the Police Department is not exempt from To the individual who thought up the idea of organizing this com I Congradulate you and offer my Thank Irene Delgado Obsession with sports makes for inferior education To the editor Now comes our hallowed academicians with their weasel Modify the noplay we confidently await much more of the Why not face our alternatives Either we can continue to use all our educational facilities as prep schools for professional sports or we can enforce the spirit and letter of the If the perhaps one day our educational system may not rightly deserve the secondrate
