Up the Pole for L.S.D
Up the Pole for L.S.D.
"Money—what else?" sent student Stephen Gooder up the pole for a fortnight. Supplementing prize money with income from advertising, he cleared more than £30 a week at the Trades Fair.
Weather was bad, so most of his first week was spent in the sleeping-bag he was advertising. Another exhibitor's radio was a useful asset. Food was supplied by his father every morning, but hot dogs, waffles, ice-creams etc. were freely available to him.
Gooder said he "got on all right," but would not reveal anything about sanitary arrangements up there. His only comment was "that's a trade secret you can't let out."
