t,i ;. j > WedneAdcuf, By Henry Smith It was only last week in this column that the writer hinted there might be a man shortage on campus due to the Army air corps calling up reserves. However, after visiting Ronan hall and watching activities last Friday night the writer takes it all back. Believe it or not, there was an abundance of men—tall ones, short ones, fat ones, thin ones, and a mixture. Did the girls go out and drag them in by the ear or were the FREE refreshments responsible? Students and faculty who patronize the cafeteria are beginning to wonder how old William Shafer, naval cadet stationed here on the campus, really is. Each day the 20 cadets who gather around the table for meals sing a happy birthday song in honor of Shafer. The question is, "When IS Shafer's birthday?" That's a $64 question. Probably one of the most novel ideas to be presented on the campus since the outbreak of the war at Pearl Harbor is an idea introduced by Lawrence "Doc" Sweeney, instructor in the physical education department. Last fall the department purchased a trampoline A trampoline is a canvas stretched by means of springs and lifted from the floor by means of cast iron legs. It is used to train acrobats in gymnastics work. The canvas is springy and permits many acrobatic stunts. It was "Doc's" idea that a reproduction of Hitler's face should give acrobats something to aim at. Lyle Brown, Olio freshman, was employed to paint a face of Hitler on the canvas. Now, trampoline users give Mr. Hitler a good smash in the face. Registration for ration books kept the college training school busy from Tuesday through Friday of last week. On Tuesday 600 books were issued. . Dr. D. Louise Sharp, dean of women, recently addressed the housemothers and dormitory directors of Michigan State college on General Counciling as Affected by the War."
