QUESTIONS WHICH PERPLEX US.
Why tho fellow who never llnds
time to study aluavs maintains that
the piofs "have it in tor him?"
Why it iB consideied less of an
offense to "cut" an afternoon class
than a moining one
Why we spend our time planning
trips for the summer which we have
no intention of taking
Why the fellow who oidlnarily iB
not hampered by the rules of polite
ne.ss insists upon vour entering the
pay as vou enter car ahead of him
Whv the letters homo always end
with, "I must stop and study my
lesson for tomorrow "
