Why is it that the first week of
the semester one's mind, part of the
time, resembles a schedule with X's
by 9, 10 or 11 o'clocks and the rest
of the time'said mind sort of stretches
out like a calendar with weekends
as peaks here and there . . . Pay-Off,
Frosh Frolic, Assembly, Mimes, JGP,
aid on and on to spring vacation,
then on and on to May Festival,
spring formals and finals . . . but,
that's where we came in, week before'
Many and varied are the tales and
wails that come from the registra-
tion shuffle-mostly associated with
the trials and tribulations of the
freshmen. But the latest and by far
the most diverting in our estimation
comes from a grad student-no less.
It seems that she (the proverbial
woman in the case) has been at-
tending one course throughout this
first week, and studying diligently..
(Rumor has it that that's how one
distinguishes between grads and un-
dergrads). After a four hour stretch
of studying said course, she decided
the material was familiar, nay, more
-the book had a cover she remem-
bered distinctly having seen before.
Horrors-this is a course she took her
junior year.
