Bennett Cerf,
Famous Wit,
To Give Talk
Ticket sale for the lecture by
Bennett Cerf Tuesday will open
at 10 a.m. tomorrow at the box
office of Hill Auditorium, where
the lecture will take place.
Cerf, publisher, author and Phi
Beta Kappa, will lecture on
"Changing Styles in American
Humor." As the author of a num-
ber of joke anthologies-"Shake.
Well Before Using," "Try and
Stop Me," and "Anything for a
Laugh"-Cerf should know what
he's talking about.
Jokes, however, are not the only
subject in which Cerf is pro-
ficient. He has been the head of
his own publishing firms for
more than 20 years.
For short periods after his
graduation from Columbia in
1920, Cerf was a reporter and a
clerk on the stock exchange.
Then he became one of the many
vice-presidents of a large pub-
lishing house.
After a short time in this posi-
tion, the changeable Cerf helped

HE DID just that, the student
admits. And also he went back to

But still his hair fell.
Finally, in desperation he de-
