We didn't have time to read the blurb but that caption set us thinking. As a matter of ,fact folks do resemble punctuation marks, particularly in the way they dress. Take the guys in this school for ex- aznple. Lots of them are Question Marks. They are the dopes that never know what to wear. Their get-ups are a study in contradictions--a hodge- podge of colors, patterns and styles. When you see a fellow sporting a starched shirt with a pair of jeans-- or sneakers with his Sunday suit--you can check him off as a Question Mark. tap Then there's the Semi-Colon. He's a lazy dub---the "too much trouble'" guy. He's never put together right. You can recognize him by his slouchy ways and droopy, tired clothes. Colon is a cautious gink. He trails along behind, and never accepts a sWle until it is at least a year old. Now, Comma, on the other hand. is the convettlial type--the "follow-the- leader" kind. He's right in the groove when it comes to style---but never goes in for flashy stuff. His are the togs which bring out the "oh's" and "ah's" from the Bobby Sox bunch The only one that can beat him to it is ,Dtash. * He always stops 'era, with the last word in nifty du~ts. We're sorry for Apostrophe. He looks as if he were wearing hand-me- downs, and there always seems to be sorn~ething missing, abont his attire. And Parenthesis. poor jerk. is never sure of himself. He acts as if asham- ed of his appearance and tries to hide. Quotation Mark is a copy cat. He apes the style of some upper classman he considers hot stuff. So we come to Period, Ah, that's a lad to admire. He knows all the answers, and jfist how to put a neat finishing touch to a smartly designed outfit. Now, don't neglect your homework. trying to figure which mark you re- present. Iffowever, in your leisure mo- ments a little self analysis might be profitable. SPORT'N NEWS AND VIEWS By Syl Ryan The Lettermen Society's new mem- bers passed their first stage of be- coming official lettermen last Friday, (to tl~e delight of the at~rletic fund). when they survived the ordeal of the African Dodgers at the Carnival. The lettermen are now making diabolical plans for the last part of the initiation, which is to come. How sad. Ha. Ha! Basketball pracuce continued with the introduction of more plays and further stress on goal defense. The A's and B's began separating more as the two squads concentrated on smoothing out the roug hspots in the -offensive. Good shooting is not the rule as yet, but each day sees a little improvement. The school is anxiously awaiting this year's debut of the blue and gold hoopsters. So far. Coach Walker is leading the experts with a 500% hitting average, but I doubt if he'll last long: Mr. Walker-- U. C. L. A. 20. Oregon State 7. Minn. 13, Purdue 5. Notre Dame 20, At~rty 7.
