sidelines, eyeing the fillys in the crowd with
a glance of such a calibre that one, when
catching it, practically hears howls nearby.
2. The Rabbit. Titled because of a nervous
working of the mouth and a shiftiness of
the eyes, observable when it asks the female
to dance. The dancing of this species al-
ways consists of an exhausted shuffling of
the feet and a slight lifting and lowering of
the shoulders, accompanied by a violent ner-
vous twitch. It murmurs such brilliant
things as "Nice dance," or (when feet en-
counter feet, sharply) "Excuse me," or sim-
pler still, "Ouch!"

In a burst of pity, you cut in on the pygmy she
is dancing with, and brother, how you pay and

at the wolf line. They will look past you. You
subtly flap a dollar bill in their direction.
They will laugh a cackly laugh. Give up, we
advise you. The only antidote is the usua
medicinal one, or a bribe to someone to tell you
you have an urgent phone call.
But watch your step, and none of you will
need antidotes. In fact, just stay at home.
Knitting gives you a much more benevolent
feeling toward humanity, in general.
3. The There's-One-At-Every-Party Fiend. This leprous thing is the
enthusiastic animal whom you see waving at everyone and everything you
pass. He is the boy we were impressed with when we were a freshman, and
the' boy who will impress you, if you're as dumb. He keeps his eyes wide
open so that he won't miss waving at a single one of his acquaintances. Only
staying hands of kind friends stop him from dashing up to the house dog
to shake hands with it. This disease can be recognized by its terpsichorean
methods; it dances, in brief, like a dromedary with the staggers.
