WHATS THE USE OF WORRYING? E ALL like a good joker, do we not? It makes little difference what kind of predicament we get into if we have a jolly fun-maker along with us. A Hat tire, for instance, becomes only an origin for a series of side-splitting remarks. A, witty happy-go-lucky is the first necessity in a crowd which is out for fun. It takes someone above the ordinary to be a joker. Along with his being quick-thoughted he must be able to throw off his own worries and then rid the other fellow of his thoughts about hardships. Likewise, it takes someone above the ordinary to worry-at any rate to worry a great deal. He ignores little Witty or foolish remarks and ponders over things about which the usual person would think little or nothing. Naturally we do not want to be pessimists and with a square face always look on the dark side of everything, but we very often benefit from a little' worry. VVe all do our part of worrying. For instance, we can refer to our classes in school. Many of us worry a little all along through the semester while a few prefer to sleep or play all of this time and as a result, wake up just before examinations and do their part. Doubtless we proiit by these experiences because they show us beginnings of what we shall be forced to face in later life. "Wlzat's the use of worrying? I if never was worlli 'wlzileg So, pack up your troubles in your old kit bag and Smile! Smile! Smile!" VVe have all heard the little cheer-up song from which these lines were take. Obviously the song is intended for those un- happy soldier boys who bravely face the horrors of war. Not many of these soldiers could "pack up their troubles in an old kit bag," but some people worry about such simple, little things that it does seem that their worries could be packed away in a con- tainer of this size. According to my opinion negroes are the happiest people in the world. Most of them care little for luxuries. A negro woman's jewelry, as a general rule, consists of a pair of the "most

beautiful, I did trod slowly and gather Violets. Supped, and did attend a meeting of our Junior Music Club. Homeward, and so to bed. April 14, 1936. Up Very late and did betake myself to school half-dressed. Did endure History and English class with a right good will but for relief did rush to Tyler's Where I did consume a Coca-Cola. Homeward, dined, and returned to French class, still under direc- tion of Hon. Mr. Eckman. After school did go to visit a neighbor child who is in ill health. Supped, bathed and scoured my hair, and so to bed. Did arise reluctantly and was most sleepy. journeyed school- ward, and was little surprised to note that perhaps 90 per cent of the male population was absent. This reminded me that fishing season opened today. After classes did journey home- ward and prepare supper. Did clean the dishes, and so to bed. Mary Cox-'36. THE TRAILING ARBUTUS The very wake of spring will bring The fragrance of the flowers, So sweet it always seeins to cling Among the lofty towers. Around the trunks of stumps and trees This creeping flower is found, And whispering softly to the bees Makes neither move nor sound. It seems as though long sujering years Have made its soul so kind, T il' every creature, bird or beast, Is welcomed by this vine. For its two colors it selected The loveliest of the soil, And now the pink and white erected Live on through days of toil. Dorothy Klddmyjg. I lim ,

expensive" of Roses' or any other store of like valuables, and "gold earrings," I know nothing of the negro men's luxuries. Probably this is about how much most of them know about such things. It seems that negroes take more interest in their work for us than they do in their work for themselves. In the kitchen old fat Sue Hnds the things which her mistress grumbles about just mere trifles. And, Yum! Yum! can she hx some "country messes-not unlike those neat-handed Phyllis dressesf' Out in the fields old Uncle N oak proves a hatful of fun for his co-workers and passers-by-in fact anyone who is interested. But, the joy of the whole negro generation overflows when watermelons go "plunk." I wish to join in on the chorus with the happy-go-luckies of the world by saying that there is no use of Worrying. I..et's all join in and "laugh and grow fat," or probably some of us had better say, "laugh and stay fat." n Helen Willis-'36. MEDITATION I arn no good at writingg I have no pen or ink. But give rne an honr within a cool bower And I 'll show you how to think. I love to sit to' ponder Upon a question dear- Wliat is this life, with its love and strife? The answer is yet to appear. I know in this wide world over There're people who gaily sing- They never mourn, or look forlorn, Nor think what tomorrow inay bring. To see the light of Heaven, I hope they'll east their heads up And open their eyes, and look with surprise Upon a new day of hope. The light is slowly diniining, I no longer see the hill. The sun is gone,' I linger on- I sit and ponder still. ' Garnett Schrader-'36.
