POST SCRIPT ' Page Three POST SCRIBBLES by Martin C. Towne They Don’t Complain On October 26, 1945, I wrote to the University of the Philippines in (Manila, regarding courses of study. Their answer came but a short time later. Colleges of Liberal Arts, Law, Engineering, Pharmacy, Med­ icine, Veterinary Science, Educa­ tion, Agriculture, Dentistry and Forestry were explained, and their curricula described in some detail. However, the following message was attached: “Dear Sir: Almost all the building of the University of the Philippines located in the city of Manila were destroyed during the battle for the liberation of this city in February, 1945. Some of these buildings, however are now (after almost complete restoration) being used as class rooms and laboratories for most of the various colleges. The college of Agriculture and the School of Forestry are holding their classes in Los Banos, Laguna, about 70 kms. from this city. Our Conservatory of Music, School of Fine Arts and the College of Busi­ ness Administration will be unable tc resume their classes this year due to the lack of necessary facilities.\ On October 20th of this year, the University opened with an enroll­ ment of 3538. Only a small per­ centage of the total enrollment of students is able to commute. The others cleared the debris from the basements and the cellars of the still almost completely demolished building-s on the campus and have made their own dormitories. Hous­ ing such as this, plus the disease and squalor which still exist in the city, is hardly the atmosphere for conscientious work. Nevertheless, this is the only comment the Presi­ dent of the University was able to make: I’ve never before witnessed such an insanely grasping group of young people in respect to educa­ tion. Every odd is against them; they have every reason to be dis­ couraged and leave; but, not a one has complained. All work so far, in all classes, can definitely be de­ fined as “Excellent’.” REMINISCENCES Reminiscences of my heart Escape the prison of my mind; To shut the door of Memory’s wrath Takes fortitude and grit, I find. — Florence Perez An embarrassed game warden thought he had some future prison­ er when he overheard a confidential conversation near Dorm II. One fel­ low was talking about the three bucks he shot, and another was asking about his doe, but it turned out to be a game of crap.

There was the egotistical nurse who always deducted two degrees from her patient’s temperature reading, to allow for her personal­ ity.
