How times have changed - OK - so I was in college well over half century ago - I remember once at half-time entertainment at a football game, we had inter fraternity "outhouse" races - outhouses on wheels and occupants inside - I shot the starting pistol - a NFA registered .410 pistol no less - and the gun presence or firing it into the air with bird shot (no danger to any) - there was much more interest in the "racing" than the gun being fired inside the stadium - well, we all (of us, anyway) did occasional things we wouldn't do now.

While we're reminiscing, I have to point out, tuition was $75.00 per quarter - at what is one of the more expensive universities now - and "assistantships" - jobs on campus we could do without interfering with classes - that paid half tuition were always available - so the most my dad ever paid for my tuition was $37.50 my first 4 quarters - post WW II GI Bill and scholarships took me through pre-med and med school.

GOOD OLD DAYS

THOSE WERE THE DAYS !!!
