By Dick Stuckey
By the way, this is hell
remembering how that title
In our infinite source of
historical accumulae con
cerning the colledge; ah
whayout in the realm of
the pasdt of our skoul; and
deep in the bottom of a big
brown vanilla envelope,
we have discovered the ab
solute first invitation to a
"teea" ever sent at this
University by an organized
women's group to other
organized living groups in
order to bring everyone to-
gether at an organized nap
kin feed.
This discussion is actually
a supplement to last time's
discussion of whatever was
discussed. But today we
shall hear an on the spot
account of that first teea
by J. Lightwheat Topcoat,
representative to that same
Genesis of all teeas from

mittee. Topcoat has included in
his account an actual copy
of that first invitation, so
warmly received and so
beautifully engraved with
gold venneer trimming and
blue muslin backing and
green hornrimmed mas
cera. Here that invitation
is reprinted for all to glob
ber some over:

doing furthering the very

pletely unfounded and in
bad taste. Since the begin
ning of time, the spoils have
gone to the victors. And
the losers have gone to Ne
braska. Flower was absolutely
right for attempting to prod
the Mortar Boards along
this line. If the SATYR
thought the Broads might

Mortar Boards do to
satyrs) he'd be about mov

Council and the four mem
bers of the Ag Union Pro
gram Council. This Board
governs aQ activities of the
Union and makes regula
tions for efficient use of Un
ion faculties in keeping with
University standards and
student opinion.
As an agency concerned
with Uninversity activities,
the Board of Managers is
responsible for the Chancel
lor and the Board of Reg
ents. The Union Board ap
points a managing direc
tor, who under its supervi
sion, is responsible for car
rying out its policies and
hiring employees necessary
for the efficient operation of
the Union.
Besides meeting at a
regularly scheduled time
each month, the board
members serve on standing
committees. Faculty .alum
ni and students serve on Ex
ecutive, Personnel, House,
- Public Relations, aitd Room
Assignment Committees.
Only students serve on the
Program Councils.
The members of the
Board of Managers at all
times try to be sensative
to student opinion. The Un
ion was established for the
students, and it is the re
sponsibility of the Board of
Managers to see that the
Union serves the students.

Enough of the common

will turn to the pursuit of
intellectual pursuit. There
is this course oneampot
which receives almost no
recognition, and worse, no
- If you clods would like to
see real scholastism with
out the usual mickey
mouse encountered, real
scholastic freedom with
out the tedioum, a real prof
who knows his subject ma
terial without the aspiration
. to pedantry, I heartily sug
gest that you take Greek
Mythology 117. This course
is under the capable direc
tion of Dr. K. Aldrich who
is now in the process of
placing the finishing
touches on his own text for
the course.
That's the trouble with a
lot of good courses on this
campus. It the prof doesn't
crack funnies, give good
grades, buy coffee for stu
dents, and sponsor two ac
tivities, nobody takes a
class under him. People
stand on Cheer boxes and
bleat about better student
prof relationships and how
great it is to find out some
big fat truth. Well it is the
SATYR's earnest conten
tion that pearls are being
thrown to about eight stu
dents while the rest of the
eight thousand are worry
ing about electives, snaps,
and , working in love and
marriage before gradua
tion. I must be off to the
woods and watch for the
first daffodil or keg party
(so what's aesthetics).

cause there is a lack of

futile endeavor to revitalize

Freddy, "Show me first

Said the annoyed Greek in

And the Greek, feeling
that a departure from lyric
verse was now both timely
and worthwhile, because he
knew nothing about the
rhyme scheme, said,
"Gosh, Freddy, ol pal, ol
boy, ol chum, I'm sorry
but that is not what we
need this year."
"You mean boys without
pennies?" queried Freddy
in pretended amazement,
because he thought that he

mistaken, myths are also
related to this general

turn are related to the
Greeks, which of course
brings as logically to the
question of Greek Week.

logically to the termination
of this column. All I have
