By ANN PARRISH
That long grey limousine that
sits near Bennett Gymnasium
each day is not a rich boy's road-
ster. For freshmen who are con-

ACC "Grey Goose."

technical term) for transportation
of athletic teams.

In 1951 and cost approximately
It is a specially built Mercury
which has two sections of seats
inserted in the middle of the car.
All of ACC's athletic teams
travel In the "Goose." It has been
in every section of the United
States except the West Coast.

never been Involved In a major
accident it has had its troubles.

The "Goose" has been notorious
for having flats each timo

back when the generator failed.
The boys had to bed down
along the road while waiting
nearly four hours for a mechanic
Maybe after this brief "Grey
Goose" history you will not pon-
der when you see that long grey
streak moving about the campus
and resting by the gymnasium.
