Footsore and Weary Our
Pilgrim Continues on
His Arduous Trip
BOOK I (Continued)
T!ie next dny in my dream I saw
Student pass into the Labyrinth of
Registration,- through which all
new pilgrims must pass before they
enter into the Happy Land of Col
legia. The great book, which Stu
dent received before entering #into
the Labyrinth, he carried with him.
Its purpose is to disconcert the pil
grim and to prepare his mind for
the ordeal which is to follow.
At length, footsore and weary and
covered with dust, lie turned up a
pathway which he had not before
noticed and at its end he perceived
a largo house. At last, ho sighed
deoply, have I come to the cud of
And in my dream I fuv Student
stride up to the door of the house
and rap thereon with his staff. The
door flung open at his knock, and
two physics, clad in white, seized
upon him roughly and drew him in
side. There they did sfrip him of
his raiment and set him upon a
stool, where one pounded upon his
breast and marked thereon with a
chalk. Another did measure his
breast and his waist and his loins,
and a third prodded at his eves and
his nose and his throat with a short
stick. At length, having done with
their sport, they marked in his great
book, and returned his clothing to
him, saying: (io forth!
.So in my dream I saw Student
once more fare forth into file Laby
rinth of Registration. Therein he
wandered at length, and finally did
come unto the house of the Adviser, i
wherein he entered timidly.
STUDENT: Sire, my name jj
Student, and 1 am a pilgrim from a
far-away village called Ignorance,
and I have lost my way in the Laby
rinth of Registration. Const thou
ADVISER: Take this and this
and this, and to the Duke.
And so saying lie marked four
times in the great book which Stu
Anon as Student continued in his
wanderings lie met another pilgrim,
I called Senior, like unto himself, ex
| copt that he bore no staff but wore
■ instead the traces of a beard upon
liis upper lip. Senior did shiver
continuously, for lie was (dad only
in his under garment.
SENIOR: Whence forest thou,
STUDENT: Alas, friend, follow

tion 1 did set out on a pilgrimage
to the City of Education that i
might avoid the dank sluggish River
of Forgetfulness, the dank Valley
of Mediocrity, and the City of Illit
eracy, whose inhabitants are the
Morons and the Submerged Tenth.
But to, I am lost in thy Labyrinth
of Registration and know not which
way to turn. Const thou aid me to
find the castle of the Duke Regis
SENIOR: Yea, fellow pilgrim, I
can guide thee thither, but by my
troth it is indeed a fearsome place.

Step as He Tries to
STUDENT: Why, fellow pilgrim?
SENIOR: The Duke Registrar is
by instinct an exceeding avaricious
being, and this trait increaseth in
him from year to year. J went, unto
iiis castle with all the scrip which
I could accumulate, and behold, he
hath left to me nought but my
STUDENT: I have provided my
self with a quantity of scrip in ac
cordance' with the counsel of the
Sage Ambition. Perchance it shall
be sufficient to satisfy his demands.
