Student Sets Forth Secret
Woes of Every Roommate
(By Associated Collegiate Press)
Host students are inclined to
bear the foibles of their roommates
in more or less anguished silence,
hut a University of Wisconsin co
ed burst into articulate annoyance
recently, and in a communication
to the Gripers’ Club, student paper
column, set forth the woes of all
roommates everywhere.
‘‘My dear, dear roommate,” she
wrote, "we have now enjoyed each
other’s delightful company for
three whole weeks. When I first
met you, that beautiful maiden’s

position, your happy-go-lucky air

things have come up that irk me.
I have tried to tell them to you
time and again, but when I see
you go blithely through the day, a
personification of a ray of sun
shine, I haven’t the heart to take
the chance of spoiling your happi

am taking this opportunity to get
these irksome things off my mind,
out of my hair. I know you won't

will do no good. At any rate,

Psychologist Taylor Gets
Queer Inquiry for Advice
Psychologists arc confronted
with the queerest things! The
other day H. R. Taylor, chairman
of the department of psychology
in the University, received a letter
from the Mail-Well Envelope com
pany of Portland, asking learned
counsel upon tire subject of vision
al impression.
It seems that the company ran
an ad stating that “87 per cent of
all impressions are received
through the eyes.” Some customer
in Salt Lake City was self-think
ing enough to question the veracity
of the statement, and wrote to the
company asking for verification of
it. A form letter for their sales
campaign had been followed, and
all attempts of investigation re

suited in discovering that every
one had taken the statement as
an “accepted fact.”
So, they wrote to Dr. Taylor
whose research explained, in part:
"Professor Griffitts of Michigan
reported studies of this kind in
which 90 per cent of his subjects
relied mainly upon visual imagery.
This, however, is not the same
thing . . .”
No definite study has yet been
found upon which the original
statement might have been based.
