Date Bait

Citation: Date Bait, (Fall 1959), p. 1.

Once upon a time, in the land of buckeyes and grindstones, there was chaos and confusion. Year after year this confusion was centered in the freshman students of an educational institution called Baldy-Waldy.

These freshman did not know who their classmates were, where they were from or where they were residing on the old campi. Each year the situation was worse than the previous year for the classes were becoming larger and larger and larger.

Several months later, in the wee hours of the morning, a few upper classmen perturbed by this distressing situation were discussing the problem. At that time an idea was born. The idea was to publish a book with the names, pictures, and addresses, of all of the new befuddled students to the campi. And so nurtured the idea of the DATE BAIT Book to what it is now.

Some of these are girls. Some of these are guys. This is all that this book can tell you. The rest is up to you. Got it?. . . . . . Get it.
