ites of spi
By DEBRA THAL
People, people, everywhere and sunshine, lollipops, ice
cream, Lt. Staudenmaier and the brown-green-grass welcomed
back spring yesterday.
As the temperature reached 73 degrees, impromptu picnics,
football games, and sunbathing became, as one sun worshipper
put it, the "only thing you can do in weather like this. After all
finals are more than a week away."
In the Arb, the White Panthers Youth International Party
sponsored a "Yippie Be-in" where several hundred people con-
gregated throughout the sunny afternoon.
As the season's first kites flew overhead, guitars, harmon-
icas, and dogs accompanied the walks along the river and
games people played.
Half a dozen frisbees flew through the air as both dogs
and humans played the game. A purple frisbee became a
special target of canine participation as two-and four-legged
sun worshippers cheered on the Dogs while the Humans vainly
attempted to secure the frisbee.
A radical game of Capture the Flag was organized by the
day's "revolutionary vanguard," and after a futile struggle
both sides lost when each captured each other's flag.
A ball mysteriously appeared and a soccer game began.
But it was interrupted when eight bandits liberated the ball
for a rugby tournament.
That's the way the day was-a little bit of this, a little
bit of that-all in the fun-sun.
