Christmas Shopping For 'Male Animal'1
Will No Longer Result In Nervous 'Tics'
By STAN WALLACE
When it's spring, a young man's
fancy lightly turns to thoughts of
love. But when it's Christmas time, a
young coed's fancy lightly turns to
thoughts of what she is going to buy
her pet male animal. At least men
like to think that this is the case.
'Tis no longer spring, but it is
again Christmas time, so (naturally),
girls' thoughts are lightly turning.
This job is indeed no easy task. It
has driven the most buxom of women
batty. So herewith and to-wit we are
offering a few hints on what the par-
ticular type of male animal you have
in mind would most appreciate.
Before attempting a solution to any
problem we must define terms and
types. In this case, the definition of
male is highly debatable among the
local women; but it is safe to say that
he consists of a two legged creature
specifically designed to please and
provide local women with a good time.
All may not subscribe, but suffice it
to say that we-know that is what men
do, or is it, girls?
An animal, well, that isn't too diffi-
cult. A casual glance at an economics
major will give the best picture avail-
Of particular types there are many.
Herein we shall treat of a mere few.
First there is the much degraded
and highly feared male wolf. He in-
deed presents a problem to many girls
for they are not quite sure that he
deserves a gift. If you have a pet
wolf, senorita, you have no doubt
learned how to handle him by now.j
In case you haven't we suggest a copy
of Sir Ferrol Eynns' new classic-THE
EXTREME NECESSITY OF PRO-
CEEDING WITH CAUTION.
Those of you who are confronted
with the particular type known in
these parts as a bear, your problem
should be fairly simple. A bear is he
who .. . but you know much better
than we. Present him with a list of
carefully selected places "to which
you don't want to go again." The bet-
ter part of wisdom dictates that you
put the great outdoors exemplified by
the Arboretum at the top of the list
and procede from there to the base-
ment of a local theatre, the long way
home, and the dark room, you know
where, on Saturday nights.
Gift for "Lamb"
A powder puff,,.your sorority pin, a.
box of vitamin pills, all ne'atly
wrapped in face tissues will make an
ideal gift for your local tamnb. Lambs'
are a peculiar type of animal to han-
I dle. Their physical qualities may not
be much, but they do have a personal-
ity that will kill you when you draw
it out. This type demahds much care-
ful attention, so we suggest that you
add two tablespoons of "'well planned
prodding" to insure perfect results.
Men at times can be very strange,
for we know some who Are. With this
truism in mind, we suggest care in
selecting the ideal gift for' your "he

appreciate a good resoundingthump

clined, so proceed" at your own risk.

out you have probably wondered be-
fore now what to get for your room-
mate. "I want to get her something
nice," you think-and you think
again, and then you wonder. These
suggestions are offered to relieve you
For those of you who have a liberal
allowance, pajamas, are the ideal gift.
They're something that everybody
wants more of, and they're to be had
in various colors, materials, and pat-
terns. (A wooly pair would be appre-
