GIRL CAGERS BEAT
Junior College defeated the Collins
Memorial 44 to 11 which terminated
with a very un sports man-like Coll
team walking off the court late in
the fourth quarter after disputi
numerous decisions. Jack McGeath
who has refereed all of the girls'
games to date should be commended
for his fine work and at no time
should the inferior Collins team have
complained of his officiating. Bonnie Shelton proved to be a new star
by scoring 10 points and playing a
fine offensive game. Avis Parks
and Doris McVicker featured in their
smooth passing combination while
Jenny Wait was high scorer with 6
field goals and 4 free shots. Miss
Hubernaul proved to be a very
poor sport in leading her team off
the court due to the huge lead piled
up by Junior College.
Baltimore has developed a "Junior
Fire Department" of 30,000 boys who
are being taught the principles and
practice of fire prevention.
In India there are about 2,300
castes or hereditary social classes,
each of which establishes the status
and usually the occupation of those
who are born into it, and from which

In the United States today, not
more than 5 out of every 100 families

Lightning flashes in three directions—from clouds to clouds, from

Alekhine the chess marvel—Dr.
Alexander Alekhine, world's champion chess player, has often played
against a dozen or more opponents
while blindfolded, and has always
won a large majority of his games.
Recently he played 21 games at the
National Chess club, and on the following day called off every move—
over 1500 —- without error,
emerged with 12 wins, four losses
and five draws. At present Dr. Alekhine is touring the United for a series
of exhibition games.
Candle light "goes out" when you
blow it, because you blow away the
gases which feed the flame! In lighting a candle, the match must be held
to the wick long enough for the wax
to begin to melt and form gases.
A record put out—The flicker, a
species of woodpecker indigenous to
northern and eastern North America,
ordinarily lays six eggs. But if its
production be stimulated by robbing
the nest daily this production can be
increased considerably. Seventy-one
eggs in 71 days by a single flicker
has been produced, by actual experiment.
Bats have a peculiar faculty of
avoiding objects in their way. If a
bat is blinded and placed in a room
with threads and branches strung
about it will flit in and out without
touching a single barrier. Scientists,
endeavoring to learn the reason for
this skill, believe that bats possess
feeling intensely, the membrenes of
the nose and wings being filled with
numerous nerves in addition to blood
vessels. Many have curiously shaped
fleshy appendages called nose-leaves
around nose and mouth that are peculiar sensitive.
