Nancy Fancy, junior Po Boota Pho
Well, kid, if you don't stop asking me
if I just came to college to get a man
I'll knock hell out of you. Me, I came
to college to get culture. That's spelled
Jaci Macter, sophomore Koona Koona
Goner No, I don't like school but I
don't like work either. My parents told
me find a man or get a job but don't
stay around the house drinking their
beer and smoking their cigarettes. Well,
I read somewhere that college men get
paid more dough later on so here I am.
I want to give my kids all I didn't have.
Maybe not quite all though.
Jerri Merrie, senior Dundy Gundy
What's it to you? If I thought it were
ycur business I'd tell you. I don't tell
guys my trade secrets for nothing. If
you're really Interested in knowing what
I came to college for you can take me
out to dinner, take me to your formal,
take me to a cocktail party, take me to
a movie, take me to the follies. Get the
drift? I don't dj anything for nothing.
Grubba Tubba, freshman Alfa Phalfa
You better believe I'm learning. Those
stories about flowers are nuts!
Mertie Misery, sophomore Alii Omph
Pah I'nr here because men are here,
and they're not only here but they are
here 3 to 1. Do you hear me 3 to 1? Back
in high school I sat home and played
Cinderalla but no prince ever called on
me with a glass slipper, so all I ever
did was knit and wash dishes. But here,
oh you kid, here even I am a belle of
the ball. Last week I got to turn down
15 dates. Do you hear me 15 dates?
That means I'm a queen. Do you under
stand? Me a queen, a queen, a queen!
I'm a queen I tell you. I'm a queen!
Ellie Preslie, senior Kuba Alii Thrash
erMen make me sick. One guy refused
to go out with me to our formal because
he had another date that night. Imagine
anyone turning down a Kubi Alii Thrash
er. And then another guy asked me out
for a coffee date and I said okay. Then
what does he do but take to the crib
for coffee. To the crib. And me a Kuba
Alii Thrasher. Can you really imagine
that? Men really do make me sick. Ex
cuse me. I gotta run. I'm already a
couple of hours late for my date. He's
probably still waiting out in the rain.
They can't come in the Kuba Alii Trash
er house when its raining. Get the rug
muddy you know.
Taffie Haffie, sophomore Soggy Doggy
Toggy Sure I came here to get mar
ried. What else? Do you think I'm dif
ferent or something?
Caril Congo, junior Doggy Doggy Dog
gyI've found out there's a lot more to
life than book learning.
Yes, men, these are the types of creat
ures who presently inhabit this fair
campus. These are the monsters who
go about disguised as Greek goddesses
wearing bermuda shorts and X covered
We must assert ourselves as the su

before us this year has been
the question of codifying the

I have always been against
that particular item presented
before the council by Mr.

codification in a private in
stitution, much less in a pub
lic one, don't you know.
Besides, it would destroy
the cat-and-mouse attitude be
tween the authorities and the
students if the latter private
interest group really knew
what was expected of them.
That's obvious enough to me

There is such a thing as
the administration getting too
dictatorial. I think it has
reached that point here at NU.
The thing that gripes me so
damn much is the way they

the rules that no men are al

after 1 a.m. any morning.

FBI investigators inspect still
As yet there Is no statemeat from fca
University administration on the discov
ery of a still in the ruins of Ellen Smith
Hall. Chancellor Clifford Hardlout would
say only, "School will not be dismissed
tomorrow." He denied that those wert
hiccups which our reported heard in
the background. Everyone else connect
ed with the University was reported in
disposed. Meanwhile rumors were floating
around campus. (Reports that the ad
ministration was floating around cam
pus proved false.) Delta Tau Delta presi
dent Tom Nevski called in to say that
the Delt bell was confiscated in a re
cent raid; he wondered whether it could
have been melted down and if so would
brass tubing make a good coil. Reports
that the still was connected to the Uni
versity heating system sent instructors
scurrying to radiators but proved ground
less. Meanwhile we are waiting breathlessly
for the scoop on this scandalous develop
ment. Come on, gang, spill the beans.
You know how badly we need a good
cruoade to go on.
