shot put added another record-breaker

W.S.C. WINS TWO FROM OREGON.
The State Collge baseball team dem
onstrated its abiltiy in a very satis
factory manner by winning the first
two inter-collegiate games played this
year. In the first Wednesday, the uni
versity of Oregon was defeated by the
score of 13-3. The game was devoid of
any sensational ulaying, loose work
on the part of both teams showing up
prominently. Hurd, the Oregon pitcher
was touched up for hits In each inning
and was forced to give way to Beck
in the sixth. McCully pitched good
ball, fanning six and giving only one
a base on balls. The second game
played Thursday was well worth look
ing at. The two teams went in for
business good and strong. The battery
work was better, hits fewer, and field
ing free from costly errors. DalquUt
held the slab for the state college for
seven innings when Halm went in and
finished the game. From the first of
the seventh until the last half of the
ninth the score held 3-3 and both teams
playing hard. With one man out and
Brown on second and Meyer on third,
Weller sent a long fly into left field.
Smith muffed it and both Brown and
Meyer scored. Even had Smith
caught the fly Meyer could have beat
the ball in, thus winning the game.
The final score was 5 to 3.
TELLS OF "SEEP
Interesting: Lecture Delivered by
Professor W. G- Beach at
One of the most interesting lectures
ever given at the State College was
delivered by Professor Beach, the first
of the week. His subject was "The
Search for Happiness". He said:
"All mankind seeks for happiness
but there is often a failure to find it.
Three things are essential to this end,
and the first is work. Human nature
is made for activity and all contact
of men with nature or society is for
him a suggestion of activity, and work
is merely activity disciplined ar.d di
rected toward an end. The empty life
is discontented. But it is important to
find the right work in life. If pos
sible work should be chosen not merely
because of wages, but because it is
that for which one is fit and into
which he may put his life.
"The second condition of happiness is
rest. This means relaxation, variety,
reflection, and inspiration. Exces
sive work brings discontent instead of
happiness; it hardens the mind, de
stroys the body, and makes life me
chanical. Moreover masses of men
must be engaged in forms of work in

which they cannot find happiness eith
er because the work is more or leas
brutal or because it is purely mechan
ical. This is peculiarly true of our
age. Hence the righteousness of the
demand that for men whose work
cannot bring happiness there should be
rest or leisure in which to find it in
other ways. Work is for life and not
life for work, and the life in which
work is everything destroys itself.
"We are all members of society and
in this society pain and misery seem
quite as frequent as happiness. One
cannot hope to find joy for himself by
standing on the back of one who suf
"The third condition of happiness
is service. The selfish life is dissat
isfied, while the life that enters into
the needs of fellow men, strives to
brintr happine-s to them, also finds it
"Happiness is not a possession; it
is a part of ourselves, and i» found
only in satisfying the largest and best
self which each one has. Work, rest,
service: these are essential to our
higher natures; upon them happiness
