"Why should we be forced to
live in a temporary structure lo-
cated a great 'cfistance from the
campus?" querie&Fraud. She said
she understood why some of the
men were forced to live in the bar-
racks but she did not see why
"some of the girls should have to
live in similar conditons."
Proposing a solution Fraud said
that the boys could be moved from
McDonald which used to be a
girls dorm into the barracks. The
girls could then be moved from
obsolete Gardner into McDonald.
"Then Gardner could be torn
down and the new beautiful mod-
ern girls' dorm that we have been
promised for so long could be
: built" added Fraud who holds

was inspired by the wild melee

his head bowed at the time and
was only made aware of the sprint-
er's approach when the chapel
checker inadvertently dropped his
pencil and leaned over to pick it
up thus poking his head clear
through the one-way mirror.
Said Timz "It was fixed . . .
they had it rigged upstairs."
Barf gagging for air only com-

And he wasn't.
An Ad For Easter
The casual newspaper reader
would have passed lightly over the
ad; it was unly a brief squib in the
For sale: One used electric
guitar with amplifier. Make
me an offer. Charlie Easter.
Write Box 69 ACC Station. No
phone calls please.
However as the ad salesmen are
quick to point out advertising
' talks. And in this case it was bab-
bling a pretty lurid tale.
When queried about his motives
in discarding the guitar Easter re-
plied: "It's not that I've lost my
interest in music it's just that I
can detect a real conflict in interest
here. One fellow has already re-
minded me of it personally you
Easter who is hoping to earn a
pass over to the Tokyo Olympic
games in his half-mile speciality
explained further: "Let's just say
that I had a slight disagreement
with a lofty associate who has since
gone on to seek higher things else-
where." The blond-eyed gaitster;who has
been understandedly close-mouthed
about the whole affair con-
cluded: "This fellow has a problem;

I'd had a couple more days to
work on that last song though. It
was a real jaw-breaker!"
The American public has; over
the 'years grown to know and love
the mauldin reminiscences of de-
mure sophisticated Raymond Fool-
erton. This week Foolerton's first
book I'm So Pretty a collection
of his journalistic writings will
be published. Readers will be wise
to order copies in advance since
the first edition is sure to be quck-
In his first piece Foolerton ejac-
ulates "I love the Alpha Cow sor-
ority and the two or three girls in
it who will speak to me." Then he
lists those fortunate damsels' each"
of who will undoubtedly want a
copy of this book.
In the second article Foolerton
fondles the earth-shattering issue
of whether his group of male
cheerleaders should wear short
skirts or slim-jims. He appeals to
his loyal public for an answer.
The remainder of his writing is
equally stimulating and provocative.
