Grassbuir arrived. Classos were
virtually suspended, lessons were
forgotten for the time being, and
joy reigned supreme. Everywhere

I don't know whether it is the

The snapshot section Is good,
however, the likenesses are not
very clear except in close-ups.
There are a number of cute pic-
tures in this section and especially
the captions by the pictures are
snappy. Soma one, somewhere, on
the Tarieton campus is actually
very witty. For instance, the line

the crow flies.
The favorites are even better
looking than we thought before.

Lastly, the advertisements. These
are uninteresting, but the adver-

credit for getting so many ads.
This Is one of the hardest thingB
to do and it takes a person with a
good personality and a powerful

So here's to the advertising man-
ager, whoever he might be.
This year's Grassburr is truly a
book which we can keep through

more each year, How that they're

An informal Retreat Parade (no
blouses), was hold last Thursday
on the drill field with Major Hen-
dor presiding. We have almost for-
gotten how it feels to come to re-
treat without our blouses. Anyone
would have thought that tho band
was trying to get a "suck" or
sumpin' the way their white belts
were cleaned up at retreat, but my
guess is that the very persuasive
tactics used by the major to get
them to have their white belts
cleaned had something to do with
Regular drill was over Friday,
and w© only have two retreat pa-
rades left—ono this Thursday and
ono Sunday, May 21. This Thurs-
day tho non-commissioned officers
will get that little slip of paper
confirming the positions they hold
in the Cadet Corps, and on Sun-
day the commissions will be pass-
ed out, as well as all awards and
certificates of merit.
And speaking of flower show
dances, there happened to be so
many cadets there without permits
and out of uniform, that the 0. D.
just took tho names of those there,
and turned the ones in that did
have on uniforms, and they stuck
all the rest.
Then there was the time when
the major threatened to ostracize
the J-Tac staff if they didn't start-
correcting errors in the special
orders that they copied from the
military bulletin board before
printing them in the paper. The
J-Tac doesn't own a dictionary, so
wo just have to use our own imag-
ination in spelling, and in times of
mental stress like this, just before
the end of school, our imagination
Isn't so good,
very little time preparing for daily
classes, Thoy would much rather
wait and do their studying just
before an "exam." But they usual-
ly «nd the semester owing the
course many hours of study.
However, I do not think that
this two-hour theory should be
taken too seriously. The time re-
quired for a student "to learn his
lesMon" depends very largely upon
his attitude toward the subject
and his own particular ability in
the subject. I will use myself as
In one subject I am maKing an
A; yet, I'spend absolutely no time
at all in preparation for daily
classes and not over an hour for
tests. (This is strictly confidential,
although I leather imagine my
professor knows, or at least sus-
pect*, the truth.) In another sub-
ject I am making a C and for a
number of reasons, none of which
is that I do not like my teacher.
First of all, I have no particular
talent in this subject, and what I
do learn is only by very diligent
effort. Even though I would like
to learn this subject, I frequently
bccome discouraged because I feel
that my bourn of study are not
paying the dividends they should.
When I feel like that, more often
than not, I decrease the amount
of time spent on my preparation,
thus making bad matters worse.
Now, I frankly admit that should
I ever really budget my time, I
would not know how to do it. I
do not see how a budget can be
made that will be clastic enough
to take care of the many different
circumstances which might arise.
For me a budget without elastic-
ity ia out of question, I do not feel
that I could ever, through my own
will power, force myself to abide
by a time schedule regardless of
the many things of interest and
importance which might conflict
with my time budget. Certainly,
wo all know that we must have
recrcation, and through this med-
ium, we might be able to give
some elasticity to the budget. But
Just how much play does Jack
need to keep from becoming a
dull boy ? I am sure I do not
know, but I am reasonably cer-
tain that I will never budget my
time, regardless of the advantages
of such a plan.

Budgeting Of Time
' I have often thought how nice
it would be if I would budget my
time, setting aside specific periods
for study. I think: "By having de-
finite study periods, I will always
be up in my studies, and I will
not have to be eternally cramming
If budgeting one's time will
eliminate cramming and it seems
logical, I cannot understand why
I have not done this thing. Yet I
suppose I do not know the reason.
I like to have tho feeling that I
can go where I please, when I
please. I livo by this philosophy,
or whatever it is, to a large ex-
tent, always keeping in mind that
there are certain consequences I
will suffer in return for procrasti-
nation, That has always seemed
fair enough. Yet as I silently curse
the necessity for cramming, I am
ever conscious of the fact that
I am paying for the liberty which
I have enjoyed.
Students in Tarieton are told
that they Should spend two hours
J in preparation for each recitation.
Of course, few students abide by
that. Generally, students spend
