Wa formerisl lengthy stature to ll May Day I ff 4 0n the morning of May lirst, nine- teen six, J. Wilhelm Dorn driving across the campus behind his handsome cast iron gazelle, as is his custom, was startled to behold a runaway barber pole standing in front of North Hall, gaily decorated with colored streamers. Overhead hung the iron clapper of the college bell that rings each hour for the students to change professors. Near by was a large sign, "No class todayfi A constantly increasing throng was growing about a throne of wood that was raised facing the barber pole. Soon, amid loud acclaims, a Queen ofthe May was chosen, a stately and blushing beauty arrayed in a blue mother hubbard. lmmense cheering and the singing of a stir- ring ballad followed, to the effect that, inasmuch as the present occasion was the first day of May, the faculty could talie a well earned rest, which gentlemen lay low, saying noth- ing but sawing a couple of days off the Senior vacation. About this time, however, one of Erslcineis more ambitious metaphors soaring slay- ward exploded at a great altitude and brought on a heavy shower of rain. His majesty, the Queen, thereupon withdrew her court and train, attendant equipages, loyal serfs, etc., to the gym, capturing it without difliculty. lmmersing Kelly in the tank below, the merry bunch let Hy and tore up the stilly calm that precedes the storm, and passed a pleasant morning until lVlr. Babcoclcis sumptuous repast of popcorn and game of like nature were served, after which the survivors broke loose again. lbelieve a basketball game was attempted, and a mock wedding, but the report that a riot call had been sent in to Fort Sheridan caused a lull in the proceedings, and the conspirators retired to their quarters in good order. Perhaps it would be well to remember here the gallant attempt of our dauntless engi- neer to restore the barber pole, which subsequent to the foregoing proceedings had found its way by paths no man or freshman knoweth to the top of college hall, ascending to which altitude the engineer found himself the victim of a plan to store heat for that building by the enforced presence of the aforesaid on its roof. His ladder being removed, the plaintill found himself stranded as high as his own smoliestaclx and about , as dry. Attempt after attempt was made on the part of his adherents for rescue but in vain, and the aforesaid gentleman would have been in the identical situa- V cf-W5-'lx tion to this day had not J. W.

Promptly at live minutes before six o'cloclc students began to gather-lor it had been hinted that the there would be something extra in the line of a "feed," At the proper time lthat is when the door openedi they proceeded rather promiscuously lor their seats in the dining hall of the Commorfs building, whcrc a sumptuous dinner had been prepared by Mother Harper and her elilicient culinary corps. The tables were tastefully and beauti' fully decorated with turlcey, cranberry sauce and triangles of pumplcin pie. With capable carvers presiding at the tables and the assistance of the sprightly white robed attendants, all in sight was quickly consummated. After the clatter of lcnives and forks had subsided Professor Burnap rose and after proclaiming that in being able to comb his top hair with a towel he could do what none of us could do, he proceeded to humor- ously relate his exploits with football players who had been in his classes. The genial professor then presented the monograms to the several members of the team -each with a fitting eulogy. With the general sing that followed it can hardly be expressed too strongly that these occasions serve a most helpful function in the "building up" of the spirit that counts. MARRIED MEN-WIDOWERS' INDOOR BASEBALL GAME Ben Franklin, or some one like that, once said that to be successlul a man must be married and the annual indoor game again demonstrated the truth of that statement. The Bachelors tried to get away from their "Jonah" by simply changing their name to 'AWidoxs'ers," but they seem to be dying a natural death. for with this yearis desertions all hope ol- the future is lost. The Widoxy'ers were not wholly satislied with defeat and their captain gave out this interview alter the game: "l am sorry that the game was not postponed as several of my best men were unable to play tonight and we were forced to play without a full team. Had the team been l-ull it is hard to tell what might have happened." 77
