Profs make provisions for strikes

Students worried about the prospect of crossing union picket lines to attend classes in the event of a strike may be spared that dilemma. The Dean of the College’s office has been working to secure off-campus locations for professors who do not wish to hold classes in picketed buildings.

The Slip gives the term “jam band” new meaning
