Last fall, when Darrell Dapper
came down to school from straw
berry Corners, he had his mind
made up that he was going to be
a self-made man.
In fact, all through his first
semester, he lived in the illusion
that he was very different from
everyone else. When it rained,
he was the only one who got his
feet wet or so he thought. Con
sequently, he was the only per
son who caught cold.
Darrell always had the feeling
that instructors picked pn him.
Nobody else seemed to get the
treatment We got, and he resented
Then too, it seemed to Darrell
that he was the only person who
ever had troubles with his study
ing. 'Why Do I Get Picked On?'
"Why is it that I always have
to get picked on?" he sometimes
asked himself. "Why don't tne
instructors ask any of the other
students in my classes to answer
questions? They always have
their lessons. They iiever seem
to have troubles like I do."
And, so it went all through
the first semester of Darrell's
college life. He was living in the
sad illusion tnat everyone else
was getting along fine that no
body had any worries. They all
flocked upon him like flies.
Darrell continued to live in his
illusion, wade in his sorrow and
swat the flies. Before he knew it,
people were talking about final
exams and registering for the
next semester. Darrell didn't
know whether he wanted to go
on to school or not. At the same
time, he was so scared about his
finals that he didn't know which
way to turn.

University students will present
a second performance of an ex
erpt from T. S. Eliot's "The Cock
tail Party" Tuesday at 8 p.m. in
Room 205, Temple.
The first presentation of the
play was made Monday night.
Under the direction of Richard
Garretson, the play stars Marjorie
Miller, Wesley Jensby, Cyra Ren
wick and Dick Miller.
Eliot, a Nobel prize winning
poet, has written the drama about
a man's need for a goal toward
which he can travel.
The excerpt being presented is
concerned with the central scene
of the play, which illustrates
Eliot's thesis of salvation.
Celia, 'Sophisticated Woman'
The play is about Celia Copple
stone, a young and sophisticated
woman who suddenly finds that
the world has become a delusion
to her and she no longer believes
in her own reality.
With the guidance of a psychia
trist, Celia brings her problem in
to the open. She admits having a
vision which she longs to follow.
The psychiatrist helps her to
choose the way of preparation for
her life, and she leaves to join a

said, "Everyone makes a choice at
one tme or another and then must
take the consequences."

thought, he won't have lost any

than he had intended them to.
Nevertheless, he decided that,
despite his poor grades, he would
try to study hard and see if he
could raise them a little with his

been hoping all along for a 9.999.

"What, will I tell my mother?"
he thought desperately. "She will
be very disappointed in me."

out of the building. Sulkily, he
started for the bus stop.

Expression Shows Same
Darrell looked at the expres

somewhat the same thing he had
felt inside of himself all week.
"What's the trouble?" he asked
"Oh, nothing much," the
stranger replied; "Just a little

Darrell asked eagerly.

thought I had worries!" he mut

"What did you say?"
"Never mind," said Darrell,
tossing it off. "Come on. Let's go
someplace for a coke. Maybe we
can think up a good story to tell

The two boys turned in the di
