    Frog With 'Mental Superiority'
Enters Famed Calaveras Derby
ANGELS CAMP, Cal., May 14—
(UPj—Frog enthusiasts tonight
were centering their attention upon
the age-old question of brain pow
er versus muscle power in the 21st
renewal of the International Jump
ing Frog derby.
College of Pacific students at
Stockton, Cal., came up with a sur
prise last minute entry named “Phi
Beta Phrog” that they claimed
• would exert mental superiority to
overcome the handicap of having
only four legs.
Two five-legged jumpers have
been entered by a pair of California
scientists on the premise the ex
tra push from the spare limb
should mean extra inches.
The extravaganza traces its ori
gin back to Mark Twain’s short
story, “The Celebrated Jumping i
Frog of Calaveras County,” writ
ten nearly 100 years ago. And an
estimated 35,000 persons are ex
pected to jam this tiny hamlet over
the weekend to see the show, and
maybe wager a little money on
their favorite frogs.
Meeting Time Changed
The Heads of Houses meeting
scheduled for 4 p.m. Monday has
been changed'to 3 p.m. The meet
ing, which is for both house presi
dents and house mothers, will be

* While speeding to the fair;
Said the Policeman, whats your hurry
Safe driving gets you there!
Don’t sit with a chip on your shoulder when the traffic officer tells you to “take it easy”!
He stops and warns dozens of Simple Simons every day—to save them and others from
accident and death. Safety is his business.
Speed—the greatest cause of fatal accidents—kills 10,000 and injures 400,000 every year.
r You can help make the highways safe. Respect the rules of the road. Observe all speed
limits. Never drive too fast for road or traffic conditions.
Think right—drive right! You won’t lose much time—and you may save a life!
