Lieutenant Foster tells of attending
a service in a German church at Christ
mas time- All the prayers uttered by
the people, and all those printed and
tacked on the walls, he said, were peti
I tions to the Holy Mother to bless each
I one of the parishioners, his family and
bis friends and to send them all good
crops and prosperity. Every one of
them was selfish in the extreme and ac
cording to Lieutenant Foster typified
the spirit of the German people.
Foster was secretary on the campus
for two years and left in the spring of
1917. lie is now first lieutenant of
Company C, 357th Infantry, stationed
in Germany near Coblenz.

FPFSHMAN GIRLS’ AGE 19.8
Weight Averages 119; Chest Expansion
About Three Inches.
Some interesting Average figures on
the physical examinations given to 200
girls entering the University this fall
for the first time have been compiled
by Miss Harriet Thomson, instructor
in the physical training department. The
average age of the girls examined was
10.8 years. Their average weight was
The average chest expansion was
three inches and the ninth rib expansion
three ami one tenth inches. These fig
ures show that there is a tendency
among the girls to breathe more deeply.
This tendency is noticeable in several
of the eastern colleges, Miss Thomson
said. That the young women of today
are breathing more deeply is duo to tiie
fact that physical exercise is becoming
more popular consequently the old man
ner of chest breathing is disappearing.
'I'llc» average lung capacity of the 200
girls was 174.5 cubic inches.

Manerud Scores 16 Points;
Mark Latham Tosses
The freshmen handed the Chemawa
Indians one of the most artistic trim
mings, along basketball lines, that has
been seen on the local floor for several
moons, when they buried the braves un

ternoon. The scorckeeper was kept so
busy that he was forced to appeal to
the business office for an adding ma
chine, but his requeui was denied as the
office was busy figuring up how many
hours some members of the sophomore
class had to their credit.
The frosh were not worried about
losing the mix, they knew the result sev
eral days before, and they went on the
floor and proceeded to roll up a one
sided score on the Indians. The frosh
wasted no time getting started, but gath.

Iu the second period Coach “Shy” Hunt

crew of second string artists who just
could not keep from tossing them in.
The second period was more even, the
score being 82 to 10.
Manerud and Latham Star
“Skeet” Manerud had a delightful af
ternoon. When he was not converting
fouls he was busy tossing field baskets,
and he turned iu ft card reading 10 for

on field baskets, which is a fair day’s

X church a saloon was being run which
was felt by all the citizens of the town
to be ruining the community life. Smith,
the new pastor of the church, in his
first sermon prayed that lightning from
heaven might destroy the building. That
same day lightning did strike an out
house near the saloon and had it not
been for the prompt intervention of the
fire department it would have destroyed
the saloon itself. Jones, the proprietor,
hearing about Smith’s sermon, sued the
latter for an attempted arson of his
property, claiming that all the elements
of a criminal attempt were there, viz.,
