COLLEGIANS DUEL WITH GREASED PIG
In the spring, a certain madness overtakes the
academic mind and is manifested in festivals
of various natures -- at SMU in Dallas it's
called Manada, a Spanish word with references to
wild Mustangs. But the object of today's bit of
madness is no mustang. Rather, a pig-in-a-
poke -- an understudy to today's production
since the star pig somehow disappeared in the
wake of Tuesday's tornado.
GIRLS RACE ON SLEDS
The 30-pound porker is momentarily forgotten as
the Manada Marathon gets underway. The coeds,
bearing the unmistakable poise of sorority girls
compete for trophies.
PIG IN SACK
What's goin' on out there?
Here’s what’s next.
