Tale of Woe
By Thomas Knapp
One usually thinks of a hospital
ss an institution peopled with ail
ing individuals and surrounded by
a veil of quietude generally mixed
with something akin to awe. It
takes but one brief visit to the Uni
versity infirmary to bring the rea
lization that such is not the case.
At least not here. ,
Of course patients here come
under a slightly more specialized
classification than the general run
of hospital inmates. We don’t have
the aged and infirm to deal with.
By that I mean the infirm of body.
As for mental condition, I feel
myself hardly qualified to form an
opinion. I don’t mean that there
might be cause to suspect any
mental ailments, but some ailments
could be purely mental, or, to make
the matter clearer, imaginative.
Not, of course, that any of our
students would accept the quiet of
the infirmary as an escape from a
few days of the “old grind.” While
the plan is pleasant enough, there
are distinct disadvantages to using
it as a retreat.
The place is quiet tonight; more
so than usual. Due to the con
tagious ailments, influenza for one,
there will be no visitors for a
while. That in itself isn’t such a
bad idea, but with the announce
ment of this decree, the greater
portion of our patients have mir
aculously recovered. Purely coin
cidental, of course. It makes it
more lonely for some of us steady
There are a few pet fears around
here, like the marauding nurse,
who approaches at all hours of the
night, with a long, sharp needle,
but that is done merely to dis
courage any (a rare case, indeed)
u tio might be feigning illness. I
think someone suspects me, from
the looks of my tray. Lamb chops
and rice for a week.
If any one wants a few' days rest
horn trouble and care, and is will
ing to brave the dangers of the
establishment, just develop some
thing non-contagious and drop
around. I’d like a game of gin
Toward the end of the w’ar with
Germany, General Eisenhower was
explaining to Winston Churchill the
good influence of the British Tom
mies on GI’s . . . how they toned
down GI exuberance. Churchill
beamed with pride.
Just then a GI came rushing into
the room. “General, can I borrow
your jeep?’ he demanded.
“See what I mean?" said Eisen
hower. “A year ago lie wouldn’t

“Carmen” will be presented by
the San Carlo Opera company
Tuesday at 8:20 p.m. in McArthur
court. The opera, by Bizet, has
been presented over the air many
times by the Metropolitan Opera
company in response to pleas sent
in by listeners.
The company is being brought
to the University under the aus
pices of the Educational Activities
board. Tickets may still be pur
chased at their office in McArthur
court. Students are required to pay
60 cents in addition to showing
their ASUO card. Veterans may
purchase tickets for their wives by
paying 60 cents for them.
Starring as Carmen is Coe
Glade, messo-soprano. Miss Glade
has sung the role of Bizet’s heroine
more often than any other singer
during the past two decades. She
has black hair, flashing eyes and,
in general, fits Bizet’s description
of the heroine.
Carlo Morelli is cast, as Esca
millo, leading male role of “Car
men.” He is the outstanding bari
tone of the San Carlo Opera com
pany. Mr. Morelli has also starred
in “La Traviata,” “11 Trovatore,”
and “Rigoletto.” Critics agree that
“this fine baritone is one of the
most intelligent vocalists in

In previous years, each of the
advertising honoraries has spon
sored an all-campus dance. To in
sure students the latest in the way
of an “advertised dance,” the two
joined forces this year, combining
outstanding features from both of
the other dances traditionally held.
Finds Odd Table
A money-changer’s table, such
as was used during the Middle
Ages in Europe, will be demon
strated by Dr. Burt Brown Barker,
vice-president of the University,
at 2 this afternoon in the faculty
room of Friendly hall.
While Dr. Barker was traveling
through Europe, he saw many of
these tables at museums, but when
he asked about them, he was told
that they were “peasant tables.”
At a Paris antique shop he saw
another of these tables and bought
it. Loosening a few screws that
had been put in, he found that the
top of the table slid forward re
vealing places for the money.
Seeing another table at an Eng
lish museum and being told that
it too was a “peasant table,” Dr.
Barker made an appointment with
the curator and demonstrated for
him that it was in reality used
by a money-changer.
'The tables are so constructed
that only the top need be taken
home at night, leaving the heavy
legs standing on the streetcorner
where the money-changer operated.
