Subj:     Homespun Couple Visit Harvard President (S87)
          From: RFSlick on 98-09-27

 The President of Harvard made a mistake by prejudging people
 and it cost him dearly.  A lady in a faded gingham dress and
 her husband, dressed in a homespun threadbare suit, stepped
 off the train in Boston, and walked timidly without an
 appointment into the president's outer office.  The secretary
 could tell in a moment that such backwoods, country hicks had
 no business at Harvard and probably didn't even deserve to be
 in Cambridge.  She frowned.  "We want to see the president,"
 the man said softly.  "He'll be busy all day," the secretary
 snapped.  "We'll wait," the lady replied.  For hours, the
 secretary ignored them, hoping that the couple would finally
 become discouraged and go away.  They didn't.  The secretary
 grew frustrated and finally decided to disturb the president,
 even thought it was a chore she always regretted to do.
 "Maybe if they just see you for a few minutes, they'll leave,"
 she told him.  He sighed in exasperation and nodded.

 Someone of his importance obviously didn't have the time to
 spend with them.  He detested gingham dresses and homespun
 suits cluttering up his outer office.  The president, stern-
 faced with dignity, strutted toward the couple.  The lady
 told him, "We had a son that attended Harvard for one year.
 He loved Harvard.  He was happy here.  About a year ago, he
 was accidentally killed.  My husband and I would like to
 erect a memorial to him, somewhere on campus."  The president
 wasn't touched he was shocked.  "Madam," he said gruffly,
 "We can't put up a statue for every person who attended
 Harvard and died.  If we did, this place would look like a
 cemetery."  "Oh, no," the lady explained quickly, "We don't
 want to erect a statue.  We thought we would like to give a
 building to Harvard.  The president rolled his eyes.  He
 glanced at the gingham dress and homespun suit, then
 exclaimed, "A building!  Do you have any earthly idea how
 much a building costs?  We have over seven and a half
 million dollars in the physical plant at Harvard."

 For a moment the lady was silent.  The president was
 pleased.  He could get rid of them now.  And the lady
 turned to her husband and said quietly, "Is that all is
 costs to start a University?  Why don't we just start our
 own?"  Her husband nodded.  The president's face wilted
 in confusion and bewilderment.  Mr. and Mrs. Leland
 Stanford walked away, traveling to Palo Alto, California
 where they established the University that bears their
 name, a memorial to a son that Harvard no longer cared

Subj:     Goats On The Cal Poly Campus (S783)
          By Jim Harper

 "Proof that you can't underestimate the creativeness of this
 Canadian boy for mischief.  Considering all the brilliant,
 devious minds we had in college, I don't know how I was the
 first to do this.

 At Cal Poly San Luis Obisop, I played a prank by borrowing
 3 goats from the goat unit and let them loose on the campus.

 But before turning them loose, I painted numbers on the sides
 of the goats: 1, 2, and 4.  The School Administrators spent
 most of the day looking for No. 3."
