Spring rushing- has been af

“Due to the present war sit

cil decided this week to dispense
with the special rush-week-end ov
rush-week usually held spring

"This is really not a drastio

Not for Ashes/
Says Bo us hey
Have you been puzzled by the
recent appearance of sand buck
jets in the corridors?
Well, they will be used for
smothering- incendiary bombs and
should be kept in good condition
just as any other piece of fire
fighting equipment. Prof. E. E.
Boushey, head of the campus
firemen, warns that, in order to
be effective, the sand must be
absolutely dry and free of com
bustible material. So please don't
drop cigarette butts, waste paper,
or anything else in the buckets.
It might be dangerous.
