The Webfoots are back at scrimmage today after completing a
very successful Inland Empire invasion. While on this trip they

“If a child dies under seven years
of age, it’s an angel and everyone

The Indians of Mexico are chil

listeners. “The are full of bird lore.
If an Indian sees a scarlet tanager,

will arrive safely, though if its tail
is toward him lie gives up Immedi

Hal Young Scores Hit
In Concert of Gleemen
By MARGUERITE WITTWER
Like the wistful call of a muezzin from an ivory tower or the
muted coloring of a Persian carpet, Hal Young’s solo, “Ah,
Moon of My Delight’’ by Lehman with words from Omar
Khayyam’s Rubaiyat, brought a maximum of applause from
th audience of 200 which crowded McArthur court last night
for the annual mid winter concert of the Eutrene Gleemen.

Sacco’s "Johnny the One” is the

proud of their heritage . . . “John

(Rohm) with the essential simpli

Stark’s blending of tonal shading;
and “The Arkansas Traveler”, an
American folk song. The accom

Frey and Glen Griffith would have
made interesting listening by itself
because of the novelty of syncopa

House Firesides Considered
For Future Love Discussions
Next year the Love and Marriage series may be in the form
of longer house meetings and no assemblies, Charlotte Calder,
chairman of the series, said Sunday afternoon at the close of the
question and answer meeting in Guild hall.
Miss Calder’s announcement followed comments on the
success of the series. Because of the small attendance at the two
Sunday meetings, it was suggested
that these either be done away
with, or that one longer assembly,
at which attendance would' be re
quired, be substituted. It was point
ed out that house discussions allow
for choice of specific problems and
make for more freedom in exam
ining the sfibject.
Over an hour was spent by Dr.
R. R. Huestis, professor of zoology,
Dr. L. S. Bee, assistant professor
of sociology, and Dr. Wesley G.
Nicholson, pastor of the Congrega
tional church, in answering writ
To the question, “How does mar
riage fare if both the man and
wife has a profession?” Dr. Nich
olson answered that he and his
wife are doing it successfully. Sat
isfactory provisions must be made
for the family and each must be
willing to share the responsibil
ities of a home, including house
work, he said. Others on the plat
form mentioned that leaving small
children in others’ care did not al
ways work successfully.
“Should I consider marrying a
person who writes with ardent
phrases and whom I haven’t seen
for over a year?” Dr. Bee’s reply
to this question was that a good
guide is using the “Criteria we
would use in normal times,” more
strictly applied because of current
“Sheltering” from sex knowledge
and how to rid oneself of fear of
it turned the discussion to a bio
logical explanation by Dr. Huestis
that sex is nothing new, and that
children should learn about it be
fore they become affected by emo
tions. Reading the best literature
available and consulting authori
ties was* advised.
A bibliography of love, marriage,
and family was given to those at
tending Sunday’s meeting. Copies
are available at Westminster

Comments on “What about trial

that too many people expect to get
