Theorist Room by Tom :'alaz-

the loneliness of a big city -
Chicago. Reminiscent of the

of Hopper and perhaps even de
Chirico, Theorist Room builds
slowly and carefully until the
most commonplace of city ob-
jects become surrealist visions
of estrangement and alienation.

Quo Vadis; or Your Chariot Is On My Foot
I know it sounds crazy, but there's still a chance you might not
dunk out of school. (You're laughing, but it's possible.) It is, however,
a very slim chance and it will require you to do something you've
never done before: take notes.
Why haven't you been taking notes? I'll tell you why. Let's sup-
pose you're at a history lecture. Let's suppose the topic is the ruling
houses of England. You start out fine. You put down the lecturer's
points one after another with Roman numerals just like you're sup-
posed to. Like this:
I. House of Plantagenet
II. House of Lancaster
III. House of York
Then suddenly you stop. You put down your pen. You blink back
a tear. You can't go on. Oh sure, you know the next ruling house is the
House of Tudor.What you don't know is the Roman numeral that
comes after III.
There's the hangup-those cruddly Roman numerals! How come
we keep using them when even the Romans didn't know how? Oh, I
guess they could tell you how much V or X were or like that, but when
it came to skullerackers like LXI or MMC, they just flang away their
styluses and went downtown to have a bath or take in a circus or may-
be stab Caesar a few times.
You may wonder why Rome stuck with these ridiculous numerals
when the Arabs had such a nice simple system. Well sir, the fact is that
Emperor Vespasian tried like crazy to buy the Arabic numerals from
the Sultan, Sulieman the Hairy, but Sulieman wouldn't do business-
not even when Vespasian raised his bid to 100,000 gold piasters, plus
he offered to throw in the Colosseum, the Appian Way and Charlton
So Rome stuck with Roman numerals-to its sorrow, as they
found. One day in the Forum, Cicero and Pliny the Elder got to argu-
ing about how much is CDL times MVIX. Well sir, pretty soon every-
body in town came around to join the hassle. In all the excitement
nobody remembered to lock the north gate and-wham! before you
could say ars longa-in rushed the Goths, the Visigoths and the Green
Bay Packers!
Well sir, that's the way the empire crumbles, but I digress. Let's
get back to lecture notes. Let's also say a word about Miller High Life
Beer because the brewers of Miller High Life Beer sponsor this column
and they're inclined to sulk if I don't mention their product. Natu-
rally, they don't sulk long, the brewers of Miller High Life Beer, for
they are ebullient, great-spirited men, as chock-full of sunniness as the
beer they brew. Believe me, I know. Every Tuesday I have lunch with
them at the brewery and I've never seen such a fun place!
The lunches always get off to a rousing start with everybody sing-
ing the Miller Pep Song which you all know, of course:
I'm a keg of Miller- I'm a keg of Miller-
I will please your palate. So go and get a mallet.
I'm a keg of Miller- I'm a keg of Miller-
I will make you feel young. And bang away at my bung.
Well sir, this is only the beginning. Next, everyone gets up in turn
and does a hilarious bit. For instance, Frank Glebe from Hops Control
imitates a chicken; Rex Gransmire from Label Gumming touches his
ear with his tongue; Charley Froos from Malt Flow cracks a walnut
in his armpit; Norman Berswang from Fermentation touches his arm-
