± Then—and Now
Before the holidays the campus
was in a stir and things were real-
ly moving. No one seemed (or ad-
mitted being) sleepy; no one had
(or realized it) any work to do.
Everyone was busy with his own
plans for nothing but a good time.
The campus was busy with gay,
laughing, carefree students who
were bubbling over with happi-
ness at the thought, of something
different. On the last day things
moved with an even greater speed
than before. Tightly-packed suit-
cases and overflowing boxes and
bags, and one by one students left
the campus deserted.
Just ten days later the scene
was greatly changed. One by one
the students returned, but not in
the same spirit as before. Then
everyone began to realize that
there was work to be done. Sleepy
students slowly began to realize
that exams were approaching.
Suddenly the campus was again
the place of work and study as it

There is a story about Arkan-
sas which Texas and Oklahoma
love to tell. It seems that when the
colonization movement was under-
way after the Civil War there was
a sign placed at the forks in the
road from Tennessee to the South-
west. This sign said that those
wanting to go to Oklahoma should
go the the right while those head-
ed for the plains of Texas should
take the left-hand road. The story
goes that those who came along
and didn't know how to read just
settled down and founded Arkan-

Professor Koldfeet Courteously Gives
Way to Another Distinguished Citizen
Although Wildly Proclaimed in Chicago
Throwing research instruments
and cares to the four winds, Pro-
fessor Koldfeet, who has invented
more unpatented instruments than
any other living human, "took off"
for Chicago immediately after the
Christmas holidays commenced.
Enroute to the Windy City he fell
asleep, and due to the fact that the
conductor was already aware of
the Professor's temper, he did not
wake up until his train arrived in
Chicago. Here a large crowd was
gathered, several bands were play-
ing and the Mayor, in all his pomp
and glory, led a band of dignitar-
ies toward the part of the train
from which the Professor would
most likely emerge. As Koldfeet
stepped off the train—but let the
Professor tell you the rest in his
"As I stepped off the train the
crowd literally went wild, sending
cheer after cheer into the 10-de-
gree night air. The mayor, an old
friend of mine, rushed forward
with open arms to greet me but
evidently stumbled slightly just
before getting to me, because he
rushed right on by and started
shaking hands with a tall- distin-
guished-looking man who had just
got off the train. (The mayor,
whom I knew as a boy, was al-
ways near-sighted.) Discovering
the mistake, the mayor started to
apologize to the man and was
about to come back to where I
was, when he happened to notice
that the gentleman was President
Roosevelt, and realized that he
should at least ask Franklin D.
(I knew him as a boy, too) to have
coffee with him.—And thus I lost
the opportunity of seeing my life-
long friend, although I stayed in
Chicago more than a week, and
went up to his -office every day."
The daring reporter, who only
a few weeks ago was the victim of
one of Koldfeet's "moods," sensed
that there might again be danger
because of the increasing glint in
the Professor's eyes as the story
progressed and as his luck in Chi-
cago continued to be bad. So the
young journalist .after making
some excuse, hastily made his exit,
leaving the Professor still talking.
The weather, which has been
sadly neglected in this issue, con-
tinues to be fair On Thursday of
this week, after a slight shower
Monday morning (just enough to
eliminate drill.) The Professor,
who claims he prefers blondes,
predicted that the temperature
would rise and fall in. proportion
to the hot or cold weather.
