bearing and meeting President
Hutrhini on January 22.
About a week later, January 80th,
a group of us gathered at the West
Side Y. M. C. A- where two former
Berea men are secretaries. ,
The Berea picture, which recalled
many pleasant memories of our
school days, was shown.
After the pictures we had a jolly
time renewing old friendships and
playing games that we used to play
in Berea.

Gymnasium from burning to the
The gymnasium caught from the
combustion of a stove. Late Thurs
day evening a lot of coal had been
poured into the stove and all the
drafts shut off. The stove held un
til about 6 o'clock Friday morning,
when the explosion came and the fire
started. The beaver board lining in
the gymnasium encouraged the spread
of the flames, and it took fearless
work to save the walls. It is esti
mated the building can be put in
shape for use again at a cost of
about $450. The gymnasium equip
ment which was destroyed by the
fire is estimated at $300.
A very happy surprise was given
Mr. and Mrs. Osborne last evening

Oratorical Contest
Last Monday evening the Home
Oratorical Contest was held in our
Chapel. Kappa Sigma was repre
sented by Hugh O. Porter and Noel
D. Moran; Alpha Zeta by John H.
Welsh and Randolph L. VanScoyk;
and Phi Delta by Seth C. White and
Robert A. Brown. It was a contest
consisting of the best class of ora
tions we have had for some time.
The speaking of all waa commend
able. John H. Welsh of the senior
class took first place. His subject
was, "The New Conscience." He
made a very forcible and convincing
speech of it Seth White took sec
ond place with "America's Greatest
Conflict" for his subject Third
sale Which will
place was awarded to Randolph Van
Scoyk. We hope that Mr. Welsh can bring
back the laurels from the State con
test as did our man last year.'
This is our first contest of the year,
but we hope to meet the debates
which are before us with as much in
terest as have been inter-society de
bates heretofore. This will be our
first year for inter-collegiate debating.

The Academy
The boys of our Academy certainly
do know how to do the handsome
thing-at least some do. Thursday
morning seventeen of them assembled
quickly at the Boone Tavern to see
Dr. Stockdale off on the 3:27 and to
bid him God speed. Incidentally
there was not a person more pleased
than Dr. Stockdale and our genial
President when the boya received
them at the bus with a genuine
whole-hearted and whole-voiced col
lege yell which nearly awakened the
whole town. Rex Ballard, as spokes
man for the boys, presented the doc
tor with a fine enlsrged picture of
Berea, taken by Dr. Rexford Ray
mond and called "The Promise Land."
In his neat little speech, Mr. Ballard
said that we all hoped the doctor
would soon come back, that we all
were profoundly grateful to him for
his coming, and that we would never
forget him. Then Dr. Stockdale
asked the boys to sing with him -the

The competitive spirit of Ameri
can sDorts is not a modern innova
tion and to be ruthlessly thrown
aside aa debasing and of no value in
character building. The spirit of
rompet'tion In play and sports has
stood the test of youth thruout the
ages. The chnrlbt races of the an
cients, the foot-races, snd weight
throwing contests of the Greeks and
Romans, tests of skill In srehery and
wrestling among the Teutons and
barbarians of the wilderness, the
flower of knighthood throuout the
Middle Ages, and I might continue
on indefinitely along these lines down
to the present; all of these show that
the spirit of competition is not new
and our insatiate desire to manifest
this spirt makes us but the heirs of
our ancertors.
There are people today who dis
parage the worth of competitive
sports. The spirit of competition of
the American games has made the
American youth the most progres
sive and energetic in the world
Yet there are some people who would
advocate labor as a means of exer
cise and recreation. I want to evalu
ate in the course of this discussion
the comparative values of labor and
the spirit of play in competition. Do
not think that I would disparage the
value of labor, but solitary labor as
a means of exercise is to be tabooed.
No sport or recreation of any kind
in my estimation can outweigh a
ci ty. If h.toing the old folks at
home is your assigned job, then do
it as the following article is not ap
plicable as far as you are concerned.
If your playmates are foul-mouthed
and ungoverned, the solitary woodpile
is far better than the gridiron. But
my remarks are not confined to ma
jor sports of the gridiron, but they
are much greater in scope, taking in
play as a means of health and recre
ation. The hunger of play in children
and God pity the adults who don't
fiel this hunger quite frequently is
but a normal and universal tendency
which they have been so fortunate
to inherit The responsibility of our
social and moral life In large meas
ure depends upon those who wisely
minister to this need. The spirit of
play .permeates the animal life with
Its vitality, and exuberancy.
