The student gazed at his Eng

"Will I ever learn," he thought.
"Perhaps 1 should go to Bongo
Bongo where they don't use cor

The student hated Miss Lilac
Sycamore, his freshman English
teacher passionately. She was
always correcting him when he
used "ain't" or "1 set down" or
"I am rising my hand."
The student found himself bad

One day, the student read in
his Daily Nebraskan that the
Union was going to hold a Val

friend thought it was pronounced
"rez-end-voos." He wondered

give up. Determination was his
middle name, do or die was
his motto. & e vowed that he
would writt something that
