One young man with an un
usual sense of humor remarked
that he thought the funniest
thing In the April Fool edition of
the "Rag" was the box on the
front page concerning the regis

passed on to the hard-working
staff who had done their best to
supply humor (for a change).
The joke was really on them,
however, for the box was the

Much national comment hat been voiced in
regard to a movie soon to be released by 7Wn

Variety, the show business weekly, says the
show exposes certain evils of the college fraternity
system. Featured in the film will be Jeanne Crain,
Jean Peters, Mitsi Gayhor and Helen Wescott.

To Give Views
Dr. Ephriam Hixson will serve
as moderator as Ag students dis
cuss the Ag council proposal
scheduled for 4:30 p.m. today.
The proposed amendment to the
Ag Exec board constitution that
would alter the present method of
choosing representatives to in
clude delegates, Ag campus or
ganizations as well as other dele
gates, will be under fire.
A panel of four student leaders
will present their views briefly.
The panel members are: Eleanor
Erickson, Alice Anderson, Jerry
Johnson and Carl Gerwick.
The recently proposed change
in student representation would
allow each Ag campus organiza
tion meeting certain requirements
a delegate to the Ag governing
body. Proportional women repre
sentation is expected.
Supporters of this new plan
feel that something should be
done to bring about closer unity
and better spirit among Ag stu
dents. The discussion is fourth in a se
ries sponsored by the Ag Union.
Wib Gass and Norm Swanson are
co-chairmen of the events.

Then LeRoys "little men," the
puppets, appeared. They, like the
panorama behind them, looked
like their creator had spent a
great deal of time and had gone
to considerable trouble to make
their costumes take on the exact
effect he desired.
The acting commenced. The
children were entranced by the
true-to-life quality involved. For
the adults, the illusion of reality
was broken only by scene
Yet, in spite of these qualities,
the audience didn't accept the
performance as anything really

Just the same, the little mar

Little LeRoy went on about play
ing with his toyys as though he
had neveh seen what had gone
on in the little box that night.
Several years passed.
One day, news came to the wit
nessse of that performance that
its producer had received nation
wide acclaim honor after honor.
"Unbelievable!" was the excla
mation that topped the crests of
thought among many of those
people. Down deep, however,
they all shared the same senti
ments. They were glad they had
seen the puppets, even though
they hadn't cared to much for
them at the time.
In fact, some of them conde
scended by openly broadcasting
that they were very proud to say
they had seen them.
Reviewers and critics who had
seen the performance wrote sur
prisingly accurate accounts of
what they had seen so many
years ago. They were indeed
valuable because they represent
ed impressions of some of the
producer's earlier work.
Amidst the mental uproar, the
incident made a few people stop
and think. It was just like
school, in a way, they thought.
Those people, some of them
parents, told their children about
it, thinking they could benefit
from it. LeRoy was one of them.

of your textbooks, in a way," the
parent returned, hoping to arouse
a little interest.

things?" the child scoffed.

"Some people didn't exactly

"I don't see what that has to
do with it," LeLRoy commented,
"Just this. People weren't too
impressed with it, but yet when
it started to receoive attention,
they started remembering little
things about it. Some of them
wrote papers about it.",'
"I know," the boy persisted,
"but I still dont see it."
The Pay Off
The mother continued, "School
work, although it seems boring
at the time, and seems senseless,
pays off in the end. The same
way with textbooks, Their cov
ers are drab, nonedescript, but
tneir lacts are accurate just like
the curtains and background for
the marionette performance."
"I'm beginning to see what you
mean, but not quite all of it."
"The book's author, like the
producer, selects his materials
carefully and goes to a great deal
of time and trouble to make them
exact in every detail the same
was true with the puppets.'

the enlightened youngster. "I

Rosenlof to Head
Dr. G. W. Rosenlof, registrar,
and director of admissions at the
University, was elected president
of the North-Central Association
of secondary Schools last Satur
day at a Chicago convention.
The association is the largest
accrediting group in the United
States. Approximately 3,100 high
schools and over 300 colleges have
membership in the organization.
Schools in 19 North Central states
belong to the group. This terri
tory extends from North Carolina
to New Mexico and from South
Dakota to Oklahoma.
