COLLEGE ROUNDUP:
Harvard Students Finally
Yield to Old King Football

By DAVE THOMAS
The rumbling heard last week-
end by observant citizens as far
west as St. Louis, was not an
atomic blastsor even an earth-
quake - it was merely old John
Harvard turning over in his grave.
In Cambridge the racket was
terrific. Disillusioned by a dis-
astrous, single-victory football
season, students at staid, ivy-cov-
ered Harvard University succumb-
ed to the allurements of old king
football.
IN A POLL conducted by The
Harvard Crimson, sixty-eight per
cent of the students participating
in the poll called for preferential
scholarship treatment for varsity
iootiaii players.
Of the 2,421 students who were
questioned, another 73 per cent
thought that footballers should
get preference in part-time jobs
Opera Needs
Publicity Men
A meeting for men interested
in working on the Union Opera
publicity committee will be held
at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in Rm. 3D of
the Union.
Organization and functions of
the opera's publicity-dispensing
body will be explained at the
meeting by Cliff Rogers, '50 BAd,
opera publicity manager.
Men are needed for all phases
of publicity work.

and 82 per cent favored an or-
ganized alumni group which
would beat the bushes for prom-
ising talent.
The university administrationl
had previously declared that it
was withdrawing from all inter-
sectional contests except for tra-
ditional rivalries.
At. the same time, however, it
vas indicated that the university
would soon guarantee jobs to im-
pecunious athletes and aid in the
financing of the Athletic Associa-
tion which supports the football
team.
HEADLINE OF THE week comes
from the California Daily at the
University of California where stu-
dents have recently become con-
:cious of a major college social
problem after a university crack
down on the consumption of cer-
in fluids: OTHER COLLEGES
HAVE LIQUOR BANS TOO.
Underneath this revelatory bit
of journalism were the results
of a survey reported by the Tem-
perance Board of the Methodist
Church.
According to the survey, alcholic
beverages are not permitted on the
campuses of more than 60 per
cent of all American collegiate in-
stitutions.

At Ohio State repercussions from
the tragic homecoming night
shooting of a student newspaper
editor were still being felt. The
University has announced that all
ornament bottles used for decora-
tion in fraternity houses must go.

There are ways and there are
ways to hit jackpots, as three un-
lucky students discovered one
snowy night last week.
The three were proceeding
down Liberty St. in a shiny new
automobile approaching the stop
sign at Division. The driver put
on the brakes. They didn't hold.
The car continued down Liber-
ty St.
* * *
IT WAS THEN that they hit
their . jackpot-a car already
stopped at Division owned and
driven by Associate Dean of Stu-
dents Walter B. Rea.
Riding with Dean Rea at the
time was John P. Gwin, admini-

strative assistant in the Office
of Student Affairs charged with
issuing driving permits and
registering student-owned cars.
After the collision, all five
piled out of the cars and went to
work disengaging the bumpers
which had gotten stuck together.
DEAN REA and the other driver
followed the procedure set down
by insurance companies and im-
mediately exchanged names and
addresses.
Then as the five worked at
disengaging the bumpers, Dean
Rea introduced Gwin to the
student-driver. Gwin, unable to
forget his job even though it
was after 5 p.m., laughingly
asked the student, "Do you have
a University Driving Permit?"
The driver is now awaiting the
action of the Disciplinary Com-
mittee.
