THE QUILL ll QUILL STAFF

IO THE QUILL of their garments were loosened and borne away. Then it was raining, incrediby hard. Fortissimo CVery loudl The thunder-heads raised their quarrel- ling voices higher and higher, hurled light- nings. The bolts crashed into one another and rolled and rumbled and were lost in the uproar. An evergreen was cleft asunder through its very heart and trembled and toppled. The old houses wept. Morendo CGradually softer and slowerj At its very height the storm ended, sud- denly, completely. The lightnings went out as though controlled by a master-switch, the thunder died into sullen rumblings, the rain stopped as if a faucet somewhere had been turned off. The wind became only a wandering breeze, touching lightly the sud- den ruins of flowers. The wet fires of the trees burned thickly, unquenched. -Thelma Gillespie, '38 EATING Eating is essential. Everybody, of course, realizes this fact, although I sometimes won- der if everybody does. During the past few months I have been watching people eat, especially as to how much they eat and how they eat. I find that there are "eating" classes: the elderly, the middle-aged, and the young people. First, I will discuss the older generation. Most old people like to eat. By old I don't mean aged to the extent that they are feeble, but about sixty-five or seventy years old. I may be wrong, but it seems to me that this group of people like to eat and eat a lot and take their time in doing it too. They just love to have their food all around them and then start in with the first course and eat their way to the dessert. The women of this class have good table manners, but those of the men are not likely to be so good. Now, the middle aged group. This group of "eaters," in my opinion, is the best. They have moderation in the amount of food that they consume and also in the way they eat. Nor do they Cat slowly or in very large amounts. Persons of forty or forty- five, I think, are at their prime as far as eat- ing is concerned. Their diet is balanced, and they realize that food must digest. Their manners are generally good, but they aren't fussy to the extent that every thing must be eaten just so. Young people - boys. Every boy that I have ever had an acquaintance with, liked to eat. We don't like to dilly-dally around when we eat either. If there's anything that gets me, it is waiting for the older people to finish in order to get the dessert. Sad to say our manners aren't what they should be and no one knows a formula to clear the situation up. Girls-I actually have a great deal of sympathy for them. I suppose they really have to be stylish and not be fat, but when it comes to starving oneself in order to keep the body looking nice, it seems to me a little foolish. Naturally -- thin girl, you are lucky - at least you can eat. But there is one thing. I have noticed some girls eat little, but much of what they do eat is fat- tening food, candy and the like. No won- der they have trouble in keeping thin. Girls for the most part have nice manners. On the whole I think males eat more than

IZ THE QUILL females, and females have better table manners than males. -Lawrence Caney, '38 CAN YOU IMAGINE? The dictionary says, "To imagine is to form a mental picture of." I really hate to think of all the time I've wasted dreaming of that trip or of that good-looking college boy, or of that old-fashioned house at Christmas. So many times I've conceived myself in that grey three-piece suit or in that navy-blue box-shouldered cape with that red plaid skirt. Sometimes I pinch my- self and awake with a start to realize I'm not that celebrated author, but only Louise Quinn of Gardiner, Maine, supposedly studying in a school-room. But how I pity those who cannot imagine themselves far away doing adventurous things, meeting exciting people. For what fun when I let my mind wander or become one of those Hollywood celebrities buying 589.50 dresses, hobnobbing with stars, chatting with Nelson Eddy and Michael Whalen or, especially in the fall and spring, traveling to the far corners of the earth. Yet though I may imagine it now, it can come true if one tries enough, for it is not only luck that makes people what they are, but also ambition, and I earnestly desire to live up to my motto by Arthur Bagley, who said in an assembly last year: "There's the novel to be written, the song to be sung, the picture to be painted. You'll do it!" -Louise Quinn, '38 WORRY When I was too young to know better, I learned to read, and sometimes I think the whole thing was a mistake. Of course, if I could just read something and forget it, it probably wouldn't bother me at all, I'd never know the difference. But I don't seem to do that. I get to worrying. A good book acts as a powerful drug on some people. I read somewhere about a man ugulping down the strong headlines of the morning paper like so much black coffee," and although I "gulp" and am "drugged" for the time being, reading seems only to stimulate worry in me. I worry for the characters while I'm read- ing a story. When I've finished, I worry about what happened to them after we fthe author and D left them. I worry about books I have read, about books I haven't read. I worry about the books I ought to read and those I ought not. Worry-I have written that word eight times now. What is worry? Imagination provokes a little gray, misty figure, with bright beady eyes on the look-out for some- thing to disturb, scuttling through the cor- ridors of my mind, trundling around cor- ners, bumping unexpectedly into things and upsetting the little orderly piles of my thoughts. Rather absurd, isn't it? But this is only my own private worry. Perhaps someone else's is just as silly. But no matter what differences our indi- vidual "worries" may possess they all have one thing in common: they dominate us. Try as we will to shut them up in some dark corner, they're always popping out and romping about, sometimes only for a short time, sometimes for days at a stretch. And it isn't only reading that excites them-
