IN THE HOSPITAL Mrs. Larry Farley is a patient at the West Union hospital Each year we vow that next year we will get an early start on this college edition of the Fayette Leader. And each year something happens to put us farther behind But we're going to take the same pledge again this year and hope to get started a month early in 1963. In spite of everything, we got the last run off the press on time, Wednesday, and didn't even miss our mailing. And for this we would like to offer a word of thanks to all who helped on this issue. M. H. "Sodie" Alderson, public relations director of the university, was a life-saver again, with reams and reams of copy. We'd say that the university gets plenty of public relatin' from this man . . . and we're sure they realize it and appreciate him. In the mechanical end we were lucky to have several friends on neighboring newspapers who didn't mind putting in a few extra hours to help us over the hump. And our own staff worked nearly around the clock the last few days to see that the job was well done. To all of these people we offer a great big THANKS ... and now we're going home to bed and sleep for a week. Dean of women Miss Helen Tuttle will begin her sceond year at UIU this fall as dean of women. She will also teach several classes in English. Miss Tuttle was originally affiliated with the University from 1957 | to 1960 as an assistant professor of English, then resigned to teach a' year at Redondo Beach, California. She returned to the UIU campus last fall. A graduate of McCune, Kansas, high school. Miss Tuttle received her B. S. degree from Kansas State College in 1954 and her M.S. from the same institution in 1955. She has done advanced degree work at the University of Mississippi. Wilson C.

Gill, who is former registrar, is now serving the institution as dean of men and as the Alumni professor of history and political science. He is also the head resident coun­ sellor at the Maltbie - McCosh hall for men. Affiliated with U.I.U. in 1947, Gill holds both the B.A. and M.A. degrees. New school year exciting For faculty and students The beginning of a new school year is one of the most fascinating and exciting experience that an administrator or a student can have. Since the opening of Upper Iowa University for the fall term of 1952, my first at Upper Iowa, to this fall, I find that each year the excitment builds and builds. Anticipating the return of faculty and staff colleagues and the meeting of new teachers and new staff members and the thought that each may become the greatest personality connected with Upper Iowa is always ah interesting experience. Meeting the students who have been on the campus for one, two, or three, cr more years, and then becoming acquainted with the freshmen and new students again builds the excitment Looking forward to the completion of new buildings and to other additions to the physical plant and the anticipating the many, many, many happy relationships brought about by the new families causes one to sincerely and humbly thank the Creator of the Universe for, the privilege of being associated with a college group. Thus, I come to the welcome for each one of you, and say to you that one of the great privileges of being at Upper Iowa is the privilege of wishing you well and trusting that this year will be the year of the richest experiences that you have thus far enjoyed and EUGENE GARBEE that building on the experiences of this year, next year, and the years to come may be more fruitful and more meaningful for each one of you. I bid you welcome to Upper Iowa University and to the Fayette Community, and hope that you will learn to love this beautiful Northeast Iowa section, its people, and its institutions as those of us, who have lived and worked here love it With warm, personal regards, I am E. E. Garbee Creek Bottom Comments — By Reuben Onoe again we shall offer some not-too-serious college comments. Away back in the early 1920s, an U. I. U. student (now holding an important job in Clayton County) and his U. I. U. buddy were going Mrs. Lois L. Bradley, B.A., special assistant in English and psychology, joined the University in 1960. Miss Helen J. Monserud, B.A., B.S., M.A., William Larrabee associate professor of sociology, joined the University in 194*. M. H. Alderson, B.A., Director of Public Relations, special lecturer in journalism, joined the University in 1960. Roger B. Bowen, B.S., Registrar, former alumni executive secretary, joined the University in 1956, Upper Iowa graduate, class of 1955. out one fine spring afternoon to do- some "high power" rifle shooting. An inquisitive co-ed asked them what they were going to hunt? The one fellow, a young married man, said he was going to shoot a mess of robins for supper. The co-ed took him seriously, and t clobbered up a tempest-in-a-teapot. She said that if he did such a TERRIBLE thing as that she would tell the (U. L U.) President, tell the sheriff, tell the game warden, tell everybody. In that same "era" there was a professor who was famous (?) for his long dry sermons, when he preached the gospel as a sideline. One day he announced that he would preach on a certain day (at the old U. I. U. Chapel). The Chapel pulpit had been set aside, and a table placed before it. The reaching professor made the foolish mistake of saying that the Chapel stage would have to be re-arranged, concluding, "I can't preach without a pulpit". The thought flashed thru the mind of the above mentioned student, (who said be was going to shoot the robins for supper) "professor, if you can't preach without a pulpit, we won't have to hear your d— dry sermon." The pulpit wasn't found for some time. This fellow commented, "the place to hide something, is to put it where anybody can see, but nobody looks." There was a makeshift "men's room" in the basement of the old Science Hall. There was an electric bulb, without any shade, on a dropcord, just back from the basement stairway steps. Everybody going down dropped their head, looked down, so the light wouldn't glare in their eyes. The pulpit was "hidden" by putting it on two-by- fours, just above and back of this electric light It wasn't "found" for about six week. To meet this fellow now, a very serious man in his mid-sixties, you would never think he was, forty years ago, such an able master of the practical joke. "Extra-curricular activities" can still be interesting to those who have the initiative.
