Is these troubled times, when our most cherished traditions are being swept aside, the CRIMSON is proud to continue its time-honored practice of distracting you from those badly needed hours of cramming with a short quiz designed to test your knowledge of that dying genre of popular songs, the oldie but goodie. (Score yourself: 0-20 fair; 20-25, sort of good; 35-50, pretty good; 50-60, good; 60-70, real good; 71-75, goodest of all.) Student winners will receive a copy of "You Can't Sit Down," personally autographed by all the faculty members who were at that meeting in Paine Hall last month. Answers will appear next week.
