This I swear, and this I say,
Barbara Conroy, '41
Editor's Note: With this issue your
editor bid: "goodbye" with a deep feel-
ing of regret. I never expected to he
sorry when I graduated-I was going to
he gladf but I am very .rad at the
thought of leaving MeMain. I have
loved my staff work, and I am sorry it
is over now. I have worked hard, and
I hope you enjoyed my column as much
as I enjoyed writing it for you.
To my xureexxor, who may be anyone
ol you, I wixh the hes! of luck. I hope
she likes her iob as much as I did. It
gives me a cold chill to have to say-
There was not an overabundance
of books for this issue. Every one
that came is a worthy representative
of its high school. There is a say-
ing about a good beginning and a
good ending-so I start with "The
Advocate." This is a charming mag-
azine filled with delightful short sto-
ries. The theme was hobbies, and
there were stories, poems, and pic-
tures on hobbies. From their mag-
azine I took these examples of be-
ing brief, but to the point.
Horrid black spectre
On a peaceful horizon . .
A test tomorrow.
Gauchos and guitars,
Girls, a moon and stars,
Castenets and big sombreros,
Spanish shawls and bright boleros.
The stars are symbols
Of bright hope above a world
Dark with fearsome sin.
I chose this ballad of woe. It's long,
but well worth repeating.
Of Course l've Not a One
I've tried to have a hobby
And I'll admit it's fine,
But now, fand I will tell you whyl
I haven't got a one.
I took up stamp collecting'
And bought a stamp book, too.
And then each day I'd look around
For foreign stamps a few.
I'd ask my friends and teachers
And all the kids I'd see
If they had correspondents
From far across the sea.
Of course they never had any
And, you see, I was stuckg
I'd spent two bits for a stamp book,
Oh, darn! Of all the luck!
So then I turned to match covers.
Oh, I looked all around,
But the only place I saw any
Was lying on the ground.
Now you know that I'm a lady,
And it doesn't look quite right
To go 'round picking up matchbooks
A-lying in plain sight.
I always felt like a criminal,
And glanced around a bit
Before I'd stoop to pick one up,
'Cause Ma would have a fit.
If she should see me act that way,
I'd not forget it for one day.
But you know that I'm a lady,
So I won't say what she would say.
After that I went to postcards.
I had some good ones, toog
And every day when the mail would
I'd get one or two.
At first it worked out pretty well
And everything was fine,
'Til a traveling salesman I once knew
Took to dropping me a line.
The post-cards weren't bad,
But the things he said, oh, my!
I couldn't put 'em in my collection
For if Ma saw, why she'd just die!
To think that her prim daughter
Could receive such mail,
My Ma I couldn't slaughter,
So that hobby, too, did fail.
Another I've not begun.
Now you may jeer and you may
But of hobbies I've got not a one.
Did you like that? From the Ex-
change of that magazine I picked
these little verses. Even these 'deal
with diversions of some sort.
Here we are warned against the
hobby of a Worm.
A worm dug
A worm dug in
A worm dug in earnest
A worm dug in dead earnest,
The favorite pastime of a sopho-
more is expressed here.
The sofa sagged in the middle,
The shades were pulled just so.
The family had retired
And the midnight oil burned low.
There came a sound from the sofa,
The clock was striking two,
The sophomore slammed his text
With a thankful-
"Well, I'm through!"
fWe can be sure this was a soph-
omore, for a junior or senior would
have known bettelzl
This one seems to discourage pas-
time of kissing.
Before I heard the doctors tell
Of the danger of a kiss,
I had considered kissing you
The nearest thing to bliss.
But since I took biology,
All I do is groan,
Six million mad bacteria-
And I thought we were all alone-
McMain was pleased to find her
name in their exchange column.
'F Il' all
"The Arlingtoniann has some in-
teresting articles-among them are
ones concerning embarassing mo-
ments, broken hearts, reactions to
pictures, fashions, and such. We re-
ceived two issues of "The Arlington-
ian." Among their poems was a
silly little ditty called "Spring"
Spring is sprung,
The grass is riz,
I wonder where
The liowers is.
Do you know your alphabet? Do
know which letter is used the
most? "The Arlingtoniann did. From
the exchange column I bring you-
The Tale of "E"
E is said to be the most unfortu-
nate letter in the alphabet, 'because
it is always out of cash, forever in
debt, never out of danger, and in
trouble all the time. All of which is
true. Still it is never in war, always
in peace, and always in something
to eat. It is ever the beginning of
existence, the commencement of ease,
and the end of trouble. Without it
there would be no life, no heaven.
It is the center of honesty, and is
always in love. It is the beginning
of encouragement and endeavor, and
the end of failure.

The "Fa1ter Finchell" column of
"The Shadow" proved very interest-
ing to me and I hope my excerpts
from it will interest you.
