BEREA LOSES TO U. OF K.
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
REVIEW OF GIRLS' BASKET
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

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
But violets first with glad blue eyes
Come to greet spring from win
Soon leaf and blossom hang their
At the vernal blush of peach bio
In valleys and forested hills,
Of spring verdure and violet glow.
In fields, meadows and woodlands
The first flower of hill and plain
Comes to break winter's spell of
To hearts bring hope and faith
Can it be that flowers and grass
Yearly rise and so surely bloom
That man must sleep as the years
While violets rise from their tombT

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
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

The fourth annual debate between

T IS THE FISHING SEASON
The chilly days of winter
Are melting into spring.
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.

Miss Dorothy Bell, who has taught
school in Foundation and added so
much to the work and spirit of the
department, returns this week to her
home in Cleveland, O. She came for
the winter term only and could not
be persuaded to remain longer be
cause of other duties. Foundation
would like to keep her. 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
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.
