Last October was the first time a first-year class had succeeded in this slippery undertaking. Famous men who have taken part in such roughhouse fun at Beloit include the explorer Roy Chapman Andrews and the cartoonist J. N. ("Ding") Darling. Besides the big University of Wisconsin, at Madison, and Marquette University, at Milwaukee, the State has many smaller institutions, such as Beloit, Ripon, Lawrence, Carroll, and a number of teachers' training colleges.
