The IN A CROVE OF STATELY OAK TREES By Foo Vaeth This writer is going to be laughed off the campus after this one. But how can any edi tor expect a decent column in this cold weather? My wit is chilled, my hands frozen, and my toes are slightly nippy. Nippy? That is a rather mild word for the famous bliz zards that plowed through the grove recently. What a way to start off the year. What a way to start off the semes ter! Another week of vaca tion. Actually, there is no thing like waking up those cold January mornings, put ting on five to ten layers of clothing, and sliding over to Ragland only to find your teacher can’t make it through the snow. Next step: slide back to your room, take off that layered clothing, climb CONGRATULATIONS GIRLS! The Columbia Scholastic Press Association awarded a second place certificate to The Belles staff.

I must apologize to those who were immobilized with me. Any sane psychologist would immediately commit ^Foo Vaeth if he or she were to see my snowbound behavior. To be cold is miserable. To be cold and wet is even worse. Who can walk around when your feet have the opportu nity to slide right from under you? Everyone laughs when I walk as though my next step may be my last. They would probably laugh harder if 1 fell on my face, and that is a risk I would rather not take. Many people have ideas about what they could do with twelve million dollars. This city spends it on clean ing up the mess. What will I do without my grapefruits in the summer — let alone oranges to make a frosty screwdriver? Actually, this weather can make me happy. As long as your basic, dedicated teacher stays home. I’ll be happy. Really happy. My fa vorite aspect of the snow and ice is that special thrill I get when I can hear my car wheels spinning on a sheet of ice, slush, snow or other forms of nippy precipitation. Just knowing that I am abso lutely stuck with nowhere to go is enough to turn me into a walking snowwoman. Yes, snow is pretty, snow is fun, but I’d rather be sweating in the sun.
