   COVER. Far removed from its former role in intercol-
 legiate sports, intramural athletics, student mob exhibitions
 and academic pursuits is the lower campus mall that links
 University and State Historical Society libraries. Broad paved
 walks outline sizable patches of green lawn and skirt
 flowers, bushes and small trees. The latest addition to this
 beauty is a fountain in its center, the gift of alumnus William
 J. Hagenah. On the inside rim of the fountain, which was
 dedicated during Commencement-Reunion Weekend, reads
 this inscription: "Teachers and books are the springs from
 which flow the waters of knowledge." It was on this rim that
 we posed Sam Ogle (left), Milwaukee, who is now the presi-
 dent of the Wisconsin Alumni Association, and Dr. John A.
 Keenan, who left the presidency to take over as chairman of
 the Association board. For more on Mr. Ogle, see a special
 article in this issue of the Alumnus. In the background is the
 Historical Society Library.
   ET TV, BRUTE. Communications researchers at the
UW and at Michigan State found that more people now hear
the news first on television (37 per cent), than on radio
(28 per cent), newspapers (18 per cent), or word of mouth
(17 per cent). Most turn to the newspaper for additional
or supplementary information.
  WET END. A burglar newly-arrived in Madison tried
to hold up a grocery store in the 600 block of State Street,
bungled the job, fled at high speed in his car, turned north
on dead end Lake street, shortly continued his flight on foot
after leaving his car in Lake Mendota.
