DEATH DUST Or, In Peril With Ping How [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 27 January 1921
DEATH DUST Or, In Peril With Ping How This is the story of a beautiful maiden, a gallant youth and a Chinese witch doctor, Ping How. How the paths of the three crossed and the fatal consequences of their crossing, we now propose to narrate. To do so properly, we must go back to Pell St., New York, that locality of Oriental perfume and mystery. It is a bright Spring morning. Pell St. is looking cheerful in the early sunshine. Chinamen pitterpatter along the narrow sidewalks, arms hidden in gorgeous, yard-wide sleeves. At a window high above :he street sits a pretty Chinese maidon. She little recks the long, lean, bony hand stealing down over the back of her chair —the five hooked fingers creeping closer and closer to her Eve's apple. Of what is this pretty Chinese maiden thinking on this bright June morning? "A yen for her thoughts," say you, and a yen for her chances if that hand ever encircles her petite neck. She is thinking of her Oriental lover, Joe Dong—student, benefactor of h...

Anxious Moments. [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 27 January 1921
Anxious Moments. When the doctor visits you and after a vain endeavor to see your tonsils calls for a spoon. When the woman who has told her company that she bakes her own bread sees one of her friends about to bite into the Hathaway Bakery stamp. When, upon reaching Lake St. in the morning, it suddenly dawns on you that there is to be an exam in Philosophy the first hour. Now that debates are in full swing it is not an unusual sight to see wildeyed Ciceros darting about the campus with speeches in their hip pockets which they are ready to pull upon some unsuspecting classmate who is minding his own business. Others go about with a vacant stare, gazing at third story windows as if looking for a hall to lecture in, and still others go home and lock themselves in their rooms for hours, while they hurl facts at an unoffending bed or washstand which has no comeback.

LET'S LAUGH! [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 27 January 1921
LET'S LAUGH! It's about time we had a little fun. The Mid-Years are past even though they are not passed. (It required considerable effort to get this pun in its present condition. Treat it gently.) This is a nonsensical edition of THE HEIGHTS. Some of our "friends" will probably burn up the telephone telling us every edition is that way. That's nice. As we were saying, you will find a little sense and a heap of nonsense in this issue. About the jokes: some of them are home-made; most of them are stolen. We have tried in all cases, to feive credit where credit is due. When you have finished figuring up your averages and have found that by mixing oodles of optimism with the cold percentages, you cannot hope to gather more than a flimsy "58%" in Physics, then throw your worries in the waste basket and read THE HEIGHTS. If you can't find something here to give you a laugh, you're hopeless. May your conditions be few. Horace, turn on the laughing gas!
