Pre-Christmas Partying Ruins
Health of Former Introvert
By Ann Gllligan
"Party, party" is being sung
from the law college to the TKE
house during these last few days
Everyone is planing on a fall
two weeks of fun after approxi
mately 13 weeks, 78 days and
1872 hours of school.
Take Sycamore Sycatash, our
man of the hour. Poor Syc has
musty books, in his moldy little
now, surrounded by ancient,
musty books, in his moldy litle
hole over in Law college. How
ever, during Thanksgiving vaca
tion he did come out once to get
a much needed haircut.
But the other day, Sycamore
became terribly disturbed. It
seems a fellow student left a late
issue of the Rag lying near Syc's
musty place of residence, and
Syc picked it up only to see
"Party Edition" sprawled across
the front page.
: "There must be something to
this university life I hadn't
figured on" he decided. "I'll have
to try it out."
Brushed Away Dust
wondered at the cross-eyed, bald
headed replica of Andy Gump,
Syc partied with the rest of the
Syc even went clear out to Ag,
on his one-wheeled bicycle, to
attend the Ag Union party. Al
though he fainted several times
during the strenunous square
dancing, he enjoyed himself im
mensley. He helped Santa at the faculty
children's party in the Union. He
even managed to attend several
Christmas caroling parties, where
he was greatly appreciated for
his high, monotone voice.
After ten days of partying,
Sycamore was a complete physi
cal and nervous wreck. Besides
daytime parties, he attended
every evening party he could
shove his way in to. This, and
a few cups of coffee, gave an
advantage over his fellow law
students, for he could now stay
up until 6 a.m. doing his studies.
This story has an unhappy
ending for poor Sycamore seemed
to go mad during the last few
days of vacation. He hiccupped
all the time and did cartwheels
to all his clases.
He went completely " party
crazy." Two hours before his
train was to leave for Lower Slo
bovia, his home, he decided he
simply had to go to another
party. Since' he could find no
more parties to satisfy his desire,
he staggered back to his moldy
little hole in law college and
passed out. From nervous ex
haustion. The janitor stumbled
over him the next day and sent
him to the hospital, where his
last breath was uttered to the
faint refrains of Party, party."
Will other follow the footsteps
of poor Sycamore Sycatash? Will
you be all "partied-out" by vaca
tion time. Take our advice
don't kill yourself before vaca
tion, live a little after vacation
