"Oh, y e s indeed, I come from Washington, D. C . " T h e innocent visitor a sumes that t h is is correct ; the boy know that he was never out of Brownville until he entered Colby. We let him have h is say, however, knowing that he w i l l get away with it unless the victim ha been to Wash ington. "Smitty" i a worker in b is line and that seems to be English and History. He ha been expo ed to a l l ·.be i;our es given in those t wo depa rtments. It is now rumored that he is about to become a benedict and support a family by teaching chool. We venture t o say that he will be a succe s in both undertakings.

" Dick" came to us from Map lewood, N . J . , and with him he brought h i mu ·ical fingers which we have so often seen in action. During his stay at Colby, he specialized in tickling the " i vories," but besides being a musician, " D ic k " has also proved to be a p h i lo opher o f parts and a poet a t heart. He believes that sartorial impeccability is the q u intessence of virtue. You can t ickle the " i vories," Dick, but you will never play for George O lsen ; jazz antagonize your keen sensi­ b i lities, although you may not realize i t now. U you had known this at an earlier year, you might have stood with Rachmaninoff. But t h is should not discourage your melancholy so11l. W e wish you the best of luck, "Dick," in whatever field of l i fe you may enter.
