That was the kind of weather
that was supposed to be around
the campus all day Thursday. And
that was the kind that was around

of the officials called to find out
what she should do about the win

the path of the falling hail.
Looking a day ahead, the
Weather Bureau regretted that it
might have to forecast rain and
overcast for Saturday.
But cheer up. The bureau also
said that this would end and “we
will see blue sky again.”
After that we’ll have more
