Professors Completely Mystified By 'Tick Tock' in Student's Head

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Two University authorities were baffled last night about what makes Jack Husband tick.

A 20-year-old student at Southwestern State College in Wethersford. Oklahoma, Husband reported to his draftboard a shortwhile ago and doctors noted that there was a "tick tock" sound in his head.

It had been going on for a number of years, Husband reported, but he had thought everyone "ticket."

Clyde K. M. Kluckhoin, professor of Anthropology, stated that it was "highly unlikely," that this was an evolutionary adaption to the machine age," but he could offer no other explanation.

"I've never come across anything like this in my many years of experience," Dr. Tracy B. Mallory '18, professor of Pathology, revealed last night.

His explanation was that it might possibly be the pulse beat in an artery amplified by hitting against a thin bone in the head.
