Sycamore at Robert from approved Culver to 'hail Caesar' minds" 6 ROME (UPI- Latter-day Romans may ignore the Ides of March but this March 15 an American military academy will pay homage to Julius Caesar hot far from the spot where he was assassinated more than 2,000 years ago. The homage, to Caesar is the brainchild of.Jrof. John Robs and his Latin class at Culver Military Academy in Culver, Ind. It will be executed in the form of a wreath laid by Peter Rossow, 18, a Culver graduate who is the_soh of U. S Embassy counselor Robert Rossow, Jr. Young Rossow, now attending the Rome branch of Chicago's Loyola University, studied Caesar's commentaries on the Gallic wars at Culver, as his diplomat father did before him and as Rocs' classes still do. Peter is a "great admirer of Caesar although he was slightly reluctant about a wreath - laying," the senior Rossow said. But the Rbssows are a loyal Culver family--Peter's grandfather, the lateCol.RobertRos- sow, was commandant of cadets at Culver -- and" Peter finally agreed to do the honors. His mother, Barbara Rossow, is out shopping for an appropri- ate wreath. "I gave her 10,000 lire which should get us something pretty impressive," her husband said.. Peter will deposit the wreath before a statue of Caesaronthe street of the imperial forums. The statue marks the entrance to the forum, of Julius Caesar. "We'd.have liked to placethe wreath where he was killed," said Rossow Senior. "Unfortunately it seems there's a restaurant there now." WANT ADS WORK WONDERS'
