No More Skeletons
In Closets At Girls'1
Cooperative House
Pete, the much-discussed skeleton
who has been residing at the Girls''
Cooperative House since Hallowe'en.
has returned to his original home.
Because of constant pressure ex-
erted by his original protectors, Pete
felt it his duty to put an end to the
campus factionalism he has been
causing, and to insure the domestic
happiness of the. boys who were his
former custodians by living with
them once more.
"While the advantages of living in
a feminine environment are many."
he said, "the constant excited at-
mosphere is contrary to my tastes. I
am primarily a quiet, unassuming
skeleton, and, as such, feel it more
to my advantage to return to a mas-
culine menage."
