The Bobcat Howl
THE following scratches and bites were collected from the gay young blades and demure misses of our old institution, when they were unaware that we had seen them in their gambols over the campus, gum-chewing contests in the library, or their more sober moments in the class room. We got the low down on you from many different sources; maybe your dearest friends tipped us off, or maybe it was your “roomie,” or mayl c t was just the little bird that we hear so much about but never see.
We make no attempt at wit; in some cases there is a point or fact to be brought out, while in others there is an attempt to keep you from forgetting the more frivolous things that happen at college.
Now, if any organization or individual seems to detect a rather pointed statement in the following pages, you may do one of two things. You may make a fuss, which won’t help because its too late, or you may be a good s|x rt about it. Why not grin and keep sweet?

Shady Playgrounds—Joy to the Kiddies
I think that I shall never see A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast, A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in summer wear A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
