Ripest Job of Civilians




You've heard about dogs holding up football games by running onto the playing field; and of mice causing a lot of trouble by making their appearance in classrooms; but what happened at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota .adds a new story to the books. The time was 6 a. m. one morning, and the place was the coilege house where Marines and Sailors of the Gustavus V-12 Unit were assembled for regular morning muster. Just as one of the chief petty officers was receiving the report of absentees, there was sustained, but obvious laughter among mem' bers of the front ranks. Seeing no just cause for any laughter, the chief asked the trouble. The members of the front rank just pointed, and there. watch-' ing the proceedings with interest from his position on the stage just behind the surprised chief was a contented little skunk. Morning muster was dismissed earlier than usual, and the observer showed appeciation by keeping his trade secrets to himself.— Pvt. Dick Hodgson. USMR «By A. C. P.)

Do You Sneeze, Sniff, Cough? You, Too, Have "Cat Fever" It has to do with skkness and with health ... if you've got the first, we're sorry, if you've got the latter, you'll soon lose it. There's nothing like a cold for the morale and nothing like the epidemic of flu we've had for a good study of mob psychology. Someone sneezes, and off they go! "If I feel any worse tomorrow, I'm going to the Infirmary, if they've got any beds left kl the infirmary". . . "Aw, I'd sooner die in my room than go to that place" . . . "Besides, they have absolutely no more room left at all. If you get sick now, you will hafta die in your room" . . . "Well, if the food is any different down there. I'd be willing to sleep in a flower box" It's pretty bad, really. Of course, we were relieved to read in the Richmond paper that the so-called cat fever" is sadly misnamed, and the pets around here are safe to roam again, but the flu goes on and the Southside's records soar in Kleenex sales. All one has to do is look cross-eyed at another student, and she's sent dashing to Dr Moore Dr. Moore has his hands full as well as the infirmary beds, so he sends her staggering bak to her room to either lie in bed and bemoan her fate, or to sit around in a noisy draft and grow steadily worse. Just what the answer will be. no one dared to guess. The results so far have been everything from missed classes to missing the dance, and the dining hall stays practically deserted. Faces are flushed, eyes blurred, noses red. and minds in a stupor; shelves pile up with pill boxes, cough syr-

up bottles, and even sprays and atomizers. The student teachera hate to go to their classrooms for fear of endangering their pupila, and the girls in Cunningham refuse to run back and forth to the main building for fear of catching a germ on the way. Do you know the symptom*? The Sneeze, the Sniff, the Tickle in the Esophagus, the Cough, the Sore Throat, the Fever, the Fear • ■ ■ ■ The Flu!! And then the Deaperation . . .

Again the balls are brought inside after a season of many outside activities which made up the fall sports program. Looking back we glance over a season made up of eventful activities, each holding its place and marking another highlight in the sports of S. T. C. Hockey ended in all its glor.y at the conclusion of the hard fought class games on the days preceding and on the eventful Color Rush Day. There were four well organized teams, each made up of hard fighting players and cooperation Within the groups. Completing the management of the seasons, we appreciate the work of Ophelia Whittle and can now look forward to next year when we again bring out the hockey balls and sticks. Tennis Courts show dim white lines after the slight rain which removed the well-marked court lines. Players and moving balls and racquets have moved inside after completing a season of tennis which showed the finals of a fall tennis tournament as well as scheduled classes and playing during spare time. Tennis can continue as long as the weather permits. Other tournaments will begin at the end of the winter quar-
