at the University is not dead. "What
ever the "old-timer" could have said
about what was not done last year,
cannot be reiterated this year lor the
students are doing everything and do

Did you ever see the like of danc
ing? Why, there is not a Saturday or
Friday night that some fraternity, or
sorority, or boarding house in this
town does not give a dance. There is
always the Daniel Boone Tavern as
sembly or the Columbia Hall town
dance, or just a bit df dancing after
dinner in the boarding house. Even
the University Commons boasts of a
Casino every night during the dinner
hour, lit is dance, dance, dance, until
small, thinly-shod feet are getting
tired and sore; and yet they dance.
Dancing is the lazy-man's form of
entertainment. If anyone wishes to
give a (party to entertain some friends,,
he spends a few dollars on decora
tions, a little more on "food" and then
gets a player piano, or an orchestra,
or a music box and, figuratively
speaking, says "Go to it! On with the
dance," and his worries are over;
his guests are entertained. The
pathetic thing about it is that they
are really entertained.
It would take a great deal of time
and forethought to give any sort of
entertainment where dancing was not
the chief feature. There is always a
.place for dancing in twentieth cen
tury amusements, but a real enter
tainer would not make it the -principal
part of his program.
Charades are sadly out of date, but
what fun we used to have at parties
where our wits were made keener
by the sharp contests between the two
.groups at the old game. There was
always a great deal of fun and much
ingenuity displayed. It was a type of
amusement which not only the par
ticipant, but the on-looker, enjoyed.
Tableaux were beautiful and artis
tic features of entertainments once
upon a time, and little playlets, either
written by one of the guests or by a
friend, which were acted out by as
piring amateurs were the best possi
ble form of good time. How proud
you were when your son or daughter
starred in the cast, or when he mere
ly appeared dressed as a butler and
bowed profoundly to the leading lady!
There are hundreds of ways for en
tertaining friends, but it seems as if
every one chooses the easiest form.
Now no one thinks of making his
guest a hearer or "see-er" of Interest
ing little scenes or stunts, he be
lieves the only way of making the
visitor have an enjoyable time is to
give hira a little physical exercise.
And most of the time, he is right.
After all, isn't the biggest fool the
man who is so busy putting away
something for a rainy day that he
hasnt time to enjoy the sunshine?
YOUTH NOT ENDLESS DELIGHT
Man, in his endless quest, has reck
oned only the delights of prolonged
life, and never the curse it might
bring. Throughout the ages there has
gone the yearning and the search for
a means of lengthening ilife and pow
ers of youth beyond the alloted' span.
Men have sought long for the secret
of this supposed elixir of life. They
have sought for it in the alchemists'
mixtures, in strange springs, in far
off lands, in liquid gold itself.
The names of Brown-Sequard, Rog
er Bacon, Ponce de Leon and Cagllos
tro have gone down in history as
those who sought but failed to find
renewed youth. At times these men
believed they had found the secret.
They claimed that years and years of
' age had been substituted by youth.
-But to their great disappointment
they eventually had to admit that the
secret of renewed youth had not been
Their long search ended only in the
despair of old and broken men, long
ing in vain for the return of their
Man has always thought of the de
lights of prolonged life, and never the
curse it might bring. Vet, in litera
ture, fable ,and legend we find there
may be a darker side to a deathless
existence. The dancers of Kolbeck
felt the curse because they sighed for
an eternity of their wild revels. The
curse fell on the Flying Dutchman
because he vowed he would double
Cape Horn whether God willed it or
not; on the Wandering Jew because
he declined a moment's rest upon his
threshold to the cross-laden Christ
There is solace for those who seek
and find not. Were man to lire Jong
er upon the earth would not the spir
itual die out of him?
