"A Rag, a Bone, and a Hank of Hair"

"A Rag, a Bone, and a Hank of Hair"

Dear Sir,

At Tournament the Lincoln male is confronted in force by that lacking on his home campus, the Varsity female. What strange sights greet his starved eyes. A man from Mars might conclude that there were three sexes on this planet if he viewed these strangely garbed creatures. Why should a girl appear at a social function in black tights, dark glasses, and dirty trailing scarf? Why should her hair resemble tangled seaweed? Are these beats, rebelling against society, or are they Amazon Communists proclaiming their equality with the male. DO they feel inadequate and wish to draw attention to themselves or are they just too slovenly and lazy to wash their faces, and comb their hair?

It is possible that beneath their sloppy jerseys and tangled hair good looks and figures are concealed. Why can't a girl dress and look like a girl instead of a zombie? Let's face it I'm a square. I just don't "dig their drift."

Of course they are not all like that, so let us be thankful.

Yours etc.,
