In our freshman year, when Mr. Cruse was editor of the Science Newspaper, T. Cobun was faculty advisor, I was a young cub reporter. I wrote science fiction stories.
I wrote one tale of which I was quite proud about a robot named Klax. Old Ted never said he liked it, but upon passing me on the campus shortly thereafter, he looked at me with that crooked grin on his face. Instead of saying "hi," he said "Klax."
That was quite a compliment.
