pertaining to knowedge. Had a nioe dinner to-day, but I Wish Mother would let
me have coffee like Dad. But wl1at's the use? I suppose milk is better than coffee
for young folks. Wen.t to the lVIovies in the afternoon with Mother. We didn't
stay Ito see the whole show, our 34c for tickets being spent just to see a oneareel
Heniry Ford Educational Feature. Studied the rest of this day, had my bread and
hot milk and then went 'to bed. Was very tired, which explains the brevity of the
Thursdayf.-Washed my face this morning and arte breakfast. Didnlt need to
review my lessons so went up to class in case any of the professors needed someone
to carry chairs or sweep the floors. You see the janitors are ofttimes negligent.
Prof. Gfroat didnlt wanut any chaimrs butt asked me to run over to Winooski for a
"Bolsheviki News." Madre excellent recitations in all my classes with the exception
of Transportation. I told Professor Tostlebe the amount of dust accumulated on
the R. R. ties every six months, but then he asked me the amount accumulated every
year. Tlhat question certainly vwasn't fair as the book didn't give the figures for a
year. He wfarned me to be practicable but I can't understand just what he means.
I feel like protesting to the Faculty but hate to disturb them. Hail lunch in the Col-
lege Store and never enjoyed those 3 sticks of gum as much before. Exercised stren-
uously to-day, playing 3 games of "old maidn with Daisy. On-ce when I was deal-
ing my hand touched her sleeve-land, oh what a thrill! I'rn glad that doesn't happen
very often because it would be most detrimental to my powers of concentration for
studying. Wenut to a church supper this evening. Didn't enjoy the music because
the pi-anist shrugged his shoulders while playing the hymns., Dianicin-g followed, so I
left-I oan'-t stan-d that horrible jazz music. Stopped at the oHice of the Majestic
Theatre on the Way home for the month's program. Hurrah! There's going to
be another educational feature in 3 Weeks. Was sick to my "tummy" and had to
go to bed. just think-only got in 3 hours of study all to-day. It's a shame the
Way I waste mytime!
Friday.-An adorable morning-makes me feel so full of life. Had breakfast
and washed the disfh-es. Then I wen-t to my nursery and took my little express cart.
I had so many books to take to -classes it was simply necessary for me to use it. It
comes in handy even when I'm not in a playful mood. Professor Emerson is 'going
to substitute my notes for his next year for he says mine are much longer. Perhaps
if I let him bake ith-em I'1l be able to get a special permit to remain in the Library
after closing time. Had dinner at the Hash House and it was a wonderj The
coffee was so good I took some home in a b-ag. Studied m.0Sit of the afternoon on
IVLilinary Science. H-and ia chat with Dean Perkins late this afternoon and in his
opinion twro hours' p-reparation should be spenit on each lesson daily. That means
I should spend at least 8 hours every day in study. Gosh! but I'm glad lVIother

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

doesn't know that because I'rn sure my time spent every day in studying averages
at least I5 minutes less than that. Took my music lesson this evening. The teacher
told me that in about IO years I'11 be the best exponent of "Sweet Potastofen playing
in the city. After that I had my hair cut-now I'll hate to go to class to-morrow and
hear the boyls laugh at the "Plumbers Haircut" as they term it. Studied until bed-
time, having my bread and mlilk before retiring.
Saturday.-Hu-rrahl-ithe Week end is here and I can concentrate at last on
my studies. Hfad breakfast early. I went down town to buy ta new red bow tie.
Easter :is coming after mid-years and I love to look neat. Vlient upito class and
talked over the Presidenrtial Campaign with Professor Emerson. He looked at me
very oddly when I -told him that in my opinion Governor Clement was the most
likely candidate. But look at the advertising he is getting! Now I've studied ad-
vertising enough ito know that it would be applicable in this case. "There's no use
studying if I don't apply the principles." Had a very high honor conferred upon
me to-day when I received an invitation to the Y. NI. C. A. Reception. lVIotther
feels so proud about it that she is going to have it framed and hung over the family
clock. At the bottom it read HR. S. V. Pf, and I have finally figured it out to mean
"Reserved Seats for Vermont Police." I-Iad a free period this morning so went around
dusting the professors' chairs. I thoughft one of 'them saw me but fou-nd out it was
only one of those negligent janitors laughing his head off at my efforts. I was so
humorous toediayl-everyone was laughing. It was either my haircut or my hidden
cleverness, and I'm sure it was the latter as lldother says I have a lot of it. I even
overheard someone say it wasnit hidden, but buried. After much pleading Nlloither
gave me permission to go :to fthe lVIovies and I had the grandest time in the front
row whistling and yellinig. Had an early supper and retired -to the seclusion of
my room. Got my books and notes ready and felt so happy. Typed all my notes
but had the greatest difficulty typing 'Et miap. I turned the paper every which way
and kept pressing -the diash key. It took a long time but when completed, 'offered such
a pleasing sight to the eye. After finishing la. week from Frid:ay,s lesson I felt I h-ad
accompished a lilttle and needed excitement. -So I searched in back of my bureau
for so-me -corn husks and filled ian old pipe. Oh, wasn't I ia wicked boy! Af-ter the
third puff I felt my punishment oorning and ran downstairs to confess :to lylother.
She forgave me, telling me to go to bed and thi-nk more of my lessons from now on.
I was fully repentant for my sin and have decided not to waste any of my time as
I have done this last week.
Therefore, upon my bended knees, I promise and vow, this coming week, to
be an obedient son, to study f-aithfully, rand to do justice to my Alma llliater, my
Professors, my parents, and myself.
