Beth Lake Joins Astro Workshop Amazed but excited was the reaction of Marybeth Lake when she found she had been accepted in the Astro-Science Workshop, a course open to students of the greater Chicago area who have demonstrated a special ability and interest in astronomy and the related sciences. The program, under the auspices of the National Science Foundation, conducted a battery of tests and interviews in their search for 50 select students interested in astronomy. The students will meet every Saturday morning during the school year at the Adler Planetarium. Through the lab sessions conducted at each meeting, they will be introduced to and will dicsover astronomical problems and relationships. The other half of each session will be open for round table discussions, enabling each student to talk with nationally known astronomers. Field trips are also made to observatories and research centers. Under his own guidance, each student will undertake a research project and upon completion, present a short paper.

Begin Constructing Little Maine South' Maine South has contributed $1000, through tfte Brotherhood Society project of bricks, to bricks, to build a "Little Maine South" in the west central portion of India. The Oxford School Service Club of Hartford, Connecticut, contributed $88. Twenty-five years ago the village of Rajaluadi did not exist. The farmers lived in the village of Sillad and walked to their fields every day. As the village grew, the farmers found it more convenient to live on their land instead of in Sillad. A community was formed about two miles from Sillad, and it became the present village of Rajaluadi. The people of Rajaluadi, India, are either shepherds or farmers. Rajaluadi is located in the Ghat region of Western India. The population is about 400, living within about 90 houses. Agriculture is the main source of income, and the farmers raise mostly sorgum and vegetables. Goats, calves, and buffalo are herded. The vUlage is located about one-half mile from a national highway that connects the city of Awangabad to the Ajanta canen, which is only twenty miles north of Rajaluadi. Compared to most villages in India, Rajaluadi is strikingly different. It is a well-planned village although small, and the houses cover an area in a quadrangular shape. During the rainy season from June to September, the road connecting Rajaluadi with Sillad and the main road is more often washed out, making it impossible for the motorized vehicles to pass. The people themselves own no motorized vehicles, so it really offers only a small amount of discomfort. The people of Rajaluadi speak the language Marathi. At present approximately forty chil-

dren from the village attend the village school. It is a one-room building donated, rent free, by Sitaram Go Daji. It is dark, lacking adequate light and ventilation, and it is much to small for even an enrollment of onehalf the present size. Rajaluadi is a growing community. It has not been able to build a schoolhouse for its citizens because the farmers are poor, and the farms are actually a few acres per family. The farmers are able to grow adequate food to feed the family, but can rarely grow enough for extra money. Donald Schatzberg, Peace Corps volunteer, explains in his letter about Rajaluadi, to Mr.

to Rajaluadi to show the people where they are getting their school budding from. Contact Mr. Ken Faulhaber, Brotherhood faculty sponsor, or Ty Sigmund '69, Brotherhood president, for further information on sending materials on Maine South and Park Ridge to India.

Ken Faulhaber, Brotherhood Sponsor, "When the village leaders heard I was going around the villages to find a suitable place for an SPD project, they didn't even wait for me to come to their village." "They came to me and asked me to come and see their village," he continued. "I went the next day and was met by villagers with such enthusiasm as I had not seen in the many other villages I had been to. "They explained that although they were poor, they wanted a school enough to go to great lengths to get it." However, the village needed money to build the foundation. The men explained that they

would get rocks from a quarry on the other side of the mountain. Men began volunteering their oxcarts for transportation. Litaran Go Daji was unanimously elected coordinator of the work. "He is a young man greatly concerned with the community," said Mr. Schatzberg. "He owns probably the largest amount of land. He is the one who approached me in the first place." "The village needs a symbol of accomplishment, a greater sense of pride in their community," stated Mr. Schatzberg in his letter. This village will set an example for all other small, surrounding villages, an ideal village with a good system of sanitation also. The day after the two-room schoolhouse is finished, there will be two teachers. The village expects an enrollment of eighty to one hundred pupils in the primary school. Children will come not only from Rajaluadi, but from neighboring villages. The school is expected to be completed in June if all goes according to plans. The men of the village will also use the new building as a meeting house at night. The Peace Corps volunteer requests that any materials from and about Maine South be sent

At the Honors Assembly the Society will also present a Thespian Scholarship. Each one of the 84 initiates to the Thespians had earned ten points in dramatic productions as a prerequisite to membership. One point represents a minimum of ten hours work on a production. Each production task is assigned a maximum number of points with no production exceeding ten points. Sponsors of Thespians keep a record of each participant's accomplishments. Once a student has become a Thespian, he receives a star award for each ten points earned. After earning four stars or fifty points, the student is elevated to the position of Honor Thespian. Dick Heron received his one hundred tenth point after four years on Maine South Productions. Dick has taken part in every dramatic production presented at this school since it opened. Howard Keenan. Carla Oleck, Guy Riddle, Fred Sasser, Kurt Steinhauser, Karen Waldmann, and John Wittenmeier were elevated to the position of Honor Thespians with sixty or more points, the highest award Thespian Society can present. Special citations were presented to head custodian Raleigh Klipstein and custodian Sig Jenson for cooperation and help in the year's productions.

Mother Duck Returns, Raises S in Art Court Maine South is once more proud to announce the birth of baby ducks in the art court. On May 15, nine little ducks hatched in the nest outside the window of Mrs. Clausen, secretary for Dr. Watson. For three years in a row now, the art court has been turned into a maternity ward. Mrs. Clausen thinks this duck is the same one that came two years ago. because these ducks used the same nest, while the one last year made a new one. The ducks this year will be banded for the first time, so that they will be recognizable if they come back again. The ducks will be kept for

Department Award Girls' Physical Ed Katherine Fullerton

about two months, until they can take care of themselves. When they are ready to leave, the custodians will lead them through the buEding and out the , front door where they will be able to join the drake in the front pond. One unhatched egg still remains in the nest. Editors note: Since the writing of this story one of the ducklings drowned in their small pool. Littlest of the group, this one had come to near disaster the previous day but was rescued by Mr. Barker and nursed . back to seeming health by Mrs. Tillmans, the switchboard operator.

Dave Flannagan Dave Flannagan has played Varsity tennis for three seasons, and this year has attained the number one position in singles. He has been a keyman on past varsities which have set a tradition of winning conference honors each season for Maine. At his first singles spot, Dave has compiled a winning record v/hile facing some of the toughest competition in the state. His competition includes the number one and two singles champions for niinois. Against Glenbrook South, Dave was within two points of beating Tom Snyder, v/ho is also very highly rated. In state district competition, Dave helped the team to take the tough District trophy, but failed to qualify for state since he and Chris Hanson were beaten out in a semi-finals doubles match. The same thing happened to him in last year's competition. Dave has made many achievements in tennis here at South and has the ability to do well in future tennis competition. Paul Riis This year marked the culmination of an excellent school career in gymnastics for Paul Riis. Paul has performed well on the high bar for his last two years of varsity competition which ended with a fifth place stale finish this year. This years gymnasts won conference honors under Coach Riccitelli, and Paul played a major role in the victory with a second place conference finish. Surprisingly, Paul was only able to take a seventh in Districts before taking bis fifth in state competition. His finish in the conference in his Junior year was third. In the Thornridge Invitational, in which Paul took fifth place on the high bar, many of the finer teams in the state were represented. This consistent showing on Paul's part was a big reason that he was elected most valuable player this year by his teammates. Andy Huebner Andy Huebner '68 was voted Most Valuable Player by his teammates at the end of this year's fencing season. In the downstate competition, Andy fenced his way to being the tenth best fencer in the state. There are only 10 fencers in Illinois that Andy has never beaten. Throughout the year, Andy was first on the team. He led the team to a record of 8 wins & 4 losses and 2 ties, and contributed to Maine's seventh place finish in the slate. Out of 72 matches, Andy won 55 and lost only 17. Other team members were Dave Littell '70, Larry Lykowski, '68 Dave Hicks '69, Fred Henshaw '69, and Gary Jochim '68. The team was coached by Miss Karen Kenyon. Dave Larson Pitching was about the only strong point on our basebaU teamt his year, and so Southwords passed up several respectable hitters and bestowed the most valuable award on ace hurler Dave Larson. Finishing out the year with a bruised leg and a sore-arm, Larson nevertheless puUed up with a great earned-run average of 1.01. Unfortunately, Dave received little support at the plate, so consequently, his final record looked something like 4-3, not to mention several fine performances which do not show up in the win-loss column. In perhaps his finest effort, Dave pitched 14 innings while giving up only three hits, and in that time, he gave up only one hit in the first thirteen frames. He was finally lifted for a pinch-hitter in the fourteenth, and the Hawks went on

to lose 6 to 3. Statistic-wise, Dave made seven starts, finishing three, two of which were losses. He pitched 61 2/3 innings, giving up twenty-eight hits and nine earned runs, while striking out sixty-six. Mike Masoncnp When he was on his game, which was very often, he had the prettiest and most effective shot on the team, and so to add to the fact that he was already named team most valuable and all-conference, Mike Masoncup is Southword's choice for senior cage most valuable. This hot-shooting guard was third in team scoring behind Gary Lange and Dave Butz with 272 points, and when he was hot, he was something to watch. From his guard spot, he had possibly the best soft-shot in the conference. In one game against Niles North, he popped in five in a row from the same place, and would probably have broken twenty easily had he not fouled out early in the third quarter. His finest moment came, however, in the Waukegan sectional game when everyone on the floor was ice-cold. The game was as close as any played all season, and Waukegan even pulled ahead for awhile in the third quarter, and they possibly would have won had not Masoncup, shooting at a 58 per cent clip, put fifteen pwints, eleven in the second half to keep the Hawks in the lead for good. Les Mathews Senior Les Matthews, returning letterman of the Maine South Varsity golf team, has consistently played outstanding golf throughout this entire season. Les has been a member of the Varsity team for four years in a row. Earlier in the season Coach Louis Gartner stated that Matthews is one of the finest golfers in the state. Last Saturday Les proved this to be a fact by playing a spectacular game to gain the twelfth place position in State. Les has been playing in the 70s all season, an excellent score for high school competition. Les has been the lowest scorer, or medalist, in the majority of meets which the Hawks have participated in this year. Les also participated in State competition last year and shot a terrific round to take an eighth place with an exceptional score of 156. Matthews was hot in this year's meet also with a fine score of 160. Matthews has been the one strong factor which has held the team together and enabled it to go as far as it has this year and last. Frank McCullough Frank McCullough is Southword's choice for the honor of outstanding senior swimmer. Part of the McCullough dynasty in Maine South swimming, Frank is a four-year letterman in the sport. Frank has been selected by the team as most valuable in both his sophomore and junior years. This year, Frank scored the second highest number of points on the team. Also, he has received AU-American honors since his sophomore year in the 100 yd. backstroke, and was part of the slate champion medley relay team his junior year, in addition to being stale champ in the backstroke. In addition, Frank is a twoyear letterman in golf, and was a leader for Maine South in the recent stale golf meet. Dave Miller Dave Miller was co-selection for outstanding senior wrestler along with Jeff Rehder, as both men had almost identical records. Ihis year, Dave wrestled in

the 165 pound division, chalking up a fine record of 15 wins and 7 losses. Individual honors won by Dave this year include a third place in the Ridgewood Invitational Tournament, a first place in the Glenbrook South Tournament, a first in the Forest View Quadrangular, and a third in the district meet. Dave also was a football letterman in his senior year, play- . ing offensive guard and defensive linebacker. Jeff Rehder Jeff Rehder, the other co-selection is a two-year letterman in wrestling, having seen action in the 112 pound class and 120 pound class in the last year. He had established a fine win-loss record of 16 and 7. Among other things, Jeff won a second • place finish in the Ridgewood Invitational Tournament, a third in the Glenbrook South Tournament, and first place in districts. Jeff was also selected to the honorable mention conference team this year. In addition to wrestling, Jeff lettered in football during his senior year. Jim Sherman Jim Sherman is this year's choice for most outstanding senior in cross country. Jim, throughout most of this year's season, was the Hawk's number one runner. However, contrasting to the number one man of other teams, Jim's role consisted of consistantly leading a small group of Maine's harriers in outscoring the individual stars of the other teams. These consistant efforts on the part of Jim were in no small way responsible for the Hawks' imdefeated record in dual meets. In addition to leading the cross country team, Jim was also the fine distance man for the Hawk track team, lettering in his junior and senior years. Tom Spotts Tom Spotts, in what should be no great surprise, kicks off Southwords' list of senior most ' valuable players by unanimously taking the football award. For Tom, it is just another award, tacked on to a list already made quite long, as he has already received team MVP, along with all-conference, aU-area, all-state, and player of the year classifications. Playing halfback, he easily • took the conference scoring championship with a total of 102 points which was 54 more than Jim Schmitz, a split-end here at South who was second. In 201 carries, he gained 1364 yards, a feat right there in itself. Tom showed fine versitality on the field, running well in the open field as well as off the line. He even took a pass for a score in one game. He was most exciting, however, in Maine's Green Baytype power-sweep in which he took a hand-off or a pitch-out . and after picking up the fine blocks which the Hawk line consistently provided, he would force his way into the open despite the utmost efforts of the opposition to stop him. Chris Zei Chris Zei is Southwords' choice for outstanding senior on this year's track team. A three-year letterman in ' track, this year Chris leads the team in scoring with 184 points, far more than his closest competitor. Chris has been particularly outstanding in the dash events, taking firsts in all of them "in some meets. He was also usually the anchor man in Maine's fine 880 yd. relay team. In the 220 yd. dash Chris placed second in districts this year, and made it to the semifinals of the state meet. Displaying versitility, Chris even accumulated points in the pole vault in the indoor season.

Dave Butz Sets New State Discus Record

Maine South's Hall of Fame has existed as long as the school has, but only this year have the pictures of those qualifying for this honor appeared on the wall above the trophy case. Since then, a small population explosion has taken place. In the fall of this year, both Tom Spotts and Dave Butz were named to all-state teams by the press, but on top of that, Spotts was chosen as player of the year. Number 24 is on display there now. Following that, junior Tom Neuses became a state champion through elimination tournaments, as he took the 133 pound class crown in the state wrestling meet. Now another face has met the requirements for display in the Hall of Fame — junior Dave Butz. Dave achieved this last Saturday as he shattered the state record in the discus throw by over three and a half feet. Dave began his attack on the mark of 176 feet 8V4 inches of Ed Rogers of Bloomington in tlie Maine East Relays, when he

broke the meet record by posting a distance of 166 feet 4 inches. The following Tuesday in South's first home meet, Dave broke his own personal record by throwing 170 feet 2 inches. That Saturday, Dave broke his owTi record again in the district meet with two throws around 176 feet, one only a half an inch from the current state mark. However, he was still beaten in the finals when Arlington's Tom Chandler set an unofficial state record with a throw of 178 feet 6 inches. This left it up to his performance in the state meet, and Dave rose to the challenge by getting his record throw in the preliminaries, and adding several other excellent throws, but the amazing distance of 180 feet 4 inches stood as the new state record. Dave also saw action a week ago in the conference triangular with Niles West and New Trier West, in which he took firsts in discus with an "average" throw of 170 feet 11 inches and in shot put, which he won with a 47

Netmen Hold on to Slim Second Place at Finish As of the end of the dual meet competition, which ended last week, the tennis team was holding onto a slim second place standing. The team has lost two conference meets this season, both of them being 2-3 scores against Glenbrook South and New Trier West. These results come as a surprise when considering the outstanding potential and talent which this team had. Although the record is impressive, a sweep of the conference meets was expected. Except for the two losses, all of South's scores were shutouts and a 4-1 decision over the Warriors of Maine West. The brightest spot of the season for the Hawks was their district victory over many fine teams. Despite this victory, none of the players qualified to go down state. This situation had never occured in state competition before. For the second year, Dave Flanagan and Mike Masoncup have led the team in the singles positions. Both have done a fine job this year, with good records despite many bad breaks. Bob Shannon has done an excellent job at third singles, as

have Don Lathrop and Chris Hanson at first doubles. Roy Martino and Jim Kruetzer have accumulated many victories at second doubles. All of these players have been on the varsity for two years, six of them being lettermen. Both the varsity and sophomores will be trying to lake conference in the conference meet, which could not be covered due to printing deadlines. With a change of luck this could be done on both levels.

of 10:07.5 and 10:12.2. Jim Benda took another second in the high hurdles in a time of 15.6, while Bob Spicer finished fifth in 18.2. Senior Chris Zei and junior Al Burgess finished fourth and fifth respectively in the 100 yrd. dash in times of 10.5 and 10.7. Junior Mike Strelka took another second in the 880 yd. run, being edged out by a tenth of a second at a 2:03.0 time. Sophomore Bob Cesario took a fourth in this event. The 880 yd. relay team, Bill Schuessler, Ralph Murdy, Bruce Zintz, and Chris Zei, took a sec-

The only firsts for Maine besides those taken by Dave were taken by junior Jim Benda in the low hurdles in a time of 20.9 and by the mile relay team of senior John Rubeo and juniors Ralph Murdy, Mike Strelka, and Jim Benda. Superior depth, however, paid off for the Hawks, as they took eight seconds and five thirds. Sophomore Jim Cole and senior Pat Mountain took second and third in an extremely fast two mile rim with respective times

Unlike the Niles North game in which Coach VanProyen played only juniors and second stringers since nothing was at stake, the big boys were in there, and for the first timeein a while, the big bats responded. Henry Perez and Doug Sarcia both broke out of long slumps, each going two for three. For Perez, it was extra-sweet as his batting average had

The Maine South Varsity golf team participated in the State golf championship held at the University of Illinois Savoy course and did exceptionally well. The meet was held last Friday and Saturday afternoons. The team itself took the twelfth place position in State thanks to outstanding performances by all five team members. The number one position on the team is held by Les Matthews '68, who shot an excellent 36hole score of 160. The next position is held by Frank McCullough, '68, who also was exceptional with a 161. The remaining members of the team are seniors Rick Sanford who shot a 167, and Scott Standa and Dave Miller who each shot a 168. Matthews and McCullough, who have been outstanding golfers all season, made spectacular showings in the State competition and managed twelfth and eighteenth place positions respectively. Last week the Hawks also won

a conference meet by defeating Niles North, but they lost to New Trier West by the score of 310 to 320. This makes the Hawk's season record 5 wins and 2 losses in dual meets. The New Trier meet was the last of the season for the Hawks. Matthews was again the medalist of the meet with a commendable score of 73. On Friday, May 10, the Hawks won the privilege to participate in the State meet by defeating thirteen other schools, including Evanston, Niles North, and Maine East in the District finals held at the Chevy Chase Country Club. Matthews was again the hero as he shot a low 77 for Maine. Next Tuesday the Hawks will finish up their season by challenging all the teams in the conference for the conference championship. Coach Gartner, who is generally pleased with the teams' progress this year, has high hopes for his Hawks in this meet.

Nyren Leaves To Become Coach at Brown Coach Marvin Nyren has resigned his position to become offensive line coach at Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, next year. Dr. Clyde K. Watson announced this week. Coach Nyren, a Maine graduate, has been head football coach at South since the school opened in 1964. "I hate to leave South," said Coach Nyren, "I've enjoyed my coaching here and have enjoyed working with the fine young men of this community. But I want to see if I can meet the chal-

lenge of college coaching. This first move as an assistant will give me a chance to learn and to try my skills." Coach Nyren's new position is an 11 month job combining coaching and recuriting high school graduates from the Chicago area. "Brown University is just beginning a rebuilding process in football. Head coach Lynn Jardone feels we are two to three years away from a top competition team," Nyren said. Brown University competes in

Diamondmen Close Out Season A most disappointing baseball season came to a close last Wednesday as the diamondmen finished the year just over.500 with a 10-9-1 mark. The year did, however, end on somewhat of a joyfull note, as the Hawks, coming off a two game losing skid, beat New Trier West 8 to 3, bringing Maine's conference record up to .500 with a 7-7 mark, good for a fourth place tie. Those eight runs represent the biggest number the Hawks have scored in one game this year, and the ten hits they knocked out in the process has not been topped all season but has been equalled once.

ond, finishing at 1:35.0. Senior John Rubeo was the only Hawk to place ni the 440 yd. dash, taking a fifth in 54.5. Junior John Zipparro and sophomore Mike Murzyn finished second and third in the mile run with times of 4:46.3 and 4:49.3. After the conclusion of all of the field events and running events, the Hawks and Niles West were tied, with only the mile relay remaining. South's team, John Rubeo, Ralph Murdy, Mike Strelka, and Jim Benda, came up with an excellent performance to win in a 3:30.9 time.

dropped all the way down to 0.98, as of one point, he went hitless in six straight games. Junior John Gawaluck kept right on slugging away as he has in the last two weeks, knocking out two in three innings. It boosted his average to .375 after twenty-four official trips which is high for the team. Recapping the season, it was a most disappointing season, as the Hawks slid from state contenders to a .500 ball club. Lack of alert play hurt the Hawks all season long, as poor base running and sloppy fielding took its toll on the loss column. Every now and then, it seemed as though the team would start to roll, but every lime another poor game would wipe out the spark. Looking forward to next year, several fine prospects will be around returning from this years campaing. John Gawaluck will return with his big stick, while Ralph Remus will be a fine mound threat. Remus finished out this season with a 5-2 record and an

excellent earned-run average of 0.79. Other names such as Mike Lange, Doug Sarcia, Mike Venson, Curt Cade could well fill the other positions.

the Ivy League, and has the same high academic standards as the other Ivy League schools. Dr. Watson praised Coach Nyren's contribution to South saying, "Marv Nyren is a leader in his field. He is not only a good coach but is also a fine leader of young men. He has the complete respect of his students. We feel his leaving is a distinct loss to the school. He will be difficult to replace. He has set a tradition of winning football for the school, and we hope it can continue." Athletic Director Olan K. Wislon commented, "Marv Nyren has done a good job and we obviously hate to lose him, but we wish him every possible success at Brown University and in his future." Coach Nyren graduated from Maine East in 1953. He attended and graduated from the Uni versity of Michigan. He stayed

one year at Michigan as a graduate assistant in coaching. He came to Maine West as assistant to Ken Olsen in 1959. Coming to Maine South as Head coach in 1964, Coach Nyren teams have compiled a winning record of 21 wins, 9 losses, and 2 ties in four years.

Mafejzel Has Top Average at Illinois

Close action f r o m South and Maine West game. Hawks finished season at 10 and 9 m a r k , and fourth place in conference.

The latest bit of news floating in from the U. of I. down at Urbana has Auggie Matejzel, the hot hitting, great fielding shortstop of two years ago, leading the Big Ten with a .405 batting average. Auggie, one of two sophomores to make the team, has banged out fifteen hits in thirtyfive trips. In case there is any doubt, this is the same Matejzel who collected five hits in ten official trips to the plate to lead Maine South in the state tournament two years ago.

Co-Fac Project Is New Success One of Student Council's newest and most successful projects is the student Council and faculty discussions, Co-Fac. These meetings are held on a monthly basis, every period of the day. Six students and six faculty members meet in the Home Ec lounge with a very informal atmosphere. The purpose of Co-Fac discussions is to provide the teachers with an opportunity to bring out their ideas. Some of the discussions so far have included ideas on dress code, student privileges, the function, of Student Council, homeroom reports, and the relationship between students and teachers. Teachers at these meetings have suggested simple things that council might never have thought of alone. The students present at CoFac discussions report all suggestions to student council. A list of ideas is being prepared to be presented as motions and discussion early next year. Three sessions were held this year under the supervision of Mary Kemer. Next year the supervision position will be the task of SC vice-president, Jean Paige, The meetings are planned to remain informal and all teachers eventually will be invited.

On Saturday, June 8 the polls will open at 9 a.m. for voting on the referendum to increase the Educational fund tax levy ceiling for Maine Township High Schools. The polls will stay open until 7 p.m. Any citizen over 21 years of age who has lived in Illinois one year. Cook County for 90 days, and in Maine Township for 30 days, and is registered voter is eligible to vote. Renters, as well as home owners, are eligible if they meet the above requirements. This increase of 21-cents will help to meet the costs of an ever-increasing student popula-

tion. "The money we're asking for on June 8 is to increase the revenue coming into our educational fund" explained Dr. Richard Short, Superintendent of the 3 Maine schools. "It will provide extra dollars by which we can meet the increasing costs of salaries, reference books and teaching material." The funds will be going to this entire cirriculum, plaimed to meet the needs of all youth; a very low dropout rate; a number of fine scholarships; and an adult evening school, to name a few. The 21-cents will accomplish many things. It will keep the teachers salaries competitive.

II will provide the teachers needed for growing enrollments. It will save the interest on tax warrants. It will provide the necessary supplies, equipment and services for a growing school system and help prevent increasing the indebtedness of the Educational Fund. The children can not wait. More teachers are required for increasing enrollments. If this increase is not granted the estimated deficit of the Fund by June 30, 1968 will be $1,500,000. This interest will have to be paid by borrowing more money on tax.
