James M Wood president of Stephens
College spoke on the place of the lay
man in the church When a person
joins the church he obligates himself
to place whatever his particular talent
may be at the disposal of the church
Mr Woods explained Young people are
not built to go to church and be merely
sponges they must be trained for some
activity if the church is to hold them
Instead of preaching against what young
people da more would be accomplished
if the same amount of intellectual ef
fort were spent in planning better things
for them to do

Second Game Ends in Favor of
Tonsorial Artists
The eight inning baseball game be
tween the Barbers and Bankers yester
day resulted in a victory for the Bar
bers 19 to 18 Tlie battery for the Bar
bers was Roberts and Vaughn while
Wisdom Sapp and Luke did the honors
for the Bankers
The Barbers being used to hitting
heavy considering the price of haircuts
and shaves knocked the Bankers for 13
The only tips the Barbers received
yesterday afternoon were the tip ups they
got when they crowded the baselines and
the Bankers ran over them in efforts
to steal bases
Au Instance of clever stealing by the
Bankers occurred in the fifth inning when
they were at bat One of their number
was attempting to steal third while the
Barbers pitcher was delivering the ball
toward the catcher the catcher threw
the ball toward the third -baseman but
ir connected instead with the batters
bead and fouled into the grandstand
Tlie impact sounded as though the catch
er bad hit the batters bat and there
was mucn argument as to whether the
runner should go back o second on a
foul ball or go out on account of
the ball being interfered with by the
batter The umpire ruled that the catch
er could not act as -pitcher without the
consent of the captain ot the team so
tlie runner stayed on third and the bat-
ter caressed the back of his head till
he struck out
The Barbers started the game with
sia runs in tlie first Inning and led un
til the sixth frame when the banks got
tight and allowed ho runs for two
Much advice was given by the bench
ed players ot both team along with the
aduce oered by the grandstand Since it
was so hard to identify- the players in
their many colored uniforms no box
score of the frolic was kept Virgil

When the ancient architecture of the
Chinese made its way to the West it was
put to a valuable use Evidences of this
fact may be found in the Chinese tower
over the White Eagle Dairy
When the Mongols invaded China they
brought with them their tents which
were held up with poles at the corners
forming a roof which was low in the
middle but having upward turned cor
ners Whert the population became set
tled the rat of wood was adopted for
building purposes but the lent style was
adopted with it
The modern use tor this tower like
structure has been turned to the scientific
process of cooling the water for the use
of the plant Each tier and there are
ten of them has a sieve vessel beneath it
The water in the basement of the
building has one main pipe which reach
es to the rooCaof the building where the
water is forced out of the pipe and as it
falls passes through the sieve vessels
which are under each tier over pipes
containing ammonia The water then
flows into a tank in the basement cooled
This is the explanation of the Chinese
tower over tlie Wlute Eagle Dairy ac
cording to B L Allen whp makes the
ices and creams for this concern
