Just A Thought
By Dare Cniiounl
No giant undertakings today ... I'm still worn out
from riding on top of the Phi Delt pyramid. The first f
heat was the worst Thanks to Doug Moore's bobbing
head, I now have a shattered left kidney.
Speaking of the Greek Week games, the award for
the most determined participant has to go to Luida Hal- f
lam, the Alpha Phi's winning tricycle rider. Never has a
coed shown so much determination. Especially during I
the last half of the race, when she was sprinting her tri-
cycle in reverse.
AU in all, Greek Week snowed a vast
improvement over previous attempts.
In fact Greek Weeks in the past were
almost nothing.
Most of the activities planned by
the IFC and PanheL mostly IFC, seem
ed to go over fairly welL The convoca
tion Wednesday night, although sparsely
attended, produced several thought
provoking ideas.
Greek Week on the University cam
pus certainly hasn't reached the point it
could, but with advances such as this
year's, tt could become one of the biggest weeks on cam-
Speaking of big weeks, there are several coming up
in the near future. - I
This week, of course, is the big one for the fellows
at the west end of the campus. From all indications, this
year's E-Week will be as great as ever. I
The following week marks the Spring Day,-Ivy Day g
weekend. Already, the juniors are starting to look wor-
ried. Several fellows I know went over to the Kappa Sig 1
house to buy the goat's still-new knee pads. Here's hop-
ing they bring you better luck than the former owner, e
Only one word from this corner on Spring Day and
the games. It seems rather stupid to hold the games en
Ag campus. Nothing against the Ag campus or any of the
students out there, but the transportation problem Is
going to be something.
This idea was proposed on the Student Council floor s
several weeks ago and ran into some opposition. It seems 5
that the planners feel that the space at Ag campus can
be used more effectively than that of the practice field
south of the Stadium. Perhaps this is so, but when com-
pared to the problems that will come with transportation,
the space problem should seem insignificant.
The comment "I'd walk over to the Stadium, but I s
wont ride out to Ag campus" has already been uttered
by many of the city residents. I
The whole problem was summed up during a Coun-
cQ session, when one of the opposing members said,
"Wouldn't it be easier to bring the cow (for one f the
contests) down to the city campus, than bring the major-
ily el the University students out to the Ag campus?"
If the transportation problem does become grave,
the A TO chariot runners have offered to transport some
of the city residents out to Ag campus.

mere statement of feeling

is an implied identity be

not expected to be always a

statement. The reader is
supposed to add to the
words his own associations

become a co-creator of his
own pleasure in the poem."
