for a vote. Hands were raised, and the registrar took a count. It was a tie, which meant that Praeger would get to cast the deciding vote. But just as he was about to do so, in staggered Lash, his face the color of the warning lights on an ambulance. He had to be helped to his chair, and no sooner was he seated than he stood up and demanded a reading of the minutes of the last meeting. The situation was explained to him, and he said in a loud, clear voice, "I will have none of it." There was a stunned silence, and we all filed out. As I passed him, Lash said to me, "I never liked the circus much, George--not even when I was a boy."
It took some time for the dust to settle. Edwina Gwan is now our department secretary. Nafken has gone to the Harvard Medical School. The Herschel J. Lang Chair in Cognitive Studies, with Bleibermacher still firmly attached to it, was moved bodily to a large university in Texas. Bleibermacher sent me a photograph of the ceremony at which Lang was finally awarded his honorary degree. With his right hand Lang is accepting his diploma. With his left hand he is slipping the president an envelope. He has the look of someone who has finally arrived.
