With the hardest part of the home schedule ahead Coach Driver faces the problem of building up another basketball team this season. Of the team which played the first games for "Washburn, Smilev, Janney and Chan ey left school directly after Christmas. The team that has been in the field since these men left was unable to keep up the intellectual pace set by the professors and Captain MeNeish, Pearson and Trobert are out of the name by the eligibility route. Of the men who started the season, only the Ream brothers remain, both very good men but not good enough to win a Ftate championship unaided. Of the remaining men on the squad very few have had much basketball experience. Washburn has played in few games and was a good man on the local high school team but is hardly fast enough or rough enough for the college game. Myers is a hard worker but has been bothered with an frm injured in football. Bailey is a good goal shooter but is not fast enough for forward and can not guard well enough for a center. -Of the remaining eligible men there are only the two seniors, O'Brien and Leger. Both of these men are better with ideas than baskets. Out of this bunch the coach must make a center, n forward and a guard by Friday night for the College of Emporia game and repeat them Saturday afternoon in the game with the Aggies. THE "BOOSTERS" WON Tint Harry Snyder's Team Made Good Record. The "Boosters" were victors in the race for honors in the Commercial club membership campaign!, which closed this morning at 9 o'clock, win ning from the "Roosters" by a margin of 104 points.

Harry Snyder's Rooster team made the best record for an individual team, and consequently will be given a dec orated box. This team collected $1,004. A total of $4,616 in cash was turned in at the office of the club as. a re-H fult of the campaign.. Sixty new-names wtre added to the list of Commercial club members.

KELLEY Teh Silver Lake Ex-Mayor Had Host of Friends. As was printed in the State Journal in brief Saturday Joseph W. Kelley, ex-mayor of Silver Lake, dropped dead at his store last Saturday at noon. His death came as a great grief and shock to citizens of Silver Lake. Mr. Kelley had never complained of feeling ill. and seemed in perfect health. He con ducted his business as usual Saturday morning, and was about to leave for lunch, when he dropped to the floor, apparently in a faint. Clerks rushed to his rescue, and a physician was sum- monea immediately. It was ascertained that Mr. Kelley was quite dead, ap parently from heart failure. Mr. Kelley was 56 years old, had lived in Silver Lake about 18 years, and was one of the most likable men in town. Several years ngo he bought out a general merchandise store which had run down; he increased the busi ness two or three times ,and built up' the biggest store in Silver Lake. He was several times mayor, a prominent member of the Masons, patron of the Kastern Star, and a Woodman of the World. He left a wife and daughter. Ellen. 18 years of age. Interment will be at the Silver Lake cemetery, the funeral to take iplace this afternoon. Around LaFolIette's Valuation Bill. Washington, Feb. 1".

It places you under COMPANY Office Equipment. 110-12 Eat Eighth Ave. Phone 11 3-Red Topeka QJOCIETY j Mrs. Jouett Shouse is issuing invi I tations for a reception which the will j Rive Friday afternoon of this week for : the wives of the legislators. Senator and Mrs. Shouse are occupying the j house at 1243 Topeka avenue, this win j ter, and the party will be held there. I J Some of the young: society crowd will have a dance Friday evening, February Mr. Wendal Lyman and Mr. Jack I Campbell will have charge of the party. The woman of moderate income if she be also wise will choose her hats with a regard, to-their being suitable for wear with different frocks. Bar ring: the hackneyed black and white 'combination,, there is little left which may be worn witli all colors save all black. This is considered too sombre by many and is also often unbecom ing. This is overcome in the, instance of the hat above by the use of irides cent coque feathers massed at the front of the crown and fAliing toward both sides of the hat. This trimming is comparatively cheap and most serviceable, outwearing most other feathers. ' At the party given Saturday after noon by the members of the Topeka Federation of Women, for " the wives of the state officers and of th- legis lators, informal addresses on art were made by Mrs. Lenore Doster Cooke and Mr. George Stone; Mr. Stone spoke of bis student life in Paris and gave some interesting reminiscences of some of the leading American artists of the day, many of whom he has known inti mately. He gave a. good many personal recollections of some of the artists whose pictures are .to be shown in the ant exhibit to be brought to Topeka by the Federation for two weeks begin ning February 26. He spoke with spe cial warmth of his master in Paris, Worley, who has pictures in the ex hibit. Mrs. Cooke spoke on the subject, "What Is Art," and her answer to the question was "Art 1s self-expression along aesthetic lines, in harmony with the trend of the times. The art of all ages and nations and peopres Iras ' re flected, in its pictures, its sculpture, and its architecture, and Its literature, the dominant thought of the 'time and the country. The art of Rome was an expression of the governmental and military idea; the art of the middle ages shows the domination of the church, another form of art interprets the idea of imperialism, and so in our day the trend of the time which is democratic and socialistic (using the terms in the philosophical sense is shown in the art "works of the day. which portray, the common things of life, the laboring man, the chiidren of poverty, the quiet face of nature, little fence corners, and the things of ordi nary human, interest. Millet was one of the early workers in this line of art, and he was ahead of his day. Every picture should carry a message. In making a portrait, tne artist must put into it his understanding of the char acter of the subject. At the world's fair in Chicago, the stream of human ity that nassed through, the art- gallery singled out for their,! admiration., one picture, whose technique was wretched. "Breaking Home Ties," but its simple homely message was the kind that made the visitor want to go home and be better to his mother and his brother. The idea of the school of impressionism, which has been carried to a fad in some cases, is founded on the effort to express, by indefiniteness of out line, the sense of uncertainty in the times, the plastic and changing quality of ideas and beliefs. The fixity of doctrines and theories in former times was set out in the sharply .defined out line."' In speaking of the way in which a picture should be viewed, Mrs. Cooke said: "A picture is to be looked at and not to be smelled. Every picture has its focal point, which varies for different people, and that point is reached, anywhere from six to fifteen feet away from the picture, according to the distance where the brush marks cease to intrude on the vision." The program for the afternoon was opened with music. Miss Gwendoljn Chase and Mrs. Warrick L'pdegraff sang, and Miss Beuiah Wentworth played the violin. About fifty guests, many of them out-of-town women, were present, and the list of hostesses, members of the federation, is-as fol lows: Mrs. Matilda S. McFariand, Mrs. Margaret Hill McCarter, Mrs. A.
