It means that all of us fell down, in a crisis; that our pep is a fly-by-night thing; that we aren't one tenth good enough for our team; that we were all "asleep at. the switch;" and that we didn't wake up until the eleventh hour—and at. that hour it was al- most too late.

Neither can tiie fat girl Qualify as being totally unattractive, for she does attract attention through virtue of her size. Hence the plain girl is usually a thin girl. What should be willowy curves! of grace is nothing but a freak semblance of symmetry made of many [acute an- gles. j Her eyes, "those windijrs of the soul," teflect only longing -for beauty in their tired, strained ex- pression.
