6The Impossible9
The impossible was accom
plished four times last se

straight nine point averages.
A nine is the perfect score
at the top of the University
grading scale.
These four scholars battled
against 1600 to 1 odds and
6.400 undergraduate students
to achieve the supreme score.
Four Colleges

Shrieks from Bessey

Is the campus spooked?
Hardly. It's that time of
year again around St.

Irish sprites found even in

These are female spirits of
the old sod who generally
follow old families and do
a great deal of walling
about them.
But on March 17, they're
granted a reprieve and
focus their noise making to
celebrating St. P a d d y's
day. They belong in Morrill
Hall along with all the oth
er antiques and museum
In case there was some
question about the noise at
the Administration Build
ing, that's easy enough to
answer. The most famous
- of all Irish spirits hang out
over there the leprechaun.

Normally, the "leps" con
fine their activity to mak

of shoes. But in
addition, they have charge
of the pot of gold at the
end of the rainbow and any
other money which might
be floating around. So, the
spot for them is in the of
fice of the chief money
handlers on campus.
