The fact that the plesiosaurian glide
is done to tango filled one teacher with
hope, tinco popularise the tango, she
?aid, and something artistic will have
been accomplished. Jazz dancing is
dying, the teacher continued, and the
tango will mark the passing of music
that suggests feeding time at the zoo
or lightning striking a hardware store.
Another teacher said that he wel?
comed the innovation, but that the
name probably would have to be
changed to tit the vocabulary of the
dancing public. When told of the
pl(;sio8'it rns's alleged love for prehis?
toric mud, the teacher suggested "mud
turtle glide."

sent Poly have not as yet been
picked. Those who ran on last year's
team, which took tlilrd place, were
!?'. Kraiscl, C. Krai-el, Nelson and Hor

man, a freshman, will succeed F.
Krai sei. In Poly's class this year there
will be some strong rivals, and victory
would give Poly the Technical College
mile relay championship.
