NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU
FIGHT, MAKE UP FOR THE
COSTUME BALL
By Margaret Mason
On Monday she was a saintly nun,
On Tuesday a Carmen" bold,
On Wednesday she was the harem's
pride
In veils and an anklet gold;
On Thursday night in a- cheesecloth
scarf
She went as a piece of cheese,
On Friday night as "The Breath of
Spring"
She started to sneeze and sneeze;
Saturday found her a Red Cross
nurse,
Most terribly cross and red,
For after a week of costume balls
She really was almost dead;
But even then on the Sabbath morn
She wasn't herself, they said,
For she was a pink pajama girl
When they tucked her into bed.

The beings that can leap the
greatest distance in proportion with
their sizes are the flea and the grass
hopper. The former can hop over an
obsta.de 500 times its height, which
is the same as if a man could hop
over a mountain 3,000 feet high. A
grasshopper can jump 200 times its
length.
