Silly’ Opinions of Fifth’
Do you know what a “fifth”
is ? Doesn’t anyone know what a
“fifth” is?
Ever since the law students baf
fled passersby with an addition

employin gthe mysterious word,
bewildered persons have contin

finally shrugged the whole thing
A survey of the campus yield

a freshman woman, “It’s an ex

added: “A fifth is one part which,
when added to four parts makes

‘‘About the only ‘fifth’ I know is
a ‘fifth’ of Scotch.” Said a senior
woman, “I could give you a def

brief confab at the Theta house,
a junior woman brightly said,
“We think it’s a bore.” A Phi Delt

combination of two tones a fifth
apart, the fifth tone of a scale
reckoning up from the tonic—
To try to clear up some of the
general confusion, vague rumors
from the law school indicate that
a “fifth” is really a “legal term
meaning a self-motivating chat

some debate as to the accuracy of
the statement, however, so sug
gestions have been made that you
consult an “embryonic lawyer.”
