Sunday Ctwo Weeks after ithe opening of collegej-VVient to church this morn-
ing. After chu-rch read 500 pages of Adam Smith's "Wealth of Nations." This
is not requiired but I'm sure it will aid me greatly in "Groatism." Barker phoned
after dinner. He has his lesson-s fully prepared for Tihursday. Shucksl I've only
got mine pirepiasred as far as Tuesday. Had a very light supper. Mother is Worried
about my nerves, thinking I am overstudying. Ohl if I could but make her under-
stand-she's bound to spoil my pleasure. Studied later than usual but finally tucked
in my little 'covers at 9 o'clock. I managed to smuggle a book to bed and Nloither
nearly caught me when Sh-e brought in my bread and milk. llly conscience is troubled
with those horrible mid-y-ears which are only flour months away.

again with my professors. just think of iitl-I hiavenlt seen them sinoe Siaturdiayl

to the conclusion th-at she is right. Tlhen again, the night air is bad for young folks.
Howlever, my time was spenst profitably memorizing Saturdayls lessons. Cried my-
self to sleep as lVIofther had no sugar for my bread and milk.
Tuesday.-Overslept this morning, not releasing myself from the farms of Mor-
pheus uncil 6:15. But I had my last long look at my books before attending class,
sacrificing my breakfast. Barker and Bowman were absent from Government class
this morning. I wonder if fthey used this time for study. Only had 16 clean pages
left in my notebook so was uiniable to take down only 26 of Judge hIow'er's lecture. To-
day's lesson in Ainithropology was extnemely difficult so I accepted fthe only alterna-
tive and 'committed to memory the whole 71 pages. Quite a task-but 'then the
old ad-age says, "Anything that is worth doing at all, is worth doing vuellf, Studied
in th-e library all afternoon with Nelson. Heard various remarks by some of the
boys concerning "alcove" and Umoviel' courses but I am sure they wer-e not included
in my curriculum. Therefore, they are of no interest to me wih-atsoever, because
"Philosophy is the Guide of Life." Nelson left at 5 but his departure only urged
me on in my craving for knowledge. I had just completed the 4-th volume of Profes-
sor Zachery Hiram Demosthenies' survey of Auto-Teleology when the harsh and
unsympathetic janitor informed me that it wias closing hour and ordered me out. I
intend to bring this matter before the Faculty-Student Council and seek a remission
of my tuition. Got home late for supper. lVIother was furious, making me stand
in the corner of my bedroom for yi hour. However, the time passed swiftly and
pleasantly for I had my Government notes in my pockets. Ate supper and retired
to the seclusion of my room. lldy curiosity overcame my yearning for knowledge
and I deviated from my only joy in life to read the 'fljolice Gazette." VVhat horrible
pictures!! Like the man I am, I burned 'ilt after glancing at the first two pages and
now am fully convinced that "Philosophy is -the G-uide of Life." Studied the rest
o-f the evening, retiring at 9:30 o'clock with a week from Wednesdayls lessons all
Wednesday.-Wias dressed by 6:50 and ready to go up to classes. It was rain-
in-g in torrents so Mother insisted on my wearing my new rubber boots that were
given me for my birthday. I hated to for I knew that the rain would spoil the shine
of the new rubber. Took 4 umbrellas up to classes in case 'any of my professors
needed them. They didn't, but those to whom I spoke appreciated it muchly, espe-
cially Mr. Andrews, and I'm glad of ilt siince my gra-de in Argumentation is Sitill
only B-I-. As usual, I knew my lesson by heart but the boys ridiculed me some
more. However, I'm broad-minded enough not to be bothered because it :is only
"sour grapes" on their part. Three were absent from classes all morning. My!
but I can't possibly conceive how college students wilfully 'absent themselves from
even one recifcation. Barker and I are just the opposite--we love hooks ,and all things
