Take Ten
On Oct. 22, 1968, with the presidential election less than a month
away, three members of the liberal Americans for Democratic Action
debated the relative strengths of the candidates. Law Prof. L. Hart
Wright supported Humphrey since he could "provide America with
badly needed time" to reach solutions to domestic problems; his
colleague Paul Carrington backed Nixon in part because "Humphrey
lacks the ability to get out of the war; and Dr. Edward Pierce-now
running for State Senate-compared Humphrey to former President
Johnson and recommended voters back McCarthy.
A head for business
Everybody's out looking for a way to make a couple of bucks but
not many people use their head the way Philadelphian George
Dashnav did. The 55-year-old advertising executive has obtained
several human skulls from a medical supply firm and is marketing
them for $100 each. "It all started when I was a kid," Dashnau ex-
plained. "I saw a print of an alchemist holding a skull and I thought
"Gee, that would be a keen thing to have." The salesman said he hopes.
his clinetele will include "business executives who want an unusual
desk ornament." If the idea catches on, he plans to offer a wider range
of merchandise. Who knows? Perhpas the next attraction will be'en-
tire skeletons for those avid entertainers who went an unusual stan-s
ding lamp for their living room.

Mrs. Griffin visit

As she joined the small, hesitant
circle of people at the entrance to the
living room at Betsy Barbour dor-
mitory Friday afternoon, the smiling
young student wasn't quite sure what,
she should say. She stood still, looking
expectantly at the small, white-haired
woman who was the center of attention.
As if from reflex, the energetic older
woman leaned forward, offered a hand,
and recited cheerfully, "Hi, I'm Marge
Griffin. The senator's wife. What's your

casually dressed student as she let go of
the handshake, wondering, perhaps,
how else she might identify herself.
Without hesitation the visitor asked
where Sarafin was from. Since she was

SINCE 19571 when Republican
Robert Griffin first ran for Congress
and Marge walked door-to-door on one
side of the street and her husband
walked the other, she has been setting
aside election years as periods for
exhaustive public exposure.
During the 55-year-old politician's
five terms in Congress-from 1956 to
1966-the Griffins sought exposure
every two years, at election time. But
since 1966, the senator's first year in
that office, the exposure has become in-

"BY THE END of a day, I feel so
tired," she-said Friday, while visiting
campus on a handshaking trip. As if it
explained her weariness, she added "I

She had only just finished a descrip-
tion of the political views of those
children-one is a "great liberal,'
another "quite conservative," and both
are to her left, as is the senator by her
estimation. Then she launched into a
