Each April, an air of mystery and
suspense, m'istus and suspicion
invade's Michigan's campus, and
University st uents and faculty
members ga 6icI in i;n&1l1 groups in
the Angell hlul loLiy to discuss theI
problen of the hour--"Who's go-
ing to get the Ol t n this year?"I
Nothing in ti,. Uiversity life
makes such a deer) campus impres-
sion as the Crid L anut -and no
singe honor is so covetedl as the
40-cent brass spike with its three
foot handle and its galaxy of en-
graven campus figures. There was
a time whn the Grid Banquet's
presentation of the "Oil Can" meant
that the recipient had "shot of
* his mouth" during the year and
deserved a little razzing. With the
increasing age and popularity of
the banquet the idea did an about-,
face, and the present owner of the
famous trophy told last year's au-
dience that is was 'the most valued
presentation he had ever received..
Sponsors Razfest.
Sigma Delta Chi, professional
journalistic fraternity; sponsors this
* annual, "razz-fest" as part of its
regular work. Members of Sigma
Delta Chi, chosen for their promin-
ence in campus activities, publica-
tions,.and ability in the journalis-
tic field with primary intentions of
making' it their profession, write
the skits for the entertainment af-
ter the banquet, design the decora-
tions and general theme of invita-
* tions, tickets and programs, pub-
licize the event, and put it across
as one of the major happenings of
the spring. Nearly all the campus
celebrities attend, national figures
make speeches, everyone gets slap-
ped and everyone laughs at every-
one else. It is the one time that the
student body can say what it likes
about anyone it likes and get away
with it.
But the gridiron banquet isn't'
the only event which Sigma Delta1
Chi sponsors. The annual conven-
tion of the Michigan Inter-schola-
tic Press, association is conducted
entirely by the fraternity, with the
* aid of the journalism department,l
* and heas proven greatly successful
and profitable for younger journal-
ists throughout Michigan. This,
year more than 200 attended from
every section of the lower penin-
sula, all the major publications inI
high schools throughout the statel
were represented, whether direct-
ly or indirectly. Along with this
three-day convehtion, the fratern-
* ity puts on contests throughout the
year among members of the Mich-
gan Interscholastic association for
cxellency in editorials, make-up,f
-gairaJl worth and standards. Prizes
tand cups are awarded in all classest
for the best newspaper, magazines,
and annuals in the state.
- These two major activities, char-
* acteristily laid to Sigma Delta Chi,
aren't the only things which the
group accomplishes by any means;
* they are, however, the two out-
ward and visible signs of live or-
ganization in the journalistic field.
The~ Gaboon, a satire, is published
at odd intervals throughout the[~
yea]' when events occur which need
spc(:ll atontion. A Baboon has
been issuedI in past years at the
homecoming games, but this year
it was deferred until the J-hop, a
change is of interst to campus
