'Ensians To Be Out
This Week-Maybe

distributed sometime this week-
The 'Ensian staff has learned
not to make any definite state-

last June when the campus year-
book was scheduled to make an
appearance, the printers, engrav-
ers, binders and everyone else con-

ed task of constructing 2,500 year-
books have besieged the harried
'Ensianonians with promises and
excuses, but not with 'Ensians,
Now it looks as though E-Day
