Bruce Plante

After initiates of a fraternity drew the ire of a Fayetteville police officer in 1975 by streaking from the chapter's old fraternity house to its new house, the officer drew his gun, ordered the streakers to stop and then fired his gun twice into the air in an effort to stop them. Apparently, the strategy only made them run faster. Bruce Plante caught the flavor of the event by drawing the officer as a well-armed bandito, rampaging through campus. In addition to providing editorial cartoons, Plante also wrote a comic strip called "Sheepskins." He continues to draw cartoons for the Chatanooga Times Free Press in Tennessee.
