ADD SIGNS OF SPRING:
The robin’s nest on the outside
of Friendly . . . The babies
hatched only the other day and
sit with their mouths open wide
while mamma hovers beside them
dangling a worm from her bill
, . . Most pastoral and charming.
Also the pink dogwood by the
door of Friendly nearest Thir
teenth is starting to bloom ... A
pink dogwood is much more en
trancing than a white one . . .
More dashing somehow. . . .
There are still people about
who believe in Spelling Phoneti
cally . . . Witness: Sign in gro
cery store: “TOMALIES,” and
note on menu to the effect that
for the asking (plus some cash)
the eager diner may consume
“CURRAY.” . . .

On account of this will be the
last “Good Taste Misplaced’’ ever
to clutter up the printed page,
some bright soul suggested that
it might be a good time to let
the populace in on the secret of
WHAT ON EARTH the title
Means Anyhow Also, to permit
Mr.! Moore to come out of his fog
of misapprehension and dismay
over said title, the explanation is
If you know your Gilbert and
Sullivan you caught on long ere
this. The line is from a little
whimsey dreamed up many long
years agone by said G. and S.
and labeled “Patience, or Bun
thorne’s Bride,” which is all
about Oscar Wilde, (a poet, in
case you’ll admit you don’t know
who he might be. . . .)
In the middle of the show,
Bunthorne stamps out into the
middle of the stage and bursts
into a recitative followed by a
song . . . WELLLLL. . . . the title
of the column is in the middle
of the recitative, and so now you
know all. . . .
Satisfied ? ? ? ?

Hadja noticed how delighted
the girls who are going to be on
the campus for summer school
are? Well, who wouldn’t be with
all the army coming that is com
ing. . . .

And with this final shrug of a
shoulder, Good Taste Misplaced
smiles pleasantly at any kind
souls who ever read it during the
year and departs. . . .
