"Say, professor," I said as I sat sipping tea with my friend Professor Hopanwiggle, "that stunt that St. Louis man pulled when he had a couple of lions turned loose on an island so he and his friends could have a lion hunt, sounds like one of your stunts." "Yes," replied the prof, "only I did mine on a larger scale." "Tell me about it." I pleaded, sensing another one of the famous Hopanwiggle yams. "Well," began the professor, "I have always felt the urge to hunt big game every since I won the rat catching contest for the championship of Cashaw Corners when I was a kid. "Last year, I got a chance to buy the menagerie of a standard circus quite cheaply. It included 30 tigers, 10 elephants, 7 giraffes, 13 snakes, and 55 lions. "Well, I had the cages brought to my 100 acre island, and invited a few of my best friends for the hunt. I had barbecue pits dug so we could have some goood barbecued lion. "Well, sir, I had things done up right. Everything pointed to a gala day. The weather looked fair, and things looked promising.

I had heard that the moss grew only on a certain side of the trees, but there was no moss. "I was plodding on my way, not knowing in which direction I was going, when I heard a terrific roar. I halted, but did not hear the noise Continued on page 3 22 H. J. C. Students On Honor Roll A list of honor students has just been compiled and released by Dean N. K. Dupre.
