The statue of 'old Ben Franklin, placed on the campus as a memorial by the class of '70, was taken down this morning and it is a question whether or not it will ever be put back again. Said Secretary Wade: "The statue is simply a target for beer bottles. We fix it up, paint it up and in three or four days it is all stove in again. It has got to be a regular nuisance." "Will it be placedback onthe pedestal again?" "I don't know. There was" some talk a while ago ofkeeping it out of sight, I don't know what we will do with it, now. " .
