Yet there is reason to believe
that Indiana will indeed be an
improved team this year. In their
last three contests in 1965. the
Hoosiers gave tough battles to the
top three teams in the conference.

to Pont. and is expected to click
with split end Bill Couch and
flanker John Ginter, both highly

"OOOOh" squeals Lady Candour as she comes upon a new source of off-color chatter. Peering over her shoulder with her snooper-sen-
sitive-olfactory-apparatus is Lady Sneerwell (Anne Francine); whose "School for Scandal" becomes an involved plot of intrigue and
humor. Joseph Surface (Ellis Raab), is the "sensitive, well-adjusted" member of the play; he is looking self-righteously at the grum-
bling, frustrated Sir Peter Teazle (Sydney Walker).
