The annual influx of newcom-
ers to the Big 'U' is not only
greeted by bureaucratic barriers
and red tape.
The freshmen and more sea-
soned transfer students, are also
given a more formal welcome,
by none other than University
President Robben Fleming, and
the current SGC president.
It was at Wednesday night's
Presidents' Welcome that 1 first
Larry leaned heavily against
a pillar in front of Hill A u d .,
where the festivities were due
to begin. He was one of the
orientation leaders, upperclass-
men, freshmen and other hang-
ers-on who had come to hear
Fleming and Student Government
Council's Bill Jacobs.
Larry has been at the Uni-
versity for three years now. He
said he had come to Hill be-
cause hehad never heard "ei-
ther whatz-' is-name or whatz-
Larry chatted for a while, then
took his seat inside, where Flem-
ing, visibly moved by the death
of his mother Tuesday - was tel-
ling the freshmen of the Clatss of
'76 to reflect the Spirit of 75,
"I'm not as remote a figure
as some people think a president
of a large University should be,"
Fleming continued. (This was
news to some people who had
come to see Fleming speak ;or
the first time in their oftinmes
long University careers.)
Cutting off his speech a f t e r
the usual, "I've already spoken
longer than I should," remark,
Fleming was followed to ti h e
podium (a gift from the Class
of '69) by SGC president B i 1 1
Jacobs told the students that
the University had "probems '
and that the way to solve them
was to "get involved."
The freshmen were seemingly
impressed. Said one: "It's good
that someone cares about im-
portant things and is looking ot
for my interests."
Carlson, an eight-year usher at
Hill, said he found the welone
to have been fairly typical ex-
cepting the fact that the "sire
of the crowd is the smallest I\e
There were about 700 students
at Hill, about half last year's
Larry, who finally revealed a
degree of astuteness, had an ex-
"No freshman wants anybody
to know that he is a freshman
and coming to the Presidents'
welcome is a dead giveaway.'
