Feisty little ex-jockey J. Eddy
Milton current enfant terrible of
ACC's dessicated English depart-
ment announced this week that
he has secured Henry Miller as a
speaker at next week's lectureship
"Hank will speak on recent tend-

of greater things to come" Milton
says succintly. "The next year we
may get Mandy-Rice Dayies and
the year after thatj who knows.
We might even get Raymond Ful-lerton."
