T.C.U. Students Tell "Life" and "Readers.
Of Ideal Professors Digest" 'Most Popular
FORT WORTH "The ideal col-
lege professor should have the re-
spect of his students but not their
Thus one student at Texas Chris-
tian University summed up cam-
pus opinion on the qualifications
of a good teacher for The Skiff
Knowledge of the subject a
good personality and above all
a sense of humor are important
qualifications for a good teacher
in the opinion of the students.
One girl put it:
"The ideal professor has a pleas-
ing voice a pleasing disposition a
sense of humor gives an interest-
ing lecture and has an interest in
each individual student."
FORT WORTH Students at
Texas Christian University like
to look at pictures. At least that
seems a fair deduction from the
fact that they voted Life their
favorite magazine. Nearly 60 per
cent of the boys and girls indicated
that they read the picture weekly.
In second place with the stu-
dents is a publication that uses no
pictures at all The Readers' Di-
gest. But the two favorites do not
offer such a contradiction as at
first seem apparent.
"Both publications summarize
for quick reading" one student
commented "the first with pic-
tures second with words."

NEEDLE IN SEVEN YEARS
TRAVELS THROUGH FOOT
RED HILL Pa. It required
seven years for a needle point to
travel "one foot."
The foot was that of James L.
Wood Red Hill farmer. He stepped
on a needle seven years ago. The
point penetrated the big toe of
his right foot and broke leaving a
half inch of steel in the flesh.
Wood forgot about the accident.
Recently his right heel became
sore and he consulted a physician.
The latter made a small incision
at the sore spot and extracted the
needle point explaining that it
probably had traveled from the
toe across the top of the foot and
into the heel.
What Happens Elsewhere
NUDE NOGGIN: Latest money-
making frank stunt to supplement
the gold fish and phonograph rec-
ord eating contests of collegians
comes from Ohio State. Last week
Ernest R. Tennenbaum a sopho-
more had his hair clipped off
neatly and smoothly for a $5
bUl donated by his Tau Epsilon
Phi brethren if he'd go through
with the dare. Hair tonic manu-
facturers will prosper as never be-
fore if this idea goes the way of
the gold fish gulping contests.
DORMITORY ROMEO: A Uni-
versity of Florida collegian has his
own "correspondence club." It's
made up of 18 women in U. S.
cities and hec laims he knows
cities and he claims he knows
promise not to divulge his name -for
most obvious reasons!
PIGS: Luther College has a new
endowment building stunt that we
think is something that demands
a place in our little book of col-
legiate oddities. To gather funds
for the erection of a new women's
dorm it is asking farmer friends
to donate a pig to the college in
the spring feed it during the sum-
mer and present the full-grown
hog or its equivalent in cash to
the college next fall. Yes the
college is located in the tall corn
An official organiation for heav-
ing a sigh of relief over the end
of the week's classes on Friday
has been formed at the University
of Idaho to pay homage to class-
less Saturdays and its called the
"Thank God for Saturday" club.
George Keogan Notre Dame hard
wood coach who claims it is true:
A few years ago he had on his
squad a very fine player who
wore a glass eye. He played a
guard position with the blind side
toward the outside so he could see
the playing court. The official
was Nick Keanes who was Just
breaking into the officiating game.
A mix-up took place under the
basket on one of the plays and
Keanes saw this guard down on
hands and knees groping along the
floor. Thinking the boy was in-
jured he stopped play. Walking
over to him he said "What seems
to be the trouble are you hurt?"
"No' was the answer "I'm not
hurt but I lost my eye."
"Oh that's all right" Keanes
comforted him. "Nobody else is
doing much scoring either." The
guard turned his head toward
Keanes at that moment and see-
ing that the fellow had really lost
his eye Keanes cried out "My
God! How did that happen?"
"Somebody knocked it out with
his elbow" said the boy. At that
moment he found the eye and
Keanes saw that it was glass. The
boy then asked for permission to
leave the floor -and when he re-
turned he had the eye in place and
announced that he was ready to
play. Keanes was now sympa-
thetic and said "Say it must be
pretty hard playing this game
with only one eye. Can you see?"
"Oh yes" came the reply that
dried up Keanes' sympathy. "When
the time ever comes that I can't
see I'm going to try officiating."
Unusual though the organiation
may be its chief activity is most
unusual: at "secret" meetings held
in local movie houses members
must make audible wise-cracks at
least every ten minutes during
their viewing of the feature picture.
Now that the hot-stove league
has been called to order for post-
season basketball yarns we are
compelled to pass on to you (via
the Ohio State "Lantern") this
'swell laugh. The story is told by
