Bentley for the many times he has given up his office and room to the photographer. Helen Miller and Dan Terrell for making the beauty contest possible. The faculty committees for selecting the outstanding seniors. Mr. Daniels, Miss Chamberlain of Benson ' s; Mr. Leahy of National Engraving, for their understanding help. The Publications Board for its patience — special orchids to Mr. Hoadley. And last and perhaps even more important the following of my staff: Ginny Goodwin for stabilizing " Ye Editor ' s " temper when material didn ' t get in on time, and for being her " right-hand man. " Jay Rutherford for getting things done at a moment ' s notice. Ernie Webb for the best student photography yet. Bunny Barrows for being such a willing jack of all trades. Belle Simon and Caroline Sulzer for their excellent writings. Sally Lee Young for her invaluable assistance with the dummy.

Incidentally, I must have a common face — at least, I was mistaken for some celebrity and rushed before press photographers as soon as I arrived. (Remember those fellows on the beach who said, " Haven ' t I met you before? " Maybe there ' s more of me run- ning around than I thought.) After leaving my puss plastered on pho- tographer ' s plates I meandered over to Hurst Hall feeling very important. I was shoved up to a desk ai.d some guy stuck me with a pin which turned out to be a name tag. Other people had ' em on, too — maybe this joint treats you like State Penn. Next thing I knew, a hurricane in shorts whirled us out for a squint at the campus. By now, I felt about as important as twins in the Dionne family.

They tell me that there are lots of couples here who don ' t pet in parked cars — the Grotto is full of them. I ' ll let you know more about it when I find some inter- esting men. The rest of the campus is just classrooms and libraries — so I left to get dressed. The dorm is my new hon.e — such as it is. It seems to be the cnly place where sound travels faster than light. They say people who live in glass houses don ' t have much privacy — the dorm might just as well be pyrex. I grabbed me a towel and ambled to the nearest shower. Just then five men pranced by under some drip ' s trunk — ex- cuse me, they tell me she ' s a drizzle (you know, a drip that goes steady) — anyhow, the glunks bearing the burden dropped it — at least, I heard a l w moan out of some guy- When I got back to my room, I had to (Continued on pJge 107} m WASHINGTON S CHESTNUT FARMS CHEVY CHASE DAIRY tl06] WESLEY HEIGHTS PHARMACY Your College Drug Store 3303 45+h Street, N.

(Conltnucd from page 107) the darned prof woke me up to inquire if I had come to college to pursue learning or learn pursuing — dearie me, and other words of exasperation. You know, Brenda, I found there are two kinds of kids in class — those who talk to the prof at the end of the hour and those who get " C " or less. Had a geology class this morning — I ' ve come to the conclusion that a prof is just a textbook wired for sound — and they all have minds like time-tables — subject to change without notice. And then — Math class! The teacher thinks I ' m playin ' dumb, but I ' m just plain dumb. Today, Doc asked me what Anti- Log was — and the class thought it was funny when I said " The wife of U..cle Log. " Well, I can tell you — I certainly felt like a fraction being reduced to its lowest terms. But I ' m not young enough to know everything. . . .

I always said that dancing is swell training for girls — it ' s the best way to learn to guess what the guy is going to do before he does it. But this dancing is different. Ail the girls turn out in less than bathing suits. The floor gets to look like a reducing ad — and all " before " in- stead of " after.
