dragging out their Dirty Shirt
Contest, the Gomberg House Coun-
cil awarded the cash prize to the
winner just before spring vaca-
Jerry Richards, '56E, received
the $24.50 the eager house mem-

shirt when their lot turned up.
Richards asserts that the only
reason he stayed in the running

the benefit of those who happened
along behind the wearer.
Early this -emester, the remain-
ing contestants started a move to
split the money, but the House
Council decreed the contest must
be continued until one man was
Officials in the house said the
prospect of warm spring weather
and the fact that men would soon
shed their overcoats brought the
contest to a rapid close.
Rules stated that nothing could
be worn over the shirt except a
coat on cold days, or a dinner
jacket on special occasions.
