The most successful grade was to be given an "hour off" Friday afternoon. Each side was to keep its number a "profound secret" so that a high degree of enthusiasm could be maintained throughout. The children worked in this dime race with more energy than can easily be imagined• Early in the game some one surmised that the seventh grade was not "cashing in" very frequently, then the vigilant opponents began to double force. The seventh grade be- gan to lose courage, and as their bravery began to wane, their case be- cams hopeless• Then it was that the real struggle began. The "wee' sixth graders *co run against the "big" eighth graders. Bu,t there was no time to questionthe difference in size, age, etc.--the fight was on, and for their class's honor and for the free hour, they had to work. No question was of more moment than "Who's ahead?" But the question was 'not answered till the score was read aloud at 2:15.

He is one of the best liked students at the sehooI, stands high in his classes and holds the respect of his professors. His selection is a popular one. Walsh who was selected as sub- captain is- also a sterling player. An all-state fuIlback last year, he was de- prived of that honor this year through illness, and is without a doubt one of the best fullbacks in the entire state. He. ~ .also very well liked ~t the col- lege both by students and faculty and is very popular among the football fans of the city and state. His selec- tion is also one which won commen- dation err alI sides. Both Walsh and Heslin have one more year to play at the college and theft work next year will be watched with interest. Both young men are members of practically all of the so- cieties at the college, Walsh being also president of the present junior class "SCANLANISMS" By P. F. Scanlan, Manasiaf Editor of the Tablet, Brooklyn. Late last Saturday afternoon a well attired and polite gentleman rang our door bell. "You are in St. parish?" he asked giving the name of the nearest church. "Yes," was the reply as we ushered him in with all politeness, for no one de- serves more consideration than a rep- resentative of the parish bent on some unselfish cause. After the gen- tleman was carefully seated we were informed he had come in reference to the "drive now being made." 'What is it?" said we. "Why, the missionary drive," said he and con- demorcracy and his philosophy, to- gether with his ready and clean wit, made millions enjoy him. Last week, however, Mr. Rogers cheapened himself, his wit, his phi- losophy and his country to death.

Great credit is due also to each mem- ber of the team; Lucille Van Lear and Margaret Reinhart did splendid playing in the center while Bobble Schafer and Carolyn Yarnell, as guards, frequen'tly kept their oppo- nents from making goals.
