It has a student body of about 500, with nearly 3,000 living graduates.

Decision 2 to 1 Berea's first intercollegiate debate, which was held last evening in the College Chapel, resulted in the de feat of the Berea team by a close margin. The judges rendered a de cision of two to one in favor of the University of Kentucky. The question debated was: Re solved, That the present Dillingham Law be retained as a permanent measure, namely, that three per cent of each nationality which was resi dent in the country during 1910 be the only annual quota allowed to en ter the United States. The Univer sity upheld the affirmative and Be rea the negative. The University team was composed of former Berea studepts, who have many friends in Berea College, and both the audience and debaters showed a fine spirit thruout the contest. Both teams made a splendid show ing, and the audinece was apparently on the fence as to who would win until the decision was announced. While the judges were out, the Berea College quartette entertained with a beautiful song, and following the debate the visitors and students were given a short reception in Ladies Hall. REVIEW OF GIRLS' BASKET BALL SEASON The College Girls Team was al most the champions of the year. No one of the Secondary Schools could possibly beat the College team alone. However, in the final game of the season, the College girls dorided they wanted to work for a victory and so the three Secondary Schools com bined their forces and produced a winning team. Thru cooperation and union these schools did what had been absolutely impossible for any one of them to do alone. In union there is strength. May every school in Berea and every individual in every school unite to make a better Berea Thn scores were as follows: Feb. 20, College 48.

SPRING VIOLETS Spring is rising from winter graves In woodlands, brooks, and rivulets The earth is bursting into waves Of myriads of spring violets. Countless millions of flowers rise, While meadows their tapestries spread. But violets first with glad blue eyes Come to greet spring from win ter's bed. Soon leaf and blossom hang their frills At the vernal blush of peach bio In valleys and forested hills, Of spring verdure and violet glow. In fields, meadows and woodlands deep, The first flower of hill and plain Comes to break winter's spell of sleep . To hearts bring hope and faith again. Can it be that flowers and grass Yearly rise and so surely bloom That man must sleep as the years pass, While violets rise from their tombT - Hoyte Hoover Get your Tanlac where they've got it. Berea Drug Co. A Scientific Systematization of Knowledge for a Control of Life By J. ARTHUR THOMSON, in "The Control of Life." ... aaas aaasasaaaai It is no lotijp-r the mere diffusion of knowledge, invvtivf of any other aim, that is the goal of education. A control of life in practically all its functions is at least a potentiality of applied science. What is distinctly modern is the idea of an all around utilization of science as a biwis for action, the determined attempt to substitute the rational for the empirical, the growing habit of focussing scientific inquiry on prat ticul puzzles, the recognition of scientific investigation as an agency likely to produce well-bring as well as enlightenment It it man's part to continue building up a scientific systematization of knowl edge which will im-ren singly form the basis for a control of life. For lifs is not for science, but science for life. Science can dt much to remove the shackles which inhibit the higher a Iveiiture of the luimnn spirit. . . . Many of the shadows and dis hannonics of human life can be got rid of wlieu good will joins hands with science. Normal School L. K. Rice, an old Normal student, is back with us again. Mr. Rice is a graduate of 1921, but is back to take some work in the advanced Nor mal course. It looks good to see the old baseball men coming back for the spring term. L. K. has done some mighty good work in right field in the days gone by for the Normal School. Mr. Campbell, a baseball man, is in school for the spring term also. C. R. Harralson, possibly bet ter known as Rube, is in school for the spring term. We are extremely glad to have Rube with us again. The play that was given in the Tabernacle last Saturday evening by Excelsior and Philomathca literary societies was a great success. It was a play that required much work and time to give it. with the skill with which it was given. There is no doubt but what every member of the large audience enjoyed the eve ning very much. There was always a hearty laugh from the audience when "Sam and his wife" appeared on the stage. Mr. John M. Wilson, a Normal graduate of 1921, was visiting some of his friends in the Nor mal School Saturday and Sunday. Mr. Wilson is teaching in the Bap tist Institute r.t Barbourville, Ky.

In all the budding treetops The happy robins sing. The ice has left the fountain And oat among the hills The woods are full of violets And nodding daffodills. And now 't is fishing season, And with a line and hook I'd like to go a fishing Up in a mountain brook. I'd love to sit in dreaming When pain and cares are light; I love the glowing pleasure When fish begin to bite. Sure,' 't is the fishing season, And O my! how I wirh That I could leave my studies And take a little fish. Arthur Thomas A LINE 0' CHEER By John Ktndnck Bangs. THE LIGHT-BEARR YOC c annot b the sun.

She has made a host of friends in Berea who regret that she must go. The three Foundation literary so cieties held a joint meeting in Vo cational Chapel Saturday night. An interesting program was given. A STUDENTS THOUGHTS Do not ask me what I'm seeing As I watch the sunset glow? And hear the students' k'tehter As they wander to and fro? I see away in the future, When these boys and girls are grown, And they gather in the harvest From the seed that they have sown Some will reap with glad rejoicing, For their harvest will be great; Others will be disappointed But, oh, then twill be too late To call bark the years they wasted, When they had the chance to win, And they let the Devil lead them. Lead them off in vice and sin. We should grasp each flying moment Of the years that come and go; For the Bible plainly teaches. We shall reap what e'er we sow. Help us to be Ktronir and faithful, Not look back, but loo ahead, With a faith that makes us labor, For "Faith without works is dead." Help us set a good example, For the ones that watch our deeds, If we want a golden harvest. We muxt scatter golden seeds. Help us to fulfil our mission, Fre we rest beneath the sod, Do our very best and always lieave the result alone with God. He who painted all the lilies Sees the sparrows when they fall, He will help his own dear children, Ho will hear us when we call. We should always seek his guidance In each task we try to do. Ask his blessings on our labor He will always see us through. We should live and work for others, With our own lives free from sin For the way to serve our Master Is to serve our fellowmen. When we see some one in trouble, lie it woman, man or child, Muybe it will lift their burden If we look at them and smile. There is work for all God's childrea They bhciuld do without a frowyi; Gladly take your cross and bear it Till you're ready for your crown.
