Photograph(s): Today Is Groundhog Day, and according to the legend; “ The groundhog or woodchuck will awaken from his winter deep and emerge from his hole. If he sees the sun he will be frightened and go back underground for the next six weeks. If he does not see his shadow he will stay above ground and we will have spring weather for the next six weeks." The “groundhog method" of weather forecasting was originally brought to this country by German and English colonists. They believed it was an accurate way to forecast the weather for the next six weeks. To date, science has not confirmed or denied this. p. 1 -- Workmen recently leveled off an area of ground just north of the Duerksen Fine Arts Center.

Holmer, chairman of the Wichita State Physical Education Corporation, introduces Cecil Coleman, Wichita State's new athletic director, during halftime of the Wichita State vs. Memphis State basketball game Jan. 28. p. 8
