  STRINGS ATTACHED          (cover). UW   Director of Bands
Ray Dvorak is nothing if not a showman. This year, for the
band's between-semesters state tour, Ray borrowed an attrac-
tive bit of glamor from the UW Symphony orchestra. She is
Rose Mary Pedersen, our cover girl, photographed at an excit-
ing moment in her young musical career by George Richard
as she made her bow (pun intended) at Sauk City. For more
on the band's tour, see page 22.
  DO IT OUR WAY. For the Joint Finance Committee hear-
ing arguments on the UW biennial budget, a taxpayers group
representative had a suggestion. "Better have the Legislature
look into University policies." A few minutes later he com-
mended to committee members the official report of the Com-
mittee on University Policies, which the Legislature had corn-
mi-ssioned two years ago to do that very job.
   BUDGET-WISE. Two University representatives to a
Founders Day dinner had minor car trouble in a small city
near Madison last month, requiring a tow to a garage. They
asked how much they owed for the tow. Looking at the Uni-
versity insignia on the car, the garageman replied: "Let it go.
You guys are already having enough trouble with your budget."
   TELEVISED     LEGISLATORS. The UW's own experi-
mental television station, WHA-TV, scored a television "first"
recently in televising the Governor's biennial message to the
Legislature. The signals were microwaved from the Capitol to
Science Hall, then co-axial cabled to the TV laboratory at 600
North Park Street.
   THOUGHT FOR THIS MONTH. If an eight pound
human baby grew as fast as a modern broiler chick, he'd
weigh 256 pounds in ten weeks, according to a release from
the UW College of Agriculture.
