I think I am perfectly justified in
writing a bool entitled "Why Pro-
fessors Behave Like Human Be-

only consolation I can see in the
whole situation is the fact that
there is J-Hop to look back to. Yes,
I finally did get a bid!
And did we have a good time!
Didn't we come back with rings

people who wish to study Greek
fashion. That all blonds an other-

That the University is losing money1
