Excuses to party
by Bret Hodgert
Design Editor
We all need to celebrate. The
human race has been celebrating
for one reason or another since
the beginning of time.
If you are like most people,
you look forward to upcoming
holidays as an excuse to let it all
out and party. Let me ask you
this, “Why wait?” Through the
combined efforts of religons,
governments, and people all over
the world, we now have an excuse
to celebrate EVERYDAY! But
whatever you do, just don’t tell
the postal service.
“Party Excuses” will run every
week in The Print from now on.
This column will give you several
reasons to celebrate every day.
Wed., Feb 11- If you know
where Cameroon is, today is
Cameroon Youth Day. Today is
also Iranian National Day and
Japanese Empire Day. As far as
birthdays go, Thomas Edison
was bom on this day in Febuary.
Thurs., Feb 12- Amazingly
enough, both Charles Darwin
and Abraham Lincoln were bom
on this date in 1809.
Fri., Feb 13- Today is the start
of National Kraut and
Frankfurter Week. If you’re real­
ly smart though, you’ll skip the
cabbage and hot dogs and go to
C.C.C.’s My Bloody Valentines
Sat., Feb. 14- What better
reason to celebrate than Valen­
tine’s Day? If you happen to be a
cult follower of Dionysus, today
is Viticulturists’ Day. Its said that
Dionysians go big for the wine
and merriment on this one.
Oregon became a state today in
Sun., Feb. 15- That ancient
Roman festival of Lupercalia
takes place today. Lupercalia is a
fertility celebration that started
centuries ago and is still
celebrated today. If. you are an
E.R.A activist, you will be happy
to know that today is Susan B.
Anthony’s birthday. Happy Bir­
thday Susie B.
Mon., Feb 16- Today is the
start of International Friendship
Week. It is also the start of the
Ponquet Acadian Winter
Festival. I don’t know what a
Ponquet or an Acadian is, but I
do know that Winter Festival
means Party.
Tues., Feb. 17- It looks like to­
day is actually fairly boring.
You’re on your own for this one.

the man with two brains
Dear Man w/ 2 Brains,
Where does the hair on our
heads come from? It is something
I have always wondered about.
