Playful Pathfir
'U' Grounds Ad
The whole campus might as
well be paved with concrete if the
practice of path-making is to con-
tinue, according to Walter Roth,
University plant superintendent.
Despite the fact that no grass
is showing these days, short cuts
are causing a great deal of damage
that will spoil the appearance of
the campus in the spring and
Short Cuts
Roth stated that it costs the
University a lot of money to main-
tain an attractive campus and
that this money is being wasted
by negligence on the part of stu-
dents and others.
"Short cuts in the winter prob-
ably would not be so frequent if

the pedestrians were aware of the
damage that is incurred by the
practice," he said.
Roots Killed
An interview with Prof. Felix
G. Gustafson, of the botany de-
partment, revealed that short-cut-
ting during the winter months
ruins the snow-covered grass be-
cause the snow becomes packed.
forming ice, which packs over the
roots and grass tops and kills
During period of melting, short
cuts are especially injurious be-
cause the mud churns up the
roots of the grass plants and re-
moves them from the soil, Prof.
Gustafson said.
Later, when the ground drys,
cutting across it packs down the
soil, making the growth of grass
In attempting to check the
practice of making short cuts, the
plant department has been reluct-
ant to use "Keep Off the Grass"
placards because they are usually
of little use and because they de-
stroy the appearance of the cam-
pus anyway.
The department feels that a
better approach to the problem is
to advise pedestrians of the dam-
age they are causing and to make
this phase of grounds upkeep a
student and faculty responsibility.
