but wonder. i
ONLY THE LITTLE DOG LAUGHS.
We hear that the cost of a college
education is rising, and those who
cannot afford a higher education un
der any conditions are amused.
' We read that chicle from which
chewing gum is made is advancing

Rockefeller keep his head above wa

Hoff wedding in last week s issue our
reporter intended to state that "after
a brief wedding trip the newly mar

proofreader, and which we regret ex

HOW TO SAVE THE NATION
According to our foreign (and no
mestic) critics we have got to adopt
German efficiency, French patriot
ism, British calm, Serbian courage
and Bulgarian buttermilk but
please, oh, please, let us keep our
American griddle cakes!.
