CLEVELAND STUDENTS ORGANIZE NEW CLUB
During Christmas vacation, the present |and alumni students of
Bowling Green I state college, who live in greater Cleveland,
I organized a club to be known as the Bowl- j ing Green College
Club. The purpose of the club is to promote a closer bond between
the individual and his college, and to re- new and form friendships
with other pre- sent and alumni students of the college, who live
in greater Cleveland.
The first meeting was in the form of a I luncheon at the Spanish
Room of the May
Co. in Cleveland. At this time the follow- ing officers were
elected: Junerose Bader, president; Carolyn Carman, vice president;
Mrs. Cecile Brown, alumni, secretary-
I treasurer. All present and former men and women
I Bowling Green students of greater Cleve- land are cordially
invited to join the club. Names and addresses of interested
| may be sent to the officers. The next meeting will be a
[during the spring vacation. Mr. Franklin Moss, class of '32, of
[ Unity, Ohio, now a Junior high school tea- cher, was our guest at
the first meeting.

Delhis Sponsor Prosperity Dance
Saturday night, Jan. 12, the Delhi Fraternity broke tradition and
instead of the usual Depression dance sponsored an all-college
Prosperity dance. Dim lights, very delicious punch, and colorful
balloons all made the evening enjoyable. The event of the evening
was the distribution of money, one bill of which was marked and
entitled the finder to a real dollar from the Delhis. Music for the
successful evening was furnished by Loe's Ambas- sadors.
CANDIDATES FOR GRADUATION, FEB. 1
Last Thursday evening Dr. Bourne spoke at the regular Y. M. C. A.
meeting on the possibilities of world peace. A logical, com-
mon-sense analysis of the problem of se- curing international
confidence was pre- sented.
Dr. Bourne emphasized the fact that peace cannot come with
preparedness, but there must originate and develop in each
individual the sincere desire for world peace. As long as people,
and the nations they make up, do not comprehend the in- trinsic
causes of war it will be impossible for peace to be assured.

Kent State College was host to repre- sentatives of five
institutions at a debate tournament for women, Jan. 11 and 12.
Schools taking part were Heidelberg, To- ledo, Manchester, Ind.,
Kent and Bowling Green.
There were four rounds of debate, each debate judged and criticized
by a coach of debate. B. G. girls won 5, tied one and lost 2, thus
"stealing the show".
Kent arranged a dinner, furnished rooms for the girls of each
college, and served a delicious breakfast to students, coaches and
chaperones. They also issued cards for the all-campus party on

Norris The Valiant
mire this gray-haired statesman from the
Nebraska prairies. His name has been
connected with every piece of liberal legis-
lation in Congress for the last quarter of
a century. It was Senator Norris who pushed a
Muscle Shoals bill through Congress seven times before his dream
was realized in the TVA of the New Deal. It was this pro- gressive
Nebraskan who brought about the abolition of the "Lame Duck"
sessions of Congress by the Twentieth Amendment.
Some time ago, Senator Norris ex- plained the results of his latest
victory. Nebraska, last Nov. 6, amended her con- stitution to
provide for an unicameral legis- lator elected on a non-partisan
ballot. He listed the benefits, benefits which our own State
Government classes have worked out often. We hope that Ohio will
some day adopt this far-sighted reform.
Senator Norris has already laid plans for his next battle—the
abolition of the electoral college, which has cut-lived its
usefulness. There are few men today who have given so much in
public service. We only wish that men of his stature could be
gifted with immortality. But as it is, there are many years ahead
for Norris the statesmen, the liberal. We hope that his battles of
the future will be as successful as those of the past, and that
some day he will receive his just reward.

X-45 Equals What?
The mysterious equation, X-45 equals What?, was simplified by Pres.
Williams in last week's chapel. Two solutions were offered: one in
terms of cash, the other in terms of resultant personality.
The first solution offered by Pres. Wil- liams was that the X
represents an in- vestment by the State of Ohio of over $320 —an
investment divided so that about $10 for maintenance and around
$260 for sa- laries is furnished by every student in Bowling Green
State College. Interpreted in illustrative amounts, the maintenance
cost includes about $3 per month for electricity, three tons of
coal per year for each student, etc. This amount places B. G. S. C.
in the upper tenth of the colleges in the Northwestern Assn| as
judged by per capita expenditures.
But this investment, made by the state is also in educational
effort. The result is relative—"What?" then becomes a result to be
measured in terms of growth in char- acter, in ability to think for
oneself, to live socially with others, and in wholesome per-

There were approximately sixty present at this meeting, the speaker
for which was Miss Marjorie Muggy from Radcliffs in Toledo. Miss
Muggy is an interior decor- ator and she spoke regarding this
profes- sion as a possible one for women with Home Economics
It is the purpose of the club this year to bring to our meetings
speakers repre- senting the many fields open to Home Economics
graduates other than the teach- ing- field. Mrs. Wagner, Home
Demon- stration Agent, spoke at the meeting in December. In times
such as these in which specialization is being stressed, this type
cf program offers many suggestions to those interested in
professions for women.

Saturday evening Phratra pledges enter- tained the members, Miss
Beattie, adviser, rnd Mrs. Forrest, house mother, with a theatre
party. After returning to the house, the pledges showed originality
and in- itiative by singing a clever song in honor of the sorority
after which refreshments were served. The sorority colors, green
and yellow, were carried out in a delight- ful manner. Distinctive
favors were pre- sented to each. The evening was brought to a close
by attending the Prosperity Dance. The pledges deserve much praise
for their efforts and we also thank Mrs. Forrest for her willing
cooperation and help.
Since today is the second anniversary of our sorority, we shall
celebrate with a formal banquet at the Woman's Club to- night. We
are hoping to have several of the alumnae with us.
Skol Skrols Tuesday night, Jan. 15, the Skol pledges
entertained the active chapter with an at- tractive bridge supper
at their home. Dain- ty refreshments were served and the tables
were decorated with black and gold to carry out the sorority's
colors. First prize was awarded to Virginia Young and the
consolation prize went to Mary Cramer. Mary Kirk, president of the
pledges, had charge of arrangements. The actives take this
opportunity to thank the pledges for the lovely party—we certainly
enjoyed our- selves.

Regardless of the out- come we're with you—Beat Toledo!
Congratulations, Delhis for the wonder- ful dance. Who said the

FALCONS WIN THIRD CONFERENCE TILT Trounce Otterbein, 41 to 35
Friday evening January 11, the Falcons won the third victory of the
year. After win- ning two conference games from Kent and Ashland
they went out on the floor with this "New Deal", in spirit and
defeated our old rival, Otterbein by a score of 41 to 35. It looked
in the first few minutes of play as though our opponents were going
to win by a big margin. They tallied the first six points of the
game. Bee Gee then took time out and looked over the situation.
From that time on each team had plenty of trouble both offensively
Practically all through the first half neither team was able to
gain any ground upon the other one. Only a few points ex- isted, at
any time, between the two scores. Never did either team have a safe
Loucks, six foot five center for the op- ponents, appeared as
though he was go- ing to give the local cagers a real handi- cap.
Due to the versatality of the Orange and Brown men they managed to
cope with the situation with great ease.
lewis for the Falcons, gave the oppon- ents plenty to worry about,
scoring 17 points handling the ball very deceptively, and making
the breaks. Weber did a beautiful j-. b of guarding another of
these "Baby Giants" that are so prevalent in the Ohio Conference
this year. Weber had his quota of* fcwls early in the second half
and was forced to leave the game. Stevenson who replaced him is
looking more colorful in each game. He also did a nice job at the
Shafer was handicapped by a sprained ankle. He opened Bee Gee's
scoring list, sinking a nice shot after receiving a beau- tiful
pass from Albon. Wallace went out on fowls late in the first half
but chalked up eight points during his time in the game.
Conrad, sophomore varsity man, saw a lot of service and seems to ba
swinging right into this Falcon aggregation.
The most colorful men on the opponents quintet were Loucks, Rutter
and Holland. Otterbein can be safely regarded as a tough outfit.
However, the remainder of the schedule shows that the toughest
games are yet to be played. Spectators possibly have experienced
more thrills at the Bee Gee games this year than they have for a
long time, so come out to the following
