Kla-how-yah Huskies!
We are glad to see you back again.
It seems as if this B.C.-Saskatchewan
tussle for the Hardy Cup ls going to
become traditional If the annual visiting keeps up much longer.
I can remember way back In the
old days when men were men around
this campus and the Saskatchewan
Huskies were renowned as handsome,
big shouldered (several axe handles
across—some ot our co-eds here said)
and all-round distinguished pipe-
Yes, those were the days. . . . But
there is a story I would like to tell
about way back then which might
Interest not a few, and which might
also serve as a friendly warning to
touring oval-chasers.
There was a certain Saskatchewan
scribe by the name of "Rusty" MacDonald—'member, you lugs I Well, ln
case you don't, here's the story. Listen, learn, and remember that comparisons are odious when lt comes to
"Rusty" was really a fine young fellow with fair curls ... a big, broad,
affable chap. I know that because I
met him this summer over a welner
. . . but I'll tell you about that later.
That ls the climax.
..Anyway, "Rusty", as I have said,
was a fine young fellow, and he had
a way with the ladles. He asked local
co-eds what they thought about football players. Thus being the representative of the boys he then proceeded to annex the attentions of the
aforesaid ladles. Before he left for
back home he was quite smitten, here
and there, and the word somehow got
back to Saskatoon that the boys
thought that the B.C. girls were more
Venusque than the hometown girls
on the Saskatchewan campus. Thereafter, the prairie gentlemen had
quite a time squaring themselves
with the girl friends baok home.
The boys,-when informed ln a wire
from the girls ln Saskatoon that unless an explanation was forthcoming
pronto all dates for the ladles Informal at home would be cancelled, finally broke down and confessed that
all this was Just a line which they
had used to advantage on the girls
both ln Edmonton and in Vancouver.
Finally, the gallant Rusty, having
arrived home, declared, "It was a
swell gag. I got to know all the smart
looking U.B.C. co-eds by asking them
—in my official capacity, of course—
what they thought about the rugby
Meanwhile, yours truly, the Ubyssey intervarslty news chief at that
time, got wind of these happenings
and soon the wires were burning . . .
red hot.
Things went from bad to worse,
and the ladies out here began to
wonder. One co-ed had discussed with
"Rusty" the possibilities of getting an
exchange scholarship. Disillusionment
was rife. Eventually, our editorial
friends on the Saskatchewan Sheaf
asked If, perhaps, the matter had not
gone far enough, and that was that.
The last stanza of this hilarious
adventure occurred this last August
near Saskatoon. I was introduced to
the honored "Rusty" at a beach party. He had forgotten the Incident, but
everyone else evidently knew about
the story.
For at least five minutes he did not
realize what lt was all about. And
everyone watched expectantly. Then,
finally the skeleton was pulled out of
the closet . . . and . . .
Well, the weiners were good, and
the party was swell. We laughed a
lot about the affair, and I found
"Rusty"  quite  an  entertaining   chap.
"I sure got into hot water there,"
he said. "You boys certainly roasted

Students Burn
Hitler In Effigy
SASKATOON, Oct. 20— Highlight
of the pep rally held here this week
by students of the University of Saskatchewan was the burning of Hitler's  effigy.
The straw-stuffed breast of the 14
foot effigy bore a large swastika,
while about six feet of the image consisted of an amazing likeness of der
Fuhrer's head, complete with drooping forelock, pained expression and
a parched mouth under the well-
known Charlie Chaplin misconception  of a moustache.

For the first time ln years, football
fever swept the campus. New deal ln
Intercollegiate football and efficient
organization by officials culminated
In a pep-rally on Tuesday night and
a grand parade overtown on Wednesday to welcome the visiting Huskies.
A huge bonfire was lighted for the

survey of musical opinion on the
campus. "The jitterbugs make a
very poor showing around here,"
she  added.

Back to their lectures only five

The lords of the campus, the
haughty sophomores, forced green-

as to sentiments of the students on

"In 1013 Dr. Wesbrook was appointed to take over the organisation of the new university and by

was limited on the old site, the university then consisting of one permanent building loaned by the Oeneral Hospital and a set of wooden
buildings. Registration was not high,
though there were 870 students the
flrst year. Many courses were offered leading to degrees in three faculties.

One of the moat delightful experiences to be enjoyed by a
University student body is playing host to students of another
similar institution. This week, we, the inhabitants of B.C. campus
incorporated, entertain not only our own graduates and alumnae,
but also a visiting Canadian football team from the University
of Saskatchewan.
Homecoming week is a time for great celebration, much sentimentalizing and as many athletic exhibitions of any type as can
be crammed successfully into five days.
College spirit, intangible as it may be, should at least be
faintly noticeable during this week. Let us as merry scholars
show that we get some measure of happiness from supporting our
own teams in their games, from watching a visiting team battle
our invincible warriors, from entertaining our alumnae—in short
from living a real University life.
And now at the first opportunity the Ubyssey, on behalf of
the students of the Alma Mater Society of the University of B.C.,
and on behalf of its own staff extend a very warm welcome to the
University of Saskatchewan football players, to the Graduates,
and to the Alumnae of the University of B.C. May your stay on
this Campus be a pleasant, and perhaps unforgettable one.
(From The Oshawa Times, Ootober 5)
That old busybody, Dame Rumor, has been having tlio time
of her life for the past few weeks. She is far from idle in peacetime, but then her stories hnve to compete with published news,
which is more accurate if less imaginative. In wartime, when some
small portion of the news is suppressed in the public interest, the
dear old lady does her best to satisfy a news-hungry populace.
She has a feminine scorn of technical details. Discovering the
Brcrrion in every harbor from Cape Horn to Spitsbergen, she overlooks the fact that many of these ports could not float a ship of
the Bremen's draught, Lmtely she discovered that the reason for
the sugar shortnge wns that the available supplies were being commandeered by munitions manufacturers for making explosives.
This is a plausible story, since the skill of organic chemists is no
doubt sufficient to eonvert the carbon of sugar into almost, any
other carbon compound. The flaw in tho story lies in the faot that
there are thousands of cheaper sources of carbon, whioh is the
commonest element in nature.
Such flaws do not worry Dame Rumor. Sho enn account for
tho sugar shortage in other ways. She knows for a fact that such
and such a firm is hoarding a secret reserve, that another firm was
fined thousands of dollars i'or the same offence. Point out that the
managers of tho firms in question have been spending sleepless
nights trying to cope with an abnormal demand for sugar and to
devise means of limiting individual purchases so that no customer
will suffer and Dame Rumor waves tho facts aside. Sho herself
has stored away as much as her pnntry will hold, but it novor
occurs to her that this might havo something to do with the situation.
The dame is a super-patriot. Sho has a garbled knowledge of
current events and not many weeks ago was loud in hor denunciations of Mr. Chamberlain. Now she delights in clamoring for the
internment of anyone who repents her own remarks. Particularly
is she delighted when her victim has a Germanic name. It is quite
irelevant that most German-Canadians were here long before
Hitler was heard of. Many, in fact, are descendants of U.E.L.
families. Dame Rumor would intern them all, if she did not have
them. shot.
Sometimes kindly, often malicious, always untrustworthy,
Dame Rumor will continue to thrive for the duration of the war.
Hor tongue will elaek with the speed of her own knitting noodles,
producing tales as grotesque ns some of the socks thnt sho will send
to the unfortunate troops. For both tales nnd socks, laughter is
the only antidote.
(From the Toronto Globe and Mail)
What intelligent young Canadians think about the menace of
Hitlerism is indicated by the thousands of undergraduates and
graduates of Canadian universities who every day are training to
take their places as leaders in the defense of tho Dominion. On
the front oampus of the University of Toronto any afternoon between 4 and (i o'eloek may be soon more than a thousand students
who are being drilled by the Canadian Officers' Training Corps in
the work of the Artillery, Engineers, Signals nnd Modieal Corps
to qualify ns lieutenants. In addition 500 university graduates are
undergoing similar training two days a week to brush up on military Hoionoe and fit themselves to piny their part  iu the war.
Diamonds, Watches, Personal Gifts
Seymour nt Dunsmuir
The same thing is going on at Queen's, McGiil and other centres of learning throughout the Dominion. At the Kingston University five or six hundred students havo enrolled for military
training, while at McGiil they muster a thousand strong. So many
desired to train at the University of Toronto that Colonel H. H.
Madill, the officer commanding the Training Corps, has been
obliged to stop registration because the ranks are "full up." .The
young men who are so eager to qualify for whatever crisis may
confront the nation are mostly third and fourth-year students, who
fully appreciate the implications. They hove assumed the added
responsibility at a time when their waking hours are largely taken
up by lectures and study. No better evidence could be provided
of their sense of duty.
Should it be necessary for Canada to send over a large contingent to fight at the side of Britain and France, university men
trained in the art of warfare will be found giving leadership, as
they were in tho Great War and other struggles in which Canadians have been engaged for the preservation of privileges they hold
dear. The famous "K" Company of the Queen's Own Rifles, recruited by University of Toronto men, fought against the Fenions
in 1866 and served again in the Northwest Rebellion of 1885, while
the commander of the Toronto company of the Canadian contingent in the South African war was a graduate of this university.
No fewer than 5,651 graduates and undergraduates of the University of Toronto served in the Great [War, including 4,113 officers.
Similar contributions were mode by Queen's, McGiil, Dalhousie
and other universities all across the country.
Earnest young men at Oxford and Cambridge and other universities throughout the Empire ore likewise training. Nothing is
more important than that the soldiers of the King shall be led by
men in whom they have complete confidence. It must be gratifying to all who owe allegiance to the British Crown to think that
the natural-born leaders in every community have so high a sense
of their responsibilities.
I don't suppose there Is anyone
who hasn't heard lt said of some
friend or relative:
"Look at Joe. Did you ever see
anything like lt? He's been Jumping
around trom one Job to another for
the last fifteen years. He's never been
out of work for more than two or
three days at a time. When he gets
tired of one boss or one city, he Just
packs up and moves on to another
Job or another town. Hasn't the guy
ever heard the word unemployment?"
Well, whether you've heard of Joe
or not, there are such people. And I
mention him here, not to criticize
his apparent inability to settle down,
but rather to praise his ability to
keep away from bread-lines in these
days   of   wide-spread   unemployment.
For I do admit the unemployment
problem, although I believe that it's
too often referred to as an Incurable
growth upon modern civilization. The
problem itself has been publicized
too highly, as have the vain efforts
to solve it. Leaders who have championed the cause ot either side have
become national heroes, made such
by newspaper and magazine articles.
Even an amateur psychologist can see
the effect such publicity must have
upon the radical-minded person who
would rather direct his energy to the
support of some mythical Utopian
ideal than pay attention to the mere
business of earning a livelihood.
However, I am not going to climb
too far out on the limb. Many of
today's unemployed are fighting radicalism of all kinds, and are honestly
trying to find a Job anywhere, at any
old thing. But they are finally forced
to the conclusion—and they claim
that they speak from experience—
that there are Just no Jobs to be had.
If there were, they would have them.
But what of Joe? This Job-seeker
supreme Insists that there are jobs
by the hundred for men who know
how to get them. And I am Inclined
to agree. For Joe and his brotherhood
are the men who make openings for
others. Every time Joe gets fed up
with a position, he hands in his resignation and collects his pay. The
job he leaves is fair game for anyone
who ls out of work and has his wits
about him.
Recently a friend of mine returned
to Vancouver after roaming the
United States for three and one-half
years. This friend had some of Joe's
ability for getting work. He covered
all of the southern, south-western,
and western States, and he had at
least one job in each of them. He
was never without work unless he
wanted to be.
My friend lived and worked under
conditions similar to those pictured
so expertly by John Steinbeck ln his
stories of American labor. And after
careful observation of the "working-
stiff", my friend formed a couple of
"There are two kinds of unemployed," he told me, "those who don't
want to work and those who do. And
of those who do want work, the men
who get the Jobs are the ones who
have educated themselves more in
the  handling  of people   than  ln  the
Among the two thousand odd odd
students on this campus, there are a
considerable number of men who
have the converse Midas touch—that
is; when It comes to going out for the
night they suddenly think of father.
Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on one's outlook, father, ln
some cases, haa a car and a healthy
bankroll. Hence lt ls not out of the
way for some of the more parasitic
to 'borrow' ten dollars and the car.
Philosophically these parasites defend their actions: "The gang will
be there; I gotta go out some time;
I can't stick around a pile of books
all my life; You're only young once"
—ad nauseam.
If one of the gang cannot get the
necessary ten spot and the car because he is not dependent on pa or
pa's bankroll, one of the more realistic asks:  "Why?"
Of the realist one might ask:
"Which will you finish first, college
or father?"
At any rate pa has his uses.
In the publications office at all
times the students may find one or
more reporters writing stories for
this paper. At some time or other,
each reporter had to do a trial assignment. Were the trial satisfactory
the reporter was duly accepted as a
member of the Ubyssey staff.
As time progresses the reporter
hears lectures on editorial comment
by the editors and the news manager. He is told that he cannot say
that John Jones and Co. had a swell
time at the party because that is
only his opinion.
He is also told that he must not
start a story thus: At three o'clock in
the morning Professor J. MacLeod
became Injured when his car overturned ln the ditch when a bee stung
him on the nose.
He ls also told that he must check
up all the names and the Initials of
students and professors who 'make'
the columns of the paper.
He ls forced to adhere to facts.
FACTS,  nothing but  FACTS.
If   he   cannot   get   the   facts   then
there is no story.
But the human mind was made for
use. Consequently some of the more
imaginative of human beings soon
discovered that stories could be cre-
handllng of a particular type of
There are obvious loop-holes in the
argument, but one fact remains. The
business of getting jobs and holding
them is largely a matter of being
able to get along with people. It's
the flaccid, uninteresting person
without personality who has the
hardest  time as a bread-winner.
Higher education is a wonderful
thing, but lt should mean more than
mere book-learning. Although a university campus is a meeting place for
people with a more or less common
interest ln things Intellectual, lt ls
also a meeting place for individuals
from all walks of life. The university
student should take advantage of his
opportunities to educate himself socially as well as academically.

The imaginative gentlemen and
women, to bolster thetr Imaginative
creations and to create a market for
their wares, devised a simple yet
brilliant slogan "Truth ls stranger
than  Action."
The unimaginative — Mrs. Grundy
and Old Bill—accepted the slogan
with Implicit faith.
"It has been alleged ln secret quarters, according to Information received through official sources, that
a tall black man supposedly dressed
in black clothes was seen by an unknown man ln the vicinity of what
ls popularly thought to be the submarine base of the Utopian navy.
Your correspondent will reveal more
in a later despatch."

Some of the present reporters covering the conflict in Europe seem to

nothing ln at least half a column.
(I'm not doing so bad myself—I have
said nothing ln over half.)
A. C. Cummlngs ln the Province of
October 20, 1930, writes approximately three-quarters of a column on the
war. In the twelve paragraphs he is
careful to make lt clear that his despatch is not based on facts.
"Behind this activity is the suggestion that Hitler may delay  the west

"Bad weather on the Western front,
flooding of the Slegfrleft line, and
withdrawal of the French outposts

An Illustration tn a 1016 "Ubicee"

Vast changes In our economic social and political life, created by this
country's connections ln the British
Empire, were forecast by the speaker.
War has speeded up the process of
changing the fulcrum of our civilisation from the Old World to the
New. Industrialisation of Canada
will be accelerated; Canada will have
to take the lead In promoting collective security against future wars.
Mr. Hutchison declared Canada
has no right to criticise Britain's
policy, since It has always been a
consenting party to that policy. He
pointed out that America's neutrality policy can not be followed by

The Thunderbird has long held
sway on this oampus as a symbol of
university athletlo supremacy. Why
waa thla totem choaen? Was lt
thought to be more powerful than
others? More powerful, perhaps,
than the Huskte?
As a result of a plebiscite held on
the campus In February, 1984, it was
decided that "henceforth the Varsity
athletlo teams be called Thunderbirds that their enemies might shake
in their shoes, and that they might
be struck down to the greater glory
of the Alma Mater."
And, the Oolden Eagle and the
Orisslles, the other contestants for
this exalted position, withdrew dis-
comfltted Into their mountains before the power of this new Totem.
The name Thunderbird was suggested because the Musqueam Indians of whose ancestral territory
our campus forms a part, chose this
bird as the symbol for their Totem
This aU sounds very simple,  but
there Is a deep philosophical reason explaining why the Thunderbird   Is  superior   to   suoh   hoUow
symbols aa eaglea and grtssUes.
According to Mr. Irving, primitive
man  believed  that there  is.  In   the
spiritual    world   an   all    persuasive
power, which he oalled by the Polynesian term of "Mana" and whloh Is
very powerful ln the material world.
The whole of primitive thought la
involved ln the effort to control thla
The Musqueam Indians set aside
the Thunderbird and performed certain rituals ln Its honor which caused the "mana" to beoome resident
ln lt, and from which this mysterious
power could be transferred to the
members of the tribe.
In order to Insure the presence of
this power, they even made Images
of it In the form of the Totem poles
whloh we see today.

chUdren, what mysterious Totamlo
power the Thunderbird can Impart

Twenty-Five Huskies Invade Campus
Prairie Men
Want Return
of Hardy Cup
Determined to Take
Trophy Back
Unheralded and unsung, the University of Saskatchewan Huskies rolled into town yesterday morning, full
twenty-five strong. In search of the
Hardy Cup which they lost to the
Thunderbirds last year, the Huskies
are determined to take back the
"mug" thla time.
Heading the gridders again this
season was Coach Oolb McEown,
veteran grid mentor at Saskatchewan
who said that this year's version is a
muoh stronger squad than the green-
shlrted aggregation that Invaded the
Oampus last year.
Many of last year's letter-men have
gone, however, chief loss being that

captain and left half. Bud la now

"One    Man    Oang"    LaBerge    who
weighs ln around 100 pounds and Is
the Huskies chief wrecking crew. LaBerge will work at the snap position.

the quarterback slot although the
Skip sometimes Alls ln at left half.
Substitute quarter Is Earle Bowman.
Burden of the running plays will
rest on the able shoulders of Neil
McLeod and Jack Adllman who alternate at the right half spot and
burly Norm McLeod, 100 pound fullback. Also a running threat ls freshman star Danny Capraru, fullback
flash from last year's Regina Dales,
Junior champions of Canada.
Completing the team will be Jim
"Jumbo" MoConnell who will bat
down Varsity tacklers from the blocking half spot.
Score Fourth Win
23-10 in Victoria
Varsity's thundering Thunderbirds
clamped thetr claws a little more
firmly on the top spot of the Big
Four League last Saturday when they
walloped the Victoria Revellers 33-10
on Victoria's home ground.
The game which was sluggish and
devoid of any real football, was played ln a drizzling rain at times, and
tumbles were prevalent especially on
the Victoria side.
Pulling a surprise right from the
kick-off the Revellers rouged a Varsity back behind the line to go ahead
1-0 but a forward pass from Finlay
to Tucker, followed by a lateral to
Freddie Smith who crossed into pay-
dirt put the Birds ahead 6-1, Harmer
.   The   Collegians   added   another
point    when    Harmer'a    attempted
Held goal went wide and a Victoria
receiver was rouged by Austin Frith.
In  the  second  quarter,  Andy Boland,  who  flashed   for  Kaycees  last
year, threw a forward to Hank Rowe
who ln turn lateralled lt to Barber,
the latter scampering for forty yards
to  the  Varsity  3S-yard  line.    From
here Boland threw another pass, this
time to Anderson who was standing
ln the end zone to score a touchdown
that   was   converted,   knotting    the
score at 7-7.
Victoria took the lead again in the
third quarter when Jack Grogan
booted a perfect field goal, but It
was short lived as Lang took a poor
kick on the Victoria ten-yard line
and crossed over for an unconverted
Two more Varaity scores oame In
the final frame when Teagle Intercepted   a  pass  to  put   the  ball  In
scoring  position  and  Tommy   Williams skirted the end spot to soore.
The final score also came as a result of   an   Intercepted   pass  when
Lang   grabbed   a   desperate   Victoria
attempt   and   galloped   to   pay   dirt.
Harmer converted to bring the total
to 33-10.
Ready to spring at opposing Saakatohewan linemen Is Hank Stradlottl, powerhouse of the Varsity line.
"Hank", a diminutive rascal of
some 315 pounds, is one of the best
guards In the Big Four Conferenoe,
and will throw a scare Into those
Husky ball-carriers.
The _ame between Varsity and
Pro-Recs, was unfortunately called
off, the students winning the game
by default when the Oymnasts were
unable to field a team. So the boys
split up and had a practice tussle as
e warm-up for next week's battle for
the league leadership with Meralomas.

Robinson Scores
ILone Counter
Flashing their true form once again,
the young Varsity soccermen defeated
South Burnaby Saturday at Central
Park by a 1-0 count and In so doing
climbed to the giddy height* of third
place on the Vancouver and District
Soccer ladder.
The lone goal of the game oame on
the first play of the second half,
Temoln crossing to Basil Robinson
Just outside the penalty area, and the
inside-right slithering through to
place the sphere In the Burnaby net.
Both goals were constantly ln danger throughout the flrst half, with
the collegians dominating the majority of the play. The Todd brothers,
Temoln, Robinson and Herd, all tested the Burnaby goalie and once Sasaki boomed in a beauty which was
almost too hot to handle, but at the
other end the home centre-forward
Ted Crooks came disturbingly close
with a drive that had Leong well-
beaten, but skimmed safely off the
outside of the post.
Immediately after resumption, Varsity took tlie lead aa related with the
only goal of the game, and for the
remaining 44 minutes it was a continual nightmare for the campusmen
as they tried to put the game on Ice
and at the same time repulse desperate Burnaby raids.
Ubecccct Gain
First Victory
From Artt 14-0
The Ubeeceers picked off their flrst
win of the season at the Stadium on
Saturday when they blanked the
Arts Club 14-0.
Neither team could get going ln
the flrst half, evidently finding the
wet ball hard to handle and the
muddy pitch difficult to manoeuvre
on. However, after the breather, the
students really hit their stride, garnering fourteen points without a reply from the Arts lads.
Jerry Wood started off the splurge
with a penalty kick* from fairly close
ln,  and   followed  It  up  immediately
after   wtth   the   conversion   of   Evan
Davies' try; which came as the result
of a concerted drive by the forwards.
Refore the final whistle the Varsity   boys   had   tallied   twice   more,
once  by  Hloks on  a  three-quarter
run, and once by Stevenson as the
result of another forward rush.
Because of the somewhat moist
conditions, the three line had very
little chance to function, there being
no chance for accurate passing or
good running. The pack, however, as
soon as it became used to the slippery ball, changed Its tactics to suit
the conditions, and relied on footwork to supply most of the points.

To many on thia campus, the title Minors Sports is an unknown factor.
It does not exist. In fact, it ain't. And yet, to those who would like to
participate in suoh sports the crying need for space and equipment Is a
dirty shame. It is a dirty shame, and again, the blame for thla rests upon
the Students' Council and the atudenta who are too blind to aee money
being waated under their nosea while such a calamity exists on thia campua.
If any of you—undergrad or faoulty—have ever examined our $80,000
Stadium, you might be aet to thinking Just where the students' money—for
It was auoh that built and paid for It—has disappeared.
It Is quite true, and no one ls denying the faot, that the Stadium has
proved to be a boon to the college sports but that the promotional gold
mine that it represents has been waated is disgusting.
Walk over and look through our $80,000 collesium. In the building
proper, you'll And: a dressing room at one end, a dressing room at the
other end, and a void in between.
Connecting these two changing rooms la a room sixty feet long by
forty feet wide. It has a dirt floor, and In one corner some weight lifting
apparatus.    No more.
The rest must just as well be rented as a cemetery. It ls as desolate
and barren as one, more so for a cemetery has tombstones to break the
Glory be to Ood for our student representatives who Invented such a
room, and to an undergraduate body that Indolently alts by while auch
valuable space Is waated.
Are you interested in fencing, boxing, wrestling, tumbling, or weight-
lifting? The chances are that you are not. And yet there are more than
one hundred who are actively interested in these activities at the present
time, and hundreds more who would be if only they were given proper
You may not be interested in these minor sporta—you may not be interested in sports at all—but you should be deeply concerned in how YOUR
money is spent.
And the dirty shame of it is you're not.
If you were, you might aee that the Stadium offers the opportunity for
whloh these sports have been begging. In an Investment of 980,000, an
additional outlay of perhaps two hundred dollars ls not too much to aak to
asatffe these activities a chance to live and breathe on the campus.
A good floor could be laid, and the room which now measures forty
feet by sixty feet oould be divided Into two separate rooms. In here could
be housed the sports that have been previously mentioned. Fencing, of
which there are many enthusiasts, does not even exist on the campus today.
Boxing has a meagre attendance because there is no room in the Gym
except for one hour or two each week, provided the enthusiasts can flt this
time in with their time-table. And so on down the list for tumbling, weight-
lifting,  and wrestling.
If that room in the Stadium was outfitted they would have a permanent

but last night at the Varsity workout he was teaching the signals of

and Harmer and Joplln will alternate at blocking half, Joplln and
Carmlchael taking turns at the quarterback position.
