TOLEDO "U" WINS Bee Gee opened the conference basketball
season at Toledo on the University sourt with a 30 to 19 loss. At
the end of the first half the Orange and Brown were leading the
"Bi<; Ciiy Tossers" 14 to 12, but the two points lead did not
amount to much after the second half got under way,
"Manny" Wisberg was the big man for Toledo and in this half he
seemed to run wild, caging the sphere from almost any angle. At the
same time, the locals were failing to hit the bucket for count- ers
and team work was also lacking.
Bachman, despite the fact that he was a marked man, succeeded in
making five field goals.
Coach "Mac" carried his entire varsity squad to Toledo. The squad
at the present time consists of 14 men.
The game was somewhat a disappointment, as the followers of the
Orange and Brown anticipated a victory. The two teams will meet,
again and the locals will treat Toledo U to the low score. Line- up

Bee Gee made a very cred'ble showing, especially in the first half,
which ended 13 to 14 In favor of Dayton. Each member of the Orange

only one week in drilling them.
In the last half Dayton quickly took advantage of the Staters

the diminutive "Tom" Crowley.

displayed Friday night, gave the Saints a real scare on Saturday
night, January 12th, at Westminster gym. The first half started
with each team playing a fast game, Bee Gee being a bit off color
but rapid- ly improving as the half progressed. The Saints at no
time had over a point lead and just as the whistle announced the
end of the half the Orange tossers netted the goal, which tied the
count at 12-all.
The second half showed B. G. going strong, likewise St. John's.

see-sawed back and forth the entire half, neither team being able
to an- nex a safe margin of points. Premo, Bachman and Moscoe
carried the Orange and Brown offense well, while Hesrick and
Bistline were mainstays on the defense.
The game, although a loss so far as points were concerned, was a
victory for Coach McCand- less for it showed that the "Cowboys"
were finally mastering his style and give every sign of an expert
aggregation by mid-season.

HAVE A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING AND HAVE EVERYTHING IN ITS PLACE
In the fall of the year 1922 I went to see my cousin, John Ormsby,
whom I had not seen for many years. He and his wife, whom he had
married six months previously, were living on a farm about three
and one-half miles from a little village called Spraxton.
In this village, one clear, cold afternoon at 1:3.0. a very homely,
tired looking young man was seen to get off the train, wearily plod
his way up town, and go into several stores consecutively. I was
At last I found out where John lived and de- rided I would walk out
in order to spring a more complete surprise. After walking five of
the three nnd one-half miles with my eyes in continuous search, I
finally did catch sight of the house sought for, and I was glad,
for fatigue and hunger had taken possession of me. My ring at the
door was answered by John who was certainly surprised. Of course he
asked me in and I proceeded to take off my over- shoes. A very
serious look came over his face as he said slowly, "Why, I have no
place for over- shoes."
"Oh", I answered, "They're all right here on the porch."
"Yes", he drawled out, "but I like to have a place for everything
and have everything in its place. Come along out to my shop and
we'll make places for overshoes."
"All right", I said cheerfully. I supposed he had something grand
to show me. I didn't take the overshoe business seriously.
On the way out to the shop our conversation ran as most
conversations do—something about how well the folks were and a
whole lot about the weather. Just before entering, he said, "I tell
you, 1 believe in having a place for everything and then keep
everything in its place." I would have known that before the day
was over had he not told me.
"Yes", I agreed, "that's a very good plan." We went into the shop
which I at once observed
was very orderly and clean. John, apparently know- ing what he was
about, went to a case containing a series of drawers and pulled out
the one which had the letter "H" tacked to it. At length he handed
me a little card which said "Hammer No. 729" and told me to go over
to the tool room and get it. Dumfounded, though I was, I asked no
questions but went after the hammer while he looked up the other
necessary tools. On entering the tool room the first thing that met
my eyes was a hammer and I got it.
Within one-half hour we had all the tools out on the bench and were
ready to begin work which, I had found out, was really making a
place for over- shoes. The places were made just the shape of my
rubbers, which were nines. The other sizes he would make some other
day. When we were through he said, "While you're here I guess I'll
have you help me glue the framework of my writing desk
"How long have you been working on your writing desk?" I
"About six weeks", was the reply. "You know when a fellow has
everything in order he can work so much faster." I said
By the time he had, skillfully, by the use of cards, gotten his
tools ready the glue was hot and everything was set for the work.
The glue was ap- plied and we were ready to use the clamps but we
had forgotten blocks of wood to keep the clamps from marring the
woodwork. I looked around on Ihe floor but nothing was to be found.
Every shop ought to have pieces of wood lying around over the Poor
but there was none in John's shop. He told me where to go to get
some but by the time I got back the glue was cold and the whole
thing was to be done over again.
When we were through, the tools were to be put away. First, put the
tool away, then take the cor- responding card back. Great
calamity—I had gotten the wrong hammer when sent for one. The
difficul- ty was finally straightened out all right and much tc my
joy we started toward the house.
On the way, John said, "Time for the chickens to go to
"Yep". I answered, thinking to myself, "Trying to keep the
conversation up. eh?"
He started for the chicken coop. I followed slowly. He put each
chicken in the place marked off for him while I leaned against the
wall and tried to come out of my dreim. I can't go into detail as
to how he did it for I was too tired, hungry, and sleepy to pay
Again we started for the house but I was net glad for I expected
something else to come up. Ho went in, however, and he went to a
stand, opened a large book, fumbled with the numerous leaves for
about ten minutes, then said, "Hook No. 176 in the closet is empty.
Hang up your coat and hat."
Everything seemed to be in place but his wife. I didn't know where
she was and I guess he didn't either. She finally came home though
and we had supper.
I tried all evening to convince John that his methods were
wasteful, that he ought to leave his tools lying around any place
so that they would b- handy when needed, that the shop didn't have

GIRLS DUPE "MOTHER" For several years the ladies of the world
been generously presenting a great variety of styles in dress, all
of which seem to burden some parts of the body with an abundance of
fur, fancy work, unnecessary wings or tails, overgrown collars, etc
, while other parts almost crave for protection.
Mothers have been disgusted and worried as to the outcome of it
all. They have done all in their power to keep their daughters well
and properly clothed, but at last there has been an awful out-
burst by one "mother"!
Only a few days ago "Mother Earth" was seen garbed in a new white
garment which was quite sparing in some parts and exceptionally
bundlesome in others. Indeed, it even kept her from carrying on her
business as rapidly as usual.
Why has she so suddenly accepted the girls' fad?
It seems strange; I advise you, Father Time, to "watch out", this
is leap year.
That sure was some snow. —I. E. B.—Soph.

CO-OPERATION Today is an age of co-operation. Men and
governments alike are coming to realize this more and more.
Governments are establishing leagues, courts and councils to meet
this need; men are organizing clubs, bureaus and exchanges whereby
they may more easily co-operate with one another. Ocassionally,
however, there crops out an individ- ual who thinks that by being
different he is going to succeed. He believes that by isolating
himself from all co-operative plans he can further his own interest
to his advantage. He forgets that it is always the gander who leads
the geese. If you would be a leader, be one of the people—there is
no success, no advancement even, unless by co- operation. He who
co-operates most has the best success.
Nations arc prone to realize this. They would still continue on old
lines of each for himself. The dark years since 1914 are seemingly
forgotten. In 1 reparedness for another possible world conflict

Alumni Day to care for this need. Such a day to be any kind of a
success must be a big day. Bee Gee needs just such a day.
Commencement comes en Thursday, June 12th, this year—why couldn't
we have Alumni Dav, Friday, June 13th? Make it a leal day—have the
girls' gym classes give lawn dances, have a queen of the day; in
the morning have a track meet or a ball game, have a big Alumni
program in the auditorium, the Senior tree planting, and then in
the evening after the Alumni banquet have an Alumni party as a sort
of cap f:r the day. That would make the last clay of the year a
real day—would give the Alumni and former students a reason for
coming back to Bee Gee—would show them that the old school is still
going—would impart to them some of our enthusiasm so that they
could tell others what a good college they graduated from.

BATTLE WAGES BETWEEN CO-EDS AS GIRLS SCRAP OVER MEN
Men Are Scarce—Leap Year Conflict Will End With Many
Casualties—Males Frightened by Female
Rush—H'.-Men Are Scarcer, Say Lassies.— Terrible War—Rats,
Fly as Girls Rush for Men at Open- ing of School After
News from the front is still arriving which indicates that the
great rush for men in the Bowling Green corridors will not be
decided until the board of trustees arranges a drawing of men, in
which each girl will get a chance. Only four girls out of every
live will be disappointed in that way, say those who jire in close
touch with the situation.
Immediately upon the return of the co-eds to the college buildings
here was a great clamour for the men students which soon waxed into
a thrilling contest. Hairpins, rats, lipsticks, compact cases and
the like were seen to fly in every direction as the fair sex
tangled in efforts to prove their claim to their gentlemen
Envious watch is being kept by every clique of girls. The "Five
Sisters", hiding behind a mys- terious mask, warn all outsiders
against trying to -vamp" their men. The "Seven Sisters" say little,
but are ready at a minute's notice to do the'r c'.erndest.
Other groups are all set. Williams Hall girls claim that they have
the best chance to win the men because they have a "Webb" in which
to en- tangle the masculine sex. The town ladies declare that they
have the best chanre because they can get out oftener for dates. A
"Sharp" lookout is being kept, which spoils this, however.
The Glee Club girls are planning on serenading their men folks and,
in that way win their love. The Home Ec co-eds say that they have a
better argument. "If you want to appeal to a man, do it through his
stomach", is their watchword. They are practicing up on making
their gentleman friends favorite pie. TJm, Yum!
Gym girls are getting acquainted with all the stunts used by a
"cave man lover". Use 'em rough. is their motto. Girls in the
English department are composing poems that they hope will win the
love of the male.
Great quantities of books are coming into the college daily. Upon
investigation it is found that they are texts on "How to Propose",
written by Carlyle Kennedy.
The ratio of five to one between the boys and girls greatly
handicaps the co-eds. The thickest part of the fighting is not over
yet. say the war correspondents, and is likely to continue
indefin'te- ly. The trustees are planning to arrange a drawing of
In this way every girl will have an equal chance. The men do not
favor the plan. Some have been in hiding ever since the beginning
of the year. Recruiting stations reoort that many of the college
men have made application to enter th° service at the first
indication of a revival of the fighting.
Officials remain slent on the matter. The only ones who are safe
are the married men. At least they can be thankful for once that
they are merried!
DR. GRENFELL One of the privileges of the College Lecture
Course was to have heard Dr. Grenfell, who lectured in the
auditorium, January 15, 1924.
The lecture of this man unfolded one of the epic t- lories of work
and service in wild and inaccessible lands.
The bleak and barren coast of Labrador has made life unbelievably
hard for its inhabitants. The sturdy descendents of Devon and
Dorset, Scotch and Irish fishermen, who came over during the last
four centuries, have been practically cut off from contact and
civilization. The small permanent resi- dent population is
augmented each summer by some 20.000 deep sea fishermen, coming
from southern New Foundland, Novia Scotia, and the Maine coast.
Producing their share of the world's wealth, these courageous
workers, who are of our own race and religion, suffered untold
hardships in bleak north- kind and waters because the rudimentiary
accepted prerequisites for mind and body were utterly lack- ing.
Not even the simplest forms of medical and surgical aid were
The lecturer gave a remarkable insight into the daily lives of the
fisher folks of the Labrador coast. There is much of daring and
adventure in them, and there is also inspiring courage, rare
unselfish- l.ess and heroic self-sacrifice when danger threatens.
Dr. Grenfell has devoted practically his whole lifetime to helping
and understand- ing and sympathizing with these people in iheir
little known life. His life in the Labrador wilds has been
productive of ex- periences such as have fallen to the lot of few
other men. He speaks with a broad humanity, an ability appealing
straight to the heart and mind of all who hear him. His lecture was
enjoyed and appreciated by all. It would be a fine thing to hear
Dr. Grenfell again, this time as he gave more detailed accounts of
his great, good work in the frozen northlands.

NOTICE TO TEACHERS Things are looking much brighter now as to
positions. Our senator, Simeon D. Fess, has present- ed a bill to
congress urging that body to appropriate a. sufficient fund to
build at Washington a "National University of United States". The
proposal is that this institution cost $100,000,000. Our first
presi- dent. George Washington, proposed such an institu- tion at
one time and in his will set aside a consid- erable sum of monev to
be used on behalf of the plan. All these years that money has been
drawing interest, until today it is a quite considerable sum.
Teachers should be interested in such a Worthy project and learn

Finally it was bedtime and I was given a map in detail of my room
so that I might know where everything was located. I did not use
the map. I hunted through the dresser drawers, found a needle
cushion, procured a needle and thread, and did a little mending of
minor importance. I must nol have placed the needle back in its
original place for the next day I heard John's wife tell him that I
must have been monkeying with the needle cushion for the needles
were not in their places. That was too much for me.
It was nine o'clock. John's wife was upstairs. John was out putting
the right hen on the right nest, and I was left alone. I decided
that there \va™- a place for me, that said place was as far from

LETTERS FROM A PAULDING COUNTY FARMER TO HIS SON
Paulding, O., Jan. 12, 1924. Dear Willie: Your ma and me are at
the weather being far too cold for old folks such as us to go
traipsing off to town.
I see by the papers your basketball team has gone and lost several
games right in a row. Funny thing about losing. Willie, it takes
real stuff to lose once but to lose time after time and still keep
trying—well, Willie, only good sports are able to do it. Lots of
folks thinks that they are real supporters when they come out to
the games pulling for the team so long as it is winning—but they
aren't doing a thing—a winning team doesn't need support. Thr-
loser is the fellow who needs the help. Them being my honest
sentiments, Willie, I'm anxious to se^ how you stand the test. I
hope you have enough of the good, old, country kind of grit to hang
on and give 'em help, more than before.
You know, Willie, that Christmas Party your ma and me was to still
sticks in my memory. It was a rather plane, a rather simple affair
and it had i qu'et well mannered dignity about it that was wor-
shipful. Now there is Christmas parties and Christmas parties
Willie but your college gave the best your ma and me has ever seen.
It seems soil of as a part of the institution, the student body and
the year. Your ma and me felt that if we would u « back to Bee Gee
in fifty years from that Christmas we would still see much the same
service Nov.' Willie that don't mean that Bee Gee isn't progress-
ing: because we all must have some thines t^af don't change,
something sure and solid Tnstit'itio-s is the same as folks, that
party is a tradition and the added years will only increase its
p-iwer. Them's your ma's and mine honest sentiments.
Your letter tells me your mid-year examinations is close on to you.
Willie vou acted nos'tive scared. What's wrong with you? You've got
it soft—in col- lege you have examinations once a vear or twice —
in life you have 'em every dav. Don't fear vonr oxams boy. It is a
sure sign thev's a screw loose somewhere if you do. either you've
not studied or your teachers don't know their oats. I'd hate t.-i
think either of the above mentioned to be the casr-. Why Willie you
don't fear your basketball games do you? They are an examination of
vou and your roach to see what you done during the last week— so it
is with your exams. Thev find out rnw your teacher and vou has
teamed together during the half year. Of course Willie you might
have worked hard and your teachers too and still faU If such is the
case Willie all T got to sav is yr>:ir ma and me is backing you
while vou give er another round. Boy you have got to win vour ma's
got her heart set on't and me. well I ain't trving to ms»kn you
ambitious son but I'd like to have you show thai you"re a man—just
Well Willie I guess that is all. Tm not telling vou to be a good
boy Willie 'cause a man in college is growed UD. but I am stating
from mv 59 years r-f experience that although it demands qu'te an
effort sometimes it pays to do the right thing always.
Willie your ma is quite set on vou dressen warmer so she is going
to send your heavies.
Always wishing you the best. YOUR PA.
