a furious three-day campaign, the
board of governors of Bzantium
University picked I. P. Zoraster,
former athletic director, as its
new president.
Zoraster, who built .thic - tay
college into one cf the biggest in-
stitutiong. -in Egypt through his
"YirriLng spear throwing teams, re-
places Dr. B. F. Svuiwfo who will
retire next month. Svuiwfo has
been president here since 1929.
ZORASTER, long known as thej
actual head of this institution,
promised sweeping changes in the
administration of the university.
"We must cut out all this
fooling ardund with research,"
he said. "The people want win-
nmg spear throwers, and they
are willing to pay to see them."
He outlined plans to increase
the size of the spear throwing
arena to more than three times
its present capacity, to handle the
huge crowds that have been pour-
ing in to watch his spear throw-

ZORASTER revolutionized spear
throwing about five years ago
when he introduced his system of
multiple throwers. Under this
scherne, members of the team are
spaced along the flight path of
the spear and the shaft about a
hundred yards apart and the spear
is thrown from one to the other,
but kept off the ground.
Stands have been. raised all
along this half mile course for
paying spectators.
Zorastor ran into his first big
fight here last year when student
leaders protested their side-line
seats and asked to get in the so-
called "end zones" where they
could watch the original throw or
final landing of the spear.
THREE OF THESE student
leaders are still being held in soli-
tary confinement in the local ath-
letic office. Zoraster charged
them with unsportsmanlike con-
duct.

The Young Anarchists held
their dicennial luncheon at the
Y.W.C.A. Wednesday noon, at
which Miss Jeano Jensian was
elected president for the next ten
years.
Miss Jensian was elected by the
group's time-honored voting sys-
tem, in which the person receiving
the fewest votes becomes the pres-
ident for the decade.

The other officers elected at thet
meeting were Fobia Feldman,

Our Southern Neighbors; Ryan
Potts, Director of the North Pole;
Fleet; Reed Allcan, Director of
the South Pole Fleet; and Hotte

THE NEW PRESIDENT out-s
lined the Young Anarchist's plansI
for the coming decade. A tag day
for the Destruction of the Ma-
chine Moguls will be held some
time late next December, and a
campus-wide drive for operating

funds has been planned tentative-
ly for 1953.
The meeting was adjourned to
a local emporium at the close of
the meeting, where an open for-
um discussion was held on "How
to Popularize Bock Beer for Fall
Consumption."
Retiring President Ripsky we nd
not comment on the state of the
treasury at this time but she em-
phasized that new ways wcid
be found.
The group has agreed not to
hold its 1960 meeting because it
is not certain that all the mern-
bers will be in condition for it.

RETIRING PRESIDENT, Miss
Stoma Ripsky, gave an address,
"My Ten Years With A Mad Bol-
shevik." She was presented with a
genuine sheepskin certificate by
the group for her service to the
Young Anarchists.

The Student Legislature last
night moved to launch one of the
biggest student campaigns in the
history of the University.
Backed by a record vote of 19,-
9O students in the last election,
the SL promised to "fight to the
finish" to see that pencil sharpen-
ers are placed in the Gardenv
Room of President Ruthven'se
home.f
* * *c
ACCORDING TO Norman Q.
Nebish, S.L. president, "this isr
prcbably one of the most impor-
tant programs that SL has ever
undertaken."
"The President's C o f f e e
Hours," he continued, is the on-
ly time when most of the stu-
dents cantake time out to get
their pencils sharpened-and it
is an appalling waste of pre-
cious minutes and butter knives
to sharpen pencils with the pre-
sent facilities.
Last night's decision was reach-
ed after eight hours of stormy de-
bate, 18 points of personal privi-
lege, and 216 points of clarifica-
tion.
* * A
THE MOTION was introduced
by George Rumbel, Campus Ac-
tion Committee chairman, who
said that "this is something we
can really do in the interest of
higher education.'
"Nothing can stop us from
fulfilling our obligations to our
constituents-even if it takes
years."
T h e motion w a s supported
wholeheartedly by T. Charles Pipe,
who said the lack of pencil sharp-
eners in the Garden Room was
a breach of the Student Bill of
Rights.
"The Bill," he said, "provides
for each individual to receive an
education commensurate with his
natural abilities. To withhold
sharpeners at the most appropri-
ate places hinders the individual
from realizing this right." Pipe
continued his brief speech for
sixty-four minutes.
LEADING THE faction against
the motion was John J. James,
veteran legislator, who said that
although he supported the motion
in substance, he felt that increas-
ing the amount of pencil sharpen-
ers would be detrimental to the
health of professors.
Lang To Talk

Prof. Arnold B. Lang, chairman
of the geology department of the
University of Albuquerque, will

cesses in Western River Beds," at

mountains and valleys, has re-
cently returned from an explora-
