That's, what greeted the Arm of Honor fraternity from Eastern Michigan University last Tuesday night. Even though they were defeated in basketball, they-gained a decisive victory in dribbling. .„ The men dribbled a basketball 170 miles from Ypsilanti to Mt. Pleasant as publicity for their school, the game and their fraternity. They succeeded. They started Sunday night with "Frosty" Ferzacca, Eastern athletic director, handing the ball to Coach Jim Dutcher who gave it to the first representatives of the fraternity. The men left Ypsilanti and then followed county roads up to Mt. Pleasant. They could not dribble on the freeways because of laws prohibiting pedestrians" on the highways. When they reached Oil „City they. were met by news reporters and members of Phi Kappa Tau fraternity, Eric Wesley, Mt. Clemens sophomore and Bob Lloyd, Detroit sophomore.

Title III of the proposed ordinance is concerned with the case of the dual vacancy happening- again. It provides for an election of a new president pro tempore at the first meeting of Senate when a quorum is present. The ordinance further stipulates that upon his election the president pro tempore, would assume the position of acting vice president of the student body. If the ordinance is passed by Senate it will be sent to President Foust for his signature and its-incorporation into the Student Body constitution. Also tabled was a tentative definition of "faculty" drawn up by the Board. President Judson W. Foust commented that he would like to wait another month to get more reactions to the proposal.
