Over Here

Z INTER begins at (]OODYEAR'S
with brand new ideas in' sports-
wear for the frozen months. From
head to toe, from inside out, we
can outfit professionals and ama-
teurs alike. Costumes exciting and
colorful, or practical and work-
manlike; with the gayest of acces-
sories to add a final fillip. We cor-
dially invite you to see our collec-
tion, and to view the windows at
our State Street Store!

Here's something too good to keep.
Mr. X, a sophomore on the editorial
staff of The Daily, wants "to write
40 inches a week, maintain a B aver-
age, have two dates per weekend and
enough sleep to keep walking." Does
that seem funny to you? It does to
Maybe it's because he has his life
summed up so neatly. Sounds like
a recipe for live along and like it. If
he does it all, he'll do well-we don't
quibble on that point-but what kind
of miracle man is this who knows
so exactly what he wants to do? With
the rest of us wallowing in indeci-
sion a prompt dose of whatever-it-
takes is in order.
Probably it's the senior in me
speaking. During the past week I've
come to the conclusion that seniors
are a species apart. Two bull-ses-
sions convinced me. The first blow
fell when I heard a 22 year old
BWOC murmur disconsolately, "To-
night I feel OLD." Same senior
went on to reminisce on the good
old days when she was a junior,
"You remember . . . JGP and In-
stallation Banquet and Wyvern . . .
and everything."
It started me wondering. So I
followed it up at a reunion dinner
the next night. Fourteen seniors
who as freshmen had lived together
on the same corridor were having a
once-in-a-coon's-age get - together.
Over coffee I popped the question,
"How do you feel about being a
And there it was again. That same
sort of remote attitude, like viewing
life from Mt. Olympus. Universally
they agreed that it had been fun
while it lasted, but now-give them
something new and different. And
the crux of the thing is this-they
felt like a bunch of has-beens.
And so, Mr. Sophomore-Mt. Olym-
pus judges you funny.
