lections in the State
People in the vicinity of Sandusky have good reason to be interested in liv- ing birds and also in collections of mounted birds. No where else in Ohio can be seen such a variety of water fowl and shore birds, or so many of the warblers and other songsters when they are on their way to their nesting paces in Michigan or Canada.
Until the present year Erie-county had three notable collections of stuffed birds. One was the collection of the late Fred Frey, who for many years before he went into the undertaking business, had a barber shop on Decatur street, where he found time to preserve hund- reds of birds that were brought to him by his many friends. This large collec- tion of birds and other natural history specimens was purchased this year for the college at Bowling Green which has recently acquired also the splendid bird collection of Dr. Carl Tuttle, of Berlin Heights, probably the best mounted collection in Ohio. It comprises 511 speciments of which more than 400 are mounted. Most of them were collected by Dr. Tuttle and his wife in Erie coun- ty, Ohio or in Florida or Michigan. There are other specimens from Texas, Cali- fornia, Alaska and Canada. Among them are several birds that are now rare or on the verge of extinction, such as the great white whooping crane, the ivory biled woodpecker and the Carolina par- oquet.
The addition of these collections to the large number of bird specimens pre- viously assembled at Bowling Green gives this young college one of the larg- est and best collections of mounted birds and bird skins in the state.
Sandusky still has the large collection of birds which has been seen by thous- ands of visitors to the High School mus- eum. Cleveland has recently acquired a large collection of foreign bird skins, chiefly from South America and the is-
lands in the South Atlantic. These are in the office building of the Museum of Natural Hisory, which is not open to visitors. There are now more species in this collection than in Sandusky, but they are not mounted and not accessible to the public. The writer believes that the Sandusky museum still affords the visitor an opporunity to see the largest collection of mounted foreign birds in Ohio.

-<6(B.G.N>-' Junior-Senior Party Was
Pretty Social Affair The annual Junior-Senior formal par-
ty held in the Woman's gymnasium at the college, Friday evening, Jan. 20, was the most distinctive social affair on the January college calendar and was an ev- ent that is always anticipated with much pleasure and preparation.
The class colors, blue and gold for the Juniors, and rose and gold for the Sen- iors, were used in lovely decorative ef- fects, a canopy of blue and gold over- head with a center square of rose, and rose wound posts.
In the receiving line were Pres. and Mrs. Williams, Prof, and Mrs. Zaugg,
Dr. and Mrs. Martin, Miss Fromme, Dr. Florence Williamson, Prof. Steller, Mr. Tobias Edwards, president of the Seniors class, and Mr. Waldo Schmunk, president of the Junior class.
Harold Farling's orchestra, Toledo, played for the program of eight dances and four extras. Dance programs were blue with gold pencils.
Punch, wafers, and ice cream in rose molds marked with a white J or S were served to approximately 40 couples.
The Junior and Senior classes enter- tained jointly for this party which is formal and is one of the nicest of the many college dancing parties and enter- tainments.

Chicago University, instructor of His- tory recently became a member of our faculty."

Williams Hall was "well-night" deserted
save for a few faithful souls whom pe- cuniary difficulties prevented from re-
turning to their native shores. The diet- ician, was not troubled by any such cir- cumstances, so she too sallied away to the "scenes of her childhood" leaving us to depend upon our knowledge of rote songs, U. S. Government, and History of Education, to keep us alive during the interin. The cook, a good Christian woman, condescended to prepare our noon day rations each day. Besides this aide de camp, we also had Betty Taylor a real "genuine" Home Economics student who nurtured us through the other meals—and right royally and per- haps even mationaly—ly performed her duties.
Not having the specie with which to go and observe the heroes of screenland, we not only invited them but literary heroes, as well to visit our thus honored hall on Saturday night. These stars of the camera and the pen staged a vaude- ville for our benefit. The glory of the occasion and the rush of events seem to muddle my memory but dimly I recall John Gilbert, alias Dorothy Robinette and the divine Greta staging a bedroom scene. Fainty I remember a gift, a kiss, an escape or at least something of the sort. Following these come other vague recollections—Williams Haines;, other- wise Ruth Alexander or perhaps it was Catherine Becker—how can it be ex- pected that I remember all—at least, he killed two women or perhaps, he sav- ed them, what does it matter? Then I see Robinson Crusoe staged by a certain Mac person sailing forth from England on a piano stool, then a shipwreck, a foot print, and Friday turns up on Sat- urday to bless his weary days. Said Fri- day is none other than the aforement- ioned Betty (From cook to savage!) — versatile—oh deah! Yes! Other heroes appear and clash about in my brain but to no purpose—what was your idea of bringing it up anyway?

Ye Olde Five Brothers Fraternity had
one gay afair on Tuesday evening, Feb. 14. Sure everyone was there, and what
a time they had, only they can explain
it. Entertainment and plenty of it, seem- ed to be the main issue. Cards, singing, smoking and music. Yes music, the fin- est to-be had of course. Professor Ora Knecht (?) was the musician of note and ability to be obtained for the evening. He favored us at various times with the best chords to be heard in this day. What a treat it was to hear this master play. Then too the cards sharks were in evi- dence. Mr. oh I must not mention their names for fear of publicity, and I am sure that members of the Delhi's and Commoners can vouch for their ability. What time was it when they went home. Well it was past the seasonable hour of shall I say ten? Yes, and a little ways past that too. The eats, yes of course we had them. Not so many that puts on weight, but then just enough to be soc- iable, you know. Coffee did I say? Seems as if some of he boys would not be able to sleep after the amount they were able to gargle. Everyone enjoyed themselves, and we were very glad of it. The Delhi Fraternity was represented by Arthur Kuder and Harold Treece, while Ira Smith and Hayes Garster represented the Commoners. The guests of the eve- ning outside of any of the Fraternities included:
Lester Hanna, John Maas, Howard Rogge, Clark Boyd, Louis Zeissler, Al Latham, Stewart Gotschalk, Clarence Filiere, Van Frowine, John Barr, Doan Limber, Charles Wight, Archie Myers, James Rex, and Melvin Bigelow.
Brother Volney Markle has been for- ced to withdraw from school for the pre- sent on account of sinus trouble. We hope that he will be back with us within a few weeks.
Delhi Fraternity The Delhi Fraternity held their re-
gular meeting Tuesday evening, Feb. 8. After the customary business was dis- posed of a date was set for the annual Delhi Dinner Dance. It is to be held on April 20th.

Educational Values At the beginning of each semester we
choose the courses which have the great- est educational value for us, or perhaps we chose those courses which give us the most credit for the smallest amount of work done.
This, however, is not the only choice of this nature which we must make; we must also decide how much of our time can be spent on outside activities. How much can we sacrifice from our studies before the loss there becomes greater than the educational value which we grain from our outside activities?
These activities are necessary and are a very important part of our education; but there is a danger that we will con- sider them of paramount importance, in other words we allow the tail to wag the dog. In a school where many of us take part in a great number of activities, we must face the problem of dividing our time wisely.

-•«6fB.G.N>- It is said that George Washington
never told a lie. Well, there was less occasion for lying in those days. Golf had not been imported from Scotland, radio had not been invented, all alcoh- olic stimulants were pre-war stuff, and the number of miles secured from a gal- lon of gas was not a subject for pop- ular discussion. Exchange.
-^(B.G.]SL>- A Smart Pretty Girl
It happened on an east bound train in Indiana on the day after New Year's. On the observation car was gathered a group of college boys and girls return- ing to an eastern university.
About half of these young people, in- cluding the girs, were smoking. Most of them were expensively dressed. The best dressed and prettiest girl in the party had refused to smoke and was being joshed for being a prude.
Of course, I just had to listen in. "What's the big idea, Sally?" asked
a husky, a young shiek from Omaha. "Afraid you'll spoil that rose-pink com- plexion?"
"My, that isn't it!" said a snappy-ey- ed litte brunette, wearing the same sor- ority pin as Sally. "It's just that Sally has more sense than most of us. Sally isn'c a prude and she does just about as she pleases."
"I'll bet it's because Bill doesn't ap- prove," said another one of the young men. "You know Bill is captain of the football team for next year and he does- n't believe that girs should smoke."
"Defend yourself, Sally," said anoth- er of the girls. "Tell these duds why you don't smoke."
"Of course, it's none of their bus- iness," said Saly, "but it's just because smoking doesn't fit in with my idea of living. Neither does drinking nor neck- ing, if you want to know."
"I think it is simply stupid to do things that don't give you any special
pleasure and that spoil you for enjoy- ing something better.
"It seems to me that there are just two ways to live if one thinks at all and has any individuality."
"You can live as clean and fine as you know how and fit yourself to do real things like Lindbergh is doing. Or you can follow along with the kind of folks that are trying to get a kick out of do- ing something just a little wicked."
"Then you kid yourself into thinking you are in the swim and are a good sport and all that. And I notice a lot of good sports can't stand the pressure and go rotten, as Hickman did. As a matter of fact it takes a real nerve to be decent these days, and I always did hate a weak sister."
"It's just a case of deciding what kind of a person you want to be. I'm no reformer, I hate reformers. But while I have no objection to your doing just as you please, I can't see any sense in throwing away my chance to get a real kick out of the big things of life just to have a few, foolish little vices."
"That's all there is to it. Now smoke yourselves to death if you want to."
"Ouch!" said the young shiek from Omah. "So that's all is it, Sally? I am glad there isn't anymore. I'll be hanged if I don't believe you're right. I wish there were more girls like you."
And there are; a million of them.
~m{B.G.N>°- Country Life Club
The Country Life Club held a meet- ing at the College Wednesday evening, Feb 8. A large number of students came to hear the interesting program that had been prepared. The first number was a reading by Miss Carmen Rettig. The second number was a violin solo played by Miss Pearl Urschalitz. Then, another reading, "The Shooting of Dan McGrew" was given by John Carring- ton. The last thing on the program was "The Topics of the Day" by Ruth Milk- ey. After the close of this program the club was reorganized for the new sem- ester.
The new officers who were elected are president, Mr. Dale Daniels; vice
president, Ernest Leathers; secretary- treasurer, Miss Virginia Arduser; chair- man of program committee, Wilber Miller; chairman of gym program, John Carrington. After the close of the meet- ing we went to the gym, where all en- joyed the hour of games and dancing.
Lorain Club Marie Pastor proved herself a charm-
ing hostess when she entertaned mem- bers and friends of the Lorain Club, on Tuesday evening, Jan. 17, at the home of Mrs. Van Wagner, Clough street.
Music and bunco were the main div- ersions of the evening, honors falling to Misses Ruth Edwards and Josephine Gadomski.
A dainty luncheon was served at small tables to the following guests: Corrine Bevan, Josephine Routson, Bertha Pe- kare, Mildred Bachellor, Grace Hirt, Lorraine Mooney, Josephine Gadomoski Dorothy Cox, Aline Ruhle, Ruth Ed- wards, Norma Romosher, Marie Pastor, Twila Busha and Beatrice Beck.
The next meeting wil be held in two weeks.
Girls Prom Took Form Of Costume Party
The annual Girls Prom, sponsored by the Woman's League of the College, was an amusing event of Saturday evening, Feb. 11, in the Woman's gym. The af- fair was informal and strictly feminine and as this is a costume party the girls (and the facuty girls too!) gleefully "dressed up." Two hundrded types of masqueraders, funny, pretty and gay spent a frolicsome evening in dancing and with games. Prizes were awarded for the cleverest costume, which was that of a black and white leatherette clad pirate; to the best dressed couple, a Spanish gentleman and lady, and for the most ridiculous, which was made of a crazy quilt.
Valentine appointments were attract- ively evident in the refreshments which were later served.

-^B.G.N.^- It is related that an elderly professor
of English in an eastern seat of learn- ing, having been dismissed from the college for some reason or other, found it difficult to make a living. Reduced to
Pago ll
sore straits, he accepted the menial job of waiter in a shabby resturant.
"Look here," stormed one of his first customers, pointing to the turien," what is the meaning of that dead fly in the soup?"
"I regret, sir," said the pedagogie waiter," that I cannot supply you with the desired information. I am supposed to serve the soup, not to explain its in- gredients."
"But a dead fly, man!" persisted the customer, "a dead fly!" How did it hap- pen?'"
I am sorry to say, sir, I have no idea how the poor insect met its fate. Poss- ibly it had not taken food for a long time, and, fluttering near the soup, found the aroma particularily appetiz- ing, and, eating too heartily, contracted appendicitis, or gastritis, or some similar digestive malady, which, in the absence of an opportunity for the application of X-rays and appropriate medical and sur- gical treatment, caused its untimely de- mise."

meeting, Wednesday, Feb. 15th at 7:00 o'clock. At this meeting new officers for this semester were elected. Anna Hayne will be president, Shirley Overmeyer, vice president, Helen Lawrence, secre- tary and Helen Brown, treasurer. A new member, Elizabeth Brown, was vot- ed into the organization.
At this time, it was decided to have an open meeting n two weeks, and in four weeks it was decided to let men only give a regular "he man" program.
The program for the night was based upon the subject, "February's Famous Sons." The first number was "St. Val- entine's Place" presented by Miss Grif- fith. Then, Eizabeth Brown entertained the society with two of Lowell's perns. The third number was "Lincoln's Boy- hood" by Miss Kessler. Last but not least came "Washington" by Miss Mar- tha Burwell. After this very interesting program, the meeting was adjourned.

The Y. M. C. A. failed to hold a meet- ing during January because of too many conflicts with other organizations.
The next meeting will be on March 8. A special speaker has been secured for that evening. Ray Avery, a present Bowling Green attorney, and a former captain in the army, will speak on "Nat- ional Defense."
This topic is of current value to our country. Every young man in College should take advantage of this oppor- tunity to secure the information of a problem, the laxity of which undoubted- ly some day may cause the downfall of our nation.
Dinners Honor Birthday In compliment to the birthday of Prof.
W. A. Zaugg, Mr. and Mrs. S. R. Case, entertained with a dinner of Valentine appointments at the Woman's Bulding, Feb. 14.
A crimson cyclaman holding a red heart on which was mounted a small cupid beautifully centered the table. Red heart shaped nut boxes marked cov- ers for Prof, and Mrs. Zaugg, Mr. and Mrs. Loren Campbell, Miss Lena Mills, Miss Essa Williamson and Mr. and Mrs. Case.
Following the dinner courses the guests went to the Case home on South Church street for an informal evening of Victrola music, a heart contest, and chat.
-•^{B.G.N.}*- College Debators Copped
Victory Bowling Green college clearly out-
debated the visiting Waynesburg college team, from Pennsylvania Thursday eve- ning, Feb. 9, on the local platform on the question: "Resolved: That Democracy is a Failure." The final decision was up to the audience, which voted 99 to 16 for the Bowling Green team.
In assuming the affirmative side of the debate, Bowling Green coerced the vis- itors to admit practicaly all of the ar- guments they presented. The visitors were shown to have missed the issue by the clever Bowling Green team, which proved that they did not have to show a better plan of government but merely had to prove that Democracy was a fai- lure.
The debate was very fine and the vis- iting team was strong. They met a bet- ter team in this city, that was all.
The crowd numbered just two hund- dred and eight. Prof. C. J. Biery acted as chairman.
Howard George and Lester Hanna, of Bowling Green, and Robert Tripp, of Hudson, Mich., were the victorious spea- kers. Kenneth Skellon, Robert Stein and Leslie Brock were the visiting debators.

The mmebers later adjourned t othe dining room where refreshments were served by the hostesses, Misses Norma Lee, Ruth Holloway and Lor- etta Blackburn.
-«8(B.G.N>- Annual Snow Party By
Glee Club The Woman's gym at the college was
transformed into a gay winter scene Saturday night, Feb. 4, when the Glee Club entertained with their annual for- mal Snow Party. Fluted strips of white crepe paper vformed a canopy above the dancers, sloping toward the sides of the room. Snowy branches sprang from posts and crimson hearts against the walls dashed warm color on the wintry white- ness, adding a Valentine suggestion.
Fifty couples, the girls in prettily hued evening frocks, danced to the strains of Leo Lake's orchestra, who played a program of eight numbers and four extras.
Members of the music deparment were invited as chaperons and included Miss Matilda Morelock, Prof, and Mrs. Church, Prof. Tunnicliffe, Miss Dorothy Clement and Mrs. F. C. Mooers.
Red punch and wafers were served throughout the evening.

Faculty Student Relations The matter of faculty-student relat-
ions in administration is a question for discussion in many colleges. The student council at the University of Wisconsin has abdicated and its charter has been annuled by the faculty. However, the Cornell Sun advocates student-faculty committees to consider faculty legis- lation concerning students; Wooster, earlier in the year, announced success with such a committee. The Harvard Un- iversity committee of undergraduates are preparing a report to the faculty on curriculum, library lighting conditions, prompt dismissal of classes and similar matters.
Again, the president of one Ohio col- lege has said that "students are too darn busy trying to run the school." With varying degrees of emphasis one finds opinions questioning whether students are of enough maturity, wheth- er they have sufficient background to be of much assistance to a college ad-
i*:ir u
ministration. Differing valuations of several ques-
tions account in part for the fluctuating success of organzed student faculty co- operation. Is its existence justified if it serves to spread a feeling of good will at critical moments? Is it of suffi- cent value ether to students or admin- istrations to warrant students spending hours in fruitless discussions?

~*;{B.G.N>~ A Substitute for Exams
Numerous changes have advanced the educational systems of the United States during the past decade. It is highly pro- bable, in fact inevitable, that the next twenty years will note additional pro- gress with the countless number of ex- periments being made by hundreds of insttutions of higher learning.
The abolition of final examinations has been long agitated by students and liberal members of the faculty. Just as many believe that final exams are an
integral part of college work, so are there large numbers who honesty be- lieve in the doing away with such tests.
Out of fairness to those who favor the continuance of the present system, let us state that there is justifciation for it. The student is forced to review the work of the semester, thereby im- pressing it more firmly on his mind. By this review, a complete correlation of the semester's work is obtained; the course is set firmly in the mind as a complete correlation—it is not a series of fits and starts, the mere jumping from one assignment to another.
If we shoud substitute a term paper for the final examination each student would be forced to extend himself to his utmost in order to prepare an accur- ate resume of the semester's work. Dif- ferent subjects might be assigned, or each member of the class might be re- quired to write on the same subject. Such an assignment would of necessity have to be made with the idea of cor- relating this paper with the work of the semester.
In the opinion of the student regard- ing application of the course and the benefit derived could be expressed. A term paper of this nature would be of considerable value to the student. We would necessarily review the year's thereby setting the course firmly in hs mind.
-«8(B.G.N.)§>- Emerson Literary Society
On Wednesday, Jan. 18, the regular meeting of the Emerson Literary soc- iety was held. At this meeting the fol- lowing new members were voted into the organization: Gertrude Miller, Mary Cothrell, and John Carrington.
A committee to nominate officers for the next semester was appointed by Miss Anna Hayne, the president. Martha A. Brown, chairman, Marie Alurne, and Dale McDaniels are to make up this committee.
On account of the basketball game, the time being short, Prof. Schwartz dispersed with parliarmentary drill.
The program for the night was de-
voted to the subject, ''Around the World With Kipling," The first number was Kipling's „Travel," given by Miss Lenore Otto, "Themes of Kipling," presented by Miss Elizabeth Bexler made up the second number of the program. Finally, a review of the novel, "The Light That Failed," given by Miss Helen Carr, fin- ished up a successful evening.
The Emerson Literary Society of B. G. N. C. held its regular meeting Feb. 1. At this time it was decided to have in the near future a mock meeting of the legislative body of the U. S. and incid- entally get a largem amount of parlia- mentary practice from such a meeting.
Then a very interesting parliament drill was given by Professor Swartz, the faculty advisor.
The evening's program was devoted to contrasting and comparing the lives and works of Eugene Field and Robert Lewis Stevenson. "The Lives of Eugene Field and Robert Lewis Stevenson" was given by Miss Jane Snyder. "The Typ- ical Poethy of Field" was given by Miss Bernice Sneider. The last number was "The Typical Poem of Stevenson" givt n by Miss Alspach.

Bee Gee Downs Defiance It was an easy victory for the Orange
and Brown, when they played the De- fiance boys at the Bowling Green gym. The Falcons easily retained their lofty position in the conference when they de- feated Defiance, 43-28.
Landis started the old lineup with Miller and Steen at forwards, Fish at center and Yawberg and Filiere at guards.
It was an easy game of play they ran up a score of 16-2. Steen's passing was great and Miller played a fine game leading the scoring with 17 points. The boys all played a good game and were hoping that they do as well against To- ledo.

Toledo Defeats Bowling Green On Feb. 4, the Bowling Green boys
journeyed to Toledo where they were defeated 29-38 by the fast T. U. basket ball team.
A large crowd followed the local boys to the city where they gave their loyal support but all in vain.
The Toledo boys got away to a good start for after the first sixteen minutes of play the score stood 18-0 in favor of Toledo. Steen then started the scoring, by making a foul after which the scor- ing came a little easier and the half end- ed 24-10.
The boys continued their comeback and after five minutes the score was 25- 19 in favor of our opponents.

(OCNA)—Another great Akron U. basketball quintet struck the bugaboo of all good hoop aggregation—Mr. Off Night. Many a wonder five have passed dribbled and shot their way to the hei- ghts of success only to have a far infer- ir team rise nobly to the occasion and with the aid of the dread bugaboo send the outfit down to defeat. Baldwin- Wallace keyed to the pitch by the loss of their star center, Schwegler, on the eve of the battle, fought the winning fight and a game Zipper five congra- tuates them—n sorrow perhaps, yet in the knowledge they fought to a team game to the core.
The score was close—31-29—the win- ning bucket being registered by Buck in the closing seconds, but Akron's con- ference can rest assured that the spec- tre of loopsters has paid one visit and will not return to mar their champion- ship hopes again. With the fine basket- eers they boast, the Hilltop lads can not be coun ed out of the race with one oss. Up and at 'em Zippers!

From Marietta gain comes a tale of the basketball prowess of one. "Toots" Trott. Said worthy uncorked a dazzling one man offensive that even the capable Muskingum hoopsters could not check, garnering 25 out of his team's 34 points Wow! Incidentally, the Muskies grabbed the verdict by a 47-34 margin.
If anyone should mention the name Flax to you, immediately connect it up with the accurately-shooting "spark outa' Hell" who has been keeping Cin- cinnati's Bearcats in the Buckeye As- sociation and Ohio Conference races. Cincy s the home of good basketball players among who mthis boy Ellis Flax eagleyed running guard, is not the last. When the going is extremery rock, said point-getter opens up an extra bit of vim from his inexhaustible supply and hauls Cincy's chestnuts out of the fire. Page the opposition, please!
Bolton—sure enough!—the power be- hind the throne on Cincy's aggregation is roling in for his quota of points in a no-ways backward manner. When they stop "the Red Ape" both on defense and offense, they come bigger and better.
It all depends whom you are playing and just how much fight you have when Old Bugaboo Off-Night breezes around, Cincy. That's the supreme and perhaps the fatal test.
Burkholder of Ohio U. and Taylor of Miami are stagging a close scrap for scoring honors in the Buckeye Assoc- iation and I would suppose, in the Ohio Conference as well. Plenty of tilts be- fore them to improve or—toboggan!
There was once a basketball squad on which there was no dissention whatso- ever. Five men composed that squad.
Keyser and Knoots, Wttenberg's long range marksmen, are connecting for a good average again this campaign. De- fense means little when the two blond forwards get their toes dug in at mid- floor. Little Joe will more than likely average his twelve markers per tilt again this season.
