Working like dogs so we can come back in the Fall. My old readers may miss the fact that starting off the new year has brought a new title to the column once known as “Spy-Lines." I decided that the latter was too Juvenile for an upper classman besides I'm taking up a new policy. No more spying. From now on, I just walk right in. By the way, “Prospecting” infers I’m looking for the real gold—the honest - to - goodness stuff. May I add that I’m not adverse to a little ‘dirt’ now and then. Freshmen, please don't be insulted if I refrain from welcoming you to Oxy, or to reading "The Occidental," or any other phase of this new era in your careers.

It's a big job and Dennis has been working feverishly to find capable replacements and to ready them for tonight's tilt.
