  【故事梗概】

  早上,在Robbie吃早饭的时候,Grandpa 和Philip唱着密歇根大学的校歌走了进来。他们告诉Robbie该校到纽约考查新生人选的招生主任Charley Rafer是Philip的同学,而且Charley已经同意为Robbie安排面试。

  Grandpa & Philip:

  “Hail to the victors valiant,

  Hail to the conquering heroes,

  Hail, Hail to Michigan,

  the champions of the West!”

  Philip: Ah, good morning, Robbie.

  Robbie: Good morning, Dad.

  Grandpa: How's my grandson?

  Robbie: Fine, Grandpa. Fine! What's all the cheering about? Did the University of Michigan win another football game?

  Grandpa: Better than that. Tell him, Philip.

  Philip: I just spoke with Charley Rafer.

  Robbie: Who's Charley Rafer?

  Philip: He's the Dean of Admissions for the University of Michigan.

  Grandpa: And it turns out he's a classmate of Philip's.

  Philip: We were both on the tennis team.

  Robbie: Great!

  Philip: It is great. He's going to be in New York tomorrow to interview applicants for admission.

  Grandpa: And he's agreed to fit you into his schedule.
