Not the End .
A recent test of literary judgment
given in the English department
showed there was considerable di

teaching device and that grabs he

suggestion which might well be util

After all, the real object of the
test should be to demonstrate
whether or not the professor has
“pit across’’ his subject matter to
the class. ,Short tests ca,u only

Several donut baseball games

in to veritable quagmires and the

common to all donut teams, has
made the intramural sports program
