“College Days” has a promising title; one expect something really amusing this time. But it isn’t. Here and there one finds a gorgeous bit which proves that Leacock did write it himself, but for the most part these are quite ordinary sketches. The exception is “Idleness, A Song for the Long Vacation”, a nonsense jingle of the very best.
