LINES FROM A DUB
Why can't I skate, ah, me,
Over the ice afar,
Less horizontally,
More perpendicular?
When with my skates I .frame
Figures of eight, etcet,
. Do I get wild acclaim?
No, all I get is wet!
When o'er the frigid lakes
Free as a bird I roam,
Every one present makes
Offers to help me home!

Hark! ambulances whirl!

"Why can't I skate, ah me,
Like any skating star,
Less horizontally,
More perpendicular?"
Thomas R. Ybarra in N.'Y. Times.

gives the suit its distinction and
don't omit the bag, it's quite the most
artistic touch in the entire outfit.
