Holidays Are Near
Only fifteen days until the holi

Why is everyone’s walk light and
springy ? Why do the teachers
grin ? Why do the girls laugh ?
Only fifteen days until the Christ
No mattei' whom you may be
talking with, no matter where vou
are, the prevailing thought for
conversation is the ever closer
proximity of the holidays. Cal
endars are exhibited on walls and
tables in many rooms, with their
December days in the happy
process of being checked off one
by one. The spirit of joy over the
ajiproaching holida3^s is visible
Only fifteen days until the holi
days ! Why are books so little
seen? Where are the thoughtful
looks of yesterday on students
faces ? Whjf does the library
look so emptv" and deserted?
Wherefore creeps in that re
proaching tinge to the teachers’
■ voices? Only fifteen days until
the Christmas holidays!
No one can study. It isn’t easy
to write long English themes.
Tis not the time to spend hours
reading on some musty subject
in the library. This is not the
season for the best work in
classes. Only fifteen more days
until the Christmas holidays!
That’s the thought of the hour!

Ad Solicitors Wanted
For The Blues
Several pleas have been made in
chapel by June Tweed, advertis
ing manager, for help in getting
ads for the Blues. Especially
needed are day students with cars,
for there are places for solicita
tion which cannot be reached by
the street car.
This is a serious need, so won’t
someone please offer aid? “Now
is the time for all good men to
come to the aid of their partv!”
The Blues is sadly in need of ads ;
if it were possible, the whole back
page would be devoted simply to
these. From these advertise
ments comes the money to help
in the publishing of the paper.
So, students, don’t wait for June
to ask again, but offer your help

Thanksgiving, a good many of
