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
met Larry.
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-

'U' frosh

versity for three years now. He
said he had come to Hill be-
cause hehad never heard "ei-
ther whatz-' is-name or whatz-
is-face" speak.
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,
America's bicentenniel.
"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."
Larry laughed.
Carlson, an eight-year usher at
Hill, said he found the welone
to have been fairly typical ex-
cepting the fact that the "sire
Rent your
Roommate with

of the crowd is the smallest I\e
ever seen."
There were about 700 students
at Hill, about half last year's
turnout.

Larry, who finally revealed a
degree of astuteness, had an ex-
planation.
"No freshman wants anybody
to know that he is a freshman
and coming to the Presidents'
welcome is a dead giveaway.'
