Well I've hired out to help run the
U. S. Loughary grocery store. I start
in as Office Boy. I have to help un
pack the new goods, keep the shelves
and boxes filled up, sweep out, clean
the windows, and write the ads. I
guess I'll earn' my five per all right
all right.
Honest, I think I'm going to like
my job. I like the looks of the cus
tomers, the people around the store,
the boss looks good to me and I've
been out of a job so long I'm actually
itching for a spell of work. The busy
season is on us, and I see by the way
the clerks are jumping around that I
won't have any excuse for growing
corns. Only forty minutes for lunch.
But say, they're calling me already.
College Outclasses Rink.
The First Team of Dallas College
defeated the Dallas Skating Team In
a game of basketball at the Colosseum
Rink, Tuesday night, easily scoring
66 to its opponent s 6. The rink team
although fast enough for anyone,
while on skates, was clearly out of its
class when it doffed the rollers and
tackled the husky college five afoot.
The college team will practice on- the
rink floor daily during the coming
week, desiring in this way to become
better accustomed to a large floor,, and
to be able to meet Corvallis on a more
nearly equal footing when the big
game is played in the O. A. C. armory
next week.
Program at Colosseum Rink.
Skating every afternoon and evening
at the Colosseum rink. Good music
Admission, skaters, 25 cents. Thurs
day evening's session will be reserved
