Some of his friends thought collecting a few of these stories in a little volume and presenting them to him, and to his many friends and associates throughout the University community, on his 90th birthday would be an excellent way to celebrate the occasion.

The Bloomington campus had been alerted by the Urbana-Champaign authoritieswho had been notified by the police at another midwestern university farther westto be on the lookout for a fellow who was making his way east from the plains states. His modus operandi was to force entry into a co-eds room and, instead of violently assaulting her, he would (simply) give her an enemaand leave. Much discussion resulted pertaining to some strategies the campus could use to prevent an incident here. HBW sat silent, untilwith that customary twinkle in his eyehe slowly said, . . .
