Mr. Crutcher believes, "That all students will strive to cooperate with officials when they realize tho task which faces those endeavoring to serve ootn tne student body and the University. The University of Wisconsin does not allow parking on their campus, but It is not the aim of University officials here to exclude the automobile from this campus." It may be necessary in the near future to assign definite narklne space to every car which Is driven onto the campus regularly. Some space In front of the administration building must be reserved for he- hides brought to the campus by visitors ana ousmess men. Members of the faculty use their cars also as a means to reach their work and they likewise must have a convenient parking sriace. "Stu dents living in Lexington should not oring their cars to the camDus un less it is unavoidable.

Ho was taken to the university dispensary and given first-ai- d by Doctor Penny. Farrls fall was broken when his shoe caught In the rain spouting on the roof. He hune m mm-a- ir until the weight of his body pulled his foot from the snoe. Farrls would have fallen head-fir- st about 20 feet, but he hung in the air long enough to regain his balance and fall upon his arm and one side. Lady luck was with him when his shoe caught in the rain spouting, for without such good fortune Farrls would have probably sustained serious injuries. The "miracle" shoe still remain's in the rain spouting on the roof of the Armory, waiting in vain for someone with enough daring to rescue it.
