I would rather see his trousers
Barely hangin' to his hips,
Or perhaps wo little' buttons-r-Axtd
Ms blouse all full of rips.
I would rather see him playin'
With the roughnecks on the street,
With his cheeks alTfull of redness
And some health above his feet;
To" gaze upon a youngster
Who isdressed all spic and span,
And whose folks just brag about him
'Cause "he's such a little man."
Who wears velvet waists and bloom
And his hair that's waxed down
And who studies every evening,
And who eats and talks just right.
Who is lovely to the girlies,
Who is teacher's pride and goy,
And,by George, you sometimeswon-
Was he really born a boy.
He is taught and bred by parents,
Who won't let him raise the deace.
They've got dough, but he's be better
If they'd only turn him loose.

BOYS IF YOU'LL lET 'EM

Forest really believe that "boys will
be boys" and "girls will be girls" if
' their parents will only let them.
A lot of Lake Forest's poor little

big motor bus. Of course, the sons
and daughters of Wealthy parents

classy limousine ,if they wanted to,
but it's va blamed sight more fun to
ride right along with the poor tots.
The bus is furnished for the little
This idea of their kin mixing with
the poorer children may seem dis
graceful to th parents, but te kids
think it's great sport.
Say! I'd rather see a youngster
With -his hands as black as coal,
And his face all smugged, with play
And his sfyoes all worn and ol'.
