Cover
   It's been apparent now for some time (apparent to the Engineers, that
is) that St. Pat was really an engi-
neer. He obviously couldn't have been a lawyer, or he never would have permitted
the act depicted on the cover
to occur. As you can see (we hope) the Law School, along with those in it,
is being driven into the ground by
the mighty arm of St. Pat. Just who St. Pat is, we aren't sure at press time,
but you can be sure he's more
than a match for the Law School's best.
