Students use pros to edit research
BLACKSBURG, Va. — A new term-paper service here is providing a
bit of controversy for Virginia Tech students and faculty.
The company, Editorial Services, advertises that it will help stu
dents edit their research papers for a fee of $10 per hour or $1.25 per
page, whichever is less.
“We don’t sell term-papers and we don’t write term-papers,” says
the firms owner. “Our expertise is in making whatever it is (the
author) has to say readable."
Virginia Tech has a strict honor code and students using the
service must clear it in advance with their professors. The firm says
it assumes the students will get such permission before coming to
them. — Collegiate Headlines

Smiles turn to growls for Ms. Piggy
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — Foiled by the jealousy of her competi
tors, Ms. Piggy didn’t reign over the Middle Tennessee State Uni
versity Homecoming.
Instead, she withdrew from competition after being selected as
one of five queen finalists. Her departure was prompted by the
“negative attitudes” of other students, said Ms. Piggy, who was
actually a MTSU student who wore a pig mask and refused to reveal
her identity. — Collegiate Headlines
