Listen to the Nightingale ! Ho! the ugly head of the nightingale of the barnyard now rears itself and causes no end of evil thoughts to burst forth in great magnitude. There is much currying of the brain as those petty events that have riled the Staff during the year are remembered, and the whip-popper is renewed to cause deep wounds. A spade is placed firmly in hand and work is be- gun to heap caloused remarks upon the loved ones of the Campus. These lily white hands now become soiled and gone is the unblemished record that has been so fondly kept. So glad that the coming year will not be graced with our presence because re- venge will be planned. Bring forth the roll and let us go down the represent- ations of our gentle classmates picking out those that need be reminded that their stay here has but been noticed by the rank and file — some pitied, some envied, some despised, but still have left their mark in the Hall of Disregard. Here and there a name that caused irk to the rest mattering not that they think that only a sweet fragrance lies in their wake as the walks are graced with their footprints. Big Shots, small shots, and the sundry elements are paraded before us in pantomine. Here and there a deed once done is remembered and a big spade full goes sailing to land ca-plump. First off there is the President of the student body, Jimmy Patterson, who in 1937 entered Centenary being snatched right out from the athletic big-wigs of Louisiana Tech in whose town the yokel boy made good on the grid- iron, period. Then there is Martha Shepherd who always smiles and looks so sweet. Chosen for a couple of honorary jobs that carried no significance, she leaves school with tales to tell her grand-chil- dren that only grandchildren would listen to. Martha O ' Neal gadded about for some 36 months with never a brilliant thought under her blond hair. Just the simple and sweet type that boys try to find, but when found are just found. Then there is Olga Thibodeaux, the cutest little thing that one ever did see, who found out that being a litle fish in a big pool wasn ' t near so nice as being a big fish in a little pool, thus returning to Centenary after attend- ing a couple of classes at L.S.U. Next in line is that well traveled young man, Lamar (Toddle House) Bain who changed his major more times than he changed his shirt. His impeachable character made him a fit leader for a group that backed the Zeta Tau Alpha ' s regardless of the consequences. A bray over from Homer way tells us that Paulyn Gill is a worthy deserver of the honor of appearing herein. Paulyn rides, it seems as did Dorothy Courtney, but Dorothy got married. HOWEVER LUCY BETTIS IMAGINED A MARRIAGE BETWEEN ROBERT WEBSTER AND THE GILL GAL. Not to be forgotten is C. E. Ewing, (how could we), who for years tried to be a Casanova of the first water. His first attempts are forgotten, but the last one he went with was Olivia Bott, which put him in line for a broken neck. By the way, we will never be able to forget the Morrison boys, Charles and Gwin, habit of letting their pins go here and yon with not much thought. From the depths of Mansfield (40 miles south), also the home of George Fair, came " Little Abner " Nabors, the pride and joy of the home folks also the bouncer for the K.A ' s. Last but not least the change that has come over Henry William- son since coming under the tutorship of Doc More- head, thus making a zephyr out of a gust of wind.

A Donkeytopsy by Dr. Whiffinpuff Well, we brought the Donkey over to the Commerce Building after much coaxing and pushing, getting him as far as the steps where he refused to travel further until so-and-so went down to the Student Union Building and played a game of ping-pong. Finally he consented to go up the stairs and see what he was made of. The Editor sent Katey Ewerz over to the Zoo lab to borrow a disecting set and then Mr. White had to be found to borrow a file to cut the microbes off the scalpel, and then the poor little donkey submitted to a whiff of the business manager ' s sock and passed gently into dream-land. First his brain was taken out to see who governed his actions so well. There we found the Student Senate in a big confab over who was to shoot the cubes first and who faded who and why, finally coming out was James Patterson who rolled craps first off and wouldn ' t pay Charles Knight the three cents that had been bet. Leaving this portion of his anatomy, the Staff went to the legs to find out who upheld both ends and the middle and there were four staunch supporters so often found in each other ' s company — Bob Ray and Betty Mae Coburn up front in a golden beige Ford with Thais Ray ' s registration rapped around the steering gear and Hugh McCall and Bernice Ed- wards trying to get on the other side in the back without going around one another. We figured that this would go on forever, so the heart was looked for next. This proud animal, being what it is, could only have the greatest pumping organ of any one around so we felt sure that only the brave and true would be the keeper of the oiler. That happened to be Bill Morris and Kathleen McDonald who have gushed over one and the other for so long and so sweetly that we were not surprised one little bit, for we felt sure that they would keep it up until life did them part or they found out about one another. Dropping over to the stomach we found such a great (you thought we were going to say personage or better) mass of humanity that we had trouble at first in seeing who it was but finally the Irish Sweepstakes winner came over the radio and he rose up to see who it was and so we found out that the supplier of the part the ilium comes be- fore was Henry Williamson. What Ho! we cried, " will stuff never cease such as this, " and went grudgingly on our way to the next part, guided by the chart that we had borrowed, also from the Science Department, that showed what parts should be where, and came up on the liver — gall, bitter gall, cast an aroma on the typewriter and smelled strangely of Lloyd DeMoss and corroded the keys. Letting our staff science major run a test on the fluid going down the main bile duct she found it to be a lot of little Kappa Sigmas following the orders of the great leader who had so much practice in three years. Finally, after several hours of ill-wished work we came to the tail and there to one ' s already crazed brain came the surprise of the composition — sitting in the shade of the canvas covering were Prexy of the Knights, Lamar Bain and Marie Hemen- way leisurely skipping classes and wanting school to hurry and get out. We had reached the end and sader but sillier, quickly the parts were thrown to- gether for the effect of the sock had worn out and the Jass Honkey was beginning to stir. " My gosh, he said as he came out of it, " did you have to hit me with that Colliers? Wouldn ' t a Saturday Eve- ning Post have done the same thing? " With this we could keep him no longer and he bounded away into the night to come again on the morrow and wart us more.
