Bob Jones of Oakland, Cal., left, edits the paper, and with Jane Dodge of Los Anfejles,' extreme right, conceived the notion of the survey to help students get along more amicably on dates. Second from left Is Virginia Parker of Pasadena, who has no dating problems heraklf (naturally), but contributed soma suggestions, anyway. Center is Wallace Brook of Helena, Mont., student body president, another sentrlbutor. Next Is e)ue Clarke, prominent soolally and a women's leaeatr, who thinks the survey may help out the critical situation. 3$rvay Md at Stanford Univeraify Lirt Soma of tfo Raaon Why Collaga Man Got "Griped" at Co-mds, and Vic-Vra.

Because they expect ue to stay at home while they go out with other girle. Because they pay more attention to the other girl on a double date (eoliegiate for & party of two couple) . Because they ineiet upon calling us "babes," "kirti," etc. Because they have such a trite line of chatter. Because they delight in being deliberately tactless. Because they think they've rented us for the' evening when they take us out. Because they take too much for granted. Because their gasoline supply, unlike their "line," is insufficient to get home on. , Because they call up for dates on a half-hour notice and are disgruntled when we're unable to go out. Because they're always talking about their ex-girla or about that time they REALLY got drunk. And the crowning insult made by the co-eds, in view of the rivalry between Stanford and the University of California, waa: Because they don't dance as well as the boys from U.

Almost every student had his or her oQrn idea of what was wrong ith the social conduct of the opposite sex. fcJERE are the leading reafj)n college men get "griped" at the co-eds: Because they daub lipstick in the middle of their ligk and leave the corners unpainted. Becaug! they invar&bly yell, "O-o-oh, I can't ride in the rumble W-at. I'll get my hair all mussed." Because they sing off-key while dancih Becautfe they giggle when they're not supposed to and remain blank-faced when we tell a good joke. Becautft they're always fishing for compliments. Because they gush. Becautje tbygy never have definite answer. Becauw they try to affect an Eastern accent or a Southern drawl, and consequently sound like a backwoodsman. Because they always manage to get immovable lipstick on our Palm Betch suit. Because they pretend to be ao helpless when everyone knows they're hollering for equal right. Because straight "A" themaclves, they muat salt us about our grades. Because they delight in running with other fellows. THE co-eds were none the lea frank in telling what they thought of the boys. Here's Why they're "griped": Because they can't hold their liquor.

I got a good vote for the word went around: "The Reverend must be a hell of a good preacher when he can get old Bill to take a soft drink." Bill, however, hoped I would never run again. forty years ago. That's the way I like 'em plenty of filling between the foot and the hanging walls." FRIENDSHIP? Can you find a purer proof than old Bill Webster trying to "do politics" for me down in southern Nevada. He was terribly handicapped, as I was a preacher running for th? U. S. Senate. The only influence in that camp was to buy drinks. Bill realized that it did not look just right to a man needs two things a a cheerful way of looking at T) LIVE happily, good friend und life. This West ync the Camera Caught It! One of a Series of the World's Most Unusual Nw Photograph of ours developed a man who is unique the likes of ( i P : "Doc!

He O has a way of looking at things which gives him the most unruffled, unworried and unanxious disposition I have ever met. Shecpherdere go crsiy. Our asylum is filled with them. They live alone is the explanation given. Then why not the prospectors? His life is even more solitary. No camp-tender visits him. No dogs surround him. His only accompaniment is the bray of the burro, which ought to drive him crasy. The trouble with the sheepherder is that he is all the time counting his sheep. I think that is the affliction a lot of other folks suffer which makes life s constant distraction. The hospitals are filled with cases of "nerves." I haven't a good name like psychopathist, so I can't charge a fee, but I do call on a lot of them. Down deep I am sure that most of their troubles are "due to just counting sheep. They worry about what they have and what they have not; about what they have kwt and what is scattered, what has wandered away, and how many they will have tomorrow, what might happen to what remains and where art the strayed, the lost and the stolen.

It is the Prospector the old fellow who goes wandering over tho hill looking for treasure. It will cost you something to know him, for he will lure you with his drean& but you -would be poor indeed if you had not tjhnred them. He is different fin other borrowers. He doesn't "take you in"; Brew Ate Adams ht "lets you in." That's different. One is creating un obligation, the other is sharing an opportunity His risks haven't even the element of chance that a good risk ought to have.
