Vol No. June 15, 1956 Berkeley Priceless f i Primary Election Coming Up Soon It will be a fight to the finish for sure, as the three candidates fight it out for the Presidential nomination. Ray Bres- sler still stands unopposed on one ticket, but the Crawfordists and Andersonists are bitterly fighting it out on the other. Senator Tony Horn who has become a great card player, suggested that the states be divided up and each candidate be given an equal amount. Senator Mike Roger, always practical, stated that perhaps the result would be a tie, but he was overruled. Then candidate Crawford accused candidate Anderson of illegally influencing the residents of his states. Anderson promptly fired back that he would not take such an insinuation without proof. The fight came to an open brawl when Crawford disclosed that he had his underground too. Anderson replied that that was a I blow below the belt. He then openly declared war on Crawford. Crawford told Anderson that this was unconsti- tutional and was backed by Mr. Knud- son. Anderson ignored the comment and told Crawford to name the weapons. Crawford chose jellybeans on roller skates at fort} - paces. Anderson accep- ted and the big day arrived. The jelly beans were lined up and both candidates i were warming up. All at once Supreme Court Judge Michael Tuft arrived and announced that the whole business was unconstitutional and besides all the peo- ple in New York were moving into Rhode Island. So Crawford and An- derson shook hands and postponed the duel till another day. FLASH! A Red Hot Exclusive By Linnie Bock The great Algebra Haters Club formed back in ' 56 is going to have a huge reunion at Miss Sue Wight ' s house. For many years now the mem- bers have been busily collecting all the algebra books in circulation. They have robbed the libraries, plundered the schools, and even robbed the Algebra Teachers ' Rest Home. At the reunion, a grand prize of an atttomatic cosmic ray pencil will be presented to the per- son who has collected the most books. We have heard rumors that John B. Richards and Margie Anderson have a very good chance. After the ceremony Ken Revzan will prepare a gigantic bonfire and Sylvia Le Page will light it. Then all the members will have a wild time throwing in the books and eating yami yogart and oatmeal mush topped with olives. There will be some special awards called a.- given to the best algebra haters for outstanding courage and bravery- Our underground secret serv- ice, the Worm Patrol. informs us that Sally George. Liz Wohletz, Rob Cassel- Vrry. and Fred Fitzgerald are to receive rewards. Famous Scientist Disproves Own Theory We are sorry to inform you that the discovery made by the noted scientist John GhiseUi has been disproved today, and by none other than the man him- self. Mr. Ghiselli had evolved a scheme whereby he could view the inhabitants of Mars with his powerful telescope. He described them as being a sort of blue-black all over with 6 legs and sev- eral pairs of beady red eyeballs. They were very clever, said Ghiselli, and they could walk up the side of a building quite easily. The scientist and his assistant. Win Wang, were both excited and spent almost two hours with the reporters, Richard Von Bargon, Mike Franc ' sco. Alexander Guthrie. A little later Mr. Ghiselli was cleaning his equipment and he was dis- mayed to find that there was a common black and on the end of the telescope, and he had just been looking at the and magnified umpteen times. The scientist is now in a state of mental shock and will spend a lot of time at the Happy Dale Sanitarium. Dr. Ralph Young says that Ghiselli ' s case is a rather acute one, but we are confident that he will recover. ADVICE TO LOVELORN BY MONI GATEWOOD Q. — I ' m going steady with the cap- tain of the football team but I ' m afraid he doesn ' t like me. He spends more time with his football than he does with me. — Betty Strathman A. — I suggest that since he is so disloy- al, you better break up with him. When you do, please let me know. Q. — My husband beats me everv night. What shall I do? — Lois Ulvang A. — Stop gambling with him. Q. — I ' m in love with the man up the street and the man down the street is in love with me, and my sister is in love with him. — Valerie Machek A. — Take an alka-seltzer. If that doesn ' t work, you ' ll have to commit suicide. OLYMPICS AT PAPOOSE GORGE 1976 Winter Olympics were held re- cently. They were a crowning success. The Russian ream, who were runners- up in the toboggan race, happily crowned the USA ' s team with their to- boggan. Wishing to be fair and square, the USA ' s team crowned them back. It was proposed that they shake hands af- terward, but as none of the team members was in condition to do so, it was post- poned. The team : Larry McDonough, Pat McLaughlin. Alexis erhoogen, Randv Cramer, will be spending a little time (about 9 months) in the hospital, but thev have nothing on the toboggan sleds. All that is left is a heap of splinters. This is most alarming because, said Prof. Ro- land Yourd today, We can ' t even tell which are Russian splinters and which are ours ! One of the most daring spectacular events was the ski jump in which Lin- nie Bock took first place. She said to- day that the reason for her exceptional speed was that she used to jump off Marin Ave. so as not to be late for school. When told that she has made a record of one minute flat, she remarked that she must be getting rusty: she could never have gotten upstairs before the second bell. The second skier out was really the most graceful. He soared way out over the slope, like a bird, remarked Charlene Akers. a bystander. Unfortunately, it was discovered that Miss Akers was right. Bill Ambrose ' s shoelace came untied and he tripped before he got out the gate. He was allowed another chance and had his other shoe lace not come untied, he might have won the cup. Bill has now enrolled for a course in shoe lace tying at the Garfield Xursery School. What Are You?
