revealing plans for a new era of
service projects.
The legendary stallion will be
available to all student horse-

March, Willens declared proudly.

personnel will be allowed the use
of the potent racer the last five
days of his stay, he added.
This will be merely the un-
veiling of an ambitious series of
SL serviceaprojects, which will
bring to campus many famous
personalities in the animal
world. SL officials were report- STURDY STUD

Willens chuckled over the way enraged by the SL coup d' amour.
SL had finessed the Union bureau- "We've always given the students

Custodial Head

John Q. Harton has been dis-
missed from his position as head
of the University's custodial force,
it was announced yesterday.
The penalty was imposed on
Harton after he was apprehend-
ed attempting to steal the Admin-
istration Building last week.
"Honesty is the best policy,"
commented University Vice-Con-
sul Jay Morgan Pierpont.
Harton was somewhat dazed
over his summary dismissal. He
declared wistfully that he had
"never even stolen a pencil."
-Meanwhile, an investigation of
alleged "irregularities" in the Uni-
versity Boy Scout chapter was re-
ported to be underway.

Man O'War will arrive on
campus in a lead box car after
completing his present European
tour. Arrangements are almost
set for quartering in the well-
equipped stable on the top floor
of Southern Dormitory.
Peter A. Oxford, Residence Hall
mogul, promised that Man O'War
would be fed with egg-enriched
hay to ensure a good performance
during his stay.
THERE seemed to be some con-
troversy brewing over his stay in
the dormitory. Al Ferry, '65E&D,
Czar of the Inter-House and
Daisy-Picking Society, protested
that the horse would disturb the
quadders living in the stable.
However, Oxford pointed out
that they were already getting
two glasses of milk at dinner.
After all, this isn't the Waldorf-
Astoria, he added.
Appointments can be made at
the Student Legislature Castle,
half a block south of The Daily.
The Survey Dynamics Center
will study student attitudes to-
wards the new project, report back
what sort of service is needed and
wanted by the student body.
