What Sort of a
Chap Was George?
father (if hii} country, was
born at 10 o’clock on Friday morn
ing, February 22, 1732. The hour
and day of the week, though not
generally known, are authentic,
having been provided through ref
erences to the Washington family
bible and by perusal of astronomi
cal formulae. Time-worn subjects
are always improved with a little
original material.
It is always fun to wonder what
the world’s great men were really
like. Was George a good husband?
Was he bored at church? Was he
noisy with his soup? Did lie bother
with a cuspidor? Did that august
dignity shed by all his pictures
shine with equal vigor upon the
members of his household? Did he
play with his children? Or did ho
have children? •
It is really a pity that we haven’t

No man can look natural when he

More Evidence of
America’s Greatness
AN inspirational editorial, patri
otically speaking, especially
appropriate -on a national holiday,
is the following from the Daily
Iowan: ' .
"Plain, forthright names are the
role in our remarkable republic.
Oeorge Washington, Andrew Jack
son, Abraham Lincoln, are examples
of the good old fashioned American
name which says something and
then stops.
"In this respect we may claim a
certain kinship with the world of
the ancients. Cicero, Caesar, Hanni
bal, Socrates — these are names
whose pregnant syllables intrigue
the mind. They are real names and
real personalities.
"In imlodorn Europe, however, are
to be found many whose names
would make a suitable sketch in
"Who’s Who and How Come.’’
"The following is the name of a
citizen of Spain:

Tragedy, absorbing mystery, and
marvelous characterizations are the
outstanding qualities of “Beau ties

depicted in the love for each other

REX: Last day: Jetta Goudal in
“Her Man O’War,” with William
Boyd, in a glowing romance of the
great conflint, when heart beats
were quickened to the deafening roll
of thundering drums: a typical pro

comedy and news events; Clifton
Emmel at the organ.
IIEILIG: Today only: “Beau
Geste” in road show production with
showings at 2:30 and 8:20 o’clock.
“Beau Geste” is a tragedy, tinged
throughout with a feeling of impend
ing terror of absorbing mystery.
But the dread horror of it all, the
cuelty and fears and passions, al
most are eclipsed by the fidelity
and love of three Geste brothers to
each other.
Starting Wednesday and continu
ing Friday and Saturday—-“The
Scarlet Letter*’ featuring Lillian
Gish. The picture portrays the stern
intolerance of the early Puritans,
their hardships and their fanatical
opposition to all that savors of
pleasure. The story is staged on a
lavish scale.

Gunther was an all-coast forward
last year, but this year his duties
have been mostly along guarding
lines. Gunther has developed until
he is almost in a class by himself
ns a guard. Bright spots in his
career this year are his work against
Captain Schuss of Washington at
Seattle, when the blonde skipper of
the Huskies was held to one field
goal, and that a long one, while
.lorry was scoring liberally, and his
deportment again Captain Graap of
0. -\. C. who was held to one field
goal in Corvallis recently. Graap’s
tally came when Gunther slipped and
fell down, thus leaving him un

Ridings Back in Game
Young Gord Hidings, another very
excellent 'guard who is listed as a
forward, will be back in harness to
night, as he is needed for his floor
work, and ball-hounding.
"If the boys play together and
forget about piling up scoring rec
ords,” says Billy Reinhart, who is
in a position to know, “we will
win tonight, but otherwise a great
surprise may greet the fans who
open Wednesday morning’s paper.
If the boys play ball the way they
know how, we’ll beat them all.”

Girls’ Choice
Of Sports Takes
New Tendency
F. Alden Says Activities
Showing Individuality
Are Most Popular
Special Needs Satisfied by
Five Classifications
A significant change has taken
place during the last few years in
the kind of activities selected by
the girls taking physical education,
according to Florence D. Alden, di
rector of the women’s physical ed
ucation department.
The most popular activities chosen
are those which show the greatest
individuality, such as interpretive
dancing, the first on the list, swim
ming and horseback riding, while
team activities, a few years ago the
most popular, are now nest to the
lowest in popularity.
“I do not believe that this neces
sarily means that we ar» becoming
individualistic to an undesirable ex
tent,” Miss Alden said. “Possibly
it would indicate that the girls are
consciously taking activities that
will serve them as recreation after
school days when they cannot call a
team together for organized- sports
at a moment’s notice.”
The system used in the women’s
physical education department has
been entirely changed this year,
Miss Alden went on to explain. Last
year the sole classifications were in
A and B groups, consisting respec
tively of the higher fifty per cent
and the lower fifty per cent.
Now, however, the girls are div
ided into five classifications, all of
which receive distinctive work and
special^ privileges, to fit the girls’
special needs. First, there is the
individualistic gymnastics class for
those who need special attention.
Second, the novice class, composed
of those passing below 5 in the pos- ,
turo or above 37 in the agility test, j
These girls are given a few min- 1
utes of wide awake posture and de
velopment work and are then divid
ed into squads according to their
most obvious needs. Although the
work is both restricted and correc
tive to a certain extent, a very def
inite effort is made to interest the
girls not only in their own improve
ment, but in the activities them
The third group is composed of
the average girls, who are allowed
to elect folk dancing and clogging,
games and sports, swimming, inter
pretative dancing, horstbaek riding,
or fencing.
The honor group may elect any of
the aoove activities, or may substi
tute any supervised intramural sport
for the required work.
The same agility and posture tests
that were used last year were re
peated this year, and show a very
definite correlation to the (girls’
ability as proven by other means.
Several majors in the department
have worked with this as a thesis
problem during the last three years.
Emphasis of the system is placed
upon three points: 1. To find out
what each girl’s special needs are
and to try to fit the work to those
needs. 2. To put girls of similar
ability, skill and knowledge in
classes together so that they may
progress evenly and enjoy working
together. 3. To offer a very wide
range of choice of work, so that
the girl may enter into the type of
activity in which she is interested.
