President Thwing of the Western
Reserve University present an inter
esting array of college slang In an
article in the Christian Endeavor
World. Different colleges, he says,
have different words and phrases, and
few words and phrases are common
to many. Such are "swipe," "soak,1
"spike," "Josh," "hen-medic," "goose
egg," "grlng," "crib," and many other
words that are used only at a few col
leges. A student, for instance. In on?
college may "bat" (make a perfect
recitation) and Bit in a "bear box"
(the faculty pew In chapel). On going
from the church he may become a
"belt chaser," walking with a "co-ed"
and going to his dinner he has a "ber
ry" (a good thing). In the afternoon
he prepares himself for "blb"( that Is,
for recitation of the Bible). It Is pos
sible that his "belt chaser" walks
with a "bird" (a girl) to the "bird
cage" (a dormitory for women stu
dents). It is also possible that the
" bird" may be a "birdie" (one who
Is eager to make acquaintance with
men without an introduction). He
may, prefer to call his walk a "pike"
and also he may prefer to walk with
a "plugger" rather than with a "bird"
and while walking to talk about po
leck" (political economy) or "polst"
(political science). A student may
be a "moke" (an easy going fellow)
and In that case he Is apt to be
"porky" (very poor) in his work, and
consequently gets a "zip" (a zero In
marks), and Is In danger of being
rusticated (suspended). Of course,
he must become a "repeater (one
reaulred to repeat a year's work) If
he hones ever to get bis "rag" (dl
