My Dear Chum: Why are you so afraid of folks,
Bessie? Every day I think what good times we might
be having together at Doane if you could only forget
your fear and 001119. You are always speaking of 11ow
terrible it must be to meet the faculty, and how insig-
nidcant I must feel in their presence. Yes, indeed, the
faculty of Doane College has impressed me very much.
As a Freshman I was fllled with a wholesome awe, but
as a Junior I am daily coming to a clearer realization
of the kindness of their hearts. Miss T. has been espe-
cially considerate of my feelings, emptying her pocket-
book buying red ink with which to artistically decorate
llly Hamlet and Browning papers, and, realizing my lone-
some tendencies, has summoned me again and again to
'fwalk the green carpet" before her gentle presence. You
would hardly recognize me, Bessie, for through associa-
tion I am gaining such an appreciation for the beautiful,
in fact, I can already greatly admire Thompsonian days-
less poetically speaking, grey days-and I'rexy's fiery
Prexy teaches history and pedagogy, and he makes
us study, but you would not be afraid of him. Two of
his great psychological teachings have sunk deep into
my brain--that too much study is not good for the
health, and plenty of out-door exercise is absolutely
necessary, especially in the springs. Speaking of spring
makes me think of Professor Gillespie. To gain my good
will he ranks me as a Sophomore, according to his new-
fangled, eastern scheme. If I only knew as much Greek
and Latin as he does I would be happy, but I suppose
we are all blessed in different ways, and I can get to my
eight o'clock Latin class o11 time. He is very fond of
golf, and so is Professor Jillsong but Professor Jillson's
specialty is peanuts and talking. I acquired so much
general information when I took French and German,
besides finishing up several bits of fancy work.
lVe don't have any time for such thi11gs in Professor
Bennett's classes. He teaches mathematics and Bible.
If we study hard in trig. and analytics, he gives us a stick
and chain in the spring and tells us to survey. He is so
thoughtful of our pleasure, and I like to survey-in the
spring. Professor Hosford is kind, too. He allowed us
to study the heavens every clear evening last spring, and
told us to observe the moon whenever it was possible. I
tried to follow out his injunction, but Critch had the im-
pudence to object. Poor Critch! Some one has run off
with his dark lantern, which he never used, except on his
bicycle. I have only one'thing now to be afraid of, and
that is Professor Reynolds. He has been abroad, studied
in Paris, you know, wears his hair a la Francaise, and
looks so much as I imagine the great masters do, that I
keep my distance and hold him in awe, but the music
students say that he is not very dangerous. I am a little
afraid of Principal Brown, too, for it is said that he can
read any student's thoughts and intentions in twenty
lninutes. Oh, I don't mean that my intentions are not
perfect, but I don't want him to go to the trouble. you

You'd like Poddy, Bess. He lets me sit on the back
seat in l'oly Con. Some of the faculty prefer to have
me sit on the front seat. I suppose they want me for an
example. Poddy plays baseball just fine, in fact, he is
the star player on the faculty team. Professor Powers
is fine, too. He is o11r Junior professor. I always think
of him as I first saw him-a toad in one hand, a sala-
mander in the other, a rhetoric book under his arm, and
Mrs. Bohne makes me feel so much at home, she
comes and knocks "good-nightv at my door every night,
and keeps my clock just on time. She gives us the most
instructive lectures, all about matches and such interest-
ing subjects. Sometimes she calls to see if my room-
mate has been sticking pins in the wall. That room-
mate of mine is so careless. Oh, 1ny! I hear her coming,
a snake peeping from either pocket.
