Best of all, they have been faithful and dependable. Never has it been necessary to remind any of them of a duty or promise. Their work has always been of the highest order. In conclusion, we wish to make it known that we were planning to have a men's issue in the near future, but gave it up when the girls' issue appeared.

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 that imagination always paints as the fairest and the most delectable of the things man may one-four- th co-e- possess. 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 violet and the four-leclover, and the succulent mustard green all come forth timidly to delight the eye too long forced to dwell on the preserved fern in the picture album and the dried butter bean in the boarding house the latter flanked by that "prepared" cousin of his, the navy bean. What can be more pleasing to the sight than a field of emerald grass and sproutlets of weeds dotted o'er with quaint blossoms as yet untenanted by the myriads of pestiferous little red bugs, who will be the unin st af F. 0.

What is, half so delicious as the boiled jowl and greens with .the appetizing whose medicinal virtues arc so highly praised?.. Besides, the d ruby radish and the lettuce and the unstrung bean 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 tra-lcome the campus any morning.
