I thumped my gun down several times
In Grant Memorial Hall.
It never once occurred to mn
Twould inculpate them all.
But the Commandant's a Spartan bold
And believes in Spartan discipline.

' For fifteen minutes" for raj' sin.

CRAIO USES THE WRONG WEAPON.
Au open letter to Craig L. Spencer: Dear Craig
I was glad Jo note your reply to my 1 itest in the
lat icKKih of th ""(? in which you gave "A Frat
Man's opinion" over your signature. You are a
stem winder. Criin, but Koine times 3011 slip cogs.
As a rule, tjm Hesperian wants no stronger cor
r b r-iliou of its statements than your 'unhesitating'
denial. So here yu call me a "wilful and malicious
f Unifier" ami I call you brother. You said what ap
peared in my column of Jan. 21 was a "slander"
a'lil you denounced the "implications" against fra
ternities as "fabrications pure and simple." I was
almost beginning to waiver until I heard 3011 say in
th presence of witnesses that there are several fra
ternities in school who are as bad as any "charge"
or "implication" of the Hesperian of Jan. 21. painted
them. You also said that you would not tarnish
your fair name by joining any of, at least, four or
live fraternities here and you named them. Since
you are "fully conversant" with fraternity life here,
lam inclined to believe in your sincerity. Your
article was a strong defense, btit you spoiled the
whole effect by using Sampson's favorite weapon too
freely; that only works with Phillistines. You should
never speak twice before you think. Give love to
all the folks. Bicks.

poet, author of "Ifte 8ilver Craze is Dying OuVanA
other poems, is traveling for his health in the mountain-country
of Pennsylvania and selling a 'great

Jimtnie Searson 3011 are leary
And you make one "tarnal" wearj
With your face.
For you stand and chatter, chatter
Filling with officious clatter
While your history dunces hound 3011
And like hungry fowls surround you
While you spread ,
And you blink and nod and mutter
With such malarious clutter,
On the dead.
Il would make Hoy Sawyer swear,
Or Prof. Franklin tear hi hair
From his crown.
One would hope from such a scrimmage
To see e'en wooden image
