Who Pays? . . .
Should a criminology course be required for
the University curriculum? Or perhaps a semi
nar in general appreciation. Many students, ex
perienced in the art of petty thievery, would
undoubtedly get a nine out of the former.
The point is: an intolerable situation has de
veloped at the Union. Juke boxes have been put
out of commission by "cribbers" who don't like
the "tone." Lives are being jeopardized by the
theft of fire axes.
Duane Lake, Union director, calls this situa
tion a "recent trend." Furniture, including dainty
sand urns which certainly add beauty to any
house on campus, have disappeared. Let's hope
that any new additions will not ruin the balance
crsated by interior decorators!
The radio, a very complicated device for fee

College Drinking Is Problem
For Education, Not Legislation
In spite of the obvious importance that my
colleague, Beth Randall attaches to undergrad
uate drinking, I refuse to apologize for the omis
sions that she points out.
The matter on undergraduate drinking, while
a problem, is not a matter for
legislation. No, it's more a
matter for education.
Ever hear the story about the
little girl who was asking her
father about the liquor laws?
"How old does a person have
to be to drink?" she asked.
"Twenty-one," replied her
"Then how old do they have
to be not to drink?" she asked.
People do not seem to realize that when a per
son under 21 takes a drink, they are breaking
the law. Right or wrong, the law is there. And
there is a reason for the law. If the legislators
thought that people under 21

No matter what kind of law there is, some one
Is bound to break it. Does that mean that the
law is "wrong?

freshmen do it, the high schoolers want to. No

Student Finds Going to Bed
Not as Easy as It Sounds
By Miyllis Long
At 12 midnight when your brain
is fatigued, your eyes are crossed
from following a printed line in a
textbook and your hand is
cramped into a hand-shakinc to-
sition it is time to go to bed.
Take a look in the mirror and see
the shining example of a harried
college student. Hair rumpled to
resemble a dry mop, sagging
cheeks, and orbs Tesembling two
burning holes ra a blanket.
"I'm going straight to bed" said
the brave student. "Where are my
p.j.'s? They were here last night.
There they are under the chair
how did they get there?" After
getting ready for bed you start
down the hall to brush your
tooth and wash your toe.
Fourth For Bridge
Hark the shuffle of cards is
heard and a beckoning voice
yells "fourth for bridge." Class
time is going to come terribly
early in the morning, but just a
--"pj oi nanas snouian i tajce too
much time. Besides you can catch
UP on yur sleeP in history class
in the morning. "Deal 'em out
kids, be there in a minute."
Two long hands later, 12 m. al
ready, and you still have your
cards in front of you. "Gee, I'm
not even tired anymore." A few
more night cwls shuffle into the
room and bridge is forgotten. Hide
the food and cigarettes there's a
hungry look in their eyes.
Someone starts the conversation
off with "Did you see Suzy
mooning over that man in An
drews hall this morning?" A half
hour later all mutual "friends"
had been run thru the ringer and
rinsed twice. Again the effort to
go to bed is made. Back to the
cubby hole with you.
You still aren't sleepy maybe
a magazine would be relaxing.
You thumb through the pages
looking for something interesting.
Speaking of relaxing someone
who has an eye for the almighty
dollar has designed a pair of
lounging pajamas for TV fans.
They have bloomer legs which
are tight at the bottom, no sleeves
and a scooped out neck, all just
right for an ungraceful position.
How To Stay Slim
What's this an article on how
