appearances the chivalry of the remote past does not exist Sir Walter Raleigh gave chivalry a boost and had his name written in history when he spread his coat over a muddy pool for Queen Eliza beth to tread over But only Sir Walter Raleigh seen near the school comes in cans and contains nicotine King Arthur and his gallant knights would blush in shame it they to watch the movements of many a modern youth Girls caugh in the traffic whirl at noon have hardly any chance of escaping with no bruises for when the noontime horde of students go to lunch they abandon all thoughts of chivalry Soys you and you and you Lets all come forth with a few man ners in the ensuing months The experience of being chtvalric will be something of a novelty no doubt but it should be an interesting one Herald blow the trumpets Chivalry will make a comeback DONT PASS UP ENGLISH LITERATURE Are you one of the students who is thinking already of passing up SBnglish literature because American literature is so

bring the ducks Traffic in Halls Topic in Classes Many Solutions Are Offered by Students Traffic in the Halla was the topic discussed Monday in the high school classes This was the first of a series of discussions which will be carried on throughout the year un der the new system whereby the students are given a part in the government of the school The boys suggestions centered on the jam on the stairway going Into the boys locker room which is situated in the basement They of fered the solution that the door to the locker room be opened so that the north entrance could be used A constant hindrance is the block ing of traffic by students who loi ter in the middle of the hall As a remedy it was suggested that a black line be painted along the halls about one and onehalf yards from each side so that those desiring to chat with a friend could step back of this line thus leaving the center of the hall open for those who are in a hurry Another suggested that the hall be divided into four lanes the outer two for those going rath er slowly and the inner two for those going more rapidly Students seemed to feel that the congestion on the stairs could be re lieved by painting a line down the center If that failed they thought that it would be a good idea to use two stairways for those going up and the other two for those going down At noon the halls are quite crowd ed and as a remedy for this the suggestion was made that the stu dents not be allowed to enter unti a specified time and then have al the floors open to them Many advo cated the system used in previous years that of 35 minute lunch per iods and two shifts The opinion was voiced that if 208 study hal was also opened at noon under the supervision of teachers many upper classmen would go there to study They gave as the reason for theii belief the fact that many pupils si on the steps from third to fourth floor and study whereas if the study halla were open they go there rattierthai block the traf fie going uj

Press Agents More Dutch Uncles Take your choice of a press agent or Dutch uncle If your work is of such a caliber that it needs no cor rection whatsoever have someone act as a press agent for you What is a press agent It is not an agent going on a house to house canvass to see if you need to have some pressing done but it is a very good friend who will talk up your art icle to the editors of the Cub What is a Dutch uncle It is not that cherished uncle from Holland but it is someone who gives you suggestions or construc tive criticisms in composition From the looks of papers which come tc the CubGazette staff we need fewer press agents and more Dutch uncles Wasp Disturbs H S Class in History A history class was rudely inter rupted last week by the sudden en trance of a wasp through the win
