Cora Opines
IWell, my dear, here we are al-
ready to start theh few semester-
that is the new semester is about
to start, I really don't think we are
ready. Yesterday was sort of a
preliminary as it were to the real
thing. That is, everyone went
around to classes and took a lool
at the prof to see if he was a good
bet and worth taking a chance or
for the rest of the semester. .
Of course, there will be several
people in this dear, old University
of ours that will have decided not
to come back this semester-or per-
haps they had it decided for them
-some people do have that hap-
pen you know. But really, my
dear, I do think it is quite an ac-
complishment to survive these ex-
ams. I was a wreck when I finish-
ed mine, I mean I really was. You
know, I think exams are horribly
unfair because what's a poor girl
to do when she has four or five
of them in a row and has to study
night and day for them, thus mak-
ing herself look like a perfect
wreck by the time she has to take
them? You'll have to admit she
can't compete with the girls who
have gobs of time in between te
keep the shadows from under their
eyes and are consequently better
fitted to flash dazzling smiles on
their professor and to tell him
sweetlg how much they enjoyed
his course. Oh yes, that does help
--sometimes. Of course, on the
other hand, the overworked femme
can cast an appealing look at her
prof on the way out, and thus ap-
peal to his pity.
And, though I hadn't intended to
mention it at all, I feel that I really
must make known the fact that I
did NOT write the letter addressed
to me pertaining to a certain course
in speech that I have just sur-
vived. Really, my dear, I can't
understand why anyone would
think I had written such a letter
to myself, and besides I should
think that everyone would miss
I that subtle feminine note that is
characteristic of my opining. Any-
way, that particular dear instructor
gave me a passing grade in the
course, so I really shall have to
remember him in his kindlier mo-
Tut-ankh-amen's tomb has a
rival for magnificence since the
unearthing of the tomb of Moti
Maris, the favorite wife of King
Solomon. The &offin is of gold and
there is a crown set with pearls,
emeralds, and sapphires on the
head of the favorite.
By the side of the body in the
coffin was found a scroll inscribed
by the king, commending the vir-
tues of his wife and describing her
heroic death. The father of Moti
Maris visited the kingdom with
the intention of murdering the
king and seizing the country in the.
name of the king of Egypt. He had
Moti Maris prepare a poisoned wine
for the king, but just as Solomon
was raising the cup to his lips she
snatched it away and drank it her-
self, dying almost immediately.

The winning poster in the con-
test will be used for the cover of
the play programs and as an ad-
vertising medium. Last year's. win-
ning poster was designed by Mar-
garet Gentz, '29, who submitted a
poster in modernistic style.
Title Is Still A Secret
The title of this year's play,
which has so for been kept secret,
is to be announced this week. The
author of the book, Frances Sack-
ett, has received much favorable
comment on the novel plot of her
manuscript, and the announcement
of the title is being awaited with
much interest by the juniors and
all others who are interested in the
play. The names of the members
of the cast and of the various
choruses are also to be announced
along with the title of the play.

Living now in Victoria, British
Columbia, she has surrounded her-
self with an exotic atmosphere by
furnishing her house in the Orien-
tal fashion. And here this woman
writes as though she were possess-
ed of two totally ifferent person-
alities. As L. Adams Beck she'
tells of the life and thought of the
India of two thousand years ago,
or if she is in the mood of E. Bar-
rington, of French and English so-
ciety of the eighteenth and nine-
teenth centuries.
Besides being a writer of no lit-,
tle . note Mrs. Adams Beck is a
public speaker of some experience.
At her home in Victoria this wom-
an every fortnight gathers a group
of friends about her and speaks to
them without preparation on some
psychic, literary, or historical topic.
The personality of E. Barring-
ton has been inherited from a long
line of Scotch ancestors and is re-
sponsible for the books whose sub-
jects have been drawn entirely
from English history.
