STUDENTS' "MAYPOLE" PRANK IN MARTIN PL AC El

Twenty-one University men undergraduates yester- day invaded Martin Place in pantomime fairy cos-

tumes.

Carrying a placard saying

"Maypole by Courtesy ' of City Council," they danced in a circle around the Martin Place clock.

Several other activities-a yo- yo competition and groups of students gazing into space

to attract passers-by-were organised to distract attention from preparations for the main

event.

,Few people took notice.

A policeman stopped the "Maypole" dancers, after three

minutes and ordered them out of Martin Place.

The students were celebrating the last day of Commemoration Week. Three faculties, Arts, Medicine, and Law, claimed credit for originating the "stunt."
