A

7rter Remarks About
01 Him Who Seeks

(Continued from Page One) J
er1 brows who expect the Daily to lead
campus thought and culture upwara:
and onward at a Man o' War gait.
Perhaps the most interesting com-c
plainer'is the gentleman who bears al
Jr. after his name and is much cha-1
grined some morning to see himselfl
listed on the sub-committee for the!
relief of the starving Aztecs as justf
plain John Doe. He goes in the sameI
pigeon-hole with the temperamentalj
genius who spells his name with an
"e" and sees it in print with an "a.
This type of sobbee usually assumes
an offended dignity attitude in the
manner of the professor who gets the
foot-shuffle ten minutes before the
hour is over. But it's' only human na-
ture; names are important. We once
thought we were partaking of some
fine old claret until a kind friend dis-
pelled the illusion by showing us the
Snyder label.
The students, masculine and femi-
nine, who appear in premature en-I
i gagement announcements perpetratedI
by their loving friends always num-'
der among the most vociferous and
enthusiastic complainers. Far be it
from us to grow facetious over such
unfortunate occurrences-it would be,
rather embarrassing-but isn't it al
funny thing, this friendship business?
And then there is the gentleman
from the ten-member organization de-
voted to the study of neuritis as it
affects the pink geranium. He is in-
terested in pink geraniums-reads
about 'em, dreams \about 'em, and
raises 'em.
Wants Front Page
Since his life is bounded on the east
by a garden trowel and on the west
by a fistful of seed, he can't under-.
stand why the rest of the world
doesn't call it .the thrill of the year
when the porch box begins to look
ike an immigrant's shawl. He mod-
estly asks for half the front page and
i hundred-dollar art spread for the
purpose of giving the history of the
geranium he planted last planting
-ime, and feels hurt when he doesn't
'et it.
The geranium fiend has a side-kick,
lie geti, little publicity agent. A
Lablicity agent is a parrot who knows
-te phrase: "It's for the good of thb
Uiiversity." He is well loved, like the
itcN arld shy as a cactus. He has met
Mr. Rebuff so often that they don't

even shake hands any more, and his
favorite occupation is asking for the
front page of the supplement. He and
prohibition agents are unnecessary
evils.
But complaints are valuable. They
keep the paper from having too many
Monday night meetings announced for
Tuesday and they provide material
for the caustic comments at the staff
meetings. They are like the fleas on
David Harumn's dog.
May they continue to be as unfailing
as that Monday morning grouch.
(By E. R. Mf.)
The following rhyme is not merely
a fantastical hallucination of the au-
thor, but has its basis in actual fact.
For those skeptical individuals who
demand proof of the tale's veracity,
reference is cited to the police annals,
May 23, 1901, of the city of New York,
Tenn.:

1..
The murderer was doomed to die,
A last request was called for by
The judge, in sympathy;
The criminal said, "All that I hope,
If I must hang you'll put the rope
' Round soie mulberry tree."
2.
The judge was foiled, he had to crawl,
Said he, "That tree is much too small,
As everyone here knows;"
The prisoner made a quick reply,
Said he, "With your permission, I
Can wait until it grows."
3
They hanged the fellow anyhow,
They shoved him off a maple bough,
High in the air he hung;
He kept his humor to the last,
And whisperpd slyly as we passed,
"I always was high strung."
A. Neemic & Co. have issued a new
song, "My Dentist May Be No Poli-
tician, But He's Got an Awful Pull,"
which they claim fits in well as a
counter melody to their famous best
seller, "A Bow-Legged Girl May Be
Healthy But She's Out of Shape."
