There's Always Another Day
While Fonde seems beset with
a wealth of lettermen, he is by
no means ignoring his underclass-
men.rHe is taking a good hard look:
at freshmen Bob Wilson, Jerry
Perkins and John Kitzmeller.
Fonde wisely acknowledges the
importance of developing the
team's young talent. "A good deal
of the success of any football team
depends upon the ability of the
young guys to improve."
The outlook is definitely prom-#
ising, but the emphasis on this

Tiger or Iamb:

Men who move in flocks don't make

The CPA often
hunts for answers
in wild new country. He's constantly
trying to solve problems that have no

guts. He may have to defend his an-

The demand for CPAs is growing
fast. Whether they are in independent
practice or part of the top manage-
ment team of a company, they are
taking on increasing responsibility in
financial and business affairs.
You can select the college courses
that can help you earn a CPA certifi-
cate soon after graduation. Or you
can take them in-graduate school.
Ask your faculty advisor about them.
