the words morale and mate are
synonomous. Steve has dated
Nancy Steve had double dated
with Mylene Steve had a friend
in Betty. The attack begins. The
plot is laid.
On Nov. 3, a memorable day,
Steve comes to this village, he
and his intentions loaded into a
new blue convertible. He makes

Mylene, the babe he had never
dated before. With swiftness as
the heart of his offense, he pops
the question. Punched oft' her pins
by the proposal from a lad she
has never dated Mylene says "No

Freud. Stealthy Steve is not de

Then came the gloomy morn when
Nancy heard that Mylene was get

Letter number one to Nancy on
the 13th of December contained,
"Of course I want to get engaged
and plan on getting married as
soon as you are through with
school in June." Letter number
two to Mylene arrived on the 15th
and we quote, "But I want very
definently to get married, not in
the near futine, not next fall, but
the day after your graduation in
June." The plot thickens.
We have not the time or space
to quote passages ftom the forty

for the technique: "As I look into
the future what can I see through
the mist, the smoke, the fire. You
and I together your head lying
in Steve's lap, his hand caress

his ears, K Stacy!" He whipped

Cathedral Choir Supplements
Improved Music of Symphony
BY DIETER DOBER.
Monday night's concert at Irving
Junior High School found the Lin
coln Symphony orchestra aug
mented by the appearance of Lin
coln's own Cathedral choir. A ca
pacity audience applauded rather
spontaneously the vocal numbers
presented with the orchestra and
an a copella work which John Ros
boro conducted himself. The
"Spinning Song" from Wagner's
"B'lying Dutchman" and the "Cho
rale, Prize Song and Finale" from
the "Meislersinger'' by the same
composer proved to be quite a
musical attempt, this in particular
as individual solo parts were sung
by whole sections of the choir.
Nevertheless chorus and orchestra
combined well to bring out the
main essence of Wagner's message
to a very satisfactory degree. In
Christiansen's "The Spires" the
Cathedral Singers were obviously

Preston Hayes both think that the

a good idea.
Nancy Haycock, chairman of
the national defense committee,
embodied the virtually unanimous
opinion of both men and women
students in her statement "spring
hour dances can be well done
away with for this next semester."
"Freshmen are sufficiently ac
quainted by now," says Ruth
Denny, but both Lois Scofield and
Harold Hopkins vote "no" on the
discontinuance of hour dances.
The major point, however, seems
to be that the elimination of
spring hour dances merely agrees
with most student's opinions rather
than firing them with enthusiasm
