In the fall two young high school students — Ruth Rink, violinist, and Joan Walraven, pi- anist — were presented as soloists with the orchestra. Mr. hiess conducted for the violin number and Mr. Echaniz for the piano number. One interesting feature of the program was a number by Desenberg of Chicago. Mr. Desenberg attended the con- cert and was well pleased with the orchestra ' s interpretation of his composition. The program on March 26 consisted of the " Concerto in G Minor " by Mendelssohn, played by Jane Larsen, pianist, with the orchestra; Vieuxtemp ' s " Fourth Concerto in D Minor, " played by Veva June Appel, violinist, with the orchestra; the Overture to " Merry Wives of Windsor " by Nicolai; and an original composition by Walter Emch, conservatory faculty member, played by the orchestra. 48 ' Jl 1935 MUSICAL ORGANIZATION Fourth row : Bell, Bredehoft, Larsen, Kagey, Stetthacher, Davis.

The A Capella choir, under the direction of Grant hiadley, is connposed not only of conservatory students but also of any university students who are interested in choral work. The choir ' s singing has contributed much to the college chapel programs. This spring, rather than give an opera, the choir gave a concert in combination with the Madrigals and advanced voice students, using excerpts from operas as its numbers. The group performed at the Y. W. C. A. vespers and for the City Panhellenic vespers. 49 MUSIC Jose Echaniz, Internationally known pianist, completed his third year as head of the piano department of the Millikin Conservatory of Music this year.

The group was composed this year of a well-balanced membership of har- monious voices, several of which had the advantage of a year ' s previous experience. In order to explain the exact nature of a speaking choir, Mrs. McNabb has arranged it into these words: " It is group re-creation of poetry or prose in which the principal emphasis is placed on the mood and the rhythm. The nature of the selection decides whether it will be given individual, antlphonal, or choral treatment. The group works in three pitch levels, the blending of the overtones producing an orchestral effect. " Miss Davida McCaslin acted as advisor as well as an outstanding member of the choir. 75 WOMEN ' S FRATERNITY StKiiid iMU : Langham, Davis, Langelier, Roth, Larsen, lltck. Ilnimit. I-ra cr. Livesay.

A September rushing dance opened the Teke social season and was followed by a harvest dance in November and the annual Christmas formal. They were among the first to entertain on the schedule of university teas. Spring events Included a dinner dance and a May breakfast. 92 ' L 1935 OFFICERS President Maurice Murfin Vice-President....

Johnson, the 1934 James Millikin grid eleven finished its season as undefeated co-champions of the Illinois College conference and was generally con- ceded to be the class of the conference. Braced by one of the best reserve squads of several years, the Big Blue juggernaut swept over all its opposition, with the exception of Illinois Wesleyan, where the grid- iron was a quadmire and the Titans were able to hold Millikin to a scoreless tie. Johnny Heinlein, scrappy little senior halfback from Chicago, was captain of the team. Praised by one coach as " the best coached team " he had met all season, the Big Blue relied, for the most part, on straight football tactics for its victories. The players had tricky, difficult plays at their command, to be sure, and they were responsible for many big gains and several touchdowns. But Millikin was essentially a team that played straight football well. Miiiiu 97 FOOTBALL CHRISTMAN, CAPTAIN-ELECT In Captain Johnny Helnlein, Elmer Fawley and Carl Burgener, Coach Johnson had three clever jack-rabbit backs who could pick out holes, get through them, and keep going out in the open. Heinlein and Burgener, a freshman, furnished most of the fireworks the first half of the season while Fawley was the whole show during the last four games. He scored eight touchdowns in four games, many of them coming after long runs, and was a constant threat to opposing teams. Burgener and Heinlein were both fast and hard runners. Upon two freshmen, Steve Lenich and Ralph Allen, fell the job of blocking, and it goes without saying, they seldom missed a cue. To these two went a great deal of credit for making possible the spectacular runs of the backs. Earl Welse, sophomore fullback, held down fullback duties In fine style. He divided kicking and passing duties with Heinlein and found plenty of time to do his share of line plunging and blocking. Roy HIndman, another freshman back, gave several impressive perform- ances. Paul LipinskI and Earl Freeman were other blocking backs. 98 ' J-Lc 1935 FOOTBALL While the flashy work of the backfield showed the brightest, the line slowly built up a record that was unmatched in the conference. Lake Forest was the only loop team to cross the Big Blue ' s goal. Rose Poly and Ripon each scored once and all three touchdowns came as the result of passes. It just wasn ' t any use to try to run past the forwards. The line was blanked by the two great sophomore ends — Bill Giraitis and Loyle Davis. The two mighty first team tackles were Fred Christman and Nick Gilbert. Compe- tent reserves for the tackle berths were Mellroy Ross and Frank Courtright. " Auto- matic Joe " Rolinaitis, place-kicking star, and Don Lauher were the guards and Walter Rademacher held down the center position. Chief assistants in the middle of the line were Gordon Heggie, George Balma, Frank Russell and Don Steins. Herman Mehmken, 1934 letter-winner, saw little service because of a knee injury. Millikin opened its season against Wheaton college under the lights on the J. M. U. field and won in a romp, 4! to 0. It was largely an experimental game for Coach Johnson and he got much information that proved valuable as the season wore on. The Blue went to Charleston the next Saturday and walloped the Teachers, 30 to 0. Heinlein and Burgener scored two touchdowns each and the Weise-to-Giraitis pass- ing combination clicked several times, once to allow Bill to score a touchdown. The game at Wesleyan, played in a continual downpour, was a heartbreaker for the Millikin eleven to tie. The heavy footing stopped the light J. M. U. backs and the halftime gun stopped a sure Big Blue touchdown on the three yard line. Miiiiu 99 FOOTBALL The fighting Irish of St. Viator lived up to their name in the hlomecoming scrap and Weise ' s pass to Burgener, who made a beautiful leaping catch behind the Viator defense, accounted for the only score of the game. Milllkin found Itself trailing RIpon 6 to 0 at the end of the first quarter but blocked punts and brilliant running by Fawley gave the Johnsonltes a 26 to 6 triumph. At Lake Forest the Blue scored seven points in every quarter to turn back Ralph Jones ' s eleven, 28 to 6. Fawley again ran wild while Siraitis snatched a pass for a touchdown and Rolinaitis booted four perfect extra points. V ith its title claim hinging on the Bradley game, Milllkin went to work after a slow first quarter and rushed over three touchdowns in the second period to salt away the game. Fawley plunged over the first, ran 65 yards for the second, and V else plunged the third. Fawley counted again In the final period on the lateral from Lenlch. The final game with Rose Poly was a regular track meet. Fawley had touchdown runs of 75, 70, and 32 yards; Burgener raced 70 and 59 yards for counters; Heinlein made 24 and 1 I yard trips over the goal, while Davis, Matthews and Lenlch counted one each. Gold footballs were awarded to twenty players after the season while hielnlein, Fawley, Rolinaitis, Ross, Chrlstman, Rademacher, Lauher, Giraitis, Davis, Gilbert, Welse, Courtright, Burgener, Allen, Lenlch and hilndman received letters and sweaters. • • - 100 Lc 1935 FOOTBALL According to figures compiled by the Associated Press, Millikin was the third highest scoring team in the nation, getting 228 points. The scoring was well divided between twelve players, a fact that undoubtedly accounted for the success of the season. Points scored were as follows: Fawley 48, Weise 37, Helnlein 36, Burgener 36, Davis 18, Rolinaitis 17, Giraitis 12, Matthews, Lenich, HIndman and Chrlstman 6. Welse tied for second in the conference scoring race with 31 points, hielnlein, Fawley and Burgener tied for eighth with four loop touchdowns, hielnlein, Rolinaitis, Fawley, Chrlstman, Giraitis, and Davis, were mentioned on various all-star teams. The 1934 eleven was the fifth undefeated conference team Leo Johnson has coached in eleven years. Wayne " Hank " Gill was of course Leo ' s right hand man, during the year. Fred Newton Jr. was senior manager and was assisted by Dale Bell, Brud Folrath and Dick Huff. Fred Chrlstman, tackle from Assumption, Illinois, was elected captain of the 1936 team at the All-Sports banquet. Chrlstman succeeds Johnny Helnlein. 101 MillilL BASKETBALL Second row : Hallihan, Musso, Cox, Van Ausdal, Spilman. First row : Goldman, Coach Leo Johnson, Glynn.

The fact that the Big Blue finished seventh in the Illinois College Conference race is no dull reflection on the record established by the Johnsonltes. They were good, but, like any athletic team, were decidedly " off " on a couple of nights and just couldn ' t hit the basket. The con- ference race, too, was much tougher. Where Millikin lost three loop tilts this year and finished seventh, last year they lost four and finished fifth. The Big Blue had a perfect season against non-conference foes. In the first game of the season the Arkansas Aggies were drubbed 46 to 26. The Southeastern State Teachers of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, were thumped handily 55 to 35 and the last non-conference foe to fall was the strong University of Nebraska quintet, 36 to 35. As was the case a year ago, much of the success of the team during 1934-35 was due to the high scoring ability of Delmar Cox, six foot four center from Rossville, Illinois. Cox was a better ball player this year than last, looping 70 field goals and 44 free throws for 184 points. Of this total 140 were scored in the nine conference games to give the lanky sophomore second place In the loop scoring race. His greatest individual feat was scoring 25 points against St. Viator. In four other games he scored 20 points or more. Millikin opened the season against the Arkansas Aggies, winning out 46 to 26. It was a bad break for the Big Blue that the Illinois College game followed so closely. Football season had just closed and the players had had only a minimum amount of practice. As a result Lasiter, Winn and Co. took a 31 to 28 decision from Millikin. A week later the locals proved just what might have happened with a little more practice when Cape Girardeau was walloped 55 to 35. 103 BASKETBALL NATIONAL GUARD ARMORY Although the final score was 36 to 35, Mllllkin ' s conquest of Nebraska U. was much more decisive. The Big Blue held a comfortable lead at the half and it was not until the last minutes that a frantic Cornhusker rally closed the gap between the scores. Milllkin won Its first conference game from Bradley at Peoria, 43 to 29. While the Blue held but a narrow 19 to 13 lead at the end of the first half, the second twenty minutes was a rout with Coach Johnson ' s block and out-of-bound plays working to perfection. The Northern State Teachers of DeKalb, defending conference champions, were the next victims. It was largely through the work of Mel Goldman that the Blue was able to sneak out with a win. Goldle fired in three field goals in the closing minutes to assure a 35 to 21 triumph. The next Milllkin victory was one of the sweetest of the season. Illinois Wesleyan came down to the Armory and put In forty very bewildering minutes. The final score was 49 to 32 for Milllkin. It was the most complete rout a Big Blue team had handed Wesleyan in many years. Illinois College defeated Milllkin for the second time of the year at Jacksonville, 44 to 37. Milllkin led 30 to 28 at one time during the game. Four of the Big Blue players went out of the game on personal fouls, and as a result the final minute saw Milllkin with but four men on the floor. St. Viator came to the Armory and bowed in defeat 48 to 41. Cox banged In 20 points as the Blue halted a late Irish rally and sailed to victory. In one of the wildest scoring orgies in Milllkin basketball history, Bradley Tech was smothered 58 to 17. Milllkin led 21 to 5 at the half after holding a 1 5 to 0 lead at one time. The second half was a whirlwind affair with the sharpshooting Mllllklns tearing up and down the floor, scoring uncannily from any and all angles. The Big Blue paid a visit to St. Viator and annexed another victory, 39 to 28, as Cox tossed in nine field goals and seven free throws for 25 points. A feature of the game was the fact that only four personal fouls were called on the Milllkin players. The final game was a sad ending to a great season. With the shadowy jinx of the Wesleyan gym hanging over their heads, the Big Blue players just couldn ' t click against the Titans and dropped the final game of the season, 34 to 30. 104 ' J-L 1935 BASKETBALL Mlllikin scored 504 points during the season while opponents counted 383. The locals ' average was 42 points per game while opponents averaged 31 and I 1 12. Melvin Goldman, captain-elect of the 1935-36 quintet, was second high scorer, get- ting 93 points. Goldie ' s greatest game was against Illinois Wesleyan at the Armory and when he fouled out of the battle along near the end, the spectators arose In a body and paid him one of the greatest tributes accorded a Mlllikin player In many years. Jay Glynn was right on Goldie ' s heels, netting 89 points. Glynn, for the second year, proved to be one of the most aggressive players in the conference and was a constant threat with a " dead " ball long shot and tricl y one-handers. Captain Joe Rolinaitis counted 42 points from his guard position. He was ranked by Coach Johnson as one of the best guards In the conference and was always a steadying Influence on the rest of the team when the going was hot. Archie Van Ausdal and Walter Spllman divided up the other guard position. Both were clever guards and good shots. Reserves who made up the remainder of the team were A! Musso, Bill Wright, Cecil Garrlott, Dan Hallihan, Luther Marshall and Mike Bensko. At the end of the season coaches of the conference voted Cox to a forward position on the All-Star team and a couple of weeks later he was third In a poll to determine the most valuable player In the conference. Melvin Goldman was elected captain of the 1935-36 team at the All-Sports banquet held early In the spring. Goldman and Van Ausdal, both from Taylorvllle, will be the only senior regulars on the squad. Captain Joe Rolinaitis and Walter Spllman were the seniors on this year ' s team. 105 SPRING SPORTS The 1934 Millikin baseball feam ended Its season with a .500 average for all games played and with a record of three victories and five defeats in Illinois College con- ference competition. The nine was captained by Allen " Buddy " Russell, senior pitcher and first baseman. Russell not only led the Mllllkin batting attack with an average around .450 but also was high In the list of conference sluggers. The Big Blue won its first conference game from Charleston, 12 to II, In a weird affair that was not settled until the last Inning when Dean Trainer, second highest of the Millikin hitters, rapped out his fifth hit of the game. Charleston was defeated later in the season, 8 to 3, while the other victory was gained over Eureka, 13 to 5, largely on the basis of an eight run attack in the first of the ninth Inning. Scores of conference games lost were: Eureka 12, Millikin I I; Wesleyan 7, Millikin 5; State Normal 8, Millikin 0; Wesleyan 19, Millikin 8; State Normal 7, Millikin 0. Non-conference games found the Johnson nine whipping Concordia of St. Louis twice, 7 to 6 and 5 to 4. Herman Mehmken, George Balma and Russell handled the pitching assignments, while Trainer and Archie Van Ausdal took care of the catching. Other lettermen were Don Craig, second base; Eddie Clauter, shortstop; Bill Giraitis, third base; Paul LIpInskI and Walter Spilman, outfielders. i06 1935 SPRING SPORTS JACK WRIGHT an For the first time in several years Millikin was represented by a varsity golf and ten- nis team. Although the golfers did not have as full a season as the netters, they won two Nassau count matches from Illinois Wesleyan, and Jack Wright, No. I man on the team, tied for the Illinois College conference individual championship. The golfers beat the Titans on the South Side Country club links in Decatur, 9 to 6. Wright and Forrest Kyle shot 77 ' s to lead the Big Blue team to victory. At Bloom- ington, Wesleyan was defeated to 8J4. Other members of the team were Bob Sanders, Karl Grohne, Jay Glynn and Melvin Goldman. Wright tied for the conference title after an amazing comeback on the Monmouth Country club course. He shot a 38-39-77 in his morning round and then in the after- noon went out in 38. A blazing 32 on the in nine gave him a 147 total to tie for the title and also a share of the course record. The tennis team broke even In eight matches. Members of the team were Eddie Majors, Dan Hallihan, Bill Wright, Junior Kohr, Duane Garver and Frank Henry. Fol- lowing are the scores of the matches: Wesleyan 4 Eureka 4 Illinois Millikin Millikin Millikin Millikin College 6 5 Millikin 3 Millikin 2 Millikin I Charleston I Charleston I Eureka 2 Wesleyan 0 Millikin 3 Illinois College 4 In the district tournament Eddie Majors advanced to the semi-finals before losing out. The Wright-Garver doubles team also advanced to the semi-final round before being eliminated. 107 MlMek INTRAMURAL HANK " GILL The present Intramural system at Millikin was established by R. Wayne " Hank " Sill at the beginning of the 1932-33 college year as a branch of the physical education department, and for the third consecutive year it has served as a valuable addition to college life. It is the purpose of the department of Intramural Athletics to encour- age the men of the student body to participate in competitive athletic sports and organized recreation. Intramural athletics are divided into two leagues, namely, Inter-class and Inter-fra- ternity. All campus championships and inter-squad tournaments are also held for all students regardless of their competition in either of the leagues. The director of Intramural athletics, " Hank " Gill, was assisted this year by the fol- lowing students: Intramural manager, Everett Schlie; publicity director, Forrest Kyle; Class managers, 1935 — Alvin Eubanks, 1936 — Bus Mitchell, 1937 — William Beck, and 1938 — Roy Corzine; fraternity managers, Sigma Alpha Epsllon — Harry Lewis and Frank Russell, Independents — Delmar Cox, Delta Sigma Phi — Walter Spilman, and Tau Kappa Epsllon — Gus Greanias. Up to the spring vacation inter-class competition in four events had been finished. The freshmen won the Indoor baseball and basketball tournament. The sophomores won the volleyball tournament, while Wallace Munsie gave the seniors first place in the indoor tennis singles. Indees grabbed the lead in the fraternity competition and up to spring vacation had not relinquished It. They annexed first places in speed ball. Indoor baseball, boxing and wrestling. The Tekes, in second place, won first In volleyball and basketball. At press time the S. A. E. ' s were in third place and the Delta SIgs in fourth with diamond ball, tennis (singles and doubles), golf, track and horseshoes (singles and doubles) to be played. 108 ' JLc 1935 INTRAMURAL dividual champions declared on the basis of fall and winter sports were as follows: Golf — Forrest Kyle.

Miss Helen Puth Chodat, The 1935 Millidek, James Millikin University, Decatur, Illinois. Dear Miss Chodat: I have finally succeeded, after considerable weighing of the pros and cons, In picking the three girls whom I believe possess, to a greater degree than the others, beauty, personality and charm. It was ex- tremely difficult to arrive at a decision, but after having taken everything into consideration, I have chosen the following three, in the order named: 1, Miss Martha Pugh 2, Miss Emily Jane Wood 3, Miss Lelah Curran And of course you have a right to know why. Miss Hugh — because she possesses what to me is outstanding poise, an air of good breeding, a clean profile, nice eyes, straight nose and a genuine wholesomeness which leaves no other choice possible for me. Miss Wood — because she is sensitive, lovely delicate featured, well- poised, and also possesses a certain almost undefinable air of dis- tinction and good breeding that seems to be so essential to real beauty. Miss Curran — because she is sweet, charming and nicely set-up. Her head sets well, she has a beautiful line from her ear down to her fingor tips, following the most beautiful arras it has been my pleasure to observe. Congratulations to James Millikin University for having seven of the most genuinely beautiful girls I ' ve seen in a long time, and best luck to the 1935 Millidek. JG EM Cordially ...

" Professor Raab held up a copy of Rodin ' s famous statue before his class, and asked If anyone knew the name of It. Little Johnny Heinlein answered brightly: " ' The Thinker ' . " " And do you know why it was called that? " " Sure, " replied Johnny. " He went swimmin ' , and is tryin ' to remember where he left his clothes. " DEFINTTIONS Boy: A noise with dirt on It.

The accomplishments of Mildred Langbehn hHave been " The Swan " and " Christopher Behn. " . ' But other conquests, those unsehn. Have been great . . . and masculehn. There ' once was a guy named Al Weiss ! Whose pencil and brush works were nice. His drawings Mae Westian Were most un-Dean Hess-ian And he was accused of vice.

After six long years in a college daze The seventh finds her out. In cloistered halls the students pray For it is graduation day; They do not want the school to burn And that is what they wait to learn — Whether the faculty, in consolation, Will approve the graduation Of a perennial member Who every September Had fervently announced his intention Of ending his year of retention. It would be such a shame To place, on him, the blame, .- ■• For the total destruction Of a school of instruction. | At last the worried students hear That they need not retain their fear; For Millikin ' s noble trustees And faculty, by painful degrees Will graduate Munsle (by a new rule) And will not have to burn the school! There once was a senior named Sanks Who said to another guy, Eubanks: " Four years I have tried, I have strived, dug and lied. And ' s no use, I ' m still in the ranks! " Said Al Eubanks lo Harold Sanks: " My friend, do not fret — You may pass English yet — And then the whole school will give thanks! " Wayne Schroeder, now let me see! Is the guy — oh, yes!

Berkeley knows all about electricity Yet he gets two lines of cheap publicity! Little Johnny Heinlein — How are all your Holstein?

The Doakes ' older daughter, Mary Louise, Sailed through her four years with a little less ease But ' twas from ' ppendicitis And not neglectitis Though we often accused her of cutting-class-itis Caught from her sisters, the Alpha Cheese. Harvey lived in Dayton For eighteen years, I guess. And then He lighted out for Millikin. Four years he was of the lettermen, Then four years more of going to class, And two of loafing, more or less; And now he ' s going — such sadness! Goo ' bye, Harvey! Marianne Williams . - Has trudged up the hilllams Of French and of English And musical trilliams; So without further frilllams We ' ll dip in our quilliams And write of the fame Of Marianne Williams! With rings on his fingers And on his toes, bells — May few be the woes Of one Arthur Wells. Dorothy Sullivan ' s a very fine lassie — For four hundred weeks she cut nary a classle; Therefore, no instructors she had to appease, And she sailed through four years with The greatest of ease! Dorothy Bayless (who sings like a bird) — Her songs in chapel no more will be heard; Against her demeanor we can ' t say a word. So to go on with this would be rather absurd. There was a Maronto named Rosemarie Whose enthusiasms reached the nth degree, Pope, Shelley and Gray, Racine, Rabelais, Aristotle, Plato, Santlana and Poe, Matthew Arnold and Clough — MIgawd, that ' s enough!

And you know what we mean. " ) The road in front of this Institution of higher learning was at one time in deplorable condition. One day a meeting was held to determine what should be done about it. After all evidence had been heard, the chairman of the board, in a polite manner, said: " From all reports, I ' d say the road was fairly good, taken as a whole. " " True, " said the spokesman for the complainants, " but we want to use it as a road, not as a hole. " THE SAD STORY OF WILLIAM WRIGHT Bill had a billboard. Bill also had a board bill. The board bill Bill had bored Bill, so that Bill sold the billboard to pay his board bill. So after Bill sold his billboard to pay his board bill the board bill no longer bored Bill. Dr. Luther Marshall: " Pardon me. You look like Helen Black. " Justine: " Yes, I know I do, but I ' d look worse in white. " Pritch: " How do you like the new goblets we have at the house? " Lois Crawford: " Goblets? Why, I always thought goblets were sailors ' children! " Lewie Brltton took his smiling Jeanette to a fashionable restaurant. The bill of fare was In French, and Lewie pointed to an item on it and said huskily: " We ' ll begin with that. " " Sorry, sir, " said the waiter, " but the orchestra Is playing that. " Then he handed him a napkin. Lewie looked at it carefully, frowned, got up, spread it on his chair and sat on It. The waiter, taking pity on him, said, " Will you have the table d ' hote or a la carte, sir? " " Both, " said our Lewie, coughing. " Both with plenty of gravy! " " It ' s a fine day, " said the barber. " It is, " agreed little Bobbie Linn, about to be shaved. There was a long silence. The barber tried again. " What are your views on the political situation in this old country of ours? " " The same as yours, " answered Bob, meekly. " Look here! " exclaimed the barber. " How on earth do you know what my opinions are? " " I don ' t, " said Bob. " But you have the razor! " Brooks: " Did you ever speak before a large audience, Willard? " Canode: " Why, yes — I think I did, once. " Brooks: " What did you say? " Canode: " If I remember rightly, I said ' Not guilty ' . " Dr. Boyer: " Dan, who defeated the Philistines? " Hallihan: " Aw, I don ' t know — I don ' t follow those bush league teams. " Roberta Beck: " Pledge, just look at this table. Why, I can write my name In the dust! " Pledge Wiley: " It must be wonderful. I wish I was educated. " W. A., pinned under his car after an accident, was being questioned by a policeman. " Married, Mr. Dipper? " " No, " answered W.

" Jimmy ' s father: " hie ain ' t ain ' t he? Why, the young whelp ' s done traveled twicet as far as most kids his age. " A junk shop near a railroad crossing in Denver carries a sign with this coy hint to motorists: " Go ahead; take a chance. We ' ll buy the car. " In an eating place between here and Chicago there is a placard on the wall which reads: " Don ' t make fun of our coffee. You may be old and weak yourself, some day! " Ed Schroeder, lolling on the Supply Store counter: " Have you a book in stock called, ' Man, the Master ' ? " Sue Matthews: " Sorry. We don ' t carry fiction. " Mr. Mills: " Well, I guess I don ' t expect to see you here again, Wallace. We ' ll miss you. " Munsie: " Not see me again, Mr. Mills? Why, you aren ' t going to resign, are you? " Miss Biggs: " What is the definition of flirtation? " Brilliant freshman: " It is attention without intention. " Bud Lewis: " Gotta cigarette? " Newton: " Sure. " Bud: " Gotta match? " Newton: " Good gosh, you didn ' t bring along anything but the habit, did you? " Mary Louise (to mother who had been lecturing her about going back to college): " All right, Mother, I ' ll take that post-graduate course. I ' m still vague about forward passes. " Joe Gauger: " Now, if I subtract 25 from 37, what ' s the difference? " Eddy RItscher: " Yeah! That ' s what I say. Who cares? " Herman Mehmken had never seen his grandmother, so when she arrived for a visit he asked: " So you ' re my grandmother, are you? " " Yes, " replied the old lady, " on your father ' s side. " Herman sighed. " Well, I ' ll tell you right now, you ' re on the wrong side! " The man who sings his own praises Is quite likely to be a soloist. Nancy: " Would you marry a man for his money? " Louise: " Not exactly. But I ' d want my husband to have a good disposition, and if he didn ' t have money he ' d very likely be worried and ill-natured! " Lib Mills: " And did you see the Everglades In Florida? " Cynthia: " We called on them, but they weren ' t at home. " While it may rain on the just and unjust alike, the latter usually has a chauffeur to come and get him, while the former has to walk In it, and furthermore has holes In his shoes! Catherine Anne (looking over house plan): " What ' s this thing going to be? " Architect: " That ' s an Italian staircase. " C. A.: " Just a waste of money. We probably won ' t ever have any Italians coming to see us. " Laugh at yourself, and you ' ve conquered life. 148 Le 1935 SNAPSHOTS I r . . 1,==:. . . — Style . . Quality . .
