Profs Classified Spicy,
Skimmers, Killers-Egad!
"All professors can be divided
into classes." declares the Emory
Wheel, student newspaper of Em
ory University, Atlanta. and lists
the following:
"1. The killer type: He wants
to kill off the lower third of the
class and thinks the best way is by
"2. The spicy type. He has a
lot of cheek and picnty of tongue
to put in it. His lectures kick up
intellectual sparks out of the aca
demic flint.
"3. The skimmer type. The
surfacing in his courses is fine.
But the foundation is weak.
"4. The fatherly type. He is
the unexpected father, always giv
ing pop examinations.
`5. The hard rock type. You
We, The Women—
Today Is THE Day!
Start Running, Men
Today is 'THE day! Not only is
Penn State going to beat Syracuse,
but I am going to beat you. For
today is the day to get out your
track shoes and start running. It's
Sadie Hawkin's Day and I want
you 'for my Li'l Abner.
Today the dating code will suf
fer a nervous breakdown with all
the coeds doing the escorting. In
stead of your sending me a corsage,
your's will arrive in the conven
tional cellophane wrapper. Do you
think radishes, will look all right
with your gray suit? And how
about a dinner and movie date be
fore the Spinster Skip? I'll be
around at six.
Today I am going to prove I
really appreciate all the good times
we have had together. •
.-Tonight you can give me your
shaving kit to carry. And you can
keep me waiting—hut for long,
please. I will try to be as good
natured as you always are about
stuffing your pockets with a com
pact, lipstick, and comb. And I'll
endeavor to wait without tapping
my foot.
You mad• not be tall, dark, and
handsome. or even a medium, light,
and able-to-get-by-in -a- is r-o w d

"Catch-of-the-Campus" but you
are still my ideal man.

he wouldn't even give the United

"6. The uh-mar. type. He
doesn't know any punctuation ex
cept "uhs." For vamety he throws
in a "but uh" now and then.
"7. The cocktail type. He whets
your intellectual appetite. He
knows a great deal but doesn't
try to make everybody realize it.
"3. The nomad type. Like the
nomad of the dean t he loves to
wander and what he wanders over
is dry as the desert."
Could Penn State professors be
classified among these aforemen
tioned types? We wonder.
