Description

BIOLOGY
Fr. Hauber—Mr. Wagner, can you tell us anything about the spinal
column ?
Dutch—The spinal column is a long wavy line. I sit on one end and
my head sits on the other.
YOU'RE RIGHT, AL
Fitz (cutting hair)-—You sure got a rotten haircut last time, Al.
Rempe—I'll say I did.
Fitz—Who cut it.
Rempe—You did.
A GRAD'S EULOGY
The future collegians will be great, I venture to predict; 'twill make
the author strain his pate, their antics to depict.
The wonders of the present day, will to the dump have fled; the grads
of this year's class will to some pretty one be wed..
There'll be an end to silly Wolf es, and Gerwe's yoddles too; and all our
choirs's vocal strains, worse than the Spanish flu.
We'll hear the new and gifted bunch, raise up their mighty voice;
"We're better singers than you bums, come hear us and rejoice.
"We have with us a baritone, a vocalist of might; a reg'lar human
graphophone, he sure will be a sight.
"Such marvels as we know we are, no walls will e're enfold, and they
will praise us while we're here, not when we're dead and cold."
PEDRO'S TROUBLES
What ees deesa dat I hear?
Me in luuve? 0, don' you fear.
I I am not da muushy guy,
Say, "How sweet! O, yes, O, my!"
Make a fuss about a kiss;
I Chasa after pritty miss.
I no lova any girls,
Shina eyes an' lotsa curls.
I am luuve da fruita stan';
Peanut, apple an' banan',
I And a course da oranga, too.
Look, how juicy. Buy a few.
What! You say, I am a dunce!
Say! I was da strong man once.
Jus' look out for what you say:
You be sorry soma day.
—Erik Kraeg.
PHILOSOPHICAL
I Cone (in the Library)—Have you the Pyrrhonic Hypotyposis of Sex-
tus Empiricus ?
Kinnavey—No, only a cold in my head.
