Cathedral Seen By A . U . Pilgrims ( Continued from page 1 ) of the most impressive and distinctive portions of the cathedral . It is in striking Norman architecture and of a later period in design than the chapel of the Resurrection , which we next visited .

Going through many deep-set doorways , passing many half-lit corridors and finally climbing a flight of stairs we came up upon the floor of the North Transept . _Although half completed walls and stone works were on all sides the sight was enough to make us pause in the rain to look and admire for buttress and column sprang up ahead until they were lost in a maze of scaffolding high overhead ...

When one first gets off the sightseeing bus , he is struck with George Washington s foresight and business ability , for there is an admission charge of 50 cents . When all these 50 cent s are added together at the close of a nice , warm summer day , there are quite a few pennies in the total . This is quite a tribute to George , for even Babe Ruth would have a hard time drawing 50 cents per head for people looking over his apartment .

_Skeleton Speaks to First Interviewer Sent by the editor of this issue to interview the new member of American University s faculty , I entered the lady s classroom , nervously wondering what questions I should ask her . As I closed the door and rested my eyes upon her stoney countenance , I was startled by her pale complexion , milk-white in appearance , which served as a striking _background for her large , expressionless eyes .
