OoHOC^lCifO CHICACO ’ BOXTOH ‘ LOS AN0EI.I8 - SAN FRANCISCO TELEPHONES Have you ever been on first floor during the day or night, trying to get some studying done, with the telephone ringing its head off just around the corner. Really, it’s absurdly disturb ing. The Popularity Misses on the hail are always thinking, “I’ll bet that phone call is for me,” while the Wallflowers, hoping with crossed fingers that it might somehow be a Prince Charming, are immediately thrown into the depths of gloom and dispair. Now it seems to me that the prolonged ringing of the phone merely agitates the feeling of these two types of stu dents. The girls on duty at the desk must be just plain lazy to sit and not move a muscle to answer the phone. A suggestion has been made, to the effect that each stu- den 'be 'brought to feel personally responsible for answering the telephone. Of course, each student should keep in mind that if it is her own best boy friend calling, and if her neighbor beats her to the phone, there might not be a best boy friend anymore, and the neighbor would receive all the candy, flowers and specials. , Still another suggestion, and perhaps more effective, is this one. Merely take out all telephones from the dormitories. All contact with the outside world would be personal. This would entirely eliminate all feelings of any kind that might be provoked by the insistant ringing of the telephone. April Fool WHO-0-0? — NIGHT OWLS Some people have no consideration whatsoever for other people’s rights. Just so they are having a good time is all they are worried about. The particular instant I have in mind is at ten-forty-five every night when the girls in Clewell are com ing in from their dates. Car doors slamming, radios playing, loud talking the noise is obnoxious. Little do they realize that the girls in Senior are trying to go tc sleep. Senior building is so quiet and peaceful at that hour that the least bit of noise can be heard all over the building. What are you in Clewell going to' do to make the life of a Senior more livable? Seniors absolutely need ten hours of restful sleep. The best suggestion would be to extend the time limit for dates until twelve o’clock. Then the Senior girls will be sound asleep by that time and will have had two hours of beauty sleep before the night owls of Clewell ■come in. April Pool COEDUCATIONAL GYII CLASSES One would reasonably think that a school reportedly as modem and broadminded as Salem would be more in touch with, modern ideas of education in respect to physical training.

I refer, of course, to the out moded connection which demands that the Physical Education classes at Salem be confined strictly to girls. (Such a thine is scarcely conceived of in this day of enlightment and higher civilization. It has become almost essential that a college have co-educational gym classes. I quote a certain emminent professor of psychology Dr Phil Ossifer, of Columbia University: “Statistics definitely re veal that it is only in the realm of athletics that a person really reveals his true self. In spite of individual differences, all per sons tend to conform to this statement. In the excitement of the sports and exercise, students drop their pretense, snobbish ness, and indifference, and become natural, friendly, and in terested in each other. It is especially desirable, therefore that boys and girls be thrown together in such a situation; for here alone do they lose their self-consciousness and learn to ad just themselves to each other’s company. If college could only see the necessity of such an idea, the men and women graduated would be much better conditioned. Almoft all cases of malad justment would disappear.” Is it not logical then, that since people are more natural M^hen engaging in athletics that would, be the best opportunity for co-education ? For, after all, what is the aim of everyone in life? Marriage, of course. And how can a happy marriage, free from divorce, be obtained unless each participant knows exactly -vvhat he or she is marrying? And where can people learn to know exactly what the opposite sex is like unless in a co-educational Physical Education class?

Even if I hadn’t seen all this evi dence of Christmas, however, there is one thing that would be a sure sign. That is the fact that Nell Kerns is not only wearing her bed- jacket, nightcap, and bedshoes as well as using her electric heating pad these nights; but she is also don ning her red flannel pajamas with the green holy leaves on them. The true Christmas spirit is among us. The writer of this article wishes to make a correction. She has just been informed that the approaching holiday is Easter and not Christmas. You can find your own evidence and draw your own conclusions. CHAPEL PREVIEW April 4 — J.
