Writing of Earnest Intellectuals in the Literary Review, Henry
Seidel Canby says:
“These men are in earnest. Their faces are drawn, their
teeth glitter, their spectacles flash. Their eyebrows assert
their disillusionment. But they seem to think they are im
portant. That is the trouble. Of course they are important
. . . but the human instinct is to revolt from people who
sit up nights fretting about or discussing their own importance,
or the importance of their age. . . . Too much the fur
rowed brow, the earnest accent, the pondering ponderous ut
terance. Too much thinky-think, talky-talk.”
Disillusionment is a terrible thing anywhere, in any age; it is
fvorse when it is found among college students. In the years immedi
ately after the war when the campus here and elsewhere was fraught
with the restlessness of men returned from unnatural days, one could
look forward to the healing effects of the comparative quiet of col
lege life, and one expected to see that restlessness and that often very
tragic disillusionment subside.
But now few are left who fought and a new college generation
comes on the boards. Where a return to that old pre-war spontaneity
was hoped for there shows an even more disturbing condition. Men,
and women too, are coming to college these days straight from high
jchools with all their guidcposts obscured. Perhaps it is accountable
to a stage in development, perhaps to present-day conditions.
To one who is inclined to the thinky-think and the talky-talk there
is much fodder. Things are more or less topsy-turvy, standards are
more or less awry, hut the whole thing is not going to be remedied
by a great furrowing of brows and flashing of spectacles or even
sitting up nights. There are many responsibilities to be shouldered,
but they can be lightened by a happier outlook on life, which isn’t
ufter all just a thing to be endured. Meet it half way.
Good Judgment and Stubs
On another page of the Emerald today there appears a pronounce
ment from the student advisory committee on the subject of “n. s. f.”
checks, a serious pronouncement brought about by a serious situation.
The committee is surely justified in the means it has taken, for it is
declared that the actions of a few careless students are hurting the
rest of the student body with those who are our friends, the down
town business men. Not only that but it damages the name of an
institution when its men and women lack cither the training or the
responsibility to pay adequate attention to their bank balances.
Wateli your stubs and use good judgment.
Those who flock in great numbers to see “The Sheik" on the screen
and those who devour the pages of the book, may be interested to
know that there is to be a sequel. It is rumored that the name is to
be “Twin Bedouins.’’

THE UNDOING OF CAESAR
One day Caesar was leaning up
against,, a wooden Indian in front of
Brutus ’ cigar store, he was accosted by
a bunko stecrer who said, “Hello,
haven’t I seen you beforef” “I don't
think you have, Jo Jo,” said Caesar,
“T never was in the penitentiary my
self, and if 1 ever saw you outside the
bastile it’s a mighty good thing for
you I wasn't a policeman. You look
la good deal like a local option senti
jment in a German village.” Caesar
was one of the greatest joshers in Rome
at this time, and it tickled him to guy
The bunko man pretended not to no
tioe that he was a joshmark, and
! dropped his grip on the sidewalk.
■■ Ain't you Polonius Appleseedus from
|over at Pompev's crossing?” he asked.
"Not on your little red shawl,” said
Caesar. “I am the ice man. You’re
on the wrong side track, uncle. You’d
better consult an oeculist. Here's an
egg that some chicken laid in your
hair," he said, handing the bunko man
an egg that he carried around to use
in slight of hand tricks that he fre
m entlv did for the boys.
The bunko man passed on and Cae
sar went inside the cigar store and
said. "See me jolly the rube?"
Brutus laughed fit to kill and said.
" While you were jollying the easy
mark he touched you for your watch."
Caesar looked down and saw that it
was so. History does not record what
he said but it was hot stuff.
