John  Post,  Youthful  Member  of 

Arctic  Expedition,  to  Address 

College  Club  Meeting 

A new  corner  of  the  globe  is  to  be 
described  at  the  next  meeting  of  the 
College  Club.  March  2,  with  a lecture 
about  the  cold  arctic  north.  Last  month 
the  burning  sun  of  India  was  brought 
before  us  by  the  Hindu  student,  John 
Arron,  while  this  time  the  entertainer 
will  be  John  Post,  a sophomore  at  the 
University  of  Chicago.  The  talk  will 
he  woven  around  the  experiences  of 
this  young  man  as  lie  traveled  last 
summer  with  one  of  the  famous  Mac- 
Millan Research  Expeditions.  Although 
the  Arctic  is  a remote  part  of  the 
world,  this  lecture  ought  to  be  very 

Three  years  ago  another  young 
friend  of  Mr.  MacMillan  begged  to  be 
allowed  to  accompany  the  party  on 
its  northward  trip,  but  the  hardy  old 
voyager  was  slow  to  give  his  consent. 

The  boy  was  only  fifteen  years  of  age 
and  still  at  High  School.  He  agreed, 
however,  that  if  the  lad  proved  to  be 
anything  hut  a nuisance  by  the  time 
they  reached  New  Foundland,  the  last 
stopping  place,  he  would  let  him  con- 
tinue. The  boy's  pluck  and  industry 
not  only  won  for  him  permission  to 
continue,  but  it  influenced  Mr.  Mac- 
Millan to  take  other  young  lads  with 

Thus  it  was  that  last  summer  John 
Post  was  one  of  the  four  boys  chosen 
to  accompany  the  expedition  of  that 
year.  He  is  the  son  of  the  world- 
known  heart  specialist,  Dr.  Wilbur 
Post.  Because  of  his  youth,  and  the 
fact  that  he  is  a student  in  the  early 
college  years,  as  we  are,  he  will  with- 
out a doubt  be  very  interesting.  His 
lecture  is  to  be  illustrated  with  motion 


Girls  Made  Higher  Averages 
Than  Boys  in  Class  Room 
Work  Last  Semester 

t scholastic  averages  of  the  stu- 

Bs  of  J.J.C.  arc  now  computed  with 
result  that  seventeen,  whose  av- 
igc  grades  are  90  or  above,  will  be 
the  Honor  Roll.-  Of  these, 
are  second  year  students, 

The  sophomore  honor  roll  is  repre- 
sented by  girls  only,  all  enrolled  in 
the  teachers'  course.  This  bids  well 
for  the  teaching  profession,  hut  it 
should  not  interfere  with  the  boys  mak- 
ing a name  for  themselves  too. 

Among  the  first  year  students,  there 
arc  five  boys  on  the  Roll  of  Honor, 
two  of  them  being  junior  engineers.  It 
is  not  an  easy  matter  to  make  these 
■'V-I)  grades,  and,  therefore,  all  who 
earn  lllcnl  arc  well-entitled  to  the  high 
esteem  that  goes  with  them.  The 
Joliet  Junior  College  is  widely  known 
for  its  ''stiff"  courses  and  for  that 
reason,  high  grades  are  hard  to  attain. 

J.J.C.  hereby  pays  honor  to  these 
people.  They  rank  in  the  following

Concordia  with  Conference 
Championship  as  Objective 

One  hundred  and  seventy-five  new 
books  have  been  placed  on  the  shelves 
of  the  Junior  College  library  within 
the  last  three  months.  Most  of  the 
additions  have  been  acquired  through 
purchase;  however,  a few  have  been 
acquired  through  gifts. 

Mr.  Maue,  Superintendent  of  the 
Public  Schools  of  Will  County,  gave 
the  library  several  valuable  books  from 
the  Illinois  State  Historical  library. 
They  are  as  follows : "Governor  Ed- 
ward Coles,"  edited  by  C.  W.  Alvord; 
"Trade  and  Politics  1767-1769,"  edited 
by  C.  W.  Alvord ; "Laws  of  the  North- 
west Territory,"  edited  by  T.  C.  Pease; 
"George  Rodger  Clark  Papers,"  edited 
by  J-  A.  James;  and  "Diary  of  Orville 
Hickman  Browning,"  edited  by  T C. 
Pease  and  J.  G.  Randall; 

School  Methods,"  by  Kitter  and 
worth,  and  "Country

Six  hundred  Junior  College  students 
and  High  School  freshmen  sat  in  front 
of  the  camera  last  Monday  as  pictures 
were  taken  by  the  Harrington  Studio, 
to  be  used  in  the  high  school  and  col- 
lege files.  This  is  the  first  time  the 
collegians  have  had  pictures  taken  for 
this  purpose,  although  high  school 
students  have  been  having  theirs  taken 

According  to  Mr.  R.  R.  Robinson, 
personnel  director,  there  are  only 
about  three  other  high  schools  in  the 
state  who  use  pictures  in 
ords,  hut  colleges 

The  J.J.C.  basketball  team,  probably 
the  best  that  ever  represented  the 
Purple  and  White,  will  go  into  action 
tomorrow  night  against  Concordia  col- 
lege in  the  final  Northern  Illinois  Jun- 
ior College  conference  game  of  the 
season.  The  game  is  to  be  played  on 
the  Joliet  high  school  floor  and  every 
student  in  the  college  is  expected  to 

Undefeated  in  Conference 

The  Joliet  collegians,  with  a perfect 
record  of  9 victories  in  the  Is^r.c, 
will  attempt  to  cop  Number  10  tomor- 
row night,  thus  assuring  themselves  of 
at  least  a tie  for  the  conference  cham- 
pionship. Harvey  is  also  undefeated, 
hut  its  conference  season  will  not  be 
terminated  until  next  week.  '• 

Joliet  will  probably  have  to  carr.  its 
tenth  victory  by  hard  work  if  it  ex- 
pects to  win  from  Concordia  tomorrow 
evening,  for  altho  the  Concordia  cagcrs 
arc  lagging  far  behind  in  the  confer- 
ence race,  they  always  manage  to  put 
up  an  aggressive  battle,  regardless  of 
the  score.  In  the  first  meeting  of  the

All  of  the  girls  seem  to  ignore  the 
trait  or  whatever  it  is  in  a fellow  that

Most  of  the  girls  wanting  their  ideal 
to  have  a cheerful  disposition  at  all

From  the  number  of  girls  who  want 
their  ideal  to  be  a good  dancer,  we  de- 
duct that  it's  better  to  have  your  abil- 
ity concentrated  in  your  feet  rather 
than  your  head.  Is  that  why  good 
dancers  have  big  feet? 

If  there  ever  was  a fellow  with  the 
qualifications  our  co-eds  want  they'd 
never  get  him  anyway.  Not  that  they 
don't  possess  the  necessary  charms  to 
entice  such  a fellow,  oh  my  no.  But 
he'd  probably  go  to  some  museum. 

A fellow  is  usually  satisfied  with  a 
girl  just  like  his  mother,  but  a girl 

Understand  we’re  not  criticising  the 
girls  selections,  for  they  sure  know 
what  they  want,  and  it  was  mighty 
nice  of  them  to  let  us  know.  The  only 
hope  for  some  of  us  fellows  now  is  to 
have  our  faces  lifted  (and  what  a lift  in 
some  cases)  or  go  to  Turkey  where  the 
women  are  veiled  and  can’t  sec  what 
they're  getting. 

Be  it  as  it  may,  when  better  men  are 
built ; J.  J.  C.  co-eds  will  design  them. 


to  the  question,  "What  qualities  do 
you  admire  in  a girl?"  that  the  boys 
of  J.J.C.  are  just  as  desirous  of  per- 
fection in  the  disturbing  sex  as  it  is 
of  the  same  quality  in  boys. 

Starting  with  a hardened  old  bach- 
elor (that's  Tom  Camp's  designation 
of  himself),  we  find  that  the  girl  who'd 
probably  make  him  mend  his  ways 
would  be  modern,  unassuming,  un- 
sophisticated, would  have  good  poise 
and  not  too  many  fellows  on  her 
string.  And  it  might  be  added,  al- 
though Tom  doesn't  express  a prefer- 
ence, that  most  gentlemen  prefer 

Owen  McBride  sums  up  the  quali- 
ties he  likes  very  briefly.  He  says,  "I 
like  a girl  who  is  good  looking,  pre- 
ferably blonde,  who  can  be  true-  to 
one  fellow."  That  last  qualification  is 
the  one  which  will  doom  Owen  to 
disappointment.  He  should  have  found 
that  out  by  now.  But,  girls,  he's  a 
gentleman.  Oh,  yes,  he's  a gentleman; 
he  prefers  blondes. 

Ernie  Cohenour  presents  another 
Picture  of  an,  as  yet,  undisillusioned 
youth.  "I  admire  a girl  who  has  a 
pleasing  personality,  charm,  and  good 
habits.  She  should  be  attractive,  neat 
appearing,  and  good  looking.  Most  of 
all  she  should  not  be  conceited,"  he 
says.  He,  like  McBride,  tacks  a pro- 
vision to  his  answer  that  assures  a 
fruitless  quest. 

It  would  seem  that  Roger  Palmerton 
in  a bit  less  hard  to  please  for  lie  says, 

"I  admire  the  girl  who  is  not  the  least 
bit  bashful  and  can  talk  a great  deal. 
She  must  be  nice,  but  not  angelic.".... 
The  last  trait  is  fairly  .common  and  the 
first  tw6,  as  everyone  knows,  are  the 
prime  characteristics  of  the  sex.  Pal- 
merton  adds  a bitter  addendum,  "The 
most  undesirable  trait  a girl  can  have 
is  high  headedness  or  snobbishness ; 
the  girls  of  J.C.  are  twice  blessed  with 

"The  most  admirable  characteristic 
a girl  can  have  is  sincerity.  If  she  is 
sincere,  and  thus  original,  she  will 
stand  out  in  any  group.  She  should 
live  up  to  her  ideals;  she  should  know 
the  meaning  of  love;  and  she  should 
be  beautiful  so  as  to  make  one  thrill 
with  the  knowledge  of  her  beauty. 
Last,  she  should  have  read  some  few 
good  books."  Thus  Rae  Shannon 
speaks  from  the  vast  knowledge  gain- 
ed from  long  experience.  One  knows 
he  is  experienced  because  of  his  inti- 
mation that  sincerity  is  originality. 

Perhaps  the  few  words  of  warning 
herein  contained  may  fall  upon  deaf 
ears,  but  it  is  the  earnest  desire  to 
prepare  these  young  men  for  disillu- 
sionment, that  prompted  them.

By  Edwin  Henderson 

Ralph  Garner  was  nineteen.  He  was 
also  tall  and  good  looking  in  his  blonde, 
serious  way.  But  he  was  inclined,  if 
anything,  to  take  things  too  seriously, 
himself  included.  His  parents  being 
of  the  "comfortably  fixed"  middlc 
class,  he  led  the  quite  average  com- 
monplace life  of  middle  class  nineteen. 
Just  now,  as  he  stood  at  the  hair -Joor, 
neat  in  blue  topcoat  and  grey  felt,  ■a 
furrowed  brow  and  hot.  resentful  eyes 
belied  this  placid  existence.  He  slam- 
med the  front  door  behind  him  with 
just  the  proper  amount  of  bang,  and 
stepped  off  briskly  in  the  direction  of 
her  house.  It  surely  would  be  a relief 
to  talk  with  someone  who  could  un- 
derstand and  sympathize,  after  being 
treated  like  a kid  and  bossed  around 
all  day  at  home.  Wouldn't  even  let 
him  have  the  car  that  one  night  out 
of  the  week.  The  Joneses  might  come 
over  and  they'd  probably  want  to  go 
somewhere.  Good  night ! As  if  the 

there  was  a bright  side  to  even  not 
getting  the  car.  Maybe  he’d  get  a 
chance  to  say  that  which  had  been 
trembling  on  unpractised  lips  for  near- 
ly a month  now.  Of  course  .he. -had 
kissed  her  once  or  twice  during  their 
ten  months  of  friendship,  but  he  had 
not  vet  received  the  truly  passionate 
confession  of  love  he  longed  for. 

It  was  well  on  toward  eleven  before 
the  opportunity  presented  itself.  Con- 
versation had  run  the  gamut,  from 
weather  to  school  gossip  and  back 
again,  when  Lucy  said  suddenly,  "You 
will  be  going  to  work  next  fall,  won't 

"You  bet  I will,"  came  the  fervent 
reply.  “I'll  have  my  own  money,  my 
own  car,  and  my  own  time.  Gee.  it'll 
be  great.  If  only—,"  and  here  his 
voice  took  on  a new  note  of  huskiness, 
"if  only  I could  feel  that  you  would 
be  waiting  for  me  always  and  always. 
Do  you— do  you  love  me  enough  for 
that — dearest?” 

For  the  briefest  possible  moment  her 
long  sweeping  lashes  flicked  her  cheek. 
And  then,  lifting  her  face  to  his,  her 
beautiful  brown  eyes  so  full  of  under- 
standing and  sympathy,  she  said  sweet- 
ly. "But,  Ralph  dear,  we’re  just  kids." 




On  February  20,  the  Junior  College 
basketball  team  bung  up  its  ninth  con- 
secutive conference  victory  by  beating 
Morton  Junior  College  on  the  oppo- 
nent's floor  to  the  tune  of  39-28.  With 
confidence  gained  from  a six  point  lead 
obtained  at.  the  half,  the  Joliet  team 
proceeded  to  roll  up  a score  for  them- 
selves. In  a previous  encounter  this 
season  Joliet  beat  the  Morton  team

Probably  when  most  people  see  the 
words  "The  Rehabilitation  Act"  they 
have  no  idea  as  to  what  it  means.  In 
the  first  place  it  is  a law  in  the  state 
of  Illinois.  In  the  second  place  it  is 
a very  beneficial  law.  It  concerns  the 
welfare  of  a distinct  class  of  people, 
the  crippled  and  disabled.  This  law 
is  one  created  to  make  it  possible  for 
crippled  and  disabled  people  to  go  to 
school  and  make  something  of  them- 
selves. It  provides  books,  tuition,  and 
supplies  for  the  disabled  boy  or  girl 
of  age  and
