As.-^ociate etlitor Tlielma Pleak. thi.^ '.veek, Mi.-;.-; CHUCKLES Dr. Bigney: "Of what u.^e are earthworms, other than as .=ub-soil-ers?" Arshaluis: "For fisninsr." Painful Mr. Ciibljison (discussinji' dormitory event at home): "We used our new electric vibrator on the wintlow; it caused an awful groaning sound. Sounded like all tlie spooks in town were coming out to serenade." His father: "Perhaps the window had a pane." The Home Economic girls were testing materials in tlie same rf.om with the Zoology students. The testing process was causing an obno-^ious odor. Student: "Why don't you make a motion that thev take that smell aw.ay ?" Neighbor: "I've been making motions with my nose for the last half hour V)ut it doesn't do anv good." .lUST BEING HAPPY I Just being happy is the keynote to real life, Forgetting persona! enemies—forgetting business strife, Trying to find something to be glad iibout; instead Of finding human sorrow in a soul where pleasure's dead. II Things are not at ail as bat! as first they seem to be, And looking o'er misfortune we can surely something see. That has its point of gladness intermingled with its grief; Remember Pollyanna, finding joy was her belief. III Why can't we take a lesson from this fiction girl of .-miles, Forget we have some ancient grudge —forget we have had trials, Strive on to cause the world to smile, e'en though it be through tears, Make joy the powerlul ruler while . sori'ow dis.uppears. IV Look conflict gladly in the eye, strive . on to do your share; Don't say against Vv)ur fellowmen: "They do not treat me fair." Look up, lift up, strive on, work hard —meet battles with a smile. Erase the frowns, put on the grins, and make this life worth while. —Norman D. Beach. The Gossip: "Do you know that his wife simply worships him?" Cynic: "Yes, they say she offers him a ljurnt sacrifice three times a day." —Exchange. The Other Extreme He (at Sweetser): "Please plav for me." She: "Oh, I'm, not musically inclined tonight!" He: "Well, siug then." And then he wonderetl what made her angry. New student: "Why are the Photos and Sigs so friendly?" Junior: "Why, they are brothers and sisters, you know." New student (horrified): "No! Why I heard that there are at least a half dozen love aifairs in the two societies. O my! what is this school coming to, anyhow?" "Pulling your foot out of mud sounds like an impressive kiss." —A Freshman. YALE'S NEW PRESIDENT A WESTERN MAN Di-. James R. Angel! has just been appointed President of Yale University. His appointment is significant, educationally, from the fact that he is the first western educated man to hold the presidency of an eastern university of the fir.s't rank. Dr. Angeli is a graduate of the University of Michigan. He is the first president of Y'ale who did not graduate from Y'ale. Dean Lucy Franklin of Evansville College paid tribute to the usefulness of Jane Addams as an example of strong character moulding the lives of less able neighbors in her paper on "Neighborliness," read before the Ministerial Association Mondav.

(passing the last pickle at table): "A handsome husband, Miss DeLong, if vou take the last one." Miss DeLong: "No, thank you, I have one." He: "But on what grounds does your father object to me?" She: "On any grounds within a mile of our house." —Exchange. There is no division between the Orient and Occident any more. A person can come from Constantinople to Evansville and talk with new friends about their mutual act|uaint-ances. For instance, Miss Kalenikia-rian has learned that Pi'of. Terpen-ning had as a co-worker in North Russia, Miss Marcia Dunham, executive secretary of the Russian Y^. W^. C. A. Also he worked with Miss Clark and a Russian girl, both Y''. W. C.

Also Mrs. Gilchrist, who has traveled in the East, met on the ship two ladies whom Miss Kalemkiarian knew very well. They were Miss Verkin Markarian, Armenian, who was Miss Kalemkiarian's teacher^ and Miss Elene Palatidan, Greek, a teacher of the deaf and dumb in Constantinople. Modern Views Miss Thomas (in Sociology Class): "A woman ought to know before marriage whether she's going to be a farm hand or not." Mr. Adams: "Y'es, and a man ought to know before hand whether he's going to be hen-pecked or not." She: "How do the W^ilsons like their two - room kitchenette apartments?" He: "0! they have no room for complaint." —Exchange. Wanted: Brains Dr. Bigney (to Zoology class which was working on the nervovts system of the frog): "If any of you have anj-extra brains, please divide them up with the others." The Right W^ord "I've had a chance for whoopin-' coops," a little fellow said. "No, whoopin'-cops," he tried again, shaking hard his head. "0 shoot!" he grinned, "it's chicken-cops that makes your face all red? Now* then I know, it's chicken-coops," himself he corrected.
