To Make a Squash

An INVESTMENT BANKER brought his son to the president of a college, and expressed his desire that the boy take a shorter course than the regular one.

"My son can never take all those studies. He wants to get through more quickly. Can't you arrange it for him?," asked the investment banker.

"Oh, yes," replied the president. "He can take a short course. It all depends on what you want to make of him. When God wants to make an oak he takes a hundred years, but he takes only two months to make a squash."
