"Now that the Regento3 are
taking so much interest in the
life and safety of students," re-
marked the Cynical Senior yes-
terday, " maybe they will tear
down some of the fire-traps and
tumble-down shacks in which
they hold classes."


* * *

Maybe it was just a coincidence,
but: June 15-last of students leave
town; June 17-Regents place ban on
autos, after delaying it two months.

What's next?
* * *
Clippy Stadium is gone!
And just when the Horse Marines
were going to hold their Class Day
exercises in it, too. Here it is the only
time in the year that the benches
would have been useful, and the B.
and G. boys had to go and move them.
* * *
But the engineers are happy-they
have their senior benches back-way
back, in fact. They are so far from
the diagonal that the boys get tred
hiking over to them.
* * *
BULLETIN: Clippy Stadium has
been located. It is now on the lawn
in front of the Convalescent hospital,
where people are so glad to be in the
open air for a change that they don't
mind looking at even such a horrible
sight as that gem of architecture.
* * *
COMMENCEMENT comes only once
a year-for which we can all be
thankful, especially the B. and G. boys
who had to rake up all the leaves and.
paint all the fire hydrants.
* * *
Now that Commencement is over,
we won't see anything like it until the
next Democratic convention.
* * *
If the mortality rate among tradi-
tions and customs around here is as
high as it was the past year, the next
class can look forward with great glee
to receiving their diplomas through
the mail, instead of waiting all morn-
ing for them.
* * *
Why, according to all the figures on
what a college education is worth, we
should each have been earning $5 per
hour this morning.
Incidentally, if anyone knows of a
newspaper that is willing to pay even
fi,ve dollars a month for the services
of a college graduate, we'd like to
hear about it.
* * r
W'd like to go to a University that
hands you out a job instead of a di-
ploma at Commencement.
* * *
After a year of panning the alumni,
we sort of hate to have the stigma
attached to our own name, but all the
professors seemed anxious to thus
curse us, so here we are. And since
we're here, we might as well make the
best of it.
r* * *
We always thought students were
foolish, childish and useless, And
that alumni were the grandest things
on the face of the earth.
* * *
It has been our only regret that we
have but one life to give to the alumni.
Give us alumni or give us death. We
prefer the latter.
* * *
We wish we could find some word
of cheer to brighten the paths of the
much-trampled on students, but all

we can say is that some day they too
will be alumni, and can come out from
under the heavy wing of the Univer-
sity, out into the "cruel" world, where
they too can act like free men, and
try to live down the fact that they are
