Victory To Be Marked

windows of Jewish homes and syn-
agogues the world over, as Hanu-

Students Entertain Hospital Patients at Christmas Parties
According to Prof. Place, gradu-
ates of the program are in great
demand. Most students upon gradu-
ation start to work with top execu-
tives in the fields of industry, mer-
chandising or government.
The certificate courses in the
program may be combined with a
regular degree program in liberal
arts, education or business admin-
Special permission may be grant-
ed to students to elect typing and
shorthand during their freshman
and sophomore years. Other cer-
tificate courses may not be elected
until the junior and senior years.
Elect Other Courses
Since the College of Literature,
Science and the Arts does not grant
credit for the secretarial courses,
the student enrolled in this school
must elect the courses in addition
to the requirements for a bachelor
of arts degree.
Students who h a v e already
earned a bachelor's degree may
complete the requirements for a
certificate in one year. A post-grad-
uate student may earn both the
certificate and degree of master of

THE INTELLIGENCE QUOTIENT
OF NED FUTTY
Chloe McColgate was a beautiful coed who ma iored in psych and
worked in the I.Q. testing department of the university. She did
not work there because she needed money; she wcrked there because
she loved and admired intelligence above all t]hsings. "I love and
admire intelligence above all things," is the way si e succinctly put it.
Ned Futty, on the other hand, was a man who could take intelli-
gence or leave it alone. What he loved and admir Ad above all things
was girls. "What I love and admire above all hings is girls," is
te way he put it.
One day Ned saw Chloe walking by on the camp is. "Holy Toledo!"
he exclaimed. "How sweetly flows that liquefaction of her clothes!"
The following day he saw her walking past again. "Great balls of
fire!" he exclaimed. "Next, when I cast mine eyes and see that brave
vibration each way free, 0, how that glittering taketh me!"
When he saw her again the next day, he could no longer contain
himself. He ran up and blocked her way. "Excuse me," he said,
tugging his forelock, "I am Ned Futty and I love you beyond the
saying of it. Will you be mine?"
She looked at his quarter-inch haircut, his black rimmed glasses,
his two-day beard, his gamy T-shirt, his tattered jeans, his de-
composing tennis shoes. "You are not unattractive," she admitted,
"but for me beauty is not enough. Intelligence is what I require
in a man."
"I'm smart as a whip" said Ned with a modest blush. "Back home
everybody always said, 'You got to get up pretty early in the morning
to get ahead of old Ned Futty."'
"Maybe so," said Chloe, "but if you don't mind, I'd like to make
sure. Will you come into the I.Q. testing department with me?"
"With you I would go into a malted milk machine," cried Ned
Futty and laughed and smote his thigh and bit Chloe's nape in an
excess of passion and high spirits. Scampering goatlike, he followed
her into the I.Q. testing department.
"First I will test your vocabulary," said Chloe.
"Shoot!" said Ned gaily and licked her palm.
"What does juxtaposition mean?"
"Beats me," he confessed cheerily.
"How about ineffable?"
"Never heard of it," smiled Ned, plunging his face into her clavicle.
"With fur on?" said Ned doubtfully.
Chloe sighed. "How are you on arithmetic?" she asked.
"A genius," he assured her.
"My feeling exactly!" said Ned with an approving nod. "What's
"If a man earns fifty dollars a month," said Chloe, "and saves 12%
of his earnings, how long would it take him to save $100?"
"Forever," said Ned. "Who can save anything on $50 a month?"
"How do you find a square root?"
"How should I know?" replied Ned, giggling. "I'm no square."
"How are you on English?" asked Chloe.
"I speak it fluently," said Ned with quiet pride.
"What is the present tense of wrought?"
"Wreet," replied Ned; clutching Chloe to him and dawini, s
of the Maxixe.
"Next I will test you for manual dexterity," said Chloe. She handed
him a boardc punched full of oddly shaped holes and a collection of
oddly shaped pegs. "Fit the pegs in the holes," she instructed him.
"Let's neck instead," suggested Ned.
"Maybe later," said Chloe. "First the pegs."
He fumbled about for a longish interval. Finally he tired of it and
reached for Chloe.
But she fended him off. "Ned Futty," she said, "you are dumb.
You have the highest dumbness score of anybody I have ever tested.
Consequently I cannot be your girl, for I love and admire intelligence
above all things."
He hurled himself on the floor and clasped her about the knees.
"But I love you!" he cried in anguish. "Do not send me from you, or
you will make my world a sunless place - full of dim and fearful
"I am sorry," she answered, "but you are too dumb."
"Reconsider, madam," he begged, "else a miasm looms before me."
"Go," she said coldly.
