SCRAP-HEAP IS END OF "OLD

BEN,"

I

wit in the- Daily.

Vw

"Ben" Franklin has disappeared.
Not the eminent and long-deceased
philosopher himself, but his replica as
represented by a time-worn pewter
and gilt statue which stood sentinel
in front of the old law building, long
years ago.
The discovery of "old_ Ben's" final
end comes as a result of preparations
for the Seventy-fifth Anniversary Cel-
ebration. Plans had been made to res-
urrect the revered "Doctor," in order
that the old "grads" back for the fes-
tivities might again look upon their
ancient and battered friend. Only one
thing prevented the carrying out of
this idea. "Old lien" was no more.
Once night sone eighteen years ago,
when "Old Bet" stood resplendent in
his garb of bronze, on a .pedestal 1o-
cated near the northwest .corner of
the campus, some sacrilegious student
threw a bottle and hit the dignified
gentleman In' the middle of the back.
But the missile did not stop at the~
spinal column-it went right through
the pewter casing of the statue and
dropped down in one shoe.
Old Ben Falls From Grace.
Following the bottle incident, " Old
Ben's" self-respect was at an end. He
had always been regarded as imp reg-
nable, pt d when it was discovered that
his bode ,i~vr.s only an affair of thin
pewter, -many a brick-bat was hurled
at the innocent preteader.;
It soon baeean~e necessary for "Ben"

to. undergo a severe operation which
even specialists hesitated to attempt.
The skull of the old gentleman was
chiselled open, and several barrels of
cement poured into his innermost
depths, After that, he was gilded
anew, and for several days "Old Ben"
looked much as in days of yore.
Early Frost Ends the Doctor.
But the reincarnation was brief. The
operation had been performed late in
the fall, and before the cement could
dry, a frost struck .Ann Arbor, and
proved to be the final undoing of "Old
Ben." The cement in the statue froze,
bulging through the-pewter casing at
every joint. The arm holding a hat
dropped Off, and the "Doctor" became
unrecogni~zable, even, to friends who
had known himt in his former dissi-
pated state.
When "0ld Ben's" condition was
found to be irremediable, he was un-
ceremoniously hoisted from his ped-
estal and stored in the university paint
shops. There he remained, covered
with dust and grime, until last winter.
Then one day, a wagon backed into the
distorted body of the "Doctor,"! and he
fell down in a heap. Nothing remain-
ed but to shovel him up and cart his
ashes away to an ignoble burial in the
dump-lot".
So "Old Ben" will not be "at home"
to receive old friends during Coin-
mencement week.
