The purpose is to welcome back all of the old students and to extend to all of the new students a warm NMSU hello. This is done by including dances, pool parties, and concerts as part of the week long list of activities. This past year Thete Chi was proud to be able to bring Bloodstone and Mandrill in concert to NMSU. The week long festivities were concluded with the " Stampede 500 Go-Kart Race " , featuring in the past such skill as that of " Ma " Hubbard and President Thomas. In addition to the final day ' s activities is the " R- ed Ox Roast " where, this year, 200 pounds of beef was enjoyed by all who attended. 4. 26 •eA ' " l W i) I 27 EARTH, WIND, AND FIRE Earth, Wind, and Fire practically created just that at their smash performance held in Pan Am Center, November 14. Teamed up with the rock-and-roll group Law, the two got down to a rhythm bustin ' , foot stompin ' soul and jazz concert that you just couldn ' t keep seated for. Earth, Wind, and Fire ' s remarkable talent for getting the rock a rollin ' kept the aisles dancing and even the more timid could be seen keeping the beat with hands that just wouldn ' t stop clappin ' ! 28 29 FREDDY FENDER Baldermar Huerta whose " Tex-Mex Country Rock " promoted him to national recognition as " Freddy Fender " performed in a concert and dance at Pan Am Center. Along with his No. 1 country hit, " Before the Last Teardrop Falls, " Fender sang a variety of Mexican-folk favorites, nostalgia numbers and some Chicano versions of country classics. Accompanied by Don White and Deb- bie Campbell, the trio added up to an evening enjoyed three times over. 30 MANDRILL, BLOODSTONE As part of the Red Ox Day festivities, Mandrill and Bloodstone teamed up in concert at Pan American Center. Bloodstone, a progressive rhythm and-blues jazz group, comprised of four members boasted they played more than thirty instruments among them. Beginning as a high school group in Kansas City, the combo went on to receive a gold record for their current hit " Natural High. " Mandrill, a seven-man group, played a variety of rock, folk, Latin, soul, jazz and classical music. They described their music as " an experience not a definition. " And according to those attending the concert, it was cer- tainly an ' experience ' to remember. } 32 Km m ' ■ ' rr ■J •-. 33 ARMY BAND First in the series of NIVISU Bicentennial celebrations, the Army Jazz band presented a musical salute entitled Jazz: A Great American Heritage. The program illustrated the evolution of jazz and the different styles it has seen from the big bands to the present day jazz. Sergeant Major Dave Wolpe, director of the group, commented that because America has been such a con- stantly changing country, that this very quest for change and freedom of expression is what has kept jazz alive. And the music was nothing but that during the concert. 34 CONSTRUCTION WSE What would school be without the familiar sight of tractors, cement trucks and even cranes blocking off traf- fic to repair the roads, construct new parking lots and even a new pond and recreational area next to Alumni Avenue. At last the spring winds that annually blew a perpetual layer of dust down from Pan Am are subdued under the cement walkways and newly planted grass. Although inconvenient, the construction activities are bringing about many changes on campus. -■ ■ 35 ORMOND MCGILL An evening of magical marvels was presented in Corbett Center on October 1 as American Hypnotist, Or- mond McGill gave a free lecture-demonstration on hyp- nosis. The experience which he entitles " A Journey Around the Mysterious World of Mental Magic, " used several student volunteers whose initial reaction was a stunned " How ' d he do it? " Magic of course! Sponsored by ASNMSU, the demonstration included an exhibition of Hindu rope tricks, the Persian ring trick and other equally amazing feats of wonder. FIELD DAY Hold on tight! Quite an unusual way to spend a Saturday but according to members of the Army Cadet Core, quite an enjoyable one. On a sunny day, eighty volunteers came out to Soledad Canyon in the Organ Mountains to practice their skill at rock rapelling which is the process of getting down a mountain with the aid of one rope. The activity is offered by the ROTC as an extra enrichment program and also a good chance for prac- ticing this basic combat skill which is taught at summer camp. An interesting activity . . . provided you have strong fingers! 37 A-DAY Advertising for A-Day was a bit new this year. Above Corbett Center on a sunny Friday morning were a pair of huge, air-filled balloons resembling women ' s breast— " Like these mountains? Then go to the A " they in- vited. Aside from the sexist overtones, it did get some attention despite the insulted women ' s libbers, early Saturday morning a full-spirited, foolhardy group took to the hills and a good mornings work. Whitewash was mixed and splashed, cokes slurped and donuts consumed all with the background music provided by KNMS. We were even joined by the several big " birds " , as the Mesilla Valley Hanggliding Association demonstrated their flying abilities. And thus the NMSU tradition was revived as the new paint glistened and the rocks and playful students made sure no one left the mountain without a good water fight! 38 T. ' ' r " 39 AG DAY The annual Ag Day activities kicked off to its usual spirit of fun and frolic as agriculture students competed to see who could smoke the most cigars, drink milk the quickest, run the fastest (with only 3 legs) and even who could avoid a swim in the Ag pond itself. The yearly play day, sponsored by Ag Council was held October 10 and included fun and games such as these, followed by a bar- b-que and ice cream social to feed the large number of participants that turned out for the festivities. Concluding Ag Day was a western dance at Corbett Center where Sandy Lowe, representing Block and Bridle, was crowned Ag Queen. 40 HAIR Whether ticket cost or controversy over deleted parts of the play, the rock-musical Hair hosted a dissappoin- tingly small turnout of only 2,000 at the spacious Pan American Center October 7. Producer Jerry Mancus at first refused to cut a forty-five second nude scene, an obscene w ord and two songs, " Sodomy " and " Hashish. " But, according to contract, Hair suffered a " hair cut " and the hit broadway musical apparently w asn ' t a hit with NMSU students. ' ■i 1% t .k " S|njL| vr Wl ' ' ■ M . m k u Ill m !l wi 42 43 AGGIE RODEO Although perhaps not as well known as intramural basketball and swimming, there is such a thing as the in- tramural rodeo, which was held at the Lester Harrelson Memorial Arena. Men ' s events included bareback and saddle-bronc riding, calf roping, bull riding, steer wrestling and team roping. The women were offered competition in barrel racing, goat tying, and breakaway roping. The event was also sponsored by the Aggie Rodeo Association and about 60 brave bronc busters turned out to try their hand at their saddle staying abilities. 45 HOMECOMING Homecoming 75-Fun in the Sun-an unusual theme that included many traditional and nontraditional events. , ... For some it meant the dedication of the solar-heated and cooled New Mexico Department of Agriculture building, the largest facility of its kind in the nation. The event was attended by a crowd of 500 which included representatives from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Governor Jerry Apodaca. And tun in the fire? Barbara Hubbard, activities director, and Dr. Gerald Thomas, were abducted and threatened to be thrown in the spirit rally bonfire if their $500 ransom had not been met. Yet, never fear! Just in the nick of time an amazing ransom of $600 was collected by various sororities and fraternities for donation to the Epileptic Foundation of America in memory of the late John Portasik, an Aggie football star and member of ATO.

The sun symbol took on various meaning as shown by these ZTA " sunflowers " , the WRC sunburst float and even a little spirit (spirits?) incentive to our dear ol ' Aggie team. Whether marching down Solano or the " bandwagon " approach, Fun in the Sun meant anything that was enjoyed under that blue October sky. 48 49 M Although not quite National T.V. sportscasting, the Homecoming game offered a variety of entertainment in- cluding the solemn ritual of renewing the ol ' Aggie Spirit, Majorette routines, and even Senior Gloriette Thompson showing the crowd how she gets into the swing of things. A if- ■ ' 51 For the Aggies, fun in the sun meant hoping that it would glare just enough in their opponent ' s faces to insure a sunny outcome for the game. Whether solar or just plain spirit and skill, the Aggies did manage to outshine the University of Texas at Arlington Mavericks, 16-0 in a shutout victory at Memorial Stadium. With the only touchdown being made by Bill Bowerman and Stanley Sam, Freshman Skipper Vernon raised the points by three field goals to insure a stronger lead for the Ags. And that sure gave Aggie griders and one of their biggest fans. Ma Hubbard something to stand up and shout about. 52 .-««-?

The joint concert was sponsered by ASNMSU. Fleetwood Mac, a British soft rock group features Mick Fleetwood on drums and percussion; John McVie on bass; Christine McVie, pianist-vocalist; Steve Nicks on guitar; and Linsey Buckingham, vocalist. The group has been well known in the United States for several years and is now based in Los Angeles. Also out of the Los Angeles area, Jiva presented a new blend of the sounds of the sixties with their own original style in rock and roll and soul. The combined per- formance these two talents gave rock lovers their moneys worth and an unusual listening experience in rock and roll itself. 56 57 CAPT. AND TENNILLE The pop record singing team who cut the national hit, " Love Will Keep Us Together, " was featured in concert at the Pam Am Center during NMSU Homecoming festivities. Also appearing with Capt. and Tennille, was modern jazz pianist Ramsey Lewis. The Captain, Daryl Dragon and his wife, Toni Tennille share a fairy tale success story. Two years ago they cut the record, " The Way I Want to Touch You " which became a legend in Los Angeles and a top-ten seller. After signing with A M Records the couple has gone on to produce and write several ol the songs appearing on their first ab- bum. The concert featured a lively combination of original music and of course the two hits which made their success possible. Tennille was featured as vocalist and pianist while the Captain arranged and performed the in- strumental accompaniment. S8 59 INTRAMURALS Hey come on! Get that ball! Frequent cries as these are heard from the intramural field on sunny afternoons as various teams battle it out to be picked for the final cham- pionship game. Intramural sports ranging from touch football to soccer constitute a main source of athletic par- ticipation on campus. Aside from regular intercollegiate sports, intramurals provide the opportunity for men and women to participate competitively yet Informally in organized team sports. oO A f ' L -J 61 FOLKLORICO On September 24, a forty member music-and-dance group from Mexico filled Pan Am Center with music and native dances characteristic of the various Mexican cultural regions. Designed to depict 1,000 years of Mex- ican history, the performers in colorful native attire, danc- ed to a variety of mariachi, marimba, and jarocho rhythms. Quite a fiesta of talent and cultural awareness as well. 67 63 ALICE DOESN ' T DAY Various women speakers including Sharon Clark Swanberg, Round Up columnist and Sandra Rigby, per- sonnel director at NMSU outlined their views on the women ' s movement to a crowd of 150 students in front of Corbett Center. The " Alice Doesn ' t Day " rally, sponsered by AWS, was part of a nationwide strike by the National Organization for Women in which all women were asked to refuse their " womanly duties " for the day. The protest was to bring about a greater awareness of the woman in society today and how much she is needed in traditional as well as non-traditional walks of life. Swanberg termed the liberation movement as a civil right, social and economic change while Rigby gave examples of the unfair employment criteria for woman and minorities on the NMSU campus. Betty Eshbaugh, a social worker con- ducted several " awareness " exercises, to help people realize the ways women have been discriminated against. 64 SANDRA RIGBY And the Rigby Rights continue. Sandra Rigby, former NMSU personnel director terminated on December 31, 1975, claims she " directly observed and personnally ex- perienced unethical employment practices at NMSU. " Ms. Rigby was released from her duties the day after her speech at the Alice Doesn ' t Day Rally due to her " lack of management capability, general incompatability and in- ability to communicate effectively with employees of the personnel office and the university administration. " The Rigby case poses serious questions as to what power the administration has over those who seek to dis- sent against it. 6S TH ETA GAMMA In this dull, lustless world most often described as " everyday " , exists a small secret (ignored?) group dedicated to the preservation of wild life. The members of this group, known to the outside world only as " those guys " spend their every waking moment pondering strange thoughts and planning unusual happenings. Why, you ask? What motivates these powerful minds to apply themselves to these ends? The answer lies in the faces of those who witness these events. A smile, a laugh, a look of surprise or even a thought of " that ' s dumb " is the greatest reward. With these goals in mind the stalwart men of Theta Gamma planned, produced and put on the second annual St. Valentines Day Music Massacre and Magic Act. They hope someone liked it. p.s. Theta Gamma is also beholden ' to their auxiliary group the TG " old ladies " for their many talents. 66 a HARE KRISHNA An unfamiliar sight on the NMSU campus were the bald headed followers of Hare Krishna. The group of ten, originally brought in to talk to a Sociology class, also took this as an opportunity to stay three days and enlighten students on campus to shed materialistic pursuits and try to purify themselves through spiritual awareness. Wandering about campus in loose fitting white pants and T-shirts these believers sold books and incense to aid their cause which they call the Vidie Cultural Exposition. The members of this organization travel around the US stopping at various towns and Universities to preach a better way of living. 68 i 49 PLANT SALES Green thumb? Every potential Plant Mother got a chance to be fulfilled by attending the Hort Forum plant sales and clinics held throughout the year. The plant sales, which are sponsored by the Hort Forum are held weekly in room 156 of the Agriculture Building. They offer a large variety of indoor as well as some bedding plants which are donated by local greenhouses and growers. Members of the forum are also on hand to help identify, answer questions or even give suggestions on how to cure an ailing plant. The plant sales are a great opportunity to add to one ' s garden or even start one! 70 i CVi Ails V J 71 WHEEL CHAIR BASKETBALL Guard ' em! Take it away! Probably one of the most in- teresting basketball tournaments ever held at Pan Am Center The games initiated a week of activities designed to promote awareness of the problems facing han- dicapped students on the NMSU campus. 72 73 UNIVERSITY SYMPHONY Works by American composers, including the world premiere of a composition by NMSU music professor Warner Hutchison, was featured in a Bicentennial Concert by the University Civic Orchestra in Corbett Center. Soloists for the event included NMSU faculty members Gayle Treakle, soprano, and Sam Trimble on trumpet. The orchestra conductor was Marianna Gabbi. 74 ' if 75 RECREATION Things never looked so relaxing as the Milton Hall Recreation room after its redecoration in the fall. Just the place to forget all those homework worries and spend some carefree hours with a cue stick, foosball, pinball machines, or just sittin ' and watching everyone go by. 74 77 . Rsi-rat 78 ;li :«® ai 79 BELLY DANCING Can so much shake at once? It did up in the Garcia Rec. Room, as students of Soraya presented a demonstration of the art and techniques of bellydancing. Soraya, which is her dancing name, teaches a bellydan- cing class through the nontraditional course program offered at NMSU. Sponsored by the Garcia Programming Committee, the audience of 300 students were shown that bellydan- cing is not just in the shake but rather in the agility and gracefulness of the dancer herself. Bellydancing is a demanding dance form that requires much creative in- novation and flexibility as well as practice; it is not just swinging one ' s hips. ■0 DICK GREGORY " Social Problems: Social or Antisocial " was the topic of Dick Gregory ' s talk as he addressed an audience in Corbett Center on Monday, Feb. 23 as part of the annual Black Week activities. Gregory, a lecturor, actor, human- rights activist, social satirist, critic, philosopher and political analyst, spoke to a near-capacity crow d about the many problems facing America today. " The very fate of this nation depends on our young people, " Gregory said. " The sad thing is there aren ' t anymore tricks to fool other people with, except for our own. " s .- 8) r.-. CLARK TERRY The world famous jazz musician, Clark Terry, was featured in concert with the New Mexico State Lab band on March 3 in the Corbett Center ballrooms. Terry, a veteran brass player of the name bands, per- formed with Lionel Hampton, Eddie Vinson, and Count Basie. He played a variety of contemporary music, some sentimental numbers and even a preview of what he con- siders jazz will be in the future. A jazz clinic was also conducted before the concert. As Terry put it, " Working with kids is so much more rewarding than strictly performing. " And he lives up to that philosophy by conducting more than 60 high school and college jazz clinics across the nation each year. Quite an instructive evening . . . and enjoyable as well. 82 •3 GREEK WEEK Greek Week activities which began on Mon- day, April 5 with a torch-lighting ceremony con- cluded on Friday with the annual Regatta, an in- nertube race down the Rio Grande. In between there was " Greek Sing, " a choral presentation put on by all the sororities and fraternities, speakers, a civic project for the Las Cruces Boy ' s Club and " Greek Games, " a series of fun- tilled frolics and competitions. Just how many can pile on a mattress?? The purpose of Greek Week is to unite all Greeks In a week filled with events that will be entertaining, enlightening and bring all organizations closer in understanding. B6 y GREEK WEEK IS . Great Galloping Grubby Good Times! I- fiSii x_ •7 SIDEWALK CIRCUS o It was an exciting act all around (including the bear ' s) as members of the Royal Lichtens- tein Quarter-Ring Sidewalk Circus entertained students on the International Mall on Wednes- day Nov. 12. Quite a lunch break! 88 •9 SIDEWALK THEATRE A version of open air theatre? Act One of Servant of Two Masters was presented April 7 to an informal audience that viewed the play staged on the International Mall in front of Corbett Center. The play was sponsored by Alpha Psi Omega, the national drama honorary. 90 ' U »1 DONALD BYRD Fusing pop. rhythm, blues, rock and jazz into a dis- tinctive blend, Donald Byrd and his five-man combo provided an evening of musical entertainment at Pan Am. Byrd, a noted educator who also is one of the coun- try ' s foremost jazz musicians was brought to NMSU as part of the Black Week activities. Byrd is an expert on Afro-American music, its history and culture. Along with his lecture tours on the subject, the Blackbyrds have made concert appearances coast to coast. Their recent album Flying Start topped the charts in three categories— pop, soul and jazz. Quite an evening for those who enjoy music that never loses the beat. 92 NEIL DIAMOND Adjectives like " fantastic " and " fabulous " seem only appropos in describing the two-hour, three encore Neil Diamond concert in Pan Am Center on April 1 . Performing for a crowd of more than 11,000 persons. Diamond ex- hibited the rare ability of holding a crowds attention whether it be during " Cracklin ' Rose " or an excerpt from Jonathan Livingston Seagull. Diamond Is one of the few showmen that has an amazing versatility of talent and also sense of showmanship that really still cares about the audience he performs for. »♦.■? ..W;- X I 95 1 1 f-.- i - • X S B Sol r M N l L. ...a 1 97 OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN Have you never been mellow? If you haven ' t, Olivia Newton-John is just the one to get you that way as she enchanted a sell out crowd at the Pan Am Center on March 28. The winner of seven gold records and two platinum awards, Newton-John was also the first female vocalist to score three successive No. 1 records on the top pop charts. Her stage presence and charisma captivated the audience as she performed such hits as " Let Me Be There, " " I Honestly Love You " and " Please Mister Please " . The applause was enthusiastic and very well-earned. ' ' - t m 99 PAUL WILLIAMS One person that always wrote the songs but never performed them, reversed roles and took the spotlight as backup to the Olivia Newton-John concert. Paul Williams who has written for such big name singers as The Carpenters, Three Dog Night and Helen Reddy, sang some of the hits that made these people famous. " Family Affair, " " Lonely Hearts, " " Here Comes Inspiration " , " If We Could Still Be Friends " , and " A Little Bit a Love " were just some of the well-known favorites that this talented composer-singer entertained the crowd with. 100 101 SPRING BLOW OFF A mini-Woodstock? One would think so with the lined up carloads of fun loving beer drinkers that rode, walked or even bicycled to the second annual Spring Blowoff held May 1. An estimated 7,500 persons attended the event which featured 68 containers of " liquid refreshment. REO Speedwagon blasted out the sounds and the sun provided the good time atmosphere condusive to relaxing in the grass and forgetting about school for a few careless hours. t - jiri-. j--: i: U, ' . i9S 102 103 104 105 It ' s frisbee throwing time again skateboarding down tlie International Mall and lounging afternoons on the Corbett Center lawn outdoor concerts (I should be studying) It ' s intramural softball joggers and sunny hours of poolside leisure (But I ' ve got a test tomorrow) It ' s cool, dusky evenings and who cares about the test!

Held at the Lester Harrelson Memorial Arena, outstanding performances were made by Sid Morrow, Albert Lyon, Steve Harper, and Jennifer Haynes. Other festivities in- cluded this year ' s NMSU Rodeo Queen Sharlene Harris turning her duties over to the newly crowned Nancy Lee, a Sophmore majoring in Animal Science. I OB 109 110 -■ -- % - ■ -im, I GRADUATION Quite a bicentennial flair this year as over 650 graduates ceremoniously filed into Pan American Center with their red, white and blue tassles swinging from their caps. The 83rd annual New Mexico State Commencement on May 15, 1976 was marked with the usual array of teary mothers, proud dads, aunts, uncles, brothers, and sisters all busily snapping their cameras for those unforgettable memories of graduation day. For the grads themselves, sitting solumnly through the endless list of names, came mingled feelings of relief, pride and even the finnest tinge of sentiment. In the truest sense of the word, graduation meant mov- ing on to a different challenge . . . with a couple of wistful backward glances. 112 STAGE BAND CONCERT 113 SPORTS FOOTBALL Aggie football 75 held hopes of being NMSU ' s first winning season since Warren Woodson ' s 1967 squad compiled a 7-2-1 record. Opening at home on a cold rainy night, the Aggies rewarded 12,645 drenched fans with a 14-10 victory over the Drake Bulldogs. They followed up that triumph with two more, a come-back, 31-24 victory over rival UTEP in El Paso and a 17-14 win over the Lamar Cards in Beau- mont, Texas. Then came the Ragin ' Cajuns of SW Louisiana and the end of the Aggies ' early success. NMSU was trounced 31-7. A spectacular end-zone catch by talented Duriel Harris in the fourth quarter gave Ags their only touchdown. The Aggies ended their season with a 5-6 season record. 116 117 SCORES NMSU 14 Drake 10 31 UTEP 24 17 Lamar 14 7 SWLa. 35 7 Tulsa 35 26 Wichita 24 3 San Diego 48 16 Tx. Arl. 10 Wst.

Led by Senior guard, John DiBiase NMSU made an average 15.1 assists per game. Individual Aggies also produced stand-out performances. DiBiase ' s 262 assists gave him a record and the field goal shooting accuracy of Russell Letz, 53.7%, gave him the top mark in that category. Senior Bill Allen established himself as one of the top players in the Missouri Valley Conference. Allen garnered a place for himself in the Aggie record book with 1,018 points to his credit over his four year stay at NMSU. Under first-year coach Ken Hayes, the Aggies finished fifth in the Valley with a 4-8 conference record. )22 123 124 125 SCORES NMSU 102 Texas-Arlington 84 129 Houston Baptist 97 49 UTEP 47 62 UTEP 54 70 UNM 85 82 UNM 68 87 Southern Meth. 94 104 Denver 100 75 Nebraska 79 90 Brigham Young 79 72 Baylor 75 61 Wichita State 70 72 Drake 79 68 Southern III. 70 59 West Texas St. 61 91 Bradley 85 70 Wichita State 78 104 Sul Ross State 84 66 West Texas St. 68 101 Angelo State 87 97 Univ. of Tulsa 94 114 Eastern NM 98 99 Bradley Univ. 93 105 Drake Univ. 99 83 Univ. of Tulsa 86 125 Hardin-Simmons 102 103 Southern III. 92 126 127 138 i r ' 129 BASEBALL The NMSU Diamondmen, now 15-24 finished their season with a pair of doubleheaders against New Mexico Highlands University. Hopes for a winning season flew over the backstop when the baseball team was beaten the previous weekend in three straight games against the University of Northern Arizona Lumberjacks. There will not be any post-season play for NMSU because the Missouri Valley Conference baseball championships have been cancelled due to only four teams being entered in the tournament. A - 130 131 GIRLS VOLLEYBALL The Roadrunner Volleyball team is one of eight best in the country in United States Volleyball Association (USVBA) play. It proved just that by whopping the Dallas Volleyball Club 15-7 and 15-9 May 1 in Midland. Dallas had won its regional and was playing the Roadrunners for one of the eight seeds at the national tourney May 1 8 through May 22 in Schenectady, New York. The women also played a practice round against the U.S. national team while in Midland, and won one game 15-10. J -r J7 133 COACH KEN HAYES Ken Hayes is new to Aggieland but at winning he ' s strictly an old hand. Having coached for 19 years and never having field- ed anything but a winner, the 42-year old Hayes heads up a program that ' s familiar with his trademark. The aggies, who have been to the NCAA tournament six of the last nine years, and Hayes, who has a 308-126 overall career record, are hardly strangers when it comes to winning. As head coach at Missouri Valley Conference for Tulsa for the past seven years, Hayes moved to NMSU to succeed Lou Henson, but if it was Henson who laid the foundation of success at NMSU, it ' s Hayes who looks to build it to new heights. n 134 )CKV.

Funded by ASNMSU, the Round Up ' s major change for 1975-76 was the utilization of its own typesetting equipment. The equipment has made deadlines for late- breaking stories more flexible, saved money and involved students in more of the producation process. The intrepid staff of almost 50 (some of whom oc- casionally showed up for work) diligently spent the year muckracking, writing, snapping pictures, typesetting, sell- ing ads, laying out and a pasting up pages, investigating, interviewing and printing " all the news that fits.
