have his picture and name in the
1943 yearbook. Fraternity initia-

sorority groups, will all make good
material for the informal snapshots
needed. Any good action shot show-
ing a phase of University life will be
eligible if taken this spring, fall or

one of the ten free 'Ensians to be
given for the best pictures should
