Vacation . . . fthe small-library-travelling-com-

IAN UARY 3: Back to sharpen our noses again,

-that brought to mind Douglas Fairbanks and

scicntihc exercise of the eu gnrtle position, Cin
sneakersl, and class attendance shrank propor-

Evil" while New Years irresolutc Resolutions
were still slightly rememberedg but the usual
shortage of time left us with inchoate questions
that had no hope of being answered. QVVhen

Another trifoliate course has been opened for
us: generally, to be characterized by the new
word CLEAN. Division A deals with that
roily ulccr-bed, the dining-room: herein one
is battered through the kitchen to witness the
endless life-and-death struggle between the
cooks, to be galvanized by the blood-curdling
shricks ol' the dish-washer: 'iOver heRE!": one is
obliged to play the role of a pendulous vulture,
and to realize with horror that the hands, at the
end of a week's plate-snatching, become un--
controllable, self-motivating birds oi' prey. Di-
vision B is less wearing: the community is its
concern. Cldow we ramify into zillions of
abilities here! Dnce it took me half an hour
and a broom to sweep the hall: now live min-
utes, mopping docs it. l think the air is getting
cleaner, or something.D Division C: the room.
Closer to the Hoor, one comes to know all the
dusts: the feathery little individuals, the less
independent colonies, and dust condensed to
grime. Oh much-lamented maids! my knees
threaten to give out, and where will cleanliness
be then, poor thing? Ilidden underneath the
ring around the tub.
But we have survived such drudgeryg life is
embellished by other things: psychology films
are a pleasant diversion, if only because of their
titles and sequence: A'Life With Babyn, "Over-
dependencyn, 'Feeling of Rejection", "Grief"
. . . And then i'Cat in the Puzzle Boxv. Qltis

those volumes about psychology "bug booksfilg
and as for more legitimate drama: 'iluno and
the Paycockw. December may not have been
a winter wonderland, but sure'n l'm after

ing around corners, and Mdarlinu is IlOt such a

VVorksheets and a prom before Christmas vaca-
tion: the one attended to with universal lack of
enthusiasm, the other attended by some, and
cursed by a great many others whom the din
kept awake . . . Beau geste before the mass exo-
dus madc by Miss Weismziritelz the Christmas
Dinner. If only Charlie Dickens had been there:
Boar's Head, Apple, Plum Pudding, and all.
QBut shades of Scrooge! They sat like miser's

descended with another money-making scheme:

guessed Emmeline was an erstwhile resident of
Sheflield: a cow. Miss Milligan won a pink shirt.

Amazing feat of imagination: Bates became a
