SPEAKING ...
OFF THE CUFF
I'M TOO BUSY By Virginia Robertson
Women's Editor
A COLLEGE CAMPUS is like a big city in many ways but there is a
curious contradiction between distances here and in the country.
In the country, even though neighbors may live miles apart, they
know just what is happening and they take an active interest in other
people.
But on a college campus, where people live in close quarters, where
distances between old friends may be slight, you're hardly even
acquainted with the person next door.
I'm afraid it's our busyness that separates us from our friends.
We become caught up in our own separate little whirlpools of life. We
are feverishly involved with this responsibility and that assignment
and this requirement. Our activities drag us along at an unending
breakneck pace.
Activities are fine, but sometimes don't you wish you could harness
them and not let them pull you at full speed along life's all too short
highway? At full speed, we miss so much.
Something has to suffer from this lack of time that is our own,
and more likely than not it will be those casual and incidental
relationships.
We miss that friendly coffee date with an old friend that half
hour playing cards and talking, the fun of playing the piano, just
for our own enjoyment. We miss getting off that letter to an old
friend that we've been meaning to contact for so long. We miss what
H. C. Colton called "the secret of perpetual youth," taking time off to
play. We miss stopping to think of what we're doing here and where
we might be going.
Sometimes, when we permit months to elapse, without seeing an
old friend, we may discover, with a pang of regret, that someone who
may really mean a great deal to us will no longer be around. Then, we
think of all the things we might have done or said to make their lives
a little happier or more cheerful. But then, it's much too late.

FEMME FATALES-Chosen queen of the 1956 mudbowl contest
yesterday was Alpha Xi Delta's "Sophie Tucker," portrayed by
Phil Beach. Placing second was Collegiate Sorosis and third place
honorable mention was awarded to Delta Gamma. The judges
decisions were based on originality of costume, originality of
candidate, femininity, audience appeal and judge appeal.

Interestingly, you never know just how much a smile, a pat on
the back or a cheerful word can mean to someone. We all keep our
troubles to ourselves for the most part, and yet, when all seems wrong,
another can help, even though unconsciously.
Probably we all have such thoughts but seldom pass them on. As
well as being slightly bashful, we're chasing elusive Mr. Time, trying
to discover where he has gone.
Some say it's the fault of our society. With our cities getting s
bigger and modern living growing more tense and hurried, we become{
caught in the hubbub and hurry.
Whatever the cause, it is we who suffer in the long run froma
things we miss. Possibly, we should try to avoid spreading ourselves
so far that we have no depth. Usually we can make time for the things
that are most important, if we try.
