DISPLAYED BY CAT
Curiosity and companionship
are parts of human nature, but
they are in cat-nature too.
"Tuxedo" the cat is a good ex
ample of this.
Now "Tux," as he is called for
short, represents the Siamese va

looks as if he had been doused in
black ink from head to tail, except
the feet. All fours are white, along
with the big right under chis chin.
This kitty has been wandering
around the campus for quite
awhile now ever since school
started. As a result, he has ac
quired a number of other labels,
among which are "Boots" and

If you are not able to locate a
Mend on one of the next few
afternoons, and the lost individual
is known to be a baseball fan,
there is a good chance he can be
found in the Union lounge.
All World Series games will be
shown on the Union television set
beginning t 1 p.m.
If the enthusiasm for the first
play-off game between the Brook
lyn Dodgers and the New York
Giants is any indication of base
ball's appeal to University stu
dents, fans may have to break
fast in the lounge to insure them
selves a ?;eat for the afternoon
broadcasts. Nearly every seat in
the room was occupied for the
Monday play-off game.
Telecasts of the play-off games
have come in with exceptional
clearness. If present conditions
prevail, the series will be visible
the entire length of the lounge.
During previous games, the
crowd became so engrossed in
watching the television screen
that some were moved to cheer
or groan according to the pro
gression of their favorite team.
The Union boasts of having the
largest screen on campus. It is
expected to be an additional at
traction to fans.
Exact iates of the series have
not been determined. Previous
plans were upset when the Na
tional League pennant race ended
in a tie.
