At the present time the area consists of a staff parking lot and a large land area not yet developed. By next summer this area will be a large arboretum extending all the way down to seventh east. According to Wendell Morse, campus planner, the garden will only take half of the parking space in that area. To compensate for this an equal number of staff stalls will be provided in the area where. the old Smart Gymnsasium is presently being torn down. Mostly native said. The area sixth north, will typical revenes in

Because sixth north can no longer be used, Darwin avenue will be widened and straightened where necessary to allow traffic in the ce nter of the cam pus. This part of the pr oject should be done before fall quarter begins, to allow for the heavy school traffi c. The parking area as well as the walks and the spr inklers should also be completed at this time. Planting and landscaping will most likely be left until next sp ring, Morse said.

Listen, Plain we'renot smallthinkers May we as members and officers of the Ogden, utah, USU Quarterback Club congratulate you on your appointment as head basketball mentor at Utah State University. We hope that your future will be a very successful one. For years it has been our hope that the administration would think "Big" in all phases of athletics at Logan. It is too bad there are some individuals who still look at "Aggie-land" as a family project. It has been our desire to see excellence in the athletic program. Ten years ago one would never think that utah State would have such teams as Army, Kentucky, Nebraska, Oklahome, Texas, Memphis State, Kansas State, etc., on our football schedule. This has happened. Now we have a chance to go first class in basketball. LaDell Anderson has been tremendous, and now with your background, we can see Utah State climbing to greater heights . Please don't think those few «small thinkers" are a majority. We can assure you that the overwhelming majority are with us when we say: Congratulations, Coach Plain, and let us support you in any way we can -- to make utah State University the great school we know it to be.

BearLake

Geologist researches pollutio A Utah State University graduate student, with the help of the NaUonal Science Foundation, has set out to determine the pollution situation at Bear Lake. Rich Fulle r , a geology major, said that he is about half-way through with his research. Thus far, he and his 10-man crew have found that although Bear Lake ls not tremendously pollutted now there will be a problem If development continues. A 1,200-house development with beach houses and a marina Is scheduled to begin development in the near future. Also planned are two other developments with 500 houses in each Fuller said. HOW PEOPLE FEEL

"We are attempting to find out how the people feel about pollution, what they are willing to do about it and what they think are the causes of the pollution," Fuller stated. He met with about 300 people Saturday night who are residents of the area and summer home owners to show slides ot what he has found at the lake. Fuller's staff uses an Infra-red camera which

At the present time, two of Fuller's staff members are working on determining the bacteria pol lution in the lake, another two are studying the water quality and others are doing some polling. PLEASED WITH PUBLIC

Fuller said that he Is pleased and surprised at the public response to the program. Fuller was appointed as head of the project last March when a $14,100 grant was given to the USU for use in this area . Another $3,000 was donated to the project by Utah State University. "We are forming recommendations which we hope will be enacted including asking that a sewage disposal system be installed to help take care of some of the pollution problems at the lake," Ful Ier said. He has been invited to meet with Rep. Sherman Lloyd (R-Utah) at a meeting he has called Aug. 12. Congressmen from Utah and Idaho and health department officials will discuss possible solutions to pollution problems. The project should be completed by the end of September and the final results released by Dec-

A little liitcliliild/Jfadvice-S'eeAmerica tlie lo/Jf wa9 By Richard Shafer It takes about three days to hitch to Moose Jaw, Saskatchawan from Logan, Utah, if you go by way of Calgary. It's a sure thing. If you leave this afternoon, you shou ld be there sometime Thursday, If you don't get hassled at the border . That shouldn't happen if you

are carrying enough cash to eat on. Signs help a lot, especially college signs . going to Nashville and are hitching.

Let's say you are

to make the big time 1 but you happen to be broke Start with a sign that says, "University of New

Mexico," don't go through Colorado, or you can plan on doing some time in the hoosegow. There are times when it's okey to go to jail, if you know they will let you out in the morning, but if they have a fine for vagrancy or hitching, you might as well have taken a plane. Personally I've only been jailed once, and it happened to be raining outside and dark. It was almost like a free room , except for a little required work on the mop crew.

So you've gotten to Santa Fe and it is time to change your sign. The University of Texas is a good bet , but if you don't know where it ~s, make one up, th.e folks never care about the sign after you get mto the ca r, they Just want to know what kind of a bum they've picked up. One summer I hitched half of Canada with a sign that said ''Watermelon College," mostly people just look at the ''College'; part of the sign. The state of Washington is notoriously

bad on hitch-hikers

Utah

is lenient, although the law says something like you can't sohcit a ride on a highway, which means you have to be off of the pavement. If on a freeway, they usually let you alone if hitching on the entrance ramps. The most general ruleforconfrontingpolice is, "b e polite/' and don't be afraid of the law. Canada Is by far the best place to travel by thumb.

Lately the

job situation has been worse than in the U.S., fewer kids go to college, and Canada 1, or the Trans-Canada Highway, is still a two-way road across most of the country. All this makes hitching ideal. It seems that all the kids are on the road . It is common to see as many as 25 to 40 hitch-hikers strung out for miles outside of the resort areas and larg e Canadian cities. It is a much slower way to go 1 but beautiful, with only a tenth as many people as the U.S. The Canadian Government and other organizations provide free or Inexpensive

food and l odging in hostels (Youth Hotels) in every

city and most towns . These usually are located in conve rted Na_tional Guard Armories or gymnasiums, and are full of guys and clucks from all over the world. It seems that everyone on the road is of the same family, a person you met in a hoste l in Winnipeg, might turn up in the bunk next to yours in New Brunswick. It may take you a month to get clear across Canada, whereas three or four days is common in the U.S., usually seeing little at 70 m.p.h., both have the! r good points.

Hitching can also be cheap. If one eats moderate ly, buying in groce r y stores, it is easy to travel a month or more on $40.00 or less. A nice hitch hiker can count on a free meal and bed from a motorist every so often, and they usually like doing it for you. Showers are difficult to get, a trailer court with a ce ntral facility is a "rip-off," but not much of one, also the YMCA or YWCA, which ever appli es, or even a community swimming pool is good, if you can't take a cold stream along the road. Freight trains are a good supplement to endless trave l in passenge r cars, when telling your story over and over again to each stranger gets on your nerves. The best approach to someone new at jumping trains is to ask the railroad people in the yard s, they are very helpful and are often glad to see young people engaged in an old American sport, "riding the rails." If you get in a box ca r, be sure to have plenty of food and water, the service is usually poor , also a sleepingbag to cushio n the bumps is a good idea, cardboa rd also works and is easy to find. You might even be able to sneak your bicycle on board, if you are going that route and want to save some pedaling. Last of all, help out eve ryone you ca n, sharing food with a fellow traveler is bound to bring greater rewards to you later on, it's just an unexplainable rule of the road.
