And in her upturned eyes I read an
Spurring me on-and I dared sweep
with ever willing lips
Her mouth-and then she gasped, a
gasp of pained surprise,
Her eyes, Just now so merry, faded
into a glance
That burned the very core of my heart.
Not that of anger
But of a deep and lasting sorrow. Like
that of one,
Who, gazing out upon the ruins of an
Trod under foot by ruthless minions
' of man,
Sees all therein that once was held
Destroyed and taken for all times
From out the cherishing bottom of the
And I? I turned, cursing the fatethat
drove me on.
The petty desire that for the moment
Overcame the finer thought that gov-
The memory of the tear that fell
Would she had scorned-had uttered
words that burned,
Than leave me with but a ghost that
leers and frowns,
And utters words that language can't
We thought we had a scoop on the
story of the lights in Cook Dorm., but
somebody stole our thunder. Alas,
Touching Sore Spots
There was another big fire at M.
A.tC.tHaven't they gotten over the
fact that they beat Michigan yet?
There seems to be a good deal of
satisfaction expressed because of the
fact that Michigan landed as high as
third place in the Eastern Intercolle-
giates, with a team of but fourteen
men. Pardon us, but why weren't we
fighting for first? The fault lies not
in the men that went-in fact, all hon-
or to them. Michigan, you know, is
really a fairly large school-and there
is just a little tang to the joy be-
cause of the fact that Steve Farrell
wasn't able to send more men to
represent the colors.
Now Don't You Vity Hin?
There once was a little fellow
Who was quite a bit of a wit,
So they put him on The Daily
Just to furnish us the "Pit."
So one day this little fellow
Got to feeling pretty fine
And he wrote about a. "brother"
In a rather haughty line.
But a "sister" fair, now mind you,
A young "coo-ed" coy, and sweet,
Tho't the message quite uncalled for;
Or at least was, incomplete.
But her "breakfast understanding"
Had been shocked beyond degree,
When she read the various items
That were written there "by Gee."
Now don't you really pity
The naughty little boy
Who wrote the saucy items
That marred this page of "joy"?
Then methings it's not improper
To encourage this poor man
To keep on with his funny work
Anddo the best he can?
