Now Mexico, with her ancient In
dian peoples, her relics of tho Aztec

Navajo Indian reservation and tho
quaint puoblo villages of Isleta, Cia,

many others.
Tho Pueblos aro one of tho most
romarkablo and fascinating peoples
of thtf world. On all sides are ruins
and relics of the days of the Spanish
conquistadores, and tho city of Al

for the Indian handiwork, their mar
velous blankets, silver work, Pueblo
pottery and so forth, and It Is to this
city that artists fropi all over the
world come en route to tho. interior to
study the remains of past civiliza
tions, two extinct, and one, that of
the Pueblos, maintained unchanged
for centuries but soon to disappear.
As our train stopped near a Pueblo
village scores of Indians, young and
old, came to the coaches and offered
their work for sale, and many dol
lars' worth of pottery and other sou

artistic design and finish, and was
very eagerly sought by the tourists.

Tho Wolverine fool ball 'team of
Toledo "skinned" the Perrysburg
team by a score of 9 to 0. This is the
way they did it: By all legality as to
rules, the first 7 points that were
scored by Toledo should bo wiped out,
becauso tho points wero mado by an
illegal forward pass. It was very
plain to be seen by everybody there
that understood foot ball. The other
two points should not have been al
lowed as tho Perrysburg man was
forced over his own goal line by To

that In tho futuro all vital plays will

How pleased is the tourist to meet

a pleasure to meet two fellow passen

Dear Mr. Blito: I really feel
guilty fqr not having written you be

not granted any spare moments for
Life at Hiram has been one grand
time (Including study). TheY. M.
C. A. and Y. W. C. A. here make a
special effort to have tho students
foci at home and not get "home
sick" and there have been very few
cases so far (but not ME, however).
On tho evening of September 19
the Y. M. C. A. held a reception for
the new students at the Y. M. C. A.
building. This has always been
known as the "Stag," and was one
glorious time from beginning to end.
Several impromptu speeches by the
faculty and the students, inter
spersed with music and readings,
constituted the program, which
closed with refreshments. On Sep
tember 18 the Y. W. C. A. enter
tained for the young ladies, which
was the same as the Y. M. C A. so
far as I know, for I did not attend
and therefore cannot explain it.
Tho big event of the week, how
ever, was the "joint" reception of

The really big event of the year at
Hiram Is tho annual flag rush be

classes. The Sophomore class draw
up the rules and make the challenge
to the Freshmen and after the fac

Sophs select a fresh, slippery pole
and "pjant" it in the. campus with

object Is for the Freshmen to re

Early on the' morning of Septem
ber -21 the event took place. The
Freshmen were summoned by tho
sound of the college bell and when
all details were explained they gath
ered on tho campus prepared for thu
"light" and attack on the Sophs, who
were guarding "their" pole.
At the crack cf the pistol the
Freshmen rushed in and each
grabbed a Soph and quickly threw
him to the ground and proceeded to
hold him there. When all were held,
one of the Freshmen attempted to
climb the pole but was unable to
reach the top and was forced to
descend. After several other at
tempts one man succeeded In reach
ing the top and, holding on by his
feet and legp, ho ripped tho Sophs'
colors down and nailed up the brown
and whito of the class of 191G.
All this was accomplished within
about 15 minutes but the hard part
now comes as the Sophs must be
kept away from the polo (or replac
ing their own colors) for tho space
of one hour and a half, Here tho
fun cam'e in for the onlookers in
watching three or four Froshmen
sitting on a Soph whiio tho latter
was trying to gain his freedom so
that ho might climb the pole ami re
place his colors. While all this was
going on the girls of tho two 'classes

In the evening there was a banquet
in the parlors of the 'church, given
by the Y. P. B., with the state offi

this a grand diamond medal contest
was held.
