got a head on him Very nice."
Picks Up Mail
Pushing the picture, ruler and
computations a s i d e, Brownson
picked up his unopened mail, re-
garded it for a moment and quick-
ly shoved it into a drawer.
"I'm not going to open any of
this mail until the book comes olt,"
he explained. "Just people scream-
ing at me ... usually write just to
call me horrible names."
Brownson certainly doesn't think

however. With the finished prod-

Can't Comprehend 'U'
"As far as the University itself
goes, I wouldn't pretend to com-
prehend it. It's too vast. I don't
even think President Hatcher does.
"Working on the 'Ensian per se,
however, gives you an idea of the
scope, size and complexity of the
University - but not much insight
into any one part of it. We get a
universal knowledge, not a provin-
cial one."
He stared a moment at the droo-
dles he had been making on the
paper, then Brownson penciled a
large "30" under them and turned
back to his picture and his ruler.

The -end of the semester has
rolled around again.
Thoughts of vacations have
been pushed aside by the pressure
of nearing final examinations.
Student attraction for text-
books, which may have been dor-
mant throughout the semester,
suddenly increases.,o Books which
have been -gathering dust are

by students trying to digest all
the details of a course's subject

tunities to learn before they walk

Methods Vary
Methods of studying vary from,
student to student.
Some prefer the privacy of theirj
own rooms and the convenience
of having all their books and pa-
pers right on hand.
Other students find the quiet
and atmosphere of knowledge
available in campus libraries give
them the initiative for thorough
studying r-

Combine Dates
Coffee dates and study are com-
bined as couples tote their books
to the League or Union snackbars
and review material, oblivious to
noise around them.
Taking advantage of warm
weather and bright sunshine,
many students take a book and
blanket to the nearest stretch of
grass or the Arboretum to spend
the day in silent seclusion.
Whatever the time, place or
method of studying, the reason is
always the same. Students are
making a final attempt to equal
their textbooks in knowledge.
