P AT-C HES
Have You a P
EVERY EVENING
Now exam week is approaching
At a very rapid rate,
So I think I ought to study
And not have another date.
But the dance is so attractive
That I ought to go once more;
And the Huron sure is pretty
From the wooded western shore,
And the room's too hot for working,
And the stars are shining bright-
Oh, gee whiz, boys, what's the differ-
ence
If I go out just tonight?
A COOL ONE FROM A NICE BERGER
"What is the funniest bone in the
body, .Mr. Berger?"
"The humerus, professor."
USE EASTERN ACCENT
I know a good joke on a prof.
I know it would raise a big laugh.
But if I give it away,
I know, too, hell say'
"Your grade, sir, will be cut in half."
NAME GIVEN ON REQUEST
When the army boys went to De-
troit yesterday one of them received
an invitation to return to Ann Arbor
In a Hudson with a friend. He is now
congratulating himself that he got
even with the D. U. R. ,for one of those
trips to Jackson, because he did not
use the return coupon.
THE WESTERN ACCENT
There was a young miss from N. Y.
Who ate her ice cream with a f.
When asked why she did,
She shifted her quid,*
And answered, "That was learned in
Detroit."
*Of spearmint.
ELLIPTICALLY SPEAKING
"Do you believe in osculation?"
"Assuredly. But at times it does
not take."
"What is the best thing to do then?"
"Try another application a day
later."
ARMY NEWS
Mr. M. G. Hedin, The Wolverine
sports reporter, was in Detroit one
day last week. While there he visited
the recruiting office and the armory.
The boys took him out to the cavalry
grounds where they were training the
horses. The cavalry captain said,
"Why don't you join the cavalry,
Hedin? You can ride all the time,
get good pay, kgood care and good
Hedin. "When I get orders to re-
treat I don't want to have to drag no
horse after me."
