Salad Days in Offing For Agrarian-Inclined Proctor

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The radish being watered in the picture to the right is one of many that have mysteriously sprouted in the lawn plot between Wigglesworth and Grays Halls-Beans, carrots, lettuce, squash, ginnlas, marigolds, and sunflowers are also growing, along with the grass that the University has recently sown.

These vegetables were planted last month by residents of Wigglesworth Hall when workmen ploughed the ground in preparation for the new grass. Ever since then, the vegetables have been watered daily by University grasskeepers, who thought them grass. In a few weeks the proctor, self-appointed head-gardener, plans to open a produce stand "beside Leavitt and Peirce--for Summer School students."

Already some of the radishes have been eaten. In the opinion of the proctor they are "delicious and mellow." "I wish people would stop picking them, though," he added.

"We planted them for the proctor, who likes salads," the student-gardeners said.
