The fence, constructed in 1833, had become the focus of Yale life, the inspiration of community living, where the poor boy and the rich boy sat side by side - the scholar, the fraternity man, the athlete, the foreigner. It was the symbol of Yale democracy, and it had added dimension to college - from solely an institution of learning to a way of life. Through the years it had become the custom for each class to occupy a particular section of the fence (the freshmen receiving a tailend section in the spring only if they defeated the Harvard freshmen in baseball). Glee clubs met and sang at the fence, class "rush" battles were staged there and varsity captains annually mounted the top rung- and posed for yearbook pictures. ' When the fence was moved inside the quadrangle in 1889, despite the protests, class cer-monies continued but with diminishing spirit. And years later, when the fence came down altogether, a few sections were saved as mementos. One of thenri now stands in the basement of Ray Tompkins house, the athletic administration building, in a make shift photography studio where captains continue to sit and pose for yearbook pictures. Amos Alonzo Stagg, dressed in his white letter sweater with the blue Y, posed on that fence - Walter Camp, Larry Kelley, Ted Coy, Clint Frank, THE BETTER HALF By Barnes 8 5- . Ann Landers Brian Dowling, Don Shollander, Diane Straus. Diane Straus? There was quite a fuss made of that. "All in good humor, of course," said Yale's Athletic Director, Delaney Kiphuth. "Some of the alumni sighed and said, 'a woman on the fence? Is nothing sacred anymore?' You know, women never even walked across the old campus in the old days, much less sat on the Fence." Diane Straus, a psychology major from New York, was captain of Yale's first women's varsity team (tennis) in 1972 and became the first woman to have her picture taken on the fence. Her father, Peter, had sat there as a team captain in the 40's. Three other women, Lawrie (CQ) Mifflin and Sandy Morse (field hockey co - captains), and Margaret Mercer, the squash captain, followed Miss Straus on the fence. "I was aware of the tradition," said Miss Straus, now an assistant to the managing editor of New York Magazine. "I was excited but I remember there were some problems too. I'm short and my feet wouldn't reach the floor, and there was the problem of logistics - sitting so you couldn't see up my skirt." Miss Straus and the photographer decided on a side - angle pose, thus establishing the style for women to follow. "More than just being the first women on the fence," said Miss Mifflin, from Stroudsburg, PA., who is now a general assignment reporter for the New York Daily News. "We felt really proud. We had worked hard to get to that point. When I first came to Yale it was astonishing to the men that we would want to play ball, have equipment and a coach. Dear Ann Landers: I did a dumb thing and I could kick myself. For my 15th birthday, my grandmother gave me ten dollars so I could go to a doctor and have my ears pierced. Well, last year, my girl friend pierced her own ears with ice cubes and a needle and she offered to do mine for nothing. I let her, and she put the holes too far down. If I don't wear earrings, will the holes close up? Can I then have my ears pierced by a real doctor? Or will those first holes always be there? - Dumb Doris Dear Doris: A doctor can make the new holes immediately. The old ones will close in time. Dear Ann Landers: With all your contacts, surely you can find some help for us. Our 16-year-old son is a problem. He refuses to admit it. He rejects all efforts to get' him to a counsellor. He says, 'Everything is just fine." , Outside the home he is bright, outgoing, charming and downright attractive. The minute he walks through the door he's a different person - sullen, . disrespectful, uncooperative, selfish, inconsiderate, hateful and mean. We have evidence that he is breaking the law. I won't go into detail but what he is doing could have serious reper- cussions. He considers the law regarding such activities stupid and refuses to listen � when we tell him he could get into serious trouble. This boy is making our lives a living hell. There is no peace of mind from day to day. He laughs when we warn him to keep within the law. He says we are squares and that he can handle his own life. We need help and we need it now. Please, Ann, guide us. - Desperate Parents Dear Parents: It's only a guess, but r suspect your son is smoking pot. This might sound loony to you, but I suggest that you and your husband go for counselling and learn how. to handle your anxieties about the boy. It may be that your over-reacting may be compelling him to defy you. Ask your family doctor to recommend a counselor, or the county or state mental health society can help you.
