PLEASE REMOVE YOUR RUB- BERS Everyone should wear rubbers these days--which isn t say~g that everyone does. If you don t wear rubbers you don~t ~eed o read any further., You may feel for us~ but you can t reach us. After plowing through blocks and blocks or as it sometimes seems--miles and miles--of sticky, gooy, grimy mud you finally drag wearily up to the door of the school house, only to be met at m~id door by the Janitor, with his ever-present co,n~and to take off your rubbers! Ill wager that if the janitor were ever awakened by burglars in the house, he would rise up in bed and say, "Take off your rubbers, please!" Gloomfly you wonder why the Janitor doesn't stand at the boys' entrance~boys are worse for mud than girls anyway, but of course you have to obey that command. Or maybe, if you have luck, the janitor will take off the offending rubbers for you. In case your luck is low, you scrape off inches of mud until you find the zip. It ~icks and you have a terrible time. Finally, after s long, hard strug~e, the rubbers are off. The-janitor very obligingly opens the door for you. You stagger up the stairs, carrying the mud- encrusted rubbers gingerly in one hand . You drop them on the floor in the cloak hall and that is where your revenge begins. The ]~nitor has to sweep it up. When school is dismissed every- one goes to the cloak room, puts on her rubbers--boys don't wear 'era. and the mud, as much of it as is still hanging on, comes off on the way down stairs. All rubbers are generally quite clean when their wearers reach the door. So much for the mud; but when there is srg3w on the ground you hear those same three little words, "Remove your rubbers," you won- der why, because the snow is un- doubtedly cleaner than the floor anyway. After thinking it over, you decide that the janitor does- n't want you to go around leaving 41can spots on the floor. Isn't human nature funny? After days and days of grey skies overhead, and snow underfoot comes a day when a rift appears in the somber grey. Pupils perk up and Joyfully sing "Here Comes the SUn," but they forget that the sun reduces the snow to mud--and North Dakota mud is stickier and gaoler and gummier than any r~If-respecting mud has a right to bet After all it doesn't make much differenee---"Please remove your tubbers" Elizabeth Russell.
