Students begin sculpture pieces
by first making a form of the sub
ject from clay. When the clay
is shaped like they want it. a
cast is made from plaster. The
plaster cast is taken from the
clay mould in several pieces and
the clay that comes off with the
cast is scraped off. The pieces are
assembled and are held together
with plaster and pieces of paper
put over the cracks.
The plaster cast is well soaped
on the inside to prevent the plaster
from sticking to the cast when it is
poured inside the cost. After the
plaster is poured and allowed to
dry, the cast is chipped off, as the
plaster cannot be used again. It
takes about a semester to com
plete one piece.

Yell Squad Creates Confusion
Dressing As Referees, Team
By MARILYN MITCHELL
The past football season saw the
University's Yell Squad members
as flappers, African hunters, ref
erees and even as the football team
These home game extras were
performed by the squad during the
two-minute lull between the Na
tional Anthem and the entrance of
the football team, to create, Yell
King Dan Fogel said, additional
pre-game spirit and enthusiasm.
General confusion was created at
one game by cheerleaders dressed
as referees striped shirts, whis
tles, and red flags. Members mea
sured everything from goalposts to
the field itself.
Scout Takes Part
The third game stunt was 'our
best" said Fogel. The squad caused
"utter confusion and bedlam" in th
stadium as it ran out from the field
house dressed, including the coed
members, as the football teams
starting lineup. They performed
routine exercises, and then ran
through two tricky plays.
Fogel said the spectators were
fooled until the real team came
onto the field.
Fiji "natives," Frank Buck and
a Boy Scout were featured in the
one game stunt. Dressed as hunters
the squad appeared and spotted a
Missouri tiger in the middle of the
After the squad shot the tiger, the
Fijis carried it away.
The tiger was played by a Boy
Scout usher. Fogel said that short
ly before game time, the squad dis
covered the tiger costume was too
small for any member. The Boy
Scout finally consented to partici
pate in the skit.
Team of 79
Dressed as college sheiks and
flappers of the Roaring 'Twenties,
the Yell Squad saluted the Team
of 29 at the fifth home game. The
Charleston, Beta Band and old
time truck added to the stunt.
Guest cheerleaders were another

the soulful sigh of a student with a
three-o'clock class on Friday after
noon. Ah, Spring, with its Hell Week.
Hell Week? Good Grief!
Day of Great Ax
The scourge of a thousand
pledges, that is Hell Week. The
River Styx is nothing compared to
that doomful day when the great
ax descends on scores of cringing
necks, and another batch of apple
cheeked pledges is whirled into
deep, black void, smelling a little
of Dante's Inferno and a damp
day at the skunk works.
Hell Week is the end, the fin
ish, the grave.
"Report at noon tomorrow in
work clothes," given in a Slightly
harsh tone is the first sign of Hell
Week for most pledges, starting
off on what they expect to be a
cross between Devil's Island, a
Alabama chain gang and a good
month at Quantico.
First, there are a few things to
do, like painting every flat surface
in sight, refinishing floors, repair
ing woodwork, fixing electrical
wiring and messing around 'with
the plumbing. Sometimes this might
last well into the wee small hours of
the mysterious night.
Work For Underprivileged'

the walls of the house, where pledg

Four Fry To Miami
Four members were elected by
the Squad to attend the Orange
Bowl game at Miami: Fogel, Tom
Olson, Doris Anderson and Marilyn
Fogel said they were expecting
a four-hour layover at the Chicago
airport, but due to a tie-up, they
left Chicago, 15 minutes after ar
rival there. Only nine were aboard
the 88-passenger plane.
When they left Chicago, they left

rived in Miami, put their coats on
and stepped out into 88 degree sun
shine. Police as excorts, the Alumnae
Association, the Orange Bowl Com
mittee and even a sightseaing tour
leader all honored the Yell Squad
with gifts and dinners.

underprivileged or doing vast am
ounts of yard work for those who
cant do their own.
There are also games designed
to develop physical prowess and
muscular coordination. These are
greeted with shrieks ot gaiety by
participants and spectators, alike.
Sometimes the pledges are given
a friend, usually of the animal
gender, to keep them company and
share their quarters during their
hours of stress.
In going to classes, pledges are
encouraged to dress their best and
to keep a lively pace when going
from building to building, giving
the campus a holiday atmosphere
as staunch young men are seen
trotting briskly along, ties flapping.

Commenting on "'We Can Baffle
the Brainwashers" an article in
the Saturday Evening Post by Rear
Admiral D. V. Gallery, Auston dis
agreed with Gallery's opinion that
those lads accomplished nothing
by their heroism."
But Austin agreed with Gallery's
estimate of what Communists want
from prisoners: propaganda, pri
marily, tiot military information.
Austin, who was imprisoned by
the Germans for more than two
years, declined comment, however,
on Adm. Gallery's proposal to "'give
the Reds anything they want for
propaganda purposes and defy the
to use it"
Austin was captured by the Ger
mans in North Africa on Feb. 22,
1943. From there, he was transport
ed to a prison camp near Fuersten-berg-an-der-Oder,
miles east of Berlin.
Americans in the camp were not
maltreated, Austin said. "1 -never

American prisoners, he added.
"Russian prisoners, be s a i d,
