Ihere are two sides to every (jues- tion. It seems that the Mars Hill public has received only one .side to the question of “bumming.” It i.s certainly not as bad as it is' painted. Of all the reasons for its defense three stand out as the most impres sive. They are: for the fun, for economical pui-poseg, and for acquir ing the art of getting acquainted ea.sily. First, the fun. It is true unadul terated fun for a real red-blooded American boy to take the chance or reaching his destination v>n time.

Not only for these reasons, but for many others, “bumming” is not liarmful. It does not lower the self- re.spect of the boy, but makes hiiv feel more independent. “Bumining” i.s criticised by those who arc not experienced; thev do not know W'here- *■ of- they speak:- As an- experience!] I “bummer,” I feel well (lualified to discuss this .subject, t am .=ure that every one who does- “bum"’ or has ever “bummed” v'ill heartily agree with these statements, but opposi tion from those w’ho do not know i.s eagerly aw'aited.
