Cause: Boring Class
Staff Writer
The favorite pastime of the col-
liege students seems to be that of
"doodling" on desks. It's amazing
how these etchings can be de
veloped from a small mark to
practically a ditch.
To begin with, there is the stu
one often can spy the faint out
line of crib notes (for shame).
Wise up cribbers, notes are ter
ribly difficult to read on marked
up desks, unless you' have an
unusually good set of peekers.
