According to Jack Edick, chair-
man of Slide Rule Ball, the law-
yers tracked down the whereabouts
of the "big rule" to a room in the
Union where it had been placed in
readiness for the engineer's dance.
JIMMYING THE LOCK, the law
men were able to cop the coveted
instrument and thus emerge vic-
torious over the engineers after the
past few weeks' rivalry with the
slide rule men.
In defense of this unfortunate

come to the slide rule; we have
something different up our
sleeves that won't be made pub-
lie until the dance is underway."
Thus the last-minute prepara-
tions for Slide Rule Ball are
