have been faithful and dependable. Never has it been necessary to remind any of them of a duty or promise. Their work

Spring and Love,
When the poet wrote that immortal line, "In the spring a
young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love," he expressed about
of the world's wisdom on the subject
of the immortal passion. If he had included luscieus summer,
hazy golden autumn and old winter, clad in snow and cheery
crispness, he would have said all there was to be said concerning
the young man's fancy. This observation is based on a thorough study of some eight hundred students and three hundred
on the campus in the past four years and the writer is
ready to maintain now and hereafter that almost every day in
the year, except just before Christmas, the young man's lissome
fancy runs a foolish little race in the same old direction after
the same sweet

But the Kernel has no desire to take up the shillalah and
apply it to the figurative head of the philosophy of our good
friend Tennyson far be it. What boots it if the student's vagrant thoughts do journey to the same glorious realms every
day in the year? The fact remains that spring is the season for
love and love is the gentle emotion for the springtime season.
Ah, lovely spring; 'tis then the blushing dandelion takes on itself a hue as of creamery butter, the

cousin of his, the navy bean. What can be more pleasing to the

and the rest of the tribe from the early garden are ready to
charge on the lasislude winter left behind misnamed "spring
fever" and to put the "pep" into the partakers of these celestial delicacies whose merits have been so long and so shamefully
unsung. We doubt if Lamb's story of the invention of roast
pork would be half so interesting as the relating of the manner
in which jowl and greens first got together back in the misty
days and delighted the dwellers in the Garden of
Eden, which, we firmly believe, was located somewhere in Old
Kaintuck. Where else could have been found the wonderful
cornbread that goes to round out a "greens dinner?"
But that is immaterial. Spring and love, and why? are
the questions at issue. Perhaps it's the jowl and greens; perlawns in the soft
haps it's the flowers and the
while moonlight; perhaps it's the balmy air and the industrious
bird assiduously seeking the early worm, and mayhap it's only
inscmnia, but certain it is that young men's fancies take on renewed activity in April. If you don't believe it, take a look at
the campus any morning. Spring and love, tra-ltripping lightly and only the jilted brethren and the confirmed
