OS-EWE WAGER ARRIVES:
DeltaChi's Win Sheepskin-on the Hoof
The Delta Chi's won a bet on
the Michigan-Ohio State football
game and 140 pounds of live mut-
ton along with it.
The latest edition to the cam-
pus pet menagerie, a ewe named
"Miss Kimball," arrived in the
trunk of a '49 coupe yesterday
morning. She was brought by the
Delta Chi's of OSU in place of
the traditional sheepskin present-
ed by the losing chapter.
Friday night her arrival was
heralded by a telegram announc-
ing the early delivery of the
sheepskin. At 10:30 a.m. yester-,
day the mobile sheepskin lumber-
ed into the fraternity house.
THE FIRST thought from the
Delta Chi's, who achieved earlier
Greek fame by acquiring a skunk,
was to give Miss Kimball to their
country brothers at Michigan
State College. A second proposal
was to enter the ewe in the MSC
campus queen contest.
But the revelation by several
of the brothers with rural back-
grounds that Miss Kimball
should have been "Mrs." caused
the Delta Chi's to temporarily
adopt the expectant mother.
Despite a city ordinance that
forbids cattle to reside in an "AA"
housing zone the fraternity mem-.
bers are determined to keep her
at least until their pledige formal
SHAGGY SHEEP-Henry Winchester, '51E, steward at the Delta
Chi house, ponders the live mutton presented by the fraternity's
Ohio State chapter in payment for a football bet. The problems
of feeding, housing and socializing the animal have made a minia-
ture sheep ranch of the fraternity.

A recently formed "Action-Re-
search" committee has begun in-
vestigating the management of
six strictly student-run co-op
houses on campus.
United in the Intercooperative
Council, Which takes care of the
combined financial, legal, pur-
chasing and administrative busi-,
ness of the residences, members
have been appointed to carry on
this self-examination to determine
"how efficient are we?"
RECENT personnel tuyn-overs
in the council convinced the mem-
bers they must establish some
system to keep well-trained stu-
dents in managerial roles when
graduating seniors leave impor-
tant positions vacant.
The committee will attempt
to discover a way of indoctri-
nating new members of the
houses with co-op traditions in
a short period of time.
The committee will be broken
into sub-committees to study the
work of co-op governing groups,
and to eliminate gaps or over-
lapping of functions.
"We are proud of our student
management, and think the struc-
ture for our operating is sound,
but we favor this investigation to
increase efficiency in the detailed
routine work," an ICC representa-

MEANWHILE, several Delta
Chi's planned to register for an
extension course on animal hus-
bandry from MSC.
Miss Kimball has rapidly ad-
justed to campus life despite
the hostile reception she receiv-
ed from the official house mas-
cot, a dog named Delta. Alter-
nating between the front lawn
and the cellar, Miss Kimball has
been nonchalantly munching on
the two-day supply of hay she
brought with her.
And while the pledges scour
the countryside for hay to keep
Miss Kimball alive; the house
steward is looking for a customer
for 140 pounds of mutton-on the
