his haste-driven convenience, is now
thwarted by great gaping areas which'
his strident energy can't abridge; and
he no longer clamors for convenient
highways, direct from his here to his
there, but with humbled spirit is con-
tent to walk around, and by some
improvised narrow passageway to
sling into a mocking rear entrance.
His former bee-line path has become
a kind of delirious concentric curve,,
with occasional features along the
way which suggest a thoughtfully plan-
ned course for an obstacle race. What
would he not give now for a mod-I
est little forty-five degree angle to
walk leisurely and respectfully
around? And though once he peti-
tioned the gods for wider walks, to
circumvent the social proclivities of
the co-ed, what would he not give now!
for a demure eight-foot istraight-away,
however peopled, if only unobstructed
by detour bars and unmenaced by
lurching motor trucks?!
Either the aesthete or the untilitar-
ian would welcome now, by prefer-
ence, the remote days when the side-
walks were mere gravelled strips,
with a pair of boardwalk inlays to ac-
commodate single-file traffic in each
direction -- devices which certainly
were not adornment,3 to the campus,!
however much of the cherished plot
I they left undisturbed in its native
beauty-or barrenness.
Looking to the future, it is a ques-
tion which of the two contestants Ali
finally come' into his own. If recent
student growths ratios are maintain-I
ed, the campus traffic problem will)
become acute in a fairly short time,l
and not only a hetwork of broad side-
walks, but double-deck viaducts, even
overhead bridges between skyscraper
buildings, underground arcades for
automobiles, and elaborate aerial sta-
tions, nay ke expected in time to
complicate the =beauty-lover'.s view.
Probably the old sidewalk conten-
tion will presently be resumed, and
will go on, as before, seemingly with-
out end. Meanwhile, however, .there is
a notable recess in the familiar con-
troversy-a lull in which the old an-
tagonists are for the time made com-
panions in misery. A wistful longing
for the comparative paradise of old-
en days almost makes' them sympa-
thetic friends. No fear of future in-
convenience or aesthetic pain pene-
trates the present gloom. From the1
point of view of either, the past was

In February, at the close of one se-
mester, comes the brief respite before
the beginning of another. With it ar-
rive thoughts of the future, and usu-
ally regrets for the past. Mistakes
made will not recur; energies unused
will be applied; and time wasted will,
be a thing bygone; diligence will mark
the road ahead.
These, and other equally haloed in,-'
tentions inspire the student to start
out anew, to.make his college life
worth while,-or more worth while.
Then comes the new semester A
pound of notebook filler and freshly
sharpened pencils escort the student
to his classes. His professor lectures.
He listens intently; writes furiously;
absorbs splendidly. At night he stud-j
ies conscientiously; sits in quizz ex-
ultantly; knows his assignment thor-
oughly. -
But as the pencils wear down, soj
does his epthusiasm; and the end of
the semester finds him again with
thoughts of the future, and again withI
