Professor John Galen Howard, a mem

California declares that scrambling
books to getlier ten minutes before the
hour may show a lack of politeness, but
in reality it is only the resistless hurry
of the day and not intentional rudeness.
Good manners are not decreasing among
the students according to Professor How

enrolled in our modern universities he
acknowledges that there always a few

COLONEL LEADER NOW
HANDLES HOCKEY TEAM
Co-Eds Show Enthusiasm Over Game
and Coach Decides to Play
“The greatest thing since Gettys
burg,” was the way Colonel John Lead
er expressed his opinion of the junior
freshman hockey game waging fiercely
on Cemetery ridge last night. “This
reminds me of a trench raid,” said the
Colonel, as he watched the squabbles
over the “putt” and heard the crack
of the sticks. Colonel Leader is the
new hockey coach. Last night as the
players sauntered off the field with a
few bruised arms and fingers, enthusi
asm was rampant over the game and
the new- coach. Such orders as “Drib
ble that ball!” “to the wing,” “now
center,” and “you’re a dear wing,”
brought eneourageing results.
The Colonel did not play today but
he will have his stick on the “putt” to
morrow to give the team a good run.
This hockey stuff, it is reported, has
dieting “skinned all hollow” and makes
one feel more like eating than ever.
AT THE THEATRES
Opening with two greatly differing
types of stories, the photoplay pro
grams at the Rex and Castle theatres
are unusually attractive this week.
Dorothy Dalton in “The Siren Call,”
a fervid romance of Alaska during the
gold rush days, is the featured offering
for three days, starting Monday, at the
Rex. In addition to the main picture,1
the organ concert by Charles W. Haw
ley, Rex Wurlitzer artist, contains a:
group of three numbers, Rachmaninoff ’«
“Prelude in C sharp minor,” “My Old
Kentucky Home” as a special request
number, and selections from “Chu Chin
Chow.” As a Rex specialty, Delmar
“Dizzy” Imper will be heard in saxo
The Castle presentations starting j
Monday for two days, offer Lon Chaney
arid a star east in “Flesh and Blood”;
which is credited with being even su
perior to that stellar star ’s character-J
ization in “The Penalty,” and as an
atmospheric prelude, John R. Britz and
his Castle orchestra will render “Love’s
Old Sweet Song,” presenting Mr. Britz
as a solo violinist.
An event to be anticipated is the Y.
M.-Y. }V. mix to be held next Friday
evening in the Armory. The affair,
which is annual, will this year be in
the nature of a county fair. Side-shows,
concessions and food will be the fea
tures, as well as some clever stunts.

ANY good washing machine today
can be re'.ied upon to do the wash

machine that does the drying too. The
Laun-Dry-Ette has no wringer. It
whirls the clothes dry for the line—ar.d
it whirls them dry a tubful at a time.
Doesn't smash buttons—Doesn’t bend
