They Won’t Be Home Until Morning, Hie!
Oh, we won’t be home until morn-ing! And we didn't get home until Saturday morning. Just in time to eat dinner.
Well—you see it was this way. We had no chains. And that man wouldn't let us cross that bridge at Lindsborg unless we had chains. We could have gone another road, but "Father Daniel" said he wouldn't because he was afraid we would get stranded some place, and he had girls in his car. Besides that, he had no heater. (And it did take those other cars several hours, and we would have gotten rather cold!)
So there was nothing to do but find a place to stay all night. The house mother at the girls' dorm graciously consented to let the girls stay there for the night. (Here’s a tip—Jessie and Dan each know a girl there.)
The girls over at Sweden get to stay out until midnight after game—what a break! The matron said we could too, so off we went to Olson's.
The fellows didn't seem much concerned about where they would spend the night, and devoured chili and sundaes as usual. But you know, those Swede guys are not so bad, for when they heard we were staying all night, they immediately found places for our boys to stay. From all reports "Oxydol" and Shannon had a ripsnorting good time, and Zookie and Pete Van Bu-ren were royally entertained by "Bottle" and Ireland.
We girls slept comfortably on downy beds, and ate breakfast at 10 o’clock at the college cafeteria. (Can you imagine any thing like that?) We got back safely to McPherson—and didn’t have to get out and push the car up any hills. Even though the Swedes are our rivals, we must admit they treated us kindly, and we hope that some time we can return the favor.
C. F. Program Is Given By High School Group Sunday
The Kingdom, the Power and the Glory" was the theme of the regular C. E. program Sunday evening at 6:30 in the College church. A pageant, "Seven Candlesticks of the B. Y. P. D." was presented by the high school group of the C. E.
The characters in the pageant were the Church, Barbara Davis; the B. Y. P. D.. Esther Sherfy; the candle-bearers, Junior Eberly, Lola Murray, Betty Schwalm, Harold Fulkerson, Reba Barngrover, Irma Aing and Elizabeth Mohler.
The candle-bearters represented the ideals upon which young people base their fundamentals for following Christ. The candles represented the Bible, Faith, Prayer, Service, Stewardship, Christian Fellowship and Consecration.
At the introduction of each ideal, an interlude of violin music was played by Ramona Fries, who was accompanied by Lillys Frantz at the organ.
Women’s Council To Give Formal
The time for the formal dinner for Tuesday evening, February 9 has been changed from 6:30 to 6:00. Tickets may now be purchased from Margaret Mesamer for 45 cents. The deadline for purchasing tickets is Friday noon.
Tuesday evening the Council met in the Student Union Room for a discussion of formal dinners. Evelyn Dell led the discussion. Some of the high points mentioned were; the difference between the formal and informal dinner in regards to dress. Invitations, etc. Other points mentioned were the seating arrangement, serving and leaving the table.
Around thirty girls were present at this interesting and helpful discussion.
New York, N. Y., (ACP)—-Plans to make drastic changes in the curricula of freshman and sophomore students at Columbia College have been placed before the entire faculty by the sub-committee on curriculum, which has worked on the course re-shaping project for the past year and one-half.
The sub-committee proposes that a course in humanities, embracing the study of literature, philosophy, music and the fine arts supplant the now-required English A course.
Dean Mohler to Meeting at Emporia
Dean Mohler will go to Emporia this week end for a meeting of the State Council Administration. He will also attend a meeting of the State Schoolboard Association of which he is the treasurer, and a banquet of the State Schoolmasters Club.
Fun, Surprises, and a Night of Hilarity Prophesied On First Attempt
Original Abilities of Students Will Blossom at Program
Did you ever have a "hunch?" Well we have more than a hunch. Its merely this. You will enjoy an evening of pleasant surprises and see your classmates in spectacular informal roles Friday evening at the Amateur Program. Of course, we can’t tell you just what is on the program, but "take a tip." you won’t be disappointed. There will be comedy, music, impersonations, etc. etc.
The audience will be the judge and will choose the winners by applause. Prizes are to be awarded to the three best numbers, and they are prizes well worth your talent. To those who might be bashful or modest in offering their specialties we say you can't afford to pass up this opportunity. Remember, Thursday is the last day to enter.
You will have the opportunity to see the "Major." hear his witty comments, and judge for yourself his discretion in the use of the gong.
It will be an evening of fun and entertainment not offered on the campus before. You'll laugh heartily, applaud rigorously, and maybe boo vociferously should the "Major” forgot to use the gong.
What is suitable for the program. Well, music, both vocal and instrumental, Impersonations, whistling, tricks, stunts and what-have-you. The committee will be glad to hear what you have to offer. Get in touch with it.
So, don’t forget Friday evening at 8:00 o'clock. The small admission charge will be used in the awarding of prizes. Tune in with your presence at the Chapel Studio.
Debators To Hutchinson
McPherson College debators will go to Hutchinson Friday morning to participate in an invitation tournament at the Junior College there. Entrees will be from Kansas, Nebraska and Oklahoma.
McPherson is sending three teams of men and two teams of women. Phillip Davis and Billy Thompson, Addison West and Marvin Ridell, Stephen Stover and Addison Saathoff make up the men’s teams. Lucile Cole and Inez Goughner, Velma Watkins and Yolanda Clark comprise the women's teams.
The debaters will take part in six rounds of debating. Three of these are conventional and the other three are experimental. This will be McPherson's first performance in experimental debating. The team will stay over in Hutchinson and return Saturday afternoon.
Fisher and Crawford Give Recital Sunday
Present Two Sonatas for Violin and Piano at College Chapel
A musical recital was given Sunday afternoon at 4:00 o'clock at the McPherson college chapel. This was the third faculty presentation of the year. The program was presented by Prof. Loren Crawford, violinist and Prof. Nevin W. Fisher, pianist.
Two complete sonatas were played by Professor Fisher and Professor Crawford. The opening number, the Sonata In A. Minor for violin and piano by Robert Schumann was one of the finest poetic works which this composer has written and is very romantic and fiery in character. The second part of the program, the Greig sontat in F Major was written to portray the experience of a composer's youth. In it is evidence of the influence of the sea, wind and a storm tossed vessel.
The program for this recital was one of high musical level and should appeal to McPherson music lovers. The recital lasted one hour.
The program was as follows: Robert Schumann . . Sontat in A Minor, Opus 105 Mit leidenschaftlichen Ausdruck Allegretto Lebhaft
Edvard Greig . . Sonata In F Major, Opus 8
' Allegrio con brio
Allegretto quasi andantino Allegro molto vivace

Large Number of Students Receiving Aid Through Federal Youth Administration
Nearly ten percent of the young men and women attending colleges and universities in the United States this year are earning a part of their expenses through employment on the Student Aid Program of the National Youth Administration. Aubrey Williams, Executive Director, announced today.
Preliminary figures complied from reports of the state directors for December, which are subject to some slight corrections, showed a total of 124,818 young people enrolled on NYA projects in 1,686 colleges and universities in 48 states and the District of Columbia. Recent esti-mates by the U. S. Office of Education place the total college and university enrollment this year at approximately 1,788,000.
Both the number of students receiving aid and the number of institutions participating in the program this year show increases over com-parable dates for 1935. Whereas in November of that year 109, 001 NYA students were listed in 1,602 colleges and universities, there were, in December 1936, 15,817 more students receiving assistance in 84 more colleges and universities.
Of the total number of students receiving aid. 119,583 are undergraduates and 5,235 are graduates. Out of the total of 1,686 participating institutions, 200 are colleges or universities offering master's, doctors, or professional degrees.
Total monthly allocations for college and graduate aid in December were $1,896,143. according to the state directors reports. This was divided $1,770,633 for undergraduate aid and $98, 610 graduate aid, as compared with $1,559,645 and $79,-300 respectively, a year ago November.
Mr. Williams pointed out that the 1,686 institutions of higher learning which has instituted student aid programs this year represent about 98 per cent of all institutions in the county which are eligible for such aid. Eligibility requirements are that the college or university shall be non-profitmaking and tax exempt, which embraces practically all degreegranting schools In the country.
"Such splendid cooperation on the part of the nation's educators.” Mr. Williams added. "Is one of the most encouraging aspects of the program.
It is no secret that the National Youth Administration was regarded with skepticism by some educators when it was established in the sum-mer of 1935. Fears were expressed that it was an ‘opening wedge’ toward ultimate Federal control of the educational system.
Such fears have been allayed completely as the program has de-
veloped. The NYA has not interfered in any way whatever with matters of curricula or administration, and the actual working of the program in each institution has been left almost entirely in the hands of the institution’s own authorities.
The fact that approximately 98 per cent of the accredited colleges and universities in the country have adopted this program as a means of assistance to students of limited means. Is adequate testimony of its value."
Fellows Have A Sample!
Say! you fellows who want sample the girl friend's biscuits and muffins might drop by the foods lab this afternoon, if SHE is taking foods.
And all you boys who wonder whether you're getting enough to eat these days might ask the girls in the nutrition and dietetics class to check up on those calories for you: that is, provided you'll tell them how many teaspoons of butter you eat, how many glasses of milk you drink, and all such similar information. By the way, water doesn’t have calories, so you can drink all you want without fear of getting too much protein, fat or carbohydrates.
S. C. M. Regional Conference To Be Held February 4, 5, and 6 at Kansas State
Student Group To Study Economics Outlook and Difficulties
The Student Christian Movement Regional Economic Conference will be held at Manhattan, Kansas February 5, 6 and 7. The conference plans to deal specifically with farm and agricultural problems which are typical of the Middle West.
This is the chief S. C. M. conference of the Region and a high quality of leadership has been secured. Dr. O. E. Baker, Senior Agricultural Economist in charge of the Population Studies of U. S. Department of Agriculture, will be one of the outstanding speakers of the conference.
On Friday he will speak on the subject of "The Outlook for Rural Youth," on Saturday "Commercial Agriculture and the Concentration of Farm Ownership In the Cities," and "The Population Prospects and Some Agriculture implications.’’ Dr. W. E. Grimes, head of the Economics Department of Kansas State College will also be a guest speaker.
The following problems will no doubt be considered in the conference: the possibility of a peasant farm class, cooperatives in regard to the farmer, agriculture legislature, the farmer’s stake in the world peace program, and the cultural and social life of the farmer. These are all important to the wideawake college student of economics and sociology who cannot afford to be ignorant of the implications of rural life in present conditions.
Further information on the con-ference and transportation facilities can be had from Willard Flaming or Wanda Hoover.
Down With a Thump!
Bumpety, bump, bump. And then a slide across the widest sidewalk on the campus. Yes, sir, Mike does it every time..To see him go down those dormitory steps up-side-down is a scream. That's just like Mike because he always wants to be different. And different he was! Now Lucile and Ira Milton run a close second, but we always feel more or less sorry when two people of their calibre fall that hard, it sometimes leaves bad results.
And these people that window peek! You surely heard about a couple of them the past Saturday night. First there came the Idea to peer in the window of the student union room. Then light and cautious steps headed the peepers up the slanting ice. No sooner had they arrived at their destination than
oops! Frys and Mohlers came down. What a spill! Don’t you crack a smile. But how can we help it when into the student union room tumbled two injured spectators. Bumped beads with swollen marks as large as eggs do tell, you know. My warning is this: Better luck next time (only you’d better wait until this ice has disappeared.)
Senior Class Play Is Chosen
Members of the senior class have chosen as their class play, “The Taming of the Shrew."
A class meeting was held Thursday after pep chapel. Several different possible plays were received by Paul Miller and after much dis-cussion and deep thought the class finally agreed (believe it or not) upon the Shakespearian play.
"The Taming of the Shrew" is one of Shakespeare's most humorous comedies. Even though it was written many years ago it is still modern and you won't stop laughing for a week.
Look for further notices about "The Taming of the Shrew."

This Philosophy of Cooperation
A principle that we have had with us for years yet have never made use of is that of genuine cooperation. We Americans, sons and daughters of pioneers, believe too much in the strength of our own individual capacities to pool our efforts in a common venture. The last several years have taught us, however, that as individuals we can do little to cope with the powerful social, economic, and political forces shaping our lives. Consequently we have turned, as never before, to the method of working together, of cooperation. This movement has been accentuated by the visit of Toyohilo Ka-gawa and by the realization, which has been growing since 1929, that our chaotic economic conditions make such a venture-expedient.
In many areas of our life a power is in control with demands only our consent. This is power over others. Its manifestations are quite obvious, especially in Europe where one man rule is the order of the day. In direct contrast, the philosophy of cooperation says that the only lasting, motivating power is power with It is based not upon consent but upon cooperation. It operates upon the assumption that a number of people working together can solve their problems better than any one of them individually. Not even the consent of the rest of the group is enough for the contributions of each member are also necessary. It is this combined effort that is power with; it is by the use of this combined effort that integration can take place.
Logically this is the only way to settle any problem permanently.
History shows that any settlement that is dictated by one party and grudgingly accepted by the other cannot last. Neither dominance nor submission will settle controversies. It is only by working with others, it is only by utilizing the contributions of each party involved that an enduring, lasting settlement can be made. Thus by the process of integration the seemingly unsalable difficulties are changed into parts that compose the whole.
This philosophy does not merely apply to settling difficulties, it is far more than that; it in a way of life. Cooperation should permeate our entire life and reach even the seemingly insignificant every day things of our existence. This is an important factor that many people fail to realize. They admit that in-ternational and sometimes economic problems can be settled by working with others. But here their reasoning stops; they fail to realize that the ordinary situations which confront us daily also demand this same treatment.
By thus cooperating in the ordinary activities of life we can lay a foundation upon which a greater cooperative ventures can be built. It is only when the citizens of one country have built such a foundation that cooperation between nations can be brought about.
Editor's Note: (This is the first of a series of editorials on cooperation. Subsequent editorials will deal with “Cooperatives and the Economic Problem." "Cooperatives, Labor and Collective Bargaining," "Cooperatives and the Church," and “Cooperation for World Peace.”)
Question: "When entertaining
where does one seat the guest of honor?
Answer: When the guest of honor is a gentleman he is supposed to be seated to the right of the hostess and if the guest of honor is a girl she is seated next to the host.
Question: Does the gentleman seat the girl to his left or right and from which side of the chair is it correct for the girl to be seated?
Answer: The gentleman seats the girl to his right. She sits down from the left side of her chair.
Since many of the girls are more or less formal-dinner minded at present, here are a few suggestions concerning what is proper at a formal dinner.
In the first place the guests at a formal dinner should arrive not more than ten minutes before the hour set for the dinner nor more than five minutes after said hour. The hostess offers her hand to her guests as they arrive. (But remember that when you as a guest go to leave you are supposed to offer your hand to the hostess and tell her you have enjoyed the evening.)
Jewelry unless in keeping with the formal affair is not worn. One might wear a diamond ring or brooch but watches and class rings are definitely poor taste. It is never proper to wear a hat to the table. One does wear gloves to the table at a strictly formal occasion but removes them before beginning the meal.
Girls, 15c will buy you "Good Man-ners for Young Women" by Mary Perin Barker. There is a limited number of books available. Those who are interested should see Dr. Smith.
"Good Manners for Young Women" sets forth in straightforward and thoughtful fashion many of the more common problems of young people in regard to good manners. "It is addressed to the modern young girl and written simply. Such problems as personal appearance, table manners, introductions, invitations, conduct with men and marriage are discussed sanely and wisely." Buy your copy now.

It Isn't So Easy
It isn't so easy to put on a smile
When you’re blue—just as blue as can be:
It isn’t so easy to be kind all the while
When Fate seems to turn against
But if you can smile and be kind through it all.
Though the smile and the kindness be ever so small
You’ll find your reward, my dear friend—you just see.
It isn’t so easy to repay good for ill
To that someone who's done you a wrong;
It isn’t so easy to just bear and keep still
Or go around humming a song
When gossipy tales have been told about you
And you know, oh so well, that they are untrue.
But if you can, my dear friend, if you can, you are strong.

6. Centralize the administration of student loans in the business manager.

other take over counseling of non-athletic extra-curricular activities centralize supervision of such activities.
7. Give students a part in ad-ministration. Have elected representatives on social committee and on disciplinary committee.
8. Remove final authority of discipline from executive officers, and lodge it in a faculty-student committee.
Security Act as Safeguard
The Social Security Act is a forward-looking business-like program to provide certain benefits where they are most urgently needed and to distribute as equitably as possible the cost of providing them.
It is intended to offer safe-guards against the insecurity of modern life in one program through the medium of the Federal Government alone and in the others through cooperative action by the Federal and State governments.
Without attempting to enumerate all the causes of economic dependency, it will be necessary only to mention old age, physical handicaps, including blindness, a poor start in life, as in the case of poverty-reared children, and that by-product of the machine age—-enforced idleness.
If is desirable to analyze the act as a whole and to examine the means of accomplishing the desired results.
The old-age benefits program is a major provision of the act. It is
A program has been handed to the faculty to change the present setup to meet the requirements of the North Central association. These improvements if followed will contribute a great deal toward good feel-ing between the faculty and student body as well as a better organized administration.
1. Remove from curriculum committee the duties of passing on individual cases. Have the faculty determine the policy and the dean carry it out.
2. Personnel committee continue personal advisement during year as
was done in 1935-36.
3. Have Health committee take over larger duties, to include, all those recommended by the N. C.. and give that committee and its chair
designed to forestall the poverty of old age, a common economic ail-ment. It is based on the theory that the Federal Government should provide a regular income for work-ers in their old age, through a universal and systematic plan following insurance and actuarial principles, the benefits taking the form of a life annuity.
This phase of the act is administered solely by the Federal Government for certain obvious reasons. Not only do people move from State to State in the course of a lifetime, but the program comprises a complete cycle, the working life of the individual. In certain other phases of the act, such as unemployment cause and effect cover fairly short periods, and the resulting experience gained under different State laws may prove helpful. But where the life earnings of the worker are involved and determine his retirement income, a Nationwide and uniform system is essential.
Cultural Contest Is Urged To Encourage Talent Of Children and Adults
Philadelphia, Pa.. (ACP)—"Cultural Olympics" for the purpose of discovering and encouraging talent of children and adults in the fields of art and literature are being inaugurated by the University of Pennsyl-vania’s school of education.
The aim of "cultural Olympics" is to promote the cultural interests of people and communities. At present the movement is limited to Philadelphia and its immediate area, but it is hoped that it will eventually become a national trend.
President Gates of the University of Pennsylvania explained the new project more fully:
"In accordance with the first objective, an effort will be made to bring the cultural Olympics to the attention of as many potential competitors as possible by establishing contacts with churches, schools, museums, Institutes, settlement houses, clubs, and other Institutes and organizations which might serve as helpful clearing houses for information concerning the project.
"The second purpose—that of suitably rewarding conspicuous achievement on the part of participants— can be accomplished best, it is felt, by making the awards of such a diameter that they will not be of mere passing significance but will serve as vehicles for the further developments of the cultural talents of their recipients.
"To this end it is hoped that provision may be made whereby a number of these awards will carry with them the privilege of study at various institutions which offer instruction in cultural fields.
"Time and again attention is called to the careers of men and women whose high achievements in the field of music, sculpture, painting, and other branches of the fine arts, were made possible solely by chance.
"Possibly that element of chance never may be eliminated entirely, but upon the extent to which it is minimized through the establishment of systematic agencies for the discovery and encouragement of latent talent wherever it exists, must depend in large measure the cultural progress of society."
Is a World Wide Problem
New York, N. Y. (ACP)—"To avoid the emergency of educated proletariates with the tragedies that have been witnessed in Europe as the direct result of overcrowding in certain professions," is the worldwide problem of organized education, the Carnegie Foundation on the Advancement of Teaching concluded in its latest public report.
Because Italy has recognized the need of the "right education for the right Individual" to preserve a sound social order, says the report, she has reorganized her entire edu-cational system.
"The unrest due to overcrowding in the universities and consequently in the professions was without a doubt a contributory factor to the Nazi revolution." the report continued. The report, formulated by I. L Kandel, Professor of education and Associate in the International Institute, Teachers College, Columbia University, is published as "Bulletin 28; Examinations and Their Substitutes In the United States."

Study Athletic Ills
Foundation to Expose Professionalism in Athletics
New York. N. Y. (ACP)—In a meeting of the board of trustees of the Carnegie Foundation, which turned into "a sort of confessional for college president," the trustees’ executive committee was charged with the duty of deciding whether the foundation will undertake another exposure of professionalism and related ills in the operation of the ath-letic systems in the colleges of the U. S.
Franklin A. Vanderlip, treasurer of the board, explained the issue: ”We felt that the college athletic situation is more reprehensible than ever before."
He said that college officials felt the problem needed pressure from outside. “The college presidents made it plain that the thing is too big for them. Some amazing things were said. One president told of bets of more than $500,000 on a single football game. The time will come when one of these games will be thrown."
"Just as in a horse race?" he was asked.
“Yea." he answered. "I feel very strongly about it,"
The foundation recently received a request from the National Association of State Universities for a supplementary study of intercollegiate athletics. Howard J. Savage, secretary of the board, said that the request would normally be brought up at the January executive meeting. Mr. Savage took active part in the survey and reports seven years ago that charges about one in seven athletes in 130 colleges was subsidized.

Frank Still Subject Of Talk in Madison
Displays Wit in Answering Toast of Professor Cool
(By Associated Collegiate Press)
Madisonians are still swapping stories about Glenn Frank's battle last month to retain the presidency of the University of Wisconsin, and the best is the one about Dr. Frank at the banquet for state employees.
Frank, Gov. Philip La Follette and two others were scheduled to speak. But Gov. La Follette was unable to attend because of illness, so Prof. C. D. Cool, the wittiest toastmaster in Madison, voiced the usual regrets.
Under the circumstances he said he was forced to change his planned reference to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse to that of the Three Musketeers.
When Dr. Frank stood up to speak, he was more or less glad that the governor was absent, for "If we were introduced as the Four Horsemen, I would probably have been selected us Famine."

Freddy Polishes the Apple To Girl Friend
February 3, 1937
Here is another letter from your little Freddie with some great news. I received my exam and semester grades today. I got "F" in everything which, as I have explained before, means FINE. I was the only one in my class to achieve this distinction.
Now here is the good news— the prexy called me into his office the day after exams. The dean was also there, and we had a nice long talk about my scholastic standing. They told me that after much deliberation during which time my grades, conduct, and other points pertinent to my case had been duly considered, the board of trustees and other powers that be had decided that it would be unnecssary for me to continue my college work. This I considered a distinct compliment. Nevertheless, I protested vehemently at first, but as they became more insistent that I had no use for further education, the vigor of my demurrers gradually weakened and I finally acquiesced.
Therefore, hence, consequently, etc.. I shall be back in Toad Hunter Holler ’ere another week has elapsed. I haven’t written to the folks yet; so please, Marian, don't say anything about this to them. I think it will be much better for me to explain it personally.
For a long time I have been and still am "that way” about you, and this timely termination of my education offers the opportunity for me to tell you a great many things I have been wishing to say. Furthermore, I now have the distinct ad-vantage of vocalizing my appeals rather than depending on the dubious effectiveness of ink and paper.
With a single word you can raise my soul to exalted heights—Darling,
I can hardly wait—

Score of 42 to 24 Piled Up By Canines; Never Seriously Threatened by Opponents.
The McPherson Bulldogs walloped Sterling College Tuesday night by a score of 42 to 24. It was a fast game with the Canines getting in close for many setups. McPherson was having good luck on making goals, and all the regulars scored at least five points.
Sterling scored first, but soon the Bulldogs began to click and had acquired a 12 to 2 lead before the opposition again scored. Midway in the first half, McPherson was ahead 20 to 10 and increased the margin to 27 to 10 at the half.

McPherson Seconds Win
Easily From Bethany Swedes
McPherson College won a Kansas Conference game from its ancient collegiate enemy, the Bethany Swedes, Friday night by a 27 to 19 score. It was a fast game with plenty of bodily contact involved.
The Swedes jumped into an early lead which they held until a few long field goals started the game minutes before the half ended. Three and Bethany was off to a six-point lead. The Bulldogs slowly began to overtake the Swedes and finally passed them late in the first period. A field goal by Chet Johnston gave McPherson a 12 to 10 advantage.
The Canines spent the remainder of the game extending the margin, slowly pulling away from the Swedes. Bethany made one move midway in the second period when they ap-proached to within one point of the Bulldogs. The Swedes rallied from
a12 to 19 score to bring the count to 18 to 19.. From then on they were held to only one point while the Bulldogs collected eight.
Chet Johnston was high scorer of the game with nine points. Bethany’s high scorer was Maupin who made seven points.
The box score:
Ottawa Has Had Three Setbacks at the Hands of the Conference Leaders
Tomorrow night the Bulldogs of McPherson college will tangle with the Ottawa Braves in another Kansas Conference tilt. A win for the Bulldogs would mean a substantial boost in the conference rating, while a loss would drop the Canines to a tie with the Braves.
Although the Baptists have lost three conference games, they have a team that will make the Bulldogs show plenty of fight in order to win. Ottawa's three setbacks have been at the hands of the conference lead-ers. The three-point defeat by Kansas Wesleyan was a hard one to take, for the score was tied with only a few minutes to play. Coach Godlove has a young team, with lots of zip and speed, that will soon be knocking off the championship contenders.
Coach Selves, now that the Sterling game is over, has begun to drill the squad in preparation for the tussle with the Braves. A squad of twenty is working out daily under his direction. Dave McGill, regular guard, has recovered from sickness, and will probably see some action tomorrow night. The rest of the squad is in good condition and are aiming to stop the Braves.

Intramural Teams Need Support
From all observation it seems that the intramural basketball has had very little attention, from many parts of the sport loving fans on the
campus with the exception of the
two teams and three girls making up the cheering section. The teams are (not the girls) Miller's and Fry's. Come out and give your team some support.

The high scorers of the intramural games are Letkeman with 22 points and Bredfeldt with 13.
