However, Wednesday afternoon with its 20vbelow z.ero was plenty long for upper classmen, yel all too short for freshmen and sophomores. Our temperatures were too losv lo register by 3:10. However, m a n y important events arc crowded into February as though purposely to compensate for its brevity. We think of many great men whose anniversaries are Celebrated in February: St. Valentine, the patron saint; Washington, founder and father of our republic; Dickens, novelist; Lindbergh, aviation idol: Longfellow beloved poet; Ade, Indiana's humorist; and Lincoln, the grea' emancipator. February also marks the twenty-seventh anniversary of the Boy Scouts oE America and the lenten period beginning on Ash Wednesday. And it was In February 1917 that the United Stales severed relations with Germany which culminated in a declaration of wat April 6. Today, 20 years later, the world looks dart, with sinister \va clouds hovering about. Let its look forward with courageous op ·timism and faith, and hooc for a permanent peace.--S. F. G.

Ave. The super exam in English which gave a headaehe to juniors and seniors Wednesday afternoon and a vacation to lower classmen produced varied reactions. We thought the whole thing was pretty elementary. All we had to do for 105 minutes was take a choice of four answers on synonyms, spelling and literature. As we couldn't pronounce the words, say nothing ol spelling or defining them, and had read none of the books or poems referred to, the results boiled down to the inevitable law of averages. One of the questions--"Did the idol come back for his eye?" sort of got us. Everyone that we knew thought he did. Just the same, it haunts us. We liked that one, too, which called for a synonym for ''apotheosis." We had never considered this before and we are glad the eminent trio of Columbia doctors of philosophy brought it to our attention. However, we still don't know whether "Rikki Tikki Tavi" was a rat, a mongoose, a yak, or a bear cub, but thank heaven, we know what a jabberwock is. We learned that in kindergarten, but from there on our education seems to have been sadly neglected. No aid to ihe morals of the school was the intelligence test perpetrated the following day. We lost consciousness during the story about the little ant which went in the hole and brought out another grain of wheat, and then another little ant which went in the hole and brought out another grain of wheat and so on world withou end, ad infinilum. It is better not to think about intelligence tests. Most seniors accepted the thing fatalistically for after al) those years o[ what is facetiously referred to as education, nothing matters very much. In a worse state were the teachers who gave and graded the mag- nus something or other. Directioi sheets for instructors gave cvei the patter for properly administering the test, but the task grading it proved too much lot several who went about the corridors speaking- incoherently o perhaps profainly. We' don't know for sure, as to the latter, for w kept a safe distance. All of this goes to prove thn love conquers all and fate jus keeps on happening--two quota lions which did not come up in the exam.--R. H. P.
