Then too, we got many a laugh from Ruth Sanders' report of the humorous experiences of Lauterbach, the jolly fat man. We have learned much from the 101 books. It was indeed worthwhile to sidestep from the regular routine of text books for a biography project as well as for a project on contemporary poets and short start' wrlt- terg.
