me find a man or get a job but don't

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.

erMen make me sick. One guy refused
to go out with me to our formal because

anyone turning down a Kuhi AHi Thrash

what does he do but take to the crib

the cat-and-mouse attitude be

students if the latter private

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
expect you to get your dates
in at early closing hours and
the rules that no men are al
lowed in the sorority bouses
after 1 a m. any morning.
