WISHING kO you wish that P. II. S. was better? Let me tell you what to do — Set a watch upon your actions, Keep them always straight and true; Rid your mind of selfish motives, Let your thoughts be clean and high. You may make a little Eden Of the room you occupy. Do you wish that P. II. S. was wiser? Well, suppose you make a start By accumulating wisdom In the scrap-book of your heart. Do not waste one page in folly. Live to learn and learn to live. If you want to increase knowledge You must get ere you can give. Dorothy Spence, ’25. 64

1 H E GIRL OF TODAY do the majority of the pcojilc condemn and speak so n uch harm of the girl of today? V ' hy don’t they study the girl a little more before the exj:ress their opinion and see if they don’t find more good than harmful things to say about her. ! think if we would only take a litt’e more time to consider her good qualities we would not haA c any spare time for criticism. Let’s do a little analyz.ing of the girl of today and see if her way of li ing isn’t an improvement o -er the ways of the older generations. We vill take the three main faults that most people criticize her for. First, she bobs her hair; well it’s more con- A cnient, it’s more sanitary, and it’s more becoming. But some say, “Yes, but she bobbed it only for style’s sake;’’ probably she did, and I guess our grandm.others wore rats for the same reason, amd I am sure they weren’t cither healthy or convenient. Next, her clothes are — well, there is no fit or shape to them and there is no over supply of material in them. That is all true, they are not so heavy, long, and tight, so as to hinder proper circulation, and they are not long enough to be used as a vacuum cleaner to gather up the dirt that might be in their path. d he last criticism is that she is very unladylike. Why? Be- cause she takes an active part in all healthy outdoor e.cercises she can, such as swimming, skating, basket ball, running the car, etc. I guess she should be sitting by the fire, in an air- tight house, piecing a quilt. If she did this rouge would have to take the place of the natural coloring in her checks. I want to mention the education of the girl of today. Did you ever see larger graduating clas.ses than those of the present time, and such oung girls too; the average is about scv ' enteen or eighteen. Those classes of yesterday were not so young and the a crage then was from twenty to twenty-fi ' e. Then, too, the majority of the class are not willing to stop with a high school education, but strive on and study until they are capable of entering into the line of work they have chosen as their vocation. So now, you who may have criticized, admit that you have judged her too harshly, and let’s give three cheers for that Avonderful creature so full of life and ambition — the girl of today. Marie Hardy, ’25. 63

TOM oiir janitor, is one of the jolly kind. Hisskin is ■ j shiny black and he has no hair on the top of his head. This he conceals either for pride or comfort by wear- ing his hat all the time. His figure is squatty and fat and his feet are extra large. A large and beautiful gold watch and chain is very conspicuously draped across his front and nothing pleases him more than to be consulted in regard to the time. This very valuable watch and chain cost him exactly forty-five dollars in spite of any suggestions to the contrary. The janitor is very particular about his brooms and cleaning utensils. Borrowers must have Tom’s permission to use them even for the very shortest time and must put them back in the proper place, which is any place Tom happened to have left them. Scolding is one of Tom’s greatest accomplishments which he has perfected from long practice. He can make one feel very low and mean and never want to repeat the offense. One never knows just where to find him for he wanders all over the s.chool. But if you would have a favor performed and want a real good jolly worker, look for Tom. Caroline Knapp, ’28. 65
