Hello! And how will you have
your next Rush Week, rare or well
But now that it’s over and we
can all talk to everyone again, it
seems especially appropriate to
Welcome all the freshmen who will
probably be setting out on an ad
venturous year in this institution.
This year’s crop - we’re glad to
But for a real greeting, you just
can’t beat the little green “Wel
come Book.” It puts the whole
thing so aptly somehow.
We ran across an intriguing
helpful paragraph that began with
“a few of the questions you will
be asking before long.” We’d like
to offer a preview of some of the
questions put forth in the little
book with some canned answers
that might save some wear and
tear on your otherwise occupied
mind later on.
It’s best you should bear in mind
that the "Welcome Book” advises
that the best answers have already
been prepared and are to be found
in the University library on a spe
cial shelf in the recreational read
The questions? Oh, all right.
1. “How can T enlarge my circle
of worthwhile friends?” (from the
Ans. Coming near the head of
the list, this query seems to be
rated a puzzler. We have pondered
the problem ever since the Wel
come Book fell into our hands and
at this point the solution seems
to be to have your mother send
down a batch of food so that you
can lure your acquaintances into
a lasting friendship. It’ll last as
long as the food does. Or, if you
have a car you are almost sure to
have a large circle of kind and
well-meaning friends about you al
most all the time. And dates, too.
2. "How can I speed up my stud
ies so that I can keep pace with a
Ans. You can ask someone who
knows and steer clear of fast-mov
ing classes, or if you’re foolhardy,
you can just take a chance. Cas
ualties in class are pretty rare.
3. How can I learn to concen
trate so that I will be so absorbed
in my work that I will not be eas
ily distracted or drift into day
Ans. Gosh, as soon as the libo
opens you'd better go into the rec
reational reading room and look
at the shelf of answers. And say,

Glamour Girls Now But -
Wait Until It Rains
The average female upperclassman feels about as gay as a ghoul
when she catches a glimpse of the new freshman coeds. With their
childlike hair ribbons and their unaffected (but so effective!) stares,
they are a real menace to anyone’s peace of mind. Many beautiful heads
of hair have been ripped out, curl by curl, and tossed dismally to the
floor; and many neat nail polish jobs have been ruined by gnashing
teeth, all as a result of this devastating invasion of the campus.
But before you pull out all your
new permanent, or gnaw your nails
completely to the bone- before'

determination to be helpful. And

of warning: “Don’t envy the edu

with high ambitions have frittered
