The great conflict centers around the
“bob.” It is rumored that dame fashion
is now decreeing long hair, done up

But sohie advocates of feminine free

length” on this question.
A cameraman took a stroll across
the campus the other day, and “shot”
seven of the prettiest coeds in the
University. The first, Alma Farmer,
of Salem, advocate of the extreme
“boy bob,” is firm in her belief that
women will never flock back to long
hair. “Short is so handy, so efficient,
and it ‘feeds so good!!! * ” she declared

More Poor Cows Should

It is a common practice among
dairymen to fatten a cow for tlie beef
barrel each year. More of our poor
cows should be fattened and sold for
beef. After a cow Ims passed tlie. mid
