A I-IORRIBLE EXPERIENCE In my younger days I was a good--looking, respectable shirt. But now I am used only as a gun rag. The ignominity of my position is terrible. I can remember when I was in a furnishing store waiting to be purchased by so-me discriminating customer. After being on display for some weeks, I was purchased by a young man. My next recollection was that of being on the back of a cadet at S. M. A. After being worn for several days, I was cast into a laundry bag. In the bag were several other pieces of undergarments. I noticed their bleached faces and wondered what was the matter. Upon questioning them, I found that we were to go through more torture than was in the Spanish Inquisition-this S. M. A. Laundry. In time we were taken to the laundry. I-Iere I was roughly shaken out and inspected by a man who, as I was told, had been brought all the way from China to attend to this business. I was given a number and roughly carted to the next room. Oh, the agonized shrieks that rent the air as I went in. I was shocked with wonderment, being ignorant of what was going to happen. I was cast into a big tub of biting liquid and when I was taken out there were several holes through me. I was roughly dried and carted to the presing room. In a little while a girl picked me up and prepared to press QU me. Ohyhow I hate to think of that terrible time. It was the ultimate cause of my downfall. However, I waslstarted through the presser. I shrieked! I moaned! I yelled! but to no avail. The heartless woman continued unheeding, and I continued to pass through. Horrors! I felt one button being slowly crushed then another and so ong then darkness and obliviong unable to stand the strain any longer, I had fainted. When I came to I found that I was totally in shreds and possessed but one half button. Of course, I am now of no service whatsoever, so here I am a common gun cleaner. Oh, woe is me! - S. M. K. '2l. Did you know that Harvey Lincoln Reed had been to a R. O. T. C. Camp? and that Paget was second in command of Company D. Money talks, because it has a woman's head on it. Free advice from the instructors is wo-rth just what it costs-that is to say, "A Fair exchange is no robbery." E

COULD IT BE POSSIBLE? I-Ier head was on my shoulder, I-Ier hair against my cheek, VVhiiach should haveimade me bolder, Though I was very far from meek. I guessed that restful slumber, I-Iad closed her starry eyes, And kisses would out-number, Should be my luscious prize. But even in tempting fashion, Her reddish lips were perched, I viewed them with dispassion, And with sobs she almost burst. And there I was distracted, I My gaze was on the fire, To kiss this made attractive, I really evinced no desire. Now donlt get mad and spiely, About this queer display, It could happen, really, It didn't any way. A R. B. c. Have you ever noticed that it seems healthier for a girl's audience when she keeps her mouth clo-sed-for more reasons than one. The shapliest thing I had ever seen-just the snappiest tilt to her hat- beautiful arms and shoulders, lightly covered with a tllmy waist ot pink-the modern demi-tasse skirt-the prettiest of calves adorned with the enchanting silk -a picture! And there was that fool tailor sticking pins in her.
