i'E1'eryl10dy luis to get into the act." VVhat Ross hath wrought! Though the frost was crufel, there were some conscientious min- strels who sang under Bronxville windows- until one window was slammed. A pox on'tl Vacation . . . fthe small-library-travelling-com- panion might as well have collected dust in the rooms at schoolg but, taken home, at least they are safe from the Misses StoneD . . . Can the sweet mystery of life be Sleep? It was very nice . . . the hrst few days, at any rate, before thc others returned . . . IAN UARY 3: Back to sharpen our noses again, proverbially. A bare left hand looked awfully bare, suddenly. Edith Sitwcll hasn't ever been engaged. CBut gee-she doesnit look very happyj lmpassioned notes to Dons from the AA. Office: vacation had not made the muscles of the disenchanted fencing class any more supple.ASomehow the Hrst blaze of romanticism -that brought to mind Douglas Fairbanks and 'lihe Prisoner of Zenda-died away with the scicntihc exercise of the eu gnrtle position, Cin sneakersl, and class attendance shrank propor- tionately . . . Joe Campbell spoke on "Good and 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 will the library wait ,til eleven to close??D TAKE CARE OF YOURSELVES! THIS IS VERY GOOD XVEATHER FOR PNEU- MONIAYP Qld call it EVILFD 'lihe Masquerade Ball: chivalry hasn't died! Even if a lady is half Hsh, there are some gal' lanrs left in the world who'll wheel her in a barrow . . . january was a lovely month for fish: Mrs. King brought us D. Salinger and his Banana Fish. CVVe expected a scrawny little pale manell Friday night suppers didnt im! prove, however: the same haddock for twice as many. Clhe population is heavy in january: contracts and little news from where the mid- terms hold sway.D . . . "Can the lntellect Sur- vive?" But Mrs. Mclntosh, if l let men know how inielligent l really am. theyll be afraid of me. ls it all right if l let mine survive incognito? . . .

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 Dust we are, to dust retumetlt-" "Ours not to reason why-" become more obvious why Betty Bennett calls those volumes about psychology "bug booksfilg and as for more legitimate drama: 'iluno and the Paycockw.

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 gold, untastcdj The Scholarship Committee descended with another money-making scheme: ll' you bought tickets you could answer ques- tions. VVho was Emmeline? bliss Milligan guessed Emmeline was an erstwhile resident of Sheflield: a cow. Miss Milligan won a pink shirt. CML lXlartinelli made a very ivivzmt talyleau as he ate six pieces of pumpkin pie.D . . . The Chorus finally performed at home that night!

A fremlian S lip. speakers name: Swami Nikilanandag anyone with such a poetic name must have something important to say. VVhat did he say?-T don't knowg but he had the most lveautiful handsl . . . Amazing feat of imagination: Bates became a chapel for one fantastic half an hour, as televi- sion cameras recorded us marching to "Onward Christian Soldiersf, . . . hir. Gregory paid his an- nual visit to the cafe and made a vast deduction: "T am DELIGHTED to see that the cafeteria has become a common meeting-ground for the students and facultyf, . . . The S.S.
