A special theme win run through the entire subject and stars a very prominent Auburn student whose name will not be released until its appearance. The subject we a be shown All Day saturday at the Tiger according to or. Coats and features scenes from the dances the grand March Dick Stabile a orchestra and shots of students. Quot nonsense Quot says the editor Quot just Plain simple nonsense Quot by Edwin Godboldt there was an old stupid who wrote All this below we quote. His want of All sense was something immense. Which makes him a person of note. Almost any Good anthology of american poetry that you pick up win contain that most amazing bit of nonsense by Gerlett Burgess i never saw a purple cow i never Hope to see one but i can Tell you anyhow id rather see than be one. Now i have described this production As nonsense and i have therefore no doubt led the Reader to suppose that i look on it with contempt. Far from it As a child i ran across that nonsense verse and memorized it thinking it the most Irres Tible and musing thing i had Ever heard. A great Deal of that Appeal still remains. During my last year in High school i Learned that the author of that piece after being characterized for years As a the Man who wrote the purple cow a when in reality he had written much More serious literary productions published this of yes i wrote the purple cow in a sorry now i wrote it but i can Tell you anyhow. Ill kill you if you quote it. A but that a nothing but nonsense a the Reader probably says. A exactly a i answer. And that is the very reason i like it. It is with chuckling fascination that i recall my childish treble sing singing the quaint words of the Pelican chorus Plo Fiskin Pluf skin Pelican Jee we think no Birds so Happy As we Plum skin Poshkin Pelican Jill we thought so then and we think so still i was firmly convinced then that whether or not pelicans Sang this pleasant song Flat they ought to. To illustrate somewhat the abiding influence of this Type of poetry filled with such terms As a the jumbles a a Jabberwocky a a a Quan Gle wangle a and a the to Boole that had no toes i will say that Only last year while engaging in a a professor quiz ques Tion and answer contest i defined a a whiff Letreed As a a mystical beast renowned in nonsense rhyme a rather than associating the word with a mule and a plow. A volume of Edward learns a nonsense books was a constant companion of mine during my younger Days. And i suppose that my Delight at the appearance of each new Absurdity in that Book was no More uproarious than that of the children for whom they were originally written. All the photographs of , the originator of the Limerick that Best form of nonsense poetry show that he possessed a Bushy countenance not unlike that of Stonewall Jackson. However to me he looked so much like the a old Man with a beards in his poem that i was sure that a two owls and a Hen four larks and a Wren might have easily built their nests in his Beard. These Brief memories from childhood Are merely to show that i was fortunate in having nonsense verse thrust upon me so to speak at an Early age. Most people become acquainted with it later and some alas a never discover its enchantment. To characterize something As nonsense is for Many people to Rule it out As literature. Perhaps a Little journey in the realm of nonsense will help us to discover that Only the greatly in Earnest can be greatly nonsensical and that it takes uncommon sense to write real nonsense. Edward Lear famous the world Over for his a nonsense books filled with Limericks and nonsensical prose was a landscape artist who at Twenty Publ died his first Book entitled a the family of the sit tac idae a which sounds like nonsense but Means parrots. He was a simple childlike child Loving Man who spent his life in lonely wanderings through foreign lands. In spite of frail health and exhausting work he remained always a old Derry Down Derry who loved to see Young folks generations of Young folks and adults have been made merry by the verses that Lear wrote every evening after dinner for the children who Hung uproariously continued on Page four to speak Here a i a uric hindu Maurice hindus to speak Here soon russian born authority to speak on european affairs stating that faculty members townspeople and students Are a anxiously awaiting the appearance Here on March 1 of Maurice hindus noted author and lecturer prof.
