WHY THE OVEKWOIMU
Early Christinas shopping is a gift
that costs nothing and is one that
pleases the shop girl, the delivery boy
and the bookkeeper. Christmas pres
ents are not measured by their money
value but by the willingness that
causes them to be sent aud the pleas
ure that they give.
Thousands of shop girls and deliv
ery boys are forced to work over time
near the holidays. It is all caused by
the habit that persons have of waiting
until the last few days to do their
holiday buying. ICarly shopping would
gladden the hearts of these young
people who are forced to work for
To them a lull in business just be
fore Christmas would be a gift. It
would mean rest for them and they
would be able to enjoy the one holi
dav that all surelv should hae.
COLLEGE SORORITY INITIATES 13
WOMAN'S PART IX COrRTHIP.
There is too much convention in
life today, according to a number of
modern writers. This fact is best il
lustrated in our customs regarding
courtship. The mau has all the ini
tiative in the matter, and the woman
is supposed to sit passively by and
wait for the man to come and often
the one who does woo her is not her
choice. Still she must marry him or
become an "old maid".
Is it possible that it would be a bet
ter condition if the woman could meet
the man at least half way? Would it
not be more natural for her to be able
to show her honest feelings in the
matter, Instead of sitting by and act
ing an indifference she does not feel?
'It is pointed out that many young
persons marry knowing very little of
each other. The conditions of the
courtship are artificial and unnatural.
The two in love never think of having
a serious conversation regarding the
more serious aspects of future life to
gether but spend their time in pleasure-seeking,
believing that once they
are married, things will come out all
right. But alas, too often they find
that such is not so and much sorrow
and regret is the result
Maud Churton IJraby, author of
"Modern Marriage and How to Bear
It," a book which is one of the "best
sellers" in England at the present
time, has opened up the whole ques
tion for animated public discussion.
It Is, however, unnecessary to advo
cate such radical means as she ad
vises a pre-marital honeymoon, mar
riage on approval, or at least love at
first sight; but it is becoming recog
nized that the rights of the woman in
the case have been sadly neglected and
that she has been held down and
hedged in by a lot of useless restrictions.
Jim Thorpe, the remarkable Sac
and Fox Carlisle Indian, is the great
est athlete of modern times. He is
great in any branch of athletics. On
the football gridiron, on the baseball
diamond or on the cinder track, he
excels his fellow man. Just now we
are too much wrapped up in his foot
ball brilliancy to look back to his
work on the diamond and on the
It was only a few weeks ago that
Thorpe carried the ball through the
entire West Point eleven for a touch
down. New York football critics say
that this run will undoubtedly go
down in football history as one of
the most spectacular ever made. Out
of nine games played this season,
Thorpe has repeated this perform
ance in seven of them. In the game
with Dickinson College Thorpe re
covered a bad pass six yards back of
his own goal line and ran through
the entire team for a touchdown.
Some have attributed his great
runs to luck but he has repeated them
