adopted by the Gouncil and awaiting only the President's final approval, the Student Council, serving as the student governing body, will decide whether future assemblies are worthwhile. If a student organization of any sort wishes to present an assembly or conduct a meeting during the assembly hour on Friday, the person or persons in charge of that program must file notice and brief sketch of the assembly to the Student Council, This may be done through any Council members or advisers of the group. The application should be filed at least two weeks in advance! This will give the Council time to me.et ana4 act upon the proposed plan. Final action on all such sponsored assemblies will require a quorum of the Council and their action will be final. In case of emergencies an emergency committee has been set up. The Committee is composed of two Student Council members and a faculty adviser. This emergency committee will give final decision when it is inconvenient for the Council to meet. The committee has as Its chairman Bertha Croftchik assisted by Richard iGephart and Dr. D. Louise ShafPs, dean of women.
