OCTOBER 24, 1927
Interference We may think of interference as
something which hinders our progress, or we may think of it as
something which helps us reach our goal. Suppose we think of our
college career as a big football game where our instructors are the
interference that helps us reach our goal.
In football a man who runs as inter- ference for another player can
never make the touchdown, but if he is willing to work hard without
receiving much credit he can help to win the game.
The same principle applies to college life; it is not the purpose
of our in- structors to do our work for us, but it is their purpose
to help us all they can.
Do we as students always take full advantage of the help they are
willing to give us, or do we try to carry the ball alone? Too many
of us have the impress- ion that our instructors are here for the
sole purpose of keeping us busy busy doing something, be it worth
while or not.
One of the blessings of a small college is to have a faculty whose
members are personally acquainted with the students and take a
personal interest in their welfare. This seems to be applicable to
B. G. N. C. We are safe in saying that every instructor here takes
a vital and personal interest in what we accomplish here and in our
success after we leave. We need to spend only a few months in a
large school where everything runs by machinery, and we realize i
m- mediately what a rare opportunity we have here.
Let us be fair to our instructors; learn to know them before we
form our opinions of them, and at the same time give them a chance
to know us.

September 27—The speaker this morning was one familiar to many of
the students—Rev. Vorhis of the M. E. Church. Following his
characteristically inspiring address, an announcement of weighty
importance was made. Frosh rules, of course! "Of weighty impor-
tance?" Ask those who tried to break these rules.

audience with a costumed recital of French and Scandinavian songs.
Songs which aptly revealed her charming personality.

Freshmen Initiated Friday, September 30, was Freshmen
initiation day at the college. Incidentally it was a big day for
the upper classmen! It was the day when they might do their lordy
best to be pompous, and command- ing, for was it not decreed that
on this day the Freshmen must snap into im- mediate action at
command? And the commands were forthcoming, let us state. Not only
that but he must burst into song. What song? Why the College Song
of course, and all that day in every way he was "Hailing the dear

campus that morning was, "Hey, Freshman, sing that song!"
What would happen if all the students were in their chapel seats
promptly at ten o'clock oh Tuesday mornings?

How The Library Was Moved After several disappointments, the
move into the new Library building was made at the end of the Third
Summer term, the work taking two and one-half days and achieved
without interrupting the service. The Library Staff was as- sisted
by eight full-time workers and three former Student Assistants who
helped part time.
The 18,000 volumes were loaded on book trucks (carrying three
double faced shelves each) under the direction of Miss Carrie Iva
Whitmer, 1927. Two book trucks at a time were taken down on the
freight elevator and loaded on a Ford truck which delivered them
onto the platform at the rear of the new building, where the
electric elevator car- ried them to the proper floor. Miss Lucy
Veler, 1927, superintended the unload- ing and shelving according
to a plan previously made. All books were ar- ranged in order on

The party was conducted with the aim of giving a complete College

agreed that the attempt was successful.
We are sure that the college faculty noticed a vast improvement in
us after we had mastered the punctuation of such sentences as "That

other valuable but not less difficult lessons.

The following few lines were inspired by the earnestness with which
the girls go about their hockey. I still say that the only athletic
games a girl can beat me in are Croquet and Hockey.
When your eyes are blurred, And your soul is stirred With a zeal
for something big; When the nights are long And the days go wrong
And you feel like you'd have to dig;
Play Hockey! If your arms are weak And your heart-valves leak And
you feel like your going to die;
. If your studies lag And the hours drag And you're 'most too tired
Play Hockey! It's a wondrous game, Though it leaves you lame And
make your joints need oil; It'll cure what's wrong And won't take
long To set you right in your toil.

may have been important matters that have not come to our
attention. It is the sincere wish of the staff to give to the
student body and Alumni the information re- garding the activities
and life on the Campus. To do this, we need your co- operation.
Therefore will you see that the information gets into the hands of
staff. We assure you that it will be ap- preciated.

guiding suggestions as well as their support to- ward the social
side of the organization. We hope they may come back often to visit
us and help us over the low spots.
Another meeting was held at the same place on September 27. At that
meeting, Mr. Taylor was chosen as a faculty advisor to assist Mr.
Carmichael who asked the organization to relieve him of his active
duties in the organi- zation through this year.
On October 6 a meeting was held to plan for an invitational social

hundreds of letters, wel- coming the freshmen to this institution

corridor a stand was stationed, so that anyone finding difficulty
in registering, might easily find someone to aid him.
The first meeting was a sunrise break- fast with the Women's
League. About forty girls hiked out to a quarry on the Haskins road
and cooked their break- fast. Here everyone became better ac-
quainted, between mouthfuls of steak and marshmallows.
Our next meeting was in the form of a party. Under the able
leadership of Miss Shaw, we played many interesting games,
afterwards dancing. The faculty advisors present were: Miss

man at a meeting of the conference de- bate coaches held in Bowling
Green, on October 8.
Triangle debates were arranged with Toledo University and Bluffton

Duel debates have also been aranged with Ypsilanti State College,
Albion College and Michigan State College.
Several debates are pending which promise to add hot words and
firey ar- guments to the catalogue of the local debate organization
should they be ar- ranged.
Only two varsity debaters are in school this semester which means
that the freshmen candidates are to have an excellent chance to
fill the vacancy left by the graduation of last years men.

When woods begin to wear the crim- son leaf,
And suns grow meek, and the meek suns grow brief
And the year smiles as it draws near its death
Wind of the sunny south! Oh still delay In the gay woods and in the
air, Like to a good old age released from
care, Journeying, in long serenity, away.
In such a bright, late quiet, would that I Might wear • out life
like this, mid
bowers and brooks, And, dearer yet, the sunshine of kind
looks, And music of kind voices ever nigh;
And when my last sand twinkled in the glass,
Pass silently from men, as thou don't pass.

SPORTS Cross Country
Bowling Green at this season is step- ping into a new branch in the
field of athletics. Attempts have been made before to arrouse
interest in cross country running but not until this year have the
coaches met with any success. However this season prospects look
very promising with about fifteen men work- ing hard for a position
on the team.
The ordinary athletic fan little realize that intensive training
rules that a track man has to observe and he is probably rewarded
least of all athletics for his efforts.
Under the careful supervision of Capt. McDaniel and Coach Landis

Bee Gee Opens Season With Tie Game
Bowling Green opened the grid season with a furious game at
Otterbein ending with a 0-0 score.
Otterbein although handicapped by a disadvantage of considerable
weight managed to keep the fast Bee Gee team from scoring.
The weather was warm and play was slow with much time taken out for
in- juries to members of the two green squads.
Leitman, Bowling Green half was the outstanding ground gainer
tearing off several long gains through the Otterbein line. Carrol,
Bee Gee's fullback did ad- miration work backing up the line seld-
om leaving a ball carrier get beyond the line of scrimmage.
Our line formed a stone wall which the Otterbein congregation could
scarce- ly pierce while Warner's and Capt. Knecht's playing was
outstanding. Warner constantly went through and got the secondary
defense while many tackles fell to the lot of both men as a result
of hard work and lots of fight which was shown throughout the
Hard clean tackles with lots of drive characterized Bee Gee's
playing and their superiority was proved in the fact that the State
College made fifteen first downs to the Ohio conference team's
The coaches were pleased with the work of this trustys though they
did not win and the material promises one of the best teams ever
turned out at Bowl- ing Green.

Bowling Green Defeats Northern
October 1 was a big day in the foot- ball history of Bowling Green.

but no longer is it thus. They had lost many games of basket ball
and baseball to Bowling Green while in football they had held the
upper hand, but on a muddy field with the wind whipping the rain
into sheets that took one's breath Ada- Northern met an indomitable
spirit of fight that would not give way before their
Every man on the team blocked, tack- led and fought as they never
had before and that was the reason for their vic- tory.
The Northern boys upon getting the ball marched down to within
about five yards of their goal when Bowling Green held them for
downs and upon getting the ball fumbled resulting in a safety or
It was in the second quarter that Bowl- ing Green backed their
opponents to the goal and Fish left tackle, rushed through and
blocked a punt making a touchdown possible and resulting in a 6-2
score, neither team scoring thereafter.
The line blocked and tackled as only a winning team can while the
backfield performed to a no less a degree of per- fection.

B. G. Defeats Kent On October 15 at 7:30 a jubilant
squad of twenty four men left Bowling Green for Kent to prove their
super- iority to the sister State College. It was done and about
1:30 the next morning the squad returned tired, but happier than
when they left for they were vic- tors in a hard fought battle
which end- ed B. G. 13 and Kent 0.
The game started off with the same old fight and enthusiasm that B.

shown in previous games this season. The result was that the game
was play- ed entirely in their opponents territory.
Kent showed very little, their line somewhat superior to their
backfield, was unable to cope with B. G.'s which constantly opened
holes for the attack of their own backfield.
Swearingen starting at quarter did well for as little experience as
he has had. However he was soon moved up to end. Treece went in at
left half and Wolfe engineere dthe forces the rest of the
Treece and Wolfe, both green men in so far as experience, performed
in stellar fashino and proved they both deserve positions as
Carrol, B. G.'s fullback, was the star of the game, making both
touchdowns, bucking the first one over and tearing through the
center of the line for a fifty yard run on the second.
Gwynn proving himself on the alert, gave the B. G. boys high hopes
when he intercepted a pass and tore down the field for about a
thirty yard gain. Later Chapman, who substituted for Capt. Knecht,
followed Gwynn's example but did not get quite as far.
The whole B. G. line worked fine, con- stantly opening holes and
going through for tackles behind the line of scrim- mage.
