t' i


We were glancing through old
Dailies the other day, and we found
traces of another age, a pre-'29 era,
plenty fast and a bit risque. It was
the hey-day of short skirts, long
waisted dresses, and those deep-
crowned. abominations which passed
as hats. High heels, slinky cars, a
much-worried over. "liquor problem,"
,and the first feeble efforts of that
mechanical device, the Vitaphone.'
Personally I'll take 1938.
We couldn't help feeling a little
smug. After all, even our old system I
of campus elections didn't necessi-
tate re-counts and re-elections every
time, and long bobs and the sweater-
skirt costume are much more becom-
ing, don't you think so? And their
football team was terrible!
The League building was completed
in '28, while the Union opera was a
fact, not a memory. The Graf Zep-
plin was launched, the League of Na-
tions was still going strong, and the
Gaynor-Ferrall movie team was a
box-office favorite. They're largely
memories now.
Do you ever wonder what the class
of '48 will think .of us? Will we be
models of what not to do, or "that
class that cleaned up campus poli-
tics?" Will they consider our clothes
absurd (undoubtedly), and our con-
ventions amusing? Will we be the
group that did and died for our coun-
try, or will they?
Speculating the future or reviewingI
the past-both are fun and rather1
pointless. Anything can happen, and1
fate will decide whether it be good,
bad, or indifferent. Probably a bit
of all three. Like pulling a prize out
of the proverbial grab-bag, you don't
know what you're going to get, but1
the suspense is delightful.l
