The following poem was suggested by Maxine Klass-Hoffman:


Maybe it was an Englishman or an Australian
Who was first to call a man a "bloke,"
But historians have no idea as to
Who was first to call loose paper "broke."
It may have been Brian Donkin who worked on the first fourdrinier;
But, whoever he was, he invented a word that most papermakers fear.

If you think about it long and hard,
I am sure that you will agree
That "broke" is the most appropriate word in all of history.
Long ago, it meant only that paper that resulted at a machine break,
But now it means any and all paper the customer will not take.
The best thing to do with broke is to relay it into a beater,

But, too much can cause the remade paper to be an awful lot weaker.
This can cause more breaks to occur
In subsequent operations;
And, if that cycle continues very long,
You will soon be eligible
For unemployment compensations.

- Papermill Poems and Ballads; Francis E. Schiller, 1985

The "Calender of Events" shows when the on-campus sessions take place and the expected subject matter for each day. Students can expect the class to get either "behind" or "ahead" of the plan, depending on what else we do (student presentations, etc.)
