Young People Like Smart New Ideas . . . Styles Are Up-to-Date at Hemenway s Si P STUDENT CHARGE ACCOUNTS ARE SOLICITED THE FOUR AGES OF COLLEGE " in the know " for the casual air of his freshman days was never more than a pose, but this new thing he has become is the real thing, he is really a part of college. Nothing can enter more wholeheartedly into the college picture than a sophomore. He is possibly the most typical character of the campus. Morose, clever, flamboyant, a little too loud and a little too sinister, he stalks through a year of glory. For it is that year that he establishes himself: he beats freshmen and bullies them be- cause the memory of his novitate is still close; he shocks his elders and parents because he wants to make clear his entrance into a man ' s estate. In short, he exhibits all the characteristics of a braggart child lest he be taken for what he is — -a braggart child. Then a junior. This is the least conspicuous era of all. Perhaps, it is that the old rumor is true, that he does his real studying that year. At any rate he does considerable growing up then. He becomes more self-conscious, although in a different sort of way, wakes up to a certain childishness in himself and seeks to overcome it, calms down. For about the first time in his life he realizes a lot of things pre- viously unknown to him. During this transitional period he finds himself bewildered and awe-stricken at the very immensity of the universe and the complexity of things he had taken for granted. Also women become of less importance during this phase and he often makes resolutions to do great things of undying worth. However, he seldom does them. And now, last of all — the SENIOR. Nothing less than capitals can do him justice. Next to the freshman he is the most interesting person of all in this strange, eventful history for he is the epitome of all that college has to offer. He has seen much, done much, dreamed much, and discarded much. He has junked an entire set of beliefs and conceived a new set very similar (though he doesn ' t suspect it until much later) to the old ones. Yet surprisingly enough he ' s a fairly rational individual — he has pretty definite ideas about (Continued on second page following)

PENNEY ' S IS PROUD OF CENTENARY AND ITS RECORD OF ACHIEVEMENT! T T has seen hundreds of fine young men and ■ ■ women leave the portals of this great educa- tional institution to become leaders of the Southland! It has felt the force of their personalities and aggressiveness in every phase of the civic, com- mercial, and professional movements of this section of the Southwest ! Such outstanding success in the development of men and women deserves the undying gratitude of every worth while citizen of our nation. E»r E Y P E N N T Y ,C O M P A NY , " W here Ark-La-Tex Shops and Saves ' ' THE FOUR AGES OF COLLEGE Editor ' s Note: Actually this has no place in this section of the yearbook; it sneaked in on us. For in it is more truth than humor, more realism than wit. Yet somehow its rather brazen note of fact has made us pause before passing it up. Then, too, the newfound stat us of dignity that ' s crept into the Donkey Pen has caused us to in- clude it. Perhaps in it you will find parts of yourself, Joe and Mary Collich, whether you admit it or not. A freshman is a wonderful thing — a creature of dreams and ideals, of illusions and ambitions, of whims and vageries, of stupidity and wisdom, of maturity and adolescence. He is a unique being in a harsh, jangling world of clash and conflict for he has in him that spark called youth, filled with half-formed ideas and wishful yearn- ings. And thus he is a lamb for the slaughter. His first tumultuous few days in college startle and thrill him. For he is now a member of the species Collegius Americanus, a strange mystical cult devoted to a mad four-year run of pleasure sandwiched in between classes .-jw-v and exams. Things whirl before him, a kaleidoscope of math and .iPf-T . co-eds, Ph.Ds and pledge parties, registration and jokes. Three months work a marvelous change in him — he becomes frat man (or sorority dame) and has found that the pursuit of knowledge has dwindled to a secondary place. No longer does he stand with timid mein on the side peering fearfully into the chaos before him. Rather he is chaotic with the best of them, doing obeisance to a Greek-inscribed gold pin, dating with a debonair casualness, apeing to the best of his ability his elder brethren, affecting a pipe, wise- cracking in an offhand manner. This phase lasts the remainder of his freshman year. Comes sophomoredom and boredom (for if any progress is made in college, it is the progress of ennui; the indifference of collegiates progresses from wide-eyed expectancy in the first year to utter cynicism and sophistication in the senior.) Now he has really gotten (Continued on following page)
