Nor was the search futile.
To comprehend the severity of
the drug problem, one need only
look at the drugs confiscated from
a single dormitory. For instance,
in Holt officers uncovered 57,301

not a single pill, pellet, or capsule

Friends of St. Mary’s are dazed
by this gloomy disclosure. Ponder

of the Board of Trustees sadly
shook his head. “It’s a tough pill
to swallow,” he said.

heroically ignored all pleas for

Adorable,” the protestors built a
huge bonfire in the metal trashcan
in Lower Smedes and belligerently
threatened to burn all gradebooks

were deterred from the inflania-
