Dreams of Pigger's Staff
Haunted by Illegible Names
By Marge Elliott
Names, names, names! Stu
dents on the Pigger’s Guide staff
literally dream about names, and
have nightmares about the ones
that werent written legibly.

directory, carries just about every
little thing that a student needs
to know. Telephone numbers are
listed for offices, living organiza

to remedy the situation. First
they check with the student’s
other registration cards to see if
they can decipher any of them.
Tf this (ioesn’t do the trick, they
simply spend many hours of their
week at the telephone.
Then it’s a matter of putting
all the names in alphabetical ord
er. After this they wait for the
names to come hack from the print
er’s to be checked. Finally the print
er checks the corrections and all is
Meanwhile the business side is

They each contribute special skills and abil

In the extremely competitive oil business,
it takes a lot of people—working with many
expensive tools—to bring you good products
at reasonable prices. For crude oil is a bulky,
sticky liquid that's hard to handle. Taking oil
from the ground, refining it, transporting it
and pumping it into your car or oil burner is
a continuous job... a job that can be done
most efficiently when many people pool many
talents within a coordinated organization.
That’s why thousands of hands work at
