Ah me, sure and ’tis not with
out a pang we said goodtay to
Baby . . . Perhaps there are
those of you that remember a
small piece of Patter that was
devoted to charmin’ Charlie
Eaton and baby . . . That is, if
there are any of those of you
who read Patter . . . well, seein’
as how Charlie and Baby are
two of the Campus’ better
known characters, we did writ
a wee article on them . . .
Weil, Charlie, late of the ev
er-lovin’ lawr school, returned
last week end to get Baby (the
SX great dane) ... he told
Baby that a match had been
arranged and that Baby was
betrothed to some fascinatin’
great daness in Long Beach . . .
Charlie said that when he told
Baby, Baby jumped up and
down and “was ever so happy’’
We’re inclined to believe its
going to be a child marriage,
i though, for ’tis rumored that
Baby’s betrothed is ONLY
really! . . .
Congratulations and all that
goo to Ituss Hudson and Betty
Jane Biggs . . . For a laddie
who Seesall, this Humbert Boy
gets the wrong slant on some
things . . . Mayhap its from
trying to look through Yale
locks . . . Next time you’re in
the College Side come Vittle
time, try a swiss steak ... it
won’t be a miss-steak on your
part. (Alright, so I ain't neat.)
See you on the late shift . . .
