Ouf(the lck
"Portrait of a Student Studying
for a Midsemester"
(otherwise known as "The Ravin ')
(Ed. Note: Po' Mr. Poe)
Once upon a midnight dreary
While I pondered weak and wary
Over many a quaint and furious
volume of forgotten lore-
While I nodded nearly napping,
Suddenly there came a tapping,
As of someone gently rapping,
Rapping at my chamber door.
"'Tis some visitor," I stuttered,
"Slapping at my chamber door.
Only this and heaven, too."j
Ah, distinctly I remember
It was in the bleak-my God! it's cold.
(Sorry, folks, we have to skip this
next line-no embers in the dormitory
Eagerly! I wished the morrow;
Vainly I had sought to borrow
Someone's notes to ease my sorrow;
But this rare and radiant maiden who
had known me from before-
Blameless here forever more-
Quote quite firmly "nevermore!"
And the silken, sad, uncertain rust-
ling of each burlap curtain
Chilled me-filled me with fantastic
terrors never felt before-
So that now, to still the beating
Of my heart I stood repeating-(over
some benzebrine sulphate)-
"Two times two is always four."
Presently my breath grew stronger;
Hesitating then no longer,
"Sir," (I hoped!) or Madame, (as the
case may be)
Truly your forgiveness I implore.

Scarves Serve.
Practical And
Qay Purposes
Scarves are back! Plaids, plains,
prints! Triangular, square, oblong!
Big and little, light and dark, gay
and giddy, soft and ummm!! They,
come in a variety of shapes and
colors both for head and neck wear.
This variety of style and colors makes
them serviceable for all occasions.
The cowboy style has returned; for
coeds are again wearing their gayly
colored triangles looped through a
bone or metal ring a la Texas. Con-
trasting scarves "dress up" plain
coats and self-material scarves are
being shown with winter coats and
wool dresses. For classic blackssome-
one has contributed the idea of roll-
ing a triangle into a tube which is
crossed in front and fastened on the
ends with brilliantly colored clips.
Several small silk scarves of varying
hues tied together also make an ef-
fective combination to a dark wool
Scarves serve a practical use in
keeping that new hair-do in place
while it dries as well as in offering
protection from the weather. A fluffy
wool plaid in maize and blue is a col-
legiate idea for a football game.-
But the fact is I was singinga
And the carillon was ringing
And my roomate she was swinging
From the ceiling to the floor.
(Circus managers: Attention)
Here I opened wide the door.
Quoth the heckler, "Any food?"
"No," I said, "I'm on a diet."

year's 'Ensian. Miss Patterson was
one of the women whose photographs
appeared in the section refuting the
worn-out theme, "Four out of Five,"
from the Mimes Production of last
Miss Patterson has been very ac-
tive on campus the two years that
she has been here. Besides writing
for Perspectives and appearing in
Play Production's "Julius Caesar" and
the Dramatic Season's "The World
We Make," she has been a member of
the editorial staff of T e Daily, a
member of the make-up committee
for last year's JGP, "Iigh-Falutin'!",
and has worked on League commit-
tees. Along with her knack of turn-
ing out punch lines and her drama-
tic ability, Miss Patterson also does
a talented job of painting.
Uses Grecian Setting
The play is a modern musical com-
edy with a Greek background, from
the period of Socrates. Grebian set-
tings will provide a beautiful oppor-
tunity to play up sets, lighting and
costumes. Simplicity 'and symmetry
will be the keynote of the sets.
In the story itself will be found
a light satire on the utter futility and
foolishness of war. However, this will
be nicely overlaid with songs and
dances, so don't expect to see the play
for its little lessons in pacifism alone.
Courses Aided Writing
Courses in play writing and set de-
signing proved very valuable to Miss
Patterson, to say nothing of the fact
that she is an English composition
major. She lives in Bay City, and is
a member of Delta Delta Delta.
-Looking rather blank at first at the
mention of the $100 which was the
award for the winning play, Miss
Patterson laughed. "Oh, that! I'm
going to spend it the first rainy day
that comes along." And Ann Arbor
weather being what it is, she can
hardly be accused of hoarding. "Con-
fidentially," she added, "I'd rather
act in a play than write one."
