To Dot, From Cecelia
DEAREST “DOT:”
I understand that I will not have
the extreme pleasure of addressing
>ou much longer. The new PLAjNEi
which is scheduled to come to you
irom th epress every week beginning
January 3, makes a slight order m
tne order of atfairs and 1 am afraid
that the change is to our disadvan
tage. However, it would seem nar
row in us not to sacrifice our let
ter for something much greater. We
wish to extend the promoters of
tins great project our congratula
tions.
The news I have for you this week
is more than interesting, decidely
full. It might cause me to take a
longer portion of your time, but
assure you that your enjoyment will
be by no means diminished. If you
have no objections, it would be a
source of delight for me to review
th einneidenta of the week just past
with a little “Sub-deb Chatter. ’
Marshall Brown, the younger son
to Dr. and Mrs. Fred Brown, oi «.
Fifth is one on whom we first lo
cus our attention. Master Brown,
entertained a large group of his
friends on last Friday afternoon. At
tendants at the party report tha
Marshall was most entertaining, a
bent all possible efforts to see thai
hfs gueste were well pleased. The
young ladies present, and repieoen
tativef of Richmond’s soon-to-be
dtbs, were the Misses
tou, Salliey Peyton. Mary Bragg.
Miriam Robinson, Carlotta Room
son, Nancy Robinson, Isadore Roo
inson, Doris Quarles, Clara Jack
son Rosa Brown, Madelyne Jackson,
Alice Reed, Carlotta Brockington,
Bcrthel Mayo, Jewel Watson, Mag

Washington, Pauline Earley, Mayme
Lou Fields, Lillian bwann, Evelyn
Swann, Leola Hardnag, Bernctte
Wood, Coralease Norrell, Elnora
Ward, Daisy Taylor, Althea Wash
ington, Annette Washington.
These little ladies had as their
partners for the afternoon, James

Johnson, I. A. Jackson, II, Walter
Wright, Armstead Walker, William
Calloway, James Major -Colsoq, lhe
fourth, Curtis Banks, Charles Mal
lory.
While we are not mentioning this
age group, it seems quite appropri
ate to speak of the “We Moderns,
Jr.’’ As far as I recall, j^e have
not this rather enticing group tor
at least a month. Our attention was
again called to them, last week
is hen they held their regular meet
ing with the Misses Sallie and Her
moine Peyton, daughters to Mr.
ana Mrs. Walter Peyton, residents
of North First Street. Completion
of their plans for the fast approach
ing Yuletide season involved quite
a bit of the time usually allotted to
business. These congenial host
esses surprised their guests with a
very refreshing menu. Those pres
ent were the Misses Margaret Wes
tray, Alice Reid, Faith Morris, Eve
lyn Gilpin, Marjorie Stokes and
their president, Miss Edna Bradley.
We have been waiting patiently,
to see who we would have the
pleasure of addressing as “Miss Sig
ma Gamma Rho.” Miss Mamie
Brown, the petite co-ed, was the
most successful candidate. Miss
Brown had very close rivals in the
persons of Misses Mary P. Smith and
Lavinia Cogbill. Their managers
were elated over this apparent suc
cess. As was planned previously,
Miss Sigma Gamma Rho will be pre
sented to Richmond, on Christmas
Eve or I suppose that I shoud have
said, Christmas morning at their
“Dawn” dance to be featured at
Johnson’s Hall. Congratulations Miss
Brown.
At the home of Mis3 Beatrice
Edmonds, 506 North 6th Street, on
Sunday, the members of the Delvers
Literary, Club of which Miss Ed
monds is treasurer. Many favorable
comments have been passed on the
Tea by those present. Among whom
were Misses Blanche Coles, Henriet
ta, Barrett, Thelma Winston, Ella
Hudson, Mary Wingfield, Eloise
Bowles, Geraldine Bolling, Olivia
Cumber, Hattie Gray, Goldie Coots
Mrs. Ruth Jackson, Misses Hallie Ed
monds, Laura Westray, Ruth Car

some, Paul Dill Morton, Mr. and Mrs
J. Henry Peters, B. Addison Cephas
II, Charles Bland, James M. Almas
Mrs. Henry Walton, Mr. and Mrs
Hampton Logan, Mr. and Mrs. Clar
ence Saunders, Miss Madeline Ham
ilton, Mrs. R. B. Sampson, Mr. and
Mrs. Louis F. Jeffries, Clarence
Wright, Commodore Bennett, Eman
uel Stewart, Mr. and Mrs. C. Bernard
Cephas. Some of these persons ap
peared on the program. This Musi
cal Tea, as I understand, is the first
of a series that the Delvers hope to
sponsor. So those of us who did not
have the opportunity of receiving the
benefit of this program will have
other chances to have the “Delvers”
as our hostesses on one of the occa
sions.
When you take into consideration
the date, I suppose you will think
that I should hav eincluded in my
letter last week, reports from the en
tertainment which Coach Hucles al
lowed his footUaTl squad of the sea
son just past to enjoy. Coach
Hucles was host, in an attempt to
partly show members of the squad
his appreciation of their efforts in
having Union make such a memora
ble showing with the sport. Danc

Hucles prepared were enjoyed by
Misses Eunice Joyner, Grace Hughes,

Members of the Dramatic Club
j.t Virginia Union were the rather
delightful host and hostesses at the
home of Miss Grace Hughes, 503 N.
ot. James Street, on Saturday
evening. Miss Hughes as we know
is a resident of Morgan Hall this
season, but forsook her days of lei
sure on the campus for the bene
fit of the Dramatic Club. Members
of the club enjoyed having as
their guests for the evening Misses
Carolyn Dungee, Lucille Bareo,
Christiine Williams, Shirley Duiguid,
Elwyza Duiguid, Eunice Joyner, Na
omi Hucles, Christiine Wade, Cath
erine Watson, Cora Turner, Indiana

Henry A. Payne, assistant coach of
football at Howard, Jake Mays, and
John 0. Hopkins, II, of Lincoln;
Eugene Kinckle Jones, II, E. Ray
mond Fairfax, M. Lamb, John Ash
lej, Ethel R. Harris.
I have been waiting for a length
of time, closely akin to a week to
relay to you those most favorable
comments aroused as a result of the
very elaborate party which those
who were guest to Dr. and Mrs. Wil
lis Pettis, enjoyed on last Saturday
evening. This host and hostess
showed the best of their congeniality
to “Jerry” Dismond, A’Lelia W aiker,
Miss Mayme W’hite, Lloyd James,
Mr. and Mrs. T. Everett Johnson,
T. Everett Johnson, II, Miss Nina
Hill, Dr. and Mrs. Gregory A. Gal
vin, Dr. and Mrs. Madison Jones.
The honorees of this hospitality
shown by Dr. and Mrs. Pettis, were
the first* named four, “Jerry” Dis
mond, A’Lelia Walker, Lloyd James
and Mayme White. I have been try
ing to ascertain the proper name to
be given the supper which the par
ticipants enjoyed but all I can gather
is that it was one of the swellest
suppers possible. When the guests
repaired homeward they agreed that
the evening had been one of the
most well spent, it had been their
privilege to witness.
Thisoccasion lor wmcn L>r. auu
Mrs. Pettis, brings to our minds the
tact that Richmond had the unus
uality last week of having “Jerry”
Dismond, A’Lelia Walker, Mayme
White and Lloyd James to spend a
period of three days in their midst.
“Jerry” alias Lady Nicotine, was
the house guest of Mrs. Mary Binga
of 1306 Decatur Street, and also
Mrs. Hattie N. F. Walker, 110 East
Leigh Street. The other members
of the party were guests of 1.
Everett Johnson, Jr., who inciden
tally is spending a short time with
his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Everett
Johnson, 11 East Clay Street. These
visitors to Richmond were lavishly
entertained, as no doubt you know.
An event which many of us had
awaited since invitations were issued
two weeks ago, appeased us on
Wednesday evening. H. Berkeiy Jor
dan of Douglas Court was our host.
We are indebted to Mr. Jordan for
the most outstanding affair at which
wt have had the pleasure of being
in attendance this season. A cordial
hospitality was felt at the door,
Immediately upon entering, the
cedar, pine, red and green lights,
placed you in an attitude appropriate
for the fast arriving Christmas
season. The proverbial mistletoe,
though not heeded, hung between the
living room and dining room. Special
Christmas trinkets scattered effec
tively about, were noticed. Called
especially to our attention were the
poinsetta-like lights placed on the
bufFet, and the extravagantly deco
rated mantel. A few’ hours of dancing
and then the two course menu. Again
the couples danced to the strains of
F.ddie Miller and his dance orchestra,
and music furnished by John H.
Hester. Those present were the
Misses Alice Jackson, in shell pink,
satin-back crepe, with E. Raymond
!• airfax, Rose Sully in pea green
chiffon with B. Addison Cephas 11,
Harriette Wilson in pink taffeta with

C.I. A. A. Holds 20th Annual Session
Union-jState Place
3 On First Eleven
Hampton Institute, Va., Dec. 15:—
Football in the C. I. A. A. during
the past season was much like that
of last year. As a whole the play
was of a middle class order, with
just one or two teams standing out
Teams that seemed to forcast won
derful aggreagtions as the season
moved down the line failed before
the half mark was reached.
Hampton began with a rush, but
(altered along the rugged journey.
Union’s brand of play was maintain
ed, though the Panthers had nothing
like the teams of old. Morgan main
tained her dizzy pzee with only one
reverse and closed the season with
an excellent team. Howard showed
improvement over last year, but fail
ed to present a stron gwinning com
bination. Johnson C. Smith started
out good, but began to show sluggish
ness as the season rolled along. Lin
coln had an improved machine but
not a great team. As for the other
elevens a look over the final stand
ings will tell the story.
The players picked here for the
season’s honor, a place on the all
star eleven are placed because of
thrir work during the gridiron war
fare. Every man’s qualifications
have been considered. He has been
closelv watched and studied through
out the year. Among these qualifica
tions are; his all-round ability to
carry out his job better than the
other fellow, and with a degree of
consistency; his weak and strong
points; his ability to out guess and
out smart the opposition; how he
stands up under stiff opposition;
whether he is good only against
soft foes and bad against tough as
signments, or whether he carries on
sturdily against all that is sent a
gainst him.
THE ENDS
There were few outstanding ends
throughout the season. The crop was
small and after the process of elimi
nation the two man for the flank
positions were picked- Va. State bad
Payne; Lineoln. Sydnor; Hampton,
Smith, Red Ellis; at Union John
Williams; St. Paul had Conliffe. But
the selection narrowed down to John
Williams of Union and Thomas of
Hampton.
THE TACKLES
The crop of tackles was not of a
high order. The few who were out
standing ran a fairly close race.
There was Lane of A. and T., Bara
bin of Va. State; Gaines of Hamp
ton; Robinson of Union; Kane of
Lincoln; and Johnson of Morgan.
These men faced the guns and were
there at every turn. Their consist
ent work overshadowed the rest of
the lot and after due process, Gaines
of Hampton and Robinson of Union
get the call for first team honors.
THE GUARDS
The outstanding guards were few
and far apart. While most of the

ARTICLE No. 16
The English players adopted the
informatorv double some time ago, but
they are still more or less inexperienced
in their use of this interesting conven
tion. As a result many articles devoted
to this convention are written by their
best players and many of them are
' most interesting. Here are some ex
1 tracts from one of the best that con
tains mighty fine advice for our own
plavers to follow:
“Have you ever realized how otten
plavers think that an ‘Informatorv
Double’ has been successful when in
fact it made no difference? Z bids
‘One No-Trump’; A doubles, \ says,
. ‘No Bid’; B, ‘Two Spades,’ and makes
game. A pats himself on the back in
sell-congratulation for his double; he
■ does not realize that even if he had
. said ‘No Bid’ B would still have bid
: : ‘Two bpadcs’. In the majority pf cases
1 where a plaver doubles ‘One No
Trump,’ and his partner makes a bid
which achieves contract or even game,
the partner would have made his bid
without the encouragement of the
■ ‘Informatorv Double’.
* “The writer suggests extreme cau
tion in the double of ‘One No-Trump .
It Z deals and bids ‘One No-1 rump,
and A holds a ‘No-Trump’ hand, he
should, in the majority of cases, pass
ia the hope either that B will make a
bid if his hand justifies it, or that if B
1 p^ses. A’s cards will prove sufficiently
• good to prevent Z from making game.
The use of the Tnformatory Double’
by A depends upon (a) the score, (b)
the nature of A s hand and (c) his
1 knowledge of Z. .
! i Z Y are 20 or more up in rubber
game, or even in any game, and Z bids
. ‘One No-Trump’ anclA holds a ‘No
Trump’ hand, A should double. The
1 score is of importance, for Z wins the
game if he muKe? his contract. A
snould, therefore, definitely command
B to hid, even though B’s cards are ;
useless, anil the side may fall. But A
should be sun-, before doubling, ihat
he has a ‘No-Trump’ hand. The test
question to put to himself is, 'If 1 had
been dealer, would 1 nave bid. One
No-Trump’ on this hand?’; and it the
answer is ‘ Yes,’ let him double.
“There are occasions when the na
ture of A’s har d justifies him in doub
ling Z'3 ‘One No-Trump’, irrespective
of the score. It is imoorsiole to ic~l
with this in a short article, except: bv
means of an example. Z bids Or:
No-TriiiTip’. .Vs hand is Spades, A. y,
x x; Hearts, K, J, x, M Diamonds,
0, 10, x, x; Clubs, y. T he first thought
that comes into A’s mind is that '■ >
‘No-Trump* hand consists chiefly at a
long and solid suit of l_lubs, and ii th.s
is so, A cannot be sure that by 1 inj
low he can save the game. He should
therefore doable in the ho; >0 hai^ t
will bid ‘Two’ of one of the ma;o.- suit .
Readers will doubtless grasn the idea
which lies behind ihis example.
“But in every phrase of the gar e
knowledge cf ones partner or ■ ■
opponents is of the utmost- i moorl anc \
Can you not all call to mind one t
more players concerning whom, whin .
he bids !0ne No-Trump,’ you km w
that he will deliver the poor’s. He hoi-is
an 16 carat Une No-frump hand, i a
the other hand, you can visu.dize some
whose 'One No-Trump' has oiten not
much gold and a lot of alloy. ^ on can
have a gamble on a fellow of the Inti ;r
kind; in the rubber game he mav <>e
taking a chance and if his jxirtner
holds nothing and you and your part
ner have good hands, a double of ‘O >e
No-Trump’ left in may yield you 3'>0
or 400 above; and is there any more
enjoyable moment in the game than
when you penalize the dealer in this
way?” ;

No •score, first game. (1) Suppose i
bids one spade and A bids one n<
> trump. What should Y bid? (2) Sup
pose Y bids two hearts and B bid
three diamonds, what should Z bid
(3) Suppose Z passes, A bids three n<
trumps and all pass, what should ^
open? (4) Suppose Y opens the thre
of spades, what should Z play?
Solution: Y’s bid of two hearts witl
this hand is correct, but, if made, ^
should determine to help his partner'
spade bid'on the next round. Bid ii
this way, Z is given the choice of a tr]
for game in hearts or spades, whicheve
suits his hand the better. If B bid:
three diamonds, Z should bid threi
spades. His hand is sc strong that hi
can afford to rebid despite Y’s denial
Whether Z bids three spades or passes
A should bid three no tramps. Y ii
now in a position where he can do on<
of two things: either bid four spades oi
pass in the nope that he can defeat th<
three no trump bid. Some players might
double three no trumps, but such a
double is a gamble and can harr”y be
considered sound. Needless to* say,
Y Z can make four spades or can defeat
the three no trump bid by five tricks.
' Suppose Y passes the three no trump
bid. V\ hat is his proper opening? With
three spades to the queen, Y should
open the trey of spades and Z should
play the king. A should win this trick
and lead the queen of diamonds. Z
should win this trick, lead his king of
clubs to indicate his re-entry and then
lead the deuce of spades. Y must win
the next two spade tricks and place Z
in the lead with a club. Y Z thus must
win nine tricks.
Suppose, however, that Z, when Y
led the trey of spades, refused to play
his king.'A would win the first trick
with the jack and thus be able to make
• his bid. The lesson to draw from this
play is: “Never finesse against your
partner.” The foregoing represents the
\ different bidding and play at duolicate.
> You can figure out for yourself <.ne
- tremendous differences that resulted.

[ bid two spades, what should A do? (1)
If A and Y passed B bid three dia
| monds and Z passed, what should A
; now do?
Solution: (1) A should pass the two
spade bid. His hand is too weak to
’ justify a rebid at this stage. H) If B
’ should bid three diamonds, however,
; and Z passes, A’s position is entirely '
different. Such a bid by B should indi
cate a set-updiarrend suit anti some- .
thing on the side. The fact that Y could
not assist Z’s ciub bid and that Z
wasn’t strong enough to rebid m; ':es •
it probable that A B have a stGpjtcr in .
the club suit in their combiner! hands.
A is justified, therefore, in bidding
three no trumps. All passed and Y *
opened the jack of clubs. B’s hand was -
as follows:
Hearts — K, 7 ^
Clubs —10, 8, 5,2
Diamonds — A, K, Q, J, 10, 9
Spades — 4
Needless to say. A B scorer! four -
odd at no trump and thus gained over .
those players who played the hand at
diamonds. There is no game at dia- T
monds; in fact, A B can score only *
two odd. Y Z will make the ace king of "*
clubs, ace of spades and two trumps as i
Y held the eight six of diamonds and
w'as thus able to overtrump A twice. *
The hand is a good example of clever *
I deductive bidding.
.M
men played sturdy games at this
post, there was little brilliance in
evidence. Most of the guards were
strong on the defense, but lacked
that knack of pulling from a line
and showing the aggressiveness that
upsets the opposition on many oc
casions. While some teams' style of
play do not call for this, there were
a lew players whose work and worth
in this department cannot be denied.
After weighing the work and worth
of men in these capacities, Oliver of
Va. State and Bogle of Smith were
given the nod as first choice.
This position fell far short of
producing formidable centres. The
play in this department was very
poor. Some men looked good at the
oeginning, but fell down under hard
knocks and steady blows. The selec
tion of Lewis of Va- State fills the
pivot position on the first eleven,
i^ewis showed the best in this de
partment. He was off slow, but came
along with a rush, a rush that stamp
ed him as a coming pivotal man.
THE QUARTERBACKS
This was another position that
furnished few candidates of true
worth. We have DeBerry of A. and
T., Cropp of Va. State; Murphy of
St. Paul; Hall of Howard; H. Har
ris and Bean of Hampton; Bo Wil
liams of Morgan and Maxie Robin
son of Union. These men showed
the work of most o fthem was steady,
the best during the season’s play and
For all-round play in this important
position, Maxie Robinson of Union
displayed the best and he got the post
as general of the first team. i
THE HALFBACKS
There many good halfbacks, but
tber* were few excellent ones. Ti
were Smith and LaMar of Lincoln;
Conrad and Wilson of Morgan; Dab
ney and Howe of Va. State; Guess
and Weatherford of Hampton; Als
ton of N. C. College and Armistead
of Union. For all-round play and
versatility, Conrad of Morgan was
the most impressive, followed close
ly by Marshall of Howard. Both were
wonderful defensive and offensive,
backs with plenty of speed and dash,
good on forward passing and equal
ly good on the receiving end. They
possessed the qualifications to place
them on the first eleven and they
were given their posts on their merits
and worth to their squads.
THE FULLBACKS
There were some good fullbacks
roaming the fields and their work
branded them as capable preformers
in this position. The list offered Har
man of Lincoln; Bounds of Va. State;
H icks of Morgan and one or two
others, but the work of Bounds was
of a high degree, both offensively
and defensively, and when the smoke
and din of battle died in the distance
hills, this Va. State preformer tops
the list as fullback.
While some may contend that it
seems plausibe that a championship
team should have a larger repre
sentation on the first team, one must
not lose sight of the fact that it is
also possible for a championship
team to have only a few really out
standing players. Morgan presented
a championship team, but only one
or two men stood heads and shoul
ders above the rest. The play of
these men, the general high spirits
of the team and the cooperation and
support of the student body account
ed, in a large measure for the Bears’
success.
The most valuable player to his
team during a season of play is one
hard assignment to hand anyone. In
trying to decide the most valuable to
his team one must try to picture
just how that team would get along
wihout him. There are any number
of men valuable to their team, but
their absence from the line-up sel
dom, if ever, cripples their teams.
When it narrows down to picking a
man who was of real value to his
eleven, Marshall stands out as an im
portant cog in the Howard machin
ery. Marshall’s versatility and high
brand of play during the season
made him valuable to the Bison
squad and he gets the berth as the
most valuable man to his team.
Since the membership list of the
C. I. A. A. has been increased to
twelve schools the All-Star Commit
tee decided to have three teams this
year instead of two. This was decid
ed upon in order to do justice to the
large number of players whose work
was of value during the season.
Make Changes To
Improve Standard
The C. I. A. A. met in its twentieth
annual session at Lincoln University,
December 12th and 13th, 1930.
Livingstone College was admitted
to membership in the Association,
making the thirteenth member.
The Association took a definite
stand against allowing free board to
be given to those students who are
members of the various athletic
squads, but who do not regularly
board in the school dining room. If,
after daily practice, such students
eat in the dining room, they- must
pay the regular price paid by the
boarding students.
Beginning with 1J931 only men of
collegiate grade will be allowed to
take part in intercollegiate athletics.
Exceptions were made in the case of
St. Paul because of Junior College
status and of those men who played
as third year academy students and
won their letters in 1930. They will
be allowed to compete as fourth year
academy students but no other
academy men after this season will
be allowed to represent p. I. A. A.
institutions in athletics.
A new elegibility rule on partici
pation was adopted—Participation in
any part of any game or event shall
count a year of C. I. A. A. participa
