It was a very windy, cold day in March, one of those days when it seems that everything goes wrong, when your coHee isn't hot, the fire just won't seem to burn. It was just such a dreary, disagreeable day as this, and it seemed as if I were in for a first rate it of "blues" It was too cold to go out of doors, the wind was literally chasing and howling wildly around the corners of buildings. All the family had gone away for a week, leaving me alone in the cavernous house with only the dog for a companion. Not being used to this it was not easy for me to Hnd a suitable way of amusing myself. ' I-for a short While I contented myself by looking from the kitchen win- dow into the garden, watching the wind toss the leaves and flowers about, but hnally this grew monotonous. Then I shifted my lookout to the front room windows and stood for some time watching a man whose coat was blowing open as he chased his hat which was being tossed about by the wind. If a few more events like this had happened, they might have served to keep me amused for a while, at least, but as it was so disagreeably cold out of doors, the streets were almost deserted with the exception of an occasional automobile or two. I Hnally turned to the armchair by the hreside where a bright fire burn- ed and prepared to curl up comfortably to take a nap, when my eyes fell upon a book lying on the library table nearby, the title of which was"Little Wo111en." I decided, by sudden inspiration, to read, not having done so in quite a while. Before I realized it I was, in my imagination, a victim of Laurie's pranks, a pal to the boisterous joe, watching prim Beth with amusement, and trying to solve Meg's difflculties-forgetting my lonesorneness entirely. The characters in the story were so optimistic and pleasant that the mood seemed to become infectious and the out-of-door world seemed to take on a brighter outlook. 53

In A K 'jg 1 se., 1 5 - l ww sail GB11 Numan EOPLE are constantly remarking that they observe this or that feature of the human face more than the other. More generally it is the eyes that command attentiong sometimes the mouth. Occasionally someone will be found who declares that he notices hands hrst and chiefly. For myself , I think the eyebrow is a fascinating feature, which by having its direction turned a hair's breadth, or its distance from the eyes altered by a fraction of an inch, can change the expression of the whole countenance. The ear has a humor of its own and can delight or amuse by its angle and size. But of all the neglected and unsung features, the nose has the fewest lovers. It occupies the central position, it covers the largest territory, it shows the most amazing varietyg yet it shares the fate of all obvious and unchanging things-it is ignored or passed over with a reference to its size and its general direction. I have never read a poem written to a nose. In Browning's poem called "A Face," he speaks of a girl's lips, her neck, hands, and chin, but the nose, a necessity in any prohle, is not even mentioned. There are various reasons why more is not said about noses. In the hrst place, they are always the same, and in the second place, beautiful noses are so rare. There are many lovely eyes, and finely cut mouths, but the discovery of a really beautiful nose is an event of a lifetime. Some noses are too long, some, not long enough. . Hazlitt in his well-known description of Coleridge says: "I-Iis nose was small, feeble, nothing." Eloise Bowling, '35. Flum Svnuanna The moon is shining bright on high, The stars, like rliamoiizls, gleaming, The milky way jlows 'cross the sky, The siimmev' night lies alreamiizg. A las, the trees are now all bare, The milky way 110 more doth flow, Bu! the stars still shine cmd the 11io01i's slill lhere, And S1l77I77l67',S asleep beneath the snow. 52 Pauline Wygal, '35.

VV hen I finally arose from my chair I was startled to hear the hall clock strike the hour of two, thus discovering that I had been reading for almost four hours. How different everything seemedg the Weather no longer had a gloomy effect upon me, and the wind seemed to Whistle a challenge for me to come outside for a frolic, but my book and the fireside beckoned to me. Throwing another log on the fire, I settled myself comfortably to enjoy the remainder of the afternoon among my book friends, with nothing to cut into my thoughts but the merry crackling of the burning logs and the Whist- ling of the wind around the corners of the house. .
