It’s Not Too Late To Get A Date
Keep watching for it.
By Norris and Carl
Students, beware! A Valuable part of our social heritage has nearly slipped from our grasp. The ancient art of pitching woo has degenerated into a helter-skelter chaos of random mating.
Just look at the evidence. Our college average of engagements for this year is way below the ten-year average of one per week.
Men. where is your initiative? Girls, where are your diamonds? Jewelers, where are your profits?
Men. the Queen’s Banquet is coming up next Friday, and it, is time for you to get on the ball and get a date. However, some of you may not know how to go about this.
Therefore, to remedy this situation. we present a new scientific approach known as the Harms and Harris Handy Helpful Heterosexual . (We
couldn't think of a good word that started with an “H", fill one in yourself.)
To follow this scientific method it is necessary to have command of all the pertinent facts. Collect data on the names, size, shape, age. residence, shape, and phone number of all girls who belong to the McPherson College Family.
The list of names and residences can be obtained from the Student Directory printed by the registrar's office. A phone book and tape measure are needed to obtain the other information.
This list must immediately be
Lois Fager and Mrs. Lois Hayes were among a group of people working in the church one afternoon last week.
Presently the telephone rang and a voice asked for Lois. Lois Fager answered the phone and the conversation ran somewhat like this:
Guy Hayes: Hello, darling. I won’t be home for supper.
Lois Fager: You must have the wrong Lois. I ain’t nobodys darling.

Many students come to school without adequate study habits. Although Macollege offers an orientation course to freshmen, we feel that this does not fully cover the field, so here are a few bits of advice submitted for your help.
The student will need some aid to study. We strongly reccmmend books for this purpose. Buy all the books you can lay hands on. Even if you never use them for study, you can burn them in the winter for heat. Then. too. you can throw them at proctors, or barricade your door with them when you have food in your room.
Another invaluable study habit is that of studying in advance. We heartily recommend studying ahead — blonde, brunette, or redhead.
Memory association is another great help to study. For instance, suppose you’re trying to remember in history that women’s suffrage was achieved in 1920. Next to you in class sits a woman of 19 or 20 years of age. As f o r the suffrage part — well, we’ll leave that to you.
Hurried cramming should be avoided in test preparation. Instead. the student should try to sleep on the material studied. This may have uncomfortable results. but if you're used to sleeping on a dorm bed. it probably makes no difference.
Finally, use your time to your best advantage. In a recent poll taken on Macampus. 50 per cent of the students interviewed wasted too much time at Dotzour, spending much of the precious time accomplishing nothing. As for Foley, he knits in the evening. F & . . . . f
