COVER
  There was a new and attractive look accompanying the
1957 delegation   of Brittingham  scholarship recipients.
Shown in this Gary Schulz photograph with President Fred
on Lincoln Terrace are Anne Marie Jiorklund and Betty
Bauer, both from Sweden, and Anita Elgh from Finland.
Designated International Scholars, they arrived on campus
with eight Viking scholars-all men from Norway, Sweden,
Denmark and Finland--to spend the 1957-58 school year.
For more Viking news, see page 27 of this issue.
IT WAS NO LIE
  An observant reader noticed a typographical error last
month which chopped forty years off the ninety-six-year-
old history of the Wisconsin Alumni Association. He was
reassured by John Berge that the amputation was uninten-
tional: "Even a woman stops fibbing about her age when
she gets that close to 100 years old."
DAD ASHARD DIES
  A man familiar to Wisconsin students for more than
30 years, William E. (Dad) Ashard, who sold hot dogs,
popcorn and soft drinks both at his refreshment stand
at Lake and Langdon streets and at Camp Randall athletic
events, died on September 19, shortly before the first
football game of 1957 was scheduled and as a new gen-
eration of students began climbing the Hill. Hundreds
of former students were once his employees on the sport-
ing scene.
