Page 132 Js T H E O R I O L E ENGLISH AS SHE IS SPOKE I am an upholder of good English. In all the world I think there ain’t nothing as bad as bad English. Look at I for an example. I ain’t never made no mistake in grammar; of course I realize I’ve had more eddication than most people has. The other day, me and a friend went to the moving pitchers. There was a girl setting be- hind us, and she used the word “ain’t”; now that ain’t right, there ain’t no such word as “ain’t.” Another example is my friend Jack. He was at the back of the house and I hollered to him. He answered back with “I’m a- comin’!” That ain ' t right also. He should have said “I am a-com- ing.” Then, when he come on round the house I told him about his mistake, but he didn’t take it very graciously. He should be thank- ful for the interest I had done showed, and listen to his betters. I ain’t got my diploma in high school yet because the teachers say I make too many grammatical errors. I don’t know what that means but I guess it means something about my arithmetic being wrong so much. But I don’t care about no arithmetic, when I’ve done devoted all my time to good English. Folks, you’ve heard that old fable — “If at first you ain’t succeeded, keep on trying till you do.” Well that’s me; at first I didn’t succeed, but I kept on trying and now — well — you’ve saw the product.

THE ORIOLE 4 Page 131 RULES FOR UNDERCLASSMEN Whereas, certain of the underclassmen have conducted them- selves in a manner entirely unbecoming to their station, be it re- solved, that the following rules be and are accepted by the Senior Class: 1 . Remember your subordinate position. 2. Do not call Seniors by their first names without permission. 3. Do not expect to get your diploma in two years. It takes four years for most and five or six for some. 4. When in class, do not snap your fingers at the teachers. They do not come at your call. 5. Do not ruin the reputation of the school by misbehaving on the streets. 6. Do not offer information to Seniors or Faculty. 7. Do not ask impertinent questions. 8. Do not mistake the Upper Hall for Broadway. Vaudeville performances are not expected of the students when changing classes. 9. Do not be late for chapel. You are expected to arrive before 10:30 A. M. Colleen Seagle ’28. C+ £ MY LAMENT Of all the things I like the best, I like my “eats” and that’s no jest. I eat and then I eat some more, Still I’m as empty as before. I like rich pies and also cake, Only food keeps me awake. Then there’s meat and good white bread, These alone keep me from bed. Three square meals I must have a day, And some between to keep hunger away. I must have this, and I must have that, And I eat, and I eat, but I can’t get fat! I eat ’til I nearly get my fill But I can’t gain a pound — It makes me ill! Why others always get fat so quick Buf I — Well, I look just like a stick. Marie Richardson ’28,

T H E O R I O L E 4 Page 133 I WONDER There’s lots of things I’d like to know, As thru these days I quickly go. Lots of things great and lots very small, That I can’t figure out at all. And so I’ll ask a few to you, To see if you are ignorant too. Why does the teacher always call on me, When I’m as dumb as I can be? And why are we always laughing or wearing a silly grin, When the Principal comes walking in? I don’t know, do you? And why, when in school, we’re all chewing gum, I always get caught; I’m the unlucky one! I don’t know, do you? Now I have said more times than one, That I’m going to quit this chewing gum. But when some one comes along And offers me a stick, I surely grab it mighty, mighty quick. And too, I have said, that talking in school I would stop, But when some one talks to me My tongue goes flippety-flop. I wonder why I really do, But I don’t know, do you? Nancy Landis ’30. PARTING Unspoken words, words at parting, Find their voice in song, Sing them soft and tenderly, The song will not last long. And hand grasps hand at parting, Hearts find hearts in song, Unspoken words at parting — ’Twill last as life is long. Winifred Duncan ’29.
