Our guiding lights! By now we really know them fairly well. From the rising- bell when we pass their bathrobed figures in the corridor, just as tousled and bleary- eyed as we are, ' til lights-out when we are figuratively and sometimes literally tucked into our downless cots, they are a great comfort. Interesting conversations de- velop over cereal bowls, and later in chapel they sing lustily and smile benevo- lently. On to classes where gems of science, language and other forbidding subjects miraculously begin to make sense to us, and to become interesting. Tiffin finds the faculty in Room 9 chatting midst bites of chocolate grahams. More classes and then after much backing and filling on our part, due to our somewhat confusing politeness on the stairs, our table teachers arrive at lunch to chortle over our pathetic efforts at pie-cutting, or to bring us the latest news broadcasts. Come apres midi and faculty off mo- ments. Some we see here and there down- town; others disappear in the direction of Baronial for... a bit of sociability; and some must be slaves to duty, for wee in- spection notes bearing snappy estimates FACULTY of room order are discovered — proudly by the " neaties " but with chagrin by those who prefer floor to closet. And when do they find time to plan corridor parties where we find food for thought and other- wise? Betimes new shiny cars glide about the circle carrying the faculty we know not where. Sometimes we actually envy them— particularly on a Monday night when they retire en masse to the McKeen Room and leave us wondering and (confession) eavesdropping outside the closed doors. Evenings find them more often than not patiently helping bewildered students untie the knots in their brains, or giving permissions for us to " get assignments. " The faculty may squelch our vocal ef- forts on the corridor and our hilarity in study hours, but they always sign our week-end slips and bear malice toward none. And when for the last time as their pupils, we see them in academic regalia on Commencement Day we - oh well — hearts and flowers to the faculty ! [9]
