lack of Curiosity
Defeats Mixer Ad
Bravery is a just a lost art, ap
parently.
....Completely deserted in the
midst of a throng of humanity
in front of the Co-op yesterday
was what purported to be a tele
sope, bearing the enticing in
scription, “Free Look.”
Apparently afraid of a prac
tical joke, or of looking eager, or
something, would-be free-lookers
were staying away in droves.
Honest, though, it just adver
tises a YWCA mixer coming up
this weekend.

(Emerald Special Writer)
NEWS ITEM—“Cornell univer
sity coeds are fed up with beering
dates, some of them claim.” This
writer set out to investigate the
Webfoot attitude on this subject

The question asked was—“Do
you like to go out on beer dates
with the boys you meet.”
Answer No. 1. “I think that
would be swell! When will you be
by to pick me up?”

fore asking it again. After revi
sion it ran thus—“Do you think it
is proper for girls to go out drink
ing beer -with the boys they meet.”
Answer No. 1. “W'hat’s wrong
With it? What are you trying to
imply! Why the very idea! I’ll
have you know that I'd never think
of such a thing. I think you’re
simply horrible. You get out of
here and don’t ever come again.
The nerve of some people. "Why I
never —I went gaily off to buy
some band-aids for the cut on my
brow. Then I re-phrased the ques
tion.
Third revision. “Should boys
buy beer for their dates?” .
Answer No. 1. “I don’t know how
it would taste-so I can’t say. I’ve
had beer with pretzels and potato
chips but never with dates. I should
think it would upset their stomach
terrifically. They grow dates in
Arabia, don’t they? I was in Ara
bia once, just before the war when
my father worked for the -I
ran to the nearest fishpond for a
cool drink of water. Then I re
phrased the question.
Fourth revision. “Why do girls
drink beer when they are out
with boys?”
Answer No. 1. “Do they?”
“I referred her to the freshman
counseler in Gerlinger hall for an
invitation to the Smarty Party.
Then I beheld a beautiful blonde
walking past the Side. I re-phased
the question.
Fifth revision. “Hey, baby,
how about a quiet brew? Just
you and me, whataya say?”
We will continue this topic to
morrow. Answer No. 5 was satis
factory.
