In a pious endeavor to prevent undergraduates entering or leaving college after hours, the Dean sur- rounded the college grounds with a double row of revolving spikes similar to those on the garden walls of Buckingham Palace. But even this precautionary measure could not daunt adventurous spir- its, and the Dean, when definite instances were reported, ignored them unless a climber became spiked in transit. Luckier ones he deemed to have earr.ed their free- dom. The unluckier spiked ad- venturers. however, were each fined 10s. a sum dispensed fay the worthy Deari on fixing to the spike con- cerned a silver ring with" the vic- tim's initials and date of impale- ment. In time the college fortifications became thickly adorned with these silver souvenirs, and one under- graduate was top scorer with such an array of them that the Dean. who had a nice sense of humor, allowed him every twelfth cue free. It is not surprising perhaps to know that the your.g gentleman in question is today a inuch benbbon- ed group captain.
