Look out for annual
The ninth annual Jail-n-Bail, sponsored by the Panhellenic Council and the Interfraternity Council, works this way: Students and faculty can be arrested on warrants, which are bought ($2 for students, $5 for faculty and staff) in advance by friends or colleagues. They are then brought to the ROTC Hangar, where bail is set. "Prisoners" can call anywhere in the United States to raise bail. Arrests will be made between noon-8 p.m. March 4 and 5. Last year the event raised $24,000 for the American Cancer Society. Arrest warrants can be bought Friday from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. at the Co-op, and Monday from 1-4 and 7-9 p.m. at Homer Babbidge Library.
