The extreme heat, as well as the
scanty rainfall, has done considerable damage to trees and shrubs
on the campus, Mr. Norris R. Elliot, of the department of Horticulture, said.
The temperature which reached
101 degrees in July has drastically
affected the shrubbery, since the
rainfall has been no more than 13

The old trees have survived very
well, but are losing their leaves
early. The watering of the shrubs
by the maintenance department
has made possible the saving of the
entire growth.
From 18 to 20 of the younger
trees have been killed and more
are dying, while the grass which
looks very brown, is reported to
be in good condition.

Since that time, the article goes

training in bacteriology and medical

answer was, "Stay pickled." Well!
Then we wanted to know "Is my
sweetheart true to me?" And into
the small aperture came, "Yes,
when he's with you." We immediately severed all relations with our
sweetheart. We also kept away
from the scales for two days. But
the spirit of the scales was in our
blood, and we had to return.
We missed our old sweetheart, so
we asked. "Shall I fall in love?"
The answer was, "Yes, but be careful!" So we're careful. But we
wanted to know, "Am I right?" We
were told. "Yes. but don't argue!"
Then Just on general principles, we
turned to the question "Should I?"
And into view came "No, you'd better not!" So we didn't.
We stayed away from the scales
for a few days, but we felt an irrepressible urge to go back. So we
did. And we set the dial on "Shan

When we asked "What is my greatest fault?" we weren't quite prepared for "Snoring!" We've slept
with ourself for many years, and
never have we heard ourself snore!
We started to distrust the scales
from then on. In fact, we didnt
trust anybody. So we went back

"Whom shall I trust?" It said
"Yourself, but not too far." Now
we dont know what to do.
