By MARY JO WOLF In New Orleans Wednesday, the wind was blowing, the snow was falling and—What? The snow was falling? Yes! Snow was falling! The snow was falling and the campus was rocking and rolling snowballs with the phenomenon. Students seemed to be snow bound in the quadrangle, on the library steps and in the horseshoe. With the cold, white flakes came shouts, cries and squeals of excitement from students seeing it for the first time. Shouts went up to call off classes, but when the news came that they would procede as usual, the shouts turned to Christmas carols. Classes were cut without a twinge of conscience and those few left uncut were cluttered with dripping people. (Dripping because of snowballs melting slowly in their pockets.) Windows were thrown open while people from below heaved up snowballs as fast as frozen hands would permit. A trip to Audubon park was a popular vote and to the park it was. Those who went by car kept in the spirit of things by decorating them with snowmen. Those going by foot managed to get enough snow on them to look like snow men themselves. Bobby Nicaud returned singing "Walking in a Winter Wonderland" at the top of his hoarse little voice, while Gee Gee Tormey, who "had enough snow to last her a whole lifetime," was found sitting in a snow-laden bush. Bobby Satterlc j, A&S sophomore, wasn't playing fair. After he and his pals had de-snowed the quadrangle, Bobby trudged over to the park with a big box, filled it with snowballs and started back. Fortunately, all of it did not get there. Along the way, he gaily left hats, girls, and sight-seeing buses with his calling card. "Slug" Harold was found thoughtfully mumbling in Van's. When asked the reason he replied slowly, "If it snows only once every 23 years, we'll be too old to enjoy it next time. Physics major Terry Dobbins claimed that it was the one day he would like to go to a heated class . . . shortly afterward he was happily floundering in the middle of a snowball fight. Meanwhile, back at the cafeteria, Ted Gallagher, A&S freshman, was showing off the snowman carried proudly on a tray. Comments given to the roving reporter . . . roving because she wanted to keep warm . . . about the weather were as follows: "Man, it's the craziest!" proclaimed iJmmy Lynn, dentistry junior.A Texan to the bitter end, Helen Gubbles, A&S froth, stoutly maintained that "it snows better in . . . (Guess where). "I'm so excited I don't'know what to do first!" exclaimed A&S frosh Dave Nessel. Not so excited were A&S frosh Judy Scat* and A&S soph Art Hill. Hailing from Connecticut, Judy sighed, "Not more snow!" Ditto Texan Art Hill who added, "I came here to get away from it and look what happens." The holiday spirit reigned high as did A&S frosh E. J. Fontan's voice as he happily sang, "I'm dreaming of a white Mardi Cm" on the library steps. "Really" was all wide-eyed Charlie Clark, BA frosh, could manage to say. Of a more blissful mature was Palmer Bleichner, BA soph, who exclaimed, "Now I can die happy." And as for this reporter . . . Pneumonia, anyone? GRRRR! AZALEA TIME ROTC Riflemen Meet Tomorrow The first annual invitational rifle match, co-sponsored by the Army ROTC units at Loyola and Tulane will be conducted tomorrow from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The elimination type match will be held at both the Loyola and Tulane rifle ranges.
