Tongue-in-Cheek President

Retirement Activities: Riding and Needlepoint

Educational diplomacy often dic-
tates that a university president
suppress his sense of humor, Pres-
ident Ruthven has discovered over
the years.
Every so often, however, Presi-
dent Ruthven has allowed himself
a few moments of levity on educa-
tional subjects.
In an article dealing with the
uses which universities should
make of publicity mediums, he
once wrote:
"I would propose to enroll all
students as seniors and to grad-
uate them as freshmen. The argu-
ment would be that hindsight is

easier than foresight, and, if
our students could go backward
through college, they would more
directly and quickly come to their
second childhood.
"Of course, I would abolish
grades and examinatians, for one
can back most easily when there
are no obstacles to fall over, and
the students would enthusiastical-
ly cheer this provision. I would be
willing to make a substantial wager
that I could sell an article on this
theme. I am, moreover, certain I
could get the plan noticed in the
pictorial magazines by illustrating
it with snappy photographs of
shapely drum majorettes."

At Ruthven Tea
Ruthven teas have come to re-
present an important campus so-
cial. gathering over the years-
life-long friendships and engage-
ments have grown out of them-
but one student at least used the
occasion for something else.
Mrs. Ruthven recalls that on
one afternoon, a male student
passed through the tea line and
almost immediately disappeared.
Early the next morning he was at
the door again.
"I couldn't wait to get back to
finish that book," he said, head-
ing toward the library.
"I don't think we ever saw him
again," Mrs. Ruthven remembers,
"but we know that he read at
least one book while he was on
the campus."
