What's Up With The IMA?
What's up with the Independent Men's Associa
Collegian wishes the answer were icing and com
plicated Apparently it is not. There is nothing
lip with the IMA. All is quiet on that front,
The IMA had better not reply that there is noth
ing Up because there is nothing to do. Organiza
tions that have nothing to do have no excuse for
Pounded two years• ago and dedicated to the
yrentiositinn of improving the tot of the indepen
dent man, the IMA grew perhaps too
, fast for its
cWn good, launclied an ambitious program of in
creasing social opportunity for the non-fraternity
;group, won general approval, arid then fizzled. out
like a half-cent firecracker.
if no one could accuse the IMA of hurting any
thing, not much would have to be said about the
Yilaiier, and some dark night before the odor got
too terrific, a shOvel crew could take the corpse
exit and bury it quietly t
1-loWever, it persists in calling itself an Indepen
dent Men's Association, persists in calling spas
linddic and badly attended meetings, pretends to
I•Je doing a job it really is not doing, and a job it
this prevents anyone else from attempting.
Like IFC the IMA needs the strong faculty
counseling that has been asked and hoped for in
an enlarged dean of men's staff, but, like IFC, the
IMA should manage to do a little something fot
If the IMA has conducted any exte.nsiv, intra
rotirals this fall, Collegians has not heard of them
If it has had more than one well attended meet
ing, Collegian is surprised.
If it has undertaken—not just thought about—
any organized social program to match that of the
fraternity system, that is news.
If it has seriously tried to boost its membership
vThidli has dropped from 17 to 11 units, Collegian
41as not heard of it.
If it has started—not just talked about—even
one worthwhile new project, Collegian will be
glad to know about it.
If it doesn't do something or start something,
Collegian is going to have a lot more to say.

Notes On Café Society •
Most novel dance of last weekend (tch, tch, Lion
Tales). was the cafe affair at SPE . . . a colored
doorman wearing Tommy Sica's blueband coat
greeted guests . . . an illuminated sign in front
flashed "Club Sig Ep" . . . guests sat at tables
night club style and sipped beverages (strictly
WCTU) dispensed at an imitation bar . . . fences
separated tables from dance floor where Campus
Owls reigned . . .
Art Meyers and Gwen Harris announced that
they were linked
. by a sweetheart pin . . . Paul
Gies '4O and Peggy Moyer '39 were back . . . Elsie

We note with interest the news item on the
front page of yesterday's DAILY COLLEGIAN to
the effect that the college had levied 385 fines of
$5 each in enforcing the Thanksgiving Day class
cut Rule. That ain't exactly hay!
We took three or four math courses around
here, to say nothing of Money and Banking and
every time that we figger it out, we get the same
total—sl92s in fines. That still ain't exactly hay!
So we came to the conclusion the only smart
thing for the Bursar to do is to stop by McLan
ahan's and get one of the new Buxton Wallets, that
they arc featuring for the Holiday trade at $2.00.
Anyone who has that much money ought to have
a safe place to keep it, and those Buxtons sure
fill that bill or something. Smartly designed in 4
black or brown, they'd make an ideal gift. Yes,
they have the Lady Buxton for Women and that's
plenty smart, too.
