Professor Packard Refuses To Preserve Student's Oath

Voice Recorder Does Not Consider It Worthy of Immortality

Professor Packard evidently does not consider a student's oath of as much consequence as a teacher's, and has refused to preserve one on his famous records.

One victim of his voice recordings was shoved before the microphone yesterday without being given a chance to read over the script. He got through the part about Acsop's mouse all right, but when he came to the statement that he was to chat informally for a full minute, he lost all control, and a particularly violent and surprised oath escaped him.

The record was hastily run over to see if the oath had registered, and it had, only too clearly, but the Professor declined to preserve the specimen for posterity, and gave it to its creator to take home and play on his own victrola.
