A LINE O'PIPE Stick to the Pipe-- Let the Smoke Blow Wher* It Will By T. PIPE THE MISSING JANUARY THAW Now January once again, Has come and gone, 1 And long the memory of It, Will linger on. · It leaves us in its passing with, But one regret, And that's the January thaw, We didn't get. The bitin* cold was with us much, The month throughout; It gave us something we for years Can talk about. And when the summer comes we'll oft, Remember yet, The missing January thaw, We didn't get. K S. Should it happen that nature reverses itself and an improbable January/thaw should occur between the time this is written and the time the foregoing meets your startled gaze, please disregard same. However, judging from the past performance of the weather this winter, we feel that the possibility of such an occur- ence is extremely slight and of little consequence. . And In this connection may we suggest to those who like to let their minds dwell on unpleasant things that they might concentrate a bit on the mess we will enjoy when, and if, the snow and ice begin to leave. Especially if it goes in pretty much of a hurry. HOWEVER, LIKE THE END OF THE WAR,' THE PROBABLE DATE OF THE SNOW\AND ICE DISAPPEARING ACT IS SO FAR IN THE FUTURE IT SHOULD CAUSE THE MOST OF US BUT LITTLE UNEASINESS. Tuesday is groundhog day and one of our favorite holidays. Especially so should the little varmint be reasonable and not see his fateful shadder. And wouldn't it be Just our hard luck, what with all the cloudy weather we have had to endure this winter, if g. h day should dawn clear and cloudless. Let us not contemplate such an unhappy event. THE GROUNDHOG IF IT ONLY WOULD, CAN DO US ALL A LOT OF GOOD. Note to George R. Ludeman; Did you get them roses that Mr. Straw tells us about planted in the ground. If so how did you do it. We still have on hand some daffodil and tulip bulbs -.vhich we received the middle of last December and which we would like to get in the ground if we only knew how to do it. On How to Bend a Pipe Stem T.

Maybe the home slicing of bread program is saving flour but we doubt it considerable.

School Adds 'Courses' for Its Professors CHICAGO, (UP.)--The war is forcing a turnabout at Northwestern University and the professors are going back to school. Approximately 100 professors temporarily will quit their academic roles to take "refresher courses" formulated to meet an expected shortage of teachers in fields essential to victory. A survey among the professors disclosed that many were able, in addition to their own specialty, to teach other subjects provided time could be spent in refresher courses. Four courses were devised for the brushing up process. Mathematics, chemistry, physics and the military use oC maps are the "first of. the courses. · Others will be added in various fields. The survey revealed a large source of. teaching ability among the professors. The College of Liberal Arts produced 160 members of the faculty able to tench one or more subjects outside their regular fields. The "refresher courses" will enable a professor of astronomy or a professor of economics to teach physics and map interpretation. Professors of philosophy are prepared to teach English, history, sociology and journalism, and afl- er the "refresher" will be able to teach physics and map interpretation. The "refresher courses" are in preparations a g a i n s t teaching shortages and the members of the faculty taking the courses will continue teaching their own subjects until the actual shortages develop.
