The day has passed when xi'iting newspaper columnists
from t tregon State can remark alwnit the -ea of mud •
rounding the Student Union, as one did several months aip*.
The fact that spring has sprung has never been so vividly
pictured as it was the other day when it was discovered that
the "gTass has rit.”
The arrival of the grass around the Student l nion came un
expectedly one morning when students found a '**rt oi mil

The big. balding Virginian—Matthew Bunker Ridgway—
has risen in approximately the last 100 days from relative ob
scurity to one of the most responsible positions in the world
as successor to MacArthur. The man to whom he turns over
his 8th army command Lt. Gen. James Alward Van I* Icet. has
a long and highly distinguished military past.

Known as a soldier’s soldier, many wonder how well he will
serve in his new post behind a desk in Tokyo. But he's handled
big jobs before and, moreover, he has a deep-seated military
background, having been born on a military reservation as the
son of an army colonel.
