In the current issue of "College Humor," an article entitled "Iowa" and purporting to give an inside story of the life nt tho University of Iowa has two or three point?! of special interest; to Mason City and North Iowa.

Second, in referring to the "La'.v Jubilee," law school gridiron fest which fell under the faculty ax e few years ago, mention is made oi John Sennefi. How About It, John? "The Jubilee," Messrs. Sheldon and Myhre write, "was comparable to the gridiron banquet at mos' schools--only it was a low comedy minstrel show where everything anc everyone were put on the pan. Some blame the death--or suicide--of the .iubilee on Paul Minniek and John Senneff; others on George Hurley Anyway it died and was buriec with much ceremony on,the steps o the old capitol a year later.

ROGERS HOME MADE PASTRY FERS HOME MADI of the institution. Nor does it pretend to be. A charming word picture of the Iowa river meandering thru tho heart of the university grounds in Iowa City appears early in the article. Then this pleasani paragraph, still on the first page: 'The High Hat Is Out. 'Against this background six thousand of your sons and daughters of Main street study, loaf and play nine months oC every year. Mostly play--here democracy rules and the high hat is out. The formal introduction is superfluous at Iowa. You like the looks o£ a man. You speak to him. He likes your looks and speaks to you. That may be the beginning of a life friendship. Any man can be popular at Iowa, all things being' equal, by merely smiling and putting out lots of glad hand. It's plain old-fashione'a Democracy, no matter which way you look at it." ' There are friendly queries. A wondering what has happened to Marg Hill of Cedar Rapids, to Mary Ambrose of Nevada, and to Chief Snyder of Bella" Plain. A mention, a discouraging one, ot tradition of the prairie university that has sprung up in the heart of the tall corn land, and an account of the fraternity methods of pledging. ' Fraternity Mansions. "It has been one long heydey for real estate men and building contractors in Iowa City the last five years," continue the authors. "F"or during that time no less than 3C Greek letter houses--any one of which would -not be a . misfit in Westchester county, Luke Forest or Pasadena--have brot ta Iowa City an extravagant revival of Dutch, Old English and Colonial architecture. Now your sons and daughters, reared in a frame house and fed on a pine table in the kitchen eat and sleep in castles of stone and mahogany for four years. Then go back .o the frame house and forget about alumni building pledges. It is an unhealthy condition at best." And then the paragraphs to Council at Charles City Takes $5,400 to Settle 5 Cases CHARLES CITY, Feb. 3. -- The city council accepted the offer of Emil Rasnuissen and the Southern Sureties company of §5,400 in settlement of five court cases brot against them by the city for defective paving laid by Rasmussen in 1920 on Gilbert, East Clark and Jackson streets.

Trial notices were filed the term of court which concluded Saturday but the settlement disposed of the cases. The city will have to pay the court costs. Mrs. Fred J.

CHARLES CITY BRIEFS arouse parental trepidation! Allegations that beer and dancing--and blanket parties--have become institutions, minor and major, in university circles. Flat Thumbs Predicted. "Young married alumni of Iowa have often predicted that all their children would be born with flat thumbs," says one paragraph. "Perhaps this paragraph requires an explanation. You see, Iowa beer is no ordinary brew. It is a distinct Iowa creation. Only lowans can mix it and only lowans can drink it--well. Iowa beer is any one of a number of brands of near beer, spiked generously (generosity measured by capacity) with a "high grade" of raw alcohol. The formula is simple--complications arrive with the mixing. Native son first pours out one gill of contents A from near beer bottle B (usually down native son's throat). Next, one gill of alcohol C replaces contents A in neck of bottle B. Practiced hand D seize;; bottle B and practiced thumb K firmly caps mouth of bottle B. The whole is then shaken vigorously until alcohol C is absorbed by contents A. Enter carbonic gas pressure F against practiced thumb D, causing severe flattening of practiced thumb D. Hence children of young married lowiv alumni arc born with flat thumbs, Q. E. D." ' There is mention of Patou gowns that avail nothing if not worn by maidens graceful in the'dance, ot' happy after the ball parties at Reich's--and then: Blanket Parties Major Course. "Altho you will not find them in the university catalog," say the co- .iiithors, "blanket parties should be listed as 'majors' in the. spring cur- S riculum. In fact, the claim is tint this now famous national outdoor sport owes it.s origin to Iowa.
