FORDS 4 Page 67 THE ORIOLE AYE you ever thought of how many different kinds of Fords there really are? For example, there is the Ford that belongs to the man of limited means. It is always overburdened and the slave of the family It gets up at six every morning and goes to work, rain or shine, except on Sunday. Afterwards children use it for a spring-board by jump- ing up and down on the cushions until in protest the springs poke their way through to stick some unlucky one. On Saturday it gets its weekly bath and shine and on Sunday takes the family clan for a long ride. There is also the farmer’s Ford. It stays out of doors all kinds of weather. It takes the children to school, hauls the milk to town every morning, and in gemeral is used as a truck whenever the occasion arises. It is minus mud guards, top, windshield, and is always getting stuck in the mud. It gives a few extra shivers in cold weather and a long groan when it hits mud — but it arrives. The rich man’s Ford has a steam heated garage, or when its owner goes to the office it is left in one down town. It has a stall, bath and shine every day, it is overhauled every month and has bolts tightened to insure its owner from unnecessary squeaks. It is re- splendant in the glory of a flower holder, cigar lighter, self-starter, seat covers, and any number of other accessories that make it look like a Rolls-Royce with a superiority complex. And last but not least we have the college Ford. It is gor- geously decorated with signs and a network of wire which is used for all needed repairs. It has a fire ax, fire hose, trunk, and lantern for tail light. It always carries more than its share in passengers and will make twenty-five miles per hour down hill. It is minus a horn, lights, top, windshield. In fact, it is minus everything that makes a car, and hits on only three cylinders when it goes at all. It is the next victim for the junk man. Regardless of the type, the Ford reminds one of the good natured person who is never taken seriously, but who in spite of all jokes grins and goes rambling along in a most unconcerned way. T unstall Smith ’29.

LITERATURE THE ORIOLE Page 66 ]f HEN we speak of the word Literature we at once think of something beautiful — either a beautiful verse or the life of an ideal person. Literature is, as we know, the highest of all the arts, even greater than music, which I am sure appeals to all of us. Literature differs from other subjects in that we can enjoy it at all times in school or out. We can bury ourselves in it for a whole afternoon, forgetting that we are liv ing in our great world of today, but with people who lived many years before us. We are enjoy- ing their pleasures with them, sharing their dangers. It is, as the great writer Carlyle said, through books that the past speaks to us. Through Literature, Nature, God’s great out of doors, is re- vealed. The beauty of the trees, the birds, and the flowers is shown. We know all these things are lovely but the poets make them seem so much more beautiful than we ourselves could ever imagine. Literature reveals to us the life of the most cultured and re- fined men and women — not only their great deeds, but their person- alities and ideas of life. Through one’s writing we can tell just what kind of a person he was, for it has been said that Literature is the only true history of the soul. We have all kinds of histories which tell all about the great wars throughout the ages, the great deeds ot man, but even then we know nothing of them inwardly or of their personalities or ideas of life. Let us take Washington as an example, who is called the Father of his Country and whose memory is loved and cherished by every true American. When we read of him in histories we think of him first as a little boy who cut down a cherry tree, next as a great military leader, our first president, and one among the many great men who helped to form our nation. But when we study him in Literature he is altogether a different character; he seems more hu- man, his truthfulness, his sincerity, and his humor are expressed; he himself is expressed. Literature is something that will live on and on throughout the ages. It has lived in the past, and people enjoyed it; we of today are enjoying it, and the people who are to live after us will enjoy it. Why should we not love anything valued so highly, something that will never die, and which shows the attainment of the very highest ob- ject of human culture? Literature is the light of the world; the progress ot nations has been attributed to its storehouse of wealth. Freeda Turpin ' 29.

Page 68 {?• T H E O R I O L E CICERO’S FOUR ORATIONS E Ciceros lived in a large and modern five story apart- ment house on the Palatine. On the floor below lived Catiline. On the floor above lived Archias, who often kept Laurentia and Tullia occupied by reading poetry to them till Cicero slipped out — a thing for which Cicero gratefully defended him in his “Pro Archia.” M arcus Tullius Cicero, head of the house (?), is pacing the floor, kicking over foot-stools, bumping into tables and chairs, and stumbling over rugs, while the odor of delicious toast and percolating coffee pervades the room from the floor below. “O Di Immortales! Doesn’t that moron Catiline know any- thing? O J upiter, give me strength to keep on my diet! Isn’t it enough to stick around closer’n fly paper when I do get Maria to myself? And to best it all Laurentia is going to stop my allowance unless I come on to Pompeii: just when I am becoming the best dancer at the “Night Owl,” and that’s the biggest night club in Rome. Hector Pompelius! Why on earth did I introduce him to her?” At this point he is interrupted by a slave — “Whatnow, Julius?” “I bring a letter, Sir, from Catiline and one from your wife, just come by the fastest runner.” “Give them to me and make your exit snappy!” Cicero reads the letters and groans. “O Di Immortales, give me strength! Cati- line has eloped with Maria and has persuaded Laurentia tocomehome. O Ye Gods! Jumping goldfishes! Help me to get revenge!” cried Cicero as he got out pencil and paper and wrote his four orations against Catiline. Nell P, Bowles ’29,
