An extra large supply of these dolls has just been received, and if history repeats itself they will
not last very long. Don't be late. Get your doll in time. Keinenibor there are four different sizes.
No girl is happier than Avhen she has a beautiful doll.
Collier's Weekly, one of the greatest weekly papers published in the United States, in speaking of
ese dolls, said: "There is more involved than appears on tlie surface in encouraging little Negro
girls to clasp in their arms pretty copies of themselves. The white race dosen't monopolize all the
beauty and lovableness, and it will be a happy day when this is realized."

Atlanta. Ga. -October The "Ti
mers" of Baptist College played the
second game of (lie season this after
noon with the City Y. M. C. A. The
"Tigers" .were greatly surprised when
they found the city team so strong. In
the first half the battle was hard and
fierce.;; but in the last half th'e city
Fooys grew weak, and the "Tigers" ran
'the score up to 27. The Marooner's
goal was not even threatened at any
-stage of the game. The principle fea
ture of the game was the hard tackling
by the Y. M. C. A. The "Tigers." as
usual, played great ball. For the Y.
M. C. A., Franklin and Marion were
-vastly, the stars. It is always a hard
job to pick A. B. C's stars. I think
"Vic" Turner, the Huberts and Wade
-were the stars in this game. How
ever, old "Sandy" Jackson, known to
many as "Kid Sandy," played great
ball and because of that I make special
mention of him. The "Tigers" miss
Dickson their old guard who is now
playing with Meharry. Of course,
"Gene" Allen, a former member of the
"Champs." and who is now at Howard
University, will be ever remembered.

Something Doing on Bennett Field.
"Work, work, work!" and "unend
ing toil" seem to be the watchword of
the Fisk squad. Nothing is being
trusted to chance, for the men have
had it beaten into them by ceaseless
work and suggestions that fail 'Is on

and that the heaviest batallion is made

doubt the strongest; team west of the
mountains, and you may well search
their record for clean t football. There
s sure to be "something doing" on
Bennet Field.
"In the second half. State Normal
fumbled a punt and this enabled Tus:
kegee to get near their goal and with
only one minute to play Tuskegee exe
cuted a beautiful pass. In the next
play Tuskegee carried the ball over for
a touchdown. The game ended 5-0,
Tuskegee having failed to kick goal.
The Normal boys were highly enter
tained by 'the Tuskegeans and though
the city 'boys lost, it was in such a
hard fought conest that they can feel
honored by the fight they made."
Tuskegee is to meet the strong
Atlanta Baptist College team on the
fourteenth of the month.
Tuskegee Defeats State Normal.
Special to the Globe.
Montgomery. Ala., Nov. 3. The
schools in this district are as inter
ested in football as ever and it would
seem from some of the contests played
each one is represented by a strong
team. Last Saturday, October 31, the
boys of the State Normal School, of
this city, stacked up against the husky
representatives of Tuskegee.

The game to be played Saturday, Me
harry vs. Talladega, will no doubt be
a good one as both teams are strong
and confident of victory. Talladega
comes with a long string of scalps
dangling from her belt, and is very
anxious to take the coming game
from Meharry. This would add pres
tige to the team. Meharry, on the
other hand, is compelled to take this
game to hold her place in the football
world a3 one of the strongest teams
in the country. If all reports are
true, she will have the time of her life
to down the boys from Alabama. The
team comes well drilled in the new
game, and with as fast a set of backs
as she has ever had; in short, noth
ing has been left undone to make the
team a good one. Meharry will have
to play some good hard football to
There seems to be plenty doing
on Bennett Field. Every day Coach
Giles has his boys out early carrying
them through a stiff practice, and they
seem to be rounding into fairly good
shape. His back field Is giving him
considerable trouble. He will have to
develop a new man to fill the place left
open by King, as it Is hardly likely
he will be able to play again thU sea

Job, for he was by far the best man

will again have a chance to see the
big boy in harness. r
Despite the fact that .Coach Giles has
only light material on hand with
which to work, he will have a won
derful team. And when they play the
A. B. C. boys on the"; 14th, ' they will
present an aggregation that will be
hard to down. While the boys are
light they are also fast and, above all,N
they have that old Fisk spirit that i
will keep them fighting until the last. I
The Globe man was out several days '
ago to look at the team In motion.
While they are a bit . light they have l
speed to burn, and it is safe to say J
Fisk has never had ,a . faster team.
Coach Giles has also given some at-
tentlon to the forward pass, and it is if
a common thing to; see some of thef .'
boys throw the ball from1 ten to fifty!
yards. . . ' i
Fisk will play her first varsity game ,
on November 14; and until then it v,$tl
be hard to get a line on the team. But
there is no doubt but that she will be ,
strong, and that Fisk will still be in i
the running.
