Dirt-Eaters Almost Win Fight
The pen of the journalist is still migh
tier than the pick of the geologist. The
campus newshounds proved the point
when they scribbled a 21-19 victory over
the stone crackers in the basketball de
bate held in the gym last night.
The mix was a free for all affair,
hitting and ear biting in clinches being
permissable. The encounter was so close
ly contested that three extra five-minute
sessions had to be played before the

in the crashing melee. Both squads were
strong in substitutes, with seven or eight
relief men raring to go. The journalists
relied on their initial strength, while the
men of Quartz hall shoved two cruisers,
the scout cruiser, McConnell, and the
armored ship, Johnson, in to stem the
bombardment, but Admiral Walkley’s

At first the Quartz fleet, Harding,
Moore and Fraser executed dexterously, i
but the two dreadnaughts kept them well
out of range. The pick handlers scored
first, Fraser richoeheting one off the
backboard. The journalists evened the
count, Mungo Fraser tallying when Walk

COMMERCE SENIORS TAKE

Many Methods Used by Impromptu
Teachers in Conveying Knowledge
to Freshman Classes
If grey hairs are discovered, or if
new wrinkles have appeared to mar
the usually benign countenances of cer
tain senior business administration ma
jors, be assured that there is a reason.
Sleepless nights spent in grim toil to
recover the lost knowledge of fresh
man days, devising ways and means to
check the exuberance of frosh who are,
enjoying the absence of their regular
instructors, and finally being considered

faculty member, is enough to make age

of three days, declare the seniors who
are taking charge of some of the classes j
in the school of business administra

engaged in the work of the merchants ’
convention this week.
Walter Hempe, who teaches two div-;
isions of beginning accounting, says he
will never recover from the shock he
received when a member of his class
told him it must be hard for him to
take charge of three extra classes in
V, addition to those he regularly taught.
Len Jordan says the best opening
exercises he can think of is to announce,
“All students please close your books,
I will keep mine open,” while George
Johnston states that all he has to do at
the opening of the period is to an
nounce in a stern voice, “Pipe down,
you are not at home now.”
S. W. Starr declares his greatest diffi
culty is that his lectures usually end
about five minutes before the hour does.

THE HOTTENTOT AT HEX
A picture challenge to every comedy
special ever screened, is the audacious
proclamation of “The Hottentot.” the
Thomas H Ince picturization of the
famous stage farce comedy that
brought, fame and fortune to Willie
Collier and which opens today, for two
days at the Rex. A brilliant cast led
by Douglas MaeLean, Madge Bellamy
and Raymond Hatton, enact the stellar
roles with a dash and fire that out
shadows anything yet seen upon the j
•farce field. «
The story centers around the mirth
filled escapades of Sam Harrington,
who for the love of the fair maiden
is caught in the web of his own brag
“Oh! Yes indeed her little boy
is so much better off away from
her—she would be such a bad
influence, you know—that im

Old citizens recount of the good old
days when floods were bigger than they
are now. Once the business district
was under water, they say.
S. Smeede states there was a flood
in 1881 “that was a flood!” Brush and
timber jammed the banks and kept
back the surging water to some extent
is his statement.
Dr. William Kuykendall recalls the
overflows of the winter of ’90 and '91
