These reports are more or less vague as to the nature of the amounts involved and also as to the names of the donors, who seem to wish to re- main anonymous for the most ...

frWPi FEATURES SPORTS BOOK REVIEWS WITHOUT nLaBBsn ■saa m, THE RICE PUDDING RAISINS PUDDING Mention The Magazine Section THE MENTALITY OF APES by Wolfgang Koehlcr. This work, The Mentality of Apes, is, as the title would lead us to believe, the result of the author's extended psychological studies in the intelligence of apes at the Anthropoid Station in Tenerife from the years 1913 to 1917. As such, the story element .acquires a rather subdued tone such as the distant rumbling of music. To those ac- quainted with the author's previous work, this book offers no departure; in fact, we would be forced into the conclusion that this piece of literature would be no different from what it appears to be, both by the examina- tion of the author's previous record and by the fact that he is at present Professor of Philosophy in the Uni- versity of Berlin. With these facts well in mind we are now prepared to examine in greater detail and, needless to say, with greater care, the contents of the ...

Tlie more conservative mem- bers pointed out that anyone who really mattered was fully capable of taking part in any literary discussion which might take place in the usual procedure of the society, and that therefore, no such restriction was nec- essary.

In consequence, he is sum- moned to the ottlce of the president and severely scolded. The president was greatly perturbed because Clar- ence was so hard on psychology profs.

The itaff of the Improved Thresher were honor guests and were there- lore entitled to drink more tea than anybody else. The young ladies en- tertained no doubt with a view of re- trieving the paltry brides which won them their illustrous places in Vanity Fair. There is some doubt as to the suc- cess of this method of madness since a number of the members of the Im- proved Thresher had Scottish ances- ters, which, of course, makes them Eskiimoes. A delectable color scheme of pur- ple, orange and green was carried out to express the personalities of the dainty hostesses.

Daley Throws Campus Into Uproar Over Campanile The Editor of the Campanile, Mr. Tom Daley and Company emerged from the throes of Bacchus enough this week to attend one class and to make a radical statement which threw the entire campus into a tur- moil and nearly started a riot. Mr. Daley cleared his throat, shift- ed his left eye and began: "The Campanile will come out. It will come out without doubt or rea- son, three minutes after the last pen has crashed the final exams into the past." Just after the statement was made, an irate Junior paced the campus, trnawintf his nails and muttering dark threats under his breath. "And to think," said the Junior, "that I planned a nice little trip to Houston in August just to get my Campanile and that wretch has spoiled it all." Other expressions along this line wore made. So the Thresher, which is ever averse to anything that re- motely approaches radicalism, sent a competent reporter to the Camp- anile office to n form the revolution- ists ...

Miss Lewis, it will be remem- bered, is the very same young lady whose ptomaine sandwiches swept the freshman picnic by storm. Miss Lewis was at her very best on the night of the big hoof rodeo, which is very good indeed, for Miss Lewis has a way about her that holds the eye. Appointments perfect, crowd overflowing, spirits jovial, Miss Lewis had the party of her life. The dance floor was hardly distin- guishable- after the first hour, due to the many writhing, insidious figures that insisted in rubbing against each other and making What was once child's play into a calf and elbow bat- tle that waxed furiously till midnight. There seemed but one thing wrong with the dance, according to Miss Lew- is. Then were not enough persons present. She had only invited half of Houston, and the rest of Houston, ju...
