4 ♦ :1 /Mattel By Ann GidUewich Besides a musical roommate and a sleep-walking roommate we now have a fifth party in our little corner of Sloan. It's an exclusive little cold virus that makes the rounds in 220 as regularly as clockwork. It was our turn last week and we're ready to oust the little microbe, but it hangs around like a poor relation. * * * After stumbling around in a bleary-eyed coma for a few days, we came out from behind a kleenex and found snow, ice and other signs of cold weather. Mt. Pleasant, the land of the weird winters. Some of the skiing in back of Sloan was pretty weird, too. * * * This is the story of cake. A cake was left for Ruth Horn on her birthday. It was a beautiful cake • witn frosting and stuff. There was no note attached nor any sign of the kind soul who sent it. So naturally she and her roommates got around to eating it in short time. After several luscious mouthfuls someone noticed a legend written in frosting around the edges—"To Ruth from—" and that blank is what they ate. * * * Whoever said that civilization made the life of man too complicated must have had the Central student in mind. Even eating has become surrounded with obstacles like forks, and spoons. We now not only have to worry about how and what we're going to eat, but also the transportation system. Our lazy roommate has even offered to dig out thirty-five cents for a cab to Newton's. This tacking across country to avoid the wires doesn't agree with her. * * * Ten minutes to go and we can't think of another item. There was someone who wanted his name in the paper and whose name eludes us at the moment. Please note: those who wanted to see their names in print last week consider themselves indirectly appeased. Centralites Donate to Plasma Bank Approximately one third of Central's V-12 unit contributed to the local Red Cross Blood bank ^orive last week. Many faculty members also donated blood; but because most -women students had to write home for permission, many were disappointed to find that their applications did not get in in time to make appointments. Since only sixty donors could be taken care of in one day because of limited facilities at Lansing laboratories many who had appointments ihad to be turned away. Verne Stockman, assistant pro- fesor in the rural education department and chairman of the Isabella chapter of the American Red Cross, and Dr. James P. Sharon, head of the Isabella county health, ■unit, were in charge of general arrangements for the clinic. Mrs. Ralph Crapo was in charge of all appointments. Members of Miss Margaret Koopman's social science class assisted with the clerical work at the clinic. SURGICAL DRESSINGS Organizations scheduled to surgical dressings this week are: P. M.

This is the opinion expressed by Thomas F. Moffett, V- 12 sophomore from Bridgeport, Conn., who was born in Korea and. lived there until 1937. As the son of Christian missionaries in that Japanese-annexed country, he was able to observe the ruthless indoctrination of Shintoism, the emperor-worshiping state religion of Japan. First indications of Jap brutality toward the native population were almost too carefully veiled for recognition but by 1935 Japanese authorities were vigorously attempting to convert Christian Korean pastors and their followers to Shintoism. Koreans were told to bow down before the Shintd shrines under the assurances that it was merely a friendly gesture toward Japan. Those Christians who claimed their rights under the Japs' religious toleration laws and would not participate in the emperor worship were imprisoned and tortured. Moffett's father was a leader in the movement of Christian missionaries against the Jap dogmatists and was therefore labelled by a secret Jap society of 30 members which vowed to fast until they had killed him. They may still be fasting because Tom's father was quite alive when he left Korea in 1937. Speaking of present conditions in Korea he said, "Since the missionaries who constituted the single protection for the natives,' had left the country by 1941 it is reasonable to expect that persecution now must be decidedly worse." Jack London famed American novelist and war correspondent who scooped the journalistic world in the reporting of the Japanese invasion of Korea in 1905, was a guest at ihe Moffett home in Pyongyang, northern Korea, during the hostilities.

Munroe Jr., Ft. Steilacoom, Wash, freshman, bounced back into the honor company race this week after a month's' absence by edging out company one, William Dukin, Omaha Neb. freshman, commanding. While the first company's demerit total was the lowest of five companies' in the battalion, its number of offences and its inspection report were sufficient to drop it to second place behind the hustling fourth company which came through with a low in offences and the best inspection report in the unit. The new standings in the honor race show that companies three and five have placed four bombs each on Ronan's island bombing representation of honor awards to lead the battalion. Company four now has three bombs signifying that many weeks as honor company and the first and second follow with a bomb apiece. Men h\the honor company will have additional liberty during the week as the result of their winning the week's recognition. NAVY MEN LIFE will be sent free of charge to aU departing V-12's who leave their names at the publications office. U y i>. ' "/. "'1 i - -! ..
