It appears that Sal DiLeo had a good start on the Baron
Sundae for the All University Fund last Sunday. The
Baron, however, was the victor in the fight against eight
competitors at the Harpei -Schramm Smith cafeteria.
The Baron will stage another battle with hearty
appetites this Sunday. Any takers'
