How to Handle Women
A mean woman is one of the mean
est creatures that walk on the face of
this earth. On the other hand a good
woman can be one of the sweetest
and handiest things ever created when
they choose to be or when they have
the right kind of boss.
This world has within it so many
cowardly men without a backbone
until we have within our midst those
things commonly called “hen-pecked
husbands.” Then we have those who
die bachelors rather than attempt to
manage one of the unruly creatures.
However, when properly managed
they are very gentle and affectionate.
As soon as a young man meets a
young lady who he believes he could
easily love and would enjoy loving
he should make arrangements through
a friend to get a more or less blind
dla'te with her. On their date he
should be very cold and indifferent.
When an opportunity presents itself
he should engage her in an argument
of little importance and disagree with
her on everything. Then in the pres
ence of a friend restate the argu
ment and get his friend to agree
On the second date he must im
press upon her that women are in
ferior to men in every respect. Use
all the scientific terms you know—
make sure you give the correct mean
ing to all of them.
Don’t pay any attention to her for
two or three weeks. When you do
though be as nice as possible. Ask
her for a date—plead with her if
necessary. Continue to be nice to her
and to date. (Don’t forget the gum.)
If she talks about her other suitors
don’t pay any attention. Let her rave
about them—they usually do. Don’t
even be interested enough in them to
ask a question. Let her do most of
the talking. Do not talk about your
self, your family, and above all do
not mention any of your lady friends.
Continue dating her as often as is
possible—never for one moment
should you let her know you care
anything about her until you are
quite positive she is interested in
you. But just as soon as you feel
confident of yourself and that she
does care for you then you must as
sume your nonchalant attitude. Let
her do all the love making—you take
the defensive. By doing this she will
be wiilling to do most anything for
you. After you have her to this point
you must have your way about every
thing. If ever an argument comes up
have your way or nothing.
Be mean to her when she is sweet
and gentle and make love to her when
she is mad.
“Steamboat’’ Gives Annual Junior-Senior

Eubus McDowell, prominent Mars

Amid the steam rising from two
giant pressing machines, “Steamboat”

The “grand finale” was presented
by the senior class in the form of a

in a retarded review.

Members and sponsors of the For
eign Language club presented an in
teresting program Tuesday, April 11,
which was featured by a discussion
led by Mr.s. Vann, “Legends of Brav
ery in Spain.”
Mrs. Vann offered an inspiring re
sume of her travels through Spain, a
country which she included in her
European itinerary. She said that
the Spaniards are a romantic people.
According to Mrs. Vann, Spain is al
most as cosmopolitan as is the Unit
ed States since the country includes
a wide range of nationalities, Celts,
Carthaginians, Romans, Goths, Arabs
and others. Because of the geograph
ical differences in Spain many dialects
are used, however about nine-tenths
of each Spanish district is Latin, Mrs.
An ancient myth says that Spain
came into existence when one of the
gods planted the Garden of Hes-
perides. All the other gods and god
desses gave him something beautiful
to plant in his new creation, thus
making Spain a paradise on earth.
Other interesting discussions were
led by Aloses McCall, “The Bow and
Arrow.” “Noebe’s Pride,” by Mar
garet Owen. “Chanson de Roland,”
by Rose Bradford.
The Dean of women at the Uni
versity of Illinois gives the following

Clothe le.ss; bathe more.
Worry less; work more.
Idle loss; play more.
Talk less; think more.
Go less; slc*ep more.
Waste less; give more.
Scold less; laugh more.
Preach less; practice more.
