The Editor Speaks
Here we go again. For many of us this semester marks finis to
our college careers and soon we mu6t venture forth from our shelter-
ed and happy life here and face the well-known cold, cruel world.
I've heard a lot of people here and there talking about how glad they’ll
be to get out of school and how hum-drum and dreary the old place
la. Let's stop for a minute and take a good look. Where else and
when else will we meet and know so many fine young men and women,
where will we find an educated and interested group of mature men
and women always on hand to give us help and guidance with our
problems, and where else will we be able to do, for the most part, what
we want to do, when we want to do it. These and countless other
things seem to prove, to me anyway, that the years spent here at
Southwestern are "the best years of our lives.”
This Friday evening the third in the University Lyceum Series will
[ cqme t° stage in the form of Robert Rounseville, a handsome young
tenor from the New York City Center Opera Company. The response
to the first two artists of the Series was very poor and it certainly
seems a shame to me. Several excellent artists have come to South-
|fi>. western to perform and they have usually presented their program to
a certain group of 50 or 60 discerning and intelligent men and women
who can appreciate and enjoy good entertainment. Mr. Rounseville
has enjoyed a varied career and should present a program which will
be enjoyable to all, no matter what their musical tastes may be. Why
not give It a try—I don’t believe you’ll be sorry you did.
There probably comes a time in the life of mpst college newspaper
editors when they feel that the best way, out is suicide- This generally
occurs when the editor finds that all those people who were going to
i ; help write and edit the paper just never did get around to it. In the
$ of the Megaphone some four or five sturdy and dependable (they,
ye to be sturdy to write a whole page pf copy) students put out
1 the paper single-handedly. It puts a mighty heavy load on the faithful
fear and an even heavier load on Ernest and John Meitzen, who ptft

group of students, mostly of the opposite sex, that had to remain on
