Last week Winthrop House's Standish quadrangle witnessed the jamboree of the Polar Bare Club. This organization owes its inception to the scarcity of water a year ago last Christmas at the Mountaineering Club's hut on Mt. Washington.
Nude snow bathing was adopted as a substitute for the morning shower. Evidently the innovation was enthusiastically received, for it led to the immediate formation of the Club--to per petuate snow neptunery.
The recent snowfall inspired last Sunday night's meeting, a spontaneous affair heralded only by the dull thud of cast off shoes dropping on Winthrop floors. Issuing forth into the quadrangle the nude members were soon in the midst of their rites.
When the snow frolic was ended, the Club voted to adjourn to its particular entry only to find the entry door bolted. Appeals to lighted windows were so intensified by the steadily dropping temperature that soon the door was opened from within, and the Polar Bare Club filed inside formulating a program of revenge.

Dr. Haggard believes that his latest experiments will revolutionize America's eating habits.

A sleek, white DeSoto sporting a uniformed driver, a neatly lettered legend "Cambridge Protective Patrol," and an attractive young feminine occupant--has caused considerable speculation around the Square lately. Some had it that the Police Department was undergoing extensive modernization.
Last night the cop on the corner explained it all to us. "It's a private company over on Brattle Street that watches over buildings around here. And the young lady must be the owner's wife," he added.

We note in the Yale News that a portrait is being painted of the first Eli graduate, Jacob Heminway, who received his degree in 1704. With no description of the gentleman in exis-life. Kirby's opinion that Heminway was a "bigoted, self-centered, stern old Puritan" is said to be confirmed by the fact that in later life "he cut off his tence, the artist, Donald Kirby, is "synthesizing" his features from available scraps of information regarding his only daughter without a penny because she had married an Episcopalian."
