STUDENTS BRAVE SNOW
YOUTH8 AND CO-ED8 PLOW HERO-
ICALLY THROUGH DRIFTS
TO REACH CLA88E8.
It somo of tho University professors
aro inclined to think that tho studonts
do not lovo thoir classes, thoy should
havo had a blrd'B-oyo vlow of tho sov
oral converging trails that lead to our
beautiful campus. It would havo
stirred thoir pioneer blood with prldo
and hope.
Out on tho Sovontconth street car
lino; on South Elovonth and east on
0, beginning in tho groy dawn before
olght o'clock classes, dark forms be
gan to movo In a solemn procession.
Tho first onos out blazed tho trail
through tho whlto wilderness, down
tho middlo of tho car traok. Tho rest
followed. Horo and thoro 'was a Uni
vorslty professor. Wo expected them.
But what moved oaoto enthusiasm
was tho groups and clusters of stu
dents plowing sturdily ahead with
their books undor their arms. A stu
dent living out on South Sovonteonth
stroet says tho first man' ho saw go by
was Professor Fryo, muttering wicked
English invectives. , Next camo a fur
niture van, with sis sorority girls and
a street car conductor in it; then a
law student with a green plaid mackl
naw Jacket, etc. It was very interest
ing. In fact, tho observer missed a
nine o'clock class watching tho pro
cession from tho window through a
holo in tho laco curtain.
Thoro was not a remarkable falling
off in class-room attendance, although
not a street; car was running before
noon.
