Cnce upon a time there lived a little old man who
spent all his life making spirits. Most of the spirits he
made were put in big barrels and only let out when
people felt thirsty, and thenthey were swallowed up
and that was the end of them. One day three of
my brothers and I were sitting on top of a mugful of
other spirits all covered up with white fluffy stuff, when
all of a sudden,just when we were about to be swallowed
up, a great big, wise old owl came by and saved our
lives. We grabbed hold of his feat ers as he swooped
down and flew away with him. He's taken very
good care of us ever since-but 'll hear all about
our adventures later-I just wanted to tell you this
much of the story now because a lot of people have the
Q, wrong notion about us. Some say we're "ideas"
the old brewer had one night about "Higher Learning
for the Female", but that's silly, isn't it? We're just
spirits like the ones in the barrels only we don't get
swallowed up because the owl takes care of us.
Please don't believe anything else.
How THE oWL TAKES CARE OF us
The owl takes care of us, but you musn't think he
does it in an ordinary way. He couldn't possibly, you
see, because we aren't little owls. Now if you listen
quietly l'll tell you just what happened: When he res-

cued my brothers and me, he tookl us away from the
rest of the world to LEARNING LAND where there ere
all sorts of funny castles for us to play in. This
was where the owl lived, so after setting us down on the
ground, he flew into his beautiful big tree on the side
of a hill and left us to explore our new home by our-
selves. We found wonderful toys in the castles like
books, and beakers, and numbers, and pictures, and
pianos, and animals. Just as we were beginning
to play with them all, as great army of very serious
ogre-like people loomed up out of nowhere and
frightened us so much that we didn't dare move or even
smile.They were all dressed in long black things and each
one carried a big red pencil. "We are the Faculty", they
But we were so proud of our bright-colored
said ii a gollow voice. "We are going to mark you."
suits t at we didn't want them to be scratched up, so
we were very frightened and wanted to die. Butjust then
the owl flew down from his tree and whispered a secret
about these strange people. He said they had wonderful
things hidden underthe flat things with tassels thatdan-
gled in their eyes, and he promised we could have some
of those wonderful things if we played with all the
toys just the way they wanted us to, a Fi if we were very
good they'd give us little gold keysdn lg That sounded
exciting, and we smiled at the "fa ties" and they
smiled back even nicer, and we weren't afraid any more.

IN WHICH I FEATURE OUR CHARACTERISTICS
I suppose you've been wondering what our names are,
and I suppose I really ought to tell you, but I'm not
going to 'cause I think you'd have more fun if you
guessed. All four of us dress exactly alike except
that each of us has a different color--green, yellow,
blue or red-and once a year we trade suits so we
won't get tired of wearing the same color all the time.
My youngest brother is the smallest of all and not
very healthy, but he's very charming 'cause he has
great wide eyes in a little meek face, and he always
says hello to everyone he passes as he dances about
in his bright shiny new shoes. :Another one of my
brothers is very gay and carefree. Sometimes he is very
WIZTEIEEIQTITEF 25.121 ITEC
beautiful and when he is looking his best he wears a
daisy in his cap. Most people envy my oldest
brother because he doesn't seem to have anything to
do except curl up behind "Screen Romances" and sing
all night to the moon: "Ch prom, prom, promise me a
glass of b-b-b-bromoseltzer!" Now there's only
me left to talk aboutg l'm getting old and a little dwarf
called Worry has dug great ditches across myforehead.
l hide myself away in the long empty drawers of the
"vocational" bureau and I get very lonesome waiting
for someone to slip the magic ring on my finger which
will set me free.
IN WHICH I CARICATURIZE MY DQMINANT FEATURES
HAVE never tried to write an autobiography before.
You see, it's not one of the "subjects" in the king-
dom where I live so I'm not very well acquainted
with its personality. But I've been told to try, there-
fore bear with me. First of all, I live in a big big
castle which was supposed to look like a palace
called the Tzzilerief, but which somehow developed
I a few distinct idiosyncrasies of its own. It has lots
C1411 Mfffffff-' LUCIAN GHER and lots of rooms and you'll find me in almost all of
them. I wouldn't really need so much space for myself ifl were just an ordinary
person, but there are so many sides to my indefatigable personality that I
have to divide into three's and catalogue my traits in alley-ways. I even have
to give myself lots of different names to
keep from getting confused when people
refer to my various capacities. For in-
stance, whenever I take a deep breath and
stumble over it so the rest of my little
selves will come to order and behave
properly, I am called 'ISneeze". That
means I'm boss and I have to get myself
together and spread all over the third
floor in pajamas to hear myself talk. It's
loads of fun, and I feel very important,
but I like to be called "Betty" or jane" 1
Hanormjf Clair Member: RICHARD A. E. BROOKS
or "Peggy" just as well, 'cause then I can act natural and nobody cares.
In most respects I'm just like my brothers. I'm very class conscious, I worry
about my A B QC's and D'sD, and I flirt with a Major, Qwho doesn't wear brass
buttons and is very tedious sometimes because he puts so much emphasis on
the mindj I-Ie'd be fun if it weren't for the fact that he insists upon my writing
him a fifty-page letter of recommendation before he'll apply for the desired

certificateg and what's Worse, he has a funny notion that one of those black-
govvned chaperones ought to pass an approval on it. There are moments in
our relation ship when I feel like throwing him overboard or at least dropping
a note to him in the unstamped saying: Deezr Tberezef, Left not fpoil eoefjfrhing
by being too comprehensive. Fezitb ezlone oem move mozezztezim. Youre, tS'enio1'.
Qccasionally I indulge inaweek-end
,vocation and devote my all to the
security business, but the dividends
are few and far between, especially
when the interest is low, so Mondays
are always blue and rind the Major
and me "retreating" from the battle
of brains to drown our sorrow in
commodity buns. It's at times such as
this that I feel like a mouldy piece of
the Middle Ages catching classical
dust in a cloistered conservatory. I FIRST LADY i
wouldnt mind being on the point of disintegration ifI had some reliable Life

Some people may call me
grave and old, but I know all the time they secretly envy me because I have
a sacred band inside that plays a song nobody else can sing, and when I get
bored with the Major or "Pettin' at the Juliet" I can go out with Suloe and
parade my good spirits throughout the Land. There was a time when Suloe
and I used to have an annual shouting bout in the Libe, but the owl has
since decided that the Sovereign Mistress of True Melancholy should rest in
peace with never a sound save snores and groans to break her honored silence.
I have a sacred number too, which is one of those things you like so much

as "woes", and the 5 means 5
o'clock in the morning when the
radiators begin to hammer away
at my sleepy head, and the air is
blue with the smoke of 500
cigarettes. Ordinarily my dwell-
ing is so cluttered up with
books and paper, ash-trays and dead corsages, dust, darkness, and general
chaotic depression that there is scarcely any room for thought. If ever there
if a spark of intellect, it usually lands in the little pink vvastebasket and burns
to a bad end unless illegally tossed out of the vvindovv. Any evening on which
such a disaster occurs might be termed "The Night of the Burning Missile."

enthusiasm of my little-brother advisees with the air of a superior's amusement
at the youngster vvho is cheerful because he doesn't knovv vvhat's in store for
him, but underneath my sometimes cynical grumblings and restless discontent
is a faint dread of the alluring "World of rain and no rubbers," and a
sincere attachment to the mysteries and profesrarer of Learning Land . . .
l guess l'd better stop talking now for avvhile and let you look at all the
pretty pictures of me. When you've finished l'll tell you about my brothers
and what we all do from September till june.

uxiofz is an odd fellow. I-Ie's past the stage where he can make a claim to
N- fame by picking daisies, so he pulls the petals off instead and drops them
in a tankard to flavor his beer with the bitter and sweet of True Romance. For
days on end he sleeps tight in his room drunk with the dream of a Charles
Atlas physique and all that goes with it, tra la. Under the intoxicating in-
fluence of an unlimited number of leaves he trips hither and yon and revels in
returning to his bacchanalian nature of high spirits. During the rare intervals
when nothing ales him he can be seen, still thirsty, staggering to the well-
known Rocky fountain of knowledge for a "quick one" of Italian, Spanish,
English, French, etc.-but no Scotch, a lass! You'd think he'd be wild about,
and haunt the ginnasium, but not Junior!-not if he's only .mppoied to, but
doesn't have to! That would be a silly waste of time, besides, he's needed at
home because he's got just enough prestige to get away with being the boss
of his little dwelling.
Junior is a very restless spirit of cheer. He flirts with a Major as I do, but
he's terribly fickle and shifts his attention from one to another so often that
his chaperon has a hard time guiding his amorous energy. In his spare
moments he is supposed to look after the youngest in the family, but more
often than not he keeps his eyes on me instead, and counts the days until
spring when I begin to go barefoot so that he can step into my shoes.
All four of us have a wonderful time together, and not for all the world
would we ever consider leaving the owl for the old life "on tap."

It is with all good faith in your great interest in
Higher Education that I dare to think you would like
to be enlightened concerning what we do, at least dur-
ing eight months of the year.
On ordinary days we spend most of our time stewing
in a brew of Intellectual, Iso I am toldj, Curiosity which
does its best to kill us along with the cat, but somehow,
due to the remarkable amount of satisfaction we get
in obeying our feline impulses, doesn't quite. There are
times however when our healthy natures give way to
bacterian debauches and feverishly crawl between the
sheets of a Colonial Bughouse where lo! the angel of
the ward comes upon us and the sneezes of the ward
wheeze round about us and we are sore, but not afraid.
Such strange interludes are simply the exception which
proves the general rule of mind over-matter, and they
confine themselves to remaining few and far between
us and our liking. Once in a while, and it is of these
whiles that l am about to tell you, our Curiosity takes
off its horn-rimmed glasses, leaves its classes and goes
on a social spree.
N the beginning was the word, and the word Wasdchaos! And the late
September light shineth on dust and the dust revealeth a Lnberntory Mnnnnl
for Cornpnrnfirze Vertenrnre Annrarny, Deutsche Knltnrgefchichte, Fairchild, Furness,
and Buck, and Ferdrnnnei all Wrapped in a moth-eaten souvenir of Yale, and
The Meeiievnl Mind comprehendeth it not. So begins another Fall in the Owl
Kingdom, so we again turn the leaves of books while a hint of winter turns
the leaves of trees, and Miss Bacon fries in the heat of the spiders who sit
down beside her begging to change their courses. Bright hopes and uncon-
served energy pop out of trunks, boxes, decaying furniture, and forgotten
packages from Maisonette. If We're lucky the hopes stay with us longer than
the energy, but both are replaced frequently and satisfactorily by a late after-
noon Walk to the cider mill, more frequently and more satisfactorily by a Yale-
Princeton game, and most frequently but least satisfactorily by a reckoning
ofthe number ofdays till Thanksgiving-till Christmas. October and Novem-
ber find Monsieur Geology leading his little blue jeans over hill and dale in
searcha of Mika and no one in the world will stop him till he has gone far
enough away to call his journey work and his lunch a picnic.
HE season of dry-leaves-burning and gold-key yearning is ceremoniouslv
met with whole-hearted but unpracticed serenadingof "theiittest',bystrange
masses teeming with flashlights, banners, and good cheer. lt officially begins
with something called Convocation, which means or marks the Death of

bathing suits and shorts and the Resurrection ofthe Cap and Gown. On this
occasion l and all my little selves are mysteriously permitted for the first
time, to dress in mourning after the fashion of Schiaparelli and Academia-
just for whom or for what I'm not quite sure. It can't be that I am bereft of
anything very grievous because my younger brothers jealously envy and wist-
fully admire my unique attire. Perhaps they think the loss ofa youthful devotion
to the Simple-Simon attitude is a great thing. Personally I adore Simple-Simon
-we have a lot in common-and if it weren't for a scrap of sheepskin I'd admit
I wasn't dignified or impressive in-
stead of killing myself trying to keep
up appearances. Of course my young-
est brother finds out what a fake I am,
Qalmost as soon as I do myselflvvhen
he begins to ask me the same ques-
tions I asked when I first came, but
which I haven't thought of since and
couldn't possibly answer.
Convocation is a great day for the
"Faculties" too, because it's the
ROSALIE only chance they get, except for
Director 0fjzmi0rPm'ty.'Nm1cy Brmzflwz Commencement, to Parade their
prestige with a colorful degree of intelligence.
HERE comes an evening in October when little Junior throws a party for
Cheerful Cherub, and though we all go, only the honored member of the
family and his little selves are permitted to sit at card tables in the "orchestra"
and to stuff their incredibly capacious mouths with cider and doughnuts
during a pause in the free-for-all entertainment. Once upon a time, in 1937,

him in all the gloryof imported men withwhich First Hall alone is embellished.

atrocities in the audience, but they do not always gain the undivided attention

Ecismnan is full of important dates and one of them is stuffed with Glee.
Master Peirce and his colorful proteges at last tell us in loud sweet tones
the secret of themad rush to Skinner everyTuesday andThursdayevening.Those
in the audience who have known what it is to be left drinking coffee alone
after dinner, are generally moved to forgive the performers for their seemingly
too fervent interest in a bi-weekly, 7 205 P. M. warble. The Amherst Glee Club
with the Harvard Orchestra help tremendously to establish in the listeners
kindlier sentiments toward the whole racket of vocalization. "Gods Bottles"
too, even when sung about, have a way of smoothing things over.
The December rendition in Skinner is only one of three concerts given by
this group of gleefully gargling girls. ln March they make another Search for
their White shoes and take another inch off their skirts, Cvvhich have a hard
time keeping up vvith the stylesD, all for the sake of being Well received with

HERE is something about the second real snovv storm that irresistibly
invites us to serenade Santa Claus, so we forget about Sezlve for a while and
make believe vve're angels. lf vve're not very convincing as such, it's certainly
not because we haven't existed long enough in the most proper and promising

the Sunday evening before our departure we are willing to let the Arch-Angel
Choir take over the job of 'flilling our inmost hearts with joy." The mighty
antiphonal, but nonetheless cheerful, little geerful that issues forth from the
vast and impressive one-hundred-and-live-fold phantom of Mistress Music
repays us with a high rate of interest for the effort we made in finally finding
our way into the Chapel. But even the perfection and magnificence of the well-
trained Choir cannot spoil us for the simple and tuneful delight with which
the little Lincoln Center elves gather around our big pine tree as soon as it is
hung with bits of colorful incandescence. Their short concert is a welcome

the clump of ski-boots and the slopes around Sunset are distorted with mean-
ingless tracks and the hill-tops are lined with those who are sore afraid, while
an occasional large indentation indicates that the force of gravity has ruled
over more than one aspiring young amazon. At home, room-mates' ski pants
drip unsavourily from the radiator and we mustn't prowl the halls late
without our candle lest we be disemboweled by a stray ski-pole.
Above and around us, whether we are skidding with gay condescension to
our matins or P.M.s, or leering from behind catastrophic piles of books, topic
pads and sleet-designed windows, the Land glitters unconscious of book-
learning or suppressed desires for daffodils. Wearily we bend under the oil and
over the "Life and Death of the American Indian and lts Effect on Present
Economic Conditions in New Mexico" and yearn Prometheus-like for sleep.

his laurels. Memories float back from March 1936, when labor F1'omNim'Tifl
Six in a dress shop provided a perambulating plot of merry models, an innocent
instigator and a villainous Vixen, with good winning over ghoulishness.
N the kite-worn tail of the March wind, Misc Party minces in, filling
Students with I. Qfs, surrounding Tfs, music and Marx-ish vaude-
ville, moulded, mellowed and manipulated by the Misc-ing minds of the
Editorial Elders. The established embellishment of this electric event is
informality. Here worse can be made to appear better without fear of
Platonic interference. Here a little idiosyncrasy can join hands with a little
released inhibition, and both will be lostunder the hair specifically let down
for the occasion.

Preview of Philaletheis in her III Hall outdoor splendor brings us to the
finale of another year. My year-old brother picks out a tree to call his
own so long as it shall live, and ceremonizes it with song and dance or, as in
1937, with a pastoral scene from Winter'r Tale. Daisies are chained to beauties,
and Sheepskins are signed and bestowed upon those whose Labors were not

The Gwl Kingdom is not very different from the rest
of the world in its recognition of the fact that man is
a social animal who seems to be the function of a large
number of .complex variables, among not the least of
which is his instinct to organize. Aristotle has been
known fby those with more feathers of wisdom in their
caps than lj, to say that "for the most part Nature
only created things for a good reason, but occasion-
ally she slipped up and created things that are super-
fluous." In my weaker moments l agree with Aristotle,
and place in the category of the superfluous such
institutions as those organs of man's inimitable desire
to elect, collect, and produce an effect. However, since
even I, in spite of my raised eyebrows, belong to that
vast multiplicity of walking rationality which so dearly
dotes on boards, committees, associations, and coun-
cils, l feel bound to talk about such things. 0f course
you may not feel bound to read about them, in which
case let me extend my congratulatory pardon.

NCE upon a time a little bee of being democratic buzzed into some-
body's bonnet and developed into six saints and four temperamental,
governmental huddles. These little huddles, or muddles, if you will, credit
themselves with having members, bulletin-boards, and meetings. Occasion-
ally, sweet things, they go so far as to do something but what it is no one
ever knows, except through poster propaganda and miscellany murmurs.

HE wonderful thing about Vassar publications is that if our writing is
too bad for one outfit, we can usually pawn it off on one of the other
three. Most vociferous is the Mife. , which comes out persistently twice a week.
Its news is all so damn fit to print that its board has to sublimate by writing
editorials about birth control and the Man with the Black Umbrella. The
Review Board is rumored to own a cuspidor of knowledge into which it
expectorates. At such infrequent moments it brings forth its select and
slender little volumes. The Review reviews everything, including the Review,
and unlike the Mira. uses "eddies" as apologies for all that .reqaitar Cif any-

admits it contains nothing but a Nat Wolfe storyj Little Mag puts out things

This eflilion rj llie VASSARION is now a reality . . . thanks to the in-
spired efforts of Editor Nancy Brandon, and Business Manager Lydia
Hastings, with whom it has been the pleasure of the Baker, Jones,
Hausauer organization to work with such productive fervor.
But llze 1940 edition is only blanlf paper . . . a nehulous, visionary. yet
sincere desire to make it better than evervto accept the challenge
every yearbook staff encounters to make their edition smarter, liner
and more praiseworthy than any previous edition.
And to the new staff, we would urge in all sincerity that they "cheek
the difference" in yearbook publishing organizations on every point
of creative assistance, financial management, editorial direction and
complete responsibility which must be faced in any college annual
For B-I-H welcomes that kind of checking, since its forty yearsl
experience in producing hundreds of outstanding yearbooks has
crystallized facilities, services and organizing assistance not otherwise
obtainable in the yearbook Held. The 8-Gear Plan will tell you why-
be sure you have us show it to you.
