Bert Manuscript Powmyf Thoughts of Man and Beast on Ff7Zg67"7'ZdiZ.Y Wayne Horn's winning essay, "Finger- nails," in the lnterscholastic League contest, proves that some like them short, some like them long, and even the jungle beast takes an interest in his nails. This was the winning essay in the school. The complete essay follows: FINGERNAILS lt seems to be the custom of the present species of human beings to adorn the tips of their several digits with a horn-like sub- stance, known collectively as fingernails. The purpose in this is quite puzzling, and al- though scientists seem to impress us with the idea of protecting the nerves upon the tips of our fingers, it is quite obvious that many timid ones are known as not to have any nerve. Regardless of this fact, these peo- ple also have fingernails. What, then, is the true mission of finger- nails? Perhaps that is one of the many in- terrogatory statements we mortals ask, yet we are not answered. lt is thus that, to satisfy our own gross queries, we produce our various conclusions. The human male is, as he believes, pun- ished by fingernails because of the ignoble actions of past fellows. One asks, "How is he punished?" Man has no peace in life, continually tormented by the duty of ampu- tating the ends of these annoying growths and extracting the amount of excess filth from beneath them. His is the sorry lot! The female animal of the human race is Page Seventy-four blessed with those pretty little coral shells. What a wonderful time she has preparing those dainty blossoms, in gay-expectation of some clumsy comment from her foolish mate. Toiling over her miniature Workbench, that is, the dresser, she carefully daubs a tiny brush and smears the nail with paint, making a grotesque upheaval of the dressery nevertheless, hers is the happy loti- Then we arrive at the manicurist. Day by day, she cleans and polishes. Cutting nails and cuticles, she lives from one day to the next in dread anticipation of having some uncouth male with greasy fingers apply to her for treatment. Yet there is the joyful ex- pectation of conversing, across the table, with some noted society matron. Ah, the manicurist's lot is a happier one, for finger- nails pay her. At last, we consider, not the human, but the beast. His fingernails are sometimes rudely regarded, by those with a species that he suffers greatly from such ridicule, but it was an act of providence that intended not for his ears such insults. The jungle inmates live blissfully unaware of the moronic beliefs of man. His life is filled with using his "claws" With them he lives. Tearing and scratching with his fingernails, he survives. Skillfully rending his portion of the kill from the vanquished, he nourishes himself. Poor man that knows not the way of the lower animals! Intelligent Carnivore, his is the happier lot!
