^was The Night Before...
by Fay Stickney
T’was the night before Christmas, when all through the dorm
Not a student was cramming, in any way or form.
We all should be tucked in our snug little beds
And dream of Saint Nick in our pin-curled heads.
But some chattering and yelling were heard by the frosh.
And racing and romping were sported by the sophs.
The proctors with whips did at last quiet our screams
And we settled down to plot our vacation schemes.
Mor# than rapid than rapids blonde Joan did recite
All the names from a list, she clung to so tight.
There’s Jim, and there’s Tim, and there’s Slim, and there’s Don.
There’s Bob, and there’s Bob, and a snob who’s called John.
Her roommate called Lizzie has thoughts but for Eog
As she slammed shut her., suitcase, which was all hedge podge.
Then there’s Dolly, whose plans with her Chapel Hill man
Have caused quite a commotion with the rest of her clan.
The dieting gals sigh an ^^oh” and an ah
As the tape measure proves that they’re thin as a bar.
Black-haired Julia has thoughts for some Citadel stuff.
Since her bank book is empty, she’ll sign it on the cuff.
And we laugh when we see Jean and also lithe Beth
Dance out a boogie; it seems a sure death.
But they must learn the latest in the clicking of feet
So at home at the dances they’ll be termed as "reet”.
As we bound all to bed in the wee of the night
And pray for the hour of tomorrow’s flight,
We think, soon we’ll be home to ma’s cookies and cakes.
Soon we’ll be home to our family and dates.
As Saint Nick once did say, as he drove out of sight,
“Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!”

Christinas Gifts are
But then a small Christmas spirit,
cold and wandering around, found
Polderol, and lighted on her shoul
She took the snow out of the of
fice. The Cliristmas spirit smiled.
Folderol put the leg back on the
dog. The little spirit snuggled up
to Folderol’s ear. She stopped
grinding her teeth.
Yes, life really was good and so
thinking, Tried and True loped over
to the Christmas party in Snapping
dorm. When she entered, three
eager beavers were sniffing and feel
ing presents under the tree, a mangy
last year’s number with nine strands
of itinsil hanging from the well
Folderol smiled happily, for to
night she would get a gift from
someone when presents were ex
“Hey, In there, let’s dispense
with all this dillyin ’ ’ around. Let’s
open the presents now.”

Four figures .jumped from the
mantel, crawled quickly among the
presents and snarled angrily at the

fore Folderol could say “Geewhiz-
wn” the casualties mounted up into
two figures—The militia called in,
order was restored, and when the
last gift was exchanged, Folderol
took her light bulb and went hap
pily to bed while visions of snow
balls, Santa Claus, seniors, old lad

Prove for yourself what throat specialists
reported when 30-day smoking test revealed
NO THROAT IRRITATION
due to smoking CAMELS!
According to a Nationwide survey:
MORE DOCTORS SMOKE CAMELS THAR ANY OTHER CIGARETTE
'AKE YOUR OWN 30-DAY CAMEL MILDNESS TEST.
Smoke Camels, and only Camels, for 30 days. Prove for
yourself just how mild Camels are!
Hundreds of men and women, from coast to coast, recently
made a similar test. They smoked an average of one to two
packs of Camels a day for 30 days. Their throats were exam
ined by noted throat specialists. After a total of 2470 examina
tions-these throat specialists reported not one single case
of throat irritation due to smoking Camels!
But prove it yourself... in your "T-Zone.” Let YOUR,
OWN TASTE tell you about the rich, full flavor of Camel’s
choice tobaccos. Let YOUR OWN THROAT give the good
news of Camel’s cool, cool mildness.
Tty Camels and test them as you smoke them. If, at any time, you are
not convinced that Camels are the mildest cigarette you ever smol^
return the package with the unused Camels and we will refund its full
purchase price, plus postage. (Signed) R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Com
