Packed Life Saga Lived
In Thrilling Four Months

hem corny? Thank you, nurse.
Yes, two every half hour. I
have been on the 'Ensian staff
for some four months now.
Those four months reached a
glorious zenith last Monday
morning when I came to at
4:30 a.m. and found myself hur-
rying down MaynardStreet with
a small bale of new 'Ensians
under each arm, fresh and slith-
ery from the presses.
She swooped abou on her-
ebony broom-stick uttering little
mewing cries, and occasionally
urging us on with a note or two
from the pewter tibia she always
carried about with her in the
wee, witching hours. Ah, Susan!
Shall I ever forget that rainy
afternoon when you and the Art
Editor sat in the office and tried
to figure out an appropriate
color scheme for the forthcom-
ing issue? I suggested black and
blue and rose-to leave. Then
Griff, putting aside his yo-yo
for the moment, offered up the
revolutionary idea of having an
arrangement of varying shades
of white throughout the book.

the bands of white at the top
and bottom of each page.
It was the felt they helped tie
the book together -although I
think a little chewing gum and
baling wire would have helped
more. Then too, there was the
afternoon when, after gooily past-
ing on and cataloging the 200
senior pix, a man named AAAAA-
ZINEIN walked in and asked that
his name-and pic-be included.
We smiled (a bit idiotically,
but manfully), ripped off all of
the 200 pix, and lo! AAAAA-
ZINEIN'S name led all the rest!
What fun! What foam! What
spunk and drive! But at last
all was done. All those weeks of
The 'Ensians were out! The
AhT editor, seeing what the press
had done to all of his beautiful
white designs, promptly committed
Those naughty printers-how
they do inject a merry spirit of
chance into an issue! You know
what you hand in to be printed.
You hope that that is what will
be returned to you. Or a reason-
able facsimile. It never is. But
-that's life. Or is it the 'Ensi-
an? Make mine oats-yes, thank
yo, just a dash of lemon.
And so, with the picture of our
beloved Editor floating astigmat-
ically before our eyes (amid the
spots), we take leave of our fellow
members of the staff and walk
slowly toward the sunset, reading
