Said Professor William Lyon
Phelps of Yale: A person who would
stand before you and advise you to
get the most out of youth-that it is
the happiest season of your life-is
not telling you the truth. You grow
happier as you get older. As I stand
before you young folks I don't envy
any one of you your youth. I had as
fine a time as you when I was young,
but I would not go back to my youth
for anything. I'n much happier now.
I really believe that by the time I'm
60 I'll be havi\o the timen of mty life.

housefly strikes the bald as a particu
