Visions Duck Hunt
By Jane Randall
Now that the duck season is
over, one empty-headed little
coed makes a post mortem of her
She realizes now there is a dif
ference between that hunting trip
with her boy friend and the or
dinary species of date.
Overjoyed at being asked to
go, she accepted. "Oh good.
What time will you be after me?"
When the answer was "around
five" she said, "I didn't know
you were taking me out for din
ner." Thus, the first disillusionment
came to our little coed. She re
alized it was morning, not eve
ning that her beau was talking
Disappointed in Date
When the great day arrived,
she dressed in her best suit, hose,
and heels. She was very disap
pointed to see her date come aft
er her, sloppily dressed in his
North Pole jacket, greasy trou
sers and high boots.
While he growled and bit his
fingernails, she, with broken
spirits, scampered upstairs to dig
up big brother's cords, her old
sloppy Joe sweater and Dad's
woolen knee socks.
At last thev were off. Curi-

sored by the Ag Exec Board each

One of the oldest Ag tradi

program of entertainment will be

It was announced that the

that they were used to lure the

Always inquisitive, she probed
further, "But I thought you just

One of the busiest men at the
college of Agriculture is Gervase
Franke, a senior. He operates a
400 acre farm near Walton when
he is not in class or engaged in
other college activities.
Being a high ranking student
and managing a farm are both
major operations. Francke ac
complishes both by studying for
a while, then taking time for a
few days to work at home. On
his farm he raises corn, wheat,
j ; oats and alfalfa. Beef cattle are
his major JivesiocK enieipnac,
but he also raises hogs and
After his father died five years
ago, Gervase took over the farm
which he has since managed. His
greatest handicap arises in the
fall when he is faced with the
double problem of harvesting the
corn crop and preparing for 12
During his past 2hi years as a
student-farmer combo, Gervase
has accumlated a total of 114
credit hours with a grade aver
age in the upper 10 percent of
his class. In addition, he is a
member of Alpha Zeta, Ag hon
orary, Varsity Dairy club and
judging team, past vice president
of Block and Bridle, active in
YMCA and LSA and a member
of Farmhouse fraternity.
As a member of the junior
livestock-judging team, Gervase
was high scorer at the National
Western livestock show in Janu
ary, 1949; 15 universities com
peted at that show.
Advancing to the Senior live
stock judging team, Franks
pulled into third place in tho
entire nation at the Chicago In
ternational livestock exposition
last year. He was only two points
behind the high man in the con
test. The senior team, of which
he was a member, placed second
among the 34 university teams
Prof. M. A. Alexander of the
animal husbandry department
describes Gervase as having "the
determination ana competitive
fpirit combined with other quali
ties it takes to make a man suc
cessful." "It is remarkable," said
Alexander, "how he manages to
