Glvatti * B& % '4 t* Mattel By An% Gidilewich After toiling through freshmen initiation, moiling through elections, and using what remaining energy is left for mid-semesters, the day of days is almost here—the day before Christmas vacation. Our roommate with the musical tendencies is realy reverting back to her somewhat incomplete childhood with "No more home work, no more books, no more teachers' dirty looks." " . * * * Now that the election's over, and we're strictly non-partisan anyhow, we can safely compliment the TePee party on its solid • platform, one plank of which was to go. for a doghouse for Sadie. Think what a revolutionary thing that would be. Think what Sadie's doghouse would do for student morale. Sadie's silence would ensue from having a place to sleep. If Sadie sleeps, Sloan ; sleeps. If Sloan sleeps—this can go on and on. Better stop here. * * * It used to be that Sunday afternoon recreation consisted of two alternatives. Either go to the movies or go to the movies. Now since the advent of the Hansen sisters, and a couple of pharmacist's mates, new vistas have been opened,on Sloan's lawns* • All one has to do is don one's slacks, flex one's'big-right toe, and dash over for a snappy game of football. *'**■ The slipperiest case Sloan has seen in years has to do with suspected freshmen, a jar of vasolinie and over a hundred doorknobs. Talk about subtle systems of revenge. We have no facts upon which to base the assumption that the freshmen did it, but we do have a well oiled knob on our door and what upperclassmen would get up at six to do it? • * * * Back to the soil for Dorothy Sharrard and Janet Doyle. Notice the rhyme. If we had ambition we would compose an agricultural ode or something. These two horticulturists spend spare time cultivating and plowing, we presume, .two rare luxuriant speciments of twining ivy. At this point our musical roommate • is intruding,with "Oh, Tell Me Why The 'Ivy Twines." We're going to explain the situation to her with gestures. Pardon us while we step out into the alley. Chippewa Calls for Campus Snaps So ya say ■ ya want a yearbook with lots of pictures? Ya want plenty of action shots' with all kinds of settings and all types of people in all sorts of poses? Well, I'll tell ya what, you're gonna have to do! Scout around the dorms and houses for snapshots of campus scenes and Centralites—'look through your room-mate's albums and investigate between' pages of books for stray six. Gather Up yow choice shots of your friends and donate them to the 1944 Chippewa. Shortage of film makes it compulsory to resort to such tactics if this year's" annual is to be a true reflection of campus life. Your cooperation will make your Chippewa what you expect it to be. AU pictures are to, be submitted to Arlene Hopkins, editor, or to someone in the Student Publications office (W105). No deadline has been set, but contributors are urged to get their pix in before Christmas vacation."

Qffke A. m VOLUME 25 MOUNT PLEASANT, MICHIGAN, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 15, 1943 NUMBER 6 emors Council Approves Lower Standards for Fraternities Men with .90 Average Eligible for Membership by Plan Proposed. . m The proposal to lower the scholastic requirements for fraternity membership passed the two-thirds marker last Monday night when the student council put their ok on the proposition. The proposal, which passed the Inter-fraternity council last Thursday by a 3 to 2 vote, will open fraternity membership to men with an approximate .90 average for over all college work. This: will mean that semester "freshmen with only 15 hours of C work will be eligible fraternity men. The requirements as they now stand call for a 1.0 average for over all college work. Such a plan would stand only for the duration. However, the proposal has yet to go through the student social activities committee where.it may run into considerable opposition from faculty members. If the activities committee passes on the proposed plan it will go into effect immediately according to Dean George Lauer. The activities, committee will act on the plan some time next week. The Winnah! BETTY RUETZ will take office as Student council vice-president this semester and become council president next semester.

Chrysler Officials Consult at Central Chrysler corporate _n representatives, William' D. Merifield and H. M. Barnes,. from .Detroit were on campus last Thursday, December 9, consulting with Central's curriculum committee. Heretofore Chrysler corporation has had a program consisting of actual part-time factory jobs for graduate students majoring in industry, so that after having firsthand experience they would be more able to instruct others. In the meeting last Thursday plans for extending this program to undergraduates was the major discussion. But no definite steps have yet been taken in this .direction. Dr. Richtmeyer, mathematics department head, is the chairman of the curriculum committee which sponsored this meeting. C. M. C. E. Bluejacket Unit Remembers Pearl Harbor Day with $1925 in Bonds Last Tuesday was the second anniversary of Pearl Harbor and Central Michigan's bluejackets remembered the "day of infamy" to the tune of $1925 in War Bonds. Commanding officer of the unit, Lt. M. R. Kelso, commended the V-12's for their bond purchases which are in addition to the allotments they are already making for the same items. Latest figures in the Battalion War Bond drive show that 92.6 percent of the navy students at Central are making monthly purchases of War Bonds. Company five, commanded by Hugh D. Untiedt Jr., Pasadena, Calif, freshman, leads this impressive record with 100 percent participation. Company four, commanded by Merle A. Munroe Jr., Ft. Steila- coom, Wash, freshman, has 96 percent participation (not 100 percent as previously reported.) Company -*m one, commanded by William Dukin, Omoha, Neb. freshman, has 91 percent participation and company three, commanded by L. Fred Bissell, Kalamazoo freshman, shows 90 percent. Company two, John W. Anderson, Minneapolis, freshman commanding, has 85 percent. This gives the entire unit the excellent participation figure of 92.6 percent, only those men who live considerable distances and have high traveling expenses not making the monthly allotment. It is believed that the Central unit will be awarded the commandant's pennant, a recognition originating at the headquarters of this the ninth naval district and which is awarded to those units having 90 percent War Bond pftrticlpa- tion, involving 10 percent of the unit's monthly pay over a two; month period.

Arising from a discussion of campus relations and social life, a committee has been formed to improve relations between the girls and the V-12 and V-5 men on campus.

Pleasant sophomore; Carl Ritter, Kalamazoo freshman; Wayne Ross, Boston sophomore; Jack Oke, Detroit sophomore; Jack Bates, Detroit sophomore; and Don Carter, Spokane, wash, sophomore, chairman. The first meeting of the committee was held at Betty's home a week ago Monday night and plans were made, for a hike to Cathedral woods and den party last Sunday. Twenty boys, lour from each company, and 20 girls, went on the hike. The committee planned a Get- Together week starting the day after Christmas vacation. Send-off for the program will be an assembly on Wednesday, December 29, called "Town Hall Tonight." All students, civilians, V-5, and V-12 men, .are invited. Hugh Unteidt and Ms band will play for the program and John Anderson, Minneapolis, Minn, freshman, will be the master of ceremonies. A New Year's Eve orchestra dance will be sponsored by the group on Friday and the week wfii be climaxed by a pow-wow with a bonfire, school yells and songs on Saturday night. Miss Celia Segerman, assistant professor in the health and physical education department, will give a lalk on USO to the Union. Township Farmer's club Thursday, December 9. Miss Segerman spent the summer in Tfi-mpm, Morida dls-eet ing ft USC Junior Slate . The TePee party seemed the choice of junior voters as all four class offices will be filled with its candidates. Junior returns were Jack Robinson, Montello, Wis., 49, over Louis Haake, Mt. Prospect, HI., 35, for president; Mary Moore, Gladwin, 40, over Bette Baldwin, Tuscola, 32, and Fran Mewmaw, Royal Oak, 13, for vice president; Elna Burke, Midland, 45, over Mary. Jean Coon, Ionia, 34, for the secretary's office; Joyce Sherwood, Kalkaska, 48, over- Gerry Hinricks, 35, for treasurer. Independents, however, rode home with a good share of the glory in, the_ sophomore class elections. Bill Gregory, Escanaba, rolled up 58 votes to triumph over Mary Lerg, Lake City, polling 26, and Jane Bradshaw, Royal Oak, 24. Connie Denison, Marysville, won over Betty Sack, Big Rapids, by a vote of 71 to 37, to cop the vice presidential office. Beverly Preston, Grosse Pointe, tallied 59 to win the secretaryship over Mary Jane Pel- ton, Bentley, who rolled up 46; and Dorothy Sharrard; Peck, carried away the treasurer's berth by a vote of 39 to 38 for Janet Waldron, Bel- ,ding, and 28 for Shirley DeGrasse, Royal Oak. • Split Tickets Characteristic Two hundred and eighty-three frequented the polls between 8 a. m. and 5 p. m. Monday which when compared with elections of previous years appears a bit light. Overlooking the fact that the TePee's7 took all junior class berths, students for the most part voted a split ticket as reported by the student council elections committee. The committee also stated that the light Vote this term was probably due to the lack of interest in the campaign up until the closing hours. The student council will announce in the near future the plans for to* stallation of the new vite president and'class officers* ^ ' & i t. fcy* 7-fy «y, JM 7fl s Vt 11JS ;; M %.
