Jon Pactor, class agent for the class of 1971, had a good idea for the Class Chapel Sing competition at the Big Bash. He had t-shirts made up with "Wabash College, Little Giants" on the front and had the first verse, chorus, and refrain from "Old Wabash" on the back. Pretty smart – the judges were forced to draw a fine line between innovation and cheating.
Of course, when the class got to the second verse, the t-shirt couldn’t help. Never fear – Jon pulled out a bell and started ringing it as the class stumbled through. First time I have seen "comm jamming" since my Air Force days!
Did they win? No. Are they winners? Of course!
