Every artist, it seems, must have
his eccentricity, or as in the case of,
George Bernard, his eccentricities.
There are really very few things that
this gentleman does that are like
what other people do. For instance,
Shaw says that in order for him toj
write his most successful plays he
must write theni in moving railroad
trains. He claims that he positively
cannot write while, in London because
of the terrific smoke there, and that
the most satisfactory place of refuge'
is the railroad train. To most of us,

~great Cowles will retire from publiic
life, and become once more a plain
citizen. Like Cincinnatus, he will
[simply barge home and pick up the
t lawnmower where he left it. But,
before the year draws to its annual'
close, we feel that we owe something
too the paper.
And that, breathless reader, is the
I matter of selecting a suitable succes-
sor to ourself: a m'nan who will carry
on the tradition established by the
great Cahligula, and improved by

such a man for the Daily before we
heave away our mantle..
To that end, although we swore that'
we would never again pose as the
I proprietor of a contest, we are giv-
ing an opportunity to the campus to
show its mettle. If anybody wantsI
to accede to our office, let him-or
her-submit a sample chef d'oeuvre
vi~a the 'U. S. Mail at once. We shall'
consider all material so submitted as

judge it all with the same fairness1
that we urged (see above) for use in
