Brothers And Sisters All
It would not be good taste to end the year without telling one Christmas story. Every clever magazine carries a holiday tale, even the "New Yorker." Here is ours; it points out how profoundly cordial is the sentiment of Christmas celebration.
The night of the last college meal before vacation only a scattered few were breaking bread in a House dining hall. There was a strange quietness about the room; the rustle of skirts and the clatter of silverware were the major sounds. Voices seemed hushed and shy. Because of the dearth of students many waitresses stood against the wall in idle talk. Spontaneously, above everything, there burst forth a song. In a moment all the girls were caroling to the diners. Applause rewarded this serenade; but that was not enough. As the remnants of the House were leaving, in a magnificent antiphonal gesture, they sang a carol for the waitresses.
