PAUL CLEARY all-American Santa Trojan-of this Billion-Dollar Contest Will £nd With Wampus Issue Thursday Who is Mr. Hush? Only two more days remain for some lucky pe rson to come up with the answer to this puzzling enigma, and be the recipient of billions of dollars worth of pr*:«s. The person who guesses the identity of the Mr. Hush depicted on the cover of the December Wampus — on sale Thursday—will receive in addition to the hundreds of prizes already listed, a life membership card in Nu Iota plus regalia, 30,000 rubles (deflated) worth of borsch, a ticket entitling the holder to one free meal at the Student Union cafeteria, and a pulmotor. “This contest is open to all SC students who work for the Wampus or are related in some legitimate way to members of the staff,” announces Willie the Wam-pusbird, who is in charge of the contest. “We have had hundreds of entries submitted already, but all of them had to be disqualified for technical reasons.” Hints were given in yesterday’s paper, and added ideas may be found in the following poem: A toupee for Benny, for Harris it’s hamhocks: I’ll spend a whole evening just filling up damsocks.

Milt Dookin, senior representative said. After a complete discussion of the association's constitution at the senate session tomorrow night, a subsequent meeting will be called to cast a vote on three specific questions which will be put before the student governing body, Dobkin said. Should the senate ratify the national constitution, the regional constitution, and affiliate with the organization as a member are the three questions that will be presented when a vote is required. The five Trojan representatives of the student association. Diane Lockhart. Pat Hillings, John Houk, Paul Wildman, and Dobkin, will be present to answer questions and offer any information pertinent to the issue. Explaining the relationship between the ASSC senate and the National Student association, Dobkin said that the associated students as a group have membership in the organization and not the students themselves who are chosen by the student body to represent the university. Old Blue Key day.” John Morley, SC ticket manager, said yesterday. Mr. Morley also announced that ! there is a ticket available for every ; student activity card purchased and ' warned students that they must | present both the book and identifi-I cation card upon making the pur-; chase. Tickets sold during the three I days will be actual game ducats and J will not necessitate a later ex-i change. DISCOUNT RUMORS Discounting any end-z one ru-; mors, Mr. Morley said that approx-j imately 11.000 rooter's tickets for SC students have been reserved on I the east side of the Rose Bowl, ex-! tending from one 40-yard line i across the 50 and down to the gc .1 ; line. “It's about the same setup as the Coliseum plan except that rooters will not be seated beyond the goal line as tire section extends all the way to the top of the bowl,” Mr. Morley pointed out. “Students wTho do not have activity books will probably be out of luck as we only have enough tickets to accommodate those who purchased the booklets," Mr. Morley said. TICKETS HONORED The SC ticket manager also said that there is no need for long lines to form as none of the tickets are reserved. They w’ill be honored in exactly the same manner that has prevailed for all Coliseum games, first come, first served. The university has been allotted 44,000 tickets, all good for admittance to the east side of the bowl. Approximately 16.000 of these will be distributed to members of the SC alumni association. Michigan rooters who accompany the bowl-bound Wolverine grid squad will sit on the opposite side of the field and will pick up their tickets, which they have already bought, at the Huntington hotel in Pasadena where the Michigan football team will stay. Creer Quartet To Regroup The ASSC senate chambers vs^l resound with hep harmony instead of political harangues Thursday afternoon at 2:15 when Johnny Greer holds auditions for his campus vocal combo in the fourth-floor playground of the politicos. Greer yesterday stressed the need for singers with the fine voice quality demanded for the close harmony work of a small group. In addition to the talent requirement, the campus chirpers must be willing to devote four hours each week to rehearsals. Greer lost his three former cohorts by graduation, but hopes to have it completely reorganized by 1948. A spot on KUSO for the reformed quartet is planned. Styled in the “Pied Piper’’ manner. last year’s group appeared in several campus programs and dances, with big name bands Men to Meet Registrar's Notice WILLIE THE VWaMP ... I ain't Kush Blue Key members will meet this afternoon at 4 at the Beta Theta Pi house to consider the adoption of permanent by-laws for the local chapter. Milt Dobkin, president of the organization, said yesterday. “The meeting is for old members only,” Dobkin said, “as plans for initiation of new tappees will be dis-l cussed during the session. Highlight of the meeting is the presentation of the “outstanding man” award for the preceding semester. A corresponding sercetary will also be elected to replace Walt Maz-zone who will be graduated in February.
