Around the SWC

In a column bowing out after
a year’s service and turning the
paper to a new staff, a columnist
for the SMU Campus recalled the
following events that had occur
red during his tenure: a Japan
ese flag flying in front of an
ROTC federal inspection, an alli
gator in a dormitory shower,
Dresden being the capital of
China and St. Augustine invent

Also, a candidate for the presi
dency of the SMU student body
proposed to reduce tuition rates
by selling bricks acquired- by
tearing down class room build
ings. By borrowing money from
the students, he promised to give
them a 150 per cent return on
their activity fees. Asked where
he would get the money to pay
off these loans, he replied, “Don’t
worry, we only owe it to our
' The president of TU’s Student
Assn, has been asked to be re
moved from office by a petition
filed stating that he violated
campaigning regulations in the
recent campus elections held in
Austin in which he was elected.
The president stated that he
had done “nothing to be ashamed
of” while a petitioner said that
the petition was filed to “call
attention to general student
opinion which has led to widely
spread dishonest practices in stu
dent government elections.”

A freshman coed suffered a
most humiliating accident as she
was being honored at a tradi
tional engagement shower.
Following the shower, the coed
slipped and fell on the steps and
was forced to spend the night in
the Student Health Center. Her
mother answered all replies by
stating “I’m confident that she
will be all right.”

Also, a TU student is currently
engaged in a desperate fight for
the life of a friend.
A prisoner being held in Com

numerous letters to prison and

He said that Guatemala, a short
milk supply country, is trying the
substitute with good results in a
program to boost the nutritional
level of its children. The substi
tute is known as incaporina.
Incaporina is a combination of
38 per cent cottonseed flour, 29
per cent corn, 29 per cent sor
ghum grain and a smattering of
the necessary vitamins and min
erals. It is mixed with water to
make a drink.
Children relish it, Lyman said,
and the cost is a mere penny a
glass in Guatemala.

often come down with a protein

kwashiorkor when they are un

When inside storage is not avail

Outside stored seed should be

cooling system should be installed
to avoid seed heating.

EUROPE MADE SIMPLE: NO. 2
'Last week we discussed En^and, the first stop on the tour of
Europe that every American college student is going to make
this summer. Today we will discuss your next stop, France—or
the Pearl of the Pacific, as it is generally called.
To get from England to France, one greases one’s body and
swims the English Channel. Similarly, to get from France to
Spain, one greases one’s body and slides down the Pyrenees.
As you can see, the most important single item to take to Europe
is a valise full of grease.
No, I am wrong. The most important single item to take to
Europe is a valise full of Marlboro Cigarettes. Oh, what a piece
of work is Marlboro! If you think flavor went out when filters
came in, treat yourself to a Marlboro. The filter works perfectly,
and yet you get the full, zestful, edifying taste of the choice
tobaccos that precede the filter. This remarkable feat of cigarette
engineering was achieved by Marlboro’s research team—Fred
Softpack and Walter Fliptop—and I, for one, am grateful.
But I digress. We were speaking of France—or the Serpent of
the Nile, as it is popularly termed.
First let us briefly sum up the history of France. The nation
was discovered in 1492 by Madame Guillotine. There followed
a series of costly wars with Schleswig-Holstein, the Cleveland
Indians, and Captain Dreyfus. Stability finally came to this
troubled land with, the coronation of Marshal Foch, who
married Lorraine Alsace and had three children: Flopsy, Mopsy,
and Charlemagne. This later became known as the Petit Trianon.
Marshal Foch—or the Boy Orator of the Platte, as he was
. affectionately called—was succeeded by Napoleon who intro
duced shortness to France. Until Napoleon, the French were the
tallest nation in Europe. After Napoleon, most Frenchmen wore
able to walk comfortably under card tables. This later became
known as the Hunchback of Notre Dame.
Napoleon was finally exiled to Elba where he made the
famous statement, “Able was I ere I saw Elba,” which reads
the same whether you spell it forwards or backwards. You can
also spell Marlboro backwards—Ofobiram. Do not, however,
try to smoke Marlboro backwards because that undoes all the
efficacy of the great Marlboro filter.
After Napoleon’s death the French people fell into a great
depression, known as the Louisiana Purchase. For over a cen
tury everybody sat around moping and refusing his food. This
torpor was not lifted until Eiffel built his famous tower, which
made everybody giggle so hard that today France is the gayest
country in all Europe.
Each night the colorful natives gather at sidewalk cafes and
shout “Oo-la-la” as Maurice Chevalier promenades down the
Champs Elysees swinging his Malacca cane. Then, tired but
happy, everyone goes to the Louvre for bowls of onion soup.
The principal industry of France is cashing travelers checks.
Well sir, I guess that’s all you need to know about France.
Next week we’ll visit the Land of the Midnight Sun—Spain.

cigarettes is Marlboro, the best of the twn-filters is Philip
Morris; both available in soft pack or flip-top box.
