the door shut, another fan managed to
free a second door allowing the crowd
to push its way inside.
IN THE second floor reference room,
the mass of bodies created the largest
fracas of the night. When it was over,
the room was scattered with papers and
trash. Few were left studying.
"If you think of what it might have
been like to write a paper when the
freak show came through . . . that's
where the real damage lies, not in the
papers being scattered," said Paul
Beavers supervisor of circulation at the
Lorne Brown, an LSA junior studying
when the crowd entered, said she ex-

THE enthusiasm was infectious,
though, and many of the studiers
eagerly joined in the partying.
"I was in the library with my books
and I heard the din, then the roar," said
Neil Matovelle, an engineering senior.
"I ran down to see what happeend and
joined the crowd."
Tiring of the libraries, the crowd
finally split into two groups about 10:45
p.m. to infiltrate campus dormitories.
One headed towards the Hill dorms,
while the other marched to South Quad.
The first of the Hill dorms to ex-
perience the Tiger euphoria was
Stockwell. Dave Taylor, a LSA senior
brought along his bartione horn to lead
the group in renditions of "Let's Go
Tigers!" and "Charge!"

Student mob takes
portable party on tour
Following last night's Tiger victory a mob of students took
to the streets in a spontaneous celebration. The dotted line on
the map below traces the path of the horde as they toured the
campus and stopped at the folowing points:
1) Revelers gather outside Charlie's after the Tigers' 8-4 vic-
tory over San Diego.
2) The mob, now numbering approximately 300 people,
moves down State Street, slowing traffic.
3) The celebrators run wild through the Nickels Arcade.
4) The Undergraduate Library is the first University building
to feel Tiger fever as the gang parades through the UGLi
5) The students pay a friendly visit to University President
Harold Shapiro. Shapiro did not come out to greet them,
despite their insistent pleas.
6) The law library is invaded by the boisterous group.
7) The next stop for the group is the Union. Though still en-
thusiastic, a few of the group have fallen by the wayside.
8) After the Union, the partiers converge on the Graduate
Library. They are refused admittance and about 150 of them
head for the Hill Dorms. The others - less than 100 - are
more persistent, and wreak havoc in the grad. That group hit
the quads after their library spree ended.
