FOLLOWING the lead of women participants at a meeting at Vassar during the winter who tore off their silk stocking in a protest against the use of Japanese goods, a group of Seniors have started a petition asking that the Class Day Committee abandon the use of Japanese lanterns, which have always been used at the festivities on Class Day.

A novice to the intricacies of the bowels of Widener Library had a thrilling time Saturday morning when he tried to keep an appointment with a professor on the fourth floor. According to his story he went into the stacks first. Finding only the low 400's there, he went upstairs, and there found the 500's. Downstairs again, he weaved through the rows of books until he found himself standing face to face with the door of the office he was looking for, except that there was a sturdy iron fence in between.

The doors seemed to be locked, so he made his way down to the first floor, where he found himself at an impasse with a series of bound volumes of the New York Herald Tribune. So he wended, or wound, his way back up the four flights, out the delivery desk, and down to the main floor again, and found the elevator by the process of elimination and antagonization, being then 20 minutes late.

The elevator was in use, so he walked up one flight. On the second floor the red light went out so he pushed the button and the machine started up again, but just as he was about to open the door it started up a second time. Someone above had beat him to it. But little did either of them know that the professor who had decided not to wait and was trying to get out was still imprisoned in the elevator. The student found that out when he craftily pulled open the door as the elevator went down past the second floor, to find this professor at violent odds with the other innocent soul who had given him his round trip. There followed a united front of black looks directed against the new intruder.

"Embarrassing situation number 9863," summed up the victim of this tale.
