"Put this in your pipe and smoke it." "Comet" is one of the few students who finds so much solace in his jimmy pipe that he has to carry two in his pockets to keep the supply equal to the demand. He is an authority on "Cassidisms" and so far as we know he has only one fault--he HAS to go to Versailles EVERY Saturday and Sunday. Why? No one knows.

-The Kentuckian, 1915
