Every summer some students
are lucky enough to make that ever-
exciting trip abroad. There are
several such students here at our
own University. We were inter
ested in their comments con
cerning the sights and sounds of
countries, foreign to the United
As the person assigned the task
of interviewing these students, I
was faced with the problem of not
knowing exactly what questions to
ask. My problem was solved to a
great extent when I discovered that
cne of the students had kept a day-
by - day account of her trip.
The following are some refresh
ing, new slants of a tourists view
of Europe, from the memoirs of
Phyllis Henline, who spent ten

Lincoln Had Beard Before
Newman's Mother Had Blades
By Corny Stilwell
Yesterday I saw an advertisement in a newspaper that introduced
the latest in men’s toiletry. The new “bare look” for men in fashion.
What exactly is the “bare look”? As far as I could determine,
it’s the new colorless lipstick for men. Now, there is a chapstick
which looks like a tube of lipstick but this isn’t a new chapstick!
It’s odorless, smear-proof and water repellent!’ What’s more it’s for
men. And it’s designed to give your smackers a lean and hungry look.,
boy, you’d be lean and hungiy for a long time around me.
The first time I caught some fellow sneaking in his pocket and pulling
out a tube of lipstick to smear on his kisser....well, that would be
enough for me.
Righ next to this “bare look” advertisement was a Want Ad column
and immediately my eyes caught the ad which read, “MAN WANTED!
Must produce Credentials.” How ironic that the editor should place
this ad next to the “bare look ” advertisement. The older I get,
the harder it is for me to remember when almost everyone had the
clean-shaven, tailored-shirt look.
Everyone has that “pinched” look (males). They impress me as
acting as though they’d just eaten a lemon. The reason for their ex
pression comes from the fact that they have on such tight pants that
their blood circulation in their legs has been severed. Years ago you
would have blamed that “pmcned” look on tight shoes times do
As for the clean-shaven look, five years ago only beatniks had
beards, now everyone who swings (from trees) is growing one. It
men were intended to have beards, why would Paul Newman’s mother
have invented the razor-blade?
At least Paul’s mother was able to convince him that he looked
better with hair on the top of his head instead of all the way around it.
Of course, some young men insist upon arguing that all the great men
in our history had beards. That may be true, but no one’s written a
book on why they had them.
Abraham Lincoln, one of our greatest statesmen is pictured with
a beautiful black beard. But the way that I look at it, if you’re nearly
7 feet tall, who’s going to be able to see whether you’ve must shaved
or not. It’s not those 7 feet tall men who bug you, it’s those 5’9”
with the beard they can wrap around their pinkies who’ll bother you.
It nearly drives me crazy to sit behind one of these guys in class and
have to watch them >vind their breads around their pinkie and then wind
it again and unwind it and wind it again When the bell finally rings
for the next class, I’m so glad to be away from the fellow that I fairly
run to class and who do I find sitting in front of me? Curly Beard him
self. (He’s wound and unwound his beard so many times that he’s put
a natural kink in it).
Beards seem to be present on guys with the short hair. I’d rather
see that than the guys with the smooth face and the hair down their
shirts and even their eyes.
They have curlers and clips for setting their mops. Then they’ve
designed a speciaUy made teasing comb for styling. After styling,
there is the special hair spray.
To me, there is nothing more displeasing than to see a girl with a
bouffant hairdo and be able to see the teasing which hasn’t been combed
over. But to see a boy with a “hairdo” which probably wouldn’t fit
under a bushel basket is overwhelming.
Clothes, too, are picking the boys from the men. (But they are more
than that, they’re making it possible to distinguish the men from the
women.) The men are the ones who wear the long pants. The women
wear the short skirts.
As I said, the older I get, the harder it is to accept the new fads.
Hope that skirts don’t get too much shorter.....at least, if they do,
I hope that my legs get a little longer.
