A psychologist told me a few
days ago that there is a thing
called "attention span."
Well me and my own atten-
tion span get along pretty well
but sometimes it deserts me. At
such times there is nothing to
do but take a break fiom that
grueling task called "study." As
I wander around during those
little breaks I see some interest-
ing things and just thought you
might be interested in th.m too.
In fact I have come to this
conclusion: There are several
courses being taught and club
meetings being held which are
not listed in the academic sched-
ule nor are they found in the

calendar of the week's activities
but they go on just the same.
For example a certain group
of young men have a self-perpetuation
class called "How to
Say Much About That Which
You Know Little." The second-
semester course in this subject
will be called "How to Say It
Long and Loud."
The last time I audited the
class the discussion was about
bears. Carl had heard something
about a Kola bear.
"You nut" cried a half-dozen
voices "surely you have refer-
ence to the polar bears that live
in Ecuador. They ride around on
icebergs looking for empty to-
mato cans" finished one.
"I understand that if they do
not go to the regular polar bear
meetings they will be sent to the

Jim aked "What do they talk
about at those meetings"'"
"Jim. I thought you wete
smarter than that" chided Joe.
"You know polar bears do not
talk. They just sit there and
grunt at each other. The biggest
bear grunts loudest because
imiy of the bears lefuse to come
to the meeting."
"I can even tell you what he
grunts most about" bragged
Ron. "Some of those polar bears
horde up their tomato cans and
will not donate them to thq big
polar bear and his cronies."
I must confess I was ashamed
to be so ignorant on such a sub-
