by Pat Schweitx.r During the cold winter months
of the second semester of last year, eight Kohl Hal! boys who liked
swing music decided to start a dance band. They enjoyed little jam
sessions, and thought the rest of the students would like to see a
real band on the campus. That was the beginning of the Kampus
The eight boys, Ned Freeman, Willie Staub, Bill Fischer, now at
Camp Pickett, Vs., Joe Zurlo, Frank Zurlo, who is now in the Navy,
Doug Daughterman, Rex Ridge, and Norm Knisely, expanded their
organisation, got some music, and worked hard. By the time spring
rolled around they were able to play for some of the dances here
and several off-campus af- fairs.
This year the band is even bigger and better. It includes 13
pieces, a leader, two vocalists, and a busi- ness manager. The sax
section in- cludes Dick Manahan, Joe Zurlo, Lou LeVan, and Andy
Hotsko; brass, Rex Ridge, Nate Brenner, Bob Speck, Printy Arthur,
and Tom Huss; rythmn, Willie Staub, Doug Daughterman, and Norm
Knisely. Ned Freeman swings the
stick, and Steve Stavrides takes care of the financial end.
Eadie Johnson, a transfer from Miami, is the new contralto vocal-
ist, and Johnny Allen, another transfer student, swings out on the
The boys feel that the band is much better this year, as they get
new tunes each week, and have regular rehearsals. The brass sec-
tion is more fully developed by the addition of two new trombone
players, Prinney Arthur and Tom Huss. Each one of them plays
because he really likes it, not be- cause the financial
renumeration is large.
So far the boys have appeared approximately 12 times, and have
broadcast on the University pro- gram over WFIN once. They started
their out-of-town season last Saturday night at Findlay, but find
it increasingly hard to get transportation for off-campus
engagements. They will be willing to play for any campus organiza-
tion, benefit performances included, if that organization will get
in touch with Steve Stavrides far enough ahead of time.
What next semester will bring, none of them can tell, but the
band may have to break up if too many of the boys are called into
Air Corps Checks On Estimates
The Army Air Corps is the
only reserve branch, among
those open to college men, that is checking on nine week esti-
mates, Registrar John Bunn stated
The Army, Navy, and Marine Reserves are not looking at nine week
grades, but it is very likely that these branches will ask uni-
versities to send in the grades of all enlisted reserve men at
semes- ters, Mr. Bunn continued.
"It must be kept in mind that nine week estimates are only es-
timatea and not actual grades. These estimates are not counted in
on the final point average of the student, and are only an
indication of what sort of work the student has been doing."

273 Failures-But Grades Are Better Than Expected
One out of every five students enrolled at the University
had at least one unsatisfactory grade for the first nine
classes, a survey revealed today. On the whole, however, it was
proved that these grades
just given out were superior to those of the second semester
of last year. This is remarkable inasmuch as second semester grades
are always of a higher quality than first semester ones.

England and for two consecu- tive years has won a Chicago So- ciety

Best times for the public to see the displays is between 3 and 6
p.m. Monday through Thursday, according to Miss Grace Wills,
chairman of the art department.
The November meeting of the local branch of the American As-
sociation of University Women will be at 8 p.m. Friday in the art
headquarters of the University.

In general, the men of the uni- versity received the poorest
grades. This may be partially explained by the fact that the men in
our col- leges today have a great many more things to think of than
they ever have had previously. This is especially true of students
now facing the draft, and those students now enlisted in reserve
branches of the service who are under constant strain to keep their
averages up to the high standards required by the reserve
Another reason why the nine week estimates meant so much this
semester is the fact that the cam- pus sororities now have a new
rushing system effect. Those women who made grades at nine weeks
will have the opportunity of joining one of the eight sororities at
the university, while those who did not make the grade will find it
necessary to wait until the second nine weeks estimstes are
Two hundred and seventy three letters were sent to parents of stu-
dents with one or more failing grades, Registrar John Bunn stated.
Each of these letters con- tained a photostattc record of the
students grades and a letter ex- plaining the grading system now in
effect at the university.
However, the deans of the three colleges all agreed that the
mates were better than they had at first expected they would be,
and all three expressed the desire that each student would continue
to keep up the good work and make the first semester grades a
record that the university will be proud of.

Faculty Members Will Apply For Army Commissions
Eight faculty members signed applications for commissions in the
Army last week when Captains Divine and Fox of the Army Pro-

cruit men for teaching work in the Army. Men between 36 and 60
years of age, not subject to 1-A classification, are eligible. The
eight faculty members have yet to pass several tests before they
will finally be accepted by the Army.

All-Campus Show Set For Jan. 22-23
"Falling Leaves" is the name of the first independently sponsored
all campus musical comedy to be presented at the University, ac-
cording to Bob Crowell, publicity manager.
The theme of the show, which will be January 22 and 23, in the
auditorium, centers around a typical campus. College traditions
including seranades and a home- coming game have been incorporat-
ed in the plot
"The show is entirely original," Crowell said yesterday. The
musical scores have been composed by Olga Sonkoly, freshman from
Elyris. Ann Mm ray is writing the book.
The general committee consists of Elmer Brown; James (Pepper)
Martin, dance routines; Phil Miles, seta; Dorothy Ramsey, tickets;
and Bob Crowell, publicity.
Civilian Defense Coordinators Are Named For Campus
The second meeting of the civil- ian defense organization on cam-
pus was held last Wednesday night. The meeting was conducted by Sid
Lance, head of civilian de- fense in Bowling Green.
Meetings will be held weekly untIL further notice, Max Ihrig, chief
coordinator for the Univer- sity, has announced.
Arm bands and certificates will be issued to those students who
complete the course, Ihrig said, and added that over 100 students
are taking part in the program. He stressed the importance of other
students cooperating to the fullest extent.

Dr. Newburger Heads B. G. Juvenile Research Bureau
In the Laboratory Training School is a tiny office which
is the scene of a great deal of work which is probably the
most interesting and constructive on this campus, yet perhaps
least known to the students. This is the Bureau of Juvenile
Research which is operated by the State Department of Public Wel-
fare. The local office was opened in July and is in charge of Dr.
Maurice Newburger. Work is done in cooperation with the Depart-
ment of Speech and the local Read- ing Clinic. Children from twelve
counties in this area are examined, being referred to the bureau by
teachers, ministers, parents, doc- tors, nurses, or anyone having
an interest in the child.
The bureau acts in an advisory capacity to judges in cases of
delinquency. In cases of adoption wherein the home has been
determined suitable, the bureau examines the child to de- termine
if he is suitable for adop- tion.
The bureau is particularly in- terested in community problems.
Representatives are sent to examine school systems and methods of
teaching to determine inadequacies of teaching which may be a
serious handicap to the community. Re- commendations may lead to
the establishment of special classes where the need arises.
Wartime has increased the neces- sity y>t this type of work, and
cause of this appropriations have been increased, in spite of cuts
else- where in the state budget.
Dr. Newburger states that he is willing to cooperate with any
organization in acquainting it with the work of the

will be in the direction of Gerry Bircher and Ann Rohrbaugh. A
mummy case of cockroaches, an imaginary octopus, and six pen- guins
will appear in the play.
Dave Thompson will have charge of lighting effects, and Esther
Hedberg will manage costumes. The technical director is Phil Milea.
William Thompson is business manager.

Turn Over A New Leaf . . . Now that the nine week estimates are
thing: of the past, we can take time to make out new study
schedules and turn over the proverbial 'new leaf.' Although the
week grades were much better than university officials had hoped
they would be, this is not a sign that any student can afford to
coast the rest of the way.
The real job is just ahead! It must be kept in mind that the grades
we just received were only 'estimates' of our
ability and not actual grades. To those stu- dents flashing an
array of 'AW and 'B's', we only say this: You're off to a good
start, don't slip backward. A simple twist of the wrist can make a
student very sorry that he didn't put in those extra hours of
To those students with estimates of a lower calibre, we suggest
this: Try harder next time. It's harder next time. It's much easier
to do a little and obtain good grades, than it is to explain why
those grades were conspicuous by their absence from your
These are not ordinary times. We are not ordinary college students.
We are here for one purpose and only one purpose, that is to make
ourselves more fit for the job that will aid our government in the
war effort after we have received our diploma.
There is no place for the loafer in American colleges today. We are
all here on borrowed time, and should make the best use of that
time before we are called to our places in the field of battle, in
machine shops, or on farms.
The choice is up to us 1 If we are in school to 'just get by', then
we are not worthy to be called good Americans, for we are taking up
the time of the faculty, spending money to no avail, and very
likely taking up space that might well be used by some other
student with a will to apply himself and a desire to learn.

family at meal-time, and may- be for a few minutes in the evening,
but we'll be off having a good time, never thinking that our
parents would like to see us too, and would appreciate our company
much more than the gang.
Let's turn over a new leaf this year. Why not surprise ourselves by
staying at home long enough to get acquainted with our par- ents
again? They'll be interested to know what is happening here at

The slumbering Soviet front broke into flame early this week as the

aiding in the operations had paid an estimated cost of 1900 men
killed, wounded, or missing.
Meanwhile, Allied forces un- der Montgomery continued their pursuit
of routed Nazi-Italian di- visions in Libya. It was not clear as
yet just where the Axis troops intended to make a last ditch stand.
British troops clashed with Rommel's retreating rear guard at

friendly dimouts we have around here.
When you are returning to Bowling Green, think about what you are
coming back to. You're coming back to something many persons have
never known. Re- member that even here in Ameri- ca there still are

For the first time since Dunkirk, the church bells of England rang
out last Sunday. And President Roosevelt has proclaimed Thanks-

on the battle fronts haa been good. The long months of preparing

afternoon . . .
THINGS WE NEED Knitting machines for all of thoea Christmas
presents . . . More rainy weather so we can dispense with the
obstacle conrse . . . Fraa music at the Naet . . . More light at 8
a.m. . . . Something great big and important to do on Saturday
afternoon. . . . More vacations ... A nice big, fat turkey for
Thanksgiving dinner, but with tha price of meat as It is, we'll all
probably be eating haraburg
HAVE YOU HEARD THIS ONE? The other night the boys at the PiKA house
felt in the need of a little entertainment, and not having the
necessary transportation to the Capitol, they decided to amuse
themselves right at home . . . Poor little Bob Whitman entered on
the scene, mentioning the fact that he was goin to retire and would
one of the brothers please be sure to wake him for his eight
o'clock, because "that dollar toward Dean Conklin's rug sure would
come hsrd" . . . The boys immediately put their fiendish little
brains to work, and this is what followed . . . First they set all
the clocks in the house up, then they set Bob's alarm, got out the
breakfast dishes, fixed a little breakfast snack, and started
screaming to Bob to get up for his eight o'clock . . . The hour was
approximately 12:30, and the kid had been in bed for half an hour .
. . Well, he got half way to school before he happened to spy
another clock and realize it was all a hoax . . . Moral to the
story—call the operator for the correct time before getting up in
the morning . . .
PEOPLE WE HATE The typos that ait in their room with the

stoogonts who can't take a little rassing in this column . . . Boys
who think they must grow boards or mustaches just to prove they are
men . . . Threatening Editors . . . Editors . . . Profs who sweetly
murmer, "Well those grades fit into the curve nicely" just as if
they didn't sit up nights fitting thorn in . . . Cheerful people la

New Conceptions Of Thanksgiving
BY CINNY DALTON
"Thanksgiving comes but once a year, and when it conies it
brings"—well, just what does it bring?
Way back at the tender age of rompers, the tale of the Thanks-
giving feast was pounded, by fair means or foul, into the vacuum of
our little cranial cavities. We learned, with wide-eyed skepti-
cism, how the Pilgrim fsthers, hav- ing landed on the coooolldd
rock- bound New England coast, estab- lished a settlement,
harvested their first crop, and then set aside one day on which to
give thanks for their good fortune.
Yes, everyone is in no doubt familiar with the above account, but
the years between 1621 and 1942 have, alas, brought drastic changes
in the individual signifi- cances of this happy holiday. _So,
nosing about the campus, as usual in quest of things unusual, we
dug up such a variety of ideas on the subject, that we decided to
record a few gems for posterity. (Or anyone else who'll read
In answer to our query, diminu- tive Mary Helen Jaynes, bounced op
from her typewriter and shouted wildly; "Dishes I That's all
Thanksgiving day is, just one round of dishes after another!!" We
tried our timid best to comfort the poor girl, then folded our tent
and stole away.
Mary Lou "Daisy" Shelton, hav- ing carefully weighed the matter
with customary deliberation, ar- rived at the following bewilder-
ing conclusion: "Yep, Thanksgiv- ing always reminds me of by ap-
pendics. Their un-scheduled "fall- opening" cheated me out of a
turkey dinner one year!" Oh well, little brother probably copped
both drum-sticks anyhoo.
Approaching Lary Kuhl, "The Man" sighed wearily, smiled for-
lornly, and murmured, "Thanks- giving this year will mean nothing
more than learning thousands of lines and stuffing myself." That
last doesn't sound so bad, Mr. K.
Ginny Falknor added her dis- tinctive bit to our already amazing
collection with, "Thanksgiving is more or less just a
stepping-stone to Christmas as far as I'm eon- cerned!"
Ho-Hum, pass the turkey, Ma.

Knitting Comes Into Its Own As The Holidays Draw Near
Doodling, thumb twiddling, and such are definitely out this season,

for yarn, with every little lass sitting around the Nest, in class,
and even at the Clazel, murmur- ing "Knit . . . pearl . . .knit . .
.pearl . . . ", with tongue in cheek and eyes fastened to a bit of
much entangled yarn that will ultimately become booties for Brother
Bennie, or a snug pair of woolies for Aunt Alvina.
There's really nothing to this knitting thing and it's so inex-
pensive, my dear! Of course, there are little extras to buy, such
as half dozen extra needles, knitting bags, books of instruc- tion,
crochet needles, and the like. They'll add up a bit, but you won't
mind at all when you see the beautiful results of the lady in the
Knit Shop who demon- strates.

Anderson Five Scrimages With Former Stars
The basketball fans who have been regularly watching the Falcon
basketeers getting in their pre-season licks were somewhat
astonished last week to see five former Toledo stars of three years
ago troup out on the floor.
Yes it was true, it was the same Charley Chuchovitts, Al Alvarez,
Pat Hintz, and Charley Cupp that carried Toledo to the top of the
Sports Briefs BY ELMER BROWN
three years ago. Marshall Carl- son, all-state player of two years
back, rounded out the quintet.
The spectators were not privileg- ed to see this formidable five
play against the Falcons in a regulation game but the short
scrimmage proved that the 1942 candidates were more than a match
for the older men who were not quite in top shape.
Coach Anderson announced that the first team berths were still wide
open. The strongest candidates appear to be as follows: Sopho-
mores, Roger Phillips, who set the state tournament scoring record
when playing with Cridersville, and Harley Ash from the local high
school; Freshmen, Wyndol-Gray, the ball handling wizard from Akron
South; Joe Seigferd from Akron St. Vincent; Walt Blater- kk,
product of Akron Central; Bill Quallman, Toledo DeVilbiss star;
Charles Glvens, six foot six inch center from Mt. Vernon, and Bob
Ransom, also of Mt. Vernon.
Holdovers from last year's squad arc Captain Mike Kish, Wayne
Bordner, Joe Fox, and Zip Sher- man.
Don (Sid) Otten, six foot eleven inch center from Bellefountainc
was particularly effective in the scrim- mage against Chuckovitts
and Company. Sid is a transfer stu- dent from Michigan State aqd
will be ineligible unless Bowling Green drops from the conference.
He held the unusually high scoring Chuckovitts scoreless,
every attempted shot down to the floor.
Coach Anderson has a little over a week to iron out the last
wrinkles and present a smooth working quintet for the opener here
The chief worry of the former Toledo mentor is that all the can-
didates were individual offensive stars in high school. Anderson
built teams have always been noted for their speed and ball
handling but above all Anderson demands team work. And it is a
difficult job to mold stars who come from different schools into a
basket- ball machine in the short practices held thus far.
However the team work and ball handling has been improving with
each practice and a lot of the re- mainder of the practices will be
spent polishing up the defense.
The fans will be treated to some- thing new on December 9 when the
Falcons take on both the Toledo Naval Training Station team and the
Hillsdale College quintet for the first doubleheader in the his-
tory of the school.

Instruction courses for the winter months will include swim- ming,
handball, basketball offi- ciating, bowling, dancing, fencing,
boxing, wrestling, weight-lifting, and chess and checker
"A new section of the Pre- Induction School of Basic Rifle
Instruction will undoubtedly be held during the winter months,"
"Another new feature of the program this year," said Thomas, "is
the club division. This division puts on programs for clubs,
churches, and school groups."
At the present time, 19 faculty
members are regularly attending the "Faculty Physical Fitness
Program." Plans are being made to enlarge the program to include
the families of faculty men also.

going and the ball was resting on the Navy's 27 year line as the
On the first play of the second quarter the Cadet team was forced
to punt to Red Lowery on the Bee Gee 9 yard line. Lowery scupped up
the ball and zig-zagged 91 yards through the entire Grosse He team
for the Falcons first score. Popovich tried for extra point, but it
From here until the final play of the second quarter the Grosse He
team tried again and again to reach pay dirt, but they failed and
the Falcons left the field lead- ing 6-0 at half-time.
Grosse He opened the third quar- ter by marching 76 yards for a
score without losing the ball. It was Grosse lie's great fullback,
Riordan, that plunged over for the score. Lorenx then booted the
ex- tra point which placed the cadet team in the lead 7-6.
Late in the third period the Falcons climaxed a 49 yard drive for a
touchdown as Danny Mara- zon unleashed a deadly passing stuck. It
took just four playt to score a Maraton to Bordner past which was
good to the Grosse He 1 yard line as the third period ended. On the
first play of the fourth quarter Maraion slipped through tackle for
the score. Popovich kicked the point, and

of teams, our facilities will be taxed to the maximum, but every
effort will be made to take care of every team," added Thomas. ,"If

might even arrange to have intramural programs on Friday afternoon

Bowling Green took the lead 13-7. With leas than three
to play, the Falcons recovered a cadet fumble on the visitors 39
yard line. On the first play Hall made it a first down on the
Grosse He 29. Marazon then uncorked a beautiful 24 yard paas into
the waiting arms of Bordner on the five yard line who carried the
ball the remaining yardage for the final Bee Gee score. Popovich
missed the extra point. The final score reading Bowling Green 19,
Grosse lie 7.
Captain Ralph Quesinberry, Steve Randolph, Bob Eckert, and Lowell
Sielschott, all seniors, played their last game for the Orange and
Brown, and were given a great ovation from the fans aa they left
the gridiron for their final game. All played a great game.
Marazon and Bordner kept alive their chances for All-Conference
honors with their steller play.
The short, jolly man with the "onery" glint in his eye seen around
the men's gym, if you don't already know, happens to be Gene
"Tarpan" Thomas. "Tarpan" is Director of Intra- mural Athletics at
the University and also (I wonder how many of you knew this) a
student at Bowl- ing Green, an author, basketball official, and
former coach, all rolled into 200 pounds.
"Tarpan" was, according to a reliable source, born in an incu-
bator on November 5, 1920. His comment waa, "I've been half- baked
As a sophomore in Martins Fer- ry High School he coached a junior
high team to the city league basketball championship. After
graduation from Martins Ferry, Thomas entered Bowling Green and
while here he served on the athletic board and was appointed
intramural director 3 years ago.
Gene, probably one of the busiest men on the campus, has enlarged
the intramural program 4 times its former size. In an- swer to the
question of how large he expects to make the program here, Gene
related, "I'm not stopping until our program is the best in the
nation." Gene's daily dream is for Bowling Green to build an
intramural sports build- ing equipped with bowling alleys, tennis
tables, handball courts, and other recreational facilities.
Perhaps Bowling Green should be thankful they have Mr. Thomas
because "Tarpan" had an offer from a boys industrial school but
turned it down when he found out the ex-director at the school had
had a pitch fork rammed into his back. "Tarpan" haa also had an
offer from Father Flanagan's famous Boys School.
When asked when he was go- ing to start teaching Gene re- marked,
"I'll never teach uhtil I'm starving to death."
