SPORTS The Dogies answered Coach Strong's call for basketball play- ers to the tune of 50 or more. The annual class tournament, was held on Monday and Tuesday afternoon. Monday the freshmen were pitted against the seniors in a lop-sided game. The seniors, who have only six men from w'nich to pick a team looked pretty slow and need polish- ing in spots although the score was 44 to 12 in favor of the upper classmen. Among the freshmen who showed up as good prospects were V. Farley and C. Taylor. The second game between the sophomores and juniors was wen by the sophomores. This game was a better contest than the first, but the sophs, ith P. Farley, W. Brook and Cummings outstanding had the edge during the whole game. The juniors lack height and teamwork although they have some clever ball handlers. In Tuesday's games the juniors took the freshmen into camp to win first place. The fastest game of the tournament, yet the most outstanding upset of all, came When the sophomores cleaned the seniors 10 to 6 in the finals for 1st and 2nd place. The balcony roared almost constantly, the game was and doughnuts were serv- shments and the party at 11:30 o'clock. we say let's have more if not better.

AN FRANCISCO.--The 13 raw vegetable, nuts and fruit eat- ing Estes soon will be 14, Mrs. St. Louis Estes, wife of the 73-year-old doctor and health lecturer who frowns on fish, fowl and meats, revealed she is ex- pecting a 12th child during a visit here in connection with Dr. Estes' lecture tour. Mrs. Estes, who with her chil- dren follows the strict diet set up by her husband as a guide to vigor and lasting health, astound- ed Hollywood neighbors and ,physicians in July, 1937, when, two hours after giving birth to a nine-pound girl, she was up directing the feeding and care of her llth baby. Dr. St. Louis (I'm Strong As Steel) Estes, who calls his 11 children, five boys and six girls, his "football team," was given six months to live in 1911 when creeping paralysis attacked him while he was practicing dentis- try in Chicago. It was then he started his diet of raw vege- tables. Improvement began al-" most at once, he says. He became an expert swimmer and gained robust health. He lost all his hair during the paralysis but now boasts a lux- uriant white mane which he at- tributes to the vegetable diet. Dr. Estes met the present Mrs. rest=,, his second wife, when she came to him, after his own recovery, to be treated for throat paralysis. A graduate of the Cincinnati Col- lege of Music, she had been forced to abandon her music ca- reer because of the throat ail- ment. Dr. Estes cured her with his raw vegetable diet. During a great part of the year the Estes vegetarians wear a minimum of clothing, allowing air and sunlight to supplement the vegetable diet. Insistent on a regulated diet, Dr. and Mrs. Estes are inclined to place little store by names for their l 1--soon to be 12-:-rugged youngsters, A three-year-old and s two-year-old respond re- spectively to Dimples and Chick- adee. The St. Louis name occurs six times. A son by the first marriage is St. Louis, Jr., and then the boys range to St. Louis VI.

Who are the two so-called trum- peters in the auditorium first per- iod who believe they are duplicates for the great Loule Armstrong? And who, pray tell, is the soph- omore infant who originated the idea of rolled-up pants legs on cold days ? As we looked around we noticed two_ sophomore boys who are wild and wooly west anyway, they wear cowboy boots to school. And who was the great big tall a blonde and handsome brute who Piana Mary were a chink instead of a Scott Rovilla were a spinner instead of a Weaver Mary were a buyer instead of Seller Jerry were wrong instead of Wright.

Who were the two dancers at the barn dance Friday wo did a solo flight, or was it a tail spin ? Who was the child who was sol angry when he saw a column in the Who's Who department of the last edition of the paper? He immed- iately demanded that the editors Dr. Bates, "if he gets plenty of sunshine, eats his food raw, and confines his intake to vegetables, milk and nuts." "Childbirth should have no terror nor greatly inconvenience a woman who follows Dr. Estes' diet," says Mrs. Estes. The other morning Miss Bostrom asked her English class to write a short informal essay. Imagine her surprise when a student handed in the following. "Some people are very prejudiced against liquor. I see no reason for this. I think that liquor is all right if taken in the right manner. And of coure in the right quanuLles. (We're shocked to tears.) Here are some of the "boners" that were made in recent examina- tions: After Napoleon married he fought many battles. (Hmm, in- teresting if true.) Two occupations of the civilized race are work and .looking for I work. (Really ?) Milton wrote "Paradise Lost" then his wife died and he wrote Paradise Regained." (That's a new one on us,) A woman's brain w-Aghs almost ,as much as the human brain. (Con. sult your doctor.) The president has the power to appoint and disappoint the mem- bers of his cabinet. (Ask the cabi- net.) The male inhabitants of Paris are called larasites. (Well, how about the U. S. A.?, What is the chief cause of di- vorce ? Marriage. ( Out of bounds.) The Spartan boys were beaten to death sometimes to see if they could stand i.t. A monsoon is a French gentle- man. (Oui, Oui.) She looked like an angel going down the street but she was only a human bean (Waxer, green or string ?) Since pro means the opposite of con can you give an illustration? Progress and Confress. (Foul ball.) Here is the answer Mr. Syverson gave yours truly When he was ask- ed what he thought of the recent Hit]er-Ohamberlain conference.- Chamberlain's faith in Hitler may be based on the fact .that Hitler did not swipe his umbrella. (Don't let the Fuhrer get hold of that, Mr, Syverson.) And then we hear the story of the movie theatre owner who had all his teeth X-rayed. Seems like he .wanted a preview of his coming extractions.
