From the Archives: Having a Bit of Fun


December 9, 1982

Today, rather than present one article, we would like to present a collection of short, but interesting, snippets from the Collegian throughout the years. Included below are news briefs ranging in topic from a visit by General Westmoreland to a student injured while cleaning a gun.


General William Westmoreland will speak in Rosse Hall on Wednesday, Dec. 4 at 7:30pm. General Westmoreland was the Supreme Commander of the U.S. Forces during the Vietnam War. More recently, he was in the public eye when he sued CBS for libel concerning an hour news segment which accused him of lying to former President Lyndon Johnson. The lecture is co-sponsored by Faculty and Student Lectureships.

Do it tonight: Fools On The Hill

It's in this building. (via

This evening, the premier comedy group on campus, Fools on the Hill, will be performing in the impressive Philo Hall in Ascension. The Fools historically have had shows in ASC 220 and are bringing back the laughs to this academical space. (Ed. Although, I have shared a few laughs with Professor Baumann in Philo.) The Fools always attract a crowd, so arrive early to guarantee yourself a seat.

  • Where: Philo, ASC 220
  • When: 10:30 p.m. – 11:30 p.m.
