We must confess we near lost our head in witnessing our first game of basket ball, which our boys very spiritedly played with Hornbeak on the home ground. For the life, of us we could hardly keep from help ing put the ball thru. It is a very exciting sport, giving as it does so much exercise for the boys. There is some objection to the uniforms, but if such knockers in arctics and overcoats would try this fierce con test we believe they would change their opinion and in the same breath call for the electric fans to be turned on. Athletics give the boys a chance to stand eight year.i of schooling that often in the unnatural environ ment for this clement causes a nerv ous breakdown, T. T., or' just tired and qui:. As a member of the Book Club we have rung the changes on "Main Street," by Lewi3, and "Her Father's Daughter," by. Gene S. Porter. The first we found unique and modern to a point in a restless circle of events in organizations of uplift for the progress of small town3. No doubt our clubs, circles, societies, lodges and chapters are overlapping till we are like a train on a curve, liable to meet ourselves coming back on va rious propositions. Be this as it may, our intentions are measured by our Christian citizenship. Can we be far wrong? Yet the plot of "Main Street," applicable to any small town, is long drawn out, covering, if we remember correctly, four hundred and fifty pages. "Her Father's Daughter" begins exceedingly well, and, while interlined thruout with nature's heartsease, depicts more tragedy than any of this popular author's novels. Linda, the heroine, associate of her father in exploring the canyons of our western slope, is a daringly independent and lovable character. Too candid and truthful, perhaps, for us people of the East that bring our daughters up in a coyness that Linda would deem com monplace. We, will do well to think deeply on Japanese aggressive ness as brought out by Mra. Porter. :-.-5 Play at Clayton.
