Hood River Has
Hot Howdy'do
For Prexy Erh
As the old saying “from the
frying pan into the fire” goes,
so may students do well to make
the best of the current Univer
sity “heat wave.”
President Donald M. Erb left
the campus Wednesday to speak
at Hood River high school com
mencement exercises. The chances
at the time of his departure ap
peared at least 50-50 that he
would receive the relief from
“warmth” of the campus on the
“foreign visit.”
An unexpected “jolt” came yes
terday morning, however, when
weather reports announced that
Hood River was the hottest town
in the state for Wednesday. Dr.
Erb is expeced back to the “cool
ness” of the campus next week.
Today marks the end of the Em
erald’s year.
We’re sorry to find that the end
is so near.
We’ve batted our copy out day
after day.
The Emerald is part of our life
in a way.
So as we finish, this thought
makes us squirm:
What shall we do ’til the end of
the term?
—J. W. S.
