Of MEN and MIC..
You can all come out of hiding now, you can go where you want to go,
do what you want to do; we don't care! You can see this is our Swan Song .
... Granted you may see the stock head "OF MEN
AND MICE" again next year, if they're too lazy to
, think up a better one, but as a product of OUR
creative genius (?) the column will be a thing of
' " the past after'today. And we are sorry . ... you
know, it's been very nice having department heads,
faculty members, and people in general at our
feet, never knowing when we were going to men-
r .=tion them as being somewhere where they shouldn't
have been with someone they shouldn't have been
with, etc . . . . You see, this was one of the few
uncensored (before it went to press) bits of print
that came to the public eye this summer in the
whole country . . . . The fact that people got violent
about what was prinited after it came 'out didn't
do much good, did it?
Before you all pack up and leave for home we've got lots of apologies
to make .... In general they come under these headings and if your special
grievance isn't mentioned, well, it's just too bad, so there! (1) We didn't
mean that the party, picnic, gathering, , (fill in your complaint)
was as wild as we insinuated. . . . (2) We didn't mean to put you in as out
with HIM. (3) Just because you were dancing with
someone else and your date was giving all the glamour
gals the once-over was no reason that we should have
put him in as a stag .... We are sorry. (4) It wasn't
very nice of us to put you sitting at The Bell with five /
beers in front of you . . . . It must have been quite a)
shock to your family, but it's about time they were
brought out of the dark. (5) We reallymshouldn't haye
mentioned you as a University student when you're 4
still trying to get into the movies for a dime. (6) It
Was an oversight on our part to put you in as going
out with that guy what goes steady with that other girl!
