Poll Reveals Dime Card Popularity

endless committee meetings and
sky-rocketing aspirin sales. So to
day we conduct a symposium of
campus opinion on class cards in

by the resolutions committee in
This proposed new plan would
mean that the classes would de

Tiger Payne: "I’m for the 10
cent class card, and I think it's the
noblest step taken by any class
in a long time. It isn’t Utopia but
we must sacrifice some principle
to that, of raising revenue. This
way it’ll get more people interested
in activities.”
Norm Foster: “Class cards are a
stupid idea. Charging 10 cents
doesn’t make it any cleverer than
charging 50 cents.”
Marge Clear: ‘‘If the cards are
only 10 cents, the blocks can pur
chase more votes cheaper . . . the
first five days.”
Bob Whitely: ‘‘If you’re going to
have class cards, what’s the differ

cents? All you get out of them
is the right to vote. You might
as well get rid of them.”

Dr. Noble to Speak
On Oriental War
Professor to Base
Talk on Own Life
Among Japanese
Dr. H. J. Noble, associate pro
fessor of history at the University,
will use information based on his
life spent in the Orient to make
up the text of his coming lecture
on “War and the Japanese People,"
tonight at 7:30 in Alumni room at
Gerlinger hall.
The talk will show the effect
that four years of war has had on
the Japanese people. “One of the
most striking changes brought
about by the war,” Dr. Noble de
clared in an interview, “is the dull
and drab robes that the women
wear. It is now against the law for
them to appear in the bright and
colorful robes that were so typical
of the Japanese race.
“Japanese students have all been
exempt from any active service in
the army until they are 25,” the
associate professor announced. "In
this way the intellect of the coun
try will not vanish.”
Dr. Noble spent the greater part
of his life in the Orient. He stud
ied and taught at the Government
Imperial college at Tokyo for sev
eral years. The lecture is a benefit
to aid Chinese students who are
suffering because of the war. Tick
ets may be purchased from repre
