Baron Munchausen, of whom It is claimed told the biggest and best stories ever heard in Germany Is the human to whom this odd monument is erected.

Spirit of Cynicism Is Charge Against Undergraduates One of the charges most frequently made against higher education points to a spirit of cynicism which supposedly plagues our undergraduates. For Instance, there is the ostentatious cynic, who is no cynic nt all, but an ambitious noise In an empty barrel. There Is the surly cynic, who nurses his wounded vanity or a disappointed ambition. He discovers that his own sphere Is not the center of the universe and promptly embraces cynicism as an alibi. There Is the immature cynic who Judgments his flippant thinks strange and new. There is the cynicism which serves as an intellectual sausage-grinde- r, with all manner of scraps going in one end and only one kind scrap coming out the other. of There is the haggling cynic, by far the most despicable, who remorselessly dissects and analyzes human character and action, but In these good days when man' seems to have everything mntcrinl contributing to the case of living there Is much talking and writing about the effect of this machine age on human happiness which 13 iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii Indeed the true Index of the ! unfitness of life. deMachinery and labor-savin- g ' vices In general have nothing to do HBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBsl with the individual's acquiring an understanding of the art of living, except perhaps to give relief from the drudgery of existence and and, therefore, decided to live into more opportunity therefore, crowd Into one small life a great- stead of die.
