Baby Lamb Must Not Follow Mary

Baylor University’s dormitory matrons ruled Monday that even baby lambs must not follow Mary to her classes. The lamb in question, bathed carefully, and decorated with ribbon and orchid, was given to Anna Katheryn Elder, senior beauty from Greenville, by E. F. Crimm, a gridster from Henderson. But a “baa-baa here and a baa-baa there” drove the matrons to distraction. Now little Herman, the lamb, must reside with Crimm until it gets big enough for lamb chops.
