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-
