Inanirties
Yesterday we started holding our
breath and wishing away the fly in
our college 'cold cream-exam period.
We looked up all the rules on study-
ing, we yelled through the house for
quiet hours, we debated the merits of
lilrary atmosphere and the comfort
of home. But mostly we just shut our
eyes and. dreamed away the coming
10 days.
In fact, we're hustling time quite a
bit now, all in the mind, of course.
After the last problem postcard ar-
rives, we're going to pack like mad,
leaving out only one outfit for the
last canoeing party or our Senior
Ball date. The train is already on
the way home, and we contemplate
that first family dinner for which we
sent the desired menu by letter a
week ago.
Chek Engagements First
Once home, it's hard to decide what
to do first. Better look up that job
immediately to feel secure and self-
sufficient. Then there will be a whole
week of meeting the gang every eve-
ning to swap talk, and we wonder
who is engaged and how many pins
will be floating. Our correspondence
has been falling off to a new low
lately, and there is plenty we should
know and just don't.
We wonder if there will be time
enough to start rejuvenating the ten-
nis game that has been languishing
while the clouds weep down upon Ann
Arbor. And surely the summer is too
short, now that we think about it,
far us to get entirely through the
shelf of books reserved for an en-
hgtening vacation. At this rate, the
sowl lapse is getting shorter and
shorter; gosh, we'd better hurry now.
Fster-f aster-
Thoughts Turn To Fall
We've just got to have time to
take that hiking trip we planned
with some old high school chums.
And we can't forget to knit the three
new sweaters for next fall-
Next fall! Oh, just imagine pack-
ing agan! What trouble! Should
we leave early, or wait until the last
train? How to decide about a new
pair of saddle shoes? When does the
dormitory open; we hate to scout
around for meals too long. We won-
der if we'll ever get used to having
the seniors gone, and which under-
graduates will fail to return? Oh, we
mustn't forget to make some new
chintz window drapes too before we
leave.
Oh, my gosh, it's practically time
to leave, and we haven't accomplished
half the things we'd planned.
Say, hello!! When did you get
back in town?
