College

1  
On the sunkist slopes of
the Pacific, where land 
and water meet - -
     California.

2
High School Graduation
Day, where the next step
is either go to college
    or go to work.

3
A few drops of rain couldn't 
dampen a mother's enthusiasm
on her son's Graduation Day.

4
Mary Haynes - winner of
every popularity contest
in which the boys were 
   allowed to vote.

5
Jeff Brown - Star athlete,
who believed so much in
exercise that he made
many a girl walk home.

6
"I didn't think you would
call for me in the rain.
I'm sorry you are all wet."

7
"Young man, it's time
you graduated. You've
been here seven years."

8
"I know you are going 
to be as popular at 
Clayton College as you
     were here."

9
"It is my pleasure to
present this diploma
to our most brilliant 
     scholar."

10
"- and your scholastic
record richly merits this
      honor medal."

11
"Ronald will now speak on 
the 'Curse of Athletics'."

12
"The secret of getting a 
medal like mine is - -
  books not sports."

13
"The student who wastes 
his time on athletics
rather than study shows 
   only ignorance."

14
"Future generations depend
upon brains and not upon
jumping the discus or
hurdling the javelin."

15
"What have Ty Ruth or
Babe Dempsey done for
      Science?"

16
"Where would I be 
without my books?"

17
"Your speech was ridiculous.
Anyone prefers an athlete
to a weak-knee'd, teachers'
           pet."

18
"When you change your 
mind about athletics,
then I'll change my mind 
      about you."

19
"Mary is going to enter
Clayton ... I wish I could
           go."

20
"I'm afraid we can't 
  afford it, dear."

21
"I can work my way 
through. Other boys
        do."

22
So the following term,
Ronald arrived at Clay-
ton, and was met by ...

23
"I need another clerk as 
     good as he is."

24
"You can commence 
    tomorrow."

25
"Well, if it isn't the
   student prince."

26
"I am Dean Edwards.
Your principal writes
me what an excellent 
 student you are."

27
"A boy like you can make
this athlete-infested col-
lege a seat of learning 
      once more."

28
"You boys will do well to
  follow the example of
   this young scholar."

29
   Sunday found Ronald
taking "fizzical" exercise.

30
"You play third base for 
   the second team."

31
"You forced two men out
 and you're out too."

32
"Bring me something 
you can't stick your 
     thumb in."

33
Clayton's wonder track 
team training for the
intercollegiate meet.

34
"I admire his spirit. At
  least, he's trying."

35
"Don't get too interested in
that campus clown. You're
supposed to be going with
           me."

36
"You take an awful lot
     for granted."

37
"Attaboy, you made 
 a hole in one."

38
A call to the Dean's 
office meant only one 
       thing -

       GRIEF

39
"You have been a miserable 
failure in all your studies
and I know the reason why."

40
"I took up athletics
because the girl I love
thinks I'm a weakling."

41
"I love her and would 
do anything to please 
         her."

42
"I understand, my boy. The
same thing happened to me,
but I was stubborn. That's
  why I'm a bachelor."

43
"Here's a list of the
men eligible for the
    rowing crew."

44
"Coach, I'd like to have 
you make this young 
man coxswain of the 
       crew."

45
"His size and weight 
are perfect and he 
    has brains."

46
"My request is final."

47
"Clayton can't lose the
boat race now. I've
just been appointed the
      'Coaxer'."

48
"Boys, get out the smelling 
salts - - Little Lord
Fauntleroy is your new
       coxswain."

49
"It's the Dean's orders.
He'll be in that race
       unless -"

50
"- unless something 
happens to the poor 
        boy."

51
The day of the race.

52
"Hey, coach - nothing
has happened to Mama's
         boy!"

53
"Don't worry - you're
coxswain. Give him
this and he'll wake up
just in time for the
  football season."

54
"Please leave! If you were
seen in my room it would
mean expulsion for me!"

55
"That's just what I want.
I was expelled this
morning and thought I
would like to take you
       with me."

56
"I'm going to stay here until
we are discovered - - then
you might change your 
mind about marrying me."

57
"Boys, we've got to win!
If we don't, rowing will
be a thing of the past
     at Clayton!"

58
"Is Ronald our coxswain
        to-day?"

59
"Certainly not. I've taken
care of that pest in a
        big way."

60
The rival crew, ready for
  their most important 
   race of the year.

61
"Go on, they are waiting 
for you. They've just 
  been kidding me."

62
"Maybe it's halitosis -
Four out of five have it."

63
"Go get a boat with
 a strong bottom."

64
"Ready all!"

65
"Hurry - Jeff has me
 locked here in my 
  room, and he -"

66
"Young lady, do you know
   what this means?"

67
"Yes - it means we 
 are going to be 
     married."
