Q)ew The dew Has covered the grass Like a silver shadow, As stlent and unseen As the opening of flower buds. In the early morn It will sparkle like diamonds When the sun ' s joyous eye First peeps o ' er the hill. After that it will be as a gentle sigh Breathed ■ — Then gone. Its silver webs of lace will vanish Like a kindly deed — Forgotten. Miriam Br alley, ’32.

Tropical Vight ' HE SUN, a small red orb in the distance, had just been ex- tinguished in the deep blue Pacific. I looked out over the lagoon, where small tropical bats winged their way back and forth darting now and then close to the water in search of the millions of small tropical insects. Swiftly, like a blanket, darkness enveloped the island. The birds chirped sleepily in their nests as the gentle wind swayed the tree tops, and with their song there was blended the faint murmur of the billowing beach grass as the wind swept through it, and the gentle “lap lap” of the water on the beach completed nature’s song. In the fast dimming light the spicy odor of the jungle grew sweeter and the shadow of the trees on the grass grew vague and less distinct, then vanished altogether — the night had come. Slowly I arose and walked down the beach to the small native town, the dirty lanterns with which it was lit making it stand out like an oasis of light in the desert of darkness. Slowly f walked down the narrow, crook- ed street, halting here and there in the tea rooms which were filled with crowds of women clad in flimsy dresses, and men in white, who swayed in rhythmic motion to the tunes of the native musicians. Seating myself at a corner table, I slowly sipped the tepid wine, and allowed my thoughts to wander back to the cities filled with crowds of men and women who moved with clock-like regularity. Their lives were spent futilely clutching after a few paltry dollars. Once again I turned my steps toward the beach, where, lying on my back, 1 watched the crescent-shaped tropical moon shining through the branches of a giant palm upon the waters of the lagoon below. A cloud passed across the moon weirdly tingeing the waves that rolled upon the beach. The cloud passed leaving the waves a dark blue but al- ways tipped with silver. No longer did I think of home, or my friends, nor did I wish to see them again. I did not know it then, but 1 had fallen entirely under the spell of the tropics. Hal Painter , ' 31 . ( 5 )

Smiles ' HERE are smiles that make me happy, there are smiles that make me blue.” Watch some of the smiles that are flashed your way. Now, there’s the friendly smile accompanied by twinkling eyes. It is a smile that makes you warm inside and helps to brighten an otherwise dreary day. In direct contrast to this smile the one none of us like to think about a politely upturned mouth but not a single trace of a smile in the eyes. This sends a slight shiver through you and reminds you of an empty house with vacant, staring windows. And then the sad smile, one in which laughter and tears are mingled, one which usually comes from a person who has had a great sorrow, yet has the happy faculty of being able to smile. Then there’s the slightly triumphant smile, or should we say “smirk?” accompanied by a sort of steely glitter in the eyes, that somehow calls to mind a fat, complacent cat after having swallowed a canary. Non-discriminating is a baby’s smile — a baby with its wide, innocent eyes regards the whole world as its friend. A baby usually smiles for no good reason at all, but did you know that when a baby smiles in its sleep an angel is kissing it? A little baby’s smile is quite contagious, sparkling, bubbling — filled with the joy of living that brings to mind the sunlight flittering through a screen of leaves on a laughing brook. To me an elderly person’s smile is above them all. It has been tem- pered by the storms of life; it knows the strength and weaknesses of mankind and there is always a look of quiet waiting in the old person’s eyes. Mark Twain said, “Let us so live that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry.” And if a person carries a ready smile aren’t we always glad to see that person? There are smiles and smiles and smiles — for everyone has his own particular one. Remember that ‘‘The world is good-natured to people who are good-natured.” Charlotte Saunders, ’j2.
