W. A. A. Banquet Those who failed to attend the W. A.
A. Spring Banquet missed a jolly good time.
Four tables were each decorated to re- present the four spring sports. Shatzel had a clever baseball diamond. South an archery target. A track extended the length of the North table with sprinters in each lane and Williams represented Tennis with a miniature court and play- ers. Each table vied with the other in singing the peppiest and funniest songs.
The sports idea was carried out in the after dinner speeches. Margaret Powell talked on "Cupids Rival" and explained how to hit the Bull's Eye in one target while aiming at another. She claimed William Tell as her favorite historial character. Isabel Wagner's subject was "The Diamond" and she suggested some improvements in baseball such as increas- ing the number of bases so it would be easier to reach them, and enlarging the ball for greater ease in batting. "Love Set" was well described by Dorothy Decker. Altho she claimed that being only a Freshman, she was inexperienced.
Virginia Smith's talk on "A Perman- ent Record" was a nice tribute to the W. A. A. by our retiring president.
Katharine Sams, Katharine Taber and Margaret Wertz contributed to the pleas- ure of the evening with beautiful musical numbers. Dr. and Mrs. Williams, Mr. and Mrs. Landis, Mrs. Sharp and Mr. Steller were guests.
MAY DAY The May Day Ceremony is an old
English Festival celebrating nature's renewal of life in the Springtime with its promise of the coming harvest. It is an expression of joy in the coming of the leaves and flowers and the planting of seeds that will later bring forth abun- dance in the land. The May Queen per- sonifies the spirit of the springtime and all the festivities center about her. Games
dancing, singing are in her honor and for her pleasure. It is a time for beauty gaiety and overflowing joy.
Bowling Green's observance of May Day was a simple ceremony, but yet ex- pressive of the spirit of the ancient fes- tival. Nature furnished it's golden sun- shine and deep blue-sky, it's green leaves, grass and throne of verdure. The Queen carried beautiful roses, her pathway was strewn with petals and her atten- dants carried great bouquets of garden
flowers. The Jesters clad in gold and green and
jingling bells tried hard to be dignified during the processional, but as soon as the Qu:en was crowned and mounted her throne their spirits let loose and they capered before her in a lively, amusing dance ending with leap frog and cart wheels. Six sturdy peasants clad in gay colors, executed an intricate and vigor- ous dance which brought forth admiring rpplause. The festival was climaxed by a lovely May Pole Dance. Sixteen bare- footed maidens in gowns of pastel shades danced gracefully on the green and made a colorful picture as they wound the May Pole.
These gay dances were intersperced with songs that also expressed the spirit of the Day and added to the pleasure of the occasion.
Those taking part in the festival were: May Queen—Virginia Smith. Maid of Honor—Dorothy Cox. Jesters— Margaret Zaugg, Betty Mc
Kinnis, Virginia Drury and Dorothy Robertson of the 6th grade in the Train- ing School.
Peasants Dancers—Students taking I.Iinor in Physical Education.
May Pole Dancers—Graduating Soph- omores.
Heralds, Flower girls and Train bear- ers—Boys and girls of the Training school.
Queen's Attendants—Graduating Sop- homores.
Mu.icirns—Students of the Music De- par! ment .
Soloists—Kathryn Sams and Kathryn House.

Mr. W. F. Shaw, acting Trade Exten- sion Manager of National Lumber Manu- facturers Association, Washington, D. C. presented to Pres. Williams for the Bowling Green State College, a fine gavel made from timbers 112 years old, recen- tly removed from the White House in 1927.
Mr. Shaw was at one time Supt. of School in Bowling Green and for a time was connected with B. G. S. C. as In- structor, and made an enviable record as City Supt. and in his college English classes.
Mr. Shaw left Bowling Green, 0., sev- ere 1 years ago, going with the Lumber- msns association. His rapid rise to re- sponsible position is being followed with pleasure by his many Bowling Green friends.
The fine Gavel, now in the possession of the college, made from a Truss of the White House, that has supported the roof over the heads of the presidents ~of the United States for the last 112 years.
"In 1814, after the Battle of Bladens- burg, the British soldiers with their flaming torches, came thronging up Pennsylvania Avenue and burned the White House. President Madison' and his famous wife, Dolly, made a dramatic departure from the executive mansion, fleeing up Pennsylvania Avenue just ahead of the British.
Reconstruction was begun shortly af- ter the fire, the new roof being held- in place by sturdy wooden trusses. Today
these trusses, with their timbers are almost in as good a condition as when they were cut 112 years ago, are irtter-

CONCERNING EXAMS Who does not shudder at the thought
of those last two days of school teeming with examinations? The days on which one wishes to spend gay, lightsome hours with soon-departing friends, find him peeping frantically with notebooks and mumbling incoherent sentences in an ab- sorbed, half-crazed manner. And when the strife is finally over for the year, the cheerful goodbyes which one has planned have got all mixed up with de- ductive and inductive methods of reason- ing.
The Thursday of that fateful last week is graduation day. How can one throw himself whole-heartedly into the spirit of the occasion with that cruel word, exams, lurking in the background of his mind? When the commencement service is finally over, and the graduates are free to throw care to the winds, and go home, the under-classmen hear only a grim summons back to work. Dejectedly they count their blue-books and fill their fountain pens.
Try to picture a girl's dormitory for example, as a suitable place to study the last week of school. The sophomores and seniors are through; in fact, they wouldn't look inside a book if they were promised a teaching position in the fall. Meanwhile, the less fortunate students are trying to decide whether to go to a
show with some sopohomore, go for a walk or ride, attend a spread, or just stay in their rooms and study. Supposing it is a warm, inviting night in June and one's friends are very insistent, which would a normal person choose? It can readly be seen that so many distractions would deviate even the most determined scholar from his course. The serious, concentration mood which would prevail if the undergraduates took their exam- inations on Monday, Tuesday and Wed- nesday of the last week, would tend to lend greater significance and importance to the "finals". Otherwise, the under- graduate would assume a come-what- may attitude.
Aside from recreational distraction,s the last week of school involves cleaning the room and packing. In the midst of an Agriculture test one wonders if she remembered to pack the pin cushion in the suitcase, or whether her folks will arrive at three o'clock or three-fifteen. All of which, however, has no connection with why farmers build silos.
If examinations must come during the last week of school, then let them come on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, leaving Thursday and Friday as free from responsibility for the undergraduate as they are for the graduates.

eating examples of early workmanship. The timbers, all hand sawn, are held to- gether, not only by mortising, but with dowels and heavy wrought iron straps pounded out by hand. From one of these t'mbers the gavel is made.
The college prizes highly this souvenir and appreciates Mr. Shaw's thoughtful- ness.
Bedford: "Where are you going to eat?"
Clark: "Let's eat up the street." -Bedford: "Aw, no; I don't like as-
Smithy: "What are you going to do tonight?"
Tony: "I'm going to the Library to read Tennyson's "In Memoriam."
Smithy: "Do you care if I go along, I'd like to read some history references for Prof. Schwartz."
Tony: "Don't you enjoy going to school better since the library is open evenings. The environment just inspires us to study."
Smithy: "One of the English Professor said yesterday in class that she could tee such a marked improvement over
last year when the library wasn't open."
Tony: "I know I'm making better grades. You just can't study in these dorms. Now I get most of my work done from 7 to 9:30 in the library."
Smithy: "Can't you recall last year when we stood around about half an hour to get a book then you got your slip back, Does not Leave the Library."
Tony: "Do I remember, I just got so disgusted with the system I got most of my books from Toledo library."
Smithy: "I got mine from Findlay, then I could read when I had time."
Tony: "We are surely lucky to have the privclege of Library being open eve- nings in 1929-30."

The baseball team is having some real ball games this season. After a slight change in the lineup Coach Steller's out- fit trimmed Ohio Northern in an eleven inning contest. Earlier in the season Northern won over us. To continue close scoring games the Falcons emerged as victors over Bluffton in a ten inning af- fair, the final score being 3-2. In the nin- the inning a Bluffton man stole home thus tying the score. In the final inning Filiere did the same, giving us the nec- essary run.
As a matter of fact these close ball games proved tragic in the second game with Findlay. Findlay came out with the long end of the game and so won 8-7. We had beaten this team previously.
"Howy" Filiere is doing most of the mound work. Spengler, another able pit- cher, is always right there when called upon. Spengler has several more chances at it while Filiere graduates this year.
TENNIS The tennis squad is out for the 1929
Conference championship and it seems that they are not to be stopped. Defiance is the only conference team which holds a w.'n over Bee Ge3 while Bluffton easily trounced Defiance. The Falcons are sure of at least tying for the honors and if Defiance can be beaten by them all will be well.
Lerch, who has been playing as first man, has been readily putting his men away. Smith, Olds, Myers and Lockwood are developing a much more dangerous drive. The team as a whole is showing decided improvement. Most of those on the team will be back next year.
Triangle Track Meet The Falcons won the triangular meet
at Defiance. It was a close meet through
out. The scores were: Bowling Green 67; Toledo 54 and Defiance 42.
Eddington was the outstanding man of the day, scoring fifteen points in all. Other high point getters from Bee Gee were: McArter, Price, Hanna, and Ken- nemuth.
Eddington broke the conference record in the 220 yard dash, when he made the fast time of 23.6. This was .3 less than the former record held by Conrad.
DUAL MEET Bee Gee vs Albion, Mich., has proven
to be the best meet of the year. Several conference records were broken. The final score was Albion 73%; Bowling Green 57%.
Kennemuth ran the low hurdles in 27 seconds flat and by this fast time set a new conference record. He bettered the former record by 1 second.
Eddington broke the 220 yard dash re- cord when he came through in 22.9.
The most thrilling event was the mile relay. All of the boys did fine running. Bee Gee trailed until the final lap when Eddington came through for the win. McArter raised his time in the race.
Prof, and Mrs. C. F. Reebs have sailed for a European tour.
Announcement of Class Day The Junior and Senior classes will hold
their class Day exercises in the college auditorium Wednesday, June 5th, at 4:00 p. m. A highly interesting program will be presented, and all students of the college are urged to attend. The program will include moving-up exercises in which the Seniors give place to the Juniors of college rank.

Annual Womens Field Day The spirit of Women's Athletics in
our College is expressed by the slogans "Play for play's sake" and "A Team for Every girl and every girl on a team". We believe that competition is the "soul" of athletics but do not endorse the highly specialized competition where winning is mado the paramount issue. The Field Day this year was more of a…
