Tamam, Dear Sir:
De profundis clamavi ad te. Last
semester I survived a course in the
Topography and Monuments of ancient
Rome wit hthe grade of A, and last
night I went to the Arc. and saw a
nice representation of the Roman for-
um said to have been taken from the
front of Nero's palace which must
have been snapped from the Basillica
Aemilia. At least it was looking
slightly south of west;, and Nero's
"Golden House" was located on the
Palatine Hill's southern side over-
looking the end of the Circus Max-
imus and without a possible view of
the western end of the Forum.
If there had been a sign at the be-
ginning of the show saying "Educa-
tion Pictures" I would have forgiv-
en them, but this was meant to be ac-
curate. Oh, well-but you will look
into it wont you?

Daily Disserhation
Golf, greater national pastime claims
our undivided attention today. It
was on a balmy June day that we
were setting out to play a mean lit-
tle game when a gent says: "Hey,
how's for taking us along, hey?" an
we says "yes" in a non-committal
tone of voice and he goes along and
we get set and then he says: "Hey,
how do you hold one of these here
clubs anyway, hey?" and we brains
him and they're going to hang us, but
we don't give a damn all of which
brings us to what we was going to say
Golf is a great game. See you to-
morrow as Maetinee would say which
is plagiarism but we don't care any-
way.-And so's your old man.
Olaf the Great's Sleepytime Story
Now that your alarm clocks have
rung and you are ready to go to
sleep, Uncle Olaf will tell you all
a sweet little story about a man.
Just tuck your little tootsies close
and shove cotton in your ears and
were all ready.
Out in the land where men are
men and every dog is a police dog
there lived a little boy named Knute.
His last name was Swelgison, and
that was his papa's name and I guess
his mama's too. In a little shack
which made a sardine can look like
a ball room, he was raised with his
thirty brothers and sisters. He was
he smallest of the little family, being
only six feet three and two thirds in
his unmentionable feet. Well, anyway,
he grew up, which is enough to ex-
pect of any child, and went to the city
to earn his daily bread-
ie lDeveloped a Hobby
Having .a soc klike holeproof (adv.)
he soon entered the pugilistic ring,
but also developed a hobby (now stop
and gaze upon figure 888888) which
rocked him like Gibraltar (not an
adv.) Thus hobby was cracking safes
(see figure 987654321). Once he made
one too many wise cracks and now
he 's cracking "big ones" in a nice
big stone foundry.

It is the sisters who play the more
striking part in this surge to the acad-
emic shades. Between 1900 and 1910
they held their own. During this de-
cade the women students increased
by 66 per cent, as against 65 per cent
for the men. In 1910 they drew down
33 per cent of the total number of
baccalaureate degrees, as against 32
per cent in 1900. But in 1920 the wo-
men graduates were 40 per cent of the
total Still more striking was the rise
in women students. The enrollment
for men in 1922 represented a gain of
125 per cent over 1910; but for the
women the gain was 160 per cent.
Thus, if in our proposed index of
civilzation we include woman's pro-
I gross as a commodity, we strengthen
the argument for optimism. The
whole nation is going to college more
frequently, and women are, relative-
ly, going more frequently than men.
Where do the women go after they
leave college? Presumably into mar-
riage, ito school teaching and into
business. That would be a fair infer-
ence from the fact that while the wo-
Thien college graduates in 1920 consti-
tuted 40 per cent of the total, the
number of women who obtained pro-
fessional degrees in the following year
was a little more than 5,000, as
against 70,000 men. The teachers'
colleges aid normal schools are not
included in the "professional" schools.
It would thus seem that the women
of America come much closer to at-
taining the ideal set forth by the col-
lege presidents, of an education that
prepares for life rather than for a
living. A second assumption that
would seem to be Justified is that the
middle west and the west are send-
ing their daughters to college more
frequently than the east. Our endow-
ed women's colleges in the east could
never have accommodated the in.
crease in women students from 28,000
in 1900 to 160,000 twenty years later.
