The family insists upon getting "Lum and Abner" when I want Kate Smith, but I fix this. I change the wires, reducing the volume so that "Lum and Abner" will not come in. Mother says there is something funny about this, but still she really doesn't suspect the cause. After all, this operation does me very little good. Mother insists upon turning off the radio because she doesn't think the program is interesting. Ruby Richardson-l36. PARODY CBreathes there a man with soul so dead-Scottj Breathes there a girl with hair so straight Who never makes her fellow wait Until she combs each tangled strand- Who never has to stop and pose To rough her lips and' powder her nose Or manicure each tiny hand? If such there be, then praise her well, Because I think she's simply "swell"- Slender waist-line, well rounded hips- Lustrous lashes, carmine lips- Witliozlt her make-up, figure, or pose, A She looks like heck in her tightifllting clothes. Blake-up can give you a dash and a swirl, But only the brain can make the girl. And those who marry a powder puj' Find it's all they've got-and it ain't enough! Mary Cox-'36. CARELESSNESS J oe wouldn't listen, look, or stop. They towed his 'jlivoern to the shop. It didn't take a week or two To make the car look good as new,- But though they hunted high and low They found no extra parts for Joe. Eunice Hall-'36. I

RADIO AT MY HOUSE ORE THAN once when I have been in the middle of an English lesson I have heard the radio going full blast, a woman screaming for help, a pistol shooting, and a siren sounding-my little nephew enjoying "Dick Tracy, the Man Hunter." Such a situation not only is nerve racking but detracts your mind from what you are doing so that it is impos- sible to concentrate. Radios are terrible things sometimes. I, being a member of a rather large family, can say sincerely that a radio can be most annoying. In fact at times I wish we had no radio, and at other times I feel as if I would like to have one which I can always control. It is a usual thing in large families for each member to like something different in entertainment as well as in food, and so it is in my family. My father enjoys nothing but string music, his favorite program being the "Grand Old Opry" from W. QS. M. CNashvillej on Saturday nights. My mother has a fiair for Sym- phony Orchestras. My sister likes classical music. My little nephew likes drama, while I like o11ly jazz. It seems as if every time I turn the radio on a good jazz orchestra some one in the family will have in mind another program he wants to hear and just must get. Then I think if we only had a radio for each one I could get what I wanted, but I realize this is impossible as my father is no John D. Rockefeller, and besides with eight radios, my home would be a tower of Babel. If I can't hear what I like I would rather not hear anything. Our radio seems to have more static than anything else. It buzzes, pops and cracks continually. just as soon as I tune in on Glenn Gray or Guy Lombardo the radio starts its popping and cracking. At first I did not know what caused this. I thought perhaps the aerial or the ground wire was loose, but upon inspecting I found this not to be the case. I soon despaired of finding the trouble, so my only recourse was to cut the radio off. Later I found that when the wind was blowing the limbs of a tree would strike the aerial. Our radio, being an antique, is different from most radios. I find that switching the aerial and ground wire changes the volume.

A DIARY CIN IMMITATION OF SAMUEL PEPYSD March 17, 1936. Up betimes this morning and as I did see Big Ben had only seven thirty o'clock, did turn upon my other side and sleep soundly. Awoke again and did find a most satisfactory odor of coffee assailing my nostrils whereupon I did rise and drink of the beverage. I did notice rain pouring most heavily, whereupon did don my cloak and schoolward, but upon hnding school dis- missed did trod to Bunn's Sweete Shoppe where I did while the time away. Thence homeward and dined. Returned to the rain again charitymissioning with honorable father. An aged mulatto did complain bitterly that the heaven-sent water did damage his humble domicile until the lower floor did flood, whereupon noble parent did reply, "You must thank God you are a Baptist," and I did laugh heartily. Homeward to partake of evening re- past, thence to a theatre where I did most enjoy performance of Shirley Temple in "The Littlest Rebel," and so to bed. Easter Sunday-April 12, 1936. Upon having a disturbing dream did awake and was most glad to find myself alive. Did breakfast at six o'clock, thence to the Sunrise Service which I did think most beautiful but did cause me to yawn all day. Did then breakfast again and betook mineself to Sunday school, thence to church where I did accept the Holy Sacrament of the Lord's Supper. Homeward to dine, whereupon I did visit on an old acquaintance whom I had not seen for years. Back again to dine and did then render to a small audience a duet with mydear sistergthence to Bunn's Sweete Shoppe and until did become bored. Homeward, and so to bed. April 13, 1936. Up betimes and did haste me to school. Did work on English all through History class as I did not want Miss Bondu- rant to reward my efforts with a zero. In English class she did seem to appreciate my honest labor and did reward 'me most highly. After military-drilling my squad at recess, did journey Bunn's Sweete Shoppeward, as usual, to drink a Coca-Cola. Home and lunched. Back to school, and was most surprised to find Miss Blair, French teacher, yet absent. VV as more surprised to see Mr. Eckman struggling along in her place. French class over,I did trod homeward, and the weather being most warm and
