Spring tradition


Princeton NJ -- Seniors in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs almost were forced to forgo a spring tradition this year -- until the school's staff came to the rescue. The seniors normally celebrate the submission of their theses by jumping into the fountain on Scudder Plaza at 5 p.m. on the due date. But the plaza is under construction this year, and the fountain has been temporarily shut down. The staff helped the students improvise by purchasing five wading pools and setting them out on the plaza between Wallace and Corwin. The change in venue didn't seem to dampen the seniors' enthusiasm, although the 40-degree temperature on April 4 kept their dips quick.
