becomes hoarse and raucous. I've often heard them shout "Beware the ides of March," "I come to bury Caesar," "The quality of mercy is not strained," etc. Such idiotic phrases do not make sense to me. Who, or what was ides? VVhat and how much was the quality of mercy, and who in the world was that guy, Caesar? In these periods of insanity you must treat the teachers indulgently and listen meeklyg otherwise they may become en- raged and positively violent, in which case you may be sure of and "E" or an "F," . But after all's said and done you should treat these poor teachers kindly because they must have a hard time trying to keep their so-called knowledge intact. Poor souls, I pity them . . . . . wonder if I'll ever be a teacher. Garnett Schrader-'36. THE BARK OF A SQUIRREL WI ost of you long for summer to come, And make plans for things you'll do When there's no more school, and that old, swimming pool Seems to beckon to each of you. Butgive me those days when the summer fades :And the frost on the ground does spark, Out before dawn, I listen and long To hear that old squirrel bark. Each nerve is taut as a banjo string, As I sit there numb -with cold, But I can't resist when I hear that call. It ajects both young and old. So you may have your summer days And listen to the song of the lark, But as for me, I 'll take the ones When I hear the old squirrel bark. Chester Hall-'36. I

TI-IE IMPORTANCE OF TIME BIG, powerful car roars down the highway toward the airport. If the gentleman in the back seat does not reach New York by evening, or before the offices close for the day, he will not be able to close a deal that may mean thousands of dollars for him. The plane takes off from San Francisco, California, around eight o'clock in the morning and before six that evening it is coming in for a landing at New York. The man fulfills his requirements and signs the contract. Today time means no more to the American people than it did fifty or seventy-tive years ago. But today with our modern equipment in communication and in transportation more of our time is being used because we have more things to do. A person should never spend an idle minute. If he has nothing to be doing, his time should not be wasted. There are not many people today who do waste their time. To a person when he has nothing else to do, reading is very profitable, if it is the right kind of reading, because it affects nearly every phase of life. I believe that time is the most important element in modern civilization. Still, even if this is true, time is not so important as to try to beat a red light to try to save a few minutes or to race a train to a crossing or to speed through a school zone. This type of time saving causes many deaths and although time is important, all traffic rules and cautions to slow down this life, should be obeyed. Edward Dent-'36, ARE TEACHERS SANE? RE TEACHERS sane? I've often wondered. If not actually insane they are, at best, Uidiotically sane with lucid intervals of lunacyf' These clear moments are few and far between. They must be some kind of educated machines without a vestige of a heart, or they may be victims of insomnia, whose sleepless nights cause them to get their grades mixed up, they often dish me out an "E" or an HF." Sometimes these machines slip a cog and lose out for a week or two. Other times they merely lose a needle and their voice
