Many Changes Made On UIU Campus -•- Muiiy More To Conic Many i in p r u ( v e m e n t s and rlianjjes can be seen on campus /I one take.s !he time to look. Tin' wire that warned students to "keep off the grass" around the driveway north of the cafeteria has been replaced by newer and much neater white posts. A "fume; hood" has been installed in Science Hall by Bud Gui'bee. It i.s designed to make some of the more odiferous experiments a little more pleasant. The device is fitted with a Ian which will draw the fumes upward into the hood and propel them outside via a ten inch pipe which rups up the side of the building. Mr. Gar-bee has also installed a new partition in the old cafeteria which is now being used as a band room. A new television set and an- ..enna have been installed in the •Peacock Lounge.

'For instance, we have an annual observance at UIU called "scrap day." This is an event held especially for you Freshmen. You see, the ruling is that your wear your 'hearr *' until Homecoming. Then, if UIU wins the Homecoming i,'ani''. yini are allowed to take ti.cin off. If, however, UIU should happ.'ii (,) K- unfortunate enough to lose the frame, you continue to wear your beanies until 'scrap day.' At that time the Freshmen are pitted against the Upper Classmen (supposedly only the •ophomores are allowed to compete, but the freshmen class is usually much larger than the second year collegiates class, so everyone winds tip defending the upper classmen) in a series of athletic contests. Featured among these contests is the tug-o-war which takes place at Klock's Island, the local city park. The. Freshmen are given one •iit.li' of the Volga River, and the Sophomores the other. A rope is trttched across the river and •he rest is very simple. Whoever pulls [heir opponent into the Volga wins the contest. At the conclusion of the activities a watermelon feed is served'by the student council. .Homecoming festivities constitute a major event at UIU mmialy. Candidates for tjueen .in- chosen by the various campus .irganizaiions and an election is liHd to determine who will be the queen. There is a dance after the homecoming game at which the queen and her attendants are honored. Rita Smith Rodgers was last year's queen and it will be she who crowns this year's queen. Another event in which the <.udcnt body takes part through an election is the Valentine'Cele- bration. Each year a Kirig and Queen of Hearts is selected by the student body, who vote for the candidates from various or- i;ani/ations. A dance is held in honor of the king and queen and during the intermission, the kicky couple is crowned. Another event that does fall specifically within the province of a particular organization, but which none-the-less deserves a special mention is the annual ' Vets Carnival.
