For a fellow. who's suffered two
cracked ribs, a 17-stitch gash in
his side, and several sprained
ankles over a 12-year career, skier
Frank Bothwell surprisingly calls
"I've never had a broken bone,"
Bothwell said. "Although some-
times I wonder why." A freshman
literary student from Marquette,
Bothwell was crowned Class C
champion in the Central U.S. Sen-
ior Mens Alpine Ski Meet at Mar-
quette last weekend.
"In fact, my most serious in-
jury," he went on, "was the re-
sult of getting my sweater caught
in a rope tow. The tow pulled me
right through the safety gate at
the end and into a big iron spike
in front of the pullies."
"It took about 17 stitches in
my side to close the wound."
Another time, Bothwell climbed
out unharmed after a somersault-
ing plunge into an icy stream.
The first-place gold medal he
won at the Central States Skiing
Association's annual meet repre-
sents Bothwell's finest effort.

condition by Jumping rope and
playing I-M hockey."
"Michigan Tech and Northern
Michigan support skiing as a var-
sity sport," Bothwell pointed out.
"Generally speaking, their en-'
trants have an edge over skiers'
from schools where skiing competi-
tion isn't financed by the athletic

he smiled. "Naturally, the competi-
tion is terrific-but if I got thej
opportunity, I wouldn't hesitate
to take advantage of it."
"I think you should shoot for
the top in any sport," Bothwell'
said. "Going after it half way is
foolish." Which goes a long way
towards explaining Frank Both-
well's gold medal.
Bothwell has been skiing since
his father started him out at age
seven. The senior Bothwell has
never skied in competition, but

THE SEARCH FOR BRIDEY SIGAFOOS
It was a dullish evening at the Theta house. The pledges were
down in the catacombs; the actives were sacked out upstairs,
not doing much of anything. Mary Ellen Krumbald was stick-
ing pins in an effigy of the housemother; Evelyn Zinsmaster
was welding a manhole cover to her charm bracelet; 'Algelica
McKeesport was writing a letter to Fabian in blood. Like I say,
it was a dullish evening.
Suddenly Dolores Vladnay stood up and stamped her foot.
"Chaps," she said to her sorors, "this is too yawn-making! Let's
do something gay and mad and gasp-making. Anybody got an
"No," said the sorors, shaking their little sausage curls.
"Think, chaps, think!" said Dolores and passed Marlboro
cigarettes to everybody, for if there ever was a smoke to start
you thinking, it is mild and flavorful Marlboro! Things come
clear when you puff that good, clean smoke through that fine
filter-knots untie, dilemmas dissolve, problems evaporate,
cobwebs vanish, fog disperses, and the benevolent sun pours
radiance on a new and dewy world. Oh, happy world! Oh,
Marlborol Oh, soft pack! Oh, flip-top box! Oh, get some
India Madras Sport Coats
We have a comprehensive sejection of especidily
chosen India Madras patterns in blue,
olive, green, and red. Tailored in our own
pliant, soft construction to give you a coat
that is both comfortable and flattering.
Now Geraldine Quidnunc, her drooping brain cells revivified
by a good Marlboro, leapt up and cried, "Oh, I have a perfect
gasser of an idea! Let's hypnotize somebody!"
"Oh, capital !" cried the sorors. "Oh, tingle-making!"
At this point, in walked a young pledge named Alice Blue-
gown. "Excuse me, mistresses," said she, tugging her forelock,
"I have finished making your beds, doing your homework, and
ironing your pleats. Will there be anything else?"
"Yes," snapped Dolores Vladnay. "When I count to three,
you will be hypnotized."
"Yes, excellency," said Alice, bobbing a curtsey.
"One, two, three," said Dolores.
Alice promptly went into a trance.
"Go back," said Dolores, "back into your childhood. Go
back to your fifth birthday, back to your birth, to before your
birth, to your last incarnation ... Now, who are you?"
"My name is Bridey Sigafoos," said Alice.."The year is1818,
and I am in County Cork."
"Coo I" said the sorors.
"How old are you?" asked Dolores.
"I am seven," said Alice.
"Where is your mother?" asked Dolores.
"I don't know," said Alice. "She got sold at the fair last
"Cool" said the sorors.
"Tell us about yourself," said Dolores.
