The banquet was sponsored by
Sigma Delta Chi, honorary journal-
ism fraternity, and it was patterned
after the famous Gridiron Banquet
given annually by Washington, D.C
newspapermen. Since the inaugura'

Henderson, it has been presented t
11 other faculty men.
Each presentation was accompa-

May Prove Dangerous
When Old Sol starts beating down

come hot and disagreeable, students
begin to think about acquiring theirI
yearly sun-tan.
A 'tan' is beneficial to any student,
but it should be acquired slowly, Dr.
Warren E. Forsythe, director of the

tractions, but Dr. Forsythe cautioned
those people who go to Barton Pond'

ing. Dr. Forsythe declared that swim-
mers and those who go hiking should
be able to distinguish poison ivy.
