Probably the first trophy to grace the New College halls has been awarded, and it is for a strictly non-athletic, non-academic activity: ice cream eating. New Coll ge students have made a North Trail ice cream parlor one of their favorite spots and when compeitition was opened for consumption of ice cream, they entered \lith gusto. The Dipper Dan trophy was to go to the organization or institution whose members, during a specified period, ate the most dips of ice cream. An individual award of a savings bond went to the ingle student eating the largest number of dip at a single sitting. New COlleg students eaily won the team award over the nearest competitor, Sarasota High School, and took home the trophy. First year tudent Dennis Greene of Laurel, d., took the individual trophy and led the college team to victory. He downed 38 scoops of ice cream before having his fill. Reportedly he trained by not eating for an entire day. Third year student Dennis Kezar, a philosophy student and ex-champ of Iowa high school wrestler a, ran second with 20 scoops. ehind these two \'lere Don Aronoff of New York City and the lone female winner, Shelley Schlicker of Arizona. There was no talk, in spite of the victory, of forming a team for intercollegiate competition. more
