A few random, wandering
thoughts written as they occur. . ,
I finally remembered who E. B.
Ellison, Jr. is. I knew the name
sounded familiar when I read his
nasty epistle, and I have placed
it. E. B. was my roommate last
semester. The reason I didn't re
call him at first was that what
with his roistering I seldom saw
him while we were living together.
He slept during the day, I con
servative that I am slept at
night, and thus he is chiefly re
membered as a shape in the upper
bunk. Come to think of it, I did
meet him once; he was coming in
as I was getting up. We talked
about the cowboy movie, my ar
gument being that the horse opera
in the style of Gene Autry and
Roy Rogers is a distinct, albeit
imperfect art form and entitled to
respect as such; Ed -wrong-thinker
that he is disagreed. Never
theless, that was a pretty intel
lectual conversation for seven
My contention remains the
same: the cowboy movie is a mod
ern morality play worthy of all
the effort Hollywood can exert to
help it live up to its promise.
Consider the formalism of the
"oater," a formalism as rigid as
that of a Greek play. We are
shown a spotless hero, a spotless
heroine, and a villain who is noth
ing but one continuous spot. They
move within a plot which is a mar
vel of simplicity, without subtle
nuances or sophisticated brick
brack. The action is forthright to
the point of being stunning; I shall
never forget the spectacle of a vil
lainous henchman falling at least
two stories off a balcony and land
ing on a pool table which prompt
ly collapsed, I shall never forget
it though I was only four years
old when I saw the movie in which
it occured.
In the world of confused rela
tivism which I have so often be
rated, a view of the Old West,
where men (were) men and
morality (was) morality, refreshes
me. You may call me an escapist
if you wish (and E. B. Ellison,
Jr. probably will), but I am en

know that right will win. The world

what is right, sometimes repulses
A columnist who appeared in
this space last year was pictured
every week smoking a pipe. Un
happily neither his verbiage nor
his briar is in evidence any more.
Instead we are confronted every
week by Max Shulman's sneaky
essays on cigarettes. Shulman, you
know, is the fellow who bandies
jests about for two or three para
graphs to get us into a good mood,
then suddenly subverts our minds
with commercials for nicotine
In the face of the syndicated
pitchman and his many admirers
I shall proceed to enumerate the
virtues of a pipe, which are two.
The first was best expressed by
my thirteen year old brother when
he said, "A writer should smoke
a pipe because he should look dis
tinguished and any slob can smoke

cigarettes." Of course, his philos
ophy is not accurate; you cannot
judge a book by its cover or a
man by his Kaywoodie. But the
right pipe carries connotations:
the onlooker associates it with
English lords, vibrant collegiate
virility, and his old grandfather
who burned a lot of Prince Albert
and matches while playing check
ers. The second advantage of a pipe
is the tradition which can be at
tached to it. He would be a very
unimaginative briar-chugger in
deed who could not look at the
bowl of his pipe and sign, "These
nicks are from the ashtray at . . ."
or "It got this scratch the night. ."
or "I charred it lighting it with
the cigarette lighter my pinmate
gave me for Christmas."
This tradition is not to be scorned
in any personal article. I bought
leather suitcases because the sales
man in the store said I would be

enough, now every time I pack
my clothes, I look at the suitcase
and remember how it was scuffed
during an unfortunate but, in re
trospect, hilarious bus trip to
But I was talking of the memor
ies which hallow pipes. I'll close
the discussion with a comparison.
Think of the incidents a well-used
pipe can recall from the subcon
scious. Then contemplate the death
of cigarettes millions of expend
able rolls of tobacco lying in thou
sands of forgotten ashtrays. The
thought is melancholy, but cigar
ettes do not accumulate memor
ies. The most they can hope to
gather is lipstick.

Nobody Gave A Hoot For J. Paul Sheedy Till
Wildroot Cream-Oil Gave Him Confidence
"Wlta vary! y avoid mi o?" h-owled J. PauL "Because you're such a
ruffled old bird", replied hit best buddy. Well that really opened Sheedy's
tyei. He took s taxi-dermist down to the store and pecked up a bottle
of Wildtoot Cream-Oil. Now he's the picture of
confidence because he knows his hair always looks its
best from morning till night. So if people have been
hooting at yeut messy hair, screech for a bottle or
tube of Wildroot Cream -Oil. It's guaranteed to keep
your hair neat but not greasy. And all the gals will go
out of their way to beak to you.

Let us assume the tuition at the
U. of N. were nearly doubled.
What would happen to my friend
Yogurt Z. Kritch and many other
men and women at this Univer
sity? Since his fathers business hasn't
been especially prosperous the
past few years, Yogurt is working
part time to pay his way through
school. He has just barely been
able to get enough money to pay
all of his necessary expenses like
room and board, books, and TUI
TION. Then, if he has any money
Dwaine Rogge
left, he buys some new clothes to
give him that Joe College look.
If tuition were doubled, Yogurt
would have to find $180 more dol
lars. That is very near to being
an entire month's salary. But al
ready Yogurt is spending aoout all
he and his parents can allocate
for his education. His brothers and
sisters need money, too.
Mr. Kritch is intelligent, but
since he had to work part time
he could not keep a 6.5 average
to get his Regents scholarship
back. Some student loans are
available; however, there is not
enough money here for everyone
who needs it.
So with no way to get money
to pay the extra tuition, Yogurt
would probably have to drop out
of Engineering College.
The real tragedy, I fear, is that
many University students would
find themselves in the same per
plexing situation as Yogurt. Here
on this campus there are many
students whose parents are very
wealthy. These people would not
be hurt much by an increase in
tuition. However, there are also
financially successful. Here are
the students who would be treated!
Many of these students are in
telligent enough to make very good
use of a college education. They
might make good businessmen,
doctors, or engineers, but for lack
of money they may go out to b
relatively less productive and use
ful members of our society. This
should not happen.
Some Institution of higher learn
ing should be within financial
reach of almost all fairly intelli
gent citizens. The Universit" should
be that place.

First Little Story
Once upon a time there was an Indian brave named
Running Bear who had a squaw named Giggling Water.
Giggling Water was sort of a mess, but she sure couldH
make beaded moccasins. Every day she whipped up a
brand-new pair of beaded moccasins for Running Bear
which were so gorgeous that all the Indian maids on tha
reservation grew giddy with admiration.
Well sir, Giggling Water got livid about all the girls
making goo-goo eyes at Running Bear, and one night sh
told him so. Then he got livid too, and they had a terrible
rumble, and he slapped her on the wrist, and she started
crying like crazy and moved out of the wigwam and
went home to her mother and never came back.
"Good riddance!" said Running Bear, but he soon
found out how wrong he was, for the Indian maids were
not really interested in him, only in his moccasins, and
when he stopped showing up with a new pair every day,
they quickly gave him the yo-heave-ho, and today he is
a broken man, sitting all alone in his tepee and muttering
ancient Ute curses.

Second Little Story
Once upon a time there was a sweet old gentleman
named Nathan who ran a tobacco counter at a large
American university. All of the students loved him
dearly, and they us&d to come over whenever they could
to buy Philip Morris Cigarettes and chat with Nathan,
both of which were highly satisfactory pursuits. The
Philip Morrises were highly satisfactory because they
are full of natural goodness that is friendly and humane
and soothing and no small consolation in this strife
ridden world of ours. Nathan, like Philip Morris, was
also full of natural goodness that was friendly and
humane and all like that.
Well sir, the students smoked Philip Morris and
yocked with Nathan, and everything was lovely. Then
one day the university decided to fire Nathan and put
in a cigarette vending machine instead.
Well sir, the students did not take that lying down,
you may be Bure ! They organized a monster rally and
went over to prexy's house and made fiery speeches about
good old Nathan and how they loved him.
Well sir, prexy was no fool, and when he saw how
heartbroken the students would be if Nathan went, he
decided that the wisest course was to keep Nathan and
cancel the cigarette vending machine. This he did, and
they all lived happily ever after.
MORAL: Better Nate than lever.
