C. C. Rider
By E. CLARY
Take heart, students. This is the last C. C. Rider until next year.
I’ve been doing a lot of studying for exams lately and I haven’t
had much time for writing columns. For this reason, the column will
be slightly different this time.
You’ve all probably heard some pretty bad jokes during the past
eight months. I know you have if you’ve ever read this column. I’ve
heard so many bad ones that I’m going to print three of the worst.
“What’s so different about that?” you ask. Nothing, except that
I usually print more than three bad jokes in a single article.
Undoubtedly, the worst joke I heard all year had to do with
two lovely girls who were strolling past an insane asylum on a warm
Sunday afternoon. A few of the inmates happened to be out on the
lawn and the girls could see them playing their games through the
fence which surrounded the grounds. Suddenly, a man with an ex
tremely wild countenance cleared the fence with a giant leap and
began chasing the girls.
He was gaining on the terrified cuties when they approached an
intersection. They decided to split up and try to confuse him. The guy
wasn’t as crazy as they thought, however, for he simply stuck to the
trail of the prettier of the two.
This girl, who had become almost exhausted, decided to stop dead
in her tracks and prepare for the worst. As the inmate drew near,
she g^rew tense with fear. What would he do to her ?
Well, he stopped beside her just long enough to tap her on the
shoulder and yell, “Tag! You’re it.” He then ran off in the direction
from whence he had come, crying “Sticks, stacks; no tag backs!”
Do you think that was bad ? Brace yourself.
It seems that a couple of guys became involved in a heated argu
ment in the parking lot of a local drive-in restaurant the other night.
No one was able to cool them down and the two soon squared off for a
At this moment, one of the would be combatants assumed the
pose of a Japanese contortionist and screamed that deadly warning,
“Karate!” At this, the remaining pseudo-gladiator reached into the
trunk of his auto and issued the equally deadly cry of “Tire Tool!”
Two down; one to go.
What would a list of bad jokes be without a cruelty joke? It
would, in all probability, still be a list of bad jokes, but here’s a
cruel one, anyway.
At two o’clock in the morning, a woman was awakened by a
knock on her door. “Who’s there?” she asked. “It’s the Western
Union boy. I have a telegram for you,” was the reply.
“I can’t open the door because I’m in my night gown,” said the
lady. “You’ll have to sing the message to me.”
“I don’t think I ought to sing this on, Ma’am. Maybe you should
read it for yourself.”
“Look,” growled the woman, “I’m not going to open the door at
two a.m. so sing the telegram or scram.”
The boy grumbled, “Okay Lady, You asked for it.” Then he sang,
“Shoe-bop shoe-bop, your son is dead.”
There you have it—the top three bad jokes of the year. As an
extra added attraction. I’m going to throw in a riddle. Who is tall,
dark, and handsome; catches criminals Ike Dr. No and Goldfinger; and
speaks Spanish? Why it’s Jaime Bond, who else?

A CONSTITUTIONAL REVI

with two amendments added by
John Scott (SP). The purpose of
the committee is to review and re

in order that it may meet the
needs of the new three-branch Stu

the present constitution would sure

The committee will be made up
of ten members (two of the legis
