Sir Toby Tiffin,

Dear Sir:
Say I have stood about as much of
this contribution bumming from you
as I care too, and that goes for the
Deacon's Cousin too. We are bothl
d- fed up.
Every day or so when you get one
of your lazy streaks, you come whin-
ing into our office after stuff.
"Hey! How about a Chummy and
Bunny story. Hey! How about fill-
ing eight inches!" Well here's your
eight inches. Fill your old column.
If you haven't any more conscience
than that you deserve pity.
And that's what you're going to get.
The world wasn't built in a day
And Eve didn't ride in a Nash

In view of your kindness in th,
earlier parts of this literary' season,
in contributing to this department,
and in view of the wealth of excel-
lent material by way of contributions
which have appeared in the same de-

be only just to offer you both an op-
portunity to maintain your previous

personally called upon you to as-
sure you that we would appreciateI
your continued effort, in order that
you might not feel the least embar-
rassment in writing further.
When we received your reply which
we have taken the liberty to publish'
flove ,we were greatly chagrined to
find that your taste and sense of
humor had been so greatly dulled by
your efforts on other pseudo-humor-
ous endeavors which are struggling
to survive upon this campus. Knowing
both you gentlemen to be earnest in
your endeavors toward better art, we
know that you are both now repent-
ing your short-sightedness, and
knowing this we hasten to assure

"The Merry Wives of Windsor."
Jeppe of the Hill is his name, peas-

fool; often he is pathetic and stupid;
and always he is ridiculous and
naive. He blunders from one adven-

abused; rarely is he wholly sober and
never does he wholly understand the
