Letters to the Editor
Can a man be a Christian on a salary of $1.50 a day?
We would like to know what else a person- can be
on $1.50 a day.

Your just as good as gold,
The little maiden swore.
But now his gold is gone,
So he isn’t good no more.
With lipstick highly flavored
And shaving cream that’s sweet,
It seems that when you’re necking now
It certainly is a treat.

The student looking like a bear, r
Because he never cuts his hair,
Should not be gazed upon with scorn,
’Tis not his fault, his locks ain’t shorn.
For if you note, in every chair,
A barber cuts a eo-ed’s hair.
Before we liked to have to wait
For “HIM” to start to operate. ■
■ And chat with him who seemed to know,
What makes your hair refuse to grow.
Because you’d like to hear his slang—
Of jokes appearing in Whiz Bang!
But now, good lord, His yarns they bore!
Who cares what Mary Bickford wore?
Or Rudolph Valentino’s kiss,
Which thrills the heart of every miss.
Oh, lord, my locks will grow, I fear,
From day to day, from year to year,
Until the serpent men call style,
Decrees the girls grow hair awhile.

A Short Fable
Once upon a time a professor, very unadvisedly,
while lecturing in a co-educational instution of higher
learning asked the following question:
Are co-eds dumb?
The roof was taken off the rooms by the spon
taenity of the unanimous answer.
Moral—Girls, don’t be dumb.

“Not so dusty,” said the man on the water wagon
as he turned on another hose.
